2017 Flu Season Preventive Protocol and Treatment Suggestions

 

 

It is that time of year again! Although we know that eating healthy, working out and dealing with stress are important contributors to good health, there is always the chance of being exposed to the seasonal flu.  

A recent extensive Swiss Government sponsored research study concluded that Homeopathy is an effective healing modality as well as being cost efficient, see:  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dana-ullman/swiss-homeopathy_b_1340506.html    

                                                        

For a preventive flu protocol, take the remedy Influenzinum in the 9C potency or 30X potency. Take one dose (3-5 pellets dry) once a week at the start of flu season usually when the news media advises to get flu shots. Continue with one dose weekly for four weeks, then continue taking the remedy once a month during the remaining flu season.
 

An alternative to the dry dose, you can also dissolve 3-5 pellets into a bottle with approximately 4 oz. of spring or filtered water, (slightly more effective with the water method), adding about ten drops of clear vodka or Everclear grain alcohol and the remedy bottle will be good for several months. Then hit the bottle 10 times before taking each dose to activate the remedy and take one teaspoon once a week for four weeks (also provide to each family member) continuing it once a month during the remaining flu season. (If you use a one oz dropper bottle, follow the same protocol using four to six drops as a dose.) This remedy can be ordered through:

If you feel like you are getting flu symptoms use, Oscillococcinum, truly the most difficult to pronounce homeopathic remedy (o-sill- o-cock-SIGH-num,) which is produced by Boiron Laboratories of Lyon France (available at Whole Foods, CVS and Walgreens). It is proven to be 80-90% effective in treating the flu when taken within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. A double-blind study by Rosemarie Rapp, PhD. at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany shows that it significantly decreases flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache, muscle aches and fatigue. Take as directed in the dry form. Make sure, as with all homeopathic remedies, you have no food or drink (nor brush your teeth) ten minutes before or after taking the remedy. If by chance flu symptoms continue, it would be best to consult with a homeopath for appropriate remedies to alleviate any symptoms.
 

Three excellent books for flu and other health issues are Everybody’s Guide to Homeopathic Medicines by Ullman and Cummings, also available through Homeopathic Educational Services, Your Natural Medicine Cabinet by Burke Lennihan and The Homeopathic Treatment Of Influenza by Sandra J. Perko.
 

Please feel free to call me with questions, further research supporting homeopathy (found on my web site, www.drkennethsilvestri.com under Homeopathy) or to make an appointment for a complete homeopathic assessment, which will determine your constitutional remedy and a good base line for treating any future physical or emotional ailments.
