Tackling Flus With Homeopethy

August 2009

Tackling Flus With Homeopethy

The recession has brought a fresh look at how families treat illness and care for their health. Home gardens, nutritious foods and warmer homes are all part of staying healthy. However, there still remain the ups and downs of teething, fevers and ear infections, to name a few; that require immediate treatment.

For these and more chronic problems such as skin and respiratory conditions to depression and phobias, many parents are realizing Homeopathic remedies and treatment are proving to be highly effective.

Families are as diverse and interesting as the remedies that treat them. Homeopathy offers a natural alternative to support the immune system and restore balance on all levels. Homeopathic remedies gently and safely initiate and support our bodies’ healing, bringing about speedy and lasting relief.

This winter has brought with it the onset and spread of a new Influenza virus (H1N1 A). Registered Homeopaths with NZCH (New Zealand Council of Homeopaths) have been successfully treating patients manifesting with influenza, prescribing Homeopathic remedies that address the particular set of individual symptoms they are presenting.

The H1N1 flu is closest in type to the 1918 flu epidemic treatment of which gave Homeopathy its public credibility as the resulting cures attest. There were fewer deaths recorded in the Homeopathic hospitals to those treated in other hospitals. In USA the mortality rate by conventional treatment was 20-30% while Homeopathic treatment managed a 1-3% mortality rate. The H1N1 Influenza A virus is still in the New Zealand community. It is important if you feel unwell with fever, chills, aches and pains with tiredness to seek advice and treatment. Homeopathy is one therapy that is beneficial in such cases, managing the acute stage and shortening the length and severity of the flu.

New Zealand has a thriving Homeopathic community with a Council that ensures maintaining the highest educational standards for all registered Homeopaths. If you would like to know more concerning Homeopathic treatment of flus, please contact The New Zealand Council of Homeopaths www.homeopathy.co.nz who can find you a registered Classical Homeopath (RC Hom) in your area.
