Homeopathic Flu Treatment Instructions
The principles used in the practice of homeopathic medicine are very different from those used in both pharmaceutical and herbal medicine. A separate knowledge of western pharmaceutical medicine and its pharmacology will not apply to the practice of homeopathic medicine. A lack of understanding of the principles of homeopathic medicine and a lack of familiarity with its unique system of pharmacy is generally a barrier to its acceptance by those trained only in “modern” medicine. To make the best use of the homeopathic flu remedy kit, it is important to read and compare from a list of symptoms associated with the flu to determine the most appropriate treatment prior to selecting one for use. Choosing the wrong remedy may delay the benefits coming from picking the right remedy but cannot otherwise cause any harm.
Instructions for Use
When should I take the remedies?
Vaccination: Begin vaccination treatment when the possibility of contact with the H1N1 virus is there. The vial of pellets should be adequate for the flu season for a family of five. In case of a shortage of pellets being available for extended family members, the instructions for diluting the pellets into a water form of the remedies (instructions given under the treatment section) can be followed to extend the remedy to further family members.
If flu symptoms appear: The treatment of infectious diseases with homeopathic remedies is best when individualized to the symptoms of each patient. At the first sign of flu-like symptoms, when swine flu is known to be present in the community, select the most appropriate remedy and begin treatment using the method explained below of diluting the remedy into a water solution. When the choice between the remedies seems difficult, the remedy that has been shown to be effective in most other patients will often be the best choice to start with.
If you are having difficulty deciding between two remedies, take one dose of one of the two remedies and repeat that dose in 30 minutes. If you feel better, continue with the initial remedy as needed. If you do not notice a lessening in the intensity of your symptoms, switch to the other remedy that seems to match your symptoms and take two doses in the same manner. After this trial, proceed with the remedy that seemed most effective.
If after a period of time, under homeopathic treatment, your initial symptoms are gone and other symptoms become more prominent, you may change remedies.
How should I take the remedies?
Vaccination: Two pellets of the remedy should be taken at the start of the flu season and then the same dose (two pellets) should be repeated once a month. In the case of close contact with infected persons, repeat the dose at that time and at one-week intervals for three weeks.
Treating symptoms of swine flu: At the first appearance of symptoms of flu, expect to take the remedy dose several times a day for the first several days. There is no harm in taking the remedy more often than this on the first day or two.
If the correct remedy has been chosen, the patient’s symptoms should be mild and the health of the patient not in great danger. If there is not a healing response to the remedy either the right remedy has not been chosen or the patient’s vitality and ability to recover is significantly compromised.
Once a healing response is underway, the remedies will be needed in decreasing repetitions. The remedy need only be repeated according to the symptomatic response of the patient. As long as improvement continues, it does not need to be repeated. As soon as further improvement stops (and symptoms of the flu remain), repeat the remedy.
The use of homeopathic remedies does not preclude or conflict with other treatments. In all cases, you must exercise good judgment and not compromise your health or health of another.

This is where the homeopathic reality completely befuddles those entrenched in pharmaceutical medicine. The reality of homeopathic medicine has been shown to be a reliable process for more than 200 years but does indeed seem to fly in the face of a Newtonian understanding of the physical world. To all those who fail to fully understand the quantum physical reality of our world; you must accept the reality of homeopathic medicine on faith (faith being the ability to believe in something that one is not capable of completely understanding.) Since we are dealing with your health, at a time of disease; be comforted by the likelihood that nothing homeopathic can hurt you and has a reasonably good chance of being quite helpful in your recovery. The return on your investment and possibilities for reward versus risk are very favorable. Again, do not be cavalier with your health. Seek professional help when necessary.
