Homeopathic flu/cold remedies?
I thought I saw somewhere on this board someones recipie for a hot soup or beverage good for homeopathic flu/cold remedy?

Immune system booster.

I believe it had oregano in it of some form.

Beside Echinacea/Goldenseal liquid, and garlic, what else do any of you use to help fight off the onset of the flu or a cold and how do you administer it?

Ive heard of hydrogen peroxide but dont know how to administer, and nebulizers to use with something as well...

Any thought or ideas would be appreciated!

I jsut started to get a scratcy throat yesterday and woke up this morning with the beginning of a sore throat.

Yesterday I took a clove of garlic with some lemon/honey/bourbon tea, and took an Airborn when I woke up, but I need to run to the herbal store to grab something before it takes over.

2000mg of vitamin C every 3 hours. Full 10 to 12 glasses of distilled water today and until the thing is over. If possible stick to vegetable diet also until its over.

you may have loose number 2s at first. Dont back down. Your symptoms will disappear with in 2 days. If you have family that live in the same house.. have them do the same minus the diet change immediately. You are not sick because of a virus per say.. you are about to get sick because your immune system is low.

Good luck.

This is good advice. Also eating raw strawberries and fruits will give your body the needed antioxidants. You should really think about what you are ingesting.. If you constantly intake minor toxic foods or environment and do not supplement your system with the nutrients it needs to combat this diet or whatnot you will most likely get sick. (low immune system)

I take 2000mg every 3 waking hours every day. I have not been sick in 2 years. This has been the best advise I have ever gotten.

only Cons that I encountered.

loose 2s (at first)
oily skin (at first) body dumping bad shit through pores
THIRSTY for water more

Pros+
endlesss.. look it up.

Re: Homeopathic flu/cold remedies?
For the sore throat:

Ingredients:

1. Corn Starch
2. Natural Sugar
3. Water (enough for a bowl)

With a small bowl of cold water add two heaped teaspoons of corn starch and mix. Next, bring the water to boil. Slowly stir in the starch mix until you get a very thick consistency (the starch is a thickener). Turn the heat to low--don't allow it to burn. Then, add the sugar until it's quite sweet.

You drink a bowl of this while it is hot before bedtime. In the morning if you still have a sore throat repeat.

BONESET

[link to www.planetbotanic.ca]



Boneset’s power to relieve flu symptoms is unparalleled. Before the age of the prescription pad, doctors kept lots of boneset on hand for the flu season. The Eclectic physicians used it to treat influenza, constipation, rheumatism, influenzal colds, fevers, poor digestion, night sweats, achy bones, pulmonary inflammation and congestion, cough, chest soreness, postinfluenzal gastric irritation, biliousness, skin diseases, eruptive skin diseases, remittent, intermittent, and typhoid fevers, general debility, headache, and hoarseness. As you can see, almost all of the symptoms of flu are treated by this one-plant medicine chest, particularly fever.

There is probably no plant in American domestic practice that has more extensive or frequent use than boneset. The attic, or woodshed, of almost every country farm house has its bunch of dried herb hanging, tops downward from the rafters during the whole year, ready for immediate use should some member of the family, or that of a neighbor, be taken with a cold… the use of a hot infusion of the tips and leaves to produce diaphoresis, was handed down to the early settlers of this country by the aborigines, who called it by name that which is equivalent to ague-weed.

The plant gets its name directly from its use in treating the flu. One of the first flu symptoms is aching bones, hence the old-fashioned name for the illness, break-bone fever. People who wanted to put an end to the aches and pains associated with the flu found that boneset did the trick.

So what happened? Where has boneset gone? If you ask most Americans today what boneset is, they couldn’t pick it out of a field if they had a gun pointed to their heads. It is certainly not hanging from their rafters. One of the most powerful plants for treating the flu can be found growing wild in most wet places in the country, but few even know it exists.

Homeopathy for Flu/Cold

There are several homeopathic remedies available to combat flu effectively. At the very first sign that flu is developing, take 1/2 tube of Anas barbariae (marketed under various brand names, including Oscillococcinum) every two hours, for a total of five doses. Combination flu remedies work in majority of cases if you take one in the first 4 to 12 hours after you start having symptoms. Follow the dosage recommendations on the label of the remedy you choose. If it’s going to work, you should feel relief with a single dose.

If the flu persists, you’ll probably need a more specific remedy, such as a 12C or 30C dose of Eupatorium perfoliatum, which is good for a flu that causes aches and chills in your back and bones, fatigue, thirst and bad headaches. If you feel dizzy, drowsy and weak but momentarily better after urinating, try a 12C or 30C dose of Gelsemium. Take up to four doses of one of these flu remedies in 24 hours. Then if you don’t feel better, see a professional. Below listed are several specific homeopathic remedies that are useful for flu.

If you are feeling chilly, restless, and weak, choose Arsenicum album. This is for the person who feels worse in a cold room, but wants something cold to drink. You probably have a red nose with runny nasal secretions that burn the nose and upper lip. You also prefer to sit in bed with books, magazines, and a television, and be left alone, but would like a bit of attention every once in a while. Take one dose of Arsenicum album 30Xx or 9C, as directed on the product label, three to four times a day for up to eight doses.

Specific Remedies

Aconitum napellus: This remedy is useful for a flu that comes on suddenly and intensely accompanied by fever, anxiety, constricted pupils, and strong thirst.

Apis mellifica: If a person has dry fever that alternates with sweating, facial flushing, and a very sore throat with swollen tonsils , then this homeopathic remedy may be prescribed. Pain may extend to the ears, and the eyelids may be swollen. Exposure to cool air and cold applications may bring relief. Despite the fever, thirst usually is low. The person can be very irritable, disliking interference.

Arsenicum album: The person feels chilly and exhausted. Exhibits an anxious restlessness. He/she may be thirsty, but often only takes small sips.

The person’s head usually feels hot, while the rest of the body is chilly.

Other symptoms include a very red sore throat, a pounding headache, a nagging cough, or other throbbing and inflammatory symptoms. The person’s hands and feet may feel cold despite high fever. Chills and heat may alternate.
