Many of you have asked for more extensive guidance on remedy selection for flu-like symptoms. In this article, I will talk briefly about the homeopathic remedy Influenzinum.
This remedy is made new each year from flu strains that are most prominent in a given year, the same strains as one will find in the annual vaccine.
One should think of this remedy whenever one is beginning to experience even the slightest flu-like symptoms. Such symptoms may include fever, chills, body aches, head or chest congestion, headache, runny nose, and fatigue.
If you or someone you know is beginning to experience flu-like symptoms, dose with either a 30C or 200C potency of the remedy to start - placing one pellet of Influenzinum under the tongue or one pellet in water, stirring vigorously and taking teaspoon doses as needed. Always cease dosing when relief begins and only re-dose if symptoms again worsen. As with any medical condition, consult with your physician if you have any concerns about the severity of your problem as it may first require medical diagnosis and/or intervention and monitoring.
