Homeopathy and Influenza

Offers for vaccinations of all types are seen all over.

If it weren’t for the weather changing to give us a hint that Flu Season is forthcoming, driving around your local Target or Walgreen’s would be a dead giveaway.

Everywhere you look there are signs encouraging you to get the flu shot–and perhaps others.

Before you get sidetracked and enter the store, you should know that Homeopathy has a long track record of helping people who have influenza.

There are three ways homeopathy can help prevent influenza.

First is a good constitutional remedy.  Any acute illness is about opportunity.  Most germs are opportunistic, and the flu virus is no exception.  The best way to prevent acute illness is not through vaccinations, but from becoming more healthy in our core.  A constitutional remedy strengthens your whole being, making you less susceptible to any illness, including influenza.  A constitutional remedy can be recommended at any time, but it does take time to work, each year, making you stronger and stronger.

Second, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the developer of the principals of homeopathy, spoke of something called the genus epidemicus.  What he was referring to was the most common remedy or remedies that are needed when an epidemic is going around.  During the influenza pandemic of 1918-1919, the most common remedy was Gelsemium, followed by Bryonia. Influenza could have been prevented by giving preventive doses of Gelsemium or Bryonia or both to family members and friends of those who suffered through it.  It is different each year and it cannot be determined which remedy will serve this purpose until several cases have been helped with a remedy or remedies.  Fortunately, with the internet making communication easier, homeopaths are in touch each flu season to share information.

Finally, homeopathic nosodes–remedies made from disease sources–can be used to help ward off the flu.  Referred to as homeoprophylaxis, studies have been conducted all over the globe showing the efficacy of this approach.  Please read the references here to learn more.  For influenza, homeopaths can use the remedy called Influenzinum to lower the risk.  When vaccines are developed, they use a particular strain of the flu each year to make a new shot.  The theory presented is that you are only immune to the current strains and each year there are new strains.  This may be true, or it may be a money making scheme.  Because homeopathy is more concerned with symptoms than with influenza strains, we can use the same dose of Influenzinum each year to reduce the risk of illness.  If you are interested in getting a few doses of influenzinum, please click here.  Put a note in the comment section that you are interested in lowering your risk of catching influenza with nosodes.

Personally, I would definitely invest in option #1, the constitutional remedy approach.  I would also try the nosodes, #3, especially if it is close to flu season and you don’t have a good constitutional remedy.  Finally, if necessary, I would try #2.

Back to School with Homeopathy

Homeopathy can help make school better.

It is hard to believe it is August already.  That means that school starts in less than a month, at least in Minnesota, where, by state law, most schools aren’t allowed to start before Labor Day.

Summer seems like a good time to relax and not have to deal with the hustle and bustle of the school year if you have children.  But with the start of school, many of the old problems crop up again.  Maybe your child is anxious about school, maybe there is some ADD/ADHD you are dealing with, or asthma during Gym class.  (Just thinking about Middle School Gym class takes my breath away—and not from the exertion.)

Maybe it is time to not have to deal with those problems anymore.  Homeopathy can help.  Here are just a few ways:

Shots:  Those back to school shots are “required” at certain grades.  The reason “required” is in quotation marks is because that is what the Minnesota Department of Health would like you to believe.  Fortunately, in Minnesota, we have Conscientious Objector status available to parents and their children.  If you don’t wish to vaccinate your child, you can complete a form, have it notarized and turn it in.  The form is readily available on line or in the school district office.  There are really only a couple of states where there are no exemptions possible.

But what if you are concerned about the childhood diseases?  It is true that as children get older, some of the diseases are less of a concern, but others can show up worse in a teenager.  That is actually the rationale behind the order of the vaccine schedule.  If you are concerned about this, Homeopathy has an answer in Homeoprophylaxis (HP).  Homeopathy has been helping to prevent disease since the early 1800’s when Samuel Hahnemann used homeopathic remedies to ward off scarlet fever, typhoid, and other diseases that were going around in epidemic proportions at the time.

Instead of going through the diseases, you can have the energetic disease without the symptoms of the disease, and still receive protection from those diseases.  It takes about 3 years to complete the basic HP program.

Anxiety:  Some students just simply don’t function well in school.  Perhaps there is a subject which they don’t understand, maybe some performance anxiety or the dreaded social issues, which often seem impossible to tackle.

There are homeopathic remedies for the kid who gets picked on, or sweaty hands and shaky knees during public speaking class.  Even Learning Difficulties can be helped with homeopathy.  Remember, homeopathy isn’t just about physical symptoms, but mental and emotional ones as well.

ADD/ADHD:  I’m very excited to put into practice the new training I received in May.  I wrote a blog about CEASE therapy for Autistic kids.  It turns out that it can also help some ADD/ADHD symptoms as well.  Not every child would need the CEASE protocol, but many can be helped with it, and if not, then good old fashioned Classical Homeopathy can also help.

There is still time to make the school year better with Homeopathy.  Call if you need help.

Preventing Illness with Other Illness

We are in the midst of a Pertussis outbreak in the US.

courtesy Freedigitalphotos.net

My family has not been untouched by this illness, which is also called Whooping Cough, but this is not a surprise.

My youngest son got it in school and the rest of us from him.  Usually you think you merely have a cold with a cough when you first get it.  By the time you figure it out, you are not contagious anymore.  OOPS!  Amazing how nature created this little bug to perpetuate itself by having humans think it is a common cold until it is “too late”.

Homeopathy helps.  So does acupuncture.  There are many options.

The Pertussis vaccine is frankly, pretty “puny”, as one MD blogger described it.  It doesn’t give you lifelong immunity.  You are lucky if you get 8 years out of it.

As I look online to figure out the lifelong immunity questions, I am finding that most so-called experts are suggesting that even suffering through a case of Pertussis will not confer lifelong immunity.  I have no evidence to suggest the following is true, but it is something to think about.

There is a belief by many that the reason so many people are developing Shingles (which is caused by a reactivation of the Chicken Pox virus) is because parents and grandparents are not being re-exposed to the virus by their children and grandchildren when the youngsters get Chicken pox, because the vaccine is reducing the number of wild cases.  And just a side note for those of you who are looking for other children with Chicken Pox, your child can also get exposed to the virus by associating with someone who has Shingles.

(If you are reading this thinking you are going to post a comment on how awful it is to intentionally expose a child to a virus, do not bother to comment.  You’ll never convince me otherwise and I won’t post your comment. Besides, aren’t you also exposing them to a virus with a vaccine?  Make that a virus and a bunch of toxic chemicals….)  The re-exposure to the virus asymptomatically reactivates the immune system towards that virus and Shingles has less of a chance to rear its ugly head.  Dr. Mercola refers to Shingles as the Evil Cousin of Chicken Pox. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/11/02/chicken-pox-vaccine-creates-shingles-epidemic.aspx

I am starting to wonder if Pertussis used to be a lifelong immunity, but with the vaccine, no longer is lifelong, in the same way that not being exposed to the Chicken Pox is causing problems later in life as well.  Perhaps being exposed to a child or grandchild with Pertussis reactivates the immunity as well.

Homeopathy to the rescue, once again.

Since the early 1800’s, Homeopathy has been used to prevent disease.  Homeopathy is basically introducing an artificial disease, although it is energetic, rather than material.  So just as exposing an adult to the wild Chicken Pox virus or possibly the wild Whooping Cough bacteria can help prevent symptoms of the disease from manifesting, this can also be done with a homeopathic dose of the virus.

If you already have the Chicken Pox, Shingles or Whooping Cough, homeopathy can be extremely helpful.  Please call for remedy suggestions (there are many, so it is hard to put them in a blog).

If you wish to prevent future Shingles, a few homeopathic doses of Zoster in two different potencies has been shown to prevent Chicken Pox and presumably, reactivate the virus to prevent Shingles.  Of course, Stress is a huge factor in the appearance of Shingles, so homeopathy can help with that as well. Now would be a good time to re-expose yourself to the Varicella Zoster virus energetically, rather than risk the Shingles “vaccine” and its toxic ingredients at your local Walgreen’s.  BTW, the Varicella Zoster virus in the Shingles vaccine is sourced from a child with a naturally occurring case of chicken pox.  Good thing the Chicken Pox vaccine is so lame and there are enough “refusers” that Merck can make money off these children.

The same is true of Whooping Cough.  The Pertussis bacteria is included in any tetanus shot you get these days.  I know of no one who has ever had both Pertussis and Tetanus at the same time, so I am not sure the logic behind including them together.  Nonetheless, a homeopathic exposure to Pertussis has been shown in studies to create an immunity to Whooping Cough and has been doing so for at least 100 years.

Let me know if I can help.
