Homeopathic Flu Prevention: A safe and effective alternative to the flu vaccine

October 12th, 2009

The classic flu, caused by the influenza virus, is characterized by abrupt onset of fever, headache, muscle aches, chills, loss of appetite, with fatigue and weakness after a 1- to 2-day incubation period. Respiratory symptoms such as cough, sore throat, and nasal discharge are usually present at the onset of illness, but systemic symptoms predominate. Most people feel better after 1 or 2 weeks. However, for some people, the flu leads to more serious health problems, such as pneumonia.

In January 2004, the Center for Disease Control reported the flu vaccine was at most 14% effective in preventing the flu. Just recently, former president Bush revealed to the nation that in the event of an avian flu pandemic no successful vaccine would be developed until several months after the pandemic had begun. In addition to being rather ineffective, the flu vaccine contains additives and preservatives that are potentially harmful. The most dangerous of these include Formaldehyde, a known cancer-causing agent, Aluminum, which is associated with Alzheimer’s disease and seizures, and Thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative that can result in brain injury and autoimmune disease.

Doctors all over the world have used homeopathic flu prevention since the early 1900s. Homeopathic medicine states that “like cures like”. By giving your body a homeopathic dilution of the influenza virus, your immune system is primed and strengthened against the virus. In addition, the adrenal glands, which react to any stressful event in your body, are supported by other homeopathic medicines in the flu protocol. Together, these medicines prepare your body for exposure to all strains of bacteria and viruses that are prevalent throughout the fall and winter months.

At Vitalia Natural Medicine, we recommend a flu prevention protocol that is used by Naturopathic and Homeopathic doctors throughout US, Canada and Europe. The homeopathic preparation contains various strains of the worst flu epidemics of the 20th century, specifically formulated to boost immune function and stimulate the body’s own defenses. It is combined with a second homeopathic, which helps our body deal with everyday stress that can lower the immune system. This protocol is safe and effective for children, adults and the elderly population, and is specifically indicated for immune compromised individuals. It is most effective when taken preventatively, and is available through licensed practitioners. Please contact your Naturopathic or Homeopathic Doctor for more information. www.vitalianaturalmedicine.com
