Using Homeopathy for Colds, Coughs and Influenza

It is the season of colds, coughs and the dreaded influenza (“the flu”)! These illnesses are often unavoidable and usually harmless. Typically the worst part is that they interrupt our routines and make us miserable for a few days.

The bothersome symptoms of these acute illnesses can be treated with homeopathy. Homeopathic remedies help the individual come back to health swiftly and more comfortably. When provided with the right homeopathic remedy, the body works to complete the illness rather than leaving lingering symptoms.

Using homeopathy for colds, coughs and influenza is something you can do at home. I recommend purchasing a home homeopathic remedy kit and reference book. When someone in your home falls ill, you can research the symptoms and find the best remedy. If you have difficulty finding an effective remedy, you can also contact your homeopath for an expert recommendation on your illness.

When conventional medicine uses antibiotics to treat a simple infection or cough, the body is not able to finish its quest to bring itself back to balance. A similar scenario occurs when administering Tylenol (acetaminophen) or aspirin to reduce a fever. The fever is inhibited from performing its task of fighting off the infection. In homeopathy we call this suppression.

Often we see chronic infections of the sinuses, ears or lungs due to individuals suppressing the symptoms of a simple cold. These infections can lead to more serious medical conditions and interventions. Homeopathy can return the body to wellness.

If you or your child is suffering from chronic infections, you can reach out to a certified classical homeopath for constitutional care. Many times under the care of a homeopath, you can see positive results within a few weeks. Homeopathic care can stop the cycle of recurring infections, bringing the individual back to health and avoiding invasive surgeries. Book an appointment.
