Lingering Colds and Flu? Symptoms Be Gone!

This week, due to family commitments, I’m going to make this post short, but fear not!

I am also including three informative tips I hope will help you and yours during the often brutal cold and flu season. 

In particular, colds and influenza that linger. In cases like this, it's important to be familiar with these three remedies:

  1. Sulphur 30, twice daily between 1-3 days, will often put a halt to the last of the illness. Just remember, we live in a world where we expect symptoms to go away immediately. Therefore, we often tend to be a bit impatient when it comes to our expectations of how quickly a recovery will commence. It’s important it remains clear the typical cold lasts for about 1- 2 weeks, influenza and its after-effects can last for several weeks, and coughs can take months to completely resolve.

*Keep these facts in mind as I offer you this lovely Homeopathy tip on how to truly kick a lingering cold; it would be wholly inappropriate to use if the condition is not really a lasting one, or is used as a just-in-case method.

Use this remedy only when the cold/flu has persisted for 10 days or more.

  1. Umcka is a combination remedy that can be used in a pinch for a lingering cough, cold and in some cases, influenza. It can be found on Amazon or at your local health food store.
  2. A dose of Aurum metallicum 200, taken every other day, until very much better, is my go-to remedy for the oft inevitable depression that accompanies the flu. Did you know that influenza can actually cause depression? It’s not uncommon for those who suffer from the flu to also experience accompanying symptoms of depression. These physiological effects can often last much longer than the initial illness, making it important to address this frequently unaddressed aspect of the flu.

By doing so, you can rest easy knowing you've done everything you can to ensure an effective and graceful healing period.

There you have it.

I guarantee you'll be happy you did.



I am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Joette is not a physician and the relationship between Joette and her clients is not of prescriber and patient, but as educator and client. It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. Joette believes that the advice and diagnosis of a physician is often in order.
