Homeopaths Get the Flu Too, Ya Know — Part Two

Road to Recovery through Homeopathy


As I promised you I would last week, I'm here to tell you about my road to recovery after succumbing to the flu. (more…)

Homeopaths Get the Flu Too, Ya Know



I’m sick.

Lest you think homeopaths don’t get ill … here’s proof that we do. I’m writing this on my laptop from bed, with a cup of bone stock on my bedside table.

You read that right  — I. Am. Sick. (more…)

Homeopathic Remedies for Enterovirus 68

Enterovirus 68

In case you haven’t heard, the new media medical scare for children this season is Enterovirus 68. Yikes! The added number makes it sound so official and daunting.

But remember, folks, you have homeopathy in your court and a kit in your medicine cabinet.

This doesn’t mean you’d never take a child to a hospital if the illness is serious enough, but let’s see if we can avoid such an excursion.

Here are my thoughts on how I’d treat this illness if it came to my family. (more…)

Is the Flu Bugging You?


Sunday worship in Kolkata. This is a temple on the Hooghly River in Kolkata, India. I am here studying with the Drs. Prasanta and Pratip Banerji

Aside from the many wonderful things I’m learning here at the homeopathy clinic, you might think the recent flu outbreak would make me glad to be in India! Actually, I don’t worry about the flu because I know homeopathy’s track record in treating it.

Even during the deadly Spanish flu epidemic of 1918, homeopathy came through with flying colors.  During a time when about half of the patients treated conventionally died from this infection, homeopaths reported a death rate as low as 2%

With such an impressive history, I know where to turn if I do succumb to the flu. (more…)

Kiss, Kiss


If you've read my blog posts in the past, you’ll remember that I’m no lover of flu shots. Indeed, I've seen the damage they can do, but Rite Aid’s slogan promoting flu shots did resonate with me: “Don’t hide from the flu.”

The good news is that you don’t have to hide from the flu, and the process doesn't involve injecting yourself with questionable viral concoctions. Have no fear of getting close enough to hug and kiss your loved ones, even greeting friends, regardless of the germs, with my easy-to-use remedy flowchart.

I’m all about making this as easy as possible to use at home.

The only problem is that you need to move quickly in order to take advantage of this flu protocol. If you note that your child appears to have contracted the flu, and you act on it within the first 12 -24 hours, you may be able to abort it or at least lessen it to a great degree without going to the next step.

Below are the remedies to have on hand.  Use either c or x potency.

1) Ammonium carbonicum 30

2) Aconitum 6

3) Nux vomica 6

4) Mercurius sol 6

5) Arsenicum album 6

*Stop administering at any juncture when there is measurable improvement, and resume where you left off if the symptoms recur a few days later.


What happens if you didn't get to the remedies in time or you chose incorrectly and the cold lingers and lingers?

One of the best little tricks I know is to use Sulphur 30 every 3-4 hours for 1-2 days. If at any time the cold seems to be much improved, then stop the remedy. If it returns a few days later, then resume using the remedy. However, don’t continue with the treatment for more than 5 days. It’s important to mention here that a lingering cold or flu is one that lasts more than 2 weeks or so.

Another beneficial tidbit to remember is that if the flu is rampant in your school or neighborhood, and your children are particularly susceptible to it, consider using a prophylactic against it. One of the best is Influenzinum 30, four times in one day, every week for one month, then every month until the end of flu season. Be sure to stop when the threat is over.

With this chart, your remedy kit (call or email us and we’ll send you one) and a few additional remedies, have no fear of getting close to others even during cold and flu season.  Then, kiss to your heart’s content!

Do As You’re Told! The Flu, Flu Shots, and Homeopathy

flu shot1


There was a time when we did as we were told.  We listened to our parents, teachers, and authority in all its faces and adhered to the rules of the day.  As youngsters it was an appropriate and accepted way of conduct.

Today, much of what we were taught has been turned upside down.  The voice of today’s society rings of topsy-turvy counsel.  Instead of work first and play later, our world entreats us to play first.

Instead of buying a home that we can afford, we’re encouraged to borrow beyond our means.  Instead of firm discipline in the home, we’re directed by faddish psycho-babble to give our kids “space” and privacy.

I say it’s time to turn back the clock…or perhaps swing it forward.  Whatever the direction, it’s time we take back control of our lives and use common horse sense.

For example, does it make sense to get a flu shot that may be made from the wrong strain?

This is a frequent occurrence. Since the epidemiologists do not know which strain is forthcoming each flu season, they make a soup of the latest microorganisms.  Then it’s injected directly into the bloodstream.

Interestingly, many who are vaccinated get the flu anyway—either in spite of or perhaps because of the vaccine itself.

And, what about the connection between the flu shot and muscle pain?  It has been clinically noted that when healthy patients yield to flu shots in autumn, they succumb to fibromyalgia by winter or spring.

Fibromyalgia is one of the symptoms of the flu!

Remember the achy joints and bones that come with the flu?  That’s fibromyalgia. The short-lived achiness that accompanies the flu becomes a full-fledged chronic condition when the immune system is tampered with as it is with a vaccine.

Indeed, I think we’ve lost perspective.

Why not simply take a gentle homeopathic remedy that works better and more delicately and politely on the system?

Consider Oscillococcinum (pronounced: oh-sill-oh-cock-sign-um).  It happens to be the #1 over-the-counter and prescription medication in France—a place where homeopathy is highly regarded by the medical profession as well as by lay people.

But the reason for its popularity is simple–it works.

Oscillococcinum is made from the heart and liver of a waterfowl, and is particularly useful for the onset of colds and flu that come on in the wet season, such as in fall or spring.

If taken at the onset of a cold, it will usually stop it dead in its tracks.

But here is the best part: if taken as a prophylactic, say, once per week for four weeks and then once each month until the flu season is over, it will usually  protect you and your family from the flu.

If indeed the person still gets a cold or flu after taking this remedy, it will often ensure a much milder episode.

This is rational medicine.

No drugs.

No side effects.

No questionable ingredients.

Do you need another reason to take this remedy?

How about a cost of less than $19?

I certainly wouldn’t want to dictate what you ought to do for the upcoming season.

That would put me in the same category as proselytizing drug manufacturers. However, this little lesson may just convince the staunchest advocates of modern medicine of the power of homeopathy.

Consider each and decide for yourself.

Drugs or homeopathy?

For my clients, family and me, the decision is straightforward– homeopathy for gentler, more capable results.

Convalescence with Cell Salts

If you’re just starting out with homeopathy, you’ve probably discovered just how well it brings swift relief to injuries and illnesses. But don’t stop there!


Did you know about two easy cell salts, which when combined, help the weakened body during convalescence?

Calc phos 6x and Ferr phos 6x  are two remedies, which do amazing work after an illness has taken its toll. They rebuild, replenish and rejuvenate!

I like to recommend taking them together in water. Drop 4 pellets of each, together in 4 ounces of water. Take a sip (approx. 1 tsp), every 3-4 hours, for several days after an illness. Keep this aqueous solution nearby in a glass bottle or mug but they may also be taken by simply tossing 3-4 pills in the mouth until they dissolve.

Either way, it works in the same fashion…..by restoring wellness to its full capacity.
