This is the time of year that I usually write a post about the flu. We actually have not heard too much about how this flu season is looking. That doesn’t really matter. There are ways to help care for ourselves and our family as a whole if we do come down with the flu, or experience lingering affects from the flu. Homeopathy can help with all of these.
Previous Posts About The Flu
Here are links to prior posts that I have written about the flu:
- Gives some homeopathic remedies that are helpful if someone comes down with the flu. (Click here)
- Talks about taking care of yourself, and the history of using homeopathy during the flu season, specifically mentioning the 1918-1919 flu epidemic. (Click here)
- Talks about how some people may move through the flu fine, but experience lingering affects afterwards, and how homeopathy is helpful. It is called “never been well since”. (Click here)
- Talks about homeopathic care before, during and after pregnancy. If a pregnant woman comes down with the flu, homeopathy can be very helpful. (Click here) (Unfortunately, it is becoming more common for pregnant women to be given the flu vaccine. The vaccine used to not be given at all at this time, knowing it was dangerous for the mother and the developing fetus.)
Taking Care Of Ourselves
Changes are happening all the time in our lives. We have losses – a loved one dies, a marriage ends, an expectation isn’t met, being fire from a job. We have new beginnings – a new home, a new educational program, a new job. Even the changes of the seasons and the time can affect us. It is okay that we are affected by these changes. It is life happening.
When these these changes happen, how do we respond to them? How do we react? How do we go through these events/changes? How do we listen to ourselves? How do we talk to ourselves? What do we do? What do we not do? Do we ask for help, if needed? How do we take care of ourselves during this time?
If we are not in our best health, we may be more susceptible to coming down with the flu. Taking care of ourselves can involve different kinds of healing modalities, walks, pursing activities we love, eating good food, sleeping well, exercising, laughing, being with people we love, and more. When we take good care of and respect ourselves, we are in a better place to care for our loved ones.
It Is Okay
Know that it is okay to get sick. It is okay to have the flu.
In a way if we do become ill, with the flu, it is often our body saying, “Hey, I am making you rest so you can take of yourself. Slow down.” And the body has a wonderful ability to heal itself, of taking care.
