Flu Season, Again – Taking Care Of Ourselves

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? cup-of-tea-and-honeyHow 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.

The Flu – What To Do? Homeopathy Helps

f letterIt is just about the start of flu season. I think we very often don’t know what to do about the flu. We become scared that we may get sick. And the media often adds to that fear. Some years we hear that the the particular strain of the flu is very virulent, and then it turns out that it was a mild season. We think, I most do anything so I and my family don’t come down with the flu.

What to do?

The first thing is to take good care of yourself and your family. Rest, eat good wholesome fresh food, drink liquids, wash your hands, listen to your body, exercise, go outside and get fresh air, do activities that you enjoy.

If you do become ill, rest and sleep, drink fluids, eat if you want to, don’t eat if you don’t want, listen to what your body letter lneeds. If you do have a fever, a fever is the way your body heals itself. The heat of the body kills off the bacteria and/or virus. A fever is a good thing. Vitamin A, D and C are helpful. Homeopathy is helpful too. I think it is important to know that if someone does become ill with the flu, that there are ways to help with the healing, and not to be scared.

Homeopathy Helps During The Flu 

During the 1918-1919 influenza epidemic in the USA, homeopathic physicians recorded that those patients treated with homeopathy had a much lower mortality rate than those treated with conventional medicine.

There are homeopathic remedies that are helpful for when one feels ill from the flu. Often in a flu season, there are 2 – 3 specific homeopathic remedies that are good for that particular strain of flu. If you are not moving through the flu in a letter ureasonable amount of time, then homeopathy could be very helpful. Observe how you are feeling, and select a homeopathic remedy that is similar to how your are feeling.

Homeopathy Helps After The Flu

Sometimes, someone goes through the flu fine, but then there are some lingering affects. The person may tire easily. There may be a persistent cough. Their appetite may not have returned to what it was before they had become ill. Someone may feel light headed; experience aches and pains; have an off and on low grade fever; or just not feel well. This lingering experience may be longer than a few months. For example, someone may have a health condition for several years, and when asked what was going on when this condition started, the person may say I had the flu, and it was back in 2012, three years ago. Homeopathy is helpful in these kinds of situations – not well since having the flu. Click here to read more about never been well since the flu.

Homeopathy Heals

The homeopath listens to how each person experiences what bothers them. With the flu, the homeopath is hearing how the person is experiencing the flu – what their symptoms are like; their emotional state; wanting to be alone or wanting to be with company; their thirst; aches and pains; fevers and more. A homeopathic remedy is then selected that is similar to this. This similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s innate healing abilities, and the person starts to feel better. Homeopathy is safe, gentle, and non toxic. And to know too that it is safe for pregnant women and nursing mothers to use.
