    Homeopathy to the Rescue

    Homeopathic remedies for swine flu, flu, influenza

    Aconitum Napellus. [aconite, acon.]
    Aconite may be successful as prophylaxis (preventing flu) in the very early stage, where first mild / undifferentiated symptoms occur.
    If the patient has sudden onset of mild flu like symptoms (runny nose and watery eyes etc) but no other peculiar symptom but is anxious if it might be swine flu - think about Aconite.
    1. Fear will die because of the disease
    2. Red Throat
    3. Onset of the symptoms after exposure to cold
    4. Harsh beginning
    5. The symptoms appeared suddenly
    6. Red Congested face
    7. Muscle aches and pains

    Gelsemium. [Gels] 
    This remedy corresponds to the commencement of the trouble, when the patient is weak, tired and aches throughout the body. It removes speedily the intense aching and muscular soreness. There is constant chilliness and the patient hugs the fire; the fever is less acute than that of Aconite, and the cough is hard and painful. There are paroxysms of sneezing with excoriating discharge, and great torpor and apathy. An extensive experience with this remedy in the great Epidemic of 1918 proved its usefulness. Simple cases were speedily cured. Those that were complicated with initial treatments by Aspirin were only those which had dangerous complications. Aconite will sometimes prove the better remedy for children,but the drug will never be a prominent one in influenza. Still it may be prescribed when indicated; it will, perhaps, soothe and moderate the subsequent attack, but its action is not quick here as in simple fevers, as we have to do with a blood affection. Baptisia. The gastro-intestinal form of grippe may need this remedy, especially when there are present putrid diarrhoea stools. Clarke considers this remedy the nearest specific for the disease; he prefers the 30th potency. Hughes also praises it, but uses it in the 1x and 2x dilutions, which seem to have more extensive testimony as to their efficacy.
    1. Has a fever chill
    2. Hand trembles
    3. Abundant perspiration
    4. Downcast
    5. Intense muscle aches, with leg pain
    6. Remains immobile in bed
    7. Face congestion
    8. Injected Eyes, sore throat
    9. Dry cough, rapid pulse
    10. Despite the fever, has no thirst
    11. Depression and pain

    Eupatorium perfoliatum [Eup.perf.] 
    This remedy has much soreness and aching of the entire body; hoarseness and cough, with great soreness of the larynx and upper respiratory tract. Coryza with thirst and drinking causes vomiting. The cough is a very shattering one, hurts the head and chest, and as in Drosera, the patient holds the chest with the hands. The breakbone pains are characteristic of the remedy. Add to these symptoms acute bilious derangements, and it is all the more indicated. Many physicians rely on this remedy in la grippe almost exclusively in the early stages.
    1. Fever that starts with chills, shivering and shaking
    2. Back pain
    3. Continued fever, with intense and insatiable thirst
    4. Bone pain, as if they had been beaten
    5. Back pain, as if it were broken
    6. Snoring
    7. Painful cough, aggravates the chest when coughing
    8. Great pain of muscles and bones
    9. Feels as if the back were dislocated
    10. Congested face during fever
    11. The sweating improves all the symptoms, except the headache
    Eup.Perf. bears a strong resemblance to Bryonia in its symptomatology . The main differential is that the Eup. Perf patient is restless and tossing and turning – the Bryonia patient will remain as still as possible and even turn their face to the wall to have zero stimulus. In both remedies there is thirst for cold water but in Bryonia the patient will drink large quantities with no ill effects - the Eup.Perf. patient will have shuddering and vomiting of bile.

    Sabadilla. [Sabad] 
    Sneezing is the great keynote of this remedy. Sneezing and lachrymation on going into the open air. The throat is swollen and the pain is worse on empty swallowing; the sneezing is excessive, shaking the whole body. Shudderings , with gooseflesh chills creeping upwards, are also prominent symptoms. Frontal headache, dryness of mouth, without thirst and cough, worse on lying down, are additional symptoms. It suits well many cases of the catarrhal form of grippe; other remedies having sneezing are Cyclamen and Euphorbia.

    Arsenicum. [Ars] 
    This remedy corresponds to the trial form of influenza. It covers more phases of grippe than perhaps any other remedy. Hughes believes that it will cut short an attack, especially when there is a copious flow, prostration and paroxysmal coryza. Its periodicity makes it suitable to epidemics, and it suits the early symptoms when the affection is in the upper portion of the respiratory tract. The burning dryness and copious watery excoriating secretion and the involvement of the conjunctiva are unmistakable indications. Langour and prostration are prominent symptoms. Arsenicum iodide. Chills, flushes of heat and severe fluent coryza, discharge irritating and corrosive, sneezing and prostration. It corresponds to true influenza and is highly recommended by Hale. Sanguinaria nitrate is especially valuable when the trachea and larynx are affected. Phytolacca. Specific when the throat is inflamed and spotty, with great hardness and tenderness of the glands.
    1. Begins with arduous throat pain
    2. Improvement by consuming hot drinks
    3. Widespread cold, feels cold
    4. He covers himself too much
    5. Feels prostrated, tired, exhausted
    6. Violent vomiting, and has frequent, but scanty diarrhea
    7. Thinks will die
    8. Burning evacuation
    9. Cough after drinking
    10. Agitated and anxious
    11. Does not want to be alone
    12. Shortness of breath, must sit up to cough.

    Arsenicum iodide. [ars.iod]
    Chills, flushes of heat and severe fluent coryza, discharge irritating and corrosive, sneezing and prostration. It corresponds to true influenza and is highly recommended by Hale. Sanguinaria nitrate is especially valuable when the trachea and larynx are affected. Phytolacca is specific when the throat is inflamed and spotty, with great hardness and tenderness of the glands
    the patient is short of breath – air hunger. Hacking cough. Expectoration yellow green /foul. Pneumonia that fails to clear up. Hoarseness. Burning heat in chest. Loss of voice.

    Dulcamara. [Dulc] 
    This is one of our best remedies in the acute form; the eyes are suffused, the throat is sore and the cough hurts because of the muscular soreness. If brought on by damp, cold changes in the weather, so much the surer is Dulcamara indicated. Bryonia. The trouble here is largely bronchial and going down. Phosphorus may be indicated, especially when the trouble moves towards the chest. It is a very useful remedy for the debility following la grippe, as it is usually of the pure nervous type. It is the great post-influenza "tonic."

    Rhus toxicodendron. [Rhus-t] 
    Influenza, with severe aching in all the bones, sneezing and coughing. The cough is worse evenings and is caused by a tickling behind the upper part of the sternum. Especially is it useful in cases brought on by exposure to dampness. There is much prostration and depression, and the patient may have some symptoms which are suspicious as pointing towards typhoid fever, such as burning tongue, stupor and delirium. Aching pains, nightly restlessness are keynotes symptoms. Causticum, like both Rhus and Eupatorium,has a tired, sore, bruised sensation all over the body and soreness in the chest when coughing, but it has in addition involuntary urination when coughing.

    Ipecacuanha [Ipecac , Ip]
    Adapted to cases where the gastric symptoms predominate; tongue clean or slightly coated. Nausea: with profuse saliva; vomiting of white, glairy mucus in large quantities, without relief; sleepy afterwards; worse from stooping. Low thirst. Cough: dry spasmodic, constricted, asthmatic. Difficult breathing from least exercise; violent dyspnoea, with wheezing and anxiety about the stomach. Cough, with rattling of mucus in bronchi when inspiring; threatened suffocation from mucus. Pains as if bones were all torn to pieces.
    Ipecac in swine flu case, from my blog

    Allium cepa. [All-c]
    Profuse catarrhal coryza; the nose runs freely, there is sneezing, irritability cough, the face is swollen and looks inflamed. Camphora. This remedy is often sufficient at the outset to cut short an attack, or at least modify the severity.

    Sticta. [Stict] 
    Nasal catarrh; headache, thirst, nightly expectoration, great watering of eyes,running at nose, hoarseness of voice, frontal headache and depression of whole system. Tuberculous subjects attacked by grippe. "There is no better remedy," says Dr. Fornias,"for the incessant wearing, racking cough of this class of patients." Tuberculinum is an excellent prevention of recurring attacks of la grippe in those who have annual attacks. NOTE: Those who were guided during the great Epidemic by the indications given in the previous edition of this work have amply verified all of them, so little change appears.

    Veratrum album [Verat. alb.]
    Adapted to diseases with rapid sinking of the vital forces; complete prostration; collapse. Cold perspiration on the forehead (over entire body, Tab. ) with nearly all complaints. Thirst: intense, unquenchable, for large quantities of very cold water and acid drinks; wants everything cold. Diarrhoea: frequent, greenish, watery, gushing: mixed with flakes: cutting colic, with cramps commencing in hands and feet and spreading all over; prostrating, after fright; < least movement; with vomiting, cold sweat on forehead during and prostration after. Vomiting: excessive with nausea and great prostration: < by drinking ( Ars. ); by least motion ( Tab. ); great weakness after.

    Phosphorus [phos.]
    may be indicated, especially when the trouble moves towards the chest. It is a very useful remedy for the debility following la grippe, as it is usually of the pure nervous type. It is the great post-influenza "tonic."
    Patient is thirsty for cold water which he may vomit easily once the water is warm in the stomach is a keynote of this remedy. Cough hard wheezing dry painful violent tickling hacking exhausting with retching. There may be pain in the abdomen. Burning in the air passages and trembling. “As if skin in the larynx” is a very helpful symptom. In a Phosphorous case there is usually blood present in any discharges, and blood may be observed in the sputum brought up.

    Bryonia. [bry.]
    The trouble here is largely bronchial and going downward. When a person is very grumpy and feels miserable with the flu, wanting only to lie still and be left alone, this remedy is likely to be useful. Headache, muscle aches, and cough or stomach pain may be the major symptoms. Everything feels worse from even the slightest motion. The person’s mouth usually is dry, with a thirst for large cold drinks.
    Eup.Perf. bears a strong resemblance to Bryonia in its symptomatology . The main differential is that the Eup. Perf patient is restless and tossing and turning – the Bryonia patient will remain as still as possible and even turn their face to the wall to have zero stimulus. In both remedies there is thirst for cold water but in Bryonia the patient will drink large quantities with no ill effects - the Eup.Perf. patient will have shuddering and vomiting of bile.
    1. Begins with sudden head pains
    2. Worsened by body movement
    3. Painful cough
    4. Fever with chills.
    5. Intense back and leg pain
    6. Aggravated by the least movement, improved by rest
    7. Extreme thirst for large amounts of liquid
    8. Cold, red throat
    9. Limb pain while walking.
    10. Dryness of mucous

    Baptisia. [bapt.]
    Influenza with marked gastro-intestinal symptoms may need this remedy, especially when there are putrid diarrhoea stools. Clarke considers this remedy the nearest specific for the disease; he prefers the 30th potency. Hughes also praises it, but uses it in the 1x and 2x dilutions, which seem to have more extensive testimony as to their efficacy.

    Arnica Montana [arnica, arn.] 

    Flu with a feeling of soreness, as if bruised internally and externally.

    Belladona [bell.]

    Flu with a high fever, red face and dilated pupils. Dryness and burning heat. Everything is intense and concentrated in the head. High fever that comes on suddenly, often as a result of a change in temperature (e.g. becoming chilled or overheated, washing the hair). Glistening eyes with dilated pupils that are sensitive to light. Rapidity of onset is a key feature of Belladonna type flu symptoms. Unlike some other flu’s, rapidity of improvement is also notable when the correct prescription of Belladonna is made. Head pain worse for lying flat or jarring; better for sitting upright.
