Reliable and Safe Homeopathic Flu Remedies

Homeopathic philosophy emphasizes adjusting medications and dosages in precise ways according to how each individual happens to feel -- as opposed to mainstream medicine, which tends toward broad and sweeping approaches.

In homeopathy there is no single best remedy for any given ailment or even individual.  Remedies are selected based on your specific flu symptoms or clusters of them. Here is a list matching some homeopathic remedies with flu symptoms, so you can see which will relieve the particular aches and pains that are plaguing you.

  • When you first begin to notice you aren’t feeling well in a "flu-ish" way, take Anas Barbaria (also known as Oscillococcinum), which studies show may shorten flu duration
  • Coldlike symptoms, such as exhaustion, anxiety, chills, diarrhea and vomiting, and thirst for warm water. Remedy: Arsenicum album.
  • Severely aching joints, discomfort when moving, hard, dry cough, and intense thirst for cold drinks. Remedy: Bryonia alba.
  • Sensitivity to both hot and cold temperatures, thick coating on the tongue, bad breath, raw and sore throat, excessive saliva production, and possibly profuse sweating. Remedies: Mercurius solubilis or Mercurius vivus.
  • Digestive distress, stomach cramps, nausea, chills, and irritability. Remedy: Nux vomica.
  • Stiff muscles and joints that can be soothed by heat, restlessness, and discomfort in any position. Remedy: Rhus toxicodendron.
