SWINE FLU (H1N1 FLU) AND HOMEOPATHY
Lately my office has been receiving many panicking phone calls about the H1N1 or Swine Flu epidemic. This
current Flu outbreak in humans known as “Swine Flu” is due to a strain of Influenza A virus subtype H1N1, which is
analogous to the Flu Pandemic that had occurred in 1918. Swine Flu is a respiratory illness of pigs activated by
contamination with the virus that can seldom encroach on humans. Homeopathy was successful in treating the
Swine flu contagion of 1918 and can provide an outcome to questions about the 2009 Swine Flu.

Causes of H1N1 Flu:

Homeopathic approach to H1N1 Flu:
Conventional medicine has no specific treatment for Swine flu. Conventional drugs can help sheathe the symptoms
for a few hours and wait for the virus to run its course. Whereas, Homeopathic medicines can in fact fight the virus.
There are several Homeopathic remedies that can swiftly improve the symptoms and restore a state of health. A
Homeopathic remedy will stimulate the immune system by enhancing one’s ability to fight an infection, thus making
an individual more capable to effectively overcome a virus so that the illness can be resolved as rapidly and with as
little discomfort as possible. In addition, Homeopathy can prevent a Swine flu patient from developing post-viral
complications. The Homeopathic remedies are prepared from natural substances, which have been diluted and
potentized many times, so that when they are used according to the Homeopathic principles, they stimulate the
body's own defense system to move towards a healthier state without causing any side effects. Homeopathic
treatment enhances resistance to infection and is safe, natural and effective for both children and adults.
Self – care measures to prevent H1N1 Flu and during the Flu:
   Do not panic.
   Wash hands frequently with soap and water.
   Cough and sneeze into a tissue.
   Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
   Stay away from people who are sick and from crowded places.
   Do not go to school or work if you feel sick.
   Stay well hydrated.
   Take enough rest.
   Eat a healthy and nutritious diet.
   Fresh Citrus juices give you the antioxidants and Vitamin C to boost your immune system.

Hence, Homeopathy will assist in shortening each phase of the H1N1 Flu and if taken constitutionally, can prevent
the ailment altogether. Hence, for a safe, natural, effective answer for H1N1 Flu consider Homeopathy.
