Homeopathic Flu Remedies

A cold will last typically up to a week. The flu can last longer. The after effects of having the flu, longer still. Flu symptoms include, but are not limited to, body ache, cough, hot and cold sweat, fatigue, headache, fevers, nausea, vomiting, sore throat, and losing their appetite. A persistent cough might develop as part of or after having the flu. It’s best to try homeopathic remedies before the flu becomes full blown and all these symptoms manifest.

The influenza virus is an infectious disease that afflicts mammals and birds. It is highly contagious and usually airborne. People who have the flu are often strongly advised to stay home, especially with so many variations of the flu. If people must go in public while having the flu, they should cover their coughs and sneezes with their elbow, not their hand, to prevent the spread of germs. People should also wash their hands regularly. With today’s modern flu health scare, there are often hand sanitizer dispensers in public places for everyone to use as they pass.

There are different homeopathic flu remedies for people suffering different symptoms. How people experience flu is often different per person. If someone is having cough, throat and chest pain, a dry mouth and lips, and are very thirsty, they might want to take a homeopathic remedy including bryonia. If someone is experiencing chills, aches, fevers, and they are not thirsty, they might consider gelsemium. Never try a homeopathic remedy for flu without first researching the ingredients for side effects and reactions, and talking to a homeopathic specialist. One such specialist even created a homeopathic flu remedy when taken daily during flu season will help protect you from contracting the flu as well as help sooth and heal you if you get the flu. This appears to be the only product that can possibly help with most flu symptoms on its own.

The flu virus can affect different parts of the body. That is a big reason why there are so many different remedies. The virus can get into the throat, the bronchial tubes in the lungs and chest, infect the nose and sinus cavities, and even get into the middle ear. Homeopathic flu remedies will take into consideration every symptom a patient has, even ones that don’t seem to be flu related.

Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine. While its truth that there is a vaccine for the flu virus, the virus itself is constantly mutating and changing. The vaccine can only account for so many variations. That’s why it might be necessary to look elsewhere for flu remedies. When the flu hits, it can be debilitating and in some cases fatal. It’s better to have a good idea of what options there are when looking for flu solutions.

Overcome a Stiff Neck

One may choose to go for Home traction devices for a stiff neck, because this brings more stability to the neck. So one can work more easily, be more comfortable and even heal conditions related to a sore neck, like headaches or dizziness.

Home traction devices operate by providing traction to a particular part of the body, which is very similar to getting a massage from a professional chiropractor. As the neck is tractioned, it creates more space between the vertebrae, so any underlying conditions, like a pinched nerve in the neck is healed. The nerves get more room to breathe, the neck heals. Correspondingly, it also heals ailing arms, hands or headaches, because nerves move from the neck to the arms, and hands. So as the nerve endings at the spine get more room to breathe, the related conditions are healed.

Another way of seeing this is that as we provide decompression to a sore neck, the circulation improves. So the entire body feels better. The quality of sleep improves and the feeling of nausea and dizziness disappears.

Have you been bothered by a stiff neck, recurring headaches, general weakness or a pain that shoots down to the arms. The neck comforter is a fine neck traction collar that can take away your discomfort in no time.

The neck comforter operates by using traction therapy, and comes with a hand operated air pump. This massages the neck, and takes the weight of the head off the neck. It simply allows the neck to relax.

Operation of the neck comforter is simple. Just put on the neck comforter, and inflate it with the air pump that comes as a part of the kit. As you go on inflating the neck comforter, it rises vertically in height.

– This brings the weight of the head on the shoulders, such that the neck can relax.

– This also massages the neck, and correspondingly soothes the ailing muscles.

– As the neck stretches, it comes closer to healing itself. This relieves any underlying condition that may be causing a neck pain, like a pinched nerve in the neck.

– By using the neck comforter, your posture improves by itself, you no longer feel headaches, dizziness or a pain in the arms, and you can work with ease.

– This feels just like getting a massage from a professional chiropractor, but the difference is that this is an easy to use home traction unit. You could use it as many times a day as you feel like, and for as long as you like.

Eat To Beat Common Cold

1. Garlic. While not classed as food, if you add garlic to as many dishes as you do eat, you will be much better off. Garlic is a potent immune booster and can also help kill unwanted infections in your body as well. Garlic kills unwanted viruses and bacteria thanks to the level of allicin it contains: allicin is an active component that offers antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.

2. Sweet Potatoes. To help give you an energizing boost, sweet potatoes should be your go-to. You do need to eat some carbs while trying to beat a cold even if you aren’t very active right now; it’s these carbs that will give you the energy you need to fight the infection.

Sweet potatoes are great because not only will they help to keep your blood sugar levels stable, but also they’re also a very rich source of vitamin A, which is essential for maintaining your mucosal surfaces. Since these mucosal surfaces are your first defense against infection, they’ll help prevent any further unwanted viruses or bacteria from entering your body.

3. Kale. Preparing yourself a kale salad is another excellent idea when you are down with the common cold. Kale is very rich in vitamin C content, which plays a crucial role in restoring a healthy immune system.

A high intake of vitamin C while you are suffering from a cold can help you lower the overall duration of your cold, helping you get back to feeling better.

4. Chicken Noodle Soup. Finally, the old saying is true: “chicken noodle soup can cure a cold.” The hot liquid will help soothe your sore throat as well as clear up some of the congestion. The recovery is thanks to the fact the hot liquid will raise your internal body temperature which helps loosen mucus secretions in your airways.

About Baby Cold

Since your baby’s immune system is still unseasoned he is extremely vulnerable to the cold pathogens. Sneezing and coughing by infected people leaves germs in the air which can create havoc with the little creature’s immune system, also it can spread via physical contact with the infected person or surfaces.
Symptoms: sneezing, sore throat, runny nose and difficulty is swallowing.

Cough can be a serious or trivial condition depending on the baby’s age. If your tot is less than 4 months old, then it can be something to worry about, specially in winters, as it could be some dangerous viral infection. For baby older than a year cough is less distressing as it can be due to a common cold or at times body’s reflex action to clear the throat and nasal airways.

The flu or the influenza virus is airborne, highly contagious and spreads in much the same way as the common cold. If flu is widespread in your community then you need to watch out for the symptoms more cautiously. More often than not, flu can be easily identified by the doctor,however in some cases tests maybe needed, specially is your baby is prone to other chronic health problems like asthma, heart disease or HIV. Also, for little ones between the ages of 0-5 immunization against influenza is highly recommended.
Symptoms: Fever above 101 degree F, chills, muscle aches, headache, dry cough and runny nose.
