Homeopathy provides a safe and natural way to treat the symptoms of colds, coughs and flu in addition to building up your body’s own natural defenses during the autumn and winter months.
Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine that uses remedies from the plant animal and mineral kingdom to stimulate the body’s natural ability to overcome illness. Not only can homeopathy help treat colds, coughs and flu when they are in full stream, but it can also be used as a preventative to help boost your immune system and improve your general health so that you become less susceptible to picking up “all that is going around”.
Homeopathy takes an individualist approach to each person’s experience of the symptoms of colds, coughs and flus and a remedy is prescribed specific to each person’s needs. When your body produces these symptoms it is trying its best to restore itself back to health. So rather than try to suppress things further, we prescribe a remedy that matches your symptoms which in turn stimulates your body’s own natural healing ability to help move and clear the symptoms out of your system.
Here are some remedies that help explain further.
Bryonia: is useful when a cold goes to the chest, the cough is very dry and painful, any movement makes the symptoms worse and the person will hold the chest or sides to keep the body still. They feel really irritable and wish to be left alone – they are like a bear with a sore head.
Pulsatilla: is useful when the cough is dry in the evening and loose in the morning and all the symptoms feel worse in a warm stuffy room and feel better for fresh air. Thick yellow mucus is coughed up and there is a feeling of pressure and soreness in the chest. When ill the person may be weepy, want comfort and company.
Other supports that can be used to boost your immune response during the winter months include a healthy diet, Vitamin C daily to help your body build while blood cells which help fight against invading germs and fresh air – step out of the heated offices, homes and cars and get some fresh air into your lungs.
