Explore homeopathy to strengthen yourself
Homeopathy has empiricaly shown good results in epidemics.
Research has shown its possibilities in upper respiratory track infections*.
Remember; homeopathy do not have spesific remedies for spesific conditions. It will only work when the symptoms of the immun-system matches the symptoms of the remedy. This is regardless of the causing agent being a virus or bacteria.
Homeopaths all around the world are working to find the best possible remedies to help our immunsystem fight different epidemics. Particularly this year with so much fear of contamination as well as serious outcomes and strong international regulations.
From a holistic as well as spiritual perspective epidemics are collective diseases and every epidemic unique. Also the agent is not as important as the symptompicture.
Here we will collect and make available the most used remedies covering the symptom picture of the annual epidemic.
This is work in progress and the main indications of the collected remedies will be added.
Based on experiences with earlier epidemics and the lack of other possible interventions homeopathy could be one of the best possibilities also for this years flu-like cases.
In any uncertainty or doubt contact your professional health workers.
