Cure the flu with homeopathy

The flu is at the origin of the seasonal epidemic which rages every winter, between the months of November and April in the northern hemisphere. It usually starts at the end of December, and lasts an average of ten weeks. Fortunately there are homeopathic treatments for prevention and attack to cure the flu virus .

Symptoms of the influenza virus

The flu is an infectious disease caused by the Influenza virus. It is generally not serious in healthy people. The flu (seasonal) is an acute respiratory infection, different from a common cold. The flu condition is usually the cause of a high fever and can cause fatigue and a cough lasting for several weeks.
  • In healthy people , recovery from influenza is spontaneous after one to two weeks.
  • In elderly or vulnerable people, the flu can unbalance the health status with a risk of worsening of existing diseases (chronic diseases such as heart or respiratory failure, chronic bronchitis, asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis…).

The symptoms of influenza can occur typically for 3 to 7 days. Most often, the temperature decreases in 2 to 4 days. Fatigue and coughing can last for up to 2 weeks, and sometimes longer.

  • Onset of chills, malaise, muscle pain, headache
  • High fever, which can reach 40 °
  • Increased heart rate (tachycardia)
  • Chills, fatigue, depression which may lead to drowsiness, lack of appetite (anorexia)
  • Runny nose (rhinorrhea), sore throat, difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)
  • Veiled voice, difficulty speaking, burning in the chest, dry cough
  • Severe headaches in the forehead, eyes, difficulty in bearing light (photophobia).

Recovery is complete in most people within one to two weeks.

The symptoms of the flu virus can also be mistaken for the Covid-19 . Anosmia (loss of smell) and ageusia (loss of taste) are not characteristic of Covid-19 infection, they can also occur with the flu. This is why, on suspicion of influenza , it is important to also carry out the diagnosis of Covid, confirmed by a virological test by RT-PCR .

Advice from your naturopath



  • For people over 65, it is recommended to use the flu vaccine over homeopathic treatment. The influenza vaccine protects against four strains of the virus . It is strongly recommended for people over 65, those suffering from chronic diseases, pregnant women as well as obese people (whose BMI is greater than or equal to 40 ). Getting vaccinated at the start of winter is also a way to prevent the epidemic from spreading. The vaccine has been available since October and the vaccination campaign will run until January 31.
