Homeopathy is a powerful and modern weapon
So, we offer homeopathy as a weapon against colds and flu. For two reasons.
The first reason is security. Whatever you say, but we all know that it is extremely undesirable to use “chemical” pills and drops during pregnancy. Therefore, any reliable method of treatment, which allows you to do without them, should be welcomed. Homeopathic medicines are harmless. In the worst case – they will not help, that is, nothing will happen.
The second reason is that these medicines can be easily learned to use at home, long before the visit to the doctor. Then, if you use the medicine correctly, the very need for such a visit may disappear. But it will not fall away – and in this case you cannot harm. After all, rare lucky ones can see a doctor in the very first hours of illness (for example, children and the husband / wife of a homeopath).
How is homeopathy prescribed?
It is easy to prescribe a homeopathic medicine – because the prescription is very logical.
For example, it is very difficult to prescribe rinsing with chamomile or mustard infusion so as to know for sure that they will help you. How do you predict which tool? After all, all people are different …
In homeopathy there is such an exact instrument, it is similarity law (the only law in such inaccurate science as medicine). The essence of this law is that if the picture of your disease is very similar to the picture corresponding to the medicine, then it will cure you. These pictures are obtained from life, rechecked thousands of times. Below they are given briefly, so that you can use at home.
For example, if you have a cold feeling that you have inhaled the “fumes” of chopped onions, then the Allium flail, which is being prepared from this very onion, will help you.
It is not necessary to have a special observation to notice that all people suffer differently. Even if the disease is caused by the same virus. Symptoms of the disease directly indicate: the patient – what he should do, and the doctor – what medicine to prescribe.
“Cold portraits” is a description of the picture of the disease corresponding to each of the drugs. Peer at them like a mirror and determine which of the portraits is most similar to yours. This will be the application of the law of similarity on which homeopathy stands. Of course, for a successful prescription of a drug, one must first of all understand their symptoms. Analyze: what makes you sick, when and what makes you feel worse and better, if you want to move, what are the features of a runny nose and cough, what unexpected strange thoughts come to your mind.
- First of all, pay attention to the strange and paradoxical symptoms – they often point to the right medicine.
- The whole picture described here is rarely observed: it suffices if three or four key symptoms coincide.
- The diagnosis of the disease (ARVI, flu, chickenpox, rotavirus infection and

These are not all the medicines that can be used for ARVI. If you do not find your picture here – consult with a homeopath (now you can do it quickly via the Internet) or look at homeopathic literature.
Most often, you will feel the right medicine right away. Then be sure to remember or write down for the future – what kind of medicine and in what situation it helped you.
Where to take drugs and how to take them
Homeopathic medicines are sold over the counter in regular and special (homeopathic) pharmacies.
Get all the drugs: first, you don’t have to suddenly get sick, think in the night – where to get the medicine, and in the morning send someone for it; secondly, homeopathic medicines do not deteriorate (there is nothing to spoil there), if properly stored, they have been used for decades. (The pharmacy indicates the shelf life is 2 years, however, this is because it is so supposed.) Improper storage is, say, with perfumes and aroma oils, odorous medicines, or if you have filled them with something.
You can take them one grain at a time. Some doctors prescribe three, five, seven or eight. The quantity is of secondary importance. The main thing is to choose the right drug.
The medication is taken 15-30 minutes before a meal, resolved in the mouth, do not drink. The frequency of admission is determined by the patient’s condition: while there is improvement, the admission is not repeated, if the improvement “stopped” – they give it again, if it was better and it became worse again – they give it again (repeat as many times as the deterioration returns). When symptoms change, another medicine is selected. If the improvement holds steadfast – do not give any medication. These are general principles, but if you give the medicine once again, nothing dangerous will happen.
If you could not find a homeopathic remedy for yourself or your loved ones – do not make far-reaching conclusions about the value of homeopathy in medicine in general and about yourself in particular. Homeopathy has nothing to do with it. Simply, we and our knowledge are imperfect …
If you have tried many ways, and the disease does not go away, or a complication has arisen, it makes sense to consult a doctor who has spent many years of her life studying this remarkable science. He knows at least fifteen times more drugs than you, and he may be able to pick up the key for you.
It may very well be that once having felt the power of the “right” homeopathic medicine, you will go to special courses where you will study the “homemade” homeopathy, get a clinic and a first-aid kit. Then, feeling fully armed, you will be more courageous to look at the problem of ARVI. And this will be another reason to rejoice!
