Homeopathic Remedies for Acute Viral Infections
Apply Homeopathic Treatment with Caution
Homeopathy is alternative method for healing the entire person (holistic medicine), proven tobe effective when other alternative methods and conventional medicine don’t work.Homeopathy is a medicine with almost 200 years of experience. It is based upon clear principles and laws of cure. When the accurate remedy is given, the result may exceed one’sexpectation and for that reason homeopathic treatment of acute and chronic diseases is oftencompared with miracle.But beware, homeopathy is not panacea. It has its boundaries. It takes several years for one toqualify into the healing art of classical homeopathy. Into this field learning never stops.Self help with homeopathic remedies is possible when you realize your own limits. It takes timefor you to get used to observe carefully and accurate the presenting symptoms of the acutedisease in yourself or in members of your family. Remember, under this sun there are no twoequally alike individuals. Homeopathic treatment takes into account the entire person. For thatreason one remedy may work for you but to be of little or no help for another, however close toyou he or she may be. When chosen remedy did not work, you should seek advice from aprofessional.However, self help by homeopathic remedies is possible in the very beginning of acute viralinfections.
Always bear in mind, that if the remedy you chose was right for you, the fullrecover will be swift, over day or two.
Better you should feel
no more that 2 or 3 hours after taking the remedy.
If that is not the case, seak help immediately. At References Section bellow you’ll find some book titles that will help you to progress further,if your interest with homeopathy is strong.
Cure for Cold
Viral infections attack you mostly when weather changes, or when weather is too cold and wet.Many times your opportunity to receive qualified help is limited because you are on vacation. Inother cases you need to recover swiftly to go to work or school. You can help yourself byapplying several homeopathic remedies. Bellow I shall give clear indications when certainremedy is applicable. Apply homeopathic cold remedies for self healing only for acuteconditions with marked clear indications for certain remedy.Please read carefully the sectionon the rightand be at your guard.
Acute Respiratory Infections
The most often occurring infections are the acute viral infections of the upper respiratory tract.They happen during the winter mostly, when our body gets chilled or when we face situation of group or epidemic diseases. United under the common name “cold”, the infections manifest bydischarge from the nose or from the bronchi, sneezing, high fever, cough with or withoutexpectoration; sore throat. In cases where energy of affected person is low, complicationsoften occur, because mucous irritation opens the way for bacterium. If that is your case, theself healing is not suitable for you.The most threaten group are the little children under the age of 6, who attend child facilities or school, and the old people.
Remedies for Suddenly Developed Viral Infections
 
Some homeopathic remedies are shown when the development of the symptoms is violent andfast. Among these are Aconitum, Belladonna, Apis.
Symptoms Progress Slowly 
When the disease shows itself hesitantly, slowly over several days, then Bryonia or Gelsemium may help.
Sore Throat 
In the initial phase of throat inflamation some homeopathic remedies may stop the infection for several hours and lead to complete cure.
Sore Throat Remedies
Very often the "cold" is accompanied by throat or ear pains. In other cases everything startswith sore throat. Always remember, that throat andtonsilspains may develop into very seriousconditions. You should apply self healing with homeopathic remedies for sore throat only in thebeginning of the viral infection, and when the presenting symptoms clearly point to certainremedy. If your condition is more complicated, or you had waited or tried another treatment, donot try to heal alone, seek for help.When you have all presenting sympoms of 
Bell.
, but also have raspberry colour of the tongue,scarlet redness and much dryness of mucous membranes in mouth and throat, with burningpain and constant desire for swalllowing in spite of the pain, then Bell. in 200 C potency shouldhelp over 24 hours. Apply in water solution often, till the pains are present.When throat starts to ache and you
feel the pain as if you have stick or fish bone
lodged inyour throat or tonsils, then Apis or Hepar sulphur may help. Apis mellifica (Apis) is fast remedy. It has sudden beginning with red, dry shining throat, as if polished. The pain in throat are
stitching and burning 
,
better from drinking cold water or ice
and
worse from warm food and drinks
. The pains are there even when you are notswallowing. The uvula is
swollen, hangs like a bag filled with water,
the tonsils are enlarged.The patient is uneasy on a physical level, manifesting motor anxiety like Rhus-t. and Acon. Theremedy works well in high potencies, over 200 C.Hepar sulphur (Hep.) If your tonsils are enlarged with pulsating pains in them, stitching pains inears on swallowing, and you
feel better from warm drinks
, Hep. may be the righthomeopathic remedy. Hep. is applicable when
suppuration process is on the way 
, and thepatient often has white spots on tonsils and enlarged lymph nodes on the neck.
Extremely chilly 
, sensitive
to least movement of air 
, cannot bear cold air and aggravates from beinguncovered even for a little; very sensitive to touch and strong irritability – these are the maincharacteristics of Hep.When given in potency 30 C and higher,
Hep. will suppress suppuration
and make you wellsoon.
Sudden, Fast, Unexpected Cold
 Aconitum napellus (Acon.)Sudden beginning, several hours after being disposed at
cold wind
. Very fast raise of thetemperature, over 38.5 C, possibly with chilly shivers. Red face, which may alternate withpaleness. Very intense anxiety at psycho-physical level, even fear of death. The patientdesires someone to stay close to him. Intense
thirst for cold water 
. Dry painful cough. Aggravates at night.
 
The potency for acute conditions should be at least 30 C. I usually give 200 C, with very goodeffect, especially on children. Very rare the remedy must be repeated. If the child perspiratesafter you gave Acon. and falls asleep, then you most probably sucseeded in your choice. Applythe remedy only if the symptoms aggravate again. The better the situation becomes, the morerarely the remedy must be given – it is common principle for all homeopathic remedies.Belladonna (Bell.)Suddenly temperature rises very high. Unlike Acon., the patient is very
slack, even dazed 
. If thetemperature is above 39.0 C, you may observe even delirious state, and convulsions (mostlywith little children). With desire to be well covered in bed, the patient shall
feel worse frommotion and bright light 
(even artificial) and shall have
aversion to touch
. You may possiblyobserve
 pulsating headache
, dry irritating cough and
strong desire for lemonade or lemon juice
.But unlike Acon., this patient shall not be thirsty, notwithstanding the high fever, and the skinshall not be burning with dry heat but perspiring on covered parts. The eyes are brightly open,glistening and with dilated pupils.Usually the potency that works well is 200 C. Repetition should follow patient state – seeabove with Acon. If the potency is lower than 30 C, the repetitions must be more often.
Bryonia alba Roots of this plant are used for preparation of the homeopathic remedy
Bryonia alba (Bry.)This remedy is very often applicable to people who are focused on their business, afraid frompoverty and feel uneasy about their finances. The beginning will be slow, even hesitant. Theymay feel well for a while, then aggravate again, and they may “drag” such state for some time.But regardless of this slowness, after few days they may wake up finding that their conditionhad surprisingly become serious and the cold had “descended” to their chest.The temperature can be 37.0 C or very high. The patient requires
to be left alone
, is veryirritable and even rude with those close to him trying to help.
Dry cough, very painful,
they mayeven hold their chest during it, to lower the pain. Very
thirsty for large quantities of cold water,
they
feel aggravated by the slightest motion
– even of the eyelids – and feel better whenthey lay on or press the affected part. Same is valid for their headache, which ameliorates bypressure or tight bandage, and cold external compress.Bry. is not a fast remedy. It works well in potencies up to 30 C and needs more repetitions.You may have better result if you make water solution of the remedy and then drink from itoften during the day, always stiring the solution before drinking.Remember, in the state of Bry.the more you rest, the faster you shall recover.
