As I have had at least one patient with confirmed flu, and a couple of others whom I suspect may have had it, it is time to raise awareness of the coming epidemic. Those of you who use the homeopathic preparation Influenzinum should begin now. The protocol hasn’t changed — once a day for 3 days, and then once a week for the duration of the epidemic.
It is not clear as yet whether we are going to see occasional cases for a while, with the real epidemic to come later (the usual scenario) or whether the epidemic will peak early this year.
Please refer the flu article on my website for more basic information regarding flu. I haven’t updated this article for several years, but the basic information is still valid.
Don’t forget to maintain Vitamin D status, to use proper hygiene, and in the event of a widespread epidemic, to use common sense.
I will write further as time permits, and will also comment on Ebola virus.
