Naturally Support the Immune System This Winter

Nov 29, 2014 12:25PM ● By Cindy Sanders

Homeopathy can be a great way to help boost the immune system during the winter cold and flu season. A few go-to remedies include:

Oscillococcinum: This remedy helps relieve flu-like symptoms. At the first sign of a cold or flu, fill the cap with pellets and take under the tongue up to four times a day or until symptoms improve.

Aconite 30c: Useful remedy when there is a sudden onset of cold symptoms.

Belladonna 30c: Helpful with sudden onset of fever with symptoms including a hot, red face; glassy eyes; and a red, inflamed throat.

Nux Vomica 30c: Beneficial for colds with excessive sneezing, chills and thick nasal congestion along with cough. Also good for stomach flu and stomach upset from overindulgence in food or alcohol. Tis the season! 

Pulsatilla 30c: Suitable for sinus issues. It’s an ideal remedy for clingy, crying children that have green nasal discharge and red cheeks.

An acute homeopathic kit is also useful, especially in households with children.
