A natural, homeopathic remedy for swine flu can be valuable to know.
Swine Flu Outbreak
Stomach symptoms; such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, may also occur but are more common in children than adults. A possible homeopathic remedy for swine flu tummy upset: ginger, mint, chamomile, black tea for upset stomach, also the black raspberry and blackberry in juice form sipped or limited quantity (2-3 TBS or a half a shot glass) may help prevent vomiting and calm nausea.
Another possible homeopathic remedy for swine flu might be one of those remedies that include one of the following single remedies: Aconite-Allium Cepa - Eupatorium perfoliatum - Gelsemium - Oscillococcinum - Arsenicum Album is suggested. Washington Homeopathic remedies have been found useful, but Borion is also a reputable company.
Onion, Garlic, and Echinacea, are a few plant-based treatments that could have success against viral agents.
Make sure you wear personal protective equipment (mask, glasses, & gloves). If you dont have the proper protective equipment handkerchiefs, bandanas, even the ski masks that have eye openings may help. A long sleeve oversized shirt that is rinsed in chlorine water and dried often would provide a hospital type over covering for an individual caring for an infected person.
Another preventative measure is hand washing after any/all possible contacts. To avoid spreading it make follow simple hygiene; frequent hand washing, coughing/sneezing into the crook of your arm.
Go heavy on the vitamin C foods, and avoid dairy products as these produce mucous. Tomato soup, chicken soup (some one recently found that the aroma probably the spices and onions) might be beneficial as might purees of fruits and high c vegetables. Avoid fried foods and heavy meals; many small light meals will digest easier and the nutrients will be absorbed better.
Another homeopathic remedy for swine flu fever might be willow bark. Other herbs that might relieve fever; feverfew and sage, to name just a few. Rubbing alcohol applied to pressure points and allowed to evaporate cools the body naturally. Plus ice packs under armpits and near femoral arteries have been used by hospitals in the past to reduce fevers. Remember to keep heavy bedding off an individual with a high fever. A light blanket or sheet is okay, but avoid thick bedding as it has the opposite effect keeping the already warm body hot.
Dehydration is a danger to one who has contracted any type of flu, but especially swine flu. One possible homeopathic remedy for swine flu is this home made rehydration formula. This formula can help replace the electrolytes lost during dehydration; it is made from sugar, baking soda, salt, salt substitute and water
ORAL REHYDRATION FLUID FORMULA1/4 teaspoon Salt (common table salt - sodium chloride)
1/4 teaspoon Salt Substitute or "Lite Salt" (potassium chloride)
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 ½ tablespoons Sugar
Combine these ingredients and dissolve them in one quart of water.
Clear flavorings such as invisible Kool-Aid or non red or red tinted Kool-Aid (DO NOT ADD THE SUGAR REQUIRED) can be used to flavor this formula. Stick to lemonade, lemon lime, or the invisible colors as they do not contain red dye which could provide false alarms later when the individual has a bowel movement.
Persons with heavy productive coughs or with difficulty breathing can often be eased by sitting upright supported by pillows. Elevating the mattress is also a method for elevating the patient, and can be achieved by placing a couple concrete blocks under the mattress. Placing rolls of bedding or cushions from other furniture under the mattress is easily done for infants or toddlers in cribs.
Steam is a good way to loosen congestion, adding herbs such as mint, eucalyptus, tea tree, lemon, garlic or onion to the water that is used to produce the steam might help more. Vaporizers are very helpful as continuous warm steam is better than intermittent home made steam.
Croup tents can be very helpful as they keep the steam near the patient much in a way that oxygen tents do. Sheets draped over the patients bed or nailed/stapled to walls will form a tent. Vaporizers or bowls of boiling steamy water place under them will keep the air moist.
Cough and Spit.... do not allow the crud to remain in the lungs, keep a bowl or can handy for the patient to spit into. The percussion technique used after inhalation therapy for cystic fibrosis patients may be very helpful in loosening mucous that is hard to cough up.
For nasal congestion, saline drops in the nose might be effective. The basic saline recipe includes: 1/4 tsp salt per cup of water. Treatment is just 3-8 drops per nostril... allow to drain blow your nose or aspirate using a suction bulb with infants and young children. A touch of lavender oil above each eyebrow and on each cheek might also help to loosen the nasal congestion and relieve the sinus drainage that can contribute to the coughing.
Mint and tea tree oil applied in very small amounts under the nose might also help to keep sinus passages clear. Camphor may also work but can burn the sensitive skin. Its best to place a drop on a cloth handkerchief to inhale as needed. Eucalyptus and rosemary oil have also been known to clear the nasal passages.
For coughing, cherry bark tea, ground ivy, horehound, might all be good to use with dry coughs. They can also be made into cough drops and syrup.
Black Raspberry, blackberry tea from the leaves, or juice from the fruit might squelch even the most stubborn diarrhea; one shot glass full each hour or after each bowel movement. Infants and small children as well as adults may use this for possible relief.
