This Research Study has been ongoing for the last 16 years. A Homeopathic Remedy is given once a month from October (starting after Thanksgiving) until the end of April (flu season) in order to afford protection from the current flu virus. Both adults and children may participate.
Ongoing participants of this study report the following: “maybe a few slight symptoms the first year, but not nearly as bad as other people in the office … thought I was going to catch something but it didn’t manifest … and for those who have participated for a number of years … no flu symptoms when others around me were falling like flies!“
This Homeopathic Remedy is made from strains of the last three major flu pandemics over the last 100 years. This means (homeopathically speaking) that in each pellet of the Remedy, there is some of the original flu (infinitesimally small amount) that is currently transforming itself on an ongoing basis which then, according to the first Homeopathic Principle of Like Cures Like, Like also PREVENTS Like with respect to viral epidemics. This remedy also includes Spanish Flu Virus of 1918-1919 (responsible for the death of 50,000,000 people worldwide).
One of the reasons I started this program many years ago was to avoid the flu vaccine adjuvants (substances that hold the vaccine in suspension); namely, aluminum, formaldehyde and mercury (thimerosal). All three adjuvants are toxic to the human body. The vaccine is also put into an “egg” base which I suspect may account for the significant increase in egg allergies. Additionally, the flu virus, if caught naturally, would pass through a number of immune complexes; namely, tonsils in the throat, numerous immunoglobulins in the gut (IgA, IgG, IgM), and finally would pass through the liver which (when working properly) would detoxify those poisonous substances. The vaccine, on the other hand, is injected directly into the muscle and enters the bloodstream without the normal exposure to your immune system.
Homeopathic Flu Prevention remedies are safe, non-toxic and do not interfere with other medications you may be taking. And they do prevent the flu. Homeopathic Medicines increase the vitality of the individual and strengthen the body so that you are less susceptible to actually contracting this “dis-ease.”
