The simple answer is “no” because both Moderna and Pfizer are mRNA in design.
Below are some well-referenced facts to consider.
HP is an energetic form of homeopathy that dilutes and potentizes natural substances to act upon the vital force, or energy system, of an individual. Produced in FDA approved pharmacies under stringent guidelines, HP can be administered in small pellets that are taken orally, or liquid form. A natural method to familiarize the immune system with a disease on the energetic level prior to coming into contact with that disease in nature, individuals are more likely to repel the disease altogether, or if contracted, more able to mount a natural and adequate immune response.
Is it Safe?
There has never been a death or injury from the use of HP with children, adults, or pregnant women. It is non-toxic, contains no preservatives, adjuvants, antibiotics or toxic components of any kind. When children accidentally swallow large amounts, there is no cause for concern since this is an energetic form of treatment. There are no molecules of the original substance.
Is it Effective?
Emerging studies from Cuba over the last decades confirm the easy administration and effectiveness of homeoprophylaxis. Along with his notable success using HP for leptospirosis, Dr. Gustavo Bracho, of the world-renowned Finlay Institute also studied the effects of HP with Hepatitis A, Dengue Fever, Acute Respiratory Infections and Acute Diarrheal Diseases. Significant reductions in all of these diseases resulted from use of HP.
Dr, Isaac Golden, the world’s leading researcher of homeoprophylaxis, in his recent article stated:
I published two articles in 2019 describing in different ways the use of HP in three countries in over 250 million people on an annualised basis, by mainly government agencies in those countries. One of the examples given is especially appropriate in the current situation with [the current virus].
Readers may recall the Swine Flu scare which swept the world around 2009/2010. In my country it led to the Federal Government spending around $120,000,000 on vaccines, most of which remained unused. Billions were spent in the USA on the development and sale of the vaccine, and similarly in many other countries internationally.
However, the Cuban government had seen the remarkably successful HP immunisation programs against Leptospirosis in 2007 and 2008, and instructed the Finlay Institute (Cuba’s vaccine manufacturer which, under the inspired leadership of Dr Conception Campa Huergo (a real scientist) and her Vice President Dr Gustavo Bracho, prepared the HP interventions), to homeopathically immunise the entire population of Cuba over 12 months of age against Swine Flu – around 9.8 million people.
When Dr Bracho and I studied the 2010 data it became clear that we could not quantify the success of the program against Swine Flu because there were practically no cases, and it was not possible to say how many travellers entered the country carrying the virus. However, in the same intervention Finlay also immunised against Pneumococcal disease, and the published data shows a clear reduction in the disease in 2010, and a return to expected levels in 2011, and shown in Figure 1.
Figure 1: Incidence of Deaths from Influenza and Pneumococcal Disease per 10,000
Residents of Cuba, 2000 to 2013
Most recently, the Cuban government has distributed PrevengHo Vir© to boost natural immunity in the presence of the current viral epidemic. Its homeopathic ingredients are: A. barbariae 200c, Bacillinum 30c, Influenzinum 30c, Tuberculinum aviare 200c, Pyrogenium 200c, Arsenicum alb 200c, Eupatorium perfoliatum 200c and Baptisia tentoria 200c.
Attesting to the individualized nature of homeopathic prescribing, Dr. Golden’s recent recommendation for boosting immunity in the presence of the current viral epidemic has been; Bacillinum, Pneumococcinum, Influenzinum (3 types), Arsenicum album, Justicia adhatoda, Gelsemium, Bryonia and Antimonium tartaricum.
Other well-respected homeopaths have suggested the use of other remedies, like Arsenicum alone, or a mixture of remedies intended to address potential symptoms. Since HP is intended to support and enhance natural immunity, there is no ‘wrong’ answer to the components utilized.
The Real Immunity Influenzium CV30 formula applies Dr. Golden’s recommendation to include Bacillinum, Pneumococcinum, and 3 types of Influenzinum. The additional remedies included in his preparation can apply to the symptom presentation of many respiratory illnesses once contracted. Our recommendation is to contact a qualified homeopath if symptoms develop in order to be addressed professionally and individually.
Please note that due to recent warnings by the FDA issued to natural practitioners, it’s important that we mention that homeopathy “does not treat, cure, or prevent specific diseases.” Homeopathy enhances natural immunity, decreases susceptibility to disease, and exercises the immune system in such a way as to improve health outcomes. In order to avoid censorship and get this information out, the Real Immunity Team has gone to great efforts to craft this message.
In light of current expensive allopathic protocols and potential effects of pharmaceutical prescribing, Dr. Golden advises the following:
Homeopathy could assist all Governments immediately, at a low cost, without any risk of side-effects, and make a definite impact on the progress of [the current virus]. In decades to come I expect historians to look back at recent decades of pharmaceutical aggression and their domination of many health systems, and measure the immense cost, and the damage to millions of lives caused by those who prevented decision makers from seeing the true evidence-based benefits of safe and inexpensive natural options.
Here at Real Immunity we applaud and support forward thinkers such as Dr. Isaac Golden and the Cuban government in their application of safe, effective, and well-researched methods of protection. We encourage you to share this information far and wide to raise consciousness, as we promote non-toxic methods to build real immunity. Then contact your qualified HP provider to take the next step.
Wondering if you may have the flu? Want to be prepared in case your family does come down with the flu? You’ve come to the right place.
In Cilla’s online class Nine Remedies for the Flu, she shares a brief, yet impactful history of the use of homeopathy versus conventional methods for various flus. As you may have guessed, homeopathy came through with flying colors in several cases with unprecedented results. Frequently, the conventional treatment for influenza actually caused severe side effects, as in the case of the 1918 Spanish flu when Aspirin was employed to lower fevers and it simply drove the illness to the lungs.
Most Real Immunity followers are already familiar with the Health Helix, Cilla’s visual explanation of how illness, when suppressed, can be driven deeper into the body. The Health Helix presents a visual explanation of the damage conventional drugs and suppressed symptoms can cause by giving many examples, like how the use of cortisone cream actually is correlated with later onset of asthma as benign skin issues such as eczema are driven deeper into the body.
Cilla starts the class by making an important distinction regarding the flu: Often what we think is the flu is a different virus or illness, but regardless of the cause, flu-like symptoms: fever, headache, lack of energy, sore throat, runny nose, and body aches can be addressed with homeopathic medicines. Cilla reviews nine remedies for the flu (or flu-like symptoms), including physical and emotional indications for the use of each. In the class she discusses how to distinguish flu symptoms from flu-like viral symptoms as well.
This class is so much more than a list of remedies though. There’s quite a bit of homeopathic theory as well. Cilla shares how mainstream thinking regarding viruses is shortsighted for various reasons. One reason is because our bodies are mostly comprised of bacteria, viruses and parasites: four poundsof such materials on average. She names the many viruses that most humans have riding along with them and shares that usually there is nothing at all wrong with these viruses lying latent in our bodies “as long as we just live in a balanced state.” She further shares that viruses, in fact, are essential for human evolution.
To better understand how homeopathy can benefit and address flu symptoms, Cilla addresses many of the misunderstandings regarding the immune system and flu vxs. She shares that herd immunity can only happen when one acquires a disease naturally, which creates a cell-mediated immune response. It’s important to note that vxs do not create a cell-mediated response, instead, as Cilla explains in her class, they artificially elevate antibody production (which compromises general immunity). Cilla shares research that shows the increased risk of respiratory viruses associated with the flu vx. Antibody production is not the gold standard for immunity.
Furthermore, Cilla warns that vaccines are often recommended for individuals who are actually at greatest risk of suffering a side-effect from the vx. She shares the many issues associated with flu vaccines in pregnant women, and how vxs after age 50 are associated with neurological damage.
Another misconception that Cilla rebukes is that fevers are problematic. She shares why it is important to support a fever, how to support a fever and issues related to suppressing fevers. Fevers are simply another way the body discharges symptoms, and we never want to suppress such discharges. She offers information on how to support the flu and fevers using cell salts as well. By supporting the discharge process of flu symptoms with homeopathic remedies recommended in this class, Cilla shares that she has often seen lengthy flu symptoms truncated from two weeks to a few days. She shares a story of how she used Bryonia, when indicated for her flu-like symptoms and within hours she was back to normal.
Cilla ends the class by offering suggestions on how to homeopathically prevent flu symptoms. She shares why her favorite preventive remedy, Influenzium, a version of which she prepares herself for clients, is created with historical flus. [CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK UNTIL future notice. She shares when and how to dose using Influenzinum as well. Cilla’s newest version of Influenzinum now contains homeopathically prepared components to boost immunity against current viruses.

Cilla recently offered a live discussion in her free online Facebook community regarding Influenzinum. In this live, she answered the following questions:
What is in Influenzinum? (What is it made of?)
How would one dose?
Are there concerns individuals with asthma and other diseases should be aware of when using Influenzinum?
How can Influenzinum be ordered?
A brief description of Cilla’s answers can be found below, but it is recommend that you join her group by requesting access here in order to listen to her message in totality.
What is in Influenzinum?
There are various forms of Influenzinum on the market, however, the one she sells is her favorite for various reasons. Cilla explains that she orders the liquid remedy prepared by a pharmacy in England and prepares the bottles she sells herself. Her remedy is very broad and she finds that it is the most effective.
Another perk is that one bottle can be used year after year. (Cilla shares a method of stretching the remedy in the video linked above.)
How Would One Dose?
Choosing how to dose is very personal and dependent upon two factors: Exposure and susceptibility. For example, if you are flying or work with children, that increases your exposure and may mean you’d want to take the remedy more often. If you are susceptible to the flu or viruses, you have an increased susceptibility and may want to take the remedy more often as well. Generally, Cilla recommends a dosing schedule of one to four times a month, depending on your exposure and susceptibility.
Are there concerns individuals with asthma and other diseases should be aware of when using Influenzinum?
The basic answer to this question is “no.” Cilla explains why individuals with compromised health should avoid the flu shot in the video. For more questions regarding immunity, check out Cilla’s first film in her three part docuseries, Quest for Real Immunity, which reveals the relationship between humans and viruses. That film is a great first step into understanding the complex intellect of our immune system and how to enhance it’s effectiveness.
It is important to know that nothing, including Influenzinum is 100% effective. Cilla recommends that families be prepared in case they do contract the flu. She offers a class called 9 Remedies for Flu for individuals who want to be prepared.
How can Influenzinum be ordered?

Pregnant women, babies as young as six months old, the immuno-compromised, and the elderly are all being told they need an annual flu shot.
This has not always been the case. Before 2000, only the elderly were advised to receive these inoculations. And the elderly didn’t actually benefit. Researchers report that the increase in elderly influenza inoculation coverage in the U.S. after 1980 wasn’t actually accompanied by reduction in influenza-related mortality. (Read findings here.)
Let’s take a deeper look at effectiveness and safety issues, along with a natural option.
According to the CDC, the 2014-2015 influenza vaccine had an efficacy rate of only 19 percent. Also, the CDC’s committee that advises on immunization practices announced nasal spray flu inoculations should not be used in the 2016-2017 flu season because, “no protective benefit could be measured” from taking them.”
A study in the American Journal of Perinatology found that women who received flu inoculations during pregnancy had the same risk for influenza-like illness as uninoculated women. The same was true for their infants.
The safety of flu shots in pregnant populations has never been adequately tested. For example:
Many inoculations still contain thimerosal, despite claims that it’s been removed. According to the CDC, 48 million flu inoculations now available contain mega-doses of thimerosal. The material safety data sheet (MSDS) for thimerosal warns that it may cause adverse reproductive effects and birth defects in humans.
A peer-reviewed study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases (March 2016) found people inoculated against the flu three years in a row were actually at higher risk of being infected with the flu.
In 2014, $4.9 million was paid out to individuals with adverse flu shot reactions. By 2015 they paid out $61 million, as reflected in this report from the U.S. court of Federal Claims.
Many pregnant women, hospital workers, doctors and nurses are asking for homeopathic influenzinum for natural immune boosting during flu season. Naturally sourced, influenzinum causes zero injuries. It’s safe for infants, the elderly, and pregnant women.
During the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic, homeopathy shone brightly for its success. Those treated with conventional medicine at that time had a 28% mortality rate. The mortality rate for those treated with homeopathy was a mere 0.8%.
It’s important to understand more about influenza itself in order to make informed choices for yourself and your family.

We’ve been arguing about germs for a long time.
Ignaz Semmelweis (1816-1865), a Hungarian physician, died in an insane asylum in 1865 at the age of 47. He was committed for suggesting that child-bed fever and deaths were caused by germs: germs from the filthy hands of doctors who had dissected cadavers then immediately delivering babies.
The medical and scientific communities were highly offended at Semmelweis’ suggestion that they should wash their hands.
After hand-washing protocols were implemented, the mortality rate dropped from 18.27 per cent, to 1.27 per cent, to zero.
Not long after, a German and a Frenchman were revered for their “discovery” of germs.
The French wine industry engaged French chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) to identify the process of fermentation. It was all about the wine. He developed ways to prevent wine from being contaminated by unwanted microorganisms. Thus, “pasteurization” was born.
Robert Koch (1843-1910), a German microbiologist, took it a step further by identifying the relationship between specific germs and diseases. He devised a method for testing which germ caused which disease, and Koch’s Postulates resulted. These four postulates are worth examining, as they inform the battle-ready stance against bugs that prevails to this day.
Koch nabbed the bacteria responsible for dreaded tuberculosis, winning him the Nobel prize for advancing this newfound knowledge that germs caused disease.
Prior to Pasteur and Koch conducting their research, the English physician Edward Jenner (1749-1823) was experimenting with cows. He observed that milkmaids who contracted cowpox, a relatively mild disease, were immune to deadly smallpox. One such milkmaid caught cowpox from Blossom, her dairy cow. Jenner took pus from the milkmaid’s sores and rubbed it onto a scratch on a subject’s arm. His subject, James Phipps, did indeed come down with a mild case of cowpox, and this is where it gets interesting.
Jenner then intentionally infected James with smallpox. The boy’s enhanced immunity was able to resist the smallpox virus and he didn’t get sick. Presto–inoculations were invented.
The risk with using foreign media is the inevitability of also acquiring unknown viruses common to species other than humans. We have seen repercussions of this with polio inoculations containing Simian Virus 40.
At the same time, a medical doctor from Vienna, James Compton Burnett (1840-1901), expressed concern over the new practice of vaccination. Steeped in homeopathic theory, Burnett postulated that grafting a foreign disease onto the body would have far-reaching negative effects.
Inoculation exemplifies an attempt to exercise domination over all pathogens, and insulate the human biome from perceived pathogenic effects: a delusion born of pure hubris.
The human vital force evolved to acquire infectious contagious disease naturally. The innate wisdom of the vital force governs the physical body, the energy body, and the spiritual body. It has been doing an eloquent dance with the process of maturing the immune system since time began. The principle of vitalism governs this concept.
Vaccinosis is the grafting of a foreign disease onto the human being by bypassing the normal mechanism of contracting disease, which takes place through mucosal membrane. Injecting pathogens directly into the bloodstream is an unnatural introduction.
Have you noticed the increase in exaggerated forms of inflammation such as eczema, asthma, mollescum, and serious autoimmune irregularities? This is because when you impose an immune challenge containing excipients and foreign mediums, bypassing the innate arm of the immune system, the humoral arm overreacts, producing a terrifying array of compensatory responses. The individual now has unfamiliar disease grafted upon the human biome.
For more information on vitalism and factors that detrimentally effect our immune system, check out Cilla’s class on the Health Helix.
This manipulation derails the brilliant design of Mother Nature and her natural evolution of immunity that’s taken place over millions of years. Burnett posited that homeoprophylaxis would be much safer and support the natural immune process. Homeoprophylaxis aims to integrate and synchronize the human species with other life forms, in the most compatible way, instead of imposing separation.
In the late 1700s Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), physician, chemist, and linguist, discovered that his patient taking homeopathic belladonna was immune to the scarlet fever epidemic to which all her family members had succumbed. With this, the first homeoprophylaxis application was discovered. It continued to work prophylactically for others and the King of Prussia mandated its use to stem future scarlet fever outbreaks.
Since there is no material substance in a homeopathic remedy, it does not act in a physiological manner. Rather, it is energetic, meaning the solution contains the frequency of the source material after being diluted repeatedly until no molecules remain. And why is this important?
Manipulation carries risk, then let’s not manipulate! Mother Nature knows what she’s doing. The evolution of these microbes—bacteria and viruses–has occurred right alongside of humans. All life forms have a place and are interrelated. We will never understand the full implications of manipulating them to what we assume is our benefit.
Homeoprophylaxis honors our relationship with other organisms. Instead of manipulation, it offers cooperation. By introducing the frequency of a pathogen to the human organism, a recognition takes place. It’s like downloading information.
According to Carlo Rubbia, Italian physicist and Nobel Laureate (1984) in physics, “Less than one billionth of the universe is matter – the rest is energy and information.”
Recognition of this information provides a reference point. When the pathogen is met in nature, its frequency is recognized. Either the human doesn’t contract the disease, or a natural and appropriate immune response takes place. As studies have shown no antibody production with homeoprophylaxis, there is no artificial emphasis on the humoral arm of the immune system.
Gustavo Bracho, PhD, is an immunologist with the Findlay Institute in Havana Cuba. In 2010 he injected rats with leptospirosis after orally receiving homeoprophylaxis. Eighty percent did not contract the disease while producing no antibodies. I attended a conference where he provided an oral presentation of these results. The rat control group without homeoprophylaxis all died. Bracho and others have suggested that becoming familiar with the frequency of a disease confers all the benefits of receiving the wild disease, without the risks. Because there is nothing material in the exchange, there is no resulting chaos from manipulation through attenuation, additives, or introduction in a way other than nature’s way by contraction through mucous membrane.
We have a clear example of wreaking havoc by suppressing bacteria when antibiotics were the magical discovery of 1928 and in full scale use by the 1940s. Sure, they gave a one-two punch to the scourge of syphilis, but at what cost? It became too easy to simply prescribe antibiotics for every perceived infection. When you reduce one population, another expands to take its place, and here we go again. Manipulation!
This has not been the case with over 200 years of clinical observation of homeoprophylaxis. In fact, based on Isaac Golden’s 15-year study with 3000 children, more robust long-term health was observed in the HP group than in unvaccinated children. Surprisingly, they experienced fewer ear infections, allergies, and eczema.
By introducing pathogens in their energetic state, one disease at a time, there is no disruption of the natural relationship we humans share with these microbes.
We do not have all the answers. We never will. In the end, we benefit from the presence of these other life forms to communicate information, to digest our food, maintain homeostasis, and even shape emotional temperament.
They are in, on, and around us all the time, contributing to our immune maturation and evolution. In fact, the human organism is made up of only 10% human cells; the rest is bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites.
Additionally, according to the endosymbiotic hypothesis, cellular mitochondria closely resemble certain bacteria and this symbiotic relationship was probably formed millions of year ago in the process of evolution.
Our relationship with all other life forms is meant to reflect respect and mutual cooperation in order to assure the balance of life itself. Relating with pathogens as information is more beneficial, less invasive, and enables peaceful co-existence.
The war against disease ends.
Watch my three-part docu-series Real Immunity. Parts One and Two are now available. Look for Part Three in 2019.
To date, marketing for conventional immunity products has instructed us that inoculation is the only method of immunization we have. There is another choice. We are all in agreement that keeping our children healthy is the top priority.
True health is not just a matter of producing antibodies to specific diseases. If this were the case we wouldn’t be seeing outbreaks of diseases such as mumps or pertussis in people who have gone the conventional route. True health is a multi-faceted process. It includes sometimes getting sick. Exposure to microbes teaches our immune system to recognize and mount an appropriate response to bacteria and viruses. Microbes are all around us, inside of us and on our skin. Disease is not separate from us. The complex task of keeping these microbes in balance begins on the first day of life. It happens by contact with life itself.
Inoculating against specific germs by injecting antigens, mixed with preservatives, adjuvents, and foreign DNA directly into the bloodstream is not a sustainable answer to the immune system enjoying long term health. Health is about more than forcibly producing antibodies.
On his deathbed, Louis Pasteur said:
“I was wrong. The microbe [germ] is nothing. The terrain [milieu] is everything.”
Homeoprophylaxis (HP) addresses our terrain. It educates the immune system to recognize a disease and either repel it or mount an effective immune response. HP is the harmonious interface of microbes and the human vital force. Harmony is necessary to strike a balance and maintain homeostasis. The fear of disease is a well-wrought marketing device that promotes symptoms as the enemy.
Symptoms are nothing more than expressions of the whole organism in an attempt to correct itself and find balance to survive and flourish. When we listen to the expression and address it in a holistic way, there’s a positive outcome. We are designed, as human beings, to expand and grow and to survive. We are programmed to self-heal, given the right environment and ingredients—love, nurturing, nutrition, stimulation and challenges. Our immune systems are attuned to this process.
The perceived reduction of symptoms by use of anti-pyretics, antibiotics and other over-the-counter products is a false solution and ultimately stagnates the system at the expense of true health.
Homeoprophylaxis respects the natural balance between bacteria, viruses, and human beings. We have all shared this planet for millennia. We depend upon bacteria for our survival. HP provides a way to live in concert with these organisms and thrive. HP educates the immune system in a gentle way, allowing maturation to occur naturally and safely. HP is delivered by mouth, traveling through the gut where 70 per cent of all immunity resides. Used for over 200 years in many countries around the world, there has never been a death or injury from HP. Abundant evidence of its effectiveness exists.
If we agree that our children’s health is a priority, we must also agree that keeping them safe with natural forms of immunization, allowing them to inherit a sustainable planet, is essential.

The Spanish Flu of 1918 was no match for homeopathy!
The mortality rate of people treated with traditional medicine and drugs was over 28 percent: those treated by homeopathic physicians had a mortality rate of just 1.05 percent. Homeopathy works!
The body has natural intelligence and the capacity to heal itself. It needs to express symptoms, have discharges, and be supported by natural means such as homeopathy. A runny nose is purging sinus waste products. A cough purges the airway. A fever resets the immune system, eliminates toxins, and restores the bacterial balance thus maturing the immune system. We can often see developmental leaps after a fever.
Homeopathy is a 200-year-old science of medicine that addresses both acute and chronic conditions. It’s based upon the principle of “like treats like.” If something in nature is capable of causing symptoms, then in a homeopathic preparation it can cure the same symptoms. To treat homeopathically every symptom of an illness is noted – physical, emotional, and mental – and a remedy is chosen that most closely matches the exact characteristics.
For example: if stung by a bee, you are likely to experience pain, and hot redness with inflammation. Apis mellifica (bee venom) prepared homeopathically can quickly reduce all of these symptoms. It’s safe with no side effects due to the principle of minimum dose.
Minimum dose means the source material is diluted repeatedly until there are no original molecules left. This dilution is then applied to small lactose/sucrose pellets and taken by mouth. The individual’s vital force recognizes the frequency of the source material and sets healing into motion. The immune system then initiates healing naturally, without getting stuck at any stage, or suffering any side effects.
Each of the following remedies can be found at most co-op or natural food stores, and will be effective for influenza or flu-like illnesses. For dosing, simply start with a dose each hour for three doses, then give 3 doses per day until symptoms are 70-80% improved. A dose consists of 2-3 pellets of 30c potency.
Don’t touch the pellets with your fingers. Just tap them into the cap of the vial and pop them in the mouth to melt. If no relief after three doses, then re-evaluate symptoms and remedy choice. If you have a peaceful sleep after dosing, this is a good sign that the vital force has recognized the remedy and it’s a good match. You may see a dramatic improvement, or a gradual one. The goal is to support the system so it doesn’t get “stuck” in any phase of the illness, but moves through the stages smoothly. Frequently, the stages are actually shortened with the aid of homeopathic remedies.
Keynotes listed below are the main symptoms in a case. An illness can have many symptoms, so the question to ask is “what one symptom, if removed, would make it possible to feel better? What is most limiting in the case?” That symptom is the leading keynote upon which you should prescribe. Don’t worry if all symptoms listed under the remedy aren’t evident. You need a few strong keynotes to go on, and then consider “modalities.”
Modalities are either times of the day when symptoms are better or worse, or what condition or activity reduces the discomfort. Many people will say nothing makes them feel better. In this case, you just observe what they have a desire for. Hot drinks? Cold drinks? Activity? Company? To be left alone? These are all various modalities.
Influenzinum is a great preventative to take for flu-like illnesses. It can be found in 30c potency and taken once a month during flu season. An excellent study from Brazil (2011. International Journal of High Dilution Res. “Homeopathic medicines for prevention of influenza and acute respiratory tract infections in children:” blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial) concluded use of homeopathic medicines minimized the number of flu and acute respiratory infection symptomatic episodes in children, was cost-effective, and carried no ill effects, encouraging the homeopathic prophylactic potential to be investigated in further studies.
Choosing a method for flu-like symptoms that can be curative rather than simply palliative is a wise choice when your goal is to support real immunity naturally. Purchase Cilla’s preferred Influenzinum product here.
This is the first remedy to think of when coming down with a flu-like illness. It can be taken within the first 24 hours of symptoms suddenly appearing. This is especially true if the symptoms came on after being exposed to harsh weather or a cold wind. You can often nip the virus in the bud with Aconitum in this way if taken immediately. The symptoms you may see are a fever with chills, flushed cheeks and a rapid pulse.
