Beats formaldahyde and thermisol (I know I spelled wrong) and everything else in those solutions.
Any "Oscillo" that was originally in the starting substance has been diluted so much that the final homeopathic product contains none at all.

Details are in the links previously provided.

There is a whole major part of the world who use these remedies, the U.S. being the last on the list of countries. Wonder why that is.


As from the beginning you and I will agree to disagree on how we choose to prevent and heal illnesses.

If you have symptoms of the flu an initial start is to get tested for FluA and FluB. The importance of early diagnosis should be noted. If positive you have the option to begin Tamiflu which can be helpful in shortening the length and intensity of the Flu. Rest, hydration and symptom control are key. Each person is different and will respond to a vast array of homeopathic and allopathic options. Do what works for you.

If you are craving a food, eat that food unless contraindicated by other reasons. All decisions about medicine should be reviewed between you and your doctor.

A very important point. If you have other illness. e.g. lung problems, diabetes, heart failure or have been in poor health you MUST take health status changes seriously. Do not delay being seen by a physician. This is also terribly important for children signs of shortness of breath should be a 911 call. Children should not be left alone during their illness and they should be checked on frequently. If your child has asthma or restrictive lung disease you should be in contact with your pediatrician at the 1st sign of any trouble.

Flu can be mild or serious and when it's serious it can kill. Don't quibble about this or that. Get treatment.

Many people who have died, I've read, have had other health issues that added to their flu issues.

That they are used in other parts of the world does not mean they do anything useful.

Many but not all. Flu also kills otherwise healthy people. About half of children who die from flu do not have "other health issues".

I have stated time and time again it is my and my doctorsí belief I contacted the flu via breathing airborne transmission because of my chronic autoimmune disease. No argument there either.
Just a followup to see if you're feeling better now...
