This summer seems to have brought with it a nasty flu, lots of our clients have found it mostly affects the stomach, in the form of vomiting and or diarrhea but some people have also had huge fevers, body aches and a loose cough. We have had success with homeopathic Pyrogen. This remedy is very helpful when the nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are accompanied by high fever and an accompanying headache . There is also a thirst for small amounts.
A teenager came to see Sally who had been vomiting after breakfast and lasting until late afternoon for three weeks. She was hot and cold alternately through the day and was very thirsty for small amounts of cold water, but when the illness was at its peak this water was vomited soon after drinking. She had lost ten kilos of weight since this started and had even spent time in hospital for investigations. The youngster told me she felt no nausea if she sat in the bath. This is a confirming symptom for the homeopathic remedy Pyrogen. The patient got better over the next twenty four hours.
It is important to keep the fluid intake up when the vital fluids are being depleted by excessive vomiting and diarrhea. Gastrolites are a good idea! It can be seen here just how effective a well prescribed homeopathic remedy can be and I have one grateful patient! Sometimes an epidemic, as this seems to be, has a specific remedy that works for everyone but this is not always so.
