Homeopathic Influenza Remedy - Oscillococcinum for Flu

Number One Selling Homeopathic Flu Remedy

Swine Flu Pandemic April 2009

Breaking News: Swine Flu

Homeopathy Prospers Even Though There is Controversy

You might think this is old news, but in reality, this is very important information for everyone being bombarded with pressure to get your influenza vaccination. You want to be informed and educated about what you can do to prevent flu and to support your system through the symptoms. Influenza has a short incubation period which means that if you've contacted someone or been in an infected area a number of weeks ago there is no need to worry. To be sure check the flu symptoms and call your health care provider to see if you need to be under quarantine.

You are not protected against swine flu if you received a flu vaccine.

NOTE: Many of the deaths that occurred in the great 1918 Flu pandemic can be attributed to the use of aspirin which lowers fever and prevents the body's immune system to fight against the virus by raising the temperature of the body.

The World Health Organization said tests showed the virus in 12 of the Mexican patients had the same genetic structure as a new strain of swine flu, designated H1N1, seen in eight people in California and Texas.

If you typically use homeopathic remedies in your self-care protocol you might like to visit Homeopathy World Community and visit the Discussion Forum on Colds, Influenza & Epidemics.

Remember, the last swine flu episode was very short lived. Get plenty of sunshine, vitamin D and vitamin C.

Reading The Label: Anas barbariae hepatis et cordis extractum 200CK HPUS?

Homeopathic medicines use Latin names, the international scientific denomination for source materials. The active ingredient, Anas barbariae hepatis et cordis extractum, is the extract of Muscovy duck liver and heart.

The "200CK" indicates that the duck heart and liver have been homeopathically diluted by 100 and the process is repeated 200 times. The K indicates that it is prepared by the Korsakovian method, which means a single vessel is repeatedly emptied, refilled and vigorously shaken (or "succussed," in homeopathic terminology) by a machine calibrated to vibrate 150 times in 7.5 seconds. It is assumed that 1 percent remains in the vessel each time.

In other words, every time it's diluted, 99 percent of the molecules originally in the active ingredient are removed.

HPUS: Homeopathic remedies are prepared according to the guidelines listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States.

Uses: Unlike supplements, homeopathic products are required to list the symptoms the product is intended to treat.

Influenza Hits Hard

FLU.GOV is where you will hear all the government rhetoric and fear propaganda. If you have not been listening and watching Dr Tenpenny and Dr Eisenstadt and many others then please take all that is said with a grain of salt.

Influenza comes on strong. One minute you're feeling fine and the next, bam! Suddenly, you are feeling weak, sweaty, chills, trembly, sneezing like mad, tummy aches and cramps, can't think straight, and you just want to go home to bed.

Tender Loving Care

Post this article on the fridge so you remember what to do. And if the flu hits before you take this preventative step, give yourself a break from work and obligations. Snuggle up in bed and get someone to take care of you.

Double-Blind Studies of Oscillococcinum

Oscillococcinum has been shown to decrease symptoms of flu for a significant number of patients.

A double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study of 100 patients showed that, when given at the onset of influenza-like symptoms, Oscillococcinum worked better than the placebo in reducing the symptoms of chills (85.7% vs. 57.1%), stiffness (72.5% vs. 41.9%) and fever (79.1% vs. 40%). Also 80% of patients given Oscillococcinum' reported the treatment to be a success vs. 38% in the placebo group.'

In a double-blind, clinical trial of 300 patients with influenza-like symptoms, 55% of the patients taking Oscillococcinum' reported no chills after four days, compared with 27% of the placebo- controlled group. More patients in the Oscillo' group also reported no aches after four days-70% were ache-free compared with 48% in the placebo group. Fever in the Oscillococcinum' group was significantly lower starting on the I second day of the treatment, compared to the placebo group.'

In a double-blind, clinical trial of 478 patients published in The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology in 1989, researchers studied Oscillococcinum's effect on nine influenza-like symptoms-fever, headaches, stiffness, lumbar and particular pain, shivers, cough, coryza and fatigue - versus a placebo. The proportion of patients who recovered within 48 hours of treatment was significantly superior among the Oscillo group than the placebo group.

A recent double-blind, clinical trial of 372 patients performed by f researchers at a German University and published in April 1998 yielded results similar to those published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology (above). The complete disappearance of symptoms after 48 hours was significantly superior among the Oscillo group than among the placebo group. This clinical trial also showed that treatment of influenza-like symptoms with Oscillococcinum' has positive effect on the decline of symptoms and on the duration of the disease.

Oscillococcinum also called Anas barbariae hepatis

There are a few homeopathic approaches for the onset of flu. As soon as I notice those body aches and pains and realize this isn't a regular cold, that's when I take a dose of Oscillococcinum.

How To Take The Remedy

  • The package will recommend downing the entire tube of little pellets. This is totally unnecessary. You can place 3-4 pellets under your tongue, and repeat that a few times every hour to see if your symptoms lessen.
  • If you prefer not to take the dry dose, or you are giving the Oscillococcinum to an infant or child, you can drop a few pellets into 4-6 ounces of water, stir the glass and give by teaspoonful or let the child sip the glass.

Pro-active Treatment

You can begin taking a dose of this homeopathic remedy as the winter flu season begins and repeat a dose each week or every other week to build your immune system.

This makes your purchase last a lot longer than one season.

  1. Convenient - does not need refrigeration
  2. Does not get outdated if properly kept in storage away from microwaves, damp areas, sunlight exposure
  3. No side effects - no drowsiness or stimulation
  4. Safe for workers operating vehicles and machinery
  5. Natural ingredients [no preservatives or mercury]
  6. Easy and pleasant to take
  7. Safe for all ages
  8. Safe for individuals with disease such as: cardiovascular disease, prostate disease, hypertension, glaucoma, thyroid disease, kidney or liver disorders or diabetes
  9. Reduces flu symptoms within days
  10. Reduces duration of illness
  11. Build the immune system
  12. Remember to take at first onset of fever, chills, body aches and pains

Where is oscillococcinum manufactured?

A French homeopathic pharmaceutical company, Boiron, produces it in Lyon, France fresh each year.

What is it made from?

Just one Muscovy duck is sacrificed to obtain an extract of its heart and liver, which contain the animal's natural flu resistant antibodies to make enough remedy for everyone. Influenza originates from a fowl virus. Maybe I should write a 'foul' virus.

However, since it is a 'homeopathic' remedy it goes through a dilution and succussion process that only retains the energetic characteristics of the original substance [fowl organ], which is placed upon a tiny sugar tablet. Through this process any original toxin or poison is nullified and it becomes a healing agent, based upon the fundamental principle of "likes cures likes."

If you think about it, we know that grandma's homemade 'chicken soup' with it's own natural penicillin properties helps improve our colds. Those lovely poultry come in handy for soothing upper respiratory illness, especially when we taste the warmed, salty broth that opens our sinuses and comforts our soul.

Popularity Increases

Boiron reports that sales have grown about 20 percent a year during the past few years, reaching about $200 million in 1995. You can find oscillo in grocery, pharmacy and health food stores around the world, in addition to all online stores.

Influenzinum Homeopathic Remedy

Influenzinum can be given as pro-active treatment, the same as oscillococcinum.

It is just as safe, effective, and gentle with no side effects.

If you already have flu symptoms, it is best to take the oscillococcinum and to review the unique symptoms of the person so you can select a specific homeopathic remedy that matches the way the person's vital force deals with the illness.

Using common sense and basic care:

  • 2000 units Vitamin D supplement ~ see Mercola Video Below
  • Drink plenty of fluids to help loosen mucus, soothe your sore throat, and replace fluids lost because fever causes dehydration.
  • Do not drink alcohol, it will dry the tissues in your throat
  • Drink plenty of Vitamin C drinks, like orange juice if it doesn't irritate your stomach [ some say 1000 gm]
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Use sponge bath for fever
  • Oreganol tincture drops in water or directly under tongue helps open sinus
  • Stop smoking
  • Drink ginger tea for upset stomach and nausea
  • Chicken soup! with ginger, garlic, parsley astragalus root
  • Salt water gargle - 1/4 teaspoon per 8 ounces water
  • Zinc echinacea lozengers
  • Vitamin E oil, olive oil or flaxseed oil applied to chapped lips

Another product that contains Influenzinum, Baccilinum, plus two flu remedies Nux vomica and Gelsemium all in one is called BaniFlu [ see NativeRemedies company ]

A liquid formulation called L52 contains 10 homeopathic ingredients: Eupatorium perf., Aconite, Bryonia, Amica, Gelsemium, China, Belladonna, Drosera, Polygala and Eucalyptus .


Limit Cold Medications to Children

A recent FDA recommendation no longer recommends giving over-the-counter cold and cough medication to children under the age of six.

There is concern over the safety and effectiveness of antihistamines, decongestants, anti-tussins and expectorants because these drugs have only been tested on adults.

There have been a number of side effects and deaths attributed to the use of these medications.

There are natural alternatives, in addition to riding out the illness.

  • Moisturizing the air with a cool steam vaporizer
  • Use saline nose drops or spray for a runny stuffy nose
  • Using a rubber nose bulb for infant or netti pot to clear congestion
  • Grandma's chicken soup
  • Use herbal teas [see list below]

 

Whoopee! This is your fortune today. Sugar-free.
Whoopee! This is your fortune today. Sugar-free.

Build Up Immunity Over a Lifetime

There are over 200 viruses that irritate your throat and sinuses causing coughs and colds symptoms. Once you catch a cold from a specific virus, you gain immunity to it by producing antibodies. However, that doesn't mean that you become immune to another of the viruses that can cause a cold. This is why you can get many colds during your lifetime.

What people want to know about oscillo

A Safe for flu during pregnancy and for kids or people with diabetes.

People simply don't know how to spell or say the name of this medicine oscillococcinum and they want to know if it is safe to take during pregnancy and for kids.

And since it is energy medicine there are not interactions with other medications including people taking oscillo and alcohol. Probably people have old fashioned remedies that put milk with alcohol or other mixtures to keep people warm during a chill. It is not recommended to be drinking.

Many people want to know exactly how do you take it?

There are instructions on the container, but homeopaths provide individualized directions for dosage.

Whether you call it a homeopathic medicine or a homeoeopathic flu remedy, when people search homeopathic remedies for flu there are so many ways people spell it when they don't know how including: oscillococcinum, occillococcinum, oscillococinum, oscillo for short

Homoeopathic Oscillococcinum does not prevent influenza but might shorten the length of the illness

The Cochrane Collaboration

Influenza (the flu) is a highly infectious respiratory disease caused by viruses. Other than treatments for complications (such as pneumonia) conventional medical treatment is bed rest. Homeopathy is a system based on 'curing like with like', often using highly diluted substances. Oscillococcinum is a homoeopathic preparation manufactured from wild duck heart and liver (common sources of influenza). It is claimed that Oscillococcinum (or similar homeopathic medicines) can be taken either regularly over the winter months to prevent influenza or as a treatment. Trials do not show that homoeopathic Oscillococcinum can prevent influenza. However, taking homoeopathic Oscillococcinum once you have influenza might shorten the illness, but more research is needed.

From Study of the Month at Homeonet

Unfortunately, some MDs have a mocking point of view and say that this remedy does not have any effect on influenza, except that it may hydrate you like taking water. The idea that this message gets play on ABC News station is sad and one day they will eat their words.

60 Minutes 1976 Segment Reveals the Truth About Swine Flu Vaccine

Why Push the Flu Shot?

Eco Child's Play
Eco Child's Play

Dr. Mercola Says Take One Dose 2000 Units Vitamin D/KG Body Weight Instead of Flu Shot for 3 Days

70% of Doctors Do Not Get the Flu Shot !

Dr. Donald Miller, a cardiac surgeon and Professor of Surgery at the University of Washington, recommends avoiding the flu shot and taking vitamin D instead. According to Dr. Miller, “Seventy percent of doctors do not get a flu shot.”

Health officials say that every winter 36,000 people will die from it. But the National Vital Statistics Reports compiled by the CDC show that only 1,138 deaths a year occur due to influenza alone -- more than34,000 of the “36,000″ flu deaths are actually pneumonic and cardiovascular deaths.

There is also a lack of evidence that young children benefit from flu shots. In fact, a systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo. But there is also a risk of harm from the flu vaccine itself, particularly from the mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde it contains.

A randomized trial found that the incidence of influenza in infants whose mothers had a flu shot during their pregnancy was 4%. The incidence of flu in infants whose mothers did not have a flu shot was 10%. (NEJM 2008;359:) In the study, flu shots reduced the relative risk of influenza illness in infants by a seemingly impressive 63%, yet only 6 out of 100 infants actually benefited from the shot. The other 94 received no benefit – 4 got influenza anyway – and all are at risk from being harmed by the vaccine, particularly from the mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde in it. - Donald Miller, MD

  • Mercury: Two-thirds of the vaccines made for the 2008–09 flu season contain full-dose thimerosal, an organomercury compound, 49% mercury by weight. It is used to disinfect the vaccine. Each of these flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury, a mercury content of 50,000 part per billion, 250 times more than the Environmental Protection Agency’s safety limit. Mercury is a neurotoxin, with a toxicity level 1,000 times that of lead.
  • Formaldehyde, a known cancer-causing agentis used to inactivate the virus.
  • Aluminum, added to promote an antibody response,is a neurotoxin that may play a role in Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Other additives in the flu vaccine include:
    • Triton X-100 (a detergent)
    • Polysorbate 80
    • carbolic acid
    • ethylene glycol (antifreeze)
    • gelatin
    • various antibiotics such as neomycin, streptomycin, and gentamicin that can cause allergic reactions

Thanks for sharing, dear Debby.

First homeopathic I took was Aqua Nordenau, 7 years ago. I gave it to few other people, and all of them felt much, much better. Deep consciousness change and new healthy energy. Aqua Nordenau can be taken for all diseases, it gives healthy energy, heals cells, boost immunity, it is like blessing from the sky, like the best meditation. I highly recommend it. It is like golden-crystal healing light. Made from sacred water, like from Lourd.You feel just renewed after it. That is what i like with homeopatics (radionics): deep consioussness change and body healing.

Thanks for great Hub

Many regards, Love, Light, blessings...

Great article, we have to look at alternatives to over-the-counter drugs to allow our bodies to heal by themselves. Peoples bodies are different, so what works well for one person may not work the same on another, having a list is very helpful.

Hi Mike - looks like the word is getting out about the healing effects of homeopathy. Let's continue this joint effort of creating a wave of awareness so that Homeopathy is a Household Word. I refreshed the page for the present pandemic, but had originally written about oscillo for the flu season. Homeopathy is adaptable to all occassions, seasons, individuals and situations.

Your right about ossi being a good flu medication I came across some of this stuff back in 2004 and it was right on time because as you know if your body gets used to the meds that you take regularly then they stop doing what they did from the first time you take them, which is why ossi worked so good for me and still does as long as I take it when my symptoms first start.

Great Hub!!!

Amazingly, I have fought off a 'virus' the last two or three days using the Oscillococcinum, vitamin D and olive leaf. Started with a slight scratchy throat and during nighttime I realized it became horrendous! No fever, no aches, but a slight headache too. Keep taking the 'real stuff' and today is almost totally gone, with no fever, and slight sinus drainage. SUCCESS AGAIN! Thanks again for YOUR information here!

Hi Debby,

I have had the flu for 5 days now and I still feel really sick. I wasn't sure what was wrong with me the first two days. I started with a deep cough. I was scared my husband would get as sick as me so I had him go and get Oscillococcinum, he seems to be managing working OK. I'm not working, thank God.... I wouldn't of been able to go if I was. My question is.... can I take Oscillococcinum at this point? Would it do me any good. I'm keeping a temp of 100.07 and taking advil and tylenol and sudafed. They help of a little while. Thanks, Linda

Happy New Year Dear Vespa - Are you slowly going through all my Hubs? I host a weekly radio show on Thursday with Alan Phillips, attorney-at-law and we discuss every aspect of vaccinations and your rights in the US, some information may apply internationally. The 2010 swine flu was barely a blip on the screen, but the W.H.O. determined it was a world pandemic and redefined the meaning of pandemic. The regular annual influenza was more virulent than that year's H1N1 swine flu. A large number of people who got the shot, got the flu.

Secondly, I have had numerous experts in contagious infectious disease speak on my live stream video show and the radio shows discussing 'homeoprophylaxis' -- using homeopathic remedies prophylactically when a community has a high rate of disease. Please see my hub on Cuba, which stemmed the tide of nasty infection on multi-millions of inhabitants after hurricane and flooding. The facts are there for everyone to see. India's government provides homeopathy during disease outbreaks every year.

It's best to boost your immune system. Get the vitamin D and sunlight. Eat and rest well. If you have a constitutional remedy, that an help your immune system. There are many options when using homeopathy. Be well, Debby


vespawoolf profile image

vespawoolf 3 years ago from Peru, South America

That's very helpful, Debby. I noticed the Cuba hub but haven't looked at it yet. I definitely will soon. A childhood friend of mine never received any vaccinations and she has the best health--clear skin, beautiful clear eyes, never catches anything. Her strong immune system has protected her from childhood and other illnesses. How interesting that India's gov. provides homeopathy for the people!


Debby Bruck profile image

Debby Bruck 3 years ago Author

Hello my friend, Vespa. So many people now speak up and tell their personal health stories of no vaccinations in their family with resulting excellent health. People enter their information in a survey if they have unvaccinated children on the VaccineInjury website. http://www.vaccineinjury.info/vaccinations-in-gene...

India has many generations of homeopathic education, care, training, and hospitals than any other country. Homeopathy is part of the mandated medical system. Be well! Debby

Cold and flu both are found most horrible part of human health; therefore people whom are suffering from cold and flu problems are always used to preferred better health care centers or health care experts.


Friederike 2 years ago

I just had the flu and started taking oscillo on the 2nd day. The severity of my symptoms started decreasing shorty after the first dose of oscillo. Today is the 4rth day and I am much better than my family members who did not take oscillo. This is not typical as usually I am the one with the lowest immunity - hence my interest in this topic.

Debby Bruck 2 years ago Author

Dear Friederike - Your personal experience, compared with that of other family members, certainly affirms for you whether it is worth taking this homeopathy remedy whenever influenza comes to town. Glad you are feeling better. Debby
