Posted Sep 22 2010 8:06pm 1 Comment
This information was shared with me by Willow Tipton, DIHom, local homeopath, regarding homeopathic pertussis & flu prevention. If you're looking for alternatives to getting immunized with a shot, this is some very helpful advice. I've personally had great success with using homeopathic remedies for illnesses & symptoms with my family. Hope you find it helpful too!

Remedy Highlights - Respiratory Help

Pertussis, also known as whooping cough has been making the news more frequently
as there has been outbreaks in schools. Interestingly, it's been affecting
those who have been vaccinated and not. Homeopathy has been hugely successful
in helping pertussis as well as similar difficult respiratory coughs.

This highly contagious bacterial disease derives its name from the "whoop" sound
made from the inspiration of air after a cough. Pertussis in infants or young
children is characterized initially by mild respiratory infection symptoms such
as mild coughing, sneezing, or runny nose. After one to two weeks, the coughing
develops into uncontrollable fits, each with five to ten forceful coughs,
followed by a high-pitched "whoop" sound as the patient struggles to breathe in
afterwards. Coughing fits are sometimes followed by vomiting. Fits can occur on
their own or can be triggered by yawning, stretching, laughing, eating or
yelling; they usually occur in groups, with multiple episodes every hour around
the clock. The bummer about these coughs, is they seem to linger, but with
homeopathic help, can clear much faster!

The following homeopathy remedies prove useful in cases of pertussis and
difficult coughs. As our advanced students know, you simply match your symptoms
to the remedy. When your symptoms change, change remedies.

DroseraSpasmodic, dry irritative cough, like whooping-cough, each cough following each
other very rapidly; can scarcely breathe; chokes. Cough very deep and hoarse;
worse after midnight; yellow expectoration, with bleeding from nose and mouth;
retching. Sensation as if crumbs were in the throat, of feather in larynx.
Harassing and titillating cough in children-not at all through the day, but
commences as soon as the head touches the pillow at night.

Antimonium TartGreat rattling of mucus, but very little is expectorated. Velvety feeling in
chest. Burning sensation in chest, which ascends to throat. Rapid, short,
difficult breathing; seems as if he would suffocate; must sit up. Coughing and
gaping consecutively. Bronchial tubes overloaded with mucus. Cough excited by
eating, with pain in chest and larynx. Cough and better lying on right side.

Arsenicum albumUnable to lie down; fears suffocation. Air-passages constricted. Burning in
chest. Suffocative catarrh. Cough worse after midnight; worse lying on back.
Expectoration scanty, frothy. Wheezing respiration. Cough dry, as from sulphur
fumes; after drinking. Restless & anxious, better warm drinks.

Hepar SulphCough troublesome when walking. Dry, hoarse cough. Cough excited whenever any
part of the body gets cold or uncovered, or from eating anything cold. Croup
with loose, rattling cough; worse in morning. Choking cough. Rattling, croaking
cough; suffocative attacks; has to rise up and bend head backwards. Anxious,
wheezing, moist breathing, asthma worse in dry cold air; better in damp.

IpecacConstant constriction in chest. Difficult shortness of breathing. Continued
sneezing; coryza; wheezing cough. Cough incessant and violent, with every
breath, to the point of vomiting. Chest seems full of phlegm, but does not yield
to coughing. Bubbling, rattleing sounds from chest. Suffocative cough; child
becomes stiff, and blue in the face. Whooping-cough. Croup.

PhosphorusCough from tickling in throat; worse, cold air, reading, laughing, talking, from
going from warm room into cold air. Sweetish taste while coughing. Hard, dry,
tight, racking cough. Congestion of lungs. Burning pains, heat and oppression of
chest. Tightness across chest; great weight on chest. Whole body trembles, with
cough. Pain in throat on coughing.

Rumex CrispusTickling in throat-pit causes cough. Copious mucous discharge from nose and
trachea. Dry, teasing cough, preventing sleep. Aggravated by pressure, talking,
and especially by inspiring cool air and at night. Thin, watery, frothy
expectoration by the mouthful: later, stringy and tough. Rawness of larynx and
trachea. Lump in throat.

SpongiaDryness of all air passages. Hoarseness; larynx dry, burns, constricted. Cough,
dry, barking, croupy; larynx sensitive to touch. Croup; worse, during
inspiration and before midnight. Respiration short, panting, difficult; feeling
of a plug in larynx. Cough abates after eating or drinking, especially warm
drinks. Chest congestion, with wheezing, asthmatic cough, worse cold air, with
profuse expectoration and suffocation; worse, lying with head low and in hot
room. Oppression and heat of chest, with sudden weakness.

Pedia Pro by Apex EnergeticsA potentized combination of remedies specific for Pertussis, Diptheria and
Tetanus. Some of the ingredients are: Pertussinum, Drosera, Phosphorus and
few more helpful ingredients like Colostrum. Comes in a convenient spray
bottle.

*Pedia Pro is a prescription remedy, however you can order it thru a
practitioner, or thru Willow's Patient Number by calling Apex Energetics
800-736-4381 and tell them you're ordering under patient number P2502 (Willow
Tipton) with a credit card. They will ship directly to you.

If you are looking for just the pertussis nosode homeopathic remedy, you can find it from www.homeopthyovernight.com or from Celletech.com - however, for my patients, I'm recommending PediaPro by Apex which has pertussinum as well as other helpful cough and lung support remedies as well as immune support. It comes in a spray and is easy to administer - 2 sprays once a day for prophylaxis - 2 times a day
if exposed and 3 times a day if symptomatic. It is considered a prescription, so
to order call 800-736-4381 and order under patient number P2502 and get
PediaPro. They ship fast, usually getting it within a day. Let me know if you
have any questions. 1 bottle goes a long way & should be enough for a family of 4. I recommend giving to people of all ages with the same dosage recommendations except I do not recommend it for breastfeeding infants.

Here is information about homeopathic flu prevention & treatmentsCalm Down & Stay Relaxed!

While the media creates a scared frenzy regarding pandemics, you can feel
fortunate that you know about homeopathy. We personally know of one story of a
man who was given homeopathics for severe flu symptoms. By the time his blood
work confirmed that he did in fact have Swine Influenza, the remedies had worked
and he was symptom free. If you should become sick, using your notebooks from
Homeopathy Level 1 & 2 classes, just match your symptoms in choosing the remedy
- as you've already been taught to do.

You can also make the following Bach Flower Essence combination to increase your
emotional sense of well being: Aspen, Cherry Plum, Crab Apple, Mimulus, Star of
Bethlehem and White Chestnut.

Remedy Hightlights - Flu Help

Swine Influenza is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza
virus that regularly causes outbreaks of influenza in pigs. The 2009 flu
outbreak in humans is due to a new strain of influenza A virus subtypre H1N1
that derives in part from human influenza, avian influenza, and two separate
strains of swine influenza. It passes with apparent ease from human to human,
an ability attributed to an as-yet unidentified mutation. As with other flu
like illnesses, Swine influenza is spread as follows: coughing, sneezing,
kissing, touching infected objects, touching nose, mouth and/or eyes with
infected hands. Swine flu does not spread by eating pork. The strain in most
cases causes only mild symptoms and the infected person makes a full recovery
without requiring medical attention and without the use of antiviral medicines -
and is greatly aided by homeopathic remedies!!

The symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to symptoms of regular human
influenza and include fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some also
report runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

The following homeopathy remedies prove useful in cases of influenza regardless
of what strain it is. As our advanced students know, you simply match your
symptoms to the remedy. When your symptoms change, change remedies.

AconiteSudden onset of symptoms. Fever and chills, thirsty. Restless and fearful.

Arsenicum albumChilly and anxious, restless, yet exhuasted. Nausea with diarrhea and burning
pains. Coughing, wheezing, runny nose and burning symptoms. Thirsty for warm
drinks.

BelladonnaRed, hot & dry. Fever, sore throat, headache, dry cough and inflammations.

BryoniaAches and pains. Feels worse from any motion. Emotionally grumpy and
irritable. Bad headache and dry cough that hurts the head and stomach. Very
thirsty.

GelsemiumDull, dizzy, body aches, weak and fatigue. Chills up and down the back.

IpecacNausea, vomiting with clean tongue. Dry spasmodic cough, often causing gagging.

PhosphorusSymptoms that settles in the chest. Hoarseness and coughing, thirsty for cold
drinks. Nervousness that's better with company and consolation.

Veratrum albumNausea, possible diarrhea and vomitting. Low vitality, dry constricted cough.
Low thirst.

OscillococcinumAs soon as you start feeling run-down or have other flu-like symptoms, take
Oscillococcinum. Oscillo® is regulated as a drug by the FDA and is supported by
published clinical studies as well as more than 65 years of use throughout the
world.

Clinical studies show that Oscillo reduces the severity and duration of flu
symptoms.


InfluenzinumTo reduce and prevent symptoms of the flu. Influenzinum is the updated each
year based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization. It contains
a dilution of the same three viral strains as the conventional Flu Vaccine.

My daughter is nearly 9 months old. She is having a couple different symptons that are mild right now and may just be part of her development. Still I am keeping an eye on her in case it may develop into pertussis. She has nasal congestion, slight coughing and she's thrown up twice, both after a coughing fit. Her coughs sound like regular dry coughs, maybe with a little congestion. She's had no vaccinations and is breastfed. I just got insurance but it doesn't cover natural pathic medicine. I have to take her to a reg doctor tomorrow morning but was hoping for some natural solutions before I heard their reccomendations. Thank you for any help you can provide.
