What To Do If You Suspect / Get The Swine Flu
What to do if you get the swine flu:
� NOTIFY YOUR DOCTOR
It is important to notify your doctor if you think you have swine flu, so that any necessary treatments can be administered and that the Center for Disease Control has records of outbreaks.
� TAKE HOMEOPATHIC OSCILLOCOCCINUM
Oscillococcinum (available at most health food stores) is the number one selling over the counter treatment for all kinds of flu. Oscillococcinum reduces the severity and duration of the flu.
� CALL YOUR HOMEOPATH
Your homeopath will recommend a homeopathic remedy for your specific case of the flu. Individualized homeopathic treatment works best because no two people are alike. Homeopathic remedies work by giving your immune system and boost and can reduce the severity and duration of your illness.
� STAY AWAY FROM WORK OR SCHOOL
There is nothing heroic about going to work when you are sick and infecting everyone else in the office or school. Especially during an outbreak, it is best to stay away from work or school and allow your body to rest. Don't send your sick child off to school as the school will become a breeding ground for an epidemic.
� DRINK LOTS OF WATER
It is easy to dehydrate when you have a fever. Drink 6-8 cups of room temperature or warm water. Add lemon, honey ginger or cayenne pepper. Avoid cold or iced water especially when you are sick.
