   Nobody, right? Or do you? If you think about it, colds tend to occur at specific times of the year – Winter and Spring – and it’s possible that a cold is your body’s way of adjusting to the new season. So maybe the best thing to do when you get a cold is to take a couple of days off work and look after yourself. Get plenty of rest and sleep, drink plenty of water and orange juice (packed full of vitamin C) and maybe even treat yourself to a warming hot toddy (recipe coming in tomorrow’s blog). This will give your body the best possible chance to do what it needs to prepare itself for the oncoming season.

Homeopathy can help with cold and flu symptoms, in fact there are over thirty different medicines that can help with flu and many more that may help with a cold.  Here are the details of the three most commonly used homeopathic cold and flu medicines – if your symptoms fit, give the medicine a try.  If none of these seem to fit your symptoms, take a look here where there are many more to choose from.

Aconite: You really want to keep this one in your medicine cupboard because it is a great remedy for nipping a cold or flu in the bud when the symptoms have come on quickly. Take it as soon as you notice the first symptoms – which is likely to be after you have been out in the cold. You will have lots of sneezing with pain at the root of your nose.  Your mucous membranes will be dry, you may have lots of shivering, feel quite anxious and feel worse in the evening or at night.

Ferrum phos: This medicine may help when your symptoms come on gradually. You may have a sore throat and a feeling that the cold is going to affect your ears or your chest.  You may feel weak and leathargic and have a flushed face and your eyes may be red and burning.

Gelsemium: This is the most commonly used homeopathic medicine for flu – you have the common flu symptoms of feeling heavy, lethargic and dull, your limbs ache, you feel dull and you may have shivers running up and down your back.
