The Flu and You
It’s that time of year again. If you haven’t already, you will soon hear about the flu and what you should do. It is entirely up to you what you choose for you or your family’s health. I’m a strong proponent in making informed decisions and I hope to arm you with additional information today. As the saying goes: “Knowledge is power” so I hope this helps to empower you.
One service I provide is called homeoprophylaxis, or HP. I am certified HP supervisor from the organization Free and Healthy Children International (FHCi). Through FHCi I’ve been helping families with HP since 2012. In light of the emphasis being placed on infectious, contagious disease this year, I thought it’d be important you knew a bit more about it.
HP seeks to educate the immune system in a call-response methodology. A specific kind of homeopathic remedy, called a nosode, is used to initiate a self-regulating healing response of the body. The response is innate and exists for every living being. In HP that healing response is to a specific pathogen that occurs in the natural environment, such as influenza.
There have been numerous studies conducted on HP. Overall, HP has about a 90% efficacy rate. This is outstanding, but does not make it a panacea.
Based on my professional experience over the past 10+ years, HP is a good adjunct to constitutional homeopathic care, but is not a good replacement for it. HP remains a small part of the services I offer in my practice, yet a very important one for families looking for specific help on this one particular issue. In my opinion, HP is best used when it augments the intended outcomes from constitutional homeopathic care, which include boosting overall vitality and strengthening your body's defense mechanisms.
All the same, in light of the heightened attention being paid to the flu nowadays, I wanted you to know that HP nosodes are available. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions about them. Please note that HP nosodes are also available regarding other nefarious issues you’ve likely heard much about.
If you’re currently undergoing constitutional homeopathic care in my practice, please discuss with me on whether or not HP is right for you and/or how to proceed in light of your current treatment plan. I offer HP only to established clients so if you’re new to my practice please establish care by scheduling an "Initial Consultation." There, we can discuss HP nosodes relative to your needs and concerns, in addition to your overall constitutional care. If you’d like to enroll exclusively in a comprehensive, multi-year program which provides HP nosodes in response to at least nine different infectious diseases, schedule a "Homeoprophylaxis Program" session instead.
