NATURAL REMEDIES TO TREAT COLDS AND FLU.

 

Introduction:

 Springtime is the time for colds and flu all over the world. There is a very famous saying about cold and I quote -“spring is not the best of seasons. Cold and flu are two good reasons; wind and rain and other sorrow, warm today and cold tomorrow. Whoever said spring was romantic?  The word that best applies is frantic!”-Unquote.

 The common cold and flu are essentially viral diseases and they defy all forms of orthodox treatment. In the old days it was taught to medical students that the common cold could be cured with medicines in one week and without medicines in seven days. This statement only reflects the frustration physicians and patients face while dealing with these debilitating and irritating diseases.
 Some non-pharmacological ways of dealing with cold and flu:
  • Salt-water rinsing of the nostrils to avoid nasal congestion,
  • Covering up to stay warm and complete rest in bed.
  • Salt water gargling can moisten a sore throat and bring some relief. Gargling with tea is also helpful. Some people gargle with honey mixed with raspberry leaves and lemon juice.
  • Drinking plenty of warm liquids can help relieve nasal congestion, prevent dehydration, and soothe the uncomfortably inflamed nasal membranes
  • Taking a piping hot shower can moisturize the nasal passages and relax the aching body in cold and flu..

Eating certain foods that are rich in Vitamin A & C
  • Bananas
  • Bell Peppers.
  • Blueberries lower fevers and help with the aches and pains
  • Carrots
  • Chilli Peppers can open sinuses.
  • Cranberries
  • Mustard & Horseradish helps break up mucus in air passages.
  • Onion: Has phytochemicals that help in clearing infections.
  • Rice useful in influenza with diarrhoea.
  • Tea: Black and green tea act like natural antibiotics
  • Lemon and honey juice boost the immune system
  • Cayenne pepper helps keep you warm if you have a fever
  • Chamomile tea: gives good sleep and relaxation.
  • Peppermint tea is useful when sinuses are blocked.
  • Ginger is useful for flu with stomach problems
  • Thyme is a good herb in coughs.
  •  Oregano: is good for colds and coughs.
  •  Sage is an excellent herb for sore throats and fevers.
  •  Cinnamon is an immune booster.

Conclusion:

Even though natural methods are useful and gentle, care should be taken while prescribing these medicines in the elderly and the very young.  In both these cases a common cold can turn into a dangerous chest infection and if unchecked can lead to extreme morbidity and even death.

Some useful Homeopathic remedies – Part 151.

PYROGENIUM.

This remedy is prepared from lean beef, which is allowed to stand in the sun for two weeks and later this remedy is potentized. Later Dr. Swan potentized septic pus and found that this remedy was equally efficacious.

It is a great remedy for septic states, where the fever is associated with intense restlessness.

It is useful in Typhoid fever, Ptomaine poisoning, and Diphtheria, dissecting wounds, gas gangrene and chronic malaria.  All discharges are horribly offensive.

It is useful whenever there is violent pain and burning in abscesses, in Influenza, and in typhoid states.

It is a useful remedy in subjects, whose minds are full of anxiety and insane notions and full of loquacity.

It is useful whenever subjects suffer from a bursting headache with restlessness.

It is useful in subjects, who have clean dry tongue, dry throat, nausea and vomiting, when the taste is fetid and the breath offensive.

It is useful whenever subject have coffee ground vomiting.

It is useful in subjects who have intolerable tenesmus of both the bladder and the rectum.

It suits subjects who have diarrhea, which are horribly offensive, brown blackish and whenever the stools are black.

It is useful in heart symptoms – when there is palpitation with a sensation as if the heart were full and the pulse is out of proportion to the fever and the when the subject is acutely conscious of the heart beat.

It suits female subjects who have puerperal peritonitis or septicemia following abortion. It also suits females who have fever at each menstrual period.  This remedy is useful in cases where the dead fetus is retained inside womb for days, and becomes black and there is a vaginal discharge, which is offensive and is associated with a retained placenta.

This remedy is useful in septic fevers with latent pyogenic conditions, with great heat and profuse hot sweat, but sweating does not cause a fall of the temperature.

This remedy suits subjects who have aching in all bones and limbs and the bed feels hard and the subject feels a great sense of debility in the morning, with soreness better by motion.

This remedy suits subjects who seem to be in a semi-sleepy state and dream all night.  It also suits subjects who get relief from movement.

TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…

 In post-operative cases, where the patient becomes overwhelmed with sepsis and sinks into typhoid like state, jeopardizing the success of the operation, which was carefully planned and skillfully executed.  PYROGENIUM if exhibited at the proper time instead of deluging the sufferer with narcotics will shield the operator from many days of anxiety both as to his patient’s welfare and his reputation.

Dr. F. Aguilar, M.D.

Suppuration after operation: Homeopathic suppuration remedies plus PYROGEN.

Dr. George Burford.

In my hands, PYROGEN cured septic Influenza, puerperal pyelitis and post-operative pyrexia and it will continue to cure other septic diseases showing the typical symptoms.

Dr. Dorothy Shepherd.

When a blanket of chemotherapy is apparently indicated, try PYROGEN in 200th potency a few doses pre and post-operatively and reserve chemotherapy to be used later if really required, unless there is overwhelming infection.

Dr. Foubister, M.B., Ch.B., D.C.H.

PYROGEN for septic wounds that rapidly involves the heart and other vital centers of the body.

Dr. A. H. Grimmer, M.D.

I have found PYROGEN invaluable in fevers of septic origin, all forms when BAPTISIA, ECHINACEA, RHUS TOX or the best-selected remedy fails to relieve or permanently improve, study PYROGEN.

Dr. H C Allen, M.D.

PYROGEN has a great reputation in the USA for its power of expelling the retained placenta and one has seen it with cows also.

Dr. Tyler, M.D.

American doctors find one of their most dramatic uses for PYROGEN in sepsis after delivery with offensive discharges and where part of the placenta has been retained. They say that they give PYROGEN and it ‘pops out’.

Dr. Tyler, M.D.

Pelvic cellulites in women: Pain in the affected part so severe at times as not permit patient to stand, sit or remain lying.  Here, PYROGENIUM proves itself superior to MORPHINE, every time, relieving the pain permanently as a rule.

Dr. F. Aguillar, M.D.

I prescribe PYROGEN very often especially for Influenza. It works wonderfully.  It works wonderfully. It cures Influenza, but nevertheless the constitution remains the same. Afterwards I must prescribe something else.

Dr. Bellokossy, M.D.

Fever: during convalescence after confinement; after curettage of the uterus etc: PYROGEN 30 or 200 every 3 to 4 hours and cease directly the temperature falls.

Dr. G. Budford.

It is extremely useful to employ PYROGEN especially in cases where there is insufficient reaction to or insufficient improvement.  If for instance, patient suffering from tuberculosis, carcinoma etc., improve in a sluggish manner or do not improve at all, it wound seem wise to give a few doses of PYROGEN, a dose once a week- on the assumption of septic focus which is obscure.

Ellis Barker.

Those cases that simulate Typhoid fever, and the positive diagnosis is only established after the Widal reaction has decided one way or the other, respond well to PYROGEN.

Dr. F. Aguilar, M.D.

PYROGEN is sometimes useful when there is a history of septicemia, severe after-effects of dental extraction, or ill health commencing after an abortion in the absence of any obvious pelvic pathology.

Dr. Foubister, M.B., Ch.B., D.C.H.

PYROGEN is indicated in:

  1. Threatening cardiac failure in zymotic or septic fevers.
  2. Fever at each menstrual period, consequent upon latent pelvic inflammation.
  3. Rapid decubitis of septic origin.

 

QUANTUM TOUCH HEALING.

 

Introduction:

Quantum-Touch is a method of natural healing that works with the Life Force Energy (LFE) of the body to promote wellness. Life Force Energy, also known as “chi” in Chinese and “prana” in Sanskrit, is the flow of energy that sustains all living beings. Quantum-Touch teaches us how to focus, amplify, and direct this energy, for a wide range of benefits.

Quantum-Touch is an effective method for reducing back pain , realigning structure, balancing organs, glands and systems, reducing muscle aches, healing injuries, healing burns, and so much more.

How does it work?

Healing is fascinating and it is poorly understood. It must be realized that all healing is self healing. The body is an extraordinary instrument that has an extraordinary intelligence and ability to heal itself. Given the right energetic, emotional, nutritional, and spiritual environments, the natural state of the body is perfect health. Although all healing is self healing, people can be assisted to heal with their own healing process.

Quantum-Touch uses life-force energy (known as “chi” in Chinese and “prana” in Sanskrit) to facilitate healing. The Quantum-Touch techniques teach us how to focus and amplify life-force energy by combining various breathing and body awareness exercises.

Using the Quantum-Touch techniques, we can create a high frequency of life-force energy. If we place this field of high energy around an area of pain, stress, inflammation, or disease, the body can heal itself.

Benefits of Quantum Healing:

This modality has been found to be useful in several conditions such as:

  • Acceleration of the Healing Process.
  • Transformation of Structure – Multiple Sclerosis, Scoliosis, Scurvy.
  • Movement of Bones into Correct Alignment.
  • Inflammation due to injury is rapidly reduced.
  • Emotional and psychological conditions respond well to Quantum-Touch.
  • Induction of sleep or deep meditation.
  • Distant Healing.

Conclusion:

Quantum-Touch works with the premise that the body, given the right conditions, knows how to heal itself.  Quantum-Touch appears to be more effective when someone else is working on you, rather than doing energy healing on yourself.  Quantum-Touch addresses the root cause of disease and creates the space for true healing to occur.
