I'm a healer practitioner and Biochemic therapist of 25 years. Experience in the New Era remedies means I no longer need to refer to the book below, which is almost in tatters after so many years use. If you still have symptoms of flu - high temperature alternating between sweaty and shivery; throbbing headache; aching joints; nausea and possible diarrhoea, then stay in bed, keep warm, drink plenty of fluids and ask someone to go to your nearest herbal of health store for you or, if you live in UK, go to Holland & Barratt and buy two very natural and safe remedies, (ignore the word 'salt' that appears in the title and which is most misleading, as they are not sodium and do not affect blood pressure). The following remedies are minerals that are already in our bodies but when we are ill or stressed we need more of them: Dr Schuessler's New Era Biochemic Salts - No. 11, Nat Sulph, and No. 4, Ferr Phos. They cost £4.50 a pot each of 450 tiny soft tablets that dissolve on the tongue, under the tongue or with a little water. They are safe for babies and animals. The remedies need to be alternated every 30 minutes throughout the first day of the virus and through the second day if necessary, although you should begin to feel a little better within 24 hours. Start with No. 11 Nat Sulph, 4 tabs dissolved on the tongue or with a little water. Nat Sulph begins immediately to start removing toxins of the the virus from the body and regulates the quantity of water in the tissues, blood and fluids, as well as keeping bile at it's normal consistency, therefore treating the functional disturbances of the liver and pancreas. It is an excellent remedy to treat influenza and also the winter vomiting and sickness bug, Norivirus. 30 minutes later take No. 4, Ferr Phos, for the feverishness, sweating and shivering, for the inflammation of the digestive tract and the bowels and also for the aching joints and muscles. It reduces the soreness, swelling and pain and also helps with the headache. It will reduce a rapid pulse and palpitations as well as oxygenating the blood. You will need to alternate these two remedies every 30 minutes for 24 hours and drink plenty of water. Most chemists, including Boots have the Combination New Era remedies for cold and flu, if you prefer to try those but they are not as effective in bringing the virus under control.
