Homeopathy has many remedies that can treat the symptoms of the flu. Homeopathy has a long history of treating the flu, including its use during the flu epidemic of 1918, when patients who used homeopathy showed nearly a 100% survival rate. Homeopathic remedies such as Gelsemium, Eupatorium, Bryonia, Baptisia, and Arsenicum, can be used to reduce the symptoms of the flu, and to speed recovery. Homeopathic remedies are available over-the-counter in health food stores and better food stores.
