Homeopathic medicines empower everyone from moms and busy professionals to healthcare practitioners to relieve acute conditions like coughs, colds and flu. In this first of four episodes of “Tackling the Flu, Naturally,” learn how homeopathy can be useful for a healthy life.
Gary Kracoff, NMD, R.Ph., explains why becoming a parent was the turning point for him to explore more naturally-working solutions. And even though the parents of her little patients aren’t against antihistamines, decongestants, etc., Lauren Feder, MD, describes why they value homeopathic medicines as a first line defense for self-treatable conditions. Dr. Feder shares how she uses the homeopathic preparation of the red onion to relieve runny noses since chopping a red onion can cause a nose to run.
Practical basics for you and your family are provided in this 12-minute podcast, including the principle and benefits, what types of conditions can and cannot be relieved by homeopathy, and how the medicines are best used at the onset of symptoms. Learn about common misconceptions, like how these over-the-counter drugs are produced and regulated differently than supplements. The episode wraps up with a look at homeopathy’s roots dating back to 1790 in Germany.
