Respiratory illnesses affect the majority of people some time in their lives. These conditions can be as common as colds, flu and strep throat or, less commonly, bronchitis, asthma or pneumonia.
Conventional treatment is usually in the form of antibiotics or steroids. These medicines are very strong and may have detrimental side effects. They weaken the body and do not change your susceptibility to getting these ailments over and over again. By taking a homeopathic remedy, the following symptoms of the illness can be alleviated:
- sore throat
- chest pain
Minor symptoms of a cold or flu do not always need to be treated homeopathically. It can be a sign that you need to rest and let your body rejuvenate. Adjunctive measures to gain comfort are:
- using steam therapy
- increasing fluid intake
- getting plenty of sleep
