A homeopathic flu vaccine? Just like a conventional vaccine injects a small amount of a killed or inactivated virus into the arm, homeopathically we use a very, very, very small amount of substances to get your body to react in a similar way.
One difference, however, is that your body is used to being exposed to viruses and bacteria through the mouth, not through the arm, so the delivery route in homeopathy is more natural. Additionally, there is no arsenic or mercury preserving the vaccine, or formaldehyde, or any other toxin. Vaccines, whether homeopathic or not, are given to cause the body to develop a reaction to the substance in the vaccine; in this case, it’s a virus. Homeopathic vaccines have been used by health systems in other countries for years due to their long history and low price. A short dosing regimen of homeopathic flu medicines may be able to stimulate your body to react with strength when confronted with the seasonal flu this year.
