Last time we were talking about the ways how to prevent colds and flu. If you did catch flu despite all preventive measures and got sick with annoying flu-like symptoms: fever, cough, nasal congestion, weakness, sores and pains, just remember: those are often the effects of your immune system’s titanic struggle against invading organisms. Fighting the disease via burning viruses and bacteria in a flame of fever; via cough clearing your breathing passages of mucus – is a part of the natural healing process. The question is: how to reduce the severity of flu symptoms?
We at *Astra Natural Healing know the answer.
*Astra Natural Healing recommends: homeopathic remedy number one – Engystol, a natural approach to fight viral infections
Over the past 20 years, we have been successfully using an immunostimulating homeopathic remedy Engystol, produced by the German Company “Heel”. This medicine has been scientifically proven to significantly reduce the duration and severity of symptoms during an acute viral infection (when given as a treatment) and help protect against subsequent infections (when given as prophylaxis).
Basic research has revealed the activity of Engystol against viruses, such as adenovirus Type 5, Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV 1) and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), and Human Rhino Virus (HRV).
In a clinical setting, Engystol has also been shown to shorten the time of infection and reduce antibody titers against influenza A. In addition to the above, Engystol is regulated by the FDA. Furthermore, Engystol will not cause drowsiness like some flu products.
We highly recommend that all our *Astra patients including infants, pregnant women, nursing mothers and elderly people use this remedy because:

• It may be used for both treatment and prevention of various viral infections
• It stimulates the non-specific and specific defense system ( as an immunostimulator), thereby strengthening the immune system
• It is safe for pregnant women or nursing mothers, as well as the entire family
• There are no known side effects, contraindications or interactions
• It is very well-tolerated and suitable for long-term treatment
• It can be combined with other natural or conventional immunostimulating therapies

Engystol is available for use in tablet form, and as an ampule. We prefer to use Engystol in ampules drawing its contents into a pipette and putting 2-3 drops of Engystol into each nostril three times daily.
This enables the remedy not to be destroyed or broken down by stomach acid, to reduce the swelling of nasal tissues, also to provide relief from congestion, and overall to increase its therapeutic effect. Engystol can be bought at

*Astra Natural Healing recommends: homeopathic remedy number two – Oscillococcinum, a natural approach to reduce the severity of flu symptoms

Oscillococcinum, produced by the French Company “Boiron”, homeopathic medicine, non-drowsy, no side effects, no drug interactions, works naturally with your body.
Commonly called Oscillo, is widely recommended by homeopaths and naturopaths to reduce the severity of flu symptoms, such as body aches, headache, fever, chills and fatigue.
Suggested use: preferably at the onset of symptoms (within 12 to 48 hours of the first appearance of your symptoms). It comes in packages of six, twelve, thirty vials. Take one vial every six hours.
In the next few blogs we will talk more about treating naturally other flu symptoms: fever, nasal congestion, cough, weakness, and sore throats.

Use our recommendations and stay healthy.
