Influenza A(H1N1) – Swine flu

Influenza A(H1N1) – Swine flu

The Faculty of Homeopathy supports the Department of Health in its approach to the A(H1N1) flu pandemic.

Key in this approach is to prevent the spread of infection by

Ensuring you wash your hands regularly with soap and water
Regularly cleaning surfaces, including door handles, to remove contamination
Covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneezing
Placing used tissues in a bin as soon as possible.
If you fear you may have swine flu contact your GP or NHS Direct immediately.

Homeopathy has a role to play in lessening the symptoms of flu. We would refer you to our general flu advice which is available on the British Homeopathic Association’s website:
