A lot of different bugs with strange M.O.s (modi operandi) these days.
Every week, new patterns emerge. One week I had a handful of clients with a backache at exactly the same spot.
The other, headaches with exactly the same pattern and various accompanying symptoms such as jaw pain along the stomach meridian (focus @ST8) and in the back of the head (focal point Bl10). Isn’t it funny how we may think that something is wrong with us individually, whemn we actually are experiencing what a whole lot of others are also going through – simultaneously? We should have a forum for this, a database we fill out ourselves to compare our symptoms with others …
This winter, we’ve had it all, and all over Europe: streptococci, staphylococci, other bacteria and vira, which kept a large portion of our populations under their comforters or dragging themselves through the days. The weather has been rather clement, but the climate conditions in our bodies have not followed suit.
I am truly looking forward to Spring.
In the meantime, make sure you’ve got a good big jar of vitamin C (powder, available here in DK). My old anatomy/pharmacology teacher, Ole Købke, who is well-versed in the administration of vit C, advises 1-2g a day in normal conditions.
If you feel the flu coming up, he recommends 1g every 2 to 3 hours for a few days, until symptoms are alleviated – or until stools are loose, indicating one has had enough (unless one of the symptoms is loose stools). Of course if you take medications prescribed by your doctor, have a kidney weakness or any other medical condition that requires medical help, consult with your physician first.
And if there is no improvement after 2-3 days consult with the Doc as well.
Homeopathic medicines against the flu, which are widely used in France because of their effectiveness, are produced by laboratoires Boiron and can be ordered online from several large French pharmacies. The most famous is Oscillococcinum.
I wish you good health!
