Current Flu Guide:
March 1- 15,
by Domenick J Masiello, DO, DHt
Spring is almost here and so most
definitely is the flu. Influenza cases continue to increase. As
mentioned in the previous installment, the strain of influenza
that is causing most of the infections this year, the Brisbane
strain, was not included in the flu vaccine. Therefore, patients
who chose to get the flu shot are getting sick this season.
There is great variety of intensity of this flu among patients.
Some are experiencing a mild cold with some fatigue. Others are
flat on their backs, in bed, with a high fever. The group of
symptoms that seems to unite all these cases, no matter how
mild, are the following: a headache, usually the forehead ; pain
behind or in the eyes, especially with motion of the eyes;
aching in the muscles and/or bones.
Eupatorium 200C, one dose a day for three days should be
sufficient. For difficult cases, the dose can be increased to
twice per day.
