Homeopathic treatment of the flu known as influenza
Part One – Medical Holocaust
by John R. Benneth
The worldwide flu pandemic of 1918 was the greatest medical holocaust of all time. It was stunning in its swiftness and mortality rates. Between March 1918 and June 1920, it infected as many as one out of three individuals and killed up to 100 million people, six percent of the world’s then 1.5 billion population, most of them young adults. It wiped out entire villages, even in the remotest corners of the globe, with the exception of quarantined islands. [1, 2.]
It was the supreme test of medicine, it was horrifying and it was breathtakingly swift. You could wake up feeling fine for breakfast, be ill by lunch, a bloody prostrate mess by suppertime, blue by bed time and dead and your corpse blackened by nightfall. There were even reports of people suddenly dropping dead. Standing alive one moment, deceased and prostrate the next.
As always, all traditional oppositional medicine could do was make it worse, terminally worse. In the worst cases, most notably those that had been treated with aspirin, the corpse would quickly turn black. The autopsy would show that internal organs had begun to liquefy. Victims would drown in their own blood. The blood turned black because of a lack of oxygen brought on by hemorrhaging in the lungs. Almost half of all influenza victims suffered from sudden nosebleeds and bloody sputum, sometimes spurting bright red fountains a foot from the bed, drenching the sheets and staff dark purple. Some would lose as much as a pint of blood at a time.
There was only one refuge from the plague of influenza, “la grippe.”
It was homeopathy.
To the uninitiated, homeopathy is often laughed at as being nothing more than the use of placebos, non-molecular substances unable to have effects beyond coincidence and imagination. And perhaps for fear of ridicule, officials are not presently including it as a backup to flu shots.. But the historic record shows that during the 1918 flu pandemic, the most devastating plague to ever hit mankind, numerous medical doctors said homeopathic remedies were the only things that consistently kept their patients alive.
At the time of the 1918 H1N1 flu epidemic, medical doctors who ignored the use of homeopathic medicines were losing up to 30% of their patients, while MD’s who administered homeopathic remedies such as Gelsemium and Bryonia had a mortality rate of 0% to 4%.[4,5,6,7]
Thanks to the work of W.A. Dewey, MD., we have the testimonies of many of those medical doctors who made comparatively amazing use of homeopathic remedies during that devastating pandemic. [ 7 ]
Dr. E. Fisher an M.D in Chicago reported that in the New Mexico public health service Veratrum viride, Gelsemium and Bryonia provided excellent results in treating influenza. He said no cases died under homeopathic medication. 
W. A. Pearson, the Dean of Hahnemann College in Philadelphia, collected 26,795 cases of influenza treated by homeopathic physicians. They had a mortality rate of 1.05%, while the average old school was 30%. 
Aspirin made it worse. People with influenza died from taking aspirin. Dr. C.J. Loizeaux a medical doctor in Des Moines Iowa said, “German aspirin has killed more people than German bullets.” 
Dr. E. B. Finney, a medical doctor in Lincoln, Nebraska said “I knew Aspirin and the coal tar products would kill more people than the disease itself and it has so proved. One old school physician told me he had gotten wise to the fact that Aspirin was killing his patients and that he had stopped sing it and was relying on homeopathic and eclectic remedies.” 
Dr. W. H. Hanchett, a medical doctor in Omaha, Nebraska said, “Homeoapthy saved patients with influenza and pneumonia. Ill luck always followed coal tar derivatives, Aspirin especially.” 
Dr. A. H. Grimmer, a medical doctor in Chicago, Illinois reported “it is a rare thing for pneumonia to develop if a good homeopathy phsyician iscalled during the first 24 hours of an attack of influenza. An appalling death rate comes from the baneful results of large doses of Aspirin, calculates and opium prepartions.” 
Dr. T.A. McCann, a medical doctor in Dayton Ohio said, “I have treated 1,000 cases of influenza. I have no losses. Please give all credit to Homeopathy and none to the Scotch-Irish-American!.” 
D. W.H. Wilson, a medical doctor in Chicago, Illinois, said “Murphy, of Lansing, Michigan, treated 325 cases of influenza in a camp where the mortality had been 20%, while the mortality under his homeopathic treatment was less than 3%.” 
In her excellent work “The Homeopathic Treatment of Influenza” (Sandra J. Perko, Benchmark, 2005) Perko reports that homeopathic Influenzium can be used to prevent the onset of the flu:
“For at least years I have personally and successfully, used and recommended to both clients and students the following preventive protocol: One month before the expected flu season (usually about the time the news media begins advising people to get their flu shots) take one dose of Inflluenzium 30X a week for four weeks. Skip the fifth week and take one more dose the sixth week. Then take one dose a month for the entire flu season. If in spite of everything you still get the flu, (and this has happened to a few people) it will generally be a much lighter case than it would have been otherwise. If this happens, take one dose of Influenzium 30C, followed by the indicated remedy in the case.” 
This article informs you which are the key remedies for fighting the flu.
Dr S. Morrison, of Harley street, writes: ” The earliest symptoms usually are — a sudden feeling of prostration, with drowsiness, headache, and aching in the loins or limbs. These; are soon followed by catarrhal symptoms or sharper rheumatoid pains, and fever temperature. As, common mediciues, readily obtained , by post from any , homeopathic chemist, the following were of great service .—For the incipient stage, two or three pills of aconite 3x every half hour or hour, till the catarrhal symptom of nasal discharge commences. Then two or three pilules of arsenicum 3x every hour or two, according to the severity. When the rheumatoid pains are severe two or three tablets of Mercuria Sol. 3x every two hour. For congestion cf the lungs, two or three pilules of phosphorus 3rd. cent, every two hours. 
Perko lists over 80 homeopathic remedies used in the treatment of influenza, what to do once you got it. Of those she lists eight as being the chief remedies used in fighting the flu: Arsenicum album, Baptisia tinctoria, Bryonia alba, Eupatporium petrolatum, Gelsemium sempervirens, Influenzium, Phosphorus and Rhus Toxicodendron. 
Perko describes Gelsemium (as noted by the New York homeopathic medical doctors of the 1890 at the end of this article) to be the remedy that presents a total picture which is more typical of influenza than any other homeopathic remedy. 
This information should be a welcome relief to anyone who doesn’t have an investment or career in jabbing the unsuspecting with poisoned needles.
It’s good to know that you can get cheap, life-saving medicine at the local drugstore that can be taken orally, if you need it.
And some people are seeking alternative treatments to the swine flu, just in case the swine flu becomes resistant to treatments like Tamiflu, or in the event of dangerous side effects to injected vaccines, such as Guillain Barre, or Reyes syndrome from the use of aspirin for the flu. 
According to Health News Track, Dr. Jacob Mirman of the Homeopathic Medical Clinic in Minneapolis says they are offering a flu kit that is growing in demand. “That’s a hundred bucks from the Washington Homeopathic Pharmacy. They are right now inundated with requests, so they say it’s one or two weeks to get it,” he said. [ 13]
But it appears to be infuriating doctors who are peddling less effective but immensely more profitable means of treating the H1N1 influenza. It must drive them into a rage when they see their prospective victims running to the neighborhood pharmacy to pick up a bottle of sugar pellets for a few rupees.
