The most significant flu pandemic occurred in 1918-1919. The global mortality rate from this pandemic is not known, but is estimated that 2.5 - 5% of those who were infected died. With 20% of the world population suffering from the disease to some extent, a case-fatality ratio this high would mean that about 50 million to 100 million people worldwide were killed.
In 1957 the Asian flu pandemic infected some 45 million Americans and killed 70,000. In 1968 to 1969 the Hong Kong flu pandemic afflicted 50 million Americans and caused 33,000 deaths, costing approximately $3.9 billion. The scare and panic about the flu have occurred because people now know what a simple flu can lead to and are afraid of the consequences - not just to the human capital but also to the global financial health.
Homeopathy was very successful in dealing with the 1918-1919 flu pandemic. An article was published in the Journal of the American Institute for Homeopathy in May 1921 about the use of homeopathy in the flu epidemic. It was reported that 26,000 cases of the flu were treated successfully using homeopathy resulting in mortality rate of 1.05%. Meanwhile 24,000 cases were treated with conventional medicine and had a mortality rate of 28%.
Homeopathy is, and has proven to be, very effective in the treatment of the flu and other common ailments such as cough, colds, sore throats, ear infections, etc. Most people recover fully from the flu with rest and time. Homeopathic Medicine can help boost your immune system to ward of any infections, instead of using conventional antibiotics.
