According to CDC the best way to protect against the flu is to get vaccinated every year as soon as the vaccine hits the market. We will not argue with this. The flu vaccine business is worth about $1.6 billion a year. The effectiveness of the flu vaccine is published by the CDC and it can be viewed here: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/professionals/vaccination/e...
Last year the vaccine had a 23% effectiveness, The best results since the studies began were recorded during the flu season 2010-2011 at 60%. These are not very impressive numbers.
If you choose to be vaccinated
If you choose to have a standard (allopathic) flu shot, we can recommend some homeopathic remedies that will avoid the side effect of vaccination. First, since the immune system is down after vaccination, take Vitamin C, 1 tablet per day, one week before and one week after vaccination. Second, take homeopathic remedy Silicea 30C, one dose per day, one week before vaccination and Homeopathic remedy Thuya 30X, one dose ( 4 - 5 pellets) immediately after the shot.
If you choose to NOT be vaccinated
If you choose not to get a vaccine you may want to use a number of natural remedies that will prevent or reduce the flu symptoms. Influenzinum 9C and Gemmotherapy Black Currant (Ribes Nigrum) and Briar Rose (Rosa Canina) will do the job. Homeopathic remedies have no side effects and are safe for the entire family.
Homeopathic remedy Influenzinum 9C is updated each year based on the flu strains most likely to be around for the upcoming flu season, predicted by WHO (World Health Organization) and is manufactured by Pasteur Institute in France. To prevent flu dissolve one dose of Influenzinum 9C (3-5 pellets) under the tongue per week for 4 weeks then wait for three weeks and take one more dose. You can repeat one dose of Influenzinum every month until March or April. In case of flu dissolve 5 pellets in the mouth 3 times a day until relieved. Homeopathic remedies are best taken between meals, at least half an hour after eating.
Gemmotherapy Black Currant is one of the most important natural anti-inflammatory remedy and it is very effective in all stages of inflammation. When we use Black Currant we increase the resistance to fatigue and colds. Ribes Nigrum potentializes the anti-inflammatory action of Briar Rose and will strengthens the immune system. These two gemmotherapy are recommended for children when the school year begins and should be repeated the following year as a prevention. The recommended dose is Briar Rose, 40 drops, in the morning and Black Currant, 40 drops, in the evening for two months.
Supplement with 1/2 teaspoon twice daily of trace minerals.

High fever: Aconitum 9c.
Sudden icy coldness: Camphora 5C
