Swine flu

The BHA follows the advice of the Faculty of Homeopathy on swine flu:

The Faculty of Homeopathy supports the Department of Health in its approach to a possible pandemic of swine influenza A(H1N1).

(http://www.nhs.uk/AlertsEmergencies/Pages/Pandemicflualert.aspx)

Key in this approach is to prevent the spread of infection by

  • Ensuring you wash your hands regularly with soap and water
  • Regularly cleaning surfaces, including door handles, to remove contamination
  • Covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneezing
  • Placing used tissues in a bin as soon as possible.
  • If you fear you may have swine flu contact your GP or NHS Direct immediately.

Homeopathy has a place in assisting the body to heal and lessen the symptoms.
