A 2005 study of 499 children showed that children whose colds were treated with homoeopathy were more likely to feel better than children whose colds had been treated conventionally. The homeopathically-treated children also had fewer complications. Another 1994 study of 175 children showed that those given a homoeopathic remedy had less symptoms and needed fewer antibiotics than those who had been given a placebo. They also went on to need fewer adenoidectomies.

Homeopathic medicine has great potential when used in conjunction with conventional medicine. Here are ten simple remedies you can try with your patients to help stop colds and flu symptoms in their tracks.
