Flues are divided into two basic categories: head flues and stomach flues. Head flues result in a sore throat, fever, headache, body aches, and dizziness. Stomach flues result in nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. From a Western perspective, these are caused by different viruses. Influenza most commonly causes the head flu and rotavirus and norovirus are most often associated with the stomach variety. Treatment involves rehydration, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories to reduce fever, and anti-virals if necessary. Western physicians also stress the importance of vaccination as a preventative method.
Oriental Medical Perspective
Head flues are most commonly caused by Wind Heat pathogens and stomach flues are often caused by Wind Damp Heat pathogenic infections that have invaded through the protective energy known as the Wei Qi. To heal from these infections, the pathogen has to be purged exactly where it is actively invading and the chaotic elements of its energy must be cleared from the energy system.
Flu Qi Infusion
This Infusion attacks pathogenic factors where they are penetrating the energy structures of the body, heals the energy of the tissues where the pathogen has colonized and invaded, and rectifies the energy of the body where the pathogenic Qi has made it imbalanced.
When To Use
Apply hourly for 12 hours or until the flu symptoms have completely resolved. Quickest impacts are seen when used at the onset of symptoms. This remedy will not reduce a fever directly and should not be expected to do so.
