A study published in the Journal ‘Homeopathy’supports the use of homeopathic medicines for prevention of influenza and acute respiratory tract infections in children. Influenza and its complications are common at all ages. This clinical trial was carried out in Brazil with children aged from 1 to 5 years over a 12 month period. The test subjects were distributed into 3 experimental groups, (i) Homeopathic Complex (ii) Placebo (iii) Anti-influenza drugs. The results of the trial suggest that the use of homeopathic medicines minimized the number of flu and respiratory infection in children. The study supports homeopathic prophylactic potential and further study into this area.
