Anshutz gives a useful therapeutic differential diagnosis of the condition Grippe, Influenza, with the most useful homeopathic remedies. Therapeutic byways by E.P. Anshutz, published in 1900….

Natrum sulphuricum [Nat-s]

      This remedy is claimed by some to be a specific for genuine grippe or influenza, or for the lingering after effects-if you haven’t been cured by it. Give Natrum sulph. 6x, about 6 tablets, every two hours, until amelioration sets in, then lessen the dose.

Avena sativa [Aven]

      For the often slow convalescence from grippe, 5 drops of Avena sat. 0, three or four times a day, is said to be very effective. It is a tincture of oats.

Sabadilla [Sabad]

      This is a remedy for grippe that seems allied to hay-fever-red eyes, watery, much sneezing, running at the nose, headache. Use Sabadilla 3. Dose, every hour.

Eupatorium perfoliatum [Eup-per]

      This is the old herbalists’ bone-set. It is indicated in grippe, or colds, when the bones ache-the whole body and headaches. Give the tincture or the 3d or higher, about four times a day.

Gelsemium [Gels]

      This drug comes in grippe when the patient is drowsy, listless, weak and prostrated. Use the 3d potency.

Bryonia [Bry]

      comes in where the pain seems to centre in the chest. Use 3d potency.

Arsenicum [Ars]

      comes in where a burning sensation is largely in evidence. Use 6th potency.

Ambrosia artemisiaefolia [Ambro]

      will cure more acute colds than all other remedies I have used.- Kirkland.
