My most recent experience with homeopathy involved the flu and a friend. I was working in an office in Oklahoma with a few hundred other people and naturally had opportunity for exposure to the “bugs” circulating at the time. I had already developed sniffles, aches, sore throat, and disgust: I don’t want to lose time at work!
So I talked with a friend who is an alternative-health practitioner in Missouri, and she had personally had good results taking Oscillococcinum (one of the varieties of those tiny homeopathic pills). So I took the suggestion and picked up a three-tube pack at the health food store. It was Friday… and within a day I was much better, with the sore throat and sniffles fading. By Monday I was feeling very well and ready to take on the world… or at least the next virus.
