Hot weather, sudden change of weather
Sitting up

3. Arsenicum Album

Probably one of the most common remedy for “gastric ’flu” influenza with gastroenteritis.

Vomiting and diarrhea especially after eating or drinking
Feeling worse between midnight and one o’clock in the morning
A fever, followed by chills
Hot face while craving open air, yet the body feels chilled

Wanting company at all times.

In fact, I never go anywhere without homeopathic remedies. I often make use of them.”
