 How do they know that a virus caused the flu epidemic of 1918, when the first virus was not isolated until 1933?

     They don't.In fact, many believe that the epidemic was actually a vaccine reaction.

      When Army vaccinations became compulsory in 1911, the death rate from typhoid vaccination rose to the highest point in the history of the US Army. US Secretary of War Henry L Stimson reported that seven men dropped dead after being vaccinated. He also reported 63 deaths and 28,585 cases of hepatitis as a direct result of yellow fever vaccination during only six months of World War I. According to a report in the Irish Examiner, "The report of the Surgeon-General of the US Army shows that during 1917 they were admitted into the army hospitals 19,608 men suffering from anti-typhoid inoculation and vaccinia. When army doctors tried to suppress the symptoms of typhoid with a stronger vaccine, it caused a worse form of typhoid i.e. paratyphoid. But when they concocted an even stronger vaccine to suppress that one, they created an even worse disease Spanish flu."

 Did the flu strain that caused the 1918 flu ever return?

      The 1918 `Spanish Flu` was first reported in an American military, Camp Funston, Fort Riley, in troops preparing for World War I and receiving 25 vaccinations. According to the Centres for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), the same flu strain appeared only one other time: in 1976. This was again at a US army base, Fort Dix, and again, was seen in recently vaccinated troops, and only in them. The virus has not reported to have appeared anywhere else in USA.

   Is homeopathy successful in treating the modern flu? What can I do to prevent the flu?

      Homoeopathy has been effectively treating influenza for all these years. Unlike conventional a medicine which has either sedation or lethargy due to anti-histamines, homoeopathic medicines are free from side effects and has quick recovery comparatively with less number of loss of productive human hours.
