When you hear the flu is approaching, the most important action you can take is to avoid ALL SUGARS!!

Processed sugar particularly weakens the immune system.  I might even include fruits if you feel very threatened.

Our steady flu remedies are (pick 2 or 3):

  • Nucleotides 2 twice or three times a day for threat of infection, for the flu use 2 every 2 hours while awake. This enhances the immune system.
  • Colostrum does for children what Nucleotides do for adults. Oligo-Cu (Oligo-copper) use 1 ampule 3 times a day for the flu.  Use 1 ampule for threats (concerns of catching the flu on a plane).  Children can use 1/2 ampule three times a day.  This is anti-viral, anti-bacterial.
  • Mucococcinum is a homeopathic compilation of worst flus of the last 100 years.  You can dissolve one tablet in your mouth every 2 weeks for prevention.  If you get the flu, take 2 or 3 tablets per day.
  • Echinacea enhances the immune system.  Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing. Vitamin C in  doses of 1000 to 3000 mg per day has anti-viral  actions.  Use smaller doses for children.  If you get diarrhea, the dose is too high.
  • Pregnant and nursing women can use Oligo-Cu, Unda 5, 15 and 37, as well as Vitamin C.

Flu Precautions: “Take plenty of Vitamin C (to bowel tolerance)  and drink plenty of water.

Use basic hygiene–wash hands before eating and after using the bathroom, sneeze or cough into a handkerchief or tissue, and be sure to get enough sleep.

Bacteria thrives on sugar, so limit sweets.

If you feel run-down or that you have been exposed, we have products here that can help bolster your immune system or mitigate flu effects.

I recommend Nucleotides, Gammadyn Cu, and mucococcinum, all in stock in our naturopathic pharmacy.
