So You Have The FLU...Now What Do You Do?

PRODUCTS that I would personally take if I came down with Flu symptoms are listed below. It is probably a worthwhile idea to take MORE things to raise the immune system than LESS....simply because the more varied support your body receives, the better it will be able to fight off the invading virus. Some of these are things to be taking regularly beforehand as a preventative, read more in this BLOG posting: Why do People opt out of the Flu Shot & What is Virus Shedding? Natural Fighters include:
  • Vitamin D3 --between 10,000 IU's -15,000 IU's /day for the duration of the illness, then cutting that in half for several days before going back to the preventative 5,000 IU's a day as a preventative. Here's ours: Vitamin D3
  • A extremely HIGH QUALITY multi mineral/vitamin that does not contain iron or copper, here is the brand we take: Super Supplemental Vit. & Min. w/o Iron (Natures Sunshine) We typically take 2, 3x day...but would "up this" to 4, 3x day during an illness. Keep in mind that you will need to get your body accustomed to this strength in nutrition gradually BEFORE you come down with something, so as not to force the body into "shock detox mode" while also fighting the Flu.....if you normally take it, your body will know what to do with it in a virus situation.
  • Zinc --ours from Natures Sunshine has 25 mg in each tablet. When coming down with an illness, we will take them throughout the day, up to 5-6/day totaling 125-150 mg. Zinc Link
  • High quality Bioflavinoid Vitamin C--1,000 mgs 4-5 times a day. There is high anti-inflammatory activity with Vitamin C as well as anti viral potential Vitamin C Citrus Bioflavonoids
  • INFLUENZINUM remedy, available for purchasing at:
    OSCILLO COCCINUM remedy, only taking doses shall symptoms GREATLY and NOTABLY worsen) GRIPPE HP from Energique. ALL three remedies can be tried out a an hour apart, until finding one of the 3 that slightly relieves symptoms. When one is discovered, one can take it whenever symptoms notably worsen. Take remedy 15 min. away from food/drink. Store all REMEDIES away from anything electrical.
All of these should be available at natural health stores in your area. These are all nutrients that can lessen symptoms, shall you exhibit some. But depending upon how healthy your body is, will make all the difference in your severity of symptoms and length of illnesses. Here are a few other suggestions:
  • Elderberry, Goldenseal, Echinacea are all herbs that can be taken in extract, syrup, capsule or drop form to give the immune system a huge boost as it's fighting. Here's an absolutely phenomenal product that has all 3 of these, plus zinc and Vitamin C: ACF (Accute Cold & Flu Formula) by BURIED TREASURE. They have "PREVENTION", "CHILDREN'S" and "FAST RELIEF" formulas on the market. If I had to pick one herb mixture to along with the above vitamins, minerals and remedies, it would be this product! Opting to take only one of these? Highly consider going with Elderberry! Taking two doses of elderberry flavonoids per day for prevention of flu, increasing to at least 4 doses upon exposure, increasing to every 2 hrs if flu symptoms begin. Here's a fabulous "TRADITIONAL MEDICINE" article on Elderberry's effectiveness: Elderberry flavonoids bind to and prevent H1N1 inf...[Phytochemistry. 2009] - PubMed Result

Looking for a natural disinfectant spray or hand sanitizer to keep on hand for when you're out and about?

  • Silver Shield Gel and SILVER SHIELD W/AQUA SOL from Natures Sunshine are the products you are looking for! Silver is a naturally occuring, God-given nutrient that kills bacteria and viruses on contact. Use the silvershield as a spray in the air surrounding you, on surfaces and on hands/face when out and about to be killing bacteria naturally and harmfully. Natures Sunshine leaders took Silver Shield with them on their trip overseas to work with Leprosy--no shots, just kept using Silver Shield to protect themselves. No one in their group got sick or had any changes in their blood test results (like alcohol hand sanitizers do!) This product can also be sprayed onto any wound to dis-infect it, in the nose or mouth to fight respiratory, throat or sinus infections, can betaken taken orally to fight any infection, and is even gentle but effective enough to use in the eyes with any eye irritations or viruses/bacterias!

In fact, SILVER is such a good sanitizer, there is a company called NORWEX that now weaves silver threads into their micro-fiber clothes to keep them from getting mildewy, along with killing bacteria on contact: NORWEX PRODUCTS or e-mail Heidi to see prices or order products:
