How To Combat The Flu Using Homeopathic Dos and Don’ts

Share This Post

What can you do to prevent getting sick from the flu?  Here are some tips to help you navigate:

  1. More Sleep. Try to get more sleep during this time. A rested body is a rested immune system. Your body “repairs” at night so if you are not rested there is a better chance of bugs to taking over.
  2. Drink more water. Filtered or bottled water only.  Staying hydrated feeds your cells and flushes out toxins from your body.
  3. Consider taking the following supplements by Standard Process. Why Standard Process? Their quality of herbs is top grade! Herbs are super powerful in preventing getting sick and fighting off infection but if the herb is of a low grade quality then the result will not be as effective.

Herbs to consider:

Viranon

This herb is needed if you are traveling or if exposure to bugs is elevated; use 2 a day at least 2 weeks prior to travel if you have to travel. Do not take this supplement without advice from your prescribing physician if you are on any medications. Do not take if you have high blood pressure, water retention, congestive heart failure, low blood potassium, pregnant or lactating. If any history of epilepsy avoid this herbal.

Andrographis Complex (gluten-free)

Take at least 1 tablet 2 times a day for children and for adults 2 tablets 2 times a day (do not take more than 6 a day); this one is also a preventative herb and for first signs of infection. Do not take if you have a known allergy to the daisy family or if pregnant; oftentimes during this time of year it is the onset of allergies versus a cold or flu that is triggered; Andrographis is phenomenal in addressing both clinical conditions.

Epimune

An amazing immune booster both vegetarian and gluten-free; if any allergies to mushrooms do not take this supplement or if allergic to the daisy family or pregnant. This product boosts your immune function and allows the body to ward off infection. There are other supplements on the market but these three listed above are quite amazing for those who are immune compromised or for those of us who simply do not want to get sick from this year’s flu. Chiropractic can give your immune system a boost with a spinal adjustment. Over 2,800 individuals received regular chiropractic care and the result was an average decrease in the incidence of colds and the flu. According to the World Chiropractic Alliance, spinal adjustments can help your immune system function better.
