This is my protocol...
1. It is important to understand that the symptoms of fever, inflammation, sinus drainage, coughing, diarrhea & vomiting are generated by the body's immune system. It is the body's way to flush out irritants. We don't want to stop this process but we can nourish the body while it is working for us.
2. When you notice something coming on, stop eating. Switch to fruit & veggie juices, soups and broths and applesauce. Add sauteed onions & garlic to chicken noodle soup.
3. As soon as possible, rest and take a warm bath with Epsom salt or a Mineral bath. It will open up the body's channels of elimination and help you to recover faster. Use a hot water bottle for chills instead of a heating blanket.
Keep on hand at all times...
Lemons in every liquid
Onions & garlic in chicken noodle soup
Ginger tea, peppermint tea, detox tea
Some NSP herbal choices...
Thai Go 1/3 cup 2-3 x day
Elderberry Defense has echinacea, elderberries & royal jelly....great anti viral formula
If it affects your lungs, try Seasonal Defense. If your lungs tend to be weak, Cordyceps is good because it acts as a lung tonic.
If it affects the digestive tract, good choices would be HCP-X and Small Intestine Detox.
When the flu gets deeper, symptoms are fever, fever with chills, muscle ache & general weakness. At this point try IFC, Immune Stimulator, VS-C and/or Colloidal Silver.
These remedies work best 2-3 capsules every 2-3 hrs with plenty of water, teas and juices.
In all you do, give thanks!
