MORE PROTECTION FROM THE FLU VIRUS

 VITAMINS AND MINERALS – zinc, vitamin C, vitamin D3, and Chlorella help boost immunity for effective flu treatment.

OREGANO OIL the volatile oils in oregano (thymol and carvacrol) have antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties is also one of the best home remedies for flu treatment because it promotes sweating, which makes it useful to bring down a fever.

  • I have oregano oil in stock in both liquid and capsule form.

NAC (N-ACETYL L-CYSTEINE) – . It is a powerful antioxidant that helps boosts immunity, reduces respiratory mucus and helps with breathing in various lung conditions. Particularly beneficial for older patients.

PROBIOTICS

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that keep your gut healthy and strong, thus boosting your immune system. It’s best to start taking probiotics before you get the flu, especially if you have been in contact with someone who is ill. Probiotics are especially helpful for children’s immunity.

When selecting a probiotic, try to choose one that contains species of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum,  Bifidobacteria longum, and Lactobacillus rhamnosus.

KITCHEN CUPBOARD REMEDY – mix ginger, garlic, chillis and Manuka honey (to your own taste) in hot water.  Drink and go to bed.

EUCALYPTUS OIL – inhale Eucalyptus oil, either directly from the bottle, or with a vaporiser.

HERBS that can help prevent viral infections include Elderberry, Echinacea, Astragalus, Olive leaf, Siberian ginseng, Cat’s Claw, and Shiitake mushrooms.

  • Call me if you wish to have a tincture of these herbal medicines to help protect against Influenza.
  • If you have had a previous consultation with me, this herbal tincture can be dispensed without a consultation, unless there has been a change in medication or health status.
