New Healthier Option for Flu Symptom Medicine

January 11th, 2014

A new natural flu medicine is on the market that will not interact with high blood pressure meds and other prescriptions.

I recently heard about a new, non-drowsy flu symptom medicine, called Oscillococcinum, which clinical studies show relieve both the severity and duration of flu symptoms such as chills, body aches, fever, headache, weakness. The amazing part of the information on this drug is that is said to be:

-all natural

-over-the-counter

-no side effects AND

no danger of drug interaction, such as with high blood pressure medication.

Oscillococcinum comes in quick-dissolving oral pellets that should be taken at the first sign of flu, 1 for adults and children 2 years and up, every 6 hours, up to 3 times a day. The VitaminShoppe.com carries it in local stores and online, which is where I read about it. A six dose package runs about $8.50. The article says it has been used by “millions of people and is recommended by doctors around the world.”

This sounds like a great new option especially for those unable to take regular flu medication due to their high blood pressure meds or other prescriptions.

Improve Your Body’s Defense Against Flu & Other Infections

November 17th, 2012

Below are a variety of favorite suggestions by well-known physicians for natural ways to optimize your body’s natural health defenses through supplements and some common health practices. 

Dr. Holtorf  of the Holtorf Medical Group posted a question and answer session online from his interview with an international news network.  Here is a quote from his suggestions to prevent viruses and infections. Use the link in the footnote to read the full article.

Natural ways to prevent an infection include vitamin D 5000-15,000 per day (best to check levels), zinc 50 mg/day, vitamin C 3000 mg/day, licorice root extract and miataki mushroom D-fraction. There are good combination products available (Virunex, Immunostim). Nasal colloidal silver can be very effective. It is very safe, and no virus has ever been shown to develop resistance to silver.

Dr. Joseph Mercola is also a strong advocate of optimizing your vitamin D levels, not just for flu prevention but daily health. It is also one of the least expensive ways to be proactive.

He makes 2 strong statements advocating vitamin D:

-Optimizing your vitamin D levels is the absolute best strategy for avoiding infections of all kinds.
