The Natural Flu Shot
Winter has arrived and the colder weather means cold and flu season is not far away. This is the time of year that the flu shot is heavily promoted. There has been a lot of controversy recently as to the effectiveness and safety of the regular flu vaccination and an increasing number of people have been questioning the logic of being injected with this viral cocktail especially when many healthcare workers are refusing to take it. The purpose of this article is to inform people that there is a safe and effective natural alternative to the regular flu shot we call it the natural flu shot. The natural flu shot is a homeopathic medicine designed for people who are not able to take the regular flu vaccination due to allergies or are looking for a more natural alternative. My experiencing over the last few years of using this natural preparation is that the natural flu shot provides safe and effective protection against cold and flu viruses.

The natural flu shot is administered by injection or can be given orally for children. Once the medicine is given it activates the immune system and provides protection against cold and flu viruses usually for the duration of the season.

There are two other excellent natural medicines that can be used in conjunction with the natural flu shot to provide added protection against cold and flu viruses one is called Thymuline and is a homeopathic preparation which improves the function of the thymus gland. The thymus gland produces T-cells. T-cells actively seek out and destroy invading microbes like viruses and prevent infections. Another good homeopathic preparation used to prevent colds and flu is called Influenzinum this is a homeopathic preparation of the currently active flu viruses. Influenzinum is taken orally and activates the immune system specifically to this year’s active viruses.

With so many safe and effective natural medicines available to prevent viral infections it makes good sense to use the natural approach to prevention especially for children and the elderly who are both more susceptible.

Additional suggestions to prevent colds and flu:

Take a good quality multivitamin/mineral daily.

Take extra vitamin C, I usually recommend 1000mg/day.

Take a daily dose of garlic, if you do not like the thought of eating fresh garlic I recommend a product called Garlitrin. Take 1 tablet/day during the fall and winter.

Drink fresh ginger root tea regularly in the fall and winter.

To prepare ginger tea use peeled fresh ginger root grate 1 teaspoon of the root per cup of water and boil the root for ten minutes. You can drink 1-3 cups per day. Ginger is also an excellent circulatory and digestive tonic.

Keep well and enjoy the winter season.
