Healthy ways to fight a cold and the flu


DO YOU WANT TO GET WELL FAST FROM A WINTER FLU  OR COLD WITHOUT OVER THE COUNTER DRUGS?

HELP IN FLU AND COLD SEASON WITHOUT  ANY SIDE EFFECTS

Hi.  Happy Mid February.  I hope this finds you all well and enjoying the winter months.

This is the time of year when everyone is getting colds or the flu. (Especially with all the cold weather on the East Coast and all of the wet weather in California).

Part of my journey to wellness has been to eliminate all over the counter drugs since they all have a negative impact on the body. Over the counter medications impact your gut, and hinder your return to wellness.

I have a whole chapter about the side effects of over the counter drugs in my upcoming book “It Feels Good To Feel Good How I Learned to Eliminate Toxins, Reverse Inflammation and Feel Great Again” due out May 2017.

I wanted to share what I use now as my alternative remedies when I am getting a cold or the flu. I found these suggestions in a blog by functional MD Aviva Romm called How 7 Top Herbalists and Doctors Fight the Flu 7/22/2013.

These are amazing and work really well for us.  Both my husband and I went through colds in record time. Knock on wood, neither of us has had the flu this winter.  Yippee.

• Echinacea Goldenseal
• Immunocare II by Natura
• FLEW AWAY by Natura
• Freeze Dried Stinging Nettles
• Sambucol, which is elderberry

Cough drops

ZAND Herbalozenge Lozenges, Orange C, Natural Orange Flavor (sweetened with brown rice syrup)

I also use Cold Calm and Oscillococcinum, which are homeopathic and if I use them at the first sign of illness, they do their magic.

For

SORE OR SCRATCHY THROAT

• Mickelberry Elderberry Tonic with Honey
• Mickleberry Elderberry Throat and Lung Tonic

A great throat spray
• Vitality Works Throat Ease

Dr. Tieraona Low Dog, just noted in her Facebook postings Dec 26, 2106, that a new study showed that Elderberry and Echinacea showed to be as effective as Tamiflu.

Keep these items on hand because all of these items are important to use immediately when you feel the symptoms of a cold or flu coming on. I have used Echinacea Goldenseal for years, and have added the Sambucol recently. These work for me.

Here’s to a return to wellness as quickly as possible.

YOU ARE INDESCRIBABLY DELICIOUS. LIVE WITH INTENT. LIVE LIFE WITH PLEASURE AND GUSTO. BE HEALTHY.

Hugs, Cheryl M Health Muse.
