hi everybody.

The flu seems to be a really bad strain this year and there have been reports of fatalities.

We do not take the flu vaccine in our family for a variety of reasons. But we do want to protect ourselves this season.

Can anybody recommend herbals that we can take to prevent or weaken the flu virus?

thanks in advance.

Our doctor gave us Viricid by Orthomolecular. Had good stuff in it. I can't take herbs, but it seemed to help my husband. We have really been hit hard.

This is one of my favorite references. It's an excellent summary of some of Stephen Buhner's recommendations and explanations of herbal antivirals for cytokine disruption for influenza:

https://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/herbal-medicine-influenza-pandemics/

Many details can be found in Herbal Antivirals. I highly recommend Buhner's books Herbal Antivirals and Herbal Antibiotics in addition to his other works. Great stuff.

--------------
Which Foods Feed the Flu?

It is important to understand that the foods you put into your body can either help prevent viruses or help feed and support viruses.

Connecting with this concept and starting to make some dietary changes can help you begin to protect yourself.


Dairy products, which I discuss in both Medical Medium and Life-Changing Foods, are one group of foods that can feed and strengthen viruses.

You may feel fine after eating a piece of cheese or drinking a glass of milk, but these dairy products can silently create chaos in your body by feeding any virus,

whether it be a flu virus, Epstein-Barr, cytomegalovirus, HHV-6, HHV-1 or HHV-2 (you can learn more about the herpes viruses here),

bacteria, such as E. coli or MRSA, and parasites or worms.


If you’re looking to avoid certain health issues, including a flu virus, eliminate milk, cheese, butter, kefir, yogurt, ghee, and any other dairy product from your diet.


If you already have the flu, keeping these products out of your diet can help reduce mucus buildup and may result in fewer and milder symptoms overall.


Eggs are another food to remove from your diet when you want to avoid catching a flu or you want to lessen the severity of a flu you may be fighting off.

If you are unwilling to give up your traditional eggs and toast breakfast, at least bring a hearty amount of raw garlic into the meal.

Even though the eggs will feed the flu virus, the raw garlic will work hard to combat the bug.


Removing chicken from your diet is another incredibly beneficial step.

You maybe wondering— what is wrong with chicken?

To better understand the answer to this question, you first need to learn about avian influenza.

----------------------------------
Healing Herbs & Supplements


There are a variety of powerful supplements you can use as weapons against a flu virus.

Try to keep zinc and some of these other supplements readily available for you and your loved ones.

That way if flu symptoms do appear out of nowhere, you will have the tools to take it on right away!


Olive leaf maybe a great daily supplement for anyone fighting off an Epstein-Barr-related symptom or condition, but it can also be great for anyone who is starting to feel sick and noticing flu-like symptoms.

In this instance, upping the dose of olive leaf can be beneficial.


Echinacea and goldenseal are two other supplements to incorporate when you are fighting a flu.

If you are battling streptococcus, strep throat, tonsillitis, or strep-related sinus infections you may also benefit from incorporating these two healing supplements periodically.


Elderberry syrup is another incredible flu-fighting supplement.

Lomatium root is a wonderful support and has been known to help with flu symptoms, bronchitis, pneumonia, sinus problems, fever, and more. Not only is eyebright a beautiful herb,

it is also amazing at knocking down flus and streptococcus in the system.


If you are suffering with a cough, consider bringing cherry bark into your protocol.


Mullein leaf, which is incredible for shingles-related symptoms and conditions, is also great for fighting the flu, sinus infections, bronchitis, and lung issues.


Propolis can be a powerful immune system support and can be a great supplement to take if you start to feel the beginnings of a flu arise.


Taking a daily dose of Ester-C or liposomal C is a great practice.

And, if you are starting to feel sick or are battling a flu, increasing the amount can be highly beneficial.

Red root can be another helpful supplement to incorporate.

When purchasing these supplements, try to find high-quality capsules or alcohol-free tinctures.

You can check out the Medical Medium preferred supplements page for specific recommendations.


All different kinds of teas can provide benefits for someone suffering with flu symptoms.

For even more healing-might in each mug try squeezing lemon into your teas.

Steeping a deep red glass of rose hips tea and adding in ample lemon juice can be particularly powerful and incredible for sore throats.


If you are a mom trying to help keep your kiddos flu-free, try using some of the healing supplements in smaller dosages.

Working with a practitioner to figure out the perfect amount for your unique child may be best.

I've taken Oreganol for years and havent had flu or a cold in at least ten years.

Can't prove that's the reason--maybe wouldn't have gotten sick anyway, but I'll keep taking it.

I don't take every day, but if I think I'm getting a symptom for a cold, I take 3 drops a few times a day.
