Natural Remedies For Flu
- Vitamin C is an essential flu natural remedy.
The recommended amount is between 5,000 and 10,000 mg daily in divided dosages. I prefer Time-Released Vitamin C to any other.
Some people are prone to diarrhea with large doses. This is unlikely however if you combine the vitamin with calcium.
Use caution if you’re diabetic (no mega dosing).
Vitamin C appears to concentrate in the white blood cells, which are responsible for fighting off the invaders.
- Nano-silver: effective natural flu remedy. Nano particles of silver solution appear to have very interesting characteristics. Unlike colloidal silver or ionic silver this is an AG 404 (a silver atom has missing 2 electrons in its outer shell, or orbit) it can destroy thousand of times more pathogens.
Reputable labs at the University of Georgia, Kansas State University, University of Arizona and others completed research supporting nano-silver’s use in fighting pathogens. This includes viruses.
We've got a page about nano-silver, originally written for our Canadian friends, but you too can learn something new (or so I hope) about this cool, effective supplement.
Click: Silver Shield
Here is the nano-silver that recommend and use myself for various infections: Silver Shield.
- Olive Leaf Extract – proven natural flu remedy - famous in Europe and christened there as a natural antibiotic. It fights bacterial and viral infections by disrupting their growth, without harming the beneficial bacteria. There is evidence that Olive Leaf may stimulate the activity of specialized cells in the immune system. Choose the extract that’s has been standardized to 12% of Oleuropein (check the link above).
Olive Leaf Extract - you may want to notice - is also slightly hypotensive (tends to lower one's blood pressure) and may be effective for varicose veins as well!
My wife successfully used it (in addition to other herbs) to treat her terrible respiratory allergies years ago.
- Echinacea and Goldenseal widely recognized as excellent natural flu remedies. These are popular herbs used in strengthening immune system function. Tincture is recommended for children. You can use 10 drops in water every 3 hours, until symptoms are gone.
This tincture needs to be taken at first signs of the flu or cold (works for the common cold too). The same combination in a capsule form is more suitable for adults.
These two herbs combined together will also fight a common cold!So it's really worth it to have a bottle or two at hand...
Flu natural remedies from Chinese Herbology
There are certain Chinese herbs used also by the modern western herbalists, that are very useful in treating chronic and acute viral infections.
Look for an herbal combination that includes herbs such as indigo, thlaspi, purslane, bupleurum, scute, pinellia. These herbs have been very effective in fighting infections, according to the Chinese.
Here is an excellent example of such herbal medicine, also available in both: tincture and capsules. It is know as VS-C.
The tincture can be safely given to children, when virus is suspected.
I find in my own practice that these herbs are indeed priceless.
Incidentally I would recommend this herbal tincture for chronic viral condition as well. Examples include herpes and hepatitis.Also my good friend Dr Anthony Rybicki, MD from Poland has been very successful in treating the above in many of his patients with VS-C.
