Preventing Illness – Vitamin D

Vitamin D can be one of the most powerful vitamins in our arsenal to beating the flu before it starts.   As reported by the Daily Telegraph, studies show that Vitamin D is used in a complex process that prepare our “T” cells for immune system battles.  A deficiency in Vitamin D can hinder our T cells from doing their thing.

Our pediatrician recommended the following doses:

When healthy – Kids: 800IU  Adults: 4000 IUs

When sick – Kids: 1600IU   Adults: 8000 IUs

NaturalNews reports that 40% of Americans are deficient in Vitamin D and that we cannot get enough Vitamin D from diet alone.   Exposure to the sun (without sunscreen!) helps a lot, and there are ample vitamin D supplements on the market.

Preventing Illness – The Mighty Sambucus

Hold on to your hats.

Are you ready for this?

I want to introduce you to Sambucus.  This little berry packs a mighty punch.  A complete cure for the H1N1 flu strain was found within 2-3 days for 90% of the group given Sambucus.   The Journal of International Medical Research reported that 93% of the patients given Sambucus for influenza strains A & B were symptom-free within 2 days.

How does this baby work?  It actually stops virus replication in its tracks.

Sambucus has also been shown to have an immunoprotective effect when given to cancer or AIDS patients.

Rather than wait for the flu or some other nasty virus to try to take over my house, we take Sambucus as an immune-booster.

Sambucus is derived from the elderberry shrub and has been used medicinally for hundreds of years.

My kids even like the taste!   I order mine from Vitacost (for 46% off!), but you can find also find it at Whole Foods, Central Market, other health food stores, and Amazon (for 44% off!).

Preventing Illness – An alternative to the flu shot

You’ve likely heard the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”   As cold and flu season rolls around again, did you know there’s more you can do to prevent sickness than just taking good ole Vitamin C?

This new series will highlight different vitamins and supplements that you can take (and give to your kids!) to dramatically lower your incidence rate of sickness.   Yay for less sick days!

The Flu Shot – Think Twice

If you’re thinking about getting the flu shot, or giving it to your kids, can I give you a friendly suggestion?

Skip it.

There are a lot of reasons why it’s not a good idea and I encourage you to do some research to find out more.  According to health.com, the latest scientific reports indicate that it doesn’t work very well.   New data is emerging that says the vaccine is not even effective in the population it’s really designed for – the elderly.   Michael Osterholm, who directs the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, told a national conference on vaccine research that it’s time to be more open about the flu vaccine and its lack of protection for the elderly.   Researcher and doctor Lisa Jackson said it only reduces the number of deaths from the flu by 5% among elderly populations.

The safety of the vaccine is in question as well as its effectivness.  Limited studies have been done on the safety (only 6 out of 206 studies on the vaccine looked at its safety according to Dr. Tom Jefferson, a coordinator for an international group of researchers).

The majority of these vaccines still contain thermisol (and therefore, 49% mercury!), which is a known neurotoxin.   Our bodies have enough heavy metal toxins to deal with without injecting ourselves with more!

An Alternative

My children’s pediatrician introduced us to a great alternative to the flu shot - Influenzinum (Boiron).  This homeopathic remedy has been used by physicians for over 150 years, with great results.

A study conducted by the French Society of Homeopathy surveyed 23 homeopathic doctors about their use of Influenzinum.  Over a ten year period, 453 patients were tracked, and in approximately 90 percent of the cases no instances of the flu occurred when Influenzinum was used preventively no matter what the dosage protocol.

Among the physicians the effectiveness was deemed good to very good in 90 percent of the cases. In 5 percent there was no protective effect. Of the patients, 98 percent expressed a desire to take the same preventive treatment the following year.

For Little Ones

For little ones, King Bio Homeopathic Multi-Strain Influenza can be appropriate for them.   If someone does get sick, you can increase the dosage.

Where to Find It

Influenzinum and King Bio are readily available at your local health food store, or online.   Have you tried it?  What do you think?
