Guess what? The Flu vaccine is not effective this year 2015 according to the Centers for Disease Control and it is spreading now like wildfire!
Fortunately you can protect yourself whether you have been vaccinated or not. Although there are many anti-viral supplements available, here are four we have found in our practice, for ourselves, and our families, to be consistently effective to prevent or get rid of the flu virus.
- Anti-V with Echinamide (Natural Factors) capsules contains immune boosting and potent anti-viral herbs to help your immune system fight off viruses. Herbs include triple standardized Echinacea purpurea, Lomatium dissectum, Astragalus membranaceus, Reishi mushroom, and licorice. Children 12+ and Adults 2 caps 3 x day.
- Esberitox (chewable) ( Enzymatic Therapy) Echinacea supports your immune system defenses by fortifying your most critical cells with natural fighting power. Esberitox® has been the top-selling remedy in Europe for over 70 years and can be used by your entire family. Only Esberitox® combines two types of Echinacea with two additional immune-supporting herbs, baptisia and thuja.* This gives Esberitox® a broader spectrum of activity than Echinacea alone.* The powerful combination promotes the body's resistive functions by stimulating the production and activity of critical immune cells.* Safe for Children and Adults use as directed on label.
- Oreganol capsules (North American Herb) Oregano has shown antimicrobial activity in a number of studies. A group of Portuguese researchers found that Origanum vulgare essential oils were effective against 41 strains of the food pathogen Listeria monocytogenes. Oregano oil is a powerful antimicrobial, because it contains an essential compound called carvacol. A team of British and Indian researchers reported that the essential oil of Himalayan oregano has strong antibacterial properties that can even kill the hospital superbug MRSA. Professor Vyv Salisbury, who was part of the research, said "We have done a few preliminary tests and have found that the essential oil from the oregano kills MRSA at a dilution 1 to 1,000. The tests show that the oil kills MRSA both as a liquid and as a vapor and its antimicrobial activity is not diminished by heating in boiling water." Adults take 1 capsule 3 x day before meals.
- SilverBiotics 10ppm (American Biotech Labs) Colloidal Silver is made from pure water and silver, using electrolysis. It is microscopic-sized solid silver particles suspended in the water. The microscopic silver particles can more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body. Colloidal Silver works as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that all one celled viruses, bacteria and fungi use for their oxygen metabolism. The presence of Colloidal Silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen, disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to say. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies and is cleared out of the body by the immune system. Colloidal Silver is of no harm to human enzymes or any part of the human body chemistry. It can be taken internally or used externally as a disinfectant and beneficial for 2-3 hours. Safe for all ages and does not interfere with any medications. Children under 5 years take ½ tsp every 3 hours, Children 6-9 take 1 tsp every 3 hours. Children 10+ and Adults take 1 tsp every 2 hours.
