Staying Healthy During FLU Season

There are many tools to help you prevent and fight off ANY kind of flu, whether it's the regular or H1N1 flu.

I know there is a lot of pressure to get the seasonal and the H1N1 flu vaccine, however, I do not recommend getting a flu shot or use the flu mist version. As a naturopathic physician, I know the body can fight off any flu with the proper support of the immune system. We already have had cases of Swine flu in our office and the ozone treatments took care of it immediately.

“Study after study, and master studies that compile the results from several studies to get a more objective result, keep coming to the same conclusion: Flu vaccines DO NOT WORK, and in many cases do more harm than good.” ~Dr. Mercola

Please go to: to read more from Dr. Mercola and to watch a quick video by Thinktwice Global Vaccine Institute with a good summary of what every person should know about the seasonal flu vaccine; how it’s made, and its effectiveness, so you can make an informed choice!

Tips to try and help PREVENT the flu:
1. Wash your hands frequently
2. Drink enough water even in the winter months
3. Eat a well balanced nutritious diet
4. Take a food based multi vitamin and fish oil.
5. 2000-4000 I.U. of vitamin D daily has been shown to help to prevent the flu
6. Elderberry syrup: 1 teaspoon before bed; this has been shown to inhibit and kill H1N1 through various studies
7. You can take a “Homeopathic flu vaccine”, called Influenzinum, via oral homeopathic pellets taken 1 pellet every 3 weeks throughout the flu season. It’s effective and has no adverse reactions.
8. You can also take an oral immune system support formula as prevention (i.e. Acute Immune or Super Bio-vegetarian) at 2 caps/tabs once or twice daily.
9. Another great way to help prevent the flu is by minor autohemotherapy (where small amount of your blood is taken out of the body, ozonated and injected back into a muscle), this stimulates the non specific immune system, our first line of defense against viruses, through the production of cytokines and natural killer cells. This is best done every 3-4 weeks during flu season.

Upon the first signs of the flu:
Homeopathic Oscillococcinum (from Boiron) taken every 2-3 hours together with immune system formula (such as Acute immune or Super Bio Vegetarian at 2 every 2-3 hours), high dose vitamin D, proper diet (with avoidance of sugars and simple carbohydrates) and constitutional hydrotherapy on a daily basis -- all those can be done at home!

Or we can administer a stronger treatment in the office, if the above were not sufficient, such as intravenous high dose vitamin C or major ozone therapy to help your immune system fight the flu!
