Suggestions for Supplements that

Send Pathogens Packin'

 

If you or someone you care about is suffering from the flu or cold virus, Dr. Korman has a few healthy and natural suggestions that may be helpful for you!

 Avoid sugar, including popsicles, soda pop, and crackers, and processed foods, as these will only suppress your fighting back immune system.

2)  Consume our favorite...grass-fed bone broths and the teas described below.  Both are clear liquids, easy on the digestive track, with healing minerals and nutrients.

3)  Supplements can be beneficial, but they should be used only as an adjunct to the lifestyle measures already discussed.  Some of the more helpful ones for the cold and flu are...

Vitamin C:  A very potent antioxidant; use a natural form such as acerola, which contains associated micronutrients. 

Oregano Oil:  The higher the carvacrol concentration, the more effective it is.  Carvacrol is the most active antimicrobial agent in oregano oil.

Propolis:  A bee resin and one of the most broad-spectrum antimicrobial compounds in the world.  Propolis is also the richest source of caffeic acid and apigenin, two very important compounds that aid in immune response and even fight cancer.

A tea made from a combination of elderflower, yarrow, boneset, linden, peppermint and ginger; drink it hot and often for combating a cold or flu.  It causes you to sweat, which is helpful for eradicating a virus from you system.

Olive leaf extract: Ancient Egyptians and Mediterranean cultures used it for a variety of health-promoting uses and it is widely known as a natural, non-toxic immune system builder.

Another treatment that is surprisingly effective against upper respiratory infections is hydrogen peroxide.

My patients have had remarkable results in curing the colds and flu within 12-14 hours when administering a few drops of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into each ear.  You will har some bubbling which is completely normal, and possibly slight stinging.

Wait until the bubbling and stinging subside (usually 5-10 minutes) and then drain onto a tissue and repeat with the other ear.  A bottle of hydrogen peroxide in 3 percent solution is available at any drug store for a couple of dollars. It is simply amazing how many people respond to this simple, inexpensive treatment.

Incorporate these strategies, and you'll be able to nip that nasty little virus in the bud - before it can say, "Big Pharma."
