Immune System Hacks for Flu Season
Antiviral Peptide Boost – This is what I take as a clinician during Flu Season.
1000 mg – Vitamin C
1000 IU – Vitamin D3 (with K2 is better)
1000 mg – Omega-3 fatty acid
(3 times per day. Half as much for children over 4)
If you are around a lot of people with symptoms of the flu and you are prone to catching what is going around, then Oil of Oregano is a good choice.
I usually mix Oil of Oregano with melted coconut oil (1 ml of Oregano Oil to 1 tsp Coconut oil).
When it is time for a dose, I put ¼ teaspoon in half a glass of water and put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Then I drink the water and the hardened oil, just like swallowing a pill. This is safer than taking Oil of Oregano directly in your mouth, which can sometimes set off a more reactive throat infection.
If you catch a chill and then try and get warm, and still feel cold under your skin, try this.
Cut up the white part of 3 green onions and one Tbsp of minced and crushed ginger. Simmer them together for 10 minutes in 2 cups of water or bone broth. Add some unpasteurized honey and curl up in a big blanket.
Elderberry tincture is a great tonic – it is NOT A CURE!
Bone broth with ginger and lemon twice a day is good for everyone and supports your immune system and mucous membranes in a general way.
Chinese Herbal Supplements: a combination of a front line immune tonic, anything that will reduce your personal and individual Viral Load, and immune adaptogen that is also right for you is just common sense. (The DC-Oil protocol functions in a similar way)
You can challenge and boost your immune system with a Sauna, alternate temperate showers (hot/cold), and if you are fit – fasting.
Please watch the first video if you want some general advice – especially on the practicality of pretending you are trying to protect others more than yourself.
Please watch the second video if you are a clinician or are curious about what is happening on the front lines.
If you are worried and have no flu symptoms, contact your health care provider. They will already have a sense of how your immune system is working and can offer more personal advice.
If you are getting flu symptoms, especially outside of Asia, call your local hospital.
AVOID going to the hospital unless you need to be there. If you are symptomatic and there is any likelihood you have this or any other serious infection, your local health authority will send the right people to help make the next decisions.
PLEASE DO NOT PANIC!
If we all show some common sense and focus on common sense and prevention, this New virus will become old news.
