Watch Sophie Alexander, Lead Practitioner at Nutritional Wellness Center, talk about "Beating the Cold and Flu Season"!
Cold and Flu Relief Protocol
*** Very Important***
For best results begin these remedies at the very first sign of getting sick. Don’t wait! We all get an “Uh Oh” moment before we get sick - start then and keep repeating frequently! Do not just take one or two doses and then stop
Standard Process and MediHerb Supplements to Take
