Beating the Cold & Flu Season Talk by Sophie Alexander, Lead Practitioner at Nutritional Wellnes

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

(Available at Nutritional Wellness Center)

  • Congaplex - At onset: 2 capsules every 30-60 minutes. Keep repeating until you are sure you are not getting sick. Do not just take one or two doses and stop. You must repeat this frequently. Once you are sick: 10 -12 capsules spread throughout the day.

  • Cataplex A-C - 9-12 tablets spread throughout the day.

  • MediHerb Herbal Throat Spray: Unlimited all day long. This is not only for a sore throat! It boosts the entire immune system. Use it as preventative.

  • Echinacea Premium and/or Andrographis Complex: If the cold is severe or is not clearing up quickly. At onset: 2 tablets per hour. Once you’re sick: 4-6 tablets spread throughout the day.

Home Remedies to Try:

  • Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and Water: In an 8 oz. glass of water, mix two tsp of raw apple cider vinegar. You could add one tsp of raw honey and/or one tsp of blackstrap molasses if you are not sugar sensitive. Repeat through the day.

  • Drink plenty of bone broth throughout the day.

  • Hot water with fresh squeezed lemon, grated ginger and one tsp of raw honey throughout the day.

  • Gargle with salt water

  • Netti Pot

  • Steaming

  • Put 1-2 drops of hydrogen peroxide in each ear (for any cold, not just ear aches).

The Key is to Stay Healthy! Here are some reminders:

  • Get plenty of sleep - this is number one!

  • Drink plenty of water

  • Limit/eliminate sweets

  • Eat good fats

  • Have homemade bone broth (using apple cider vinegar)

  • Take all supplements as directed

We hope this information is helpful!
