Each winter, influenza affects many people and wreaks havoc on their ability to work and play. The flu virus can come on slowly or it can hit suddenly without much notice. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, headache, muscle aches, a runny nose, and cough, as well as stomach symptoms like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Year after year, individuals struggle with the decision of whether or not to get the flu shot and wonder how they can further protect themselves and their family from getting the flu through natural means.
There are very effective naturopathic solutions to prevent and treat influenza. The key is in building up a strong immune system, which is imperative to contain the flu. Vitamins and minerals, botanical medicine and lifestyle recommendations are all key.
Here at P3 Health, I has developed a flu prevention protocol using some time-tested German natural medications, specifically designed to recruit white blood cell lines that fight viral infections. My treatment protocol is very effective, with no side effects, and can be administered to all ages.
The following natural remedies are on offer at P3 Health:
Pleo Not (Notakehl): Pleo Not (Notakehl) is for both chronic and acute bacterial infections and conditions, especially for staph and strep infections.While it is an extract of Penicillium glabrum, it is not an antibiotic and so is suitable for patients with antibiotic allergies.
Pleo Quent (Quentakehl): Pleo Quent is used for acute, chronic and latent viral conditions. While it is an extract of Penicillium glabrum, it is not an antibiotic and so is suitable for patients with antibiotic allergies.
Pleo Rec (Recarcin): Pleo Rec (Recarcin) is used for sub-acute and chronic inflammations, especially inflammation of the mucous membranes and caused by fever. It is also an immune modulator.
Pascoleucyn: Pascoleucyn is a homeopathic remedy complex that works to relieve symptoms due to colds and flu such as headache, stuffy nose, sore throat, cough and fever.
Hydrochloric Acid (HCl): My flu prevention protocol is typically required once a year, but if you develop flu-like symptoms, another injection may be administered to fight the virus.
