Cold And Flu Season - What Do You Take?
0

7 posts in this topic

The cold and flu season is here and I have come down with a lovely case of the flu . Dragged myself to Whole Foods yesterday to try and find some products for relief and found most have gluten, lactose, maltodextrin, etc.

What have you found that helps relalive symptoms and is gluten-free and lactose free?

Thanks for sharing!

In the United States, maltodextrin is safe so you can cross that off your no-no list. :)

If you're looking for natural remedies, Nature's Way Sambucus (black elderberry extract), Umcka and Nutribiotics' grapefruit seed extract are staples in our home during cold and flu season. Also, we up our intake of Vitamin C, D3 and L-Lysine.

Hyland's Flu Care is also good, but I don't think it's lactose-free. And Sinupret is really good for upper resp. illness.

We also use several OTC meds if the need arises, but we try to treat it naturally first.

Thanks all. I had most of the natural remedies at home so I doubled up on those and will pick up the Vicks tomorrow. I am starting to feel somewhat human enough to venture to the store again!

if it were me, i would pound the ionized silver and GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract). both at whole foods.

ive used both to kill H.Pylori, a UTI, and a nasty sore throat.

they're both natural antibiotics, antimicrobial, antiviral with no side effects... just make sure you follow the directions because even tho they're natural, they're potent. GSE MUST be diluted properly, and the Silver should be Ionized... sometimes the Colloidal can turn you gray.

both are gluten free.

and SLEEP and plenty of LIQUIDS... i LOVE Lemonade when im sick.

feel better :)

After my white blood cell count decreased even more and I seemed to get one cold after another, my doc suggested arabinogalactin powder. I take a teaspoon dissolved in a cup of water 2x daily. Arabinogalactin is the source of echinechia, but works faster and better than any echinechia product I ever tried. Within 20-30 minutes after taking Arabino, my cold symptoms (runny nose, sinus pain, sore throat, etc.) completely disappear. However, arabinogalactin is a natural immune stimulant.

The only side effect is slight gas, because arabinogalactin is a source of prebiotics, which feeds probiotics. Many people initially get gas and bloating when they take prebiotics. However, after a week or so I adjusted and hardly notice any gas and have no bloating now.

I can't take flu shots, because I have a diagnosed egg allergy. Fortunately, I never got the flu even without taking flu shots. However, I was suffering through one continuous cold before I started taking arabinogalactin. Nevertheless, some brands are better than others in that you take less and get more immune stimulation.
