Influenza (Flu)
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND


Also known as influenza, the flu refers to viral infections accompanied by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, malaise, body pain, and respiratory symptoms. The media is constantly warning people about flu epidemics to scare people into getting vaccines, but the truth is that very few people die of the flu. Most of the people who die of the flu are elderly or have compromised immune systems.

Besides, there are numerous effective natural remedies for the flu. For prevention, simply wash hands frequently and use Silver Shield Gel as a natural hand disinfectant. Take something to boost the immune system, such as Immune Stimulator or Ultimate Echinacea when the flu is "going around."

If you do get the flu try taking a good antiviral remedy such as Elderberry D3fense or Una de Gato Combination. Other great flu remedies include Silver Shield, HCP-X, FV and IF-C.

For settling the stomach flu, two of the remedies are ginger and peppermint essential Oil. For flu with aches and fever try APS II with white willow or yarrow. Other therapies and remedies for the flu include the following.
