Nutrition and Supplements
Probiotic supplement (containing Lactobacillus acidophilus), 5 - 10 billion CFUs (colony forming units) a day. Probiotics, or “friendly” bacteria, help maintain gastrointestinal health and can help offset some of the side effects of taking antibiotics, such as diarrhea and yeast infections.
Beta-glucan, a type of soluble fiber, may also be helpful in reducing inflammation..
The use of herbs is a time-honored approach to strengthening the body and treating disease. Herbs, however, can trigger side effects and can interact with other herbs, supplements, or medications. For these reasons, herbs should be taken with care, under the supervision of a healthcare practitioner.
You may use herbs as dried extracts (capsules, powders, teas), glycerites (glycerine extracts), or tinctures (alcohol extracts). Unless otherwise indicated, you should make teas with 1 tsp. herb per cup of hot water. Steep covered 5 - 10 minutes for leaf or flowers, and 10 - 20 minutes for roots. Drink 2 - 4 cups per day. You may use tinctures alone or in combination as noted.
Green tea (Camellia sinensis) standardized extract, 250 - 500 mg daily, for antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and heart health effects. Use caffeine-free products. You may also prepare teas from the leaf of this herb.
Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) standardized extract, 40 - 80 mg three times daily, for antioxidant and heart health support. Ginko can increase the effects of certain blood-thinning medications; talk to your doctor if you take blood-thiining drugs such as warfarin (Coumadin)..
Cat's claw (Uncaria tomentosa) standardized extract, 20 mg three times a day, for inflammation and antibacterial or antifungal activity.
Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum), 150 - 300 mg two to three times daily, for inflammation and for immunity. You may also take a tincture of this mushroom extract, 30 - 60 drops two to three times a day.
Olive leaf (Olea europaea) standardized extract, 250 - 500 mg one to three times daily, for antibacterial or antifungal activity and immunity. You may also prepare teas from the leaf of this herb.
Garlic (Allium sativum), standardized extract, 400 mg two to three times daily, for antibacterial or antifungal and immune activity.
Few studies have examined the effectiveness of specific homeopathic remedies. Professional homeopaths, however, may recommend treatments for Lyme disease based on their knowledge and clinical experience. Before prescribing a remedy, homeopaths take into account a person’s constitutional type -- your physical, emotional, and intellectual makeup. In some cases, such as Lyme disease, a professional homeopath may prescribe specific remedies without considering the individual's constitutional state. Such remedies for Lyme disease include:
Borrelia burgdorferi nosode

7: Feed Your Fighting Force!
If you’re already sick, there’s no need to take it lying down. Being proactive will shorten your downtime considerably and make it less likely that you will pass your illness on to your family, friends or co-workers.
Feed your body’s fighting force with any of the following herbs alone or in combination. They are taken different ways – in your food, as a tea, as capsules, or all of the above.
Astragalus Root: increases activity of killer T-cells (the body’s first line of defense), macrophages and phagocytes
Cayenne Pepper: reduces fevers and stimulates blood circulation
Echinacea: stimulates the immune response by increasing T-lymphocytes, macrophages, and interferon activity
Garlic: is anti-microbial and anti-fungal
Lomatium and Larch (Larix): destroy viruses by interfering with certain processes necessary for viral replication and directly stimulate phagocytosis (literally, eating of (bad) cells)
Olive Leaf Extract: supports the immune system and promotes beneficial microflora. Olive leaf also contains bioflavonoids which increase its natural anti-viral activity.
Oregano Oil: is a powerful antibacterial agent effective in killing many types of bacteria that cause upper respiratory and intestinal infections.
Licorice*: is very effective in killing viruses, including Herpes and Epstein-Barr viruses – it prevents the formation of certain viral proteins, and helps kill them in the cells where they replicate. Licorice tea can be a delicious part of your antiviral program. * Caution – in sensitive people licorice can increase blood pressure.
Maitake and medicinal mushrooms: increases natural killers cell’s action to actively destroy infectious agents and also cells infected with viruses and intracellular bacteria. They also play a very important role in detecting and destroying cancer cells.
Botanical medicines can be safely combined with other immune enhancing substances for quicker recovery.
8: Maintain Your System
Plant sterols and sterolins can play a very important action in immune modulation. They enhance your immune system’s ability to respond flexibly and adequately to acute challenges. Due to this immune balancing effect phytosterols have some marvelous side effects. They may reduce symptoms of joint pain and stiffness, have been shown to increase T- cell proliferation by an average of 58%, support healthy prostate function, and assist in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
The thymus gland, located right behind the breast bone, plays a very important role in the maturation and programming of T lymphocytes. T cells play a very important role in recognizing and signaling the attack when infectious agents are present, but also in ensuring that your immune system does not attack your body – something that happens in auto-immune diseases.
Maintain your immune system by increasing your intake of phytosterols - eat more plant based foods. They may also be taken as supplements. Ginseng** and Astragalus are plants you can use longer term for enhanced immunity.
Thymus derived proteins are clinically very helpful in supporting the immune system during acute challenges and in ensuring that a competent cell mediated immune reaction is mounted. ProBoost contains thymic fractions that enhance immune reactions to all infectious agents.
**Even though ginseng is generally a very safe all over hormonal and body tonic, it may increase blood pressure in rare cases.
9: Boost by Breathing
Breathing not only keeps you alive, but is a wonderful nervous system regulating tool. Breathing is also unique in that it is an automatic body function we have almost complete control over. Certain breathing patterns have been associated with significant increases in immunity.
Action Tip: To increase oxygen to your body and brain and get rid of metabolic wastes: Place your left hand on your stomach, with the center of your palm over your belly button. Place your right thumb on the pulse of your left wrist, and note your pulse rate, rhythm, and amplitude. In your mind’s eye, locate three parts of the torso: belly, lower lungs, and upper lungs. Breathe into the belly, gently filling it, then move the breath into filling the lower lungs, then all the way up under the collarbones into the upper lungs. Exhale slowly with one long breath. Try to have your exhalation time twice as long as inhalation time. Repeat 6 times, and then breathe regularly. Be conscious of pulse rate, rhythm, and amplitude and notice the difference. What a great in-and-out-of-office stress buster this is, and no one will know when you are doing it.
Avoid chronic disease, just breathe!!
10: Heal with Homeopathy
Homeopathic medicine is one of the most effective and safe ways to focus your immune surveillance on the specific challenges winter brings. Homeopathic medicine has been in use for over 200 years, and is well tried and trusted, having proved itself in many influenza and other infectious disease epidemics. These potent medicines are very affordable, and can be considered a “natural” flu shot. This non-chemical medicine can be administered either by mouth or through an injection to both prevent and fight the flu.
Try general homeopathic immune boosting and flu preventive medicines like Ferrum phosphoricum, Engystol and GrippHeel in combination, Influenzinum, Oscillococcinum, or Dolicoccil as an effective safe flu preventative measure and treatment that leaves no chemical residue in the body.
Hope you are also looking forward to the transition of the season with immune readiness.
