Hi readers…be sure to read the previous blog post and Why Not, the Flu Shot. It has great info on how your immune system works in non-medical speak. That way you will better understand why your Naturopath gives you certain remedies or home treatments to do!
Battling sickness naturally doesn’t always mean “don’t take anything”. It just means, don’t take anything that will SUPPRESS your symptoms. Take things that will support your immune health, maturation and strength.
Some quick tips!
1. Come in for an Energy Wellness treatment. Dr. Wolford uses micro-current to help kill viruses, bacteria and other invading pathogens. VBP’s (viruses, bacteria and pathogens) can only live at certain energy wave lengths and when a micro-current is introduced at a frequency that is to high for the pathogen….the pathogen dies. Improving your health!
2. Herbal Tinctures, salves, poultices and teas. There are several top notch remedies available to help clear congestion, reduce body aches, settle upset stomachs and clear ear infections. Some herbs have an affinity to fight viruses, other bacteria and some are just immune supportive. Learn which remedy you need to support your health and prevent the flu as well as help the natural maturation of your immune system so it’s stronger the next time around!
3. Home made soups with anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, heat producing herbs to help fight infection. Support your fever by getting hotter. Support your body by filling up on nutrient rich foods to combat your illness. Support your body with nutrients and minerals naturally found in organic vegetables, organic chicken and bone marrow from bone marrow broth.
4. Sleep and NO T.V. is going to be your best friend during periods of sickness. I know we all like to bundle up watching movies, but the blue light of cell phones, T.V., computers and any electronic activates your pituitary gland telling your body “it’s not time to sleep”. But when you are sick, getting sleep is JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ordered! Rest. Let your body heal itself.
