Many people are concerned about the flu at this time each year. Fortunately, there are some simple things that we can do to significantly enhance our flu immunity during the flu season.
- Vitamin C – I recommend Radiant C at 1 teaspoon, 3 times daily. While this may appear to be a low dose, Radiant C contains a highly active amount of vitamin C in a complete form. It is literally a 10:1 ratio compared to pure ascorbic acid.
- Vitamin D3 – Vitamin D stimulates production of anti-viral peptides and a vitamin D carrier protein (GrMAF), which activates the macrophages of the immune system. Take 6,000 (3 drops) -10,000 (5 drops) IU daily. Your vitamin D levels should be close to 80-90 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml). I recommend Quantum Nutrition Labs’ D3 Gold.
- Children under two years of age should take 1/8th drop daily. Put 1 drop of vitamin D3 oil in one tsp of oil such as sesame seed oil or macadamia nut oil give 1/8th of the dropper each day.
- Children over two years of age to puberty should take ½ a drop by the above method.
- Mega Defense – This unique and powerful combination of Chinese herbs and NCD works dynamically and synergistically with vitamin D. Mega Defense, in addition to being antiviral, is anti-mutagenic, antiallergenic, anti-asthmatic, anti-inflammatory, which Is important for combating flu symptoms if one happens to get it. Take 2 capsules twice a day Monday through Friday. Rest on Saturday and Sunday.
- Illumodine – Iodine and particular this highly potent Illumodine has been regarded since the late 1800s as the most powerful antiseptic, not only against viruses but also against bacteria, fungus, and even malaria. It not only cleanses the lymphatic system, but also improves function of all endocrine glands, the brain, the heart, and the entire body. Illumodine is the most powerful form of iodine in the world because it is singlet-activated iodine. It also protects against radioactive I-131. Illumodine should be taken one hour after food, and 15 minutes or more before food.
- Children under two years of age should take 1 drop (in water) daily, working up to 1 drop (in water) 3 times per day.
- Children over two years of age should take 1 drop daily, working up to 3 drops, 3 times per day.
- Adults should start with 3 drops, 3 times daily, working up to 15 drops, 3 times per day.
- Mighty Mix – Mighty Mix is an essential aroma oil blend by Invincible Essence. This could be the best and simplest treatment and prevention for flu. For adults and children 7 years or older apply 5 drops on both soles of the feet once daily or at bedtime. Do it two times each day if flu symptoms are present.
- Influenzinum 1-M – Take 7 drops at bedtime for 1 week, before moving to 7 drops 1 time weekly.
For additional support during flu season, one may wish to take:
- Vitamin A – One should take 10,000 IU daily. For vegans we have a special vegan vitamin A called NutriSorb A (by InterPlexus).
- Oxygenated AGLA – This is a special form of oxygenated, scalar-activated silver. Take one Tablespoon daily. (Oxygenated AGLA is available at Dr. Cousens’ Online Store.
- Pleo Nota-Quent – Take 5 drops twice daily. This is a powerful German, homeopathic-like remedy. Pleo Nota-Quent is available for sale at the Tree of Life Center US.
- Mother Earth Minerals Zinc – Take 1 Tablespoon twice daily for immune system support. Zinc deficiency is often associated with a vitamin D deficiency.
- Carnivora – Carnivora, from the Venus flytrap plant, has many immune system stimulants. It may be one of the top immune activating extracts. Take 1 capsule every day of the flu season.
I recommend optimizing your sleep cycle during flu season. Sleep 7-8 hours nightly, and retire to bed by 10:30-11 pm at the very latest.
If, in spite of these precautions, one develops flu symptoms, one should:
- Increase vitamin A to 200,000 IU for 3 days. (Do not do this for more than 3 days.)
- Take Oxygenated AGLA at one Tablespoon hourly.
- Increase vitamin C to one teaspoon hourly, or until one feels the onset of diarrhea.
- Increase Pleo Nota-Quent to 5 drops every hour.
- Increase Mega Defense to one capsule hourly.
These simple steps can significantly protect you and/or ameliorate the flu symptoms.
All these protective supplements are available at Dr. Cousens’ Online Store.
Blessings to your enduring, radiant health,
