Ten Steps To Strengthen Immunity to H1N1

  • Vitamins. Those that are clinically proven to increase immunity include Vitamin C, D, Zinc, Beta carotene, and probiotics. For dosages sufficient enough to protect you from the Swine Flu, consult your homeopath as these are generally much higher than the usual RDA.
  • Homeopathic Constitutional Treatment – individualized prescription of a single homeopathic medicine that matches your body’s unique make-up. Constitutional care can both prevent and treat illness while strengthening your immune system.
  • Oregano oil, elderberry extract and colloidal silver (all potent natural antivirals).
  • Water (8-10 glasses per day).
  • Generous amounts of raw or lightly steamed fruit and veggies, fresh juices, fresh garlic and ginger.
  • Elimination of refined, processed, fried and sugary foods, avoid dairy if you are sick (it increases mucus in the body, slowing down the body’s ability to eliminate the virus).
  • Sleep (7-10 hours/night).
  • Stress reduction (through massage, shiatsu, counselling, reiki, yoga, meditation).
  • Moderate exercise at least 3 times per week.
  • Hygiene (washing hands, doorknobs and other common surfaces regularly).

If you aren’t able to nip your symptoms in the bud, and you develop a full blown flu, consult your homeopathic doctor for a flu medicine that matches your specific symptoms.
