Healing from the Flu & Common Cold
- Get extra chiropractic adjustments that will help release the innate intelligence of the body and improve
- Get extra rest – healing happens during sleep and when are immune systems are challenged we need extra sleep.
- Eat only nutrient dense foods, and only the amount you feel you need. Do not force yourself to eat, if you are not hungry don’t eat.
No Sugar Including Orange Juice
- The energy that would normally be used for digestion will be used for the healing process. (Personally I have found, a 1-day water fast, along with the above, to be extraordinarily powerful.)
- Keep a positive mindset – focus on how amazing it is that God has given you a self healing body, and that symptoms are a way of God telling you to slow down and allow time to heal.
- Braggs Raw Apple Cider Vinegar 1 teaspoon per hour. If feel too much warmth in stomach then stop
- Ask me about Natural Whole food supplements that can be used to up-regulate your immune system
- Acupressure points – gently press for 5 – 10 seconds on each cheek bone and then on each eyebrow. You may do this several times but be sure to be gentle.
- Sinus flush system – from simple to intricate these sinuses irrigation systems give relief to hundreds of my patients. I recommend using a mix of 1 teaspoon of sea-salt to every 4 ounces of filtered water. This often gives relief when you have that annoying postnasal drip. A great one is called Neil-Med Sinus Rinse
- Apple cider vinegar – great mucous cutter! Minimally 1 teaspoon in 4oz of water. Gargle 3 mouthfuls of mixture each hour than spit it out. Don’t swallow the gargled mixture, because the ACV will draw out the bad stuff. After throat feels better gargle every 3 hours.
- Salt water – gargle several times per day (Apple cider vinegar is better but this will work)
- Chamomile tea – this tea has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties and sooths a sore throat
- Herbal Throat Spray- Ask me about a natural herbal spray that works wonderfully
- Sore throat / cough drops – BE CAREFUL HERE! These do have sugar so only use if an emergency
