There are 2 options this year for a natural approach to preventing the cold and flu.
The seasonal flu vaccine can be very effective at preventing 3 strains of the flu virus, which are predicted each year to affect the widest number of people.
However, even with the flu shot, you are left vulnerable to the over 300 other flu strains, as well as the over 200 viruses that cause the common cold.
So whether or not you choose to get the flu shot, other protections are needed to keep you healthy during the cold and flu season.
The most effective way to gain this protection is through strengthening your body’s natural defense systems by boosting the immune system.
Pascoleucyn Forte provides an opportunity for you to prevent colds and flus using a Natural Immune Booster.
Pascoleucyn Forte contains the herb Echinacea, which is used as a preventive treatment against the susceptibility to infection because it enhances the body’s natural defenses.
Pascoleucyn Forte also contains a homeopathic preparation combining several ingredients (Aconitum 4X, Bryonia 4X, Lachesis 13X and Sulfur Iodatum 4X) which, owing to their indications, are ideally suited for the treatment of inflammatory and febrile infections, especially for inflammation of the upper and lower respiratory tract.
It is a drinkable ampule that is administered starting at the end of October once per week for 10weeks. This should be taken about 30min before food.
Along with a Healthy Lifestyle, Vitamin D and a probiotic this is a very effective solution for flu prevention for the whole family.
Note – dosage is recommended ages 4 and up. Children 4-12 can share a drinkable ampule.
It is not recommended for those with auto-immune diseases (such as MS, AIDS, HIV), inflammatory connective tissue disorders (collagen disease), or progressive systemic diseases (i.e., tuberculosis, leukemia). Please inform the administering practitioner if you have ever experienced an allergic reaction to iodine, Echinacea or any other member of the daisy family or if you have diabetes.
Check with your ND if you have questions before using.
Another effective solution for flu prevention.
This is a homeopathic preparation that is taken once per month starting in October/November.
In addition to a healthy lifestyle, Vitamin D and a probiotic this makes another effective immune boosting strategy for those of all ages.
This product can be taken by infants, children and those who are unable to take Pascoleucyn.
I use this on my children, and for our 2 year old twins would have them split one vial once a month.
Because my 5 year old daughter is in school and has no contraindications, I would give her the Pascoleucyn as it has additional cold and immune support.
