Well, the flu is back, and it might be H1N1, it might be H2N3. Either way, it's landed and it's yucky. A few years back when H1N1 hit, we had very few cases in our clinic using a protocol of Elderberry extract, Probiotics, good hygiene, and dietary modification.
- Elderberry was proven to bind to and prevent H1N1 infections in vitro, according to a 2009 study published on NCBI/PubMed.
- Probiotics enhance the gut-associated lymphatic tissue, thereby increase immune function.
- Good hygiene goes without saying, but seriously: WASH YOUR HANDS and DON'T SKIMP ON SLEEP!
- Keep your sugar consumption very low, and avoid known food sensitivities.
With these in mind, stay healthy...and come see me if you're not!
