‘Tis the season!……….for the flu. That’s right, it’s flu season and you need to make sure you boost your immune system any way you can. While the flu vaccination is popular and simple, there is evidence that new flu strains have developed a “high level of resistance” to the virus. According to an article by Natural Health News, new strains of flu are resistant to the admantanes in vaccinations, and thus many people are seeking alternative ways to fight the flu. Natural remedies are beneficial not only for flu prevention, but also for boosting immunity and promoting natural wellness during flu season.
Natural Health News suggests various herbal remedies to fight the flu, such as peppermint tea, Echinacea, and garlic. However, some may remain unconvinced by the seemingly folksy nature of these methods, and the phrase “herbal remedies” can have the tendency, in some instances, to conjure images of peace pipes and witch doctors. While they can be quite effective and shouldn’t be ignored, there are alternative methods of flu prevention as well.
Vitamin therapy is an effective, natural solution, and has been proven to be successful in fighting the flu virus, according to a 1999 study. Vitamin C helps white blood cells to seek out and fight diseases such as the flu. At the Rothfeld Center, we offer intravenous nutrition infusion as a method of bypassing the digestive system, allowing the nutrients and vitamins to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream, and often resulting in immediate therapeutic response.
