‘Tis the season… for Colds and Flu!
Millie called me just the other day from Wisconsin - to say that lots of people were coming down with colds there and to stock up on Immune Boost and Vitamin C.
It’s that time of year folks - here is some information to help you keep yourself healthy while those around you are coughing, sneezing and snuffling.
First, make sure your immune system is in the very best shape possible:
- Get regular exercise: exercise stimulates the immune system. Just 10 minutes of good, all-out exercise each day is all it takes!
- Use immune-enhancing herbal formulas - Immune Support is one of the very best.
- Practice stress reduction.
- Use positive visualization and affirmations - Dr. Myatt’s Body / Mind video will help you develop this skill.
- Practice meditation or a relaxation technique.
Give your body the raw materials it needs to keep your immune system fit:
- Eat plenty of protein. The body needs generous protein for maintenance and repair.
- Avoid fruit juices and sugars - sugars suppress the immune system.
- Be sure to use a good multi-vitamin. Dr. Myatt’s MaxiMulti is the very best available.
- Drink 64 ounces (2 quarts) of pure water or herb teas (non-caffeinated) daily.
- Be well-rested.
If you do catch something, start Dr. Myatt’s Acute Immune Protocol right away.
The "acute protocol" should be started for all active infections: colds, flu, other respiratory, skin, dental and internal infections. In many instances, antibiotics are unnecessary. This protocol may also be used alone for acute infections.
- B.A.M. (Broad Anti Microbial): Suggested dose: 60 to 80 drops, 3 to 4 times per day. Take in a small amount (1 to 2 ounces) of water on an empty stomach (at least 15 minutes before meals or between meals).
- Immune Boost: 1 teaspoon, 3 to 4 times per day. Take with B.A.M.
- Bromelain: 2 caps, 3 to 4 times per day between meals.
- Vitamin C (buffered): 1,000 mg every two hours throughout the day.
- Whey protein: 2 scoops per day (more if desired). Try A SuperShake or Dr. Myatt’s Miracle Muffin with whey added!
- selenium: 1,000mcg per day until symptoms subside.
Immune Boost and B.A.M. are potent liquid tinctures that keep indefinitely, so I recommend having them on hand right now. Don’t wait until you need them to place an order! Those two days waiting for them to arrive can make the difference between having a full-blown cold or other infection or staying well! Bromelain, vitamin C and selenium also keep well and should be on hand in your medicine cabinet. I also recommend having a bottle of Inspirol inhalant on hand for colds and sinusitis. This super-powerful inhaler is hard to find in most health food stores but WOW! Does it do a great job of opening the sinuses and clearing your head and lungs!
With these items on hand, colds and other winter infections and ailments don’t stand a chance!
