FLU SHOT! TO DO OR NOT TO DO? Find out your options

With the cold weather upon us the question I get asked almost daily is what to do for flu prevention.

Although a lot of people chose to get the conventional flu shot, many still get sick. Patients who work in the health care field often are encouraged to get flu shots at work.

It is all nice and fine to take the usual Echinacea, Vitamin C and herbs to boost your immune system but it is not specific for flu. A few years ago a great option has come on the Canadian market. An Italian Homeopathic Company “GUNA” specializing in Physiological Regulating Medicine (PRM) has developed a product designed to work with or without the traditional flu shot. Its preparation is comprised of many different ingredients taking into consideration genetic variability of flu viruses from year to year, helping to guard against relapses, as well as helping with the flu symptoms if you happen to come down with some symptoms after all.

The remedy is GUNA-Flu and it is amazingly easy to use. It is sold in a pack of six weekly doses. Designed to be taken once a week for six weeks. Because our immunity tends to decline over time, it is advisable to repeat the second six-week regiment 45 days after the first set of six is done.

Guna-Flu is effective and can be used by all ages including young children and those who would typically be advised against a standard flu shot. For those patients with weakened immunity, chronic fatigue or otherwise compromised immune status, Guna-Flu can be a safe and effective alternative. For those choosing to do a regular flu shot, adding Guna-Flu will give them complete protection.

Guna-Flu not only helps fight off the infection, but also prevents virus replication once its already in our cells, it moderates inflammation and muscle pain so often associated with getting the flu. It is wise to take one dose of GUNA-Flu every 6 to 8 hours at the first onset of symptoms for up to 24 hours. This will often be enough to stop your flu in its tracks.

To further increase cold and flu protection, I recommend adding CITOMIX to the mix. It is a homeopathic remedy that stimulates our immune response to viruses of many different types including the Herpes virus that so famously gives us cold sores. Taken once a day for 6 weeks, it will further improve your chances of staying healthy.
