My BEST Cold and Flu Remedy + A Few More Tips to Boost Your Immune System!

Over the past couple of weeks there has been a lot of information posted on the internet about flu vaccines.  At the bottom of this post you will find the list of ingredients found in these vaccines as well as some interesting information to help you make up your own mind about these vaccines.

Personally, rather than opting for an inoculation, I think it's best to simply cooperate with the way your body functions and boost your immune system.  It's simply good common sense.  That way if you are exposed to any strain of bacteria or virus your body is ready to take it out!  

So today I want to follow up yesterday's post on oral health with a tried and true immune boosting elixir you can make in your own kitchen with ingredients you likely have on hand all of the time!


My BEST Cold and Flu Remedy!

Like all cold and flu remedies, this one works best when you start it as soon as you begin to feel any symptoms.  Then keep it going until you have had no symptoms for 48 hours.  This allows your immune system the support it needs to mount an adequate defense against the microbial invaders.

½ fresh lemon
1 teaspoon organic, raw honey
1 teaspoon parsley finely chopped
1 medium clove of garlic crushed or finely chopped
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 large pinch cayenne pepper
Boiling water (ionized pH 9.5 is best)

Squeeze lemon into a cup, add remaining ingredients, stir and cover with boiling water.  Cover and steep 10 minutes, or until it has cooled enough to drink it down rather quickly.

Repeat every 1-2 hours that you are awake until your symptoms are gone.  Then drink 2-3 cups per day for 2 additional days.

Trust me, this sounds a lot worse than it tastes!  In fact, some of my patients have told me they actually like it.

Each ingredient is there to boost your immune system so that it can burn out the invaders, so don’t leave anything out.  However if you are sensitive to cayenne you can start with a small pinch.  If you are a regular cayenne lover bump it up to ¼ teaspoon!

IMPORTANT TIP:  Never stop a fever unless it exceeds 105° F.  Your body uses this heat to incinerate the microbes!  When you have a fever it is a clear indication that your immune system is WORKING, so bundle up, drink plenty of liquids and rest.  Your immune system will reward you.



In my post yesterday I provided some interesting information on oral health, and I think this is an important step in warding off viral and bacterial infections.  Keep this in mind, if your mouth is a hotbed of bacteria, viruses and fungi it keeps your immune system so busy that it doesn't have the necessary tools to ward off an infection in your sinuses or your lungs - the very places these cold and flu strains love to attack.

The one thing I did not mention in my post was the effectiveness of using ionized water in your daily oral care routine.  Here is an excerpt from my booklet entitled, Ionized Water Protocols . . .





Protocol for Oral Health
Using these protocols on a daily basis will make your teeth and gums healthier than you’ve ever experienced. Inflammed and puffy gums will resolve, periodontal disease will begin to heal and your risk for cavities will be dramatically reduced. You’ll instantly know it’s working because your teeth will feel squeaky clean all day long!

Supplies
  • pH 2.5 strongly acidic water
  • pH 11.5 highly alkaline water
  • pH 9.5 drinking water
  • Toothbrush - preferably a Sonicare, available at most drug stores or visit their website at
    www.sonicare.com
  • Dental Floss
  • Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator - I did a test using a Waterpik and a Hydro Floss Irrigator and
    found the technology for the Hydro Floss to be superior. If you already own a Waterpik
    you will get good results as well. You can purchase one online at www.hydrofloss.com
  • Tongue Scraper . . . available at most drug stores or online. There are more traditional
Ayurvedic styles or more contemporary styles. Find the one that works best for you.

Before you Begin
Optimal results will always be achieved when you start with the cleanest possible teeth. This is a great time to make an appointment with your dentist or dental hygienist for a thorough clean- ing. Your oral health team can tell you if you have any periodontal issues. Simply match the protocol to your picture of oral health.

Routine Dental Care and Maintenance
  • Step 1 - Rinse with pH 2.5 strongly acidic water, scrape your tongue, rinse, scrape again.
  • Step 2 - Brush teeth with pH 2.5 strongly acidic water, repeatedly dipping your brush in
    the water.
  • Step 3 - Rinse again with pH 2.5 strongly acidic water.
  • Step 4 - Floss teeth then rinse one final time with pH 2.5 strongly acidic water.
  • Step 5 - Fill Hydro Floss reservoir with warm pH 11.5 strongly acidic water. Use according
    to manufacturer’s directions, making certain to flush under the gum line.
  • Step 6 - Retain the last mouthful that sprays out of the Hydro Floss and use as a rinse.
  • Step 7 - Rinse with pH 9.5 drinking water.

    Frequency
    Follow this protocol 1-2 times daily, once in the morning and again before bed is ideal and will provide you with optimal care for healthy teeth and gums, but it’s most important at bedtime. I also recommend adding step 5 from the Periodontal Protocol 1-2 times per week.

    Periodontal Disease Protocol
  • Step 1 - Rinse mouth with pH 2.5 strongly acidic water, scrape your tongue, rinse, scrape again
  • Step 2 - Brush teeth with pH 2.5 strongly acidic water, repeatedly dipping your brush in the water.
  • Step 3 - Rinse again with pH 2.5 strongly acidic water.
  • Step 4 - Floss teeth then rinse one final time with pH 2.5 strongly acidic water.
  • Step 5 - Fill Hydro Floss reservoir with warm pH 2.5 strongly acidic water. Use as directed
    making certain to thoroughly flushing under the gum line.
  • Step 6 - Retain the last mouthful that sprays out of the Hydro Floss and use as a rinse.
  • Step 7 - Fill Hydro Floss reservoir with warm 11.5 water. Use as directed . . . again make
    certain to thoroughly flush under the gum line. Retain the last mouthful of water from the
    Hydro Floss and use as a rinse.
  • Step 8 - Be certain to end with a final rinse using pH 9.5 drinking water

    Frequency
    Follow this protocol 2 times daily, in the morning and again before bed is ideal and will provide you with optimal care for periodontal disease. NOTE - If you have veneers, be cautious with Step 5 because it can result in pitting if the pressure is set too high.
