Learn more about Native Remedies

Natural Remedies Can Help!

The major pharmaceutical companies are not the only ones with solutions to the 'flu virus. Herbalists and Naturopaths have had thousands of years experience in treating Here are some additional recommendations from Native Remedies:

1. There are some excellent herbal alternatives to the pharmaceutical anti-viral drugs which have been recommended by the CDC and the World Health Organisation. Native Remedies Immunity Plus Formula contains a selection of the most powerful and effective anti-viral herbs from around the world and can be of great benefit in boosting immune functioning to protect the system against the 'flu virus. It may also be used at the very first signs of 'flu or cold symptoms in order to stop the virus in its tracks. Immunity Plus has an added benefit over and above the pharmaceutical anti-virals in that it also contains antibacterial herbs which act as natural anti-biotics. This means that you would be less likely to develop secondary infections from the 'flu virus. Although the 'flu virus comes with very uncomfortable symptoms, it is the secondary infections like pneumonia and bronchitis that are potentially very dangerous.

How Do I use Immunity Plus?

According to Michele Carelse, Clinical Psychologist and formulator of Immunity Plus, it is best to take a 6 weeks course of Immunity Plus at the very beginning of winter. Thereafter 'booster' courses of about a week can be taken at eight - ten week intervals. At the very first signs of 'flu symptoms, take a 5 - 10 day course to stop the virus in its tracks. Michele also recommends using Immunity Plus for about a week to protect yourself if you are exposed to someone with the 'flu.

2. If you have been following an unhealthy lifestyle or have been exposed to environmental toxins, we recommend a three week course of our Detox Drops along with the Immunity Plus. Please be sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day during this time.

3. Studies have shown that people who are suffering from stress or depression will have lowered resistance to illness and are much more likely than others to become ill, especially with viral infections. If you are depressed or suffering from stress, protect yourself by taking a 6 month's course of our Mindsoothe Capsules, accompanied by the Native Remedies Triple Complex Nerve Tonic for extra protection.

Tips to help you boost your immune system and natural homeopathic alternatives to the flu vaccine.

Sustaining immunity is the key factor behind cold and flu resistance, so save yourself money and sickness in the long-term by implementing healthy habits now!

Consider an effective homeopathic flu remedy to the conventional flu vaccine, either in conjunction or used alone. Orally administered, homeopathic flu remedies may be used by all ages -- without the side effects and complications sometimes experienced by the conventional flu vaccine.

Don’t Just Wash Your Hands- Wash Them Right!

Liquid soap is preferred over bar soap, as bar soap tends to harbor viruses and bacteria.

Rub your hands vigorously together with warm water, scrubbing all surfaces, including wrists.

Dry your hands thoroughly, but consider how you do so -- Bacteria and viruses can live on hand towels and sponges for hours. If you have sick ones in the house, change towels frequently or use disposable options instead.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Most germs are spread through hand-to-hand contact, so become conscious of such habits.

If you have children, wash toys thoroughly in warm, soapy water to kill bacteria and germs. At work and at home, disinfect commonly used surfaces like keyboards, phones, doorknobs, counters, etc.

When possible, open windows to allow fresh air to circulate. Germs linger in stagnant air.

Try to quit smoking, as it irritates the respiratory tract, thus increasing susceptibility to illness-causing viruses.

Be considerate when you are sick, and stay home from work and keep the kids out of school or daycare.

Limit your alcohol consumption, as alcohol dehydrates the body and leaves you more vulnerable to infection.

Strive to obtain consistent, adequate sleep and regular exercise help to ward off infections.

Reduce stress by practicing relaxation techniques, exercising, or listening to music.
