48 Hour Cold & Flu Recovery Protocol
48 hour Cold & Flu protocol to feel better again
The cold and flu season is upon us and our customers are starting to look for natural ways to boost their immune system. Tried and true remedies like Echinacea, Goldenseal and Vitamin C are still very effective in increasing your body’s natural immune defenses.
The question I’m being asked more and more is: “Are they the best natural remedies to take once you’ve started to feel under the weather?”
My answer is that although I’ve seen Echinacea, Goldenseal and Vitamin C do wonders in making me feel better fast, I’ve found a even more effective and faster protocol to recover.
The protocol consists of three all natural supplements: Elderberry, Pelargonium Sidoides and Vitamin C. The supplement potency and purity are just as important for successful results as is the regimen.
Chicago Health’s Elderberry: Elderberry contains antioxidant flavonoids that protect cell walls against foreign substances – cold causing virus in our case.
Take 1 tablespoon every 3 hours. This interval is critical for quick recovery.
Pelargonium Sidoides: Clinically proven to relieve the cold symptoms and speed up recovery time by restoring mucus membranes to their healthy state.
Take 2 chewable tablets every 3 hours. This interval is critical for quick recovery.
Chicago Health’s Vitamin C with Rose Hips: Clinical studies show that intake greater than 200 mg. vitamin C per day reduced the duration and severity of common cold symptoms. Furthermore, separate clinical studies show that taking 500 mg. vitamin C per day reduces chances of getting a common cold by 50%.
Take 3 tablets per day during the cold and 1 per day as prevention.
The above regimen has become my default protocol every time I feel the first signs of a cold – sniffle, scratchy throat or a cough. If I start the regimen immediately after the first sign of a cold, adhere to taking above supplements every three hours, most often than not I feel back to normal within 24 hours. Nothing else I tried has worked with such certainty and speed.
I should also mention that I take our Chicago Health’s 35 billion probiotic religiously every night. More on probiotic benefits and choosing the right one for you in one of the next blogs.
Until then, stay healthy and if you have any questions, please email or call me; I would love to hear from you.
Thank you for reading.
