We are in it – cold and flu season!
It’s the middle of winter, the holiday season, and whether it’s a cold with a runny nose, sinus, or the typical winter flu, boosting our immune system has become a hot topic, and with good reason.
A healthy immune system is much better equipped to defend you from the effects of cold and flu and can help prevent a simple sore throat or stuffy nose from becoming a viral or bacterial infection.
But what is the best way to boost your immune system so that you are prepared for any nasty bugs that come your way?
Are there any supplements you can take to prevent colds and flu?
What are the best natural cold and flu remedies?
Keep reading for everything you need to keep yourself healthy (naturally) this cold and flu season.
Basic Preventative and Reliable Cold & Flu Supplements
The following supplements boost the immune system for everyone, regardless of age, sex, health profile, and type of infection including viral, bacterial, or fungal. These supplements are my number one go-to remedies every cold and flu season.
Accelerated Colloidal Silver™ is both a physical product with the smallest silver particle size possible, as well as an energetic product that has the frequency of silver added to the solution, in addition to healing codes to boost the immune system and devitalize foreign pathogens using Scalar technology.
Scalar technology not only allows for a more “charged” silver with a higher energy potential but has the benefits of both particles and information of silver, creating a true infoceutical product.
Accelerated Colloidal Silver™ is programmed with frequencies to:
- Clear emotional and physical shock from the body
- Improve thymus health
- Improve lung function
- Devitalize viruses
- Devitalize bacteria
Acceleradine® Iodine provides a range of health benefits, serving as an antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic agent, while also promoting metabolism and thyroid health. The thyroid is the master endocrine gland, controlling the immune system, hormones, fat burning, energy and more. It is one of the only supplements that triggers healthy apoptosis for DNA repair, alleviating symptoms from the Spike Protein, and stabilizing DNA to prevent prion activation. Additionally, it aids in devitalizing various viral infections.
The negative charge of Acceleradine® Iodine plays a crucial role in neutralizing the positive magnetic charge inherent in toxins, such as graphene oxide, spike proteins, aluminum, and radiation. Notably, graphene oxide can generate a potent magnetic field, and Acceleradine® Iodine stands out as the only monatomic iodine with 100% absorption, charged with Scalar frequencies to effectively detoxify graphene oxide and other heavy metals and radiation. It actively stimulates body systems targeted by spiked proteins.
Moreover, Acceleradine® Iodine contributes to a remarkable increase in ATP (adenosine triphosphate) within cells, elevating the count from 2 to 36. ATP serves as true cellular energy, and with this increase, overall immune system strength, energy levels and metabolism experience a significant boost.
Accelerated Colloidal Nasal Spray™ is twice as concentrated as the Accelerated Colloidal Silver™ and enhanced with Scalar frequencies to target:
• Blocked and stuffy noses
• Bacterial infections
• Current viruses
MyVitalC is not Vitamin C, but rather ESS Carbon 60. It is a powerful antiviral and anti-bacterial supplement. It stops the cytokine storm associated with the current virus and Spike Protein.
A rat study revealed that supplementation with ESS60 could extend lifespan by up to 90 percent compared to the control group. ESS60 demonstrated potent antioxidant properties, combatting the adverse effects of free radicals and oxidative stress through a robust “free radical scavenging mechanism”; this has a strong impact on boosting the immune system.
Additionally, ESS60 exhibited potential in inhibiting cancer cell proliferation and impeding tumor growth. The supplement also showcased protective effects on the liver by promoting cell growth, fortifying essential body systems, and acting as a potent antioxidant against free radicals, contributing to an increase in lifespan.
By reducing oxidative stress, ESS60 demonstrated the ability to inhibit TNFalpha and IL-1, both responsible for inflammation in the body, including joint inflammation. The molecular structure of ESS60 in olive oil was found to assist in reducing inflammation associated with arthritis and other joint disorders.
MyVitalC, containing ESS60, has been shown to enhance sleep, crucial for immune system health, as insufficient sleep leads to oxidative stress and inadequate repair within the body. Moreover, it exhibited potential in regenerating new neurons, offering potential benefits in addressing brain diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Accelerated Keto® puts you into ketosis within 30 minutes.
Ketosis triggers improved immune strength, detoxification, healing of the gut, reduction of inflammation, and reversal of most chronic diseases.
When coupled with intermittent fasting and a low-carb diet, the body increases its ATP production, clears detoxification pathways, mobilizes liver fat and visceral body fat, cleanses the liver, supports healing, and improves the immune system.
Quintessential .9 is a pure natural isotonic seawater and springwater trace mineral and electrolyte replenishment supplement.
A 2013 study titled Marine Therapy And It’s Healing Properties conducted by Juan Alberola and Francisco Coll, showed Quintessential .9 seawater helps heal the body with proper hydration of the cells. It is composed of the exact balance of minerals as our own blood plasma. Hydration and nutrition are essential for optimizing the immune system.
Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® provides 2,000 IU per drop of vitamin D3 in a micro-emulsion form designed for improved absorption and utilization. A significant number of individuals in the United States do not naturally produce enough vitamin D to meet standard physiological needs.
Glutathione is the master antioxidant, and known to boost the immune system and the body’s detoxification.
The Lifewave Glutathione Patch increases glutathione by 300% in 24 hours. When it is worn with the Lifewave X39 Patch, glutathione production increases to 400%.
X39 is a stem cell activation patch designed to stimulate the production of our own stem cells by elevating the GHK-cu peptide, fostering regeneration, immunity, and repair. This unique peptide has the capability to reset 4000 genes to a more youthful state, contributing to collagen repair in all tissues. Additionally, it activates stem cell production, promotes apoptosis of diseased and cancer cells, and deters the metastasis of cancer cells.
X39 helps with enhancing the immune system, improving mental clarity, reducing pain and inflammation, accelerating wound healing, improving sleep, and reversing cellular aging.
GABA is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it blocks, or inhibits, certain brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous system. When GABA attaches to a protein in your brain known as a GABA receptor, it produces a calming effect. This can help with feelings of anxiety, stress, and fear.
As it relates to the Spiked Protein that has been shown to disrupt a cascade of neurotransmitters, GABA may help stabilize and normalize those neurotransmitters. Furthermore, it protects the liver and kidneys, modulates insulin resistance, lowers blood glucose, helps insomnia, and helps restore hormonal balance.
Serramend is a naturally occurring proteolytic enzyme that helps with inflammation, breaks down the Spike Protein, dissolves blood clots tissue and arterial plaque, thins lung secretions, and supports the breakdown of fibrin. It addresses sinusitis, sprains, strains, edema, venous inflammatory disease, asthma, cardiovascular disease, and chronic headaches.
In general, proteolytic enzymes could be useful applications in preventing viral entry into human host cells. This is because viruses utilize proteases to assist with viral entry and replication, maturation, and distribution of viral cells in the body.
Quercetin is a naturally occurring free radical scavenger that supports healthy seasonal immune system function. One of the side effects from the Spike Protein is increased histamine intolerance; Quercetin is known to help negate histamine intolerance. Laboratory studies have demonstrated that quercetin can also help to promote normal respiratory function.
Bromelain has a long history of use by herbalists and is known to help support a balanced immune system response to environmental challenges. Bromelain is a cysteine protease with anti-inflammatory properties. It has been found to alleviate pain and swelling and can help to reduce clotting and plaque build-up in vasculature.
Bromelain can help to build a robust immune defense by reducing inflammatory T-cells and cytokines in the body linked to respiratory diseases. This complementary combination may thus promote year-round respiratory health and support overall seasonal comfort.
Chinese Herbal Remedies for Cold, Flu & Acute Infections
Sometimes you need to get more specific with your acute viral or bacterial infection, and that is where Chinese herbal remedies become extremely effective.
According to Chinese medicine, the initial syndrome of colds and flu can be categorized into two different types of “cold invasion” in the body: “Wind-Cold“ or “Wind-Heat.”
Most individuals whether in summer or in winter, experience Wind-Heat as the type of wind-borne illness that leads to the common cold and flu.
An attack by Wind-Cold is characterized by chills, sneezing, cough, white or clear phlegm, severe aches and pains, and headache, but no fever or sweating.
On the other hand, Wind-Heat usually includes symptoms of the flu including fever, sore throat, cough, yellow phlegm, headache, and sweating. Your tongue is usually red and may have a thin white coating and your pulse is often floating and quick.
