Cold and Flu SEASON!!!

Natural Remedies for Colds and Flu

Get ready for the cold and flu season. What you want to do is squash any bug that might try to make its home in you as fast as you can before it takes hold and replicates quickly. Now is the time to improve your immune system and prevent a cold or the flu bug from taking hold of your body.

You can make this healing soup in big batches and freeze some. Eat it often right now. I was inspired by Dr. Allyn who has opened her home for a monthly health meeting.  This week she served this soup at the end of the meeting. This is my version. This soup is rich in beta carotene—great for the immune system. The ginger and turmeric are anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial. And it’s also delicious! Bone broth is healing for the gut. Hope you enjoy!

Earache Remedy

I discovered this remedy from my friend Andrea. It works wonders for an earache. I came home from Houston having spoken at the Healing Strong 10th Anniversary Conference. The decent coming into Phoenix was particularly hard on my right ear. I ended up with a very painful earache. With this remedy, it was gone in two days.

Bake half a peeled onion at 350 for about 20 minutes. Let cool enough to tolerate the onion sitting on your ear. Lie on your side with the painful ear on the top side. Place the onion over your ear and hold it in place. It’s very soothing. But it also is very healing. Your pain should subside right away. I had to do this three times to get it to completely go away, but each time I was so much better.

The Garlic Cure

If you feel like you’re coming down with something, finely chop 1 clove of garlic. Divide it into 3 or 4 parts and place it on a spoon. Swallow without chewing—then it won’t affect your breath.

This is a natural antibiotic—a superbug killer!!!


Emulsified oil of oregano by Biotics

You can suck on this tablet like a lozenge. It is very hot to the taste and it works for any upper respiratory issues.

Immunize with NAC

Among N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) many benefits are one that’s particularly timely: It may help relieve chronic respiratory conditions — which preliminary research suggests could play a pivotal role in supporting, preventing, and treating those with COVID-19.”It has shown the ability to block the attachment of damaging proteins (like the ones with the spikes)  to receptor sites. If they can’t attach, the damage they can do is greatly reduced. It is also becoming apparent that the jab is not protecting people. Statistics coming in show that a large number of people who got the shots are getting various strains of COVID. And what are you going to do? Keep getting boosters for the rest of your life? It’s time to build up your immune system.


If the immune system can’t stop a virus from replicating, it goes into overdrive and ramps up inflammation, especially in the lungs. This is what causes viral pneumonia. One of the fierce reactions to Covid-19 is an over-reactive immune response causing severe respiratory infection. A study from Ohio State University shows that zinc “helps control infections by gently tapping the brakes on the immune response in a way that prevents out-of-control inflammation that can be damaging and even deadly.” https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/02/130207131344.htm  Ginger is rich in zinc. Add it to all your juices.


One of the most well-studied attributes of quercetin, however, is its antiviral capacity, which has been attributed to three main mechanisms of action:

  • Inhibiting the virus’ ability to infect cells                      
  • Inhibiting replication of already infected cells                     
  • Reducing infected cells’ resistance to treatment with antiviral medication

Vitamin C

A scientific study reported flu and cold symptoms in the test group decreased by 85% compared with the control group after the administration of megadose Vitamin C. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10543583)

A study in China found that vitamin C, which is an antioxidant, may help prevent cytokine-induced damage to the lungs. Cytokines are small proteins released by cells, which trigger inflammation and respond to infections, according to MedicineNet author William C. Shiel Jr., MD, FACP, FACR. Severe lung inflammation with COVID-19 may result in respiratory distress and even death.

The clinical trial description states that vitamin C reduces the inflammatory response, and both prevent and shorten the duration of the common cold. The description further states that insufficient vitamin C is related to an increased risk and severity of influenza infections. The team aims to see if vitamin C has similar effects against viral pneumonia associated with COVID-19. https://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=228745

Vitamin D3 with vitamin K

Vitamin D has been shown to have a protective effect against Covid-19. Dr. JoAnn E. Manson, professor of medicine and chief of the division of preventive medicine at Harvard Medical School points out that your vitamin D status may in fact play an important role in your risk of developing COVID-19, as well as the severity of the illness. Vitamin D is important for innate immunity and boosting your immune function against viral diseases. It can lower inflammation and can be important in respiratory response to viral infection particularly the cytokine storm associated with COVID-19. Three South-Asian studies showed people with serious COVID-19 infection are far more likely to have insufficient levels of vitamin D compared to those with mild illness.

Shelter in place indoors all the time is not protective when it comes to prevention.  We need sunlight to produce vitamin D.  It is also recommended that you eat vitamin D-rich foods such as fatty fish like salmon, fish oil, sunflower seeds, and eggs. However, for many people, supplementation is imperative since statistics show that 42% of Americans are deficient. If you are deficient, 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 be taken daily. According to Irish researchers, “It is time for governments to strengthen recommendations for vitamin D intake and supplementation, particularly when under lockdown.”
