Dr. Charschan’s cold survival kit now available in our offices
We are heading into cold and flu season. Doctors throughout the state are offering the flu shot, however, there is also a good likelihood you may experience one of the many other viruses and bugs out there so you need to be prepared.
One of the best ways is by using our cold survival kit. Through our new relationship with Integrative Therapeutics and Natures Way, we now can offer our cold survival kit in our offices. The kit comes with Esberitox, a clinically proven source of Echinacea with some other cold fighting herbs built right in as well as Natures Alive!, an excellent preparation of vitamin C powder. We have packaged these to be sold together for $50. One kit could likely last you the entire cold season this year. Get this now and be prepared.
Most people who have colds can benefit from this regimen.
1. Echinacea (helps fight cold viruses as the body is being attacked)
2. 5000 mg vitamin c powder – one level tsp taken with orange juice Amino Lysine 500mg
3. Amino Lysine 500mg
Take this as follows
At the onset of symptoms, take a tablet of Echinacea per ever two hours for 3-4 doses total. Echinacea is only effective at the onset of symptoms. If you are well into the symptoms, just begin dosing with vitamin C powder.
Vitamin C powder – take ever two hours. If you begin to get diahrea or feel gassy, stop taking it. This means you have saturated your body. Vitamin C powder acidifies your system and gives it a fighting chance. Typically, colds make your body basic. If you are on medications that are altering your body chemistry, check with your pharmacist first. You can then take doses of this periodically as the symptoms begin to abate.
Amino Lysine is anti viral and can be taken with the vitamin C powder. This product can be found at most health food stores however, it is not as essential as the Echinacia and Vitamin C powder
This regimen will shorten colds, get you feeling better faster. If you have a really nasty virus, you may find that it takes many doses of vitamin C to get to the point of diahrea or gassiness. If it is mild, you may reach this with one or two doses.
We are also carrying the Natures Way Nettle, which is a natural anti histamine. For only $12, this works well on allergies and may be a good substitute for cold medicines being used to help reduce the sneezing and a runny nose. While it has been proven to work for allergy symptoms, I have personally found it helpful during symptoms from a cold, and the constant sneezing and misery.
