Cold and flu season is upon us! Here are some available options to treating your illness that we carry in our office to be picked up:

The following are usually best if started within three days of the onset symptoms (sore throat, nasal congestion, sinus/ear pressure or pain, cough):

- High dose Vitamin D3 : 50,000 IU Take 2 caps daily for 3 days only. Stop your usual vitamin D3 dose, then resume once finished with high dose treatment. (This helps to boost your immune system).

- Viracid : We have two options for usage. Either take 2 caps 3 times daily for 2 days OR take 2 caps per hour until pack is gone. (This helps your body fight viruses that can cause colds and flu). *MUS

T be started within the first 48-72 hours of onset of symptoms* Take in conjunction with Vitamin D3 high dose.

-If accompanied by body aches or fever, add on Essential Defense 1 cap three times daily for 2 days as well. (This helps calm the cytokine response (aches, chills, fever).


V-Clear EPs Syrup

: (This is a homeopathic formula to help shorten the duration and reduce the severity of upper respiratory infections) Best used if beginning symptom is a cough.
