Back when my husband was lucky enough to be employed, his employer would bring in the flu shots and give them to employees at no charge. The first year they offered the flu shots everyone including my husband got the shot, and then everyone got the flu! The next year the employer offered it again, and my husband said no thanks. But everyone else in his department got the shot and again they all came down with the flu again and shared it with my husband! You can’t tell me that the flu shot is safe! You can now conveniently get a flu shot at just about every store that has a pharmacy. How convenient.
For many years we have worked more and more on improving our diet, and I can honestly say that in the past ten years or so my husband and Irarely ever get sick! Dr Christopher taught that the best way to avoid health problems was to eat what he called the Mucusless Diet. That diet today is called a plant based diet, and more and more people are eating this way. Last week I gave a link to a free viewing of Food Matters. If you missed it, it is available on instant play on Netflix. They also have another great documentary on food called Forks Over Knives which talks about eating no more than 5% animal based foods to stay healthy. These are great videos proving how much diet makes a difference in our health and it is the best preventative medicine money can buy!
Back to the flu and any other gomboo you hope not to catch with the coming winter season. The first thing to do is stock up on a few great winter remedies. I like Christopher’s Immune System Formula, Infection Formula and the Glandular Massage Oil with X-Plague Essential Oil added in. Add up to 60 drops of the X-Plague into a 2 oz. bottle of Glandular Massage Oil. Any time you feel something coming on, rub the oil combo into your neck at the tonsil area and take some Infection Formula along with some Immune System Formula. The key is, right when you feel something coming on, you hit it with the herbs it before it develops. Take it every 2 - 3 hours to stop it dead in its tracks.
Another great combo is the Super Garlic Immune Formula, about the nastiest tasting thing on the planet earth, but oh so good for you! This is Dr. Christopher’s famous Anti Plague. I like t make my own and have for years. We now have the Anti Plague kit here at Herbs First and the recipe if you are so ready to have a grand adventure. If not, we sell Christopher’s Super Garlic Immune Formula, or Western Botanicals Anti Plague which comes in syrup as well as capsules. I like to keep the capsules on hand, as my husband is the only one in the family that can’t handle the syrup. I take the capsules as well, will interchange them with Christopher’s Infection Formula.
For the little people in the house stock up on Kid-e-Mune, Kid-e-Well and Nature’s Way’s Sambucus Syrup. These are all great tasting ways to help the kids stay healthy, in addition to diet! Use the Glandular Massage Oil/X-Plague on their neck/tonsil area too, they love the smell. Watch out for the sugar, I think it is the biggest culprit from Oct. 31 on into the new year.
When you plan ahead and have these great herbal formulas and oils in your home, you will have the upper hand in your family’s health.
