Colds, Flus and sore throats

Original Question: ‘I have been continually plagued over the last six months with continual bouts of sore throats which turn to a cold and then if I’m unlucky go to the chest. I have had several courses of antibiotics, which help at the time but then the sore throat returns, usually within a couple of weeks. I am a school teacher so I know that my work environment is not helping……..I take Vitamin C and Echinacea but its obviously not enough to combat this cycle of infection. What else can I do as I do not want to continue the rounds of antibiotics’.

This sounds very typical of the many flu virus’ that can plague people during the winter. You are so right, it does not let go easily and will came back to haunt you if the body is not looked after sufficiently. These virus’ needs strong treatments but ‘natural treatments’ work well if used correctly.

Herbal blends and many natural treatments such as Vitamin C, Quercetin and Propolis extract can help tremendously.
Propolis extract is available from this clinic, Contact us.

Also, it is important to take Colloidal minerals, at least 1tbsp daily to help build the body’s immunity back up. These contain Zinc in good quantities which has direct anti-viral activity and is essential for immune system function.

Then of course REST. This is often the most difficult part of the treatment, but important and can make the difference between failure and success.

An older, but still very effective method of treating a sore throat is to make a lemon and honey drink. Use the rind plus the juice of a lemon, add boiling water and 1tsp of honey (Manuka if you have it), then a small amount (but as much as you can handle) of cayenne pepper. Mix all together and allow to cool. Sipping on this brew can make a world of difference to the sore throat as well as to any annoying cough.

This is just a snipet of what you need to know, so if you want to know more about this subject or have a personal question of your own, then please email me for a personal consultation, as all natural treatments are best if prescribed individually.
