Homeopathic Flu Prevention: Influenzium 9ch

Categories: Flu, H1N1

Another way to protect yourself from the flu is with Boiron Homeopathic remedies called Influenzium 9ch.  Influenzium 9ch is made from the updated influenzium vaccine. 

Dosage: 1 single dose tube per week for five weeks.  The best time to do it is in the fall, but it would still be a good idea to start now.  It is better to protect yourself at some point rather then not at all.  This treatment can be given to people of any age.  For young children dissolve the tube in some water.

Clinical evaluation in influenzal infection:

A clinical study was done on 100 patients.  They were followed during 2 winters and they were tested using the preventitive Influenzium 9ch. 

Results: Before the treatment 82% of the people involved had one episode of influenza each winter.

1st winter: 78% had neither influenza or a cold.  11% had a slight winter rhinitis with no influenza and 11% had influenza or a cold.

2nd winter: 85% had neither influenza or a cold. 9% had a slight winter rhinitis with no influenza and 6% has influenza or a cold.

There is also another homeopathic approach called Thymuline 9ch which is used to prevent H1N1.  There are many things you can do to better your health and keep you free from the flu.  These products are available at Alive Health Centre, Supplements Plus and Morning Sun.   We will see you soon!

H1N1: Protect Your Family’s Immune System Naturally

Categories: H1N1, Immune System

Phyllis A. Balch, CNC wrote: “Modern conventional medicine battles disease directly by means of drugs, surgery, radiation, and other therapies, but true health can be attained only by maintaining a healthy, properly functioning immune system.” Both conventional medicine and preventive medicine have their place, but when it comes to your immune system you only have one and you need to protect it.  With a weakened immune system, conventional medicine will be not as useful for you later down the line.

Where to start?

Vitamin C Alive Brand 1000mg Timed released.  Vitamin C is the single most important vitamin for the immune system.  First of all vitamin C should be taken with bioflavenoids to enhance its natural absorption and the Alive Brand has this combination.  Vitamin C is essential for the formation of adrenal hormones as well as the production of lymphocytes.  It also combats against viruses and bacteria.

Oil of Oregano the Joy of the Mountain brand is a favourite when it comes to protecting your natural immunity.  It has vitamins and minerals, but most importantly it contains thymol and carvacrol, which are the compounds that discourage the growth of harmful microrganisms, parasites, and viruses.  Not only does Oil of Oregano help your immune system, it also is great for infections, candida, muscle pain, joint pain, digestive health and inflammation.  If you do not want to get Oil of Oregano in liquid form, you can also get it in capsule form by Nature’s Way.

These are just a couple of ways to get started.  Come into any of the Alive, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus locations for further help on how to maintain your immune system!

H1N1 Flu Virus Facts

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, the H1N1 flu virus officially emerged in April of 2009.  The H1N1 flu virus is grabbing more attention by governments around the world because it is a new strain of influenza.  Whenever there is a new influenza it means that people do not have a solid natural immunity to the flu virus and this is one of the reasons why the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared it a pandemic influenza virus.  There is much debate on the H1N1 virus.  Some people feel it is nothing to worry about, while others are very scared and uncertain about how to prepare themselves.  Regardless of where you stand this article is about making sure you know what you can do to prevent getting H1N1 flu virus, the regular seasonal flu, or even a common cold.  The first step is to stay positive as well as stress free about this situation and be proactive about our health!

There are many more products at Alive, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus that will balance or boost your immune system.  You do not have to use all of them, but using a few at once is not too much.  Also some products may be more fitting for certain people.  For example, Vitamin C is a staple that everyone should have, but when looking for something else to take on top of that depends on if you are a liquid, capsule or chewable person.  Some people do not like liquid such as the Oil of Oregano, but it does come in capsule as well.  Red Reishi is also in capsule form and you only need to take one a day with Vitamin C for the best absorption.  Or if you have a child in school that you want to protect they would use Colostrum because it comes in many forms such as, lozenges, powder or capsule.   Also Colostrum is perfectly safe for children and it tastes great!
