How to Beat the Flu: Simple, Natural Approach Does the Trick


By Dr. Mark Wiley, The Healthy back Institute

 



You think the flu is harmless? You're wrong. AIDS is considered by many to be the grimmest epidemic facing the world today. Yet, influenza kills nearly 10 times more people than AIDS does in any given year. In fact, influenza kills more people than AIDS, lung cancer and heart disease combined!

And here's a sobering thought: Every year you run a 50/50 chance of contracting this disease. You've probably had it before. Even many times before. Perhaps you even suffered from it last winter. Luckily, if you're reading this letter, you obviously survived.

The World Health Organization tells us more than 25% of the world's population gets hit with the flu virus every year—that's about 1.5 billion people! Now granted, most of those 1.5 billion will get better. That much you probably expected. But more than 15 million people will not. In fact, many of them are dead within a week of first falling ill.

The chilling truth about the world's deadliest disease

There are literally hundreds of thousands of different viral strains—each mutating and multiplying into killer bugs, some as quickly as once every 20 minutes!

That fact is chilling enough. And of course, the loss of life is the real tragedy. But among those who survive, the flu epidemic sickens enough of the U.S. workforce each year to drain more than $10 billion in lost wages and production from the U.S. economy. And again, that's just the loss here in the U.S.

Not to mention the money Americans spend trying to beat the sniffling, sneezing, aching, hacking, feverish symptoms of the disease—over $3 billion every year. That's many times more than the economies of some Third World nations. No wonder there are over 100 different brands of flu medicine.

Right now, all the over-the-counter flu drugs are pretty much the same. Drugs like Sudafed and Alka-Seltzer. Robitussin and TheraFlu, Dimetap and Nyquil. But not one of them actually prevents the flu. They all just treat symptoms. And you know by now that here at the Healthy Back Institute, we look to eradicate the "cause."

You may be thinking that a flu shot will get you through the season unscathed. Wrong! Flu vaccines are only 30% effective in preventing the virus. According to Dr. Judelsohn, Medical Director of the Erie County (NY) Department of Health, 30% of those vaccinated against the flu or pneumonia get no protection whatsoever from their shot.

The news only gets worse. Among the elderly or those suffering from health conditions that weaken the immune system, the flu vaccines may be useless up to 50% of the time.

Bu there is hope...

Prevention is the Key

While there's no way to completely protect yourself from the viruses that cause colds and flu, you can take all-natural measures to prevent them from nailing you. And strengthening your immune system is the way to do it.

I personally use a combination of Chinese patent herbal formulas to build my immunity and knock out cold and flu symptoms. These include Gan Mao Ling, Zhong Gan Ling, Chuan Xin Lian, and Yin Chiao tablets. Each of these can be purchased in Chinatowns nationwide, and are also easily found on-line through a Google search.

If a more mainstream approach is your cup of tea, consuming a hot cup of ginger green tea each day can do wonders in preventing this debilitating illness. Green tea is full of anti-oxidants and ginger is a diaphoretic (promotes sweating). Sweating out the dampness and phlegm that get infected and provide an environment for viruses to live... is essential to prevention.

Doubling the recommended daily doses of vitamin C and Zinc starting a month before cold and flu season will also boost immunity. Adding more garlic, especially aged garlic, to your diet is great. Garlic acts as an anti-bacterial... and can also be taken in supplement form.

Finally and most important: lower your stress. Stress is terrible for you, causing tight muscles, headaches, belly fat, high blood pressure... and weakens your immune system. In fact, nearly 75% of people who get colds each year are found to be under heavy levels of stress.

So relax, smile, eat some garlic, take some supplements... and you may be able to take a vacation from this year's cold and flu epidemic. Happy winter!

 


50 Years of Back Pain Gone in Just Days!

Unlike most treatments which only deliver temporary relief, if any at all, muscle balance therapy delivers lasting relief to 8 out of 10 people who use it because it addresses the underlying cause of the pain, not just the symptoms.
