Holistic Approach to Treat and Prevent Flu and Colds

 
By Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J), D.N. Sc

 

The flu season starts to peak in November and continues to peak through April. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend getting your flu vaccine in the months of October and November in order to prevent flu and colds.

Many of my clients reported that they got sick after having a flu shot. Here are my recommendations to treat and prevent flu and colds via natural, drug-free, holistic approach without a flu vaccine:

 

1. Proper Hydration:

When you are dehydrated, your body “sewage system” is stagnated. All kinds of diseases can be incubated in that kind of unhealthy environment. How much fluid should you have everyday? Usually I recommend eight to 10 cups of fluid (each cup about 8 oz.) This may include caffeine-free herbal tea, purified drinking water, and soup. Choose the kind of herbal tea that not only hydrates you, but also removes toxins in your body.

 

2. Plenty of Rest:

Most people require seven to eight hours of sleep per day. If you are short of sleep because of a busy schedule or habitual insomnia, try my 10-minute meditation any time of the day to make up for some lost rest. Go to my website: www.drjsbest.

com to download this 10-minute meditation guide for FREE. This fast meditation guide is designed for people who are too busy, or too lazy, or both, to reduce day-to day stress. People who suffer from habitual insomnia need professional consultation to develop a healthy sleep pattern.

 

3. Avoiding Cold and Damp Environment

To combat this year’s “Global Freezing” climate, get a space heater to keep you dry and warm in the room where you work or rest. I got a space heater online for about $15. This is truly a lifesaver when you don’t want to incur a huge electricity bill for heating the entire home.

 

4. Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program

Whenever it’s possible, avoid sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, caffeine, alcohol, chemicals  and nicotine, because they are a favorite food for yeasts and parasites. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with the above no-no’s. If you follow my “Eight Commandments,” you will be able to prevent adding a new assault to your body. My yeast-free cookbook: Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking will guide you to learn more about what to eat, and what to avoid. The book may be available in your local libraries.

 

5. Herbal Therapy to Strengthen Your Immunity:

When your immunity is strong, yeasts, parasites, bacteria or viruses will not be able to cause havoc in your body. Your immune cells will act like a Pac Man to clean up these invaders before they have a chance to cause you illnesses. I recommend an herbal detox program designed to control the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites and remove the toxins in your body, so that you can keep your immunity strong. If your energy is low and your mental concentration is poor, I would suggest that you add a hormonal regeneration program. Proper herbal therapy will strengthen your immunity and help you fight flu and cold symptoms effectively.

 

6. Stress Reduction:

In addition to daily meditation, using my 10-minute meditation guide, prayers or chanting can be very effective in reducing stress. Prayers or chanting are like spiritual showers. If your physical body smells when you don’t take a shower everyday, then you should know that your spiritual being smells when you don’t pray or chant every-

day. Prayers are free! Keep praying or chanting everyday to reduce your stress and maintain your physical and spiritual well-being!

 

7. Daily Exercise

Regular exercise improves your blood circulation, transporting of nutrition, and secretion of endorphins. Endorphins are natural morphine produced within your body. You feel that you are in a calm yet high state without the influence of substance when you exercise. You can exercise anywhere. You do not need to go to the gym if you don’t want to. I usually do in-place jogging and meanwhile do my praying or chanting for more than 300 times everyday, rain or shine! 

If you easily catch the flu and colds whether it’s flu season or not, I would suggest that you consult with an experienced, spiritually-oriented health practitioner to remove the roots of the health issues.
