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.

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
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.
