Newly released data from the health technology company Kinsa Health revealed that Georgia is the sickest state in the nation with 7.78% of the population falling ill! In fact, they are also 115% sicker than state-level illnesses reported this time last year. Residents are experiencing symptoms like cough, fever and body aches as they fight this flu. Towns County, Raburn County, Stephens County, Forsyth County, and Banks County are among the sickest in Georgia. For more information see this AJC.com article.
Here at Quantum Alternative Health, we believe that strengthening the body through diet, nutrition, exercise is the best way to prevent illness. We do not “treat” or “medicate” through the use of pharmaceutical products; we use researched botanical products to work against the stresses our bodies have to deal with. The following are the products we recommend for this season of the year.
1. Biocidin LSF- Biocidin is a well researched, well-tolerated, and effective botanical blend with proven antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. It supports the body in fighting a wide range of things, including chronic infections, colds, and the flu.
2. Zinc-S- The human body needs zinc to activate T lymphocytes (killer T cells). T cells help the body in two ways:
-Controlling and regulating immune responses
- Attacking infectious or damaged cells.
Zinc deficiency can severely impair immune system function. Zinc is also used for hormone building and detoxing copper from the body
3. Dr. Recommends Viral Fuge-this product contains a combination of homeopathic remedies that support the body against viral invasion.
4. Dr. Recommends Flu-this contains a combination of homeopathic remedies that aid the body in fighting off all effects of the flu, from aching bones to inflamed mucus membranes.
5. Argentyn 23-Colloidal silver provides support for the immune system. It is thought to work by interfering with the enzymes that enable viruses, bacteria, and fungi to utilize oxygen. In more simple terms, using colloidal silver causes suffocation in pathogens. Studies have shown that using colloidal silver can reduce the amount of time a person experiences cold or flu symptoms. It has been shown to kill over 650 bacteria, fungus, viruses, and molds that have the potential to sprout diseases. Argentyn 23 is a unique colloidal silver product because it has a particle size of 0.8 nanometers unmatched by any other colloidal silver company. This minuscule particle size allows for easy absorption and excretion. This lower particle size allows for a greater surface area, the low concentration of 23 parts per million allows for a lower dose of the product to be more effective than brands containing 1,000 parts per million.
6. Vitamin D-this vitamin has many benefits, one of the benefits being dramatic immune boosting. Vitamin D is unique because it is actually a hormone, not a vitamin. Normally this vitamin is made on the skin after sun exposure. During the winter months, our skin is not subjected to as much sunlight as it is during the summer months-meaning our vitamin D reserves can become depleted.
7. Immuno PRP-Research shows that colostrum PRP’s are important for immune system health and function. PRP stands for proline-rich polypeptides, these nutrients have the ability to ramp up the immune system for fighting infection. PRP supports optimal thymus gland function, aiding in the production of T-cells that fight viruses and antigens. PRP’s also help to down-regulate an overactive immune system, a common factor in autoimmune illnesses. Inhibiting the overproduction of T-cells and lymphocytes, pain, swelling, and inflammation is reduced.
The common drug Tamiflu can cause a myriad of side effects including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, and nosebleeds among other symptoms. We choose to use other products such as botanicals so that we can avoid potentially dangerous side effects.
