Now that we are back to our regular routines and the kids are back to school, we start getting ready for the winter season.  You know what this means… colds and flus!

So I want to take this opportunity to talk to you about the Immune System booster shot that we have been offering at the clinic for the past 18 years.

A natural alternative or a complementary treatment to the conventional Flu Shot is the use of complex homeopathy.  This can be used instead of the flu shot or right after the flu shot in order to protect yourself form any ill effects of it. The results of the studies where patients took this specific homeopathic combination once a month, are as follows:

– It decreases the frequencies of cold and flus.

– The Immune System Booster decreased the intensity of 11 of 16 characteristics of the flu or common cold; such as energy level, lack of appetite, thirst, insomnia, chills, sore throat, earache, pain in arms and legs, headache, nasal secretions, swelling of lymph nodes, runny nose, coughing, etc.

– The Immune System Booster decreased the length of the illness compared to the placebo group.

These benefits have been largely confirmed in my clinical practice in the past 18 years. This Immune System Booster has absolutely NO side effects. In fact, if used together with the conventional flu shot, it can actually help to minimize the flu shot’s possible harmful side effects.

The Immune System Booster is most effective for the 34 days after the administration. Most patients come in once per month for their injection during the winter months (usually starting in September to May). It is recommended to receive the Immune System Booster every 3 weeks if someone has a compromised or lower immune system.

If you would like to receive more information call us to make an appointment or you can just walk in during our Happy Hour Thursdays  – which take place very Thursday from 6:30 pm to 8 pm.
