Every winter I have a number of patients contacting me for options to boost up their immune system. There has never been a more important time to do so than now because not only will we have to protect ourselves from the influenza (flu) virus but also from Covd-19.
The regular flu vaccine is prepared from the fluids of chick embryos that are inoculated (injected) with specific types of influenza virus. Creating the flu vaccine is an educated guessing game. Every year a group of federal officials get together and try to guess which 3 strains of the influenza virus are most likely to cause the most problems in the winter months. Therefore, the effectiveness of the flu vaccine changes from year to year depending on how well the officials guessed what strains will be around during the winter months.
At our clinic we offer a natural immune booster shot that is beneficial whether or not you choose to take the flu shot. Our natural booster shot is a combination of homeopathic remedies that can be absorbed in your mouth when your mouth is clear of any flavours. The Journal of Biomedical Therapy (Winter 2002 pg.14) published an article on the benefits of this treatment:
All of these benefits have been largely confirmed in clinical practice as well. This natural immune system booster is beneficial for children, adults and especially for the elderly who are usually the higher risk patients.
