SupplementationVitamin D immunity 1000IU/dayZinc Copper complex antioxidant, 30-50mg with food/day or lozenges Vitamin CGarlic capsules 3 times a dayHomeopathic remedy: oscillococcinum

Onion Syrup1 large purple onion chopped, sliced 2 cloves of garlic, honeyPlace in a glass container and cover in honey, let standOptional - strain onion (1-5 days)Take one tablespoon of the syrup 2 times a day or as needed

Antibiotic TonicThe antibiotic tonic is a powerful combination of synergistic foods and herbs that possess not only antibacterial qualities, but antiviral, anti-parasitic, and anti-fungal as well. These qualities along with a nice blend of enzymes, probiotics, and vitamin C, makes it a very powerful natural remedy to help destroy cold and flu infections.

Antibiotic TonicIngredients(choose organic for more potency)2 cloves of garlic1/2 small onion1 piece of turmeric (1 inch or 1/4 tsp ground)1 piece of ginger (1/2 inch or 1/4 tsp ground)1 lemon1/2 small hot pepperor dash of cayenne pepper1 oz of apple cider vinegar1 piece of horseradish (1/2 inch)

Antibiotic TonicDirectionsPeel garlic and lemonFeed garlic, onion, turmeric, ginger, lemon, horseradish, and hot pepper(if not using ground cayenne pepper) through juicer one by one (you can also blend, and strain)Add cayenne (if not using hot pepper, or if you can handle more heat) and apple cider vinegar.Put mixture in air tight glass bottle, and place in your natural pharmacy cupboard.

DoseAcute 1oz Chronic put in tincture bottle and take 2-3 dropperfuls three times a day

Hot and cold water therapyHot foot bathWrap up in a warm blanket with your feet in hot water and a cold washcloth on your forehead. Sit back and relax for 10-15 minutes. Take care not to get chilled after this treatment. Throat or chest compressWarm the chest or throat with a wash cloth or shower and thoroughly dry the skin. Put on a cold wet cotton t-shirt (cloth for the throat) and then a wool sweater (scarf for the throat). Go to bed this way and by morning you will be dry. This increases circulation and white blood cell activity

Contrast BathingStay warm.You generally want to be more thorough with your heat: at least a minute, but as long as five minutes depending on how efficient your heating method is. Heat is more comforting and relaxing than cooling, obviously, and inadequate heating is the most common thing people do wrong with contrasting.Finish with cold.You should usually finish a contrast session with cold, particularly if you suspect that you might be a little inflamed. Never finish with heat if youre concerned about aggravating inflammation. You might choose to finish with heat if your priority is to have a more relaxing experience.

Wet Sock TreatmentSupplies:1 pair of very thin socks, liner socks or polypropylene socks1 pair of thick wool socks or thick polypropylene socks2 sets of sweats or pajamas1 bowl of ice water

Directions:Soak the pair of thin socks in the bowl of ice water. Then wring the socks out thoroughly so they do not drip.Take a hot bath for 5-10 minutes. This is very important for the effectiveness of the treatment. In fact, it could be harmful if your feet are not warmed first.Dry off feet and body with a dry towel.Place ice-cold wet socks on feet. Then cover with thick wool socks. Put on the first set of pajamas. Go directly to bed. Place the second set of pajamas next to the bed. Avoid getting chilled.Wear the socks overnight. During the night, you may wake up with your whole body wet from sweat. If so, change into the dry pajamas, but leave on the socks. You will find that the wet cotton socks will be dry in the morning.
