This cold and flu season I am offering immune boosting shots that can be used alone or with your regular flu shot. This naturopathic flu shot is meant to boost your immune system to fight off any viruses or bacteria that you come in contact with. It does not subject you to the virus itself. The shot alleviates symptoms of the common cold, and prevents the onset and duration of flu.
What is it & Who can use it? A combination of herbal medicine and sterile homeopathics that help the immune system fight bacteria and viruses. It has been used for over 35 years and is safe for healthy adults and children over 4 (For Children, there is a drinkable version available and dosing is adjusted appropriately).
Side Effects: In isolated cases hypersensitive reactions may occur with drugs containing Echinacea. Skin rash, itching and in rare cases facial swelling, respiratory problems, dizziness and a fall in blood pressure have then been observed. In these cases consult a healthcare practitioner right away.
Not Safe For: Anyone with an allergy to echinacea of the asteraceae (daisy) family, or iodine. Anyone with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, progressive systemic diseases such as tuberculosis, leukemia or leukemia-like conditions, in ammatory connective tissue disorders (collagen diseases), autoimmune disorders, multiple sclerosis, AIDS, HIV infection or any other chronic viral disease.
