How to NOT get the flu
Get an edge on the nasty flu season

Flu season is here and worse than ever: here's how to prepare!
Aside from washing your hands often, you'd surprised at the many
things you can do to avoid getting the flu. Preventing the flu and
staying healthy go hand-in-hand, starting with good gut health.

Newsweek warns to
brace yourself for a miserable flu season in
2018. That might scare you into getting a flu shot, though it
won't cover you for Influenza A or H3N2 ~ at least it didn't for
Australians where the vaccine was just 10 percent effective.

Below are the best ways for how to not get the flu...

How Not to Catch the Flu!
There are many dietary supplements on the market that can
enhance immunity, and some of our favorites include:

#1: Stop the spread of germs.
In addition to washing hands there are other ways to stop the
spread of germs:

  • Sanitize surfaces. Sanitizing surfaces in the bathroom,
    kitchen and popular places for hands is one of the best ways
    to stop the spread of germs. Steramine is a great sanitizer
    to pack for prepping and it's also economical. One tablet
    makes a gallon of cleaning solution.

#2: Take a supplement.
There are many supplements designed to help boost your immune
system and below are some of the best...

Infection Protection by Dr. Christopher.
Infection Formula by Dr. Christopher is known for its ability to
help combat infections.
Infection Formula is a time-tested dietary
supplement that reduces inflammation kills infection clears toxins
form the lymph system and is a natural infection fighter.
Ingredients include plantain leaves, black walnut, Golden Seal,
root bugleweed herb, marshmallow root, and lobelia herb.

Boiron Oscillococcinum.
Boiron Oscillococcinum is a homeopathic product for Flu-like
Symptoms, pictured right. Oscillococcinum works naturally with
your body to temporarily relieve flu-like symptoms, such as
fatigue, headache, body aches, chills and fever. Oscillo has been
shown in clinical studies to help reduce both the duration and the
severity of flu-like symptoms. It does not cause drowsiness or
interact with other medications.

Best of all, Oscillo’s sweet-tasting pellets dissolve quickly under
the tongue; no water, chewing or swallowing is required.
Recommended for everyone ages 2 and up, Oscillococcinum works
best when taken at the first sign of flu-like symptoms.

Colloidal silver.
Soverign Silver, pictuered right, is the best selling colloidal silver
and for good reason. It's loaded with immune-boosting power!
The tiny particle size of colloidal silver in Sovereign Silver yields
greater surface area, making this 10 parts-per-million (ppm)
product more effective than competing brands of much higher
ppm. Taken 7 times a day for 70 years, Sovereign Silver still falls
below the EPA's RfD for silver!

Echinacea.
An easy pick for immunity boosting is Echinacea (an essential oil
from the Coneflower).
Echinacea has long been known to help
shorten colds, and help fight infections, but there are so many
other potent herbs, vitamins and foods, so keep reading! Best
known for boosting immune function, apparently works by helping
white blood cells and lymphocytes to protect the body against
invading organisms, unlike antibiotics, which are directly lethal to
bacteria, Echinacea makes immune cells more efficient in
attacking bacteria, viruses and abnormal cells. What's more, an
immunization is active only against a specific problem, while
Echinacea stimulates the overall activity of the cells responsible
for fighting all kinds of infection.

Native Americans were among the first to use echinacea as a
natural pain killer.
Echinacea as an analgesic treated a variety of
ailments from snake bites to tooth aches.


Sambuca Black Elderberry Syrup, elderberry flowers.
Black elderberries have, for centuries, been credited with immune
supportive properties. The berries and flowers are rich in
flavonoids, which are believed to provide its therapeutic effects
and are bursting anthocyanins that defend cells against the
effects of oxidation.

What's more, elderberries contain heart healthy nutrients like
phosphorus and potassium, two essential nutrients for vascular
health and cardiovascular function. Black Elderberry Syrup,
pictured right,
Nature's Way Sambucus has been virologist tested
as a natural and effective way to fight viral infections.

Thieves Oil.
Powerful immune support is an ancient secret: it's called thieves
oil.
Thieves oil is a blend of several immune-boosting essential
oils. It smells a bit like potpourri in that it combines essential
oils of Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus, Lemon and Rosemary to
boost the immune system and help fight oncoming illness*.

Well known for its dietary, aromatic, or topical use, Thieves Oil by
Young Living Essential Oils was
tested at Weber State University,
Ogden, Utah, and found to be effective against airborne bacteria!
During the 15th-century plague, thieves used an oil of cloves,
rosemary, and other aromatics to protect themselves while
robbing plague victims. What's more, in the
Survival Medicine
Handbook: A Guide for When Help is Not on the Way
, by Joseph
Alton M.D. and Amy Alton ARNP, they recommend stocking
Thieves Oil! (Page 78.) for upper respiratory infections.

#3: Wear a respirator.
In many Asian countries it's quite common to see people
shopping or walking the streets wearing a respirator. It may be a
bit of a spectacle, but it's well worth your life to wear one in
times of crisis, such as the 2018 flu season.


#4: Take your medicine!
It's disheartening to read about all the deaths as a result of the
2017-2018 flu season. Don't "tough it out" ~ if you have access
to medicine take it, no matter the expense.

  • A Texas mother of two died of the flu by skipping medication
    which cost $116. She deemed it too costly, and when her
    husband discovered it, he picked up the medication on
    Thursday, but it was too late and she was hospitalized and
    placed on dialysis at the hospital before passing away Friday
    February 9, 2018.

When should you go to the hospital?
A respiratory illness can be a life or death situation. If you find
yourself or your child with the flu, what should you do? Be
cautious if any of the following apply:
  • Young children (children younger than 5 are particularly
    vulnerable)
  • Pregnant women
  • Adults 65 years and older.
  • Beware of unusual symptoms: leg pain, side pain
  • Pneumonia

Patriot Nurse recommends you pay close attention to the ABCs:
  • Airway ~  localized swelling can close the airway (head to
    the hospital immediately.
  • Breathing ~ belabored breathing or wheezing is another
    telltale sign to head to the hospital.
  • Circulation ~
