> Hi all,

> Yes, it's flu season; my advice to my patients with a cold or flu is to
> "juice fast" on a variety of fresh juices, then after feeling relatively
> normal, gradually add back fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, fresh fish over
a
> period of a few days.  And eat only organic.  It works great for every
one
> of my patients who try it.  I have observed that dairy, sugar, fried
foods,
> flour, and any cooked starches will generally worsen all the symptoms.  I
> see patients every year, all winter who have the "flu" and I really think
> it is a problem with toxicity that beats up the immune system.  I
> never/rarely get sick with a cold, and if I feel something coming on I
will
> immediately juice some carrots and fruit and usually prevent myself from
> becoming ill.
>
> > Dear friends:      Even though this is the flu season and everyone in
> > the around you or in the  office is sick  and people are hacking and
> > coughing...
>
> Also, I believe that eating non-toxic food, meaning organic unprocessed
> foods is really really important.  I have a significant other who used to
> get colds and flu in the winter every year.  We met five years ago.  At
> first he inevitably got sick every year after being exposed to sick
people
> and take a minimum of 2 weeks to completely recover and become symptom
> free; and more if a severe one hit him.  I didn't/don't get ill with
colds,
> although I used to all the time.
>
> I would give him fresh organic juices each time and he'd recover
> "remarkably fast" (according to him).  During the past years we have
eaten
> the majority of our meals at home and had nearly all organic food; lots
of
> fresh fish (raw and cooked), a lot of raw foods and cut down on refined
> carbs, especially any type of grains (especially flour, including whole
> grain organic flours) drastically over a period of months.  He was not
been
> ill for two years.
>
> Then these past two months he had a heavy work schedule and ate many more
> meals "out" when working, and consequently much less of our usual organic
> regimen.  He just caught a bad cold for the first time in about two
years.
>  I immediately insisted he have organic juices for two days, plus my
> chinese herbs.  He isn't completely well yet but compared to his previous
> state, he'll be over this one in about 90% less time than he would have
> been 5 years ago (for a cold of the same severity).  He was a complete
> skeptic about food and immunity 5 years ago.  He is not a "true believer"
> yet but is now convinced I have some useful tips as he will absolutely
> follow my advice on juice fasting etc.  It took him 4 years to admit that
I
> have the right ideas about this stuff.

> A useful supplement for those who want more help is twinlab's brand
immune
> protectors supplement.  Single traditional chinese herbs that are useful
> include mentha (peppermint), lonicera, forsythia, chrysanthemum; fresh is
> best; second best is dried herb made into tea.  For sore throats,
licorice
> root is useful; take a small piece and chew it until the flavor is all
> gone, allowing saliva to go down the throat and coat it while the flavor
of
> the root is in your mouth.  If peppermint is unavailable fresh mints of
any
> kind are great; take the leaves and eat them instincto style.  Other
common
> items that are useful for colds that can be consume instincto style
> include:  bulb of scallion; crushed fresh garlic; chopped onion. Oh with
> peppermin the entire stems, if tender enough also are good.
>
> Hope this helps anyone susceptible to the flu or colds.  Oh BTW I also
> think over eating is very bad for your immune system.
>
> Also, ask yourself if you have anything invested in being ill.  Most of
the
> time people cannot say they need to rest or take time off during the
> holidays and are very stressed; and their bodies simply decide that they
> WILL rest.  In other words, if you can't decide to get a certain amount
of
> rest, and respect the limits of your health, your body will decide for
you.
>  I have nothing invested in being ill unless faced with very unusual
> circumstances.  I mean, if you have an unreasonable boss or killer job,
> isn't it better to be ill and resting at home than to be at work?  Being
> ill is sometimes a safety valve and a red flag that a person needs to
take
> better care; rather than something to be "conquered" it could be a gift
> from
> your body giving you a message that it needs some kind of attention.

> Happy holidays,
