From drinking a lot of fluids to consuming chicken soup, treating the flu can be done naturally, without drugs. Vitamins, homeopathy and good old-fashioned "get some rest" are among the Flu Treatment Protocol....
Fluids: Drink a lot of liquids. Water, juice, and non-caffeinated drinks are best. Especially when you have a high fever, your body needs much more liquid than when you are healthy. Having enough fluids also helps the mucus in your sinuses and lungs to stay thin and easy to clear from the body. When the mucus is thin, it is less likely to cause a sinus infection or bronchitis.
Chicken soup is a proven remedy for the flu!
Rest: The more you rest, the quicker your body will heal itself.
Vitamin D: Adults: 100,000 Units per day (yes, one hundred thousand units!) for 3 days, then 10,000 U/day until the illness is resolved.
Children: 1000 Units per pound of body weight for 3 days only, then 2000 U/day until the illness is resolved.
Vitamin A: (Micel A, water soluble Vitamin A @ 5000 Units per drop)
Adults and children over 2: Take 10 drops twice daily for 5 days.
Children under 2 years old: call your healing arts provider.
Colloidal Silver: 500 ppm solution
Adults: 1 teaspoon by mouth 3 times per day (can use up to 1 tablespoon 3 times per day for severe cases). Take for the duration of the illness only.
Children: ½ teaspoon by mouth 3 times per day.
Vitamin C: Multi Element Buffered C powder containing zinc
Adults: 1 teaspoon (2.6 grams or 2600mg of C) in powder every 2 hours while awake and to “bowel tolerance.” Bowel tolerance means to keep taking the VitC until you get loose stools, and then stop for that day.
Children: ½ teaspoon (1.3 grams or 1300mg of C) every 2 hours to bowel tolerance.
Zinc: (if not using the Multi Element Buffered C powder as stated above, you will need extra zinc as follows):
Adults: 75-100mg per day until completely better
Children: 25-50mg per day until completely better
Gripp-Heel: (homeopathic flu remedy)
Adults & Children: Dissolve 1 tablet under tongue or in mouth every 4 hours while awake.
Homeopathic flu shot: For severe cases, Homeopathic “Flu” Shot contains the homeopathics “Engystol” and “Gripp-Heel.” These two remedies are given together by one injection into the arm. For those at very high risk of getting the flu, they can also be administered once per month during the flu season for added prevention.
Intravenous Vitamin C, Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation and Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide can be used for very severe cases.
