Despite our best efforts for prevention, we all get sick from time to time especially during cold and flu season. In this special video from Dr. Morrison, he shares his effective strategy for overcoming an active infection.
When you fall under the weather, give your body the time and rest it needs to heal, and follow these important tips to speed your recovery:
Eat for immune health, including:
- Chicken soup
- My mom was nice enough to share her secret recipe for this amazingly healing dish. Check it out here. People love it!
- Ginger tea
- Ginger is an herb that helps warm the body and curb cold symptoms
Listen to your body:
People often ask, “Should I work out when I’m sick?” If your body is telling you to stay home in bed, you should listen. You’ll heal faster and feel better for taking the time off.
Take immune boosting supplements in specific doses to target infection:
- Medicinal mushroom
- Enhance and stimulate the immune system
- Anti-viral, anti-bacterial and liver-supportive
- Vitamin C – Take 1,000mg Buffered Vitamin C every hour until symptoms improve
- Acts as an antioxidant to help decrease inflammation
- I prefer a “buffered” vitamin C with alkalinizing minerals to make it less acidic – this allows higher doses to be tolerated orally
- Herbal support: Andrographis – Take Andrographis, 2 tablets twice daily until symptoms improve
- Acts like a natural antibiotic
- Powerful anti-inflammatory effect
- Shown in studies to ease symptoms and shorten the duration of the common cold and other respiratory infections:
- Consider a Vitamin C IV Immune Protocol 1-2 times weekly at The Morrison Center or ask your doctor if they do Vitamin C IVs and whether that treatment is right for you.
