A Simple Kick-ass Remedy For The Flu?!

 

Here’s a simple remedy to help with the flu from Dr. Kaayla T. Daniel. Wish I’d known about it a couple of months ago. At the time I used large amounts of vitamin C and a number of other natural remedies that helped, but it would have been interesting to give this protocol a try. I already have bone broth and use food grade diatomaceous earth on a regular basis, and have supplements that have grapefruit seed extract as part of the formula, but don’t have it by itself, so I plan to add that to my “first aid” health kit.

 

 

A Kick Ass Flu Remedy

There’s a major  flu epidemic out there. Even people who don’t ordinarily get sick have found themselves seriously ill this winter with incapacitating headaches, fevers, nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea and/or vomiting. It’s been so bad that people who say they would never see doctors, have been scared enough to head to hospital emergency rooms.

If that’s been you, this blog may give you the information you need to avoid a repeat episode. And if the flu hasn’t caught up with you yet, the suggestions in this blog can help you kick it back during the early stages.

This three-step protocol comes from my friend and colleague, Galen D. Knight, PhD, an independent researcher who has investigated the roles of vitalethine in immunological, infectious, autoimmune, and endocrine diseases. His flu protocol is simple, inexpensive and has worked for me and dozens of my clients and friends.

1. GRAPEFRUIT SEED EXTRACT

Start with a quality grapefruit seed extract.  My favorite brand is Wisdom of the Ages Advantage Liquid Concentrate.  You need less than a dropper full, which needs to be diluted about one to three with water. For an adult, this usually means about 15 drops in about a quarter cup of water.  Full-strength grapefruit seed extract will burn so keep it away from your eyes, ears and any mucous membranes.

The grapefruit seed extract alone may be sufficient, but you can also add St. John’s Wort, Elderberry syrup or other herbal and nutritional antivirals. Dr. Knight finds the ethanol forms to be the most effective and reports they can be added full strength without problems.

2. DIATOMACEOUS EARTH

Once you have successfully kept the grapefruit seed extract and the optional antiviral herbs down for half an hour, follow with a slurry of diatomaceous earth in water.  The dose is one tablespoon of food grade diatomaceous earth for every 100 pounds of body weight.  This product must be labeled “food grade” and suitable for human and pet use.  My favorite brand is Perma Guard Fossil Flour.  Another option is Wisdom of the Ages Toxiclenz, a product I’ve often recommended as part of detoxification programs.  It contains a mix of diatomaceous earth and inositol.

3. REST AND RECUPERATE

Allow your body to fully recover even if you start feeling better quickly.  Eat minimally but include lots of bone broth.  My absolute favorite ready-made broth is Lance Roll’s Flavor Chef.  No one does broth better than Lance.  And take care to get enough sleep, reduce stress and include fun in your life from now on!

WHAT TO EXPECT 

Many people find that symptoms such as dry heaves, vomiting and stomach upset are gone within an hour, provided this protocol is begun right away at the first onset of flu symptoms.

The antiviral herbs will help stop a sore throat.

The diatomaceous earth helps to absorb the often toxic die-offs created as the body fights the infection.

If the flu has already gone systemic in your body, it may take 24 to 48 hours to start seeing signs of recovery.  Don’t despair, as this is far better than being knocked out of circulation for a week or two.

Dr. Knight says his protocol has sometimes worked so quickly that people have set out for the doctor’s office only to recover en route, turn around and go home. “One can still go to the doctor if really concerned,” he says, “ but if started right away at the first signs of illness this often works so fast that you will be over it before you can make an appointment or go to urgent care and wait to see someone for help. Realize also, that when flu is epidemic, it is not a good time to sit in a waiting room full of hacking and coughing people.”

BE PREPARED 

Keep these natural remedies on hand as part of your natural first aid kit.  As Dr. Knight puts it, “It is very important to getting a jump on beating this before the flu pummels you and your family.”

    Hi Zirah 🙂 I am sorry to hear you had the flu, but happy you are all well again. 🙂 It is an interesting combination of ingredients in the article. I take Dr Schulze’s Cold and Flu tonic in the cold winter months: a little bit on most days and more if I am feeling droopy or I cross paths with someone who appears to be sick. I also have his Super Food Plus one to four times a day depending on how I feel. And the intestinal formula #2 every once and a while. It sounds like the diatomaceous earth may serve the same purpose as the intestinal formula #2. I am hesitant to try new things right now since my body is sensitive and I am weary of trying things in an attempt to make improvements only to feel worse. 🙂 It is nice to know about what works for others, though, to tuck away for possible future reference. I hope you stay well for the rest of the flu season! The signs of spring are multiplying. 🙂 I heard a robin sing his spring song for the first time this year when I went out at sunrise to leave the bird seed and carrots this morning. I couldn’t see where he was in the trees. He only sang it a couple of times. I found it an encouraging contrast to the cold wind and the frozen precip that was pinging off of my jacket as I walked. 🙂 I hope you have a fun and healthy weekend! 🙂 ❤

      We’ve had great weather here the last couple of days and things are/spring is busting out all over, literally! Just got in from a walk and couldn’t believe the changes in the neighborhood in just the last 2 days. Glad that some of these bloomers are getting to do their thing before more cold weather comes thru.

        The blooming flowers is a happy thought! It is great that you are having nice weather for walks and enjoying the burst of nature. 🙂 I bought flowers last time at the store so I have a pretty bunch to admire while I wait for the ones outside. It is snowing right now. It is a pretty snow fall. I can admire the gentleness of the falling snowflakes even though I know there is ice from this afternoon’s rain underneath and I am ready for warm weather, flowers, and birds and being out with the camera. I am riding the wave of hearing the robin sing. 🙂 He knows what he is talking about! I hope you get to have a nice long walk tomorrow to enjoy the flowers and breath in all that good fresh air. 🙂

        I think the warm weather here is supposed to hold for a few more days, but we’ll see. The temps around here can often fluctuate wilding w/in a short period of time. We have the saying that if you don’t like the weather here right now, just wait a few days/hours and it could be totally different. 🙂 p. s. And I love the look, sound and feel of snow falling, but not dealing with the aftermath, especially if it involves ice and freezing temps. What’s nice now is you are close enough to spring that it’s much easier to see that there’s light at the end of the tunnel. That’s how I feel,…….we’re well past the hump here, so I know I can get thru whatever winter-y weather we still may have ahead of us. Have a great Sunday!
