The flu came to my house…

April 8, 2009 at 6:15 pm 2 comments

Yes, that’s right it happened…but it wasn’t me that was sick. It was my hubby who after being way too stressed out lately and not taking the best care of himself (even with a nutritionist wife) ended up with a bug. By the way do anybody’s husbands listen to their wives advice?

But I digress…back to the subject at hand. The reason I’m bringing this up is that I gave him some herbs that weren’t mentioned in my previous posts about colds and flu. He tested for three things that kicked it out fast so I wanted to share these. When I say “tested for” that means I muscle checked him for what his body needed to get well.  These three things were: FV, Lymphomax and Yarrow.

First he was having body aches (bad neck pain), high fever (it got up over 103°), chills, nausea and fatigue. So the three things he tested for were combinations of herbs that helped with all of these symptoms.

FV: Contains Ginger Root, Capsicum fruit, Goldenseal Root and Licorice Root. Helps strengthen the immune system to fight bacterial and viral infections, including colds and flu. These herbs also help to reduce fever, alleviate coughs, relieve pain and inflammation and soothe nausea and upset stomach.

Lymphomax: Contains Mullein, Bayberry, Cleavers, Plaintain, Alfalfa, Chamomile, Echinacea, Yarrow, Garlic, Red Root, Lobelia and Sodium Copper Chlorophyllin. These herbs are traditionally known to improve lymphatic circulation, reduce inflammation and prevent infection. The lymph system is the fluid that all our cells are bathed in and is where all toxins are then flushed through for removal from the body. When we are sick this system become sluggish so these herbs eliminate accumulated fluids and wastes from tissues which then helps clear lymphatic congestion.

Yarrow: This herb is has been used since ancient times to stop bleeding of all kinds external and internal. Yarrow has many uses and the one that my hubby needed was to counteract his fever and to induce perspiration so that his body could flush out the toxin.

The first day he took 2 FV, 1 Lymphomax, 1 Yarrow- 5 times that day. The next day he took that same amount 3 times. And now he is feeling great! He’s not always good at the preventative stuff but when he gets something he always asks what he can take because he knows he’ll feel better fast.

Oh and I did forget to mention that he took Silver Shield, the safe and effective natural antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral. He took 1 tsp 3x a day.  He’ll stay on that for another week. I recommend mixing it with a small amount of water and then  swishing in your mouth for 6 minutes to really kick out the bad stuff fast. Love this stuff and wouldn’t be with out it!

    You should also try oil pulling (

    My family and I have been doing this for 3 years now and have had a lot of relief from allergies.

    It is a very simple daily ayurvedic therapy that is supposed to detox the body of toxins. All you need to do is to rinse your mouth with a tablespoon of refined sunflower oil for about 15 mins.

    Hope that helps everyone!

    No, to answer your question about husbands listening to their wife’s advice. As much as I try to encourage my hubby to take care of himself and take daily vitamins, before he gets sick. I always end up feeling like a big nag. 🙂

    Now he is terribly sick and what we thought was the flu was actually the rhino virus, he had all the same symptoms as your husband too (high fever (it got up over 103° as well), chills, nausea and fatigue.). Now I just have to keep him hydrated and make him rest. I have been giving him D3 and herbal tea, Vitamin C and I even tried to give him fresh garlic cloves but it was way too strong for his poor stomach. I have been taking fresh garlic everyday and sanitizing the house and I think that has what has kept me from getting sick.

    Thanks for your article, it was very helpful!
