Protect You and Your Family during Flu Season with an Immune Booster

Posted Monday, November 15, 2010

You may have noticed lately that there’s a slight nip in the air, which signals the transition between the fall and winter seasons in Vancouver.  While we Vancouverites love the changing colours of the leaves and the prospect of hitting the slopes to ski or snowboard, we’re not excited about red eyes, runny noses or being kept awake at night by coughing.  Yes, it’s that time of year again- flu season.

If you’re looking for a natural, preservative-free way to protect you and your family from the flu, consider an immune booster.

An immune booster, which is made of homeopathic medicines that activate the immune system, is a safe and effective alternative to the traditional flu shot.  Unlike the traditional flu shot, an immune booster provides protection against cold and flu viruses without exposing you or your loved ones to viral particles, preservatives, carcinogens, formaldehyde, squalene or mercury (thimerasol).  In addition to have little to no side effects, immune boosters are safe for people of all ages, from young children (2+ years) to the elderly.

An immune booster is made of herbs, vitamins and minerals that help your body fight colds and the flu by activating your immune system. Why is it important to have a healthy and active immune system?  Because your immune system protects your body from the flu by identifying and fighting the viruses that cause the flu. 

An immune booster can be administered orally or by injection.  Protection usually lasts for the duration of the season, and while it’s best to get an immune booster before you get sick, it’s also effective as a treatment after you’ve become sick.
