The Naturopathic approach to cold and flu prevention is focused on strengthening one’s immune system. A lifestyle that includes a healthy nutritious diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, limited refined sugars, proper hydration, regular exercise, stress management and proper sleep, are all essential. What do you do when you’re doing all of the above and still getting sick? Or constantly exposed individuals who are sick? Or what if you just want a preventative approach?
Again this year I will be offering an immune booster called “Pascoleucyn Forte”, which is a natural immune booster. It contains Echinacea, which is preventative against infections and enhances the body’s natural defenses and homeopathic Aconitum, Bryonia, Lachesis and Sulfur Iodatum. All of these are ideally suited for the treatment of inflammatory and febrile infections, especially for inflammation of the upper and lower respiratory tract. Pascoleucyn Forte has been available for over 60 years and is fully registered with Health Canada.
For the average person, you would need one dose now and another in 2 months (January) of the immune booster. If you are more prone to being sick then monthly administrations maybe required. The Pascoleucyn Forte can be administered as an injection or a drinkable liquid. It is available for individuals 12 years of age and older. This product is not for individuals with an allergy to Echinacea or if you have an autoimmune disorder. If you’ve already received your flu shot for the season, there are no interactions as this product works on boosting your immune system and natural responses.
The visit is ten minutes and costs $25. For health benefits this is classified as a Naturopathic service and covered compared to supplements, which are not. You can book your 15 minute immune booster appointment online .
