There are many ways to protect against the flu virus and to ameliorate the illness should prevention fail.

What can we do?  Plenty!  Firstly, we’ve talked a lot about keeping our immune systems strong and effective with lots of whole, foods, including organic fruits and vegetables, where possible, and pastured or wild-caught meats and fish.  Sleep is also important, as well as exercise, of course.

Here at Chesapeake Holistic, we also believe that an ounce of prevention—in the form of homeopathic remedies—is worth a pound of cure. Each year, we receive a homeopathic remedy specifically designed to fight the current season’s strains of the flu virus, similar to the way vaccines are developed.  The good news with homeopathic remedies, however, is that there are no side effects, and they are safe for everyone.

Lastly, there are a number of supplements that can help our bodies fight the flu, including Ultra Vir-X ( ,  Olive Leaf ( , Immunitone Plus ( , and many others—please visit our ONEholistic store ( and shop Cold/Flu. (

You can do it.  We can help.

Yours in Health,
