Shorten Duration of FLU & Feel Better Quickly!

True life case of Dr. Miller’s care at home. Share this to help family & friends!

Sunday, my daughter suddenly started coming down with influenza (terrible aches, cough, fatigue). I immediately started her on Tamiflu (twice a day with meals) and told her to take her daily Vitamin D, Fish oil, & Orthobiotic (she usually doesn’t remember/want to do this…).

Monday, she went to school but then developed a fever (along with more aches & cough/fatigue), so she was willing to add our great immune boosters & anti-viral supplements as she had an important dance competition in a couple days.

I gave her 2 Viracid, 2 Echinacea Synergy, 2 NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine), 2 Thorne Vitamin C 1000mg, and 4 ADP Oil of Oregano with a little snack, and in about an hour all her symptoms and fever were so much better! Her fever never got to 100 again. For about 2 days she would get a little worse right before her next dose of the supplements, but they continued to make her feel SO much better….See my dosing for teens and adults below.

She did not miss any school or homework or practices her week of influenza! And she did have her competition partners take immune boosters too.

Wow, last night she even thanked me and said I was right about the supplements! (Other illnesses in the past she wouldn’t take them because weren’t prescription……. a parent’s expertise smashed in their own home!)

Take as Soon as Flu Symptoms Appear

  • Viracid – 2 capsules 3x/daily
  • Echinacea Synergy – 1 to 2 tablets 3x/daily
  • NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) – 2 capsules 3x/daily
  • Thorne Vitamin C 1000mg – 2 capsules 2x/daily and or Emergen-C
  • ADP Oil of Oregano – 4 tablets 4x/daily

Continue taking these until better. Best taken with a little snack. See our Cold and Flu prevention article for younger children’s peds dose.

The Utmost Priority Is at Least 8-9 Hours of Sleep Nightly!

Follow & share my profile or for my posts on the outstanding book “Why We Sleep” by Matthew Wallace and I will be writing article on it soon.

Flu Prevention

Preventing illness is especially important when exposed to flu (or flying during flu season)… my husband & I took these all week!!!
  • Echinacea Synergy, 1 tablet 2-3x daily
  • Viracid, 1 capsule 2x daily
  • NAC, 1 capsule 2x daily
  • Thorne Vitamin C 1000mg, 1-2 capsules 2-3x daily
  • ADP Oil of Oregano, 2-4 tablets 2-3x daily

Take these daily for your immune system support: *SLEEP* 8-9 hours, Orthomega Fish Oil, Orthobiotic, Vitamin D5000.

For normal prevention but with less exposure:

Vitamin C, NAC, and ADP Oil of Oregano (or diffuse essential oils). All of them though can be taken daily except Echinacea, as its immune boosting should only be done for several weeks.

You, your family & friends can order these great supplements online at or in person at Excell for Life Family Care & Pediatrics, the best functional medicine practice in Indiana!

Praises to God for helping us to continually learn the best care for our bodies & His awesome love!

Psalm 103:2-5 “(1) Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. (2) Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. (3) He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. (4) He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. (5) He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
