Shorten Duration of FLU & Feel Better Quickly!
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!
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.

(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!“
