 Herbal Medicine: The Common Cold 

  • Nutrients

    - Adding extra Vitamin A or Beta carotene, Zinc, and Vitamin C during the cold/flu season will most certainly help to protect against infection.

  • Herbs

    - Astragalus is a great toning herb which can be used to build your immune system when you are healthy -- proactive medicine!

  • Rest

    - Crucial for regeneration

  • Positive thoughts

    - It helps!

    NOTE: If you experience any of the following along with what you believe to be a cold, please consult with your physician:

    • Fever that continues above 101 degrees for more than 72 hours
    • Secondary infections of the lungs, ears or sinuses
    • Any sputum that continues to be green or bloody
    • Continued difficulty swallowing
    • Wheezing or continued shortness of breath
