season is in full swing, and I’ve received lots of letters
asking about the best way to fight it—including the value
of getting a flu shot. I have strong issues against flu shots, not
the least of which is the fact that they aren’t very effective.
To me, that makes even the hint of side effects unacceptable. I
believe in a more holistic approach—naturally boosting your
immune system to prevent infection, and strengthening your ability
to recover quickly if infection occurs.
is my three-step strategy for fighting the flu. I’ve used
it for years and have seen it work wonders for my patients. It’s
also never failed me. If you do end up getting the flu, you’ll
find relief in a matter of hours and be yourself again after just
a couple of days.

to respiratory infections, with harsher and longer-lasting symptoms.
For optimal health—and to protect against colds and the flu—I
recommend that you balance your body’s
pH to a healthier, slightly alkaline state. Click on underlined area for more
you do catch the flu or a cold, here are some quick pH-balancing
one-fourth to one-half a teaspoon
of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
in a glass of water, three to five
times a day. (Note: Though rare,
you can get overly alkalinized from
this program. If you experience
tingling in your extremities, feel
over-energized, can’t sleep,
or experience muscle spasms, stop
the bicarbonate immediately. Take
two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
or lemon juice in water, to rebalance
your system. Restart the baking soda
the following day at a lower level.)
Avoid highly acidic “remedies,” such
as orange juice, ginger ale, and Jell-O.
Instead, neutralize acidity with mineral
water—two to three quarts a
day—plus herbal tea and
vegetable or chicken broth.
