Happy September to all of you! I am amazed at how quickly the summer is passing by and the days are now becoming a little cooler and shorter. I am always somewhat sad when summer comes to an end but I am thankful that every season has beauty and uniqueness in its own way.

It is a beautiful time of year approaching, with the change of the season. As the summer turns into fall and then winter, some of these weather changes can be challenging to our immune system. The start and duration of school/ college appears to be a time when our children start coming home with all kinds of cold, bugs, and flu-like symptoms, and can then get generously passed to the rest of the family.

I thought this may be the perfect time to send out a brief article on what you should have at home in case someone in your home is exposed to illness or becomes ill.

These 3 supplements are always stocked in our medicinal cabinet in case someone comes home with unpleasant symptoms or has been exposed to someone with a cold or flu bug. These 3 supplements have specific purposes for prevention and therapeutic effects aimed at decreasing duration and acute symptoms of these uncomfortable illnesses.

*If you would like to have these three supplements as part of your "arsenal", they can be ordered on the (Wellevate) Dispensary link on this website.

Let’s start with my favorite:

1.   Allimax Pro-

      https://wellevate.me/#/practitioner/dispensary?term=Allimax%20PRO&sort=0&order=false

      Allimax Pro is a certified bioactive allicin supplement. Each capsule contains 450mg of AlliSURE AC-23 stabilized allicin extract, which is the world’s only stabilized extract of allicin.

I can’t say enough amazing things about this product and how many times I have used it for my family and recommended it for my clients dealing with colds, flus, GI infections, UTI’s, respiratory infections, and the list goes on and on.

If you’ve been exposed to illness, typical dosage is (1) 3 times daily and if you are ill, typical dosage can be (3) capsules 3 times per day for 10 days or until symptoms are gone. Children would be half this dose.

      Argentyn 23-

      https://wellevate.me/#/practitioner/dispensary?term=Bio-Active%20Silver%20Hydrosol%E2%84%A2&sort=0&order=false

      https://wellevate.me/#/practitioner/dispensary?term=argentyn%2023&sort=0&order=false

      Argentyn 23 is a professional grade silver hydrosol. It represents the ultimate refinement and most significant breakthrough in colloidal technology. Colloidal silver is an anti-microbial that attacks bacteria in 2 ways: it makes the cell membrane more permeable and interferes with the cells metabolism. Argentyn 23 contains 99.999% pure silver that is suspended in pharmaceutical grade purified water.

I always have a bottle of this on hand at home and at the office when clients have acute and chronic viral infections, as well as infections with specific bacterial strains. It is also a great anti-fungal.

See below for specific usages:

Maintenance Dose: 1 teaspoon, hold under tongue for 30 seconds, swallow; take once per day.
Immune Building: 1 teaspoon, hold under tongue for 30 seconds, swallow; take 3 times per day.
Acute Immune Issues: 1 teaspoon, hold under tongue for 30 seconds, swallow; take 7 times per day.
Ear Health: 1-2 dropper full as needed or desired.
Eye Health: Use 1-2 drops every hour.

First Aid Recovery Support for Cuts, Scrapes, Bug Bites, etc.: To support the immune system- spray five to ten times; repeat 5 times per day.
Gastrointestinal Health: Swallow one tablespoon directly without holding, every hour on an empty stomach until balance is restored.
Intestinal Health Balance: Take 1 tablespoon of silver with 1 tablespoon of a pure aloe liquid on an empty stomach, 3 times per day. Take a probiotic at night before going to bed. This protocol could last 2-8 weeks.
Mouth and Gum Health: Hold 2-3 teaspoons in mouth for a couple of minutes, then swallow; repeat 3-4 times per day.
Nasal Health / Allergies: 1-2 dropper full, leave in for 2 minutes, then swallow; repeat 3-4 times per day. Or, if using a vertical spray, 5 to 10 sprays; repeat 3-4 times per day. I love to use the vertical spray option (nasal sprayer) with symptoms of sinus issues or nasal allergies.
Respiratory Health: Frequent use of small amounts of product is best.
Skin Health: To support the immune system, spray 5-10 times; repeat 5 times per day. If practical, mix with a pure Aloe Vera gel (ratio 1:1) and the silver will have a longer-lasting action; repeat 5 times per day.
Throat Health: Hold 1-2 tablespoons in throat for 3 minutes, then swallow; repeat several times per day. If using spray, 15 sprays every hour.
Urinary Tract Health: Swallow one tablespoon directly without holding, every hour on an empty stomach until urinary tract balance is restored.

 Physician's Strength Oregacillin-

       https://wellevate.me/#/practitioner/dispensary?term=oregacillin&sort=0&order=false

      This product has P73 wild oregano blend in it, 450 mg proprietary blend per capsule. What is P73 wild oregano? This stands for polyphenol 73% and is a specific blend of several high grade, medicinal, wild oreganos. The most well -known benefit of this specific oregano is its anti-microbial properties against viruses, bacteria, and fungus.

I have found this product to be powerful as well for combating an acute illness from a cold or flu.

Usual dosage is: 1 cap 3 times daily for prevention or 2 caps 2-3 times per day for 10 days if you have the actual cold or flu bug

Children would be 1/3-1/2 dosage depending on size and weight

 *It is always a good idea to follow any of these powerful anti-microbial protocols with a probiotic formula to repopulate the healthy bacteria in your microbiome. My favorite is:

Proflora 4R Restorative Probiotic Combination (Bio-Botanical Research) -take 2 at bedtime for 2 weeks
