2017-2018 Influenza Recommendations

No Comments

The 2017-2018 influenza season has shaped up to be one of the more severe on record. Additionally, the influenza vaccine has been only marginally effective in preventing illness.

At our wellness center we recommend the following for the remainder of the season (at least through the end of April, perhaps longer depending on the length of the season:

  1. Minimize contact with ill individuals and their secretions (coughing, nasal drainage, sneezing, etc.
  2. Employ good hand washing technique when accidentally exposed
  3. Take our Family Daily Defense 2-3 times every day
  4. Take our homeopathic preventative, OHMFlu according to directions once weekly (since this is homeopathic one cannot eat or drink anything except water for at least 10, but preferably 15 minutes both before and afterwards)

Should a family member start with cold or flu symptoms I recommend:

  1. Take OHMFlu three times daily (as above) for three days
  2. Immediately begin our Immune, Respiratory Cough and Sinus Allergy formulas every 2 hours when awake for the first 3 days then 4-6 times daily for another 7-10 days
  3. For fever or pain use our Fever and Pain formula as directed. Check our article about fever on our web site: www.rydlandpediatrics.com. Unless
    there has been an allergy or severe reaction to ibuprofen avoid acetaminophen when necessary for symptoms
  4. Additionally beneficial is the use either orally or (preferably) via nebulizer of colloidal silver (our recommendation is Sovereign Silver)
  5. Call us or seek appropriate medical attention for severe or prolonged symptoms
  6. Testing for influenza is optional.
  7. We do not recommend routine use of prescription antivirals
