Influenza Prevention and Treatment Recommendations

No Comments

Influenza, also called the “flu”, is a viral infection similar to, but more severe than a common cold. Occasional epidemics occur, which may at times be very severe and even life-threatening. During these epidemics many physicians and the media often recommend “flu shots” and certain prescription medicines for the flu. These rarely work and may have detrimental side effects. Dr. Rydland, many of his patients and his family use a natural approach to flu prevention. He uses and recommends the following for the children in his practice.

Dr. Rydland recommends that children take these supplements regularly until the influenza season ends:

1.    kidsWellnessTM Family Daily Defense, dosage is according to his/her weight as is listed on the label, three times daily throughout the season or epidemic.

2.   Vitamin C, 300 milligrams per 10 pounds of body weight daily, divided into two to four doses two days per week (e.g. on weekends).

3.  Vitamin A 100,000 I.U. twice daily for two days and thwn 10,000 I.U. for each 10 pounds body weight once weekly.

4.  Vitamin D3, 1,000 I.U. daily for children over 20 and under 40 pounds, 2,000 I.U. daily for children over 40 pounds. Adults may take the same dose, up to 5,000 I.U. daily upon physician recommendation and/or blood testing.

5.  Prevena-Flu (homeopathic preparation that has been used as both a preventive and therapy for the flu) once weekly for the duration of the flu season. If you or your child is beginning any flu-type symptoms take the recommended dose three times daily for the duration of the symptoms. Nothing should be eaten, and no drinks other than water for 15 minutes before and after using the Prevena-Flu. This  is a homeopathic nosode, commonly used by many natural practitioners as protection and treatment for most cases of influenza [“flu”] in combination with Anas barbaria hepatis et cordis extractum, the active ingredient in Oscillococcinum.

We will do our best to revise these recommendations as situations change. Feel free to contact your physician or us should you have any further questions. This information is in no way intended to substitute for medical advice from your personal physician.

Upon approval from his/her personal physician an adult can also use the above recommendations. Prevena Flu, because it is homeopathic, may be taken by everyone.
