Beat the flu without a shot

I'm exposed to flu all the time -- it's an occupational hazard -- but I never get it. In fact, I haven't even had so much as a sniffle in years.

No, I'm not immune. But I do have a pretty good immune system -- and you can train yours to be every bit as strong as mine even if you have a week immune system.

You can laugh in the face of the flu when you don't have a weak immune system, and you don't need a flu shot or any other vaccine to do it either.

Start with Influenzinum. Think of it as the homeopathic equivalent of a flu shot, minus the mystery particles (and minus the needle, too, for that matter). Like the flu shot, it's reformulated each year. Unlike the flu shot, it's both risk-free and effective at strengthening your week immune system,

I recommend 200c once a month for adults and children.

In addition, be sure to get plenty of vitamin D -- up to 5,000 IU a day for adults and 2,000 IU a day for children, since studies have shown the sunshine vitamin can cut the risk of flu in half.

As a bonus, vitamin D can also help prevent colds.

Finally, be sure to add N-acetylcysteine (aka NAC) to your regimen. One study out of Italy found that people who take it are much less likely to get the flu even when blood tests show that they've been exposed to the virus that causes it. NAC can also help reduce the duration and severity of the flu if you do get it.

I recommend 600 mg twice a day for healthy adults, and half that amount for kids. And if you happen to get the flu despite your turbo-charged immune system, increase that dose to between 2,000 mg and 3,000 mg a day for up to a week.
