    A battle with an infection that just won’t go away can turn the season of joy into a nightmare...

    It’s like an unwanted, obnoxious guest who’s lingering around, spoiling your holiday party.

    It’s the No. 1 SECRET to help turbo-charge your immune system.

    With it:

    • You can AVOID colds and other respiratory infections; and
    • You can even REVERSE them when they strike!

    Keep reading for this virtually bullet proof strategy...

    There IS a cure for the common cold

    You don’t need meds for this one.

    These simple, proven and all-natural cures tackle the cold itself – not just its symptoms:

    VITAMIN D: New research finds 5,000 mg per day increases secretory immunoglobulin A, the protective barrier against germs in your nose, throat and sinuses. That jump in activity led to higher immune function and fewer respiratory infection symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, and coughing.

    That’s right in line with older research on D – including a 2016 report that found these supplements can cut the risk of infection by a staggering 40 PERCENT.

    NAC: N'acetylcysteine can prevent flu, colds and other nasty infections. Take 600 mg twice a day on an empty stomach during winter, and boost it to 2,000 mg per day if you get sick to cut the duration, severity and symptoms.

    ZINC: No cure for the common cold? Whoever said that has never tried zinc! It’s available as lozenges, just be sure to track how much you take each day. You’ll want about 100 mg, spread out. Get too much, and you could end up with some gas and diarrhea.

  2. Vitamin D slashes risk of respiratory infection

    Avoid respiratory infections with this common vitamin

    Imagine a bad cold that keeps coming back -- one that returns so frequently that you buy your tissues and cold meds in bulk at the local warehouse club.

    That's life with a chronic respiratory infection, and it's every bit as miserable as it sounds.

    But cold meds won't help you beat respiratory infection. Even prescription antibiotics won't help -- but anyone given these drugs can tell you that, because they end up taking them again and again and again.

    In one new study out of Sweden, patients with a recurring respiratory infection were on the meds for more than a full month out of a year -- 33 days on average -- while also taking a placebo treatment.

    Clearly, there wasn't much of a placebo effect here. But just as clearly, the antibiotics didn't bring much to the table, either.

    A second group of patients, on the other hand, took something other than a placebo -- and this was something that really did help. These patients spent 50 percent less time on antibiotics (16 days) over the course of that same year.

    They were also 63.5 percent less likely to need antibiotics in the first place, and had 25 percent fewer symptoms overall.

    So what was this miracle treatment? It wasn't a new drug -- it was one of the very same immune-boosting treatments I recommend to my own patients, especially the ones who battle a recurring respiratory infection and other similar illnesses.

    It was ordinary vitamin D.

    The patients in the new study were given 4,000 IUs a day, or what the media refers to as a "high" dose.

    But that's not high, especially for patients in a sun-starved region such as Sweden. Most people will need a minimum of 2,000 IUs a day -- even in sunny regions -- and as much as 5,000 IUs a day, depending on their needs.

    Your own holistic doctor can help you figure out how much you need as well as the best way to get it.
