Q & A - Colds, Flu, Ear Infections
Q. What should I do if I've been exposed to the flu?
A. I take large doses of a good immune herbal mix which can be taken every three hours. Take large doses of Vitamin C and increase your Vitamin D intake. There is a wonderful homeopathic remedy called ossescillain that if taken during the first 48 hours of the flu can reduce the intensity of the flu.
Q. What is the best herb for chronic fluid in the ears?
A. Eyebright is my favorite herb for this problem. I often combine eyebright in a mix with elderberry, elderflower and Echinacea. Using herbs will help reduce the fluid, but taking certain foods out of the diet is the best approach to stopping a recurrence of the problem. I have found putting the child on the blood type diet works best.
