Natural Cold and Flu Relief For The Whole Family

Organika Health

Tips on fighting off germs and viruses naturally.

Everyone is getting sick in the house, the kids, yourself... and then you realize... it's officially cold and flu season.

We're coming to the rescue, by providing holistic, healthy, and natural solutions for all ages. We consulted with our Registered Holistic Nutritionist and provided solutions for your family.

That means you can get relief for cough and cold, and help your little ones feel their best too!

Let’s get started on feeling better...

What is the best natural remedy for kids?

Providing kids with zinc and oil of oregano for two weeks is a great way to fight infections.

It is also a good idea to provide cough and cold relief, such as Elderberry to alleviate symptoms. This has been used for centuries during fevers to help alleviate symptoms of the cold and flu, including cough.

In addition, fill in the gaps with vitamin C to provide additional immune fighting power.

What is the best natural remedy for adults?

You really can do the same thing as you are doing with the kids if you get a cold or the flu. This is all to BOOST your immune system. Always read the recommended dose per age.

Recommended products:

Another great supplement is NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine), this is for adults only and supports respiratory viruses.

What are the best supplements to prevent colds and flus?

To prevent colds and flus, you want to build your immune system up. This is important to do on an ongoing basis to really get your and your little ones' immunity stronger to fight infections when they do come along.

It’s important to take a probiotic daily. Probiotics support the gut and provide the essential “good” bacteria that help your body stave away unwanted invaders.

In addition, you should continually take vitamin C and zinc. These vitamins and minerals all work directly on immunity by adding a layer of protection.

Another good one for adults is Quercetin with Bromelain, which has been studied for its antiviral, antioxidant, antihistamine, and anti-inflammatory properties.

What immune support can be taken by BOTH adults and kids?

Although most supplements are provided for adult formulation and kids formulations separately by age, there are some things you can have in your arsenal that work to boost immunity for all ages.

Instant C, D, Zinc Immunity Effervescent: These effervescent tablets are great for everyone's immune support, just add to water. If providing to an adolescent or older child (12+), it is recommended to use only a quarter of the tablet in their water.

Bone Broth: Our broth powders can be used as conventional bouillon for all ages but pack a lot of nutrition. Because of the focus on gut health, it also naturally supports immunity. It’s great to add into foods, soups, or to sip on... by all ages.

Electrolytes: It's important to stay hydrated, especially when unwell or facing illness. Kids and adults can have electrolytes, at different doses and amounts, to replenish their lost minerals and keep them energized. You can also find kid-specific electrolyte drinks, however, be conscious of sugar content (which is counter-active to building immunity).

The takeaway on immunity for the whole family...

There are immune builders and boosters.

Immune builders are to build your immune system over time if you are someone that is getting sick often or has a child that gets sick easily (most school-aged kids fall in this category).

Immune boosters are for when you get sick to help boost the immune system and shorten the duration of the cold or flu. Some natural supplements can go in both categories, like vitamin C for example.

Immune Builders:

  • Probiotics
  • Vitamin D3
  • Zinc
  • Vitamin C
  • Bone Broth
  • Electrolytes

Immune Boosters:

  • Vitamin C
  • Zinc
  • Elderberry
  • Bone Broth
  • Quercetin
  • NAC
  • Bone Broth
  • Electrolytes

Be prepared to combat those viruses and germs, naturally.
