Colds and Flu

Colds and Flu

When you’re suffering with a cold or flu we can help. We will provide a full evaluation of your symptoms including an eyes, ears, nose and throat evaluation to diagnose your illness. We can even perform strep throat testing in our office.

As colds and the flu are viral illnesses, antibiotics are ineffective and these conditions should be handled by modulating the body’s immune system to fight off the infection. There is no better anti-biotic than our own body’s defenses. There are several natural products, ranging from Chinese herbs to high potency vitamins and minerals, which are very effective at assisting the body in fighting off viruses far more quickly than rest and chicken soup alone.

 

Repetitive illness or seemingly constant cold symptoms can be an indication of an immune system dysfunction or an underlying chronic infection which we will test for.
