Naturopathic Treatment of colds and flus:


Vitamin C: There is a treatment for the common cold after all. Vitamin C given in doses of 1000-8000 mg per day may reduce the duration of a cold episode by as much as 48%. [Does Vitamin C Alleviate the Symptoms of the Common Cold? – A Review of Current Evidence Scan J Infect Dis 1994;26:1-4.]

Oregano or Berberis complex: these herbs are anti-microbial. When taken 3x/day can stop any bacterial infection and decrease sick days.
