PREPARING FOR FLU SEASON - Part 2
* * *VICKI OPFER'S FLU TESTIMONIAL & RECOMMENDATIONS:
[Vicki Opfer is in health education and top Young Living distributor and trainer.]
A couple of weeks ago, on the news, two schools were being interviewed. The representative of the first one said that they were seeing 20 new cases of flu a day. The second, the University of Denver where my son, Chris, attends, said that they were seeing 50 new cases a day. Meanwhile, Chris's girlfriend, Rebecca, came down with it, as did my daughter, Jessica's boyfriend, Adam.
When the kids start to become sick, I figure that extra sleep, extra water, and Vitagreen will handle almost anything... I figure that when someone gets sick, they've worn themselves out, and their immune system is weak, so sleep helps that. They're also usually dehydrated; they don't drink enough water and the body becomes toxic because it's not flushing correctly. And the Vitagreen not only offers a wonderful level of stamina, but also balances blood pH, which, when someone is sick, is almost always too acidic... but I knew that this situation was more serious than that... So when Chris and Jessica both started getting sick, we became Aromatic Warriors (as Dr. Penoel says).
They used the following: Exodus capsules - 3 once or twice a day. Longevity capsules - one every 4 - 5 hours for a couple of days, and then one or two a day for a while. SuperC - 2 - 4 tablets twice a day. Linus Pauling said that we need 10,000 units of vitamin C a day to maintain health. Most of us are lucky to get a couple of hundred... When we get sick, or have allergy symptoms, we start taking at least 1,000 mg of C twice a day - morning and evening. It's water soluble so it does not get stored in the body, and that's why we have to take it about every 12 hours for it to be effective.
A capsule filled with 3 drops of Thieves with 1 drop of oregano in it. (If someone has never taken an oil internally, they have to start with NO MORE than 3 - 4 drops and work their way up, just to make SURE that their body tolerates it well, and if it heats up in the stomach, they drink milk or olive oil, NOT WATER) . The swallowed this capsule once a day.
Thieves Lozenges - They took these off and on during the day. This will be THE product of the season - please make sure to have several of these on hand this year - they're amazing. When you start having a sore throat and take one, two, or three of these in succession, the sore throat simply goes away. If you're coughing, and use one, the cough stops immediately. They also seem to work for 8 out of 10 headaches, offering relief within a few minutes, in most cases. So Jessica, Chris, and I never did catch the flu, even though we had several people who we were spending a lot of time with, who did have it... What a relief! Who has time to be sick, these days?
The Winter Rescue Trio: The following may also be helpful (remember - use what you have): RC and Raven - rub on the chest and back, and take deep inhalations. ImmuPower - rubbed on the spine and feet lavender - rubbed on the chest, or in the bath - it's a natural antihistamine. frankincense - to support the immune system - rubbed on the feet, spine, or chest. Thieves - rubbed on the feet
Viruses have a thin band of pH in which they can survive, so if you can change the pH of your body, even slightly, the virus may just go away. To do this, you would begin to eat vegetables and fruits, and not have anything made with flour, sugar, or dairy products. You could eat salads, vegetables - steamed, fruit salad, and a little light protein now and then like chicken or fish. (You can have a little meat - but consider it a side dish - not the main event of the meal...) Vegetable soup is wonderful. If you are a vegetarian, just reduce the amounts of grains and dairy foods for a few days.
If you DO get the flu, by using oils and supplements, you will probably be able to shorten the duration of the illness, which is also a wonderful thing... That seems to have been true for Rebecca and Adam... Lastly, by all means, drink more water, get more sleep, and take your Vitagreen every day!
