If you, or someone you know, is suffering from the flu virus or an infection etc. then you may want to read some of my top tips to help heal more quickly in a natural way…

  • If you are hungry, do your best to eat foods that are not going to be too taxing for your digestion such as warming soups and stews, hydrating whole grains that will help bind toxins to take out the body such as brown rice, millet, quinoa, buckwheat, also vegetables that are easy to digest such as root veg and the cruciferous ones containing phytochemicals, vitamins & minerals, such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, watercress etc. Easy to digest proteins such as beans/legumes/pulses or fresh fish or organic poultry if you aren’t vegetarian/vegan. If it’s possible avoid artificial additives, sugar, alcohol, dairy products etc.
  • Wild Oregano oil is a natural alternative to antibiotics and the easiest one to take is called H2Orega as it is water soluble. The hydrophobic molecules are quickly utilised and taken up better in the gastrointestinal tract. If you get the standard Wild Oregano oil then be very careful you take it in a fat soluble liquid as if not it will burn your mouth/digestion. You can buy this from Natural Dispensary – see details below. Type H2Orega in the search bar.
  • Activated Charcoal helps reduce symptoms of detoxification. Usually, when the body is detoxifing, there are detoxification symptoms that may not be able to get out the body through the proper channels resulting in unpleasant symptoms such as cold or flu, headaches, aching muscles and joints and aggravation of any pre-existing condition. The powder is the most cost effective way to take it. Put a heaped dessert spoon in a large glass and top up with water (filtered is best). Stir and drink with a straw (otherwise you might look like a chimney sweep 😉 Take a pure one made from coconut shells up to 3 times daily in between meals or whenever needed. It is important to drink lots of filtered water when consuming the Activated Charcoal to avoid dehydration. CLICK HERE to buy a powder form from the UK that is reasonably priced – listed under detox products on left hand side of their website.
  • Take Elderberry herbal remedy at the first sign of symptoms may help to deactivate the flu virus and boost the immunity in a natural way. I recommend liquid remedies rather than tablets. You can buy in health shops and online shops such as Natural Dispensary – see details below. Healthaid is a cost effective brand.
  • Echinacea, which is a popular herb known to shorten symptoms of colds and flu, also reduce sore throat, cough, fever and boost the immune system. A clinical trial it showed that echinacea was just as effective as the flu drug. I recommend a liquid variety in tincture form by brands such as Viridian and Bioforce. One of my favourites though is by Nature’s Answer which is alcohol-free. They are all available on the Natural Dispensary website – see details below.
  • Manuka honey is effective to boost the immune system. My favourite brand is Littleover Apiaries Ltd as they do not try to artificially “boost” activity levels as some Manuka brands do. Their Luxury Manuka Honey 10+ would be the one recommended for flu/infections. It is best not to heat to a high temperature as this will destroy the enzymes and healing properties.
  • Keeping hydrated with good quality filtered water and use it to make warm drinks. There is a water jug filter/dispenser called Zerowater now available in the UK with an aim to deliver the best filtration possible with their premium five-stage ion exchange technology, this filter removes virtually all total dissolved solids (TDS), a claim which no other filter jug or dispenser can put their name to.  You can get 10% discount and free shipping in the UK off the jug filters, dispenser and additional filters using code: vital2710CLICK HERE for more details and to order.
  • Studies have shown that Propolis can be effective for colds, flu and infections due to its powerful bacteria-killing properties. You can buy a good quality non alcoholic propolis tincture from Apitherapy Wellbeing. CLICK HERE for details. Speak to Ali on 01263 761525 and mention you have been recommended by practitioner Julie Silver to get a 5% discount off your order.
  • If an infection or virus is in your system Nano Silver can be very beneficial due to its antibacterial, antibiotic and antifungal properties. *The Health Factory is my favourite brand – see details below. They also have a Nano Zinc and Zinc/Copper water that is very beneficial to promote healing and boost the immune system.
  • Other products to help boost your immune system are Beta Glucan, Astragalus, Vitamin C, Vitamin D etc. All available at Natural Dispensary – see details below.

*The Health Factory Nano Waters and other health supplements/products are available in the UK from Noble Naturals. Mention practitioner Julie Silver when ordering as they don’t usually deal with non-practitioners. Speak to Abigail on 01342 457170 or email
