Wellness Protocol for Battling a Prolonged and Intense Flu: Lysine, Vitamin C, D3, and Alternative Therapies
Normally, the flu treatment kills out the illness in a few of days 2-3, but this bug is proving to be a bit more difficult. What we're seeing is that it starts with indigestion, loose stools, nausea, vomiting, and severe congestion, and can linger for 7-10 days. The best treatment we've discovered for this problem is to alternate renal castor packs and coffee enemas while taking higher doses of L-Lysine, Vitamin C, D3, and quinine, which appears to assist but doesn't carry as much of a punch as I would think.
In this case, Lysine appears to be the main player. Remember, the purpose here is to provide the body with the chemicals it requires to fight. Lysine is an amino acid that aids the body in its battle against viruses of all kinds. D3 is a hormone that aids the body in absorbing critical ions to aid in the production of everything in the body, including white blood cells for the immune system. Vitamin C is essential for turning cholesterol into bile salts, making B vitamins like folic acid more useful, and increasing serotonin production.
In a nutshell, we consume increased doses of C for digestion, brain function, energy, and liver function. While quinine has been proved to be quite antiviral and aid in blood vessel tone, it does not have the same influence on other "issues." I would still take it, but if you're looking for a strategy to cut costs, I would skip the quinine. The detox organs play a significant role in this.
So, if you can perform the kidney castor packs and enemas, it will be extremely beneficial. You can also include lysine in the enema, which appears to be beneficial because it travels directly to the liver. Finally, remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Attempt to reach 100% of your body weight in ounces.
