-NAC (Pure Encapsulations caps)– 600 mg, 1-3 times daily, between meals.

-Quercetin (Allergy Research Group or Designs for Health powder) – 600 mg, 1-2 times daily with meals

-Magnesium Glycinate or Citrate200-300 mg 1 time daily.


Winter Acute Kit

Everything above plus:

-Aqua Mira – Mix 10-25 drops of Part A and 10-25 drops of Part B in container provided and let sit for 5 minutes. Then add to 16 oz of water. Drink immediately on empty stomach. Take 2 times per day. Or use as directed on the package.

-Double doses of Zinc

-Double doses of D Supreme

-Add Black Seed Oil – 1 teaspoon, 2 times daily in local honey.

-Plus: A, B, and C from below. D is as needed:


A.- Choose from one of the following formulas:

  1. Winter Rescue: Mix 1 tablespoon into water or juice and drink throughout the day.
  2. Scutellaria Plus Formula: 1 Tablespoon – 3- 6 times per day mixed into water or juice.

 B.- Choose one or both of the following cough aids:

  1. Super Elderberry Syrup – 1 tablespoon, 3 or more times per day. Alternatively: 1 teaspoon may be used every time you cough.
  2. Marshmallow / Ginger tea – to prepare, mix 2 oz Marshmallow root c/s with 1 heaping teaspoon Ginger root c/s. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of this mixture in a muslin bag. Add 4 cups water to a saucepan. Immerse bag and let sit overnight. In AM (with clean hands), squeeze muslin bag out well, capturing the tea in the saucepan. It will be gooey. (It’s okay if some pieces come through the bag as you can just strain it out later). Bring to a low simmer in the pan for 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Drink hot or at room temperature throughout the day.

C.- Use these together as fever aids:

  1. Ginger Bath
  2. Elder Flower Tea (can also use Boneset or Yarrow herb / flower)


  1. Make a hot bath with 1 tablespoon of Ginger root powder stirred in. Soak for 20-30 minutes. Rinse off Ginger from body when done.
  2. During bath, drink 2-3 cups Elder flower tea. This is your “sweat herb”.
  3. Following bath, drink as much water as you can hold with added minerals or a pinch of Celtic salt. Alternatively, drink natural, unsweetened coconut water.
  4. Get into bed and pile up the covers to allow for more sweating. Sleep.
  5. Continue to drink lots of mineral water or coconut water during the day to replace minerals lost from sweating.

D.-Head Relief aid:

  1. Boneset tincture – 1-2 droppers as needed

Other Considerations:

-Melatonin: Begin with 0.5 or 1 mg and increase as tolerated to 6 mg before bedtime (causes drowsiness).
Slow- or extended-release formulations preferred.

-Colloidal Silverwash mask with soap and hot water daily. Once dry, spray mask inside and out once or twice a day anytime you are wearing it. May also spray throat several times daily.-Megacidin antimicrobial/probiotic throat spray – spray into the back of the throat several times daily.
