Eight Great Cold and Flu Cures!

Dear Readers,

With cold and flu season upon us, and standard medicine having "no cure for the common cold," it is good to know that our herbal "medicine cabinet" has many helpful tools.

I'm honored to present a guest article on this topic written by Chris Kilham, one of my favorite Herbalists and a friend I greatly respect. In this week's newsletter, Chris offers six herbal cold cures that really work! I would like to add two others that are natural and highly effective, but not herbal. These are:

1. ProBoost™

This is a natural product that mimics the immune regulating hormone "Thymulin." It is amazing for infections, and I recommend that every family keep a box in their medicine cabinet. Started immediately at the first sign of a cold, ProBoost routinely knocks it out by the next day. Dissolve one packet under the tongue three times a day.

2. Oscillococcinum

This homeopathic markedly shortens the length of a flu, but to be effective it needs to be started very early when symptoms first arise. Because it needs to be on hand, you should keep a bottle of it in your medicine cabinet. It is available at most health food stores.

Remember to stay hydrated, get your 8 hours+ sleep a night and to optimize your nutrition and immune system with the Energy Revitalization System. It'll prevent you from getting sick in the first place!

Enjoy!

ProBoost™ (Thymic Protein)

Best Natural Booster to Your Immune System!

25% Off
This week $49.95 $37.46

Our immune system, as remarkable as it is, wears out with age just like the rest of our body. In fact, the thymus gland, which is the centerpiece of the immune system, gradually decreases in size and functionality beginning at age three. By age 50, the thymus gland is no longer capable of producing sufficient levels of a critical thymic protein needed by the immune system to jump-start an immune response.

ProBoost™ was developed to meet this thymus shortfall. Thymic Protein A, the active ingredient in ProBoost®, has the same biological activity as the natural thymic protein that is produced by the thymus gland.

JOKE OF THE WEEK

We thank Gerry Bernard for this week's jokes. Gerry wins a free package of either the Energy Revitalization System vitamin powder or Corvalen (Ribose)!

The Older Crowd

A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office. "Is it true," she wanted to know, "that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?"

"Yes, I'm afraid so," the doctor told her.

There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied. "I'm wondering, then, just how serious is my condition? Because this prescription is marked 'NO REFILLS'."

........

An older gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery, and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to get the anesthesia, he asked to speak to his son.

"Yes, Dad, what is it?"

"Don't be nervous, son. Do your best and just remember, if it doesn't go well, if something happens to me, your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife."

........

Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

........

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

........

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me! I want people to know why I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

........

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.

........

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

........

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.

........

Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

........

Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today, it's called golf.

........

Put a twinkle in your eye, a smile on your lips, love in your heart, and spring in your step. Make people wonder what you've been up too.

........

Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder, and your hand over my mouth!
