Nutrtional Products for Fall & Winter
Be proactive in protecting and enhancing your immune system in these cold, wintry months.  Strengthening the immune system with nutrition to be strong during cold & flu season makes good sense.  Try these simple and effective remedies, all of which are available in our office.


Total Flu-Cld #1:  This nasal spray contains Gelsemium and Byronia, which are the "two most frequently indicated homeopathic flu medicines used to treat the flu."  Homeopathy has the potential to make a dramatic difference in the flu epidemic withou the risk of drug side effects. 


#5 FL-CLD:  A safe, gentle herbal formula to support the immune system.  A sample of the ingredients include: Bayberry, Echinacea, Fenugreek, Ginger Root and Slippery Elm Bark, among others. 



Total Multimune: Provides support for the immune system with many well-known powerful nutritional ingredients, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B-6, Lycopene, Colostrum, Maitake Mushroom and Astragalus, among several others. 



Total Virx:  This powerhouse formula packs a punch against viral influenza infections both in the prevention and treatment of the flu with such potent ingredients as Olive leaf extract, elderberry, astragulus, Vitamin C, echinacea, goldenseal, beta carotene, Vitamin A, zinc and selenium. 



Complete Immuno D3 and Complete Hi D3:
"Compelling evidence indicates Vitamin D deficiency is the 'seasonal stimulus' responsible for flu outbreaks, and that doses of Vitamin D 'prevent many viral infections.'"  Did you know that Vitamin D deficiency also predisposes children to respiratory infections?  A daily dose of this "antibiotic vitamin" may be just the ticket to preventing nasty colds and flu for your family!  We have two varieties available; please ask which is right for you.  


A Message on Massage 
"Cupping" is one of the several techniques that Ivy Nadeau, LMT, uses and provides many benefits during cold season:

  • Helps enhance breathing
  • Relieves congestion
  • Drains excess fluids and toxins from the body
  • Increases blood flow to muscles by loosening adhesions and lifting connective tissue
  • Decreases sciatic pain and imflammation

In addition, Ivy can also provide lymphatic drainage on the sinus areas to help relieve sinus pressure.  Just ask!
