Colds and the flu are the most common forms of upper respiratory sickness we know. The major difference between them symptom wise, is extreme exhaustion and fever with the flu, otherwise, the rest of the symptoms are the same for each. Colds are caused by something called a rhinovirus. Flu is caused by another of several viruses’ most common are influenza A, B, or C.
These viral elements are everywhere, all the time. What makes us more susceptible during October until April, is our weakened immune system because of all the sugar we consume during the holidays. Staying indoors and not getting enough sunlight is also a contributing factor. Sugar weakens our immune system’s resistance to these common microbes, so we see more of this problem during the holiday months. In fact, sugar can “stun” our white blood cells for up to three days! Listen to the Forbidden Podcast #87 – 101 Ways Sugar Destroy’s Your Health for more information. But better yet, our podcast #136 – What to do BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER the Flu! is very informative, and lastly Podcast #3 The Healing Triad (6-3-6). We have many podcasts about the Flu Shot, which should answer most of your questions. Start with #93 – What’s Worse – The Flu or the Vaccine? – Part 1

Flu and Colds Protocol
To Build Immune System BEFORE Flu Symptoms:
Immuplex, 4 a day (2 tabs, 2x a day). This is a formulation of vitamins & minerals to support the entire “Immune Alliance”, which affects multiple systems to create an overall immune response. This is for impaired immune function, which is unresponsive to other therapy, infections, bacterial and viral.
Calcium Lactate Tablets, or substitute with Cal-Ma Plus, 6 a day (empty stomach). f vitamin C is the “prima donna vitamin” in the body, calcium is the “prima donna mineral.” You must have diffusible calcium in the blood to reduce fever and strengthen immune. The Kellogg School of Ophthalmology discovered the calcium wave (where calcium imploded the bacteria) at the same time Lawrence Livermore was doing their work on the plague. You can read the amazing effect sufficient levels of tissue calcium has in the blood and cells of our bodies at: (kellogg.umich.edu/news/newsletter/spring2003.pdf).
Cataplex C, or substitute with Cyruta Plus or Cyruta (both are vitamin C on steroids), Cataplex A-C, or Cataplex A-C-P, 6 a day. An infection can only become overwhelming in the presence of a serious vitamin C deficiency. When vitamin C comes from food sources, and not just a chemical fraction (ascorbic acid) from a laboratory, its power is unparalleled in fighting infections. You can think of Cataplex C as the bullets in your immune system gun.
Cataplex F, or substitute with Cataplex F Softgels or Tuna Omega-3, 3 a day. Source of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are used to transport calcium from the blood to tissues. It “pushes” calcium into your tissues, muscles, lymphs, bones, etc., to assure high tissue calcium to fight and destroy pathogens.
Echinacea Premium Tablets, or substitute with Echinacea Purpura liquid, St. John’s Wort or Viranon, 1 a day. Major Immune modulating herb. Opens up the shell of an envelope virus. Regular long term use fortifies and strengthens your immune alliances and vascular system.
First Signs of Flu symptoms – add or increase dosages to the above supplements:
Immuplex, Increase to 9 a day
Congaplex, substitute with Cataplex A-C, RNA, Thymex and Cal-Ma Plus, 9 a day, 2-3 every hour. Immune system stimulator. Use for congestion, colds, fevers, upper respiratory infections.
Thymex, 9 a day. Promotes phagocytic & lymphatic activity, aids in decongesting lymphatic drainage, stimulates healing & defense mechanisms, stimulates general thymus immune responses. The thymus produces the killer T-cells.
Cod Liver Oil, or substitute with Cataplex D, 4 a day (For the vitamin D, if you’re not able to get out in the sun. Vit D pulls the calcium out of your gut to your bloodstream, for immune support. DO NOT take a synthetic vitamin D!)
Turmeric Forte, or substitute with Hemp Oil Complex, 1 tablet three times daily. (For inflammation and known antibacterial effects)
Garlic Forte, or substitute with SP Garlic, 1 tablet two times daily. A natural antibiotic. (Take Chlorophyll Pearls to help neutralize the odor – this will also help cleanse your blood!)
Andrographis Complex, 2 tablets 2-3 daily. Viral support. Supports the immune system and respiratory function and helps maintain normal body temperature. It also supports liver function. 6 a day or 1 every hour – depending on severity. If you have a sore throat switch to Astragalus Complex, 6 a day or 2 every hour you are awake – depending on severity.
If Flu or LungSymptoms Persist (Secondary Infection) add or increase dosages to the above supplements:
Immuplex, Increase to 16-18 a day. Formulation of vitamins & minerals to support the entire “Immune Alliance.” Affects multiple systems to create an overall immune response. Impaired immune function, unresponsive to other therapy, infections bacterial & viral.
Cal-Amo, 16 a day (4 tabs, 4x a day) This helps acidify the body which helps prevent the pH from slipping into alkalinity, which is where those secondary infections after the flu come from. A body that has a high alkaline pH is the opportunistic environment for the growth of pantheons: E-Coli, Strep, Pneumococci, Staph, etc.
Switch to Powdered Calcium Lactate, morning and night on an empty stomach. It’s now known, for example, that plague bacteria, that’s right – bubonic plague bacteria, Y. pestis, THRIVES in a low calcium environment!
Congaplex, substitute with Cataplex A-C, RNA, Thymex and Cal-Ma Plus, 3 every half-hour. Immune system stimulator. Use for congestion, colds, fevers, upper respiratory infections.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BULLETS BEFORE USING THIS PROTOCOL
- The protocol above is designed to address your issues at the foundational level, and not to treat disease. This means, in our opinion, most of our health problems, short of accident or trauma, are of a dietary nutritional deficiency. The listed protocol or supplement provides your body with essential micro and macronutrients to help and assist normal nutritional balance.
- Daily dosage are in ( ) parenthesis for most protocols; for example (6) means take 6 per day, but spread it out by taking half in the morning and half in the evening. Some protocols will have more specific instructions to follow.
- MediHerb products, shown in italics, often speed healing response and should be considered for most protocols unless contraindicated.
- We recommend adding the General Health Daily Fundamentals pack to each protocol. This adds in the critical foundational nutrition each protocol needs. It contains Catalyn––an entirely whole-food and glandular broad-spectrum multivitamin, Trace Minerals-B12, and Tuna Omega-3 pearls for your DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids daily requirements.
- Spacing out the daily doses throughout the day improves absorption and is strongly recommended.
- Most supplements should be taken with food except for PMG’s, most calcium products, Gastrex, Chlorophyll Complex™, Okra Pepsin E3, Cholocol II and Zymex II. Also, most herbs work more efficiently if taken away from food.
- Be advised that these nutritional and herbal products are not intended as a primary therapy for any disease, but rather to provide nutritional and herbal support to help normalize body physiology and repair.
