My 20 year old daughter has recently been on antibiotics twice within 2 months due to throat issues.
Dear Terry, “My 20 year old daughter has recently been on antibiotics twice within 2 months due to throat issues (last time she had strep). She works in a dance studio with children all the time. Is there something you can recommend to help her keep her resistance up?” — Sylvia D., Dallas, TX
Dear Sylvia, If I were to come down with a cold or flu, I would turn to concentrated plant oils to relieve my symptoms and help me recover much faster. They also work to boost the immune system and help assure a healthy upper respiratory tract. These plant oils can be used when you start to become ill, or they can be used long term as a preventative, especially during cold and flu season, to give your body the extra immune strengthening it needs.
I would first recommend Ravintsara, Myrtle, Thyme, and Bay Laurel oils - up to 200 mgs twice daily - to help stop viruses, eliminate bacteria, and shore up the immune system.
In addition, I would also recommend Cinnamon, Thyme, Clove, and Oregano oils – some of nature’s most powerful antimicrobial ingredients - to help further boost the body’s natural defenses. I suggest taking a total of 75 mg of these oils twice daily.
Make sure to choose concentrated plant oils that are approved for internal use. Unlike essential oils used for massage and aromatherapy, these plant oils are tested and “fingerprinted” based on specific molecular makeup, species, marker compounds, purity and safety for internal medicinal use. The extraordinary potency of these tested plant oils allows for relatively low doses, but very powerful health benefits.
