Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are much healthier for you than taking antibiotics or getting the flu shot.  Specific Chinese Herbal Formulas kill bacteria and denature viruses, leave the digestive flora intact, and have no side effects.  


Doctors of Chinese Medicine have fine-tuned these formulas over hundreds of years. Chinese Herbal Formulas usually consist of 8 to 16 herbs that act like a committee to get the job done:  The first few herbs do the main job.  The herbs below that help to support those herbs.  Then there are important herbs that help with digestion and to help balance the chief herbs.  Lastly, there is an herb that helps to harmonize so that all the herbs work well together.

Ilex -- take 2 per day throughout the cold and flu season or when you're around anyone sick or going on an airplane. 

Ilex zaps bacteria and viruses so that your immune system doesn't have to do all the work.  Ilex is better than Echinacea as Echinacea increases White Blood Cell production while Ilex does not.  Because Ilex does the work, you will have MORE energy.
