Without an effective vaccine, our only line of defense is strengthening our immune system and implementing an effective antiviral protocol.
After a lengthy conversation about herbals and the immune system, a friend of mine; John Greene, Master Herbalist, Nutritional Consultant and CEO of Adaptonic, recently gave me two tinctures he makes called ViraVade and Immumend to add to my regimen of healthy habits. ViraVade is potent and fast acting herbal formula.
How the formula works:
Lomatium is a wild crafted antiviral herb that has been shown to be more effective than even the most potent pharmaceutical influenza drugs. It works on respertory system specifically. It has a deep cellular viral detoxification viral effect; helping force out viruses that are deeply imbedded into the cells.
Cistus Incanus is another wild crafted herb harvested on sides of mountains in the Mediterranean .Cistus has an incredible ability to break down the viral envelope. This envelope is the mechanism which allows to virus to attach and enter the cells. Cistus effectively inhibits the virus from doing so.
Olive Leaf is one of the most potent antivirals known to man showing effective in killing HIV Hepatitis C, herpes simplex virus and Epstein Barr. This herb acts like a hammer to the virus, especially when the Lomatium has forced the virus out of the cell membranes and the viral envelope has been broken down by Cistus.
Licorice is another antiviral shown to effectively kill thousands of different viruses and supports the lung channels. This herb is used to also, help the herbal formula assimilate more efficiently in the system by softening the tissue, relaxing the organs and stimulating the formula into the system.
Immumend is a tonic formula consisting a specific combination of Adaptogenic herbs. Astragalus, Dang Shen, Gynostemma, Holy Basil, Reishi, Cordyceps, White Asian Ginseng and Licorice which work sinergistically together to boost the immune system through modulation, combat viral pathogens, strengthen the lungs and significantly reducing the effects of stress, which suppress the immune system and leaves our systems open to viral infections.
This formula is designed to be taken now and especially through the summer and fall, as the virus will mutate over the summer and as a result, will inevitably become stronger. Building your immunity now will provide solid protection from the virus later. This formula is effective as a preventative and also during an active infection.
There is not magic pill for this virus but I truly believe in the power of herbs in addition to a healthy diet, adequate sleep, and stress reduction.
