Echinacea prevents the flu virus from being able to bind to the surface of our cells.
Elderberry and Licorice act against the flu virus in different ways.
Ron’s class was absolutely, and masterfully designed to visually show us what precisely is involved with these micro-movements at the level of organ physiology and biochemistry.
Ginseng has powerful antiviral effects and has been supported in numerous studies.
NAC, Glutathione and Vitamin D are research supported elements to support immune function.
Diet, nutrients, herbs and other alternative approaches to flu prevention and recovery are solidly based in research.
The best prevention is protection. This includes supporting the immune system in a prophylactic way as well as protecting yourself from contact with others who are infected.
The flu season is in full swing. There are reports of severe cases of the flu in almost every state, and in some states even death. As of the date of this post some reports of over 20 deaths in Washington State.

“The urge to simplify may have its roots in the wish to see the gut as a consequence of a single perfect design experiment whereas in reality the control mechanisms of the gut are the messy result of adaptive changes over millions of years that have created complementary and overlapping control systems. All these systems together reliably perform the task of moving and mixing gut content to provide us with essential nutrients.”
Studying human anatomy from an evolutionary perspective, on some level, is almost a spiritual exploration because it provides us with a deeper understanding of the processes of change, which is always at work, always occurring, never ceasing.
