9 Top Cold & Flu Herbs & Supplements

Whether you’re looking to prevent catching a cold or flu or to speed up your recovery when you’ve caught one, these nine herbs and supplements will be important tools in your healing toolbox.

You can use them year-round to help strengthen and support your immune system against colds and flus, or use them (or more of them) when you know you might have increased exposure to bugs, and/or when you feel the symptoms of a cold or flu developing.

These herbs and supplements are powerful healers for all kinds of chronic illnesses and symptoms too, not just for colds and flus. You may wish to include them if you have any symptom or condition at all. You can read more about the healing properties of each of these herbs and supplements on my blog.

Zinc, as liquid zinc sulfate, is an essential mineral for everyone to supplement for fighting colds and flus, for chronic illness, and also for health maintenance and future illness prevention. Zinc is a virus and bug killer. The onslaught of viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens we are faced with today in particular drains our zinc reserves. Almost everyone is deficient in zinc. If someone is so zinc-deficient that even the liver’s zinc reserves have dropped to a dangerous level, that person can develop a host of viral-related autoimmune diseases and illnesses, which you can read about throughout the Medical Medium book series. Zinc helps the liver’s immune system fend off every unfriendly microorganism that enters the liver, including cold and flu bugs. Try Medical Medium Zinc Shock Therapy at the first sign of a cold or flu.

Cat’s Claw destroys cold and flu bugs and other viruses, bacteria, and other unfriendly microorganisms. It strengthens the immune system to battle against colds and flus and brings stability to the body. Cat’s claw can aid in alleviating almost any symptom, from neurological to digestive. While cat’s claw has gotten some attention for its healing properties, it is as yet unknown to science that the herb contains bioactive pharma-compounds that supersede synthetic pharmaceuticals. All too often, antibiotics are employed against certain illnesses such as Lyme disease. The world would be a different place if cat’s claw took the place of antibiotics; the rate of illness would reduce, and recovery would quicken, regardless of the diagnosis for a given illness. Of course, pharmaceutical antibiotics have their place and purpose. Cat’s claw is unique, though, in that pathogens such as bacteria cannot become resistant to it, as they sometimes can to antibiotics. For more than three decades, I’ve espoused the miraculous healing benefits of cat’s claw because it is such an essential support for so many conditions and symptoms. Read more about cat’s claw.

Rose Hips Tea. Rose hips contain a bioavailable vitamin C that helps the body fight off viruses and bacteria. Sipping rose hip tea on the days when you take a vitamin C supplement is helpful because the the rose hip’s vitamin C will activate the supplemental form of it, making it stronger. The Ester-C I recommend already contains rose hip, which is one reason why it’s my preferred vitamin C.

Vitamin C, as Micro-C, not only helps fight off cold and flu bugs, but also strengthens the entire immune system, especially the killer cells that go after viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold and other unwanted fungus, all of which can weaken the immune system year-round. The strength of your immune system is directly related to how often you catch colds and flus and how severe they are. Vitamin C speeds up white blood cell recuperation and recovery time from colds and flus. Try Medical Medium Vitamin C Shock Therapy at the first sign of a cold or flu developing.

Lemon Balm is an incredible antiviral and antibacterial. It also helps with nausea, loss of appetite, and soothing and calming the nervous system, which is greatly needed when you have a cold or flu. This soothing ability means your nerves will be more relaxed and thus sleep will come more easily when you’re sick. Lemon balm is a fantastic herb to include year-round both for cold and flu assistance and chronic illnesses and symptoms. Read more about lemon balm in Life-Changing Foods.

Elderberry Syrup is one of the most effective remedies for viral and bacterial infections such as colds and flus and can substantially shorten the duration of time you are sick. Elderberries are also known to have the ability to significantly enhance immune function by boosting the production of cytokines in the body. In addition, they are very beneficial for bronchial and respiratory problems and can help loosen and expel congestion in the lungs. Get the recipe for homemade elderberry syrup on my blog.

B12 with Adenosylcobalamin and Methylcobalamin is the best form of B-12 for both chronic illnesses and symptoms and also for colds and flus. This form of B12 helps protect the nervous system and adrenals, which are weakened by fevers, flu bugs and any other pathogens. Plus, nearly everyone is deficient in vitamin B12 today. Even if you get a blood test that shows your vitamin B12 levels are normal, that doesn’t mean it’s usable B12 that’s absorbing where it needs to in your body. Your central nervous system, liver, or other organs may still be severely deficient, and a deficiency of the right kind of B12 sets the stage for all kinds of symptoms and conditions to develop or worsen. Lack of B12 is a very real deficiency with very real health consequences. The body relies on B12 for tens of thousands of daily functions.

Peppermint Tea is a gentle and soothing anti-spasmodic that calms intestinal nerves and spasms that can happen with a flu bug. It also helps relieve headaches and congestion and is an immune system booster. You can use fresh mint or dried peppermint tea.

Curcumin is a component of turmeric that reduces inflammation from an invader such as a flu bug or another pathogen. It also relieves pain and is fantastic for colds and flus, congestion, coughs, sore throat, and/or sinus problems. Curcumin is also a blood purifier and is an incredible support to the liver.
