Stop Colds & Flu in Their Tracks

In This Issue:


‘Tis the Season for colds & flu…

We hope you enjoyed last month’s newsletter! With October here, it’s time to enjoy autumn’s beauty. It is also time to prepare for a drop in temperatures, which make us spend more time bundled up indoors. This creates the perfect scenario for colds and flu to make an appearance. In an ideal world we would never get sick, but lets face it- most of us deal with either a cold or flu at least once a year. Do you know how to tell the difference between one and the other?

Learn how to distinguish a cold from the flu

Also in this month’s issue, we explore the importance of hygiene in the home, workplace, and even your car! Did you know that you may be driving, working and living in a germ- infested environment? A recent study has shown that bacteria and viruses are lurking where you least expect it.

Learn how to keep germs from taking over your life and health

Finally, since many people cannot even consider taking a sick day, we thought of offering useful tips to boost your immune system naturally without having to resort to artificial supplements. Believe it or not, if your digestive system isn’t functioning at its best, you may also be forcing your immune system to work extra hard.

Learn what to eat to reduce your chances of getting a cold or flu

As always, we'd love to receive your feedback on our newsletter, and any thoughts or suggestions you may have. Thank you for choosing Native Remedies!

What's That Sneeze Telling You?

The differences between a common cold and the flu

Millions of Americans fall prey to colds and flu each year, but do they really know which bug is bugging them? There are big differences between the a cold and the flu, and it's important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of each.

Generally speaking, if a cold is misdiagnosed with the flu, there isn’t much of a problem. However, a dangerous situation can arise when the flu is misdiagnosed with a common cold.

Halting Illness with Hygiene

Spring cleaning might be good during springtime, but cleaning during cold and flu season calls for more drastic measures. You can avoid getting sick by changing the way you clean... yourself!

Is the key to staying healthy during cold and flu season as simple as hygiene?

It’s a fact; we are surrounded by germs no matter where we go: the supermarket, public transportation, work, everywhere! Our body can handle most of what we come in contact with, but with the fall season around the corner, you can be more proactive in taking steps to protect yourself and your family.

"How to go about taking child off meds and switching to herbal remedies? How important is diet?"

- Cheryl


Hi Cheryl, 

We have two great products which can be used on their own or in combination. BrightSpark™ and Focus Formula™ are both proven over thousands of
satisfied children, adolescents and adults, and are non-addictive with no side effects. Each product is effective on its own – however, the best recommendation is a combination of the two products. By using a combination of two remedies that work differently, you have the best chance for success.

BrightSpark is very effective -- as a homeopathic remedy, one would take it every day, including on weekends. Some children immediately benefit from BrightSpark, while for others it can take up to 3- 6 weeks for full effect. However, it is ultimately extremely effective. BrightSpark comes in small sucking tablets, taken 2 at a time, 3 times daily.
