The Flu Can Be a Brutal Enemy.
Are You Relying on a
Flu Shot Alone to Protect You?
The flu is expected to strike 24,700,000 people in the US alone this year according to CDC predictions
(which are usually accurate because they are based on previous years’
statistics). An estimated 41,4000 will
die from complications of their infection.
If you are you relying on a flu shot alone to protect you
from colds and flu this winter, the odds are not in your favor. With 200+
strains of flu viruses and over 700 different strains of cold viruses waiting to
have their way with you, a flu shot aimed at protecting you from only three of
these 900+ viruses can still leave you wide-open to life-threatening infection.
Even the majority of flu victims who recover still suffer from low energy,
immune weakness and respiratory symptoms for weeks or months afterward. As
“simple” and old-fashioned as the flu may sound, it is still a deadly disease.
Healthy Immune System Is
Your Best Safeguard Against The Flu
has a built-in safeguard against viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungus and even
cancer. This shield, called the Immune System, is far more effective than any
vaccination or modern-day drug against a wide range of diseases. Unfortunately,
many factors “inherent to modern life,” such as nutrient deficiencies, smoking,
stress, environmental pollutants, overweight, sleep deprivation, excess sugar
and carbohydrates in the diet and even aging, all weaken this incredible defense
system. Renewing the Immune System to a youthful level of performance can do
more for immunity than all the drugs of modern medicine combined.
Meet Your Mighty Immune System
has an entire “army” to protect you from foreign invasion. It is called the
Immune System. Like any good military, each “division” of this army has a
specific duty to perform --- far beyond just the white blood cells you learned
about in biology class.
system is one of the most complex and crucial systems in the body. It is
composed of organs, cells and immune factors. Your body’s cellular army includes:
- Natural Killer (NK) cells,
- dendritic cells
The body also produces a variety of
“immune factors” that direct the activity of the immune cells. These immune
Necrosis Factor (TNF).
The bone marrow, thymus, spleen and lymph nodes are also
part of the immune system.
these organs, cells and immune factors work in together to protect the host
(that’s you!) from infection by viruses, bacteria, parasites, protozoans,
funguses and cancerous cells. Because each part of this system works as part of the whole, when even a single “platoon” of this complex army goes AWOL, the
entire immune “military” is compromised, along with the health of the body it is
designed to protect.
Vaccines and Antibiotics: Boosting Immunity Naturally
like the “flu shot” activate only a small part of the immune system and only
against a few viruses, leaving the door wide-open for hundreds of other viruses,
bacteria, funguses, and parasites to infect the host. Antibiotics are only
effective against certain bacteria; they do nothing to prevent or cure viral or
fungal infections. And neither vaccines nor antibiotics improve overall
immunity. In fact, overuse of antibiotics can cause “Super Bugs,” deadly
bacteria that are resistant to all known antibiotics. In certain instances,
these drugs can be life-saving, but for overall protection from viruses and
bacteria, they pale compared to the body’s own immune system.
Fortunately, many herbs and nutrients are proven to stimulate immune function.
Not only do a number of these nutrients and herbs have a direct “kill” effect
like antibiotics, many of them also increase various aspects of immune response
in general, a feat that vaccines and antibiotics just can’t do.
Here's the Good News: Proven Nutrients and Herbs to Boost Immunity
- Vitamin A. One of the most highly documented nutrients necessary for normal immune
function, vitamin A increases neutrophil phagocytosis, cell- mediated immunity,
humoral response and interleukin-2 production. Recent research has found a
strong link between vitamin A deficiency and upper respiratory infections.
- Vitamin C. Like vitamin A, vitamin C has been the subjects of hundreds of scientific
studies. Vitamin C is antiviral and antibacterial, but its most potent effect is
to enhance immunity. It increases white blood cell activity, interferon
production, and thymic hormone secretion. Levels of vitamin C are quickly
depleted during infection. Other studies have shown that people who take higher
doses of vitamin C are less likely to contract colds and flu, and if they do get
sick, their illnesses are less severe and of shorter duration.
- Zinc The
essential mineral zinc is an enzyme activator that is necessary for normal
immune function. Unfortunately, it is a mineral that is often lacking in the
Standard American Diet (S.A.D.). Optimal zinc intake helps boost immunity and
also serves as an antioxidant.
- Echinacea (Echniacea
angustifolia) With over 400 scientific studies to its credit, Echinacea is one
of the most widely studied medicinal herbs. It’s value in enhancing immunity
well-proven. Echinacea activates NK, T-lymphocyte and neutrophil activity, and
stimulates interferon production. It also increases non specific defense
mechanisms including alternate complement pathways. In animal studies, Echinacea
- Astragalus (A. membranaceus) Human and animal studies have shown that Astragalus is a
potent antiviral, able to provide protection from the viruses that cause
influenza and the common cold by increasing T-cell activity and stimulating
interferon, interleukin-2, and IgA and IgG antibodies.
Mushrooms (Maitake, Shiitake, Reishi) act as immune stimulants and anti-tumorogenic
agents. They have been used by the Chinese for this purpose for thousands of
years and modern research has verified their immune-stimulating benefits. Beta
1,3 Glucan, a constituent of medicinal mushrooms, actives T-cells and stimulates
conducted in Japan with lentinan (a beta-1,3-1,6-glucan from the shiitake
mushroom) have shown an increase in immune Natural Killer (NK) cells and an
increased survival time in cancer patients, sometimes by more than five years.
In fact, Lentinan is considered a drug in Japan and is approved for clinical
medicinal mushrooms (and their active ingredient, beta-glucan) have been most
widely studied as immune-stimulating anti-cancer agents, they have also been
shown to be effective immune stimulants in a variety of infectious diseases
(including anthrax) as well.
- Ligustrum (ligustrum
lucidum) Ligustrum has been used in combination with astragalus in Traditional
Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Studies conducted in China show that
ligustrum stimulates the immune system, decreases inflammation and protects the
- Goldenseal (hydrastis canadensis) Goldenseal has both antibiotic AND immune-stimulating
properties. The active ingredient in Goldenseal, berberine, is a broad spectrum
antibiotic that is effective against variety of bacteria, protozoa, and fungi.
Bacteria that are vulnerable to berberine are Staph, Strep, and Enterococcal
species. Berberine also inhibits the growth of yeasts (such as Candida) which
often overgrow as a response to antibiotic treatment. Berberine further boosts
immunity by increasing the blood supply to the spleen and activating
- Quercetin is a flavonoid found in many plants including apples, onions, green and black
tea. Small amounts are also found in green leafy vegetables. Flavonoids occur in
nature in combination with vitamin C, and appear to protect and enhance vitamin
- Garlic (Allium
sativum) As a food and a medicine, garlic comes close to being a true panacea.
Research has proved garlic’s immune-stimulating ability, including activation of
NK and T-cells. Garlic has potent broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity against
alpha and beta Strep, Klebsiella pneumonia, Salmonella, Staph aureus,
Mycobacteriaum and Proteus spp. Unlike drug antibiotics, there is no evidence
that bacteria cen become “immune” to garlic’s effects.
Your Health Before It’s Too Late
By the time
you feel the first symptoms of a cold or the flu, the virus is already active in
your body. Even at this stage, immune-boosting nutrients and herbs can help
shorten the duration and severity of infection. But why risk even a mild
infection when you can safeguard your health all season long?
variety of immune-stimulating nutrients and herbs to your supplement program can
help you increase your body’s immune response by up to 200% or more --- and
protect yourself from ALL the season’s “bad bugs” and viruses --- not just a
Will You Make This Dangerous Mistake?
know why some people do this, but I’ve seen it many times. They learn about
immune-boosting herbs and nutrients. They decide it would be wise to add them to
their supplement program in order to protect their health, especially during the
height of cold and flu season. But they don’t follow through.
they wait until the fever and chills begin --- and by then, they’re often too
sick to run around town trying to find these healing nutrients. Even those who
manage to crawl to a local health food store can’t be sure of what they are
getting, and are often too miserable at this point to do good
research on the available products.
"due diligence" NOW --- while you’re feeling fine --- then lay in a supply of
immune-boosting nutrients and herbs and take them all Winter long. You’ll be glad to spend the
season infection-free, even when those around you are laid up with colds, flu
and other seasonal maladies.
Are These Proven Immune-Boosting Nutrients in YOUR Healing Arsenal?
I’m called “The Dragon Lady” in the nutritional foods
industry. Why? Because my standard for herbs and supplements is uncompromising.
I believe that “the most expensive
supplement is the one that doesn’t work.” You can buy a cheap formula
that you know nothing about and hope for the best. Personally, I don’t trust my
own health to any nutritional formula unless I am convinced of it’s potency,
purity and scientific formulation. That’s why I felt compelled to make my own
immune formula --- so I could be confident of it’s effectiveness.
the most well-researched immune-boosting vitamins, minerals and herbs and put
them into a single, easy-to-take formula called Immune System Support. Just two
capsules a day delivers the therapeutic doses of the herbs and nutrients
documented to improve immune system function. When added to a daily program of
nutritious diet, moderate exercise and optimal vitamin/mineral supplementation,
Immune System Support will do more to protect you from infection than any
vaccination or antibiotic could ever do. Although Nurse Mark and I are exposed
to sick people are year long, we rarely ever “catch” anything because we keep
our immune systems in shape with the simple, natural strategy outline above.
If you want
to do more to keep yourself infection-free all year long, and especially during
the “flu season,” you should be taking a proven immune formula that looks a lot
like my Immune System Support. Better yet, just take Immune System Support. I’ve
already done all the “heavy lifting” of research, formulation and quality
control for you. Here’s what I’ve come up with:
angustifolia root (4% echinacoside) 100 mg
membranaceus root extract 250 mg
mushroom TD-fraction extract 25 mg
mushroom powder 100 mg
mushroom powder 200 mg
mushroom powder 100 mg
lucidum fruit extract 100 mg
root (Hydrastis canadensis) 10 mg
sativum) bulb powder 50 mg
(as beta carotene) 2,500 IU
(as ascorbic acid) 100 mg
B-12 5 mcg
acid 5 mg
Zinc 10 mg
dose: 2 capsules per day for general immune enhancement. May be increased to 2
caps, 3 times per day for acute infections or additional immune support.
The Money Back Guarantee
My Accountant Says I’m Nuts to Offer
I mean NOBODY --- guarantees that you won’t get the flu. Did your doctor promise
you a money-back guarantee if you get the flu in spite of having a flu shot? Hahahaha. When it comes to seasonal viruses, nothing is a sure bet. But I’ve
scoured the medical literature with a fine-toothed comb. I’ve put the highest
quality nutrients into my Immune System Support formula. And I’ve used this
power-house of herbs and nutrients for years in my clinical practice, so I know
what results to expect. I might be crazy, but I’m not stupid. I want you to stay
infection-free this Winter, especially from a life-threatening case of the flu.
So here’s how I’m going to entice you to take Immune System Support all Winter
promise to faithfully take just two capsules per day of Immune System Support,
plus the daily multiple vitamin/mineral supplement equivalent of my Maxi Multi
formula*, I’m confident the flu won’t be able to touch you. If you get the
flu while you are taking Immune System Support and Maxi Multi's, I’ll refund your entire season’s cost of
both products. (I can’t
guarantee the effectiveness of someone else’s multiple formula). All you have to do is
promise to take your Maxi Multi’s and Immune System Support faithfully. I don’t
think you’d try and fool me about having the flu --- it’s far too serious a

other "seasonal maladies."
show that a ‘once-per-day” (one pill per day) vitamin supplement is worthless
for increasing immunity, but that an optimal daily dose of vitamins and minerals
(such as found in Maxi Multi), significantly increases immune function. These
immune-enhancing effects are most pronounced in seniors over age 65, although
they apply to all age groups.
all the risk. You don’t have anything to lose except your susceptibility to
colds, flu, bacterial infections and a whole host of other nasty infectious
diseases. How can you lose?
Supplies Are Limited
want you to be disappointed, so please order today to avoid missing out on this
offer. Our supply of Immune System Support is limited because we use only the
highest quality raw materials in this formula. Inferior herbs are easy to come
by, but herbs of the highest quality are like vintage wines ---
there’s only so much available each year and when it’s gone, it’s gone. I won’t
compromise my standards in order to keep pumping out an inferior formula. I’ll
just have to tell you that we are “backordered” until more becomes available.
But that won’t help keep you safe through flu season, will it?
selling junk, I’ve chosen instead to limit the number of people I can make my
“all winter long” guarantee to --- which includes making the formula available
continuously. My private practice patients who already take this formula get
“first dibs,” of course. Wellness Club Members also have priority. After
everyone in these two groups is locked in to their winter supply (I recommend
taking this at least through the end of April), I’ll make the rest available to
those few folks who see the wisdom in taking charge of their own immune health.
Those who sign up for “auto-order” will have their supply shipped every month
and will be guaranteed to “get the goods.”
Don't wait a minute longer…start
boosting your immune system NOW before the flu season hits.
