Image result for flu
It's finally April and although winter is still hanging around here in the Midwest, hopefully the flu season will be headed out the door soon. Much like the flu vaccine, another common method that the medical community is over-prescribing for the flu is Tamiflu. If you have read any articles on Tamiflu online or saw any coverage on the news, you would know that Tamiflu has terrible side affects- some of which are dangerous hallucinations and severe psychiatric symptoms, especially in young children, unfortunately. Instead of agreeing to your doctor's opinion on the flu shot or a Tamiflu prescription, we would like to tell you about another natural alternative protection from the flu- quercetin
What is quercetin
Quercetin is a plant- based antioxidant flavonol found naturally in apples, plums, red grapes, green tea, elder flower and onions and is also available in supplement form. It has strong antiviral properties that inhibit not only several strains of influenza, but hepatitis B and C and other viruses as well. It also combats inflammation and acts as a natural antihistamine. 
Research has found that quercetin reduces viral illness and boosts mental performance following extreme physical stress, which might weaken your immune system and make you more susceptible to infections and viruses like the flu.
We definitely recommend strengthening your body with quercetin naturally with food, like the ones mentioned above- make sure you are shopping in the organic section at your local grocery store or farmer's market. And like we also said, you can also get this antioxidant in supplement form to help ward off the flu and strengthen your immune system.
Thankfully we should be nearing the end of "flu season," but this is always great information to know since this wonderful natural immune booster can be a major benefit for your body all year long. We are looking forward to Spring weather around here, and hope you are too!

Dr. Wipperman is friendly, knowledgeable and really cares about your health. The excellent information he has to share about your spinal health is more than you might expect! His staff is warm and friendly, and really helpful. While I started seeing Dr. Wipperman for one specific problem, over the course of my care, I am truly seeing the benefits to my overall health. I highly recommend Ballas Chiropractic!
