FLU SEASON TIPS
Flu viruses are spread by infected people when they sneeze, blow their nose, or wipe away secretions from their nose or eyes. During flu season, especially when in public, everyone should avoid placing their hands to their mouths, rubbing your eyes and by all means wash your hands thoroughly several times a day, especially before meals.
Foods containing these vitamins are believed to help support the immune system. You can get your daily vitamin C from foods like Kakadu Plums, Acerola Cherries, Rose Hips, Chili Peppers, Guavas, Sweet Yellow Peppers, Blackcurrants, Thyme, Parsley, Mustard Spinach, Kale, Kiwis, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Lemons, Lychees, American Persimmons, Papayas, Strawberries, and Oranges.
Vitamin C is vital for your immune system, connective tissue, heart, and blood vessel health, among many other essential roles. Not getting enough of this vitamin can have negative effects on your health.
Drinking enough water each day is necessary to regulate body temperature, keep joints lubricated, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs functioning properly. Staying well-hydrated improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood.
Experts recommend drinking roughly eleven 8oz glasses of water per day for the average woman and sixteen glasses for men. Not all of those glasses need to come from plain water. Flavored water with fruit or vegetables (lemons, berries, or orange or cucumber slices), can be substituted, or from tea. Keep in mind that coffee is a diuretic and disperses body fluid, so avoid counting coffee consumption as “pure” hydration. Exercise also increases your daily fluid requirements, so adjust your intake accordingly.
Increasing your water intake helps you stay healthy and lessen the chance of you coming down with any illness or flu. When you are ill, drinking extra fluids prevents dehydration caused by fever, loosens mucus, and keeps your throat moist. Warm liquids are preferable, and there is evidence that inhaling steam early or during the course of a cold or flu may reduce the spread of viruses or pathogens in your upper respiratory tract.
RHMEDY™ is designed and intended to help DILUTE the number and concentration of irritants and microbes making their way into our sinuses and breathing passages. Using RHMEDY™ regularly will help to cleanse these diluted irritants from those areas, thereby assisting the body in its natural self-cleaning processes. In turn, this dramatically reduces the load on the immune system, thereby reducing the levels of immunoglobulins in the circulation. ONLY by REDUCING the circulating immunoglobulins, can we effectively enhance and maintain higher levels of ALBUMIN, which is the dominant and most crucial blood protein with dozens of vital functions.

Irritants and Pathogens
Germs - Viruses - Bacteria
Irritants and Pathogens are EVERYWHERE! They can be filtered to a large degree but that requires wearing a mask. They can also be diluted and cleansed or removed, THAT IS...
...one of the main mechanisms of our proprietary formula, RHMEDY. Pathogens are not able to defend against Oxidative/Free-Radical damage nearly as well as healthy cells. Therefore, one strategy to keep pathogens in check is to increase oxidative damage.
CDC lists H202 as Microbicidal

Immune System Support
Good Respiratory Hygiene
The World Health Organization recommends good respiratory hygiene of covering mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing...
Adding RHMEDY™ to your respiratory hygiene routine list may help reduce the risk of sinus infections and or the severity of Flu or Cold related illnesses by keeping the breathing pathways clear.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of:
• Shortness of breath
Some patients have pneumonia in both lungs, multi-organ failure and in some cases death.
- Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue.
- Wash hands often with soap and water.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, especially when out in public.
- Avoid close contact with those infected with a virus.
- Follow CDC, WHO, and your local government guidelines and safe practices, including social distancing, stay at home orders and avoid public gatherings.
- Practice good respiratory hygiene. Keep your breathing passages clear of microbes, germs, invading viruses, or pathogens by using RHMEDY™. Use with a Nasal Spray bottle, Sinus Rinse, Nebulizer or Humidifiers to deliver the microbicidal and anti-viral benefits of H202 infused RHMEDY™.
A pathogen is defined as an organism causing disease to its host, with the severity of the disease symptoms referred to as virulence. Pathogens are widely diverse and comprise viruses, bacteria as well as unicellular and multicellular eukaryotes. Every living organism is affected by pathogens, including bacteria, itself. Pathogens can cause a number of diseases that range in severity and how they’re transmitted.
While there are many different types of pathogens, here are the four most common types:
From the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI): “Phagocytosis is an active process, in which the bound pathogen is first surrounded by the phagocyte membrane and then internalized in a membrane-bounded vesicle known as a phagosome, which becomes acidified. …The phagosome fuses with one or more lysosomes to generate a phagolysosome in which the lysosomal contents are released to destroy the pathogen.
Upon phagocytosis, macrophages and neutrophils also produce a variety of other toxic products that help kill the engulfed microorganism (Fig. 2.6). The most important of these are hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), the superoxide anion (O2–), and nitric oxide (NO), which are directly toxic to bacteria.” – NCBI Article
From the CDC: “Reports ascribe good germicidal activity to hydrogen peroxide and attest to its bactericidal, virucidal, sporicidal, and fungicidal properties… Hydrogen peroxide is active against a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria, yeasts, fungi, viruses, and spores. A 0.5% accelerated hydrogen peroxide demonstrated bactericidal and virucidal activity in 1 minute and mycobactericidal and fungicidal activity in 5 minutes.” – Link to CDC
