I'm not able to take the flu shot without having side effects, such as blood in my urine. So, I had to find an holistic treatment for when I might have the flu.
The moment when I'm experiencing flu-like symptoms, I start taking the supplement, Sambucus Elderberry. I suck on two tablets in the morning and two at night, until I feel that my symptoms have lessened. After that, for awhile I suck on one tablet in the morning and one in the evening.
As a former classroom teacher, I know how easy it is to get sick, especially being around children and the stress that comes with the job.
