Three Natural Remedies that Fight Infections for You


By: Gluten-Free Remedies and Alexander Shikhman, MD

Here is a list of three very effective natural infection fighters.

Elderberry & Zinc Lozenges

Elderberry also known as Sambucus nigra or European elder has been used for centuries to treat colds and flu. Current research indicates that chemicals from elderberry may help reduce swelling in mucous membranes (such as the sinuses) and help relieve nasal congestion.

Elderberry also possesses anti-inflammatory, antiviral and anticancer properties. In addition, zinc stimulates immunological mechanisms mediating body defense against flu and some other respiratory infections.

These can be used for:

•    Cold and flu
•    Sinusitis
•    Mucosal dryness/Sjogren’s syndrome
•    Zinc deficiency
•    Canker sores
•    Oral candidiasis/thrush
•    Herpes simplex

Olive Leaf Extract

Many people who live stressful lives or who may be particularly susceptible to colds and viruses may benefit from long-term use of olive leaf as a preventive agent.

Olive leaf’s broad killing power includes an ability to interfere with critical amino acid production for viruses; an ability to contain viral infection and/or spread by inactivating viruses by preventing virus shredding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane and has the ability to directly penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication.

Best used for:

•    Natural therapy of bacterial, fungal and viral infections (in particular, gastrointestinal infections)
•    Treatment of shingles
•    Treatment of inflammation and pain
•    Treatment of inflammatory arthritis
•    Treatment of chronic fatigue


EpiCor possesses antioxidant activity, increases glutathione concentration in erythrocytes and inhibits growth of certain pathogenic microorganisms. EpiCor enhances the ratio of helper to suppressor T lymphocytes (CD4/CD8), stimulates natural cell (NK cell) activity and increases immunoglobulin A (IgA) synthesis.

Best used for:

•    Acquired / stress induced immune deficiencies
•    Partial IgA deficiency
•    Chronic sinus infections
•    Allergic rhinitis
•    Prevention of flu and upper respiratory infections
