Natural Therapy Specific, Help

I need help in answering a few questions any help would be greatly appreciated.

What supplements would u give to a 25 year old female who is coming down with a flu and cannot call in sick because she has had a lot of time off due to illness?

What would give to a 50 year old female complaining of feeling depressed and lethargic?

What would you give to a 40 year old business man that is working 60-80 hour weeks, feeling stressed and rundown?

  1. airborne and lots of sleep

  2. fish oil, a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, enough meat

  3. ZMA, fish oil, healthy diet, massage therapy, relaxation techniques, brief exercise bouts

There is nothing you can do about the flu except the cliched rest and fluids.

The 50-yo woman needs to see a doctor.

NO supplement will help the 40-yo man more than sleep, a good diet, and some exercise. You can’t supplement away an unhealthy lifestyle.

  1. Get something called Del-Immune (think of it as a pro-biotic on STEROIDS) that was used in Russia way back in the day to treat anthrax and now can be conviently as a food supplement, eat some Brazil nuts and garlic to boost immunity for her, avoid processed sugars PERIOD.
