I have heard something about loading up on vitamin c, Just because of the nature of the sickness, I would eliminate ANY and ALL mucous forming foods--ncluding dairy and soy. Other than that I have no idea. Do you know of any holistic practitioners?
I just ran and got my book, it says a liquid diet during acute stage with juices, broths, and water. add steamed vegetables, brown rice, pineapple, and grapes after crisis has passed. Crystal Star STRESS OUT muscle relaxer drops and ANTI-BIO capsules as an immune stimulant. Use B&T COUGH AND BRONCHIAL syrup to reduce sleepless nights caused by coughing/ give vitamin c with bioflavanoids, 1/4 tsp. every hour until stool turns soupy. to soothe respiratory tract marshmallow root, slippery elm bark, or osha root tea or lobelia extract. apply hot ginger-garlic compresses to chest; use a eucalyptus steam in a vaporizer at night.
hope that helped!
