Updated With More Products For The Entire Month Of September>> Back To School Wellness Protocol
Most of our kids are back to school in way or another and with that comes parent concern with keeping their little ones and bigger ones healthy. This month, due to an overwhelming response, I decided to re-run last month's product specials, as well as add some additional kid-friendly products. I have found these products to be the most effective for illness prevention and immune support when dealing with viral and bacterial infections. You’ll be able to stock up your medicine cabinet with these products to have on hand or put together a care package for kids going away to school.
Supporting a Healthy Immune System
With all the fear surrounding Covid-19 and the upcoming flu season, it’s important to maintain proper health through diet, lifestyle, exercise and taking the proper dietary supplements.
Managing stress and getting proper sleep also plays an enormous role in maintaining optimal health and immune function. I have several products that can be helpful for stress management as well as achieving a better night’s sleep. This month's theme is immune system health and we are offering 10% off the following immune health related products.
Natural Supplements for Immunity Support
For the entire month of September Dr. Aieta will be continuing his back to school promotion with the addition of his four NEW great tasting, GUMMY products.
Anti-VRL Complex: This product contains 4 extremely powerful ingredients that can play important roles in combating viruses and enhancing the immune system.
Each capsule contains therapeutic amounts of the following:
- Monolaurin is a compound made from lauric acid, which is found in coconut milk and breast milk. It has been used historically for preventing and treating colds (the common cold), flu (influenza), swine flu, herpes, shingles, and other infections like the Coronavirus. According to research, monolaurin works by binding to the lipid-protein envelope of the virus, thereby preventing it from attaching and entering host cells, preventing infection and replication. It also destroys the viral envelope, killing the virus.
- Olive leaf Extract has been shown in the research to have strong anti-viral properties against many different viruses as well as bacteria species. An added benefit of this product is that it protects the cilia of the lungs that can become damaged by certain viruses which can prevent the expectoration of phlegm which can result in pneumonia associated with viral infections.
- Isatis is a broad-spectrum antiviral that is directly virucidal and inhibits the replication and attachment of the virus to cells. Research shows it to have very specific antiviral actions against all strains of the flu and the SARS group of viruses.
- Scutellaria Baicalensis also known as Chinese Skullcap, like Isatis, is also a powerful broad-spectrum antiviral. This herb blocks viral attachment in the lungs, regulates the inflammatory response in the body, and stimulate the body’s innate resistance to viral infections.
Ehanced Liposomal Vitamin C: Everyone knows that vitamin C is good for the immune system and it helps us get over colds and flues much faster when taken in higher dosages at the first sign of any issue but not all vitamin C is created equal.
Most vitamin C products that are available over the counter contain simple ascorbic acid in a capsule or tablet form. The problem with this form is that at the dosages needed to achieve a therapeutic value with immune function and antiviral activity; high dosages (above 1000mg per day) are needed. When one takes above 1000mg of regular vitamin C per day, less than 50% is absorbed and the rest stays in the bowel leading to gas, bloating and loose stools.
By using a liposomal form, vitamin C is absorbed like dietary fats. It is taken up by the lymphatic system with an estimated 98% efficiency.
Vitamin D-3 Mulsion Liquid Vitamin D: Vitamin D enhances the body’s ability to fight off viral pathogens that enter into the body. It works by helping our immune cells make an enzyme that helps liquefy the pathogen once it’s been engulfed by these cells.
One of the reasons why we are more prone to colds and flues in the winter is because of the lack of sunlight this time of the year and with less sunlight our bodies produce less vitamin D leaving us more vulnerable.
I recommend that everyone get their vitamin D blood levels checked so they at least have a baseline. An ideal blood range for vitamin D this time of the year is between 65-75. I will routinely see patients with levels in the single digits which can make them very susceptible to infections.
*The liquid form is great for younger children that can’t swallow the capsule form.
Herbal Immuno-Biotic: This powerful blend of vitamins and herbs works excellent when taken at the first sign of any infection. It is excellent for high dose short term use and lower dosage long term use. This is an important one that I personally keep on hand in my family’s medicine cabinet.
Immuno-Boost Powder: This virtually tasteless powder can be added to water or your favorite beverage and taken 3-4 times a day at the first sign and for the duration of illness. It’s great to use with all age groups but specifically for young ones that can’t swallow pills yet.
The active ingredient in the product is called arabinogalactan that is a fiber derived from the larch tree that helps activate specific immune cells to support optimal immune system function. It also helps maintain healthy bacteria in the digestive tract.
Natural Supplements for a Healthy Stress Response, Mood, and Sleep
Adrenal Stress Support: This powerful combination of vitamins and herbs was designed to support the adrenal system, which plays a role in our ability properly manage stress.
When we are placed under stress our body requires additional nutrients to help our bodies appropriately deal with and recover from it. These include vitamin C, B-vitamins and the constituents found in the herb Ashwagandha. When stress overwhelms our adrenal system and we can’t properly recover from it we are more prone to acute illnesses.
Mood Support Formula: Dr. Aieta’s Mood Support Formula is a powerful blend of 5-HTP, Methyl Folate, GABA, Rhodiola, Theanine and Taurine, all at therapeutic doses. This product works to quell anxious and low moods by naturally balancing the brain chemicals serotonin and GABA.
Super Phyto-Cannabinoid 1800: The phyto-cannabinoids found in the hemp plant can be extremely beneficial in helping the body deal with stress, difficulty sleeping and proper immune function.
This product can be taken during the day at mere drop dosages and slightly more before bed for a more restful night’s sleep.
Here is a testimonial from a long time patient who was suffering from chronic ear infections and frequent colds who had excellent results from my multi-step approach, which included this month’s highlighted products.
"Dr. Aieta has been our family doctor for close to 5 years now. Prior to coming to see him my little ones at the time were constantly catching every cold that came around. Both boys also seemed to always have chronic ear infections which prompting my husband and I to allow the doctor to place tubes in their ears.
Through blood testing, Dr. Aieta identified numerous food sensitivities and allergies that he felt were contributing to their frequent colds and ear infections. He also noted numerous nutrient deficiencies such as vitamin D and C. In addition to the dietary changes he also put them both on his liquid vitamin D and C as well as several other immune boosting supplements.
We have religiously adhered to Dr. Aieta’s suggestions over the years and both boys, now almost teenagers, have not had one ear infection since we started with Dr. Aieta. Also, they now may only get 1 or 2 mild colds a year that we treat naturally with Dr. Aieta’s recommended products. I can’t thank Dr. Aieta enough for taking such good care of my boys over the past 5 years and look forward to him supporting their health for many years to come."
