Catching a cold is pretty easy
A sneeze, for example, expels a virus cloud that actually falls at a rate slow enough to last for an hour! That’s just one reason why a cold is the most common of all human diseases, infecting adults an average of 2-4 times per year, and school-aged children as often as 10 times per year!
At Pearl Acupuncture we have some of the most effective formulas ready to go when cold and flu season arrives. They are formulas that can help patients avoid catching colds and flu, as well as, relieve the symptoms of these illnesses when you really need them. Please call us if you have any questions (503) 668-7631.

Congaplex, my favorite, contains thymus Cytosol extract and helps support the healthy function of the upper respiratory tract. The thymus gland is considered the master gland that regulates the immune system. Cytosol extracts from the thymus gland contain the building blocks of the powerful thymic hormone which supports and stimulates the immune system. Congaplex contains nutrients and tissue extracts that contribute to the healthy response of the immune system. I take this whenever someone with a cold comes into the office.
Echinacea C primarily supports the immune system, non-specific cellular immunity, by helping various types of white blood cells during phagocytosis. Echinacea also increases the number and activity of the neutrophils, an important part of the body’s immune system that maintains white blood cells. Echinacea-C combines this useful herb with vitamin C complexes from a variety of sources.
Immuplex combines vitamins A, B12, C, and E, folic acid, and minerals, such as zinc, copper, chromium, iron, and selenium. Immuplex contains bovine thymus, liver, and spleen tissue extracts–nutrients and tissues well known for their important roles in immune system health and function.
Zinc Supreme is involved in virtually every aspect of immunity. Zinc has antiviral activity, including activity against several viruses that cause the common cold. Supplementation with Zinc stimulates the manufacture of white blood cells and other system immune fighting components.
Vitamin D Synergy More and more research suggests Vitamin D deficiency may increase your risk for serious health problems. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that increases calcium and phosphorus, improves immunity, helps build strong bones and regulates cell proliferation and differentiation. It can be found in certain foods or be made in your body from sun exposure.
