With the holidays upon us and our schedules over booked our immune systems become compromised due to lack of sleep and rest. The best way to protect yourself from the flu is to strengthen your immune system. Although there are many products out there, I personally recommend the healing wonders of whey/colostrum to strengthen your immune system.
With the growing concern Consumers have today about the safety of cold and flu medications, particularly for children, it has created an opportunity for patients to consider the benefits of homeopathic remedies.
Homeopathic flu remedies have been around for over 65 years and are backed by clinical studies. You can find these remedies in health food stores today. Homeopathic flu remedies reduce the severity and duration of flu and flulike symptoms. These wellness products are safe, effective and gentle on your body (it offers no drug interaction like herbs can)….even young children can take them. Typical over the counter flu remedies like Nyquil and more that offer negative side effects such as drowsiness, can interfere with school work, company performance and overall recovery time and wellness. I recommend that you keep a homeopathic flu remedy on hand at all times such as the Flu Terminator which you take at the onset of the flu. This product is the only homeopathic formula studied at Miami Children Hospital. (Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine Vol 13 2007) The research team concluded that Flu Terminator elicits a human immune response. Just pop one of these tablets sublingual; under your tongue at the onset of flu symptoms and let your body’s natural healing abilities do the rest. Another great product I recommend for flu season is the homeopathic Be Well Lung Drops; my son used this product when he had croup and he was better in within 24 hours.
So why consider using homeopathic remedies? Homeopathic medicine believes that the body needs to learn to fight illnesses and develop antibodies on its own. These remedies are made from plants and minerals and are designed to treat the person as a whole by getting to the root of the illness. But, please don’t take our word for it, read what others are saying about these products….

Whether you want to add lean muscle or improve your overall wellness whey protein combined with colostrum offers many health benefits. Whey protein is one of the most concentrated sources of essential amino acids available; its unique molecular structure makes it easy for the body to absorb. Whey protein has an excellent source of immune-enhancing compounds but combined with colostrum it makes it even more of a powerful healing agent.
A collection of studies show that some of the healing benefits experienced with the use of a whey colostrum product includes increase of lean muscle mass and endurance, increased buffering capacity of blood that is important for offsetting muscle fatigue which assists with the improvement recovery from hard training, decreased muscle breakdown, improved immune function, decreased risk of respiratory illnesses, can assist with weight loss, increased resistance to disease, assists with balancing blood sugar and enhances mood, improves autoimmune recovery (arthritis, asthma, colitis, cancer, Chron’s disease, diabetes, lupus etc.), assists with the prevention of cardiovascular disease, improves cognitive function, increases glutathione concentrates in relevant tissues, decreases inflammation, detoxifies potential carcinogens, provides protection against infections, increased post-surgical wound healing, promotes cell development, protection against oxidative stress, assists in slowing down the aging process, helps to repair “leaky gut” and creates stronger gut walls resulting in improved digestion, assists with the fight against osteoporosis, it assists in keeping your metabolic rate up and your hunger down. Studies show that there has been no severe adverse reaction linked to the consumption of whey protein products and that individuals with milk allergies find that casein is most often the culprit to their intolerance and therefore they are able to consume whey/colostrum products. But, if you are not sure, we always recommend that you check with your practitioner before altering your diet.
Relative to other protein sources, whey has a high concentration of branch chain amino acids. Luecine is helpful in the growth and repair of muscle tissue (such as bone, skin and muscles); it promotes wound healing and assists with energy regulation. It assists with the prevention of muscle protein breakdown that can occur after trauma or severe stress; it also stimulates insulin release. Valine in conjunction with other amino acids functions in regenerating tissue and is essential for a proper functioning nervous system, muscle development and coordination. Whey proteins are also rich in sulfur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine; which is necessary for normal metabolism and growth. Methionine helps to neutralize toxins, improve strength of tissue, and can assist with the prevention of depression. Cells in the liver and kidneys especially need this amino acid for regeneration. Deficiencies allow fat to be retained in the liver and symptoms may include; hair loss, poor skin tone and toxic waste buildup. Methionine has the ability to increase the body’s level of glutathione, which is very important in assisting with detoxification of the liver.
Dr. Clement’s Pro-Colos product offers a delicious blend of vanilla flavored Whey protein obtained from Hormone Free Cows in New Zealand and fresh Grade “A” U.S. Dairy colostrum. The vanilla flavor is so good that you can mix it alone in water or in our family we add it to our organic berry smoothies in the morning. Either way the benefits that you will gain from whey combined with colostrum are amazing. A recent testimony which you can find on my site”
“I just can’t function properly without my Pro-Colos; I feel like a slug and I work retail and am the only one who hasn’t gotten sick. I really believe it is the Pro-Colos. I also have acid reflux or should I say I used to have acid reflux and I don’t anymore. Pro-Colos is some of the best stuff I’ve ever spent my money on and my funds are limited, but I make sure I have this stuff. Many Thanks” submitted on October 15, 2010 by Brenda from Upstate NY. I personally have been consuming Pro-Colos for about a year and within 30 days my psoriasis all on my right arm and hand completely disappeared. I decided since psoriasis was an autoimmune disorder and that was probably caused by the “leaky gut” that my DO told me I had, I decided to try it on my son who suffered from Celiac’s disease. After 3 months of taking the Pro-Colos he was able to consume dairy, gluten and wheat without suffering any adverse side effects. My daughter also suffered severely from Eczema and after taking the Pro-Colos for several months she no longer has any symptoms. I personally believe that once you heal the gut the rest follows suit since 80% of our immune system is found in our gut. So choose to take control of your health today so you too can live a natural way to a better life.
So many people today suffer from diseases that are a result of poor digestion; but what causes our digestive tracts to become out of balance? Poor digestion is a result of beneficial and bad bacteria imbalances in your intestinal tract. When this happens, “leaky gut” forms where large spaces develop between the gut walls causing toxins and bacteria to leak in through the gut and into the blood stream. When this happens the body launches an immune response which has a negative effect on your organs. In return, diseases such as fibromyalgia, acid reflux, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), autism, acne and more develop. Reported back in 2001 by the Nutrition Business Journal, “approximately 41 million people suffered from some form of chronic digestive disorder;” so can you imagine how many people suffer today?
Now you are probably wondering what caused the bacteria imbalance in the first place. Poor diet, oral contraceptives, aspirin, pesticides, corticosteroids, parasites, excessive alcohol consumption, antibiotic usage, stress, and much more are the reasons. But you can take measures to help balance the bacteria in your gut; by taking a probiotic supplement that contains acidophilus and Bifidus. Now I am not talking about supermarket yogurt. In fact, yogurt is not an effective source unless the culture has been added to the yogurt. Health food stores carry cultured products such as kefir and acidophilus milk but many people don’t like the taste. So supplementing with a good non-dairy probiotic is recommended. In fact, studies show that non-dairy forms of acidophilus have antifungal properties and have been known to reduce blood cholesterol levels, aid in digestion and enhance absorption of nutrients.
Additional supplements that have been used to treat “Leaky Gut Syndrome” include enzymes; such as amylase for carbohydrates, lipase for fats, protease for proteins and cellulose for fiber. Also used are vitamins B, A, E, and C, Zinc, Selenium, magnesium, manganese, N-acetyl cysteine, psyllium husk powder,essential fatty acids. Remember like anything else, you get what you pay for; so we recommend Dr. Grade nutraceuticals to ensure effectiveness. Consider Powders and liquids for quicker absorption.
Along with the above suggestions, my family has personally used Pro-Colos to restore gut health. Pro-Colos uses a combination of colostrum and whey protein; rich in free form amino acids which can easily pass through the lining of your digestive tract increasing absorption. This vanilla flavor powder tastes great and the colostrum works to balance your immune system while promoting cell repair. So consider the natural way to reestablish intestinal health and reap the benefits of a better life.
Do you suffer from an autoimmune disorder? One of the things that I learned from my personal experience with psoriasis is that if I used a product that only boosted my immune system, it would make my autoimmune disorder worse. Conditions such as psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis are characterized by an overactive immune system that begins to attack your body’s own tissues. So, stimulating my immune system would aggravate my psoriasis. However, six months ago I was introduced to Pro-Colos; a delicious tasting whey protein powder that contains colostrum which works to balance the immune system and promote cell repair. The special blend of Pro-Colos is rich in immunoglobulins and peptides. The whey protein is rich in free form amino acids which can pass easily through the lining of my digestive tract. Other products due to their form have difficulty surviving strong gastric acids and digestive enzymes making it difficult to pass through the digestive tract causing an inability of absorption in the body.
Our immune systems are complex yet serve as an effective defense; protecting us against foreign invaders like bacteria, viruses, and fungus. Toxic environmental substances such as chemicals and pollution in the atmosphere, pesticides from foods and much more, continuously try to attack our bodies creating havoc. When our immune system is healthy it works to detect, identify, and destroy danger to our health. Maintaining a healthy immune system is the key to overall wellness and Pro-Colos helps to support that.
Additional benefits of Colostrum with Whey protein include the promotion of muscle growth. Whether you are a dedicated bodybuilder or dedicated to other forms of exercise and endurance like Pilates and yoga, colostrum offers huge benefits. Colostrum helps to keep your metabolic rate up and hunger down. In addition, it helps increase muscle mass and strength, as well as prevents fatigue, by buffering acidic levels that commonly rise during exercise. When I first started back on my work outs; focusing on my overall wellness, I was weak and could barely hold a yoga pose. After taking Pro-Colos for just 30 short days, my psoriasis completely cleared and I was well on my way to building muscle mass and gaining strength. This was just one of the benefits that I reaped; nutrient absorption was another.
Digestive health was also gained from the use of Colostrum; not just for me but for my six year old son. He was diagnosed and suffered from Celiac Disease; a gluten sensitivity that had me constantly watching his every bite of food which became challenging. Once I saw the health benefits that I personally gained from the use of Pro-Colos, I decided to give it a try for my son. Every morning I make my family an organic berry smoothie where I add the Pro-Colos. This vanilla flavored powder adds to our smoothie and even tastes great. It can also be mixed on its own with orange or other juices. Within 30 days my son’s gluten sensitivity began to improve and slowly I started adding foods back into his diet. Now, my son can eat anything healthy and not have a reaction. No longer do I need to read the back of every package to determine what kind of flour is being used. Healing came with the Pro-Colos by the improvement of digestion and the repair and protection from leaky gut; micro punctures in intestine linings caused by improper diet and the over consumption of chemicals through food processing leading to an over growth of yeast in the intestines. Pro-Colos works to repair gut walls providing freedom from leaky gut.
So, as you can see there are many health benefits gained from the daily use of Pro-Colos; I feel fantastic and love the results. Whether you suffer from health conditions or want to improve your muscle mass, consider Pro-Colos today. It’s your choice to experience wellness and I want to encourage you to “Take control of your health so you too can experience a natural way to a better life.”
