    Half teaspoon each normal salt and potassium chloride “salt substitute”
    or
    Teaspoon “lite salt” it’s half/half sodium and potassium chlorides

    Just a fyi if it's the flu you need a lot more than the tea. You need the concentrate and I usually down a whole bottle spread out (like a couple tablespoons once an hour) the first day it hits. Spread the second bottle over two days etc. Elderberry really works best if ya hit it right at the onset if possible.

    Yeah, I do that. First sign of illness, and I'm downing the sambucol. But I was thinking maybe something everyday for prophylaxis.

    Hello Plantman,

    Another thread was started yesterday - more sick people!

    Praying for your boy.

    I hope you can say you and your wife, and especially your son, are on the downside of this and are recovering!

    Praying for your complete recovery.

    praying for you
    Mat6:12 - And forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. 1Thes4:16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.www.fidf.orghttps://www.mercyships.org/http://www.compassion.com/

    Praying for you and your family. I had broncitais (sp) in November and it took me almost 4 weeks to get right. I'm convinced I picked it up at the hospital when my husband was in for several days.

    I hope you guys are all doing better today. Glad to hear you were taking the boy to the Dr., though -- sounds like he'd had that fever for quite a while.

    Taking 1 T of elderberry syrup daily during flu season can help prevent or give a milder case by knocking viruses out before they can get a chance to make you sick. DH and I did that during swine flu in 2009, we still got it but he got a mild case, but I had stopped the elderberry because I got sick of it. And got a very bad case. I make my own pretty much likes Summerthyme's recipe.

    Yes. Elderberry ( whether sambucol, my syrup recipe, or any other effective form)works by *stopping influenza viruses from reproducing.* It doesn't kill the virus. "Viral load" is the medical term for "how many live virus cells do you have in your system? " The higher the viral load, the sicker you feel, and the more likely you are to develop dangerous problems like cytokine storm.

    We've found that we can take as little as 1 teaspoon of my syrup morning and evening for prophylaxis (prevention), and it works probably 99% of the time. (Lots of school teachers and corporate types who travel in flying germ capsules in our family).

    If we do start to develop symptoms of flu, we immediately move to a minimum of 4x a day dosing. In the case of the dangerous H1N1 strain in 2009, we took it every 3 hours... and the one day I skipped two doses because I was calling hay, I got so sick I couldn't have gotten out of bed the next day if the house was on fire.

    Early and often, and if someone is really ill, set the alarm and dose every 3 hours through the night, as well.

    I have always had a healthy respect for the flu. One time while in college, I got a flu bug on a Friday afternoon back in the 1980s. I was real woozy, like I was drunk. Apparently that flu strain was known to come up on you fast and lower your blood pressure. I floated home, skipped dinner and floated into bed with lots of blankets and just about passed out. I woke up 16 hours later. The bed was slick with sweat, as if I had jumped into a swimming pool and then jumped into bed. Other than being dehydrated, I was otherwise fine. The advantages of being young then. unfortunately I had missed a Saturday Morning field trip.

    That was one scary flu strain. I remember later reading about people dying from it.
