For the 8th consecutive year, Lakeside Natural Health Centre is please to offer an alternative or adjunct to the conventional flu shot, now in a convenient oral form (no needles!). Successfully used by medical doctors in Germany for over 60 years, the Pascoleucyn Forte preparation is a homeopathic formula that enhances your immune system’s protective response against all types of viruses, including those that cause colds and flus.

The standard flu shot contains actual viruses within it – two strains from last year’s season, and two “best guesses” for what this year’s strain might be. Since your body produces antibodies in reaction to these viruses, the flu shot only protects against those select strains of the flu virus. If you are affected by another strain, you may still get sick.

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is based on the principle that “like cures like”. The homeopathic preparation, pegged the “alternative flu shot” helps protect the body against anything that has similar symptoms to a cold or flu. It helps your body combat all strains of flu, as well as colds and other respiratory tract infections. Clinical studies performed on the oral preparation have demonstrated that Pascoleucyn has been shown to be extremely well tolerated and increase recovery times from upper respiratory tract infections. It is safe, even for infants and young children, and can be administered as an intramuscular injection or taken orally. The preparation is highly effective, even at first signs of feeling unwell. It can also be given as an added boost to the immune system if you still plan on receiving the conventional flu shot.
