Marie Asks:

I have had what feels like a sore throat with post-nasal drip since Christmas Day. Have used several oils like Invincible Immunity, Frankincense, hyssop, etc and have been to the MD 2x - its not strep. It seems as if my body is just holding onto a viral infection. Any recommendation to support my immune system?  BTW, I generally rarely get colds, viruses, etc.  Thanks

Dr. Streicher Answers:

Dear Marie,

After such a long time it is unlikely that it is still a virus.  If not strep it may be another bacteria.

I recommend inhalation the old-fashioned way; a pot with very hot water and towel over your head. Inhale several times a day for 10 minutes, either clove (4 drops), or oregano (2 drops). The steam should be hot but not uncomfortably hot. You may alternate between the two oils. The heat and moisture add to the effects of the essential oils.

Kind Regards,
