Practicing integrative medicine in this small town of 10,000 people provides an opportunity to see patients of many different ages, walks of life and with multiple different types of medical problems. I began offering del-IMMUNE V® to patients in my practice that presented with cold or flu symptoms and with any type of illness that they would catch from another person. I have now used del-IMMUNE V® for four flu seasons, and have seen a positive response in over 75 percent of patients who are treated with the product.
del-IMMUNE V® has been a very effective immune treatment for upper respiratory tract infections, chronic cough (persistent over more than eight weeks), colds, bronchitis and fighting the influenza virus. Many of my patients return to see me and routinely give rave reviews, stating that they no longer miss days from work or school because they are using del-IMMUNE V on a regular basis.
Most of my patients were able to avoid having antibiotics prescribed because they used del-IMMUNE V® in the early stages of their illness. As an example, I have been amazed by the effect of del-IMMUNE V® on chronic coughs, and even as a lingering cough after a cold treatment during recovery from other illnesses. I recently saw a patient who started del-IMMUNE V. Previously I had treated her with inhalers and antibiotics but with no response.
Chronic cough is difficult to treat. Many of the common therapies are only effective about 40 to 50 percent of the time. Adding del-IMMUNE V to any other cough therapy is effective and safe. I did not make an either/or decision about del-IMMUNE V— it complements every other therapy I use for coughs.
