HEALTH BULLETIN #7 (December 7, 2010)

Hello Guest!
A couple of our favorite products for staying healthy during the winter months are highlighted in this note.

SambuGuard - an effective formula for the whole family.

With Wildgrown Elderberry, Certified Organic Echinacea and Vitamin C to support immune function
SambuGuard is a must-have for every household because it is a powerful combination of four potent immune-boosting* ingredients, in a delicious herbal syrup. Tastes great and safe for the whole family (children 2 and older).

This formula is most effective when taken to strengthen the body's natural defenses* during the fall and winter months. The herbs in SambuGuard work together to shield you from the after effects of cold weather, and have a positive over-all influence on the body's well-being. Sambu Guard boosts the immune system when the body is under stress.

Ingredients: Wildgrown Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) Fruit and Flower Concentrates, Acerola (Malpighia puncifolia) Fruit Powder, Certified Organic Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) Whole Plants 22:1 Concentrate, in a base of Water, Honey, Fructose, and Citric Acid.

Dr. Dunner SambuGuard Directions

SambuGuard should be taken at the first sign of ailment symptoms such as a scratchy throat or a "run down" feeling. Take 1 tbsp. up to 4 times daily to support immune function especially during cold weather. Will help the body fight off colds and flu. Refrigerate after opening and use within 8 days.

Another product that is a must for this time of year.


With Vitamin A, C, lung, thymus and adrenal support makes a great "all season" defense.

One of our patients' keeps a bottle on her desk at the office and one at home. Anyone around her who is sneezing, coughing, or grabbing for a kleenx due to a cold or allergy is introduced to Congestex.

Congestex is composed of food concentrates designed for immune system support and fighting sinus and allergy irritants resulting in sinus congestion, runny and stuffy nose, cough and cold symptoms. This supplement also provides a natural alternative to fighting the “common cold” when taken in high doses( four at a time, three times per day.) 

Suggested Use: 1-3 capsules per day. During periods of common cold symptoms, take up to 12 per day for a limited time.

Congestex Supports:

  • Immune System Function and Enhancement
  • Sinus Congestion
  • Symptoms of the “Common Cold”
  • Maintenance and Repair of Mucous Membranes Tissues which line the Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary and Genital Tracts

Dr. Roscoe warns against being a good "host" for the germs that are always present in our environment and eager to make a "home" in your body. Here are some things germs thrive on that weaken your immune system:
  • Just enough junk food (and Christmas goodies).
  • Just enough stress (don't let the relatives get to you.)
  • A lack of sleep (burning the candle at both ends. My dad always said one hour of sleep before midnight was equal to two hours after.)

So fight back -
  • Get adjusted and include a session of balancing neuro-emotional work and a relaxing massage.
  • Renegotiate the stress.
  • Sleep more.
  • Enjoy the holiday food, but don't stress out your digestive system. Keep portions small, avoid second helpings. (Remember: portions and choices.)
  • And if you got sick anyway, and have to take an antibiotic? Don't forget to build the good bacteria back up in your body with acidolpholus products such at Flora Ultra Strength by Innate or LactEnz by Standard Process.
  • And always, drink plenty of water.
The best health insurance is a healthy lifestyle. We want to help you stay healthy.

Vitamin D3

Nordic Naturals™
Vitamin D3
(120 Soft Gels)


Vitamin D Drops
(1 Fluid Ounce)


Great for the winter months.
Vitamin D deficiency has beeen linked to seasonal affective disorder (SAD), winter depression and to mood regulation more generally. Decreased exposure to sunlight in winter months, and the corresponding decrease in vitamin D production, may alter the production of the hormones - serotonin and melatonin which regulate mood and circadian rhythms. Vitamin D may suport mood and sleep rhythms by adjusting melatonin and serotonin levels in the brain and nervous system.




Stay healthy during the busy holiday season, fight off the stress of winter, and keep your immune system functioning at it's best by eating lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. They are harder to find this time of year, but still so very important. Another thing to do? Drinking V8, and taking food grade suppliments are also needed to get your daily supply of vegetables and vitamins.
