cquell180One of the advantages I have being an Alternative Health-care professional are the tools of the trade that I’ve picked up along the way. My medicine cabinet is filled with herbal remedies for anything from PMS to fullness after meals.  One of my favorites and the one I recommend most frequently is an original formula made by Blue Poppy Enterprises, Inc. called Cold Quell.

Based on the formula, Xiao Chai Hu Tang Si Wu Tang Jia Jian (that’s Chinese for a bunch of herbs mixed together), this herbal supplement can be used at first sign of common cold and flu, characterized by sore throat, fever and headache. I take 3 capsules twice a day for three days and, more often than not, alternatively I use other things to help my cold and flu like the Purple Tangie  and I never miss a day of work.

In most states, Cold Quell and other herbal supplements can only be distributed by a licensed professional.
