Protecting Employees and Profits Through Flu Prevention

Every year, 10 to 25% of Canadians may contract the flu 1. Employers are well aware of the impact flu can have in employee absences and decreased productivity, which is why over 70% of Canadian companies offer a workplace flu shot program. 2  Despite all these well planned efforts, companies report a dwindling number of employees electing to get the flu shot. According to Statistics Canada, only 24% of Canadians of got the flu shot in 2012 3.

Even when an employee gets the flu shot, the vaccine only includes 3 strains of the flu virus, which leaves individuals vulnerable to the over 300 other flu strains, as well as the over 200 viruses that cause the common cold. So whether or not one gets the flu shot, other protections are needed to keep your workers healthy during the cold and flu season. The most effective way to gain this protection is through strengthening the body’s natural defense systems which involves boosting the immune system.

Flu Services

Well Street’s Naturopathic Medical team has put together a variety of services to help your employees boost their natural immunity to gain maximal protection against the cold and flu.  These services are effective on their own or as a compliment to an existing flu vaccination program.  All services are conveniently offered on-site. Some services are covered under health benefits.

+Natural Immune Booster Clinic

The Natural Immune Booster Clinic provides an opportunity for you to prevent colds and flus using a Natural Immune Booster called Pascoleucyn Forte – a natural formula administered as a mild-tasting drinkable formula in less than 5 minutes at your workplace, by a registered Naturopathic Doctor.  This gentle yet powerful remedy provides broad-spectrum protection against all viruses that cause the flu and common cold with just one to two doses given per season, for a healthy adult.

The Natural Immune Booster is a highly effective and easily administered seasonal immune boosting remedy that helps to increase the body’s natural defenses against the flu and cold viruses. This natural remedy contains a unique combination of herbal and homeopathic medicines to prevent the flu and common cold.

This natural remedy is effective on its own and can also be taken along with the flu vaccine to help reduce side effects and lower the risk of other viruses not covered by the vaccine.
