Recently we have been informed that 5th’s Disease is going thru the Seattle area schools. Although those is a routine childhood illness, it can be devastating to adults that catch it. Once again I would like to address how to prevent catching a virus. First and foremost good health habits such as good diet, good hydration, appropriate sleep, no sugar, etc. But other things to consider: high dose vitamin A (50,000-150,000 IU), single high dose of vitamin D 25,000-100,000 IU, anti virals such as echinacea, astragelus, sambucus. We have many forms that are child friendly. Please be aware that vitamin A and D are fat soluble and can be toxic. So, if you are uncertain of your dosing contact your physician at Emerald City Clinic. Yours in health, Molly Linton
