Now available: Upper Respiratory Support from Robert Rountree, MD
In Immunotics, co-written with Carol Colman, Dr. Robert Rountree writes about his belief that it’s possible to maintain a vigorous immune system well into old age and that not taking adequate care of ourselves “accelerates immune decline”. Further, he explains that when we support our immune systems, the benefits extend to every other system in the body–from brain to heart.
Rountree’s approach to immune support offers lifestyle and supplement recommendations ranging from the basics we all should consider following, to specialized approaches for adults over 50, people living or working in high-risk environments or those with GI concerns (to name a few).
While some patients are able to commit to health regimens that support them all year long, others may only seek that support when concerns arise. Upper respiratory concerns are one of the most common reasons patients seek a health practitioner’s care–particularly during the period from September to March when cold weather keeps many of us inside and in close contact.
If you have patients who regularly fall into any of the following categories, this upper respiratory support protocol from author, educator and practitioner, Robert Rountree, is informed by over 30 years of traditional family medicine, nutrition and medical herbology.
Consider upper respiratory support for patients and their families who:
- Have weakened immune systems
- Are under age 6 or over age 50
- Regularly spend time in crowded or closed-in areas like buses, trains, planes or subways
- Work in hospitals or institutions, work in or attend schools or daycare centers where conditions are crowded
