Well it is here the dreaded Cold and Flu season! It's been a tough season so far "Influenza A" with some of the highest fevers we have seen in years 102-104. So be prepared
Nutritional Support -A few of the "must have's for winter" actual dosage depends on weight, age and nutritional status.
Vitamin C: Ascorbic acid - Average for an adult when you feel like coming down with flu is 1000-2000mg every 2-3 hours
Vitamin A from Fish oil - Adults 2 days 100,000 iu then 25,000 iu
Vitamin D3- 10,000iu for 7 days then 5000ius until spring (can get the D3 with K)
Probiotics 20-50 billion live unit
Great Homeopathic remedies take as soon as symptoms start can make all the difference:
Boiron, Oscillococcinum, Flu-Like Symptoms (comes in children's strength also)
A few more tips to help you survive it all until next spring ....
Sleep: Sounds simple right but its amazingly complex when you realize all the things your body does every night...hormones are released...tissue growth and repair..
Home: Optimize your environment, including mold exposure, toxic chemicals and “noxious energies” electronics including phones, computers, tv's (especially in your sleeping space).
Exercise: This is very important to stimulate overalll health and wellness. So move your body every day even if its just a walk around the block. Exercise improves immune function lymph flow and natural detoxification.
Diet: We all are unique finding the best diet for you, free of food allergies and of course limiting processed, GMO, and high sugar foods is a step in the right direction. Learning optimal ways to prepare you food to maximize the nutrition can be helpful too.
Hydration: Optimal water intake, and its quality is a very important part of the lifestyles changes.
Mind-Body: Stress management, mindfulness/meditation, prayer, Traditional Chinese Medicine practices of Ti Chi and Qi Gong are some of the positive therapies that are very helpful
Just because it's winter it doesn't mean you can let your guard down when it comes to checking yourself for ticks after outside activities. Last year we had a young lady come in January with a tick attached last while I was in DC so you know here on the shore we have more wild life and outdoor activities so be diligent if your an athlete..a spectator or a hunter.

Wayne Bonlie M.D.
Dr. Bonlie trained as a family doctor. He has taken that specialty and focused it in Integrative Medicine. Dr. Bonlie is passionate about blending the best care available from multiple sources. He works to see the whole person to find the underlying imbalances that generate the symptoms / disease that surface . There have been a lot of steps along the way leading Wayne to his Integrative Medicine practice. He was raised in British Columbia with parents who were extremely health conscious. From a young age Wayne was extremely interested in science and how things worked. He went to college in Washington State and finished a graduate degree in Physiology and his medical degree at Loma Linda University in California. He had his first major shift after reading “Love, Medicine and Miracles” by Bernie Segal at the end of his first year of med school. This book lead Wayne to exploration in meditation, mind-body connection and a new way of viewing the world.
After residency,where he was chief resident, he ran a solo family practice clinic for nine years in Hoquiam, a small town at the base of the Olympic Peninsula. During that time he was medical director of the local hospice program and served a year as Medical Chief of Staff for a 99 bed hospital serving the needs of the county. During the difficult birth experience of their first daughter, Wayne and Cherry-Lee were introduced to Healing Touch therapy by an RN at the hospital’s special care nursery. This opened Wayne to energy medicine and led to further classes, workshops and experiences.
In 2004 Wayne accepted a position as Director of Research for a company developing a magnetic therapy device. This brought him and his family to the East Coast and allowed him to start seeing clients with an alternative and holistic focus – now his full time work. Attending many classes and seminars on Integrative Medicine he continues to learn daily about new therapies and health research. He finds great satisfaction in helping people find personal solutions to their health puzzles.
His interest is in helping patients find natural and alternative health practices that will complement and enhance their health and well-being, while still utilizing the best aspects of conventional medicine where appropriate.
Each person is unique, and conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and bioidentical hormone replacement requires unique care. Dr. Bonlie will work with you to tailor a regimen that will work for you and your personal health. He will take the time to really listen to you and allow you to really have a conversation about your health and time to have your questions answered.

Identifying your specific problem in a thorough and scientific manner. Through the collaboration of doctors, research scientists, therapists and other specialists.
Every year an increasing number of children and adults are diagnosed with new illnesses. These include allergies, ADD/ADHD, behavior disorders, asthma, stomach problems, geriatric concerns, autoimmune problems, PDD, PMS, stress, hormonal imbalances, depression, Insect borne illnesses and more.
Our society is changing rapidly and medical science is constantly challenged to reevaluate and keep up and integrate new practices. The medical information gained by leading scientists has provided the undeniable evidence that imbalances of important vitamins, minerals, amino acids, certain chemicals, and infections play a direct role in our health.
There is little doubt that diet, genetics, and environmental factors contribute to the growing numbers of chronically sick children and adults.
At Midatlantic we are dedicated to providing Community Education, Nutritional Counseling, Biomedical Testing, and other complementary health care services by integrating all necessary conventional, traditional, alternative and complementary medical treatments, we restore the essential balance and help you reestablish your health and vitality.
