No Flu shot - Yes NAC! N-acetylcysteine is a variant of the amino acid L-cysteine and is widely used as the antidote for acetaminophen overdose. Other applications for NAC supported by scientific evidence include prevention of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbation, attenuation of illness from the influenza virus when started before infection, treatment of pulmonary fibrosis, and treatment of infertility in patients with clomiphene-resistant polycystic ovary syndrome.

Polycystic Kidney Disease or PKD is one of the most common life threatening genetic diseases. PKD causes fluid filled cysts form in the kidneys and destroy them resulting in kidney failure. A healthy kidney is about the size of your fist. PKD kidneys can grow larger than a football and weigh 10 to 20 lbs each! There are approximately 12.5 million people worldwide that have PKD. It affects more people than Muscular Dystrophy, Cycle Cell Anemia, Cystic Fibrosis, & Downs Syndrome combined!
