How To Fight The Flu Naturally

9 Tips to Prevent Colds and Flu

Winter is upon us, and along with cooler temperatures, shorter days and wonderful cool, sunny weather comes increased susceptibility to colds and flu.

The good news is you don’t need a flu shot to prevent the flu.   It is so important to visit your chiropractor regularly to keep your nervous system and natural immune system strong and healthy. As we have talked about many times, the Central Nervous System controls every other system in the body. By getting adjustments, aligning the spine and removing stress from the nervous system, the body is able to naturally function better and the immune system gets a boost.  This is equally important and maybe even more important for our growing children. In addition to Chiropractic care, try these natural health practices to stay healthy this season.

  1. Get 8 hours of Sleep.   Studies have concluded that lack of sleep can double your chances of getting a bacterial or viral infection.

  2. Breathe Clean Air.  Keep the air around you as clean and fresh as possible.   Use an air purifier in your home or office that has an ionizer and HEPA filter to clean the air.

  3. Wash your Hands Often.   The amount of infected bacterial and virus matter in the air and on surfaces is increased during flu season.  Wash your hands every hour with soap and water.

  4. Keep Your Hands Away from Your Face.  Infected “droplets” of virus are harmless on your hands.  But if you put your fingers into your nose, eyes, or mouth, the bacteria and virus can easily transfer and enter your upper respiratory tract.  

  5. Avoid Sick People.  Infection passes from one to another.   Avoid sick people and avoid the flu.

  6. Get More Sun, Fresh Air and Movement.  Your immune system depends on physical activity to pump white blood cells around your system.   Make sure you get fresh air and move, sweat, bend and stretch your body.  

  7. Avoid Negativity.   Avoid negative, angry and dysfunctional people.   Emotionally and spiritually unwell people impact your immune system.  Likewise, negative input from television news can really bring you down. Positive thinking really does go a long way.

  8. Improve Your Immune system Naturally.    Eat well -- eating fresh organic vegetables and fruits, minimize sugar and processed foods.  Move well -- get moderate exercise daily. Think well -- your mind-body connection is very powerful.                          

  9. BEMER vascular therapy sessions enhances the immune system Improved circulation, oxygen and nutrient delivery and removes toxins through the capillary system.
