With flu season upon us, it’s sometimes hard to keep our bodies healthy. To maintain a strong immune system, it’s important to be proactive and to incorporate good practices in your daily routine. Before getting a flu shot consider this: Flu shots are a problem because they contain neurotoxins and other poisons which are then injected into the body. Some may even pose a problem even if they are ingested orally. Since, the vaccine is made early in the year it is not very reliable and often times cannot protect from a mutated virus. And if you decide to receive the flu shot, you may think that is all you need to be protected from the virus, which is not true.
Here are some important tips on staying healthy and happy naturally during flu season:
- Vitamin D is important to many vital functions in your body. It helps maintain strong bones and wards off diseases. Exercise and losing weight can increase your Vitamin D levels without taking a pill. Sunlight, fish, and milk can also be great sources of Vitamin D, as well. It is important to get the necessary vitamins and nutrients to make sure your immune system stays strong.
- Washing your hands is a simple way to prevent disease. Just by taking a few minutes to wash your hands with soap and water you can reduce the number of germs on them. If soap and water are not available, you can use alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
- Eating plant-based foods is an easy way to keep you in tip-top shape! Never underestimate the power of fruits and vegetables. Joining the kale trend is not just a fad, the vegetable is a superfood that contains Vitamins K, A, C, B1, B2, B3, B6 and other nutrients, like calcium, potassium, fiber, iron and more! Substituting kale or spinach for iceberg lettuce is an easy and beneficial switch to your diet that adds a significantly more amount of vitamins and nutrients to ward of disease. Simply by adding a salad to your meal or fruit for dessert your overall physical and mental health can improve!
