Colds & Flu

Sit in any airport and watch how many people pass through the terminal in a day and you get an appreciation of how quickly an infectious disease can travel around the world.

Your airport may be busy, but there are thousands of airports just like it all over the world. Never has there been such a chance of an infection spreading so rapidly to every reach of the world.

The problem isn’t with what you get on your hands. The problem is when you move your hands to your face.

Estimates are that most people touch their face somewhere between 5 and 20 times every hour.

That means whatever is on that doorknob, sink, desk (or the person’s hand you just shook) will make it to your nose, mouth, or eye.

Once there, it is a short trip and you have the flu.

And, yes, when you cough and sneeze, make sure you cover your nose and mouth and throw away tissues after you use them.

That’s prevention, let’s talk treatment.

Most people get 2-3 colds or flus a year. However, by boosting your immune system, you may only have a day or two of symptoms, but rarely will you get a full-blown sickness – which is a sign of a strong immune system.

You can have a strong immune system by following these steps:

  • Eat Well

    Include lots of garlic and onions to your diet during flu season. Onions and garlic have long been used for their healing properties and they are a tasty addition to any meal (especially soups). There are many herbs and vitamins that can help your immune system; make sure you get enough of them.

  • Vitamin D

    Take 3,000-5,000 IUs of vitamin D every day.

  • Berberine, Turmeric, and Oregano Oil

    These herbs help to give your immune system the boost it needs to help kick the flu out the door.

  • Probiotic/Polyphenols

    Research has shown how probiotics boost immunity, by ensuring healthy bacteria in the gut.

  • Immune Boosting Nucleotide

    An all-natural supplement that immediately boosts the body’s immune system to counter bacteria and viruses.
