Virus cold and fluThe weather is changing quickly.  Winter is right around the corner and with that comes the virus, cold and flu season.  The key to avoiding illness is to build and maintain a strong immune system,  NOW.  I believe it is absolutely possible to stay well, even with all of these “bugs” around us!

How can we strengthen our immunity to battle these “bugs?”

Being proactive can definitely affect how often you become ill and the duration of that illness.  If you are blind-sighted and do come down with a virus, it is crucial that you have a safe and healthy battle plan in place!

Do you know?

Sugar – one teaspoon of sugar pulls your immune system down for several hours and decreases your energy levels.

Fever – is your body’s natural, built in mechanism to fight a virus.  Think twice before you take a fever reducer when you have a temperature, unless it is dangerously high.  Isn’t it interesting that when you take your child to the doctor, they recommend Tylenol and popsicles that are loaded with sugar, artificial colors and ingredients?

Flu Shot –  actually suppresses your immune system!  Why are we bombarded at the doctor’s office, at pharmacies and with billboard ads all promoting the flu shot?  Have you asked yourself what is in a flu shot (or any vaccine)?  Do you know what the potential harmful side effects are?  Learn the risks and Educate Before You Vaccinate!  My family and I have chosen to NOT vaccinate.

Do you have a battle plan, an arsenal of products to help you “safely” overcome the cold and flu season?

My family’s goal is to stay well, avoid costly and time consuming doctor visits, antibiotics and “unhealthy” over the counter medications.   Our battle plan includes an arsenal of quality natural health products, foods and services that help us prevent and battle these viruses and regain our health quickly and safely:

     –Vitamin D3 – As daylight hours decrease so do our vitamin D levels.  We take Vitamin D3 throughout the year and increase the
dosage during the winter months to 5,000 I.U.s.  If we are fighting illness, we increase to 20,000 I.U.s or more.  Please read  How to Safely Prevent Viruses, Colds and Flu’s for more information.

     –Immune by Trivaren International  – We take this  supplement throughout the year and increase the dosage during allergy seasons and when exposed to a virus.  

     –Vitamin C*

    –Colloidal Silver* – This particular product can be used daily as an immune support supplement.  However,  we only use it when we are fighting/overcoming an illness.

    –Boiron, Oscillococcinum*– Best when taken at the first sign of flu-like symptoms such as run-down feeling, headache, body aches, chills and fever.

    –Apple Cider Vinegar– Many medical studies show the health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar. Mix 1 tablespoon with pure, alkaline mineral water.  You may also add local unfiltered honey.  Please note that heat destroys the valuable enzymes in honey.
