Prepare to ward off colds and flu naturally

It’s cold and flu season again—are you at risk?

It depends. If you come in contact with people often, particularly lots of different people, the answer is “yes.” If your immune system isn’t fully developed or has been weakened or compromised, the answer is also “yes.”

People at highest risk for colds and flu include:

  • Children
  • Teachers
  • Parents of young children
  • Elderly or those recovering from illnesses
  • Anyone who comes into contact with large numbers of people, especially health-care providers and store owners/workers

Colds and flu are best prevented rather than managed—it takes less than a minute to take preventative measures versus weeks spent recovering from illness.

Good prevention focuses on building the strongest immune system possible and protecting yourself from germs. Strategies that are known to bolster your immune system include:

  1. Reducing unnecessary stress
  2. Eating 5 to 9 servings of green vegetables daily
  3. Eating 4 to 6 servings of citrus fruit daily for the Vitamin C
  4. Drinking 8 eight-ounce glasses of water daily
  5. Eating a balanced diet that includes low-fat protein, complex carbs, and monounsaturated fats.
  6. Reducing alcohol consumption if you drink more than moderately

If it is unrealistic for you to eat 7 helpings a day of green vegetables, consider using EnergyFirst Greenergy to get the equivalent of 7 servings of green vegetables in one convenient scoop.

As for the fruit, you can supplement with EnergyFirst VitaEnergy Mega Plus ACE, which includes optimal dosages of Vitamin C, along with other vital micronutrients like Vitamins A and E, the B vitamins, and a wealth of minerals. EnergyFirst’s Ester C product is the best way to get additional Vitamin C supplementation.

To cut down on the risk of unhealthy germs that could carry a cold or the flu straight into your body, wash your hands with soap and running water frequently, most especially after using the bathroom, shaking hands, eating, and touching doorknobs and other “high-touch” items that others have used frequently.

Hand sanitizers and anti-bacterial soaps are all the rage, but a recent study shows that they make no significant difference over plain old soap and water.

Additionally, good prevention now includes exercise to boost your immune system function. A new study reported in the November issue of the American Journal of Medicine suggests that regular, moderate exercise can reduce the risk of colds in postmenopausal women.

This study represents the first randomized clinical trial investigating the relationship between physical activity and the common cold. Although it was limited to postmenopausal women, future studies will no doubt be conducted on other demographic groups.
