Natural Flu Fighters

With more people becoming increasingly concerned about the Flu, many are looking for ways to protect their health. Below are some helpful, general (and easy!) tips to overcoming the flu and other viruses.

Plain ol’ Vitamin C – Even though most people know the benefits of Vitamin C, many don’t take it to boost their immune systems when they are concerned about illness—they take it AFTER they get sick. To choose the right Vitamin C for you, talk to your health care provider about which dosage you should take. Drinks like “C Monster” make it easy to get some Vitamin C and stay hydrated at the same time. Which brings us to the next point…

Stay Hydrated and Eat Whole Foods – Again, this seems like common sense, but often the most logical and clear cut health strategies are the ones that are most missed. To help keep your body healthy make sure to drink lots of fluids throughout the day (remember that soda and coffee do not count!) and eat whole foods – including choices that boost health and immunity.  Look for organic choices like garlic (natural immune boost) squash (helps clear toxics), asparagus (cleans the blood) and Elderberries (antiviral properties and flu-fighting flavonoids).

Hyland’s Products— Since 1903, Hyland’s has built a long a solid reputation for producing effective products. They are FDA regulated and the largest domestic manufacturer of homeopathic medicines in North America. Hyland’s Complete Flu Care and new Complete Flu Care for kids feature two-phase action help to minimize flu symptoms at first onset and help relieve nasty symptoms after the flu has set in. We especially like their Cold ‘n Cough 4 kids, which helps to get rid of common cold symptoms, including sneezing, sore throat, and congestion without side effects. www.hylands.com.
