Tips for Avoiding the Flu

We have been speaking about avoiding swine flu.

Other eating habits that affect immunity are excessive consumption of dairy products, excessive alcohol intake and ingesting fats such as red meat.

In addition, excessive sugar consumption can result in a 50 percent drop in immunity for 1-to-5 hours after ingestion. The above burdens the body’s detoxification system limiting proper immune response. For heavens sake, if you are going to take public transportation skip the cheesecake after dinner!

Russian Scientists have proven nothing lives in the presence of garlic juice… so eat lots of garlic if it doesn’t bother you.

When it comes to cold and flu, essential oils such as oregano, cinnamon, frankincense, lemon, eucalyptus and peppermint are prized by healers and naturopaths. In fact, plant essences derived from leaves, herbs and seeds were the very first medicines our ancestors used. Today, most look to pharmaceutical drugs instead of the tried-and-true natural remedies that work more slowly, but usually more effectively than drugs and antibiotics – and usually with no ugly side effects. We can say the same for flu vaccines…they can be dangerous, too.

However, what you focus on expands so think “good health” and take some sensible precautions, get a good night’s sleep, turn off the TV and know everything’s going to be alright. We can’t let fear be a self-fulfilling prophecy. RIGHT?

Here’s to your health!
