This week we’re going to talk about flu season. As we go into the holidays, it gets colder; people wrap themselves up, stay inside and don’t get enough sun. Typically people have a tendency to get the flu and upper respiratory infections during this time.
I’d like to go over ways to prevent the flu; since we know that getting the flu shot is not 100% effective, we will go over some ways that will build up our immune response:
One of the best ways to do so is to make sure your nerve system can properly communicate with the immune system. You do that by making sure your spine is free of spinal subluxations.
Studies show that regular spinal checkups help improve the immune response.
Another thing you can do is take vitamin D, because we’re not out in the sun as much, we’re not getting the sunshine vitamin. The studies show that taking vitamin D helps improve the immune response. You want to take 2,000 to 5,000 IU a day.
Also, you want to avoid sugar, excessive sugar, which is tough to do during the holidays.
You want to get plenty of rest and make sure you’re washing your hands. You also want to work on breathing exercises to reduce the stress and also regular exercise.
All of that is very important to boost your internal environment so that you can be passed by the flu where other people would drop like flies.
Make sure you spread the word to your loved ones. Many people blindly go get the flu shot, and that, by no means, is going to completely protect you against the flu.
