Winter is coming and you have plenty to do. To avoid downtime with the sniffles and body aches that can interfere with your busy work and home schedule, not to mention all the festivities you want to be part of, add some herbs and supplements to your daily intake to strengthen your immunity and follow my tips so there is no time lost in recovery.
During the holidays you tend to travel, socialize, eat, and just run around and do more. My top 3 tips are to wash your hands regularly, stay away from sugar and to get enough rest.
We are in contact with more people at parties and travel at this time of year, so wash your hands after handshakes and touching door handles.
Instead of eating more sugar, which you will be surrounded with, make a conscious choice to eat less.
Since you will have more on your schedule with shopping and social events, make a big effort to get enough rest and relaxation. Just try not to overdo it.
To help you get through the season, strengthen your immune system with my favorite immune herb-- Echinacea. Be sure to take it in a pure and potent form that has high alkylamide content and is extracted from the root properly. I recommend taking Echinacea daily all year round. At BVital we use an Echinacea that will make your tongue tingle due to the high quality and potency of the tabs.
Vitamin D has many health improving benefits and one of them is to strengthen your immunity. Blood tests to check your levels can be arranged in my office. This will help determine your best dosage.
Vitamin C can be taken to bowel tolerance, so back off if you start getting loose stools, and zinc can be taken 25 to 50 mg. daily.
BVital flu immune formula is a good preventive, but if you happen to succumb to a cold or flu, taking it early on will lessen the severity of your symptoms and help you to recover faster.
