Once you’ve got it, you’ve got it. It has to work its way through your system. So the best thing to do is to avoid it all together.
How do you avoid getting the flu? You choose to eat the foods and take the supplements that fight the viruses A, B, & C that cause the flu and take other precautions as well. The flu vaccine is the last thing you should consider as your main defense.
The flu is highly contagious. It is spread when you either breathe in the air (spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes) or when you touch an infected person’s (by kissing, touching, sharing objects such as spoons and forks). You can also pick up, or spread, the flu virus with your hands by touching smooth surfaces such as doorknobs, handles, television remotes, computer keyboards, and telephones and then touch your hands to your nose, eyes, or mouth.
The first thing you can do to avoid the flu is to stay away from people who are coughing or sneezing and do not share any utensils, etc. with them. Also, be very diligent, even obsessive, about washing your hands several times a day and do not put your hands on your nose, eyes or mouth, especially if you have not washed them in awhile. If you are out and about, carry hand sanitizer with you at all times and keep it in your car.
The other thing you can do is build a strong foundation of “flu-fighters” by eating foods that contain the nutrients that your body needs to feed those little “flu-fighters”.
Make a point of implementing at least one of these everyday into your menu…shouldn’t be hard as they are all yummy!
In addition to eating properly, I recommend you take the following supplements that specifically help your body fight the flu:
3. Vitamin D
4. Vitamin C
Ideally, the above should be taken together in a top quality multi-vitamin/mineral. CLICK HERE to review my recommendation for the optimal mulit-vitamin/mineral.
