Do You Have Time for a Cold or the Flu?

In today’s fast-paced world, it seems we’re all under constant pressure just to keep up, and that’s been harder these past few years than ever before.  Growing financial hardships, environmental deterioration and new “super viruses” lurk behind every corner. Each of us is bombarded daily by anxiety, toxins, dangerous pathogens and overwhelming personal and professional demands. It’s no wonder immune support has become so important for folks of all ages.

These ever-present pressures of our lifestyles often catch up to us, affecting our immune system and overall sense of wellness. Who has time to get sick, let alone deal with a more serious virus? Who can handle any kind of medical set back?

People are looking for ways to maintain their health. Many have no healthcare and are turning to natural products that are less expensive and have far fewer side effects than prescriptions.

The Immune System is the body’s defense mechanism to handle invaders. It is an amazing work of nature. It does a very good job of fighting off illnesses and infections when it is in good condition. It is absolutely vital that you have a good strong immune system to fight off diseases, infections and all manner of illness. Naturally boosting your immune system will build it into your best defense mechanism throughout the cold and flu season and all year long.

Keep your body MOVING, which means to be sure you get regular exercise. This keeps the blood circulating oxygen and nutrients into the cells and helps the lymph system circulate and flush out harmful waste. Your lymph system is your first line of defense when an invading microbe (virus, bacteria) is detected in the body. Keeping the lymph system in good working order will help keep your immune system strong.

  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water each day. You should drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of filtered water a day to drain the ‘waste’ fluids from your bodies cells.
  • Get plenty of sleep, at least 8 hours, 9 is better. Your body is in repair mode when you’re sleeping. Give it the rest it needs.
  • Reduce stress as much as possible. Stress of most kinds weakens the body and lowers immunity.

Here’s What You Can Do To Improve Immunity

Immune boosters are a great tool for supporting & stimulating your immune system. It needs to be ready when someone sitting across from you starts sneezing and launching nasty virus germs your way.
