Flu Season

The flu season of 2018 is upon us.

It’s actually been in full force for a while.

This year’s flu season seems to be worse than years past. Why would that be? Did too many people skip out on their flu shots?

The biggest misconception around the flu is that if you somehow come into contact with the virus you will get sick.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The reason being, you have an immune system which serves as your army to fight off any virus or bacteria that tries to enter.

The reason people get sick is because the immune system gets weakened. This can happen in a variety of ways: alcohol, negative thinking/stress, lack of exercise, eating junk food, etc.

Without a strong immune system, you have no army to protect the body from invaders. This is when people catch the flu.

The flu virus itself is not strong enough to penetrate the walls of a healthy and strong immune system. However, when that immune system is taxed, the flu virus can stroll right in.

So, some natural tips to keep yourself out of bed and away from the flu symptoms:
-eat lots of green vegetables and foods from the earth
-stay away from processed foods and sugar
-limit alcohol intake
-get daily exercise
-make sure you’re getting 7-8 hours of continuous sleep each night
-get any nervous system interference removed by a chiropractor
-take Vitamin D
-take a good quality probiotic

Here’s the bottom line: you are not a victim. The flu virus isn’t a boogeyman that will hurt you if you’re to come into contact with it.

If you take care of yourself and make sure you’re eating well, thinking well, moving well, and getting proper sleep, then the flu has very little chance of affecting you.

Stay healthy friends.
