10.  Always wash hands after being in public. The main vector of transmission is by rubbing your eyes, nose, and mouth.

9.  Make sure you are getting adequate sleep each night.  7-8 hours is recommended.

8.  Be sure to stay well hydrated.  Aim for 1/2 your body weight in ounces every day.

7.  Gargle with salt water for sore throats.  This will kill gram negative bacteria that are usually the cause.  Gargle for at least 30 seconds + and then don’t rinse afterwards.

6.  Floss your teeth and then gargle with Listerine for at least 30 seconds to 1 minute.

5.  Supplement with Echinacea which helps to stimulate immune function.

4.  Supplement with Vitamin C.  1000mg  3x/day.

3.  Sinus infections are usually fungal infections;  use a product like Sinatrol which is specific for fungal infection.

2. Perform weight bearing exercise.  Lift weights or body weight exercises will naturally increase white blood cell production which are the cells that fight off foreign pathogens.

1.Get a chiropractic adjustment.  The nerve system controls the immune system.  This bolsters the functionality of your natural immunity.  Especially cervical (neck) adjustments stimulate the pathways into the neck, throat, sinuses, and head.

 

Prevention is your best approach this cold and flu season.  This years flu vaccine is not a good match according to many medical doctors.  Take time to read this list and put into action as many of the above suggestions as possible. Remember, antibiotics do NOT work on viral infections.

 

Yours in health,
