There are so many pills and potions available that promise the world when it comes to immune challenges, yet the common cold is still very common and very hard to eradicate. Your immune system is the linchpin to everything and should be the key focus each and every day. With all the medications sold to treat the viruses you would think there would not be any!
Steer clear of medications that suggest you can continue to work and act with a military presence and continue on with your life. This suggestion borders on absolute stupidity as people drag themselves to work and spread their germs around offices that are often air-conditioned assisting the critters to invade many people all in one hit.
This is bad, mad and irrational thinking.
Of course you should be commended for wanting to continue to put in and not leave it up to your mates to hold the fort, however once viruses take hold they spread like wild fire.
If you support your immune system you may be able to swerve away from the invaders and miss them all together. The following pointers may be of assistance to help your immune system to go into attack mode and protect you.
Nutrition plays a huge role in supporting the immune system and not only is it important to consider what to eat it is equally important to consider what NOT to eat. Food to activate and defend you or food that allows the critters to attack and invade you, leaving a shattered mess in their wake is to be considered.
The formula that has worked for me in clinic for near to 40 years
- Hydrate the body by sipping water across the day
- Reduce processed sugars and wheat products
- Include citrus such as oranges, lemons, grapefruit
- Include apples, carrots and kiwi fruit as they are powerhouses to support the immune system
- Include onion, chilli, ginger and leafy green vegetables as they are particularly fantastic.
Of course there are so many fruits and vegetables that are fantastic to list them all would not be possible in this blog yet you should get the general idea.
Carry wetones that have been soaked in pure eucalyptus oil and breathe the aroma of the eucalyptus oil, wipe hands with the wet ones and wipe over all areas that have been touched by humans particularly the germy ones that are spreading their germs around. If anyone coughs in your presence then get a wet one, breathe in the eucalyptus oil, then blow your nose and then discard used wetone.
When out and about, in particular where there are large numbers of people, then carry your soaked wetones in a zip lock bag (one of the world’s best inventions) and use them to breathe the eucalyptus and then keep hands clean and wipe all areas where you may touch what other people have touched.
Use hot soapy water to keep your hands clean. This is very important and simple, in fact so simple it is constantly overlooked.
DO NOT LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THEM
So there you have it, short and straight to the point messages to help your immune system stay in pristine condition. You may not be able to avoid viruses yet by following the above suggestions you should be able to get into recovery mode quickly.
