WHAT TO DO FOR THE FLU
As the darker, colder days of winter are upon us; our immune systems can be weakened. With weakened immune systems we are vulnerable to many different viruses and bacterias that can make us sick. Here are some things you can do prevent the flu or to make it easier if you get the flu.
Fection: is the first line of defense against the flu. Many school teachers take one Fection capsule a day and rarely get sick. If you happen to get the flu fection can make it so you will not get it so bad and will overcome it much faster.
Vitamin D: with the shorter days of winter our bodies don't get as much sunshine and thus our vitamin D is low in our bodies. A good vitamin D will go a long way in keeping you healthy. If you do get the flu a mega dose of vitamin D ( 1,000 iu per pound of body weight two days in a row) will give your body the ability to get over the flu quickly.
Water: as it begins to get colder our bodies uses up the water in the body to maintain its temperature. Remember to drink one quart of alkalinized water for every forty pounds of body weight. If you are dehydrated your immune system will not be strong enough to combat anything that is attacking it.
Coconut oil: is an amazing anti-fungal, anti-bacterial food. People who get 3 tablespoons of coconut oil a day are less likely to come down with the latest "bug" going around.
Slippery Elm Drink: (see below) this is a helpful to drink when you can't keep any food down, or your lungs hurt from the flu. Some people say it tastes like egg nog.
Hopefully these few tips will help you be healthier and happier this holiday season.
SPOTLIGHT ON: FECTION
FECTION is very helpful in the strengthening of their immune system, without an adverse effect upon the digestive tract, or by increasing yeast infections.
Here are the ingredients of Fection and what they are used for:
Golden Seal Root and Oregon Grape Root are pro-biotics that influence the glandular and lymphatic systems, and the skin. They also stimulate saliva and bile secretions. Echinacea Root and Astraglias are fungicides and are pro-biotic. They cleanse the lymphatic system and purify the blood. Burdock Root cleanses the lymphatic system and helps build strong tissue. Sage helps fight off infection by strengthening the immune system, cleansing the blood and helping the kidneys and bladder deal with extra toxins. Ginger Root helps speed up the healing process.
This is a soothing drink for stomach or lung problems especially when food can not be held down.
