Tis the season for snotty noses and crumpled up Kleenex! Not only is it time to bust out your favourite comfy sweater (Halleluiah), but it is also time for sore throats and coughs (Yuck). There are easy ways to ensure that you are protecting your family from colds and flu. You can say goodbye to your cold and flu symptoms in as little as 3 days with lots of TLC and the proper care. There are many preventative steps that you can take to fight every flu season with boosted confidence.
Fight Flu Season
It’s important to know the difference between a cold and the flu. Here is a hand chart to help understand the difference.
Get moving every single day! Take a walk or spend at least half an hour at the gym to lower stress and boost your immune system.
It can be difficult to keep up and give your body all the recommended nutrients it requires. Taking a multivitamin can help to support your immune system and coincide well with your busy schedule. It is also very important that you consume a balanced diet rich in vegetables and fruits.
Get Some Rest
If you are sick, the best thing you can do is get some rest. Binge watch your favourite series, grab some tissue and snuggle in a comfortable spot. You can also use Multi-symptom Cold & Fever to help you out. This natural health product is an all-in-one pain reliever, anti-nauseant, and fever reducer. The Willow Bark and Ginger extract in Gravol Multi-symptom Cold & Fever make this formula super effective as they are traditional herbal medicines that have been used for centuries.
Staying hydrated helps to replace fluids that can be lost from respiratory infection or fever. Drinking lots of water will aid in loosening congestions, soothing a sore throat and flushing out the bacteria in your system.
Stop Stress in Their Tracks
Get lots of rest and relax to keep your immune system strong. Stress can have a negative effect on your immune system causing it to become weakened. This can lead to touches of flu and colds.
Know When to See a Doctor
If your symptoms worsen, you don’t start feeling better or you are part of a high-risk group to develop flu symptoms, it is important that you consult a Doctor. The symptoms of bacterial infections and different viruses can be confusing as they can be very similar. It is important to know when to seek the knowledge of a Doctor.
Antibiotics are great at fighting the bad bacteria that make you sick, but for some women, they can also affect good bacteria (also known as Vaginal Flora) making them susceptible to Bacterial Vaginosis (BV), which causes discomfort, itching, and discharge. If you are prone to BV when taking a prescription medication, try RepHresh Pro-B Probiotic. Just 1 oral capsule daily while using oral antibiotics can help to treat BV and maintain vaginal flora in a normal range.
