Natural Flu Prevention
You probably know someone who has had the flu this season. It’s been a very early flu season and a more severe one than we normally experience. With estimates of the vaccine only being 10 to 30% effective, support your immune system.
4 WAYS TO SUPPORT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
1. Reduce Sugar
Eating food high in sugar can depress the immune system for several hours. This opens the door for the flu virus.
2. Stress Less
Stress suppresses the immune system. Manage your stress with techniques such as deep breathing, exercise, yoga, meditation, massage, and acupuncture.
3. Sleep More
Inadequate sleep lowers the body’s defenses needed for fighting the flu. Get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.
4. See a naturopathic doctor
