One of the best ways to make sure you don't catch the flu is to keep your immune system strong

Every year people start panicking about the flu. Of course the media doesn't help, it seems that every year the flu strain becomes stronger and stronger, new strains develop.  And this year is the coronavirus on top of the flu virus.

Yes, there is a reason for concern, it can be serious especially for people with already compromised immune system.

It's easier and cheaper to maintain your health then to heal a condition. Your immune system is designed to protect you from outside and inside threats. Yet, sometimes a bacteria, a virus may overpower your immune system, the outcome would be a cold, flu, etc.

I know, sometimes it seems so much easier just to reach  for a medication to stop the flu symptoms. Or you can be proactive in keeping your immune system strong by taking daily action. 

Here are few simple steps you can take in strengthening your immune system, and keep yourself and your family healthy year around.

  • Stay hydrated and get enough sleep: this are 2 excellent first steps 
  • Consume immune strengthening foods: fatty fish, ginger, garlic, turmeric, citrus fruits, dark leafy greens, yogurt, green tea. Here are 12 immune boosting recipes.
  • Take immune boosting supplements: Fish oil, Vit D, Probiotics, Herbal compounds, etc. Below are some of my suggestions that I personally use, some on daily basis and some when needed. 
  • Keep your home germ free:  you don't always have control of things such us the air quality. You can certainly do something about your home air quality. One way is to get an expensive  air purifier, or you can use colloidal silver in the cool mist vaporizer, humidifier. Study article that states how ionic silver is helpful against coronavirus.  If you have asthma then you are not a stranger to nebulizer. Instead of the asthma medicine you put a little 10ppm colloidal silver and inhale for about 5 min.
