When the flu season hits your house be prepared to have it for several days. Remember it is contagious and if your immune system is not strong you may catch it. Weak immune systems are not strong enough to… fight off infectious viruses and bacteria.
Here are some great tips to support your body while you have the flu for a quicker recovery. It is important that you:
- Drink plenty of water
- Get enough sleep
- Eat the right foods
- Treat the symptoms
- Eat chicken soup
- Filter the air/open windows when you can
- Stay home from work or school
- Avoid stress
- Avoid all refined sugar
- Take vitamins/supplements
An important thing to remember is that all flu strains are not covered in a Flu Vaccine. For example, 60% of the 2007-2008 winter flu was not covered by the vaccine that was administered. Take precaution to keep your body healthy.
Flu viruses were not given to you. You caught it. Give yourself permission to get well and take care of yourself. These tips will help you when you suddenly realize you “got the flu”.
