Welcome to flu season! Why do we fail to prepare for it, even though we know it's a season that will be here sooner rather than later.
Here's a quick question for you:
Which of these people are NOT likely to get the flu?
- A person whose body is warm and moist?
- A person who is cold and dry?
Did you answer the first one, a person who is warm and moist? BINGO if you did.
Why? You may ask; Let's look at the trees to get a better perspective. What do they look like in fall and winter? Yes, they do look pretty just before "dying" with those bright coloured leaves. They are basically dry and cold, which is a great breading ground for bacterial decomposing like any dead body.
Now let's look at these trees in spring. Aha! The trees which are absorbing all the water and nutrients they can, they are warm and moist. What happens if we do not have enough April showers? Not enough May flowers.
I think you get the idea.
Bring this principal to your body. If in cold weather, you don't want to switch your body to decomposing mode, which attracts the bad bacteria and viruses which attack us like they would the cold, dry leaves of the trees. What should we be doing instead?
Did you say "stay warm and hydrated"? Simple isn't it. You would imagine, but statistics tell us how many people actually fail to eat warming and hydrating foods and of course stay warm.
You may argue that you wear warm coats but still get the flu as so many do. While yes, that is true, do you actually know anyone who doesn't ever get the flu? It's pretty rare.
You may also think that you wold never get the flu if you weren't sitting next to someone who has the flu and that only a flu shot can save you. I won't go into the topic of medically free flu shots and the harm they cause.The stats are easy enough to find, just do a little reading.
What I will tell you is that there is a way to never get the flu. I can say this from first hand experience. Here are a few tips to keep your body strong:
- Drink water throughout the day, preferably warm or you can have green tea or even nettle tea.
- You could also boil your water every morning with a piece of fresh ginger and a cinnamon stick. Drink it with a little fresh squeezed lemon juice.
- Eat more soups, squash soups and root vegetables rather than cold foods.
- If you do ok with oranges, eat one every day or have a kiwi, these are both high in naturally occurring vitamin C.
- Make sure you are getting adequate vitamin D from a good quality source. Speak with your health care provider to test how you are doing in that area.
Let me tell you, if you are a woman you could be in a hormonal storm and things have become stressful, this means your immune system needs a boost.
I help women explore their beliefs to mastermind a plan that gives them the strength to handle life situations. If you are going through the winter blues and sneezes that needs a natural flu shot, and after trying those 5 remedies above you still feel you are in that dry and decomposing mode please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
