‘Tis the season for holiday hustle, bustle, stress, and shopping. However, it is also the season for sniffles, sneezes, coughs, and fevers. It’s true – cold and flu season is well upon us, and we are already seeing a variety of viruses spread throughout our area.
How do you keep your family safe and healthy during this germy season? If you are relying on a vaccine and a prayer, you are not giving your body what it needs to make it through cold and flu season successfully. Fortunately, the team at Select Health Chiropractic knows just the tips for you to beat cold and flu season naturally. Say goodbye to the flu and make this year your family’s year of health!
Eat and drink right
Avoiding cold and flu starts in the kitchen. You are, after all, what you eat; be sure you are eating for health. Focus on eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, aiming to get a variety of colors on your plates during meal times. Avoid processed foods and drink lots of water. Good hydration is key for keeping your body running in top form, so don’t skimp on your water intake this winter.
Even the best menus can fall short on vital nutrients and crucial vitamins that your body’s immune system needs. Give us a call to talk supplements and nutrition; we have years of experience pairing up clients with just what their body needs to run optimally.
Get adjusted regularly
Healthy families are families that make chiropractic adjustments a consistent part of their winter routine. Adjustments reduce the stress on your body’s nervous system, allowing it to focus its energy on building an immune system that will keep you away from antibiotics and other medications. Remember, adjustments aren’t just for acute or chronic pain. In fact, regular adjustments are preventative and can keep you out of the urgent care clinic.
