First of all, you need to drink plenty of water every day and to prevent colds drink ginger tea with lemon in cold weather. I think that everyone knows about the beneficial properties of ginger so we will not dwell on this. I love to drink this tea because of its benefits and I feel that it really helps.
Well, if you are already sick or at the beginning of poor feeling, take a closer look to Echinaforce Hot Drink – Echinacea with Black Elderberry is a traditional herbal medicinal product. This drink helps with colds and flu, headaches and muscle ache. We have already finished a couple of cans of this drink, the first time he appeared last fall was when we got sick and we needed to quickly recover.
Try to eat more fresh vegetables and fruits, berries,greens. Eat less processed foods. All the bad things that have accumulated, the body are trying to clean out, because most often if we are sick then we have no appetite, because the body is focused on cleansing and not on assimilating and processing food.
At the moment, I think that in the cold season, the multivitamin complexes will be better than ever. Now I like by Viridian High Five Multivitamin and Mineral Formula. They contain Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) which contributes to normal mental performance and a reduction in tiredness and fatigue, also vit C, natural carotenoids, Iodine(from organic kelp), Selenium contributes to normal maintenance of hair and nails, the normal function of the immune system, normal thyroid function and for the protection of cells from oxidative stress. This ‘oxidative stress’ appears to be a major factor in many human diseases. Chromium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. Iron is essential for the healthy production of haemoglobin and red blood cells. Vegan, Kosher, Veg Caps. Also this formula is copper-free.
4. MAINTAINING IMMUNITY
This will help a unique blends by unbelievable Health. We met them for the first time last fall too (there was a stressful autumn). It helps to recover quickly. Suitable for the whole family to help in supporting the body’s natural defences year round.
5.PROBIOTICS. Digestive system
I believe probiotics are important for maintaining the immune system. Person can regularly consume foods rich in prebiotics, which are fibers that feed gut bacteria and help them thrive. Such as:
- Sauerkraut (it is best to choose an unpasteurized product, as pasteurization destroys much of the beneficial bacteria)
- Some fermented dairy alternatives(such as soy- and nut-based milk and yogurts)
6. Essential oils
It would be nice to use essential oils during cold season. Or if you get sick try some of them, add them to the aroma diffuser, bath or inhaler. Most popular are:
- Thyme (antiseptic properties)
- Eucalyptus (antibacterial and antiseptic oil,stimulates the immune system)
- Oregano (antiviral and antibacterial,perfect for combating infections)
- Frankincense (well suit as a natural cough and lung remedy)
- Hyssop (helps with chronic bronchitis and supports the lungs)
- Lime (antibacterial and antiviral, will help your immune system fight off germs)
Hug your loved ones more often in cold weather, it has been proven that embraces increase the immune system as it gives us a feeling of warmth and calm. These feelings drive away the stress, which in any case is good not only for the immune system😉
These were all my tips for the moment. I hope this helps you. I wish you not to be sick❄
