Colds and Flu Season

Yes there is the cold and flu season again.

We may not consider this time of the year very pleasing but it’s inevitable when climate changes. We may not see it coming our way only to find ourselves in the middle of chorus of sneezes and cough in offices and at home.

Here are some tips to consider evading a chorale of cough and sneezing group. 🙂

ü  Have a Flu Shot once a year– yes, a vaccine of flu shot can help.  I do this yearly specifically for my daughter who goes to school as colds and cough is always present in a classroom. A flu shot with AN1H1 normally ranges from Php1000 to 1,200. Fair enough right? Instead of buying medicines every now and then to treat cough and colds and paying hospital bills in cases of a complex sickness. Just make sure to have your child/children examined by your family doctor prior to taking vaccines of any kind.

ü  Take plenty of Fluids– this can be the old fashion way of treating various sickness but loading up our body with liquids can help our system draining various toxins inside us. 8 to 12 glasses a day is still best. If you want to add flavor then try lemonade and fruit juices. In doing this, please do the natural way.  Fruits are kinda’ cheap during this season. So drink, drink and drink.

ü  Move your body-Walk, Dance, Jump, and Run. Do whatever you want for as long as you sweat. Sweating can help flushing out viruses from our body by making us fit and healthy. Don’t sit around!

ü  Get enough sleep– who doesn’t want to sleep, right? It is the most comforting way to combat any illnesses and stress.  Indulge yourself once in a while by having a long sleep or try power nap in your office if you can.

ü  Avoid or lessen your vice intake-If you find yourself succumbed in drinking alcohol weekly, puffing cigarette during your break, and having a night life religiously I think you should think again. Remember even robots and machine needs some time-out once in a while so how much more our body.

ü  Take Vitamins– instead of spending money on vices mentioned-above, why not try loading your system with vitamins. Vitamin C, D and E is essential to our body.

ü  Eat green leafy vegetables– who says we can also get vitamins and minerals only from fruits? Another great source of vitamin C is bell pepper. Yes, green and red peppers give a pronounced vitamin C than any other citrus fruit we consume regularly. Try also spinach, malunggay leaves (Moringa Oleifera), broccoli, and some camote tops. Camote tops are rich in antioxidative compounds that may protect our body from oxidative stress which is often associated with many diseases including cancer and cardiovascular diseases.  So let’s Go Green!

ü  Eat Fish-try to have a salmon diet as well.  Salmon fishes are said to be beneficial to our body because of its Omega 3 fatty acids which prevents chronic inflammation. Omega 3 fatty acid locks moisture to our skin making it more youthful looking. Who can say no to FISH! 🙂
