Flu Season! Four Tips To Boost Your Immune System And Avoid The Flu This Year.

Written By Dr. Sandra Miranda, ND

Ahhh, October is upon us!

Typically by this time of year people have gotten refocused – have you?  Moms and Dads get super busy making sure the kids settle into their new class or school, they start to think about what they want to get done before the Holidays and they put a big effort into their jobs and/or businesses.

All these activities are great, however in the meantime kids are in their classrooms with lots of their friends, breathing the same air, using the same “tools”, sharing the same resources.  With that comes its own set of problems, germs spread, bacteria grows and before long your precious child comes home sneezing and coughing, having caught a cold or the flu from one of their classmates.

If your immune system is not in peak condition, it’s only a matter of time before you fall victim to that same cold or flu … and then you swing into reactionary mode to recoup as quickly as possible.

Let’s do everything we can to help prevent you and your family from going through that this year.  While there is no guarantees when it comes to avoiding common colds and flus, here are four simple, effective, and of course, natural steps you can take at home to build up your immune system now, before the sneezing starts!


  1. Add more Immune Building foods to your diet:
    Natural, organic foods such as Garlic, Onions, Vegetables, Seeds and Fruits all provide your body with the nutrients your immune system needs to become and stay strong.


  1. Catch Some Rays Now!
    Sunlight triggers the skin’s production of vitamin D. If you are not going to be out too long then take Vitamin D drops during the winter months.  It is a super effective way to boost up your immune system


  1. Consider Probiotics:
    Supplements reduce the incidence of respiratory and gastrointestinal infections.  Head to your local health food store and pick out a good Probiotic or pop into our clinic where we carry a great probiotic and other supplements to help you stay healthy this season.


  1. Come in for a natural Booster Shot – our very popular drinkable homeopathic shot will help to decrease the frequency at which you get colds and flus and if you do get sick then it will help to decrease the intensity and length of your symptoms.


Along with those tips, let’s not forget about all the routine health tips such as, get plenty of sleep, drink water to stay hydrated, limit alcohol intake, exercise frequently … you know the routine.

It may not sound all that exciting, but when your co-workers are sneezing around you, you will appreciate that you took these preventative measures!

As always if I can help in any way, feel free to call the clinic for an appointment. 905-239-3900
