As temperatures begin to cool, cold and flu misery—including sniffles, sneezing and coughs— begins to spread quickly in schools, offices and in homes. While completely avoiding germs and cold and flu viruses is impossible, taking extra care to nourish and strengthen your body’s internal systems to help defend itself during the cold and flu season will help improve your immune health.*
There are several natural solutions you can utilize to help promote a stronger immune system and keep your body feeling its best this cold and flu season. What follows are five of our top tips!
It is no secret that you don’t feel your best after insufficient sleep. And, in fact, studies have found that people who only get seven or fewer hours of sleep per night, on average, are three times more likely to develop cold symptoms when exposed to viruses. Do your best to get at least eight hours of sleep each night to maintain proper defenses against colds and flu.
Routinely touching your face with your hands, specifically touching your eyes, nose or mouth, greatly increases your chances of catching a cold or flu bug. This direct contact with your hands is an invitation for viruses to enter the body, as they are easily transferred to the hands on commonly touched items, including door handles, shopping carts, keyboards and more. To prevent this, take extra care during the cold and flu season to wash hands thoroughly and often, and avoid touching your face.
While many people like to indulge in more sweets over the holiday season—whether sugar plums or not!—this could make you more susceptible to cold and flu symptoms. Sugar suppresses the immune system, reducing your white blood cells’ ability to defend against bacteria and viruses. To be your strongest over the cold and flu season, limit your intake of sugar and eat a diet rich in nutritious, natural whole foods.
Your immune system is your body’s natural defense against cold and flu viruses, so making sure your immune system is strong will improve your chances of making it out of the colder months sickness-free. One way to keep your immune system running at its best is to ensure your body is receiving optimal amounts of amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Protein is a key support to your body’s immune defenses, and an important factor in a healthy, balanced diet. BodyHealth’s PerfectAmino™ contains the eight essential amino acids that will help your body build the protein it needs to run at its prime.
Adding nutritional supplements to your diet will help replace and replenish missing nutrition, aiding the body in the defense against, and detoxification, of harmful viruses and bacteria. In addition to key immune-boosting vitamins, you can also add BodyHealth’s Body Detox™ to your health regimen over the cold and flu season to help bind and eliminate toxins from the body’s tissues and assist your body in its natural detoxification process.*

You know that the cardiovascular system is responsible for pumping blood and oxygen throughout your system, right? And that the endocrine system manages hormones? And that your nervous system relays messages throughout your body?
Well, underlying all these systems is an astoundingly complex electrical system.
This electrical system is busy sending an almost uncountable number of messages to the muscles, bones, brain, and the cells. The human brain is the home to approximately 100 billion neurons, each firing about 200 times every second.
Sometimes it feels like there are more types and brands of water than drops in the ocean. You go to the grocery store and discover a huge shelf packed with different brands of water that all claim to be health-beneficial. Add in the hundreds of in-house water purifiers, and it can seem like a “sea” of confusing options (cue the pun).
Thankfully, your choice doesn’t have to be that complicated.
