What I want you to know is that there are possibly lots of alternatives to preventing the flu and colds.
You can possibly boost your own defense system through vitamin D, herbs, foods and even a soup called ‘Change of Season’ soup.
If you ask any construction worker if he gets sick in the winter the most common answer usually is ‘No!’
Why, you may ask? The answer is simple; vitamin D.
Construction workers typically get tons of sunlight and this converts cholesterol into vitamin D, and the body stores lots of vitamin D for the winter.
Vitamin D acts as and immune system strengthener, so that when a virus comes into your body, vitamin D is ready to ‘call in the troops’ to get rid of the invasion.
If there is not enough vitamin D in your body, the immune system will not turn on.
So you can possibly prevent a cold or flu by having high levels of vitamin D in your body. If you want to know your vitamin D level you can ask me to send you to a lab to check them out for you.
Furthermore, in a 2003 Harvard study, people who drank 5 cups a day of black tea for 2 weeks had 10 times more virus-fighting interferon in their blood than others who drank a placebo hot drink.
You can also use possible immune boosting herbs such as Canadian ginseng, astragalus and holy basil to help strengthen your body and protect yourself from the flu and colds.
Finally, foods such as garlic, fish, oats, mushrooms, barley, green tea and even “Change of Season Soup” (chicken soup with herbs such as Chinese yam) can all possibly boost your immune system.
So remember to get lots of get sunshine and eat, drink and be healthy!
