Defeating Seasonal Cold and Flu Bugs in Dirty America …10 Tips

Baby Eating Cute 245x300 Defeating Seasonal Cold and Flu Bugs in Dirty America …10 Tips   There is an estimated five nonillion (5 x 10 to the power of 30) bacteria alive and thriving on Earth this minute.

Seasonal colds and flu are a nuisance by any definition. And we always get some version of what to do this time of year to advert this curse, yet people still end up in bed for two or three days or worse, in the hospital with IVs coming out of their bodies.

It’s at the holiday season when activity increases, excitement is in the air, children’s school programs abound, mall crowds are converging and preschoolers are running around with runny noses while grown-ups are coughing and hacking in elevators and fast food restaurants.

It makes us want to bury our heads in our sleeves, turn the other way and get away from the offender as fast as we can.

Eighty percent of all infections are passed from person to person.¹ Millions worldwide get sick with colds and flu every year. Germs and viruses are easily spread. Take for example, the escalator rail in your local department store or even the airport during this peak travel time. Studies have been done on the amount of bacteria that has been found on that escalator rail and it is nasty. The Today Show, a few years ago, followed clinical microbiologist, Dr. Philip Tierno, around and found things as extreme as fecal matter on the seat in a cab. All it takes is for someone to touch a surface you then touch, get the bacteria on your hands then touch your face. BOOM! YOU’VE JUST GIVEN THAT BUG A FREE RIDE INTO YOUR MOUTH, NOSE, EYES and EARS.²

But here is a surprise. Did you know that going outside when its cold will not give you a cold or the flu? Or going out with wet hair can’t make you sick? Viruses are only shared with someone who is already infected.³

So what are we to do to stay healthy during the winter months when we spend time in crowds? Here are ten tips that just might help you avoid the dread cold or flu at this time of year. Follow them and you can substantially decrease your chance of getting sick.

  • No. 1 – Wash your hands often with a good old soap and water doing it carefully and well. Sing “Happy Birthday” twice while washing and be sure to get under your nails. Use a hand-sanitizer, alcohol-based, only when it’s impossible to wash.
  • No. 2 – Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or when you cough or sneeze then safely toss it. As a last resort, if you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow or upper sleeve (regardless of what Mom told you about not sneezing on your clothes).
  • No. 3 – Eat a healthy diet low in white carbohydrates and saturated fats and high in alkaline foods like greens and fruits that are organically grown.
  • No. 4 – Exercise even if it’s just a light easy walk. Get your body moving.
  • No. 5 – Eliminate or drastically reduce soda drinks. They are poison to your body. Get your kids or grandkids recognizing they lower their immunity and that “Cancer in a can” is a good phrase to adopt to break the soda habit.
  • No. 6 – Avoid people who are sick. Give them your apologies as you sidle away, but get out of their vicinity.
  • No. 7 – Keep hands away from your face, eyes, nose and mouth—all of which are transportation openings for bacteria and viruses. It’s these moist areas that act like magnets for cold and flu, bacteria and viruses.
  • No. 8 – Get lots of good rest. A minimum of 6 to 8 hours a night keeps your immune system strong. Our bodies demand rest to function well.
  • No. 9 – Take supplements. Vitamins and minerals are worthwhile. Asea is the newest and latest discovery and it increases enzymes, so important to wellbeing, like nothing else that has come before. Your own production of glutathione is able to rise 500 times with the Asea product. Given this benefit, Asea has the ability to repair or replace broken down cell function.
  • No. 10 – Drink lots and lots of water. Flushing toxin build-up from our bodies is critical to overall health as it excellent hydration. Alkaline ionized water is number one the best water you can drink.

‘Bugs’ are less inclined to invade our bodies when our immune system is strong. Follow this HFL “10-Point System” and get through this flu and cold season with greater success than you ever had in the past.

Shop carefully and protect your health!

Stay fit! Stay well!
