Natural Remedies for Cold and Flu

Here’s a shocker…you may spend more time nursing a sore throat, fever, and runny nose than you do on vacation. Add it up: Adults get about three colds a year on average, lasting up to two weeks. On top of that, up to 20% of us will also get the flu, which can linger even longer.

Although there’s no cure for cold or flu, building up your immune system is your best defense…so here are some strategies to do just that…

We know lack of sleep makes us more prone to getting sick so it’s important to get about 7 hours of sleep a night. Try going to bed and waking up at around the same time too. This fortifies your immune system assuring it’s doing its job to fight off viruses.

Chronic inflammation prevents your immune system from working properly. Add more oily fish to your winter diet. Salmon, tuna, and
mackerel are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and help to reduce inflammation in the body.

Echinacea is a clinically proven natural product to strengthen your immune system. It relieves symptoms and shortens the duration of an infection. There are many variations of Echinacea so make sure to look for supplements made from FRESH extract of organically grown, GMO-free Echinacea purpurea. It comes in liquid spray dispensers and you’ll find them in your local drug or natural health store.

Winter is long, so protect your health and try to make the best of it. I’m Bryce Wylde and now YOU’RE HEALTHIER!
