Avoid the Flu
If you’re like me and can’t take the flu shot – I get sick with the flu every time I have taken one here is some advice.
Physical activity stimulates the blood flow in your body, the clearing of your lungs
and the mobilization of many other factors in your body which improves your chances of
not getting the flu. Stay active. Get exercise. It’s better than the flu shot.
Hydration is important. Drinking your 64 ounces of water a day will help your
body’s immune system fight off the flu. Don’t forget to get plenty of fluids before you
are ill and if you get sick.
Nutrition is important. Eating a well balanced diet, which includes vegetables and
fruits is critical to avoiding the flu. Your immune system is dependent upon your diet.
Junk food, fast food, fried foods and fatty foods, all impair your ability to fend off
Avoid sick people. If a friend co-worker or family member is sick keep your distance.
Enjoy your health – it’s the most important thing you have!
