10 Steps to Protect Yourself From The Flu from Awakening Potentials

It's flu season! For some, getting "the flu" creates mild flu symptoms, and for others with an impaired immune system, the flu can be fatal. 

Protect yourself by planning ahead. 

We had many people coming in lately that have suffered from the flu. So, it’s that time of year for us to help you get proactive. The symptoms of flu come on very quickly, so your best bet is to support your immune system before it gets sick. Fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscles ache, headache, fatigue diarrhea and vomiting are the symptoms for the flu. Not something you really want to put yourself through.

10 Steps To Protect Yourself From The Flu

So here are a few things that we at Awakening Potentials recommend you should do to protect and prevent the flu:

Wash your hands frequently
Sneeze into your elbow when the urge arises
Carry and wear a mask when around people who are coughing and sneezing
Drink plenty of water and make sure to rest.
Decrease the sweets (you shouldn't really have any
Get off the carbs and gluten
Eat 5 cups of green vegetables per day
Take the right supplements to help you prevent it
Exercise regularly
Think happy thoughts

Supplements to help strengthen your immune system:
Vitamin D3: helps support immune health.
Muco Coccinum: homeopathic remedy to help prevent flu and to take when first flu symptoms occur.
Citrigen: helps relieve symptoms of flu (you want to take this at first symptoms of flu or cold.)
Super Flavonoids: antioxidant for the maintenance of good health.
Immucore: enhancing the function of macrophages, natural killer cells and T cell.

If you want to read more on Vitamin D3 and how it is an antibiotic, antiviral agent proven to be more effective at preventing "the flu" in scientific studies read what Beyond Celiac has to say. 

US Federal officials from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on December 4th issued a health advisory to doctors. Here is a quote:
"Although the flu shot protects against several strains of the virus, one strain—H3N2—has evolved to the point that just half of patients infected with it would benefit from this year's vaccine."
You may want to keep this in mind and have a plan B where it comes to protecting yourself from "the flu".
