Preparing for Cold and Flu Season

With colder weather fast approaching here are some easy tips on how to stay healthy this winter season.

Diet and Lifestyle Tips

  • Eat a well balanced diet including whole, organic (when possible) foods with lots of fresh fruit and veggies
  • Participate in regular exercise
  • Get plenty of sleep and rest/relaxation time
  • Minimize stress – stress has a tendency to suppress the immune system
  • Avoid toxicity in our water, food, air and personal care products

 

Vitamins and Other Supplements – All available at the office

Just ask the Front Desk Staff or Dr. Ting!

  • Low potency multi-vitamin with a good source of trace minerals
    • Example: Vita Lea from Shaklee
  • Antioxidant supplements – Take one of the following suggestions
    • Vitamin C (500-600 mg taken twice daily)
    • Vitamin E (200-400 IU in mixed tocopherol form)
    • Selenium (100-200 mcg daily)
  • Probiotics (eg. Bifidus Plus Yogurt from Shaklee)
    • It is especially important to supplement with probiotics if you have been on antibiotics as these prescription drugs completely wipe out our body’s natural flora (which are essential to protect our body from harmful microorganisms).

 

Homeopathy

We carry two Heel products at our office that will help combat cold and flu season.

  • Engystol – helps to strengthen the immune system before you get sick
  • Gripp-Heel – helps to treat the symptoms and speed up the recovery time from colds or flu
