Beat the Cold and Flu Season… Naturally

It’s that time of year again when it’s necessary to build up your defenses to germs in the air. Dr. Jurack shares 4 tips on how you can improve your Immune systems for a healthier body.

  1. Diet: Watch your sugar intake. Watch for hidden food sensitivities such as corn products, dairy or gluten. Check your digestive health. If you are using medications such as Tums, or Prilosec your gut is not healthy and can weaken your immune system. Probiotics are good for balancing your gut.
  2. Stress: Increased Cortisol in your system, caused by stress, will decrease your immune system.
  3. Physically: How healthy is your spine? The nerves in the upper part of the spine control the function of the immune system. If you sense a cold coming on we recommend getting adjusted.
  4. Supplements: Zinc lozenges are a good supplement but make sure there is no added corn syrup. Probiotics are good and can actually help with strep throat. B Vitamins help when under a lot of stress and Fish Oils are good. The list goes on and on… Oregano, Echinacea, Thyme. Essential oils can also aid in the process of boosting your immune system and providing a natural alternative to fighting off cold and flu season.

Always….. Try natural remedies first before taking meds.
