Thank you Dr Kristen Bobik for some good advise on staying well
Here are my healthy, safe, and effective tips to take care of your health now and prevent the flu / colds this season:
* Probiotics daily: 80 % of the immune system is actually housed inside the digestive system!
* Drink a mug of warm water with half a fresh squeezed lemon: daily, 15 mins. before breakfast. It promotes liver detoxification, and the body getting rid of things that don’t benefit us
* NO hand sanitizer use: just like antibiotics, hand sanitizers kill both good and bad bacteria, which actually worsen our immune system. They also contain Triclosan, which is harmful to our environment. AND, if that wasn’t enough, most inexpensive store bought products don’t even contain the required 60-95% alcohol content that made the product effective in the first place (read: marketing scam). If you still like the convenience of using a hand spray, the only option I’d feel comfortable recommending is the Thieves Hand Spray by Young Living (made from therapeutic-grade essential oils).
* Chiropractic adjustments: boost the immune system and allows our body to function well so it can adapt and prevent flu from occurring. In fact just today I had a patient tell me “both of my co-workers that sit next to me at work are sick with the flu, and I haven’t gotten sick at all. In fact, now that I think about it, it’s been years since I’ve had a cold or flu!” Both health and sickness come from within, starting with the master control system (the nervous system and spine) that controls each cell, tissue, organ, and muscle.
