Healthy Habits Against Flu and Colds

Seasonal influenza is just around the corner again. And whether you’re ready for it or not, it is coming. Virtually nothing will eliminate the likelihood of contracting the flu or a cold. However, there are ways to significantly lower your risk of getting sick. Being sick is never enjoyable, but it’s even worse if you’re unprepared for it.

It’s essential to understand the precautions you can take to keep healthy when the virus begins to spread.

Stock Up On Supplements

While you’re still well, spend some time stocking your supplements and medicine cabinet. Make a list of the medications you need to replace and replenish. And also, remember to throw away any that have expired.

A good source of immunity boost are supplements and vitamins. Vitamin C is good for the adrenal system and balances the body’s immunological and allergic responses. Additionally, a healthy immune system depends on Zinc to promote energy generation and healthy skin.

It may also be wise to stock up on nasal sprays, decongestants, antihistamines, and medications for fever and discomfort. You might want those that aid in clearing airway passages, healthy breathing, and general well-being.

If you have complicated medical restrictions, you can always visit a compounding pharmacy and get personalized supplements and medication. After all, each patient has unique needs. Medication is not one-size-fits-all!

Schedule a Flu Vaccine Appointment

An essential step in preventing the virus is receiving an annual flu shot. Getting the vaccine is one of the best strategies to prevent the flu from entering your home. If you contract the flu, your symptoms will probably be milder and less severe than those who don’t get the vaccine.

Colds spread more slowly than the flu, which is highly contagious. People can spread the virus up to a day before any symptoms appear. Furthermore, the vaccine might guard you against the flu‘s most prevalent strains.

According to the Centers for Disease Control And Prevention projections, this flu season has seen at least 2.8 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 1,300 flu-related fatalities.

The CDC advises getting a flu shot yearly for everyone six months and older. Additionally, you can use antiviral prescription medications to address flu disease. Contact Eastern States Compounding Pharmacy if you have inquiries. We serve areas in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York.

Always strive to avoid getting sick in the first place because it’s always the best course of action. Practice simple precautions like staying at home if you’re ill, washing your hands frequently, taking supplements and vitamins regularly, and avoiding crowded indoor areas with a high risk of flu transmission.
