Healthy Habits to Combat Flu and Cold Season
Seasonal influenza has arrived, and cases are projected to increase as the weather gets colder. Virtually nothing will completely eliminate the risk of contracting the flu or a cold. However, there are ways to lower your chances of getting sick this flu season. Being sick is never enjoyable, but it’s even worse if you’re unprepared for it and risk missing fun holiday festivities.
It’s essential to understand the precautions you can take to keep healthy when the virus begins to spread.
Always strive to avoid getting sick in the first place as the best course of action. Practice simple precautions like washing your hands frequently, taking immune support supplements and vitamins regularly, and avoiding close contact with those that are showing symptoms.
If you’re feeling ill, avoid infecting others by staying home.
Boost Immunity with Vitamins & Supplementation
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.
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!
Get the Flu Vaccine
Receiving an annual flu shot may make all the difference this holiday season. Getting the vaccine is one of the best strategies to prevent the flu from ruining your time with family and friends that you’ve been planning for months.
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 symptoms.
