Flu Season Is Among Us

Flu Season Is Among Us

Sick Child Blowing Her Nose

Flu season begins each year in October and peaks in January and February in the US.  That puts us in the middle of flu season.  There are several natural ways to prevent us from catching the flu. Your immune system is the best defense against infection from getting into your body.  One way to boost that immune system of yours is getting your weekly chiropractic adjustment in Wayland!  The adjustment makes sure your body is in proper alignment and able to work at its full potential.  Think about this the next time you are about to call in sick to your chiropractor. Getting adjusted when you are sick is the BEST time to get adjusted!

Other ways to avoid catching the flu in Wayland MI include:

  • Drinking plenty of fluids such as water and herbal tea that will flush the body of bacteria
  • Washing your hands (especially before eating)! Viruses can live on a surface for up to 48 hours and can enter the body through eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Taking a supplement of vitamin D3 with vitamin K
  • Staying active by trying to get 30 minutes of exercise 3-4 days every week
  • Eat well to be well… food is the best medicine! Dark leafy greens and foods high in vitamin C are extra important this time of year
  • Get around 7-8 hours of sleep each night
  • Reduce stress levels
