Immune Booster: Your First Line of Defense This Flu Season
October is winding down, which means we’re going from tricks and treats to “tis the season”. We wish that just meant it was the season to be jolly, but unfortunately, it also means flu season is steadily creeping up on us.
According to the CDC, although the flu season can vary, it typically begins in October and peaks between December and February. Although you can’t guarantee protection from the flu, the CDC recommends some preventative tips for keeping the flu away:
- Wash your hands regularly
- Avoid contact with anyone displaying symptoms of the flu
- Stay home from work or school if you’re sick
In addition to these simple preventative measures, you can also do things to boost your immune system. This helps you fight off any invading pathogens that might be trying to make you sick. Some easy ways to boost your immune system include:
- Staying away from sugar
- Eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables
- Exercising regularly
- Supplementing with vitamin D
- Getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night
At Valley Medical, we also offer the Immune Booster injection, which contains a combination of Engystol and Gripp-Heel, two homeopathic ingredients that are scientifically proven to both prevent viral infections, like the flu, and reduce the duration and severity of an infection, should you get one. These homeopathic remedies give your body a natural immune boost by increasing white blood cell count by as much as 41 percent!
Arm yourself against the flu this season, by coming in for your Immune Booster injection before you’re exposed to the virus. Want to know more? Contact us now!
