Stay Healthy - 7 Tips to Prevent Common Cold and Flu

We've all been there - stuffed nose, high fever, aching joints, coughing and sneezing. Yes, the common cold and flu can make us feel quite miserable for week or so. And since there is no known cure for these diseases, our best bet will be prevention. Getting flu shot is another option, but if you are like me and want to stay healthy naturally and scared to death from needles, following these simple tips will help you enjoy life in good health and spirit.

  1. Wash your hands - most germs live hours, even weeks on all surfaces around us just waiting to be picked up by the next unsuspected victim. So wash your hands often - this will help you and the people around you to stay healthy.
  2. Don't touch your face - this is one of the major ways of contracting flu or cold because viruses enter our bodies through our eyes, nose and mouth.
  3. Drink plenty of fluids - drinking lots of water, green tea and unsweetened juices will flush out the toxins from your system and will keep you hydrated.
  4. Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits - they are full of vitamins that will boost your immune system and help you stay healthy.
  5. Exercise regularly - Exercises such as aerobics and cardio speed up the heart to pump larger quantities of blood; make you breathe faster to help transfer oxygen from your lungs to your blood; and makes you sweat once your body heats up. These exercises help increase the body's natural virus-killing cells.
  6. Relax -There's evidence that relaxation increases the interleukins in your bloodstream - interleukins are leaders in the immune system response against cold and flu viruses. Taking yoga classes can help you learn some essential relaxation skills. Attend some hot yoga studio and you will benefit from the sweating too, which will help you clean your body from toxins. And don't forget rule #3 - Drink lots of fluids.
  7. Take supplements - Nature provides us with the best products that can improve our lives and help us stay healthy. For example, taking regularly propolis will strengthen your immune system by increasing leukocytes activity and antibody formation, build up your resistance to colds, flu and infections. Other natural products that are known to boost immune system are resveratrol, manuka honey and bee pollen.


Following these simple tips will help you boost your immune system and stay healthy. It will help not only to prevent common cold and flu but many more viral diseases. Remember, learning from nature and making smart, educated decisions will help you to support a healthy and happy lifestyle.
