Here is all you need to know! If you do these 10 things, you will definitely stay healthy during flu season.

1.) Sleep! Get plenty of rest and try to get to bed between 9-10pm.

2.) Avoid sugar and processed foods-including fruit juices, sodas, pasta, and pastries.

3.) Exercise daily to relieve stress and increase circulation in the lymphatic system.

4.) Manage stress! Stress weakens the body’s ability to fight off viruses and bacteria.

5.) Incorporate homemade bone broth daily. Sally Fallon Morrell’s bone broth recipes are great and are found in her Nourishing Traditions cookbook.

6.) Hydrate! Water is the key to a strong and healthy immune system.

7.) Consume probiotics, or other lacto-fermented foods, every day. Foods like homemade yogurt, kefir, and saurkraut encourage the growth of protective bacteria and keep the body from pathogenic viruses and bacteria taking over.

8.) Epsom Salt Baths! Use 1 cup of Epsom salts in warm bath daily to help with detoxing.

9.) Every heard of using castor oil on your chest? Homemade castor oil packs over the lungs to help clear congestion.

10.) Take Fish Oil daily. It contains key fat-soluble vitamins and fatty-acids, as well as improves nutrient absorption. Follow these tips and you will have a flu-free year!
