Prepping for cold & flu season
Updated: Dec 6, 2018
For the last few weeks I've been prepping my immune system for cold and flu season. My intention is to stay healthy as I'm heading in to the busiest time of the year at Voozsh. You need me to show up, so I cannot get taken down by a bug that lasts for several days or longer.
I've been taking an immune support and increasing my daily dose of Vitamin D. Living in Chicago, it's important to take vitamin D year round, but especially during the winter months. Vitamin D turns on key peptides in your immune system that trigger a strong anti-microbial response, allowing you to quickly and effectively fight off invaders before they can develop into a full-blown infection.
Flu season usually in full force mid December to mid January when we see the least amount of sun. Yes, colds and flus are contagious, but it always happens at the same time of year, why? because we have less hours of sunlight and we spend way less time outside. Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin. We absorb vitamin D naturally through our skin and that's just not happening in the midst of winter.
I will also keep extra probiotics and aloe on hand should I catch a bug. This way my system will be prepared to decrease the intensity and duration.
It really starts now. It's best to get in front of it instead of waiting until it's too late... you'll be grateful you did.
