WINTER HEALTH

How’s your winter health?  As virus’ and bacteria rage war on the human species primarily in the northern hemisphere, consider the following tips when managing yourself through these frigid months:

  1. STAY HYDRATED (water 80-120 oz./day) – Helps support a strong immune response and reduces episodes of bloody noses, hemorrhoids and fissures (anal cracking/drying).
  2. FIND TIME TO EXERCISE – Don’t let these months keep you home-bound.  30 min. of productive exercise at least 3 times a week.
  3. EAT HEALTHY – Avoid an overindulgence of those comfort foods.  Eat your fruits and veggies.  Have a smoothie….
  4. VITAMIN/MINERAL SUPPLEMENTATION – Calcium/magnesium/zinc with vitamin C/D and a B complex supplement will help boost your immune system.
  5. GOOD NIGHTS REST – 7-8 hrs.  We are more susceptible to infection at this time of the year, and a good nights rest helps recharge our hormones improving our immune response.
  6. KEEP WARM – Plan ahead and dress appropriately for the conditions.
  7. NASAL SALINE (simply saline or ocean) – What and why?  Dust/allergen exposure and drying of our nasal passages can lead to possible upper respiratory symptoms.  Rinsing and moisturizing these passages can help prevent secondary infections.
  8. LIGHT THERAPY – Can be very beneficial depending on your location and sun exposure.
