Flu season is coming

According to the information on CDC website “This time of year is called “flu season.” In the United States, flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter months. Influenza activity often begins to increase in October and November. Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February and can last as late as May.” we are approaching flu season.What do we need to do to protect ourselves from flu?

My personal prevention approach has always been three most important supplements. Probiotics ,Vitamin C and Vitamin D are my defense system. Probiotics improves your immune system so your body can defend against unwanted guests. Vitamin C encourages production of white blood cells also acts as a protector for your cells from being damaged by free radicals and plays a great role in absorption of iron. When it comes to Vitamin D, the best source of this vitamin is the sun and winter times we don’t get enough sunlight.Especially if there is food allergies in the picture and a body has problems absorbing vitamins and minerals because of this reason is a big problem.

Best of all other than the information above 🙂  DON’T forget to wash your hands!!!

 

 

Shower time!

Now it is summer time and the heat is on 🙂 I have rather sensitive skin and  always looking for quality body wash which does not leave me itching after the shower or gives me little skin pumps.Tea tree oil is a great ingredient in a body wash because of anti-microbial,anti-fungal & anti-bacterial aspects of it.

Dr. Bronner`s Magic Soaps All in One Hemp Tea Tree Soap is a really great product I used many different soaps but this one is great. You really feel clean and fresh.It is also great if you have acne prone skin.I would recommend a drop of  a dimesize amount  on your favorite shower pouf or washcloth.The combination of the other oils like jojoba and olive oil in the product is great even if you have dry skin.I also love the smell of lavender and especially before bed you can choose to use same brand soap just in lavender.
