Protect Yourself From Swine Flu, Naturally
Protect Yourself from Swine Flu, Naturally
From: Gabriel Traub, USA
I received so many calls from people in a panic about swine flu, that I wanted to share some information that can help.
Symptoms of Swine Flu include fever, coughing, fatigue and headache.
It is important to be smart and take precautions, but there is no need to panic. Please pass this along and let's help prevent this outbreak together.
Wishing you good health,Gabrielle Traub, certified homeopath.
What can you do to protect yourself and your families?
· A number of studies show that taking Homeopathic Influenzinum 9c once a week during outbreaks can prevent you getting the flu.
I have a limited quantity in stock, so please contact me as soon as possible if you would like to purchase some from me.
Give your immune system a boost
The best way to prevent getting sick is by keeping your immune system in tip top shape:
· TAKE VITAMIN C
The recommended dose for healthy adults is at least 1000mg. Speak to your doctor if you have kidney disease before taking Vitamin C. It is important to increase your water intake when taking Vitamin C
· TAKE AN IMMUNE SUPPORT SUPPLEMENT
During an outbreak I recommend taking a herbal immune support supplement such as "The Wellness Formulae" by Source Naturals: available at most health food stores. (This should NOT be taken for extended periods.)
· GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Nothing affects the immune systems performance as not enough sleep. Most adults require between 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night.
· MANAGE YOUR STRESS
Make sure you're getting enough down time. Exercise is a great way to reduce your stress. Yoga and meditation have been proven to reduce stress levels.
Simple hygiene practices such as washing your hands with hot soapy water, especially before eating or after using the bathroom has historically been shown to reduce the spreading of infections.
· AVOID CROWDED PLACES
If you are immunocompromised or have small children, it is best to avoid crowded places when at all possible. Aeroplanes are notorious for spreading airborne infections.
These types of outbreaks like this makes me think about the impact of conventional farming methods and the treatment, and as a consequence, the health of the animals we eat. Another reason to support organic farmers.
