Some Healthy tips I swear by...

Can you Say Slacker!!!

I will not neglect my blog

I will not neglect my blog

I need to write that 1000 times!!!

Its been a crazy year!!!

I have lots of updates but first things first its that dreaded time of year again....
FLU & COLD SEASON!!!! Cough, Cough, Sneeze!! YUCK!!!!

I thought I wold re post me healthy tips I swear by....

Some Things that I do to help keep me healthy that I swear by...

1. Frequent hand-washing, when you can't wash Purell!!

2. "Hands-off-the-face" approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face. If I have a itch I will use the inside of my shirt to itch it or a tissue.

3. Gargle with warm salt water.... I always gargle at the end of every night. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. In a way, gargling with warm salt water has the same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one. Don't underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative method.

4. A daily sinus rinse... Again I always do mine before I start my nightly treatments. I use a packet per nostril! Similar to 3 above, salt water is very effective In bringing down viral population.

5. Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vit C and D or take a vit C and D supplement. I take many vitamins I think its very important to keep up on all your vitamin levels so you can stay healthy.

6. Drink as much warm liquids as you can. This is a pretty easy step I love my Starbucks!!! Some yummy examples and some of my favs are coffee, hot choc, tea, or a hot chai. Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive.

Another thing if you're sick refrain from hugging or shaking peoples hands the worst is when you hug someone and then they are hacking up a lung a second later and telling you how sick they are... Um thanks for the hug!! 

ELBOWS people its ALL about the BOWS!!!!!

Stay Healthy out there!!! If your sick be selfish, please don't share your boogs!
