In this entry I would like to discuss the best approach to take to keep yourself healthy during this wild flu season. I will go into supplementation, as well as other practices to keep you healthy during this season. Let's dive on in.

In order to keep yourself healthy and to keep illness at bay, it's very important to keep your immune system strong. So how does your immune system get weak? Well there are numerous ways. For one lack of sleep can have a negative impact on your immune system strength. Lack of a good diet coupled with lack of exercise will also have a detrimental effect on your immune system. Also, stress is a major contributor to a weakened immune system. So if possible try to keep stress at a minimum, and make sure to get plenty of rest and be sure to have proper nutrition.

Next, hygiene is very important. Make sure you are washing your hands frequently, especially after going to the gym, or using public restrooms or resources. Hand sanitizer is a great way to make sure that you are keeping hands free of germs. Make sure not to allow your fingers to enter your nose your eyes or your mouth. These are common ways germs enter your body.

Supplementation is also very important to maintain a healthy immune system. I always recommend echinacea, as I feel that it has very well documented benefits in keeping your immune system strong. I also feel although you should meet your vitamin and mineral requirements through your diet, I recommend utilizing a multivitamin as well. Supplementing with vitamin D3 is also recommended.

So hopefully this entry helps, and I hope that everyone reading is healthy and well. Wishing you the best of health during this season.
