October Tips For Health
Immune Support During the Winter Months
For most of you reading this, the weather is changing fast, the days and nights are cooler, the leaves are beginning to fall. Some of us feel our energy falling, and possibly our sleep with the diminishing hours of sunlight.
This is also the time of year where colds and flu increase. We are hounded by ads telling us we need a flu shot. I won’t be getting one. In this blog you will find what I will be doing.
Here are my tips for October to assist your body and immune system in adapting to the seasonal changes, and the health challenges that come with this time of year:
Time to Raise Vitamin D: Taking vitamin D is probably the most important thing everyone can do to protect their health this time of year and all through the winter months. You will want about 5000 IUs per day. Some need more, especially in the darkest winter months.
Del Immune To The Rescue: The best supplement I know for raising immunity and protecting and clearing colds and flu. I suggest taking the 25 mg size 1-2 a day. Though I take the 100 mg size when I get a cold or flu.
Immunity and Intestinal Health with Probiotics
Probiotics are a key factor for your immunity and digestive health. Everyone should be including probiotic supplements or probiotic foods often in their diet. I love Del Pro. Del Pro is an active probiotic formula that has a small amount of Del Immune added to each capsule (Del Immune IS NOT an active probiotic).
Premier Probiotic Caps is another excellent choice.
Premier Olive Leaf Immune: This is another fantastic supplement to use should you get a flu. This is nature’s ‘antibiotic’. If I get something serious, I use this along with Del Immune, double my vitamin D intake, and double my probiotics for a few weeks. (Also, see Premier ImmunoVen)
Get Proactive and Cleanse Your Liver: This is a very good time of year to cleanse your liver. Everyone should do this at least once a year. We have two great choices. Use three bottles of Extended Health Liver Support (follow directions we send along with it), or purchase a bottle of Premier Liver ND. Start slow and build up as you can tolerate it. Cleansing your liver is one of the most important and effective ways to prevent disease, protect against all kinds of illness, and increase your health and wellbeing, physical and emotional.
Heart and Metal Detox: If you have cleansed your liver, then this would be a perfect time to cleanse all your arteries and blood vessels. At the same time this magnificent product clears your body of toxic metals and other chemicals. We all collect these toxins in our bodies, it is unavoidable. It is wise to do this cleanse at least once every 3-5 years. When is the last time you gave your body a deep cleaning?
Water and Hydration: Last but not least, keep hydrated. This is one of the easiest and most important things you can do to avoid becoming ill, especially from cold and flu, and to prevent all kinds of aging diseases as well. Begin every day first thing, by drinking a minimum of 2 full glasses of warm water. Then wait at least 30 minutes before eating breakfast. Throughout the day continue to drink adequate water between meals.
These are my #1 tips for October to improve your health and set yourself up for a healthy, happy fall, winter and holiday season.
Wishing you great health,
