No matter how healthy, almost no one is immune to common colds and flu – it’s just a fact of life, especially in a cold climate. However, there are things you can do to help you boost your immune system and recover from colds faster, such as frequent hand-washing, eating a well-balanced diet, drinking plenty of fluids and getting enough rest. It may seem like common sense, but when life is hectic, the commute is a nightmare and it gets dark at 5 pm, it can be easy to forget these simple rituals that boost your immune system.
Booking an early appointment with your naturopathic doctor (ND) before cold and flu season puts you well on the path to prevention. Your ND can also help you to feel better faster if you find yourself with a lingering viral infection. Advanced injection and inhalation therapies that use all-natural substances are clinically proven to fight viral infections and stimulate the immune system.
Nobody understands natural cold and flu products and their effectiveness better than a naturopathic doctor, so before grabbing a bunch of natural products off the shelf at the drugstore, book an appointment. Your ND knows which products work and which ones are right for you personally. You’ll be thankful for it.
