  Cold and Flu Season


Welcome to the New Year!!  With the amazing energy of a new start, there is also reality of keeping your self healthy in this wintry season.  There are very easy steps to add in during your day to keep your immune system at full charge. 

Vitamin D is the most important supplement for us in Minnesota. During a talk, Dr. Carly Erickson of Edgewater Natural Family Medicine here in Alex, mentioned that we only get an adequate amount of Vit D from the sun for One week in July in Minnesota. 2,000 IU's is the recommended amount but I take 5,000 a day, everyday. It is used by every system in your body and is significant with warding off seasonal depression. 

Magnesium is a mineral that is in low consumption with the decline of nutrients in our food. You can find it in Dark Chocolate which is amazing but It is used by our bodies at higher rates when we are under stress.... Well that pretty much includes all of us most of the time.  It can help with restless legs, muscle cramping, restless sleeping and for me heart rhythm.  I feel the powder form is absorbed easier. 

If you get exposed to the crude....Tea Tree oil was the most prominent form of healing modality across the globe before the invention of Penicillin.  It is anti bacterial, anti virile and anti fungal.  Always test oils for sensitivity before applying to the skin but I put it on my lymph nodes along the neck and on my chest when I feel like something might be brewing.  

And of course getting Full body massages to boost your immune system and decrease your stress is a must in these cold weather months. 

Please do your research on all of these suggestions and see what calls to you.  But don't overload your system with everything you find that might be helpful... there IS too much of a good thing. Use your gut instinct and pick two ideas to get you started.. then add from there. 

I have added a new Series called Experiencing Awareness that you can read up on and see it it's a good fit for you. Have an amazing fall and enjoy the change!
