Immunity Boosters for Cold and Flu Season
By Charmaine Gooden
Cold and flu season is upon us. The best way to reduce the likelihood of developing a cold or flu, or to reduce their symptoms, is to strengthen your immunity with healthy diet and lifestyle choices, says Tamarah Chaddah, ND and Mardi Baum, ND of Puremedica Naturopathic Practice. (www.puremedica.com). The immune system is a complex collection of cells designed to keep millions of foreign invaders at bay each day. Fine-tuning certain aspects of your health routine, like sleep and stress management, can help strengthen your immune system’s defense against bacteria and viruses that cause conditions like the common cold and flu.
