|Flu Season Line of Defense: Hand Sanitizer & Rainbow Light Mushroom Therapy|
I think one of the best plans is a preventative one. Here are some cutting edge ideas to keep you healthy this flu season:
Vitamin C: This important vitamin works by strengthening your cellular walls. If you are prone to bruising or your gums bleed easily, you probably could use some extra vitamin C. You can take between 500 to 1,000 mgs a day in divided doses. You can only absorb about 500 mgs at a time so you might want to skip taking any more than that at one sitting. You might also want to try a buffered vitamin C like Ester-C. Unlike straight ascorbic acid, the buffered version won't over-acidify your tissues and urine.
Mushroom Supplements: Organic mushroom supplements are really hot right now as this common fungi are known to strengthen the immune system, fight infections and even cancer cells. The one I recommend is made with several organic mushrooms and ginger. Rainbow Light Certified Organics Mushroom Therapy has: Trametes - Shitake - Maitake - Reishi - Cordyceps. 1 capsule per day is all you need but I also enjoy lots of marinated mushrooms on my salad!
Hand Sanitizers: I keep one of these in each handbag in case I want to stop and eat something while I'm out. Sort of like washing your hands on the fly. They come in all sorts of scents but choose one like mine that kills 99.9% of germs. The Essence of Beauty Citrus Coconut Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer pictured above has little moisture beads. The Bath & Body Works PocketBac Anti-bacterial Hand Gel is called Lunch Box and smells like a Honey Pretzel. I guess it would be perfect for a lunch box. Hand sanitizers not only work on your hands but on other suspect surfaces such as handles and water fountains.
