It is beautiful outside. Fall, in most ways, is my favorite time of year. Of course, I do not like fewer hours of sunshine, but I love so much more.
However, from Halloween through New Year’s is when most people get sick with cold’s and flu’s. If you are prone to those, you need to be pro-active!! First, of course, there are too many food temptations during that time of year, but we live through it. Let’s try to live through it this year being healthy.
If you see me on a regular basis, you might already be taking what you need. And everyone knows I’d rather test and make it is what you need.
I don’t necessarily think we need the same thing day in and day out for long periods of time. Are you getting your vitamin C in food? If not, either change your food or take some C. This is the time of year that vitamin D becomes really important as we are not exposing our skin to the sun as much, and even if we are, it isn’t as effective. And if you will keep a few things at home, at at the first sign of a sniffle, take it, you will be better off.
If you see me, I will make suggestions for you personally. Without that I suggest that you keep some echinacea and goldenseal at home. At the first sign of a sniffle, take it for a week, along with the C and D, and see if perhaps you can bypass the cold.
If you have school children, you can help fortify them too so they do not get sick. It is that spooky, scary, frightening time of year so listen up and prepare!! Happy Halloween!
