The Naturopathic approach to cold and flu prevention is focused on strengthening one’s immune system so it is able to fight off viruses without you getting sick. This multilevel approach is heavily focused on a lifestyle that includes a healthy nutritious diet with limited processed foods and refined sugars, proper hydration and regular exercise. All of these naturally boost the immune system. 70% of our immune system is within our digestive system so it is important that it is functioning properly. Stress and lack of sleep both impair the immune system so stress management and proper sleep nightly are essential.
The above combined with frequent and thorough hand washing are excellent habits to prevent getting sick. However when that is not enough, there are plenty of botanicals and supplements that can boost the immune system.
