Winter is on its way and the new flu season begins leaving us unprotected to all sorts of viruses and nasty germs.
There are various natural ways to keep in mind in order to prevent catching an illness or have to go through all the discomfort of a potential sickness. The first and most important thing to remember is washing our hands frequently. Our hands is the part of our body that carries the highest number of germs as during the day we may touch so many bacteria using our hands. If we spend most of our daily lives outside and have no access to the appropriate facilities we may use a bottle of sanitizer that can be easy to use and light to carry with us.
The second thing we need to remember is to drink loads of water. In the winter due to the low temperatures people usually drink less water than they do in the summer. This is very wrong. Our immune system needs to stay hydrated in order to be able to fight any unwanted viruses. For more details on how to prevent a flu naturally, read the following article.

As the 2015-2016 school year is starting, the flu season is beginning. This season I am particularly focused on prevention. There are always nasty viruses going around the schools.

My girls and I make hand sanitizer that we put in a spray bottle. They leave it in their desks and school to keep germ free (as much as possible).
2. Stay hydrated
Bring a water bottle with you wherever you go. I send a large bottle with my girls every morning that they drink all day at school. Water helps every part of your body work efficiently. The immune system can work at its best when full hydrated and has the strength to ward off illness.
3. Organic, plant based diet
Increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables in the diet is helpful to bring in all of the vitamins and nutrients for a strong immune system. Those that have Vitamin C are most important.
These include, papaya, orange, lemon, strawberries, broccoli, leafy greens, peppers etc. Other important natural foods include apple cider vinegar, garlic, onions, ginger, turmeric, coconut oil, seeds and nuts…
