Swine Flu - You Can Prevent This!

The swine flue - much like any other type of illness - is not to be feared, if you are willing to take preventative measures. This is key! Start now, and some type of virus as this will either pass you and your family by, or it will come in a much lesser degree. So here are some preventative measures you can take:

1) Wash your hands frequently especially when you are out in public: after grocery shopping (and pushing a shopping cart), after filling up the gas tank, after using public restrooms especially, etc. Use wet wipes, or a natural hand sanitizer (with tea tree oil, etc.) rather than other hand sanitizers that can be really harmful for children.

2) Strengthen your immune system by taking the following on a daily basis:
* Vitamin D (D3 not D2)
* Fish oil (I like Carlton brand, lemon flavor, and poor it on my salads - no fishy flavor, just lemon - yummy!)
* Green drinks - some form of powdered greens. I have an excellent brand to recommend if you'd like to email me: Green foods have mega-high micronutrients and are very low in calories - a great food to have on a daily basis. In a smoothie, you'll hardly know its there (just put it in a colored cup for children so they don't see the green color).

3) Eat lots and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables! Don't go easy on these - go easy on all the other stuff you'd like to eat (breads, sweets, pastas, meats, milk products, etc.)! Fresh produce does make a huge difference in our health!

4) Place fresh whole peeled onions in the main rooms of your house (at least when others around you have the flu). This has been proven successful in absorbing virus germs.

There is no fear if you are prepared - and you can prepare in many simple ways as this.

For your best health,
