Kick The Cold

The weather is changing drastically which means cold and flu season is right around the corner. There are a few tricks you can use to help prevent yourself from getting sick this season.

 

1)    Ginger Root

Ginger root is my go to when I have a cold or sore throat! It's less than 50 cents and is super soothing. It also kills rhinoviruses, which cause colds in the first place. Chop it up and put it in your favorite tea or eat it raw

2)    Honey & Lemon

Honey alone is delicious but did you know it’s actually a natural cough syrup? Pair some organic honey with your favorite tea, and drop in a lemon. It’s a great recipe for immune support this fall.

 

3)    Turmeric

If you haven’t heard of turmeric, it’s magical. It’s a spice that has been used in India for thousands of years. It contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

4)    Orange Juice

Orange juice is like the staple for building immune systems. I recommend juicing oranges yourself or eating a whole orange to make sure you get all the vitamin goodness.

 

I hope these few natural remedies help build your immune system up but remember the best way to stay healthy is to get rest, don’t stress, wash your hands as much as you can, and get your workouts in! Happy Fall J
