With the onset of cold and fu season, we all want to do our best to minimize
the risk of becoming ill and help reduce the impact, or recover more quickly,
if we do catch a bug. Yes, we can use the home remedies like chicken soup
or large doses of Vitamin C. Scientifc research has shown some things actu-
ally boost the immune system and fght viruses. Some of the steps to take for
treatment and prevention are listed below.
We all know about the frequent hand washing and avoid touching the eyes,
nose, and face. In addition, frequent use of hand sanitizer can help prevent
spreading germs.
Try to start the day well-fueled. Research from the
Netherlands showed a breakfast of 1,200 calories
boosted blood levels of gamma interferon, an an-
tiviral agent, by 450 percent. Skipping breakfast
showed a seventeen percent decrease in gamma
interferon. Of course, those 1,200 calories
shouldn’t be pancakes, maple syrup and a side of
bacon. A fruit smoothie, whole grain toast and orange juice are great things to
Go green with tea. Research from Canada showed green tea added to samples
of common cold viruses stopped virus replication. Put simply, green tea keeps
a virus from growing and spreading inside the body. A chemical compound
called EGCG, found in highest concentration in green tea, is the responsible
party. Drinking green tea at the onset of cold or fu symptoms will help keep
symptoms from getting out of control.
Get plenty of “Zzzs.” Lack of sleep can decrease im-
mune system function by 50 percent. Eight straight
hours of sleep is what will help virus-attacking “natural
killer cells” operate at their peak effciency.
Get moving! Regular exercise stimulates the immune system. When sedentary
adults were compared to moderately active adults (45-minute
brisk walk fve days a week), active adults were found to have
colds half as often. And remember, when in the gym, make
frequent and plentiful use of the antiseptic wipes.
During cold and fu season, just a few simple steps can mean
the difference between being down with illness for a few days
and feeling great every day.
