The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend getting your flu vaccine in the months of October and November in order to help prevent flu and colds. However, even the flu shot may not capture all strains of flu. Many of my clients reported that they became sick after getting the flu shot.
Here are my recommendations to treat and prevent flu and colds via a natural, drug-free, holistic approach:
1. Proper Hydration:
When you are dehydrated, the “sewage system” in your body is stagnated. Diseases of all kinds can use that unhealthy environment as an incubator. How much fluid should you have everyday? Usually I recommend eight to 10 cups of fluids (each cup about 8 oz.) This can include six cups of our Cleansing-Balance Tea, one to three cups of purified drinking water, and one cup of soup. Our Cleansing-Balance Tea not only hydrates you, but also cleanses your liver and kidneys.
2. Plenty of Rest:
Most people require seven to eight hours of sleep per day. If you are short on sleep because of a busy schedule or habitual insomnia, try my 10-minute meditation any time of the day to make up lost rest time. Go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to download this 10-minute meditation guide for free. People who suffer from habitual insomnia may need direct consultation with me to develop a healthy sleep pattern.
3. Avoiding Cold and Damp Environment
To combat this year’s freezing climate, get a space heater to keep you dry and warm in the room you work or rest. I purchased a space heater online for about $15. This is truly a lifesaver and doesn’t incur a large electricity bill for heating the entire home.
4. Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program
Whenever possible, avoid sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and chemicals. They are favorite foods for yeasts and parasites. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with the above. If you follow my “Eight Commandments,” you will be able to prevent new assaults to your body. My yeast-free cookbook: Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking will guide you to learn more about what to eat and what to avoid.
5. Herbal Therapy to Improve Your Immunity:
When your immunity is strong, yeasts, parasites, bacteria or viruses will not be able to cause havoc in your body. Your immune cells will act like a Pac Man to clean up these invaders before they have a chance to cause you illnesses. Our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is designed to control the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites and remove toxins in your body, so that you can keep your immunity strong. If your energy is low and your mental concentration is poor, I would suggest that you also add Female Vitality or Male Vitality, depending on your sex.
6. Stress Reduction:
If you perceive that your life is stressful, in addition to daily meditation using my 10-minute meditation guide, prayers or chanting can be very effective in reducing stress. Some people only pray or chant when they need help. Prayers or chanting are like spiritual showers. Your physical body can smell when you don’t take a shower everyday; likewise your spiritual being smells when you don’t pray or chant everyday. Prayers are free. Keep praying or chanting everyday to reduce your stress and maintain your physical and spiritual wellbeing.
7. Daily Exercise
Regular exercise improves your blood circulation, transportation of nutrition, and secretion of endorphins. Endorphins are natural morphine produced within your body. They enable you to feel that you are in a calm yet high state naturally through exercise. You can exercise anywhere. I usually do in-place jogging while praying more than 300 times a day at the same time, everyday, rain or shine!
