Cold and Flu Workshop

Sneezing, fever, aches, sore throat. The season for colds and flu is upon us. Fortunately, you don’t have to be one of the many who are sidelined by seasonal sickness.

On December 8, from 5:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., we will be hosting a Cold and Flu Workshop at the practice.

This event is complimentary and open to patients and those in the community.

Boost Your Body’s Immunity

The primary goal of the workshop is to help people understand what they can do to boost their body’s natural immunity.

The best defense is preventative, and it’s doing the right things so that our body is healthy and strong so we can fight off so-called “cold and flu season.”

The Role of Supplements

We will break down some of the myths that people have about the cold and flu season. And we’ll discuss proper supplementation to help support our bodies. We’ll also talk about the role of stress and how it can shut down the immune system. Stress is one of the big triggers that leads people to get sick.

We’ll also discuss the role that the spine plays in our overall health and how that can be a cause of individuals having a weakened immune system.

What Symptoms Mean

Often people will try to suppress symptoms by taking over-the-counter medications. We’ll talk about the symptoms as actually being our bodies’ healthy response and even the cure for these temporary symptoms.

Rest and Resist Sugary and Processed Foods

If you’re unable to attend the workshop, we want you to know that one of the most important things you can do is rest. Many people aren’t sleeping enough, and rest is a major factor this time of year. They’re also not getting enough beneficial sunlight.

There’s no doubt that cookies, candies and an abundance of other sugary treats are in plentiful supply this time of year. For your health’s sake, it’s important to put the brakes on consumption of sugar and other processed foods. That’s because sugar and processed foods, in general, crash our immune system.

Here’s our recipe for a healthier season:

  • Rest more
  • Avoid sugary and processed foods
  • Increase your intake of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables
  • Get your spine checked and adjusted

We look forward to helping you and your family enjoy a healthier, happier holiday season and beyond! Give us a call today to get started! (204) 474-1159
