In my Over 20 years of employment at OJA, I've never called in sick once, and I must admit, I never believed the theory, that you can get sick by getting a chill. (As my Mom always said, sorry Mom) I believe it's all from the germs. I've encountered several close friends and family over the weekend who are suffering from a terrible cold . . so. . .

Here are my Top 6 Tips for staying healthy and beating the cold & flu. .

  • #1 EXERCISE
  • - Muscle builds the immune system
  • #2 VITAMIN C
  • - I am a great supporter in "Airborne" which is a Huge Vitamin C Boost!
  • #3 FLOSS & GARGLE
  • - The amount of bacteria that lies between your teeth is unimaginable
  • #4 WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN
  • - Anytime your out in public or shake someones hand, door handles. . the list goes on. . . and don't touch your face after these encounters
  • #5 EAT HEALTHY
  • - (My theory: no fast food, stay away from "pop". . just for starters)
  • #6 AVOID STRESS
  • - (if possible)I wont get into this right now, but their are several things you can do to limit your stress levels.

    Most of these are just common sense.. Right?, but I was surprised to hear on the Early Show about a month ago, they Announced that "exercise contributes to fighting off the cold and flu." Now... I thought "Is there anyone that does not know this?"

    So. . . Hence, my Tips. . . (For people who just might Not Know) I love learning things of interest that I do not know such as: This morning I read an article in the Grains & Greens Magazine. Aspirin suppresses your immune system. So, bear the headache, until absolute necessary.

    It was based on Research, Research & Research. . . and according to My Cousin Mike Munger, (Registered Dietitian, of Munger Consulting, LLC),. . . It Must be based on Medical Research!

    Stay Healthy & God Bless . . .
