Kids are back at school, the air is getting chilly, you are entertaining with Thanksgiving and tempted with sugar at every corner, this is the breeding ground for the start of cold and flu season! Do not wait until the colds are full blown to attack them, start now. I always October is my PROACTIVE month to build my immune system, that way when bugs come, I am more equipped to fight them off or reduce the time symptoms will effect my daily living.
In order to boost your immune system, try the MCC 3 step SUPERCHARGE program
STEP ONE: THIS IS THE MONTH TO SUPPLEMENT
I know that most of us are on and off with our supplement compliance. This month be ON! Try a 3 month immune charge supplement program. MCC can help you understand what supplements are best suited for you, typically immune supplement cocktails include: vitamin C, ginger, echinacea, moducare, astragulus, zinc, probiotics and vitamin D.
STEP TWO: BOOST AND BUST FOODS
Certain foods boost your immune system while others bust. Foods that boost include fruits, vegetables, green powders, fermented foods like yogurt or kombucha teas, garlic and chicken soup. BUST foods are the ones that contain SUGAR and TRANS FATS. Avoid added sugars and these fats at all costs…be careful, these are sometimes tricky to see, look for words that mean the same thing (trans fats: hydrogenated, palm oil and sugars…well basically anything that ends in ose).
STEP THREE: YOU KNOW WHAT YOU MUST DO….RELAX!
When I mention relaxation to a member, they give me a blank nod, as if -of course I am relaxing…but not sure if I am really relaxing…this means your are NOT RELAXING. When I say relax it means, manage your stress with the best proven stress management techniques: exercise, yoga, meditation, relaxation devices: spoonk mats, light therapy, acupuncture, massage, guided imagery…it really means putting the time aside for you. This does not mean read a book, fold clothes are watch TV, this is self awareness and breathing time to recharge your body. Take you own little challenge…can you set aside 10 minutes for you a day to recharge…properly recharge…
