3 Holistic Methods To Prevent Winter Colds

Winter can make staying clear of pesky colds and flu viruses more difficult. From exposure to sick coworkers or children in daycare, germs can spread fairly quickly. But before you resort to your local drugstore for conventional cough syrups or antibiotics, try giving natural remedies a chance first! More specifically, in order to promote wonderful health, easy breathing, restful sleep, and vitality during colder months, try using the following holistic methods below. They’ll be sure to increase your vibrancy and energy levels this winter.

The 3 Musketeers

Organic turmeric, ginger, and honey are by far the most useful natural ingredients to use during cold and flu season. A teaspoon of turmeric can be added to hot milk and be taken right before bed, promoting anti-inflammatory properties and acting as an immune modulator. Fresh ginger and turmeric root can also be used together in herbal teas as tonic boosters, especially because ginger is antiseptic and can help your body sweat out toxins. Ginger also aids in vomiting, cold sweats, and upset stomachs. Additionally, honey is known to soothe sore throats, making it an effective natural cough suppressant.

1) Gift Your Body

Along with using natural spices and herbs, there are a few non-negotiable gifts you should be giving your body all year long, especially during colder months. This includes getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night, reducing stress levels, reducing alcohol and sugar intake, and drinking plenty of water to flush out toxins. Altogether, these methods can help alleviate any extra strain on your body, boost your immune responses to foreign invaders, loosen up congestion, and promote internal balance and healing.

2) Fruits from the Gods

Most health experts will agree that fruits should be eaten during their specific seasons. For winter, there are in-season fruits that can aid in healing quickly, including heart-throbbing pomegranates, buttery avocados, and sweet bananas. Pomegranates have high amounts of Vitamin C and antioxidants, especially useful when your body is fighting off a cold. Avocados are high in Vitamin E, a vital component of your body’s disease-fighting abilities. Bananas contain high amounts of Vitamin B6 and help reduce fatigue, stress, and insomnia.

3) Reminder

Our true homes are not our houses or exterior corridors but are actually our bodies. And though we can get swayed away in our daily to-dos and responsibilities, it’s important to remind ourselves that respecting our bodies and fueling them with unprocessed, natural goodness can allow us to manage our lives more productively and happily. And as we keep ourselves healthy during flu and cold season, prevention is always easier than treatment. So a body that is treated well throughout the year will be more robust in fighting off disease and infection every day, no matter the season.
