By January 17, 2013Health Tip

During cold and flu season a strong immune system can make the difference between staying healthy and ending up in a doctor’s office. There are many ways to strengthen your immune system and avoid spending time in a healthcare office. One great way is to change your diet.

This article in Runner’s World talks about the best foods to eat to improve your health. The right nutrients help your body boost its defenses and prepare for an onslaught from flu and cold germs.

In addition to the diet changes you can make, you can also practice good hygiene by washing your hands after using the restroom and before eating, covering your mouth when sneezing, and sanitizing any community items you use (keyboards, desks, etc.).

A few simple healthcare changes can make all the difference and help decrease the presence of flu and illness during the winter season.
