I don’t know about you, but staying healthy during cold and flu season is difficult for me. It seems no matter what I do in order to fly under the illness radar, I end up getting snagged and given a ticket straight to the bed for 3-5 days. When I was in nursing school, we got a free flu shot every year, but of course, I typically ended up getting sick anyway! What I hate more than anything is knowing my kids are probably going to get sick as well. With Caitlin being 14, she is old enough to take it in stride and treat the symptoms and ride it out. Poor Henry on the other hand, literally thinks he is going to die whenever he gets sick, so avoiding that is a boon in my book. This year, I decided to do some research and see what advice was available to me to prevent getting sick.
Staying Healthy During Cold And Flu Season
- Hygiene: Good hand hygiene is paramount to having a fighting chance to avoid illness. When I worked in the hospital, I bet we washed our hands 50+ times throughout a 12 hour shift. A good hand washing isn’t something to be rushed either as you need to actively wash your hands for at least 30-45 seconds.
- Disinfect: Think about all the surfaces you touch through your day and then calculate the probability they are cleaned on a regular basis. During a microbiology class, we were asked to choose a surface we thought would have the most bacteria, swab it and grow it in a petri dish for 3 days. Several of us chose the floor, our shoes and the door knob and interestingly enough, some of the most germ filled surfaces were the sink faucets, our desks and our hands!
- Be Proactive: The best defense for the cold and flu season is a good offense. During this time of the year, it is more important than any other to eat well, stay active and get enough rest. If you are negligent in any of these areas, the likelihood of your getting sick increases.
- Supplements: Many people do not like to take OTC or prescribed medication, so therefore they tend to take no action to treat or even try to prevent their illness. There is a great homeopathic supplement available that may be the key to your staying well this season. Oscillo is a natural alternative to treating and possibly preventing the symptoms of colds and the flu. In France, Oscillo has been successful in treating the symptoms of colds and flu for more than 65 years.
How To Fight The Flu
If I can find how to fight the flu and its symptoms even before it hits my family, I was happy to give it a try. When I heard that Oscillo had been effective in reducing the severity as well as the length of the illness, I wanted to try it. In the clinical trials for Oscillo, participants said they felt less sick overall than without the product. With the product made with no drugs, no side effects and was non-drowsy, I felt safe to give it to my family. I was sent the box of 30 capsules ($27.99). You can take one capsule every 6 hours or up to 3 times a day in the prevention of cold and flu symptoms. The product dissolves in your mouth in a few seconds with no bitter taste. Oscillo advertises you will get relief from symptoms like headache, fever, chills, body aches and fatigue. I actually got the flu right before the box arrived, but no one in the family had gotten sick yet. I had everyone take the capsules as directed and no one got sick and my symptoms of fever, body ache and chills seemed to go away more quickly than I remember when I had the flu before. In my opinion, the Oscillo worked well in getting my well sooner. To stay abreast of what is new with Oscillo, you can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
