Protect Your Family from Cold & Flu with a Few Easy Tips - #ChurchandDwight #ad

One of the seasons I love best is Autumn, better known as 'Sweater Weather'.
But sweater weather can only mean one thing – the start of cold and flu season is here! 

Luckily... there are easy ways to protect you and your family from colds and flus with only a few easy tips.

The Flu Shot:
And that's all I'll say about that. This is an entirely personal choice, but one that is available to ALL Canadians free of charge.

Practice Healthy Eating:
Maintaining a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables will help to keep you healthy. To help keep pace with your hectic schedule, take a multivitamin to help support your immune system. If you’re like me and don’t like swallowing pills, try Men’s and Women’s Complete Multivitamins – they even come in an easy-to-take gummy format and taste delicious. 

Wash your hands. Wash your hands before eating, wash your hands after using the washroom... wash your hands. Nuff said.

Keep Active: Keep your body moving every day. Take a brisk walk or spend 30 minutes at the gym to keep your immune system healthy and your stress levels low.

Combat Stress: Stress can affect how your immune system functions and a weakened system can lead to colds and the flu. To keep your immune system strong, get plenty of rest and relax.

Drink Plenty of Liquids:
Fluids in general will help to soothe a sore throat, loosen congestion and flush out any bacteria in your system. Drinking plenty of water will also help prevent dehydration and can replace any fluids lost from a fever or respiratory infection.

Rest and Recuperate: Unless you were one of the lucky ones this fall and managed to avoid getting sick, you may have to spend a few days indoors resting. Keep plenty of tissue nearby, enjoy some Netflix binge watching and recover with Gravol™ Multi-symptom Cold & Fever.  This natural health product is an all-in-one anti-nauseant, pain reliever and fever reducer. The medicinal ingredients that make this formula so effective are Ginger and Willow Bark extracts, traditional herbal medicines used for centuries.

Know When to See a Doctor: 
The symptoms of different viruses and bacterial infections can be very similar and often confusing, which is why it’s important to know when to see a doctor. If you don’t start to feel better after a few days, your symptoms worsen or if you’re in a high-risk group to develop flu symptoms , you should see your doctor. 

Tip: Antibiotics are great for fighting the bad bacteria that makes you sick, but for some women they can also affect the good bacteria, making them susceptible to Bacterial Vaginosis (which causes discomfort, discharge and itching). If you’re prone to BV when taking a prescription medication, try RepHresh™ Pro-B Probiotic. Just 1 oral capsule daily while using oral antibiotics can help treat bacterial vaginosis and help maintain vaginal flora in a normal range.
