Cleanse & Nourish So Your Body Can Heal

Winter Sickness

It's that time of year again, the Christmas season when people are plagued with sickness. Have you noticed that people don't stay home anymore when they are sick?? No matter where you go it seems you are running into sick people coughing and spreading germs all over the place. It's quite easy to be exposed to all sorts of sickness. I think that the reason so many people get sick is due to the overabundance of sugary goodies. It's fun to treat yourself every so often to sweets, but many people can't stop with a small amount. We need to understand that sugar zaps our immune system, thus making it easier to get sick during the Christmas season. I always tell my kids "no sugar when you are sick". When I talk to sick people I ask them if they are eating sugar, I have yet to meet one that isn't. They usually reply that they eat lots and lots of sugar and when I tell them that the sugar is keeping them sick they don't seem to care. So if you enjoy being sick, eat lots of sugar!!

To stay healthy during the winter season we drink fresh squeezed orange juice, this is a great immune booster! In the winter I like to stock up on oranges and will buy several cases when the price is low. I keep them in the garage where they are kept at a good cold temperature to keep them fresh. Many people will ask me if they can just drink the concentrated orange juice from the store - we call this kind of juice "orange soup" because all of the goodness has been cooked out. You can't even compare the nutrition of fresh squeezed orange juice to the "orange soup" variety, orange soup just doesn't work, so don't waste your time. The extra work of squeezing it yourself is well worth the benefits that drinking it will bring to you and your family.

Another great immune booster is the Immune System Formula, we like to take this one at the first sign of a cold or if we have been around sick people. This works great to stop a cold in it's tracks if taken right away. I haven't had much luck in it helping after a cold has taken hold, at that point I will take the Super Garlic Immune Formula or Lymphatic Formula, along with lots of garlic & high dosages of Vitamin C. I'll hit my choice of herbs quite hard, taking them 6 to 10 times a day - my colds never develop into anything worse and I can usually knock a cold out in 3 - 5 days. I went fourteen months without getting sick using the above herbs. When I did finally succomb it was mild, I knew I was sick, but it didn't take over like it did before I took herbs.

I used to dread the winter season, I would be sick for at least 6 weeks and always during Christmas. It helps that the steel plant nearby has been shut down, but what makes the most difference is that I rarely eat sugar anymore. So if you want to be healthy during the winter season eat sugar sparingly, and keep some good immune formulas and infection fighters around.
