It's that lovely time of year again. Cold and flu season. When the weather gets damp and cool and people huddle around inside. Also, when there's an endless supply of candy and chocolate in every corner. From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, these things combined create a perfect storm for getting sick (and passing it around).
Kids seem to have issues sharing toys, but have no issues sharing their germs. Once one gets sick, it gets passed around...and around to everyone in the family. If can feel like this season is just an endless ball of kleenex, wipes and snot sucking.
One of the hardest things for me when I first became a mom, was seeing my baby sick. Even if it was just a stuffy nose, it was so hard seeing him struggle. Sleepless nights, snot sucking and drooly coughs and sneezes in your face. I get it ALL.
This is why I want to help make this cold & flu season less miserable and more manageable for you and your family. The key is having the right things in your medicine cabinet and knowing exactly how to best use them at first sign of a cold or flu. It's also about cultivating daily immune supportive habits to reduce chances of getting sick.
As your naturopathic doctor, I go through all of this with you and help calm any stress around not what to use or how to use it. You'll feel more confident and ready for this cold & flu season. It's actually pretty fun exploring how nutrition nourishes our immune health and how natural therapies have been used forever all over the world to boost the immune system during this time of year. If this is something you'd love to learn more about, book a chat with me and we can get started!
Trust me when I say that you've got this and there's hope for a healthy and happy cold & flu season :)
