1. Believe in a healthy state. Ranked NO. 1 for a reason. The strongest signals our cells receive is from our perceptions of the environment. I cannot tell you how many times, okay hundreds, I have been exposed to cold/flu germs and never caught the virus.
Why did I not get it but someone else did? I can assure you that I am not an avid hand washer, in fact I appreciate germs and the role they play to keep us healthy and challenge our immune system to respond over and over again. I did not get sick because I knew I would not get sick. I believed it, my subconscious mind believed it and hence my cells believed it.
2. Get more sleep! Statistically proven, sleep and stress levels can have a major effect on your health. If you are feeling over burdened from home or work life, you may be more susceptible to cold and flu infections. Stress levels can affect our bodies ability to get restorative sleep that heals and keeps us healed.
3. For the times that we cannot tap into these deep beliefs. Drink tons of water! Flush out toxins, germs, fats and more to make sure everything is flowing through you rather than remaining stagnant where it can do damage. Don’t give those germs that you happen to pick up a place to stay, instead - flush away.
4. Focus on the good stuff! Our cells are either in the open/growth mode or closed/survival mode. What determines either is the information the receptor receives from it’s environment. When we are happily moving through life, our cells are open to receive nutrients and growth. When we are focusing on anger/resentment and not enough, our cells receive the signal to shut down; which in turn does not allow for growth/healing/nutrients. Sound familiar?

5. If all else fails and you become ill, look into homeopathic remedies. As a homeopath, I have had so much success with
- the remedy called Gelsenium. A homeopathic remedy for flu and other viral conditions. Of course, the remedy Oscillococcinum works wonders also for cold and flu season. Check out the brands Bioron and Hyland for homeopathic remedies.
