Fight the Flu!

It’s flu season, ladies! Stay Flu-free and healthy with these tips and tricks that I absolutely swear by, and soon, you will too!

Oil diffusers

There are essential oils for almost every purpose, but ones I absolutely swear by for fighting sicknesses are the “thieves” oil and some good old tea tree oil! The diffuser will make your room smell great and act as a humidifier as well if you do your research and get the right one! Don’t want to invest in a diffuser? Rub some of the oil on the insides of your wrists, and it will do the trick!

Ditch the Emergen-C

Instead, invest in some vitamin C capsules! As yummy as the powder packets taste in a nice glass of cold water, Emergen-C packets are filled with sugar, and though they have 1,000mg of vitamin, C, most capsules are that or more, and you can take one without the added sugars! One packet has 7g of sugar!

Supplements

Supplements that help with sickness aren't always just Vitamin C! Immune Boosting supplements include probiotics, vitamin D, and Zinc. These beat bacteria and will keep you healthy. Also, anti-inflammatories like turmeric are great for clearing your system out and keeping your blood flowing!

Charcoal

Activated charcoal has been used for YEARS to rid the body of poisons and toxins. If you do have the stomach bug or a nasty cold, pop an activated charcoal pill (available on Amazon) three hours away from all other medications and supplements -- especially birth control! Activated charcoal works to absorb all the yucky bacterias in your body and send them out - STAT!

Air purifiers

Last but certainly not least, investing in a good air purifier or humidifier can save your lungs and sinuses! Clear out the gross dorm room air and this will save you this flu season!! Great for allergies as well, this is a multi-purpose one.
