Fuzzy socks, Coffee and Pumpkin spice everything are the great luxuries that come with fall.
Unfortunately, fall also brings cold and flu season. Don’t worry though, with our tricks and tips below, you’ll be one step ahead of it all, and instead, feel vibrant and healthy!
Did you know more than 70% of people don’t consume enough fruit and vegetables?
Fruits and vegetables contain many vitamins and minerals that are good for your health and keep those colds away! These include vitamin A (beta-carotene), C, and E, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and folic acid. Folic acid also reduces food levels of homocysteine – a substance that may be a risk factor for heart disease.
Fruits and veggies can also help your digestive system, reduce obesity and help you maintain a healthy weight. They are also known for putting you in a much better mood throughout the day, so make sure you get at least two servings of your favorite fruits and veggies per day! If you have weight loss goals and want to explore a significant lifestyle change, Javan’s Medical Weight Loss Program has a track record of helping patients achieve real results!
Exercise and Self Care
Studies show that stress can work against maintaining a strong immune system. One way to keep the cold away is to partake in an activity, like yoga, that lowers stress. Try attending an exercise class of your liking two to three times a week, or if you don’t have time, try going for a longer walk or jog at home or on your lunch break.
Getting a massage or a facial is also a fabulous way to release stress and get some of that oh so important ‘me time’ you deserve! Have you tried a hydrafacial at Javan? Can’t beat a hydrafacial when it comes to relaxation and self-care!
B-12 and IV Hydration
Getting the right vitamins can be important for boosting your immune system and promoting a healthy lifestyle. B-12 is commonly known as the ‘energy vitamin’ and it’s no wonder that many people come to us at Javan for B-12 shots regularly.
Take it up a notch with IV Hydration plus an Immunity Cocktail Boost, which includes Zinc and Vitamin C, to help prevent cold/flu symptoms, as it not only gives you energy and hydration, but it can also keep your mood stable and keep you going all season long!
