Ok, cold and flu season is upon us. And it seems like every time you turn on the news or talk to a neighbor, another person has the flu or is getting sick.  But, does that mean you have to get it?  Not if you're armed and ready!  Below are a few of the docs favorite suggestions to boost your immune system..naturally.

Drink Lots of water.  Ok you've heard this tons of times. But there's a reason why! Clean, filtered water helps to flush out toxins and detox the body.  And when you really stop to think about it, how much water are you actually drinking? The goal is at least 1/2 of your body weight in ounces of water.  So for example: if you weigh 150 pounds, you want to make sure you're drinking at least 75 ounces of water/ day.

Glutathione.  As long as we're talking about antioxidants here, let's talk about the master anti-oxidant: Glutathione.  Pronounced (gloota-thigh-own).  There's a lot of great benefits to this tripeptide amino acid but, boosting the immune system is one of its main benefits.  You want to make sure you get this amino acid via IV therapy, liposomal delivery or through an inhaled nebulizer.  (A nebulizer is a cool Darth Vader looking mask that delivers the nutrients right to your tissues).  Glutathione break down easily and when taken in pill form, isn't nearly as effective as the other routes of administration mentioned above.

Nutritional IV Therapy.   Now what does that mean exactly? Nutrient IV's allow for vitamins, minerals and amino acids to be absorbed directly through the bloodstream.  The high doses of nutrients available via IV are simply not possible to obtain when taking orally.  Nutritional IV's pack that extra punch your cells are looking for to keep you healthy!

Limit Sugar. Now what we're talking about here is refined sugar.  Yup, those processed ivory granules.  Sugar can promote inflammation and put a lot of stress on the immune system, therefore limiting it's bacteria and viral fighting powers.  We know it tastes good, but your cells are going to thank you in the long run when you're fully armed and ready for battle.
