Keep Your Family Virus Free

Practice prevention 

The old adage that prevention is better than a cure is true when it comes to handling seasonal viral threats.

While it’s important to prioritize a healthy diet, exercise, get outside for fresh air, and reduce or manage stress, it’s important to encourage these lifestyles without enforcing them like a drill sergeant.

Get informed

Select a wide range of health sources to ensure you’re getting all the information you need. While your preferred newspaper and television reporters may be well-meaning, they may not access sources that report research and news about natural health products, which may account for the paucity of news stories on their effectiveness.

Stock your at-home natural medicine cabinet 

Having a medicine cabinet stocked with natural products that work to prevent colds, flu, and other viral threats may help keep you and your family members strong against whatever virus is going around.

Know when you need assistance 

While it’s great to be empowered and self-sufficient about your health, any good CMO knows when to turn to other experts. Watch for signs that suggest you should see a doctor:

  • a high fever
  • a fever that lasts for more than a day
  • difficulty breathing
  • unusual symptoms
  • symptoms that are taking longer than normal to resolve
  • aggravations of any other health conditions

While a one-size-fits-all approach to health doesn’t work, taking measures and becoming more conscientious of our health—and that of our family—can help us better navigate the future.
