Prepare Yourself and Boost Your Immune System
TORONTO, Jan. 13, 2014 /CNW/ - It's on the bus, in the elevator and in the next cubicle over. It is making headlines from coast to coast. You can't escape it on social media. Cold and flu season is HERE and COLD-FX - Canada's #1 natural cold and flu remedy brand - is urging Canadians to be prepared.
"The cold and flu are both infections that affect the nose, throat and lungs," says Sherry Torkos, Pharmacist and Author of the National Best-Seller The Canadian Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine. "There are three key cold and flu phases that are important for Canadians to consider in helping to maintain optimal health: prevention of illness, management of symptoms and recovery."
Critical to minimizing the impact of a cold and flu is to keep your immune system strong by taking care of yourself naturally, with good food, good sleep and good hygiene. Another may be COLD-FX, as it is clinically proven to reduce the frequency of colds and flu. Similarly, for those who are sick, COLD-FX can help reduce the severity and duration of these symptoms. Naturally sourced, COLD-FX is the #1 Pharmacist and Physician recommended over the counter cold and flu brand*.
"We are currently in the peak of cold and flu season," Torkos adds. "Canadians should consider taking a daily defense remedy, such as COLD-FX, that will not only help prevent illness, but also help support recovery and long-term health. We will continue to see reported cases of cold and flu right through spring."
Flu for Thought
With the impact of cold and flu cases rapidly growing, particularly in western Canada, it's important to take precautions to help prepare and reduce the potential impact of future spread. As doctors offices fill up, Pharmacists are on the frontlines, consulting with a high volume of patients. Torkos recommends the following natural ways to help prevent infection and keep your immune system strong.
