Now that cold and flu season is here even the healthiest can get knocked down. People effected with a cold or the flu can experience symptoms such as fever, chills, cough, sore throat, congestion, muscle/body aches, headache and fatigue. Long Island Health Coach and Founder of Season Winter, Season Gorny gives her clients some holistic tips to keep their bodies healthy during this time of year. “We all know that a nutrient dense diet and physical activity helps keep us healthy, but there are some supplements that have been shown to help during Cold & Flu Season as well” explains Season. As always, Season recommends checking with a medical professional before starting any supplements or herbal remedies. “Vitamin C is a great way to boost your immune system” states Season “Foods like peppers, dark leafy greens, kiwifruits, broccoli, berries, oranges, tomatoes and green peas are high in Vitamin C and are easy to add to your daily routine.” “Vitamin D is also a great supplement for protecting against cold & flu” Season recommends “getting your Vitamin D levels checked with your medical professional, since many of us tend to be deficient during the winter months.”
As a Holistic Health Coach, Season also talks about herbal remedies such as Echinacea, Oregano Oil and Elderberry which can help protect against or lessen symptoms of cold and flu.
This latest blog on Season Winter also explains that a healthy digestive tract is important as well. “Since approximately 80% of our immune system resides in our digestion, it is important that we keep it healthy and functioning properly.” Long Island Holistic Health Coach, Season recommends reducing processed foods, taking a high quality probiotic supplement, adding fermented foods to your diet and staying hydrated. Sleep is also a vital part of staying healthy, “getting a good night’s sleep, helps your body to rest and reset itself” Season Winter recommends her clients establish healthy bedtime routines, which include limiting caffeine and sugar late in the day, avoiding large portions before bed, going to bed around the same time every evening and limiting bright screens (TV, Computers, Phones, etc) at least 1 to 2 hours before bed. “Physical activity is also something that our clients should continue during the winter” explains Season “we tend to have a harder time staying activity since it is colder out.” Season advises that there are plenty of at home exercises that can be incorporated daily, if you find yourself having a hard time getting out to the gym.
“It is important that we learn to listen to our bodies” says Season “if we feel run down, then we need to learn to care for our bodies in a healthier way.”
