Personally, this never worries me very much and our family has been blessed to be able to beat the flu naturally year after year. But if you've been hearing reports about this year's flu and are worried about getting sick and want to stay healthy naturally without the shot, there are lots of ways to do it!
Here are some of the Top 7 Ways to Beat the Flu Naturally? (without getting the Dreaded Flu Shot!)
1- Wash Your Hands: Obviously, one of the best ways to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria is by washing your hands. Sometimes this can be taken for granted and forgotten, but truthfully, one of the easiest ways you can protect yourself is to wash your hands! Something you can try is to wash for 15 seconds or sing, "Happy Birthday" in your head to be sure you're washing for long enough. Be sure to use warm, soapy water when you wash. Also carry hand sanitizers in your purse for times when you may not be able to get to a sink.
2- Skip Sweets and Soda: Did you know that sugar and soda can suppress your immune system? Just 2 cans of soda (roughly 100g of sugar) can suppress your immune system and white blood cells by up to 40% making you more susceptible to catching an illness! Wow...no thanks! ;)
4- Get Enough Sleep: When you are too tired your body doesn't have enough strength to fight off disease and infection. Be sure you are getting 7-8 hours of sleep or at least enough that you know you will feel rested when you wake up in the morning. (You know your body; if you are frequently exhausted then you need to get to bed earlier and try to keep your sleep schedule as consistent as possible.)
5- Stay Strong with Exercise: Another great way to keep your body and immune system strong and avoid catching the flu is with regular exercise. Again, a strong body is more equipped to fight off sickness than a weak one, so be sure to workout on a regular basis with a program that includes both cardio and strength training.

Even with a near perfect diet its almost impossible to get all the nutrition we need to maintain a healthy body because of today's depleted crops, harvesting practices etc..
Proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle play such an important role in helping to prevent most major diseases (such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease), but getting proper nutrition in our modern world can be a such challenge.
Some of the supplement ingredients I like that can support your immune system and give it that extra support include: beta glucan, reishi, poria, and maitake mushrooms... read more about an Immune Booster I love here.
7- Detox Your Body: One of the best ways I've found for keeping my immune system healthy and preventing the flu is to regularly cleanse my body of toxins with a cellular nutritional cleanse. Biggest reason? People who suffer from frequent colds or other illnesses often find that their immune system improves after completing a regular cleanse. The immune system gets a profound boost after a nutritional cleanse because the body no longer has to fight harmful bacteria stuck in the intestines, so it is now free to handle the everyday threats against it.
