Winter weather will soon be here and while some of us are excited for snow, it's important to remember it is cold and flu season. Dr. Sunny Gill has a few tips for us to make sure we can stay healthy this winter.
Sleep: your immune system is most active while asleep, and missing out on sleep makes you a target for viruses and infections.
Exercise: keeping your fluids in motion moves virus and bacteria particles out of your body as waste and makes your tissues more resilient.
Food: eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables naturally boost your immune system.
Hygiene: washing your hands and daily showers prevents the spread of germs, reducing the chances of infection.
Vaccines: inactivated viruses simulate potential infection, so when the real thing hits your immune system will be prepared.
