In case you haven’t notice, the flu is everywhere right now. It’s winter, so it's not entirely surprising, but this year’s flu season has been a rough one. And if you’re a busy mom (what mom isn’t?), chances are you don’t have time to deal with being sick as a dog for weeks on end. In fact, you probably want to keep your family healthy. Dealing with the flu is one thing, but an entire household that’s sick is pretty miserable. So the question on everyone’s mind right now is, of course, how to boost your immune system so your family doesn’t come down with the flu and make your daily life the seventh circle of hell. Thankfully, you have some options.
Just recently I was wracking my brain incessantly, trying to figure out how I could keep myself, and my family, healthy. Then we all caught the flu just as December closed out, so I guess you could say I never did find the answer. Instead, I found a new definition of the word "miserable." There were times when I didn't know if we would make it out of a seemingly never-ending cycle of poop, vomit, fevers, and more poop, alive. The flu will break you, dear reader. It will break you so tough.
Tensions were high as a result of our miserable states, so my husband and I weren’t exactly avoiding fights. It was bad. Like, really bad. And that's when I decided to start researching all the ways I could live a somewhat healthier life by boosting my immune system. There was nothing I could really do about the flu at that moment, but you bet your ass I was invested in finding a way to avoid it in the future. So, with that in mind, here are a few practical tips and natural methods that can assist you in making sure your body is strong enough to fight whatever flu might come your way.
