🤒💙📟💉🍵🌿💤💧🍋Cold & flu season is approaching, but I've got my toolkit at the ready! As a human living with #t1d
, it's important to take extra care to avoid both of these common illnesses. My cold & flu prevention basics include the following (as circumstances/resources allow): flu shot, frequent hand-washing, hydration, sleep, regular exercise, ferments (sauerkraut & kimchi by my talented and sweet pal Val @harvestpantry
💕), sea salt & hot water gargle, lots of veggies. The extras (when resources permit): oil of oregano and herbal teas (my go-to fave teas are by ❤️ @tradmedicinals
- Echinacea & Elderberry and Throat Coat. I rely on these big-time when I feel like I'm on the verge of a cold...and also to help alleviate symptoms if a cold takes hold). 🦄 QOTD - what are your tried & true cold and flu season prevention/healing tools?
