STAY­ING WELL

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Informed -

The best way to avoid get­ting colds and flu this year is not to get sick in the first place. Keep­ing in good health by hav­ing a healthy life­style and not burn­ing the can­dle at both ends will give you the best chance of fight­ing off viruses.

FEEL A COLD COM­ING ON? DO THIS!

If you’re just start­ing to feel a cold com­ing on, try gar­gling plain water. A study of al­most 400 healthy vol­un­teers found those who did this were sig­nif­i­cantly less likely to come down with up­per-res­pi­ra­tory-tract in­fec­tions – of­ten linked with colds and the flu. The great thing about it is that you can do it just about any­where at the first sign of symp­toms.
