It is important that you and your family be prepared for the Cold and Flu Season. In preparing for this Flu Season a 2013 flu vaccine has been developed and will become available to the general public starting October. This vaccination has raised many questions and concerns amongst the general public. In a recent survey conducted by Strategic Counsel for The Globe and Mail and CTV approximately 53% of Ontarians say that they will not get the Flu Vaccine.
Clearly, the public is divided in its opinion about the flu vaccine available from Health Canada. As a
naturopathic doctor, and prevention care specialist, naturopathic medicine offers many preventative measures for strengthening the immune system. I strongly believe that if you choose either option regarding vaccination, alternative preventative measures should be taken. I have outlined some preventative measures as well as our action plan for a naturopathic flu clinic.
- Drink plenty of water and keep hydrated
- Take your Multi-Vitamin
- Gargle nightly with salt water
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds
