The next cold and flu season will be here before we know it. Do you have all the information you need on how to take a holistic or over the counter approach to avoid getting sick? The fall temperatures might not have reached the Lowcountry just yet - but they'll be here before you know it. Dr. Bob is here to talk about the upcoming flu season and what you can do to keep yourself healthy!
Hello everyone! Dr. Bob here to talk about the cold and flu season. Pretty soon the cold and flu season will be the only thing you're going to hear about. I want to chat with you about this topic so you can pick the best way for you to prevent getting a cold or the flu this season.
The biggest thing I want to impress upon you is that you need to research what your best options are. Don't just do what someone else tells you to do. Make sure that if you decide to put anything into your body that you know what it is and what the possible side effects are. There are two ways to approach this topic of combating the flu. The first is a medical approach which is a vaccine against the virus. The other options are more natural and don't include a vaccination.
Before we dive into these two options, I want to talk about the germ theory. The germ theory says, that is if you believe in this theory, that germs are what get you sick. As a chiropractor, I believe a little differently. I believe that it is your body's inability to fight those germs that make you sick. In this situation the medical world will look around and ask how are they going to kill these bugs, how are they going to get them out of your body, and how are they going to prevent them from getting there. The chiropractic approach is a little more holistic. We tend to focus on what can we do to help the body naturally boost its natural defenses against these germs. Building up the body's natural defenses helps it defend itself against viruses and bacteria.
So let's continue talking about the flu shot. Me personally, I am not a fan of it for a few reasons.
Those are the main two reasons why I don't personally get a flu shot. But you still need to prevent the flu from coming, so what do you do? There is a more holistic approach that I prefer to follow.
As a chiropractor, I believe in a holistic and natural approach to the cold and flu season over medications or vaccinations. If you have any other questions, please give us a call.
