Welcome to Living Fuel TV. This is KC Craichy.

It is cold and flu season, so you need to rush out and get your flu shot like you hear on the advertisements, right? Not exactly, there are better ways in fact, to handle this season. First of all cold and flu season why is there a season for cold and flu? Have you ever thought about that? One thing that has been very clear now, if you’ll just research it a little bit, you’ll find that in the winter months the farther you are away from the equator, the lower your blood levels of vitamin D are.

Now that goes for anytime of the year, the farther you are north the lower you are, because you have less sun exposure the farther you go north. In the wintertime, even the southern hemispheres start getting lower vitamin D3 levels. Vitamin D3 does so many things in the body, but it really is an immune modulator, so it helps your body not get the things that are floating around in the air.

Now a virus and bacteria are two different things, so we treat them differently. But oftentimes, people with viruses get antibiotics, and that leads to further secondary infection of the lungs, and even pneumonia, and some people take a flu shot and wonder why they got the cold. It’s completely unrelated. So there are so many things that you can do, but to clean up your diet to minimize sugars, because sugars will compromise your immunity, and in fact it can drop immunity as much as 50%, for several hours after you have a high sugar meal while tripling the inflammatory response in the body, so basically, you become a walking petri dish if you have bad nutrition.

So clean up the nutrition; get exercise, spend time in the sun, take about 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 a day during the winter months and have your vitamin D3 levels checked, when you get a blood test periodically, to see that your vitamin D3 levels or your vitamin D, 25-hydroxy-vitamin D levels are 50 to 70 versus what people were thinking before, as 40 and 30 and 20, which can be dangerous for other reasons, as well. This is an important tip that can keep you healthy through the cold and flu season.

God bless you, and have a great day.
