How do you stay healthy in cold and flu season?
Call in sick everyday..
Former family practice and later, pedi office nurse here. Tough question. I know I was very sick
the first year of pedi office practice. The docs kept telling me to hand in there and it would
get better. It finally did, but not without being an outstanding patient first.
Take a vitamin supplement, eat healthy,not junk food. Drink plenty of fluids.
Get enough sleep. I took a clove of roasted garlic spread on a few crackers,
once per week. No clue if it was really effective (maybe kept patients from getting too close to
me LOL), but that home remedy seemed to help.
If you are brand new, seems you need to see how your immune system responds.
I had better luck at the family practice, did catch colds etc, but no where near the
intensity of the pedi practice.
Wishing you a good season...
