The changing of the seasons and the holidays bring fun times and activities into our lives, but also mark the beginning of a health concern: Flu season.

Flu season starts in the late Fall and runs through early Spring in some cases, so you want to be armed against this epidemic by doing several things to ensure your health stays at its optimal level. HAND WASHING is a primary deterrent against the flu. Taking vitamin supplements and getting extra rest during the holiday season also helps. Preventative maintenance also includes a preventative flu shot. Many employers and health care clinics offer them at no or little charge. For children especially, they even have a flu mist, so that the needle can be avoided.

Some simple things you can do in your house to prevent flu from spreading is use a bleach water mixture and spray countertops, doorknob handles, light switches, phones, and steering wheels of your car.

Influenza A is the most typical culprit in our fight to stay healthy, so when the outbreak in your area occurs, be ready. If you are in a career that requires close contact with people, a mask and sometimes rubber gloves can help protect you. If you, yourself, are feeling “under the weather” with fever, lethargy, chills, sore throat, or the like be sure and STAY HOME. You should get plenty of rest and stay home from work or school to insure you don’t pass the bug onto others.

There is a type of flu that affects the eyes called adenovirus. It can give you symptoms such as redness, watery, irritated eyes and blurred vision. Be sure and keep your immune system up with plenty of fluids, rest, vitamins, and exercise as well as eating healthy foods during the winter months to avoid, the flu, “achoo“, so you can take care of YOU!
