Skip the Flu on Typhoon Season
Drought days are officially over with the first downpour, which PAGASA officially calls, the beginning of the rainy season.
Welcome news as Angat dam is desperate for a refill as it reaches critical level thus threatening the water source of the entire Metro Manila.
But before we all perform our own rain dance, its important to remember that storm clouds don’t only carry water for a city, but acid, virus and bacteria along with it.
Because we live in an increasingly toxic environment, we have also created poison pre-cipitation, a reality we must all suffer until society is able to bring better balance be-tween urbanization and nature.
To arm yourself with natural vaccines against inevitable super-flus that’s viral, we suggest you:
Drink warming juice
Room temperature juices freshly masticated from superfoods like turmeric, ginger, ma-lunggay, bell pepper and oregano has anti viral properties and are warming to the body which naturally immunes us to any cold virus going around.

Cut sugar out
Processed sugar, yes even that Hot cocoa or cookie that uses white cane sugar or any none organic sweetener can shoot our immunity down to 50%. Its especially important to avoid junk sweets especially if it has dairy when people around you are sneezing and coughing so as not to weaken your immune system.

Get 8 hours of sleep
Even just 30 minutes of deprived sleep makes us vulnerable to infection. Make sure that you get enough rest during flu season because no amount of good diet, supplements, or vaccine will ever work on a body that is sleep deprived. To ensure quality sleep, moder-ate digital use which over stimulates the senses causing insomnia. Make sure to be away from blue light of phones, TV and computers two hours before bed time. Avoid eating a lot in the evening, as this will also cause restlessness as the body struggles to burn off the food energy consumed. Opt to have slow walks around nature to create a sense of calm, which is important as the brain shuts down for the day.
Very little is said about the healing powers of prayers and blessing. Science has already proven us as energy hosts, which means that we can redirect light in our body to be therapeutic. Take time to bless your food, feel grateful for being able to eat and be aware of the nourishing benefits that transmutes into your body as you treat it to a good meal. Like wise, avoid negative thinking while eating, this actually prevents your body from digesting and absorbing nutrients as it acidifies because it clamps us with the dis-tress signal making come into a fight or flight position.
