The best way to stay healthy is not to use drugs but to have proper nutrition awareness!

Obviously you already know that the basics of fighting the flu are getting all the rest you can and drinking a bunch of fluids. Getting enough vitamin C is also important. Even though you might know how to stay healthy, when you get sick your major concern is getting better quickly. This need for quick relief is what sends so many people flocking to the pharmacy. These medications can sooth cold and flu symptoms fairly quickly. But what they can also do is simply stretch out your symptoms-too much medication can actually lengthen your illness! Why would you choose a longer cold with temporary spells of relief over a shorter cold with longer periods of relief?

Believe it or not, onions are great for your health! Combining onions with honey to make syrup is one popular method of curing a cold. Cut an onion up and then, after putting the pieces of the onion into a bowl and pour honey over them. You need to take time to mix both ingredients together and then let it sit still through the night. You should take a single spoonful of the onions and honey every three or four hours and after a few days the cold should go away. Adding some onions to your food every meal is another good idea-they blend in to the taste of just about everything. People have used ginger as a cure for the cold or flu for years. Ginger is a widely used ingredient for cooking and tea making. It certainly can’t hurt to increase your ginger intake if you start to feel like you’re getting a cold or coming down with the flu. It’s easier for you to heal when you’ve had some ginger. Drinking ginger tea regularly can help your immune system become strong enough to fight off any colds or flues that might try to take hold.

It’s important to eat healthy and things like proper vitamin d sources and vitamin b12 should always be in your diet.Strengthening your immune system through natural health practices is one of the best ways to keep from getting sick at all..Cut out the sugar. Eating sugar is bad for your immune system and it makes you more susceptible for illnesses. Lots of people say that, after they stop eating sugar, they start to feel a lot better. While many people opt for sugary drinks when they are sick because they like the taste, staying strong and drinking water instead is better for you. Natural health remedies are great but if eating sugary snacks and foods won’t let them do the job you want them to do.

To keep your illness from progressing and to prevent future sickness from occurring it is important that you learn the proper ways to treat your system naturally. Be practical and use the natural cold remedies you have on hand instead of spending money on chemicals that don’t really cure what ails you

Vitamin B12 benefits info

The most classic way to supply the body with Vitamin b12 is through injection. Right now, there are other ways to get vitamin b12 such as taking oral prescription drugs or taking nasal sprays but doctors still recommend that people with low levels of vitamin b12 be injected as often as needed.

People with pernicious anemia constantly need the vitamin b12 injection because their bodies have low absorption levels. Therefore, their bodies do not really get the nutrients that they need because they are deficient in vitamin b12. Right now, there have been cheaper ways formulated so that people can still get vitamin b12 minus the injection. You can also try to get it from a natural source which usually includes dairy products. This is especially important for vegetarians who most likely will suffer from vitamin b12 deficiency symptoms if they do not take injections or supplements.

Some oral supplementations contain Cobalamin that is known to cure some deficiencies in the body but then there are only small amounts that are present in multi vitamins and it cannot really be proven whether the small amount is enough to keep deficiencies at bay. Whereas taking the injections would give faster results.

The injections would be able to lessen the risk of having heart diseases and strokes and it has been proven that vitamin b12 can actually make the brain healthier by lessening the possibility that people will lose their memory as they grow older. The amount of people being deficient in vitamin b12 increases as they grow older. This is the reason why older people take supplements or get injected with vitamin b12.

It has been recommended that to maintain vitamin B12 status, the alternatives to high oral doses of Cobalamin which is about 500-1000 micrograms everyday are routine intramuscular injections at a dosage of 1 mg every month.

Vitamin b12 injections do not only lessen the possibility of having different diseases. It has also been proven that it can make the person become less stressed and feel relaxed because Cobalamin makes the body feel more energized and active.
