Tips for combatting sickness in Dubuque

Below, find some of the best tips for combatting sickness this fall and check out the video for even more!

  1. Build a healthy foundation by managing stress and diet. Make sure you’re “eating the rainbow” when it comes to fruits and vegetables, which are packed full of antioxidants and vitamins needed to beat the common cold and viruses.
  2. Choose a good multivitamin and probiotic. A multi-vitamin can help our bodies make up for any lacking nutrition, while a probiotic will ensure proper digestion and gut health. Bonus - even children can benefit from probiotics!
  3. Clean up your act, naturally. Judy recommends an environmentally friendly, plant-based cleaner called Essential Shield Cleaner. With this cleaner, you can wash everything from your driveway, baby, countertop to animals! It’s loaded with essential oils and kills bacteria and viruses all without the added harsh chemicals of other popular brands.
  4. Speaking of essential oils…they’re great to diffuse! Specifically, there’s a blend called “Essential Shield” designed to boost your immune system. It contains seven different oils with varying health benefits perfect for the fall season.
  5. Did somebody say mushrooms? A new product called “White Button Mushrooms” consists of a blend of six different types, ground to a powder form. A scoop can be easily added to your morning yogurt, smoothie and even soup. Don’t worry, there’s not much of a taste - just the bonus of added health value.
