Avoiding the Flu Without Vaccination
Fertility patients need to be extra careful during flu season to ensure treatment success.
However, during a flu vaccination shortage like this year, there is no reason to panic. Being in good health is the best defense against the flu. Your immune system stays strong with a well-balanced, healthy diet, enough sleep at night and an overall low stress level in your life. Drs. Kettel and Hummel also recommend washing your hands more often. Supplements like echinacea and St. John’s Worth are to be avoided. Studies showed that visiting the sauna once a week will also enhance your body’s defense system.
