First, I want to apologize to our subscribers for not publishing a newsletter for a few months due to personal challenges. . . We are back on track and will post monthly.

At the health food store where I work, my customers and co-workers are getting sick all around me.

Since cold and flu season is in full swing, our feature article focuses on some simple yet effective ways to prevent seasonal illness.

The underlying cause of almost all illnesses and disease conditions in the body is acute or chronic stress.

In the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it is easy to get run down and overly stressed. I know it is kind of pointless to encourage people to slow down this month. Thus, believe it or not, the next best thing is to drink more water.

According to M.J. Pangman, water expert and author of the book Hexagonal Water: The Ultimate Solution, dehydration is the number one cause of stress in the human body.

To learn more about how drinking more water daily can help alleviate stress in the body, you might want to check out our article below “Dehydration and Stress.”

Last but not least, I hope you will consider giving the gift of clean water to yourself or others by investing in a drinking water filter or a whole house water system. (See our water filter reviews listed below.)

Wishing you and your loved ones the gift of health and a joyful holiday season!

Diet and Immunity

First it is helpful to understand the role of diet. People tend to get more colds and flu during the winter months when our diets are naturally heavier.

In addition, over consumption of animal-based foods, especially dairy, usually promotes excess production of mucous in the respiratory tract, which also fosters the growth of bacteria and viruses.

Sugar and alcohol intake often increases during the colder months, which also decreases immune function.
