If you are sick, you can’t work. If you can’t work, you don’t get paid. At least, that is true for most security professionals. Prevention is the operative word here, and there are a couple of ways you can prevent catching your run-of-the-mill colds and flu’s that float around.
- Strengthen your immune system by interacting with others, getting sufficient sleep, eating healthy foods, and sufficiently hydrating.
- Ensure you are getting the following elements in your diet and if not, then supplement with vitamins C, E, A, and D, folic acid, Iron, Selenium, and Zinc.
- Use Oregano Oil, especially when you feel run down or like you may be getting a cold or flu.
Oil of Oregano is an aromatic herb extract that has a suggested use as an anti-microbial and anti-bacterial agent. It may be helpful for respiratory conditions, colds, gastrointestinal issues, muscle aches, rheumatoid arthritis, and toothaches.
Oil of oregano is manufactured by distilling the oil from the plants. The strains Origanum Vulgare and Thymus capitatus are suggested to have the most beneficial properties for medicinal use (check your labels before you buy).
Oil of Oregano is an extract you can purchase in liquid or capsule form. The taste is strong and unpleasant, but if you put half a quarter ounce of water in a shot glass, add the oil drops into the water, then shoot it down quickly into the back of your throat, you miss most of the bad taste.
It is not suggested for daily use, but if you are starting to feel unwell, it has proven to be very effective at preventing illness from fully developing.
It’s a natural remedy with a strong following and something you may want to consider having on hand.
I recommend you do your research and then decide if Oregano Oil is a good choice for you. Always consult your medical care provider if you have any allergies or take any medications.
