We're just at the beginning of cold and flu season, and when it comes to being prepared, knowledge is power...especially when it comes to your immune system!
One of the most proactive things you can do to fight off illness is boost your immune system.
To help prepare you and your family, Whole Foods Market has a three part podcast series on natural approaches to immune support during cold and flu season, running from now through the end of November http://blog.wholefoodsmarket.com/category/whole-body-podcast/
All of the essentials for protecting yourself are covered in the online series, including: understanding the immune system for winter wellness, homeopathy for cold and flu season, and a shopping list for ideas on natural products that support the immune system.
Here's a little bit more about each of the podcasts with links to listen:
