Many people tend to catch seasonal flu and colds during the Thanksgiving holiday.  You can prevent this by adopting a healthy lifestyle before, during, and after this major holiday of the year.  The following are some recommendations:

1.    Avoid Overeating

One of the most common “misconducts” during the Thanksgiving holiday is overeating.  Abundance of food is very tempting.  Just remember the discomfort of overstuffing your stomach and go for moderation.  You can taste the food, instead of devouring a large amount of it.  Otherwise, when your stomach is full, you become sleepy and cannot enjoy the true spirit of Thanksgiving with your friends or relatives.

 2.    Stay on Yeast-Free Nutritional Program

Do your best to stick to the yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeast, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  I know you would be considered a “saint” if you could do this on the Thanksgiving holiday.  However, for your health and comfort, it’s worth making the effort.   To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

3.    Keep a Healthy Lifestyle Routine

Many people use the holiday as an excuse to interrupt their health routine especially regular exercise, meditation, etc.  The end result is that you may experience imbalance in your body, mind, and spirit.  Once the imbalance occurs, it may take a while to regain the balance.  If you could maintain your healthy life style routine, chances are you will have stronger immunity to protect yourself from seasonal flu and colds.

4.    Strengthen Your Immunity

Holiday activities can put more strain on your body.  My clients have reported that increasing the dosage of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea is very helpful in maintaining their immunity against the holiday stress.  Female Vitality or Male Vitality, and Herbal Cocktail are additional boosts for calm energy, mental clarity, and improvement of digestive function.

5.    Make It a True Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving holiday is not all that rosy for everyone.  If you have “unfinished business” with your family members, getting together on the Thanksgiving holiday can be an awkward time.   Why not use Thanksgiving Day as a special day to forgive and extend your genuine love?  There is always a silver lining in every life event.  There is always something to be thankful for with any one you encounter.  Give thanks to your “teachers”, both positive and negative.

If you could follow the above principles, you will enjoy a true Thanksgiving holiday!
