Flu season is here, and I just woke up from the longest week of the year – I had the flu.
- runny eyes
- stuffy nose
- sore throat
- muscle aches
- extreme weakness and tiredness
- loss of appetite
I pretty much didn’t move for three days straight, the body aches I felt started in my hair particles all the way down to my toenails. The flu caught me unexpectedly and knocked me out. I’ll take it as a sign that maybe I wasn’t boosting my immune system as much as I should have been? I’ll learn from that mistake and give my body the supplements it needs for after the flu recovery.
Thank goodness for my husband who worked double time duty around her picking up my slack. One thing I know for sure is that when the flu hits everything you know, you should be doing goes right out the window. I mean, all I wanted was Advil and Tylenol on repeat and a hot pad on my aching body.
If you’re experiencing the flu symptoms, don’t try to be a superhero and head off to work – stay home, get plenty of sleep and give your body what it needs to fight the flu. Check out this link to Ontario.ca for flu facts if the flu hits your home. And hopefully these five supplements I’m using for after the flu recovery can help you.
