Everyone is talking about “the flu”! The big questions are “What can you do to avoid it? What are the symptoms? How do you know it is the flu? ” Coughing, Fever, Chills, Sore Throat, Muscle Aches, WOW! These same symptoms are indicated in a variety of illnesses. Are you confused too?
If you are like most people, when you get “sick” you hunker down, drink fluids, take over the counter medicines and get through it. Or if you are really sick you go to a clinic where they will take a saliva sample, send that to a lab which will run tests. You get the results back and probably find out that you have a strain of the seasonal flu, not the influenza- you breathe a sigh of relief. You then drive to the drug store, fill the prescription for a drug which will help you be more comfortable, While there you add a few other over the counter items which are advertised to help you feel better.
Did you know that when you have a viral infection, an antibiotic just won’t work? Antibiotics will kill bacteria which are outside the cells. Virus’s are INSIDE our cells! Cells are protected by a special cell membrane and antibiotics cannot cross that membrane to get into our cells to attack it. The cell wall protects the cellular integrity and won’t allow synthetic stuff to get there! God’s creation is perfect!!!
Back to helping you avoid the flu!! Help is truly out there for those who are students of natural health and prevention. Good hand washing protocol is a huge help in staying healthy! Soap and Water is a huge key to health.
“Nature was man’s first remedy. Everything we need can be found there.” doTERRA Latin for “Gift of the Earth” has helped us out.
The On Guard™ collection is my favorite doTERRA group for this season: Please check it out under the Products Tab above! On Guard™ is a proprietary blend of Oils some of which are Clove, Wild Orange, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. To me it smells a little like Christmas! Check out each of these oils to see what they can do and you will be absolutely IMPRESSED!
- The Sanitizing Mist is a nifty little hand sanitizer easy to throw in your bag to use when it’s impossible to get to soap and water. One little spray and you are on your way!
- The On Guard™ soft gels are my go to when I get to feeling that “icky something” coming on! Simply ingest one with a glass of water. One every 4 or 5 hours is my suggestion. For those little folks who can’t/won’t take a softgel or capsule try a beadlet with a glass of orange juice!
- A drop of the liquid On Guard™ added to your tea or a glass of water is a great flavor enhancer and putting a drop on the sole of your feet gets it into your whole body within 15 seconds!
- Foaming Hand Wash is a hit with our grandkids. It is a chemical free hand wash in a foaminess which kids love! Each 16 oz bottle has a 5 ml bottle of On Guard™ Oil Blend in it!

Enjoy this beautiful winter season in a healthy way- beat that “flu” bug and strengthen your inner YOU!
