Flu outbreaks and stomach viruses are going around like crazy. Our family opts not to get the flu shot, so at the beginning of flu season I started doing a few things to help boost our immune systems. My one year old daughter had some sort of virus a couple weeks ago. I only knew she had it because she developed a rash on her stomach. She had a little bit of diarrhea, but she acted like her normal self and it never seemed to bother her much. So here’s what we’ve been doing (And remember, I am no doctor. These are just some things that have worked for my family):

Aside from taking these steps, it is also important to eat well. I make sure that we lots of veggies, protein, and healthy fats (i.e. avocado, coconut oil). I try to extremely limit our sugar and carb intake (except for veggie carbs) this time of year.
