Cold & Flu Prevention and Treatment

Cold & Flu Prevention And Treatment

In any given day, you are exposing yourself to a multitude of pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and fungus as you interface with other people in the workplace, at school, through public transportation, and even with other family members. This is simply a natural part of living in the world, to which a healthy body can easily adjust and compensate.


Because the cold and flu virus is passed around from person to person the only way to really prevent them totally is to become a hermit. The more people that you come into contact with the better your chances are of catching the virus. If there is a lot of cold and flu sickness going around here are some ways you can help reduce your chances of catching them:

  • Flu Shots

    Get a flu shot every year. Your family doctor will give you more information about flu shots such as when to get them and if he/she recommends for you to get it.

  • Getting Your Rest

    One of the overlooked reasons for catching a flu or cold is the lack of rest and sleep. Inadequate rest and sleep can cause the breakdown of your immune system making you more vulnerable to the cold and flu viruses.

  • Washing Your Hands

    Washing your hands on a regular basis will help out alot. This is because most of the time you catch the virus by touching someone that has it and then rubbing your eyes, nose, or mouth. You can also catch the virus if someone near you who has is it sneezes or coughs and you breathe it in... not really much you can do about that.

  • Avoid Sudden Temperature Changes

    Keeping warm and avoiding sudden temperature changes such as being in a warm home and going into the cold outdoors will help prevent the virus. Always wear warm clothing when moving from a warm place to a cold place as this will increase your resistance to these viruses.

  • Quit Smoking

    If you smoke then quit. Smokers aren't more vulnerable, but when they catch a cold or flu virus the symptoms are much worse than they are non-smokers. Kicking the habbit is not easy but will be well worth it when it comes to your health. There are many products that can assist you in breaking the habit such as Stop-It Smoking Kit and products like Smokeshield that can protect your lungs from smoke and other pollutants.

  • Keep Your Immune Systems Strong

    Keeping a strong immune system is very important to preventing the cold and flu virus. Your immune system is what fights off the viruses and keep you healthy and feeling good.

  • Being Prepared

    One of the best defenses against the cold and flu is to be prepared for it in the even that you or a family member catches it. Having cold and flu treatment products in your home ahead of time is much better than rushing out to the 24 hour convenience store at 3 a.m. trying to find something to comfort yourself or a family member.

  • Treatment

    Just because there is no guarantee that you will not catch a cold or flu virus, that doesn't mean that you can't treat it. Here are some treatments that you can use to make someone with the virus more comfortable:

  • Rest in bed and stay warm. Avoid any physical exertion as much as possible.  

  • Drink plenty of fluids such as water, juice, and clear soups. Stay away from alcoholic beverages.

  • Take plenty of Vitamin C.

  • If you are a smoker then avoid smoking and the smoke from other people.

  • Find more information about the cold and flu viruses along with prevention and treatment products at eVitamins.

    Promote a Healthy Lifestyle with Vitalicious

    Vitalicious Natural Muffins-100 Delicious Calories

    Vitalicious® Inc. is the market leader of innovative "vital and delicious" baked goods that promote a healthy lifestyle, without sacrificing taste. First to market with 100-calorie servings, Vitalicious® is leading the way to a holistic approach to maximize satisfaction with minimum calories, with products that are low fat and high in fiber and nutrients. Vitalicious® has created a unique triangle of need-satisfaction (All-Natural ingredients + Nutraceuticals + Weight Management), the only baked-goods company in this niche. Founded in 1999, Vitalicious® creates and sells a variety of unique, healthy, value-added baked goods under the VitaMuffin™, VitaTop™, VitaBrownie™, VitaCake™, and VitaMuffin Mix™ trademarks. Vitalicious® products are now sold at stores nationwide and at ( for Canadian Residents). Here at Vitalicious® our mission is simple: to make healthy and delicious baked goods that are fortified with essential vitamins and minerals. Vitalicious: Better-For-You 100 Calorie Baked Goods

    What are Nutraceuticals?
    Nutraceuticals are foods that are enriched with the kinds of vitamins and minerals that are important for maintaining health and preventing illness. In the last few years, the number of Americans who are grabbing breakfast on the run or eating it at their desk is surging. So, there is a need for healthy, vitamin-fortified baked goods that you can eat quickly, but still get 100% of essential vitamins and minerals every morning -- while enjoying a delicious, oven-baked breakfast on-the-go. Each and every Vitalicious® baked good has been created to bring you the most nutritional benefits possible. Essential vitamins and minerals have been specifically chosen to help performance throughout the day, and to build strength and wellness in the future as well. We've developed four different VitaMuffins™, and much more is on the way. Our long term mission is to create baked goods that are healthy in many more ways than just being vitamin-enriched -- that provide high fiber and low calories, without any fat, as well as crucial poly-unsaturated fatty acids (known as "good fat") and protein.

    Can You Find The Free Secret VitaTop Sample

    Why Vitamins?
    As you know, lots of breakfast cereals are fortified with important vitamins and minerals. That's because doctors and nutritionists know that getting 100% of your recommended daily requirements of essential vitamins and minerals is key to staying strong and healthy. But many people today simply don't have the time for a sit-down meal in the morning... That's why every variety of VitaMuffin is fortified with as many as 15 of the crucial vitamins and minerals you need, including folic acid, niacin, iron, calcium, vitamins A, B, C, E and more! In fact, you'll notice something on every VitaMuffin package you don't normally associate with tasty baked goods: a nutritional information chart. That's because 4 oz. serving of VitaMuffins are USDA certified to have 100% of the recommended daily adult requirements of many of the most important vitamins and minerals.

    Fine, But How Do They Taste?
    In a word, scrumptious! Years of research into vitamins and baked goods, not to mention our 70 years of baking experience, have come together to create a line of fat-free baked goods that are exceptionally hearty and delicious.
    Love the taste- lose the waist

    SkinCareRx "Clincially Active Skin Care" was created with the intention of making dermatologist and spa-grade, clinically active skin care more accessible. Each line we carry is carefully evaluated for effectiveness and is personally tested by our estheticians and staff -- after all, we would never recommend something we wouldn't use ourselves.

    Founded in 1999, SkinCareRx brings together the experience and knowledge of world-renowned dermatologist and cosmetic laser surgeon Dr. Mark B. Taylor with the design and marketing expertise of Kristy Taylor and business administration skills of Chris Taylor.

    SkinBotanica.comOur goal was to create an informative, easy-to-navigate site that made it possible for anyone to assemble a customized skin care routine based on individual skin care concerns and skin types. And, for those that are still overwhelmed and don't know where to start, we wanted to have informed, well-trained estheticians on staff to answer their questions and guide them in their quest for perfect skin.

    We've always made a conscious effort to provide top-notch, personalized customer service as well as speedy delivery.

    Through the years, we believe we have been consistent with our desire to meet these goals, and, as a result, we have grown exponentially. We have come a long way from the two-man operation in the back corner of Dr. Taylor's dermatology practice and we have our loyal customers and dedicated employees to thank for it. (Free Shipping)
