Let's talk prevention

You’re being careful about washing your hands and keeping sanitizer handy, but did you know that there are supplements that will help prime your immune system, to be ready to react if you come in contact with a opportunistic virus? Being proactive about your health can make a big difference in the amount of sick days you need to take, and if you do get sick, you’ll be more likely to bounce back faster. You probably have some Vitamin C in your medicine cabinet, but how about these essentials:

Genestra - Probiotics

What if it's 'too late'?!

You had the best intentions, but maybe you missed the boat on the prevention front. Don’t worry!

Keep clean, but 'Go Green'

Washing carefully with natural soap and water is the best place to start when it comes to stopping the spread of pathogens, but if you find yourself in need of disinfecting cleansers, consider switching to a product with essential oils. There are many essential oils with antiseptic properties: thyme, oregano, rosemary, eucalyptus, and tea tree to name a few. Hydrogen peroxide is an excellent antiseptic active for surface cleaning as well.
