Tis the season of colds and flu, and also my urgent care clinics in Texas and Arkansas have the patients to establish it. In actuality, for the past couple of months they’ve been inundated with people who have everything from respiratory viruses and sinus infections to influenza symptoms and colds. The scene is nothing new. This is the “busy season” from the urgent care industry, but you do not need to fall prey to cold and flu season.

The secrets

I found a couple of secrets long before I became a medical doctor who’ve helped me avoid getting ill, and I will share them with you. You have to create a Super Human Immune System because people are counting on you.

Over time I have developed some “tricks” to staying healthy. They’re easy to follow, and I highly recommend them if you need your own Super Human Immune System. Developing this is one of the most important things you can do for your body. It simply means you develop your body’s ability to fight off disease so once you do get ill (it is part of our human existence) you can get better much faster.

What to do?

There are a number of things you can begin doing today to come up with your own Super Human Immune System. They include:

Retrain Your Mind

Retrain your mind to not think in getting sick. It’s easy to think our surroundings makes us sick. The truth, however, is we’re all surrounded by the very same bacteria and viruses day in and day out. Yet some people are always sick, but others stay healthy.

Understand that disease might also be spelled dis-ease. When your immune system is in a condition of dis-ease from fatigue or stress, the exact same virus which was benign and helpless on your body suddenly has an chance to make you sick now. You need to train your brain to fight off disease. Develop an “I don’t get sick” mindset. Your attitude about health is the most important thing you can do to develop your own Super Human Immune System.

Practice Imaging

Imaging is the ability to imagine something so vividly that it becomes reality. While this might seem a little far out there, it’s truly a very common technique used by athletes. An Olympic athlete will often envision their event over and over until they understand it so perfectly that if they perform it, they believe they’ve done it 1,000 times.

You can apply this to your own health too. Imagine your recovery hormones cruising through your veins healing you and preventing illness. Should you get ill, imagine your white blood cells killing off any wayward bacteria.

Exercise

Exercise is a vital part of staying healthy. It gives an opportunity for your blood to actually flow. This then brings healing nutrients into the cells that need them most. Exercise also activates your lymph system to take the toxins from your cells and tissues and eliminate them. Exercise enables your body to become more powerful, which aides you in fighting off infection and disease. Remember the difference between self confidence and self doubt is physical fitness. If you’re healthy, you feel better about yourself and your life. Exercise gives your mind an opportunity to get out the stress of daily and concentrate only on the body.

Stop Smoking

If you smoke, it is time to stop! This is not news; you know it. Just put cigarettes away and produce a different habit. I know it is hard, but all you’ve got to do is make a choice. I’ve helped countless people quit, all because they made the choice to do so. Once you decide to stop, you’ll find a way to make it happen.

Cigarettes make you ill. They make you more prone to infection. They stop your body from healing, and they drain your bank accounts. Use any of them as reasons, or decide on a million other reasons, for the reason to stop. Having a reason can allow you to keep focused on your choice.

Have an Hour of Power

Everyone needs “me” time. Take 1 hour per day, and use it for you. During that hour you could exercise, journal, strategy, target set, read inspiring books or meditate. Just make sure you are doing things that you like

Don’t use the hour to reply e-mails, do chores or daily activities, make telephone calls, or engage in other “urgent” items that can create stress. Simply take 1 hour each day and make it about you. You’ll be amazed what this does to your inner peace.

Conclusion

There are other measures you can take to build your Super Human Immune System, but this is a beginning. Become healthier this season by implementing the measures above. Have a fantastic, healthy, happy lifestyle.
