How to Prevent the Flu
The CDC advises that the best way to prevent the flu is by yearly vaccinations. However, since the flu vaccine isn’t one hundred percent effective, there are other ways to help keep you healthy. One of the best ways is to keep your hands clean—make sure to wash your hands intermittently throughout the day, after hand shakes, when traveling, and especially after using the restroom. Airborne viruses cause significant threat, so keeping the nasal passages clean is another important way to help guard yourself against the flu. Just like washing hands regularly is vital to maintaining good health, so too is regular nasal hygiene.
Using Xlear Nasal Spray will help keep your nose and sinus passages healthy, and can therefore help when you're sick. Xlear features the natural ingredient xylitol, which assists the body’s natural defenses to effectively wash the nose of contaminants. The nasal spray can also alleviate symptoms such as congestion.
Take extra care this flu season, and consider getting a flu shot. Keep up a constant routine of hand washing and nasal hygiene. And, most of all, make sure your kids and loved ones are well protected against the flu.
