But there is an important warning that Neti Pot users need to know. Don’t use tap water in your Neti Pot. Use warm, purified water in your Neti Pot.

I recently read a news story that found at least two deaths caused by amoebas in tap water that entered people’s brains through Neti Pot usage. Make sure you’re not shooting untreated tap water up your nose.

Mushrooms

Mushrooms have a mineral called Selenium, which prevents illness. I love mushrooms and you can use them in many different meals.

Watermelon

Watermelon contains the antioxidant Glutathione. Dr. Jim said you don’t want chunks. Instead, eat watermelon slices, because most of the antioxidants are found near the rind.

Take a normal hot shower. When you’re done washing off, slowly turn the water temperature down to cold. This helps your body increase circulation and boost the infection-fighting white blood cells.

Vitamin D

Watermelon isn’t always in season. Milk contains Vitamin D, which can help make any flu symptoms less severe. You can also get Vitamin D from natural sunlight. Read more about Benefits And Sources Of Vitamin D.

    I can’t believe that a MD would state that there “is no science that proves it is effective! Just ast your computer any question ;ie, Vit C’s positive effect on stress or inflammation or upper respiratory infection or pain or etc, etc…many reserach studies will show up. These numerous studies are usually not readily available because Vit C heals. Collogen is Vit C and collogen is our intercelluar glue. It is very underrated. Please, look into this if nothing else but for yourself because it is used to treat cancer…with incredible results!!!
