My Anti-Sickness Protocol

 

By: Emily Oberg

 

I try to avoid being sick at all costs, which isn’t always easy with the constant traveling and sometimes demanding schedule. To me, there's nothing worse than being sick in bed and not being able to carry on with your regular routine. But thanks to my anti-sickness protocol, I’ve come up with a full proof way to battle a cold before I even get it. This is the routine that I follow whenever I start to feel slightly under the weather. You can also follow it if you’re already sick, but the best thing to do is to try and avoid it in the first place, if you can.


For starters, I’ll take 3-4 liposomal vitamin C packs everyday. This is a potent version of your typical vitamin C supplement and I always prefer liposomal (liquid) vitamins to capsules as it’s easier/faster for your body to absorb and use. 


Then, I’ll take a double dosage of Nucleo Immune by Premier Research Labs. This is a blend of proprietary nucleotides which provide the basis for all cellular structure, including RNA and DNA. I also like a supplement called Wellness Formula which has things like astragalus, elderberry, echinacea and a long list of other ingredients that work to support your immune system.


When you’re sick, you need to sweat it out. I’ll do an hour long infrared sauna session everyday. If you can’t do infrared, a regular sauna is just as good. If you don’t have access to a sauna, a hot bath just before bed is also great. 


If I'm just feeling slightly off, I’ll still workout but opt for something low impact and calm like Pilates. If I’m already sick, I avoid working out completely. Your body needs to rest and recover and the less you do, the better. 


In terms of diet, I’ll eat warm foods that are easy to digest. I’ll make a big pot of chicken vegetable soup and eat it over a few days. Bone broth is also good to have either in the morning or at night. Steamed or baked vegetables are also a good option, and cooked fish as well. I make sure to eat a ton of vitamin C rich fruits like oranges, pineapple, blueberries and raspberries. I’ll avoid any refined sugars or desserts since I’m already having a lot of sugar by upping my fruit intake, and sugar is one of the worst things for your immune system. 


I also like to do a coffee enema anytime I feel a cold coming on because it completely flushes everything out of your system. I’ll do a post dedicated to enemas later on as I know they’re a controversial topic for some.


If you can’t do all of these things, try doing a few of them and see if you notice an improvement in your symptoms. As always, be sure to wash your hands, stay hydrated and eat fresh, whole foods as often as you can.

In other words, burnout is a very real issue, but may look different from person to person and require...
