As Flu Season Starts, Government Shutdown May Be Hazardous To Your Health
CDC won’t track flu outbreaks due to cuts — Time to build up your immune system and take preventative measures
VENICE, Fla., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – With the 2013-14 flu season about to start, shutting down the federal government may prove to be hazardous to your health.
Facing furloughs of up to two-thirds of its entire staff, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) won’t be able to monitor the spread of flu, as it usually does every year. While vaccines will be available, researchers won’t know if or where serious flu outbreaks are occurring.
October is the time preventative measures are crucial and most effective to build up your immune system to support healthy immune function. When it comes to avoiding exposure and supporting your body’s own immune processes, Dr. Gary Kracoff, a leading pharmacist and manager of the wellness center at the Johnson Compounding & Wellness Center, in Waltham, MA, suggests the following health-sparing NATURAL, EASY and IMPACTFUL techniques:
-- Proper nutrition -- A good night's sleep -- Frequent washing of hands -- Staying home when you are sick to help prevent the spread of illness -- Taking a therapeutic enzyme supplement high in proteolytic activity to assist the body in purification.*
“Our bodies naturally produce digestive and metabolic enzymes to aid in digestion and support healthy immune function,” Dr. Kracoff says.* “The proteolytic enzymes contained in ViraStop(TM) may provide assistance in breaking down undigested food protein, cellular debris and assist the body’s natural ability to break down toxins in the blood, thus sparing the immune system this task.”*
ViraStop(TM) contains an exclusive blend of proteases to assist the body in purification.* The immune system can then concentrate on optimal immune function. ViraStop is not an “immune stimulator,” rather a supporter of healthy immune function.* This formula contains a blend of eight proteolytic enzymes making it Enzymedica’s premier protease formula.
