With school starting back and September almost here, cold and flu season is upon us. I know there are a lot of parents out there wary of the flu vaccines we have available today. While we all want to protect our families, sometimes we don’t know who to trust or what to believe when it comes to the safety and efficacy of flu vaccines and over the counter cold remedies. Since prevention is better than cure, why not explore natural ways to boost our immune systems and ward off viruses this cold and flu season? I love this article at BioVeda Wellness about preparing for flu season naturally. From eating fresh garlic, to getting enough sleep, to taking Vitamin D3, there are ideas in this article for every family.

If you are looking to expand your family, this article is worth a read.
