Avoid Swine


Received a text from mummy yesterday morning about Swine is infecting The America. In another word, she’s got some agenda behind it. Haha…

But it’s not gonna change my mind.

Anyway, Swine Flu is crazy! Those people around infected area, please please take precautions and read up more on the articles on Swine Flu.


Here’s a tips on 13 ways to avoid Swine Flu i found from Owning Pink:


1. Wash your hands all the time! Before meal, after meal, before you go out, after you come back, before you study, after you study, before you cook, after you cook, before u dig your nose, after you dig your nose. Whatever it is, just wash before and after in whatever you do.


2. Give your immune system a boost by taking Echinacea. My favorite is Esberitox from Integrative Therapeutics.


3. Eat immune boosting foods, and steer clear of sugar. Here are five that can help you.


Loaded with Vitamin C, citrus fruits are a yummy, easy way to support your immune system. Grab a glass of OJ, or make some lemonade. Even better, mix lots of lemons into clean water with stevia (a natural sweetener) and cayenne pepper. Not only is it a zingy tasty treat filled with Vitamin C, it also alkalinizes your body, which helps it fight infection.


Red chili peppers (cayenne)
Cayenne pepper has long been appreciated for its medicinal properties and can help your body during states of emergency. So chili it up for good health!


Filled with immune-boosting mojo, garlic has been used to treat everything from the common cold to the Plague. So load up on garlic and give your body a fighting chance.


Bursting with beta-carotene, carrots give your body a leg up when you’re fighting infection. Drink a few carrot juices to get enough in your body. Sweet potatoes and spinach also contain lots of beta carotene, so eat up.


Fish like salmon, mackeral, and tuna are filled with omega-3 fats, which support white blood cells in fighting infection. Sushi anyone?


4. Sleep well!  Sleep is underrated. When you’re well rested, your body fights infection more effectively.


5. Give up alcohol and caffeine(i find this one HARD for me to do!!) for a while. Staying sober and decaffeinated helps your body mount immune responses.


6. Guzzle green juice instead. If you have a juicer stashed under your counter, now is the time to pull it out and load it with kale, celery, cucumber, swiss chard, lemon, spinach, ginger, garlic- whatever you’ve got around that can support your good health. Also, avoid processed foods and eat a whole foods diet.


7. Try not to drink after others, especially those who have recently traveled to Mexico.  And avoid sick people, if you can.


8. Hydrate. Drink, drink, drink pure clean water.


9. Try not to touch your nose, eyes, and mouth.


10. Take Vitamin C supplements.  If you take extra, it gets excreted in your urine, so it won’t hurt you to load up.


11. Supplement with probiotic bacteria, which alters the intestinal flora and helps your body resist infection.


12. Take Elderberry syrup: 1 tsp 3 times daily 


13. Please don’t go to Mexico this summer, or now! Not until Swine Flu is over.


Hope it’s not gonna be as serious as SARS, coz i am going to New Jersey soon and New York is just above New Jersey!
