Did you know that vitamin D can protect you from acute respiratory track infections; like the common cold? An article I read said a test was performed on 11,000 people with respiratory infections. They were given oral vitamin d3 and their baseline vitamin D levels were recorded. Research discovered that vitamin D supplementation reduced the risk of respiratory track infections. The amount of vitamin D given was around 880 IU to 5,000 IU.
Below are five ways to prevent & treat respiratory track infections.
1. Saline & Salt
2. Using a humidifier at bedtime to keep the dyer air moist and using steam showers can increase moisture in your nasal passages.
3. Aromatherapy – is great for opening up the sinus passages. Trying adding, lavender, pine, Orange, frankinsence, Tea Tree, Clove and even Eucalyptus to baths.
4. The right nutrition can certainly help prevent sinus and upper respiratory mucus from developing into a full blown inflammatory infection. Try removing dairy from the diet, which can reduce infections and mucus disruptions. Most importantly, your immune system will love your for it. Add more bone broths, vegetables, turmeric, ginger and garlic.
5. Homeopathy is amazing to use if you have a respiratory track infection. Homeopathy works similar to over the counter medications and antibiotics.
