This is seriously the season for colds; and stuffy noses. Colds that commonly escalade into the dreaded flu. There are vaccinations that we can all receive to prevent the flu. But like most viruses the flu has the capability to mutate and beat the vaccination that’s at hand. We have seen or experienced this through ourselves; loved ones or we have seen it on our local news channel. Schools shutting down weeks at a time because of illness; in hopes of letting the virus run its course without claiming its next victim. To stop the spread from child to child and house hold to household. It’s an annual epidemic we all face every single year. Even though we are faithful to our vaccinations it would still be nice to have a bodily defense that will keep our bodies from turning into a battle ground of cellular destruction.

To do this, we would have to eliminate stressed situations or at least keep it to a minimum. To do this one must understand that stress is physical; mental; and emotional and we have to defend all three to eliminate the: stressed” effects on the body. To reduce stress in all three spectrums could be something as simple as how we treat ourselves. Something as simple as an hour or two at the “local spa” could put a deep impact on the “stress relief” module. A simple facial using beneficial products such as peppermint or spearmint could really relieve the abundance of stress and energize the body inside and out. This treatment could be physically soothing; mentally...
