How you can prevent getting the flu

Coach Edling's Football team fall 2009

Here is my football team

Building your self up naturally is not only the healthiest way to potentially stay healthy and not get the flu or swine flu but is the safest and most cost effective way. 

Here is what I do, and reccomend to others. 

1.  Stay hydrated.  Most people are dehydrated, start drinking lots of water.  Pee until it’s clear.

2.  Regular exercise.  I’m off for a roller ski right after I post this.   Exercise activates your nervous system and helps your immune system stay strong. 

3.  Vitamin D.  Add 5000 I.U. daily and 4x that if your feeling like you may be getting something.  I’ve done this for years.  Most people are deficient in Vitamin D.  Especially those who don;t get sunlight.

4.  Get adjusted.  I can’t tell you how many times patients say to me that since htey have been getting regular adjustments they don;t get sick as much.  It seems like Chiro patients have an unfair advantage over others which is proven in research that oxidative stress levels are lower in adjusted people over those that aren’t by 200%.  That’s another reason why I reccomend weekly adjustments to once a month dpeending on each person.

5.  Many natural remedies such as onions, garlic, olive leaf extract, goldneseal, echineachea, and many others are great for you.

6.  Cut SUGAR!!!  This is huge.  Not justt table sugar but all forms of simple sugars.   Go to and download the guidelines for an anti-inflammatory diet. 

7.  Zero junk food.

8.  Count your blessings.

9.  Stay positive

10.  Don’t live in fear of catching something, but rather how can I be healthier through how I live and think. 

Just add one of these to start and you are on your way to building your immune system up and become dis-ease proof!

Also, good hygiene is important.

Oh, by the way, did you ever think why we  have the flu now and not in July?  I await your answer.   Have a safe Halloween!!  Dr. E

  • Great recommendations Dr. Edling, totally agree. Loved the one about not living in fear of getting something. If you think you have an itch, you’ll start itching! Focus on the cause and prevention and your body will feel and function much better. Keep rollerskiing big boy, looking forward to Birkie!

    Tis the season to count your blessing for all that goes on in our fast pace world we live in.  I hunted this opener for the first time in 8 years.  I passed up 3 small bucks and saw about 20 does before 10 am.  Thanks to Tin Skiba for letting me hunt on his property.  It sure was nippy out there

  • Nutrition that really works

    Wow, what a fantastic seminar I was at this weekend down in the cities. It was on energy medicine which is something completely new to me. It was given by premier research labs out of Austin Texas and I was very impressed by how much new proven and tested healing techniques I learned about healing
  • You are guided by your mind

    This is the time of year I start knocking off some great roller ski workouts because I know if I do the work now it will pay off in February and March when I do my ski races. Now sometimes I don't feel like training especially when it's raining and just ugly outside. I have to sell myself into
