KATY WEBER, PH+ CEO SHARES HER HACKS TO KEEP AWAY FROM THE FLU
Take a hot bath with dry brushing and magnesium chloride flakes - easiest way for it to absorb into the body. Make sure you use a brand that is free from chemicals, plastic or heavy metals. I like BetterYou, add 1 cup to your bath with essential oils such as Lavender, Rosemary, Vetiver, Myrrh, Sandlewood or Frankincense oil. Dry brushing is best done before your bath, as it opens your pores to promote sweating and to allow the essential oils to penetrate into the body. Similar affect as acupressure and acupuncture.
This is a great time for a little self-love, I like to use our CBD coconut body oil before I get into the bath. It is super hydrating and makes it easy to “Abhyanga” is Sanskrit for self-massage. This is a great way to get your lymphatic system moving, when you are sick our bodies can get a build up of toxins, this will help to flush toxins from your body. I like to start at my feet and work my way towards my heart, sometimes I will use a tool such as Gua Shau and massage my muscles with it, long strokes up your legs, arms and underneath your armpits, hitting all the lymph nodes in your body.
Make sure to drink plenty of water afterwards…

THE CLASSIC LEMON WATER
I like to drink warm lemon water (squeeze a whole lemon) with RAW honey (1 tbsp) and ginger in the am before my coffee (if you drink coffee).
Studies have found that honey has antimicrobial properties, this helps relieve your flu and cold symptoms.
