This is all common sense. Not enough.

This is all common sense. Not enough.

A chosid should follow the instructions of the Rebbe. For health concerns, in particular how to prevent flu, a chosid should consult a PHYSICIAN. To my understanding all the famous physicians in Crown Heights, who were already respected and sought after even during the Rebbe’s terrestrial life time, ALL RECOMMEND VACCINATIONS AS THE BEST TOOL AGAINST FLU.
The tips this mommy give us eat well and exercise is very good but not enough. Now, to not to mention the opinion of the physicians is almost an insult to the readers.

sorry if it didnt help you… it should help most ppl. although of course you can go to the doctor and should visit as often as you need. taking preventative measures is always the BEST. also if you take the ‘common sense’ thing into action it will probably do you well… cheers to a healthy winter for all!

Thanks!

Vaccines are the best preventive measure. You can be as healthy as you want. You can still get the flu. This immune system boost is just a fad, a marketing hot word to sell the obvious idea that one needs to eat a balanced diet and exercise. But that is not enough. Go ask Dr Eli Rosen or Dr. Allan Plaut or any other prominent physicians in CH. They will tell you that. In fact, if you think you know more than them, why dont you go and arrange a time to lecture them? Teach them some medicine!!! You know… Read more »

Google it. It’s basically a vitamin you take but it’s not a pill. It really does help with flu and cold.

Still important to boost your immune system. A stronger body is less prone to illnesses.

#1 stress affects all humans

Everyone has stress in their lives, just the fact that you are a human… what people dont realize is that it can actually cause one to be physically ill. If you get it under control and manage it well, it will have less negative affects on your health.

You bring up good points. This article did not mention not to get the flu shot, but it doesn’t always work. These are additional measures to take.

But just get the flu shot and be absolutely certain that you will stay healthy this winter. Our lives are so busy in 2017, no need to go crazy with all these good ideas… get the shot and stop thinking about it.

How can you say that if you are a chossid you vaccinate? That’s quite absurd. Are there only 2 doctors that the entire Lubavitch should trust? Every doctor will tell you that the flu vaccine only protects against very specific stains of flu and the medical world has no way to know which stains will appear each year. Therefore, may I suggest, that if you are a chossid, vnishmarten es nafshoseichem” would mean doing what you can to stay healthy. I actually learned a loor from the above and hope I can implement it and stay healthy.

I Just checked out your Insta, would you share your doughnut recipe for your out of town readers? I always try to eat well one Chanukah but get lost somewhere between the plaster of latkes and doughnuts.

Every doctor will tell you that shots and medication are not enough.
If you want to live well/ thrive you need to take care of yourself. If you have an expensive car would you use the cheapest gas? You need to fuel your body properly and that means getting the right nutrients/vitamins/minerals

I expected a bunch of narishkeit. Apologies. Perfect advise and right on target. I do all these things and flu and pneumonia vaccine and get one mild cold a year. Good genes also a benefit. Thanks for a normal practical article
Make it a criminal offense not to vaccinate children. Please no response.

B”H We all know somebody who crossed the street and was hit by a car, it should never happen again! Does that mean never cross the street?!?!? Yes, the 5 tips can be helpful. However, The Rebbe himself said to consult a medical doctor. Let’s listen to The Rebbe!!!!!!!!! If somebody got the flu or had a reaction to a vaccine, that does NOT mean that people should stop being vaccinated!!!!! Do the people who are against vaccines ever cross the street? Do they tell people they may care about or even the community at large never to cross the… Read more »
