Of course washing your hands is very important, but we need to make our bodies strong rather than worrying about all the germs that are out there. Actually, germs are our friends—they help to make our bodies stronger, more able to fight the next infection out there. But no one wants to get sick, so here is a simple suggestion.
Go to the health food store and buy some Oscillococcinum. Open one vial and pour about 5-10 pellets (they are really small so pour carefully) in a glass jar with 4 ounces of water in it. Cap the jar and shake vigorously until pellets are dissolved. Now give one teaspoon of the water with the dissolved pellets to everyone in your family on a weekly basis.
Of course, try to avoid sugar, eat your vegetables and smile!
