Carol Alt: Prevent Colds & Flu with a Better Diet
People think of cold and flu season lasting from October through February.

But, it's not like the virus is just hiding out from March to September. It's always present. So, then, why are people more susceptible to colds and flu during those months?

Carol Alt has a very good explanation, something that she learned from her doctor, Dr. Timothy Brantley. 

Think about what you're doing during those winter months... eating bad foods at holiday parties (comfort food too), trying to keep up with hectic schedules, stressing about the holidays.

You're also probably not getting as much exercise as the summer months because of the changes in weather.

When you're not eating properly and you're constantly stressed, of course your immune system is going to break down.

Listen in as Carol joins Naturally Savvy host, Andrea Donsky, to share ways you can keep your immunity up and stave off those colds and flu.
