  • Have an immune boosting kit on hand that contains vitamin C, oscillococcinum (a homeopathic remedy that reduces flu like symptoms) and natural hand sanitizer.
  • Eat garlic. Garlic boasts a powerful anti-viral and anti-bacterial effect.
  • Avoid added sugars. White refined sugars will dampen your immune system capacity which tends to be lower in the winter months. Opt for naturally sweet foods and spices instead.
  • Eat mushrooms in a soup or salad. Mushrooms (shitaki and oyster) are loaded with powerful anti-oxidants to offer immune system protection.
  • Keep your gut healthy by eating probiotic rich foods such as yogurt and supplementing with a probiotic supplement daily.


Live Long and Die Short: A Guide to Authentic Health and Successful Aging By Roger Landry, MD.

Research shows that 70 percent of physical aging, and about 50 percent of mental aging, is determined by lifestyle. That means that if we optimize our lifestyles, we can live longer and "die shorter". In Live Long, Die Short, Roger Landry lays out a path for anyone, at any point in life, who wants to achieve authentic health and empower themselves to age in a better way.

Writing in a friendly, conversational tone, Dr. Landry encourages you to take a "Lifestyle Inventory" to assess where your health stands now and then leads you through his "Ten Tips," for successful aging. Each tip is backed by the latest research, real-life stories, and the insights Landry?a former Air Force surgeon and current preventive medicine physician?has gained in his years of experience. The result is a guide that will reshape your conception of what it means to grow old and equip you with the tools you need to lead a long, healthy, happy life.
