We are halfway through the current flu season and it appears that we are facing a bad flu season for seniors and the elderly. Federal officials have taken the unusual steps of releasing more flu medications and requesting that medications be made available as soon as symptoms present. The CDC shows that the flu virus is rampant from coast to coast except for Tennessee and Hawaii. For those of us in Naples, Sarasota and Miami as well as the rest of the country, we need to be taking precautions to keep ourselves healthy.  

Symptoms of the flu virus outbreak in Florida include Fever, feeling feverish, chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, and fatigue. If you experience symptoms it is important that you do not spread the virus. This means you need to stay home from work and keep kids out of school when symptoms present.  Skip unnecessary events that put others at risk.

The best thing you can do for your family is to keep everyone’s immune systems strong. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables that provide high levels of antioxidants and flavonoids is a great choice along with cold pressed chocolate that is a high antioxidant superfood. Protect yourselves by strengthening your immune system. Shop your local Naples Farmers Market or order Raw Cold Pressed Chocolate products to maintain a high level of antioxidants in your body.  I prefer to eat Naples XO Chocolate.   Order your healthy chocolate today and you will receive fast prompt shipping. When you receive your chocolate, make sure to eat at least 1 piece every morning, afternoon and evening to space out the antioxidants.
