Staying Healthy During the Holidays

family-in-snow-581903f83df78cc2e8ef5ecdThe holiday season truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year—but it’s also a season often characterized by illness. The changing weather and increased amount of time indoors seems to create a hotbed for various viruses to breed. However, with these few tips from our pharmacists at The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills, you can avoid some of the seasonal illnesses and stay focused on staying merry and bright.

1. WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY.

One of the first pieces of advice you’ll hear from any health professional is to keep your hands clean. Wash them regularly with soap and warm water, especially after you’ve been out in public or come in contact with someone who is ill. Be sure to wash your hands for at least 20-30 seconds to ensure that you’ve cleaned them thoroughly. If you don’t have access to running water, you can also carry hand sanitizer with you and use it periodically.

2. STAY HOME IF YOU’RE ILL.

If you’ve come down with a cold or flu, stay home and try to rest. Not only will this help your body recover, but it will also help prevent spreading the illness further.

3. GET YOUR REST.

When you get run down from lack of sleep, your body may have a more difficult time fighting off illness. Keep your immune system at its best by getting a full night’s sleep.

4. EAT HEALTHY.

Often, the battle against the seasonal cold and flu is best fought by treating your body well and eating healthy. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables daily, and try to stay away from anything high in sugar.

5. TAKE MEDICINES AS PRESCRIBED.

When your physician prescribes medication for an illness, it’s important to fill that prescription and take it as directed. If you have questions about the medicine, you can always ask our pharmacists who will be glad to help you out.

At The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills, we hope you’ll avoid illness this holiday season so you can go about the business of enjoying your friends, family, and festivities. However, if you do fall ill, you can rely on us for all your compounding pharmacy needs. Contact us today to learn more.
