Coughing, sneezing, and evil germs seem to be all around you this season. Unfortunately, you can’t do much about it except take preventative measures for yourself as much as possible.  Washing your hands, using hand sanitizer, and cleaning your surroundings are one thing, but strengthening your immune system from the inside out can really save you some sick days that should be used for beach days 🙂
