Don't Let Illness Interrupt Holiday Travel Plans; Help Prevent Colds Naturally Using ALKALOL Nasal Wash

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2010) - With the holiday travel season fast approaching, it's time to start seriously thinking about cough, cold and flu prevention. In a recent consumer poll, 41 percent of holiday travelers believed that travel increases their chance of getting sick and over 25 percent of consumers have had interruptions in holiday travel due to illness.

During the flu season if a cold comes on, one easy way to naturally combat it is with nasal irrigation such as Alkalol Nasal Wash.

"I need to fly frequently for work and I used to get horrible head colds which turned into sinus infections every 2-3 trips. My pharmacist recommended I try Alkalol to treat my sinus infection and to prevent new ones. I now use it daily when I am travelling and I hardly ever get sick. Alkalol is a miracle product," -- Josh.

Alkalol is a preservative-free, hypertonic saline solution that can be used with a nasal wash cup or a neti pot and contains a blend of natural extracts and essential oils, which help dissolve mucus in the nasal passages, sweep away bacteria and moisturize nasal passages. Unlike other nasal saline solutions, Alkalol is a specially formulated, soothing antiseptic wash that has been recommended by ENT physicians for more than a century. Alkalol does not require a prescription and is available in drugstore and retail pharmacies around the country.

Along with Alkalol nasal wash, there are many easy natural preventions that can help fight off coughs, colds and even flu. 

  • Hormones are released during sleep that help your body naturally boost the immune system so get plenty of sleep -- at least seven hours of sleep each night.
  • Vitamin D and Zinc are nutrients that naturally boost the immune system. Make sure to consume foods rich in Vitamin D such as fish and milk and foods rich in Zinc such as oysters and bran cereal.
  • Moderate daily exercise is also key to staying healthy.
