Health.com: 20 Surprising Ways to Prevent Colds and Flu

12 of 22

Start Juicing

"As a paramedic, I never know what germs I'll be encountering. So I drink water constantly to flush toxins out through the lymph system. During cold and flu season, my EMT partner and I start our day by making and drinking juice. We'll use kale, broccoli, apple, arugula, parsley, cucumber, carrots, Swiss chard, lemon and mint. Since I don't get my recommended nine servings of whole fruits and vegetables every day (who does?), juicing allows me to drink that amount in concentrated form."
—Kristina Economou, a paramedic in Monterey, Calif.
