Winter is such a beautiful season, but for many of us it’s often marred by sniffles, head colds, sore throats or full blow flu. With over 200 known common cold viruses, nobody can be completely sure of not catching a cold, but there are certain things each sign can do to help minimize the risk – and to feel better faster if you do find yourself ill.
As an earth sign, comfort is extremely important to you, so you suffer more than most when colds and flu get you down. Taurus rules the throat, so you’re especially vulnerable to strep throat and other nasties in that area. Probably the biggest change you could make to help avoid colds and flu is to exercise more. Yes, it’s cold and wet outside, but did you know that regular moderate exercise will boost your metabolism and increase the number of natural killer cells in your immune system. When you exercise, the level of these important cells rises, and stays risen for 36 hours – so keep moving, Taurus, to keep infections away.
