Winter Wellness with Dr. Keri Peterson


Winter is right around the corner and staying healthy in the chilly weather can be a challenge for both kids and adults. Add all the stress most of us are feeling over the economy and you’ve got the perfect recipe for catching colds and the flu. Don’t resign yourself to being rundown and vulnerable to getting sick. Dr. Keri Peterson shares her strategies on how to keep germs and virus at bay, boost the body’s immune system and eliminate stress from our everyday lives.

Dental care is an important part of your overall health. It’s recommended that you see your dentist twice a year, brush your teeth twice a day, floss and use the right toothpaste. Early teeth and gum damage can occur before we may know it even exists, so it’s important to use a toothpaste that not only freshens breath and whitens teeth, but one that also helps repair early damage to teeth and gums. Colgate Total Daily Repair Toothpaste contains a multi-active formula that proactively helps reverse gingivitis and remineralizes weakened enamel, strengthening your teeth even after you brush.

Nobody likes the sniffles so at the first sign of a cold you can rely on Cold-EEZE – it’s the #1 pharmacist recommended brand. The classic cherry lozenge is always a family favorite. Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy lozenges are clinically proven to shorten the duration of your cold by almost half. For a cold that’s a bit stronger with cold and flu symptoms like cough, chest congestion, and a sore throat, the Cold-EEZE Multi-Symptom QuickMelts have you covered. These have added active ingredients to fight your cold and are so easy to take and they dissolve quickly in your mouth without water. For those of you who can’t skate your allergies even in the winter, Cold EEZE has a Natural Allergy Relief as well. Natural active ingredients and premium natural herbal extracts help relive congestion, itchy eyes, runny nose, and stuffy nose. Get up to 12 hours extended relief for indoor and outdoor allergies.
