Breathe. Believe. Receive.

Some of you more familiar with the Harmony family will observe a striking resemblance between the gentleman pictured above and yours truly. If you are so astute, give yourself a pat on the back, that’s my dad! A few days ago, when nearly half of Los Angeles fell ill from the circulating cough & colds, it was my mom sitting in this very same chair receiving a treatment to cure her upper respiratory symptoms. On a Friday night after a busy work week, we hooked her up to a bag of #Immunity.. Three days later, she was back at work feeling 100%. In fact, my dad claims she was better within 24 hours.  It would have to be something THAT dramatic to make a believer out of my dad, “Mr. Conservative,” so much so that he would call and ask for a treatment himself.

Enter The IVy by HHMD and their signature treatments to make @younow your #bestyounow. Thanks to the Immunity infusion, many are realizing that they don’t have to be confined to the antiquated customs and beliefs of yesterday that still rule the day--take some Nyquil and get over it OR antibiotics for everything. In today’s world, we don’t have time to dawdle in the misery of symptoms (i.e, sore throat, nasal congestion, watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose, productive cough, miserable existence, etc) for weeks OR months at a time. DING! Did you hear that? It was an email from your immune system begging for help!

So, what can we do about these bugs wreaking havoc all over the place? Everyone knows Vitamin C is good to fight colds, and they start taking 1000 mg three times daily when ill. And Zinc has become another staple of common cold treatment. But why aim for mediocre when there are many more advanced options available? The Immunity infusion combines 12 vitamins and minerals known to enhance your body’s natural fighting ability. Viracid capsules taken like M&M’s keep the recovery going and provide a sustained boost to our own immunity and Garlinase rounds the trifecta by destroying viruses and bacteria naturally. THAT, is how you fight illness effectively and get back on your feet #harder #faster #stronger.

This winter, take a lesson from Norman Vincent Peale, the American Minister and positivist who said, “Change your thoughts and you change your world.” Believe, like my dad did, in the ability to heal faster. Then put your beliefs to good use--whether this means visiting The IVy by HHMD as soon as you catch a glimpse of a cold or ascribe to another healing center or routine. Just know that you DON’T have to be sick for much more than one week. If you have heard otherwise before, give yourself an opportunity to break away from that fabled fiction. #manythanks #muchlove #hhmd4life
