Winter is officially here, and it’s actually starting to feel like it here in Hampton Roads area of Virginia where I live. This morning, the temperatures were at 11 degrees. I can’t even comprehend it. The new year brings us to the height of the cold and flu season. But what can you do to prevent colds and the flu? And what should you do if you already have the sniffles?
Thanks to the brands Clorox, Aveeno, and Myrtol 300, I had the opportunity to get some winter wellness tips for practicing physician and TV host Dr. Yael Varnado – also known as Dr. V. As a trusted health and lifestyle expert, Dr. V has garnered the respect of her peers, patients, and the public with her blend of passion-driven clinical knowledge and compassion. She has a passion for prevention especially for young adults, a focus on women’s health, and is known for her ability to deliver relatable, usable and relevant information.
