Pass these flu tips, not the #flu Get better LA! One person at a time

If you heard the Ellen K: Q&A yesterday, you heard the best way to avoid a cold naturally is to eat lots of SALMON! Salmon, herring, and mackerel are very high in omega-3 fatty acids, which protect lungs from respiratory infections and colds. Also, a home remedy that was shared with us is if you mash up an ibuprofen and put it in a glass of warm water, you can gargle that and it helps relieve inflammation in your throat.

We also got a call from one of our listeners who’s a nurse and she gave us some pretty awesome info to save the world & pass on:

1) Stay home if you’re sick!

2) Wash your hands… a lot! Use hand sanitizer in between.

3) Cough into your elbow. If it looks like you’re doing the DAB, you’re doing it right! If your kids haven’t showed you yet, a dab looks like this:

4) Build your immune system! Sleep & eat well.

5) Once you’ve kicked the flu to the curb, wash your sheets and change your toothbrush.

6) If you wear eye contacts, change your contacts.

God bless this sweet little guy❤️🙏🏼😇 Isn’t this precious? He had no idea he was being recorded. He just picked up the guitar and sang.

This 4-year-old boy’s mom recorded him singing, “Remember Me” from the Disney-Pixar movie, “Coco” to his baby sister, Ava, who passed away last May. He had no idea he was being recorded. He just picked up the guitar and sang. ️This is the song he was singing by Miguel:

 

We’ve launched our newest 2018 project to help adopt animals! Help Travis find his forever home #WetNoseWednesday

Meet Travis! What a sweet boy!

Travis is a friendly, fun-loving guy (just look at that smile)! He is a fabulous running/walking/hiking buddy and enjoys meeting new people. Travis is also very smart and food motivated – he loves to learn and picks up commands quickly. Travis has in-home experience and very nice manners. He’d be a fantastic best friend for an active person or family!

What better way to kick off 2018 than with a new Best Friend. Travis is just $18 to adopt this week and he’s neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Best Friends Pet Adoption Center in Mission Hills is open noon to 8 pm everyday, and all pets can go home immediately. Learn more at bestfriendsLA.org

Listen to the Ellen K Morning Show every Wednesday to check for the highlighted pet of the week available for adoption.
