Seasonal Health Tips for Everyone. hayfever


Despite the hard-sell from medical establishment, the flu jab only contains last year’s strains of viruses. So it DOES NOT guarantee immunity. Vaccines can often have very unpleasant side effects caused by the cocktail of toxic chemicals they contain in order to preserve the microbes. Besides, PREVENTION is always better than cure. If you’re still concerned, and don't want the flu jab, consult your qualified Homeopath about a SAFE FLU PROPHYLACTIC.

But here are some simple, natural & highly effective steps you can take to remain flu-free this winter:

  • Wash your hands frequently and try to avoid touching your face unnecessarily. Gargle twice a day with warm salt water, or your preferred mouthwash.
  • Blow your nose hard once a day. Swabbing both nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is also very effective in bringing down viral populations.
  • Importantly, boost your natural immunity levels. The best way to do this to take your own, individual Homeopathic Constitutional Remedy throughout the winter months. ASK YOUR QUALIFIED HOMEOPATH ABOUT THIS, OR ABOUT A SPECIFIC REMEDY YOU COULD TAKE WEEKLY AS A SAFEGUARD.
  • Also, make sure you eat plenty of Vitamin C-rich foods, or take a good brand of Vit C tablets with Zinc in order to boost absorption. Consider taking the herbal supplement Echinacea, or similar.
  • Find ways to reduce your stress levels, eg. CBT, relaxation techniques, yoga, gentle exercise.
  • Drink plenty of water & soothing, warm liquids to wash off viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, proliferate or cause harm.
  • GET PLENTY OF REST! This is very important and equally, do NOT return to work too soon. Insufficient rest and recuperation does not allow the body to repair itself and increases the chances of succumbing to Post-Viral Fatigue (also known as Chronic Fatigue), which is a long-term and highly debilitating condition.

  • Consider taking homeopathic remedies in a 30C strength to match your flu symptoms, which always tend to change. Homeopathic Remedies that match your own symptoms will promote speedy recovery. For example:
    ACONITE ~ for relief of all symptoms that come on suddenly;
    ARSENICUM ~ for tummy upsets, chilliness, restlessness;
    BELLADONNA ~ for high fevers, sore throats;
    GELSEMIUM ~ for weakness, shivering, aches & pains.

  • For deeper, longer-lasting relief & in severe cases, it is essential that you consult a qualified health professional of your choice

    And, by the way, talking of vaccines...

    After years of reassuring parents about the safety of the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine, the UK government has finally had to concede that it can have serious side effects.

    A UK court has ruled that the vaccine caused severe brain damage in a boy, now aged 18, and has ordered the government to pay compensation. The ruling brings to an end a lengthy campaign by the boy's mother, Jackie Fletcher, who created the pressure group JABS to help other parents win compensation for their vaccine-damaged children. Jackie's son, Robert, was just 13 months old when he had the MMR vaccination. From being a healthy baby who was developing normally, he started to suffer epileptic fits and became unresponsive. He is now severely disabled. Jackie and her family have been awarded 91,000 in compensation. The judgement also sends out hope to the thousands of parents in the UK who are also fighting for compensation. (Source: Sunday Times, August 29, 2010).
