Swine Flu and 3 approaches for natural protection.

The single most effective way to stop or slow the spread of diseases such as swine ‘flu is to prevent the spread of germs by:
  • washing your hands regularly with soap and water
  • covering your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze
  • disposing of used tissues as soon as possible
  • staying at home if you do become ill
Natural approaches against Swine ‘flu:

1. Fortify your immune system: Stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, lack of exercise and unhealthy living, as well as underlying health conditions can all undermine your immune system. The herbal tincture of Echinacea taken regularly is believed to act as an immune booster. Nutritionally, garlic is said to be a natural antibiotic. A whole clove of garlic crushed and mixed with honey is said to help the body fight off infection. Early nights and uninterrupted sleep, whenever possible, will allow your body to rest and recover. For those of you living and working in metropolitan areas, exercise should not be reserved for weekends or late night gym sessions. Get on your bike. Cycling to work is a fantastic way to frame a sedentary day at the office with immune, metabolism and general health boosting exercise.

2. Respiratory System protection: For those of you forced into crowded buses or airline travel with coughing and sputtering commuters, a fantastic tip and first line of defense for the respiratory system is the use of Essential oils. Rosemary is an uplifting oil, ideal for the morning commute. Mix a drop or 2 in a teaspoon of almond or olive oil and dab around the nostrils. As long as you can smell the rosemary it will be acting as a antiseptic to any nasty antigens making their way into your respiratory system.  Lavender can be applied if you are after trying to get some shut eye, useful for long-haul flights, as it is a calming and sedatory oil.

3. Homeopathic Remedies for ‘Flu symptoms: The number 1 remedy for initial on-set of ‘flu like symptoms is ACONITE 30C. One small pill or tablet can be taken once a hour for 3 hours or stop with improvement. This is the remedy to nip a cold or ‘flu in the bud. The fever is the bodies natural immune response to a virus. A fever is produced by the body to burn off the virus. To force the fever down when it is stable and not at a dangerous level goes against the natural immune response. Homeopathic remedies will support this process and can help to stabilise the fever. Reach for a homeopathic remedy and apply a tepid sponge to the face.
