Now is the time to invest in a good immune booster such as Echinacea which comes in various forms, such as herbal tincture, tablets and pastilles. It's available at most good chemists including Holland & Barrett and Boots and really well worth taking a course of this powerful herbal favourite as a general support, especially if you are feeling a bit run down or if you've been in touch with someone who has the 'flu, even a cough or a cold.
Homeopathy is also a way of helping to support the immune system and we call it constitutional treatment. This system of medicine is natural and non-toxic and can be a supportive way of helping to avoid those unwanted viruses. Homeopathy is used by many people all over the world as a form of preventative treatment and homeopathic remedies can also help support the actual symptoms which accompany the 'flu such as aching limbs, fever, headaches, lack of energy etc.
