As always everything is always understood & appreciated better in hindsight!! But please don't be foolish like me... Go & get a flu shot! It is not a 100% guarantee for all strains but it is a damn good insurance policy along with other precautions you can take! You can book in at Chemist Warehouse for a flu shot & it only costs $10.99!! I have suffered from many horrible colds but haven't endured the flu for over a decade & have been a sceptic of flu shots... But after contracting this years flu strain & doing some research I can assure you all from now on I will be implementing a proactive approach to the flu season! That's for sure! Don't forget your vitamins & natural supplements are a must too for maintaining a healthy & strong immune system! Taking a good muti + probiotic are a must... But during colder months adding in echinacea, garlic, ginger and vitamin C is a must! Along with good hygiene (hand washing/sanitizing shared work spaces) Also just as a warning to you all; My onset symptoms where that of food poisoning/gastro which progressed to what I though was a head cold so was not expecting to have been the flu... Last year nationwide it killed over 500people so it can be deadly especially to children & elderly! Take care everybody & stay healthy Xx What are your thoughts on the flu shot? Or experiences with this years flu? Or even just best prevention tips/remedies? Would love to hear?
