Winter flu season has arrived!
If you haven't been following the winter flu season news, flu hospitalizations in England are at an all-time high, and the NHS is bracing for a severe outbreak with rates that are more than eight times higher than normal for this time of year.
According to an analysis of NHS data by the Telegraph, it has the potential to be one of the virus's worst outbreaks in recent years. It may even outnumber the 2017-18 outbreak, which was one of the deadliest in the last 20 years, killing nearly 30,000 people.
Weakened immune system and flu
If your immune system is weakened, you are more likely to become ill when viruses (such as a cold or the flu) circulate. When you have a virus like the flu, you are more likely to develop flu complications like pneumonia or other infections because your immune system is unable to fight them off.
To reduce your chances of getting sick during the winter flu season, it is critical to maintain a strong immune system. Here are a few helpful tips:
How to use
• Add 8 drops into your diffuser, turn on and breathe deeply.
• 3 to 5 drops on a tissue and breathe in regularly
• 3 to 5 drops on a tissue and place next to/under your pillow at night
• Add a few drops into an essential oil necklace/pendant
• 3 to 5 drops in hot water, place a towel over your head and breathe in the steam
• 3 to 5 drops in a bowl of hot water, placed into a room where needed
• use when you are around other people who have viruses
• Organic Wintergreen
• Organic Eucalyptus
• Organic Peppermint
• Organic Clove

• Organic Rosemary Extract
Now, I just scratched the surface with these three tips that you can use to help boost your immune system during the winter flu season, but if you really want to make sure that you give yourself the best possible antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients that are missing in your diet, then I recommend getting started with Superfoods Plus and Tropical C or Choc C, which are all available in my online store.
