Sniff, Cough, Sniff, Sniff, Cough.

It’s that time of the year when every work place, school, shopping center and public transport has a version of sniffles going on.

Australian Medical Association [AMA] has predicted this flu season to be worse than before for the continent, especially after the epidemic that hit the United States of America late last year.

“We do tend to parallel the Northern Hemisphere in the South, so it’s a forewarning that we need to get in early and vaccinate this year,” said Dr Steve Hambleton, President of AMA.

Dr Hambleton said there would be an ample supply of the flu vaccine available in Australia from March onwards. The more vulnerable lot in the community: older people, Indigenous Australians, pregnant women and anyone with an underlying health problem, are urged to seriously consider getting the injection in the coming weeks. Contact your local GP for more info.

However, while you’re waiting to get the shot, you can take some preventative measures to stop the Influenza virus from getting to you.

In the video, I discuss some handy home remedies to get around the flu virus on the Mornings9 show with David and Sonia.

  1. As someone who does have the flu injection, provide a level of protection to my asthmatic child, I still use home remedies because invariably you still get a dose of something each winter. I do like multivital as a herbal to help.

  2. My father always used to say that a “dram”, meaning a whisky, before bed was the best thing you could do to combat any germs.

  3. I love garlic in my food, so happy to say it has served me well throughout life. It sure is a good natural remedy for that nasty flu every year.

  4. Sean says:

    During the cold months I like to take a few drops of echinacea herbal extract to keep the colds and flus away.
