Emergency wards are overflowing. Stomachs are churning and red noses are raw.
Moaning and groaning is commonplace as the flu season strikes its homeruns.
Here are a few helpful hints to ward of its blast attack.
Suck on zinc lozenges.
Spray with Silver…the eyes, nose, mouth and hands. It kills viruses.
Chomp on a fresh garlic. Unless of course they are hidden in a snow bed, in which case, take the enteric-coated garlic pills.
Drink lots of green tea. Decaffeinated is probably best so that at least you will sleep well, in the dark of course.
(If you want a real eye opener of a book on sleeping in the dark, see T.S. Wileys 'Lights out' )
Hang out under an orange tree and enjoy its succulent nectars. Or, if Fir trees are the only option, load up on the Vitamin C the Canadian way. Fresh oranges from the health store, vitamin C powder in a smoothie)
We wish you well. But if you do succumb, rest in bed and drink plenty of water!
