Treat/prevent that cold and flu today

Treat Cold and FluRelax, revive - and survive the daily grind

If you’ve been struck down by a cold, giving yourself a break may be the best thing you can do. To fight the good fight for your body, balance that cold with warmth – literally. Your body will benefit from hot drinks, hot showers, and gargling with warm salty water.
Treat Cold and FluProtect what Matters
Annual vaccinations are a more effective way to treat the flu than antibiotics, which aren’t even designed to treat the flu. Each Autumn, get proactive and get a vaccination – this can save you from some of the known side effects of antibiotics like digestional problems and thrush – and prevention is better than cure!
It’s all in your hands

One of the best (and cheapest!) ways to keep cold and flu at bay is one that should be incorporated into your everyday life. Take action on your health by creating physical barriers for the little micro-critters which spread infection. Keep your hands clean by washing with soap before eating or cooking, and after coughing or blowing your nose. Invest in a handbag-sized bottle of anti-bac hand sanitiser for those times when you’re nowhere near a sink!

Smoke and Mirrors

Is your life literally getting you down? Smokers with a cold or flu will be bedridden for longer. That’s because smoking slows down the body’s detox processes. If you’re a smoker, make this your opportunity to cut back, or even better, quit altogether – it’s never too late!

The Flu Family

Over the counter cold and flu medicines vary in effectiveness. Painkillers like paracetamol and ibuprofen are good for relief from a sore throat, but aspirin should not be given to children, as it may cause complications. ‘Cold and Flu’ medicines should also be used with caution in children, and should be avoided altogether for children under two.

Free and Easy

While decongestants will unblock a stuffy nose, they can cause problems. You should take special care if you have heart problems, high blood pressure, or if you’re taking other medicines. They might cause side effects like hallucination and excitability in children younger than 12 years. Saline (salt water) drops or sprays are a safer, natural and equally effective option.
