This winter, learn how to better navigate you and your family through the annual flu outbreak. Start by exploring how homeopathic medicines empower everyone from moms and busy professionals to health care practitioners to relieve acute conditions like coughs, colds and flu. Learn the principle, benefits, limitations, history and how to best use these naturally-working options as your first line of defense.
Next, understand how the flu virus works in the body and why having a strong immune system is so important. The best flu-fighting foods and simple recipes used by other cultures to treat flu naturally are shared, since 70 percent of your immune system lies in your digestive tract.
Look at how flu spreads through schools. Find out when children should stay home from school and how to involve children in their own health beyond just taking a pill.
