Tips & Info

If your cold or flu is moderate to severe, or lasts more than 7 days consult your midwife or doctor.

Avoid sugar and dairy during the duration of a cold or flu as this increases mucous production.

Drink fluids! At least 8 glasses of water each day.

Make sure you have adequate rest during infection.

Getting up and walking around in the fresh air helps loosen mucous congestion so don't confine yourself to the bedroom all day.

Increase fruits and/or fruit juices with no added sugar, or make your own! Apple, carrot and ginger works a treat for colds and flu.

Add a few drops of breathe easy essential oil to a diffuser to aid breathing.

Wash hands often to prevent spreading the virus.
