Wash your hands

The simple act of washing your hands frequently – especially if you are around people or interacting with people – can go a long way in decreasing your chances of catching any infection.

Build your immune system

Keep as healthy as you can by eating well and exercising regularly. A strong immune system is the biggest advantage in warding off flu. Tissue salts to boost the immune system are Organo Number 1, Toxi Loges drops as well as Ferrum phos.

Sunny sunflowers

Sunflower seeds are not only for the birds. These seeds are packed with nutrients in the form of minerals iron and magnesium, vitamin E and other essential fats. South Africa has the most wonderful winter sun.

On a good day take the opportunity to expose your body to the sunshine. Your skin needs controlled contact with UV rays to make vitamin D which is necessary for both you and your growing baby.

Blocked nose

A stuffy nose is a complaint of pregnancy and winter can make this worse. Beware of taking over-the-counter decongestant tablets. Try Olbas or Eucalyptus oil in a bowl of boiling water. Add a few drops of oil and inhale the steam. Nasenol or Salix are two decongestant sprays that are safe to use during pregnancy. This will leave your nasal passages feeling open and refreshed, and easier to breathe. Nasosinus capsules may also help, but if not take Nat Mur tissue salt tablets one every three hours while awake, and this will help normalize distribution of body fluids.

Runny nose

Mucus and sneezing that occurs with a runny nose can really get you down. Tissue salts number 4 (Ferrum phos) and 7 (Kali phos) are recommended if the mucus is thick. If caused from an allergic or hay fever reaction and sneezing is very prominent then Natura’s Hay F will sort that out quickly.

Sore throat – a traditional remedy

If your throat feels scratchy and sore, gargling with salt water can help to fight a throat infection. A mixture of hot water, lemon and honey can also ease throat irritations. Pharyna drops help deal with the thick mucus of a post-nasal drip and if tonsils are inflamed try Tonsilla drops. Ferrum phos also helps and is a great immune system booster.

Soothe your sinuses

Should your sinuses get blocked, try putting two drops of tea tree oil or marjoram oil on a tissue. Sniff at regular inter vals. Sinfrontal and Congestivo (both homeopathic remedies) and tissue salts 4 (Ferrum phos), 5 (Kali Mur) and 8 (Mag Phos) will provide symptomatic relief from sinus.
