Fight the Aussie Flu

Been hit by the Aussie Flu?

It’s that time of year – flu and cold viruses are rife! What can you do to boost your immunity to these little bugs naturally? Or probably more appropriate – is there a natural way to relieve the symptoms if you’ve already been struck? The most important thing that you do if you have a winter bug is REST. (Obviously seek medical attention too). Give your body the best possible chance of fighting the infection by resting as much as possible, even though it might seem boring as f*ck!

I’ve created a deliciously warming, natural anti-inflammatory drink to help ease your symptoms and give you a little hug in a mug. Here’s the recipe…
