We are in the middle of a flu pandemic. WHO is searching for ways to tackle this spreading problem. They have even closed schools in parts of the United States. The scary thing is that we are in spring and the beginning of summertime. This is typically not flu season. The experts are just waiting, watching and preparing for the upcoming winter season when flu strikes.
What Happens When You Get The Flu?
One minute you think you feel fine and the next minute you start to feel lousy! Suddenly, you are feeling weak, sweaty, chills, trembly, sneezing like mad, tummy aches and cramps, can't think straight, and you just want to go home to bed.

Purchase a homeopathic remedy kit with a booklet that tells you how and when to use them. This is added security for the traditional steps to health care.
