Take these simple steps to ward off colds and flu and stay healthy in the cooler months.
If you do get caught in the wind, apply a heat pack to the back of your neck when you get home, to “warm the channels” and prevent health problems from occurring.
If you are susceptible to colds and flu, you might need some herbal energy armour to get your body’s resistance into shape! “Jade screen” herbal formula provides an energy shield for bodies that are weakened against attack.

Raw vegetables aren’t suitable in cool weather. Instead, try steaming, roasting and stir-frying vegetables to give your body warmth and energy.
Hot-type "colds" and flu start with a sore throat and sometimes fever with blocked nose that is yellow. Use Peppermint tea to cool the heat and lightly sweat out the wind attack.
