Something big has arrived and no one quite knows what is going to happen. Rather than panic, lets just prepare our bodies as best we can.
Like with the normal flu, you give your body the best chance by improving your immune system and your health in general.
Drinking lots of water, reducing stress, sleeping well, exercise and reducing sugar and toxins will all go a long way to getting your body in good shape.
Above and beyond that there are things we can add to our diet to further improve our immune system. Below are some of our favourites:
