While restrictions are easing and society is relaxing, the weather is getting cooler.
There is the prospect still for the media to change gears very soon as it does every year for in the months of April/May to prepare us for Australia's winter between June to August. The question is while restrictions are easing will we see another lockdown this winter?
It has been predicted by the media there will be 3 new viruses:
Japanese Encephalitis, Influenza and The Sons of Omicron (BA.2 - BA.5 subvariants).
Lets take a look so far what has come our way and how human beings have endured over the years with deadly viruses that the media has proposed is going to wipe us out for good.
Sars and Mers
The Noval Corona Virus
Sars COV2 which creates the disease COVID-19
BA.2 Omicron Subvariant a.k.a Son of Omicron
Southern hemisphere influenza

So while some may take the advice from politicians and the media, others may need to support their body chemistry to control their immunity.

While it is important to do your own due diligence and consider public health guidance, consider also supporting your immune system with diet and lifestyle strategies.
Contracting colds and flu is never enjoyable. The muscle aches and pains, the lethargy, the sore throat, the constant runny nose, the sneezing, the coughing - it's miserable. The good news is that we're here to tell you what you can do to give your immune system the boost it needs to defend against colds and flu.
The keys to boosting the immune system and staying well during cold and flu season are:
You may of heard there are immune protocols going around:
All of the above can be found in the following supplements:
If you begin to develop the telltale symptoms of a cold or flu, you must act quickly to mitigate the effects of the virus as best you can. It is important to note that a virus will only be as successful as its environment allows for. If you can control the environment (your body and immune system), you can better control the virus.
Viruses take 3 to 21 days to incubate.
When you start to have symptoms think 3 days prior:
While a big part of public health guidelines is focused on hygiene, sanitation and transmission, there does not seem to be alot of focus on the host's ability to accept or reject a bacteria or virus.

It is has been proven that co-morbidities like diabetes can accelerate pathogen growth.
Metabolic syndrome validated by body chemistry is the biggest favourable environment for microbes and cancer. More to the point Otto Heinrich Warburg won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (1931) for showing sugar feeds cancer.

In nasal congestion, the nose is filled with pathogens. The role of nasal spray is to clear the nose of such pathogens - thus reducing the risk of infection into the respiratory system (the lungs). Nasal spray may also relieve symptoms of congestion and provide comfort during a cold or flu.
Perform a throat gargle with The Brushing Solution (being careful not to swallow). The Brushing Solution is typically used as a toothpaste
and mouthwash substitute; however, it doubles as an effective cold and flu remedy. This is because it contains hydrogen peroxide and oil of
cloves, which have antiviral, antibacterial properties. Killing viruses and bacteria in the throat during the early stages may reduce the
severity of the infection and lessen symptoms moving forward into the lungs.

L- Glutathione is an antioxidant designed to preserve the integrity of the cells. Thus, glutathione plays a critical role in ensuring the viral capsid does not bind to cells and inject the virus. Glutathione is obtained through diet - specifically from foods like lamb, veal, eggs, asparagus and avocado - however, often only in small amounts. Because of this, it is degraded by protease enzymes. When taken in more concentrated doses in the form of a Glutathione supplement, it is not degraded and has a more significant effect. Administering L-Glutathione sublingually allows it to be absorbed by the body's lymphatics and is more effective and potent than glutathione derived from the diet.
L-Glutathione is available on our online store for practitioner use only.
Regular over-the-counter vitamin C products contain 500mg of vitamin C per dose. However, our very own Bio Vitamin C powder delivers 2000mg
per dose. It also contains powerful antioxidants like lysine, proline and glycine that provide additional antiviral support. The green tea
extract and citrus bioflavonoids give the added benefits to increase the uptake of vitamin C and offer extra antioxidant protection. This
unique combination of ingredients makes Bio Vitamin C a high strength vitamin C powder that benefits the immune system
(protecting from colds and flu) and supports detoxification of particular heavy metals like mercury and several other bodily
functions. To learn more about the benefits of Bio Vitamin C, click
We suggest incorporating chicken, beef or lamb bone broth into your winter diet. Not only do they deliver warmth, much-needed respite from the cold, but also nutrients to fight against viruses. The bone and the marrow contain essential amino acids like proline, lysine, glycine and cystine - all of which aid in the defence against colds and flu. Glycine and cystine are of particular importance as they serve a double purpose - also aiding in the synthesis of glutathione (whose benefits are discussed in greater detail below).
Sufficient sleep is essential on several health fronts. However, it is especially important during cold and flu season due to the role sleep plays in the immune system. During sleep, the immune system releases a type of protein called 'cytokines'. Cytokines play a critical role in cell signalling - working to organise and coordinate the body's immune response. Without them, the immune system is weakened and is less capable of mounting a defence against colds and flu. Insufficient or broken sleep will also cause a rise in cortisol which further hinders the natural healing process. Getting to bed early is one of the best ways to bolster immunity during cold and flu season.
Sundown or around 6pm is when your hormone cortisol starts to decline. About this time your defences are low and usually a cough or fever becomes apparent.
On rising, midday, sundown and before bed are critical immune times through the day.
Like sugar, alcohol causes inflammation. It also behaves like a solvent, thus hindering the synthesis of proteins essential to building immune-strengthening cells like lymphocytes. As we mentioned earlier, a low protein status weakens the immune system, thus making it more susceptible to contracting colds and flu.
While it is advisable to avoid sugar at all times, it is imperative during cold and flu season. Why? Because excess sugar limits the
effectiveness of white blood cells - ultimately suppressing the immune system. This is particularly evident in those who suffer from
metabolic syndrome, who invariably have a low white blood cell count. It is also known that sugar or glucose consumption will allow
bacteria and viruses to thrive.
What's more, if you're eating foods that are high in sugar, you're typically doing so at the expense of healthy, nutrient-dense foods. This often results in nutrient and mineral deficiency. To defend against colds and flu, the body requires sufficient nutrients and minerals - most of which we derive from the diet. Ultimately, a high sugar diet compromises the body's natural ability to defend itself.
These opportunistic scavengers also love a poor iron status, which epidemiologically may explain why
predominately females (between the age of 20-29) tend to have the highest COVID-19 cases in Queensland,
due to diet and menstruation. When diet is poor, hormones can not be in balance and thus become a 'pressure cooker' for poor immunity.

A poor iron status represents a sweet, acid, low oxygen environment. This fundamental environment seems to also nurture all diseases and will be further discussed in the below 6 subclinical defects.
The mitochondria is essentially the 'engine' of the cell - the part that produces its energy. Without adequate energy, cellular function is compromised, which hinders the detoxification process. One of the best ways to fuel the mitochondria is with iron. Containing copper, folic acid, vitamin b12, vitamin B5 and iron, Formula 3 has been specifically designed to strengthen the blood and provide the correct platform for detoxification. By supporting the formation of haemoglobin, Formula 3 aids in transporting oxygen throughout the body - thus reducing acid stress.
When cold and flu's hit and it is certainly a surprise, but there is no need to panic.
While we live in an era where politicians are maybe giving medical advice by using lucky I had immune therapy as it would have been worst off, we still need to understand our biochemical individuality and the way the body is constantly responding to the challenges we may face.
Using science and measuring the science provides an informative journey in health autonomy.
When it comes to immunity it is not good to just be fearful and
To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Fear and anxiety will also be trumped through health model thinking.
