As this winter approaches we are being told by experts that this year’s flu vaccines will probably be ineffective against the Australian flu viruses heading our way because they have already mutated.

As Autumn approaches and the days rapidly get shorter, the erratic fluctuation between mild, but falling daytime temperatures and increasingly cold nights, means the body has to work harder to maintain its internal equilibrium. The body needs to adjust to the unstable external temperatures in order to maintain its immune defenses against opportunistic viruses and bacteria that thrive under these conditions. In other words, to stay healthy and maintain optimal immunity, the body must adapt effectively to the changing environment of this season.
