Now is a good time to stock up on remedies to help deal with ‘viruses’ and to boost and strengthen the immune system.   
To help support the immune system we recommend a fortnightly or monthly dose of Anas barb 200c especially for those susceptible to colds and flu viruses. Repeat when in contact with an infected person and at the first sign of symptoms followed by the remedy that fits the ailment. Below are some remedies to consider.
