In today's show we spoke to Dr Jacquelyn Schultz - a Registered Homeopath. We were talking about the Influenza or Flu. Before the winter is out, it is thought that one in four of us will have had flu or a similar virus. But how can we really tell we have the flu rather than a severe cold? And when is the best time to have a flu vaccine to make sure it is effective – and who should absolutely not go without a flu vaccine? It is reported that in South Africa we have a flu vaccine shortage. This means that vast numbers of our population do not have the benefit of the protection from a flu vaccine and will end up getting the flu. The influenza vaccine is hailed by medical experts the most effective way to reduce a person’s chance of contracting the 'flu. But, how effective is the vaccine really? Well Dr Schultz explained more about homeopathic medicines and their effectiveness. For more information visit www.fluinfo.co.za or www.who.int
