As the wheather is changing - in Europe to cold wheather, in the UAE to cooler wheather - everybody is coming up with flues. Runny noses all around you, everybody is feeling tired, but then...don't we want to ENJOY the beautiful autumn wheather?? So in order to avoid to be swept from your feet, just follow some simple rules: be sure to be dressed warm enough even if you might tend to sweat...it's better than freezing! Take long walks in the fresh air as often as you can AND....take good care of your nutrition! A lot of fresh fruits and raw veggies are even more vital at the moment than in any other season of the year. Be sure to have a fresh juice of oranges, grapefruits and some lemon everyday. If you can't, please don't forget your Vitamin C food supplement (1000mg/day).
