Do I need a prescription for an anti-biotic?

March – June. It is best to go before winter as it takes up to 6 weeks for the injection to take full effect.

What is normal body temperature and when is it a fever?
37.2°C (98.6°F) is normal
38°C and higher is a fever
A fever is usually an indication of infection or inflammation.

Is it good to take a multi-vitamin every day?
Due to the fact that we eat so much processed and refined food, we lack a lot of vitamins and minerals. Farmland soil is also leached and stripped of nutrients. It is always a good idea to stock up on supplements.

What can I do if someone has been poisoned?
See poison centre numbers or rush to your nearest hospital. Remember to take a sample of the product with you if possible. Do not make the patient vomit before a doctor has seen the patient.

Very few are safe, especially during the first 3 months of pregnancy. Before using any medicine during pregnancy, consult your pharmacist.
