Queensland Health has confirmed an outbreak of the mosquito-borne virus Ross River Fever in SE Queensland with 1000 cases seen in the last 2 months. Heavy summer rain and high tides have been blamed for a rise in mosquito numbers. Symptoms appear up to 10 days after the bite and include fever, swollen painful glands and joints, muscle aches, skin rash, exhaustion and headaches. It’s a bit like a bad flu and can knock your energy for 6 – 8 weeks. Conventional medicine has no answers apart from bed rest for these viral infections. We use homeopathic medicines and natural immune stimulants to get you back on deck and feeling good again as soon as possible.
