Flu Info

Influenza, commonly known as "the flu", is a highly infectious disease caused by a family of influenza viruses. It affects mainly the throat, lungs and nose. The most common symptoms are chills, sore throat, fever, runny nose, muscle pains, headaches, coughing, fatigue and general body discomfort.

In most cases of the flu, recovery takes up to 2 weeks. Some people are at high risk for developing severe flu-related complications (like bacterial pneumonia). These people include the elderly (65 or older) and people with pre-existing medical conditions (asthma, lung diseases, diabetes) and those with compromised immune systems.

Although it is often confused with other influenza-like illnesses (like the common cold,) influenza is a more severe disease caused by a completely different virus. Influenza may produce nausea and vomiting, particularly in children, but these symptoms are more common in the unrelated gastroenteritis, which is sometimes inaccurately referred to as "stomach flu" or "24-hour flu".

There some natural health remedies that may help alleviate the symptoms of the flu. It is important to see your health care practitioner, if you believe you are infected with the influenza virus.

    very grateful to have won some of this as I have auto immune disease and fibromyalgia so good health days are a constant battle. since starting this I have recovered from a nasty virus and find my energy levels have improved. it is very easy to take, my kids were keen to try it.

  • GREAT PREVENTATIVE

    star

    I love this product and recommend it to anyone. I have not had a cold or sniffle in the last 2-3 years (even though I've been through lots of stress!). At the first sign of anything 'snotty' I tell the kids to take it and usually gets rid of any symptoms very quickly.
