Colds and flus are a part of everyday life. They are usually caused by viruses, although if left untreated, bacteria can move in and cause infection as well. Colds and flus can be treated effectively with natural therapies that both kill the infecting organism and support the immune system.
Lingering or recurrent infection is a signal of an immune system that is overwhelmed. Natural therapies are also helpful in these cases, to restore disease resistance.
Cold symptoms include congestion, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, dry cough, swollen glands and a low fever. As the cold progresses discharges may increase and become green or yellow in colour. The duration of a cold is usually 7 –10 days. Flus usually have the same symptoms as a cold but are more severe. High fever, chills and body ache also occur. Flus can also attack the gastrointestinal system and cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The duration of a flu is usually one week, but full recovery can take longer.

What you can do to prevent the Flu
Good hygiene is important to prevent the spread of colds and flus. Use disposable tissues when coughing or sneezing to prevent viral spread. Throw tissues in a receptacle that is away from the living quarters. Wash your hands frequently, with soap.
Keep dishes, utensils and toothbrushes used by the ill person away from those used by other house members. Do not use antibacterial soaps or cleaning products. They can actually lead to an increase in the virulence, or disease-causing potential, of viruses and bacteria in the home.
Dietary approaches to colds and flus are as follows. Increase fluid intake to decrease the viscosity of mucous secretions. A diet high in raw fruits and vegetables provides a good source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Onions and garlic are good sources of substances that make up anti-inflammatory compounds and help to kill microbes. Flaxseed and fish oils contain essential fatty acids that are anti-inflammatory. Avoid animal products because they contain inflammatory precursors. Avoid dairy products, processed foods, white flour and sugar products all of which increase mucous production.
Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a health professional before use. If symptoms persist for more than 3 days or worsen, consult a health professional. Persistent symptoms of fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may be the sign of a more serious condition. This product is not designed as a replacement for a flu vaccination. If you have been diagnosed or believe you are at high risk for complications due to influenza, consult your health professional for appropriate treatment.
