Preparing for Cold and Flu Season


You will probably want to do as much as you can to prevent sickness in the first place. A balanced diet of whole foods, including a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits, plus a good multivitamin are pretty good insurance against illness; but, if you do catch something, don’t panic. For most relatively healthy people, recovering from seasonal colds and flus doesn’t necessarily require a trip to the doctor unless the illness takes a particularly nasty turn like it can in the elderly, very small children, or people with seriously compromised immune systems. If we’re talking green mucus or high fever, of course, use common sense and get help. Most of the time, though, a cold or flu can be treated at home naturally, usually with few side effects and for much less money. There is a wide variety of vitamins, herbs, and other supplements that are traditionally used for these types of illnesses. What you choose will depend on your symptoms and personal preferences.
