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.

  • Love it

    star

    Like many people I used to get an upper respiratory tract infection at least once every year and they were getting progressively more severe becoming deep set bronchial infections. I have bee taking this supplement for several years now and have not had an URT since I started. I am really happy with it and have recommended it to many friends.

  • A Must have for any seasonal niggle

    star

    Brilliant product. Recommended by our chemist when feeling miserable with heavy cold some years ago. I always have a stock on hand, buy for my staff over winter and have supplied to ailing neighbours. Works quickly and effectively for us and has kept the worst at bay. Better than other similar products on the market for more money.

  • Very effective

    star

    Have used the pilules for our babies/children and adults alike, and have great success in keeping colds & flu away. Also used in conjunction with Weleda Cold & Flu Drops when I missed the first signs! Very effective for all the family. Highly recommend this product.
