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.

Product Reviews

  • 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.

  • I had to try it to believe it!

    star

    A friend with knowledge of these things recommended I take one Go Healthy Olive Leaf capsule daily for immune support while recovering from my last winter virus. This winter, as I felt another cold coming on, I have been taking two of these daily, along with 1,000 mg Vitamin C. It has completely altered the usual course of my viruses! It has helped alleviate the worst symptoms, but most importantly, I have not developed a secondary infection. This hasn't been the case for years; already I've saved $$ on Doctor's visits and prescription fees, and have minimised time off work. I can't recommend this regime highly enough!
