What is Influenza?
Influenza, "flu", is a very highly contagious respiratory illness that is caused by the influenza A or B virus. The flu virus appears most frequently in the winter and into spring, earing the winter months the nickname "flu season". The flu attacks the body by spreading through the lower and/or upper respiratory tracts, leading to symptoms such as coughing, headache, chest discomfort, high fever, body aches, fatigue, weakness and more. These symptoms tend to come on abruptly and if they are left untreated, complications can arise leading to pneumonia.
Since the flu is viral, antibiotics can not completely cure the illness, and therefore, it is imperative to take precautions when you have the flu to help your body naturally fight the viral infection and heal itself; these include resting, keeping warm, and consuming plenty of fluids. Supporting your body's natural healing mechanisms with homeopathic remedies, such as Pascoe's Gripps, can also help the body to heal faster and fight the viral infection.
It is also important to stay home and avoid contact with others as the flu is very contagious. It spreads through respiratory secretions and can, therefore, spread from inhaling droplets in the air, charing saliva, or coming into contact with a contaminated item.
It is estimated that 10-20% of the world's population is affected by the flu every year.
