Winter Cold And Chaga
If you polled 10 people at random about how to help ward off infections in wintertime, you’d get 10 different responses – take garlic, drink ginger, eat some chicken soup . And most of them wouldn’t work. We have a lot to learn about our immune systems before anyone or anything is able to render the body impenetrable to disease. But that doesn’t prevent academics from studying the subject.
What is the difference between the flu and a cold?
Flu is the name commonly used to describe symptoms of the influenza virus, which is an air-borne infectious viral disease. Whilst you can catch flu at any time of year, it is more common in winter.
Avoiding flu and cold
While medicine can help in reducing flu and cold symptoms, the best strategy lies in avoiding infection in the first place.
– A thorough approach to hand hygiene, with frequent hand washing, is vital to reducing tthe common cold and flu.
– Take vitamins and probiotics. Taking a daily multivitamin is especially important in the winter when we may be less likely to be eating enough fresh fruit and vegetables, and are also more at risk from infection. Studies have shown that taking probiotic supplements can improve the body’s resistance to bacterial and viral infections.
– Keep on moving. Dr Bird says: ‘Don’t underestimate the importance of regular activity, especially in winter. Apart from keeping our circulation going, regular moderate exercise increases the number of natural killer (NK) cells in our bodies.
– Get plenty of fluids. It helps break up your congestion, makes your throat moist, and keeps you from getting dehydrated. Try water, herbal teas, fruit drinks, or the most beneficial beverage CHAGA MUSHROOM TEA.
