In a typical year, flu season occurs from Autumn to early spring — and with it comes sniffling, sneezing, coughing, fatigue, and all the familiar trappings of the flu.
Both a cold and the flu share a few common symptoms. People with either illness often experience: runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, body aches, general fatigue. As a rule, flu symptoms are more severe than cold symptoms. Another distinct difference between the two is how serious they are. Colds rarely cause other health conditions or problems. But the flu can lead to sinusitis, ear infections, pneumonia and sepsis.
Why do some people get really sick, even die from flu, while others don’t? How do you win the cold war? Colds and flu, including COVID-19, are viral diseases that a healthy immune system should be able to fight off with natural immunity. Here I focus on how can you promote your own immune power with diet and nutrients.
