Cold and Flu Prevention – Occupational Health & Safety Magazine November 2011

As an integrative physician, I often have patients ask me what they can do to treat seasonal illness with safe and effective natural therapies. Whether you're talking about a common cold or the more serious flu virus, it's easy to consider these ordinary ailments to be an inevitable part of the "cold and flu" season. Colds are the most prevalent infectious illness in the United States, but they usually don't present dangerous symptoms unless one has a weakened immune system. The flu, on the other hand, can be a much more serious illness since it is a highly contagious respiratory infection caused by a wide variety of influenza viruses. It even can lead to death in rare cases among immune-compromised individuals. Fortunately, there are both short-term and long-term steps you can take to strengthen and improve your body's immune defenses safely and naturally. With a strong and well-trained immune system, you can effectively lessen the damage that both types of illnesses can cause to your body. In fact, the right health-promoting actions can prevent the common cold or flu from occurring altogether -- a critical benefit for the busy working person or multi-tasking parent who believes he or she simply can't afford to get sick. In addition to building immunity, these recommendations support your overall health and vitality so you can enjoy more energy and productivity throughout the year, without being held back by seasonal ailments.
