Cold & Flu Care : How to Prevent a Flu

November 7, 2019


It’s the flu season again, and you’d like
to do whatever you can to avoid catching the flu this year. Hi, I’m Dr. Savage, I’m an
osteopathic family practice physician from Tampa. First of all, I must say, consider
getting a flu shot, they’re are actually certain populations in which it’s particularly important
to get a flu shot. Other than that, that helps the immune system, other things to do to help
your own immune system, would be to live a healthy lifestyle, get regular exercise, have
a balanced diet, and get plenty of sleep. Most importantly avoid exposure, avoid exposure
to the influenza virus which causes the flu. If you’re sitting next to somebody in a restaurant,
and they sneeze on you, or you share a glass with somebody who isn’t yet showing the signs
of the illness, you might be out of luck in that situation. However, if grandma was sick,
it would be responsible of her, or anybody else who’s not feeling well, to cover their
mouth when they cough or sneeze, cleanup after themselves, maintain a clean working living
environment. That would would be the best way to avoid catching the flu this year. I’m
Dr. Savage, and I wish you the best of health.

    I have never taken the flu shot, and friends who have have said they still catch the flu after the shot. However i have found a great herbal tea that stops the cold at its tracks. When you feel that soar throught starting drink Organic Echinacea Plus by Traditional Medicinals. Truly it helps. Drink like two cups a day. and you wont even catch the full cold. And i think it might also help once you have got the full cold. Insha Allah~ Peace
