Cold & Flu

Both the common cold and the flu are among the most prevalent health complaints. Each year, approximately half of all Americans experience at least one cold, and 40 percent develop the flu, also known as influenza. Both health conditions exhibit the same symptoms, with the primary difference being that flu symptoms are usually more severe, last longer, and can be potentially fatal.

While conventional, drug-based medicine places emphasis on suppressing cold and flu symptoms with both prescription and over-the-counter medications, practitioners of natural medicine seek to address and correct the underlying reasons people become susceptible to colds and flu, especially focusing on stimulating the immune system. These natural cure approaches also have the additional advantage of being free of harmful side effects, unlike medicinal drugs.

There are a variety of colds and flu, but all of them are due to respiratory viruses, primarily a class of virus known as rhinoviruses. Colds fall into two main categories, head colds and chest colds. Either class of cold, if left untreated, can lead to more serious respiratory conditions, such as bronchitis and pneumonia.

There are literally hundreds of different flu strains. Unlike colds, which can strike at any time of year, flu outbreaks are generally seasonal in nature, usually occurring in late autumn and during the winter.
