How to prevent influenza

In the cold season, a person’s susceptibility to disease increases. People often get the flu, because a weakened immune system can hardly resist this disease. The issue of protecting the body in the cold season becomes relevant.

To prevent colds, doctors advise 1-2 months before the start of the cold season to get flu vaccinations.

Such a measure will prepare the body in advance for virus attacks and help develop reliable protection. During a flu epidemic, it is also recommended to take a complex of multivitamins and minerals.

In addition to medicines, there are many folk remedies for the control and prevention of influenza. They are much cheaper and sometimes able to tone the body better than drugs.

Measures for the prevention of influenza folk remedies a great many. But first of all, it is worth starting with hygiene procedures. A mandatory item in them is the ventilation of the premises, because fresh air reduces the number of microbes. Try to avoid crowded places, because there the risk of infection is much higher. If you prefer walking on public transport, this will not only protect you from a dangerous virus, but also physically strengthen it, which is also important for fighting the flu.

Sleep is an important component of a healthy immune system. Sleep deficiency leads to a general weakening of the body, which increases the likelihood of getting sick. In the cold season, it is worth increasing the duration of sleep by 1-2 hours.

Hardening is an important measure to prevent the fight against influenza. Accustom yourself to wash in the morning with cold water or rub her whole body. A contact shower strengthens blood vessels, improves tone and has a beneficial effect on overall health. It is worth paying attention to the disinfection of the premises. A tablespoon of vinegar, diluted in a liter of water and set on fire, will purify the air.

In the cold season, you should take foods rich in vitamin C. It is in large quantities in currants, which should be prepared in advance for the winter, fresh tangerines, lemons, sauerkraut, oranges, grapefruits and cranberries. From the latter, you can make vitamin fruit drinks, incredibly rich in nutrients.

Receiving decoctions from medicinal plants will help you reliably protect yourself from the flu. Before going to bed, make linden tea. Combine raspberry and currant leaves and pour boiling water over them. Reception of 2 glasses a day of this decoction will favorably affect your immunity.

Honey is your main ally in the fight against colds. Taking 50 grams per day of this healing substance will saturate the body with useful elements. Propolis is also important during the flu epidemic. A small piece laid over the cheek at night will destroy all the dangerous microbes in the oral cavity.

Eating garlic will help you reliably protect yourself from the flu. It acts effectively and perfectly deals with germs. For prevention, use 2 cloves per day. Carrot juice will also help you fight the flu.
Washing the nose with a weak solution of potassium permanganate or iodine will significantly reduce the risk of getting sick. It is worth taking baths with essential oils. Pine, fir and juniper oil are especially useful. Evaporating from the surface of the water, they destroy all microbes from the surface of the mucous membranes and disinfect the air.

If you still get sick, then do not self-medicate. You should immediately contact qualified specialists who will tell you how to proceed. Do not tolerate the disease on your legs, because this is fraught with complications.
