New Research Reveals Effective Herbal Flu Remedies

Health 4 All, September, 2000 by Joel Thuna

People commonly apply the term "flu" to almost any wintertime ailment that makes them feel bad. Influenza (the flu) is actually a specific infection of the respiratory tract caused by influenza viruses.

Influenza is similar to the common cold, in that both are respiratory infections caused by viruses. They are often misdiagnosed as each other, however influenza is more serious and severe. Influenza typically has a sudden onset with headaches, chills, and cough followed rapidly by fever, appetite loss, muscle aches and tiredness. Gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, can sometimes accompany influenza, especially in children, but are rarely prominent.

Influenza is widespread, infecting over 1/4 of all Canadians during flu season and half of all Canadians under 15. There may be local outbreaks of influenza anytime during the fall with definite outbreaks common in Canada from November through May. The number of deaths in Canada due to influenza or its complications will vary each year, but is estimated to be 500 - 1,500 per season.

Elder

One could say elderberry (Sambucus nigra) flowers were designed by nature to fight influenza. They are highly antiviral, attacking the viruses that cause influenza, while acting as an immunostimulant by building and toning the body's entire immune system. The flowers' diaphoretic (sweat-promoting) properties further stimulate the body's immune system to combat invading microbes.

When our bodies are producing excessive amounts of mucous (e.g. hay fever, sinusitis, colds, influenza, etc.) elder flowers help to reduce uncomfortable upper respiratory tract inflammation. This ability also permits preparations from the flowers to soothe sore throats and coughs.

Oregano

Oregano has a highly deserved reputation as a natural remedy. This culinary spice has been used for centuries to treat respiratory problems such as colds, flu, asthma, bronchitis, and coughs.

Researches into oregano's benefits verify this herbs immunostimulant and antimicrobial action. Studies show that oregano builds and tones the immune system. It also destroys viruses and bacteria on contact, including the viruses that cause influenza.

Fighting Back

You can arm yourself with nature's potent flu fighting arsenal. Adding an oregano and elder supplement to your daily regime can give your body the extra power it needs to rise above this year's flu season. This powerhouse herbal combination can provide you with a shield against winter's infection misery.
