Flu vs 24 Hr. Bug
Contrary to what most people think, the flu is not the same as a 24 hour virus. The 24 hour bug can cause fever, chills, body aches, diarrhea and vomiting. While the flu does actively participate with these symptoms, the flu primarily starts with an acute upper respiratory infection. It is actually difficult sometimes to distinguish between the common cold and the flu. The big difference is that the flu attacks very quickly and can last a few weeks. In addition to the above symptoms, the flu can cause sore throats and a very dry cough. As with the common cold, there is no cure for the flu. The best course of action is to keep your immune system strong and healthy, by eating right, taking vitamins and getting enough rest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments increase resistance enzymes, enhance cellular repair and increase white blood cell production all important parts of a healthy immune system. If you do get sick, get plenty of rest, drink lots of water and take extra vitamin C, echinacea, oregano and elderberry which are all anti-viral in nature.
