How to survive the winter?
Influenza virus is one of the most harmful, but there are time-tested methods that can help survive the epidemic without health complications, the Novyny Zakarpattya claim.
Rinse the nose
As you know, the flu virus is easily spread by airborne droplets. In this regard, nasopharynx is an outpost on the way of viruses. Upon returning home, rinse nasal passages. It is best to use special sprays that are sold in pharmacies. If during an epidemic, you have to spent a long time in a public place, lubricate inside of the nostrils with oxolinic ointment every three hours.
Properly selected diet is a reliable tool in the fight against influenza. Add to your daily menu lemons, black currants, sea buckthorn, viburnum - foods rich in ascorbic acid, and the epidemic will not affect you (vitamin C, which is found in natural products, has the ability to destroy the influenza virus). Onions, garlic and horseradish are the time-tested remedies that can also help to survive during the epidemic. Cereals (buckwheat, corn, barley) are also very useful, they remove mucus and metabolic products from the body.
What to do when you are sick? The correct tactic
If you could not avoid the infection, your main task is to prevent complications: rest in bed, call a doctor. But keep in mind that antibiotics are powerless against the influenza virus - do not get carried away by them.
Fever during the flu demonstrates the high resistance of the body. So if you tolerate fever relatively well, do not rush to take potent drugs. Use natural methods: cool compresses or rubbing the body with a weak solution of apple cider vinegar may help.
In general, drink a lot of herbal tea - it aids the recovery.
