I know the call has gone out, but if anyone of the very young or very old begin to experience flu-like systems, please visit us in medical so that we can keep an eye on you. To those of you who find yourself falling in between and experiencing symptoms, take these following recommendations seriously, because I am a doctor. So listen.
The flu is a virus and it generally can't be treated unless it's caught extremely early. Therefore, the management of symptoms is the main thing we need to be concerned with outside of full-blown prevention. While you're washing your hands frequently and staying out of public areas, here are a couple things to help you alleviate symptoms:
LIQUIDS. Your virus will thrive in dried out throats and nasal passages. Drink frequently - water, unsweetened juice or decaffeinated tea. If the gatherers or the kitchen can find any echinacea, this might be helpful to the cause. NEUTROPHILS. These are white blood cells inhibited by soups such as vegetable or chicken noodle (any soup that raises the temperature in the throat, really). ALLICIN. Garlic contains this pungent antimicrobial. If garlic is available, try to ingest a clove every 3-4 hours. Sorry vampires. SWEAT. Spices like cinnamon, coriander and ginger are often thought to alleviate fever. If these spices are available, try 250 mL of hot water, mix 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) each of powdered coriander and cinnamon with 1/4 teaspoon (1 mL) of powdered ginger. Let it steep for 10 minutes, then drink.
