Take vitamin d. At least 5000iu a day. VitD rapes the flu.

Not really.

Rapeage is out of the question though.

for some reason, eating oranges always works for me. Not drinking oj. Eating oranges. Body always responds to it when I start getting a cold or something worse.

And so the old battle between MDs and PhDs continues.

Oh I understand them quite well. I used to be mandated to get the flu shot. And I always got the flu after the shot. There are non LIVE VIRUS flu shots though.It all gets complicated but I was healthier when I was not mandated to get the flu shots.


I'm a healthcare worker. Treat flu every year. Get the flu shot every year. Feel like shite for a day or so after the shot.

Never caught the flu.

Had something similar around Dec 22-Jan 2. Christmas day was brutal. Still lingering but I'm mostly over it. Felt like a really bad sinus infection at first....everyone around me at work had it (I work and live in the Memphis area) and my wife had it. I knew it was coming even though I got the flu shot this year.

Before December, I hadn't had the flu in years. Whatever this was topped any sickness I have had as an adult.

Yeah.

Vitamin D is mostly used for unrelated stuff like calcium absorption.

No study has a conclusive link between immune function and Vit D

re: The U.S. Flu Epidemic


I've found that I am sick less often when I eat a good bit of bananas. Nothing to back it up other than I am sick when I don't eat them and not when I do.
