If you regularly catch colds and flu, you may have an imbalance in your immune system which may make you more susceptible to infections. A poor diet, nutritional deficiencies and/or a lack of exercise can all lead to these imbalances in your immune system. A strong immune system can help to protect you from potentially harmful invaders, such as viruses and bacteria, by recognising and responding to them as a threat. Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic specialises in providing lasting cold and flu treatment that focuses on the prevention of illness rather than the treatment of symptoms.
Contrary to popular belief, viruses cause colds and Flu – not bacteria. Viruses are minute infectious agents which invade and hijack your cells. The immune system recognises viruses as invaders and attempts to destroy them before they can invade your cells. If the immune system is out of balance however, it may not have the ability to destroy viruses and viral infections can occur. Common symptoms of viral infections include sore throat, fever and fatigue. The cold and flu treatment professionals at MNMC can help you find relief from these unwanted symptoms.
If your immune system is struggling to defend you, don’t be too concerned; Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic can help! Particular herbs and nutrients may help you to manage your cold and flu symptoms naturally, as well as improving underlying immune imbalances. A number of herbs and nutrients may be beneficial as a means of cold and flu treatment.
