hi-im new and wondering what health challenged people are doing to prevent flu

im staying away from crowds and resting and hoping it wont get me. i also use elderberry extract each day. the news is so scarey i feel i should add anti-viral herbs but not sure which ones.

hope i can figure out your site. i see there is a lot of info here-unfortuneatly i have many conditions that you cover so i will be all over the place if i can figure things out. im older and not that used to computers.

Have you had your flu shot? That's your best defense. Then wash your hands frequently and keep them out of your eyes.

Re: hi-im new and wondering what health challenged people are doing to prevent flu

I agree with Titchou,
If you are an older person then I recommend the Flu-Injection.
I have one every year as I am an Asthmatic and in my sixties. Flu in an older person can cause severe symptoms and after getting Pluresy one year I never miss mine now.
I have also found I get less colds in the winter months after my F/I.
I wish you well,

Solofelix.
