Winter is in full swing and with the cold weather comes flu season. According to the CDC, the flu spreads through droplets, which are expelled by a person who has the flu via coughing, sneezing or talking. Often times a person is exposed to the virus when they touch a surface that has these droplets and then touch their mouth, eyes or nose.
A few signs of the flu according to the CDC include: fever, cough, sore, throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, and fatigue.
This year, more than ever, we’re all very aware of any flu-like symptoms we might be experiencing. If you want to better prepare yourself to stay healthy this winter, read about natural remedies to fight the flu on our website!
