WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
FLU AND COLDS
Every cold or influenza can begin with different initial symptoms; often, they start with the typical cold symptoms, like a scratchy throat, sneezing, and a stuffy nose. Further, the whole body can be affected by fatigue, muscle and joint aches, even fever may occur.
A real flu (influenza virus infection) shows the same symptoms, but usually a little stronger; it is characterized by high fever and strong body aches.
Already weakened people, babies, toddlers, and old people should consult a physician. Often, the body can cope with colds and flu-like infections, depending on the symptoms of the infection.
If no improvement occurs after a few days, a visit to the doctor is recommended to prevent a bacterial infection and to prevent consequential bacterial infection damage.
The inflammatory reaction and the development of fever are important functions of the body’s immune response to acute infections. Through heat and inflammation, the immune system is trying to destroy the pathogens, so they can be removed afterwards.
Therefore, these healthy defense mechanisms should not be suppressed by medications, but the immune system should be supported in its task. From a Tibetan perspective, the hot Tripa energy is being increased. Yet, an excess Tripa kills not only the pathogens, but it also can trigger other physical symptoms, such as joint pain.
Therefore, cooling plants are included in the herbal mixtures of Tibetan Medicine, which alleviate flu symptoms and include warming components, which assist the body’s defense.
