A The bad news is there’s no real cure for the flu and it usually sticks around for a week or two. But here is how Auntie deals with the flu:
Rest: This will help give your body the energy it needs to fight the flu virus and symptoms. Listen to your body, stay at home and sleep, especially during the first 24 hours after becoming ill or starting to feel like something is wrong.
Avoid making others sick: The flu is highly contagious and you can give it to colleagues if you go to work sick and cough and sneeze over alles. Stay at home.
Stay hydrated: Water is key, add in some sports drinks like Energade, ginger tea, lemon tea and so on.
Get meds: You can only treat the symptoms of flu, i.e cough, fever, blocked nose.
There’s over the counter meds, huisraadjies, and homeopathic options to choose from.
