Colds and the flu are common to all of us, as we all face exposures every winter season. This guide is based on the latest functional immunology research, and teaches you:
- How to support your immune system to defend against the onset of viral assaults (hint: In order to prevent a virus from invading, it takes what is called a “Th1 response,” which is difficult for many of us to mount).
- How to best fight a virus once it has invaded (hint: it’s important to activate your innate immune system, which includes natural killer cells).
- How to stop a virus from ramping up chronic inflammation or autoimmune flares, and vice versa (hint: chronic inflammation actually helps viruses to replicate, so it’s important to dampen it).
