The arrival of autumn means not only the passage from a hot season to one in which it is already starting to get cold and bad weather begins. It also means the dreaded arrival of one of the most common infectious diseases during these months: the so-called seasonal flu.

Although it is true that the common flu is present practically at any time of the year, it is during the cold seasons of autumn or winter when the so-called seasonal epidemic appears, which makes an appearance in temperate regions.

Although anyone can get the flu, there are certain risk groups that should be given the flu vaccine, especially because they are at higher risk of serious or severe complications.

Although the vaccine is a useful medical option to reduce the risk of contagion, it is also essential to know that there are certain tips that help prevent the flu in a completely natural, healthy and healthy way.

First of all, it can be very helpful to know how to increase your defenses, which will help you strengthen your immune system in a natural and healthy way.

In any case, contagion is prevented above all by maintaining basic hygiene habits, such as those that we propose in the following lines:

  • Wash your hands regularly, especially several times a day, especially when you sneeze or cough on them, or every time you go outside.
  • Cover your mouth or nose when you are going to cough or sneeze.
  • Try to always use disposable tissues, and then put them in a plastic bag, throwing them away immediately.
  • Try to cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow, which helps keep your hands clean and helps prevent spreading the flu to others.
  • Ventilate rooms, common spaces and the house itself daily.
  • Frequently clean surfaces and those objects of common use.
  • Follow a balanced diet, rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. They will help you maintain good health and increase your defenses.
  • Practice physical exercise regularly.

If despite following these basic hygiene tips you catch the flu, you need to know that its symptoms usually disappear within a week. Otherwise, it is advisable to go to your doctor to prescribe the most appropriate treatment.
