It’s that time of year. Changing seasons and fluctuating temperatures can wreak havoc on our bodies. Cold and flu season have always been problematic, but now you must add COVID to the mix, too. Can you really stay healthy during flu season? Here’s one sure way to improve your odds.

What flu season is like

·Every single year, there are around a BILLION cases of seasonal influenza in the world.

·Between 9-40 MILLION flu illnesses in the United States have occurred every year between 2010 and 2020.

·Three-five million cases of flu are severe, requiring hospitalizations.

·96.8% of adults over the age of 65 who get the flu require hospitalization.

·Between 12,000-52,000 people die annually due to the flu or respiratory illnesses caused by the virus.

Nobody wants to mess around with numbers like those! Nobody wants to feel rotten or miss a week or more of work. Nobody tries to pass the sickness on to other people, but it’s hard when you can’t see or smell it. Sometimes you don’t even know you have it until AFTER you’ve mingled with lots of other people.

COVID hasn’t disappeared

Most scientists are hopeful that the worst of COVID-19 is behind us. We now have both vaccines and a majority of the population now have antibodies in their systems.

COVID, however, hasn’t disappeared and can still present a danger.

Wastewater monitoring has shown an uptick in recent months, and new variants have been found. “Eris,” EG.S.1, and “Fornax,” FL.1.5.1 are newly discovered.

There is no good way to know if further mutations will happen and whether or not those mutations will be more or less virulent or contagious than other strains.

The reality of the common cold

There’s probably not a person on the face of the earth who hasn’t suffered from a cold. (That’s why it’s called the “COMMON” cold!

The American Lung Association notes that colds, while not as severe as the flu, can still cause discomfort and problems:

  • In the United States, colds account for more visits to the doctor than any other condition.
  • Colds can last for a week, but colds in children and the elderly can linger on much longer.
  • The average adult gets two to four colds per year, usually between September and May.
  • Colds spread with speed and ease when they’re transferred by droplets of fluid via touch or inhalation.

The triple whammy

The late parts of 2022 and the early months of 2023 were bad ones for illnesses. Numbers rose in cases of the flu, RSV, and COVID, posing a triple whammy threat.

RSV is the acronym for “respiratory syncytial” virus. It’s a common virus that causes cold-like symptoms. However, RSV was especially bad last season causing severe problems in infants and young children. As with many illnesses, the very young and the elderly were most at risk for serious issues following an RSV infection last year.

We can only hope that the upcoming cold and flu season will NOT be as threatening as last year’s triple whammy!

One sure way to improve your odds

Believe it or not, colds don’t have to be quite so “common.”

RSV can be eradicated in your home. You can eliminate COVID germs at your home.
