    There’s been a flu epidemic in the UK and quite a few people have been hospitalised or even died this season. For the acupuncturists in the forum, is there any thing in eastern medicine to prevent or tips if we have caught a flu?

    The basics that even NHS advises is good to go off. Don’t exert yourself, take paracetamol every 4 hours, drink plenty of water etc.
    From an eastern perspective, I’d also say stay out of the cold and wind. Though you might feel hot from a fever and layer down a bit to cool off, don’t start opening windows or going outside without being properly covered. Cover the feet and make sure you are eating nutritious food regularly – something like bone broth is great.

    I heard about the Japanese flu killing quite a few people in the UK. Scary that there is an epidemic.

    I’ve been floored from the flu for the past 3 days with a recurring fever. Not sure what to do as I’m doing all the usual things.
