Flu Season

Updated: Apr 7, 2020

The flu season is upon us. It’s actually been in full force for a while.

This year’s flu season seems to be worse than years past. Why would that be? Did too many people skip out on their flu shots?

The reason people get sick is that the immune system gets weakened. This can happen in a variety of ways: alcohol, negative thinking/stress, lack of exercise, eating junk food, etc. Without a strong immune system, you have no army to protect the body from invaders. This is when people catch the flu. The flu virus itself is not strong enough to penetrate the walls of a healthy and strong immune system. However, when that immune system is taxed, the flu virus can stroll right in.
