FUSION HEALTH - Colds, Flu & Immune Health

Healthy management of colds, flu and immune health is an inside job

In Chinese herbal medicine ‘prevention’ is valued more highly than ‘cure’. When illness does happen, it is important to respect nature’s best remedy of rest, healthy food and plenty of fluids. In addition to this, supporting the immune system through each stage of illness can encourage prompt and effective recovery and may help reduce incidence of reinfection. For the resistance stage of illness; we recommend the use of protective adaptogenic herbs to encourage a healthy immune response to infection. As part of the acute stage; colds, flus and infections demand immune stimulants for symptom relief and active healing. Through the convalescent stage of illness; supporting a healthy immune system with nourishing immune tonics is important to nurture a proper recovery. At Fusion® Health we have combined thousands of years of empirical knowledge with scientific clinical evidence to support your immune system through infection and well into recovery.

Bronchitis & Cough A cough can be a productive phlegmy cough or unproductive dry or congested cough. May also present with fever, congestion, bronchial discomfort, fatigue, lethargy and infection
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Unexplainable fatigue that persists for at least six months maybe accompanied by cognitive problems, muscle pain, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, joint pain, headaches

Hay fever & Sinusitis Runny or stuffed up nose, repeated bouts of sneezing, and itchiness of the nose, throat and/or roof of the mouth, blood shot and watery eyes, ears may feel congested also. Sinusitis may cause facial pain and tenderness over the affected areas, sometimes accompanied by headache, earache or toothache. A cough maybe present from post nasal drip and a fever if the sinuses are infected
Immune System Weakness Recurrent mild infection and sore throat, swollen lymph glands, persistent cough, reduced vitality
Sore Throat Pain, redness and inflammation of the mucous membranes of the throat

Here’s what Chinese medicine has to say about the Immune System

  • A cold or flu is a battle lost between your immune system and a pathogen. A person can catch a cold or flu when your Defensive Qi is overthrown by Pathogenic Wind that may initiate an infection.
  • A cold or flu may present in both cold (no fever) and hot (fever) stages of upper respiratory infections, with or without sputum (damp).
  • To fight off infection, one must expel Wind and clear cold and heat to promote recuperation.
