Fatigue and flu

An intense feeling of exhaustion is common when suffering from flu

Echinacea is a traditional herb known to aid the body in its fight against colds and flu by supporting the immune system – but not all Echinacea is the same! Research shows that the fresher the herb, the more effective the remedy will be, which is why our Echinaforce cold and flu remedies are made using freshly harvested Echinacea.

      Hello Babs. Many people report that persisting tiredness is a feature of this winter's flu. Taking a magnesium supplement such as the A.Vogel Balance drink can help the recovery process. www.avogel.co.uk/food/products/balance-mineral-drink/

    I was diagnosed with the flu last Wednesday and started Tamiflu the same day and finished the last dose Sunday. I never had a fever or major body aches but now, a week later, I'm exhausted. I'm still coughing and have nasal congestion. I'm hoping this all goes away very soon.

      Hello Janice. Fatigue and a lingering cough are two features of the current batch of viruses doing the rounds. If you are considering taking something to help, it is our experience that using Echinaforce, even at this stage, can help you recover faster and I would suggest that you take the tincture at a dose of 20 drops three times daily. I hope you will soon feel better. www.avogel.co.uk/herbal-remedies/echinacea-echinaforce/

      Thank you for replying. I live in the US so I'm not sure if I can purchase.

      Hello Kelly. I presume that the tiredness you report has followed a viral infection. We are seeing this quite a bit with the current batch of viruses doing the rounds. Symptoms should gradually improve and to help speed recovery, some have found that a magnesium supplement such as in the A.Vogel Balance drink helpful. The link below might be of help to you. www.avogel.co.uk/food/products/balance-mineral-drink/
