Viral infections and the fall season facts in Toronto and Hamilton

 

 

Overall picture

With the fall season coming soon on the doors, everyone in Canada is looking for the best means to protect self from the viral infections such as the cold and flu, influenza, viral bronchitis, and even from the recently reported outbreaks in the world such as meals and Ebola viruses. This article will discuss the extent of the problem of the viral infections in the fall season and all the related facts in Toronto and Hamilton.

 

Regarding the viral infections in the two big cities in Ontario and the GTA,   Toronto and Hamilton, it was found that the most common viral infection in these cities is the Influenza virus. This is according to the Public Health Ontario website updated August 17th 2019 https://www.publichealthontario.ca/en/data-and-analysis/infectious-disease/respiratory-pathogens-weekly

 

According to the last year 2018 report, Influenza A virus was the dominant type of viral infection in Toronto and Hamilton, and the total number of newly diagnosed influenza cases that year was 18,253 as compared to only 12,518 in the last years’ statistic (2017). The overall rate of influenza in Ontario was 128.3 cases per 100,000 population. The highest age group affected were those above 65 years old. 

In addition to the well-known symptoms of the viral infections such as weakness, fatigue, tiredness and sleepiness, patients with viral infections are liable to other problems such as chest infections, cough, pneumonia, encephalitis (brain infections), and very rarely death.

 

What are the drawbacks of viral infections?


 

How can we avoid viral infections?

 

Many people don’t believe that the best way to avoid viral infections and the flu is changing the food they eat. Eating lots of greens especially dark green leafy vegetables (such as cabbage, Brussel sprouts, Spinach and Kale can be very effective in preventing the colds and viral infections. On the other hand, eating excess carbohydrates and sugary food can weaken your immunity and makes you susceptible to viral infections.  Taking enough antioxidant supplements such as NAC (N Acetyl Cysteine, and Vitamin C) can be protective as well.

The problem happens when you could not or being unable to change your diet, so in this situation, what you can do? The solution is simple that you may not do all the necessary changes at once, you can start with one food item (e.g. adding more greens or fruits) then moving to the next item. You may need the help of the health care professional as a nutritionist or a naturopathic doctor.

 

How natural remedies help to treat flu or viral related illnesses?

 

Natural means to curb the symptoms related to the flu or viral infections are many such as giving oral multivitamins, dietary pieces of advice, inhalational glutathione and intravenous therapies.

Post flu cough is a very common problem and patients usually present with a nagging and lingering irritating cough that may or may not be followed by phlegm. Natural remedies for this persistent cough include inhalational natural remedies such as antioxidants and reducing agents.

Intravenous therapy with vitamin C and minerals is also another way to immediately control flu symptoms.
