What is Influenza and how is it caused?

Influenza or ‘the flu’, as it is commonly called, is a viral infection that attacks three organs of your respiratory tract – nose, throat and lungs. However, it’s not to be confused with stomach ‘flu’ which is more about diarrhoea and vomiting.

In most cases, influenza recedes within a short span of time, from a few days to few weeks. But sometimes, the flu lasts longer than usual and could result in further complications.

Let us now look at its various types, symptoms and causes, and how homeopathy provides the apt treatment for curing influenza.
