Western Diagnosis

Influenza or the flu is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract that is highly contagious, attacking anyone with lowered resistance.

In the initial stages, the symptoms of influenza are much the same as the common cold and include headache, fatigue and body aches.

As the virus progresses, a fever and/or chills may be present, along with dry throat, cough, nausea and vomiting.

The complications of influenza include laryngitis, bronchitis and possibly pneumonia if the infection enters the lower respiratory system.
