Influenza, commonly referred to as the flu, is an infectious disease caused by viruses. Even though it is similar to the common cold, its symptoms are more severe and pronounced. Influenza is primarily caused by a virus in the body. It spreads when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or even talks around others. It can easily spread by touching a surface like a telephone, keyboard or doorknob that has been contaminated and then from your hand to your nose or mouth. Breathing the air where a contagious person has been may also pass the flu onto you.
According to Ayurveda, Influenza results from an imbalance of the Kapha and VataDoshas (Ayurvedichumours representing Water and Air respectively). Cold develops in the body when there’s an excess of Kapha’s cool, moist characteristics, causing a stuffy or runny nose and sneezing. And, excess Vata reduces the body’s digestive fire, so you get the chills.
The Ayurvedic treatment of Influenza consists of pacifying the aggravated body energies, expelling excess mucus, restoring peripheral circulation, strengthening digestion and boosting immunity.
