Short Description: 
The Flu: Natural Approaches to Preventing and Treating the Flu

Have you noticed how people are getting sick earlier this winter and staying sick longer? According to the New York Times "the country is in the grip of three emerging flu or flulike epidemics: an early start to the annual flu season with an unusually aggressive virus, a surge in a new type of norovirus, and the worst whooping cough outbreak in 60 years."

Today's guest Dr. Gary Weiner, naturopathic physician, licensed acupuncturist, and founder of Pearl Natural Health in downtown Portland, discusses natural approaches to improving immunity during the flu season and how best to treat the flu once you have it.
