  • Take Vitamin D. I SWEAR by it!! I am 300 lbs and I take 8,000 IU's daily. My kids take 1,000 IU's daily. My SO (162 lbs) takes 4,000 IU's daily. NONE of us have had the flu in 5 yrs and we have never ever taken the flu shot. We only take this supplement in the winter months as we don't get outside in the sunshine as much. We are very active outdoors in the warmer months. When you don't get Vitamin D as much you need to get it in other forms. Hope you feel better!

  • I have the flu. I've had it for about a week, and there's no sign of it going away anytime soon. I've had fever, chills, cough, headache and have been really, really tired.

  • Ours only lasted a couple of days and wasn't terrible. Fever, some coughing, aches, a little nauseous.

  • I agree with Babylove76. Vitamin D is key if fending off the flu in the winter months.
