I did some research so I thought I’ll share.
Next time you go to the doctor for Flu, you can refuse Antibiotics. I did.
I got this idea from my wife’s Gynecologist when she was pregnant and had Flu.
He said, “you don’t need antibiotics for Flu, and try not taking any medicine because with medicine you’ll get better in 7 days and without medicine you’ll get better in a week.
I asked, “What’s the difference?”
He replied, “Exactly... there is NO difference.”
All we need is just paracetamol to manage & relieve the symptoms of fever and muscle aches associated with the flu
Also, if you like Green Tea, you'll be glad to know that Green Tea is good for preventing Flu... so go ahead and enjoy it.
Antibiotics the Common Cold & influenza
"Antibiotics are not effective against viruses such as the common cold or influenza, and may be harmful when taken inappropriately."
~ Antibiotics from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
"Antibiotics and antivirals ~ Antibiotics have no effect against viral infections and thus have no effect against the viruses that cause the common cold. Due to their side effects, antibiotics cause overall harm, but are still frequently prescribed.Some of the reasons that antibiotics are so commonly prescribed include people's expectations for them, physicians' desire to help, and the difficulty in excluding complications that may be amenable to antibiotics. There are no effective antiviral drugs for the common cold even though some preliminary research has shown benefits."
~ Common Cold from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
"Treatment ~ Main article: Influenza treatment ~ People with the flu are advised to get plenty of rest, drink plenty of liquids, avoid using alcohol and tobacco and, if necessary, take medications such as acetaminophen (paracetamol) to relieve the fever and muscle aches associated with the flu. Children and teenagers withflu symptoms (particularly fever) should avoid taking aspirin during an influenza infection (especially influenza type B), because doing so can lead to Reye's syndrome, a rare but potentially fatal disease of the liver. Since influenza is caused by a virus, antibiotics have no effect on the infection; unless prescribed for secondary infections such as bacterial pneumonia. Antiviral medication may be effective, but some strains of influenza can show resistance to the standard antiviral drugs and there is concern about the quality of the research."

Green Tea ~ High dietary intake of Green Tea (specifically, catechins and theanine that is found in tea products) has been correlated with reduced risk of contracting influenza, as well as having an antiviral effect upon types A and B. Specifically, the high levels of epigallocatechin gallate, epicatechin gallate, and epigallocatechin present in green tea were found to inhibit influenza virus replication. Additionally, topical application has been suggested to possibly act as a mild disinfectant. Regular dietary intake of green tea has been associated with stronger immune response to infection, through the enhancement of T-Cell function.
