Taking antibiotics without a doctor’s prescription for the flu may not contribute to recovery, but, on the contrary, harm health. This was announced by Rospotrebnadzor in an article on influenza and measures for its prevention. Text published on the website of the department.

“Taking antibiotics in the early days of the flu is a big mistake. Antibiotics are not able to cope with the virus, and besides, they kill the normal microflora and weaken the immune system, ”the press service explained.

The WHO reminded of the inability of the influenza vaccine to protect against COVID-19

The department also emphasized that antibiotics are prescribed by doctors only in case of complications caused by the addition of a bacterial infection.

The best way to avoid infection is through a vaccination procedure. Rospotrebnadzor explained that the composition of the drug changes annually in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Organization. The most favorable months for the procedure are September-November.


Well-being in body and soul

According to an investigation by the University of the Basque Country (Spain) on the effects of the pandemic, now there is greater uncertainty and concern about suffering from Covid-19 or losing loved ones; a decrease in confidence and optimism, especially in women and in people in poor employment situations; and an increase in irritability, again with a greater impact on women and the unemployed.

If we do not act now, in concert with research with vaccines and treatments, the post-pandemic outlook will be bleak for the mental health of millions of people.

And taking action, obviously, is not prescribing more antidepressants or anxiolytics, or building more psychiatric hospitals. Both actions are necessary to address some consequences; however, the idea is to be proactive and avoid them.

In response to the feeling of anxiety, according to the consulting firm Llorente y Cuenca (LLYC), there has been a rapid and broad change that goes from the “concept of wellness [bienestar], centered on the individual, al by wellbeing [bienestar integral], a more holistic vision that includes different people and sectors of our societies ”.

What does this mean? A call for the participation of the whole society in the benefits of well-being.

Wellbeing is defined as the state of satisfaction and tranquility that a person presents, thanks to their good physical and mental conditions.

“If societies and companies are unable to focus holistically on people’s well-being (including physical, emotional and spiritual health), it will be almost impossible to create safety nets that allow citizens to return to work and be productive ”, They explain from LLYC.

For this reason, I have always opted for wellness programs in all their aspects: emotional, physical, social and financial. This is what happens every November in the event “In Body and Soul”, which this year will be held in an online version, with more universal access, more experts and with the empowering and transforming energy of always.

To keep your balance in difficult times, “you have to grab the bull by the horns” and get going, as a popular saying reflects.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the pandemic has disrupted or paralyzed mental health services in 93% of countries. And if, as the WHO itself says, mental health is related to the promotion of well-being, the prevention of mental disorders and treatment, then let’s look for our own tools. Healthy living is much more than curing or protecting yourself from disease.
