I have been very lucky. I am 60 soon 61 and I've never had the flu. My brother has never had the flu but two other sisters have. None of my children have ever had the flu either.
Could some people just have natural resistence? Given all the strains? I seldom get colds either. Actually I hardly ever get sick at all. I do get spasms in my back that just spontaneously occurs every few years that lays me up for a week or more and I get ear infections occasionally but I swim so it's swimmers ear caused by bacteria in the ocean.

Zinc lessens the duration of the flu. It is essential to our immune system. Taking one of those bigger iodine supplements for a couple of days when the flu comes around can cause an increase of iodine in the mucus and Iodine kills most flues and bacteria. If you have a bacterial overload, it can possibly make a massive dieoff. so watch it, maybe taking a smaller iodine supplement in a mineral complex or multivitimin might keep the microbes at lower levels. Iodine also kills microbes like candida, I do not know why the medical industry does not mention that. Some people can get a problem from too much iodine, starting low dose is preferential. Some people who are intolerant to ocean fish might actually be intolerant to iodine, but that is rare.

All I know is when I get sick like this the only comforting thing I can find is a scalding hot shower or bath, think like 1st degree burn type of stuff.

In my opinion - 'they' - are systematically killing us off.
Back when social security came into play the life of an average American was 67.
If you retired at 65 - not much to pay huh?

This flu epidemic doesn’t have to be altered in a lab to act this way. The Spanish Flu from 100 years ago was a natural mutation- and we are due for another pandemic.
It’s Mother Nature thinning us out.

I do believe some people have a natural resistance due to each individuals immune system, it's really just something that is different for everyone. Some people have more resilient immune systems... Seems to run in families too from what I've noticed.

I'll type You what.. I had this "Flu" and it had been 24 years since I had anything more than a cold or if it was 'more than a cold' I'd take some antibiotics, usually the ones from the Vet (they are the same) This time I started getting sick on Super Bowl Sunday, by Thur. I wasn't feeling any better and had taken all the green/blk. antibiotics so off to "Quick Care™ concierge doctoring, so the local E.R. doesn't get swamped. I finally started feeling better 10 days later and AFTER taking all the Tamiflu™.
The absolute worst part was My older 'bitch' (the only time this word is appropriate) laid by My side while I was sick and She too wouldn't eat and only took water, now Her kidneys are shutting down and the only thing We can do is feed Her fluids via an IV..
I have absolutely NO DOUBT that in some lab. BigPHarma™ is cooking up next year's batch of 'Flu'..
Remember 'Ebola' and that even came w/a neon green/shocking yellow combo color-- Think I'm kidding? Bing™ or let "THEM" read Your crap and Google™ "Ebola Green tee shirt" and see what pops up..

You make it sound like we have a choice in this. To get antibiotics in the UK your doctor has to write a prescription for it i.e. you cannot just walk into a chemist to buy it.

The flu virus is constantly mutating, we can't cure it so we use vaccines and antibiotics to try and stop it, the more of that rubbish we use the more the virus mutates, it's only a matter of time till a strain will wipe out millions maybe billions of people like in the Steven king story the stand.
