When it comes to respiratory infections, there is nothing like the advice of a good doctor to help make the medicine go down - and make it work. The Good Doctorís Guide to Colds & Flu is like having an on-call physician at the ready with prevention and treatment advice no one should be without.

All of the most common respiratory infections, such as colds and flus and infections of the sinuses, ears and throat, are covered in depth, with causes, symptoms and treatment plans that anyone can put into practice. This comprehensive book covers the differences between types of infections, the right way to use vitamin C and zinc, signs that a common cold might be turning into something far more serious, even who catches colds and why.

Common myths about colds and flus are busted, such as the long-held belief that you can catch a cold from kissing someone, and the author, who is a Professor of Pulmonary Medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, clears up old wives tales about how you do catch colds, flus and other infections, and the right way to treat them (you can feed a cold and a fever, if youíre hungry!).

There is also plenty of advice for people with allergies, people who smoke, and for those who have asthma and immune system problems that could turn a simple head cold into something far more difficult to treat. Natural remedies are examined, and there is even some common sense advice for those who are hesitant to get vaccinated for the flu.

The Good Doctorís Guide to Colds & Flu is a must-have for anyone who wants to try and keep the damage of the coming cold season to a minimum. It offers plenty of good medicine and solid advice for effective prevention and treatment that could save you and your family from unnecessary suffering and trips to the doctorís office. Thatís because the best medicine of all is knowledge. And a little chicken soup wonít hurt, either.
