We know that the winter months will bring cold and flu season and some unhealthy practices can weaken your immune system and make you more susceptible to illness. Your diet and sleep affect your ability to be healthy when you are faced with this challenge.
When experiencing a cold or flu like symptoms with menopause your body temperature fluctuates and you will need to monitor the temperatures so that you will be able to determine if you will need to go to an emergency hospital room.
Here are some points to consider when it comes to building your immune system.
- Help your immune system
- Smoking doesn't help it weakens your immune system
- Not getting the proper sleep
- Do not consume any substance abuse. (Alcohol or un-prescribe drugs)
- Keeping your stress level down
- Having a poor and unhealthy diet
- Having unhealthy sexual behaviors
- Not having an daily exercise program
- Being depressed will weaken your immune system
- Not getting the proper vaccines to prevent diseases
- Don't ignore your symptoms

From my experience with having this cold with flu like symptoms my body temperature fever with menopause wasn't easy for me to monitor. My recovery didn't kick in too soon simple because of me going through menopause and with my immune system being weak in various areas for me to fight off the virus.
I will conclude this post by saying that you should expect your recovery to be longer simply because your body has already gone through various changes due to you being in the stages of menopause.
