BOOK REVIEW: Flu Fighters

Nutritionist and author Patrick Holford has kept himself extremely busy spending three weeks writing his new book Flu Fighters.

He asks the question we all want answers to: 

‘Why do some people get really sick, even die from flu, while others don’t?’

In Flu Fighters, Patrick takes us on a journey where he encourages us to take charge of our own health by understanding at a deeper level how our immune system responds.

Colds and flu are viral diseases that a healthy immune system should be able to fight off with natural immunity, says Patrick. But what is a healthy immune system and how can you promote your own immune power with diet and nutrients?

Patrick’s book answers these questions with clarity and integrity and gives you the information you need to win the cold war.

His book explains:

  • How viruses work and where are their weaknesses.
  • Why animals that make vitamin C rarely succumb to flu or colds.
  • The truth about vitamin C and how to use it when you’re infected.
  • How black elderberry blocks viral replication.
  • Why vitamin D levels crash in winter to make us more susceptible.
  • Other critical immune support nutrients from selenium to zinc.
  • How intravenous vitamin C saves lives in those with respiratory distress.

Readers will also discover how to restore and maintain a healthy immune system when not infected, complete with recipes for foods and drinks, and what to eat, drink and supplement when you are the body is under attack, to shorten duration and severity of colds and flu.


Patrick Holford is author of 37 books, including The 10 Secrets of Healthy Ageing and Improve Your Digestion. He is founder of the Food for the Brain Foundation and co-founded the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), an independent educational charity. He is an honorary fellow of the British Association of Nutritional Therapy, as well as a member of the Nutrition Therapy Council.

Patrick is frequently quoted in the media and presents lectures and workshops.
