Why is it that some people are easily affected by the change in the climate and some are not. Apart from low immunity and allergies is there anything else that is equally responsible for the cold and flu?

Hi Pooja! Yes there are many more causative factors. Like - the season & abrupt atmospheric temperature changes, pollution, the area you live in can be over-exposed to more cold viruses, genes, existing lung issues or respiratory issues in general, age is a factor too. Sometimes lifestyle can be a reason too, like some of us dress less warm in winter, or drink or eat cold beverages & desserts etc.

Hey Pooja! I would like to share the Ayurvedic approach here. By birth, we have 1 out of 3 prakritis ( Vata , Pitta, kapha). All these prakriti has balance characteristics and imbalance characteristics. People who are Kapha prakriti if their Kapha is imbalanced then they usually get cold. I am sure you have read about this๐Ÿ˜
