In brief: Yes

Anyone can et the flu.
Eating fresh foods and as much organic as possible help boost the immune system. Exercise, plenty of fluids, and proper sleep can help as well. Cod liver oil and probiotics also can help reduce susceptibility as can vitamin d. There are homeopathic remedies and chinese herbs that can boost the immune system or treat the flu..Find a practitioner in your area.
