About The H1N1 Virus

Knowledge is the best antidote to fear.

There are many things that we can do to protect ourselves against infection and viruses.

What are the signs and symptoms of the Virus H1N1 in people?
The symptoms are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with this flu. Severe illnesses (pneumonia and respiratory failure) and deaths have been reported with this virus. Like seasonal flu, it may cause a worsening of underlying chronic medical conditions. (It might be interesting for you to know that the "regular" flu, in the U.S. alone, killed approximately 36,000 people last year)

There are some emergency warning signs for children needing a report to the CDC.
In children, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include fast breathing or troubled breathing, blueish skin color, not drinking enough fluids, not waking up or not interacting, being so ill that the child does not want to be held, fever with a rash, or flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with a fever and worse cough.

What can we do to protect ourselves from getting sick?
There is no vaccine available right now to protect against the virus H1N1. There are everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that causes respiratory illnesses like influenza. Take these everyday steps to protect your health:

• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.

• Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

• If you get sick with influenza, CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.

Here are some of our favorite infection fighting remedies.

GARLIC
In our opinion, garlic is the king of natural infection fighters. Although it is useful for almost any type of infection, bacterial, yeast or viral, it excels at fighting infection in the respiratory and lymphatic systems.
One can also use GARLIC OIL caplets, both topically and internally.
You can also consider HIGH POTENCY GARLIC. Each tablet is equivalent to about four cloves of raw garlic in potency! This form of garlic is nice, since it doesn't produce the odor or the stomach upset of raw garlic. Don't be afraid to use as much as one high potency garlic tablet every two hours for a couple of days to clear up a problem.

For small children
Rub GARLIC OIL on your children's chests two or three times per day and give them a half dropperful of the contents of a soft gel capsule every 30 minutes for a couple of hours.
Apply GARLIC OIL on foot soles and cover with socks.

SILVER SHIELD
Next to garlic, our favorite antibiotic is colloidal silver (Silver Shield). A colloid is a microfine suspension of something in a solution. Silver has long been known to have a preserving and anti-bacterial action. A few years ago I learned that one of the ways to purify water is to put some silver coins in it. This is what the pioneers did to preserve their water in their barrels while traveling across the plains.
Silver Shield seems to work very well in fighting bacterial infection. We can keep SILVER SHIELD in our mouth for 2 minutes before swallowing.

OREGON GRAPE
Oregon Grape has long been used to fight infection. Oregon grape does not lower blood sugar levels like goldenseal.

ASTRAGALUS is a powerful immune system builder. It activates the production of Interferon in the liver. Interferon holds tightly to the surface of the body cells and causes them to produce the body's own antibodies (proteins) which kill viruses and viral infection. Astragalus repairs chronic lung problems.
