Swine flu Could ‘Explode’ in Fall
The United States and other northern countries are bracing for a second wave of swine flu infections that could sicken millions of people and contribute to the hospitalization and deaths of thousands, including many children and young adults.
While flu viruses are notoriously capricious, making any firm predictions impossible, a second wave could hit the Northern Hemisphere within weeks and lead to major disruptions in schools, workplaces and hospitals, according to U.S. and international health officials.
Since emerging last spring in Mexico, the virus, known as H1N1, has spread to at least 168 countries, causing more than 162,000 confirmed cases and playing a role in at least 1,154 deaths, including 436 in the United States.
 “Everyone recognizes that H1N1 is going to be a challenge for all of us, and there are people who are going to be getting sick in the fall and die,” said John Brennan, the U.S. deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security. “The strategy and the effort on the part of the governments is to make sure we ... collaborate to minimize the impact.”
As the first flu pandemic in 41 years spread through the Southern Hemisphere’s winter over the last few months, scientists have been closely monitoring the virus for clues to how much of a threat it might pose this fall. So far, no signs have emerged that the microbe has mutated into a more dangerous form. Most people who get infected seem to experience relatively mild illness.
The virus could cause nothing more than a typical flu season. But many experts suspect the second wave could be more severe than an average flu season, which hospitalizes an estimated 200,000 Americans and contributes to 36,000 deaths. Because the virus is new, most people have no immunity against it. The virus has continued to affect children and young adults much more commonly than typical flu viruses.
“This epidemic will transmit faster than usual, because the population is more susceptible,” said Marc Lipsitch, a professor of epidemiology who has been helping the CDC project the severity of the upcoming wave. “It’s fair to say there will be tens of millions of illnesses and hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations, and tens of thousands of deaths. What we don’t know is how many tens of thousands.”

Dr. Iverson's Comment
 
It's that season again and hopefully this flu will not be any more virulent than it was last year. We can at least prepare in the event that this flu mutates or another more virile one comes around.
 
Here are some ideas to make sure you are in optimal health and avoiding the chances that you get the flu. You want to be in your best health before you come down with the illness.
 
1)    Get 8-10 hours of sleep nightly
2)    Drink 2-3 liters of water daily
3)    Avoid processed and packaged foods and junk foods and restaurant foods
4)    Eliminate dairy, wheat, sugar, and soy products
5)    Increase veggies to 50% of each plate or more
6)    Provide good quality free range or organic animal protein 3 ounces per meal

7)    Walk daily in the fresh air

8)   Make sure you are having bowel movements 2-3 times daily, consider Colonic Hydrotherapy

9)    Avoid stressful situations which will lower immunity

10)  Avoid closed environments particularly public places

11) Wash your hands often (cover your mouth too if you are coughing)

12) Hydrotherapy like hot saunas and cool rinses improve circulation

13) Consider supplements: cod liver oil, vitamin D, vitamin C, and good quality multi vitamin

14) Take VIREX (herbal anti-viral) regularly during the season

 

These are just a few on the forefront that can be done at home for prevention. If you come down with flu-like symptoms see your health provider or TRILIUM HEALTH immediately to treat the condition before it worsens.
 
Keep yourself healthy this season!
