Information to Prepare for Swine Flu Virus€"H1N1€"Outbreak (Part 2)
Continuing with information to prepare for the H1N1 virus, swine flu, outbreak, the first task you face is to build up your immune system. In the first part 1 discussed using elderberry concentrate, also known as sambucus. You can use elderberry in liquid, pill or extract form. Remember before you begin any medicinal regime, natural or otherwise, you should always consult your physician.
Â Part 2 will contain outbreak information of swine flu, H1N1 virus to prepare you in case you do contract it, and what you might consider as your next step in your personal line of defenseâ¬"probiotics. As you use the elderberry concentrate daily, use probiotics, too. You can find probiotics online or at most health stores.
Â The probiotics you are looking for are made up of specific strains. Be sure the probiotics has â¬ÅB. bifdum and L. acidophilus and L. bulgaricus in them. These strains in probiotics have proven to work best as an overall health preventive.
Â However, if symptoms do show up, you might consider the following. Diffuse essential oils. It will clear germs out of the air. Put diffuser in the living room or den while everyone is together. Diffuse essential oils through out the areas you spend the most time in. It's good for your pets, too.
Â Other things you might consider are to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Eat chicken soup for electrolytes, and get plenty of rest. Sanitize your hands often, and teach your children to do the same.
Â Now also is the time to use Echinecia. Although Echinecia does build the immune system, I don't recommend taking the herb Echinecia for the long term, only short term, once flu symptoms set in.
Follow instructions on the package label, and you can take Echinecia for seven days. Don't stop after two or three doses. As with any medicine, take it for the intended time frame. Do not give Echinecia to children! Be sure to check with your physician before you begin taking it.
Â Use the information to prepare yourself before swine flu, H1N1 virus has an outbreak. Use probiotics as your the first line of defense. They also have numerous functions such as helping us digest our food and creating serotonin. Take them as directed to build the immune system in preparation for the flu season. Probiotics are available in pills, chewable, liquid and dairy-free. As always, eat healthy my friends.
