my hair is always falling out, i have low energy levels, low libido, major mood swings and I'm not even ovulating! Guess the next step is some medication to get me back on track! Hang in there girls!

12) i am also having same problems - depression,mood swings,loss of hair,weight gain. In my case I have developed dermoid and endometrium thickness, PCOD. Even after consulting two or three doctors and taking medicines for one year, things did not improve. Now I have switched to homeopathy and is finding some improvement. As it's just one month since I started taking medicines, I am hoping for some positive results.

11) My first pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage. The doctor monitored my levels with second pregnancy to keep from miscarrying. I also had to take the progesterone with my third pregnancy because levels were actually lower than the doctor wanted.

I now have diabetes and hypothyroidism and after reading the above info I am wondering if my progesterone has something to do with those two health issues.

I have issues that really bring me to a conclusion of PMDD. I am going to make an appointment with my doctor to see if the progesterone has anything to do with my diabetes and hypothyroidism as well as needing to find some help with the symptoms that coincide with PMDD as they are ruining my life!

10) Same case with me. i used to have so much tension and I always had bad moods. I have started taking medicines since last week but still i don't feel much change.

9) I am in the process of being testing for low hormone levels and thyroid dysfunction because, quite tragically, I've lost at least half of my hair in one month! I'm only 32 and feel like I'm having a nightmare!

I tell myself things could be much worse, but dealing with hair drastically, severely, suddenly falling out everywhere is emotionally exhausting. Has anyone else had this? What do I do?

8) I had all these symptoms of depression: panic attacks, hot flashes, insomnia, fuzzy thinking, and I was tired of seeing doctors and them not helping me with my problems.

So they recommended to me this female doctor and she tested my levels of progesterone and i was very low, so now she is treating me my progesterone. I feel a little better now. I have been treated for three months now but I know this medication is going to help me.

7) Because male doctors are often not attuned to female symptoms or concerns. The best help might come from a specialist in bioidentical hormones.

I went to a female specialist who knows exactly the issues women face in menopause and has reversed these to good results with both men and women.

Seek beyond the standard help and you will get better, healthier results. Often the conservative male doctor just wants to put you on depression meds and chemical manufactured hormones. Don't do it!

6) I stopped taking the pill so we could get pregnant and it threw my body off and my periods are not regular, so my doctor did a blood test and said my progesterone levels are very low! Yea! Finally I have a answer. I have a lot of these symptoms and can't wait to feel normal again!

5) Women who have low levels of progesterone often have infertility problems and when they do conceive, they are at a higher risk for miscarriage. You may have low progesterone levels if you have any of these symptoms.

4) We finally tested my levels. I barely produce progesterone. Depression, practically no libido, metabolic basal rate that is lower than normal, hair loss (scalp and eyebrows), mental fog.

Wenn wir krank sind mit einer Virusinfektion, ist es, weil das Virus in Zellen in unserem Körper eingegeben und übernommen ihre Maschinen, um Kopien von sich selbst zu machen. Die Suche nach Möglichkeiten, diesen Prozess zu stören, ist wichtig für die antivirale Arzneimittelentwicklung. Jetzt zeigt eine neue Studie, wie das Grippevirus auf ein Protein in der Wirtszelle angewiesen ist, um ihm zu helfen, seine Mission zu vollenden.

You can also catch flu by touching an infected person, for instance, shaking hands. Adults are contagious 1-2 days before getting symptoms and up to 7 days after becoming ill. This means that you can spread the influenza virus before you even know you are infected.

In this article, we explain the symptoms of flu, how it is treated, how it differs from a cold, and the best ways to prevent flu occurring.

Here are some key points about flu. More detail and supporting information is in the main article.

  • Antibiotics cannot be used to treat flu.
  • Approximately 5-20 percent of Americans will develop flu.
  • Experts agree that the best way to prevent flu is to get vaccinated each year.
  • The flu vaccine is not suitable for certain groups of people, such as those who have a severe allergy to chicken eggs.

Confusing flu with a bad cold is common. Flu and cold symptoms may both include a runny/blocked nose, sore throat, and cough.

To help you tell them apart, below are some symptoms of flu that are different from a heavy cold:

  • high temperature
  • cold sweats and shivers
  • headache
  • aching joints and limbs
  • fatigue, feeling exhausted

There may also be gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea; these are much more common among children than adults.

Normally, symptoms linger for about 1 week. However, the feeling of tiredness and gloom can continue for several weeks.

It is worth noting that not every person with flu will have all of the symptoms; for instance, it is possible to have flu without fever.

Often, fatigue is one of the earliest signs of flu and cold. With flu, the fatigue is often more extreme. Other early symptoms can include cough, sore throat, fever, body ache, chills, and gastrointestinal changes.

As flu is caused by a virus, antibiotics cannot help, unless the flu has led to another illness caused by bacteria. Antivirals, such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza), may be prescribed in some circumstances.

Painkillers can alleviate some of the symptoms, such as headache and body pains. Various painkillers are available to purchase online. It is important to compare different products, and only take them under the advice of a medical professional.

Some painkillers, such as aspirin, should not be given to children under 12.

Individuals with flu should:

  • stay at home
  • avoid contact with other people where possible
  • keep warm and rest
  • consume plenty of liquids
  • avoid alcohol
  • stop smoking
  • eat if possible

It is a good idea for people that live alone to tell a relative, friend, or neighbor that they have flu and make sure someone can check in on them.

A doctor only needs to be informed if:

  • the individual is frail or elderly
  • their temperature remains high after 4-5 days
  • symptoms worsen
  • the individual feels seriously ill
  • they become short of breath and/or develop chest pain

Today I had a couple cans…I guess tomorrow starts the detox. So not looking forward to it:-( I’m nervous:-/

Day three off Diet Coke for me. I’ve really bad headaches, blurry vision, stiff neck, irritable mood, constipation and general lethargy. I’ve been severely addicted for about 6 years now and am ready to be rid of this poison, which is all I can think to call it. I’m almost positive it’s responsible for a lot of my pain and inflammation, and am hoping once the withdrawal symptoms die down, I’ll notice an improvement in certain areas of my health. It makes me feel so awful when I go off it, I can’t imagine what it’s doing to my body!

I have been consuming diet coke for over ten years at about 400-600 oz a day am trying to make it thru third day cold turkey and the headaches dont stop im to the point of tears didnt think i would notice the caffiene withdraw but i cant seem to stay awake much outside work hating myself and should have listened to ppl along time ago

For years I have been hearing terrible things about aspartame and diet sodas, and unfortunately, did not give it a lot of thought. I so wish that I had been paying attention because over the last 15 years I have developed arthritis and it has gotten worse. It started in my left knee, then my fingers have started swelling. I have gone to doctors about my joint pain, and have asked if diet soda was a factor, and I was told no. It may be because they do not realize how much of it I drink. I am going to stop drinking Diet Coke. I drink two to four 12oz. cans per day. I should probably reduce to maybe one per day, so that I can wean away from it. I will miss the carbonation the most. I can switch to iced tea with lemon.

I do on occasion get headaches, and it probably is from the aspartame. I also get frequent flare ups with my arthritis. The pain has gone to arms. It is sometimes hard to move when I want to turn over when I sleep. I drank some diet coke with splenda. Besides not tasting that good, it gave me a bad migraine for three days. So, I don’t drink that anymore. I am happy to read on some posts that some of you have said that since quitting aspartame that symptoms have diminished. I hope that the aspartame did not do so much permanent damage that the effects can be reversed. That would be an incentive to use aspartame anymore.

Hi Guys, I was very worried when I saw these comments but just recently I had to visit our imminent Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Australia, I was lucky enough to be treated by one of our best specialist in Australia. I told him about my habit of drinking too much Coke Zero and prior to that Tab, Diet Coket etc. He told me not to worry and that I should continue to drink it, that there are many theories re Aspartame as far as he was concerned it was A OK..

Doctors typically have very little training on diet. Not sure why this is, but it is a bad place to get food related advice (my researched opinion).

I agree. Doctors get very little class time on nutrition. Keep in mind the FDA was the one that approved aspartame despite all the evidence against it, and if you research how it was approved it will surpise and appall you. Keep in mind the FDA pushes through drugs every year, that after enough people die, they take it off the market. They’ve even confirmed that the Gulf War Disease was to due to Diet Coke that was heated by sitting in the sun. When it comes to things like this, listen to your body.

I think I’m still clearing the effects of aspartame out of my body and I quit drinking it over 7 months ago. I did wean myself off of it slowly, slowly reducing it from 6 cans down to one can a day for the last five days before quitting for good. I drink plain seltzer water for the carbonation. It doesn’t have any sugar or artificial sweetners. LaCroix is an example of this, but I buy the store brand because it’s half the cost.

Wow, it is actually very good news to see someone else has experienced anxiety as a result of withdrawing from Aspartame! I quit cold turkey after a 1.5L a day diet coke routine that ran for about 6 years, because of the anxiety I suspected it was causing at the end, and the symptoms of withdrawal seem to be INCREASED and MORE FREQUENT anxiety. I’m hoping my brain chemistry can recover SOON because the anxiety/lack of confidence/down moods are pure H*LL! Thanks for having such a blog for this substance!

I told a few people about having to quit aspertame. Going through the withdrawels during work has been tough.
I have to push myself to work. Going through being so tired that all I want to do is sleep. Going through the headaches, body aches, and trying to stay focused to do my job has been tough.
It has been two weeks now and I still don’t feel back to normal.
Although a lot of the symptoms has have not come on as strong. The numbess in my fingers and legs is gone.
I am not as tired. I still get the little rush that feels like a shock is going through my brain, if that makes sense.
My gums would tingle and feel numb at times when I was drinking soda. It has almost stopped now. My ears are still ringing. But time will tell.
I hope it gets better soon. 🙂

My ears ring also and I have been asked by doc if I drink a lot of caffeine. Ringing of the ears, anxiety and my body fat probably being mostly from the effects of caffeine, aspartame and sodium in the diet coke should give me more then enough reason to quit. Not to mention that I would probably be in much better health over all. My body is so very sensitive to any change so I try the weaning but once I can down to just say a can a day the cravings start hitting hard again. I also can relate to someone else saying that their self confidence takes a hit.

Hello all..I have been a diet Dr. Pepper addict for ten years. I consumed at least a liter a day. I have kicked the habit for over a month and yes the withdrawals were terrible! I now have noticed a decrease in the severe fibro pain I suffered from daily but sadly I know this drug, and it is a drug in so many ways, has caused permanent damage. It has now been cleared to be used in non diet products as well so be careful…this includes gum and lower fat coffee creamer. I am amazed in all it is in and it’s for the addictive qualities. I will never willingly consume this product again or any other that has the one of aspartames many aliases. A month out and I can say I am thrilled to be free of something more addictive for me than even smoking was! Hang in there because it is so worth detoxifying! Also the water flavoring products contain artificial sweeteners as well….I couldn’t find one, including non diet, that was free of these toxins. Good luck and I wish you all the best of life and health!

On a side note my sugar cravings sky rocketed at first but only for the first two weeks and now I am swollen far less often and have begun to lose weight. I can also actually taste food again…this was the first thing I noticed! It altered my ability to truly taste all food! My skin condition and coloring improved as well…these changes felt dramatic in that I hadn’t realized the negative change and had grown accustomed. This stuff should be taken off the market, but it’s big business that is guaranteed loyal users due to addiction.

I have quit Diet Soda and Sweet n Low for iced tea and just a few days ago chewing gum. I had major headaches for a week, still have some but not as painful. My high blood pressure has come down a great deal. This web site has been most helpful for me! Thank you so much for all the comments and encouragement. I am determined to keep up the determination to better my health. Good luck to those just starting your journey of omitting this bad poison.

Giving up diet dr pepper for lent (thus today is day two) and hopefully giving it up forever. Have given it up before, but have always slowly picked it back up. It has way too much control over me, when I want to be free instead to follow God, to be at my best, and to do what is right!:/ Amazed at how strong its power can be. And now the withdrawl…I was completely exhausted last night, turned in early (something I very rarely do) and then overslept. When I did get up, felt light-headed, just as exhausted as the night before, “not right,” fuzzy-headed, and then developed a bad headache. A friend suggested trying L-Tryptophan to help with withdrawl. I thought I’d be fine, bc I was very mentally prepared to give this up. Interestingly, I do not crave a ddp – perhaps because I’ve gone cold turkey and it is not an option, but was not even anticipating a withdrawl outside of a potentially strong craving. This has caught me off guard, and demonstrates how badly I needed to cut it out of my life. Thanks for your helpful site.

Avoid taking medication that includes identical ingredients at the same time. For instance, do not take Tylenol ® and Tylenol ® Sinus together because both these medicines contain acetaminophen.

In certain cases, your doctor may prescribe antiviral medicine to reduce the duration and severity of your symptoms. This type of medication is most effective when taken at the onset of an infection.

If your child is over 3 months old and has a fever, you may give him or her acetaminophen such as Tylenol ®, following instructions given and according to your child’s weight.

Avoid giving children and adolescents acetylsalicylic acid such as aspirin. Such medication can lead to a serious disease of the brain and liver known as ‘Reye's Syndrome’ in children and adolescents with the flu.

The flu can lead to certain complications, including:

  • Dehydration due to sweating caused by fever
  • Pneumonia
  • Bronchitis
  • Sinusitis
  • Otitis

For people considered more vulnerable to sickness, certain complications can lead to hospitalisation or even death.

The following people are most at risk of complications:

  • Children younger than 5 years old
  • People with chronic diseases
  • Pregnant women
  • Women who gave birth in the last 4 weeks
  • People aged 65 years and over

If you or your child are among people most at risk of complications and have symptoms of the flu, call Info-Santé 811. A nurse will evaluate your health and make recommendations based on your condition.

The flu virus lives best in fresh and dry areas. It can live up to 2 days on contaminated objects or up to 5 minutes on skin.

The flu virus is very contagious. It is spread quickly from person to person in the following ways:

  • By droplets sprayed through the mouth or nose by an infected person when they cough or sneeze
  • By direct contact with secretions from the nose or throat from a person with the flu, when kissing for instance
  • When you bring your hand to your nose, mouth or eyes after shaking the hand of someone infected or touching contaminated objects

5 heart attack symptoms in women that should be talked about more

Health and wellness information including aging, stress, women's health, nutrition, sleep, and more at

The warning signs of a heart attack most women are missing

We can blame it on everything we've seen on TV, but as women, most of us make the mistake of assuming that heart attacks only happen to men. But you might be shocked to learn that heart disease remains the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S.

According to the CDC, heart disease fatalities affect men and women equally. And even worse, almost two-thirds of the women who die suddenly from heart disease don't experience any previous symptoms. This "silent killer" is responsible for roughly one in four female deaths.

According to Dr. William Daniel, leading cardiologist and chief medical officer of software provider Emerge Clinical Solutions, heart disease is even more dangerous to women because symptoms of a heart attack are often different for women than men. Worse, most women don’t know the symptoms or attribute warning signs to stress or general fatigue. Knowing the signs of an attack, says Dr. Daniel, is the first major step toward preventing heart attacks from being America’s No. 1 killer in women.

Chest pain may seem like an obvious symptom of heart attack, but in reality symptoms are much more subtle and easy to ignore. We’ve all seen Hollywood heart attacks involving dramatic chest-clutching and sudden collapse, but for women, symptoms can be anything from discomfort that feels like bad indigestion to pain in the arm to breathlessness. Before you learn about the symptoms, it’s important to erase assumptions that a heart attack is always a chest-pounding, keeling-over movie melodrama.

Everyone feels a little tired now and then. But even though we learn to write off fatigue as a sign of not sleeping enough, fighting a cold, overexertion or a reaction to a new medicine, feeling drowsy nonstop could mean something bigger. Unusual or extreme fatigue shouldn’t be ignored, says Dr. Daniel. It may be an early warning sign of heart disease or an impending heart attack. One recent study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that more than 70 percent of women surveyed experienced marked fatigue in the days or weeks prior to their heart attacks.

Everyone experiences problems sleeping now and then because of stress, but chronic trouble sleeping might be caused by more than everyday exertion. If you’ve noticed unusual or prolonged disturbances in your regular sleep patterns, it’s smart to visit your doctor. The NIH study showed almost half of women who recently had a heart attack had sleep disturbances or unexplained insomnia in the days or weeks before the attack.

Some women may take on a gray pallor before or while having a heart attack. If your complexion is suddenly dull, call a doctor before you dial the esthetician. Cold and clammy skin or appearing severely ill can be another sign.

We’ve all been through the flu, but many women write off heart attacks as just that. Women may experience shortness of breath for no obvious reason, unusual upper-back pressure, dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting or fainting.

Even though signs of heart attack can be subtle in women, the good news is that heart disease is preventable. To better understand your body and risks, schedule an appointment with your health care provider to discuss your history. Try to move around a little more every day as well, since even walking 30 minutes a day can lower the risk of heart attack. If you think you might be having a heart attack, dial 911, sit or lie down, and chew an uncoated aspirin immediately. Even if it turns out not to be a heart attack, it’s better to be prepared. Once a heart attack starts, every minute counts.

Forgetfulness is often believed to be just another part of aging, but for many menopausal women, it is directly linked to their changing hormones. According to a study that was published in the journal “Menopause,” foggy memory is often most problematic during the early post-menopause years, and women may struggle with even routine mental tasks.

Menopause brings with it many physical changes. In some cases, symptoms can be mild while in others, they can be dramatic and can cause significant disruption to your life. As many as a third of women experience mood swings during perimenopause and menopause. Emotional meltdowns, sudden tears and increased emotional instability may also have an underlying clinical origin, which is why it is important to discuss your symptoms with your health care provider.

Tossing and turning is not the best way to get a good night’s sleep, but it becomes increasingly common as a woman approaches and goes through menopause. Decreased hormone production and the cessation of periods is a normal part of aging, but the sudden and often-tumultuous changes associated with hormonal fluctuations can cause a wide range of symptoms varying in degree from mild to severe. Many women experience trouble sleeping due to night sweats and other issues.

Menopause brings with it numerous physical and emotional changes. Many women experience an increase in stress, anxiety levels and may even suffer from panic attacks. These may be due not to a sudden onset of psychiatric problems or emotional issues, but are instead related to the dramatic hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause. Women in perimenopause, or the period before menopause, are also likely to experience an increase in anxious feelings and stress.

Women who tend to be sensitive to the hormonal changes that occur throughout life may also be more sensitive to the hormonal fluctuations of menopause. If you suffered from premenstrual syndrome, experienced mood swings during pregnancy or suffered from post-partum depression, you may also be more likely to suffer from depression during menopause. Women who have a personal or family history of being clinically depressed may also be at an increased risk.

Hormonal fluctuations are a fact of life for women throughout most of their lives. Women who suffer from menstrual migraines may be more likely to also suffer from headaches during perimenopause and menopause. That is because the uneven hormone changes associated with perimenopause and menopause can trigger migraines and other types of head pain. Unfortunately, this kind of pain can interfere with your daily life and relationships and increase feelings of anxiety or irritability.

Aches and pains are commonly accepted as normal parts of aging. However, pain all over the body can also be associated with menopause. In fact, more than half of women experiencing menopause or perimenopause, the period of time preceding menopause, will experience joint pain, discomfort and widespread pain.

Most women begin to experience menopause symptoms in their mid- to late-40s, and while their symptoms may vary widely and range from mild to severe in intensity, most have few serious or long-term consequences. Losing bone mass, however, is one symptom that should never be taken lightly or ignored. Osteopenia and osteoporosis refer to the porous bones that become more common in older women.

Joint pain can severely interfere with your life. The stiffness, inflammation and slow movement of painful joints can slow you down and make you feel old before your time. Although many people associated painful, swollen joints with aging or arthritis, it can often be associated with hormonal imbalances, and once these imbalances are treated, the symptoms and discomfort can be alleviated. If you are suffering from joint inflammation, addressing hormonal issues can allow you to once again enjoy a healthy, active, fully engaged life.

Osteopenia is the precursor to osteoporosis, a condition that increases the risk of bone fractures due to a severe decrease in bone density. Women’s bone mass reaches peak density when they are in their 20s and early 30s, and as they age, their bone mass begins to decrease. After menopause, the bone loss accelerates primarily due to the loss of estrogen, which reduces collagen levels.

Many women consider hair loss to be a man’s problem, so when they notice their brush has more hair in it and their hair feels thinner than it once did, they can experience quite a shock. Is their hair thinning? It’s quite possible. The hormonal changes, including decreased estrogen and progesterone, associated with menopause can cause noticeable thinning of the hair, and it occurs in half of women by the time they reach 50. Unlike baldness in men, however, women’s hair loss tends to be more diffuse and spread evenly throughout the scalp, which leads to overall thinning rather than a single area of baldness.

Menopause brings with it many changes, including changes to your appearance. Thinning or sagging skin can lead to premature aging while diffuse hair loss can cause thinner hair. The same hormonal fluctuations that cause these changes can also cause thin or brittle nails. While many other symptoms of perimenopause and menopause can have a serious effect on your life, thinning hair and nails may not. However, they can have an impact on your self-esteem and leave you feeling self-conscious about the way you look.

Recent research reveals that more than 25 percent of post-menopausal women are at risk of losing teeth. A study published in Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology examined more than 1,000 women who had undergone menopause, and nearly 300 of them lost a tooth during the five-year study. The tooth loss is believed to be related to hormone deficiencies and osteoporosis, but women who are overweight, smoke, have poor oral health or diabetes may be at an ever greater risk of losing teeth.

Red, swollen and bleeding gums are generally symptoms of gingivitis or gum disease, but they can also be linked to menopause. The hormone swings of menopause and perimenopause can cause gums to become irritated and inflamed and increase the risk of gum irritation, redness, swelling, bleeding and other oral health problems.

Hot flashes are a well-known symptom of menopause, and while burning tongue may not be as well known, it can be just as bothersome. Burning sensations in the mouth are usually linked to the hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause, and they can be easily ignored or attributed to other factors. However, burning tongue can be associated with dental health complications, including reduced saliva flow, a change in saliva composition, changes in nerve function and severe pain.

Women who are entering menopause will often go through many different physical and emotional changes. Their bodies can change shape, and they can begin to gain weight often around their midsections. These changes are generally directly or indirectly related to the hormonal fluctuations and declines in estrogen production. Losing muscle mass is a common menopause symptom that can cause weight gain, back pain, aches and pains.

Menopause refers to the cessation of monthly periods and the end of a woman’s fertility. Most women begin to experience menopause symptoms in their middle to late 40s and their last period in their 50s.

Beginning in early 2015, the H5N2 subtype was found in poultry and wild birds in the Midwest and Southeast. The role of wild birds in the introduction and movement of the H5N2 subtype in to these new regions is unclear as the timing of these findings is poorly associated with known wild bird movements at that time, given that the first cases in domestic turkeys in Minnesota occurred at the end of winter, proceeding the arrival of migratory birds from the southern U.S. As of October 6, 2015, 48 million poultry have died or been euthanized as a result of HPAI outbreaks, and the last detection occurred on June 17, 2015. A total of 85 cases of HPAI have been reported in wild birds. The last detection was on July 31, 2015.

Up-to-date listings of HPAI cases can be found at the following locations:

Wild Birds (pdf, USDA-APHIS site)

The novel H5N1 HPAIV that was found in a green-winged teal in Washington is not the same as the Asian H5N1 strain that can infect people and has been the news for several years. Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the strains of Eurasian/North American HPAI currently in the US are of low risk to human health.

Aquatic birds, especially ducks, shore birds and gulls are considered natural reservoirs for avian influenza viruses. The novel HPAI strains so far are not killing wild waterfowl. However, domestic poultry exposed to these novel virus strains become very ill and most quickly die. In some poultry the only sign of the disease is sudden death. In most infected domestic flocks. The numbers of sick and dying birds increases rapidly over several days. HPAI is devastating to the US poultry industry through production and bird losses, and through the loss of export markets. USDA, State Agriculture and Departments of Natural Resources, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and other agencies are working together to find infected poultry and stop the spread of disease and to educate producers and hunters

How does it spread?

The virus is spread through contact with fecal droppings, saliva and nasal discharges of infected birds. One gram of infected feces contains enough virus to infect one million additional birds. Unlike LPAI, HPAI causes a systemic infection in the bird, spreading the virus to meat and eggs. The virus can survive in dead birds, especially if they are kept cool, for a few days. HPAI also survives in cold, moist environments and tolerates freezing - virus frozen in contaminated ponds can infect birds when the ice melts.

The novel HPAI viruses currently in the US are of little risk to people, and are killed in food by using proper cooking methods and temperatures. Cook game bird meat thoroughly; poultry should reach an internal temperature of 165°F to kill disease organisms and parasites.

What should hunters do to prevent spreading the disease?

Because HPAI can spread from bird carcasses, hunters should take extra precautions so they don't bring the virus home to their own or their neighbors' poultry. In the Pacific flyway, captive falcons became ill and many died after being fed infected wild ducks. Hunters should:

  • Dress your game birds in the field whenever possible.
  • If you must dress birds at home, clean them in an area your poultry and pet birds cannot access. Ideally, there would be a solid barrier between your game cleaning area and where your birds are housed.
  • Keep a separate pair of shoes to wear only in your game cleaning area. If this is not possible, wear rubber footwear and clean/disinfect your shoes before entering or leaving the area.
  • Use dedicated tools for cleaning game, whether in the field or at home. Do not use those tools around your poultry or pet birds.
  • Always wear rubber gloves when cleaning game.
  • Double bag the offal and feathers. Tie the inner bag, and be sure to take off your rubber gloves and leave them in the outer bag before tying it closed.
  • Place the bag in a trash can that poultry and pet birds cannot access. This trash can should also be secure against access by children, pets, or other animals.
  • Wash hands with soap and water immediately after handling game. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol wipes.
  • Wash all tools and work surfaces with soap and water. Then, disinfect them following the disinfectant's labeling. Make sure the disinfectant you use is labeled as effective against flu viruses.
  • Bird Flu - Guidance for Hunters (USDA, pdf, 100kb)
    Hunter Wallet Card (USDA, pdf, 75kb)

    What's being done to prevent its spread?

    Federal and state wildlife agencies are conducting continent-wide wild bird and habitat surveillance for HPAI. Surveillance for wild birds is focused on wetland species such as waterfowl, gulls, and shorebirds and includes testing live-trapped birds, hunter-harvested waterfowl, and mortality events.

      [A] Do you have constipation?
      [Q] No constipation.
      [A] It’s tough to diagnose this remotely. What exactly are you looking for? Do you want to know some home remedies for typhoid? Do you want to know about typhoid symptoms?
      [A] You must most certainly follow your doctor’s advice and get your blood check up done to detect what the problem is – whether its typhoid fever or something else
      [A] Here are some home remedies I can suggest – but use them only after you have consulted your doctor:

      • Take a lot of rest
      • Cold compress if your fever goes over 103
      • Drink more water; even orange juice will be good as that will give you more energy
      • Stick to easily digestible foods – liquid diet is good if you can tolerate it.
      • Warm eater enema may also be administered for some people during typhoid fever.

      Question: About a week ago I was suffering from constipation & stomach ache with occasional fever. Last 2 days, I have continuous fever of around 99-100 degree F. My widal test (not from reputed lab ) is +ve.

      Answer: Since the Widal test has been done and the result has been positive, your diagnosis is typhoid. Diet and hygiene will play an important role in your treatment.
      Here are a few home remedies for treating typhoid:

      * Drink 2 tall glasses of warm milk to which Psyllium seeds have been added. Psyllium seeds help in the easy and smooth passage of stools and check constipation.
      * To settle a disturbed stomach, drink 2 tender coconut water everyday. Coconut water is alkaline and rich in essential nutrients.
      * To battle fatigue and exhaustion, eat 5 dates daily. Soak them overnight in water and eat the next day. Dates provide great strength and vigor.
      * Stomach pain can be relieved by consuming a mixture of 1 spoon cumin seed powder and 1 spoon of powdered sugar.
      * In order to manage fluctuating temperatures, drink raisin water. Raisins are an excellent tonic during fevers. Avoid popping anti-pyretics.
      * Avoid foods which derange and upset the stomach. Stay away from spicy food, tea, coffee, aerated drinks, refined foods and alcohol.
      * Increase your fluid intake to prevent typhoid.

      Control Typhoid:

      * Take rest for a period of 1 week. Your body needs to recover and recuperate.
      * Drink boiled and filtered water only.
      * Wash hands and feet thoroughly.
      * Always keep food in covered containers.
      * Eat steaming hot food.

      Question: I am suffering from high fever for about 25 days. Recently I have been diagnosed with typhoid. I was being treated for malaria. I have constant high fever which drops after I take Crocin. I have lost my appetite and feel so weak I cannot stand for more than 10 minutes at a stretch. My stomach pains after I take medicine or food. My physician has prescribed Ofloxacin tablet 400mg, twice a day and Efixime tablet U.S.P 200 mg.

      Answer: Typhoid is an infectious disease, caused by a microbe salmonella typhii which is transmitted by feco-oral route. Nutritional correction is most critical for ensuring a lasting cure. Typhoid is notorious for becoming a chronic case, so it is of very important that you follow a judicious diet, healthy lifestyle and hygienic practices to prevent a relapse or a progression of the disease.

      • Avoid popping too many anti-pyretics like crocin. Also, avoid treating yourself randomly without a definite diagnosis.
      • Take adequate rest. Your body needs to recuperate.
      • Drink only boiled water.
      • Wash your hands and feet after you get home. Wash you hands clean before you eat.
      • Always keep food in closed containers.
      • Prefer hot food.

      On a diet of fruits and vegetables, constipation disappears, never to return.

      Weight loss is entirely normal when the diet is improved. Some individuals become alarmed when their weight falls rapidly. In most cases, this is not a cause for alarm.

      From five to fifteen pounds of water weight alone may be lost when salt is completely eliminated from the diet. In some individuals, five to twenty pounds of old fecal matter may be eliminated from the colon. All of this is useless weight, and you should say, “Good riddance!”

      The body will also try to eliminate all diseased tissue in an effort to rebuild a healthy body. It will try to strip itself down to the bare foundations and then begin to add on only healthy tissue.

      Weight loss may occur for six months to a year. Exercises for muscle growth, such as weight lifting and swimming, will help rebuild the body with lean, muscular tissue. Be sure that your diet includes sufficient amounts of sweet fruits that are high in calories to balance out the low-calorie salads.

      Usually, you can expect to weigh about twenty pounds less after you renormalize your body from the typical high-meat and fat diet of most Americans.

      Almost all the symptoms experienced during a dietary change are due to the body’s efforts to detoxify itself as rapidly as possible!

      You can help in this process by fasting and getting plenty of rest. Be sure you get all the sleep you want and try to avoid stressful situations. During detoxification, you need as much peace and privacy as possible.

      Never halt any symptom with medication. It will only reappear later in greater intensity.

      Above all else, cultivate a positive attitude about what you are doing. Do not feel like you are punishing yourself or that you are making any great sacrifices. You are recovering your health, and that is the greatest reward that can be expected.

      Seasonal flu vaccines can slightly increase a person’s risk of developing GBS – from about 20 cases in a million people to about 21 cases in a million people, said Hawken. But flu presents a greater risk of a person developing the syndrome — about 10 times as much as the flu shot, he said.

      The research is important information to give health care workers when they are confronted with a person who won’t get a flu vaccine because of concern about GBS, said Hawken.

      “It gives the health-care professionals giving the vaccine another tool to put these vaccines in context for those wondering about risk,” he said, adding that in most cases the vaccine is going to lower a person’s risk from GBS. Flu also kills thousands each year.

      It is possible, the researchers found, that in years when the vaccine is not a good match and is less effective at protecting from the flu, the risk of GBS from the vaccine could be less than the one in the million typically associated with it. The vaccine could also reduce, if not prevent, subsequent influenza illnesses, which could reduce the risk of GBS due to those illnesses. In some cases, researchers said, the risk of GBS from the flu could be overestimated, depending on the severity of the flu.

      Still, the researchers said the finding should provide reassurance that seasonal flu vaccines reduce an individual’s risk of GBS in most cases as well as significantly reducing the risk of flu.

      GBS associated with flu vaccines has been a concern since the 1970s, when a vaccine against swine flu was associated with an increased number of Guillain-Barré cases. There was approximately one case of GBS per 100,000 people who got the swine flu vaccine.

      The risk associated with subsequent vaccines is much lower, but it still remains a significant concern for many, especially health care workers who are encouraged or required to receive a flu vaccine for work.

      About half the population in Canada gets a flu shot annually, “not a great rate for public health,” says Wilson. The research should help clarify some of the concerns, he said.

      Both Wilson and Hawken said a vaccine registry, to more accurately track vaccine coverage across Canada, would help public health officials have a more accurate idea about vaccination rates.

      Health Impact News

      Statistics released in March, 2014 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services revealed that the flu vaccine remains the top vaccine causing injuries which are being compensated through vaccine court, and that Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a crippling disease, remains the top injury being awarded compensation due to the seasonal flu vaccine.

      The report shows that from 11/16/2013 through 2/15/2014, there were 128 total cases filed in vaccine court and 52 cases were compensated. 40 judgements adopted settlements and they are listed by vaccine and injury:

      Of the 40 settlements, representing less than one-third of cases filed, 27 were for injuries due to the flu vaccine, with the vast majority of those for Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).

      These statistics are never reported in the pro-Pharma mainstream media. So we have started publishing these reports here at Health Impact News. To see the report from the period before this one read: Flu Vaccine is the most Dangerous Vaccine in the U. S. based on Settled Cases for Injuries, and for the period before that read: Flu Shot Causes Polio-like Guillain-Barré Syndrome: Are Rates Higher Than the Government Admits? The debilitating effects of GBS are very similar to polio, including paralysis.

      Most people do not realize that flu vaccine inserts clearly list Guillain-Barré Syndrome as a known side effect. Unfortunately, the number thrown around by the medical community and mainstream media as to the rates of people becoming injured due to GBS is “one out of 1 million”, a number without any valid data or research.

      In a recent report published in the Nebraska Journal Star, Dr. Ana Delgado, a neurologist, stated that the numbers of GBS are increasing and that the National Institute of Health is thinking of revising the number of people suffering from GBS annually:
