In general, if you want to help keep "stomach flu" at bay, soap and water is one of the best defenses. Use them often. Your stomach will thank you.

Tamiflu is a prescription medicine used to treat the flu (influenza) in people 2 weeks of age and older who have had flu symptoms for no more than 2 days. Tamiflu can also reduce the chance of getting the flu in people 1 year and older.

Tamiflu does not prevent bacterial infections that may happen with the flu.

Herpes Simplex — This virus causes genital herpes, which are painful blisters in the genital area, or cold sores. Severe conditions are more common in the advanced stage of AIDS.

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) — This condition is considered the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD) in the United States. It can cause warts on the anus, cervix, esophagus, penis, urethra, vagina and vulva. Studies have shown that certain types of HPV can contribute to the development of cervical and anal cancer. Individuals with HIV and AIDS are at increased risk for developing precancerous and cancerous lesions.

Liver Disease — Liver disease is one of the leading causes of death among AIDS patients, especially liver disease caused by the hepatitis B and hepatitis C virus. Many drugs used in the treatment of HIV and AIDS can cause liver disease or hepatitis. It is important that patients infected with hepatitis receive treatment and follow-up care.

Coccidiomycosis — This infection is caused by inhaling an infective fungus called Coccidioides immitis, found mainly in contaminated soil in the southwestern United States, Mexico, Central America and parts of South America. The lungs are most commonly affected by this infection. In severe cases, it can involve the kidneys, lymph system, brain and spleen. Symptoms include cough, weight loss and fatigue. Meningitis is a common complication when left untreated.

Histoplasmosis — This infection almost always involves the lungs, although other organs may be affected. The fungus that causes this condition is found in southern parts of the United States and South America. It is usually found in soil contaminated with bird droppings and must be inhaled to cause infection.

Signs and symptoms include high fever; weight loss; respiratory complaints; an enlarged liver, spleen, or lymph nodes; depressed production of white cells, red blood cells and platelets from the bone marrow; and life-threatening, unstable, low blood pressure.

Pneumocystis Carinii — This condition occurs when a fungus infects the lungs. Symptoms may include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, weight loss, night sweats and fatigue.

It is most likely to occur when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 200 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Preventative treatment may be administered when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 200 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Treatment is usually trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, also called Septra or Bactrim, dapsone or atovoquone.

Recurrent Pneumonia — People with AIDS are at risk for recurrent bacterial pneumonia. Bacteria can infect the lungs, which may lead to problems ranging from a mild cough to severe pneumonia. Recurrent pneumonia is most likely to occur when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 200 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

Tuberculosis (TB) — This is a serious, and often deadly, bacterial infection that primarily infects the lungs. TB is transmitted when a person with active TB coughs or sneezes, releasing microscopic particles into the air. If inhaled, these particles may transmit the condition.

Once infected by TB, most people remain healthy and develop only latent infection. People with latent infection are neither sick nor infectious. However, they do have the potential to become sick and infectious with active TB. It can occur at any CD4+ T cell level but especially when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 350 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma — Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a disease in which tumors develop from white blood cells in the lymphatic system. It is another common disease associated with AIDS. See AIDS-related lymphoma.

Candidiasis — This is the most common HIV-related fungus infection. It can affect the entire body, but most commonly occurs in the mouth (thrush) or vagina. An overgrowth of yeast causes white patches on gums, tongue or lining of the mouth, pain, difficulty in swallowing and loss of appetite. Candida in the esophagus, trachea, bronchi or lungs is AIDS defining.

Herpes Simplex — This virus causes cold sores or genital herpes, which are painful blisters in the genital area. Chronic herpes simplex virus (HSV) lesions and severe mucocutaneous HSV disease are common in the advanced stages of AIDS.

stromectol effet au bout de combien de temps

La plupart des personnes en bonne santé se remet-tent de la grippe sans problème grave. La fièvre et les douleurs musculaires persistent généralement de 2 à 4 jours, mais la toux et la fatigue peuvent subsister pendant au moins 1 à 2 semaines.

Dans de rares cas, l’influenza peut attaquer le cerveau, provoquer des convulsions prolongées, de la confusion ou une incapacité de réagir. Elle peut aussi toucher le cœur. L’influenza peut aussi affaiblir le système immunitaire et entraîner des infections bactériennes de l’oreille, des poumons ou des sinus.

L’influenza est plus grave chez les enfants de moins de 2 ans et chez ceux qui sont atteints de certaines maladies chroniques.

Le traitement de l’influenza: Ce que les parents peuvent faire

Si votre enfant souffre d’une maladie des poumons ou du cœur, d’une maladie qui affaiblit le système immunitaire ou d’une autre maladie chronique qui exige des soins médicaux réguliers et que vous pensez qu’il souffre d’influenza, téléphonez immédiatement à votre médecin. Il pourra vous prescrire un antiviral. L’amantadine (Symmetrel), l’oséltamivir (Tamiflu) et le zanamivir (Relenza) sont des antiviraux qui peuvent lutter contre les virus de l’influenza. Ces médicaments peuvent aussi être prescrits à des personnes en santé qui souffrent d’une grave influenza. Ils doivent être administrés dans les 48 heures suivant les premiers symptômes de la maladie pour être efficaces.

La prévention de l’influenza grâce à la vaccination

Il est possible de prévenir l’influenza grâce à la vaccination. La plupart des personnes vaccinées n’attra-peront pas l’influenza. Les personnes qui deviennent malades le sont moins. Parce que de nouvelles souches d’influenza se forment chaque année, il faut se faire vacciner tous les ans. Le vaccin contre l’influenza permet d’éviter seulement l’influenza. Il ne prévient pas les infections à d’autres virus respiratoires que les gens appellent parfois la « grippe ». Il ne peut pas causer la grippe.

Le vaccin contre l’influenza (contre la grippe) est offert à l’automne et assure une protection pendant toute la saison de l’influenza (de novembre à avril). Il faut attendre à peu près deux semaines après l’administration du vaccin pour que celui-ci assure une protection complète. Les enfants de moins de 9 ans doivent recevoir 2 doses du vaccin (à 4 semaines d’intervalle) la première fois. Le vaccin contre l’influenza actuel ne fonctionne pas chez les enfants de moins de 6 mois.

La Société canadienne de pédiatrie recommande que tous les enfants de 6 à 23 mois et que les enfants plus âgés qui souffrent de certaines maladies chroniques se fassent vacciner contre la grippe tous les ans. Les parents, les frères et sœurs plus âgés, les autres personnes qui habitent dans la maison et les éducatrices des enfants de moins de 2 ans devraient aussi se faire vacciner pour éviter de se faire infecter et de transmettre l’infection aux enfants plus jeunes. La Société canadienne de pédiatrie a préparé une feuille de renseignements sur le vaccin contre la grippe (à www.soinsdenosenfants.cps.ca).

Assurez-vous que votre enfant a bien reçu tous les autres vaccins recommandés. Ces vaccins préviendront quelques-unes des complications de la grippe, comme les infections bactériennes des oreilles ou des poumons.

Alcohol Withdrawal Summary

Since man has recorded history, the practice of consuming alcoholic beverages has been a part of life. Alcohol consumption has become tradition across lines of culture, religion, gender, age, and race. Whether to celebrate life’s highs, to comfort life’s lows, to relax and refresh following a day’s work, or to socialize during a night with friends, alcohol consumption has played many roles throughout history. But along with these positives, the potential for alcohol abuse and addiction has always been present within the history of man’s relationship with alcohol. While alcoholism is largely a self-diagnosed condition; MedLinePlus, a service of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) offers warning signs for alcoholism and abuse:

“Alcoholism is when you have signs of physical addiction to alcohol and continues to drink, despite problems with physical health, mental health, and social, family, or job responsibilities. Alcohol may control your life and relationships”; and for alcohol abuse: “Alcohol abuse is when your drinking leads to problems, but not physical addiction” (Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse).

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

If you find that you, a friend, a co-worker, or a loved one fits this criteria, the first hurdle needed to be cleared is that of the withdrawal from alcohol. Based upon the severity of the grip of alcohol; alcohol withdrawal may seem to be an insurmountable obstacle in recovery, and detoxification from alcohol dependence should always be conducted under the supervision of a qualified professional.

Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can range from rather benign (the nagging hangover), to acutely severe (hallucinations, delirium tremens), and even to death. Withdrawal from alcohol is common among heavy drinkers upon cessation of alcohol consumption. According to a first-hand report from Chad A. Asplund M.D., Jacob W. Aaronson D.O., and Hadassah E. Aaronson D.O., clinicians at Dewitt Army Community Hospital in Fort Belvoir, Va.:

stromectol pas efficace

I am always looking for the next time. My kids do not talk to me anymore because they do not want me reporting it to the police if I know it is their dad. My twins are 35 and 31.

30) It's funny when people reach out on such a scary topic. I am feeling the same thing with recurrent illnesses over the years.

My question to those that posted negatively or said we are stupid: Why did you look for this topic in the first place? Are you someone looking to poison someone yourself? Just have some empathy, because, in my opinion, since you refer to our stupidity, you are probably looking to hurt someone else.

29) Is arsenic found in menthylated spirit and hair relaxers?

28) I am really worried. I have a lot of those symptoms and more that I have read elsewhere. Some symptoms that I have are white lines on my fingernails (I read that is a main symptoms of arsenic poisoning on many websites), it burns sometimes when pee(about two times a month this happens), I have weird texture type horizontal lines on my finger nails (also read on many different sites), a dry throat and purplish-red skin. I cannot think of anybody who would be poisoning me. Is there anything else that would cause these symptoms? Please help.

27) I have many of the symptoms, but my fears seem to be far-fetched. A lot is at stake with me gone from the scene though, and my husband is aggressive and acted violently against me several times already. People's intervention prevented serious consequences.

26) I'm confused. All of you are talking about the people you are living with poisoning you. If you think this is happening, why on earth would you stay there?

I know it's tough to move out on your own, you may not have means of support, but geez, if you think you are being poisoned, get out!

Even if you aren't, obviously you don't trust the person(s) you are with and believe they wish to harm you. Find a shelter, the local mission, ask a local church to help you find shelter, but get out if it's that bad!

23) If you are not sure whether someone is poisoning you, check your place for mold as it can produce many weird symptoms. Stop drinking fluoride in tap/spring water, check your mouth for metal fillings (mercury), and also start eating organic as commercial food has pesticides/herbicides (poisons). Many people are being poisoned by everyday life. I am sorry to those who were literally poisoned! Chlorella might help, along with Vitamin C?

20) @anon293093: See if you can get a lock of her hair. It doesn't have to be much, but poison can sometimes be detected in the hair. If it comes up positive for poison, maybe you can get her to file a complaint against him.

19) Please, someone help me. I have a good friend and she been feeling sick, lost her appetizer and she has been losing a lot of weight and gets sick at her stomach from time to time, I will say very often and she is losing her hair.

Her ex-husband decided to come back and live in her house and he has been preparing her meals. When they divorced, it was a bad divorce and turned really ugly to the point that he ended up in jail twice.

He came back crying to her and said he doesn't have a place to live and her daughter is seven years old. She begged her mom to let him in the house so she practically didn't have a choice but to let him in. Now she has been feeling sick like I said before.

Can someone please help me and get back to me with better advice on what to do to help her? I don't like to the way she is looking and I'm very worried.

18) I have been sick with the same symptoms a few times, four major times that I can recall. I am just getting over another bout. The symptoms were very severe stomach cramps, nausea, stomach bloating as if pregnant. weakness, headaches, lightheadedness, feeling as if I was going to fall over, muscles feel weird and weak, and throat felt restricted when I swallow at times. I realized this usually happened when I spent time over to a certain person's home for a weekend or any length of time, I alone would get sick.

I decided to send some samples of my hair to a toxicology lab and get tested to see what was going on. The tests came back showing arsenic in my system, twice as much as should be found in any human body. God had been good and kept me alive this long. Praise God. Someone has been poisoning me for sure, unless my well water at the former house I lived in was tainted. I am having the water there tested now, just to have it ruled out, really. The poison will show in the body with your hair so you will find it there. Please, if you feel as if you may be being poisoned, seek help and get that test done so you will know for sure. It could save your life.

usually immediate and affecting more that one part of the body-

digestion: nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhoea
skin: swelling eczema, hives
airways: wheezing, coughing, congestion and a runny nose
anaphylaxis: most known to happen in peanuts allergy but can be triggered by all sorts of food ingestion.

Some people who react to milk may either have Coeliac disease or Non Coeliac Gluten Intolerance. This is because these people also develop lactose intolerance. Please read our dedicated page for this. Read More »»

Currently the only 100% successful treatment for milk allergies is total avoidance of milk proteins. Infants who develop milk allergy, usually outgrow the condition. However, if the infants are breast-fed, the lactating mothers are given an elimination diet. If symptoms are not relieved or if the infants are bottle-fed, milk substitute formulas are used to provide the infant with a complete source of nutrition. Milk substitutes include soy milk, rice milk, and hypoallergenic formulas based on hydrolysed protein or free amino acids. Please note soy milk is hyperallergenic i.e. it is easy for the immune system to think it is harmful.

Enzyme Therapy:
As explained above food allergy is triggered by proteins and the immune system mistakenly thinks they are harmful proteins. Proteins are broken down by enzymes when digested, and lack of proper breakdown may be the cause for the proteins to become allergens. Hence, as explained in Better Nutrition Journal and several medical papers enzyme therapy can help eliminate or minimise symptoms. Read Enzymes to the Rescue. Commercially available enzymes that break down proteins are available on the market and a very effective product is availably in the 'products' section here. Prolactazyme Forte does a brilliant job in most cases and can be used by children and adults alike.

FOOD POISONING STORIES

Years ago, my husband and I ate at a “hole in the wall” Mexican restaurant. He thought his meal tasted great. Mine was pretty good too. While we were waiting for the check, he started to feel sick. It came on so fast. He got up to go look for the bathroom and immediately started vomiting. He left a trail of vomit all the way to the bathroom (which unfortunately was the women’s bathroom, poor guy). Anyway, when he finished vomiting he felt fine. Two hours later, he had a big bowl of ice cream with chocolate sauce. I suspect that this type of food poisoning was from the toxins produced either by Staphylococcus aureus or Bacillus cereus since it came on so suddenly and was over so quickly. No one else caught it from him which further supports a diagnosis of food poisoning.

Another example of obvious non-contagious food poisoning happened to my sister and her coworker recently. They went to happy hour (at 5pm) at a local restaurant and shared an appetizer of fried calamari with a dipping sauce. At 10pm, they were both vomiting. Since they don't live together and didn't eat anything else that was the same that day, I am very certain that they got food poisoning from that shared appetizer. The dipping sauce was probably sitting out barely warm under a heat lamp all afternoon growing toxin producing bacteria. No one else caught it from them so that further suggests that it was food poisoning.

Another example of non-contagious food poisoning recently happened to a friend and her husband after having dinner at a restaurant. They had different meals but they both got the same house salad (lettuce, eggs, tomato, cheese, croutons, cucumbers, and creamy Italian dressing). My friend went to bed at 9:30pm and thought her stomach felt odd but she fell asleep anyway. She woke up at 10:15pm and had to run to the toilet to vomit. She had 1 violent episode of vomiting and then felt okay. She slept the rest of the night. She was perfectly fine the next day. This seems like a case of non-contagious food poisoning because it came on so quickly after the meal and was over quickly. Although it is possible to vomit just 1 time from a stomach flu virus, they usually don't end that quickly. Her husband had a different story. He had a stomachache after dinner just like she did. However, he did not vomit. He had a stomachache for the next 2 days and then had diarrhea for the following 3 days. He wasn't right for a week. If I was just looking at his symptoms, I'd say that he probably has something contagious. However, since his wife most definitely has the non-contagious form, and they both felt sick at the same time, I would blame it on a bad salad. This example shows us that even the same bad food can affect people differently. I know throwing up is scary but when you eat something bad, it is probably the fastest way to feel better. My friend's husband didn't throw up and kept the bad stuff in. He was sick all week.

Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can range from rather benign (the nagging hangover), to acutely severe (hallucinations, delirium tremens), and even to death. Withdrawal from alcohol is common among heavy drinkers upon cessation of alcohol consumption. According to a first-hand report from Chad A. Asplund M.D., Jacob W. Aaronson D.O., and Hadassah E. Aaronson D.O., clinicians at Dewitt Army Community Hospital in Fort Belvoir, Va.:

Up to 71% of individuals presenting for alcohol detoxification manifest significant symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. Alcohol withdrawal is a clinical syndrome that affects people accustomed to regular alcohol intake who either decrease their alcohol consumption or stop drinking completely.

The report continues to list symptoms common to withdrawal from alcohol. Beginning with the least severe and most common symptoms, the report states:

  • Tremor (shakes)
  • Craving for alcohol
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Vivid dreams
  • Agitation
  • Irritability
  • Loss of appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Sweating

Alcohol Impacts the Body, and Brain

Severe symptoms, according to the report, are potentially much more dangerous, and are deserving of in depth description:

  • Delirium tremens (DTs): “DTs are much more serious than the “alcohol shakes”—5% of patients who experience DTs die from metabolic complications… DTs, which present within 2 to 4 days of the last drink (and can last up to 3 to 4 days), are characterized by disorientation, persistent visual and auditory hallucinations, agitation and tremulousness, and autonomic signs resulting from the activation of stress-related hormones. These signs include tachycardia [an abnormally rapid heart rate], hypertension, and fevers.”
  • Seizures: “Grand mal seizures can occur in up to 25% of alcoholics undergoing withdrawal.4 If alcohol-related seizures do occur, they generally do so within 1 day of cessation of alcohol intake, but can occur up to 5 days later” (Asplund, et.al)

There are many factors which determine the severity and duration of symptoms relating to withdrawal from alcohol. Risk factors, according to the report authored by the team at the Dewitt Army Community Hospital include: “…duration of alcohol consumption, the number of lifetime prior detoxifications, prior seizures, prior episodes of DTs, and current intense craving for alcohol” (Asplund, et.al). In order to determine the proper course for alcohol detoxification, the patient will typically undergo a series of tests in order to establish the extent of physical and psychiatric injury brought about by the abuse of alcohol. Tests for potential complications include:

A team led by Dr. Russell Stothard, head of the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative at the Natural History Museum, London, recently conducted a field evaluation, which reported that even if stool or urine examinations are negative, a tissue biopsy might reveal eggs. Detection of antibody might as well be useful for epidemiological surveys as well as clinical research and management.

Schistosomiasis can be successfully treated using an oral drug Praziquantel. Though a single dose of this drug can cure the infection, it is not effective in preventing re-infection of the patient, which is highly probable in an affected area. Researches are presently being carried on to develop a vaccine for this disease.

The toxic metalloid, antimony was initially used in low doses to treat schistosomiasis, but this is not used in present days. Another drug called Oxamniquine is used outside the U.S to treat Schistosoma mansoni.

Investigations are being carried on a new Egyptian drug, Mirazid for the treatment of this disease.

Other forms of oral medication that are being experimented with are medicinal castor oil, Gopo Berry (by Dr Chidzere of Zimbabwe in 1980s), etc.

Acrolein, copper sulfate, and niclosamide can be used to eliminate the fresh-water snails that cause the disease.

Crayfish breeding can also be helpful for the purpose though it must be done with caution.

Avoiding water bodies previously detected with snails.

Use of sapindus plant(Phytolacca dodecandra) to prevent the disease by controlling snails. Aklilu Lemma and Legesse Wolde-Yohannes received the Right Livelihood Award in 1989 for their research.

Better plans and designs while creating dams and irrigation schemes can prevent this disease from spreading among the nearby population.

Influenza B: Cause, Symptom, Treatment and Prevention

Influenza B can cause respiratory and stomach symptoms. It can be easily treated. Vaccine and staying away from virus can prevent it.

Influenza or the flu refers to a respiratory infection that can be caused by a variety of viruses. The virus will move through the air and become inhaled through the mouth or nose. Approximately 5-20 percent of people catch the flu each year in the United States. Influenza can cause a serious infection or death in newborns, the elderly and people with some chronic illnesses. The viruses that cause influenza are classified as A, B or C types, depending on how their proteins are composed. Type B viruses are the most common in humans.

All flu viruses travel in the air as droplets of moisture. It spreads when people talk, cough or sneeze, releasing this moisture. Some people inhale this moisture in the air while others touch objects like a keyboard or telephone that are covered in the virus and then transfer them to the eyes, mouth or nose by touching these areas.

The influenza virus alters and creates new strains constantly so those that have already been affected by the flu may have developed antibodies to ward of a specific type of flu virus. If you are exposed to a virus in the future that is similar to those you have experienced before or you have been given a vaccination against a certain type of flu, it will be easier for the body to fight off the infection.

The antibodies a person has developed will not be able to prevent an infection caused by new strains of the virus or subtypes of the virus that are different than those you have already been exposed to.

    Doctors and scientists continue to debate the root cause and even the mechanism of BFS.

    The most prominent theory is that BFS is an auto-immune response to a viral infection. Many suffers of BFS have noted that that onset of their symptoms occurred just after a viral illness or infection, such as the flu. Also, many experience an increase in their symptoms during times of illness.

    The anatomic site of origin for muscle fasciculations and cramps has been debated for many years. Many authors have argued for a central origin of the abnormal discharges in the anterior horn cells. However some evidence favors a very distal origin in the intramuscular motor nerve terminals. Some researchers have found degeneration and regeneration of motor nerve terminals.

    Fentanyl is one of the strongest opiate drugs on the market. It is not a long-lasting drug so it is often used for surgery recovery and for breakthrough pain—meaning that when a person is already taking an opiate but has temporary pain that breaks through the opiate barrier, they may be given fentanyl.

    Time-release formulations for fentanyl provide strong pain relief over time. They come in two forms—a lollipop and a patch. Fentanyl also comes as a small piece of film that can be dissolved under the tongue and a pill meant to be lodged inside the cheek. In hospital settings, fentanyl can be injected. For the individual abusing the drug outside a hospital, this is highly dangerous, as the difference between a therapeutic dose and a deadly dose is very small.

    Several years ago illicit fentanyl entered the scene of the developing opioid crisis, where addicts seeking a stronger high were willing to risk overdose by using heroin cut with the drug. The fact that fentanyl is 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine, even a tiny bit too much can be fatal. When dealers began mixing unknown amounts of fentanyl with heroin and other drugs in order to increase their profits—often selling to an unsuspecting customer—overdose began to take the life of countless individuals across the U.S.

    As with any opiate, the main symptoms of fentanyl abuse are euphoria, drowsiness, lethargy and mellowness. Fentanyl very quickly creates a tolerance to high doses, so a dose that is adequate for the intended high one week will probably not create that intended high even a few days later.

    There are many other signs and symptoms of using fentanyl, either medically or illicitly, that are not desirable.

    These include:

    • Dizziness and lightheadedness
    • Dry mouth
    • Retention of urine
    • Suppression of breathing
    • Severe constipation
    • Itching or hives
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Loss of appetite
    • Weight loss
    • Headache
    • Difficulty seeing
    • Depression
    • Hallucinations
    • Bad dreams
    • Difficulty sleeping
    • Sweating
    • Shaking
    • Swollen extremities

    In most cases, addiction is accompanied by a deterioration in personal integrity. It takes many unethical or criminal acts to maintain an addiction over time—either expenditure of large amounts of personal money or thefts, prescription fraud, doctor-shopping or other crimes, to get the drugs that are needed. A fentanyl addict normally has secrets from most or all of the people they encounter regularly. If the thefts are from a workplace, as often happens, they will be living a secret life while at work. Hospitals, pharmacies and nursing homes are often the sites of fentanyl theft by desperate employees.

    Different people become addicted at different rates. Some addicts try to prevent addiction by letting time pass between usages of strong opiates and others feel compelled to use the drug continuously once they start, which walks them straight into addiction. Those coming off heavy fentanyl abuse will often be weaned down to a lower level before going through withdrawal, as unsupported withdrawal from strong opiates can be brutal.

    If you suspect someone you care about is abusing opioids that may include fentanyl, get them help right away. Waiting until tomorrow could be one day too late.

    Recovering from Opioid Addiction at a Narconon Rehab

    The Narconon drug and alcohol rehab program located around the world has developed a humane way of helping a person through withdrawal and then taking them all the way to lasting sobriety.

    If a person does not need weaning or medical detox, he can safely and tolerably come off his drugs through in the Withdrawal unit at a Narconon center. Each person is immediately given generous doses of nutritional supplements that help alleviate the worst of the body’s reactions to withdrawal. A person coming into a rehab is normally in a severely depleted condition, and these supplements begin the rebuilding process. They also assist the body in starting to eliminate the toxicity that exists from the drugs that were used.

    • 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.

    The first day of his new diet Larry felt pretty good. He had distilled water for breakfast instead of the usual two cups of coffee and ate fresh fruits for lunch. He had a salad for supper and went to bed early to get plenty of rest. The next morning he woke up feeling miserable. He had a sharp headache that raced up his neck behind his ears. He could hardly breathe. His sinuses were clogged shut. He felt worse than he had in weeks.

    The headache stayed all day and into the next day. Now he noticed he had developed a hacking cough that convulsed him. He started spitting up hardened balls of mucus from this lungs.

    The third day his nose was continually draining. As fast as he could blow it, his nose would clog back up. All the time, his headache had never left him, even when he tried to sleep.

    By the fourth day, the headache had subsided a little.

    His cough had worsened, however, and now pieces of hardened gray material were being expelled from his lungs.

    “I can’t stand it!” he thought, “Why am I feeling so miserable as soon as I gave up my bad habits?”

    Why indeed? First, Larry’s headache is a symptom of caffeine withdrawal. Coffee, tea, cola drinks, and other caffeine-containing substances are addictive poisons. When a person drops his caffeine habit, changes occur in the vascular and nervous systems. These changes occur as the body tries to renormalize itself and eliminate the poisons. Headaches often accompany caffeine

    withdrawal, and some people who give up their coffee habit may experience edginess and irritability for a few days.

    Larry’s clogged nose and sinuses were related to the consumption of dairy products. Mucus buildup occurs when milk is consumed. After such foods are eliminated, sinus drainage may occur for two weeks or more. The elimination of old mucus is a healthy sign for such deposits may become the breeding places for many diseases.

    The coughing and spitting of hardened phlegm resulted from the cleansing of the lungs of the tar deposits which had been caused by smoking. Smokers lungs are often crusted black with tar and chemical deposits. When smoking is stopped, the lungs try to cleanse themselves and the old deposits are expelled by coughing. This is why a cough should never be suppressed. Coughing is one method that the body has of expelling toxic wastes from the system.

    After about two weeks, Larry started to feel better than ever. He had plenty of energy without his coffee. His nose, throat, and lungs felt so much cleaner that he had no desire to smoke or eat dairy products. He had suffered for awhile, but now he was reaping the rewards of improved health.

    Everybody is a walking time bomb. Each person carries within him the seeds for disease and illness. These seeds are the environmental and dietary toxins that may be stored within the body and which may spring full force into a debilitating disease.

    What are some of these toxins, and where do they come from? How can we get rid of them? What symptoms can we expect when they start to leave the body?

    Surprisingly enough, one of the largest sources of body toxins is the drugs people take to fight disease (or so they think). Medicinal drugs are very strong—they have to be to overcome the body’s natural defense system.

    When such drugs are taken, they must either be eliminated from the body or stored within it for later elimination.

    As a person’s health improves and all such medicines and drugs are discontinued, the old toxins may enter the bloodstream for elimination. The circulation of these old drug toxins in the system may produce bewildering symptoms that could alarm the health seeker.

    For example, an elderly man had been taking a form of digitalis (a heart stimulant) for several years. He discontinued the drug as he improved his health through exercise.

    After a few days off the drug, he experienced erratic heart beats, a racing pulse and chest pains. He was frightened and wondered if he should take his old drug again.

    One of the best ways to prevent seasonal influenza is through yearly immunization because the influenza virus changes each year.

    As part of Alberta's influenza immunization program, Albertans 6 months of age and older are able to receive influenza vaccine, free of charge, at public health clinics, pharmacies and doctor’s offices.

    • About immunization
    • Where to get immunized
    • Contact your local pharmacist or physician for details on vaccine availability

    Alberta Health is offering Albertans one type of influenza vaccine free of charge. This vaccine, called Fluzone, is offered as an injection, contains 4 strains of influenza virus and is a safe and effective vaccine for all ages.

    Having multiple types of vaccines increases the complexity of our immunization program. Offering one type of vaccine to Albertans at mass public clinics, pharmacies and doctor’s offices means we can offer a more efficient program where vaccine is available for everyone across the province when clinics open.

    Alberta Health will not offer FluMist (the nasal spray) this season. In previous years, FluMist had been available for children between the ages of 2 and 17.

    • In 2016, Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization removed its preferential recommendation for FluMist for children 2–17 years of age. The committee concluded that FluMist and injectable vaccines are equally safe and effective for children.

    FLUAD is an influenza vaccine designed to boost the immune response in seniors. This year, FLUAD will not be available at public health clinics. Seniors living in long term care or supportive living will continue to be offered FLUAD free of charge.

    • This aligns with recommendations from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization. The committee recommends either FLUAD or a regular four-strain vaccine for seniors.
    • Some pharmacists may choose to offer FLUAD to Albertans age 65 and older at a cost. Seniors who wish to be immunized with FLUAD can contact their pharmacies for more information.

    • In 2016/17, Canadian estimates on vaccine effectiveness show vaccine was 42% effective against the dominant strain, H3N2.
      • This is slightly lower than in 2015/16 when the vaccine was 50% effective and the dominant strain of influenza was H1N1. Vaccine effectiveness is often lower against H3N2 strains of influenza, so this could explain why the vaccine was less effective.
      • Even with an effectiveness rating of 42%, immunization is the best way for Albertans to protect themselves and others against influenza.

    Vaccine effectiveness varies from year to year but immunization is still the best protection. We do not know how effective this year’s vaccine will be, but we do know that not being immunized offers no protection.

    • Alberta has purchased 1.6 million doses of influenza vaccine for the 2017/18 season. This is enough to immunize 35% of the population.
      • Total cost: $12.1 million.
    • In 2016/17, Alberta Health purchased 1.6 million doses of influenza vaccine.
      • Total cost: $12.7 million
      • 27% of Albertans (roughly 1.1 million people) received the influenza vaccine
      • 64 people died and had lab-confirmed influenza
      • 1,653 Albertans were admitted to hospital with lab-confirmed influenza.
    • Alberta has offered universal influenza immunization free of charge to residents since 2009.
    • The program before 2009 targeted those most at risk of disease and complications.
    • 2016/17 – 27.0% (more influenza data is available on the Alberta Health Services influenza website )
    • 2015/16 – 27.0%
    • 2014/15 – 30.0%
    • 2013/14 – 27.6%
    • 2012/13 – 23.0%
    • 2011/12 – 22.5%
    • 2010/11 – 22.0%

    Every year we hope to see more Albertans get immunized, and we encourage all Albertans age 6 months and older to be immunized when vaccine is available.
