Guillain-Barre Syndrome occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the peripheral nervous system — literally shorting out the nerves that signal our legs to move, our eyes to close and our lungs to breathe.

“It’s supposed to be a rare disorder,” said Dr. Ana Delgado. But given the number of cases the neurologist has seen since joining Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in August, she is convinced something is triggering an increase in the number of cases and the severity of this devastating and sometimes fatal syndrome.

The National Institutes of Health estimates one of every 100,000 people will contract GBS. But Scott Culbine, who is still recovering from his attack this past August, says there is talk of revising that number to one in every 50,000 people — a statistic far more in line with GBS patient numbers at Madonna.

Currently there are five GBS in-patients at Madonna, including Scipio, and one outpatient. Once upon a time, it was rare for Madonna to have even one GBS patient; nowadays it is rare not to have one or more, said Dan Kasparek, speech/language pathologist and Neurological Conditions Program leader.

It is interesting how the CDC will throw around the term “epidemic” to justify mass vaccination at a college campus where 7 students come down with meningitis during a 9-month period, prompting them to administer an unapproved meningitis vaccine. But that same logic is not used for adverse reactions to vaccines, where hundreds, if not thousands of people are being injured and crippled. As you can see from the HHS report above, it is very difficult to get the government to pay for vaccine injuries, and often takes years of costly litigation in court. This is obviously just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to injuries due to the flu vaccine.

It has been documented how the CDC inflates the numbers of flu deaths each year in order to sell more flu vaccines. We have also reported how there is strong evidence that the flu vaccine is not only ineffective, but could be causing people to have more severe cases of the flu (see: Is Flu Vaccine Causing Increase in H1N1 Outbreaks? 5 Year Old Boy Dies from H1N1 Virus, Even Though He Was Vaccinated Month Before).

To understand how vaccine injuries and deaths are dealt with in a special “vaccine court” that was set up by Congress, after granting legal immunity to pharmaceutical companies in 1986 for any damages caused by vaccines (and which was then upheld by the Supreme Court in 2011), watch the excellent videos below by Emmy Award winning journalist Ben Swann, as well as the video by The Canary Party, narrated by actor Rob Schneider.

Think twice and do your own research before getting a flu vaccine, or you too might become an ignored statistic with a ruined life.

If this is all part of the withdrawl, I will deal with it as well as all the other withdrawal symptoms. But this one hell of a ride I never want to experience again.

I have been taking Lexapro for about 10 years because I have depression. my doctor wants me so stop taking it and put me on something else because I now have I also have P.D.S.D now. do you know if I will go crazy and bring my self to the edge of suicide like I was before I was taking it.

My primary care doctor started me on 10mg Lexapro. I had numerous side effects, which included an intense hot flash in the first week or so of taking the medicine. I also had 3 itchy welts form on my chest region, the doctor told me to stop taking the Lexapro after I told him about the itchy welts. I felt tingling and electric type shocking throughout my body. I couldn't sleep well at times, and had some very intense scary thoughts and heightened sensation to commit suicide. After noticing the itchy welts, I decided to stop the Lexapro. It made me feel the way I hoped it would a good bit of the time, but it was not worth all the other feelings it induced. I cut back to 5mg for the last week to taper myself off, knowing that was the best way to stop meds. I told my doctor about the itchy welts after I dropped to the 5mg the last week, that's when he told me to stop taking the Lexapro. I said (knowing I already had begun that process) should I quit slowly, he said no, stop it immediately. I am afraid to take any medications these days, I have trouble with the trusting, especially considering the precarious side effects. I hope this was helpful in some small way.

I was recently switched from Prozac to lexapro. About three months. My dr recently upped my dose from 10mg to 20mg even after I told him how itchy and restless I've become. I am covered in hives daily. Feel like I can't relax and constantly shake my leg or foot.. Thought I was just crazy until reading these posts! I have literally scratched my arms legs and hands raw. Grrrrrrrr!! And the dreams are the worst to boot. Now reading about the withdrawal symptoms scares me. Facing a lot in my life soon and really need the extra help, but not sure what to do now.

I was on lexapro for about a year. It really helped my anxiety but the downside was I gained 25 pounds. I was constantly eating when I was not hungry and craving sweets. I had no energy to do anything and would come home from work and by go to the sofa. I finally decided I couldn't gain anymore weight and discussed it with my Dr. He advised I wean off of it gradually. I was on 20mg and instead of taking it every day I took it every other day for 3 weeks. Then I dropped it to 10 mg every other day for a week. I was ok for about 5 days. Then I started crying over nothing and getting irritable. Then it got worse. I was blowing up screaming at my husband over things that would normally not bother me. Having temper fits, throwing things, or sobbing over the least little stress. I have a long commute to work and road rage was scary. After a week of this I went back to Dr.and he put me on low dose of Welbutrin to be increased after 2 weeks. After a few days I started to calm down some. After 10 days I still cry easily and get irritated with any little stress but I am able to control myself.

I took 10mg of lexapro for 7 years for panic attacks.Except for 13 pounds of weight gain I felt great.

Six month ago I decided wean of to loose the weight.No problem!

I lost my excess weight within 3 weeks and felt great without any side effects.That lasted 4 month and when my brother died 2 month ago my panic attacks came back worse than ever.

After weeks of misery I am back on lexapro and feel good again.

I guess I will take it for the rest of my live.

After becoming rather sick I visited an urgent care facility where the doctor, without notifying her of my past diagnosis of depression and GAD, prescribed me a prescription of a months worth of 20mg Lexapro. I am newish to the area and have a hard time actually sitting down and doing things like finding a primary care physician or psychiatrist so I have neither at the moment sadly. After finally finding a doctor the earliest they can get me in is July, needless to say I can barely function around people. I am an emotional mess, I constantly get dizzy and the frequency of the brain zaps is almost debilitating. I have almost been getting random numbness and a needle like sensation throughout my left side of my body. I also haven't slept well in the past week since the end of my prescription. If I had known I wouldn't have been able to find a doctor with earlier openings I wouldn't have started taking it. This is ridiculous and I can barely function at work due to the withdrawals symptoms, which have also put a strain on my relationships with my significant other as well as my roommates.

I have been taking Lexapro 20 mg for about 9 years. I began experiencing extreme irritability, anger and frustration. My doctor began weaning me off and adding Zoloft. That didn't work. Now my doctor is taking me down to 10 mg every day and 100 Wellbutrin. The ringing in my head is horrible. It hasn't stopped for 2 weeks. Has anyone else experienced this withdrawal symptom?

I have been on lexapro for about 6 months and had to quit cold turkey due to financial reasons and this is a complete NIGHTMARE! I have had brain zaps that feel like electricity running through my head, then a sensation of the breath being sucked out of me which in turn cause my lips to start tingling and this is just the tip of the iceberg. When these symptoms started they brought on what my neurologist is now calling a complicated migraine and when I get one of those I sometimes don't know who my family is during it and I develop aphasia which is all really scary. This has been going on since Father's Day. I am about to loose my mind! I really don't know how much more I can take.

When my doctor first prescribed Lexapro for me, I thought I had died and went to heaven; it really worked well for me (helped to alleviate depression and anxiety). After taking it for approximately 10 years ranging from 10 mg to 30 mg daily doses depending on a variety of life stressors, I was tired of trying to wean myself from the 30 mg doses. My doctor told me to decrease my dose from 20 to 10 mg for two weeks and then start 10 mg of Wellbutrin twice a day. The withdrawal symptoms which can be described as flu-like symptoms; dizziness, nausea, etc are awful but every so often the dizziness is accompanied by a whooshy/buzzing sensation in my head. Sometimes I need to sit down so I don't lose my balance. Based on what others have written on this blog, it seems it may have a few more months to suffer through before this hopefully better even though I have since I started taking the Wellbutrin. If anything, misery loves company and I feel less alone knowing that I am not the only one who is being tormented/tortured with these symptoms.

I feel for all you folks.I went in for a stress test and they found a lower heart beating. My Cadriologist told me to stop the lexipro immediately so its been a week and I have crazy headaches and moments of dizziness with some irratability. I wish you all the best and hope you find the answers and comfort you are looking for

I recently stopped taking lexapro, most likely two weeks ago. I have noticed a huge shift in my weight. I have gained about 10 pounds. Could this be a discontinuation side effect of the meds?

I was taking 5mg of Lexapro for over 2 years for horrible perimenopause symptoms. I tapered very slowly and have been off a month today. For almost two weeks I have never felt worse in my life. My anxiety is through the roof! I have constant hot flashes and terrible insomnia. My appetite is gone too. While on Lexapro, I gained weight and was hungry often. This is a horrible way to live. How long will this last? My husband says that my dose was so low that I could not possibly be affected by withdrawal symptoms. But, why do I feel so terrible when I have never felt this way before? I was on the drug for over 2 years. Any help is so appreciated.

Richard Wenzel: Most of the time influenza is spread from person to person by large respiratory droplets. Sometimes, the virus contaminates the environment and hand contact with the environment and subsequent touching of the nose or eye can lead to infection. I also think that uncommonly this virus can be spread by the airborne route: tiny droplets that stay airborne and do not fall to the ground quickly like the large respiratory droplets.

Richard Wenzel: Thanks very much for the questions.

These are known as the classic "flu-like" symptoms and are not unlike the symptoms of other illnesses such as malaria. Indeed many people have mistaken the onset of malaria for a bout of flu and have not taken appropriate action with sometimes serious consequences.

  • Rest
  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco
  • Take medication to relieve the symptoms

It is passed from person to person by droplet transmission, usually by breathing in diphtheria bacteria after an infected person has coughed, sneezed or even laughed. It can also be spread by handling used tissues or by drinking from a glass used by an infected person.

In tropical countries the infection may occur as skin ulcers and is known as cutaneous diphtheria which presents as infected skin lesions which lack a characteristic appearance.

After two to six weeks, the effects of toxins produced by the bacteria become apparent with severe muscle weakness, mainly affecting the muscles of the head and neck. Inflammation of the heart muscle may cause heart failure. Myocarditis, polyneuritis, and airway obstruction are common complications of respiratory diphtheria; death occurs in 5%-10% of respiratory cases.

Transmission is usually by direct person to person contact. Avoid very close contact with infected people particularly kissing and sharing bottles or glasses. It spreads quickly amongst infected people in crowded places. Cutaneous lesions are also important in transmission.

Diphtheria remains endemic in developing countries and the countries of the former Soviet Union have reported an epidemic which began in 1990.

Treatment: is specialised and requires medical supervision in hospital where Diphtheria antitoxin is given as an intramuscular or intravenous injection as soon as possible. The infection is then treated with antibiotics, such as penicillin or erythromycin.

Prevention: There is a vaccine for diphtheria. Most people in the UK receive their first dose as a child in the form of a combined vaccine called DTP (diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis).
Immunisation: is very effective but protective immunity is not present longer than 10 years after the last vaccination, so it is important for adults at risk to get a booster of tetanus-diptheria (Td) vaccine every 10 years.

Legionnaires Disease

TB is much more common in some parts of the world than in the UK. The risk to travellers is limited since transmission of the disease usually requires prolonged close contact. Sometimes the disease can be overwhelming; producing meningitis and coma; this particularly dangerous form is usually found in children and those who have not previously been vaccinated or exposed to the disease. Recently, antibiotic-resistant strains of tuberculosis have appeared.

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.

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a condition where blood clots develop in the bloodstream and bleeding also occurs. DIC can develop more often with acute promyelocytic leukemia, but also with other subtypes of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). Find out more about disseminated intravascular coagulation.

A rare, cancerous (malignant), green-coloured tumour that develops with myelogenous leukemia. It is formed by the buildup of abnormal blast cells (immature blood cells) that collect in soft tissue outside the bone marrow.

Chloromas develop most often in the bone, skin, lymph nodes, breast, ovary, meninges (membranes that cover and protect the brain or the spinal cord) and around the eye.

Also called extramedullary leukemia or granulocytic sarcoma.

Cold and flu season has begun, and with it the onslaught of sore throats, aches and coughs. Last week my 4 year old daughter complained bitterly of a sore throat, and no amount of consoling was going to solve it. I didn’t want to turn to a bottle of artificial color, flavor, sugar and other garbage to help her unless it was absolutely necessary. Instead, I pulled out the lemons, the honey and the ginger. And unlike some sore throat remedies, this one is delicious. In fact, I now have to learn to see through the “ooooh, sore throat, mommy” to see if she is actually sick or if she just wants a spoonful of this goodness.

Raw honey is antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and high in antioxidants. If possible buy raw honey from a local beekeeper who doesn’t sell all the honey the bees make and then feed them sugar-water through the winter.

Lemons are antibacterial, anti-viral, and contain immune-boosting vitamins and minerals. Choose organic to avoid pesticides.

Ginger is anti-inflammatory and helps soothe inflamed sinuses and throats. It also helps boost the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. Choose organic ginger to avoid pesticides.

Feel good about giving your children a spoonful of this remedy, or putting a tablespoon in some hot water for a hot drink. You are boosting their immune system and soothing aching little bodies with a healthy, all natural cold and flu remedy.

A person infected with flu virus may be contagious:

  • 24 hours before showing symptoms
  • Up to 7 days after onset of symptoms, and sometimes even a bit longer.

Young children and seniors can be contagious for up to 14 days following onset of symptoms.

If you have the flu, avoid direct contact as much as possible with people most at risk of complications. This way, you reduce the risk of transmitting the illness to them.

The best way to protect yourself from complications of the flu is through vaccination.

Where to get Vaccinated
For information on the Flu Vaccination Campaign for each region of Québec, see the Where to get vaccinated section.

Certain protection and cleanliness measures can also help prevent transmission of the flu.

  • Wash your hands often
  • Keep your immediate environment clean, such as furniture surfaces and counters
  • Follow advice for Preventing Transmission of Viruses and Bacteria
  • Stay at home as soon as you notice symptoms of the flu. Unless otherwise advised by a doctor, home is the best place for treatment. By staying at home, you limit contact with other people or with other infections that may cause complications. You also limit transmission of the virus
  • Follow advice for Coughing or Sneezing Without Contaminating

    Quand tu parles de colloquialisme, tu fais référence à “décr&%*ssé” j’imagine? Pourtant j’utilise ce terme à tous les jours…
    Merci pour ton commentaire!

    J’adore tes infographiques… les facultés de sciences universitaires devraient les utiliser, ainsi que tous les bureaux de médecin!!
    Suggestion pour faire suite à cette présentation: ça serait vraiment bien si tu pouvais expliquer pourquoi on ne peut pas avoir la grippe avec le vaccin anti-grippal…
    Merci de nous faire rire ainsi, continues!

    Wow, merci beaucoup Julie. Les infographiques, c’est ce que j’aime le plus créer. Je joins donc l’utile à l’agréable
    J’adore ton idée concernant le vaccin anti-grippal! J’ai récemment eu une suggestion pour les vaccins de voyage également. J’en prends bonne note pour une prochaine chronique!

    Si je puis me permettre, je trouve que ♫♪♫ douleurs musculaires intenses ♪♫♪ est une douce métaphore…
    Tu aurais dû écrire que la grippe donne mal à des endroits de ton corps que tu savais même pas qu’ils existaient. Et qu’on continue à avoir mal longtemps. Et qu’on est fatigué pendant un mois, en plus (je l’ai eu pour la première fois à 30 ans et je me suis même pas mise en arrêt de travail… mais bon, je suis phobique sociale et consulter le médecin, remplir le formulaire de mise en arrêt, mettre mon employeur dans la mouise pour chercher une collègue pour me remplacer, c’était trop pour moi… on est névrosé ou on l’est pas…).

    Ayant eu la grippe une seule fois dans ma vie personnellement, je suis 100% d’accord avec toi! Chaque muscle de mon corps était douloureux. Rien à voir avec une douleur musculaire après un effort physique. Vraiment bizarre et plutôt désagréable.

    Bravo pour votre site en général. A propos du rhume, il manque la réponse à la question essentielle: est ce que prendre froid donne le rhume? Ou sortir avec les cheveux mouillés? Ou attraper un chaud et froid en passant du métro à dehors? Ou pire, en marchant pieds nus sur un carrelage froid (il parait que c’est la mort assurée…)

    Tu obtiendras la réponse à ces questions légendaires en répondant au quiz suivant sur les remèdes de grand-mère!

    J’arrive en retard, mais je dois commenter. J’en étais à lire TOUS les billets pour me divertir et m’instruire. Mais la maudite grippe… Je l’ai eue une fois y’a de ça un an et demi. Tsé, quand tu te TRAÎNES pour aller chez vous, que tu penses perdre connaissance dans le métro, que t’as mal au point de te demander si t’as pas confondu le 2 de 27 ans avec un 8 comme dans 87 ans. ÇA.

    Cré moé, si t’as eu la grippe une fois, tu sais c’est quoi. Tu ne confonds plus JAMAIS avec un p’tit rhume.

    Pis oui, décrissé, c’est le mot (j’aime pas me censurer, j’aime trop mes jurons pour ça).

    C’est bien la grippe en effet. J’ajouterais bien quelque chose mais tu as parfaitement résumé tous les symptômes classiques!

    Je suis abonné alors, j’ai dû l’avoir 3 fois de sûr et peut-être une quatrième, mais j’ai des circonstances atténuantes ayant été imunodéprimé. Généralement je tape entre 40° et 41° et c’est un peu le mode survie pendant trois/quatre jours. Le seuil de la douleur dépend bien évidemment des individus mais je trouve les douleurs musculaires plus (très) dérangeantes (on se sent comme du flanc à 70°) qu’insupportables.
    Sur le contenu de l’article, le graphique est plutôt bien fichu, humoristique, surtout la partie des AB!

    Merci beaucoup Philippe! Je n’ose même pas imaginer ce que peut être une grippe avec un système immunitaire compromis…

    Many people (not everyone!) who start a low carb diet experience what’s called the “keto flu” or the “induction flu” in the first few days while the body is adapting to burning ketones instead of glucose.

    The basic symptoms are:

    • headaches
    • nausea
    • upset stomach
    • Lack of mental clarity (brain fog)
    • sleepiness
    • fatigue

    It’s called the “keto flu” for a reason: you feel sick. I’ve gone through it, and it wasn’t a pleasant experience. Fortunately, it only lasted four days (2 of them were pretty bad) but then suddenly I woke up feeling much better, less hungry and my energy level was high and consistent throughout the day! While at one point (or three or four) I thought to myself: “what the serious F am I doing? I’m going to die!” but I plowed through it, and when it was over I didn’t regret a thing because what I gained mentally and physically was 100% worth it.

    I have an autoimmune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis, and Fibromyalgia to top it off. So, I’m no stranger to brain fog and fatigue, but the fatigue and brain fog that comes with keto flu is a little different, and feel much more like having the regular flu.

    It depends. Some people don’t experience any symptoms at all, but some suffer anywhere from a day to a week. In rare cases up to 15 days. Everybody’s bodies are different, and some people handle switching over better than others. You might consider starting keto on the weekend or sometime when you’re able to get good rest deal with the symptoms.

    For those of you that are going through the keto flu, don’t give up! I know you feel like it’s never going to get better but stick with it and you´ll be so happy you did! I’m telling you, waking up refreshed for the first time in years, not getting the afternoon “blah” feeling and stuffing my face with carbs to try to boost my energy is the best side effect of the lchf/keto diet I’ve experienced. Okay, losing weight while eating good food, feeling full and satisfied is great too 😉

    How to lessen the symptoms of keto flu

    First, you have to understand why your body is reacting this way. Your body’s been burning glucose for energy, so it’s full of enzymes that are waiting to deal with the carbs you eat (and probably store them as fat) reference. But now the body needs to make new enzymes that burn fat for fuel instead of carbs, and the transition period causes your flu-like symptoms. There are some things you can do to lessen the signs of the keto flu and to make it go away sooner (to force the body to transition sooner) Ok, let’s get to the significant part.

    • First of all – you’re probably dehydrated. Drink PLENTY of water while you’re on the keto diet. And then some more.
    • Watch your electrolytes. When the body is getting rid of excess insulin from your former carb-crazy diet, you´ll lose lots of fluids that your body has retained. This causes the rapid weight loss most people see in their first few days of ketosis, it’s mostly water, sorry. When you lose all the retained water you also lose electrolytes like sodium, magnesium and potassium. When you lack them, you´ll feel like crap. So, when you’re feeling ill on the keto flu try things like chicken/beef broth and look for foods rich in these minerals. Take a multi-vitamin and a multi-mineral. I have a hard time getting my electrolytes balance correct. But I try because it’s essential when you eat low carb. 5 grams of sodium, 1 of potassium and 0.3 of magnesium a day or you´ll feel bad. I don’t like taking pills, so I supplement with electrolyte tablets in my water. Usually, I go for the High5 brand and add lite salt that has extra potassium in it. You might think that drinking salt water doesn’t sound great, but honestly, I don’t notice it because of the electrolyte tabs. If you get leg cramps, try to drink bouillon for extra salt, and have a relaxing magnesium drink before bed.
    • Eat more fat – Yup, load up. Butter everything, bacon everything, eat fatty meats and put heavy cream in your coffee. The fat consumption will force your body to hurry up the transition. You´ll think this is crazy and think you´ll never get skinny eating this way, but you will.
    • Don’t overeat protein – The body can transform protein into glucose. So, if you eat too much of it in the first days it will slow down the transition. Go for fatty meat and cheese if you can, add fat to protein shakes etc. The first instinct when you’re on a diet might be to nibble on a chicken breast to lose weight. Don’t do that unless it’s smothered in cheese, wrapped with bacon and has some mayo on the side 🙂

    tl;dr: Drink water, replenish electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, potassium) with food and supplements. Remember to drink broth, eat fat and not too much protein.

    A number of methods and exercises have been developed that help a person both mentally and physically during withdrawal. Specific supplements can help with diarrhea, vomiting or other symptoms. Assists are simple and gentle procedures that help relieve physical pain and mental anxiety. Objective exercises calm a person’s mind and enable him to direct his attention toward recovery and the future and get attention off pain and the past. Those going through this process often remark on how manageable this withdrawal procedure is.

    This is followed by an innovative detoxification step. Opiate abusers experience a mental fog from using these drugs (as do users of many drugs). Drug residues that are not fully eliminated from the body can cause this fog to persist, even long after drugs are discontinued. The Narconon New Life Detoxification combines sauna, exercise and nutrition to activate the body’s ability to flush out these residual toxins. The result is clearer thinking and an improved outlook on life. Most people also state that their cravings for drugs are greatly reduced or eliminated altogether.

    A person who wishes to stay drug-free for the long haul must then overcome a mental or psychological need for drugs. This means building the skills to deal with life as it is, without hiding or trying to escape. This is the final phase of the Narconon program.

    Learn how this program can help someone you love recover from an addiction that may seem hopeless.

    Bei der Influenza handelt es sich um eine Infektionskrankheit bei Menschen, die durch Viren ausgelöst wird. Es handelt sich dabei umgangssprachlich um eine Virusgrippe, die auch echte Grippe genannt wird. Häufig werden fälschlicherweise auch harmloserer Viruserkrankungen, wie ein grippaler Infekt als Grippe bezeichnet. Die echte Grippe wird durch Viren aus dem Influenzavirus A oder B ausgelöst und ist nicht mit einem grippalen Infekt vergleichbar, da der Krankheitsverlauf schwerwiegender ist.

    Erkrankungen, die durch Influenzaviren hervorgerufen werden, gibt es weltweit und werden in den meisten Fällen durch die Viren aus der Gruppe Influenzaviren A oder B ausgelöst. Diese Viruserkrankungen haben unterschiedlichste Auslöser und Ursachen. Auch die Behandlungsmethoden sind vielfältig. In seltenen Fällen kommt es aber auch zu Erkrankungen, die durch Influenza C Viren ausgelöst werden. Dieses Krankheitsbild ist jährlich aber nur bei ca 20 bis 30 Prozent der Menschen weltweit zu finden. In seltenen Fällen spricht man auch von einer Epidemie, das ist der Fall, wenn sich der Virus sehr schnell in einem Gebiet ausbreitet und eine Mehrheit der dort lebenden Menschen betroffen ist.

    Da es sich um eine Viruserkrankung handelt, begünstigt ein schwaches Immunsystem die Ansteckungsgefahr um ein Vielfaches. Die Influenza Viruserkrankung wird als Tröpfcheninfektion über die Schleimhäute übertragen. Dazu zählen, Mund, Nase, Augen und Atemwege. Der Virus erreicht den Körper über diese Eintrittsorte und wird durch andere erkrankte Personen durch, Niesen, Sprechen, Husten und Atmen übertragen. Die größeren Tröpfchen, die dabei entstehen, sinken sehr schnell nach unten und verkleben dann an rauen Oberflächen.

    Wenn die Exspirationströpfchen aber bereits in der Luft trocknen, können die darin enthaltenen Viren sich über die Luft verteilen und über mehrere Stunden infektiös bleiben. Dieses Verbreitungsschema wird besonders in den Wintertagen durch eine trockene und warme Heizungsluft begünstigt, die dazu beiträgt, dass sich der Influenza Virus besonders im Winter schnell ausbreiten kann. Auch durch das Berühren von Infizierten oder Oberflächen, an denen sich bereits Tröpfchen Erreger befinden, kann man sich schnell anstecken. Die Viren überleben auf glatten Oberflächen zwei Tage und können so durch Berühren mit den Händen leicht in die eigenen Schleimhäute gelangen.

    Bei der Influenza gibt es eine Vielzahl an Symptomen, die nicht alle auftreten müssen und auch in verschiedenen Zeitabschnitten auftreten können. Nach der Ansteckung kann es zwei Tage dauern, bis sich die ersten Symptome bemerkbar machen. Oft werden die zahlreichen Symptome auch mit einer anderen Atemwegserkrankung oder einen grippalem Infekt verwechselt.
    Zu den Symptomen zählen ein stark ausgeprägtes Unwohlsein und ein allgemeines Krankheitsgefühl. Auch hohes Fieber, das bis 40 Grad auftritt und Schüttelfrost, sind Begleiter des Influenza Virus. Auch ausgeprägte Appetitlosigkeit und Übelkeit, die durchaus auch zum Erbrechen führen kann, werden immer wieder als Symptome von Infizierten Personen genannt.

    Zusätzlich treten Kopfschmerzen und Gliederschmerzen vermehrt auf, sodass sich die Infizierten Personen oftmals nicht mehr dazu in Stande fühlen einem normalen Tagesablauf nachzukommen. Ausgeprägte Müdigkeit und Lustlosigkeit schließen sich den Symptomen der Influenza gerne an. Sehr häufig kommt es auch zu einem trockenen Hals und einer trockenen Kehle, die nicht selten zu einem trockenen und anstrengenden Husten führen können. Auch eine sehr angeschwollene Nasenschleimhaut, die zu einer laufenden Nase führt und starkes Augentränen, das nicht nur lästig ist, sondern auch oftmals zu Verkrustungen führen kann, ist ein häufiges Symptom bei dieser Viruserkrankung.

    Eine eindeutige Diagnose wird in den meisten Fällen mithilfe eines Nasenabstrichs aus dem hinteren Nasenbereich gestellt, oder aus einem Abstrich aus dem Rachen. Aufgrund dieser Abstriche kann man eine gute Diagnose stellen. Auch eine Blutuntersuchung gibt Aufschluss, ob es sich um eine Influenza Infektion handelt. Des Weiteren gibt es auch einen speziellen Influenza Test, der innerhalb von 15 Minuten eine klare Diagnose stellen kann, dieser Test ist eine wichtige Hilfe bei der Diagnosestellung. Eine weitere wichtige Methode ist Influenza PCR diese Methode basiert auf der Molekularbiologie und bietet die Möglichkeit eine Diagnose zu stellen.

    Eine Influenza Viruserkrankung wird in den meisten Fällen mit antiviralen Medikamenten behandelt. Diese Medikamente sind verschreibungspflichtig und sollen den Krankheitsverlauf verkürzen und die Symptome abschwächen. Ein wichtiger Punkt bei diesen Medikamenten ist eine genaue Beachtung der Dosierung und der Art der Einnahme. Hierbei sollte man unbedingt auf die Anweisungen des behandelnden Arztes vertrauen.

    Auch die Behandlung einzelner Symptome ist möglich, so werden gegebenenfalls Mittel eingenommen um das Fieber zu senken oder um das allgemeine Unwohlsein zu behandeln. Diese Medikamente dienen allerdings nicht der Eliminierung der Viren oder der Verhinderung der Vermehrung der Viren. Wenn es während einer Influenza Infektion auch zu einer bakteriellen Infektion kommt, ist es ratsam, dieser mit einer Antibiotika Behandlung zu begegnen. Des Weiteren ist es ratsam über dem gesamten Zeitraum der Influenza Erkrankung ausreichend viel Flüssigkeit zu sich zunehmen, um einer Austrocknung vorzubeugen, auch eine gute Luftfeuchtigkeit und Medikamente die dabei helfen die Nasenschleimhaut zu beruhigen sind empfehlenswert.

    Das Anhalten der Symptome bei einer Influenza Viruserkrankung verläuft über einen Zeitraum zwischen 7 und 14 Tagen. Erst wenn die Influenza Viren komplett bekämpft worden sind, kann man von einer Genesung sprechen. Meistens beginnt die Infektion sehr plötzlich und braucht dann Ihre Zeit, bis sie wieder abheilt. Auch Nachwirkungen wie Appetitlosigkeit und anhaltende Schwächegefühle wie bei einer beginnenden Erkrankung können noch mehrere Wochen nach behandelter Influenza Infektion auftreten.

    Q: Can all mosquitoes transmit West Nile Virus?

    A: No, two species, the Aedes aegypti and Culex pipiens mosquitoes appear to be two major vectors of West Nile Virus.

    Q: Is the West Nile Virus fatal for all those who contract it?

    A: No, although cases can become serious, here in the United States, with proper medical treatment, recovery can be expected. Interestingly, many researchers feel that others get mild cases of the disease, only exhibiting symptoms similar to the flu. Some people don’t get any symptoms at all and never realize they were infected with West Nile Virus!

    Q: Besides, West Nile Virus, what other diseases can mosquitoes spread?

    A: Mosquitoes are vectors (carriers) of Yellow Fever, Malaria, Dengue Fever, Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever, several forms of Encephalitis (St. Louis, La Crosse, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Western Equine Encephalitis, Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis) in humans.

    They also spread several diseases that affect pets and other animals including heartworm, hypersensitivity in cats, Avian influenza, Rift Valley Fever and Equine Encephalitis.

    Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Yellow Fever

    A: Yellow Fever, a viral mosquito-borne disease, has occurred mainly in Africa and South America, although cases have also been reported in the Caribbean Islands.

    Q: Where does Yellow Fever get its name?

    A: Yellow refers to the jaundice some people develop when they contract the disease. Jaundice results from liver deterioration or failure and can turn the skin and whites of the eyes a yellowish color.

    Q: What is Yellow Fever and what are the symptoms?

    A: It usually takes anywhere from 3 to 6 days after being bitten by the mosquito for symptoms to develop, if they develop at all. In milder cases, the person has no symptoms, but in more serious cases, the patient will develop typical flu-like symptoms associated with many other illnesses.

    A: If the patient doesn’t improve within three to four days of the onset of the symptoms, they may begin to go through a “toxic phase” where fever redevelops, jaundice appears, external and internal bleeding occurs, and kidneys may begin to fail. Patients can also develop delirium, seizures, heart problems, and or lapse into a coma. Mortality rate is about 50% once patients have reached this point. Those that recover do not seem to have any debilitating consequences of the disease.

    A: There are three words to describe how it spreads: monkeys, mosquitoes and humans. For example, a monkey having the disease is bitten by a mosquito who then transmits the disease to a human – this type usually occurs in the jungle in areas where people are working.

    In some cases, the monkey is not part of the cycle. It can also be human to mosquito to human. These transmissions often cause large outbreaks in urban areas.

    Q: Is there a vaccine for Yellow Fever?

    A: Actually, there is a vaccine for this potentially fatal disease, but the number of cases keeps increasing. As people travel further, and human dwellings encroach on previously undeveloped lands, cases will continue to spread, reaching areas where it has never been a problem up to that point.

    Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Dengue Fever

    A: Dengue Fever is a viral disease spread mainly by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. There are actually four viruses that cause the disease, and if infected, a person is believed to gain lifelong immunity from that virus and limited immunity to the other three Dengue Fever viruses.
