Although it may make you feel miserable, the common cold is usually a mild illness that goes away relatively quickly. On average, adults get two to four colds each year, and young children experience about twice that many.

What Causes the Common Cold?

When you get a cold, you've probably been infected by one of more than 200 different viruses. These viruses are easily spread through droplets of fluid from a cough, sneeze, or runny nose. Cold viruses often circulate by touch, but they can also be inhaled if they become airborne.

People with colds are most contagious during the first few days after they have been infected with a virus. Spending a lot of time around other people indoors can help spread colds — a common occurrence for schoolchildren. Also, low humidity, as during the winter months, makes an ideal living environment for viruses.

What Are Cold Symptoms?

Cold symptoms usually develop one to three days after exposure to a virus. Symptoms may include:

  • Scratchy, sore throat
  • Sneezing and coughing
  • Runny nose or nasal congestion
  • Reduced sense of taste and smell
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Fever up to 102 degrees Fahrenheit (more common in infants and young children)

If you are continuously exhibiting some of these symptoms, this may be a sign of allergy rather than virus. Visit your doctor if you suspect allergies are the cause of your runny nose and watery eyes — allergy tests examine your body's reaction to common allergens to determine what may be causing your discomfort.

Should You Call the Doctor?

In most cases, you don't need to see a doctor when dealing with a cold. Call your doctor if you are experiencing:

  • Severe symptoms or symptoms that last for about two weeks
  • High fever
  • Severely swollen glands in your neck or jaw
  • Ear pain
  • Sinus headache
  • Fainting, dizziness, or confusion
  • Severe and persistent cough
  • Chest pain or pressure
  • Problems breathing
  • A sudden outburst of asthma or other pre-existing lung condition
  • Severe or continuous vomiting

Children may exhibit additional symptoms that should be brought to a health care provider's attention. Call your doctor if the child has a cold and experiences a fever above 103 degrees Fahrenheit, bluish skin, behavioral changes, worsening of pre-existing conditions, vomiting, or abdominal pain.

Q: What are the symptoms of LaCrosse Encephalitis?

A: Like many of the arboviral encephalitides, most cases have symptoms usually associated with the flu. More severe cases may result in encephalitis, meningitis, paralysis, seizures, neurological damage, coma, and death. Those that survive severe cases often will need lifelong care.

Q: Is there a type of mosquito that carries this disease?

A: Yes, the vector for this disease is the ochlerotatus triseriatus, commonly known as the eastern tree-hole mosquito. The common name should give you a good idea of one of the habitats where this mosquito and its larvae can be found! Interestingly, the female prefer to search for their victims in daylight, but in shaded areas such as forests or woodlands.

Frequently Asked Questions about St. Louis Encephalitis

Q: Is this virus a serious threat to people here in the United States?

A: Although most cases of the disease here in the U.S. have been in the Southeastern and Midwestern areas, it can be found throughout North America. It is not one of the major arboviruses and most of the cases do not cause serious illness. However, some people, including the elderly, can end up with a very serious or fatal case of the disease. Most people don’t even realize they have the disease! (This disease also occurs in South America.)

Q: What are the symptoms of St. Louis Encephalitis?

A: Symptoms are very much like symptoms of the flu with headache and body aches, fever, nausea, and so forth. In serious cases, encephalitis and meningitis may occur.

Q: Is there a vaccine to prevent St. Louis Encephalitis?

A: No, unfortunately, not at this time. There are no medicines specifically designed to cure this disease. If a case is severe, medical attention is needed.

Q: Is St. Louis Encephalitis one of the diseases mosquitoes carry?

A: No, it is mainly the culex pipiens females that are the vectors of this disease. These mosquitoes prefer small reservoirs of water such as old tires, flowerpots, rain gutters, and other water-collecting containers for laying their eggs.

Frequently Asked Questions about Western Equine Encephalitis

Q: Where does Western Equine Encephalitis occur?

A: Basically, it can be found in the western regions of the U.S. and Canada, although the area affected has been spreading eastward, especially in places where the number of irrigated farmlands has escalated.

A: Like, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, the symptoms of Western Equine Encephalitis are very similar to those of the flu with headache and body aches, fever, nausea, and so forth. In serious cases, encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), meningitis, coma, and ultimately, death, may occur.

Unfortunately, it is harshest on young children, and those who survive severe cases may end up needing lifelong care. Horses are also susceptible to the virus and may die from WEE in severe cases.

Q: Is WEE one of the diseases mosquitoes spread?

A: Yes, the Culex Tarsalis mosquito is the culprit here in the United States. It should be noted that the female mosquito can travel 10-15 miles from its “birth home” in search of a blood meal. This means that people in the suburban neighborhoods within a 10-15 mile radius of irrigated land can be prime targets.

Q: Can I catch Malaria here in the United States?

A: It is possible, although almost all of the cases were ones that people caught when they traveled to countries where Malaria outbreaks occur. We have two Anopheles mosquitoes that are responsible for transmitting the parasites that cause Malaria: Anopheles quadrimaculatus in the eastern part of the country and Anopheles freeborni in the western part.

Q: Is Malaria Fatal? Do people die from Malaria here in the U.S.?

A: Yes, people do die from the disease, although it all depends on the medical attention the patient receives. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that of 1,337 cases of malaria reported in 2002 here in the U.S., only 8 deaths occurred.

11) can arsenic poisoning cause decreased hearing/sight, severe pain in joints?

9) I've been poisoned by my wife for at least two years: small daily doses of As2O3 in my coffee. Lack of imagination. The worst consequences are the peripheral neuropathy and the brain insult (encephalopathy). My physician told me there is no treatment and invited me to choose between Lourdes and Fatima. A common prayer from my bed could be effective as well.

8) I was poisoned by my husbands secretary. My symptoms were severe diarrhea, stomach pains, vomiting. I was hospitalized where it turned into peritonitis and meningitis. The doctors could not say what I had, however they say I may have consumed poison.

7) I can't believe all this! Run, people, run if you think you are poisoned.

6) I've been trying to stop this for years. my brother married a crazy woman and she has admitted that she had poisoned me when i was expecting my first child in 1976 when i was six and a half months pregnant, and has since admitted that she poisoned her mum after her mum warned her not to pick and play with the poisonous plants in the garden.

She likes to grow lots of foxglove and trains poison ivy around the garden furniture. She said she put them in her cake and fed it to her mother. I went into fits after she fetched me some pickles that she knew i really liked. I gave birth to my unborn daughter in pieces. The hospital said i had eclampsia and toxemia! My blood pressure was through the roof. I was sick overnight and had severe dysentery. They lost me twice in the operating room and banned everyone from visiting.

I have tried endlessly to have her and my brother arrested. She repeatedly kept saying, "We were sick of you!" She was jealous, i think, of not having a mum, and i am the only true daughter. They say the profile of a young girl losing her mum is that they still want to play and it turns to sexual abuse too. She is definitely an abuser too.

5) My younger brother is poisoning me, my two sons and my mother (which is also his mother too). Our symptoms include stomach pains, slight shortness of breath, diarrhea, red eyes, sore throat, slight lapses in memory, problems sleeping, numbness in the tips of fingers (my mother), slight chest pain, sore / irritated throat, muscle and joint pain and coughing.

According to his now ex-wife (He used to beat her and threaten her children) he is Bipolar. My whole family believes it also. His ex-wife is a neurological nurse. According to the neurosurgeons that she worked with say that my brother is Bipolar.

He suffers from really bad headaches and his personality changes daily. One minute he's sweet, caring, very charming and very funny and the next minute he's very quiet reserved and closed out to the world. Please give me any and all information ASAP. I would like to involve local law enforcement. Thank you so much.

3) For the last few years now, I've been in and out of the emergency room because my left leg would just swell up. An MRI was taken except for toxic testing. They found pinched nerves from my neck and my liver enzymes are high.

I am not sure what is going on, except the doctor from the emergency room told me if I don't get better to see him. Not to see anybody else, he just told me that my intestines are swollen up or inflamed.

Headache severe, malaise, nausea sweating and vomiting my withdrawl experience

Yup….that’s withdrawal from aspertame. Stick with it.

I think many doctors don’t know aspartame can and is addictive. I was at the doctors today, (i gave up pepsi max 5 days ago and i’ve been feeling like crap, not able to attend work) and he said aspartame isn’t addictive.:-/

Multiple doctors have told me the same thing. How can we get them to warn folks about this problem if they don’t even believe what we tell them about withdrawal?

I have stopped drinking diet coke for 2 weeks, and I use to drink a case a week. Went to doctors 3 weeks ago about dizziness she put me on steroids and said it was inner ear infection. Took all meds, 3 weeks later still have dizziness going to make another appointment.

Try to stay away from MSG product as we’ll.. The two go hand and hand and it’s a silent killer…

Yikes….these doctors are scary. Your symptoms will go away in 4-6 weeks.

I am on day 9 with no Diet Coke. I have called myself the poster child for aspartame poisoning for YEARS, but I never wanted to give it up. I stopped during all 3 of my pregnancies but started right back up after having the babies. This is the longest I have gone without stopping as my youngest child is now 8. I am having all kinds of withdrawal symptoms, but I am wondering if anyone else has been eating the house apart like I have! I am going to bust out of my clothes like the Incredible Hulk soon if I don’t watch out, but I am having to do something to keep from drinking Diet Coke. Anyone else have this symptom? If so, does it go away eventually too?

This is day 6 of Aspartame withdrawals, The ringing in my ears is not as bad as it was on day 1, but still there. I was doing 4-6 12OZ. can of diet Pepsi caffeine free a day and then started on sugar free hard candy for dry mouth.I also was drinking decaf coffee, but using 6 packets of Spenda a day.also was getting tinkling thuout my body. My doctor put me on Gabapentin because she said I had nerve damage and that seemed to help the tingling I have many other health issues and I’m not sure if it because of the Aspartame or being overweight. But the terrible ringing in my ears must be from that. I have stopped it all and am drinking water and a occasional glass of milk. I think I should sue someone, but don’t even know where to start.

I recommend taking Psyllium and Betonite to detox. You can get these at the health food store or grocery store that carries vitamins and health food. I was very sick for 3 days and took the advice of someone on this site and had my friend buy them for me because I was too sick to get out of bed. Within 12 hours of taking these I felt immediate relief. I feel so much better than I did a year ago… it’s amazing!

Today is day 6 since giving up Diet Coke. I have never felt so ill. If anybody speaks to me today I’m likely to cry. I had 3 nights of going to bed at 8pm and sleeping through until morning. The next 2 nights, I was awake until the early hours and woke at 7am feeling like a deflated balloon. I don’t think anyone realises how bad that stuff is. I’m now 46 years old and Diet Coke was available in 1982 in the UK. I’ve been drinking it ever since. I was a slim teenager. 7st 10lbs until my early twenties. I now weigh my highest weight ever at 17 stone 10lbs. I feel sluggish, have depression, have IBS, muscle and joint pain. Until recently I was taking 3 different kinds of prescription tablets. I’ve been pill free for over 2 weeks and thought it was the pills that made me feel bad. I read something on Facebook last week saying that my symptoms are likely to be Diet Coke (aspartame). As I said, I now feel worse than ever. I had breast cancer 6 years ago too. I’ve also read that I’ll feel like sh*t for a while more. Just hope I can get through it. Sorry if my message seems to be all over the place but head’s mucked up too. Good luck to everyone going through this. I can’t believe it’s still legal 🙁

I quit 1 year ago this week after 25 years of drinking Diet Coke. I recommend taking Psyllium and Betonite to detox. You can get these at the health food store or grocery store that carries vitamins and health food. I was very sick for 3 days and took the advice of someone on this site and has my friend buy them for me because I was too sick to get out of bed. Within 12 hours of taking these I felt immediate relief. I feel so much better than I did a year ago. Aspartame free is the way to be. I hope this helps you.

Wow, reading your story about this poisonous addiction to Diet Coke is like reading a biography about myself! I have been drinking 6-8 Diet Cokes per day for 20 years. I’m 45! I also had breast cancer 5 years ago- the first person in my extended family to ever have cancer. I started to feel sickly a couple years before the cancer- headaches, fatigue, depression, terrible joint pain, hair loss, ringing in both ears, irritability and mood problems, racing pulse, itchy skin, and more! My doctors keep wanting to put me on more and more medications. I decided yesterday I had to get control of this or I would kill myself because I am at my wits end feeling miserable. I have been suspecting my Diet Coke being the cause all along- this is my first day without one and I’m feeling edgy, achy, and like I won’t make it, but I am determined to feel good again- I told my husband there will be no more of that crap in the house and I’m hoping I can make it through this! I get sick to my stomach when I think about the possibility of losing both my breasts because of that terrible poison! I would like to hear how your coming with this- I normally don’t message people but your story sounded so similar to mine! Good luck to you!

Eine normale Erkältung beginnt häufig mit Schnupfen, leichtes Fieber kann dazukommen. Die Symptome wechseln sich ab und treten in milderer Form auf als bei der Grippe.

Bei der Grippe dauert es nach der Ansteckung mit dem Virus wenige Stunden bis drei Tage, bis erste Symptome auftreten. Schon während dieser sogenannten Inkubationszeit kann man andere anstecken; also auch, wenn man noch keine Beschwerden spürt.

Ist die Grippe einmal ausgebrochen, kann der Betroffene andere noch etwa drei bis fünf Tage anstecken.

Kinder können das Grippevirus sogar bis zu sieben Tage nach dem Auftreten der Symptome weitergeben.

Bei sonst Gesunden ist meist keine spezielle Therapie erforderlich. Bei Bedarf können Sie Medikamente gegen die Symptome einnehmen, etwa Mittel gegen Fieber oder Schmerzen.

Wichtig: Kinder mit Grippe dürfen keinesfalls sogenannte Salicylate (wie ASS) erhalten, da sie hierdurch eine lebensbedrohliche Erkrankung namens Reye-Syndrom entwickeln können. Wirkstoffe wie Paracetamol oder Ibuprofen sind geeignet.

Virushemmende Mittel kommen meist nur dann infrage, wenn der Verdacht oder ein erhöhtes Risiko besteht, dass die Grippe schwer verläuft. Das kann der Fall sein bei Schwangeren oder.

. bei älteren Personen und bei Menschen mit chronischen Erkrankungen, etwa der Lunge, des Herzens oder des Stoffwechsels (z.B. Diabetes).

Fachleute diskutieren noch, wie gut die Therapie mit Medikamenten, die gegen die Viren gerichtet sind, wirklich hilft. Zum Einsatz kommen meist sogenannte Neuraminidasehemmer, etwa die Wirkstoffe Zanamivir und Oseltamivir.

Manchmal kommt es während der Grippeerkrankung zu einer Infektion mit Bakterien (im Bild: Streptokokken). Dann kann es hilfreich sein, ein Antibiotikum einzunehmen, das gegen den ursächlichen Erreger wirkt. Gegen Viren wirken Antibiotika nicht!

Wer an Grippe erkrankt ist, kann dazu beitragen, sie nicht weiter zu verbreiten: Bedecken Sie beim Niesen und Husten Ihre Nase und Ihren Mund. Achten Sie darauf, nicht in die nackte Hand zu husten oder niesen, sondern z.B. in die Armbeuge.

Weiterer Tipp: Waschen Sie sich oft die Hände und.

. werfen Sie gebrauchte Einmaltaschentücher umgehend in den Müll. Stofftaschentücher sind nicht geeignet.

Vorbeugen lässt sich mit der Grippe-Impfung. Sie empfiehlt sich vor allem für ältere Menschen.

Fachgesellschaften empfehlen die Grippe-Impfung allgemein auch für Schwangere ab dem zweiten Drittel der Schwangerschaft und.

D.C.: Is is safe to travel to Central America?

Richard Wenzel: I have not heard of any reports of influenza in Central America, but it is likely that some cases will come to light in the next few weeks. CDC will suggest postponing non-essential travel to Mexico today. So the best advise is to stay alert to their travel advisories.

Fredericksburg, Va.: What is the possibility of EU countries closing borders to international travel from the United States?

Richard Wenzel: Whenever there are risks of transmission of new infections from one country to another, there is always some risk that travel restrictions will result. We saw that with SARS and could see that with swine flu if the numbers and severity increase in the US.

Cleveland, Ohio: The case of swine flu in Ohio occurred in Elyria, which is very close to Cleveland. Is it possible that Tamiflu will be made available for people in our area to take now as a precautionary measure? You mentioned that people who have been "exposed" to the virus should take it, but how does one know if one has in fact been exposed?

Richard Wenzel: This is a difficult question. The exposures that qualify for prophylaxis include those within families or those with prolonged exposure such as that of a school. Unless the outbreak is wide spread, general prophylaxis is not indicated.

State College, Pa.: Why is this virus receiving such rapid, mass attention when there are so many viruses passed around all the time?

Richard Wenzel: This is a new virus not seen before, it may have caused 100 deaths in Mexico, and it has been quickly identified in countries on three continents. Influenza is more than a common cold with respect to its ability to harm patients. These are some of the reasons for the attention given to the new virus.

Washington, D.C.: I'm having a little trouble reconciling the president's "there no immediate danger" comments as well as the Post's Check-up blog that basically says "chill out folks" with your comments suggesting everything from face masks to foregoing handshakes to consternation that the threat level has not been elevated. Which is it?

Richard Wenzel: This is a serious problem and now is the time to prepare for all contingencies. We need to be extra cautious until we know the extent of transmission and of the virulence of the virus. It is also a time for scenario playing, i.e. the what ifs: Communication, drug supply and delivery, infection control recommendations for hospitals, development of hot lines that might be needed etc. In summary, this is the time for special precautions, but not panic or alarm.

Penn Quarter, D.C.: Is this the same swine flu that was around in the mid 1970s? Will the shot I got then help me now?

Richard Wenzel: Unfortunately this is different virus, and it is unlikely that you are protected, but I have not seen specific antibody analyses yet.

Virginia Beach, Va.: Are there any special precautions or drugs that my son should take as a patient currently undergoing chemotherapy, hence with a very compromised immune system?

Richard Wenzel: At this point, I would not recommend prophylaxis. However, if the epidemic spreads to your city, it may be prudent to offer prophylaxis for a period of time. You should consult with his oncologist about the timing for such an approach.

20002: Can this virus be spread through the air? Or does you have to touch something that has the virus on it and then touch your mouth, nose, etc.

Ausgelöst wird die Grippe durch bestimmte Viren: die sogenannten Influenzaviren vom Typ A, B und C.

Der Hauptunterschied zwischen Grippe und Erkältung ("grippaler Infekt"): Bei der Grippe treten die Symptome gleichzeitig und heftiger auf:

Es kommt zu hohem Fieber über 38,5 Grad Celsius,.

. das mit Schüttelfrost einhergehen kann.

Das Fieber kann über mehrere Tage andauern und schwächt den Betroffenen.

Auch Husten zählt bei einer Grippe zu den gängigen Beschwerden.

Manche Betroffene leiden unter Halsschmerzen und Heiserkeit,.

. andere Grippepatienten klagen zudem über Kopf- und Gliederschmerzen.

Bis die Grippe ausgestanden ist, vergehen meist ein bis zwei Wochen.

Eine normale Erkältung beginnt häufig mit Schnupfen, leichtes Fieber kann dazukommen. Die Symptome wechseln sich ab und treten in milderer Form auf als bei der Grippe.

Bei der Grippe dauert es nach der Ansteckung mit dem Virus wenige Stunden bis drei Tage, bis erste Symptome auftreten. Schon während dieser sogenannten Inkubationszeit kann man andere anstecken; also auch, wenn man noch keine Beschwerden spürt.

    Pain: Pain in the breasts and nipples, although indicative of several conditions and issues, can be a telltale sign of breast disease. When the pain accompanies such symptoms as nipple discharge, breast swelling or lumps, contact your physician.

    Peeling of Skin: Peeling or flaking of the nipple skin, in conjunction with other indicative symptoms, is symptomatic of breast cancer and inflammatory breast cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic.

    Lumps: Noticeable lumps in or surrounding breast tissue, such as underneath your arms, indicate both benign and malignant breast diseases. Lumps that come and go with a woman's menstrual cycle are normal hormonal occurrences, however, when lumps don't go away it may be indicative of malignant breast disease.

    Swollen Lymph Nodes: lymph nodes under your arms, in your breasts and sometimes in your neck become swollen and hard when breast disease and other conditions are apparent. Lymph nodes swell to fight off infection, which is a normal function, but when the lymph nodes continue to swell without going down, contacting your doctor is necessary to make a diagnosis.

    Signs and symptoms of eye disease are not only signals that something is amiss with your vision, they could also indicate ailments in other areas of your body. Indeed, many times an ophthalmologist can diagnose signs of such ailments as diabetes by a simple eye examination. Thus paying attention your eyes give can not only save your vision, but could also possibly save your life.

    Bleeding Never ignore bleeding, especially in the eyes. According to the Nethealthbook website, bleeding is always cause for alarm. It could be that a blood vessel is hemmorrhaging. In the case of a person with diabetes, it could be diabetic retinopathy, in which blood leaks from brittle vessels. If an ophthalmologist does not evaluate that condition right away, it could lead to blindness.

    Blind Spots: Blind spots could be an early sign of glaucoma. Sadly, often a patient doesn't even notice them until they invade his main area of vision. The Nethealthbook website notes that such spots could be an early sign of glaucoma. Evaluation by an eye doctor becomes key to avoiding irreversible blindness.

    Blurred/Distorted Vision: Any change in vision is a sign that you should contact your ophtalmologist. This is true especially if you notice blurriness, distortion or clouding in any part of your vision. According to the Docshop website, it could be a common ailment such as astigmatism, which means that objects appear distorted because your cornea has assumed an abnormal shape. This could also be a sign of other common eye problems such as nearsightedness and farsightedness, which a pair of eyeglasses or contacts can fix.

    Peripheral Vision Loss: According to the Docshop website, our peripheral vision is important in that it helps us discern danger from behind. Perhaps the best example of this is when you drive or ride a bicycle. You need to be able to see on either side of you. Thus if you notice a change in your side vision, go to an ophthalmologist and have them test the pressure behind your eyeballs; it could be glaucoma. If the doctor catches this early, he might be able to save your sight. By the time the disease causes pain, or that a significant amount of your vision is already gone, it is most likely too late.

    Because there are many possible conditions that follow under the umbrella of heart disease, the related symptoms are numerous. But here are some key symptoms to be aware of:

    Weil das Grippe-Virus durch veränderte Genabschnitte ständig neue Subtypen entwickelt, kann man mehrmals im Leben an der Grippe erkranken. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Infektionskrankheiten, die man nur einmal bekommt, weil das Immunsystem dann wirksame Schutzmechanismen gegen den Erreger entwickelt hat, wird man also gegen Grippe nicht dauerhaft immun.

    Dies gilt zumindest für das häufigere Influenza-A-Virus. Es gibt jedoch verschiedenen Grippe-Viren-Typen. Typ B verändert sich viel langsamer, so dass man meist nur einmal im Leben an einer Grippe durch Influenza-B-Viren erkrankt, häufig bereits im Kindesalter. Die Krankheit verläuft meist mild.

    Ebenfalls meist mild ist der Verlauf der sogenannten Sommergrippe, die eigentlich gar keine „echte Grippe“ ist. Denn sie wird nicht durch Influenza-Viren ausgelöst, sondern durch Enteroviren. Wie der Name schon sagt, tritt sie meist im Sommer auf und verläuft ähnlich wie eine Erkältungskrankheit.

    Wie man eine Sommergrippe von einer Grippe unterscheidet und Informationen zur Behandlung der Sommergrippe lesen sie im Beitrag Sommergrippe

    Wer den Verdacht hat, sich mit dem Grippe-Virus infiziert zu haben, sollte zu einem Arzt gehen. Insbesondere Personen mit einem erhöhten Risiko wie ältere Menschen oder chronisch Kranke sollten bereits bei den ersten Anzeichen einer Grippe ihren Hausarzt aufsuchen.

    In vielen Fällen kann der Arzt anhand der Krankengeschichte und einer körperlichen Untersuchung bereits feststellen, ob ein Patient an einer Influenza oder nur an einem grippalen Infekt (Erkältung) erkrankt ist. Wenn es dem Betroffenen aber sehr schlecht geht oder die Gefahr besteht, dass die Erkrankung einen schweren Verlauf nimmt, ist ein Virus-Nachweis sinnvoll. Wenn dieser positiv ausfällt, kann sofort mit einer gegen Viren wirkenden Behandlung begonnen werden.

    Einen wichtigen Hinweis, ob es sich tatsächlich um Grippe-Viren handelt, gibt der Influenza-Schnelltest. Für diesen Test wird aus dem Nasen- oder Rachenraum Speichel mit einem Wattestäbchen abgestrichen und auf einen Teststreifen gebracht. Färbt sich der Test, ist eine Influenza-Infektion sehr wahrscheinlich.

    Manchmal muss das Material aber weiter in ein Labor geschickt werden, wo man durch eine Genanalyse das Virus hundertprozentig identifizieren kann.

    Wurden bei einem Patienten Grippe-Viren nachgewiesen, muss der Arzt dies dem Gesundheitsamt melden. So können Vorsichtsmaßnahmen getroffen werden, die eine größere Ausbreitung der Krankheit verhindern sollen. Im Krankenhaus etwa werden Erkrankte in einem Einzelzimmer isoliert. Besucher und medizinisches Personal müssen Schutzkleidung tragen, wenn sie das Krankenzimmer betreten. Auch regelmäßiges Händewaschen dämmt die Weitergabe der Viren an andere Personen ein.

    Die Grippe wird durch Viren hervorgerufen, die man wissenschaftlich als Influenza-Viren bezeichnet. Insgesamt gibt es drei unterschiedliche Grippeviren-Gattungen: A, B und C. Aber nur Influenza A-Viren können den Menschen wirklich gefährlich werden. Anders als die B-Viren, die meist nur mildere Krankheitsverläufe provozieren und die C-Viren, die nur sehr sporadisch auftreten, sind sie für die schweren Grippeepidemien verantwortlich. Sie sind sehr wandlungsfähig und werden in eine ganze Menge Untergruppen eingeteilt.

    Diese Subgruppen, die zum Beispiel H1N1 oder H3N2 heißen, gliedern sich nach den Proteinen auf der Oberfläche der Influenza-A-Viren, mit deren Hilfe diese in die Wirtszellen eindringen und sich anschließend aus dieser wieder befreien können. H steht dabei für Hämagglutinin, N für Neuraminidase.

    Tritt die Grippe zeitlich und örtlich gehäuft auf, spricht man von einer Epidemie. Überschreitet die Erkrankungswelle Länder oder sogar Kontinente nennt man das Pandemie. Grippewellen treten beinahe jedes Jahr in der Winterszeit auf. Alle zehn bis 40 Jahre kommt es zu einer Grippe-Pandemie, die aber unterschiedlich schwer verlaufen kann. An der „Schweinegrippe“ starben im Jahr 2009 weltweit 18.000 Menschen.

    You should be aware of the early signs and symptoms of poisoning. It is important to remove the person from the source of exposure quickly. Remove contaminated clothing and wash off any chemical which has soaked through. You may save a life.

    • Be able to determine whether or not a person has been poisoned by a pesticide.
    • Learn to recognize kinds of poisoning and their symptoms.
    • Become familiar with chemical families and their toxicity.

    Of course, just because you experience some of these symptoms does not guarantee that you do have an intestinal parasite. You may just have a dreadful diet, and now you are paying for it.

    I've found, though, that if you experience these symptoms chronically, you need a good colon cleaning whether it is harboring parasites or not!

    We really aren't meant to live in discomfort like that. And honestly, if you let these things go, they don't just go away. You usually end up with far greater digestive problems and even some painful and serious conditions.

    As a result of chronic parasitic infections, people have suffered with.

    • irritable bowel syndrome
    • ulcerative colitis
    • allergy problems
    • inflammation
    • joint pain
    • chronic fatigue
    • immune disorders, possibly even AIDS


    After dealing with the parasites and getting them out of their system, their symptoms were gone, too. Remember the little "mimics?" Your situation may not be as serious as you fear.

    I freely admit that I am not a doctor. However, I'm the type who would rather take the simple and natural steps first to try to fix a problem. When all else fails, then I consider drastic measures!:-)

    Why? Take several weeks and apply a few good principles of colon cleansing and healthy eating to your life. You may surprise yourself by the results. And the wonderful thing about a natural cleanse is that it is relatively inexpensive and you won't have to worry about damaging chemical side effects.
