Do you think my husband is poisoning me? I drink a lot of water and healthy drinks and my diet is actually good. I eat red meat once a month, eat vegetables and fruits, fish, and chicken. This is been going on since 2004. If I was being poisoned, it could be off and on. Only when I have life insurance and it's not even a lot of money. Am I dealing with a crazy man?
2) If you have feasible proof, divorce your husband. What if you can ot prevent the continued poisoning? Death is the result. Run and do not turn back.
1) I have been poisoned two times that I know of by my husband. The first time had to be liquid because I had left a tape recorder on and heard him say he put it in my watermelon. It had to be liquid.
Is there some way they do this or can it be purchased in liquid form? The last time he opened a soft drink for me before I got in the car. Can it dissolve that quickly? What am I dealing with here and how do I avoid this?
Does a Britta water filter keep my drinking water safe from it?
Influenza B beschreibt einen von drei für den Menschen relevanten Influenza-Virustyp (A, B und C), welcher ausschließlich den Menschen befällt und zusammen mit dem Influenza-A-Virus für die jährlich wiederkehrendenGrippewellen während der Wintermonate verantwortlich ist. Im Gegensatz zum Influenza-A-Virus löst die B-Variante jedoch keine Pandemien (wie 1918 die Spanische Grippe) und seltener Epidemien aus, gilt aber ebenfalls als hoch ansteckend.
Symptome & Verlauf
Das Influenzavirus gehört zur Gruppe der Orthomyxoviren und wird anhand bestimmter Oberflächenproteine in Typen (A, B und C) sowie deren Subtypen unterteilt. Diese oberflächlichen Strukturen übernehmen, sind die Viren erst einmal im Wirt angelangt, unterschiedliche Aufgaben. Das Hämagglutinin (Antigen H) ist für die Verbindung des Virus mit der Wirtszelle zuständig, die Neuraminidase(Antigen N) hilft dem Virus, in die Zelle einzudringen. Die genannten Antigene sind in verschiedenen Ausführungen vorhanden und können in unterschiedlichen Kombinationen auftreten, was dann den jeweiligen Subtypus bestimmt. Bei Influenza B gibt es die seit Jahren existierenden Linien: Yagamata-Linie und Victoria-Linie.
Die Symptome bei einer Erkrankung an Influenz-B-Viren entspricht der typischen Grippesymptomatik und umfasst im Wesentlichen:
- rasch ansteigendes Fieber bei plötzlichem Krankheitsbeginn
- starke Hals-, Kopf- und Gliederschmerzen
- trockener Reizhusten
- Übelkeit, Erbrechen und Durchfall
Die Symptome treten oft bereits nach 1-2 Tagen Inkubationszeit auf, bestehen in der Regel für 3-5 Tage und klingen dann ab. Durch Übertragung perTröpfcheninfektion (größere Partikel per Husten und Niesen, kleinere bereits durch Sprechen und Atmen) und Sekretübertragung beim Händeschütteln ist die Ansteckungsgefahr bei einer Grippe sehr hoch. Um eine allzu rasche Ausbreitung zu verhindern wird empfohlen, sich zu Hause auszukurieren.
Die Behandlung der Influenza B ist identisch zu der anderer Influenza-Erkrankungen: Neben den gängigen Hausmitteln kann, nur im Fall von schweren Verläufen – bei Risikogruppen oft auch prophylaktisch – eine antivirale Therapiemit Neuraminidasehemmern erfolgen. Diese können die Vermehrung der Viren innerhalb der menschlichen Zelle bzw. deren Freisetzung aus der Zelle verhindern. So wird eine weitere Akkumulation verhindert. Vorbeugend besteht die Möglichkeit einer Grippeschutzimpfung. Dabei werden sogenannte Totimpfstoffeverwendet, also nicht mehr vermehrungsfähige, inaktivierte Virusbestandteile. Das Immunsystem des Körpers reagiert auf das Eindringen dieser Partikel – was mögliche Allgemeinreaktionen wie Fieber, Kopf- und Muskelschmerzen erklärt – und beginnt mit der Produktion von Antikörpern, welche bei nachfolgendem „echten“ Virusbefall zu schützen vermögen.
Avoid taking medication that includes identical ingredients at the same time. For instance, do not take Tylenol ® and Tylenol ® Sinus together because both these medicines contain acetaminophen.
In certain cases, your doctor may prescribe antiviral medicine to reduce the duration and severity of your symptoms. This type of medication is most effective when taken at the onset of an infection.
If your child is over 3 months old and has a fever, you may give him or her acetaminophen such as Tylenol ®, following instructions given and according to your child’s weight.
Avoid giving children and adolescents acetylsalicylic acid such as aspirin. Such medication can lead to a serious disease of the brain and liver known as ‘Reye's Syndrome’ in children and adolescents with the flu.
The flu can lead to certain complications, including:
- Dehydration due to sweating caused by fever
For people considered more vulnerable to sickness, certain complications can lead to hospitalisation or even death.
The following people are most at risk of complications:
- Children younger than 5 years old
- People with chronic diseases
- Pregnant women
- Women who gave birth in the last 4 weeks
- People aged 65 years and over
If you or your child are among people most at risk of complications and have symptoms of the flu, call Info-Santé 811. A nurse will evaluate your health and make recommendations based on your condition.
The flu virus lives best in fresh and dry areas. It can live up to 2 days on contaminated objects or up to 5 minutes on skin.
The flu virus is very contagious. It is spread quickly from person to person in the following ways:
- By droplets sprayed through the mouth or nose by an infected person when they cough or sneeze
- By direct contact with secretions from the nose or throat from a person with the flu, when kissing for instance
- When you bring your hand to your nose, mouth or eyes after shaking the hand of someone infected or touching contaminated objects
The healthcare workers are required to indicate on their identification badge whether they have had a flu vaccination or must wear a mask, she says. For instance, a blue dot indicates the worker has had a flu shot, while a red dot indicates they have not had it.
Luebbert admits it is like wearing a scarlet letter for those who don’t get a flu shot.
The masks themselves are “awful,” she says. “The employees hate it. It’s uncomfortable and the patients can’t see your face. And the patients hate it because they can’t see the worker’s expression.”
It must be the responsibility of the employee’s manager to monitor workers to ensure they are wearing their mask, Luebbert says. Infection preventionists cannot be everywhere in a hospital to monitor all workers.
Communicate with patients
Hospitals should be prepared for questions from patients and family members who may wonder why a worker is wearing a mask when providing care, says Chinnes.
“I think hospitals should come up with some kind of script so a healthcare worker can say, ‘This is why I’m wearing a mask,’ ” she says. Hospitals don’t want patients to think they are allowing a worker who is sick to take care of them.
Luebbert agrees that hospitals need to communicate to patients and family members why workers are wearing a mask. One hospital put up a poster in its lobby advising people that both visitors and employees who had not been vaccinated against the flu must wear a mask during flu season, she says.

I will probably find another profession after more than 25 years of nursing. I will not get the flu shot as I have had bad reactions in the past. I feel humiliated wearing a mask having to explain why to patients and visitors. It’s also hot and uncomfortable. The backs of my ears are sore from the ear loops. I came home from work today and broke into tears. What are we coming to?? Really look at the research on vaccines and effectiveness never mind the side effects.
The hospital where I work made flu vaccine mandatory three years ago. I was/am medically exempt. The first two years a drs excuse was sufficient, however this past year (flu season) they required an allergist determine vaccine reaction. Even if there was a positive skin test reaction protocol requires for the HCW to receive the vaccine, slowly, over a 6 to 8 hour period while under the care of the allergist. Now, mind you, I am a clerical employee and have limited contact with pts.
I work mainly at a desk.
Having had a hx of anaphylaxis with the flu vaccine, I was required to visit the allergist. (However I am NOT allergic to eggs) After administering the skin test the site of testing appeared to be negative. However ten minutes into testing I began having an anaphylactic reaction. My mouth inside and out begin to itch, as did the roof of my mouth and my throat, my lips began to swell and I became covered with hives and a rash. Plus my skin was beet red and warm all over.
I was administered meds to combat the reaction and observed for awhile before being released. The Dr said I was NOT to be vaccinated against flu this year nor in the future EVER!!
This all happened at the beginning of the flu season, now, in mid January, admin is going to require me to wear a mask. Wear it or else! All day long, 9+ hours.
But the worst was my racing mind. I could not shut it off. I didn't sleep well and during the day it was so bad that it was hard to concentrate and that made me even more tired. The progesterone was amazing. It took a while to fully work. (Maybe six to seven months in all) But it did work. The libido never did get very high but was there.
I am noticing now, though, that some of the symptoms are returning, so I will work on adjusting my amount of progesterone used each night until I get it right again. I am 42 and know that I have been going through perimenopause (blood test showed it) for the last two years so I'm sure I just need an increase.
Hope this helps anyone who is going through the hell that this causes. It's hard to feel like a decent wife and mom when you have to deal with this.
18) I never thought anything of my symptoms of anxiety, low libido, poor memory ever being related until my doctor sent me for tests because I wasn't getting pregnant. Now that I have an idea of what's going on I feel a lot better about it. Hope there is a solution to this though.
17) I definitely have pmdd. I have not had a period in over three months. I am 43 years old and i feel like i have no life. I can't sleep and when i finally fall asleep i have a difficult time waking up.
I have bloating, severe indigestion, constipation, and have not had sex in too long. I have had abdominal pain a while back, but still have pain at certain times of the month. my doctor ordered blood work for hormone levels, and thyroid. I have extremely low, practically nonexistent progesterone levels, very low testerone if any. Not to mention estrogen is low. It's not even on the chart. It falls in between a black hole and not quite menopause.
I have tried hrt, however, i developed a cyst in my breast over a seven week treatment due to hrt, so i stopped taking any hormone replacement medication.
i have taken all of the other recommended herbal meds, however still no improvement. i have done tons of research and i am a registered nurse but i can't find any solutions, not even one. please help.
15) I have had some hormone issues and I have been seeing a naturopath doctor for help and the greatest treatment for me has been the wild yam cream. It has natural progesterone and it has helped me get pregnant if you are ttc. I would recommend seeing someone to put in balance the whole body, not just the symptoms. you won't regret it.
14) I have been in perimenopause for a couple of years.I am currently on hormones,and antidepressants and still not doing much better. Depression, fatigue, memory, concentration loss insomnia and severe bloating, heartburn and digestive problems have taken over my life. I am considering trying Amberen, a natural hormone I read about on the internet.
I have suffered from chronic depression and anxiety for many years and going through perimenopause doesn't help any. I have had all kinds of tests done and tried all kinds of meds, even herbal stuff and nothing seems to help.
Please post if you have any suggestions for me! Thanks.
13) wow. i haven't felt myself for a while now. i have two children and a year ago i stopped taking my pill. i didn't get pregnant and my partner and i went to a fertility specialist who sent us away to get tested.
i thought it was my partner with the problem but the results came back saying my progesterone levels were lower than a male's levels.
Moderate exercise is also beneficial, if your strength allows. Sleep and freedom from stress is vital.
Sunshine and fresh air will also aid in detoxification.
A headache is the body’s chief warning signal of body toxicity. The toxic load in the body has increased so fast that poisons are circulating in the bloodstream and cause irritation to the brain and nerves.
Aspirin should never be taken for a headache. For some relief, lay down and rest with a cool, damp cloth across the eyes and forehead. Fasting may also help. Have someone massage the neck and temple. Avoid all stress at this time.
When food is not being digested properly or is passing right through your body, then it is time to stop all food intake. This is your body’s way of telling you it doesn’t require any nourishment at this time, but instead is busy cleaning.
Careful food combinations and avoiding heavy foods are advised.
Diarrhea should not be halted by medicines. Rest and abstinence from food are your best resorts.
A new diet may occasion temporary constipation. Brisk walking of at least one mile a day will help end this problem.
Eating foods naturally high in water and fiber will eventually remedy this condition. If little food is eaten, drink distilled water whenever thirsty.
On a diet of fruits and vegetables, constipation disappears, never to return.
Weight loss is entirely normal when the diet is improved. Some individuals become alarmed when their weight falls rapidly. In most cases, this is not a cause for alarm.
From five to fifteen pounds of water weight alone may be lost when salt is completely eliminated from the diet. In some individuals, five to twenty pounds of old fecal matter may be eliminated from the colon. All of this is useless weight, and you should say, “Good riddance!”
The body will also try to eliminate all diseased tissue in an effort to rebuild a healthy body. It will try to strip itself down to the bare foundations and then begin to add on only healthy tissue.
Weight loss may occur for six months to a year. Exercises for muscle growth, such as weight lifting and swimming, will help rebuild the body with lean, muscular tissue. Be sure that your diet includes sufficient amounts of sweet fruits that are high in calories to balance out the low-calorie salads.
Usually, you can expect to weigh about twenty pounds less after you renormalize your body from the typical high-meat and fat diet of most Americans.
Almost all the symptoms experienced during a dietary change are due to the body’s efforts to detoxify itself as rapidly as possible!
You can help in this process by fasting and getting plenty of rest. Be sure you get all the sleep you want and try to avoid stressful situations. During detoxification, you need as much peace and privacy as possible.
