I am 48 years old now. I cannot remember when I last had a solid night of sleep, my body is in constant pain from head to toe and I have IBS. I have gained/lost up to 30-50 pounds over the years with dieting, but seem to always gain the weight back. I have had horrible brain fog and on some days I feel like a zombie just walking or driving the earth! It's been hell!

I had a hysterectomy five years ago because I had a cyst as big as a grapefruit on my ovary. I still have one ovary left. Last August, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I am currently going through radiation treatments for that. I did find my lump early on and it had not spread to the lymph nodes but I still had surgery to remove the tumor and now radiation. Chemo was not necessary since I caught it early on.

I recently found a female doctor who is more into the natural approach of treating the female body. She took nine tubes of blood from me and also had me collect my urine and bowel for 24 hours to send off for testing. I found out my estrogen is low and my testosterone did not even register, it was so low. I also found out that I am vitamin D deficient, calcium deficient, magnesium deficient, and that I have inherited a mutation gene from my parents for MTHFR, which is a lack of folate that can cause coronary heart disease/heart attack and stroke! She put me on a vitamin called Methyl Balance that she said I should stay on for life and said my sons should have blood work done to see if they have inherited the gene also.

I also found out that my T4 for thyroid is not producing T3, and you need both to balance your thyroid levels. I will work to balance my hormones later, after I finish my breast cancer treatment. I truly believe is what caused me to get breast cancer in the first place: I am estrogen positive, and I believe it caused the cyst that led me to hysterectomy. I also believe this is why I had difficulty getting pregnant with my second child and probably the cause many years ago of irregular and painful periods.

I have been to nine different doctors over the last 15 years and no other doctor has been able, nor has taken the time, to help me. I have about 15 different bottles of prescription drugs that were prescribed to me but I have taken hardly any of them, or I would try them and find the side effects were worse than the illness. Unfortunately, my insurance does not cover the holistic MD I found, I have worked for the same employer for 28 years paying for medical insurance, and when I finally found a doctor who could help me, they will not pay for her, or for all the vitamins she has prescribed for me. This is frustrating and does not make sense!

33) I had many of the symptoms everyone here has mentioned and can't finish my degree due to all of this. My symptoms began five years ago and I'm now 49.

At the insistence of my chiropractor, I sought help from a functional medicine DO. Has been a tremendous help. My progesterone is 17, and I have low thyroid and adrenals, plus I'm not absorbing vitamins and nutrients.

I began with 100mg of bio-identical progesterone from compounding pharmacy and over the past two years, I'm now up to 300 mg. Be aware though, that Prometrium brand is made with peanut oil so if you have an issue with that tell the doctor and get it from a compounding pharmacy. They can make it without peanut oil.

For mental fog/blurry vision, my doctor prescribed building up (can cause diarrhea if too fast) to 4,000 mgs vitamin C buffered powder in water first thing in the morning and it has worked wonders. Also the Calm brand magnesium has helped with sleep and anxiety. I started Armour thyroid 2 weeks ago and am feeling better already. My depression has lifted, thank God, as I was considering asking for an anti-depressant.

Also, my doctor recommended a gluten free diet which has made a huge difference as well with my stubborn weight gain since all this started. I also highly recommend the book “Core Balance” by Marcelle Pick. It explains all about hormones and what to do. She has a great website too! Hang in there ladies. You are not alone!

31) I don't know how active this site is, but I just wanted to share my thoughts. I stopped taking birth control and a lot of changes happened. For years I had severe anxiety. My periods vanished completely then came back irregular with heavy bleeding and a lot of clotting. I did not sleep well and my mind was always busy, busy. I was fatigued and had no sex drive. I was not me, not alive. I felt like I was just coasting from day to day struggling to get through.

Then I saw a holistic doctor as all traditional doctors wanted to do was put me back on the pill. This doctor was wonderful. She listened to everything I said and did an ultrasound and hormone test. My progesterone is low at 18L. The normal range, in case anyone in wondering for premenopausal women, is between 75 - 250L. My estradiol was also low at 1.2L. Normal should be 1.3 - 3.3 for a premenopausal women.

My doctor gave me bio-identical (natural) progesterone made at a compounding pharmacy just for me. I take 150mg at night which I am to reduce to 50mg at the onset of my period. It has only been two weeks, but already I feel a difference. My anxiety is so much better and I sleep better. My headaches are less frequent.

You can read them at The guidelines from Aton channelled through Leonette. He also explains what to do when you feel the ascension symptoms coming on.

Initially you may feel nothing. Give it time.

Do you see or sense the changes in the atmosphere and environment around you? Does your body respond to the atmospheric pressure changes around you?

That headache, sinus pressure, neck and upper shoulder pain, aching joints especially ankles and knees (grounding energy) seemed to have increased. yes!

You experience them now, and then they subside and you experience relief only to return again, perhaps in a different way or intensity?

Are you experiencing bouts of nausea and/or constipation and/or bouts of eating binges?

Are you experiencing difficulty in being around people and places that never bothered you before?

Are you developing a preference for your own space and at most times, solitude?

Close your eyes if you can or relax your eyes if you are in a position to do so.

Common Ascension Symptoms

In most cases, a medical doctor cannot explain the pain you are experiencing after doing many tests.

You are moving rapidly from one energy vibration to another which is causing this phenomenon. It will pass.

This will pass as your body becomes acclimatized to the changes.

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.

Ascension changes are occuring on all levels of your being.

During the ascension process changes are occuring on all levels of your being. Ascension is a completely natural universal evolutionary process. As one shifts in vibrational frequency and as their awareness expands, symptoms are experienced on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Your system is rebooting, being 'tuned up' or upgraded. Old patterns begin to fall away as one starts to embody much more light.

As one moves through the Ascension process there may be periods where the energy and symptoms become much more intense for several days or weeks at a time; then suddenly these symptoms may abruptly cease altogether for awhile, or symptoms may suddenly change or shift in intensity or frequency. The ascension experience is different for everyone and symptoms can vary according to one's individual degree of awareness, personal vibration, spiritual practice and even individual purpose on the planet.

Remember that not all of these symptoms may be due to the ascension process. Please follow your own inner guidance and consult a health care professional as needed. If you are experiencing a majority of these symptoms it is a good indication that you are experiencing the ascension process more fully or at an accelerated rate. For treating ascension symptoms, more holistic healing methods and natural remedies are always encouraged alongside any other necessary treatment and for overall long term health and healing benefits.

Are You a Spiritual Seeker Who’s Frustrated That You’re Feeling Blocked and Stuck? Out With the Old, In With the New

Ascension is an entirely natural evolutionary process at work in the universe.

The Trials of Purification - Meeting the Challenge of Spiritual Growth

Even where symptoms express themselves physically as part of the purification process, the underlying cause is still a need for the healing of one's consciousness, and this need can also increase in intensity, manifesting physical symptoms that are stronger than they were before.

Surviving the Physical Aches and Pains of Ascension

"You deserve so much more than what these small particles of fear want for you. You deserve to become one again, one with your spirit, one with All of creation, so do not be stopped in your tracks by these annyoing little speed bumps trying to set you off course. For the future is ever so much brighter than what these voices try to tell you. So keep breathing, and keep going, and know that you are not falling short in any way, even if you feel despair seeping in from all directions. " Surviving the Physical Aches and Pains of Ascension

Ricarda Schwarz studierte Medizin in Würzburg, wo sie auch ihre Promotion abschloss. Nach sehr vielseitigen Aufgaben in der medizinischen praktischen Ausbildung (PJ) in Flensburg, Hamburg und Neuseeland ist sie nun in der Neuroradiologie und Radiologie der Uniklinik Tübingen tätig.

Die Grippe (Influenza) ist eine schwere Atemwegserkrankung, die durch Viren hervorgerufen wird. Grippe ist sehr ansteckend. Besonders in den Wintermonaten erkranken viele Menschen. Oft wird aber eine einfache Erkältung als Grippe verkannt, obwohl die Unterschiede sehr groß sind. Lesen Sie hier, welche Symptome für eine Grippe typisch sind und wie Sie sich schützen können!

  • Symptome: plötzlich einsetzendes Fieber mit Schüttelfrost, Knochenschmerzen, Reizhusten, Halsschmerzen, Kopfschmerzen, manchmal Magen-Darm-Beschwerden
  • Ansteckung: über feinste Tröpfchen in der Atemluft, Berührung von kontaminierten Gegenständen und Flächen
  • Erreger: Influenza-A- und B-Viren, die sich schnell verändern können (daher kein bleibender Immunschutz)
  • Vorbeugung: Impfung (für Risikogruppen), Kontakt mit Infizierten meiden, regelmäßiges Händewaschen
  • Behandlung: nur symptomatisch mit Schmerz- und Fiebermedikamenten (Ibuprofen, Paracetamol), Bettruhe, viel trinken
  • Komplikationen:Lungenentzündung, Nasennebenhöhlenentzündung, Mittelohrentzündung, Herzmuskelentzündung, Hirnhautentzündung (Meningitis)

Wer mit Husten, Schnupfen und Fieber im Bett liegt, fragt sich häufig, ob ihn eine Grippe oder eine Erkältung (grippaler Infekt) plagt. Das wichtigste Unterscheidungskriterium: Während es einem bei einer Erkältung langsam schlechter geht, überfällt einen die Grippe schlagartig.

Grippe oder Erkältung? Die wichtigsten Unterschiede


"Erkältung" (grippaler Infekt)

plötzliches Fieber von mindestens 38,5°C

langsam ansteigendes oder gar kein Fieber

Fieber meist länger als drei Tage anhaltend

Fieber häufig nur kurzzeitig

leichtes bis mittelschweres Krankheitsgefühl

häufig Übelkeit, Erbrechen, Durchfall

The fever, if it occurs at all, is often accompanied by other usually mild symptoms, such as fatigue, swollen lymph glands, and a sore throat.

"At this point the virus is moving into the blood stream and starting to replicate in large numbers," says Carlos Malvestutto, MD, instructor of infectious diseases and immunology in the department of medicine at NYU School of Medicine in New York City. "As that happens, there is an inflammatory reaction by the immune system."

The inflammatory response generated by your besieged immune system also can cause you to feel tired and lethargic. Fatigue can be both an early and later sign of HIV.

Ron, 54, a public relations executive in the Midwest, started to worry about his health when he suddenly got winded just walking. "Everything I did, I got out of breath," he says. "Before that I had been walking three miles a day."

Ron had tested HIV positive 25 years before feeling so tired; fatigue during acute, or newly contracted, HIV might not be so obvious.

ARS is often mistaken for the flu, mononucleosis, or another viral infection, even syphilis or hepatitis.

That's not surprising: Many of the symptoms are the same, including pain in the joints and muscles and swollen lymph glands.

Lymph nodes are part of your body's immune system and tend to get inflamed when there's an infection. Many of them are located in your armpit, groin, and neck.

Photo: Getty Images

As with other symptoms, sore throat and headache can often be recognized as ARS only in context, Dr. Horberg says.

If you've engaged recently in high-risk behavior, an HIV test is a good idea. Get tested for your own sake and for others: HIV is most infectious in the earliest stage.

Keep in mind that the body hasn't produced antibodies to HIV yet so an antibody test may not pick it up. (It can take a few weeks to a few monthsfor HIV antibodies to show in a blood test). Investigate other test options such as one that detects viral RNA, typically within nine days of infection.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Symptoms of AIDS are caused by the deterioration of the immune system and the decline of CD4+ T cells, which are the immune system's key infection fighters. As soon as HIV enters the body, it begins to destroy these cells. Some common symptoms include:

  • Diarrhea that lasts for more than a week
  • Dry cough
  • Memory loss, depression and neurological disorders
  • Pneumonia
  • Profound, unexplained fatigue
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Recurring fever or profuse night sweats
  • Red, brown, pink or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose or eyelids
  • Swollen lymph glands in the armpits, groin or neck
  • White spots or unusual blemishes on the tongue, in the mouth, or in the throat

Because people with AIDS have weakened immune systems, they're more prone to infections, called opportunistic infections. Opportunistic infections are caused by organisms that typically don't cause disease in healthy people but affect people with damaged immune systems. These organisms attack when there's an opportunity to infect.

Deterioration of the immune system is caused by the decline in CD4+ T cells, which are key infection fighters. As soon as HIV enters the body, it begins to destroy these cells.

Symptoms of opportunistic infections common with AIDS include:

  • Coma
  • Coughing and shortness of breath
  • Difficult or painful swallowing
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Fever
  • Mental symptoms such as confusion and forgetfulness
  • Nausea, abdominal cramps and vomiting
  • Seizures and lack of coordination
  • Severe, persistent diarrhea
  • Severe headaches
  • Vision loss
  • Weight loss

Many opportunistic infections associated with AIDS cause serious illness. Some may be prevented. Below is a list of infections and how they affect the body.

Cryptoccoccal Menigitis — This is a yeast-like fungus infection that usually involves the brain and lungs, although it can affect almost any organ. The fungus that causes this condition is found in soil throughout the world. It is most common in soil contaminated by bird droppings. This disease most often occurs when a person's CD4+ T cell count falls below 100 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

HIV-related Encephalopathy — Encephalopathy is a term for diseases that alter brain function or structure, leading to problems with cognitive function, or mental processes, and memory. In people with HIV and AIDS, encephalopathy is usually caused by an infectious agent, such as a bacteria, virus or prion.

Encephalopathy most often occurs when a person's CD4+T cell count falls below 50 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Toxoplasma-seropositive patients who have a CD4+T cell count of less than 100 cells per cubic millimeter of blood should be treated with prophylaxis to prevent developing encephalopathy.

    I haven’t heard that it causes a low WBC count but mine has been low for years. It will be interesting to see if it’s changed the next time I go to the doctor. I haven’t had anything diet in about 7 weeks.

    Congratulations. You’ve given yourself a wonderful gift. May you keep feeling better and better.

    I gave up all aspartame products back in September and lasted almost 4 months then my parents visited end of December and I was back on it!
    All was going ok til about a month ago and now I am back to an odd feeling in my ears, my allergies are worsened, my stomach is ultra sensitive, my legs ache and have weird bruises, my fingers ache, I get tingling and numbness in my hands and feet, depression and anxiety.
    This time I need to quit for good!!

    Sarah I have had swelling in the legs, headaches, ringing in the ears,aching joints, bad skin, tingling and numbness in my hands and feet, depression, anxiety at times..I hope you can stay off it, I have been off it for 3 weeks and I will never go back, it is far to frightening-I want to live a long life, I wish you the same GIVE IT UP GIRL and good luck

    4 days off the evil stuff, have not had many withdrawal symptoms just nausea, lack of appetite, trouble sleeping, lethargy and mood swings but my raynauds is gone, my joints are feeling better, the tingling in my leg has gone and a lot of the other aches and pains are disappearing!

    Hi Gwenda, your post has inspired me. I am totally addicted to diet coke and I want so badly to be able to quit and trying to prepare myself to try again. I know I am unhealthy and I know I am probably slowly killing myself. I am wondering if you were able to continue being free from the addiction and how your symptoms are now. Did the ringing in the ears stop? Thanks so much!

    I just quit aspartame because I’ve been trying to get pregnant for the last year and I’ve succeeded a few times. But, unfortunately it never lasts longer than 6 weeks. I started taking progesterone to help. But, then I remembered someone mentioning aspartame to me about five years ago and I blew off the warning. So, I looked it up and sure enough, I found it causes miscarriage and birth defects. I’m now convinced that the reason such a HUGE number of children are born with autism these days and an even larger number are diagnosed with ADHD and it’s because of aspartame, along with the rest off the artificial sweeteners. I’m including those “made from real sugar” like Splenda. I was drinking diet caffeine free Dr Pepper. So, I’m thinking maybe the withdrawal everyone’s complaining about are caffeine withdrawals. I have been drinking purely soda as my only fluid since high school at the latest. I can’t remember when I started on sodas and I can’t remember ever drinking anything but. So, since at least 1987, when I was 12. I quit caffeine in 12 days by drinking caffeine free Dr Pepper and when I’d start getting a headache, I would drink one of the caffeinated cans that are like 8 ounces, tiny. But, I haven’t had any soda in five days. No withdrawal. I miss the sharp carbonation on my throat, but my future baby is more than worth it.

    What I’m trying to find out is how long before the aspartame is out of my system? If you know that, please email me.

    Thanks for all this info. I want to see the long list of the complications of aspartame too. I’m 38 and have had tendonitis for years, along with joint pain, hair loss, major memory problems, etc.

    I just quit Diet Coke, after a friend telling me about aspartame.
    I was telling him how bad my finger joints had gotten in the past few weeks. I had gotten to where I had to quit my business because I could not use my fingers. Swollen joints, high pain from joint movement, and excruciating pain when I would even just move my fingers. Many things just got impossible to do.

    Eczema is the name for a group of conditions that cause the skin to become red, itchy and inflamed. There are several types of eczema: atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, nummular eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and stasis dermatitis.

    Eczema is very common. And in many cases, it’s also manageable. In fact, over 30 million Americans have some form of eczema.

    Eczema flares often show up on the backs of the knees

    Living with eczema can be an ongoing challenge. The word “eczema” is derived from a Greek word meaning “to boil over,” which is a good description for the red, inflamed, itchy patches that occur during flare-ups. Eczema can range from mild, moderate, to severe.

    It’s most common for babies and children to develop eczema on their face (especially the cheeks and chin), but it can appear anywhere on the body and symptoms may be different from one child to the next. More often than not, eczema goes away as a child grows older, though some children will continue to experience eczema into adulthood.

    Adults can develop eczema, too, even if they never had it as a child.

    Eczema is not contagious. You can’t “catch it” from someone else. While the exact cause of eczema is unknown, researchers do know that people who develop eczema do so because of a combination of genes and environmental triggers. When an irritant or an allergen “switches on” the immune system, skin cells don’t behave as they should causing an eczema flare-up.

    How can I differentiate between H1N1 Swine Flu and seasonal flu?
    You cannot tell the difference without a medical verdict on it. Since symptoms for both the diseases are same like cough, headache, sneezing, fever, runny nose etc, only your doctor will be able to say if you have H1N1 virus. In case, your doctor suspects symptoms, they will have your blood sample, nasopharyngeal (nose to mouth) and throat swab to laboratories.

    Home remedies for swine flu:
    There are no home remedies, especially when you have to figure out if it is H1N1 or season flu. The H1N1 requires anti-viral drugs because treating it is an emergency issue. However you can prevent the spread of swine flu and strengthen your immune system by doing the following:
    1. Wash your hands properly before having a meal, not just with soap and water.
    2. Wear face mask before going outside. If someone is coughing or sneezing near you, cover your nose and mouth with palms or a hanky. Swine flu gets into the body through the mouth and nose.
    3. Drink lemon balm tea because it has anti-viral properties.
    4. Chew fresh garlic cloves because they have antiviral properties as well.
    5. Steam inhalation with chamomile or eucalyptus thrice a day can relieve lung congestion and prevent swine flu symptoms.

    Schistosomiasis is a disease caused by parasites. Schistosoma is the genus of the several species of flatworms that are responsible for causing this disease. Schistosomiasis is popularly known as snail fever. Theodor Bilharz was the first to describe the cause of urinary schistosomiasis in 1851, and this disease is also called Bilharzia or Bilharziosis in many countries after him.

    This disease mostly affects the tropical countries like Africa, the Caribbean islands, and eastern part of South America, East Asia, and the Middle East. Estimation shows that about 207 million people are suffering from this disease, and about another 120 million are displaying the symptoms. Different types of Schistosomiasis are found in different areas as follows:

    Schistosoma mansoni—parts of South America and the Caribbean, Africa, and the Middle East

    Schistosoma haematobium— Africa and the Middle East

    Schistosoma japonicum— Far East. S. Mekongi and S. intercalatum are found focally in Southeast Asia and central West Africa, respectively

    Schistosomiasis is one of the most commonly picked up disease in developing countries which is acquired by swimming in such water bodies that are infested with snails, usually the biomphlaria, bulinus, or the oncomelania types, or which are the carriers of the schistosoma pathogens.

    Schistosoma mansoni (ICD-10 B65.1)— intestinal schistosomiasis

    Schistosoma intercalatum (B65.8)—intestinal schistosomiasis

    The study, in the journal Science Translational Medicine, showed that the older people are, the fewer antibodies they have and they have fewer different types.

    That may help explain why people have a weaker immune response to vaccines as they get older, and why they get sicker once they are infected.

    Flu kills anywhere between 4,000 and 49,000 people a year, CDC says. Every year is different. But this year is shaping up to be at the high end of that scale.

    “I do think in years where you have a virus that impacts the older adults particularly hard, the number of total deaths tends to be higher. I would expect that this year we’d be on the high range of deaths,” said Duchin.

    “It’s hard to tell because the flu season is not over, but we are having a moderately severe season that is an H3N2 predominant season,” Finelli said.

    H3N2 is one of the different strains of flu virus circulating, and for some reason when there is lots of H3N2, more people get seriously ill and die. Ninety percent of these deaths are in people over the age of 65.

    That’s not always the case. In 2009-2010, a new strain of H1N1 swine flu emerged and it was the dominant strain that year. People over 65 seemed to have extra protection against that one, perhaps because they’d been infected by an ancestor of the virus in their youths. That year, flu killed more young adults and children.

    CDC doesn’t have precise numbers of deaths among adults. “The flu is so common that we don’t have deaths in adults as a reportable condition because states would be overwhelmed by counting them,” Finelli says. The CDC will calculate deaths later, after the season’s over, by comparing mortality rates overall to years past and using death certificate data.

    So what can people do? “It’s not too late to get vaccinated,” Finelli advises. “There is still vaccine out there.”

    Several strains of flu are circulating, and sometimes a B strain comes along after an A strain like H1N1 or H3N2 and sickens people in a new wave of illness. This year’s vaccine protects against an H1N1 strain, and H3N2 strain and one B strain of influenza.

    “Now we are down the the final number of doses that have been distributed,” Finelli added. Manufacturers made about 140 million doses this year.

    “We are also telling people to stay home when they are sick, so they are not spreading flu everywhere,” Finelli added. “We are also telling people that if they are elderly, to avoid other people who are sick. If your grandkids are sick, don’t volunteer to mind them.”

    People over 65 should also avoid places where sick people may be. “They should also ask that all their caretakers be vaccinated for the flu,” Finelli added.

    Studies have shown that if children are vaccinated against disease, it protects the rest of the population. This may be true for flu, too, says Duchin. “By vaccinating children we decrease the amount of pneumoccal pneumonia in older adults, which is a tremendous thing,” Duchin said.

    “You can protect older adults in the population by vaccinating the children.”
