La meilleure façon de se protéger des complications de la grippe est de se faire vacciner.
Où vous faire vacciner
Pour connaître toutes les informations sur la campagne de vaccination contre la grippe pour chacune des régions du Québec, consultez la section Où vous faire vacciner.
Certaines mesures de protection et d’hygiène peuvent aussi aider à prévenir la transmission de la grippe.
- Lavez-vous souvent les mains.
- Nettoyez votre environnement immédiat, par exemple la surface des meubles et les comptoirs.
- Suivez les conseils pour prévenir la transmission des virus et des bactéries.
- Restez à la maison dès que vous présentez des symptômes de la grippe.
À moins d’avis contraire du médecin, la maison est le meilleur endroit pour se soigner. En restant à la maison, vous limitez les contacts avec d’autres personnes ou avec d’autres infections qui peuvent causer des complications. Vous limitez aussi la transmission du virus.
- Suivez les conseils pour tousser ou éternuer sans contaminer.

Wandlungsfähiger Erreger: Das Influenza-Virus
An Grippe erkrankte Personen sind ab den ersten Symptomen circa eine Woche lang ansteckend. Bereits einen Tag nach der Infektion können Krankheitszeichen auftreten. Ohne Komplikationen ist die Grippe üblicherweise nach einigen Tagen bis einer Woche überstanden. Es gibt Medikamente, die helfen, die Vermehrung der Viren im Körper einzudämmen. Zum Einsatz kommen sie vor allem bei Patienten mit Vorerkrankungen. Sie sollten innerhalb von 48 Stunden nach dem Auftreten erster Symptome angewandt werden. Für Menschen ab 60 und andere Risikopersonen wird in Deutschland eine jährliche Impfung gegen Grippe empfohlen.
Als "Influenza" oder "echte Grippe" bezeichnet man eine Erkrankung durch das Influenza-Virus. Es gibt verschiedene Typen von Influenza-Viren (A, B, C). Am häufigsten und am gefährlichsten ist das Influenza-Virus Typ A. Es ist auf der ganzen Welt verbreitet und verändert sich ständig, was es schwierig macht, einer Infektion vorzubeugen.
Wichtig ist es, die echte Grippe vom grippalen Infekt zu unterscheiden. Bei einem "grippalen Infekt" handelt es sich normalerweise nicht um eine Infektion mit dem Influenza-Virus, sondern um eine Erkältung. Die Magen-Darm-Grippe hat ebenfalls nichts mit der Influenza zu tun. Dieser Begriff wird für Magen-Darm-Infektionen durch unterschiedliche Erreger verwendet, die zum Beispiel zu Durchfall und Erbrechen führen.
nach oben Wie infiziert man sich und wie lange ist man ansteckend?
Die Grippeviren sind nur wenige Tausendstel Millimeter groß. Sie befallen Schleimhautzellen, zum Beispiel in der Nase, und vermehren sich dort. Menschen stecken sich mit Grippe meist durch Tröpfcheninfektion an. Das kann beispielsweise geschehen, wenn eine erkrankte Person niest und andere die Tröpfchen einatmen. Influenza-Viren können bis zu mehrere Stunden außerhalb des Körpers überleben, bei niedrigen Temperaturen sogar noch länger. Kommen die Hände in Kontakt mit Gegenständen, auf denen sich virushaltige Sekrete befinden (zum Beispiel Türklinken) und fasst man sich anschließend damit an die Nase oder andere Schleimhäute, ist eine Infektion ebenfalls möglich.
Erkrankte sind ab dem Auftreten der ersten Symptome für ungefähr fünf bis sieben Tage ansteckend. Manchmal sind Betroffene sogar schon vor dem Auftreten der ersten Krankheitszeichen oder länger als eine Woche infektös.
Es gibt eine Reihe von Faktoren, die eine Erkrankung an Grippe und vor allem Komplikationen begünstigen. So zum Beispiel:
- Diabetes und andere Stoffwechselkrankheiten
- Alter von über 65 Jahren, hier reagiert das Immunsystem nicht mehr so gut auf neue Erreger
- Alter von weniger als einem Jahr, hier ist das Immunsystem noch unreif und reagiert nicht so effektiv
- Chronische Lungenerkrankungen wie Asthma, Lungenemphysem, chronische Bronchitis, Mukoviszidose
- Chronische Herzkrankheiten
- Unterdrückung des Immunsystems im Zuge einer medizinischen Behandlung
Eine Grippe sollte man ernst nehmen

I have expanded the section on aspartame withdrawal here, mainly because of your feedback (see the responses below). Many people have told me that even after realizing just how bad aspartame is, they just cannot stop using it. When they try to stop, they get that “need to have it” feeling. They also experience classic withdrawal symptoms such as headache, anger, or anxiety until they get the next hit.
Excitotoxins and your brain
All the reasons that cause this addiction seem to be unclear. We know that aspartame breaks down to a highly absorbable form of methanol in the liver, which impairs dopamine receptors witch decreases serotonin. This causes an addiction similar to alcoholism which also leads to depression and mood disorders. Some drinks such as Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi contain caffeine as well, and seem even harder to quit (Diet Coke seems to be the clear “addiction” winner).
Aspartame (like MSG) is an excitotoxin. An excitotoxin has effects similar to the way the word sounds. It is a toxin that excites brain cells to a much higher level. During this time you will heightened clarity and sharper cognition. After this brief “rush” it actually kills the cells. This is believed to be the cause of many brain disorders from cancer and stroke, to multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
Check out this reader response I have dubbed: Aspartame Poisoning. Read for yourself the unbelievable damage she claims is caused by years of high consumption of Diet Coke and Diet Dr Pepper. There are also many more responses below. This is a much more serious problem than most of us think.
Please let me know if YOU are addicted to aspartame or have aspartame withdrawal. Please also list your symptoms. I would like to help others break the habit.
Please, please, please, help me, help others on this!
Note : Due to popular demand (and my love for the products), I have added the Internal Cleansing products below. This are THE BEST ones I could find. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments on them.
Stevia: There is some controversy over using Stevia. I am a BIG FAN (see Omica Organics to the right of this page). That said, I mix my Stevia with 1/2 Raw Honey or Grade B Maple Syrup. It just “feels right”. Try it, and let me know what you think. Remember, TRUVIA IS NOT STEVIA! It is made by Coka-cola and Cargil (yes, poisoned again).

Hi I decided to give up coke zero last week as I was spending so much money on it. I would usually drink about 2-3 litres a day and on the weekends too many to count. I’m 41 and have been a Diet/coke zero drinker for about 20 years. Well it is day 8 and I feel great. On the second day of detox I had such a bad headache that I couldn’t go to work and had this ringing in my ears. I have also noticed that I am not eating anything sweet like chocolate or cake and can’t believe that I am writing this, but I don’t want any! People have noticed that I have lost weight (around the tummy). For people that are finding it hard, keep going you will find it easier and you will feel better. So glad i found this site.
Well done you. Thinking about it, I’d have chocolate every day. Never really had a sweet tooth but don’t even want chocolate now. Keep at it xxxx
35 yr old female. Consumed 5 to 6 packets of crystal light a day for approximately the last 10 years of my life (major addiction). I don’t like water, so I flavored all my water. I decided to get healthy. I cut sugar, processed foods of all kinds, caffeine, milk, bread (anything that could be converted to sugar), HOWEVER…I did not cut my artificially sweetened drink packets. They are zero calories, zero sugar, zero carbs…so what’s the big deal? I held onto that one addiction. The one thing I didn’t wanna deprive myself of.
So I started reading articles about how “artificial sweeteners make you fat”. How could this be? Long story short, I called a nutrition expert and had the whole thing explained to me. So I cut my drink packets cold turkey. I can tell you this! Of all the withdrawal symptoms I’ve gone through on this journey (be it sugar, caffeine, whatever. ) Aspartame takes the cake. Immediately within hours of not getting up and drinking my morning dose, the headache set it. By about 3pm I was experiencing the WORST headache I’ve ever had in my life. Felt as if my brain was swelling and pressing against every part of my skull. My muscles went tight. My knees went stiff and joints ached that haven’t ever ached. I was sweating on and off throughout the day. Literally bed ridden and useless. Felt almost like a bad flu. I slept all day trying to sleep off the headache. Day 2, tried to play in a softball game, felt extremely weak, sweaty, jittery, foggy, elbows and knees hurt…head still hurting. No appetite, angry and moody as hell. I shouldn’t have ever gone.
So today is my day 3 without aspartame. MY HEAD STILL HURTS! My brain feels like a bruise. I know I’m only one diet drink away from feeling better, but I’m not gonna do it. F you aspartame!
I add Truly Natural Vitamin C from Healthforce to my water now. Every bit as good as Crystal Light IMO and super great for you. Hope that helps,
Hi Leslie, Hope you can hang in. It. Ignatian take 4 to 6 weeks, but know that your body has done all it,can do and is mending. It just hurts to get better.
Well done Lesley. The headaches will get better. I’m so conscious of buying bottled drinks without inspecting the additives now but that’s also become second nature. Weirdest thing is going into a pub and not asking for Bacardi and diet coke. For years I gave my kids diet coke as it was ‘better’ than fat coke cos it had no calories. I used to moan like mad if they drank fat coke. Now I’m asking for it too. Good luck with your ongoing battle 🙂 Love and hugs xx
- Be aware, one of the main ways of transmission of this virus is the air.
- When in a closed space with someone with a cold, cover your face.
- When someone sneezes or coughs, the germs travel and lands on surfaces.
- Wash your hands after you touch doorknobs, keyboards, remote control, ATM machine.
- Be aware of hand to face contamination.
- Avoid people who appear to be sick.
- Eat a healthy diet.
- Eat foods that strengthen the immune system.
One of the best common cold and flu treatments and prevention is, avoiding someone who is sick and washing your hand frequently. Thankfully today there are many hand sanitizer on the market. Make sure you always have a bottle of sanitizer with you, if you can’t wash your hands immediately. Also, when at home periodically disinfect surfaces and doorknobs regularly. Antibacterial soap containing triclosan is also very helpful.
Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy; however, one of the most significant pregnancy symptoms is a delayed or missed period.
Understanding the signs of pregnancy is important because each symptom may have causes other than pregnancy. You may experience pregnancy signs within a week of conception.
Some women report that they did not experience any symptom for a few weeks. If you need free testing, you can search below or order affordable early detection pregnancy tests online.
If you would like to speak to someone about your symptoms or the possibility of being pregnant, you may call the APA toll-free helpline at 1-800-672-2296, or search locally by your zip code below.
What are the most common first signs of pregnancy? In a poll conducted by the American Pregnancy Association, the most commonly reported first symptoms of pregnancy included:
- 29% of women surveyed reported a missed period as their first pregnancy symptom
- 25% indicated that nausea was the first sign of pregnancy
- 17% reported that a change in their breasts was the initial symptom of pregnancy
While implantation bleeding is often considered the first pregnancy symptom, the survey conducted by the American Pregnancy Association revealed that only 3% of women identified implantation bleeding as their first sign of pregnancy.
Each of your symptoms of pregnancy below could be explained by other causes. What else could they be?
Spotting or light bleeding: If pregnant, this symptom is usually associated with implantation bleeding and is considered one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. The embryo usually implants to the uterine between 6 to 12 days after conception. Some women will experience spotting as well as cramping. Other women do not even notice implantation bleeding or cramping, so don’t worry if you are trying to get pregnant and don’t experience these symptoms; you could still be pregnant.
When this implantation occurs, light bleeding or spotting is perfectly normal. This symptom is sometimes accompanied by light cramping. Many women will conceive and not notice any implantation bleeding, so do not worry if you are trying to get pregnant and do not see this symptom, you could still be pregnant.
Missed period: A delayed or missed period is the most common pregnancy symptom leading a woman to test for pregnancy. When you become pregnant, your next period should be missed.
Is it possible to be pregnant and still have a period? Some women can bleed while they are pregnant, but typically this bleeding will be shorter or lighter than a normal period. A missed period can be a symptom of pregnancy caused by something else.
Nausea or morning sickness: Nausea or morning sickness is the second most commonly reported first sign of pregnancy. Experienced to some degree by most expecting women, nausea typically shows up between 2 to 8 weeks after conception.
The most recent data for the mortality (death rates) from influenza rate (death rate) for the United States in 2016 indicates that mortality from influenza varies from year to year. Death rates estimated by the CDC range from about 12,000 during 2011-2012 to 56,000 during 2012-2013.
Haemophilus influenzae is a bacterium that was incorrectly considered to cause the flu until the virus was demonstrated to be the correct cause in 1933. This bacterium can cause lung infections in infants and children, and it occasionally causes ear, eye, sinus, joint, and a few other infections, but it does not cause the flu.
Another confusing term is stomach flu. This term refers to a gastrointestinal tract infection, not a respiratory infection like influenza (flu); stomach flu (gastroenteritis) is not caused by influenza viruses.
Although initially symptoms of influenza may mimic those of a cold, influenza is more debilitating with symptoms of fatigue, fever, and respiratory congestion. Colds can be caused by over 100 different virus types, but only influenza viruses (and subtypes) A, B, and C cause the flu. In addition, colds do not lead to life-threatening illnesses like pneumonia, but severe infections with influenza viruses can lead to pneumonia or even death.

Compared with most other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, influenza (flu) infection usually causes a more severe illness with a mortality rate (death rate) of about 0.1% of people who are infected with the virus. Cold symptoms (for example, sore throat, runny nose, cough (with possible phlegm production), congestion, and slight fever) are similar to flu symptoms, but the flu symptoms are more severe, last longer, and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and cough that is often a dry cough.
The following table is provided by the CDC to help distinguish between a cold and influenza:
Although some of the symptoms of influenza may mimic those of food poisoning, others do not. Most symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, watery diarrhea, abdominal pain, cramps, and fever. Note that the majority of food poisoning symptoms are related to the gastrointestinal tract, except for fever. The common flu signs and symptoms include fever but also include symptoms that are not typical for food poisoning, because the flu is a respiratory disease. Consequently, respiratory symptoms of nasal congestion, dry cough, and some breathing problems help distinguish the flu from food poisoning.
Influenza viruses cause the flu and are divided into three types, designated A, B, and C. Influenza A and influenza B are responsible for epidemics of respiratory illness that occur almost every winter and are often associated with increased rates of hospitalization and death. Influenza type C differs from types A and B in some important ways. Type C infection usually causes either a very mild respiratory illness or no symptoms at all; it does not cause epidemics and does not have the severe public-health impact of influenza types A and B. Efforts to control the impact of influenza are aimed at types A and B, and the remainder of this discussion will be devoted only to these two types.
Influenza viruses continually change over time, usually by mutation (change in the viral RNA). This constant changing often enables the virus to evade the immune system of the host (humans, birds, and other animals) so that the host is susceptible to changing influenza virus infections throughout life. This process works as follows: A host infected with influenza virus develops antibodies against that virus; as the virus changes, the "first" antibody no longer recognizes the "newer" virus and infection can occur because the host does not recognize the new flu virus as a problem until the infection is well under way. The first antibody developed may, in some instances, provide partial protection against infection with a new influenza virus. In 2009, almost all individuals had no antibodies that could recognize the novel H1N1 virus immediately.
Type A viruses are divided into subtypes or strains based on differences in two viral surface proteins called the hemagglutinin (H) and the neuraminidase (N). There are at least 16 known H subtypes and nine known N subtypes. These surface proteins can occur in many combinations. When spread by droplets or direct contact, the virus, if not killed by the host's immune system, replicates in the respiratory tract and damages host cells. In people who are immune compromised (for example, pregnant women, infants, cancer patients, asthma patients, people with pulmonary disease, and many others), the virus can cause viral pneumonia or stress the individual's system to make them more susceptible to bacterial infections, especially bacterial pneumonia. Both pneumonia types, viral and bacterial, can cause severe disease and sometimes death.

You are experiencing ascension symptoms while the planet and the environment is going through major physical changes.
Just as mother earth is releasing toxins that man has caused for centuries, we are feeling unexplained symptoms.You are also feeling symptoms from star surges.
Ascension is an evolutionary process which involves raising human consciousness.
This will create a much more highly evolved planet and a much more highly evolved human.
As the ascension process continues, the inhabitants of the earth will "ascend" through the human body and return to Source, or the Creator.
So feeling the spiritual awakening symptoms of ascension is a very necessary part of man's evolution.
Here are some ascension symptoms that I have felt:
- Changing sleep patterns: restlessness, waking up two or three times a night. Feeling tired after you wake up and sleeping off and on during the day. I sleep for about 2-3 hours, wake up, go back to sleep for another couple of hours, wake again, and go back to sleep again. I have felt a surge of energy coming into my body from the crown which has kept me awake for a long time, then it subsides.
- A pressure or sense of emotions congested in the heart chakra (the middle of the chest). This is not to be confused with the heart, which is located to the left of the heart chakra.
- Old "issues" re-surfacing and people with whom I need to work it out appear in my life suddenly. There are situations we need to complete and emotions to release. Such as working through issues of self-worth, abundance, creativity, addictions, etc.
- Your senses become much stronger which leads to Increased sensitivity.
Sight: Blurry vision, shimmering objects, seeing glittery particles, auras around people, plants, animals, and objects.
Hearing: Increased or decreased hearing - muffled hearing as if under water. Other symptoms are hearing white noise in the head, beeps, tones, music or electronic patterns. More and more people are discovering that they hear voices (from the spiritual realm).
Senses of smell, touch, and/or taste are increased. I can smell and taste chemical additives in some foods in a rather unpleasant manner while other foods may taste wonderful. There are also some foods that I no longer like.
- Power surges: All of a sudden I feel hot or cold from head to toe. It is a momentary sensation, but uncomfortable. More recently I experience waves or currents of energy rolling through me. Sometimes the energy is so intense I feel a little nauseated.
- Ascension Weight Gain. I have been gaining and losing weight rather quickly.
Read this explanation that makes it easier to understand what you are experiencing and how you can ask for help:
People from all over the world visit salt mines in the Himalayas, Austria and Germany, known for their salt hot springs, where people go to rejuvenate and to have a sense of well-being. This is from the dry negative ions in the air caused by the salt. Many people visit the oceans and sea for this benefit.
