Over-the-counter remedies: Some antihistamines (the sedating varieties) can help cut down on the sneeze reflex. But most experts advise you to leave this fairly innocuous symptom untreated.

The symptom: Chills and fever

What it means: Chills are the way the body generates heat when it feels cold. They usually precede a fever, the body's method for defending itself by raising its temperature to fight a virus.

When to worry: Call your doctor if your temperature rises above 102 degrees, if a fever persists for 72 hours without breaking, or if you also have shortness of breath or dizziness.

Home remedies: To stay hydrated, sip your favorite liquids. Sponging off with warm water may also give you relief.

Over-the-counter remedies: Acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or naproxen (Aleve) can lower a fever that's making you uncomfortable.

The symptom: Sore throat

What it means: Mucus is dripping into the back of your throat, causing irritation and inflammation.

When to worry: If you have severe difficulty swallowing or breathing, call your doctor to rule out a more serious illness, such as a bacterial infection.

Home remedies: Gargle with warm salt water. Soothe a scratchy throat with liquids, such as caffeine-free tea and broth, or cool down a fiery one with an ice pop.

Over-the-counter remedies: Acetaminophen or ibuprofen will help decrease inflammation.

The symptom: Runny nose

Herzmuskel- oder Herzbeutelentzündungen

Die Inkubationszeit, also die Zeit von der Ansteckung bis zum Ausbruch der Grippe, beträgt zwischen 18 Stunden und drei Tagen. Bereits in dieser Zeit besteht Ansteckungsgefahr, auch wenn sich noch keine Symptome einer Grippe zeigen. Bis zu einer Woche nach der Ansteckung lassen sich bei Erwachsenen – bei Kindern bis zu zwei Wochen – noch Viren im Auswurf (Sekret) nachweisen. Selbst bei einem günstigen Verlauf und wenn die Grippebeschwerden bereits abgeklungen sind, können Betroffene noch andere Menschen mit Grippe anstecken.

Ursache der Grippe ist eine Infektion mit Influenzaviren. Es werden drei Gruppen von Grippeviren unterschieden: Influenza A, B und C. Influenzaviren der Gruppe C bedingen nur eine milde Grippe, die häufig gar nicht als Grippe, sondern eher als Erkältung wahrgenommen wird. Viren der Gruppe B sind hingegen für die jährliche, saisonale Grippe in den nasskalten Jahreszeiten verantwortlich. Influenza-A-Viren bedingen schwere Grippeerkrankungen, die sich zu Grippewellen oder Pandemien ausweiten können.

Die Ansteckung mit den ursächlichen Grippeerregern erfolgt sehr häufig durch Tröpfcheninfektion beim Niesen oder Husten (direkte Ansteckung). Auch über indirekten Kontakt ist eine Ansteckung mit Grippe möglich. Der Grund: Grippeviren können auch außerhalb des Körpers noch einige Tage infektiös sein. Über Handinnenflächen (nach dem Hineinniesen in die Hand) werden Grippeviren beispielsweise oft weiter verbreitet. Über Türgriffe, Tische, Haltestangen in öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln und alle Gegenstände, die von vielen Menschen berührt werden, kann man sich deshalb mit Grippe anstecken. Die Erreger müssen dann nur noch über die eigenen Hände durch Nase und Mund in die Schleimhäute gelangen.

Entgegen der weitverbreiteten Regel „Hand vor den Mund“ ist es sinnvoll, wenn Sie beim Niesen oder Husten den Arm vor dem Mund halten. So vermeiden Sie, dass sich andere Menschen durch indirekten Kontakt bei Ihnen mit Grippe anstecken. Außerdem vermindern Sie trotzdem das Risiko für eine Tröpfcheninfektion, da Sie nicht in den Raum husten, sondern in Ihre Armbeuge.

Kontakt mit Influenzaviren muss nicht zwangsläufig zu einer Grippe führen. Schwere und Verlauf der Grippe sind von Mensch zu Mensch verschieden, auch wenn die Grippe durch den gleichen Erregertyp verursacht wurde. Dabei spielt auch das Immunsystem eine große Rolle. Häufig ist das Immunsystem in Stresssituationen, bei länger anhaltender, nährstoffarmer Ernährung, in der Schwangerschaft oder bei Erkrankungen geschwächt – dann hat die Grippe leichteres Spiel.

Mit zunehmendem Alter und durchgemachten Influenza-Erkrankungen werden Sie in der Regel auch widerstandsfähiger gegen eine Grippe. Obwohl sich Grippeviren ständig verändern (sie mutieren), gibt es doch Verwandtschaften zwischen den einzelnen Typen. Ihr Immunsystem erinnert sich an die Erreger der bereits durchgemachten Grippe-Erkrankungen und baut somit eine sogenannte Teilimmunität auf. Unter Umständen kann diese Teilimmunität dazu beitragen, dass bei bestimmten Grippeviren die Grippe nicht mehr so schwer verläuft oder es gar nicht erst zum Ausbruch der Grippe kommt.

Die Immunsysteme von Babys und Kleinkindern haben noch keine oder sehr wenige Grippe-Erkrankungen durchgemacht. Deshalb stecken sie sich auch besonders schnell mit Grippe an. Im hohen Alter nimmt der im Laufe des Lebens aufgebaute Immunschutz durch das bei alten Menschen schwächere Immunsystem wieder etwas ab, sodass die Grippe bei älteren Menschen schwerer verlaufen kann.

Influenza-Diagnose: Andere Erkrankungen ausschließen

Wenn Sie mit den typischen Symptomen einer Virusgrippe zum Arzt gehen, wird dieser häufig schon nach einem ausführlichen Gespräch (Anamnese) und gegebenenfalls einer körperlichen Untersuchung die Diagnose Grippe stellen. Typische Grippe-Beschwerden sind:

Um die Grippe zweifelsfrei zu diagnostizieren, wird der Arzt bei Ihnen einen Nasen- oder Rachenabstrich durchführen. Dabei nimmt er mit einem langen Wattestäbchen von der Schleimhaut an Nase und Rachen einen Abstrich. Das mit dem Abstrich entnommene Sekret wird im Labor virologisch untersucht. Der Abstrich wird durchgeführt, wenn eine eindeutige Diagnose nötig ist, zum Beispiel bei Schwangeren oder Menschen mit einer Grunderkrankung, oder um den Virustyp eindeutig festzustellen. Das Entnehmen des Abstrichs ist etwas unangenehm, in der Regel aber nicht schmerzhaft.

Q: If I don’t travel to countries with Malaria outbreaks, then I should be okay, right?

A: Unfortunately, no. When there have been localized outbreaks in a particular area here in the United States, it is because of person-to-mosquito-to-person transmission: a mosquito here in the United States bites someone who acquired Malaria while traveling to an endemic area of the world. That mosquito, infected with the Malaria parasites, then goes after another blood meal and bites someone else nearby, thereby injecting that new person with the Malaria virus.

In very rare cases, blood transfusions have transmitted Malaria in the past, but the CDC has noted that these situations are preventable if the donor informs the blood collection agency of any travels to endemic areas of the world.

Q: Where are the areas of the world where Malaria is found?

A: Malaria can be found in Asia, Africa, Australia, Central and South America, the Middle East, parts of the Caribbean Islands, New Zealand, and in many islands of the central and southern Pacific Ocean.

Q: How many people in the world die from Malaria?

A: According to the CDC, out of the 350-500 million cases of Malaria that occur each year, more than a million people die. Most of the deaths occur in the very young in the sub-Sahara regions of Africa. These numbers may not tell the whole story, since many of those who contract the disease in certain areas, particularly in developing countries, do not seek or are unable to get proper medical attention.

A: Symptoms of Malaria are often similar to those of a severe case of the flu, including high fever, strong chills, head and body aches, and diarrhea and vomiting.

Other complications include jaundice, anemia, kidney failure, seizures and coma. Without proper medical attention, death may occur. It is a very serious illness in many regions of developing countries around the world.

Q: Are there any vaccines or medicines to fight Malaria?

A: Yes and no. There are no vaccines currently available, although creating such a vaccine is a top priority in health research. The parasite causing Malaria is constantly changing in its antigen composition, making it difficult for a vaccine to be created.

Now for the good news: there are two main types of medicines. When treated promptly with medication, it is possible to rid the body of the parasites that cause Malaria.

Q: If there are no vaccines against Malaria, how do I keep from getting it?

A: If you are planning to travel to countries where Malaria outbreaks occur, check with your physician or health professional about medications to take. This should be done about a month or so before the travel date.

Here in our country, the best method is prevention. By using common sense and technology, we can work toward preventing mosquitoes from biting our families, pets and guests. Mosquito traps can be a part of that prevention.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about West Nile Virus

Q: What is the West Nile Virus and what are the symptoms?

A: The West Nile Virus is a serious infection that, when contracted, the symptoms include the following: severe headache, high fever, stiff neck, muscle weakness, numbness, tremors, convulsions, disorientation, loss of vision, a dazed state, paralysis, and coma as well as meningitis or encephalitis.

Milder infections usually have symptoms similar to influenza, with headache and body aches, fever, nausea and vomiting, and swollen glands or a rash.

Q: How long will it take before a person who is bitten shows symptoms of West Nile Virus?

A: It usually takes anywhere from three days to two weeks before symptoms appear. This is known as the incubation period for humans.

Q: Is there a vaccine for the West Nile Virus?

A: No, not at this time, although there are laboratories working on creating a vaccine for this mosquito-borne disease.

Q: How far has West Nile Virus spread here in North America?

A: It is believed to have entered the U.S. in 1999 at New York City via an imported bird. Since then it has spread to all areas of the United States as well as into Mexico and Canada. Birds appear to be the main conveyor of the disease here.

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?

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.

Who is at high risk for developing flu complications?
The flu is a serious disease, especially for certain age groups and people with certain chronic health conditions, such as:

  • Children younger than 5, but especially younger than 2 years old
  • Adults 65 years of age and older
  • Women who are pregnant or who have just had a baby
  • People with chronic lung disease (such as asthma and COPD), diabetes (type 1 and 2), heart disease, neurologic conditions, blood disorders, weak immune systems and certain other long-term medical conditions
  • People who are morbidly obese

The flu can lead to complications such as pneumonia and bronchitis and can make chronic health problems worse. To help prevent the spread of the flu, those who live with people in a high-risk group and healthcare workers who provide care to high-risk patients should also receive an annual influenza vaccine.

Can the flu vaccine give me the flu?
The flu vaccine cannot give you the flu. The viruses contained in flu vaccines are weakened or inactivated (killed), meaning they cannot cause the full-blown illness. The most common side effect of the injectable flu vaccine is soreness at the spot where the shot was given. Persons who receive the nasal spray may experience a runny nose or headache.

If you get flu-like symptoms soon after getting vaccinated, it can mean you may have been exposed to the flu before you received your vaccine, or during the two-week period it takes the body to gain protection after vaccination. It might also mean you are sick with another illness that causes symptoms similar to the flu.

For more information about the flu and the benefits of the flu vaccine, talk to your health care provider or contact your local health department.

Where can I get a flu vaccination?

  • Contact your local health department
  • Check with your health care provider

Influenzanet: a network of European citizens fighting against influenza

Influenzanet is a Europe-wide network to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet. It is operational in ten countries. In contrast with the traditional system of sentinel networks of mainly primary care physicians, Influenzanet obtains its data directly from the population. This creates a fast and flexible monitoring system whose uniformity allows for direct comparison of ILI rates between countries.

Click on each country to visit the national platform.

New paper on the Journal of Medical Internet Research

The Influenzanet consortium has published a new paper on the Journal of Medical Internet Research titled: "Influenzanet: Citizens Among 10 Countries Collaborating to Monitor Influenza in Europe". In this paper, we describe the Influenzanet participatory surveillance system and provide an overview of the results obtained from different analyses performed with the data, including representativeness analyses, data validation (comparing ILI incidence rates between Influenzanet and sentinel medical practice networks), identification of ILI risk factors, and influenza vaccine effectiveness (VE) studies previously published. Additionally, we present new VE analyses for the Netherlands, stratified by age and chronic illness, and offer suggestions for further work and considerations on the continuity and sustainability of the participatory system.

The flu activity page has been updated with incidence figures from the active countries. Read more.

Iodine deficiency is most common in parts of the world farther from large water bodies. Therefore, people living in inland areas and those in arid regions are usually iodine deficient because they do not eat marine foods.

According to a WHO (World Health Organization) statement made in 2007, about 2 billion of the world’s population do not get sufficient iodine from their diets. The WHO called iodine deficiency the single, most important but preventable cause of mental retardation.

Besides those who live too far away from marine life and so do not get enough iodine in their diet, other groups of people who are prone to iodine deficiency include:

  • Pregnant women
  • People exposed to radiation
  • People with selenium deficiency

Iodine deficiency can also be caused by chemicals such as perchlorates, thiocyanates and also goitrogens such as calcium. In addition, tobacco and alcohol intake may increase the risk of this deficiency.

In addition, women are more likely than men to develop iodine deficiency.

A 24-hour urine iodine collection is the most common medical test for diagnosing iodine deficiency. The body eliminates 90% of the iodine ingested daily in the urine, therefore, the level of iodine in urine is a good indication of the amount of iodine found in the body.

Iodine deficiency causes a number of medical disorders including goiter and cretinism.

Other symptoms of iodine deficiency include depression, fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, impaired memory and mental abilities, slow heartbeats and increased sensitivity to cold.

Goiter is the medical term for the enlargement of the thyroid gland. When this gland swells, it can also cause the swelling of the larynx and neck.

Goiter can form when the production of T4 falls sharply. To renew the production, TSH is secreted in large amounts from the pituitary gland.

However, if the low production of T4 is caused by iodine deficiency, the increased secretion of TSH does not translate into an increased synthesis of T4. Instead, TSH needlessly stimulates the growth of new cells in the thyroid gland, and this causes the enlargement of the gland.

In mild cases, which are the most common, a mild iodine deficiency may lead to increased production of T3 in the thyroid gland. However, since most of the body’s store of T3 is made from the available T4 which are not being replenished, T4 is rapidly depleted.

Goiter is a big public health problem not only in poor countries but in some affluent nations of Europe and in Australia and New Zealand. The treatment is, however, simple. By supplying iodine supplements, goiter cases can be quickly resolved.

The easiest way to provide iodine supplementation to any population is by mandating that sale of only iodized salts.

I hope it inspires others as well. They do offer coaches for a fee, but I’m doing it on my own. There are a number of vegetables that contain protein. I have never been good at eating vegetable, but juicing is completely different. It’s like getting Chinese food, or a bowl of vegetable soup, when they’re mixed together it’s a different animal.

And for the lady that has colitis, I have that too. I add cabbage into my juice because it is suppose to be able to heal ulcers.

I guess when you’re in great pain, you hold onto anything that gives you (temporary) pleasure, like Tab, because it’s easier than giving it up. As a person in the movie said, he wasn’t in denial that he had diabetes; he was just in denial that he had to do something about it. I guess that’s been me. I congratulate all of you who have succeeded in quitting your addictions and I hope I will join your ranks quickly.

For Diane Flemming I send my prayers. I wish that any evidence they found later could help her, but I guess as long as people are being paid off to allow these poisons into people it doesn’t seem like it’s possible… but I like to believe anything is possible. I hope she gets her miracle and is released.

As for all these people who are causing harm to people around the globe I wish somehow we could find a way to stop them. Either way I believe in Karma, and I’m so thankful I don’t have theirs. We need government leaders that refuse payoffs/job opportunities, and will follow the laws they make to protect the public.

Thank you all for sharing, it is so appreciated and helpful.

Regardless of age, a woman's hormones all work together like a symphony; if one part of the orchestra is not functioning properly, then the melody you produce is out of tune. Signs of hormonal imbalance in women are a very real quality of life issue. All women need to be aware these signs of hormone imbalance.

Over the last 100 years as we have doubled our life expectancy, the soft tissue glands which create our hormones are being forced to produce them longer than ever. Our increasingly stressful lives, worsening nutrition and lack of proper fitness combine to result in declining levels of hormones in our bodies.

Even when only one unbalanced hormone is present, it may result in the following hormonal imbalance symptoms in women.

Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Women:

That beautiful, tuned melody that we look for is your optimal health, free from premenopause symptoms and menopausal symptoms. Women with balanced hormones integrated with proper nutrition and fitness can have a better quality of life as they age.

    The 9 Very Best Essential Oils For Treating Colds And Flu

    Image source: essentialhealth.com

    You know the feeling. It may start with a scratchy throat or with a few more aches and pains than normal. Or it could begin with a runny nose and a feeling of exhaustion. Yes, it’s a cold coming on — or maybe worse — the flu. Before you reach for the antihistamine, however, why not try an effective natural remedy instead?

    Essential oils have been used for centuries to fight the symptoms of the common cold. You can add them to your bathwater, diffuse them in the air you breathe or even apply them directly to your skin. Essential oils help the body fight off infection and serve to strengthen the immune system. In her book The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils, Julia Lawless explains that essential oils can boost the body’s defense system against bacteria, fungi and infections.

    Here is our list of essential oils and essential oil blends that will help you stay healthy this cold and flu season. If you are unfamiliar with essential oils, please seek the advice of a qualified aromatherapist before using them. Be sure to use in moderation and to dilute or blend the essential oils correctly. Also, realize that some oils are contraindicated in certain conditions.

    1. Tea Tree Essential Oil

    Extracted from the tea tree (Melaleuca), which is native to Southeast Queensland and New South Wales, Australia, tea tree oil has antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic and antiviral properties.

    Used in an inhaler or in a bath, tea tree oil helps you fight the congestion and the resulting discomfort caused by the cold or the flu.

    2. Pine Essential Oil

    Pine essential oil, derived from the pine tree (Pinus Sylvestris), helps to clear the nasal passages. It also can be helpful in relieving sore throat pain.

    3. Lavender Essential Oil

    Lavender essential oil (Lavandula Angustifolia) has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties, and it is gentle enough for use with children.

    Current outbreaks/ cases globally (with incidence):

    Avian Influenza is an infection caused by avian bird influenza viruses. These influenza viruses occur naturally among birds (10). Wild birds worldwide carry the viruses in their intestines but usually do not get sick from them. However, Avian influenza is very contagious among birds and can make some domesticated birds, including chickens, ducks, and turkeys, very sick and kill them. Infected birds shed influenza virus in their saliva, nasal secretions, and feces (10). Most cases of Avian influenza infection in humans have resulted from contact with infected poultry (example: domesticated chickens, ducks, and turkeys) or surfaces contaminated with secretion/excretions from infected birds (10).

    According to the World Health Organization (WHO) in the year 2009 Avian Influenza outbreaks occurred in the following countries:

    -As of May 6, 2009, Of the 111 cases confirmed to date in Viet Nam, 56 have been fatal(13).

    -As of May 6, 2009, Of the 68 cases confirmed to date in Egypt, 23 have been fatal(13).

    There are many different flu viruses. Each year, a new flu vaccine is developed. It is designed to fight 4 flu viruses that scientists expect to be most common that year. This yearly vaccine is also called the "seasonal flu vaccine" or the "annual flu vaccine." "Seasonal" doesn't mean you need to get a flu vaccine every spring, summer, fall, and winter. You only need it once a year.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend the nasal spray this flu season. Studies found the nasal spray offered little or no protection for children ages 2 through 17 last flu season.

    The flu vaccine works most of the time. Each year's flu vaccine fights the 4 most common flu viruses for that year. If they come in contact with a different flu virus, they could still get the flu. But getting the flu vaccine is always better than not getting it.

    The inactive flu viruses in the vaccine trick the body into thinking it is being infected, so the body builds immunity against the flu. Then, if a real flu virus tries to infect that person, their body is ready to fight against it.

    Can you still get the flu after you get a flu shot?

    Yes, but even if you get the flu, the vaccine can help lessen the symptoms. The flu vaccine takes about two weeks to work.

    No, a flu shot cannot cause flu illness.

    Someone I know didn't feel well after getting the flu vaccine. Why?

    Flu vaccines have been given since the 1940's, hundreds of millions of times. Almost all people who get one have no serious problems. Sometimes people get sore at the spot where they get a vaccine. Very rarely, some people get a fever, pain or weakness after getting the flu shot. In both cases, this usually goes away in a day or two.

    A vaccine, like any medicine, may cause serious allergic reactions in very rare cases. Get medical help right away if hoarseness or wheezing, hives, paleness, weakness, a fast heartbeat, or dizziness occur after getting the shot. Also, about 1 person in a million can get an illness called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) following the flu vaccine.
