• Schwangere ab dem zweiten Schwangerschaftsdrittel
  • Ältere Menschen (ab 60 Jahre)
  • Menschen mit Immunschwäche (durch Diabetes, Asthma oder Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen)
  • Menschen, die berufsbedingten Kontakt zu anderen Menschen haben (vor allem auch medizinisches Personal)

Diese Gesellschaftsgruppen sind entweder durch eine Vorerkrankung oder bestimmte Tätigkeiten besonders gefährdet. Vor allem für Menschen mit einem bereits geschwächten Immunsystem ist eine Grippeimpfung sinnvoll, da in diesen Fällen die Krankheit besonders schwer und lange ausfallen kann.

Um sich vor Influenzaviren zu schützen, gibt es grundsätzlich auch weitere Möglichkeiten:

  • Oft und gründlich (mit Seife!) die Hände waschen und diese gut trocken putzen mit sauberen Tüchern
  • Vermeiden Sie auch Kontakt zu den Schleimhäuten, wie Mund und Augen
  • Halten Sie Abstand zu bereits Erkrankten und generell in einer Phase der Grippewelle, ist es ratsam anderen Menschen nicht zu nahe zu kommen
  • Immunsystem stärken mit gesunder Ernährung und Bewegung

Fentanyl is one of the strongest opiate drugs on the market. It is not a long-lasting drug so it is often used for surgery recovery and for breakthrough pain—meaning that when a person is already taking an opiate but has temporary pain that breaks through the opiate barrier, they may be given fentanyl.

Time-release formulations for fentanyl provide strong pain relief over time. They come in two forms—a lollipop and a patch. Fentanyl also comes as a small piece of film that can be dissolved under the tongue and a pill meant to be lodged inside the cheek. In hospital settings, fentanyl can be injected. For the individual abusing the drug outside a hospital, this is highly dangerous, as the difference between a therapeutic dose and a deadly dose is very small.

Several years ago illicit fentanyl entered the scene of the developing opioid crisis, where addicts seeking a stronger high were willing to risk overdose by using heroin cut with the drug. The fact that fentanyl is 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine, even a tiny bit too much can be fatal. When dealers began mixing unknown amounts of fentanyl with heroin and other drugs in order to increase their profits—often selling to an unsuspecting customer—overdose began to take the life of countless individuals across the U.S.

As with any opiate, the main symptoms of fentanyl abuse are euphoria, drowsiness, lethargy and mellowness. Fentanyl very quickly creates a tolerance to high doses, so a dose that is adequate for the intended high one week will probably not create that intended high even a few days later.

There are many other signs and symptoms of using fentanyl, either medically or illicitly, that are not desirable.

These include:

  • Dizziness and lightheadedness
  • Dry mouth
  • Retention of urine
  • Suppression of breathing
  • Severe constipation
  • Itching or hives
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Headache
  • Difficulty seeing
  • Depression
  • Hallucinations
  • Bad dreams
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Sweating
  • Shaking
  • Swollen extremities

In most cases, addiction is accompanied by a deterioration in personal integrity. It takes many unethical or criminal acts to maintain an addiction over time—either expenditure of large amounts of personal money or thefts, prescription fraud, doctor-shopping or other crimes, to get the drugs that are needed. A fentanyl addict normally has secrets from most or all of the people they encounter regularly. If the thefts are from a workplace, as often happens, they will be living a secret life while at work. Hospitals, pharmacies and nursing homes are often the sites of fentanyl theft by desperate employees.

Although alcoholism is present in 20% to 50% of hospitalized patients, it is diagnosed only about 5% of the time. A poll of physicians affiliated to the American Medical Association revealed that 71% of them believed they were too ambivalent or not competent to properly treat alcoholic patients.

Taking into consideration the research and science now readily available, the facts are clear concerning the dangers of alcohol withdrawal. Alcohol withdrawal should never be taken lightly and, in light of Dr. Maldonado’s findings relating to potential failings within the medical community; when considering detoxification from alcohol for yourself or a loved one, take the time necessary to research detox facilities within your area. Use the above information to ask questions of the facility. Armed with the knowledge of the severity and duration of alcohol withdrawal symptoms, make sure your choice of detox facility is prepared and equipped to deal with all of the above symptoms, from benign shakes to the potentially fatal DTs and seizures. When dealing with alcohol withdrawal, your life or the life of a loved one, may well depend upon it.

Die Influenza ist eine Viruserkrankung, die ein häufiger Auslöser von Atemwegserkrankungen ist. Die Grippewellen treten hierzulande jährlich in den Wintermonaten auf, in tropischen Ländern hingegen das ganze Jahr über. [1] Der Virus-Typ B ist seltener, nimmt im Vergleich zur Influenza A einen leichteren Verlauf und führt meist bei Kindern und Jugendlichen zu Infektionen.

Nachfolgend wird darüber informiert, welche Vorgänge während der Inkubationszeit bei einer Infektion mit der Influenza B ablaufen und wie viel Zeit bis zum Ausbruch der Krankheit vergeht.

Die Influenza-Viren gehören der Familie der Orthomyxoviridae an. Ihnen werden die 3 Virus-Typen Influenza A, Influenza B und Influenza C zugeordnet. Die umhüllten Viren enthalten segmentierte RNA Einzelstränge von negativer Polarität. [2]

Die Influenza B ist im Gegensatz zum Typ A nur für den Menschen relevant.

Die Inkubationszeit beträgt im Durchschnitt 1-3 Tage [3] und wird als die Dauer bezeichnet, die vom Zeitpunkt der Infektion mit dem Virus bis zu dem Ausbruch der Krankheit vergeht.

Die Influenza ist hoch virulent (sehr krankmachend). Bereits eine geringe Dosis der Krankheitserreger kann eine Infektion einleiten. [4]

Die Viren gelangen auf die Schleimhaut (Mucosa) des Atmungstraktes (Apparatus respiratorius) über Mund und Nase, wo sie Epithelzellen (Zellen des Deckgewebes) infizieren. [5]

Während der Inkubationszeit, das heißt während der ersten 24-72 Stunden, werden von dem Infizierten noch keine Anzeichen für die Erkrankung wahrgenommen. Innerhalb dieser Zeit laufen die ersten Vermehrungszyklen (Replikationszyklen) der Viren ab.

parole chanson maudit viagra

Zentrale Rolle im Genom der Influenza-Viren spielen die Glykoproteine (Eiweiße mit Zuckergruppen) Hämagglutinin und Neuraminidase. Hämagglutinin dient dem Anheften der Viren an Rezeptoren der Wirtszellen, Neuraminidase spielt eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Freisetzung neuer Viren.

Hämagglutinin bindet an spezifische Rezeptoren der Epithelzellen und bewirkt so die Aufnahme des Virus in die Wirtszelle über Endocytose (Einstülpungsvorgang der Zellmembran, bei der ein Teil des Außenmediums in das Zellinnere aufgenommen wird). Hämagglutinin bewirkt weiterhin eine Verschmelzung der Virushülle mit der Zellmembran und das Viruscapsid (Virus-RNA mit Eiweißschutzhülle) wird in die Wirtszelle freigegeben (Uncoating). Dieser Vorgang ist bereits 30 Minuten nach dem Anbinden an die Zelle abgeschlossen. Im weiteren Prozess werden das virale Genom im Zellkern der Wirtszelle kopiert (repliziert) und neue Viruspartikel im Cytosol(flüssige Matrix der ausfüllenden Grundstruktur der Zelle) fertiggestellt. Diese gelangen wieder zur Zellmembran, welche die Viruspartikel umschließt und aus der Zelle transportiert (Exocytose). Die neu entstandenen Viren werden durch die Neuraminidase von den Zellen abgetrennt und können nun weitere Zellen infizieren. [6] Dieser Vorgang ist nach 6 Stunden abgeschlossen. [7]

Die Inkubationszeit ist im Wesentlichen von 2 Punkten abhängig:

  • Dosis der Viruspartikel: Je nach Menge der Viruspartikel kann die genannte Inkubationszeit variieren. Eine sehr hohe Dosis kann somit die Inkubationszeit verkürzen.
  • Verfassung des Infizierten: Der Gesundheitszustand des Betroffenen kann Einfluss auf die Inkubationszeit haben. Bei einem sehr effizienten Immunsystem mit entsprechenden Antikörpern kann der Ausbruch der Krankheit in dieser Zeit sogar noch abgewendet werden. In diesem Fall ist es möglich, dass die Infektion mit dem Virus gar nicht registriert wird.

Hypothyroidism can be diagnosed by a doctor with a TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) test and an evaluation of your symptoms. Symptoms of hypothyroidism may be general, such as tiredness and constipation, and can often be confused with other health conditions. Symptoms usually appear slowly, over several months or years. No one can predict exactly which symptoms a person will develop or how severe the symptoms will be. Some people have many symptoms by the time they are diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Others have few, if any, symptoms. Because the symptoms are so variable, it’s important to talk with your doctor about your symptoms and to have a TSH test.

Here are some common symptoms* to look out for:

Weight gain due to fluid retention

Increased sensitivity to cold

Brittle fingernails and hair

Dry, rough, pale skin

Muscle and joint pain

Heavy menstrual bleeding
or irregular periods

The primary role of iodine in the body is to serve as one of the ingredients in the syntheses of thyroid hormones.

The two major thyroid hormones are thyroxine or T4 and triiodothyronine or T3.

While T3 contains 3 iodine atoms, T4 contains 4 of them. Therefore, 65% of the molecular weight of T4 is due to iodine but 59% of the weight of T3 is iodine.

Even though iodine is most known as a precursor of thyroid hormones, most of the iodine in the body is actually outside the thyroid gland and the hormones released from it. 70% of the iodine ingested into the body can be found in the tissues of the mammary glands, salivary glands, thymus glands, walls of blood vessels, eyes, cervix and the mucosal surface of the mouth and gastrointestinal tract.

The role of iodine at these other sites are not fully known although the iodine found in the mammary glands is believed to be important to the growth of babies and fetuses.

Humans get iodine chiefly from diet. It can be obtained from plants grown in soils rich in the element. However, soils lose their iodine stores the longer they are farmed.

Seafood is a major dietary source of iodine. Of seafood, kelp is the richest in iodine and the high amount of kelp consumed by Japanese is responsible for the low rate of hypothyroidism in the country.

Besides plants and seafood, most people obtain iodine from iodized salts.

Iodized salts are fortified with iodine and they serve as the major source of this essential, trace element for most people.

The recommended daily dietary intake of iodine is 150 micrograms for adults. However, pregnant women require 220 micrograms and lactating women should get 290 micrograms per day. 90 – 130 micrograms per day is the amount of iodine recommended for children while infants need 110 – 130 micrograms.

The upper tolerable limit of daily iodine intake is 1,100 micrograms for adults.

The average adult actually only needs 70 micrograms per day to produce thyroid hormones. The rest of the daily dietary intake is required for the optimal functioning of the other tissues and organs where iodine is also found in the body.

Maintaining the right balance of iodine is important because too high and too low iodine levels can cause serious harm to the body.

When there is little iodine in the body, the thyroid reduces the number of thyroid hormones produced.

Therefore, iodine deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism. On the other hand, too much iodine may cause hyperthyroidism since the production of thyroid hormones is not slowed down even after optimal levels are attained.

Iodine toxicity can also result from taking too much of the trace mineral and it can be just as severe as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.

Elemental iodine is a poison and it can be lethal when given in large amounts. 2 – 3 grams of iodine is enough to kill an adult. Even when applied externally on the skin, elemental iodine is still toxic. It can cause extensive tissue damage if the exposure is prolonged.

Because iodine is an oxidizing agent, it can damage the skin when it comes in contact. If the contact is short, it may merely irritate and inflame the skin but extended contact can cause skin lesions.

Gaseous iodine is also an irritant. When exposed to iodine vapor, all mucosal surfaces including those of the eyes and respiratory tract will be irritated.

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a condition where blood clots develop in the bloodstream and bleeding also occurs. DIC can develop more often with acute promyelocytic leukemia, but also with other subtypes of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). Find out more about disseminated intravascular coagulation.

A rare, cancerous (malignant), green-coloured tumour that develops with myelogenous leukemia. It is formed by the buildup of abnormal blast cells (immature blood cells) that collect in soft tissue outside the bone marrow.

Chloromas develop most often in the bone, skin, lymph nodes, breast, ovary, meninges (membranes that cover and protect the brain or the spinal cord) and around the eye.

Also called extramedullary leukemia or granulocytic sarcoma.

Cold and flu season has begun, and with it the onslaught of sore throats, aches and coughs. Last week my 4 year old daughter complained bitterly of a sore throat, and no amount of consoling was going to solve it. I didn’t want to turn to a bottle of artificial color, flavor, sugar and other garbage to help her unless it was absolutely necessary. Instead, I pulled out the lemons, the honey and the ginger. And unlike some sore throat remedies, this one is delicious. In fact, I now have to learn to see through the “ooooh, sore throat, mommy” to see if she is actually sick or if she just wants a spoonful of this goodness.

Raw honey is antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and high in antioxidants. If possible buy raw honey from a local beekeeper who doesn’t sell all the honey the bees make and then feed them sugar-water through the winter.

Lemons are antibacterial, anti-viral, and contain immune-boosting vitamins and minerals. Choose organic to avoid pesticides.

Ginger is anti-inflammatory and helps soothe inflamed sinuses and throats. It also helps boost the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. Choose organic ginger to avoid pesticides.

Feel good about giving your children a spoonful of this remedy, or putting a tablespoon in some hot water for a hot drink. You are boosting their immune system and soothing aching little bodies with a healthy, all natural cold and flu remedy.

Making an early diagnosis is important to treatment and outcome. There are currently no screening tests for lymphomas and it is usually not evident in the blood.

Statistics provided by: Lymphoma Coalition 2014 Global Patient Survey (3,500 Respondents)

  • Painless swelling in a lymph node
  • Chills/temperature swings
  • Recurrent fevers and excessive sweating at night
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Persistent tiredness and lack of energy
  • Breathlessness and coughing
  • Persistent itch all over the body without an apparent cause or rash
  • General fatigue

The symptoms of lymphoma are commonly seen in other, less serious illnesses, such as influenza or other viral infection. These symptoms are often overlooked , but in cases of less serious illnesses they would not last very long. With lymphoma, these symptoms persist over time and cannot be explained by an infection or another disease.

The most common symptom is a painless swelling in a lymph node . The neck or armpits are common places noticed first, but the swelling can occur in other parts of the body including the groin (that may cause swelling in the legs or ankles) or the abdomen (that can cause cramping and bloating). Some patients with lymphoma notice no swelling at all while others may complain of night sweats, weight loss, chills, a lack of energy, or itching. There is usually no pain involved, especially when the lymphoma is in the early stage of development. Most people who have nonspecific complaints such as these will not have lymphoma. However, it is important that any person who has symptoms that persist see a doctor to confirm that no lymphoma or serious illness is present.

You may have found our site because you are concerned that you may have a parasitic infection. In this section, we will help you by telling you which parasite symptoms are most commonly associated with parasitic infections. Armed with a little knowledge, you will then be able to take the right actions to move you in a healthier, parasite-free direction.

The parasite symptoms that are associated with parasites and the infections they cause vary greatly and can indicate other causes. Some parasites can exist in the body for years and never produce a single symptom. Others will have symptoms so severe you would require immediate medical attention. It can be very hard to pinpoint an exact cause of some of the symptoms or even be misdiagnosed.

Chronic fatigue or extreme tiredness is a common symptom of a parasitic infection. The reason someone infected by a parasite may feel so tired is because the parasite living in the intestines will sap the nutrients out of the food he or she digests. The parasite will thrive, and its human host will be under nourished.

Iron deficiency, or anemia, is often caused by worm parasites in the intestines. This is a major contributor to feeling chronically fatigued. Some differences between chronic fatigue and just your run-of-the-mill tiredness are that chronic fatigue will not improve with rest, becomes worse with both mental and physical activity, and is associated with feeling weak and sore muscles.

Since many human parasites make their home in the digestive track, their hosts are likely to experience digestive related symptoms. Most of these are very unpleasant and can be embarrassing. They include belching, excessive flatulence or gas, vomiting, bloody stools, and diarrhea. Some may experience fecal incontinence or oily stools.

Richard Wenzel: Most of the time influenza is spread from person to person by large respiratory droplets. Sometimes, the virus contaminates the environment and hand contact with the environment and subsequent touching of the nose or eye can lead to infection. I also think that uncommonly this virus can be spread by the airborne route: tiny droplets that stay airborne and do not fall to the ground quickly like the large respiratory droplets.

Richard Wenzel: Thanks very much for the questions.

These are known as the classic "flu-like" symptoms and are not unlike the symptoms of other illnesses such as malaria. Indeed many people have mistaken the onset of malaria for a bout of flu and have not taken appropriate action with sometimes serious consequences.

  • Rest
  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco
  • Take medication to relieve the symptoms

It is passed from person to person by droplet transmission, usually by breathing in diphtheria bacteria after an infected person has coughed, sneezed or even laughed. It can also be spread by handling used tissues or by drinking from a glass used by an infected person.

In tropical countries the infection may occur as skin ulcers and is known as cutaneous diphtheria which presents as infected skin lesions which lack a characteristic appearance.

After two to six weeks, the effects of toxins produced by the bacteria become apparent with severe muscle weakness, mainly affecting the muscles of the head and neck. Inflammation of the heart muscle may cause heart failure. Myocarditis, polyneuritis, and airway obstruction are common complications of respiratory diphtheria; death occurs in 5%-10% of respiratory cases.

Transmission is usually by direct person to person contact. Avoid very close contact with infected people particularly kissing and sharing bottles or glasses. It spreads quickly amongst infected people in crowded places. Cutaneous lesions are also important in transmission.

Diphtheria remains endemic in developing countries and the countries of the former Soviet Union have reported an epidemic which began in 1990.

Treatment: is specialised and requires medical supervision in hospital where Diphtheria antitoxin is given as an intramuscular or intravenous injection as soon as possible. The infection is then treated with antibiotics, such as penicillin or erythromycin.

Prevention: There is a vaccine for diphtheria. Most people in the UK receive their first dose as a child in the form of a combined vaccine called DTP (diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis).
Immunisation: is very effective but protective immunity is not present longer than 10 years after the last vaccination, so it is important for adults at risk to get a booster of tetanus-diptheria (Td) vaccine every 10 years.

Legionnaires Disease

TB is much more common in some parts of the world than in the UK. The risk to travellers is limited since transmission of the disease usually requires prolonged close contact. Sometimes the disease can be overwhelming; producing meningitis and coma; this particularly dangerous form is usually found in children and those who have not previously been vaccinated or exposed to the disease. Recently, antibiotic-resistant strains of tuberculosis have appeared.

    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.

    Medikamente gegen Grippe

    Zur gezielten Behandlung der Grippe stehen antivirale – also gegen Viren wirkende – Stoffe zur Verfügung: Oseltamivir und Zanamivir hemmen die Neuraminidase, eines der Oberflächenmoleküle des Virus. Die Neuraminidase spielt unter anderem eine wichtige Rolle bei der Freisetzung der Viren von einer infizierten Zelle.

    Jährlich fällig: Die Grippeimpfung

    Es existieren wirksame Impfstoffe gegen die Grippe. Der Inhalt wird regelmäßig angepasst, damit er möglichst gut gegen die häufigsten aktuellen Virustypen der Saison schützt. Deshalb und weil die Wirksamkeit der Impfung nicht lange anhält, ist jährlich eine neue Impfung notwendig.

    Wegen des sich ständig verändernden Virus kann jedoch keine Impfung hundertprozentig schützen. Um Infektionen vorzubeugen ist es daher außerdem empfehlenswert, auf eine gute Händehygiene zu achten. Bei Erkältungs- und Grippeepidemien kann es sinnvoll sein, auf die Begrüßung per Handschlag zu verzichten, um einer möglichen Ansteckung vorzubeugen.

    Seasonal Flu — A contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza (flu) viruses occurring every year. It affects an average of 5 percent to 20 percent of the U.S. population by causing mild to severe illness, and in some instances can lead to death.

    Epidemic — The rapid spread of a disease that affects some or many people in a community or region at the same time.

    Pandemic — An outbreak of a disease that affects large numbers of people throughout the world and spreads rapidly.

    H1N1 Influenza (swine flu) — H1N1 influenza is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza viruses that cause regular outbreaks in pigs. People do not normally get H1N1 influenza, but human infections can and do happen. H1N1 influenza viruses have been reported to spread from person-to-person.

    Avian Influenza — Commonly known as bird flu, this strain of influenza virus is naturally occurring in birds. Wild birds can carry the virus and may not get sick from it; however, domestic birds may become infected by the virus and often die from it.

    Are you considered high risk for flu-related complications?

    You are at an increased risk if you are:

  • Age 50 or older
  • Pregnant
  • Living with a chronic medical condition
  • A child, age 6 months and older
  • Living with or caring for anyone at high risk

    On 14th April 2016 Dr Tom Frieden, the head of the CDC, confirmed that the Zika Virus does indeed cause Microcephaly and several other birth defects in babies. He stated that 'This study marks a turning point in the Zika outbreak. It is now clear that the virus causes microcephaly'. The Zika virus was previously beleived to have caused the birth defects seen in newborn babies, characterized by unusually small heads, and this has now been confirmed by the CDC.

    Kids and teens with mononucleosis (mono) can have flu-like symptoms (like a fever, muscle aches, tiredness, and a sore throat), which go away on their own after a few weeks of rest and plenty of fluids.

    Mono usually is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a very common virus that most kids are exposed to at some point while growing up. Infants and young kids infected with EBV typically have very mild symptoms or none at all. But teens and young adults who become infected often develop mono.

    Mono is spread through kissing, coughing, sneezing, or any contact with the saliva of someone who has been infected with the virus. (That's how mono got nicknamed "the kissing disease.") It also can spread by sharing a straw or an eating utensil. Researchers believe that mono may be spread sexually as well.

    People who have been infected with EBV will carry the virus for the rest of their lives — even if they never have any signs or symptoms of mono. Those who did have mono symptoms probably will not get sick or have symptoms again.

    Although EBV is the most common cause of mono, other viruses, such as cytomegalovirus (sy-toe-meh-guh-low-VY-rus), can cause a similar illness. Like EBV, cytomegalovirus stays in the body for life and may not cause any symptoms.

    Symptoms usually show up about 4 to 7 weeks after infection with the virus and can include:

    • being very tired
    • fever
    • sore throat with swollen tonsils that may have white patches
    • loss of appetite
    • swollen lymph nodes (commonly called glands, located in the neck, underarms, and groin)
    • headaches
    • sore muscles
    • weakness
    • larger-than-normal liver or spleen
    • skin rash
    • abdominal pain

    Mono symptoms usually go away within 2 to 4 weeks. In some teens, though, the tiredness and weakness can last for months.

    To make a diagnosis, the doctor may do a blood test and physical exam to check for things like swollen tonsils and an enlarged liver or spleen, which often is a sign of the infection.

    Doctors recommend that kids who get mono avoid sports for at least a month after symptoms are gone because the spleen usually is enlarged temporarily from the illness. An enlarged spleen can rupture easily — causing internal bleeding and abdominal pain — and require emergency surgery.

    So vigorous activities, contact sports, weightlifting, cheerleading, or even wrestling with siblings or friends should be avoided until the doctor says it's OK.

    Most kids who get mono recover completely with no problems. In rare cases, though, complications can happen. These can include problems with the liver or spleen, anemia, meningitis, trouble breathing, or inflammation of the heart.

    There is no vaccine to protect again the Epstein-Barr virus. But you can help protect your kids from mono by making sure that they avoid close contact with anyone who has it.

    Many people who have mono won't have symptoms, but they can still pass it to others. So kids should wash their hands well and often, and not share drinks or eating utensils with others, even people who seem healthy.

    Currently the only 100% successful treatment for milk allergies is total avoidance of milk proteins. Infants who develop milk allergy, usually outgrow the condition. However, if the infants are breast-fed, the lactating mothers are given an elimination diet. If symptoms are not relieved or if the infants are bottle-fed, milk substitute formulas are used to provide the infant with a complete source of nutrition. Milk substitutes include soy milk, rice milk, and hypoallergenic formulas based on hydrolysed protein or free amino acids. Please note soy milk is hyperallergenic i.e. it is easy for the immune system to think it is harmful.

    Enzyme Therapy:
    As explained above food allergy is triggered by proteins and the immune system mistakenly thinks they are harmful proteins. Proteins are broken down by enzymes when digested, and lack of proper breakdown may be the cause for the proteins to become allergens. Hence, as explained in Better Nutrition Journal and several medical papers enzyme therapy can help eliminate or minimise symptoms. Read Enzymes to the Rescue. Commercially available enzymes that break down proteins are available on the market and a very effective product is availably in the 'products' section here. Prolactazyme Forte does a brilliant job in most cases and can be used by children and adults alike.

    FOOD POISONING STORIES

    Years ago, my husband and I ate at a “hole in the wall” Mexican restaurant. He thought his meal tasted great. Mine was pretty good too. While we were waiting for the check, he started to feel sick. It came on so fast. He got up to go look for the bathroom and immediately started vomiting. He left a trail of vomit all the way to the bathroom (which unfortunately was the women’s bathroom, poor guy). Anyway, when he finished vomiting he felt fine. Two hours later, he had a big bowl of ice cream with chocolate sauce. I suspect that this type of food poisoning was from the toxins produced either by Staphylococcus aureus or Bacillus cereus since it came on so suddenly and was over so quickly. No one else caught it from him which further supports a diagnosis of food poisoning.

    Another example of obvious non-contagious food poisoning happened to my sister and her coworker recently. They went to happy hour (at 5pm) at a local restaurant and shared an appetizer of fried calamari with a dipping sauce. At 10pm, they were both vomiting. Since they don't live together and didn't eat anything else that was the same that day, I am very certain that they got food poisoning from that shared appetizer. The dipping sauce was probably sitting out barely warm under a heat lamp all afternoon growing toxin producing bacteria. No one else caught it from them so that further suggests that it was food poisoning.

    Another example of non-contagious food poisoning recently happened to a friend and her husband after having dinner at a restaurant. They had different meals but they both got the same house salad (lettuce, eggs, tomato, cheese, croutons, cucumbers, and creamy Italian dressing). My friend went to bed at 9:30pm and thought her stomach felt odd but she fell asleep anyway. She woke up at 10:15pm and had to run to the toilet to vomit. She had 1 violent episode of vomiting and then felt okay. She slept the rest of the night. She was perfectly fine the next day. This seems like a case of non-contagious food poisoning because it came on so quickly after the meal and was over quickly. Although it is possible to vomit just 1 time from a stomach flu virus, they usually don't end that quickly. Her husband had a different story. He had a stomachache after dinner just like she did. However, he did not vomit. He had a stomachache for the next 2 days and then had diarrhea for the following 3 days. He wasn't right for a week. If I was just looking at his symptoms, I'd say that he probably has something contagious. However, since his wife most definitely has the non-contagious form, and they both felt sick at the same time, I would blame it on a bad salad. This example shows us that even the same bad food can affect people differently. I know throwing up is scary but when you eat something bad, it is probably the fastest way to feel better. My friend's husband didn't throw up and kept the bad stuff in. He was sick all week.
