Getting the flu means missing work, school, and special events like the big game, a wedding, spring break or a special birthday party. It puts life on hold. But even worse, for people at higher risk for complications it can be very serious, even life threatening. Stay healthy and help keep the people closest to you healthy too by getting a seasonal flu vaccine. Even if the vaccine isn’t a perfect match with the circulating flu viruses, it’s still the best way to prevent getting the flu. Be sure to wash your hands frequently. If you do get sick, remember to cough into your arm or elbow, and stay home so you don’t spread the illness to others.

What is influenza?
Influenza is commonly referred to as the “flu”. It is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat and lungs. The flu can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.

What are the symptoms of flu?
Symptoms of flu may include fever (though not everyone with flu will have a fever), cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, fatigue (tiredness), chills, and sometimes diarrhea and vomiting. Symptoms usually appear 1 to 3 days after exposure. Although most people are ill for less than a week, some people have complications and may need to be hospitalized.

Who gets influenza?
Influenza can infect persons of all ages. The flu can be especially serious for babies, children, pregnant women, adults 65 years and older, people with certain long-term medical conditions (e.g., lung disease, heart disease, cancer, or diabetes), or those with weak immune systems. However, even healthy people can get the flu and should protect themselves by getting the flu vaccine every year.

How is it spread?
The flu virus spreads easily in discharges from the nose and throat of an infected person. It is often spread by coughing, sneezing or talking. A person might also get the flu by touching a surface or object that has the flu virus on it, and then touching his or her own mouth, eyes or nose.

When and for how long is a person able to spread the disease?
Influenza can spread from one person to another beginning one day before symptoms start up to five to seven days after becoming sick. This means that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. If you have the flu, make sure you stay at home and away from school, work, or other activities until you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of a medicine to reduce your fever).

Who should be vaccinated against influenza?
The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine every year. Everyone age 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine. It’s especially important that certain people get vaccinated either because they are at high risk of having serious flu-related complications or because they live with or care for people at high risk for developing flu-related complications.
The influenza vaccine is updated every year to provide protection from the flu viruses that are likely to be circulating and causing disease. Also, your body’s level of immunity from a vaccine received last flu season is expected to have declined. Getting vaccinated every year before influenza activity begins in your community can help protect you during the flu season. The best time to get vaccinated is as soon as the vaccine is available. However, it’s never too late to get vaccinated.

Flu vaccines protect against multiple strains of influenza. Even if the vaccine is not a “perfect” match to all the circulating flu strains, the vaccine can still offer some protection, and may help to prevent complications or severe illness if flu illness does occur.

Infants younger than 6 months are too young to get a flu vaccine, but they are at higher risk for complications, hospitalization and death from the flu. Therefore, it is especially important that family members and other people who care for young infants get vaccinated to help ensure that they don’t spread the infection to them.

There are some people who should not get a flu vaccine, for instance, people who have had a severe reaction to a flu vaccine or any of its components in the past. For more information about who should and who should not get vaccinated, visit: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/whoshouldvax.htm.

Quand tu parles de colloquialisme, tu fais référence à “décr&%*ssé” j’imagine? Pourtant j’utilise ce terme à tous les jours…
Merci pour ton commentaire!

J’adore tes infographiques… les facultés de sciences universitaires devraient les utiliser, ainsi que tous les bureaux de médecin!!
Suggestion pour faire suite à cette présentation: ça serait vraiment bien si tu pouvais expliquer pourquoi on ne peut pas avoir la grippe avec le vaccin anti-grippal…
Merci de nous faire rire ainsi, continues!

Wow, merci beaucoup Julie. Les infographiques, c’est ce que j’aime le plus créer. Je joins donc l’utile à l’agréable
J’adore ton idée concernant le vaccin anti-grippal! J’ai récemment eu une suggestion pour les vaccins de voyage également. J’en prends bonne note pour une prochaine chronique!

Bravo! L’arbre décisionnel est vraiment très drôle (je l’envoie à mes collègues). On en redemande!

Merci beaucoup Alain! Demandez et vous recevrez. 😉

Si je puis me permettre, je trouve que ♫♪♫ douleurs musculaires intenses ♪♫♪ est une douce métaphore…
Tu aurais dû écrire que la grippe donne mal à des endroits de ton corps que tu savais même pas qu’ils existaient. Et qu’on continue à avoir mal longtemps. Et qu’on est fatigué pendant un mois, en plus (je l’ai eu pour la première fois à 30 ans et je me suis même pas mise en arrêt de travail… mais bon, je suis phobique sociale et consulter le médecin, remplir le formulaire de mise en arrêt, mettre mon employeur dans la mouise pour chercher une collègue pour me remplacer, c’était trop pour moi… on est névrosé ou on l’est pas…).

Ayant eu la grippe une seule fois dans ma vie personnellement, je suis 100% d’accord avec toi! Chaque muscle de mon corps était douloureux. Rien à voir avec une douleur musculaire après un effort physique. Vraiment bizarre et plutôt désagréable.

Bravo pour votre site en général. A propos du rhume, il manque la réponse à la question essentielle: est ce que prendre froid donne le rhume? Ou sortir avec les cheveux mouillés? Ou attraper un chaud et froid en passant du métro à dehors? Ou pire, en marchant pieds nus sur un carrelage froid (il parait que c’est la mort assurée…)

Tu obtiendras la réponse à ces questions légendaires en répondant au quiz suivant sur les remèdes de grand-mère!

J’arrive en retard, mais je dois commenter. J’en étais à lire TOUS les billets pour me divertir et m’instruire. Mais la maudite grippe… Je l’ai eue une fois y’a de ça un an et demi. Tsé, quand tu te TRAÎNES pour aller chez vous, que tu penses perdre connaissance dans le métro, que t’as mal au point de te demander si t’as pas confondu le 2 de 27 ans avec un 8 comme dans 87 ans. ÇA. Celle qui fait que t’es fatigué pendant un mois, celle qui fait que tu te réveilles la nuit en ayant peur d’étouffer, celle qui fait que tu fais paniquer ta soeur infirmière qui te menace de te rentrer à l’hôpital si tes 0897348725634324 puffs de Ventolin fonctionnent pas.

Cré moé, si t’as eu la grippe une fois, tu sais c’est quoi. Tu ne confonds plus JAMAIS avec un p’tit rhume.

Pis oui, décrissé, c’est le mot (j’aime pas me censurer, j’aime trop mes jurons pour ça).

C’est bien la grippe en effet. J’ajouterais bien quelque chose mais tu as parfaitement résumé tous les symptômes classiques!

Je suis abonné alors, j’ai dû l’avoir 3 fois de sûr et peut-être une quatrième, mais j’ai des circonstances atténuantes ayant été imunodéprimé. Généralement je tape entre 40° et 41° et c’est un peu le mode survie pendant trois/quatre jours. Le seuil de la douleur dépend bien évidemment des individus mais je trouve les douleurs musculaires plus (très) dérangeantes (on se sent comme du flanc à 70°) qu’insupportables.
Sur le contenu de l’article, le graphique est plutôt bien fichu, humoristique, surtout la partie des AB!

Merci beaucoup Philippe! Je n’ose même pas imaginer ce que peut être une grippe avec un système immunitaire compromis…

Dis-moi est-ce que l’echynacée peut aider à fortifier notre système immunitaire afin d’aider le corps à mieux se prémunir contre une grippe?

Chickens infected with bird flu may have decreased egg production, and may lay soft-shelled or misshapen eggs, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Chickens with avian influenza may exhibit purple discolouration of the wattles (fleshy growths that hang from the throat), combs (growth on top of the head) or legs, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The head, eyelids, comb, wattles and hocks may also begin to swell. Pinpoint haemorrhages can appear, especially on the feet and shanks.

Lack of energy is a common symptom of bird flu, as well as loss of appetite and decreased coordination. Some birds with a mild strain of avian influenza may simply have ruffled feathers.

Highly lethal forms of avian influenza can cause sudden death in poultry. Chickens, especially young birds, may succumb to the illness so quickly that no symptoms are obvious before death, according to the University of Florida. According to WHO, the lethal H5N1 strain of avian influenza has a mortality rate that can reach 100 per cent within 48 hours.

Réponse à l’éternelle question: Ai-je le rhume ou la grippe?

Il n’y a pas grand chose qui m’irrite sérieusement… sauf quand les termes « grippe » et « rhume » sont utilisés de façon interchangeable.

Si tu as déjà eu la grippe (i.e. l’influenza), tu es au courant que c’est une infection complètement différente et vraiment plus sévère. Certaines personnes (dont moi-même) ne se souviennent même pas d’avoir déjà eu la grippe dans leur vie.

Quant au rhume, on l’a tous 2-3 fois par année.

Voici les principales ressemblances et différences entre ces deux problèmes de santé et un organigramme (vraiment très peu utile) pour les distinguer.

BONUS: à la demande générale, les versions PDF en format facilement imprimable (8.5 x 11) sont fournies plus bas.

NOTE QUE JE ME DOIS D’AJOUTER (MÊME SI JE LA JUGE INUTILE): Vous comprendrez qu’il ne s’agit pas là d’outils diagnostics sérieux… La grippe (influenza) est une condition grave et qui peut même être mortelle. Dans tous les cas, consulter votre médecin et/ou votre pharmacien pour évaluer vos symptômes.

I have now been using progesterone cream for two months, and I'm already experiencing a difference. I had only one migraine this month instead of many, no cramps, less spotting, and a lighter flow. I highly recommend to have your hormones checked if any of these symptoms apply to you!

26) I have been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks for years and have been treated with meds like prozac and paxil off and on. Anxiety is still a problem, especially around my period and ovulation. I also have been diagnosed with infertility due to endometriosis. I recently had the saliva tests done and my progesterone levels were very low. I now am on 50mg of bioidentical progesterone. This is my first month and my anxiety has gotten worse!

I am just wondering if after a few months on the progesterone will things get better? I am really worried and stressed every day if I am going to wake up with anxiety. I feel like it has taken over my life.

25) I was just tested. My progesterone level was.5! I have had anxiety issues for months. I also have severe insomnia. I felt nonhuman. I am angry all the time.

My poor husband has been fantastic, but I feel miserable. I am on zoloft, xanax and restoril until my hormone replacement arrives this week. I am only 42 years old. I have had this issue for years. I am so tired of being told I am too young for this. Why aren't more doctors and people talking about this?

24) I would suggest as already mentioned, to seek out a doctor who does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. It is all natural and much better for our bodies. This really makes a difference for all of those mentioned side effects of low progesterone. I am on 50mg for the very first time, so am already feeling a little better, however, will be able to tell after a few more months. Thanks

23) all of these women have some of the same symptoms I had and several more. Severe headaches at times, amenorrhea, overwhelming fatigue, thinning of my skin, horrible panic attacks, low back pain, urinating frequently, malaise, respiratory infections that recurred over and over for no reason.

I researched it extensively, as no doctor was helping at all. I started on progesterone cream, natural progesterone only. Large dosing initially to combat the dominance of the estrogen. I used 200mg daily to start and within days the symptoms subsided. Now on daily lower doses. everyone is different but it was a miracle for me.

22) I just found out my progesterone level is low after TTC for 14 mos. I had to push doc for a test. It is a 5.4, what is a normal level? I too, notice my hair has been thinning and I have complained to the doc several times about heavy, clotty periods.

21) Waited to raise my son, finish my education and finally for my second - now good marriage - and bam! Now I am told I am in menopause!

Started my own research and using progesterone capsules and cream - trying to have this planned baby. No, traditional male docs just aren't following through here. You've got to do your own legwork and pray!

Whether wanting to deal with the menopause or try to reverse the bioclock, I recommend the hormone cream at least. Good luck out there!

20) I get severe headaches, body chills, severe cramping, fatigue and heavy bleeding before my period starts and during as well. My gyno tested and said that my progesterone is low, but the pills are not working. I had a miscarriage because of this hormone issue.

19) I have been on natural progesterone that is made specifically for me at a compounding pharmacy for the last five years. I was diagnosed through saliva testing, which is more specific than blood.

I had the symptoms mentioned by others. Severe bad moods, period slightly erratic, severe headaches caused by both migraines and at other times by tension, exhaustion, no libido, and hair falling out.

I am looking for comments from people who have successfully quit and the noticeable positive differences they have experienced. Like, they no longer have anxiety, depression, brain fog and etc., All I can find are the horrible withdrawal symptoms that I praying not to experience. I am wondering if those things go away or if the damage is done? I started drinking diet drinks when I was about 25 and never had any anxiety issues. At 26 or 27, I developed issues with anxiety and I am thinking this could be why and I am hoping the end result will be no more anxiety. Are their success stories anywhere?

Yes…I quit diet coke almost 3 months ago. I feel better but it took awhile. The headaches and nausea were terrible for a few days and gradually everything got better. I’m less tired most notably. It seems like my memory is better. I absolutely am saving a ton of money. Hang in there. It gets better.

Hi Leanne,
Yes, I quit back in September and after going through the withdrawal headaches, my issue with chronic migraines and headaches is GONE. I think the aspartame in the Crystal Light I was drinking daily was a huge factor. I also have to say that just prior to letting go of aspartame, I also went gluten-free. So that probably contributed, as well. But I think I remember that my headaches went away after giving up the aspartame.

I have struggled with some of those other things you are mentioning – brain fog, depression, anxiety, etc. I don’t know how much the aspartame contributed to these issues, though I am convinced it didn’t help. But I also have an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and the more I learn about it, the more I am understanding that food sensitivities of all sorts can (and usually do) contribute to these types of symptoms. So one suggestion if you don’t feel top-notch after going through your aspartame detox is to clean up some other areas of your diet from common triggers such as gluten, soy and refined sugars. The Paleo diet is actually a great place to start. You also might consider getting your thyroid levels checked. The thyroid plays a HUGE role in the body and literally affects the function of every single cell, so if it’s not producing enough hormone, you are going to feel it and what you are describing are very common symptoms. If you decide to get it checked, INSIST that your doctor check TSH, Free T3, Free T4 and thyroid antibodies. Many (most) docs will only rely on the TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) but that is not a true picture. The Free T3 and Free T4 show how much active thyroid hormone is truly in your system. And the presence of antibodies would mean that you have Hashimoto’s, which is the autoimmune disease that attacks your thyroid. Very treatable with the right medication, diet and lifestyle. If any of this rings true for you, or you are at least curious, then do some online research.

Thanks to both of you. Today, is a week without any diet drinks or aspartame and I feel very blessed because I feel fine. I think it was the second day, I had a headache all day long, but I was also having sinus issues, so it’s hard to say which was causing it. My 17 year old son quit drinking them also (by default because I haven’t bought them) and he is having headaches, dizziness and some blurred vision.

People have suggested that I get my thyroid checked because my hair has been thinning, also. However, I read that aspartame can cause thinning hair, mostly in the temple area which is where mine is and in six weeks, if aspartame is the cause their will be a noticeable difference. But, their is a family history of thyroid issues. My moms is underactive and my grandfather on my dads side was overactive. So, maybe mine will balance out 🙂 However, my mother drinks her share of diet drinks also, so I encouraged her to quit and she did a couple of days after me because she has other symptoms.

Thank you for your response and all the info!

I never had problems with anxiety until I started drinking diet soda in 2001, it has only been 4 days off for me but so far I am feeling a lot less anxious and my blood pressure has come down. My appointment with my doctor two weeks ago my blood pressure was 134/84, today it was 117/74.

I have been on a diet coke binge for years. Being type 2 diabetic was one reason to drink them. I have been drinking 2 – 2 liters a day for about 5 years. I admit I’ve been hooked. I have a horrible memory and deal with depression. A couple a days ago I made my mind up to quit. I started having flu like symptoms, headaches, and body aches. I knew then it was the aspartame. My mind has been foggy, cloudy. Yesterday I started to feel worse so my husband and I came across your article looking for answers. He finally went and got me a 2 liter and about and I glass later I began to feel better. I’m really trying to kick this horrible addiction! Advice? Should I just stop cold turkey or began to quit them slowly? I now know how a crack addict feels! It’s horrible! Please tell me how to get off these diet cokes! Sincerely, Val Virden

Hi Val,
I had the same symptoms about 3 months ago now. It took me 3 full weeks of flu like symptoms….might even say worse. They will subside. Find what tastes good and go with that. For me it was orange juice watered down a bit. I think it mimicked the acid of the carbonated soda. I don’t think there’s any way around it. Just go through it and it will be worth it in the end. The withdrawal was worse than any symptoms I ever had from drinking the soda. It can be done…you can do it. Patty

Pure Stevia only is natural and perfectly healthy. The problem the big companies have is that they want to patent everything and so they combine it with other things that are not healthy to control the market under their brand name. Like the person above said Truvia is not Stevia. Just check the label and be sure of what you’re buying and you’ll be fine.

Thanks for the post. I am working on an article on this subject. I hate to see people going from Aspartame Poison to Truvia Poison. The Omica Stevia on this page is the only way I would go. It is such a great product made by a great company. Trusting companies like Cargill and Coca-Cola (or PepsiCo for that matter) seems foolish given the research available.

I have been an gum chewer for years, Trident bubble gum. Some days I would chew 3 value packs, and some days chew more. I knew it had aspartame in it, but did not realize until I checked it on the internet. I threw out all my gum, and this is the first day that I have not chewed gum in years. I do have a headache. Noticed not as hungry. I am hoping my body will recover from all of this poison I have been ingesting all these years. The FDA is not doing its job. You have to trust your own body, and do what is right.

I am on my 14th day of no aspartame. I have so many of the same symptom’s of aches and pains. I noticed headaches and fatigue since stopping. Not only drinking diet soft drinks but the chewing gum I have bought for years also contains aspartame. I was shopping for a new gum yesterday and I could not find one that did not list aspartame as part of their ingredients. Has anyone found a gum that is safe to chew?
Thanks,
Patty.

How do health care professionals diagnose the flu (influenza)?

The flu is presumptively diagnosed clinically by the patient's history of association with people known to have the disease and their symptoms listed above. Usually, a quick test (for example, nasopharyngeal swab sample) is done to see if the patient is infected with influenza A or B virus. Most of the tests can distinguish between A and B types. The test can be negative (no flu infection) or positive for types A or B. If it is positive for type A, the person could have a conventional flu strain or a potentially more aggressive strain such as H1N1. Most of the rapid tests are based on PCR technology that identifies the genetic material of the virus. Some rapid influenza diagnostic tests (RIDTs) can screen for influenza in about 10-30 minutes.

Swine flu (H1N1) and other influenza strains like bird flu or H3N2 are definitively diagnosed by identifying the particular surface proteins or genetic material associated with the virus strain. In general, this testing is done in a specialized laboratory. However, doctors' offices are able to send specimens to specialized laboratories if necessary.

Flu is easily spread from person to person both directly and indirectly. The influenza virus can spread to other people in droplets contaminated with the virus. Produced by coughing, sneezing, or even talking, these droplets land near or in the mouth or the nose of uninfected people, and the disease may spread to them. The disease can spread indirectly to others if contaminated droplets land on utensils, dishes, clothing, or almost any surface and then are touched by uninfected people. If the infected person touches their nose or mouth, for example, they transfer or spread the disease to themselves or others.

Quick Guide 10 Foods to Eat When You Have the Flu in Pictures

Most of the illness and death caused by influenza can be prevented by annual influenza vaccination. The CDC's current Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) issued recommendations for everyone 6 months of age and older, who do not have any contraindications to vaccination, to receive a flu vaccine each year.

Flu vaccine (influenza vaccine made from inactivated and sometimes attenuated [noninfective] virus or virus components) is specifically recommended for those who are at high risk for developing serious complications as a result of influenza infection.

A new vaccine type, Fluzone Intradermal, was approved by the FDA in 2011 (for adults 18-64 years of age). This injection goes only into the intradermal area of the skin, not into the muscle (IM) like most conventional flu shots, and uses a much smaller needle than the conventional shots. This killed viral preparation is supposed to be about as effective as the IM shot but claims to produce less pain and fewer side effects (see section below).

Other simple hygiene methods can reduce or prevent some individuals from getting the flu. For example, avoiding kissing, handshakes, and sharing drinks or food with infected people and avoiding touching surfaces like sinks and other items handled by individuals with the flu are good preventive measures. Individuals with the flu should avoid coughing or sneezing on uninfected people; quick hugs are probably okay as long as there is no contact with mucosal surfaces and/or droplets that may contain the virus.

Are there any nasal spray vaccine or flu shot side effects in adults or in children?

Although annual influenza (injectable) vaccination has long been recommended for people in the high-risk groups, many still do not receive the vaccine, often because of their concern about side effects. They mistakenly perceive influenza as merely a nuisance and believe that the vaccine causes unpleasant side effects or that it may even cause the flu. The truth is that influenza vaccine causes no side effects in most people. In the past, patients with egg allergy had restrictions on getting the vaccine. However, extensive research has indicated that there is not enough egg protein in the vaccine to trigger an immune response, and all the recommendations about allergies to eggs has been dropped for the 2017-2018 flu season by several organizations that regulate vaccines. Also, the vaccine is not recommended while individuals have active infections or active diseases of the nervous system. Less than one-third of those who receive the vaccine have some soreness at the vaccination site, and about 5%-10% experience mild side effects, such as headache, low-grade fever, or muscle cramps, for about a day after vaccination; some may develop swollen lymph nodes. These side effects are most likely to occur in children who have not been exposed to the influenza virus in the past. The intradermal shots reportedly have similar side effects as the IM shot but are less intense and may not last as long as the IM shot.

Nevertheless, some older people remember earlier influenza vaccines that did, in fact, produce more unpleasant side effects. Vaccines produced from the 1940s to the mid-1960s were not as highly purified as modern influenza vaccines, and it was these impurities that caused most of the side effects. Since the side effects associated with these early vaccines, such as fever, headache, muscle aches, and/or fatigue and malaise, were similar to some of the symptoms of influenza, people believed that the vaccine had caused them to get the flu. However, injectable influenza vaccine produced in the United States has never been capable of causing influenza because it consists of killed virus.

    Its anti-bacterial effect makes it a good herb for treating many viral and bacterial infections. Echinacea is also an excellent blood cleanser, it helps to sweep dead cells and other debris through the channels of the lymphatic system. And dispatches white blood cells to fight the infection.

    The best test to determine if you are taking a good, high strength echinacea is the tongue test. After you have taken the tincture, the back of your tongue should feel numb or tingly. This feeling will soon pass, but you know you are using a good quality product. So when you feel the cold coming on - reach for the echinacea tincture. It is important to try to take echinacea before the full onset of a cold or flu to give the best chance of a swift recovery.

    No treatment of colds would be complete without Garlic and Ginger.

    Garlic has a distinctive taste and smell and it was very highly thought of by the ancient Egyptians, who ensured that the slaves building the Great Pyramids at Cheops were given a daily supply.

    The Romans also acknowledged garlic's strengthening powers and fed it to their soldiers before battle. Garlic has anti-bacterial properties that help the immune system to fight infection, it is an excellent boost to the immune system.

    The reason for this is garlic contains several helpful compounds, including allicin, one of the plant kingdom's most potent antibiotics. Garlic combines well with echinacea and together make a strong fighting force against infections.

    Onion is a close relative of Garlic and has similar properties, containing similar antiviral chemicals. Use onions and leeks in your cooking when you have a cold or are around people who do.

    Ginger is another of natures' antiviral herbs. It contains nearly a dozen antiviral compounds. Ginger is pain relieving, antiseptic and antioxidant. It is valuable for preventing and treating colds, sore throats and inflammation of mucus membranes.

    Ginger reduces pain and fever and has a mild sedative effect that will encourage rest. And it is tasty! (with no lingering odours!) Drink a tea, or soak fresh ginger in hot water, take as a tincture and include it in your food. Ginger is also delicious in a fruit smoothy (a mix of soft chilled fruits put in a blender).

    A medically supervised opiate withdrawal in a controlled environment can make the withdrawal much safer and more comfortable. It also provides a much a higher chance of success. In the past, opiate-dependent patients had no choice but to undergo conventional detoxification procedures in nonmedical facilities such as a drug rehab; It caused them to suffer through an unnecessary debilitating and sometimes even dangerous withdrawal syndrome.

    Natural opiates are alkaloids found in the opium poppy plant, and examples are morphine, codeine, and thebaine. Semi-synthetic opioids are created from natural opiates and include oxycodone, hydrocodone, and hydromorphone. Fully synthetic opioids include fentanyl, methadone, and tramadol.

    People who use opiates for the medical condition can also become physically dependent and require a medical opiate detox. One can take these medications safely over a relatively short period. However, most people become dependent when long-term therapy is needed. This is what makes pain management so tricky. Opiates are prized for their ability to defeat pain. Unfortunately, tolerance, dependence, and addiction can set in, even when the drugs are used correctly. Once this happens, the body needs more of the drug to experience the same effect. This increases the risk of a drug overdose.

    Drug overdose is the leading cause of death in the United States. The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) reports that 100 people die of a drug overdose daily, and 46 people are due to prescription opioid overdose.

    Many opioid withdrawal treatment programs, often rely on “replacement” or “substitution” medications such as methadone, Suboxone ( Buprenorphine) or Subutex. These medications are also opioids and may prolong the length of the opiate addiction. Eventually, people dependent on these drugs will require detoxification. For some, Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) might be safer than street drugs; for others, being completely opioid-free is the best option. Choosing the appropriate medical detox or the best rapid detox center can dictate the quality and efficiency of the opiate withdrawal treatment.

    The Waismann Method ® of rapid detoxification has demonstrated tremendous success in getting patients comfortably and safely through opiate withdrawal. Recognized as the best opiate treatment center in the world, by offering exceptional medical care and individualized assessment.

    The best test to determine if you are taking a good, high strength echinacea is the tongue test. After you have taken the tincture, the back of your tongue should feel numb or tingly. This feeling will soon pass, but you know you are using a good quality product. So when you feel the cold coming on - reach for the echinacea tincture. It is important to try to take echinacea before the full onset of a cold or flu to give the best chance of a swift recovery.

    No treatment of colds would be complete without Garlic and Ginger.

    Garlic has a distinctive taste and smell and it was very highly thought of by the ancient Egyptians, who ensured that the slaves building the Great Pyramids at Cheops were given a daily supply.

    The Romans also acknowledged garlic's strengthening powers and fed it to their soldiers before battle. Garlic has anti-bacterial properties that help the immune system to fight infection, it is an excellent boost to the immune system.

    The reason for this is garlic contains several helpful compounds, including allicin, one of the plant kingdom's most potent antibiotics. Garlic combines well with echinacea and together make a strong fighting force against infections.

    (Virus de la grippe H1N1, Grippe A (H1N1), Grippe porcine humaine)

    La grippe H1N1 est une affection contagieuse des voies respiratoires qui provoque des symptômes de la grippe saisonnière.

    Les noms de « grippe porcine » ou « influenza porcine » ont été utilisés initialement pour désigner cette affection car, selon les analyses de laboratoire, cette souche de virus grippal était composée de gènes apparentés à ceux du virus causant la grippe chez les porcs. Tout comme les êtres humains, les porcs peuvent contracter la grippe. Cependant, nous savons maintenant que le virus grippal H1N1 est composé de gènes issus de différents virus grippaux qui circulent parmi les espèces porcines, aviaires et humaine. Cette souche était la cause de grippe la plus commune en 2009, quand elle a causé la maladie dans le monde entier (pandémie).

    La grippe H1N1 est causée par un virus de l'influenza A. Les lettres H et N du nom du sous-type correspondent aux protéines qui se trouvent sur la surface du virus; on les utilise pour distinguer les différents sous-types de l'influenza A.

    Les gènes des virus de l'influenza se transforment constamment. On appelle ce processus une mutation. Lorsqu'un virus grippal porcin est détecté parmi les humains, on dit que le virus a franchi la barrière des espèces. Ceci signifie que le virus a muté de manière à pouvoir causer l'infection parmi les humains. Puisque les humains ne possèdent pas la protection ou l'immunité naturelle contre le virus, ils sont plus susceptibles de le contracter. Le virus grippal H1N1 est composé de gènes issus de différents virus grippaux qui circulent parmi les espèces porcines, aviaires et humaine.

    Le virus grippal H1N1 est contagieux. Une fois transmis de personne à personne, le virus se propage rapidement selon les mêmes voies que la grippe saisonnière, croit-on. La période de contagion va de 24 heures avant l'apparition des symptômes jusqu'à 7 jours ou plus après que la grippe se soit déclarée.

    L'influenza se propage de personne à personne lorsque le virus entre dans le corps par les yeux, le nez ou la bouche. La toux et les éternuements répandent les germes dans l'air, lesquels peuvent être respirés par les autres personnes. Le virus peut également demeurer sur des surfaces solides comme les poignées de porte, les touches des guichets automatiques de banque et les comptoirs. Une personne qui touche à l'une de ces surfaces avec ses mains et qui touche par la suite ses yeux, sa bouche ou son nez peut contracter le virus. En général, l'influenza n'est pas transmis par l'ingestion de nourriture ou d'eau.
