H1N1 Wide Spread

January 20, 2014

Sick Woman OutsideMaybe it’s the cold snap, maybe it’s just bad luck, but the vast majority of the US is fighting against flu transmission right now, despite early promises of a mild flu season.

The very young and very old are most at risk, but plenty of those in-between have had to call in sick at some point over the last few weeks.

Fight Flu Transmission

-The CDC is reminding everyone to cough into their elbows and encouraging frequent hand washing.

-Set humidifiers up at home and at the office. Humidity lowers flu transmission. You can keep humidifiers cleaner by adding a dash of colloidal silver when you refill and by following routine care instructions.

-Keep up the hard work until April. Hopefully the groundhog won’t see his shadow, but flu season typically lasts into early spring.

Be Proactive About Your Health

-Stay home and rest at the first sign of illness. You’ll decrease the severity and duration by supporting your immune system, and you’ll help fight flu transmission.

-Drink plenty of fluids and eat well. Make sure you’re getting enough Vitamin D, sleep, and stress free time to keep your immune system at its strongest. Add colloidal silver to your daily routine for extra support.

And Remember…

H1N1 is in this year’s flu shot, which is still available (but only has about 60% efficacy rate).

You can get the flu more than once, so fighting flu transmission will pay off.

How’s the flu where you’re at?
