The Flu – Know Your Enemy

With cold and flu season officially in full swing (1st week of October) I thought today would be the perfect time to discuss some very important facts about this highly contagious, sometimes fatal virus.
Because knowledge is power and armed with the right information – we should have no problems getting through another season unscathed.

The flu or influenza is a highly contagious infection of the upper respiratory system caused by a number of flu viruses. These viruses enter your body through your mucous membranes in the ears, nose or mouth.

And once inside, the virus can settle in your ear, nose, throat and lungs causing a number of violent symptoms. These symptoms can include everything from congestion, pain, coughing, and fever…even death!

In 1918 the Spanish Flu epidemic ran roughshod across the globe killing almost 20 million people world wide! It’s still the mile stone by which all pandemics are measured, even today.

And if you believe media hype, we could be in store for yet another – this time in the form of a mutated strain of bird flu. And even though human infection is still quite rare – the mortality rate is dangerously high.

Tired of scoping out the bathrooms everywhere you go for that inevitable sprint to pee?

If that scenario sounds familiar to you then take a look at the enclosed special report – it highlights a handful of VITAL nutrients that are guaranteed to strengthen your bladder and protect you against future bladder related health risks. So you can take back control of your life again.

Go here to read the full report:


So take 2 minutes and read up on these 7 “must know” flu facts — and you’ll see exactly why you need to take precautions now and exactly which precautions you should be taking to safeguard your health from these potentially fatal, yet avoidable viruses…

1) Sick Days:

About 10% to 20% of the U.S. population gets the flu every year. And more than 200,000 of those infected have to receive medical attention for their symptoms. The flu can last for up to a week sometimes longer and that can take a serious bite out of your paid sick leave.

Even worse, influenza claims about 36,000 American lives annually. So please don’t confuse the symptoms of the flu with that of a common cold. It’s difficult to tell the difference – but usually people infected with a common cold won’t run a high fever or suffer from headaches or extreme exhaustion.

So if you’re feeling under the weather you should really talk to your doctor just to be safe.

2) Quarantine:

The influenza virus is easily transmitted through kisses and handshakes or through most any person to person contact. And a powerful sneeze can send the virus soaring up to 10 feet or more. So stay away from anybody you suspect may be infected.

3) Like Mom Always Said:

Wash your hands every chance you get. It’s the best way I know of to keep the flu virus from mounting a full on invasion of your body. The easiest way for the flu to enter your body is through your eyes, nose or mouth.

So always keep your hands as clean as possible and try and not to touch your face if you can avoid it. And for goodness sakes, NO nail biting – it’s like eating raw germs!

4) Tough Little Buggers:

The flu virus is very resilient and can live on hard surfaces like telephone receivers, counter tops, computer key boards, door knobs and light switches for up to 72 hours. And even after that time you can still get sick just from coming into contact with the dead virus particles.

So I’ll say it again, wash your hands constantly and it’s not a bad idea to keep a bottle of hand sanitizer or moist toilettes on hand just in case.

5) Don’t Put All Your Eggs in One Basket:

Experts recommend getting a flu shot once a year to prevent seasonal outbreaks. But I’m still a little skeptical about the effectiveness of these vaccines. I’ve yet to come across a study that has convinced me hands down of their value – and even proponents of the vaccine say they’re only about 60% effective at best.

So don’t think just because you’ve had your shot you’re out of the woods just yet.

6) Timing Isn’t Everything:

Even though peak flu season starts in early October – influenza is a year round epidemic. So you have to stay vigilant all year long. A month in bed will certainly throw a wrench into your life – no work, no play, no sex — no nothing. Just hot chicken soup!

7) Your Best Defense:

Without a doubt the best way to prevent the flu from grabbing hold of you is a strong, healthy functioning immune system. By ramping up your immune system to full bore you lessen your chances of ever having the flu. And if you do happen to get the flu a healthy immune system will ease the symptoms and speed up your recovery better than anything your doctor can prescribe.

And the best tools for the job are the vitamins and nutrients found in fresh veggies. They’re exactly what your body needs to super charge your immune system and fight off most any stubborn virus.

The dark leafy varieties work best – they’re overflowing with vitamins and anti-oxidants. 4 – 6 servings a day is all it takes to keep your immune system running at maximum efficiency. And if you own a juicer like I do you can get all 6 servings in one quick glass!

I also recommend supplementing with a high end multi vitamin to make sure your body is getting everything it needs to fight off the nastiest of infections.

Exercise, fresh air, and a stress free lifestyle are all very helpful too – but I’ll talk about that a little more in depth later on in the week.

And in the mean time stay vigilant – you don’t want to be stuck in bed while all the other kids are out having fun do you?

Stay Healthy!
