Hello all and Hope yu are having a great weekend thus far!
Yesterday when we went to pick up Kolby in preschool.they gave us a note that said 1 student had now been diagnosed with Swine Flu.He goes to school in Opp.alabama.It is located in south central Alabama.I knew it was close and have been looking into a lot of info about it for months,but when we got that a good jolt of reality hit.Needless to say it was talked about in my prayers last night again.After the kids got off to sleep last night i was on here searching again.I will not panic,that causes way too much fear and mistakes so i say to you all,it is coming to you if it has not already ,SO BE READY!
I am seeing a lot of talk on Vitamin d and how much that helps to fight it off and make it way less than it is.
''Optimize your vitamin D levels. As I've previously reported, optimizing your vitamin D levels is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of ALL kinds, and vitamin D deficiency is likely the TRUE culprit behind the seasonality of the flu -- not the flu virus itself. This is probably the single most important and least expensive action you can take. I would STRONGLY urge you to have your vitamin D level monitored to confirm your levels are therapeutic at 50-70 ng.ml and done by a reliable vitamin D lab like Lab Corp.''
Wash Your Hands. Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people. Be sure you don't use antibacterial soap for this -- antibacterial soaps are completely unnecessary, and they cause far more harm than good. Instead, identify a simple chemical-free soap that you can switch your family to.
Eat Garlic Regularly. Garlic works like a broad-spectrum antibiotic against bacteria, virus, and protozoa in the body. And unlike with antibiotics, no resistance can be built up so it is an absolutely safe product to use. However, if you are allergic or don't enjoy garlic it would be best to avoid as it will likely cause more harm than good.
''Also i have been looking into Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy and as a prevenitive measure...
you can find some real good info on natural healing here..check it out before you have too...
I ask you all to join me in prayer for our safety and knowledge to get through this and please keep the kids in mind! Mine are billy,kolby,summer,charlize mae and riley..Thank you...
Would love to hear your thoughts on this...
