Swine Flu? What Do I Do To Protect Myself?

Rebecca Park Totilo

The cry is no longer, the outbreak of plagues are coming, but the plagues are here! So lets take a deep breath and sort this thing out. What is Swine Flu?

The Center for Disease Control says:
Swine Influenza (swine flu) is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza VIRUSES. Outbreaks of swine flu happen regularly in pigs. People do not normally get swine flu, but human infections can and do happen. Most commonly, human cases of swine flu happen in people who are around pigs but it's possible for swine flu viruses to spread from person to person also.
This is a virus, not a bacteria so we need to address it as such. Since it is a virus it will not be easy to get out of our systems. So the best thing to do is not allow it in. Remember the basics our mother's taught us.

1. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Discard the tissue immediately in a waste basket.
2. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Sanitizers that are alcohol-based are also effective.
3. It's a good idea to avoid contact with sick people.

That's not all you can do, there are a few other weapons you can add to your germ fighting arsenal; therapeutic grade essential oils. Essential oils have the ability to kill bacteria, fungi and viruses, get down into the cellular level and make things right. Essential Oils are proven natural combatants to boost the immune system and fight off nasty flu bugs.
The Swine Flu is showing it might be a tough flu to beat. To combat a virus you need a virus buster. Below you will find a list of oils that are anti-viral.

· Cassia – Cinnamomum cassia

· Cinnamon - Cinnamomum verum

· Rose of Sharon – Cistus

· Lemon – Citrus Limon

· Myrrh – Commiphora Myrrha

· Tea Tree – Melaleuca alternifolia

Now you know what to do to avoid the flu.
