Nine Effective Ways to Avoid Stomach Flu

Stomach flu isn’t really a flu. It’s a form of digestive upset which is caused by a virus. It’s very like food poisoning, but that’s caused by a bacteria.

Medically, flu is also considered to be caused by a virus, hence the name of stomach flu.

Symptoms are typically nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea, but really any digestive symptoms can be present.

If you are prone to stomach flu, it shows two things. One is that your immune system is not strong enough to prevent a virus taking hold. The second is that your weakness is your stomach.

Everyone has a weakness. For some it’s their lungs. For others, it’s their joints. Maybe yours is your digestive system.

So to avoid further bouts of stomach flu, you need to address these two aspects. The following lists effective ways to improve these areas:

  1. Raw food. This is all important. Make sure at least 50% (preferably more) is raw fruit and vegetables. Enzymes are destroyed by cooking, but are essential to a healthy gastrointestinal system.
  2. Cut back on the acid making foods. These include processed food (white sugar, artificial sweeteners, white flour, white rice, packets, fast food, etc) and animal protein (meat, chicken, eggs, dairy).
  3. Digestive problems are telling you your liver is struggling. Medical drugs, vaccines, OTC drugs, recreational drugs all put your liver under strain to a greater or lesser degree. Avoid them as much as you can. Avoid excessive alcohol for the same reason. Try to avoid chemicals in your home.
  4. Practice having a positive, optimistic frame of mind. This will go a long way to improving your overall health. Negative or pessimistic people are more unhealthy. Let go of those friends or colleagues who drag you down.
  5. Get out into nature. Become part of it. Delight in the way the raindrops fall, the sun rises, the buds fill out, the leaves change colour, the aerobatic of the birds…
  6. Exercise in some way. It could be walking your dog regularly, or going to the gym, or taking up yoga. Anything that you will enjoy, so you will do regularly and happily.
  7. Make sure you get enough sleep. You optimum amount may be three hours or eight hours. Only you know how much you need to be alert. Make sure you get it.
  8. Get enough sun. You need at least an hour’s exposure to sunlight every day to keep you healthy. The sun also converts cholesterol into vitamin D. Exposure should be on naked skin (no sun block) and naked eyes. Just don’t frazzle or overdo it in the middle of the day in summer.
  9. Buy yourself a homeopathic home prescribing kit which includes medicines for stomach flu. That way you can nip it in the bud if a bout does come along.

Stomach flu doesn’t have to be a serious illness. But it could be a wake up call for you to take remedial action. Taking proactive action now will bode well for your future health. Allow it to continue, and you can expect your health to deteriorate.

Record Breaking Volunteers Of Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta owing to a few border skirmishes at its border due to narcotics faced a very slight almost meager change in tourism. The beaches remained swarmed with people and generally people were enjoying a slightly festive atmosphere.

With the onslaught of the alleged Swine Flu, or the “Swine Flu Scare” that began, Puerto Vallarta changed over night. It became what it never was before, and that folks was “somber”. Businesses closed down, schools got shut, and cruises were stopped. And our Puerto Vallarta became quiet.

Now things are returning back to normal, however the cracks in the economy caused by the Swine Flu are still deep. The Packaging Food Party of Puerto Vallarta works diligently for the moral and economic uplift of those people who have lost their jobs due to the economic tumult. On 28th of July, 65 members of the packaging party came together and shared an important spiritual bonding with not only each other but also all of the deprived people of Vallarta. The fabulous packaging team completed a total number of 865 bags in a matter of 45 minutes. Isn’t that a remarkable accomplishment? People with high spirits and an agenda to help and support came forward from different places in order to provide aid to the needy. On such occasions one realizes how great Puerto Vallarta is and how helpful are its people.

All the volunteers headed into the PVRPV’s offices despite the sweltering weather on Tuesday, to package food for the DIF’s Child Protective Services Programs. Bags which each had 1 kg of beans, 1 kg of lentils, 1 kg of rice, 12 bullion cubes and 1 kg of soup pasta were packed. These food items were scattered all over the PVRPV office and it was the constant hard effort of all of the volunteers that made this drive a success. The volunteers constantly joked and helped each other and made sure the environment was jovial throughout.

All volunteers diligently packed, sorted and donated these packages amongst the people. Some of these volunteers are even engaged in other fundraising activities. Some volunteers were responsible for packaging while the others were responsible for tying the bags and the remaining were either tallying the bags or moving them. One of the volunteers even brought delicious cookies for the rest to enjoy. The most amazing part about this packaging party was the amount of harmony that could be seen in the volunteers. They constantly smiled while working quickly and efficiently. Their eyes were glowing because of their rare accomplishment and it was obvious that all of them realized what a noble and gifted cause they were all a part of.

After working hard the volunteers hit the street where after a mild rain shower, the temperature cooled down considerably. Now that a total of 865 bags are packaged, and that too miraculously in only 40 minutes, it almost seems as if the Food Drive is well on its way in providing solace and comfort to all the needy.

To Puerto Vallarta, With Love

In spite of all the negative press that Puerto Vallarta is receiving because of the alleged “Swine Flu,” Puerto Vallarta is and remains one of the most beautiful places in Mexico. Even though the real estate market is suffering, but there are still some threads that are holding this industry tight. If you really wonder what is going on in Puerto Vallarta in terms of the real estate, than I shall brief you on the current real estate scenario.

 

Since Puerto Vallarta is at a tropical location, there is no better place to reside once you retire. Surely properties in Philadelphia are cheap but, here in Puerto Vallarta, you will get the opportunity to enjoy dazzling beaches, friendly environment and an amazing weather. Just buy a condo in Puerto Vallarta, and get the lifestyle that is a dream of many.

 

The relative prices for real estate in Puerto Vallarta are great. I mean if you are getting a nice, cozy place with two bedrooms and two baths on a beach for $399,000 USD, what more could you possibly want? Try getting that in California…you’re just lucky Puerto Vallarta exists!

 

I know the press is going all “Run for your lives, here comes Swine Flu,” in Vallarta, but the reality is totally different. Most of the people are re-booking, but just for the record, no case of the dreaded swine flu is in Puerto Vallarta or any neighboring states. The other scares, like the drug lords, do you really think that the stuff you watch in films can happen in real? The drug lords who are at the border do not drive a thousand miles, south to Puerto Vallarta for the sole purpose to hassle the tourists. So stop making excuses, Puerto Vallarta is a dream paradise and nothing less!

 

Excellent Medical and Dental facilities are available and that too at a very cheap price. But if you laugh and smile and just generally have a great time with your friends and family, you would not need the doctors at all.

 

 The beaches in Puerto Vallarta are great and the water is ideal for boogie boarding. Once you view the sun setting radiantly on the horizon, sitting on the beach with a chilled drink in your hand, you wonder how much of the press about the killer flu is based on the reality; because trust me it would seem like any other normal day on the beach. The bars are still open and people are still planning their parties and dinners. Why should you be left behind?

 

It is pretty much the same precautionary measures that you would take everywhere. Stay away from drugs, do not parade your money, be friendly to the people and just wash your hands. You will get all that you need here, so why the delay. You’re all set.

How Long Does the Flu Last?

How long does the flu last is an open ended question. A bit like how long is a piece of string. It depends entirely on you and your circumstances. You are unique. You can’t compare yourself with anyone else.

But there are some contributing factors which will predispose you to flu.

Everyone has an achilles heel. For some it’s joints. This usually goes with heart. For some it’s accidents. You probably know people who are accident prone. For some it’s liver. And for some it’s the lungs and the respiratory system.

If you have never had a problem with colds, flus and your lungs, the chances are you never will. Your achilles heel may lie elsewhere.

But if you get colds and flus quite often, then your lungs are probably your achilles heel.

It’s quite normal to have only one area of weakness in your body. In normal life, you’ll generally not have more. Generally, when someone has more than one area of weakness, such as heart and lungs, you’re seriously ill.

So how long does the flu last, if you are prone to colds and flu? Again that comes down to you. If your nutrition is good, you eat plenty of fresh, raw fruit and vegetables, get plenty of sun, plenty of exercise, plenty of fresh air and you’re a pretty optimistic type of person, then the chances of the flu lasting long is quite remote. If you contract it at all. It might just be a cold.

However, if your nutrition is poor, with little exercise, little exposure to the sun and fresh air and you’re a pessimistic type of person, your bout of flu is likely to be prolonged. Especially if you take medication for it, instead of just going to bed for the duration.

Illnesses have a way of making you do something. It may be that you just need to take time out for a few days. Bed rest could be all that is necessary.

On the other hand, it could mean that you have avoided your ill health for so long, this time you’ll not get away with it. This time, your body will insist on a prolonged rest. Possibly even a period in hospital, as that will make you rest.

I don’t know of any culture where you are educated about your health. About how to keep healthy and what to do if your health looks a bit wobbly.

In these days in being fearful of the sun, many people are not getting enough. Rickets is making a come back. The sun is a bit like water and salt. Too much can kill you. But so can too little.

If you allow your body to do what it wants to do (go to bed), without suppressing the symptoms with medication (if you’re not badly ill), you are likely to have a health spurt afterwards. A bit like a child’s growth spurt. You have evolved, or matured.

By your actions, and yours alone you, unconsciously or consciously, decide on how long the flu will last for you.

Chronic Fatigue That Developed After the Flu

There are as many reasons for chronic fatigue as there are people suffering from it. How it started in you is unique to you. It may have started after you recovered from an acute disease. It may have started after a medical procedure, such as an operation or a vaccination. It may have started after you suffered a bad shock, after an accident or after a fright.

One of the most common scenarios for chronic fatigue is after you have recovered from a bad dose of a virus, particularly the flu. It is reckoned that over half chronic fatigue sufferers come from this.

It’s bad enough that you had a bad dose of the flu, without complications afterwards. Especially complications that seem to drag on and on.

You can be so debilitated that you have to give up hobbies and pastimes or even work. Your social and family life suffers as a result. Your partner may not be very sympathetic, thinking you’re putting it on to get those extra hours in bed.

You miss out on your children’s activities because you have no energy either to take an interest in them or to muster up the energy to take them out.

The good news is that there is highly effective and totally natural help at hand.

In the form of homeopathic remedies.

Which you can buy over the counter inexpensively and treat yourself.

The homeopathic remedy Gelsemium is a great candidate for resolving your chronic fatigue if it started after a bad dose of the flu. But your symptoms do have to match those of the remedy to affect a healing.

So lets look at some of the most important keynote symptoms you might have or had during the flu for Gelsemium to work for you.

  • never well since the flu or flu vaccination
  • a great heaviness, even your head, eyelids and/or tongue feel heavy
  • trembling of your arms or legs especially after slight exertion
  • chills down your back or heat alternating with chills
  • you have no desire to drink at all
  • headache which is better after you have urinateddizziness
  • dullness

For any homeopathic remedy to work, you only need three keynote symptoms. Bearing in mind you already have one, the first one, you only have to pick out another two.

Another symptom you probably have is the heaviness or dullness so typical in chronic fatigue.

If you find you’re also dizzy or thirstless, there’s your third keynote symptom.

You can buy some common homeopathic remedies from health shops, homeopaths and homeopathic pharmacies.

For home prescribing, you are limited to the potency (or strength) of the remedies you can purchase. So you should only be able to purchase low potencies, such as a 6c or a 30c. 30c is more powerful than 6c.

Directions will be on the bottle, so follow them. As a general rule, take the 6c twice a day or the 30c once every day or every other day.

Within about a week, you should be noticing some change, if only small. The changes may be subtle, but you should be noticing that you have a bit more energy. If this is the case, carry on. Stop when you have reached your old level of energy.

However, if you don’t see any changes after about a week to 10 days, then you probably didn’t get the symptoms right and Gelsemium is not for you. In which case you should discontinue with the remedy. It won’t help every case of chronic fatigue that developed after a virus. But it will help many.

Confusion Continues In Puerto Vallarta

The latest press release issued by Jalisco State Governor’s office confirmed that there have been no cases of Swine Flu in Puerto Vallarta yet. Still however, the state is taking measures to avoid this outbreak. Puerto Vallarta is taking steps to save the residential areas, towns and cities around the state and other tourist spots.

The city has started with the basic steps by closing down all night clubs and bars especially in the Old Town until May 4-6. Some bars located north of Centro are open and all those having license are allowed to remain open. A number of events and shows have been postponed or cancelled.

Movie theatres have been closed down until further notice, Taco stalls and stands have also been closed to avoid crowded places. Restaurants are allowed to remain open, but they have to close down by midnight and are not allowed to serve more than 2 alcoholic drinks to customers. The May Day Parade which was supposed to be held on 1st May has been cancelled and the Political campaigns for the general election on July 6 have also been postponed. The much awaited match for the Beach Soccer Qualifier has also been canceled.

The Blueshire Trip Rave scheduled for May 2nd has been postponed. All other activities and festivals including those for the Cultural Department of Puerto Vallarta planned for May have been cancelled or postponed. The traditional Vallarta May Fiesta will now begin on May 9. The State is making a special effort to control visual screening of passengers at air ports and buses too are being cleaned with disinfectants and bleaches.

Drivers are provided with masks. Visits to prisons in Jalisco have also been suspended till May 6. All these rules and regulations have been issued for your safety, so try to follow up and check up on schedules if you were planning to attend any event.

There are doubts that the deaths caused by flu have not been caused by swine flu, instead by the regular flu which kills 36,000 people every year in the US alone. People are in a state of panic and researchers too are worried because this unknown strain has no cure or vaccine as yet. However, confusion continues as according to some reports there have been no deaths caused by swine flu.

Two Albertans have returned to Canada with a mild form of swine flu. This news has been confirmed by the officials however, they have not given out details of the age of the patients or which places they visited in Mexico. Canada fears many more cases now but so far only a few have been reported and no deaths as yet.

A travel advisory has been issued for Mexico, hence Air Canada and Air Canada Vacations have suspended operations to Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Cozumel till June 1. The airlines say that flights to Mexico will continue. WestJet and WestJet Vacations too have suspended operation in Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta till May 4 at least. This decision is definitely going to affect the passengers, however not the tourism industry of Mexico. As summer approaches, the high season for tourism also comes to an end. The number of tourists going to Mexico for a vacation decreases in number till Mid May, thus the tourism industry will not suffer much loss.
