Flu Kit

We have been receiving a great number of phone calls regarding the swine flu in the past few weeks. This informational sheet has been put together in an attempt to answer questions and concerns that you may have about the swine flu.

The swine flu normally infects only swine but has recently shown the ability to infect humans. Research is now showing that not only is the swine flu able to infect humans, it is also being spread by human-to-human contact, not just contact with swine.

The number one thing that you need to remember when dealing with swine flu, or any other illness, is to TREAT FOR THE SYMPTOMS that you are experiencing at the present time. The name of the illness or the strain of bacteria/virus is less important to herbal and homeopathic remedies than you might think.

Many of the same things that you would use to treat the regular flu will be what you need for the swine flu as well. Keep in mind that you are probably looking at both viral and bacterial infections occurring at the same time. Viral infections almost always open the body up for overgrowth or infestation of one unfriendly bacteria or another.
