I just read your post and something caught my eye-
Earlier this spring we had a thread discussing flu symptoms from Feb/March (when, I believe, the strain emerged globally).
MANY of us reported re-occurring illness and BELOW normal temperatures that made us feel as though we had elevated temps.
We mutually discussed the possiblity that this strain lowers the body's ability to fight the infection by lowering body temp (as fevers are our immune system's way of killing viruses). Keep track of your temp- if it stays low- or varies up and down I'd get a swab to see if you have the strain- anti-virals woulnd't be of help to you know, most likely, but if you catch a mutated strain you would recognize it right away, maybe.
Just a thought i wanted to share.
Also- you're correct- H1N1 can cause long-term problems for some people, whether it's worsened asthma, a weakened heart (my grandmother, who had the '18 flu, died early due to long-term cardio effects of the strain); neurological effects (why am I not healing more quickly from spinal surgery in October? Had the flu- badly- in Feb/March???) It's important to pay close attention- we are the only ones who know our own bodies as well as we do.
If you can do research into herbal remedies, some are VITALLY important; some can't be tolerated- do research, talk to a natropath- or message me privately. I'm a biochemist-turned alternative healer after years of working on toxins.
Best health to all.
