I am a little freaked here because my 16 yr old who never gets sick except when he went through the psytokine (sp)storm last time around was just
deadly ill over Christmas with the same exact symptoms. I did not put it together, but this scares the poop out of me. He is still weak and well not
well. I dont know, this is really a wake up call but I suspect the flu vaccines that do not work on this will be flying off the shelves soon. Also as
it is caused by a virus the antibiotcs will NOT help witht he illness, man what a mess. Look for secondary infections that can be treated by
anti-biotics. Keep me informed please.
Natural flu infections confer broad immunity - unlike vaccines, which short-circuit the immune building process. So feel good that he's building his
defenses. ....and yes, watch to see if he has super-imposed secondary infections that can
be treated with antibiotics.
.....Go with humidifiers, essential oils (Tea Tree and eucalyptus at least), rest
and good nutrition. We all need to research the old ways -
ice to bring down fever, hot lemonade with honey (Vitamin C), etc.
Also, check out these threads - somewhat related, with interesting info. Notification of a
