The most recent news alerts are saying that children, medical care workers, people with chronic health issues, obesity, asthma, and a suppressed immune system may be at greatest risk of contracting the Swine Flu H1N1 virus. While so much is still unknown, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) said in the Star Tribune October 5, 2009 that of the 36 children who died from H1N1 from April to August, six had no chronic health conditions.

Bacterial disease

But all of them had a co-occurring bacterial disease. Up to now, the most frequent co-occurring disease causing flu-related deaths is staph (staphylococcus aureus). And one third of the population carries it, mostly in their nose or on their skin. Basically, the flu causes respiratory damage, which permits staph to make its way to the lungs. Among the main things I’ve learned in my over 28 years in health and wellbeing, is the way viral and bacterial diseases take hold in the body. It’s not by chance that just anybody contracts infections.

Rather, it’s the condition of the body’s immune system which determines whether you will get sick. Daily lifestyle choices like stress, food choices, personal care and cleaning products, and air quality in home, work, and outside environments (just to mention a few), are leading factors that compromise the body’s immune system. The very best way to reduce the risks of contracting the H1N1 influenza and some other bugs, isn’t by getting vaccines, which incidentally might cause complications, it’s by taking effective measures to develop and maximize the immune system.

H1N1 virus

While lots of people will be exposed to the H1N1 virus that the people with the maximum risk of contracting the virus are those with a compromised immune system. You will find simple yet highly effective techniques to build your immune system and create a healthy home environment. The place to begin is with using 100% Pure Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils, which by the way were mankind’s first medicine dating back to 4500 B.C. Essential oils are some of the earliest and strongest therapeutic substances known. In actuality, today physicians in European hospitals even urge them to their patients.

Applying recommended essential oils into the base of each foot and day helps build the immune system since it defends against any possible harmful bacteria and viruses in the body. Additionally, diffusing essential oils in your home with a cold-air diffuser further protects your family by dispersing them in the air to safely remove airborne bacteria, fungus, mold, and scents. Inhaling these oils is highly beneficial for the immune system and provides an additional layer of security by purifying the atmosphere. I know this works firsthand, as I haven’t been ill for well over a decade because of using these oils, healthy personal care products, and making some lifestyle changes. To further prove the worth and effectiveness of these vital oils, I have a couple friends that are school teachers who implemented these oils for their toes and never contracted any flu bugs of any kind despite the fact that they shut the schools down numerous times because of so many kids being ill with the flu.


Now, I will tell you that all essential oils aren’t created equally and aren’t the exact same quality, meaning they can’t do what I’m describing in this report. In actuality, the majority of essential oils on the market today can’t do what I’m sharing with you. So ensure that you know the origin where your oils are grown and dried before applying them to your own body or breathing them in. Also read the label, it must say 100% Pure Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils together with instructions saying’For topical and aromatic usage’. If the label does not state this, don’t use it. You will experience severe burns to your skin or even worse. To sum up, my number one recommendation to safeguard your household is using 100% Pure Therapeutic-Grade Essential oils. While it’s possible to take the normal recommended products like Vitamin D and C, and garlic or eucalyptus pills to help stave off diseases, nothing compares to the effectiveness and speed of the vital oils – nothing!
