Swine Flu

I hardly dare bring this up as we seem to be verging on a bit of hysteria country-wide.

However, one or two of my clients have asked me what I do to try and prevent flu and then treat it for myself, so I have put together a bit of a newsletter which I have hopefully attached if anyone wants to read it.  Bear in mind I am not a qualified aromatherapist or herbalist - I've just used them all my life but if you are pregnant or nursing - it would be a good idea to get things checked out.  I have qualified things as much as I 'know'.

Hopefully Claire and Jane can add their comments to help you all through.

SORRY but as soon as I reviewed the file, I found a glaring error.  It always happens as soon as you press 'send'; no matter how many times you have proof-read everything.

I thought you may all enjoy this.  It was sent to me by Dr Maryellen Stephens, the resident Chiro.  It seems to put the whole swine flu "pandemic" and the looming vaccinations in perspective a bit http://www.theoneclickgroup.co.uk/

hi nature's mother, if we talk about swine flu vaccine can the swine flu vaccine be combined with the seasonal flu vaccine? No, as vaccine companies had to be done making seasonal flu vaccine before they could get started on the swine flu vaccine.

Who will get the swine flu vaccine?

CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that swine flu vaccine should first go to:

Pregnant women
Household contacts and caregivers for children younger than 6 months of age
Healthcare and emergency medical services personnel
All children and young adults from 6 months through 24 years of age, and
Persons aged 25 through 64 years who have health conditions associated with higher risk of medical complications from influenza
Next, as swine flu vaccine improves to the point that all priority groups have gotten vaccinated, everyone from the ages of 25 through 64 years will get vaccinated too. Lastly, people 65 or older, who have the least risk from the swine flu will be offered the swine flu vaccine.

It is possible to get both a seasonal flu vaccine and the 2009 H1N1 swine flu vaccine at the same time, unless they are both the nasal spray version of the flu vaccine. Instead, kids can get one as a nasal spray and one as a flu shot, or both as flu shots.

And as expected, kids who are nine years old and under need two doses of the 2009 H1N1 swine flu vaccine separated by at least four weeks to get full protection against the swine flu. Older children, like adults, need just one dose.

Thanks, Anne!  My child's 2nd grade teacher has a similar, if not exact, aromatherapy combination in the classroom.  But I've noticed she also has two electric air filters (air cleaners?) going, too.  Wouldn't they pull the benefits out of the air? Or do they work together?
