Protect Your Family From Swine Flu

<b>Protect Your Family From Swine Flu</b>“></td>
<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – As you may know, swine flu (H1N1) has barreled back into the Northern Hemisphere. Swine flu is scary because, unlike the seasonal flu, it can be deadly for young, healthy people.

Tamiflu, derived from an essential oil, is the preferred treatment, but it can only be taken after you have a confirmed case of swine flu. Prevention is your family’s best defense.

Many people know the basics of flu prevention. You must wash your hands and cover your coughs. In addition, you can prevent yourself from getting sick by improving your immune system through sufficient sleep and topical use of essential oils.

According to a recent study published in the “Archives of International Medicine,” getting adequate sleep can go a long way toward improving your immune system. The participants who slept less than seven hours were three times more likely to get sick than people who slept eight or more hours.

Much like getting enough sleep, the use of anti-viral oils can mean huge gains for your immune system. For instance, Frankincense and Myrrh makes a Cold and Flu Prevention Rubbing Oil, which helps support strong immune function. The homeopathic formula contains the essential oils of eucalyptus, cinnamon, lemon, rosemary, clove, frankincense and myrrh. Users simply massage the oil into their feet and ankles once or twice daily to boost their immune system.

Essential oils are a great way to boost your immune system and prevent illness. In a study at Wythenshawe Hospital Burns Unit in England, essential oils killed off micro-organisms, and reduced airborne bacteria by 90 percent. Hospital infections were reduced within the nine-month trial.

In a book entitled “Cinnamon and Cassia: The Spices of Life” by P.N. Ravindran, scientific investigation revealed that extracts from cinnamon and cassia strengthen the immune system and exhibit antiviral action against the influenza A virus. In a study published in “BioMed Central Immunology,” eucalyptus essential oils were shown to stimulate immune response both in-vitro and in-vivo.

Eucalyptus is widely used for infectious disease — it improves the activity of white blood cells consuming foreign invaders. The natural occurring complex chemistry in many essential oils such as beta-caryophyllene, 1,8-cineole, eugenol, aldehydes and gamma terpinene, all show anti-viral activity.
