Prevent Swine Flu - Good Advice

Dr. Vinay Goyal is an MBBS,
DRM, DNB (Intensivist and Thyroid specialist) having clinical experience of over 20 years. He has worked in institutions like Hinduja Hospital , Bombay Hospital , Saifee Hospital , Tata Memorial etc.. Presently, he is heading our Nuclear Medicine Department and Thyroid clinic at Riddhivinayak Cardiac and Critical Centre, Malad (W).

The following message given by him, I feel makes a lot of sense and is important for all to know.

The only portals of entry are the nostrils and mouth/throat. In a global epidemic of this nature, it's almost impossible to avoid coming into contact with H1N1 in spite of all precautions. Contact with H1N1 is not so much of a problem as proliferation is.

While you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of H1N1 infection, in order to prevent proliferation, aggravation of symptoms and development of secondary infections, some very simple steps, not fully highlighted in most official communications, can be practiced (instead of focusing on how to stock N95 or Tamiflu):

1. Frequent hand-washing (well highlighted in all official communications).

2. "Hands-off-the-face" approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face (unless you want to eat, bathe or slap).

3. *Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine if you don't trust salt). *H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/ nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. In a way, gargling with salt water has the same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one. Don't underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative method.

4. Similar to 3 above, *clean your nostrils at least once every day with warm salt water. *Not everybody may be good at Jala Neti or Sutra Neti (very good Yoga asanas to clean nasal cavities), but *blowing the nose hard once a day and swabbing both nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is very effective in bringing down viral population.*

5. *Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vitamin C (Amla and other citrus fruits). *If you have to supplement with Vitamin C tablets, make sure that it also has Zinc to boost absorption.

6. *Drink as much of warm liquids (tea, coffee, etc) as you can. *Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, proliferate or do any harm.

common and all sorts of swine, avian, shoe, whatever you want to call it flus

This sure beats killing yourself with their dumb shots for their Swine and Bird Flus!!!

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that
visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu.
Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone
was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing
that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion
in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then).
T he doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the
onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and
when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously
absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said that several
years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so
were many of her customers. T he next year she placed several bowls
with onions around in her shop. T o her surprise, none of her staff got
sick. It must work.. (And no, she is not in the onion business.)

The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls
around your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your
office or under your desk or even on top somewhere. T ry it and
see what happens. We did it last year and we never got the flu.

If this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all the better.
If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case..

Whatever, what have you to lose? Just a few bucks on onions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now there is a P. S. to this for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who regularly
contributes material to me on health issues. She replied with this most
interesting experience about onions:

Weldon, thanks for the reminder. I don't know about the farmers story...
but, I do know that I contacted pneumonia and needless to say I was very
ill...I came across an article that said to cut both ends off an onion put one
end on a fork and then place the forked end into an empty jar...placing the
jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be black in the
morning from the germs...sure enough it happened just like that...
the onion was a mess and I began to feel better.

Another thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed
around the room saved many from the black plague years ago.
They have powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.

Thanks for this article. It brought back memories of when my
oldest son used to get colds all the time when he was little.
This lady told me to cut an onion and rub it on his chest.
The onion turned very black and my son soon felt better.

Also, there was a young woman where I grew up who used to
cut garlic and onion put it in a sock and pin it to her little girl's
undershirt. At the time I thought it was a terrible thing to do
to a child, having her walk around smelling like onions and garlic.
But, I guess she just wanted to keep her little girl healthy.
