  2. 2. 2009 H1N1 FluWhat is 2009 H1N1 (swine flu)? 2009 H1N1 (sometimes called “ swine flu” ) is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This new virus was first detected in people in the United States in April 2009. This virus is spreading from person-to- person worldwide, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread. On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) signaled that a pandemic of 2009 H1N1 flu was underway.
  3. 3. What is a virus Virus- ultramicro sco pic infe ctio us ag e nt that re plicate s itse lf o nly within ce lls o f living ho sts. Spe cific ag e nt o f an infe ctio us dise ase nature . Some viruses even have the ability to stitch their own genes into those of the cells they infect, which means studying their ancestry requires untangling it from the history of their hosts and other organisms. What makes the process even more complicated is that viruses dont just infect humans; they can infect basically any organism—from bacteria to horses; seaweed to people.
  4. 4. What is H1N1 (swine flu)? This is a “ new” influenza virus First detected in US April 2009 Found in other countries including Mexico & Canada (May have not started in Mexico) [H1 & N1 were first found and present in the year 2000] This flu virus g o t name be cause labo rato ry te sting sho we d the g e ne s o f this flu virus to be similar to flu viruse s fo und in pig s.
  5. 5. How does H1N1 Spread and how can we protect ourselves Transmission H1N1 spreads just like the seasonal flu person-to- person Touching surfaces that are infected with flu virus Tap water does not pose a risk but swimming pools, spas and recreational water parks do pose a risk of exposure Prevention Always wash your hands (Use hand sanitizers) Covering nose and mouth when sneezing (dispose of tissue) Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth Please “ STAY” home if you are sick (until 7days after the flu symptoms) because you contagious)
  6. 6. What are the signs and symptoms of H1N1 Remember the symptoms because they are similar to those of the seasonal flu: Fever Cough Sore throat Runnyor stuffynose Bodyaches Headaches Chills Fatigue Som m have diarrhea e ayand even vomiting
  7. 7. Watch for emergency complications with the flu. Children: Adults: • Fast breathing or trouble breathing • Difficulty breathing or shortness of • Bluish or gray skin color breath • Not drinking enough fluids • Pain or pressure in the chest or • Severe or persistent vomiting abdomen • Not waking up or not interacting • Irritable, the child does not want to be • Sudden dizziness held • Confusion • Flu-like symptoms improve but then • Severe or persistent vomiting return with fever and worse cough • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
  8. 8. How does the influenza affect us? In healthy young people and children alike the influenza virus will put their immune system on over drive, which will completely deplete their body’ s of glutathione. In the elderly the influenza virus easily invades their body’ s immune system because due to age their glutathione levels are very low. In unhealthy or those of us with underlying health conditions the influenza virus can attack the body’ s immune system because of their low glutathione levels. W hat is glutathione a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that acts as an antioxidant, an immune system booster, and a detoxifier.
  9. 9. What else can I do if after following all theseprecautions and I still do not want to take flu shot.As we see this influenza shot has been rushed to market without much testing. Therefore many of usare concerned about the safety of this influenza shot. Also the manufacturers of these influenza shotshave been granted “full” immunity against any side effects produced by their influenza shot. Ourbodies can fight off “ viruses” naturally if your immune system working optimally.With an “ accidental finding” --a discovery by Dr. Gustavo Bounous, who worked for over 25 years forthe Canadian Medical Research Council. As a surgeon, Dr. Bounous was initially looking for aprotein that would help people recover from surgery faster.He ended up unlocking one of nature’ s powerful secrets for improving our natural defenses againstdisease by showing how to strengthen our in-built master antioxidant and immune regulator.People are using this discovery to recover from “ incurable” diseases as well as protecting themselvesagainst every day colds and the flu.It was not for many years, after further research with immunologists such as Dr Patricia Kongshavn at McGill University in Montreal, that they realized what they had discovered, and why this nutritional discovery was so exciting...... that they had found HOW T IM ROVE the bodys OW M CH O P N E ANISM that REGUL E the AT S immune system and is also our MAST R antioxidant and primary DE OXIF R. E T IE
  10. 10. IMMUNOCAL A Protein Dietary Supplement - Only Better Immunocal is a bonded cysteine dietary supplement. What is bonded cysteine, exactly? Its simply the name of elements with unique benefits, which are found in certain special proteins. Immunocal is a protein supplement whose benefits reach far beyond nutrition, by virtue of the high amount of bonded cysteine it contains. In fact, Immunocal is considered a "nutraceutical" and is different from other protein supplements in its ability to support the immune system. Glutathione has three major roles in the immune system: Antioxidant, Immune booster and Detoxifier. Scientists have known for decades about the negative impact of glutathione deficiency on our health. Although the scientific evidence was staggering, it took many more years to develop a proven, effective means of raising glutathione levels in the body. Immunocal from Immunotec is clinically proven and guaranteed to do just that. It is the result of many years of rigorous research by leading scientist Dr. Gustavo Bounous, conducted while he was a researcher at the world-renowned McGill University. The evidence supporting Immunocals efficacy is so strong that the product is protected by numerous North American and international patents—a feat unparalleled by any other nutritional supplement.Referenced in the Physician’ s Desk, Reference, FDA site and Pharmacist’ s RE B D OOK
  11. 11. Why take Immunocal?Many people today are justifiably concerned about the H1N1 Flu, as well as thepossibility that deadly strains of HIV may become as contagious as the common cold.Regardless of how you look at it, the stronger your immune system is, the better preparedyou will be to stave off all kinds of infections.While many individuals take Immunocal to boost immune system health, it can also beused for a number of other purposes. Chances are, you know that anti-oxidants areextremely important. In a world where nuclear radiation may have released billions ofoxidants, it is even more important to make use of anti-oxidants. In particular, you willfind that hydrogen peroxide causes some of the most severe damage to your cells. At thesame time, glutathione is one of the few anti-oxidants that can neutralize it.
