Three Ways To Treat The 2011 H1N1 Swine Flu
Swine flu infections across the globe; Three options available to protect against H1N1 swine flu
One of the hardest struck nations this year is Britain, "where 112 people have died, hospitals are filling up with very ill flu patients, and some doctors report running out of vaccine, according to the BBC." (1) While Britons contend with this latest outbreak of what is commonly known as the 2009 H1N1 swine flu, "experts are concerned that the virus… could create a similar situation in mainland Europe." (1) Unfortunately this is already the case, as a report only three days later states that "The flu epidemic will reach its peak in Bulgaria next week." (2) Swine flu's resurgence has also reached Asia, with the Japan Times reporting doubling infection rates across Japan. (3)
The rapidity with which viruses spread is now unprecedented in human history, with air travel now being able to take people around the world in less than a day. This allows viruses like 2009 H1N1 to spread so quickly, as Dr. John Carpenter of Texas A&M reports, "a comeback for the strain - which is typically more serious for younger patients - isn't out of the question. What will happen in any individual country or area, we just don't know. It's impossible to estimate. We just don't know if it will come over here. If somebody hops on a plane with it and comes over here…" (1) For countries like the US already hit by H1N1, a viral comeback is very possible, as "past data shows that there are cases in which the number of deaths is higher in the second year of a new flu epidemic." (3)
It is important that everyone this flu season knows what they can do to defend themselves against swine flu. There are three basic forms of protection against viruses like H1N1: vaccines, antiviral medications, and antiviral health supplements. Examples of each of these include the flu vaccine, Tamiflu, and Gene-Eden, respectively. The H1N1 vaccine was developed to treat the original 2009 H1N1 strain and is available at hospitals, clinics, and other local health providers. Tamiflu is an antiviral medication meant to protect against the flu; it is used a day or two after a person begins showing flu symptoms. Gene Eden is a safe and effective science-based antiviral supplement designed to help the immune system fight viruses. Seeking protection against the H1N1 virus is vital to protecting personal health this 2010/2011 winter flu season.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD, http://www.cbcd.net) is a research center recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization. The mission of the CBCD is to advance the research on the biology of chronic diseases, and to accelerate the discovery of treatments for these diseases. The CBCD published the “Purple” book by Dr. Hanan Polansky. The book presents Dr. Polansky’s highly acclaimed scientific theory of the relationship between the DNA of latent (chronic) viruses and the onset of chronic diseases. Dr. Polansky’s book can be freely downloaded from the CBCD website.
