Fight the Flu..


In this world of scientific developments and cures, our common flu remains the ‘most common’. Influenza, as we know it as Flu is a news wide-spread these days, this is a contagious viral disease, sometimes deadly if ignored.

We mistreat Flu and ignore it sometimes as common cold or a cough, it is an interesting fact that a flu is not always accompanied by fever. Well. it is contagious and deadly, so we better learn about how to prevent it and later discuss the cures…

Below are some of the symptoms, these symptoms start suddenly not gradually:

Fever* or feeling feverish/chills

  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigues
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in young children than in adults.
Flu unlike other diseases is spread either by tiny droplets by a contaminated person’s cough or sneeze, it could be because of direct contact or by you touching the tiny droplets of virus (of course unknowingly) and it spreading rapidly. Well, the best prevention, (below are some of my tips):

  • Stay away from people - not possible, you say!! I agree.. Avoid close contact with people who indicate symptoms of flu
  • Get your vaccinations- there are flu vaccination available for people aged 6 month and above.
  • Covering your face when sneezing or coughing and frequent hand washes will help.
  • If you diagnose a symptom that indicated flu, stay home and minimize contact with others.
  • There are antiviral drugs available for the flu (NOT antibiotics) that will shorten the period of the illness and help recover faster.

The road to recovery is longer than that of the sickness..

  • Always ensure you finish the course of any antiviral drugs prescribed.
  • Stay away from sick people.
  • Improve your dier, a body recovering from flu is mostly tired with usual muscle aches, a balanced diet and lots of fluid will help improve that.
  • Give your body the extra rest it needs (you have a reason)!

Initiation to Preparedness...

This is the era of technology prevailing over human-kind. We are technologically dependent in our day to day lives, be it your kitchen appliances or your high-tech computers without which we are handicapped. At the same time, we have managed to find equal number of ways to destroy ourselves as well.

This is an era where there are innumerable threats to mankind, there are natural disasters and then there are disasters that are man made. We live in times of political haphazard and the immediate threat to that is WARS. We’ve all heard about wars, some of us may have witnessed wars, most of us are prepared for wars. Nuclear war is the most ‘upgraded’ version in the war industry but have you thought about a chaos, when the world as you know, will go dark? Yes, just the way they show in the alien movies.

EMP (Electromagnetic pulse), this happens around us all the time. They occur naturally during a lightning strike and hence cause electrical disruptions nearby. Now imagine, a nuclear EMP,on a scale that can affect an entire continent and destroy all modern electronics on a colossal scale (kitchen gadgets, mobile phones, computers, CARS)! Well, imagine the movie ‘War of the Worlds’ only change will be no aliens and this will be ‘War between Countries’.

As simple as that sounds, prevention is better than cure, works perfectly here!! Start now but start slow..

Things to keep in mind:

Stock up on high Quality long-term storage food: ( Good news!! There are too many options for you to choose from, so take your time!!)

Water is the Elixir of life : That is true - nothing quenches your thirst better!!

The only remote thing (next to technology that would work in this situation is - BATTERIES!!!
Anything that runs on Battery or in this case nothing!

So take some time, think about this and check our website for long-term/short-term food/water and other emergency supplies!

Let's talk more about other tips and tricks for any natural/man-made disaster in my next blog.
