Prescriber’s Letter published CDC guidelines on the H1N1 (swine flu), pointing out that about 97% of circulating influenza flu viruses this winter are H1N1. Of course, immunizations are widely recommended (even though they contain mercury). Seniors are lowest priority because of previous lifetime exposure. Treatment with Tamiflu or Relenza is recommended only for severe cases because resistance is emerging. H1N1 does not appear to be any more severe than other flu viruses for the general population. A new study in Canada contends that those who received a regular flu shot have a higher risk of coming down with H1N1. Our recommendation is to use a homeopathic (Mucococcinium) once every two weeks as a prophylactic and to be sure you are taking enough vitamin D (usually 1000-2000 iu for children and 5000 iu for adults.
