H1N1Flu Wellness Guide

The new H1N1Flu seemed to be all we heard about not too long ago, remember? That human swine influenza virus was similar to a seasonal flu, including complications such as pneumonia. A vaccine was available and everyone was invited to receive it free of charge. Nonetheless, prevention was and still is your best protection from all viruses including flu or cold.

The Public Health Agency recommends to:

  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water, or use hand sanitizer.
  • Cough and sneeze in your elbow or sleeve.
  • Keep doing what your normally do, but stay home if you are sick.

  • Talk to a health professional if you experience severe flu-like symptoms.
  • No matter how often you wash your hands or avoid people with colds, the fact is...those nasty bugs fight a ferocious battle against our immune system.

    Here is the simple and best advice about warding off and beating down a bout of the cold or flu so you can at least have a fighting chance:

  • Longer, better sleep can lower your chances of catching a cold. Scientists published in the Archives of International Medicine that getting enough shut-eye can strengthen your defences against many diseases, including the common cold.

  • More importantly is acting quickly on symptoms when they first appear. Early action can reduce the frequency of sneezing and blowing your nose. It may also reduce the occurrence of ear complications.

  • Hand hygiene is still the number one way to reduce transmission of germs.
