Bird flu can be prevented as long as we take nessasary presonal hygiene

With the H7N9 China bird flu scare happening right now, more and more families are getting worried of contacting the disease. Reports say that all the selling of poultry products have been halted in the said country as of early April this year.

Although you might not be living in China, the fact that the avian or bird flu has migrating birds as “spreaders” is a topmost concern. Here are a few tips to keep you and your family safe during the bird flu epidemic.

Make sure to cook poultry products well. Avian virus or bird virus is generally destroyed and killed by heat. In cooking chicken, make sure that the meat has turned white (not pink) and the juices no longer have traces of blood. To be sure, check that the cooked chicken has 74 degrees Celsius as its internal temperature.

In preparing to cook poultry products, make sure to wash all utensils and anything else that has come in contact with the raw poultry product. It is best to wash it with hot soapy water. Kitchen utensils like chopping boards and the knife should be cleaned thoroughly.

As much as possible, avoid consuming raw eggs. Raw or even undercooked eggs are harmful not because of their content but because of their outer covering or the eggshell which may be contaminated.

Always remember to wash your hands. Wash your hands with soap and water for an appropriate length of time. If you cannot do it with soap and water, use a hand sanitizer or even alcohol.

No matter what, always take pre cautious when dealing with raw meat. Make sure the meat is fully cooked before eating.

Are you protected from flu?

Flu is caused by a virus that should not last more than 3 days. While most conventional doctors will say that you should get a flu shot at least once a year, I strongly believe that with home remedies, we can knock out flu in less than a day.

All we have to do is boost our immune system with natural remedies, allowing our bodies to quickly and easily beat the infection that’s knocking us off helplessly.

I call this concoction, the power shot. Using a few cloves of garlic, chop it as fine  as possible and put in the blender to release the active ingredients.

Garlic is known to be a potent antiviral food and enhancer of immune factors and natural killer cells. On the blended garlic, add 3 drops of Echinacea tincture which is known to be the herbal remedy for respiratory infections. Add also 3 drops of golden seal tincture to reduce irritation and inflammation on the lining of your respiratory tract.

A pinch if cayenne pepper will help thin the mucus. Add half lemon juice to help in the detoxification process of the body and finally 6 ounces of tomato or vegetable juice. Mix all the ingredients together, put ice and make a cocktail out of it. This is a very effective power shot to kill away the flu.

To help replenish and wash away the toxins, we have to load up on water. And we must also hydrate ourselves using hydrotherapy since hydrating the inside is also as powerful as doing it on the outside. Flu is everywhere, so we have to keep ourselves healthy by having a balanced diet, exercise and avoid smoking and too much alcohol drinking.
