A couple of other things that a friend of mine, who's a master herbalist has said:
Do NOT take echinacea for this flu. It seems there is some sort of big immune response 3-5 days into the flu that can either be good (fighting the flu) or bad (actually causing a bad inflamation of the lungs - which is what is sending people into the hospital) and by using echinacea, which boosts the immune system, you're more likely to get the "bad" reaction - an over-reaction.
Don't listen to the "no fever for 24 hours and you can go back to normal" thing. Because your body has been fighting hard, it's best to give yourself a few extra days after your fever breaks. Many that I know have ended up with pneumonia from this and every single one of them pushed to get back to normal life/work within a day of the fever breaking. It's not worth getting even sicker so stay out an extra two days and rest and recover.
I take echinacea. Do you have a link about this? I would like some more information about that.
Here's what she has to say. I don't have links but just her info.
She also made this post which has some other information as well as reiterating some of the same:
Good information, Ann. I will print it off. Thanks for sharing. I appreciate it.
Glad to share. I trust this woman. I get a number of things from her and she's not being extreme with her information IMO.
BTW - She's got some GREAT products. She's made our soaps for years and she has a wonderful chickweed and red clover salve that we use on EVERYTHING.
one good by-product:
The garlic stuff...you'll smell too bad to get close enough to anyone to infect them!
