We have good news and bad news for this flu season

The bad news is that apparently they are expecting a major outbreak of the West Nile Virus this year. The good news is: You don’t have to get it!
West Nile virus is a transmitted to humans by mosquito bites. Virus symptoms range from none to severe: encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord). West Nile Virus has reached epidemic levels in Texas in 2012. Many other states (43 as of August, 2012) also reported infections, and many report an increase in the number of people diagnosed with the disease. The US CDC considers this to be the largest outbreak in the U.S. since 2004.
West Nile Virus Infection Symptoms
The following are the symptoms to be aware of about 3 to 14 days after an infected mosquito bites a person and transmits the West Nile virus:
• Serious Symptoms in a Few People. About one in 150 people infected with WNV will develop severe illness. The severe symptoms can include high fever, headache, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss, numbness and paralysis. These symptoms may last several weeks, and neurological effects may be permanent.
• Milder Symptoms in Some People. Up to 20 percent of the people who become infected have symptoms such as fever, headache, and body aches, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes swollen lymph glands or a skin rash on the chest, stomach and back. Symptoms can last for as short as a few days, though even healthy people have become sick for several weeks.
How Does West Nile Virus Spread?
• Infected Mosquitoes. Most often, WNV is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds. Infected mosquitoes can then spread WNV to humans and other animals when they bite.
• Transfusions, Transplants, and Mother-to-Child. In a very small number of cases, WNV also has been spread through blood transfusions, organ transplants, breastfeeding and even during pregnancy from mother to baby.
• Not through touching. WNV is not spread through casual contact such as touching or kissing a person with the virus.
Remember that viruses enter the body through ears, nose and mouth. You can protect yourself with essential oils to destroy them right there. A great combination would be: Clove, Eucalyptus, Pine, Oregano, Tea Tree, Thyme.
you should always be taking VS-C during this time of year. VS-C was created by a Chinese doctor for the most stubborn viruses. It was intended for a pharmaceutical company, but they could not synthetically reproduce his formula. Of course, NSP was more than thrilled to get their hands on this formula.
