    I'm not sure if you will be checking back and get to read this, but just in case....It truly sounds as if you have had a terrible last few days. I'm sorry that you got looked over at an obviously horrible time. I'm not a specialist in raw, or natural health remedies or anything like that. But, I frequent forums like this quite a bit from time to time and know that sometimes an urgent cry out for help can slip through the cracks sometimes on line. People see a topic they may not know much about, so don't even open it to see how desperately upset someone is. What I'm trying to say is posts get overlooked by accident sometimes. I hope things have gotten better for you and your kids? I don't know a thing about Clhorella pills- sorry.

    In our house, as a general rule we don't take our daughter (or ourselves) off to the doctor for colds and flu, etc. Unless there's excessive vomiting or diareah that threatens to dehydrate us. Also, if "IT" doesn't go away in about a week (or at least getting better). Also, with kids- I get concerned if they become lethargic or high fever of course. Otherwise, we ride it out and let mother nature take care of it. But, sometimes a doctor and conventional medicine are needed I think.

    Hope things are better for you.

    Sorry for snapping at you guys. I left my house that day because my husband didn't want me to give anything to the kids and their fever was 103.7. I went to the hospital and i though they were going to call cdc on me because when the nurse ask me if i have given my son tylenol or motrin and i said no,she raise her voice and told me"""with a fever over 102 and no tylenol????????? they were discusted at me. They said my son have the swine flu(he didn't get tested at the hospital for it),so i guess i had it,my mom did and now both my kids have it. My son is under medication for it but not my daughter.I have sleep 4 hrs in a 50 something hrs. What a terrible bad flu this is. Thank God my kids have no other illness that can make this worst,but i am telling u,this is the WORST virus thing EVER!!!!!!!!!!

    I understand now,i was out of control,crying and my nerves destroyed. i love this site.

    PLz pray fo my kids to get better soon. =-(

    Hey, hang in there and directly email one of us if you can or want to.

    I'm sorry that you're ill and the kids are ill. Eat plenty of fruit and greens!!!!! Really. And drink water. :) My nephew had the flu and he's okay. He's 5. You can handle it - just get the nutrition and rest you need and deep breaths!!

  • superfood2superfood2 Raw Newbie

    I appreciate the apology. We all have outside stressors and environmental factors that cause our moods to change or for us to act in a way that we feel bad about later on. If we didn't understand, we'd be pretty isolated ourselves. Don't worry - we get it. It's okay. :D

  • I have this flu myself at the moment and have to admit to taking decongestant and paracetamol with my green smoothies and lots of water and bed rest.

    This flu is dire

    Take it easy, you sound like you are doing a great job in very difficult circumstances

    Hope you are all feeling better

    Eat lots of raw garlic. About 6 cloves a day. Same for the kids, but split a clove between the two of them. Tell them to chew it fast before it starts to burn, then drink a bunch of water. You want everyone to REEK of garlic - that means that enough of the sulfur is getting in the lungs to make a difference. Another thing I do when we are all sick is to boil water on the stove for humidity to soothe the lungs, and add drops of eucalyptus oil to the water.

    Or you could start a juice fast immediately. And I would add lots and lots of vitamin C to the juices. You can titrate to bowel tolerance, i.e. keep increasing the amount of vitamin C until you get diarrhea, then back off that amount just a bit. Also, vitamin C is metabolized very quickly so you should all have some every 2-3 hours.

    Fever is our bodies' #1 tactic to defend itself against pathogens. The idea of suppressing that response with Tylenol is just beyond ridiculous to me. Western medicine practitioners refuse to open their eyes to the harm they cause. Most people who die, do not die of the flu itself. They die of secondary infections after being hospitalized and left defenseless to the germs found there because of fever suppression with Tylenol. >:(

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    Is been a week since we all got sick and finally the kids got no fever.This Flu was the WORST thing ever!!!! My body this morning felt numb,i have to drink vegetable juice,chew ginger and take 1hr nap to feel better. The kids are coughing a lot and with lots of phlegm.Is been very hard to try to give the kids vegetable juice and things like that because their throat is been sore,imagine garlic.

    I just have to say that this Swine Flu is not joke,NO JOKE! OMG!! But i am glad that we are doing better and feeling better than before. I came home finally and talk things with my husband. Feeling pretty good. Thank u all for your kind words and for understanding. Hugs!


    do a fast! even 1 day of not eating will help your body to fight the virus ! any illness!

    good luck!!!

  • malchusmommalchusmom Raw Newbie

    Good to hear you's were fine in the end:).

    That sounded awful.I recommend having echinacea in the house and taking it in the winter when flu is about. It boosts the immune system.I haven't had even a cold for 2 years. I also eat garlic reguarly as it helps prevent colds.I hope you are all well again.
