What is the Flu? 
Influenza, commonly called "the flu" is caused by the influenza virus, which infects the respiratory tract (nose, throat, lungs). Unlike many viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, the flu causes severe illness and life-threatening complications in many people. 
 
Symptoms of flu include fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, and muscle aches. Children can have additional gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, but these symptoms are uncommon in adults. 
 
On average, approximately 5% to 20% of U.S. residents get the flu, and more than 200,000 persons are hospitalized for flu-related complications each year. About 36,000 Americans die on average per year from complications of flu. 
 
How does the flu spread? 
The main way that influenza viruses are spread is from person to person in respiratory droplets of coughs and sneezes. This can happen when droplets from the cough or sneeze of an affected person are propelled (generally up to 3 feet) through the air and deposited on the mouth or nose of people nearby. Though much less frequent, the viruses also can be spread when a person touches respiratory droplets on another person or an object and then touches their own mouth or nose (or someone else's mouth or nose) before washing their hands. 
 
Can anyone get the flu? 
Yes, anyone can get the flu and pass it along. Most healthy adults may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 days after becoming sick. That means that you will be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. 
 
MYTH: The flu cannot cause serious health complications or death 
FACT:
Some of the complications caused by flu include bacterial pneumonia, dehydration, and worsening of chronic medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes. Children may experience sinus problems and ear infections as complications from the flu. Those aged 65 years and older and persons of any age with chronic medical conditions are at highest risk for serious complications of flu. 
 
The single best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated each year (as long as you are eligible and the vaccine is recommended by your health care professional). Certain people should get vaccinated each year either because they are high risk of having serious flu-related complications or because they live with or care for high risk persons. Vaccination helps to reduce the chances of getting the flu. 
 
The History of Eucalyptus 
The genus Eucalyptus makes up nearly 3/4 of Australia's total number of plant species. In the late 1700s, early botanists first tackled the job of describing the more than 500 species of eucalyptus trees. The job isn't yet complete. New varieties and hybrids are still being discovered, and old classifications revised. 
The genus name is derived from the Greek eu, meaning "well", and kalyptos, meaning "cover". Eu kalyptos refers to the well-covered flower buds, which are cone shaped and have a lid-like structure that opens as the flowers mature. Aromatherapists and over-the-counter pharmaceutical manufacturers might take the name to mean that eucalyptus covers well a variety of common conditions. Aromatherapists use the oil for its energizing, clarifying aroma. Lots of the hundreds of colds and flu preparations available -- cough drops, throat lozenges and chest rubs -- contain eucalyptus oil and its derivatives.  
 
Eucalyptus trees are known as gum trees because they exude a sticky, tannin-rich substance known as kino. Thanks to its astringent properties, kino has a history of medicinal use. At one time it was also used as a tanning agent in the manufacture of leather goods.  
 
Another common name for eucalyptus is fever tree. Nineteenth-century British colonists, noting the fragrant, medicinal aroma of eucalyptus groves, planted the trees in tropical fever ridden districts throughout the Empire in an effort to drive away insects and contagious disease. An added plus (in the colonists' eyes) was that the trees also tended to dry out water-logged soils with their extensive, hungry root systems, making marshy soils into arable, habitable land. This deterred disease-carrying insects, especially mosquitoes, which need standing water to breed.

    USER'S OPINION   [ click here to rate! ]

    Mommy  "Works great for kids"
    This has really helped my kids be able to sleep a lot better. Ever since I first started to use this it seems as if their sinuses have almost completely disappeared. They are normally coughing throughout the night and this has helped that go away during the night. They are now able to sleep soundly throughout the night because it stays on.

    Barny  "Better sleep"
    I thought that I needed to start taking lots of different product in order to be able to get some good night sleep. With this it has helped me out in more than one way. I am able to breathe a lot better throughout the night and wake up rested.

    Mark Holt  "Easy to use"
    This product is one of my favorites for those really cold long nights. It makes the entire room something that will make you feel a lot more calmer during the night and it will help you fall asleep.

    Miranda  "Perfect for stuffy nose"
    This is a perfect product to help with a stuffy nose. I know stuffy noses can be a pain in the butt because it wont help you sleep. However. When using this throughout the night it will helpe the nose decongest during the sleep hours. Helps me be able to sleep.

    FAQ
    Who should get the flu vaccine? 
    Vaccination against the flu helps prevent illness and save lives. Flu vaccination has a proven safety record and is the most effective measure available to help prevent the flu. Prior years' vaccinations are unlikely to protect a person against influenza this year. One reason for this is that a person's immunity after flu vaccination declines over the year following the vaccination. A second reason is because flu viruses change continually, each year's flu vaccine is formulated to include currently circulating flu virus strains. 
     
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend influenza vaccination for the following groups:
    • Persons aged 50 years and older 
    • Children aged 6 months to 5 years of age† 
    • All women who will be pregnant during influenza season 
    • Persons† with underlying chronic medical conditions 
    • Healthcare workers involved in direct patient care
    When should I get the flu vaccine? 
    Even though it's better to get vaccinated in October or November, influenza vaccinations still offer benefits when given later in the season (December or later). 
     
    What is the flu vaccine? 
    There are two kinds of flu vaccine available in the United States:
    • The "flu shot" — an inactivated vaccine (containing killed virus) that is given with a needle. The flu shot is approved for use in people older than 6 months, including healthy people and people with chronic medical conditions. 
    • The nasal-spray flu vaccine — a vaccine made with live, weakened flu viruses that do not cause the flu (sometimes called LAIV for "live attenuated influenza vaccine"). LAIV is approved for use in healthy people 5 years to 49 years of age who are not pregnant.
    About two weeks after vaccination, antibodies develop that protect against influenza virus infection. Flu vaccines will not protect against flu-like illnesses caused by other non-influenza viruses. 
     
    What types of good health habits can help prevent the flu? 
    Good health habits are also an important way to help prevent the flu.
    • Avoid close contact. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too. 
    • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. 
    • Cover your mouth and nose. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick. 
    • Clean your hands. Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
    How effective is the flu shot? 
    With the flu shot, when the "match" between vaccine and circulating strains is close, the vaccine prevents influenza in about 70%-90% of healthy persons younger than age 65 years. Among elderly persons living outside chronic-care facilities (such as nursing homes) and those persons with long-term (chronic) medical conditions, the flu shot is 30%-70% effective in preventing hospitalization for pneumonia and influenza. Among elderly nursing home residents, the flu shot is most effective in preventing severe illness, secondary complications, and deaths related to the flu. In this population, the shot can be 50%-60% effective in preventing hospitalization or pneumonia and 80% effective in preventing death from the flu. 
     
    Is the flu vaccine effective against all types of flu and cold viruses? 
    The flu vaccine is your best protection against flu viruses. However, the vaccine does not provide protection against non-flu viruses that can cause colds and other respiratory illnesses. It can sometimes be hard to tell the difference between a cold and the flu based on symptoms alone. The flu vaccine won't protect you from cold or flu viruses that are already in your body when you get a flu vaccine. The flu vaccine takes about two weeks to provide protection from the flu, and it's your best protection to prevent the most common types of flu this season. 
     
    Why do I need to get a flu vaccine every year? 
    Flu viruses change from year to year, which means two things. First, you can get the flu more than once during your lifetime. The immunity (natural protection that develops against a disease after a person has had that disease) that is built up from having the flu caused by one flu virus strain doesn't always provide protection against newer strains of the flu. Second, a vaccine from the previous year may not protect against the newer viruses. That is why the flu vaccine is updated to include current viruses every year. Another reason to get the flu vaccine every year is that after vaccination, protection from the flu strains in the vaccine decreases over the year. Because of these reasons, a new flu vaccine is needed each year. 
     
    Are there side effects from the flu vaccine? 
    Most people who receive the influenza vaccine do not develop serious problems; however, all vaccines have side effects. The most common side effects of influenza vaccine include local reactions and mild general symptoms such as:
    • Soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given  
    • Fever (low grade)  
    • Aches
    Some people should not be vaccinated without first consulting a physician. They include:
    • People who have a severe allergy to chicken eggs. 
    • People who have had a severe reaction to an influenza vaccination in the past. 
    • People who have developed Guillain-Barré (GBS) within 6 weeks of getting an influenza vaccine previously. 
    • Children less than 6 months of age (influenza vaccine is not approved for use in this age group). 
    • People who have a moderate or severe illness with a fever should wait to get vaccinated until their symptoms lessen.
    What should I do if I have a serious reaction to influenza vaccine? 
    If you have a serious reaction to influenza vaccine:
    • Call a doctor, or get to a doctor right away.  
    • Tell your doctor what happened, the date and time it happened, and when you got the flu shot.  
    • Ask your doctor, nurse, or health department to file a Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) form, or call VAERS at 1-800-822-7967.
    MYTH: I got vaccinated last year, so I don't need to get vaccinated this year. 
    FACT:
    Influenza viruses change from year to year, so even if you were immune to influenza strains circulating in the past, you may not be protected from the new strains that could emerge this season.6 
     
    MYTH: You can get the flu from the injected vaccine. 
    FACT:
    Injectable influenza virus vaccines are made from influenza viruses that have been inactivated (killed) - an inactivated virus cannot give you the flu. 
     
    What is the difference between a cold and the flu? 
    The flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses but they are caused by different viruses. Because these two types of illnesses have similar flu-like symptoms, it can be difficult to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. Within the first few days of illness, special tests may be carried out, when needed, to tell if a person has the flu. 
     
    In general, the flu is worse than the common cold, and symptoms such as fever, body aches, extreme tiredness, and dry cough are more common and intense. 
     
    Colds are usually milder than the flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. Colds generally do not result in serious health problems, such as pneumonia, bacterial infections, or hospitalizations. 
     
    What to do if you get sick. 
    Diagnosing the Flu:
     
    It is very difficult to distinguish the flu from other infections on the basis of symptoms alone. A doctor's exam may be needed to tell whether you have developed the flu or a complication of the flu. There are tests that can determine if you have the flu as long you are tested within the first 2 or 3 days of illness.  
     
    If you develop flu-like symptoms and are concerned about your illness, especially if are at high risk for complications of the flu, you should consult your healthcare provider. Those at high risk for complications include people 65 years or older, people with chronic medical conditions, pregnant women, and young children. 
     
    Antiviral Medications: 
    Your doctor may recommend use of an antiviral medication to help treat the flu. These are prescription medications, and a doctor should be consulted before the drugs are used. Antiviral treatment is usually taken for 5 days and work best if they are started within two days of getting sick. Therefore, if you get flu-like symptoms, seek medical care early.  
     
    Other Ways to Respond to the Flu: 
    If you get the flu, get plenty of rest, drink a lot of liquids, and avoid smoking. Also, you can take medications such as acetaminophen to temporarily reduce fever and relieve muscle aches and pains associated with the flu. Never give aspirin to children or teenagers who have flu-like symptoms, particularly a fever. 
     
    What should I do if I miss a dose? 
    You should take the next dose as directed. Do not take 2 doses at once. Severe liver damage may occur if you take:
    • with other medicines containing acetaminophen 
    • 3 or more alcoholic drinks every day while using Theraflu products
    Please consult your health care professional if you have any further questions. 
     
    Can I take an extra dose? 
    No. Severe liver damage may occur if you take:
    • with other medicines containing acetaminophen 
    • 3 or more alcoholic drinks every day while using Theraflu products
    Please consult your health care professional if you have any further questions. 
     
    How soon can I expect to feel relief from cold and flu symptoms? 
    Response will vary between patients. Please contact your health care professional with other questions.
