1. What is Influenza?

Influenza is a viral infection that is transmitted from person to person via droplets and small particles or fragments of fluids that are released whenever an infected person coughs or sneezes. It commonly affects the upper respiratory tract, mainly the nose and throat, but can possibly spread to the lungs and bronchi. The affected person usually recovers within one or two weeks without requiring medical treatment. However, very young and elderly patients and those that already have serious medical conditions need immediate treatment to prevent severe complications such as pneumonia and death. Remember that influenza is a highly contagious disease, giving it a great potential to cause epidemics.

Chills, fever, headache and severe muscular pains are tell-tale signs of influenza. Patients usually feel miserable and weak due to the discomforts of the inflammation in the throat and nose. In addition, patients may have high body temperature, 102 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit, and may last for 4 to 5 days.

Since influenza is a germ disease, one way of building defense against its causes is by maintaining health and strengthening the body's immune system. Influenza virus usually develops a toxic and run-down condition in the body. Dietetic errors and unhealthy factors such as worry, overwork, fatigue, poor hygiene, lack of proper exercise and rest usually make a person susceptible to this kind of infection. Drug or medication is the common treatment available for influenza. But while this kind of treatment poses health risks due to side-effects, natural treatment alternatives are more preferred for its more powerful and safer effects. For instance, the curative powers of earth elements such as mineral stone and crystals offer remedial treatments to risky influenza medications.

The human body harnesses different energy sources to maintain and correct or realign its functions. These energy sources enable all the systems and organs in the body maintain normal function to sustain health and build its defense against diseases. To bring about healing, it needs to establish harmony among the energy it contains. Influenza is one disease that blocks the entry of energies in the body. The use of natural earth elements such as stones, gems or crystals is one effective way of inviting energies inside the body so it can heal from within. With absolutely no need for drugs and expensive medications, the body promotes healing naturally.

The healing powers of natural earth; mineral stones and crystals, have long been used to remedy common illnesses. Man has long realized their refreshing, invigorating and vitalizing health benefits. For instance, in curing chronic skin diseases, the application of clay and moistened earth has made true natural bondage in repairing damaged cells and tissues. Ancient American Indians have also laid great stress on the treatment using earth elements. In addition to healing leaves and herbs, the use of the potent healing power of the earth has promoted healing, especially in controlling chills, headaches, body pains and extremely high body temperature, which are attributed to fevers and influenza.

Another attribute to the healing properties of mineral stones and crystals is its magnetic field. It acquires some of the earth's magnetism, which is extremely helpful in improving circulation and organ functions, which hastens tissue repair and cell rejuvenation. It also enables the treatment to focus specifically on the symptoms, which aids the body in fighting the infection caused by the invading virus. Hence, natural treatment alternatives to influenza offer safer and more potent healing that does not compromise health.
