Many people want to know exactly what the swine flu symptoms are, especially with all the different viruses. Since I caught a flu virus in 2010, the first time in many years, (in my case there was a lot of purging), I was curious and wanted to know the difference between the flu and H1N1.

On the other hand, during October & November, many other childhood conditions are common, which may be similar to swine flu such as:

I am a distributor in the US and in Canada for Pure Herbs, 100% natural herbal tinctures and have been taking their products for years. This winter season, I highly recommend a remedy called I.M.S.-W which I, too, am taking.
The combination of these herbs provide remedies for the glands of the neck, underarms, breast and reproductive areas of your body plus neutralize all kins of poisons such as bacteria, viruses, and fungus, including infectious yeasts.
A daily use of this combination (I.M.S.-W) will help to keep away infections that could invade your body. It is also important to eat between 7 and 10 servings of fruits and vegetables daily.
If you don't always have time to do so, I recommend Antioxydant also from Pure Herbs, 100% natural herbal tinctures.
This combination fights against toxic chemical compounds which lead to a large number of health problems such as heart disease, stroke, arthritis, cataracts, emphysema, cancer and immune disorders.
