A lot of the kids in my area have Swine Flu. Calming down the parents has been half the battle. Panic is never helpful so I wanted to take a few minutes to post a blog on the topic.
Before I begin, please note that nothing below is meant to replace medical care. Only to complement it and to prevent illness in the first place. So DEFINITELY go see a doctor if you think you have Swine Flu and follow your doctor's instructions!
Now that the lawyer in me got that out of the way, here are some tips:
FIRST OF ALL, RELAX!
If your child has Swine Flu and is having difficulty breathing, if you want your child to breathe fine again, getting panicky and scaring your child is one of the worst things you can do! Chances are your child is already pretty scared, so don't make it worse.
The more relaxed and calm your child remains (or hey this applies if you have Swine Flu yourself), the faster his body can heal. Don't forget your body is made to heal itself. When you purchase over the counter medicines for colds and flus, those medicines aren't to heal your cold/flu, but to suppress the symptoms until your body is able to fight off the disease. Similarly when you break your arm, your doctor puts it in a cast to get YOU out of your own way so that your arm can heal itself (i.e. so that you don't move it around and interfere with the healing process). So the point is to get out of your own way so that your body can heal itself. That means you have to get your fear and stress out of the way. The calmer you are, the better. Please don't manifest worst case scenarios and craziness with your mind.
Here is an article on how stress kills ("If you're worried about your health, stop. You're only making it worse.") : http://www.livescience.com/health/080115-stress-kills.html
ALSO, DON'T FORGET MIND OVER MATTER.
Take back your power and declare that your body will NOT host any bacteria or virus. That you won't accept it in your body. The power of belief/your mind is incredible. I haven't even coughed in over a year. And I used to get sick with a flu/cold 2-3 times a year.
AND HERE ARE SOME PRANIC HEALING-BASED TIPS FOR PREVENTION AND HEALING. Pranic Healers received some of these along with an energy healing protocol back when Swine Flu first came out back in May:
1)You can take Bee Propolis (as long as you arent allergic to bees). This helps clear out negative and diseased energy. Also you can take Royal Jelly, which gives your body more energy to heal itself and puts shield around, i.e. strengthens your ability to keep diseases out(again make sure u arent allergic to bees). The Royal Jelly isn't part of the protocol I received, but we're recommended to use it every day for overall health. Note, I'm not an herbalist, I heal people w/my hands, not supplements. These are just recommendations that were made to me and that I personally follow and find effective. Any supplements you choose to take, you do so completely at your own risk (lol, sorry the lawyer in me again).
2) Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus Oil. Put 3-5 drops of Tea Tree and 3-5 drops of eucalyptus oil in a small container with hot water. Inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth, 7-12 times per session. Repeat this protocol 3-4 times a day during 2 weeks or more. Do no exhale in the container. The abundant green prana of the Tea Tree oil has a disinfectant effect. The eucalyptus oil also has a disinfectant as well as anti-bacterial effect. These are use as antibiotic against fungus, viral and bacterial infections. Eucalyptus oil contains orange prana that helps to expel the diseased energy.
3) Salt water bath w/eucalyptus oil. Fill up your bathtub, dump in a FULL container of salt (all 26 oz) and add 10-15 drops of Eucalyptus oil. Soak for about 20 minutes, then shower as usual. Do this a few times a week if u think u have it or are coming down with something. This pulls the negative energy out of your body.
4) You can also drink lots of green tea and acai. Two of my favorite antioxidants that are wonderful for flushing out negative and diseased energy. :-)
And of course use all the other common sense recommendations like washing your hands often, getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, getting exercise, etc.
Hope these help!
