Then, while you’re waiting, see what you can do to help the person. Also, make your safety a priority too.

Choking

What are some common causes of choking in an adult? sharecare.com
“..if a conscious adult is choking, his or her airway has been blocked by a foreign object, such as a piece of food or a small toy; by swelling in the mouth or throat; or by fluids, such as vomit or blood.

Common causes of choking include:

Trying to swallow large pieces of poorly chewed food.
Drinking alcohol before or during meals. (Alcohol dulls the nerves that aid swallowing.)
Wearing dentures. (Dentures make it difficult to sense whether food is fully chewed before it is swallowed.)
Eating while talking excitedly or laughing, or eating too fast.
Walking, playing or running with food or objects in the mouth.

How To Use an EpiPen

EpiPen Alternatives Exist, and They May be Cheaper
By Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer | August 26, 2016 06:29pm ET livescience.com
“…But in recent years, the price of the EpiPen has increased dramatically, from $100 in 2007 to a current price of $600 for a two-pack, according to The New York Times. This price increase may limit access to the drug for people who need it, said U.S. Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa, who sent a letter this week to Mylan, the manufacturer of EpiPen, asking about the drug’s pricing. And although health insurance may cover the drug, people with certain insurance plans, such as high-deductible plans, may have to pay the full price, according to USA Today.

But there is a cheaper alternative to the EpiPen, called Adrenaclick, which can be found at Walmart and Sam’s Club for as little as $142 with a coupon, according to Consumer Reports. Adrenaclick provides the same medication, at the same doses, as the EpiPen, according to Adrenaclick’s website. There’s also a generic version of Adrenaclick, called “epinephrine injection, USP auto-injector.” (There is no generic version of the EpiPen.)

However, the method of administering Adrenaclick or its generic version is a little different from that for the EpiPen; for example, Adrenaclick has two caps that need to be removed, while EpiPen has only one cap.

For this reason, it’s important that users learn precisely how to use whichever device they have, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) said.

“The stress of an anaphylactic reaction is not the time to realize you have a different auto-injector than what was demonstrated to you by your allergist,” AAAAI said.

Another brand of epinephrine auto-injector, called Auvi‑Q, was recalled last year because it was found to deliver potentially inaccurate doses of epinephrine, according to the Food and Drug Administration. It is no longer on the market….”

CVS generic competitor to EpiPen, sold at a 6th the price


“Published on Jan 12, 2017

CVS says it will charge $109.99 for a two-pack of the authorized generic version of Adrenaclick, a lesser-known treatment compared to EpiPen.”

Types of Shock

There are several different types of shock that are all severely life-threatening if left untreated. The following are the types of shock:

Hypovolemic shock: caused by great volume losses of blood and fluids
Cardiogenic shock: linked to heart problems
Anaphylactic shock: caused by a severe allergic reaction
Septic shock: linked to body infections
Neurogenic shock: caused by damage to the nervous system

First Aid Management for Shock

A person should call for emergency medical services immediately for symptoms of shock. While waiting for the paramedics, apply first aid to help avoid complications from developing. The following steps are generally recommended:

Call for emergency medical services immediately or have someone drive the victim to the nearest emergency room.
Check the victim’s circulation, airway and breathing. If necessary, initiate rescue breathing and CPR.
Constant check rate of breathing every five minutes even if the victim is capable of breathing on his or her own.
If the victim is conscious with no injury to the head, neck, spine or leg, lay the person down flatly with the feet elevated about 12 inches to increase circulation. The head should not be elevated. This is called the shock position. However, if there is a suspected head, neck, back, or leg injury, do not move the individual’s position unless there is danger in the immediate environment.
If there is bleeding, broken bones or other injuries, apply appropriate first aid.
Keep the person warm by covering with a blanket or coat. Loosen any tight clothing.
If there is no injury, turn the victim’s head to the side to avoid choking. If there is a suspected spinal injury, hold the person’s head, neck and back in a line and roll the victim to the side as a unit.

“..Who Needs Magnesium?

Magnesium is used in the process of metabolism. The body consumes mega amounts—especially when under stress of any kind. This means athletes can become very prone to magnesium deficiency. Hyperkalaemia, excessive calcium depositing in the soft tissue, ligaments and joints, is a typical sign of magnesium deficiency, as are cramping and restless legs.

As tissue cell levels of magnesium drop, calcium can leach out of the bones and settle in these places. You may also find it settling at injury sites or areas of low pH in the body, as calcium is also used by the body to alkalize and buffer acid by-products.

We are exposed to large amounts of calcium in foods these days, but relatively low levels of magnesium. It is often the case that simply increasing magnesium exposure can balance and control that excess calcium…”

Epsom Salt Vs. Magnesium Chloride by MEG BRANNAGAN Last Updated: Aug 14, 2017 livestrong.com
“..Magnesium Chloride

Magnesium chloride is a type of salt that originally comes from seawater. It is often taken orally to resolve mild hypomagnesemia, or it may be given intravenously for those who have severe deficiencies. In some situations, magnesium chloride is used as an emergency medication for a heart attack. Different types of supplements may have varying amounts of elemental magnesium, which means that not all magnesium in the supplement is available for absorption by the body. According to the National Institutes of Health, magnesium chloride has approximately 12 percent magnesium available for absorption. Alternatively, magnesium sulfate, or that found in Epsom salt, contains only 10 percent magnesium available for absorption.
Considerations

Although both Epsom salt and magnesium chloride may be given for the treatment of some conditions, consult your doctor if you have any side effects. While Epsom salt is approved by the FDA as safe to ingest, read the directions to avoid overconsumption. Magnesium chloride may interfere with other drugs you might be taking, including some thyroid replacement medications and certain antibiotics. If you must take magnesium to replace a deficiency, your doctor can determine the proper dosage and what drugs are safe to use…”

Magnesium Chloride Flakes Vs Epsom Salts elektramagnesium.com.au
“..The best salt sources are from pristine mountainous locations not near industry, populations or mining. The best harvesting methods are from open salt lakes via natural dehydration in evaporation tanks, which provides a food grade quality for drinking water or tofu. This should also be confirmed via independent laboratory testing.

Dehydration of the salt brine sends the sodium chloride to the top layer, which is skimmed off to make table salt. This process leaves behind the magnesium chloride and other trace minerals in a natural mineral package from Nature.

MagnesMagnesium Chloride Flakesium chloride flakes are an excellent food source for electrolyte replacement to avoid cramps and magnesium deficiency symptoms. Food grade magnesium chloride flakes are commonly used by Asian food manufacturers to make tofu products. They can also be added to filtered water to make a mineral alkaline drinking water…

When you soak in a magnesium flakes bath or footsoak the hot water helps the skin to open up and absorb more magnesium. In addition, the body can release toxins and metabolism wastes through the skin. Whatever you can excrete via the skin lifts the load off the kidney and liver to process and eliminate. And it feels so fantastic! Add a bit of candle light and some fragrant essential oils and you’ve got the perfect pampering bath. Relax, revive, replenish!

Even in the first ten minutes you can experience an overwhelming relaxation and sensation of calmness wind its way through your system. A surge of peace flows through your limbs, then into the heart. Did you know that the left ventricle of the heart has more magnesium receptors than any other muscle in the body? That’s how important magnesium is to the heart and its rhythm…”

Health: How to “fight” the flu?

I’ve rarely catch the flu and when I do, I do all these “home remedies” to fight it without any prescription meds (e.g. Tami Flu). I average “one” or “no” flu a season. I never had to get a vaccination at all…maybe as a kid, but never as an adult. In fact, this past winter season, I didn’t catch it all! I decided to do a blog on this topic today after chatting with someone that has it, which I asked her ..during the summer!? I did this to give her some “natural” remedies to fight this…

CAUSES

What are the causes of the flu (influenza)?
The flu (influenza) viruses
.medicinenet.com
“…influenza viruses cause the flu and are divided into three types, designated A, B, and C. Influenza types A and B are responsible for epidemics of respiratory illness that occur almost every winter and are often associated with increased rates of hospitalization and death. Influenza type C differs from types A and B in some important ways. Type C infection usually causes either a very mild respiratory illness or no symptoms at all; it does not cause epidemics and does not have the severe public-health impact of influenza types A and B. Efforts to control the impact of influenza are aimed at types A and B, and the remainder of this discussion will be devoted only to these two types….”
Flu Attack! How a Virus Invades Your Body
January 06, 2014 articles.mercola.com
https://youtu.be/Rpj0emEGShQ

“… The video above gives a wonderfully clear illustration of what happens when someone nearby you sneezes… and you end up inhaling the virus. It’s said that a single sneeze may produce up to 40,000 droplets, which may leave your mouth at speeds of more than 200 miles per hour.1 While some of the heavier droplets will fall to the floor, others remain airborne and are quickly circulated around the room. If the droplet is infected with a virus, and you inhale it, the video shows how a single virus can quickly begin producing millions of copies within your cells.

It’s a frightening prospect, until you realize that your body has more than 1 trillion cells – making 1 million viruses a mere drop in the bucket.

Also important, your body is equipped with its own highly effective defense system – your immune system – that starts killing viruses almost as quickly as they are produced. As long as your immune system can stay one step ahead of the virus, you’ll feel better again quickly… and in some cases may not even know you were “sick.”

Preparing Yourself for the Flu Season Naturally

By Catherine Clinton ND, Clinic of Natural Medicine naturopathic.org
“Each winter the influenza virus wreaks havoc on our ability to work and play. Symptoms of the flu include fever, fatigue, muscle aches, headache, runny nose, cough and stomach symptoms like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Sometimes a flu virus can come on slowly or it can hit suddenly without much notice. Each year this leads people to wonder how they can prevent themselves and their family from getting the flu. Naturopathic prevention and treatment of the flu virus includes vitamins and minerals, botanical medicine and lifestyle recommendations….

Lifestyle tips for the prevention and treatment of the flu:

Sleep- Maintaining a balanced sleep routine is one way to keep our immune system healthy. Adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night to rejuvenate for the next day. Consistent inadequate sleep lowers the body’s defenses needed for fighting viral infections.

Stress- While stress is a part of everyday life; excessive stress can decrease immune function and make it easier to come down with the flu. Establishing stress management techniques like deep breathing, exercise, yoga or meditation can help ensure that every day stress won’t leave you vulnerable to the flu.

Diet- A diet rich in fruits, vegetables and quality proteins is a foundation for a healthy immune system. Studies have shown that eating a sugary snack or meal can depress the immune system for several hours, creating a window of time during which it is easier to get the flu. Avoiding excessive sugar can keep the immune system working at the level needed to fend off viral infections, like the flu….

Stomach Flu Treatment & Survival Guide
By Kate Rope parenting.com
“..The good news is that, while uncomfortable (and, let’s face it, gross), in most kids, a stomach bug is not a serious illness and will resolve on its own after a few days of TLC. Here’s our guide to spotting the symptoms, taking care of your little patient, knowing when to call your doctor and avoiding it altogether…

“As soon as they are feeling a little bit hungry, you can advance to the BRAT diet,” advises Frankowski. That stands for bananas, rice, applesauce, or toast. Plain crackers are fine too. Try one item and give it a little time to see how her system handles it. If it comes right back up or out, it’s too soon to go solid….

This woman asked for prayer as she was feeling quite bad from the flu. After prayer, she felt heat moving through her body and she was healed. Here’s her testimony.”

Healed from Sinusitis!

Gerhard – St. Petersburg, Russia cai.org
“…Rebuke the infection of the sinuses.
Lay hands on your face and order the sinuses to open, and the pus to flow out. Order the sinuses to heal.
Pray for the arms to become the same length (this corrects any twists in the spine) and order the swelling of the sinuses to disappear.
Avoid nicotine (no problem after I became a Christian) and caffeine.
Drinking at least 8 glasses of water will help.
A few hours after this prayer and drinking lots of water, the pus started to stream down my nose and the pressure was released! Praise the Lord – He did it without any needles!..

“.. So I did everything I thought of – I commanded any spirits of infirmity to leave me, I came against the sickness in Jesus name, I cast it out my body, but it got progressively worse. The body chills started which led to body pain. I kept running to the bathroom wanting to throw up. I prayed throughout the day for my healing because I did not want to take more time off work! By the time I got home, all I could do was lie in bed and literally cry like a baby from the pain. I could not get up because my dizziness was so severe I kept falling all over the place.

As I lay in bed in tears, it got to the point of me now begging God for healing. “Please Lord, I don’t even know what to pray anymore!”
Suddenly and as clear as day the words “JESUS IS LORD” flashed in my mind. I just went with it. As loudly as I could muster, halfway into my pillow, I declared, “Jesus is Lord… Jesus is Lord…sickness-Jesus is Lord, so get away from me.”

Within twenty minutes I was as right as rain! The dizziness and fever went away and so did the body pain! I was able to eat something for the first time that day. And I had sweet sleep (Proverbs 3:24). It was as if I could feel the illness dissolve…”
