Fact about The Wachters Blend of Sea Vegetation:


SARS: World health officials said not only was SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) here to stay, but its fatality rate was worsening as patients who had been lingering in hospitals have now begun to die from the disease.

If Americans think that they have dodged the biological bullet, they had better think again. As the truth about SARS comes out-slowly, due in large part to government cover-ups in the land of its birth-it is becoming clear that what is taking place in Asia threatens the entire world. Epidemiologists have long worried about a highly contagious, fatal disease that could spread quickly around the globe, and SARS might end up confirming their worst fears. Microbes can go wherever jet airliners do these days, so it is a very real possibility that the disease has not yet shown its full fury. "We don't know the reason that we've been lucky so far," says Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), "but we're not taking any chances."

The risk of death from SARS, meanwhile, may have less to do with a particular strain of the virus and more to do with the body's reaction to it. "The immunological and inflammatory response of the body," says Fauci, "could be contributing significantly to the damage in the lungs."

What It Is
SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) is a respiratory illness that primarily affects the lungs but may also involve the digestive tract.

The Symptoms
In the first phase, patients get a fever of 100.4?F or more, with chills, headache and muscle aches. Within a week, most develop a dry cough and difficulty in breathing; about 10% to 20% require a ventilator. Some also get severe diarrhea.

The Cause
Scientists have identified a previously unknown virus in the coronavirus family as the primary cause of SARS. Coronaviruses often infect animals and until now caused only mild illness in people. It may turn out, however, that SARS results from simultaneous infection by several microbes.

How It Spreads
The most common route is direct person-to-person contact. Unlike influenza or tuberculosis, SARS is transmitted not through the air but most likely by droplets spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Doctors don't know how long an infected person remains contagious.

There is still no cure. Patients are given supportive care for their symptoms, such as ventilators to aid breathing and fluids to prevent dehydration. Some researchers are searching for drugs that would block coronavirus infections; others are trying to develop a vaccine. Scientists have already sequenced the entire genome of the coronavirus, a major step in developing better treatments.

Keeping your immune system healthy and strong is important for overall health. Unfortunately, many factors such as stress, smoking, or poor diet can decrease your resistance. The following formulas, combined with moderate exercise and a healthy lifestyle-help to strengthen your immune system.
