Immune System Booster For Flu, Hepatitis, Cancer

Herbal immune system booster for colds, allergy attacks, cancer, flu, hepatitis, infections and inflammation with Astragalus root, Shiitake mycelum, Echinacea Augustifolia root, Yew - Taxus brevifolia and Chinese Licorice root.

If you work in health related field (nurse, physician, etc.), in teaching or come into frequent contact with the public, taking IMM-U Liquid Extract daily is an excellent way to help you avoid catching a cold or flu.

Yew (Taxus brevifolia) is used successfully by clinics around the world for the treatment of such illnesses as CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), Lupus, Candida and Cancer. Its anti-viral action makes it effective against a wide variety of other maladies ranging from Epstein Barr to the flu.

The ancient Chinese believed that Shiitake mushrooms dispelled hunger, treated colds, and nourished the blood circulatory system. Scientists today are finding that Shiitake can help the body combat heart disease, hepatitis, cancer, cholesterol and viruses.

Where Echinacea has consolidated its popularity as a short-term immune booster, Astragalus is establishing its importance in the long-term recovery of people with moderate to severely weakened immune systems. A mild antibiotic, it increases the activity of white blood cells and intensifies the action of interferon production (the substance that prevents the development of a virus in living cells) in the body. These attributes make it suitable for use as a preventative against recurring colds, flu and bronchitis, as well as a help for treating chronic illnesses and supporting long term recovery from viral infections.

Femhealth's IMM-U Formula contains: Astragalus root, Shiitake mycelum, Echinacea Augustifolia root, Yew - Taxus brevifolia and Chinese Licorice root.

The immune system is composed of many interdependent cell types that collectively protect the body from bacterial, parasitic, fungal, viral infections and from the growth of tumor cells. Many of these cell types have specialized functions. The cells of the immune system can engulf bacteria, kill parasites or tumor cells, or kill viral-infected cells. Some white blood cells, like macrophages, destroy and eat bacteria and damaged cells. The B cells produce antibodies, which can neutralize viruses, bacteria or toxic proteins in the blood and other body fluids. The T cells can trace microorganisms that leave the body fluids to invade cells.

Bird Flu

There are at least 15 different strains of avian influenza that routinely infect birds around the world. The current outbreak is caused by a strain known as H5N5, which is highly contagious among birds and rapidly fatal. Unlike many other strains of avian influenza, it can be transmitted to humans, causing severe illness and death.

The volatile influenza virus thrives in the brew that is created by birds, animals and humans living in proximity in large numbers, whatever and wherever the arrangement. A January 2005 article in the journal Vaccine speculates that the great influenza pandemic of 1918-1919, for example, which killed about 50 million people worldwide in 18 months, originated from just this: a high concentration of soldiers, pigs, horses and nearby geese, duck and chicken markets in the British base camp at Etaples in Northern France in 1917.

The mix of beasts (including humans), birds and an endemic flu virus, and the potential it has for a human health disaster, has officials increasingly concerned, and this should be the big flu news of the season for us. Though transmission of the H5N5 bird flu virus to humans has thus far nearly always proceeded from birds to humans, at least one case in Thailand is suspected of coming from human-human transmission.

Influenza viruses are highly unstable and have the ability to mutate rapidly, potentially jumping from one animal species to another. Scientists fear the bird flu virus could evolve into a form that is easily spread between people, resulting in an extremely contagious and lethal disease. This could happen if someone already infected with the human flu virus catches the bird flu. The two viruses could recombine inside the victim�s body, producing a hybrid that could readily spread from person to person.
The resulting virus likely would be something humans have never been exposed to before. With no immune defenses, the infection could cause devastating illness, such as occurred in the 1918-19 Spanish flu pandemic.

Bird flu can cause a range of symptoms in humans. Some patients report fever, cough, sore throat and muscle aches. Others suffer from eye infections, pneumonia, acute respiratory distress and other severe and life-threatening complications.
