Enterovirus is still an issue today as it was in 2014-15, so it's important for
parents who have kids with respiratory issues to take extra caution with the
tips below. The video above from NBC news highlights what you need to
know.

What can you do about Enterovirus EV-D68?
Monitor kids closely if they feel under the weather, and act
quickly because it's not just another cold!

  • Early warning signs of Enterovirus EV-D68:
  • cold
  • runny nose and sneezing
  • fever and muscle aches
  • skin rash
  • difficulty breathing and wheezing

  • To keep your kids out of the intensive care unit:
  • make a habit of washing hands (and keeping hands out
    of eyes, mouth and noses).
  • provide kids with plenty of fluids (popsicles, soups, and
    drinks).
  • clean and disinfect surfaces.
  • supercharge you child's immune system with tips below.

What's the Prognosis of Enterovirus EV-D68?
Whether Enterovirus will cause a death or spread to adults is
undetermined; however, neither has yet happened which is a
good sign that the illness affects a limited population (namely
kids five and under, and kids with asthma). Currently; however,
teenagers are at risk as well the younger kids. So just because
your child is five years and up, doesn't mean you should stop
worrying. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) anticipates the
outbreak will wane towards the end of autumn.

Enterovirus has many complications. The enteroviruses are
leading causes of

What's the Treatment for Enterovirus EV-D68?
Unfortunately, there is no known treatment for the non-polio
Enterovirus. Severe respiratory cases have been treated with
oxygen.

Beat Enterovirus and Supercharge your
Child's Immune System!  
Here is a list of immunity boosting supplements* to supercharge
your child's system (foods and supplements that will help protect
against enterovirus):

Immunity Booster #1: Black Elderberry Syrup.
Black elderberries have, for centuries, been credited with immune
supportive properties. Black Elderberry Syrup, pictured right, has
been virologist tested as a natural and effective way to fight viral
infections.

Immunity Booster #2: Vitamin D with Calcium.
"Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased
autoimmunity as well as an increased susceptibility to infection,"
according to an abstract on Vitamin D and the Immune System,
by Cynthia Aranow, MD, Investigator. Another supporter of the
idea comes from the Harvard Health Publications, trusted advice
foa healthier life, from the Harvard Medical School. Read more in
How to Boost your Immune system.

Immunity Booster #3: Vitamin C.
  • Vitamin C supplements.
  • Vitamin C works by stimulating the immune system and
    protecting against damage from the free radicals released by
    the body in its fight against the infection. Have your child
    take Vitamin C in divided doses throughout the day for
    maximum effectiveness.

Immunity Booster #4: Lemons.
In addition to being rich in Vitamin C, lemons are rich in
flavinoids, which work against infections to help you prevent cold
and flu.

  • Go ahead and serve up the home-made lemonade to give
    your child an extra measure of protection. If you're
    concerned that lemonade has too much suga, you can mix
    your lemonade concoction with a bubbly mineral water to
    dilute the sugar and provide a satisfying and thirst
    quenching option.

  • Squeeze lemon on their chicken or fish.

Immunity Booster #5: Honey.
Honey is a natural immunity booster.


Happy endings...
While it's true that there is no medication or dietary supplement
to treat an enterovirus infection, you can help your child boost
immunity. You can also help prevent the illness by washing
hands frequently.

According to the Centers for Disease control, millions of kids
annually catch the Enterovirus, which causes coughing, sneezing,
and fever and which has much more dramatic outcomes for kids
with asthma or a history of wheezing. It i s a polio-like virus.

Enterovirus made headlines in 2014, but significantly alarmed
parents in the United States when in 2015 kids quickly became ill
from a virus strain that enters the body through the
gastrointestinal tract. Here's the alert we sent through social
media to the prepper community because of the mysterious
paralysis that was happening and spreading so rapidly...

  • is five years and under, or
  • has a weakened immune system.

What is Enterovirus?
Enterovirus is a respiratory infection that's a mix of strains which
circulate every year; however, EV-D68 is a strain that puts
infants, children, and teenagers at a higher risk than adults
because they've not yet build up immunity.

Enterovirus is not new (it was first discovered in 1962), but the
intensity of this particular strain is what is causing alarm, and
that fact that its spreading rapidly throughout the United States.
Enterovirus comes from the same family as
Polio. Having started
in the Midwest, Enterovirus EV-D68 now has
spread to 41 states
according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
