The Noro menace: A virus that strikes!
After the bird flu virus here comes another virus that us causing havoc. Known as the Noro virus it is basically a stomach affecting virus that manifests itself in the form of severe vomiting and diarrhea. Noro virus is a combination of the stomach flu and the Norwalk virus.

The virus has been known to affect more than 200 central Albertans. The virus has struck in Alberta, as of now.

What is concerning the authorities even more is its refusal to go back and let go.

The virus has caused four outbreaks as of now since December. An outbreak at Alberta Hospital Ponoka has been ongoing for nearly two months. The worst part is that despite efforts by staff to disinfect surfaces and restrict visitors, more than 100 staff and patients at the hospital have been infected.

This is a cause of worry and efforts are underway to curb the advent of the virus further. Hope it works!

If I didn't have homeopathy to use I would take Lugols Iodine 6 drops in a glass of water 3 times a day. This should take care of it nicely in a day or two. DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO IODINE!

The Norwalk virus hit a medical faciltiy I worked at a few years ago. Aside from most of the patients, most of the staff got it. I was able to cure many staff members and my son with homeopathic Bismuth. Cure came in less than one day while patients had to suffer because it was an allopathic medical institution. Other remedies to consider are Arsenicum Alb. Only one cured with Ars. Alb. Most everyone on Bismuth 30c . Of course with homeopathy each case is individual and must be assessed but often in epidemics there are only 2 or 3 remedies that are indicated.

I was on a cruise and diagnosed Feb.3rd. This is March 1, I am better but still not 100%. My doctor tells me 5% of the population do not respond to symtamatic treatment. I've lost 15%. This virus is horrible.
