The outbreak of a new form of bird or avian flu in Southeast Asia in mid-2003 had caused considerable panic. There had been warnings - including warnings from former US President George Bush - that millions of people will die from an avian flu pandemic. So far, that has thankfully not happened and the human death toll from avian flu, after about five years, is 248 people as of January 2009.
But it's not just the flu that has become a major source of concern. In recent decades, there has been a series of new infectious diseases appearing, such as the Ebloa virus, "flesh eating bacteria" and SARS or severe acute respiratory syndrome. At the same time, a lot of "old" diseases that were supposd to have been tackled long ago have been making a fierce new comeback. They include diseases like tuberculosis, malaria, diptheria, etc. Many have returned as drug resistant strains.
The outcome of such disease outbreaks - and scares - is not just that people get sick. The economy gets badly affected as well. During the 2003 outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome or "SARS disease", a friend's wife who worked at one of Singapore's 5-star hotels said that there was only ONE guest in the entire hotel with several hundred rooms. That's how bad things can get.
So although this website is titled Flu treatments, it covers a lot more infectious diseases - all those diseases supposedly "casued" by bacteria and viruses. It considers what causes the flu and even takes a critical look at the germ theory of disease and asks if bacteria and viruses really cause disease? Or is it the other way around as some scientists argue - that bacteria and viruses are the result of diseases?

Homeopathic medicine, too, has proven highly effective.

Apart from flu treatments, you will also pick up useful tips here on various diet and lifestyle factors that will help you prevent the flu naturally.
