A Natural Approach To Health
Living With German Measles
I had a question the other day about German measles.
The medical name for German measles is rubella.
German measles is a very contagious illness caused by the rubella virus.
It’s usually a mild illness.
But in rare cases, it causes more serious problems.
If you’re pregnant and get infected with the rubella virus, your baby could become infected too.
This can cause birth defects, including serious defects called congenital rubella syndrome (CRS).
CRS can cause hearing loss, eye problems, heart problems, and other complications.
The rubella virus most often is spread through droplets of fluid from the mouth, nose, or eyes of someone who has the infection.
A person who has the infection can spread these droplets by coughing, sneezing, talking, or sharing food or drinks.
You can get infected by touching something with the droplets on it and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth before washing your hands.
If you have rubella, you’re most likely to spread it a few days before the rash starts until 5-7 days after the rash first appears.
But you can spread the virus even if you don’t have any symptoms.
If you’ve had rubella, it’s very unlikely you’ll get it again.
Symptoms of rubella include:
>A mild fever.
>Swollen glands (lymph nodes), especially behind your ear and at the back of your head.
>A mild rash starting on your face and spreading to your neck, chest, and the rest of your body.
Adults, especially women, also may have joint pain.
Older children and teens also may have eye pain, a sore throat, and body aches.
Young children may have only a rash.
Symptoms may not start until 14-21 days after you’ve been near someone who has the infection.
Some people don’t have any symptoms.
To deal with German measles it’s beneficial to:
*Drink lots of purified water, organic juices, herbal teas and vegetable broths daily.
*Catnip tea or garlic enemas can be used to help lower fever if necessary.
*Clove and peppermint tea are useful in relieving symptoms.
*Maitake, reishi, and shiitake mushrooms are all effective in boosting your body’s immune system.
*Olive leaf extract is good for reducing symptoms and controlling the virus.
*Avoid processed foods.
*Rest until the rash and fever have disappeared.
*Avoid contact with people, especially women of childbearing age and their children, until one week after the rash disappears.
*Don’t give aspirin to a child with German measles.
*Supplements may be crushed, gelcaps opened and added to juice, shakes, applesauce, etc.
*Decrease exposure to toxic products (cleaners, laundry, personal care, etc.)
*Decrease food and drinks bought and/or stored in plastic containers.
*Decrease microwaved foods (denatured food).
*Become educated regarding all views and possible side effects of vaccinations.
*Become educated regarding possible side effects of any and all medications, over-the-counter or prescribed.
