Try Alternative Treatments For Improved Health

Traditional healthcare normally takes priority over alternative treatments, but some alternatives may be worth considering.  One of them is aromatherapy, which makes use of essential oils and dry herbal / plant material to relieve stress, fatigue, cold and flu symptoms, and others.  Sacramento cosmetologist and aesthetician Laura DuPriest stated that "essential oils work physiologically, but they also work psychologically because people relate the smell to other experiences," adding that studies on its effectiveness are sparse.

Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, says while we are seeing an increase in flu activity in California it is not an unexpected increase, nor is it too late to get vaccinated against the flu.

"California is seeing an accelerated increase in flu activity over the past few weeks," said Dr. Chapman. "You can help prevent further spread of the flu by getting a flu shot."

While influenza activity varies from year to year and is unpredictable, California generally sees an increase in cases in late December or early January and it often peaks in February or March. According to CDPH surveillance indicators, influenza activity in California is beginning to show a steady increase and is now considered to be widespread. Currently, there are more hospitalizations at this point than expected, based on historical trends.
