North Texas teacher dies after getting the flu

A North Texas teacher has died from complications from the flu.
Heather Holland, a second-grade teacher at Ikard Elementary School with the Weatherford Independent School District died over the weekend, the Weatherford Democrat reports. Holland got sick about a week ago and took medication, but delayed picking up the prescription due to the $116 copay, according to the newspaper.

By Friday night, Holland's condition worsened and she was taken to the hospital. Her husband Frank Holland told the Weatherford Democrat that she died Sunday morning.
"She loved helping people, helping the kids, and the kids loved her," Holland's husband told the Weatherford Democrat.
Charlotte LaGrone, a spokeswoman for Weatherford ISD, told news station CBS DFW that counselors are available at the school for the rest of the week to help students and school staff cope with the sudden loss. She added that custodians started deep cleaning the district's schools in December to keep students from getting sick, and that the specific campus where Holland was employed had received an additional cleaning on Friday, Feb. 2
This year's flu season has been particularly deadly, with flu-related deaths being reported across the nation. Last month, five flu-related deaths were reported in the greater Houston area. The CDC reports the flu is widespread across America this year and possibly won't peak until March.

  1. How A Virus Invades Your Body

    And How You can STOP This Viral Invasion Before it Gets Going

    Your skin presents a physical barrier the virus cannot normally breech

    Notice in this case the virus enters through the lungs or respiratory surfaces

    The virus may also enter your eyes, ears and other openings

    In most cases the virus will come to rest on a Mucus surface protected by the Secretory Arm of Your Natural Immune System

    This Secretory Mucus contains Antimicrobial Peptides, IGA antibodies, phagocytes and other anti-viral agents

    Among the strongest mucus anti-viral agents the are the antimicrobial peptides

    It has been shown unless your antimicrobial peptides are sufficient a virus may be able to successfully make it through the protective mucus barrier and infect cells.

    Your antimicrobial peptides depend on a high level of Vitamin D to enable them to successfully defend against viruses; ALL viruses

    IMO you need a Vitamin D level of 65 ng/ml or higher

    IMO you must also protect your ear openings with Hydrogen Peroxide

    Vitamin A is CRITICAL to Defeat a Virus Attack

    Vitamin C at a daily prophylactic dose of three grams will help keep your Immune System primed to alert and defeat a Viral Attack

    Vitamin C at one gram/hour will help fight a serious continuous Viral Attack

    Selenium is often critical to stop viral replication

    There are hundreds of foods (See Natural Anti-Virals at the end of this protocol) such as garlic that have strong anti-viral properties. Eat plenty of these such as Garlic that are super salubrious independent of their anti-viral properties.

    It is a very good idea to have this complete PROTECTION all the time as you are under continuous viral attack. The "flu virus" often infects you in the SUMMER. Your vitamin D levels, driven by the SUN, are sufficient to contain the infection at a low, imperceptible level. When "flu season" rolls around your vitamin D levels have dropped and your viral infection breaks out of confinement and you "get the flu". This paragraph is written in CDC speak. Substitute "any virus" for "flu virus" and you are closer to the truth.
