Immune Defense - the Earlier, the Better: Expert Cites Supplement from Pure Research Products
Date:6/12/2009

BOULDER, Colo., June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Viruses infect all forms of life, are found in almost every ecosystem on Earth, and are among the most abundant types of pathologic entities on the planet, according to Wikipedia.org. Recently, scientists discovered that the 2009 H1N1 swine flu virus is more like the H5N1 avian flu than the historic 1918 pandemic H1N1 Spanish flu strain, and that current mutations of the virus have rendered previous flu vaccines less effective.

In a teleconference with colleagues, Dr. Roger Mazlen, an internist in Rosyln Heights, N.Y., discussed the current swine flu outbreaks. Aside from traditional medical school, Dr. Mazlen received specialized training at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is the former Clinical Research Director for Immunotec, Ltd. in Canada. He has practiced internal medicine and nutrition for more than 30 years.

Dr. Mazlen says there are several factors contributing to the current swine flu outbreak, including environmental, cultural and economic issues. "The current recession, loss of retirement funds, compromised nutrition, reduced exercise, obesity, and other factors produce immune depression. A depressed immune system cannot fight off the invasion of viral and other pathogens that attempt to find a home to set up infections in our bodies," he says.

The Centers for Disease Control raised the H1N1 pandemic status to level six, indicating an international pandemic, on June 11, prompting Dr. Mazlen to suggest protection strategies for a potentially larger H1N1 outbreak during the 2009/10 flu season. "Frequent hand-washing is a start. Also, lots of daily water helps to hydrate the body and assist the immune system," he says. Vitamin and mineral supplements add fortification, but Dr. Mazlen suggests adding fish oil because of its clinically proven immune function support. Fish oil blends are available as gel capsules or in liquid form at health food stores, and several different brands are also available at http://www.puritan.com.

When asked if the popular herbal remedy Echinacea could be effective, Dr. Mazlen explained that studies have proven the product has minimal effectiveness in stimulating the immune response. He said he prefers a natural immune-stimulating product which he has used with over 500 patients, including his own family members. The product was originally developed in Russia, but is now made in the U.S. Dr. Mazlen says he has had good results during the past years with patients fighting flu and other infections. The product, Del-Immune V, is available at http://www.delimmune.com.

Early measures to protect health might be the key to minimizing potentially serious infections this winter. Dr. Mazlen closed the discussion by saying this is the first time he has been genuinely concerned about the coming flu season this fall, whether it is H1N1 swine flu or a mutated form of the swine flu. "It is important to have an immune defense strategy this year - the earlier the better," he says.
