THINK YOU HAVE A STOMACH FLU? THINK AGAIN!
Chinese New Year was celebrated on January 23, and 2012 is the year of the...dragon! The key to the dragon personality is that dragons are the free spirits of the Zodiac. An extroverted bundle of energy, gifted and utterly irrepressible, everything dragons do is on a grand scale—big ideas, ornate gestures, extreme ambitions. Because they are confident, fearless in the face of challenge, they are almost inevitably successful. Dragons usually make it to the top. However, too much enthusiasm can leave them tired and unfulfilled. Even though dragons are often willing to help others, their pride can impede them from accepting the same kind of help. Dragons’ generous personalities give them the ability to attract friends, but they can be rather solitary people at heart.
DRAGON The characteristics of the Dragon Sign are tempered by one of the five Chinese elements of metal, water, wood, fire and earth overlaying a 5-year cycle of characteristics on the original 12-year cycle. 2012 is the year of the water dragon. Water has a calming effect on the dragon’s fearless temperament. Water allows the dragon to re-direct its enthusiasm, and makes him more perceptive of others. These dragons are better equipped to take a step back to re-evaluate a situation because they understand the art of patience and do not desire the spotlight like other dragons. Therefore, they make smart decisions and are able to see eye-toeye with other people.
That being said, children are a little different. Kids with the flu often have nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. But that doesn’t mean the flu has travelled to their stomach, because it simply can’t do that. So let’s ditch the term “stomach flu” and go with “stomach bug” – a more accurate term that’s less confusing for all of us. For more information about the flu, visit www.ctv.ca/health.

If you’re vomiting, you probably don’t have the flu; you either have food poisoning or a stomach bug -- more technically, gastroenteritis. Gastroenteritis is usually caused by noroviruses or rotavirus, which are not related to influenza viruses.
2. Cleaning every part of the house.
