Acute Infections: How dangerous are they and what can I do about them?

Originally aired on 06-18-2017

In this program Dr. Anderson will discuss the common acute infections people can acquire such as strep throat, skin infections, influenza and colds, pneumonia and many others.  A discussion of how these are transmitted, how we can lower our risk for them and which ones require immediate treatment will be given.  We will also discuss which “acute” infections can predispose you to chronic illnesses.

  • Immune resistance (why are we not sick all the time?)
  • Virus, fungus, parasite, bacteria – what’s the difference?
  • How can these become chronic?
  • “Portals of entry” for the acute infection:
    • Skin
    • Respiratory / Eye
    • Digestive system
    • Blood
  • Strep
  • MRSA
  • Skin infections
  • Influenza
  • A “cold”
  • Pneumonia
  • Digestive system
  • Septicemia
  • Prevention
