Swollen throat and difficulty breathing were absent, so the hospital believed it was some kind of flu and I was sent home. It didn’t feel anything like a flu. At home I started drinking nettle tea with valerian root to help the nervous system. Two days later I was told to drink distilled water only to help get rid of any toxins for 3 days, and end of 2nd day I was finally starting to feel better. Still a little weak I continued distilled water for a couple more days and felt back to normal.
