Swine flu, also known as 2009 H1N1 type A influenza, is a human disease. People get the disease from other people, not from pigs.
The disease originally was nicknamed swine flu because the virus that causes the disease originally jumped to humans from the live pigs in which it evolved. The virus is a "reassortant" -- a mix of genes from swine, bird, and human flu viruses. Scientists are still arguing about what the virus should be called, but most people know it as the H1N1 swine flu virus.
The swine flu viruses that usually spread among pigs aren't the same as human flu viruses. Swine flu doesn't often infect people, and the rare human cases that have occurred in the past have mainly affected people who had direct contact with pigs. But the current "swine flu" outbreak is different. It's caused by a new swine flu virus that has changed in ways that allow it to spread from person to person -- among people who haven't had any contact with pigs.

In recent years, Mindfulness Meditation has surged in popularity for use in the treatment of stress, resilience, anxiety, depression and other physical and mental illnesses. Highly regarded institutions such as UCLA, Harvard, Oxford, Monash and Melbourne Universities have developed clinical studies into the positive impacts of Mindfulness Meditation on health and general well-being.
Smiling Mind’s mission is to provide accessible, lifelong tools based in Mindfulness Meditation. Creating happier, healthier and more compassionate people.
Our vision is for Mindfulness Meditation to be on the Australian Curriculum by 2020. Smiling Mind complements the general capabilities of ‘personal and social capability’ and ‘critical and creative thinking’ and can be included in pastoral care, well-being and mental health curricula.
Based on Dr. Royal Rife's frequencies for healing, the application generates corresponding Color, Vibration and plays specially composed music theme, which match the frequencies. The method is innovative - nobody before have made something like this. All existing devices for this kind of treatment use electrical pulses via the skin. This one touches your brain through your eyes and ears combined by the physical touch of the vibrations.
I can just play the frequencies in your ears, but it is not a pleasant feeling at all. It is even irritating. That's why I decided to compose music which contains the frequencies inside. Colors you can see are corresponding to the audio frequencies in the visual spectrum. Combination is unique and I hope it will work for you. It works for me.
Now you don't need to buy the expensive bio-resonance devices. Using your android device you can directly tune your brainwaves.
Idea, application and music are mine!
