What Everyone Should Know about the Flu:
(culled from various sources)
Lesson 1: We constantly have Streptococcus in our throats, yet we rarely experience Strep Throat. The same is true of cancer; Lewis Thomas, past President of Sloan-Kettering, proposed the prevailing theory of cancer – that we have cancer cells in our bodies all the time, but only when our immunity doesn’t recognize the cancer cells as pathogenic entities, are they allowed the replicate and cause health issues. The same is true of Swine Flu and other viral strains. Thus: good immunity; no flu.
Lesson 2: Human beings live among a huge natural medicine chest of anti-viral drugs found in every city park, every forest, every swamp and every open field. You cannot walk across any patch of natural land in America and NOT find anti-viral medicine. It’s everywhere! It’s in the weeds growing in the cracks in the sidewalks; it’s in weeds on the side of the stream; and it’s growing in the small patch of dirt left remaining in the median between highway lanes. In the deserts of the American Southwest, you can’t even drive to work without passing mile after mile of abundant anti-viral medicine grown by Mother Nature and just waiting for humans to wake up and be smart enough to recognize it. Culinary herbs like thyme, sage and rosemary are anti-viral. Berries and sprouts are anti-viral. Garlic, ginger and onions are anti-viral. You can’t walk through a grocery store without walking past a hundred or more anti-viral medicines made by Mother Nature.
Lesson 3: Do NOT suppress mucus or any other attempt by the body to eliminate waste and toxins. It is vitally important to let the body go through its processes of discharge. Mucus is an important way the body has if discharging waste. Of course, so are the bowels, and sweat. Sweat everyday (through exercise). Have bowel movements for every meal: food in- food-out has to be your abiding principle. If you have to resort to artificial means (such as herbs, colonics, colemas, enemas, etc) to restore proper digestive elimination, then do that.
Lesson 4: Our bodies are 80% water. Drink plenty of water each day to stay hydrated and to allow the body to flush toxins from the blood and the liver. Drink pure water, not soda or juice.
Lesson 5: Most viruses become less aggressive over time because they want to spread and not to kill their hosts. If they kill their hosts, they die as well. The viruses that do survive -the ones in humans with strong immune systems- become less virulent so that their hosts, we humans, go to work, shake hands and sneeze on others to continue to spread the virus.
Lesson 6: Avoid Hospitals: Stay away from hospitals unless you’re having an emergency, as hospitals are prime breeding grounds for infections of all kinds, and could be one of the likeliest places you could be exposed to this new bug.
Fact 1: Vaccines causing Alzheimer’s? or the flu? Take your pick:
Previous vaccination programs have been between 0% and 14% effective according to the CDC and 1% effective according to Israeli research. Israeli research has also shown that vaccinations compromise the immune system. Research at John’s Hopkins over a 10-year period showed that 5 consecutive flu vaccinations resulted in 10 times greater amounts of Alzheimer’s Disease. Russell Blaylock M.D. found that one single vaccination can cause brain inflammation that can last up to 2 years.
Tamiflu is not a solution. The dangers of this drug came to light when, in 2007, the FDA finally began investigating some 1,800 adverse event reports related to the drug. Common side effects of Tamiflu include:
All in all, the very symptoms you’re trying to avoid. More serious symptoms included convulsions, delirium or delusions, and 14 deaths in children and teens as a result of neuropsychiatric problems and brain infections (which led Japan to ban Tamiflu for children in 2007). And that’s for a drug that, when used as directed, only reduces the duration of influenza symptoms by 1 to 1 1/2 days, according to the official data. But making matters worse, some patients with influenza are at HIGHER risk for secondary bacterial infections when on Tamiflu. And secondary bacterial infections, from strep, was likely the REAL cause of the mass fatalities during the 1918 pandemic! See Fact 4 for more on this.
Fact 2: Mexicans are dying and we’re not:
Mary Houston’s theory about this is that the most likely reason why Mexicans are dying and Americans are not is because the Mexican diet is highly acidic, and pathogens LOVE acidic environments. Another factor is that a staple in the Mexican diet is corn. Corn is a highly fungalized food. It has over 32 fungi, and organic corn is not immune to the fungalization, 3 of which are known carcinogens. I gave up eating corn about 10 years ago. So should you. When the Mexicans eat it, they are fungalizing their own bodies, which makes them much more highly susceptible to any pathogen that comes their way. Swine fly is simply the pathogen du jour that settles into a fungalized body.
Fact 3: In 1976, more people died from the swine flu vaccine than from swine flu.
This isn’t the first time the public has been warned about swine flu. The last time was in 1976, and it resulted in the massive swine flu vaccine campaign. What happened as a result of this massive campaign? Within a few months, claims totaling $1.3 billion had been filed by victims who had suffered paralysis from the vaccine. The vaccine was also blamed for 25 deaths. Several hundred people developed crippling Guillain-Barr Syndrome after they were injected. Even healthy 20-year-olds ended up as paraplegics. And the swine flu pandemic itself? It never materialized.
Fact 4: The real culprit in 1918 was not the flu.
Just a couple of months ago, scientists concluded that the 1918 flu pandemic that killed between 50-100 million people worldwide in a matter of 18 months – which all these worst case scenarios are built upon – was NOT due to the flu itself. Instead, they discovered the real culprit was strep infections. People with influenza often get what is known as a “superinfection” with a bacterial agent. In 1918 it appears to have beenStreptococcus pneumoniae. Since strep is much easier to treat than the flu using modern medicine, a new pandemic would likely be much less dire than it was in the early 20th century.
All H1N1 flu’s are descendants of the 1918 pandemic strain. The reason why the flu shot may or may not work, however, from year to year, is due to mutations. Therefore, there’s no vaccine available for this current hybrid flu strain, and naturally, this is feeding the fear that millions of people will die before a vaccine can be made. In order for a “bird flu” or “swine flu” to turn into a human pandemic, it has to find an environment that favors both deadly virulence and ease of transmission. People living in squalor on the Western Front at the end of World War I generated such an environment, from which the epidemic of 1918 could arise. Likewise, crowded chicken farms, slaughterhouses, and jam-packed markets of eastern Asia provide another such environment, and that environment gave rise to the bird flu – a pathogen that both kills and spreads in birds, but not in humans. Despite the fantastic headlines and projections of MILLIONS of deaths, the H5N1 bird flu virus killed a mere 257 people worldwide since late 2003. As unfortunate as those deaths are, 257 deaths worldwide from any disease, over the course of five years, simply does not constitute an emergency worthy of much attention, let alone fear!
Fact 5: Our fear will make some people VERY rich in today’s crumbling economy.
There is up to $388 million worth of Tamiflu sales in the near future – and that’s without a pandemic outbreak. More than half a dozen pharmaceutical companies, including Gilead Sciences Inc., Roche, GlaxoSmithKline and other companies with a stake in flu treatments and detection, have seen a rise in their shares in a matter of days, and will likely see revenue boosts if the swine flu outbreak continues to spread. As soon as Homeland Security declared a health emergency, 25 percent – about 12 million doses – of Tamiflu and Relenza treatment courses were released from the nation’s stockpile. However, beware that the declaration also allows unapproved tests and drugs to be administered to children. Many health and government officials are more than willing to take that chance with your life, and the life of your child. But are you?
Fact 6: Where did this mysterious new animal-human flu strain come from?
There have been an increasing numbers of reports questioning the true nature of this virus. Could a mixed animal-human mutant like this occur naturally? And if not, who made it, and how was it released? One doesn’t have to strain very hard to find actual facts to support the notion that this may not be a natural mutation, and that those who stand to gain have the wherewithal to pull off such a stunt. Last month, American pharmaceutical company Baxter was under investigation for distributing the deadly avian flu virus to 18 different countries as part of a seasonal flu vaccine shipment. Czech reporters were probing to see if it may have been part of a deliberate attempt to start a pandemic; as such a “mistake” would be virtually impossible under the security protocols of that virus.
The H5N1 virus on its own is not very airborne. However, when combined with seasonal flu viruses, which are more easily spread, the effect could be a potent, airborne, deadly biological weapon. If this batch of live bird flu and seasonal flu viruses had reached the public, it could have resulted in dire consequences.
There is a name for this mixing of viruses; it’s called “reassortment,” and it is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created in the lab. Some scientists say the most recent global outbreak – the 1977 Russian flu – was started by a virus created and leaked from a laboratory.
Another example of the less sterling integrity of Big Pharma is the case of Bayer, who sold millions of dollars worth of an injectable blood-clotting medicine to Asian, Latin American, and some European countries in the mid-1980s, even though they knew it was tainted with the AIDS virus.
So while it is morally unthinkable that a drug company would knowingly contaminate flu vaccines with a deadly flu virus such as the bird or swine flu, it is certainly not impossible. It has already happened more than once. But there seem to be no repercussions or hard feelings when industry oversteps the boundaries of morality and integrity. Because, lo and behold, which company has been chosen to head up efforts, along with WHO, to produce a vaccine against the Mexican swine flu? Baxter! Despite the fact that ink has barely dried on the investigative reports from their should-be-criminal “mistake” against humanity.
According to Joseph Mercola, a top scientist for the United Nations, who has examined the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Africa as well as HIV/AIDS victims, has concluded that the current swine flu virus possesses certain transmission “vectors” that suggest the new strain has been genetically-manufactured as a military biological warfare weapon. The UN expert believes that Ebola, HIV/AIDS, and the current A-H1N1 swine flu virus are biological warfare agents. In addition, Army criminal investigators are looking into the possibility that disease samples are missing from biolabs at Fort Detrick – the same Army research lab from which the 2001 anthrax strain was released, according to a recent article in the Fredrick News Post. In February, the top biodefense lab halted all its research into Ebola, anthrax, plague, and other diseases known as “select agents,” after they discovered virus samples that weren’t listed in its inventory and might have been switched with something else.

Fact 7: What if a new vaccine turns out to be a killer-to-humans vaccine instead of a killer-to-flu vaccine?
If a new vaccine is developed and turns out to be a killer, the pharmaceutical companies responsible are immune from lawsuits.
Fact 8: The truth about the 36,000 figure of regular flu deaths:
When it comes to influenza, the disinformation campaigns are in full swing. One of the most often quoted pieces of disinformation being circulated today is that “regular flu” kills 36,000 people a year. Mike Adams (the Health Ranger) tracked down the source of this number and it turns out that it’s basically just a wild guess that’s been circulating since 2003 and was based on “statistical modeling” rather than any actual laboratory confirmation of flu deaths.
Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS): You can google it and see the benefits. It alkalizes the body and kills pathogens. No need to buy the activator that they sell with it. Just use lemon juice.
Colloidol Silver: Get a strong one…many parts per million….Best is ASAP Health Max 30. Website:www.americanbiotechlabs.com. According to clinical trials, no virus or bacterium can live in the presence of colloidol silver.
Vitamin C: 1000 mg per dose: take to bowel tolerance. If you start to have flu symptoms, then take enough that you give yourself diarrhea even – then back off. Better than the flu.
Golden Seal root powder….Golden seal is the strongest antibiotic herb. Can be used very effectively for flu and bacterial infection. Put 1 tsp. in a cup of hot water 2/3 x a day.
Alpha Lipoic acid to boost the immune system.
Go to Biomagscience.com and order their Wellness Kit. It can be used for everything. They are amazing for the price (half price ’til May 5). You can use magnets to strengthen the immune system, pain and all neurological disorders, to give you energy, to calm you down, to help you sleep.There’s a book that comes with them. Also used for cancer. Mary Houston’s dog had a tumor on her foot and Mary put one on for a few days (with myhrr oil) and the tumor began to get smaller.
pH Salts: Keep your body alkalized, and thus an inhospitable environment for pathogens of any kind, buy Robert Young’s ph salts from his website: www.phmiracleliving.com. Keep your immune system strong by staying away from sugars of all kinds; limit your fruit intake. Eat Green and have a green juice daily. Sugars of any kind, including fruit sugar, slow down white blood cells; they become very inactive and this allows viruses and bacteria to take over.
Eat lots of garlic. Russian Scientists have proven nothing lives in the presence of Garlic juice.
Optimize your vitamin D levels. Optimizing vitamin D levels is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of ALL kinds, and vitamin D deficiency is likely the TRUE culprit behind the seasonality of the flu – not the flu virus itself. If you are coming down with flu like symptoms and have not been on vitamin D, you can take doses of 50,000 units a day for three days to treat the acute infection. Some researchers like Dr. Cannell, believe the dose could even be as high as 1000 units per pound of body weight for three days.
Take resveratrol. A study done in 2005 showed that resveratrol inhibited the influenza-A virus from replicating. Interestingly, it wasn’t resveratrol’s antioxidant action that fought the virus. It seemed to prevent the virus by commandeering the cellular machinery it requires for replication. The authors concluded that resveratrol could be a particularly valuable anti-influenza drug.
Homeopathy: Oscillococcinum: With the first signs of an upper respiratory infection, you could also benefit greatly from homeopathics, especially Oscillococcinum. Clinical trials have shown it helps reduce the severity and shorten the duration of flu symptoms.Oscillococcinum works rapidly. One study showed 63% of patients with “complete resolution” or “clear improvement” at 48 hours. Researchers evaluated it in a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Here, the recovery rate within 48 hours of treatment was significantly greater in the group that received the active homeopathic than in the placebo group. Anas Barbariae: The homeopathic remedy Anas Barbariae is made from the liver of migrating geese. Because they travel the world, they build immunity to many viruses.
