Natural Antivirals Submitted by Health Gazette on Thu, 2006-05-11 08:55. Alternative Medicine
Regular readers know that I have no time for the nonsense relating to imagined
bird-flu pandemics. However. I regarded the following item of
sufficient novelty to be of some interest. You may judge its merits for
yourself.

Research suggests certain natural foods may be as effective against virus H5N1 as commercial antivirals.

(PRWEB) May 10, 2006 -- A Biology teacher from Australia, named Stephen Jones,
has done extensive research into the H5N1 virus and compiled a list of
natural foods that are effective against it and listed others that are
detrimental.

The list may come as a surprise to many people
since foods such as spirulina and echinacea are listed as detrimental.
This strange occurrence is largely due to the fact that the virus is
immune to 2 cytokines that the body produces (TNF-a and IL-6).
Cytokines are compounds produced by the bodyís immune system that
attack and remove foreign bodies. The problem is that when a foreign
body is immune to certain cytokines, the body sees that its immune
response is not working and tries even harder, which can lead to what
is called a cytokine storm, where the body becomes flooded with these
compounds and they eventually destroy the body itself. Foods such as
Echinacea actually stimulate the production of these specific
cytokines; hence consuming it is not a good idea if one suspects they
may have the virus.

During the 1918 Spanish Flu many healthy
young people died from cytokine storms due to their immune systems
overreacting. Consuming foods which suppress the production of
cytokines TNF-a and IL-6 and enhance the production of the ones that
actually are effective against the virus will aid the patient greatly.

Other foods that create mucous in the respiratory tract, such as bananas, are
also listed as detrimental due to the fact that the predominant
breeding ground of the virus is the respiratory tract and another way
in which a patient may suffer is due to the body's over production of
mucous in this area.

Folk Medicines and Herbs to use and avoid with Bird Flu

Below is a list of foods that are said to contain substances that are natural
antivirals, immune boosters or they decrease cytokines TNF-a and IL-6.

Alternative medications that are most likely to help us during a severe pandemic:

Garlic (allicin) - Very effective antiviral. Best if fresh (raw) and crushed.
Must be consumed within 1 hour of crushing. Dosage is initially 2 to 3
cloves per day but later reduce until no body odour occurs. No toxic
effects noted. (Pubmed PMID 9049657)

Vitamin C - Boosts the immune system and is an antiviral by blocking the enzyme neuraminadase.
Viruses need neuraminadase to reproduce. There are anecdotal stories of
people taking large amounts of Vitamin C (children Ĺ) surviving the
Spanish Flu. Research shows that it may reduce the production of
cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. A study on 470 people involved giving the
test group 1000 mg hourly for 6 hours and then 1000 mg 3 times daily
after reporting flu symptoms. Symptoms decreased by 85%. (Pubmed PMID
10543583, 634178, 16169205, 12876306)

Green Tea (possible Tamiflu/Relenza alternative)- Very effective antiviral. Also decreases
the production of the cytokine (catechins) TNF-a. Inhibits
neuraminidase. May have antiviral activity that is equal to other
antivirals such as Tamiflu. (Pubmed PMID 16137775)

St Johns Wort (Hypericum) - Very effective antiviral. Also decreases the production
of the cytokine IL-6. Hypericum is an extract from St Johnís Wort.
There have been some very successful field trials in commercial flocks
infected with H5N1 in Vietnam. (Pubmed PMID 7857513, 11518071,
11362353, 7857513, 11518071)

Vitamin E - Immune booster. Also decreases the production of the cytokine TNF-a. (Pubmed PMID 155882360, 10929076) Experiments involved using mice. Very suitable for immune
compromised people, especially the elderly. Effects enhanced when taken
with Vitamin C.

Apple Juice - Antiviral. Fresh apple juice
including the pulp and skin has greater antiviral activity than heated
commercial apple juice. More research is needed. Effectiveness on H5N1
is unknown. (Pubmed PMID 32832, 12452634)

Resveratrol - Antiviral. In addition to inhibiting neuraminidase, Resveratrol also
sends a message to cells to stop manufacturing viruses. This is a
proven antiviral found naturally in red wine, peanuts, mulberries,
Japanese Knotwood root (richest source), raisins and red grapes.
Resveratrol supplements are relatively inexpensive, are more stable
than wine and is available in liquid form for absorption in the mouth.
No toxic effects noted. (Pubmed PMID 1583880, 12817628, 15985724)

Scuttellaria (Skullcap) - Antiviral. A herb used as a tea. It has no side effects
and is also a mild tranquilliser. Research suggests neuraminidase,
which is a substance needed by the H5N1 virus to reproduce, may be
inhibited.

Cranberry Juice - Early research shows that it may be
an antiviral, making viruses less able to invade or multiply.
Effectiveness on H5N1 is unknown. (Pubmed PMID15781126)

Catís Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) - Decreases the production of the cytokine
TNF-a. Also boosts immune system. The number of white blood cells was
significantly increased during treatment. No toxicity was noted. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/q...arch&DB=pubmed)
Active constituents can be found in the leaves, bark, vine, and roots.
Water extraction from bark used. Children and pregnant women are to
avoid. Has a potentially damaging effect on the DNA of proliferating
cells. (cancers, foetuses, growing children)

Curcumin (Tumeric
Spice) - Decreases the production of the cytokine TNF-a. This is the
yellow compound in turmeric spice. Research shows that this may be very
good for preventing a cytokine storm although this is not proven. Must
be taken with food or gastritis or peptic ulcers may occur. Pregnant
women and feeding mothers should avoid this. The medicinal properties
of curcurnin cannot be utilised when used alone due to rapid metabolism
in the liver and intestinal wall. When combined with Piperine found in
black pepper the absorption is increased with no adverse effects.
Obtainable from health stores in tablets, liquid, capsules already
combined with piperine. Dosage is 500mg to 4000mg daily.

Astragalus root (Astragali Radix) - Boosts immune system. (Pubmed PMID15588652)

Tea tree Steam Inhalation - Reduces the cytokine TNF-a. Add 2 drops of tea
tree oil in a bowl of steaming water. Cover head with a towel and
inhale for 5 to 10 minutes. Relieves congestion and fights infection.
Its effectiveness is unknown. (Pubmed PMID 11131302)

The following substances may be best to avoid during a H5N1 pandemic

Elderberry juice (Sambucal) - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a and
IL-6. This substance is very effective against the common flu but may
not be desirable for the H5N1 virus. Increases in these cytokines may
trigger a lethal cytokine storm. (Isr Med Journal2002 Nov;4:944-6)

Micro Algae (Chlorella and Spirulina) - AVOID - Increases production of cytokine TNF-a. (Pubmed PMID 11731916)

Honey - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. (Pubmed PMID12824009)

Chocolate - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. (Pubmed PMID 12885154, PMID 1091792

Echinacea - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. Although it
is often used for normal flu, research shows that it may increase the
chance of cytokine storms for H5N1. (Pubmed PMID 15556647, 9568541)

Kimchi - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. (Pubmed PMID15630182)

Dairy products & Bananas - AVOID - These foods increase mucous production.

One other thing I want to mention is apple cider vinegar, take a table
spoon 3 times a day this helps keep the body in an alkaline state were
disease cannot reside. We often take it in shot glass. Another way to
take it is to mix it in a cup of water with lime or lemon juice from
half a lime or lemon and a eighth teaspoon of cayenne pepper, throw in
some colloidal silver and you have a pretty good health/immune cocktail.
I will do this same mixture in 16 -32 ounces in a water bottle and just
drink a 3rd of it three times a day or when ever I feel the need. It
will also give you energy. I woke up the other day feeling like a was
coming down with a cold and stuffed up scratchy throat and drank about
8 ounces of this and instantly the symptoms were gone. You can work up
to about a quarter teaspoon of cayenne ( you get used to it pretty
quick) cayenne will boost the effects of other herbs and has even been
known to bring people out of heart attacks really helps with blood
circulation among other things.

recipe

Post by hawkiye on Tue 28 Apr 2009, 1:38 pm

know it says there is a danger of using Elderberries but after
some research this is not certain and I would take my chances with
elderberries before I would take the vaccine. here is what the author
of the recipe says about it:

"so far it seems that the cytokine storm usually occurred in
about 50% of the infected people and 50/50 chance is not that bad, plus
that is WITH taking the traditional antivirals like Tamiflu.

>From what I can find, elderberrys SLIGHTLY boost the immune system, but
there have been no definitive testing on this effect nor does
traditional medicine know what actually triggers a cytokine storm,

they are still investigating so there iare no percentages or figures on
immune system strength or number of T-cells, etc that trip the cytonike
switch. For now, in the absence of any hard, proven documentation, me
and mine and many others are planning on taking the gamble on
elderberry cause we know that it is, right now, the only thing that
seems to mitigated and help prevent infection of INfluenza A and B
virus. It's one of those areas where each has to make their personal
decisions, and unfortunately, based on incomplete information."


Here is a link for how to make Elderberry tincture also a good
thread to read. You may find them at your local health food or herbal
store.

http://www.thetreeofliberty.com/vb/showthread.php?s=0efbec10b4f0cf94c3a07d6296fc8162&t=58232

Here is another recipe for a remedy thats been around a long time by
the pioneer of herbal medicine Dr Christopher if you can't get
elderberries to make tincture I highly recommend this. This should be
in your preps anyways. It is called Anti- Plague or the Four Thieves. They had to change
the name from Anti- plague because of the FTC I believe.

Dr. John R. Christopher received the following formula while
prayerfully seeking to answer a question posed to him during a lecture in Snowflake, AZ. The topic was on the plagues prophesied in the last days and the question was whether there was an herbal formula that could counter the plagues. Inspired with this formula, Dr. Christopher said to prepare gallons of it to assist family and neighbors. Three months after the lecture, Dr. Christopher received a phone call reporting that the Snowflake area was hit by a very hard flu that took the life of some children, but that this formula restored the health of all who used it.

Make a coarse blend of garlic in apple cider vinegar and store it in
a dark, cool place for four days. Filter the blend in cotton, muslin cloth and squeeze out as much garlic juice as possible. Ultimately you will use 8 parts of apple cider vinegar and 2 parts fresh garlic juice, so
use enough garlic to obtain your proportion and record the amount of vinegar used as part of its
proportion and to calculate the amount of garlicjuice expressed (2 to 3 pounds of garlic is a good range to use for one gallon of Super Garlic Immune). It takes approximately 1 pound of garlic to extract 8 oz. of juice.


Make a seventh power, distilled water decoction of each of the
following herbs. Each herb should be prepared separately.

2 parts Comfrey root decoction
1 part Wormwood herb decoction
1 part Lobelia herb or seed decoction
1 part Marshmallow root decoction
1 part White Oak bark decoction
1 part Black Walnut bark or husk decoction
1 part Mullein leaf decoction
1 part Skullcap leaf decoction
1 part Uva-Ursi leaf, hydrangea, or gravel root decoction

If you consider one part of the formula to equal 4 ounces of solution you will produce approximately three and ĺ quarts of finished product. For one part herbs, according to this ratio, soak 4 ounces of the herb for four hours or more in enough distilled water to cover it completely.

After soaking, add enough distilled water to bring the amount of
solution to 16 ounces. Simmer the herbal solution over very low heat in a covered pan for
thirty minutes. Strain the liquid into a clean pan and reduce the amount of liquid to ľ
(4 oz. for the one part herbs) by simmering uncovered over very low heat. Set each aside till all are
prepared (refrigerate if not completed on the same day).

Warm to liquid state: 5 parts unfiltered, raw honey and 5 parts U.S.P. grade vegetable glycerine and the remainder of the vinegar and then add all your decoctions, mix well, get cool and store in dark bottles.

Refrigerate for long term storage.

Holy crap This Dr. says 200,000 infected in Mexico about 9.34 into the
video. Says it's following a similar pattern as Spanish Flu. etc. Says
the Maps are trailing the infections so its much more. Predicts it
could cover the US by end of next month....

Perps Who Engineerd and Released This Virus Exposed by Dr. Horowitz!

Post by hawkiye on Wed 29 Apr 2009, 2:51 am

This video is worth watching!

Perps Who Engineerd This Virus Exposed by Dr. Horowitz!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBeKB7aKzOs

(from the youtube page:)
This unprecedented H1N1-H5N1 flu outbreak implicates the Ango-American Vaccine Pipeline, says world leading consumer health protector, Dr. Leonard Horowitz

Consider the skyrocketing stock values of Novavax, Inc., precipitated by dozens of alleged flu deaths in Mexico. Then investigate the leading Anglo-American network of genetic engineers manipulating, mutating, and distributing these viruses. The evidence compels you, for the benefit of public health and safety to seriously consider, even decree, a conspiracy to commit genocide, according to this Harvard trained expert in emerging diseases.

Here, Dr. Horowitz urges an investigation of Dr. James S. Robertson, Englands leading bioengineer of flu viruses for the vaccine industry, and avid promoter of U.S. Government funding for lucrative biodefense contracts, along with collaborators at the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). These suspects helped Novavax, Inc., in Bethesda, Maryland, produce genetically-modified recombinants of the avian, swine, and Spanish flu viruses, H5N1 and H1N1, nearly identical to the unprecedented Mexican virus that is allegedly spreading to the United States at the time of this posting. The outbreak was precisely timed to promote the companys new research and huge vaccine stockpiling contracts.

Scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are implicated through collaborations and publications involving private contracts with Novavax, a company that obtains its biosimulars through CDC Influenza Branch director, Ruben O. Donis, and Dr. Rick Bright, previously working with Donis at the CDC, now Novavaxs Vice President of Global Influenza Programs.

Descriptions of this virus is pathognomonic, or diagnostic, of a virus that came from Robertsons circle of friends, Dr. Horowitz charges. No other group in the world takes H5N1 Asian flu infected chickens, brings them to Europe, extracts their DNA, combines their proteins with H1N1 viruses from the 1918 Spanish flu isolate, additionally mixes in swine flu genes from pigs, then reverse engineers them to infect humans. The end product could only have ended up in Mexico via the United States from Britain in care of the CDC. The CDC had to have sent them to Novavax, where Rick Brights team is now implicated in a conspiracy to commit genocideóthe mass killing of people for profit.
