My son has been coughing a good deal since October 7, 2009. This is not unusual for him this time of year because he has asthma. We were giving him Albuterol and the Pulmicort steriod, this helps some, but very little sometimes. I took him to school late yesterday as we were both up late the night before. I went to work and his school called me within 2 hrs and stated he had a fever of 99.9. I have been reading a lot of Ted's post as well. I became concerned about the Swine Flu, and I purchased D3 and Lysine. Gave him about 4,000 iu of D3 tablets crushed up in water, 500 mg of L-Lysine crushed up in water and 100 mg of V-C as well as his fever was now at 100.1 at 1:00pm.
6:15 500mg Lysine 100.4
7:03 500 mg Lysine 101.0
8:04 500mg Lysine 102.9 (put him in a cold shower and wife insisted on Tylenol)
Also gave Lysine at 9:03, his temp stabilized for awhile but started to go up again. Gave him Advil at 11:00 pm and temp went down again.
*** I thought the L-Lysine was for fevers, and would reduce this fast. It does not semm to have. Was I doing something wrong ? I have also been given him V-C. My son is 9 years old and is 101 lbs. My wife is now at this time buying the D3 in liquid form and the L-Lysine in caps instead of tabs. Any ideas on how it seems that maybe the Lysine did not work, or I did something wrong maybe ? Not sure if he has the Flu though. His nose is not running and there seems to be no congestion. Coughing a lot and fevered. Thanks TT

Lysine 500mg and vitamin c 100mg lozenges once an hour cured my whole family of swine flu. All four of us came down with every symptom, I had the worst case. I started giving everyone 500mg's of lysine and 100mg's of vitamin C each hour unitl they felt better then one extra dose to kill it off. husband only needed 2 doses, daughter and son needed 4, I needed 5. we are also on a daily magnesium/calcium/zinc with vitamin d3. I believe we would have been in serious trouble without Ted's helpful hints.

My son is 17 and has had a fever, some congestion and a little bit of cough since yesterday. I gave him 1g L-Lysine and 1 g vit C every hour for about 5 hours, and also 10 drops of hydrogen peroxide in juice (since I had no way of obtaining food-grade HP I used the regular one - tried on myself first, no problems). He won't do the dissolved aspirin or the hp inhalation. The fever went down from 103 to 99.5 but everything else is still the same. I'm thinking it may be bronchitis (he had it before) and just in case I just started giving him garlic, cayenne and oregano oil. The fever is still 99.5, though, and I'm getting really worried. Any thoughts? Thanks!

I just am getting over H1N1 and I felt like I tried everything. The doctors had my on antibiotics, steriods, inhaler. What I found worked best was oil pulling with coconut oil 2-3 times per day to really get the mucus out. Then I did 2 ear candles because the doctor said I had a lot of fluid in my ears, then I took tons of vitamin C in the powder form (very little sugar) and echinacea, then I tried a green "breathe deep" and "Flu Season" type tea with natural honey and 1/2 a lemon juiced. I kept our heat at 80 and had a small heater next to me to promote a fever to prevent the virus from duplicating. I also inhaled 2 drops of tea tree oil in a face humidifier. I waited until the last week of this 4 week illness to try natural remedies and they worked.

swine flu comment: I'm not one to fall into hyper health mode, but I will tell you what I have been taking this flu season to keep it at bay. After doing research on all the wonderful natural antivirals we have at hand it wasn't hard. This is not a concoction for the weak of stomach. I take a few garlic cloves, some onion, ginger and vinegar water and a few dashes of hot sauce. Throw in the blender and try with all your might to get it down. Tomato juice might make this easier. If you have it on hand put 2 drops of oregano oil with it. This is what you call an antiviral! I have avoided the flu again this year, but I get no smooching either as the drink tends to be pungent on the breath. Hope everyone stays well. Don't forget the C.

In 2009, age 66 yrs, I contracted a virus on a short plane flight. It was extremely debilitating and kept changing its symptoms. I was too weak and dizzy to leave the house and so it took me a while to go to my doctor. She said that she could see it attached to the roof of my mouth, but that medicine has nothing yet for a virus. After two months it produced the symptoms of Labrynthitis where if I moved -even my eyeballs-the room would spin and I'd vomit.
When I could not keep water down, I called an ambulance in case of dehydration. One medic checked the back of my hand and said no dehydration then they spoke to me from across the room. When my partner told them that he's been nursing me and hadn't caught it, they replied "not yet". Folks I'm convinced that this was Swine Flu. Finally, a friend in another city hearing about my condition rang and said that she had found a cure for virus and to just do exactly as she directed. It worked, so here it is:
1 teaspoon Olive Leaf Extract and 1 teaspoon Colloidal Silver in half cup of water. Drink it straight down. Do Not Repeat! Then make up a full cup of the same and gargle it (don't swallow) over 24 hours.
Guess what? It killed that thing attached to the roof of my mouth-my doctor verified that it was gone- and I soon felt normal. Word spread and I shared this recipe with a lass in her 20s who had the same symptoms and hers was gone in 24 hrs as well!

I had been dealing with sinus issues for years and regularly used a neti pot with salt water to manage it. One of my yoga students is a master herbalist and I asked her for recommendations for building up the immune system of my asthmatic daughter. I had been concerned about her catching the swine flu as it was going through the school. She told me about Wild Oregano Oil being anti-viral,bacterial and anti-fungal. I also did some research online and found a ton of information on the benefits. Make sure it's wild and the high potency.
Not only do I believe it kept my daughter from getting full blown swine flu (she started to come down with the symptoms) but she no longer needs her inhaler. So we all started taking it and normally we all get sick by this time of year but we have managed to keep the funkies at bay with this amazing stuff.
I decided to try one drop in my neti pot against many posts that warned not to because of the heat of the oil. However, I came accross one that said they tried it and it burned no worse than getting a little chlorine in the nose. I decided to try it too and instantly felt relief after the initial slight burning ceased. I have not had an issue with my sinuses since.
FREEDOM for the first time in years! Which is a huge relief as a yoga instructor. It is liquid gold in our house! I truely can't say enough about it.We take one drop under the tounge in the the morning and at night. My kids and I just chase it with water but my husband has to mix it with juice even though he's the only one who can eat wasabi and hot peppers!

Swine flu - state bill proposes forced quarantine and worse
This is VERY alarming:
"Boston - A new proposed bill designed to combat the threat of the H1N1 virus would allow the state to forcefully quarantine people in the event of a pandemic.
Anyone who refuses to comply with the quarantine order could face jail time or a $1000 per day fine. The "Pandemic Response Bill" would also force health providers to vaccinate people, authorize forcible entry into private homes, and impose fines or prison sentences on anyone not complying with isolation or quarantine orders."
Full story: http://www1.whdh.com/news/articles/local/BO123558/
This is in Massachusetts. If it passes there, I could see it being taken up by other states. Our rights are under serious threat here.

How much of this is true, I don't know, but tonight a relative sent me the link to an article entitled "A Letter on the Swine Flu Leaked from an MD in Texas". http://www.unknowncountry.com/mindframe/opinion/?id=240

Flu drugs 'unhelpful for children'
From the BBC:
Research has cast doubt on the policy of giving antiviral drugs to children for swine flu. Work in the British Medical Journal shows Tamiflu and Relenza rarely prevent complications in children with seasonal flu, yet carry side effects. Although they did not test this in the current swine flu pandemic, the authors say these drugs are unlikely to help children who catch the H1N1 virus.
[...]There is also the risk that widespread use of the drugs will mean the virus will develop resistance to them.

Since swine flu is already widespread, I encountered Frequently Corrected Myths regarding swine flu that I don't want to repeat myself over and over again.
Therefore here are the Frequently Corrected Myths (FCM) :
1. Not many have swine flu.
The number of official swine flu numbers are in the hundreds here in Thailand, but based on percentage figures of people with H1N1, the numbers are much closer to 5% of the population. An official swine flu numbers, it has to go through the usual bureaucracy. Unfortunately much of the population who do have gotten the H1N1 has been discounted.
2. Tamiflu will cure swine flu.
I have encountered a person who was dying from swine flu, pretty much the doctors have given up. Tamiflu simply didn't work both as prevention and in advanced cases of the swine flu, or the 2009 Viruses. The only thing that has helped this man in ICU was actually the hourly dose for 24 hour of 1000 mg of lysine. For weeks he was on high fever, and the only thing that can tame his fever was actually the lysine. When he did get better and body temperature became normal, the lysine dose was switched to 2000 mg every two hours, since every hour prevented him having long sleep. Lysine was fed via tube. Ideally the lysine dose can be spaced much further if there is no increase in any fever. Since this man was a confirmed H1N1, where it took a week to found out he did have H1N1, the swine flu ate away about half of his lungs, from excessive mucus, and the man was not able to breathe on his own, and has to be on an artificial respirator. As a result, the excessive mucus was controlled with 4 tablets of chinese herbal supplements ganmaoling tablets, taken every 4 hours so it may again disturb his sleep schedule. Within the first hour, there were clear indications of reduced mucus, and it was this that ate away his lungs. His inability to breathe was placed on artificial respirator, as a result two more supplements needed to restore his normal breathing using methylene blue 0.1% taken at 2 drops one in the morning and two drops one in the evening. Since methylene blue did restore or return his breathing and was taken off the artificial respirator within the week, the methylene blue caused him to sleep less as he now has more energy. Therefore the dose was reduced to one drop in the morning and one drop at 12.00 p.m. Tamiflu was not helpful both as prevention and when people did have it since some were on tamiflu.
3. There is no cure for swine flu.
To keep the word "cure" is a sin in the eyes of FDA. Therefore many people stopped having the flu after taking the lysine and ganmaoling after three days for those who already had the flu for more than two weeks and isn't going away. It's the nature of the ping pong effect of this swine flu. That means, if you can get rid of it or cure it, it will come back to you three or four more times, but at shorter intervals. Much like a ping pong rebounding when you drop them to the floor, assuming of course that lysine was used as the remedy to stop it. Some people if they take lysine for example, only 2 dose and it was completely stopped. But old people with serious immune system, the swine flu didn't help.
4. Alcohol gel will stop swine flu.
In most conditions, viruses don't get killed with alcohol or alcohol gels. They are ideal for bacteria, but viruses can get killed with hydrogen peroxide 1%, vinegar, peracetic acid, but NOT alcohol.
5. Vaccination will stop swine flu.
For a few strange believers like me, I believe the swine flu was deliberately spread, and i may be wrong, since I identified this same viruses and correctly named it "2009 virus" even before authorities found out and I noticed this viruses to be on the spread since September 2008. So obviously I may be right now and then, however, I believe vaccinations is going to make things much worse and make it more pandemic as the vaccines are made up of real live swine flu virus. How I know is rather simple. The authorities ignored the spread of viruses since last year. There was efforts by the Mexican government months before a major flu epidemic occur to giving flu shots on the children and young people. Apparently it was this flu shots that made it deadly or helped spread it. The effected were mostly youhng children and army recruits during the 1917-1918 Spanish flu. Apprently these were the same group that got vaccination BEFORE the pandemic also. It's a repeat history all over again. My favorite links anytime I talk about this pandemic has always been this, assuming you are well read and familiar with the information anyway, here it is: http://educate-yourself.org/nwo/nwopopcontrol.shtml
6. Virus first Started in Mexico.
It started near Fort Detrick which is where they developed biological weapons, commonly called H1N1. It's probably the same 1918 Spanish flu, but they keep changing the names, now it's called 2009 viruses.
7. Swine flu is like any other flu.
Not at all. This swine flu will keep on coming back until the body's immune system is broken down. I often called this swine flu that keeps coming back a ping pong virus, assuming you are strong enough to fight it off, but in my case, it has always been the lysine. People don't normally think that there IS an amino acid that reduces the fever from a flu using the swine flu. Well lysine is it. I won't use the paracetamol because it kills the liver. Lysine is an amino acid necessary for your immune system. Zinc acetate or zinc gluconate is a nice addiion, but it's not the major remedy to get rid of the swine flu. The high risk group will be people above 40 and children less than age of 10, roughly speaking.
8. MMS cured the swine flu.
I personally know of a seller of MMS promoting it's use in swine flu. In general, it won't work. It may help a little, but it will come back. It won't work as well as lysine. As a side note, he now used lysine as a swine flu preventive. Of course, he made significant investment in MMS and he's isn't going to promote lysine use anytime soon. It's already a good income earner for him. MMS basically is free chlorine when it is activated. As proof, just buy the Potassium Iodide starch paper test to test for presence of free chlorine. It will turn dark brown in an activated solution of MMS. So people on MMS HAS to take potassium iodide as the free chlorine from MMS drives ot iodine..
9. Wearing the mask will protect against swine flu.
Nearly 90% of the flu is caught by the hand. Using hands to eat food or fingers in mouth, eyes and nose is the easiest way to get the flu. A flu virus can last 1 hours on the hand and on hard dry surfaces about 2 hours. The method of disinfection I used is a 1% hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, or both mixtures together, which is called peracetic acid. In China during the SARS outbreak, the Chinese stopped the epidemic with vinegar. In fact it was so popular that the vinegar prices for one bottle went as high as $100 per bottle. It therefore makes sense to wash your hands before eating and avoid touching mouth, eyes and ears. It helps to carry a weak 1% H2O2 with you or at least a bottle of vinegar, although the smell isn't so good with the vinegar. Clove oil is another one that kills the flu too and can be used as antiseptic as it is also a good antiviral, although the smell of clove can also be strong too.
10. The Swine flu scare is not real.
It is real and the numbers are much larger then what authorities say. However the real scare is to spread it and for people to get vaccinated and then it gets deadly. It eats up the lungs over long term flu. I am as yet trying to fine a cure to restore lungs after they have been eaten away by the flu. What I am currently looking is the lysine, methylene blue and the Ganmaoling chinese herbal preparations.
There is an article below that has some grain of truth, not completely, but my own posting has the same problem, but I am trying very hard!

Ionized Water Hydrochloric Acid for Swine Flu?
I came across this on a "Ukraine plague" (mutated H1N1 swine flu with receptor binding domain change, D225G -- see info pasted at bottom of this post) related website (ukraineplague.blogspot.com), and I'm wondering if Ted (or any others) can offer their opinions/speculations on the safety, potential effectiveness, and ease of home creation of this remedy:
In South Korea found a new way to fight the epidemic "new" influenza H1N1.
Scientists from Korean universities Ajou (Ajou University) and Yonsei University (Yonsei University) came to the conclusion that one of the most effective in combating the H1N1 virus tool is ozonized water with the addition of small amounts of hydrochloric acid. These outcomes of their research state that ions of chlorine will deactivate the virus, and the water washes away completely from his body. In the course of several experiments was taken 430 thousand virus H1N1, and they all died within five minutes after contact with acid ozonized water (acidic ozone water).
According to researchers, one ton of water to only 22 grams of concentrated hydrochloric acid, and this amount is sufficient to ensure that in the resulting liquid formed a sufficient number of charged chloride ions, which rapidly destroy the virus. In addition, received the acid environment perfect for disinfection of the organism.
"The costs required for manufacturing the funds are negligible compared with the creation of a vaccine - have told the authors of the study, Kwong Lee (Kwang Lee) and Khan Um (Han Uhm) in the pages of authoritative scientific publications Applied Physics Letters. - Moreover, ozonized acidic water can be produced on an industrial scale, fundamentally changing the situation with the spread of the H1N1 virus around the world. "
[additional info from http://www.recombinomics.com/News/11180904/Ukraine_344.html, suggesting that the H1N1 virus has mutated in the Ukraine, leading to a much higher incidence of the cytokine storm which rapidly destroys the lungs and kills: "Included in the sequences from 10 isolates were four HA sequences with the receptor binding domain change, D225G, which was found in the one throat and three lung samples. The change was not found in isolates from nasopharyngeal washes, suggesting D225G may lead to high concentrations of H1N1 in patient's lungs. The high concentration of virus leads to a cytokine storm that destroys the lungs in a few days."]

I need help ASAP for my 5 year old daughter. She has all the symptoms of H1N1 and is absolutely miserable. Her fever has not went over 102; but we are giving her Motrin every 6 hours. We are also doing Colloidal Silver, Vitamin C, and are currently trying egg whites on her feet to reduce the fever. She is miserable when I ask her to sit up to take something, she cries and says she can't. Anybody have a quick remedy that would be beneficial for my 5 year old? She is 40lbs.
