Vitamin D

Studies have shown that those with higher Vitamin D blood levels are less likely to contract the typical avian influenza most of us are familiar with. This is why most get the flu in the winter and spring, when sunlight and blood Vitamin D levels are at their lowest. The results may be similar for the swine flu.


Vitamins, Apple Cider Vinegar

Ted,

I am so very very thankful for you, I have influenza I was in the ER Sunday night- could not breathe they did take a chest xray and said my lungs looked good other then the blotch on the right lung from the influenza. They tested my blood to make sure of no clots and they gave me oxygen while there and vicodin to take home. However they could not give me anything else because it had already been 5 days. I was taking an antibiotic I had in my cupboard it is for upper respitory and also phemonia, big mistake as it did not help. As I know something that is viral can't be helped by antibiotics. I have been taking at least 8 vitamin D3's well I started that yesterday, boiled some water with ACV in it yesterday and inhaled it into my lungs, and then I also drank some ACV in tepid water. I also been doing Mega vitamin C (well it is called ermergenC) 1000 mg in one glass.

Needless to say I am feeling much better and I have you to thank I wish I could hug you seriously. I felt as though I was dieing, I do not think even my family realizes how serious respitory influenza really is. The only thing is I keep getting the reoccurring headaches I mean I been taking advil for it and wearing sunglasses as the sun or bright lightes make that worse. Gosh I am 38 yrs old and I have never had something that has made me so ill in all my life. If you have any suggestions for the headaches please let me know. And again I thank you so much for caring enough about the human race that you would share the knowledge you have with others to heal from this man-made virus. Hugs from Michigan...

Thank you, Erin


Yogurt

Give small amount 3 times a day for 1 to 2 days. Appetite should return. Thought of it because after viral infections my family always eats yogurt which really helps people tolerate food sooner. It worked with my cat, too.


Zinc

When I was young and otherwise healthy I would get 2 or 3 terrible colds (flu) per yr. Fast forward with aging and a severe and chronic toxic condition, I might get 1 cold per yr and then only briefly. I take nutritional supplements by the handfuls but one that seems the absolute essential immune support is Zinc. Zinc is one mineral that is terribly lacking in the western diet AND seems to be the cornerstone of the immune system, so it is almost necessary to supplement in every person to prevent such as the flu. A healthy Thymus is also critical. Some researchers believe that the power of Zinc is the strengthening of the Thymus.
