Anise Seed Tea
Hi everyone, one cup of warm (not boiled) anise seed tea every morning can prevent swine flu illness. as I got this information also it was written that the known medicine (tamiflu's) main ingredient is anise. Good health everyone!

Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar definately cut the symptoms of H1N1 virus for me. I took 2 cap fulls of ACV with 1-2 Tblsp of Natural Honey...let the kettle boil and cool down to just hot. Poured in the hot water and stired! I drank this every 3 hours the whole first day.The flu came in wave's, but because I took the ACV at the onset of the symptoms... I'm definatley sure I nipped it in the bud because the symptoms are gone and its been 2 days! SO TAKE IT AS SOON AS YOU FEEL IL.
I'm still taking it but only a couple of times a day just to keep virus standing down and make sure it doesn't come back.
ACV IS THE BEST FOR SO MANY THINGS!
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!!!!

Swine Flu Cases: CBS reports CDC deception on swine flu cases
I'm sorry, but I don't see why this should matter to us personally using Earth Clinic. One of my friends was killed at a physics conference by the swine flu. Another of my friends at the university was almost killed by the swine flu by a cytokine storm on his lungs. I developed chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia after the swine flu. It is quite clear to me that it is serious and should be taken seriously and dealt with via NATURAL means such as AHCC, vitamin C, etc. as soon as possible to prevent serious complications, and not pay attention to the political aspects which really don't have any implications for our health.
(Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France)
Sorry Ellen but I personally found the article interesting although we have known that for quite awhile here in Europe. Fair enough, it is not about natural healing but it alerts people for what is going on. I suppose some postings will interest some people more than others, that is the way things are!
Ted, Thanks for the tip on using aspirin to fight H1N1. I have tried it and it works, and I have not used aspirin or any other drug in years.
I am concerned that people would resort to aspirin as a cure. Aspirin is an anti-febrile agent and reduces temperature. The human body elevates temperature to prevent virus material from replicating then the immune system identifies and clears the virus.
Higher temperature inhibits the virus rna from combining during the reproductive cycle which is why we get a fever.
Aspirin is responsible for more cases of pneumonia than doctors care to admit.
Why would anyone in their right mind fight our own body's mechanism for preventing disease - something that has evolved over many thousands of years to a state of perfection.
Most people are mineral & vitamin deficient, couple this with a serious lack of good gut bacteria and a westernised sugar diet and you have total immune disfunction.
If aspirin is required for other ailments such as angina, poor circulation etc - then cayenne pepper is more effective and is also a pain killer.
B3 or niacin is also effective, improves blood flow, dilates arteries, regulates cholesterol, helps clear arterial congestion, but does produce what is known as the niacin flush which is harmless flushing but has none of the liver damaging effects of statins.
Many people here were cured of pneumonia using aspirin when other supplements and medicines are not available. Lysine works, but is not available. I don't use niacin, it causes liver damage especially from time release niacin. The facts you mentioned are contradictory.
The B3 I used here is niacinamide.
My sister is alive today because of aspirin. She had a severe pneumonia and the doctors already given up on her and was ready to call the morgue. My father slipped in aspirin. It saved her life. She was only 2 or 3 years old at the time. I was cured of measles and it was a one day cure with that aspirin. Imagine small pox!
Yes some people are allergic to aspirin, but not everyone. When a person is dying of fever at 104, they may die, just from the fever itself, when no other medications were working at all. And I have tried tamiflu, it simply doesn't work in advanced swine flu cases.
Perhaps you have better cures, I would be happy to hear, especially when a person is living in an isolated rural area with a temperature of 103-104 F.
i think aspirin is somewhat of a miracle cure for a lot of things! i remember when i would young and was starting to come down with something - she would give me aspirin at bedtime and the next day i would be fine.
aspirin is (or at least used to me) made from white willow bark and maybe this is why it helps???
Aspirin: Swine Flu/Flu
I'd give Aspirin a yea for Swine Flu/Flu. Altho, I never got tested, so it could've been a really bad cold, flu or swine flu.
40 yr old dude here. I started feeling bad on Thursday. The next day I was extremely tired, congested head, sore throat. I could barely get out of bed. Not much of an appetite. I tried D3, Zinc Lozenges, Jean's Tomato Tea, Gargled with Cayenne water, Hydrogen in ears... nothing seemed to work. (I didn't overdo these solutions, I did them once or twice a day depending on the remedy).
By Day 3, Saturday I was still out of it. I had muscle aches (and a congested ear) but honestly I've had worse body aches from previous flus so I still wasn't certain what I had. It was Day 4, when I got a fever of 100.2 that I suspected I had the flu vs. a cold. (I also read that nowadays all flus are pretty much the swine flu. I think it's really spreading fast.) That's when I tried the Aspirin cure. I did it again the next day because the fever came back in 24 hrs time. By Day 6 I felt better. No fever. But still congested head. More energy tho. And Day 7, I definitely feel stronger. Still a little congested but stronger. Able to get things done, concentrate.
Now I didn't start to take Aspirin until Day 4/5, so one could say my flu/cold ran its course and of course by Day 7 I would feel better. But that Fever was making me feel miserable so I said what do I have to lose. Plus I read that one doesn't usually have fevers during colds and I found it weird I got a fever AFTER having symptoms for 3 days. I would try the Aspirin cure again.
here's what I took:
Day 4: I took 1 325mg Aspirin, crushed in half cup of water, every hour... for 3 hrs.
Day 5: I took 1 325mg Aspirin, crushed in half cup of water, every hour... for 4 hrs.
I love this site by the way.
I have had, what I believe to be the swine flu. There was just ton's of fluid running down my throat, my ears were congested, and then my lungs were filling up. Taking a lot of vitamin c, I would have a good day and then a bad day.
Allergy medicine didn't help. Although the drainage was like allergies. I couldn't sleep at night because there was so much drainage; I would have to cough to clear my throat and then wake up.
In misery and desperation I tried the aspirin and it helped. I used a brand of powered aspirin here and made a concoction with powered vitamin c.
The really weird thing is this. I had preeclampsia with both of my pregnancies. The reaction I had with this flu was exactly like my preeclampsia. And aspirin is used with preeclampsia.
My theory is that what ever immune or other physical reaction that women have with pre-eclampsia; this swine flu is the same type of reaction.
My 19 yr old daughter was diagnosed with Flu Wednesday Oct 7th having 104 fever and typical symptoms. Her college roommate is recovering from Swine Flu which she had for a couple weeks. Daughter came home after doctor visit was prescribed Tamiflu which she took dosage as instructed. Once I came home Wednesday evening I researched Earth Clinic and read Ted's aspirin remedy.
I dissolved 500 mg aspirin in water and gave her one Vitamin C tablet with instructions to do the same every hour until she fell asleep. She slept well and yesterday all symptoms were dramatically improved and had no fever. She took aspirin/vitamin C remedy a couple times today and went back to school AFTER ONLY TWO DAYS !!!!
Regardless of naysayers, if you or someone you love (over 12 yrs old) has the FLU by all means try this remedy! I am totally convinced and feel grateful to have this knowledge in case my wife or I come down with symptoms.
My eight year old came down with cough, fever (103), body aches. Gave her aspirin yesterday starting with 325 mg at Noon followed by 1/2 gram of vitamin C (in juice hourly). Fever responded (99.4). Half an aspirin every two hrs (-/ 170 mg). Backed off on vitamin C at 8 due to gastro upset (which I was shooting for, she hadn't had a BM for two days). She had a small BM before dinner. But, threw up dinner-she was hungry, but tummy wasn't ready.
Last aspirin at bedtime with cough medicine. Slept fine.
This morning freaked out about the aspirin due to Reyes Syndrome. So Aspirin until noon wanted monitor for new symptoms. She was hot this morning with bloodshot eye. Gave prune/apple juice because gastro upset continued with flatuence but no BM. She had a sizable BM an hour or so later. She ate, singing.
Sorry so long, but despite my Reyes Syndrome freak out, the aspirin seems to be effective. Make sure to make them drink (at the top of the hr I give water and juice) so as to flush the system and keep the bowels open.
Hope this helpful.
Dear Ted, I really like Earth Clinic and have learned a lot from it that I share with others. Your article about aspirin for the flu really intrigued me, and I want you to know I believe you and that you are sincere, but tonight on Coast to Coast Am some guy was talking and saying that whatever you do don't take aspirin for the bird flu as the doctors during 1918 prescribed it all the time as they really had no cure, and that this caused people to die quicker. But then again they also did not know how to take it. I don't believe this guy but maybe he is just trying to put out false propaganda. I wanted you to know, and if you care to respond to this e-mail Thank You very much for all that you do! I'm in California.
The truth is the popularity in aspirin was the very fact that 1918 Spanish flu viruse STOPPED the epidemic. It didn't just stopped by itself. I learned this only AFTER I have found that independently that aspirin did kill the bird flu, swine flu and dengue fever. I have as yet looking over the possibility of use in Hanta viruses, but that I don't know. What the aspirin does is it just digest the viruses when I look over a very high powered electron microscope during my student days even in very weak solutions. May I also remind you that I have seen (I can't say I cured for legal reason) that I have this person with a two year Chlamydia, which resists ALL KINDS of antibiotics (you name it, azithromycin, terramycine, amoxcillin, etc) and I finally gave up and aspirin was tried. The dose was 500 mg of aspirin, taken hourly for four tablets, each tablets is DISSOLVED in a cup of warm water. It was completely gone. The uniqueness of the aspirin is the salicyclic acid portion that dissolves any bacteria and many viruses sight. The chlamydia NEVER came back! Imagine a man with chlamydia eating up his testicles and you can imagine the pain he's suffering with the Chlamydia.
People who goes to talk shows are likely have vested financial interests, I DON'T go to any talk shows and rather tell the truth under the radar or scrutiny of the pharma industry and I think this is the best approach for me. For the unbelievers, I have plenty of people here who can vouch that the aspirin did work and it's synergistic with the vitamin C. It wasn't easy finding the cure, but once it's found I hope people will find some benefit, especially the fact that vaccinations are dangerous with highly dangerous bacteria and viruses, and they are live bacteria and viruses. Hence, to neutralize these, I only expect at least just taking ASPIRIN (or lysine) hourly for only 4 times in one day. It's the bare minimum so that the vaccination should it be mandatory there is A WAY AROUND this problem. The use of digestive enzyme works too, but it is not nearly as dramatic as lysine or aspirin. Perhaps I have to look into this further with dose/frequency issue.
Thank you for your support!
Why some people put down aspirin is strictly from not understanding anything, nor bothering to read about it. Reyes Syndrome is VERY RARE in people over 18 look it up, read it on the internet. It is pretty much only something that affects the young under 18 .If it was as bad as they say would they be telling adults to take an aspirin a day? Use your head before you repeat something you have heard. The great miracle of the internet is here use it, do research. If you are giving it to a child then think twice it may be dangerous, but for someone who is an adult even research and doctors are not against it.
(South Bay, California)
Thank you Candy, I absolutely agree with you. An overly-hysterical response to a great cure for the flu. Give me aspirin any day over acetaminophen and ibuprofen, which can cause liver damage.
To Kathy from Dubois: You say that what bothers you is that Ted doesn't warn about Reyes Syndrome, etc.; here is a quote from Ted's "As a standard warning, people who have problems of inability to tolerate aspirin, probably know anyway, such as Reye's syndrome which should be avoided. Another is people with malaria and hemorrhagic fever should avoid aspirin use. A suitable substitute for aspirin, should people have intolerance of aspirin, is hydrogen peroxide 3%, one capful in one liter of drinking water, taken at 1/2 glass taken every 30 minutes for a total doses of 10, also completely kills off the virus. However, some vitamin C helps a lot, whether it's using the hydrogen peroxide or the aspirin or lysine when getting a cure for flu. You don't need vaccines. Hydrogen peroxide doesn't seem to work as fantastic as lysine or aspirin, perhaps because the vitamin C was needed on top of that, but it does work too."
I don't know Ted and I haven't had flu (Thank God), but I just thought to make this observation.
(In The Sticks, Nevada)
With all due respect to Ted, I have included the info below, because I think we all need to research a bit on our home health cures -- especially when exploring cures for more serious problems. I noticed the dosage used in 1918 was much higher than what Ted recommends, but as I received this info today, I thought it was worth sharing. These comments are clipped from a newsletter I receive from Mayer Eisenstein MD,JD,MPH. Here is the link to his website: http://www.homefirst.com/
Salicylates and Pandemic Influenza Mortality, 1918-1919 Pharmacology, Pathology, and Historic Evidence
Clinical Infectious Diseases 2009;49:000-000
Clinical Infectious Diseases 2009;49:000-000
Karen M. M.D.
The high case fatality rate especially among young adults during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic is incompletely understood. Although late deaths showed bacterial pneumonia, early deaths exhibited extremely "wet," sometimes hemorrhagic lungs.
The hypothesis presented herein is that aspirin contributed to the incidence and severity of viral pathology, bacterial infection, and death, because physicians of the day were unaware that the regimens (8.0-31.2 g per day) produce levels associated with hyperventilation and pulmonary edema in 33% and 3% of recipients, respectively. Recently, pulmonary edema was found at autopsy in 46% of 26 salicylate intoxicated adults. Experimentally, salicylates increase lung fluid and protein levels and impair mucociliary clearance.
In 1918, the US Surgeon General, the US Navy, and the Journal of the American Medical Association recommended use of aspirin just before the October death spike. If these recommendations were followed, and if pulmonary edema occurred in 3% of persons, a significant proportion of the deaths may be attributable to aspirin.
Dr. Eisenstein's Comments:
This evidence from The British Medical Journal shows that antipyretics such as Tylenol, aspirin (Bufferin, Bayer, Excedrin), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, Nuprin), ketoprofen (Actron, Orudis), and naproxen (Aleve), should not be given for any type of flu and may be responsible for many of the deaths associated with the H1N1 Flu.
In 1918, the US Surgeon General, the US Navy, and the Journal of the American Medical Association recommended use of aspirin just before the October death spike. This recommendation may have been responsible for a significant proportion of the deaths.
1. Vitamin D levels greater than 60ng/ml
2. No aspirin, Tylenol, Aleve etc. for fever
3. Lots of fluids and chicken soup
4. And "NO" Swine or Seasonal flu vaccines
Better, but not cured. My sinuses started draining on Sunday by Monday I felt like I was coming down with something. I did the aspirin remedy on Monday afternoon and felt better the next day. I started feeling crappy again on Wednesday and did the Aspirin remedy again. I felt good for another couple of days, but then it came back again. I did the aspirin remedy a third time, but I felt like the virus moved down to my chest. I was wheezing and coughing up gunk and it scared me so I started taking penicilin that I had picked up in Mexico. I took 1000 mg every four hours and am finally feeling better as of today (10 days into this virus)
My wife had the same symptoms I did and she took the aspirin remedy and it worked well for her. She took the aspirin remedy as soon as she felt the first symptoms and only took it one day.
I think the key to this remedy is starting it as soon as you get the first sign of a cold. I've learned a lot from this board. Thanks
(San Jose, Ca)
Update: 100% cured from the swine flu. I can't prove it, but my wife and I had all the symptoms of the swine flu and now it's gone. The aspirin works in my book.
I know a person that got the flu a week before I did and she didn't do the aspirin treatment and now she has developed pneomonia for the second time in two weeks. She has been under a doctors care from the beginning.
I just tried the aspirin for flu. I have had coughing, sneezing, stuffy sinus, running nose, fatigue, achyness, watery eyes, and sore throat on and off for a few days. I've been living on vitamin C, ginseng, marshmallow root capsules, activated charcoal, and chicken curry soup for a few days. Initially I misread the bottle of aspirin and took 3 325mg tablets for the first two doses plus one dose of 1,000mg ascorbic acid. Subsequently I took 2 325mg tablets of aspirin. Four doses in all. Also took ACV in some water and vitamin C. All the symptoms are gone except for a stuffy sinus and a hint of cough/sneeze. Taking dose #5... 3 325mg tablets as I weigh considerably more than 120lbs.
(Manitowoc, Wisconsin, USA)
After trying the aspirin cure last night the symptoms are much improved. There is still considerable stuffyness, a *tiny* bit of sore throat, and some coughing. The coughing is more productive. The sneezing and watery eyes are gone. Don't know if it is the flu. I weigh considerably more than Ted's 120lb estimation, but taking so much aspirin seemed potentially dangerous. My head was feeling swimmy after taking it. Much much improved though. Thank you, Ted!!
EC: Thank you for pointing this out, Connie!
The maximum dosage of aspirin per day is 4g according to this website: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_maximum_dosage_of_aspirin_per_day
Maximum 4g daily.
Aspirin tablets dispersible 300mg: ADULT, 300-900mg, every 4-6 hours.
CHILD "Do not give to children under 12 years, and avoid up to and including 15 years of age if feverish".
From the Mayo Clinic's website:
Side effects and complications of taking aspirin include:
* Hemorrhagic stroke. While daily aspirin can help prevent a clot-related stroke, it may increase your risk of a bleeding stroke (hemorrhagic stroke).
* Gastrointestinal bleeding. Daily aspirin use increases your risk of developing a stomach ulcer. And, if you have a bleeding ulcer, taking aspirin will cause it to bleed more, perhaps to a life-threatening extent.
* Allergic reaction. If you're allergic to aspirin, taking any amount of aspirin can trigger a serious allergic reaction.
* Ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and hearing loss. Too much aspirin (overdosing) can cause tinnitus and eventual hearing loss in some people.
(Manitowoc, Wisconsin, USA)
I don't recall. I think it was a tablet with bioflavonoids. I had also mixed some apple cider vinegar with ascorbic acid powder and was drinking that just before I tried it. Today I'm still clearing my throat a lot and have a mostly stuffy sinus with drainage. Maybe I'll do it again and see how it goes. I'm nervous about the aspirin's blood thinning ability at such a high dose.
My H1N1 experience:
Extremely sore throat---Drank cayenne tea (1/4 teaspoon cayenne in 8 oz. cup of hot water), sore throat was gone within the hour, but I had to drink some more cayenne tea at the end of the day and also in the morning of the second day. After that, the sore throat was gone.
Runny nose/Stuffy nose---Nasal/sinus rinse a few times a day (1/4 teaspoon sea salt dissolved in cup of warm water. My ears had started to plug, but I feel the nasal rinse kept me from getting a full-blown ear infection. If you try this nasal rinse, don't do it before going to bed, because sometimes your nose will drain a bit more a short while after doing the rinse. I would also recommend a daily or twice-daily nasal rinse as a matter of routine, just to keep the passages clear and clean.
Fever---I'm not one to get high fevers, so I didn't take anything for the fever. If it had risen above 102F I would have taken aspirin. The fever lasted about 4 days.
Very bad "wet" cough--After a few days, my lungs were congested, so I drank more cayenne tea. This loosened the congestion and I was able to cough it up. I realize that this symptom could have been very severe, but I think the pneumonia vaccine I got last month may have kept that in control.
By the third day, I also started to eat quite a bit of organic soup, to which I added lots of onion and crushed,fresh garlic. And, as always, I drank plenty of filtered water and green tea.
I missed a week of work, and after ten days from the onset of the first symptoms, the only thing I'm dealing with is a very slight, occasional cough. I didn't really regain my strength until a day or so ago, but I don't know if that's purely because of the severity of the virus or because I also have Lupus. I'm just thankful that I didn't end up in the hospital, as so many others have.
My usual diet is 80% organic and I don't have meat or chicken more than once or twice a week, and that is in small amounts. I eat lots of fruit and vegetables, as well as whole grains. Filtered water is a must, as is green tea. I've had very few bouts of illness since I changed to a healthier diet.
Well, I've been sick for about 4 weeks now. 1st, I caught the flu (I think it was H1N1, but they don't test u 4 it in the ER unless u r in one of the critical groups). There is a shot u can get if u catch the flu, it's called lami-flu, but u must get it within 48hrs of getting flu symptoms. Then, because my immune system was weakened, my flu progressed to pneumonia. Dr gave me an antibiotic, that helped some, but now going into my 4th week of illness, I'm getting a sore throat. So I stumbled upon this website looking for sore throat remedies. Today I will B using a combination of several remedies I've seen on ppl using.
I tried adding cayenne pepper to my coffee this morning- INSTANT RELIEF! It was delicious, too. Now I am sipping on noodle soup with lots of cayenne. It's very soothing. Will try other ideas thru out day. Will report again (won't be as long- lol).
To President Obama, Dear Friends, Fellow Americans
From Barry W. Bittinger Sr
My life was saved by a mistake I made (concerning Garlic) Im now trying to inform you about that mistake
I Know of the flu threat of many innocent fellow Americans you are now making an effort to defend against serious attacks of Diseases, Swine flu especially. I can help by suggesting something that has been very helpful to me and my family
This has been used before by other countries to defend against similar attacts of diseases.
I am aware of an emergency remedy to use against swine flu, also now known as H1N1,: I am speaking of GARLIC &/OR GARLIC OIL, also known as "Russian Penicillan." Garlic is readily available and can easily be obtained by most anyone.
I am a cancer survivor because of a mistake I made (with GARLIC). I was dying of cancer when I made the mistake that saved my life. My daughter, Barrie Lynn had strongly suggested that I take a clove of garlic a week to cleanse my blood. I mostly ignored anything about garlic until the cancerous growth in my right underarm lymph nodes turned into blood poison. But instead of eating a clove, I misunderstood what was a clove and mistakenly ate the whole bulb, I ATE THE WHOLE THING AT ONCE!, THE WHOLE BULB OF GARLIC! This mistake immediately changed my life expectancy from dying in only a matter of hours to still alive now some 16 yrs later. Read my story at www.earthclinic.com under Garlic Bulbs.
I now know and I now understand why garlic is so powerful against a disease or flu or sickness. Garlic alone has been used against an epidemic before in Russia. It is called "Russia Penicillin" because transports of garlic flown in to turn the tide of an epidemic.
Garlic is so powerful and effective because it can still work wonders (miraculously), not only as a whole food, but also when used as garlic oil - applied topically on the exterior of the body, especially on the feet.
I am writing you this message as an emergency safeguard that all people can use, even on an infant by way of drops of garlic oil on an infant's feet. It will save life harmlessly, painlessly, miraculously, and effectively.
My name is Barry W. Bittinger, SR. I am known as "Boone Doggie" by my friends who now call me "Doctor Garlic" because I tell everyone I can. And because of garlic alone several others have escaped death!
You may call my garlic Cry to help you "Boone Doggie Penicillin."
I am also aware of the power of these new diseases to reach anyone no matter what there status is, from presidents to the children - even the bum on the street, there is no distinction of nobility, we are all at risk, and many of us will die
As a last comment on this important letter I am sending to you. I am telling you that GARLIC CAN AND WILL STOP THE THREAT IMEDIATELY, even before the vacine arrives and is available Garlic can help You and will save you!
From Your concerned friend and fellow American.
