Natural Remedies for Chronic Viruses

Ross River Fever

Posted by Ross (Toowoomba, Queensland Australia) on 07/16/2012

Please help me with a possible cure remedy for Ross River Fever. There is no apparent medical cure other than old mother time which can leave you unwell for up to three years.

Regards, Ross

Olive Leaf extract. Take 2 capsules, three times a day, until the bottle is empty. It does not matter if you take them with or with out food.

Also during that time eat one Avocado a day. That will give your body glutathione to assist in powering the immune system.

Take a daily multi vitamin for the antioxidants. Be sure to choose one that has at least daily amount of 1,000 IU of vitamin D and 200 mcg of Selenium. Those will also assist in the a speedier recovery.

Looking forward to your update of a speedy recovery for future people who may unfortunately experience Ross River Fever.

Ross, Ive been severely ill, incapacitated with severe pain and got worse over 20 yrs after ross river. But I didnt know about fibromyalgia, cfs and chemicals. Take those seriously and you'll have a better chance than me. Apple cider vinegar, organic food, immune and liver supports you can look up on here and you should recover well. Perhaps check out if you have any food allergies, metal toxicities - get a hair analysis done.

Salt Water, Hydrogen Peroxide in Ears

On Monday I was feeling run down. By evening I had a sore throat, headache and felt terrible.

I was too tired to hunt down my netti pot, but I wanted to do what I could to kill any germs in my sinuses, throat and ears, primary points of germ introduction to the body and places where viruses replicate.

I put a teaspoon of salt into a mug with a cup of hot water. I snuffed it up into my sinuses and gargled with it a few times. I put hydrogen peroxide in my ears.

I repeated this before going to bed. I also drank a mug of vinegar tea (1 T. vinegar, 2-3 t. honey, hot water). I got a good night sleep (6.5 hours counts as good for me) and did feel much better when I woke up in the morning.

I continued my attack on viruses with my salt water and peroxide a few times during the day.

I felt fine by bedtime and have felt fine since.

I love cheap and easy remedies!

My mother was a strong advocate of salt water gargling, but I never saw the point. It just seemed too simple. I should have paid more attention to her wisdom!

You are so right, Mama! My mom was always into the really simple solutions: salt water gargle fixed just about anything, mud packs, H2O2, vinegar, coffee grounds. Seriously sometimes she'd go out and pick weeds and come up with something that worked. Let's remember all the old remedies for sure.

Ted's Remedy Reader Feedback

Hi Ted,

I was wondering if this sounds about right for viruses:

For the first 3 days take Aspirin (any mg suggestions?)

Take Zinc 50mg (either acetate, choloride or gluconate) for about a month max. You mentioned taking this in a crushed or chewed form..or powdered form...where can I get that?

Take 6 drops of 3% food grade h202 in 1 glass of water 4x a day

Followed by 1 fresh squeezed lemon or lime with 1/4 baking soda until fizz stops and then add water 3x a day

Take Magnesium supplements 250 mg a day

Take Chromium chloride, sodium vanadate and tungsten (should I take all 3 or just one, and if just one or all three how many mg?)

Would it be over kill to inhale the h202 as well?
What do you mean by salt form of mineral rather than organic form?

Do you think this remedy for 1 month could kill a low grade form of HPV?

Hey was wondering the same thing as you did you ever find out if that will cure herpes? I have genital herpes and have been trying mega dose VC and didn't seem to wrk as I got an outbreak after two weeks of doing the super dose with powdered ascorbate acid which ended up being about 34 grams a day and am down to just 21 grams a day now.

I have recently discovered that turmeric is one of the most helpful remedies you can take when you get a virus. The past few years, I have gotten a long, nagging cough following a cold virus, so I vowed this year that wasn't going to happen.

Since early December, I have had two viruses but was able to nip them in the bud with the homeopathic remedy Oscillococcinum (3 doses, spaced 6 hours apart), several doses of medicinal mushrooms called Host Defense My Community (one of my favorite daily supplements) and 1 turmeric capsule taken 3 times a day with plenty of water. Remarkably, no mucus, no cough, no nothing. My mild symptoms completely gone within 48 hours.

Please add the turmeric to your arsenal of remedies when you get a virus or tend to get a cough. Quite amazing.

Deirdre, I find it easier to just shake some turmeric (and ginger) into my smoothie.

I tried the Oscillococcinum when I got a virus in Chicago once. It worked great. I bought it at Target.

Vitamin C

Posted by Mactwo (Beatty, Oregon) on 02/23/2015

Vitamin C is the most powerful of supplements for all virus. All vitamins/minerals are important for the immune system and whole body health. I have been for 52 years. At 83 years and in excelent health.

Eat fruits with the supplements. Increases the effectiveness.

Few people understand the crippling effects to the immune system by toxic refined sugars, processed vegetable oils, junk foods, chemicals in processed foods, all soft drinks, soy, soy milk, microwave, deep fried foods and artificial sweeteners. The excess sugars in the body are used by fungus, yeasts, parasites, diseases to grow and replicate. Cause allergies, bipolar, depression, obesity. B 3 has a positive effect on depression, nerve damage and bipolar. Research???

Vitamin C and Vitamin E

Vitamin C and Vitamin E

At the beginning of a virus: take 3000 mg of Vitamin C along with one 400 I. U. softgel of Vitamin E.

I'm an R.N. And had not heard of this before until a friend of mine in healthcare mentioned a couple of years ago. Apparently Vitamin E has a synergistic effect on Vitamin C. 3000 mg of Vitamin might sound like a lot; but remember C is water soluble, so what your body doesn't use, you'll pee the rest out. Granted Vitamin E is not water soluble, but I only take this concoction when I begin to feel sick. I'll take it as soon as the symptoms begin, then when I go to bed, when I wake up the next morning, and usually one more dose several hours later. I typically don't need to take it more than that as my symptoms disappear and whatever it was that was starting never culminated into a cold or anything else. You can buy Vitamin C where each tablet is 1000 mg; so you only need to take three of them. They're large and granted Vitamin C is kind of bitter, even if they're flavored tablets and the larger ones tend to be more expensive; but I prefer to do that as opposed to taking several of the smaller ones that are a smaller dose per tablet.

Anyone I've mentioned this to by the way, has eventually gotten back with me telling me that this worked for them.

I've only recently returned to nursing full-time as I had been a FT CSI while working PT as an R.N. For 13 years... So I'm still in the process of building up my immunity level. Most people in healthcare, after working full-time for 6 months, will have never been sicker those first 6 months, and then suddenly, it seems you just don't get anything. In the meantime, I'll stick with C & E regimen. It's worked every time without fail so there has to be something to it. I've been using it for about two years now since my friend told me about it.

Thanks for reading, and I hope this works for anyone else who may try it.
