The best way to help your body protect itself against Ebola

The best way to help your body protect itself against Ebola (or any virus or bacteria)

(NaturalNews) With the threat of the Ebola virus spreading, there is a need to understand what natural options are readily available to you in case you don’t want to be subjected to conventional medical treatments and infected patients in hospitals. The only proven system to help eradicate the Ebola virus is your body’s immune system, and it is of primary importance to start strengthening its response now to give yourself the best chance of successfully fighting off an infection.

Work with your body’s natural defenses

The only way to work with your body’s natural defenses is to give it what it requires in order to function at optimal performance. Conventional medical wisdom claims that man-made remedies such as vaccines are superior to those provided by nature, but it doesn’t take a scientist to understand that the toxic chemicals and preservatives injected into the body along with antigens is not a legitimate way to improve immunity.

To improve your immunity, you must improve your relationship with nature and the medicine it provides, which has been proven to keep people healthy for thousands of years. In this case, a focus on healing foods and herbs that have strong antibacterial and antiviral properties is of primary importance, along with improving immune system function and eliminating foods that suppress it.

Antibacterial foods, herbs, and solutions to begin consuming regularly

Even though Ebola is a virus, it only makes sense to start clearing out any harmful bacteria in your digestive system in order for your immune system to function properly. This will allow it to do its job more efficiently, which is a must have when dealing with more deadly infections such as Ebola.

Antibacterial foods and herbs to consider, include: Garlic, Onion, Turmeric (curcumin), Ginger, Lemon, Cayenne, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Clove, Cranberry, Calendula, Echinacea, Oregon grape root ….

The distinctive morality of ebola

Ebola does not really hide. It is transmitted by the obviously sick and the dead. Moreover if transmission stopped tomorrow, it would disappear completely within a couple of months. In so far as it is cryptic at all it is because of a short asymptomatic incubation period and early symptoms that can be mistaken for other diseases.

As the experts have said repeatedly, it is a disease we know how to control by contract tracing and isolation of symptomatic individuals. The fact that the recent outbreak has run out of control comes down to moral decisions and in fact its spread involves moral decisions at nearly every step. It is also in an important sense black and white. There is no accommodation possible. Ebola needs to be controlled or it will just grow and grow until it overwhelms those trying to fight it and then the rest of us.

Measles Vaccine Wipes Out Cancer in Groundbreaking Test

By Stan Schroeder

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have completed a groundbreaking new test: They knocked widespread blood cancer into remission with a single massive blast of measles vaccine.

Stacy Erholtz, who was suffering from an advanced stage of blood cancer, recovered thanks to an intravenous injection of the measles virus, which was sufficient to overwhelm the cancer’s natural defenses, the StarTribune reports

As far as clinical trials go, this was a small test because it only had two subjects. But lead researcher Dr. Stephen Russell told StarTribune it’s a promising start.

“It’s a landmark. We’ve known for a long time that we can give a virus intravenously and destroy metastatic cancer in mice. Nobody’s shown that you can do that in people before,” he said.

The viruses bind to cancer cells and use them to replicate. The process destroys the cells, and the body’s immune system attacks what’s left since it’s marked as viral material. This test also gave doctors a benchmark for the virus dose needed to reduce cancer in patients — 100 billion infectious units instead of the standard 10,000 units.

There are still hurdles to overcome — like the body’s own defenses. Once the immune system has experience fighting a virus, it’s not effective a second time. The body attacks it before it can begin taking over cancer cells.

Doctors will also need to do more testing on more patients. They plan to expand their trials by September.

Bee Venom Destroys Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

Nanoparticles carrying a toxin found in bee venom can destroy human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) while leaving the surrounding cells unharmed. The research was conducted by the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The Nanoparticles carry melittin, which is the principal active component of bee venom. Melittin fuses with the HIV virus and destroys it’s protective envelope while molecular bumpers prevent the nanoparticles from harming the body’s normal cells. Bee venom is known to disrupt cellular walls and destroy tumour cells as well.

Bee venom contains a potent toxin called melittin that can poke holes in the protective envelope that surrounds HIV, and other viruses. Large amounts of free melittin can cause a lot of damage. Indeed, in addition to anti-viral therapy, the paper’s senior author, Samuel A. Wickline, MD, the J. Russell Hornsby Professor of Biomedical Sciences, has shown melittin-loaded nanoparticles to be effective in killing tumor cells.

The new study shows that melittin loaded onto these nanoparticles does not harm normal cells. That’s because Hood added protective bumpers to the nanoparticle surface. When the nanoparticles come into contact with normal cells, which are much larger in size, the particles simply bounce off. HIV, on the other hand, is even smaller than the nanoparticle, so HIV fits between the bumpers and makes contact with the surface of the nanoparticle, where the bee toxin awaits. (1)

Most anti-HIV drugs inhibit the virus’s ability to replicate. This is an anti-replication strategy that does nothing to stop the infection, and many strains of the virus have found ways around these drugs and continue reproducing. Given this discovery, a new vaginal gel could possibly be used in places where HIV is prominent. It can be used as a preventative measure to stop the initial infection and prevent the spread of HIV. The bee venom HIV study was published a several days ago in the journal Antiviral Therapy.

More than 34 million people are living with HIV/AIDS worldwide, and over 3 million of them are under the age of 15. Everyday, thousands of people contract HIV around the world.

Simple vinegar test slashed cervical cancer death rates by one-third in a remarkable study

Vinegar cancer test saves lives, India study finds

By MUNEEZA NAQVI and MARILYNN MARCHIONE

MUMBAI, India (AP) — A simple vinegar test slashed cervical cancer death rates by one-third in a remarkable study of 150,000 women in the slums of India, where the disease is the top cancer killer of women.

Doctors reported the results Sunday at a cancer conference in Chicago. Experts called the outcome “amazing” and said this quick, cheap test could save tens of thousands of lives each year in developing countries by spotting early signs of cancer, allowing treatment before it’s too late.

Usha Devi, one of the women in the study, says it saved her life.

“Many women refused to get screened. Some of them died of cancer later,” Devi said. “Now I feel everyone should get tested. I got my life back because of these tests.”

Pap smears and tests for HPV, a virus that causes most cervical cancers, have slashed cases and deaths in the United States. But poor countries can’t afford those screening tools.

Situation dire as spending on health declines

By Nasir Iqbal

ISLAMABAD: The Economic Survey 2010-11 has painted a bleak picture of the health sector, particularly with regard to the infectious and other diseases.

According to the survey report, the HIV epidemic has moved from a low-prevalence to concentrated state with 90,000 to 100,000 people testing positive for the virus — about 0.1 per cent of the total population.

As the situation unfolds, the crisis among high-risk groups, especially the users of injected drugs, is getting deeper. The total number of full-blown AIDS cases stands at 3,050. A recent survey among the high-risk groups indicates an average HIV prevalence of 20 per cent among consumers of injected drugs.

The survey noted that Pakistan still ranked eighth among the countries with the highest burden of tuberculosis (TB) in the world. The disease accounts for 5.1 per cent of the total national disease burden.

About drug abuse, which is spreading fast and affecting the country in many ways, the survey said the menace entailed heavy social and economic costs. ….

Herpes simplex virus 1, Genital Herpes- 2, varicella zoster virus and cold sores

Herpes simplex virus 1, 2, (in Sindhi language Tap Mut or Sur Sur), varicella zoster and cold sores infections are all belongs the Herpes virus group. From centuries, viruses are the enemies of human kind. Genital Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease (STD). This disease is responsible for the painful, irritating and embarrassing outbreaks. The virus persists in the nerve and it considered incurable, though there is much you can do to inactivate the virus. Harpies Simplex Virus- 1 (HSV-1) is causes cold sores on the lips and the cornea of eye. HSV-2 causes genital occurrences. Harpies Simplex Virus (HSV-2) reactivated by immune deficiency, diabetes, cancer, depression, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, bipolar disorder, other disorders, anxiety, hormonal changes, during periods (menses), physical or emotional stress. Periods (menses) also increase the activity of HSV. Therefore, be cautious during menses take antiviral medicines such as acyclovir, Famcyclovir or Valacyclovir or Zovirex.

Now the scientists know that human immune system is so powerful to overcome the Herpes simplex accordingly.

This may help to keep prevent from outbreaks:

Avoid: Almonds, Wall nuts, chocolate, peanuts, Peas, sunflower seeds, other kinds of nuts’ and seeds’ protein trigger the Herpes virus re-occurrences. Corn based products (corns, pop corns, corn oil) are high in arganine and increase the HSV activity in cells. Those who are getting re-occurrences of Herpes simplex infection frequently should avoid eating all kinds of nuts and chocolate. Avoid tomatoes and green peas, and also avoid cooking in vegetable oil, coconut oil, corn oil, canola oil too. Use butter for cooking. Avoid foods that contain arganine. Chocolate is full of arganine. Avoid sugar and sugar products (Sweets).

This may help to keep your immune system high, it will help prevent outbreaks:

This may help in Genital Harpies Simplex virus I, II (Tap mut or Sur Sur) and varicella Zoster- Take extra vitamin C such as 500 mg vitamin C two times a day every day to boost your immune system, chewable vitamin C may damage your teeth therefore take non-chewable vitamin C and Vitamin E 400 IU daily whole of life.) Vitamin C works better than any anti-viral pills (acyclovir, Famcyclovir, Valacyclovir). Take Magnicium 10mg, B-complex 25 mg daily will help immune system, Calcium 100mg daily. Lemons are good source of vitamin C and fish is good source of vitamin E.

Lysine is good to prevent form Herpes Simplex virus re-occurrence. Lentils and legumes are the best source of lysine. Bee propolis with lemon ointment (lemon bam) also helps to prevent from re-occurring. Turmeric (in Hindi language Haldi) and garlic also helps to reduce re-occurring of harpes outbreaks. Mix water in Turmeric powder and make paste of turmeric put some drops of lemon and apply the affected area. Boiled eggs are good source of lysine, eat boiled eggs to prevent Herpes. Garlic and Aloevera has some effectiveness against Herpes.

Cut off refine carbohydrates/carbs, starchy foods, Sugar and sugar products, rice and rice products, potato and potato products. Eat deep water fish, drink fresh clean water and yogurt early in the morning every day. Add red onion, garlic, ginger, and turmeric in your food. Mix the lemon drops and tincture together in equal parts and apply the affected area.

Do not burst the blister/bubble of harpies with pin or any thing. Wash the affected area with hydrogen per oxide available at grocery stores and pharmacies with out prescription. Try not to touch the affected area with bare hands. Use gloves, or tissue paper to save your hand. Do not expose the affected area to sun or sun shine. Eat fresh washed raw green leafy and colorful vegetable and fruits and drink moderate amount of fresh clean water every day.

If the blisters from Herpes appear close to the eye or occur on the tip or side of the nose, see a doctor immediately. Because Herpes can end up causing vision problems if it involves nerves around the eye.
