your immune system ..that is the best vaccine..¡¡
Pandemic influenza is a global outbreak of disease from a new influenza A virus that is unlike past influenza viruses. Because people have not been infected with a similar virus in the past, most or all people will not have any natural immunity (protection) to a new pandemic virus.
Why is pandemic influenza so serious?
Because most or all people would not have immunity to a new pandemic virus, large numbers of persons around the world can be infected.
Once a pandemic virus develops, it can spread rapidly causing outbreaks around the world. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) predicts that as much as 25% to 30% of the US population could be affected.
Can pandemic flu be prevented?
Governments all around the world are preparing for the possibility of a pandemic outbreak under the leadership of the World Health Organization.
It is not possible to prevent or stop a pandemic once it begins. A person infected with influenza virus can be contagious for 24 hours before the onset of symptoms, and for seven days thereafter, making it extremely easy for the virus to spread rapidly to large numbers of people.
Anti-viral drugs can be used to treat severe cases as long as there was a reasonable chance that the drugs might help save lives. Antiviral drugs might also be prioritized for people who work in essential occupations, such as health care workers.
Other strategies for slowing the spread of a severe influenza outbreak could include temporarily closing schools, sports arenas, theaters, restaurants, taverns, and other public gathering places and facilities.
There currently is no vaccine to protect humans against a pandemic influenza virus because the pandemic virus has not yet fully developed. However, vaccine development efforts are under way to protect humans against a pandemic influenza virus that might develop from the current bird flu virus in Asia.
What are the symptoms of bird flu in humans?
The reported symptoms of bird flu in humans have ranged from typical influenza-like symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, sore throat, and muscle aches) to eye infections (conjunctivitis), pneumonia, acute respiratory distress, viral pneumonia, and other severe and life-threatening complications.
What can the public do to reduce their risk of pandemic influenza?
Should I buy Tamiflu (oseltamivir) for my home?
Tamiflu is a prescription antiviral drug that works against influenza viruses. It is not known if it will be useful against a pandemic influenza virus. Tamiflu is not recommended for persons to keep at home in case of a pandemic.
Although the federal government is stockpiling medical supplies
and antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu, no country in the world has enough
Tamiflu to protect all their citizens.

the vaccine if you have access to it None of this means that you should
avoid the vaccine if a global outbreak actually occurs. If there is a
highly infectious disease that’s killing people, I do recommend
that you seek out vaccines wherever possible to give yourself the best
chance of finding the disease. But as the World Health Organization is
currently explaining, these vaccines are probably not going to be widely
available. That means despite your best efforts, you may find yourself
in a situation where you do not have access to the vaccine. Or you may
have access to limited supplies of the vaccine and may have to make a
choice between vaccinating your child or vaccinating yourself.
I asked myself the very same question. To find the answers, I searched through over 400 books written by some of the most respected doctors, physicians, naturopaths and authors in the natural health community. What I ended up with was an authoritative list of the most powerful nutrients for fighting viral infections.
this research, I was able to document the astounding antiviral capabilities
of all varieties of medicinal herbs, including rainforest herbs, Chinese
medicine herbs and Western herbs. These herbs have such strong antiviral
effects that they have even been described as stronger than antiviral
prescription drugs. When used synergistically, they provide a full-spectrum
antiviral defense for the human body, meaning they help
“Who wants to manufacture this? Because if you are willing to manufacture
this herbal tincture, I would love to mention it to people and help get
this into peoples’ hands.” The answer came back from a company

Several enquiries prompted me to write these guidelines on using natural therapies to protect us from an expected Bird Flu pandemic. My lack of concern is based on two factors. The first is the availability in natural medicine of a wide range of effective antiviral remedies, and the second a considerable degree of immunity against infectious diseases that comes with a natural lifestyle.
Most individuals would acknowledge that there is still room for improvement with their lifestyle, and this is a good starting point for protection against the Bird Flu, or indeed any type of infection: Improve your lifestyle. The main lifestyle factors for improving our resistance to infections are as follows:
Sanitation- repopulating the intestines with healthy lacto-bacteria
Chronic stress of any kind undermines our immune system. Such stress may be biochemical as from food allergies or vitamin and mineral deficiencies, or it may come from persistent emotional stress of any kind, dissatisfaction and especially worry or fear. The opposites of chronic stress are relaxation and joyful activity, optimism and a positive attitude to life and everything else. These are highly protective against infections.
I regard natural antiviral remedies as more effective than pharmaceutical ones. An added bonus is that natural remedies are basically free of side-effects, and they are non-specific, meaning that they are effective against all viruses as well as against bacteria and fungi.
Most natural antivirals are antioxidants. Usually a cocktail of strong antioxidants is used in high concentrations. These include the vitamins A, C, D and E, alpha lipoic acid, and extracts of grapefruit seed and olive leaf. Supportive minerals are magnesium, selenium and zinc. Colloidal silver, hydrogen peroxide, garlic, and a range of herbs and essential oils may be used in addition. Different quantities and combinations of these may be used at different stages of infection alert or an actual infection.
During a general infection alert you may take the following with each meal or three times daily:
Half a tsp of sodium ascorbate (or other
form of vitamin C)
Use about half of these amounts for children. In addition use a wide range of high-quality foods and concentrates, such as spirulina, chlorella, barley or wheat grass powder, bee pollen, kelp, lecithin, fish oils and coconut oil, in addition to fresh vegetable juices if available. As an additional precaution you may reduce any mucus in the head spaces.
During an acute infection or as soon as you notice any symptoms, do the following:
peroxide therapy as explained
Vitamin C Therapy: Increase you intake of vitamin C to half a teaspoon in a glass of (fresh) juice or herb tea every hour. If this does not cause diarrhoea, then increase this the next day to half a teaspoon every half hour or one teaspoon every waking hour. Always use ample fluids with a high intake of vitamin C. Sodium ascorbate or mixed ascorbates are generally easier to take than ascorbic acid, which may irritate the gastro-intestinal tract. However, some therapists believe that ascorbic acid is more effective. You may make a compromise by mixing some ascorbic acid with sodium ascorbate in an amount that is acceptable to your tastebuds and your stomach.
Continue increasing until you get loose stool, just short of diarrhoea, then cut back the vitamin C by about 25% or until the loose stool or diarrhoea stops. If the infection gets worse, increase again the amount of vitamin C. Continue until the infection has disappeared. With continuing improvement, amounts need to be further reduced to avoid diarrhoea. Do not stop a high intake of vitamin C suddenly but reduce amounts gradually. Warning: If you develop edema or swellings from water retention then you may need to cut back until this is no longer a problem. Always use plenty of fluid with a high vitamin C intake.
In life-threatening situations try to find a doctor who is willing to administer intravenous vitamin C. For a protocol see Cathcart RF. Treatment of the flu with massive doses of vitamin C at http://www.orthomed.com/mystery.htm#treatment. Instructions written by Dr. Cathcart to tell your doctor precisely how to make up a vitamin C IV solution: http://www.doctoryourself.com/vitciv.html
is an essential amino acid that makes it more difficult for microbes to
spread by strengthening collagen; take about 2 g or half a teaspoon of
L-lysine 3x daily before meals or food. (If the label just says ‘Lysine’
then it probably is the synthetic D, L form and may not be effective).
