Pertinent to the "pandenmic"

On to the Engineered Pandemic

The predicted, or perhaps I should say, “promised” pandemic may very well be upon us. This is, as sure as God made little green apples, a totally man-made event, with a totally man-made pathogen (disease-causing agent). The WHO, US Government and MMD (media of mass deception) have been ramping up, ramping up, ramping up. But there is no honest virologist in the world who can look you in the eye and say that this virus had any chance whatsoever of having self-assembled genes from Eurasian, North American and other Swine Flu, Avian Flu (already weaponized with the genes of the 1918 Pandemic Virus?) and human viruses, sprung, like Venus from the brow of Zeus on April 14 in Mexico City and then, suddenly it has deadly potential around the globe… without a whole lot of help from its friends.

Deadly potential, by the way, is pretty weird here. There is little doubt that the death toll in Mexico is much higher than previously reported. How high we may never really know.

But there is also little doubt that there is no reason to have declared a “Health Emergency” in the US for a disease which has impacted fewer than 20 people and killed none of them. What pandemic? Who pandemic? Could it be that this pandemic is a totally orchestrated event to make sure that there is an excuse for closing down those few liberties and constitutional rights which still exist after the last devastating 8 years? The “left neocons” continuing the process the “right neocons” started?

I was reading an update from a Chinese site yesterday. It stated that the US, with 20 non fatal cases, had declared a “Health Emergency”, The same site noted that there had been a fatal train wreck in a remote part of China and 21 people were dead. I noted with interest that China did not declare a “Train Emergency”.

Bear in mind that once a global pandemic is declared, just as the US assumes supreme dictatorial powers through Patriot I, II, III, BARDA and other legislation, Executive Orders and Homeland Security Directives, and as the States assume similar powers through the Emergency Medical Powers Acts, passed at the urging of the Homeland Security cabal, so the UN will, according to already prearranged agreement, become the supreme political governing force on the planet.

World government, “elected” by a lowly virus… and an engineered one, at that.

Interestingly enough, of course, it was the Angel of Change, Barak Obama, who, along with then Senator Biden, proposed to the US Congress that a head tax be paid by every man, woman and child in the US to support the UN and that the US military be placed under the authority of the UN, that is, of the New World Order.

I would call that change, all right. And I would say that it may be that a non-pandemic Pandemic just might work to get them what they are looking for.

What will it get you?
Vaccinated with a Weaponized Vaccine.

I have the reports of several Mexican doctors who tell us that their colleagues were vaccinated and died. Vaccinated with what, you may ask? Now that is a really good question. Remembering that the CDC claims that it already has a “seed stock” from this virus which first appeared, they say, on April 14 in Mexico, that is pretty good work.

My research says that it takes quite a lot longer to make the seed stock, the purified and characterized virus, from which vaccines can be made.

And then it takes an absolute minimum of 4 months, if you are favored by the vaccine-making gods, to get yourself a vaccine.

Now, that vaccine may or may not provide any ‘immunity’ against the virus or other organism you are hoping it will protect you from.

Again, according to my research, there is literally NO disinterested evidence to suggest that vaccines provide any sort of protection from any sort of disease (I know, this is heresy to the vaccine priests and their followers - sorry, I am compelled to speak the truth as real science tells us). We do know, however, that vaccination damages the immune system in a rather horrific number of ways. Despite the ‘white wash’ and fol-de-roll, that is simply the science of the matter.

So now we have a new virus, clearly man-made, against which doctors in Mexico are being vaccinated within less than 2 weeks of its being discovered. And they are dying, according to our sources.

What does that tell us? To my mind, it tells us that the entire purpose of this exercise is two fold:

(1) to get those vaccines into your body and
(2) to tie down global control of the planet.

There is no way whatsoever that a vaccine, which is specific to a particular organism, can be effective, to the extent that it is ever effective, against another organism. NONE. Even the CDC admitted earlier today that existing flu vaccine supplies were not “effective” against this Swine Flu (according to CNN).

But, what will the vaccines do? Consider what happened in January when Baxter Pharmaceuticals “accidentally” contaminated shipments of seasonal flu vaccines to 18 countries with live Avian Flu virus. If that “mistake” (how did that live virus get into the very secure vaccine factory?) had not been discovered, there would already be an Avian Flu pandemic… so now, that weaponization having failed, we get the Swine Flu “incident…”

For more details about the January incident, see:
http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=2220

Some commentators have said that this exercise is only that — a dress rehearsal for the “real thing” and they could, of course, be correct. But whether they are correct or not, the game is going forward and it is one in which the official rule book is being written by those who will benefit from the new feudalism.

Can you Spell “New World Order”

Natural Solutions Foundation always provides solutions when we raise problems and issues. Always. And, since we understand that Nano Silver is the most potent, yet safe, nutritional pathogen killer know, we have been recommending for some time now that you need to lay in a good store of Nano Silver for health threats, both natural and man-made. But there are other ways to regulate the immune system, too, and we want to tell you about some of them. We urgently recommend the Nano Silver route (here is the link again: www.Nutronix.com/naturalsolutions). Man does not live by Nano Silver alone:

Many people have been asking us what they can do to feel less helpless in the face of the possible weaponized flu pandemic about which we have been raising the alarm over the past months. While we are watching closely. We are not totally convinced that the current crisis is a true pandemic, despite the fact that the WHO elevated the threat level a few hours ago from “3″ o “4″. We are as greatly concerned about the possibility of a weaponized vaccine forced on the public as the real threat. If the choice is between a ‘quarantine center’ (read: concentration camp) and a vaccine containing unknown dangers, and you are forced to receive an alleged vaccination for a pandemic, the first line of defense would be to consider that perhaps such intramuscular shots are a bit like a snake bite and might be treated in a similar fashion. Get the poison out, as a first line of defense. Detoxify! If you have an Infrared Sauna, use it. Drink large amounts of pure water. Use the detoxifying nutrients and herbs you have available to you. Treat the forced vaccination as though it were the assault on your immune system that it surely will be.

I cannot say what will help, but every bit of mercury, aluminum, fluoride, formaldehyde, squalene, aspartame, MSG, Polysorbate 80 and other toxins you can get out of your body, is better than than that same poison in your body.

Here are some links to information that may help you prepare for what may be coming.

Natural Antivirals

http://www.the-health-gazette.com/health-gazette-blog/alternative-medicine/natural-antivirals

“Research suggests certain natural foods may be as effective against virus H5N1
as commercial antivirals.

(PRWEB) May 10, 2006 — A Biology teacher from Australia, named Stephen Jones,
has done extensive research into the H5N1 virus and compiled a list of natural
foods that are effective against it and listed others that are detrimental.

The list may come as a surprise to many people since foods such as spirulina
and echinacea are listed as detrimental. This strange occurrence is largely
due to the fact that the virus is immune to 2 cytokines that the body produces
(TNF-a and IL-6). Cytokines are compounds produced by the body’s immune system
that attack and remove foreign bodies. The problem is that when a foreign body
is immune to certain cytokines, the body sees that its immune response is not
working and tries even harder, which can lead to what is called a cytokine
storm, where the body becomes flooded with these compounds and they eventually
destroy the body itself. Foods such as Echinacea actually stimulate the
production of these specific cytokines; hence consuming it is not a good idea
if one suspects they may have the virus.

During the 1918 Spanish Flu many healthy young people died from cytokine
storms due to their immune systems overreacting. Consuming foods which
suppress the production of cytokines TNF-a and IL-6 and enhance the production
of the ones that actually are effective against the virus will aid the patient
greatly.

Other foods that create mucous in the respiratory tract, such as bananas, are
also listed as detrimental due to the fact that the predominant breeding
ground of the virus is the respiratory tract and another way in which a
patient may suffer is due to the body’s over production of mucous in this
area.

Natural Antivirals

Folk Medicines and Herbs to use and avoid with Bird Flu

Below is a list of foods that are said to contain substances that are natural
antivirals, immune boosters or they decrease cytokines TNF-a and IL-6.

Alternative medications that are most likely to help us during a severe
pandemic:

Garlic (allicin) - Very effective antiviral. Best if fresh (raw) and crushed.
Must be consumed within 1 hour of crushing. Dosage is initially 2 to 3 cloves
per day but later reduce until no body odour occurs. No toxic effects noted.
(Pubmed PMID 9049657)

Vitamin C - Boosts the immune system and is an antiviral by blocking the
enzyme neurominadase. Viruses need neurominadase to reproduce. There are
anecdotal stories of people taking large amounts of Vitamin C (children ½)
surviving the Spanish Flu. Research shows that it may reduce the production of
cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. A study on 470 people involved giving the test group
1000 mg hourly for 6 hours and then 1000 mg 3 times daily after reporting flu
symptoms. Symptoms decreased by 85%. (Pubmed PMID 10543583, 634178, 16169205,
12876306)

Green Tea (possible Tamiflu/Relenza alternative)- Very effective antiviral.
Also decreases the production of the cytokine (catechins) TNF-a. Inhibits
neurominidase. May have antiviral activity that is equal to other antivirals
such as Tamiflu. (Pubmed PMID 16137775)

St Johns Wort (Hypericum) - Very effective antiviral. Also decreases the
production of the cytokine IL-6. Hypericum is an extract from St John’s Wort.
There have been some very successful field trials in commercial flocks
infected with H5N1 in Vietnam. (Pubmed PMID 7857513, 11518071, 11362353,
7857513, 11518071)

Vitamin E - Immune booster. Also decreases the production of the cytokine
TNF-a. (Pubmed PMID 155882360, 10929076) Experiments involved using mice. Very
suitable for immune compromised people, especially the elderly. Effects
enhanced when taken with Vitamin C.

Apple Juice - Antiviral. Fresh apple juice including the pulp and skin has
greater antiviral activity than heated commercial apple juice. More research
is needed. Effectiveness on H5N1 is unknown. (Pubmed PMID 32832, 12452634)

Resveratrol - Antiviral. In addition to inhibiting neuraminidase, Resveratrol
also sends a message to cells to stop manufacturing viruses. This is a proven
antiviral found naturally in red wine, peanuts, mulberries, Japanese Knotwood
root (richest source), raisins and red grapes. Resveratrol supplements are
relatively inexpensive, are more stable than wine and is available in liquid
form for absorption in the mouth. No toxic effects noted. (Pubmed PMID
1583880, 12817628, 15985724)

Scuttellaria (Skullcap) - Antiviral. A herb used as a tea. It has no side
effects and is also a mild tranquillizer. Research suggests neurominidase,
which is a substance needed by the H5N1 virus to reproduce, may be inhibited.

Cranberry Juice - Early research shows that it may be an antiviral, making
viruses less able to invade or multiply. Effectiveness on H5N1 is unknown.
(Pubmed PMID15781126)

Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) - Decreases the production of the cytokine
TNF-a. Also boosts immune system. The number of white blood cells was
significantly increased during treatment. No toxicity was noted.
(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?CMD=search&DB=pubmed) Active
constituents can be found in the leaves, bark, vine, and roots. Water
extraction from bark used. Children and pregnant women are to avoid. Has a
potentially damaging effect on the DNA of proliferating cells. (cancers,
fetuses, growing children)

Curcumin (Tumeric Spice) - Decreases the production of the cytokine TNF-a.
This is the yellow compound in turmeric spice. Research shows that this may be
very good for preventing a cytokine storm although this is not proven. Must be
taken with food or gastritis or peptic ulcers may occur. Pregnant women and
feeding mothers should avoid this. The medicinal properties of curcurmin
cannot be utilized when used alone due to rapid metabolism in the liver and
intestinal wall. When combined with Piperine found in black pepper the
absorption is increased with no adverse effects. Obtainable from health stores
in tablets, liquid, capsules already combined with piperine. Dosage is 500mg
to 4000mg daily.

Astragalus root (Astragali Radix) - Boosts immune system. (Pubmed
PMID15588652)

Tea tree Steam Inhalation - Reduces the cytokine TNF-a. Add 2 drops of tea
tree oil in a bowl of steaming water. Cover head with a towel and inhale for 5
to 10 minutes. Relieves congestion and fights infection. Its effectiveness is
unknown. (Pubmed PMID 11131302)

The following substances may be best to avoid during a H5N1 pandemic

Elderberry juice (Sambucal) - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a
and IL-6. This substance is very effective against the common flu but may not
be desirable for the H5N1 virus. Increases in these cytokines may trigger a
lethal cytokine storm. (Isr Med Journal2002 Nov;4:944-6)

Micro Algae (Chlorella and Spirulina) - AVOID - Increases production of
cytokine TNF-a. (Pubmed PMID 11731916)

Honey - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. (Pubmed
PMID12824009)

Chocolate - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. (Pubmed
PMID 12885154, PMID 10917928)

Echinacea - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. Although
it is often used for normal flu, research shows that it may increase the
chance of cytokine storms for H5N1. (Pubmed PMID 15556647, 9568541)

Kimchi - AVOID - Increases production of cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. (Pubmed
PMID15630182)

Dairy products & Bananas - AVOID - These foods increase mucous production.

Some Herbal Remedies

Lomatium dissectum root — A Native American remedy. A powerful herbal tincture that kills viruses by disrupting their genes (a chain terminator). When tested at NIH, it made DDI (an AIDS drug) 4000 times more potent. Dose = 2 droppersful / day.

Monolaurin — the natural anti-microbial substance in mother’s milk, made from lauric acid (a fatty acid). Patented by Ecological Formulas. Adult dose is 6 capsules / day. Safe and effective for children at lower doses based on weight.

Echinacea angustifolia root — A native American remedy. Multiple European and American studies have shown that this herb can reduce the risk by one-half of catching a cold, and shorten the duration of a cold by 1.4 days. It should contain all 3 active compounds (polysaccharides, alkylamides and cichoric acid). Dose is 3 grams / day. Not recommended for children.

Olive Leaf Extract — This herbal compound fights bacteria, yeast, fungus and viruses.

L-Lysine — An amino acid that interferes with viral genes (a chain terminator). It has been shown to be extremely effective against Herpes viruses, but has some action against most other viruses.

Vitamin C — Enhances the micro-tubules (cell skeletons) in immune cells, helping them to extend outward (pseudopods) and engulf viruses and bacteria.

Thymus Extract — organic bovine thymus, which provides the 4 basic hormones to stimulate the immune system.

Transfer Factor Plus– A combination of 2 powerful factors: (1) Transfer factors from bovine collostrum, which stimulate the immune system to make natural killer cells. There are over 1000 scientific papers on the efficacy of transfer factor. (2) Japanese mushrooms with anti-viral properties. Together they have been shown to elevate natural killer cells 4000%. Dose 1-2 capsules / day. You can buy Transfer Factor here: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/store/cart.php?m=search_results&search=Transfer+Factor&button=Go!

And this email we received, quoting information regarding various miscellaneous remedies and concerns: dehydration, mercury toxins, magnesium, etc and that old-stand-by, Iodine:

“April 28, 2009 - Swine flu is a respiratory illness in pigs caused by a virus. Mexico’s
government is ordering closed schools nationwide as the suspected death toll
from swine flu climbed to 149. Health Secretary Jose Angel Cordova says only
20 of the deaths have been confirmed to be from swine flu and the government
was awaiting tests results on the rest. He says 1,995 have been hospitalized
with serious cases of pneumonia since the first case of swine flu was
reported on April 13. Alarmingly, the flu outbreak in Mexico is striking
healthy young people — a pattern that would be expected if a flu virus new
to humans emerged…

Officials in Mexico and the U.S. are taking emergency steps to contain
what is believed to be a new multi-strain swine flu. “If the confirmed
deaths are the first signs of a pandemic, then cases are probably incubating
around the world by now,” said Dr. Michael Osterholm, a pandemic flu expert
at the University of Minnesota. The Mexican Swine Flu has elements of DNA
from the following: avian flu, human flu Type A, human flu Type B, Asian
swine flu, and European swine flu. Human and animal viruses from four or
more continents suddenly recombine in a new flu during a non-flu season that
spreads from human-to-human with a 10% fatality
rating.

Just last month Baxter Pharmaceuticals was caught shipping a mix of H3N2
seasonal flu viruses and unlabelled H5N1 viruses. Baxter released
contaminated flu virus material from a plant in Austria, which contained
live H5N1 avian flu viruses. 2

In Mexico City children rarely use the color blue when they paint the
sky. The atmospheric pollution in the Mexican capital, one of the world’s
biggest cities, is one of the most severe air pollution cases in the world.
Contaminated air hangs over its population of more than 20 million people
doing damage to children’s lungs causing chronic lung diseases when they are
adults. Perched at 7,300 feet in a bowl-shaped valley where the air is thin,
vehicle fumes get trapped and you might as well be living in a gas chamber.
It is that bad and this explains in part why we are finding deaths from the
flu concentrated there with no deaths reported outside of Mexico to this
date. Even the healthy are sick. Full of toxins, they are medically speaking
“accidents waiting to happen,” so when a strong flu strain strikes such a
population the death rate will be very high. The cause of death is
debatable! …

*Infections cannot be separated from the conditions that
invite pathogens to proliferate. This seems to boggle the
minds of orthodox medical scientists, who like the blind men
and the elephant, seem to be able to focus on one thing at a time.*

We live in a dangerous world and anything that throws us out of balance
invites pathogens to take up residence in our bodies. If this is the
beginning of the pandemic that health officials have been warning about it
is best to begin preparing your body before the flu strikes. This article
offers natural emergency medicine that addresses both the body’s terrain and
the potential pathogens quickly. Starting with the most basic medicine, we
need to address dehydration and the use of water and mineral salts as
medicines first.

*Dehydration Dangers*

Complications of flu can include bacterial pneumonia, ear infections,
sinus infections, dehydration, and worsening of chronic medical conditions,
such as congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes. Many underestimate
seasonal flu’s severity and neglect treating dehydration, a survey of U.S.
physicians and consumers found. Fifty-seven percent of doctors surveyed said
they considered dehydration the single most dangerous flu side effect.
“Severe flu symptoms like fever and body aches often keep patients from
taking in adequate fluids,” said Dr. Leanne M. Chrisman-Khawam of Case
Western Reserve University in Cleveland. “By managing symptoms, one will be
more likely to manage their dehydration as well.” …

The blood is 80 percent water thus hydration levels are extremely
important in blood chemistry. Moderate dehydration, a 3-5% decrease in body
weight due to fluid loss is sufficient to result in a substantial decrease
in strength and endurance because of the *decrease in oxygen carrying
capacity of the blood signaling a drop in Zeta potential.* Proper hydration
is thus the most basic preventative medicine against death from any type of
flu.

*Mercury Exposure = Increased Vulnerability*

Chronic mercury exposure is also a threat to our health and makes us
especially vulnerable to flu infections. It has been shown that “prolonged
exposure of mammals (white mice) to low mercury concentrations (0.008 – 0.02
mg/m3) leads to a significant increase in the susceptibility of mice to
pathological influenza virus strains. This is shown by more severe course of
infection. In the experimental group more mice died (86 – 90.3 %) than in
the unexposed animals (60.2 – 68 %), additionally the experimental group
died more quickly. The significant difference was in the appearance and
degree of pneumonia in the effected animals,” wrote Dr. I. M. Trakhtenberg
in *Chronic Effects of Mercury on Organisms.*

Though everyone in the northern hemisphere is contaminated with mercury
health officials have a mental block against suggesting anything that might
reduce total mercury body burden. Though some dedicated health activists are
cracking the FDA’s endorsement of mercury dental amalgam it will take a
Martian death ray to get them to protect the public from the obvious.
Natural chelation methods work safely to remove mercury but unfortunately,
if this is the dreaded flu outbreak, there will be little time to reduce
mercury levels. Much can still be accomplished with the emergency protocol
suggested below. Mercury exposure will make flu symptoms worse and even more
dangerous, and that is one reason the flu vaccine is deadly because most
brands include thimerosal, which almost fifty percent mercury.

Several other mercury fighters have a place in the flu battlefield. In
addition to binding mercury into a fairly harmless complex, selenium is a
very good inflammation fighter even in small concentrations. N-acetyl
L-cysteine, an antioxidant and glutathione precursor, stimulates production
of this master antioxidant and, among other things, boosts the immune system
and has anti-inflammatory properties. Alpha-lipoic acid, another mercury
mover, acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, while protecting the
mitochondria and reducing cellular inflammation. Learn about them before you
need them and add them to your medicine kit now.

*Iodine, the Universal Pathogen Killer*

As early as June 1, 1905 an article was printed in the New York Times about the
successful use of iodine for consumption/tuberculosis. Though
iodine kills most pathogens on the skin within 90 seconds, its use as an
antibiotic/antiviral/antifungal has been completely ignored by modern
medicine. Iodine exhibits activity against bacteria, molds, yeasts,
protozoa, and many viruses; indeed, of all antiseptic preparations suitable
for direct use on humans and animals and upon tissues, only iodine is
capable of killing *all classes of pathogens*: gram-positive and
gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, yeasts, viruses and
protozoa. *Most bacteria are killed within 15 to 30 seconds of contact.*

Index

*Iodine is by far the best antibiotic,
antiviral and antiseptic of all time. *

* Dr. David Derry*

Dr. Derry says iodine is effective “for standard pathogens such as
Staphylococcus, but also iodine has the broadest range of action, fewest
side effects and no development of bacterial resistance.” Some doctors have
reported that it is excellent for the treatment of mononucleosis. Iodine
kills single-celled organisms by combining with the amino acids tyrosine or
histidine when exposed to the extracellular environment. All single cells
(pathogens) showing tyrosine on their outer cell membranes are killed
instantly by a simple chemical reaction with iodine that denatures proteins.
Nature and evolution have given us an important mechanism to control
pathogenic life forms, and we should use it and trust it to protect us in
ways that antibiotics cannot.

Dr. David Brownstein, author of *Iodine – Why You Need It,* uses iodine
extensively in his practice and says, “Iodine is a wonderful antibiotic
solution without question and most importantly *I never see any of my
patients complain of dysbiotic reactions from its use.” *Because
drug-resistant micro-organisms continue to emerge and the number of patients
susceptible to these infections is increasing dramatically an approach that
utilizes the innate powers of the immune system as a therapeutic agent will
have the greatest benefit to sick patients. The body’s ability to resist
infection and disease is hindered by long-term deficiency in essential
vitamins and minerals including that of iodine. Poor immune response is
correlated with impaired thyroid function; *a deficiency in iodine can
greatly affect the immune system* because low levels of iodine lead to
problems with the thyroid gland.

I personally talked to a missionary, Stephen Fisher, in Zambia on the
phone last year who told me about his very successful use of iodine to treat
people with malaria. He used 20 drops of Nascent Iodine in a half glass of
water given 4 or 5 times during the first day and then decreased the dose to
10 drops of Nascent Iodine 4 times a day for 3 more days, although higher
dosages can be administered for much longer since iodine is a nutritional
medicine that is needed by the body. Such a protocol can be used for the
swine flu or any other type of influenza. Brownstein and others use much
higher dosages of other iodine forms, namely Lugol’s and Iodoral for cancer treatment.
If you are interested in high dose usage, please read one of the books by
Dr. Brownstein or myself for more details on how to do so.

The minimum number of iodine molecules required to destroy one
bacterium varies with the species. For H. influenzae it was calculated to be
15000 molecules of iodine per cell. When bacteria are treated with iodine,
the inorganic phosphate up-take and oxygen consumption by the cells
immediately ceases. Thus the antiseptic properties of iodine are used to
sterilize every surface and material in hospitals. Iodine is an excellent
microbicide with a broad range of action that includes almost all of the
important health-related microorganisms, such as enteric bacteria, enteric
viruses, bacterial viruses, fungi and protozoan
cysts.

The tremendous diversity and mutability of many infections and their
ability to intelligently exploit the cells is one of the main reasons we
should return to iodine as our favored broad spectrum antibiotic, anti-viral
and anti fungal agent. Iodine provides us with a safe way to strengthen
innate responses to invading microbes while simultaneously correcting or
eliminating a basic nutritional deficiency that causes immunological
unresponsiveness.

*Iodine is able to penetrate quickly
through the cell walls of microorganisms.*

Iodine is a deadly enemy of single cell microorganisms thus it can be
our best friend in our fight against the most dangerous pathogens. Nature
and evolution have given us an important mechanism to control pathogenic
life forms and we should use it and trust it to protect us in ways that
antibiotics can’t.

Dr. David Brownstein, one of a core group of iodine doctors had very
kind words to say about my *Iodine - Bringing Back the Universal Medicine
book.* “Dr. Sircus has done it again. He has written a wonderful book on
iodine that shows the benefits of iodine for treating a wide range of
disorders and how you can incorporate iodine into your daily lifestyle.
This book should be in everyone’s library.” I would say the same about his
book, which inspired my deeper study into the applications of Iodine.

For those who can only get the inexpensive iodine at the drug store meant
for cuts and bruises, know that you can paint the body with it quite heavily
and frequently to get iodine into the body. Just monitor the skin for any
reactions with small area applications first.

*Influenza, Inflammation, and the Role of Magnesium*

What makes avian-derived H5N1 strains, and the influenza strain
underlying the 1918–1919 human pandemic so virulent is viral triggering of
cytokine-mediated lung inflammation. Inflammation is the activation of the
immune system in response to infection, irritation, or injury. Characterized
by an influx of white blood cells, redness, heat, swelling, pain, and
dysfunction of the organs involved, inflammation has different names when it
appears in different parts of the body. Magnesium is central to
immunocompetence, and plays a crucial role in natural and adaptive immunity
in great part because of its dominance over the inflammatory
response.

Magnesium is at the heart of the inflammatory process, it is the prime
first cause when it is not present in sufficient quantities. Increases in
extracellular magnesium concentration cause a decrease in the inflammatory
response while reduction in the extracellular magnesium results in
inflammation. Magnesium literally puts the chill on inflammation especially
when used transdermally. “Magnesium deficiency induces a systemic stress
response by activation of neuro endocrinological pathways,” writes Dr.
Mazur. “Magnesium deficiency contributes to an exaggerated response to
immune stress and oxidative stress is the consequence of the inflammatory
response,” he continued.

A little bit of magnesium chloride can be added to the drinking water
(the same as sodium bicarbonate mentioned in the next section). But both can
be introduced in much greater dosages and concentration in baths to bypass
digestive systems that may not be working properly. Many already know of the
transdermal effect of magnesium chloride and magnesium sulfate. One can also apply both
‘magnesium oil and a self-made lotion of sodium bicarbonate to the skin for rapid
absorption and this is most helpful for children. All can be put into a
sterile solution and nebulized directly into the lungs if inflammation
becomes life threatening. When all else fails, physicians can get both
magnesium and sodium bicarbonate into the body with IVs.

Most people and children are already magnesium deficient, which would
naturally increase complications or the possibility risk of death from
influenza. Everything mentioned in this basic emergency protocol is
preventive and can be started immediately. Don’t wait for the WHO to
officially announce an international pandemic before you stock your
emergency kit with the basics.

*Sodium Bicarbonate*

Using bicarbonate to change blood and full body pH is going to shift
the environment of most pathogens making it more uncomfortable for them to
inhabit a host. Malaria and influenza are often associated with
abnormalities of fluid, electrolytes and the acid-base balance. Sodium
bicarbonate is very useful and should not be overlooked just because it is
one of the most simple medicines and food items you can buy in the
supermarket.

Fluid and electrolyte imbalances easily occur in anybody with a severe
flu. This is common in severe malaria, extremes of age, young children,
malnutrition, and patients with high degree of fever and vomiting/diarrhea.

Sodium bicarbonate can be administered orally every two hours and can
be put in the baths as well as mixed with mineral water to make a lotion.
For oral use, Bob’s Red Mill Sodium Bicarbonate is the best but for baths
the old Arm and Hammer product is fine. Sodium bicarbonate buffers and
defends us from a host of complications, and is even used in chemotherapy to
protect patients from the toxic effects of dangerous drugs.

Sodium bicarbonate along with magnesium chloride are workhorse
medicines that are extremely useful in most all clinical situations.
Certainly they are useful together in infectious diseases to support both
the basic physiology and mitochondrial function.

*Vitamin C*

One does not have to say much when it comes to the importance of
Vitamin C in preparing the body for an aggressive attack of influenza of any
type. If vitamin C levels are low, the body will be more vulnerable to
complications. Also, an attack of the flu will lower already dangerously
depleted vitamin C levels. Whole food vitamin C is often better tolerated
than pure ascorbic acid in addition to the fact that whole food vitamin C
comes with the necessary co-factors for its efficacy, which ascorbic acid
does not.

There are many natural remedies on the market and many wives’s tales
–and there is always Mother’s chicken soup! One will find an extensive list
of possible herbs, formulas and foods that might help; however, they do not
make up a core protocol that one can depend on in an emergency situation
that can easily develop with a severe strain of influenza.

*The Sun – Strong Medicine against the Flu*

Medical scientists have noticed that people with the least D were most
likely to have had a recent infection of the upper respiratory tract. We
already know that getting plenty of vitamin D — more than diet can offer

appears to provide potent protection against colds, flu and even pneumonia.
As the amount of vitamin D circulating in blood climbs, risk of upper
respiratory tract infections falls and this is important when strong flu
strains strike hard.

Dr. Adit Ginde, an emergency room physician at the University Of
Colorado Denver School Of Medicine in Aurora says that in people with lung
disease, low levels of the sunshine vitamin “magnify many-fold” the
apparent vulnerability to infection seen in people with healthy lungs. Dr. Ginde
findings appeared in the Feb. 23 Archives of Internal Medicine and concluded
that in every season, people in the lowest vitamin D group were about 36
percent more likely to be suffering a respiratory infection than those in
the highest group.

Grind’s study showed that low levels of vitamin D more than doubled the
risk of respiratory infection for people with COPD — and boosted it almost
six fold in people with asthma — compared with participants who had normal
lung function and were in the highest vitamin D group. What was most
disturbing about the findings was that the NHANES data he analyzed had been
collected about 15 years ago, when almost twice as many people as today had
vitamin D levels above 30 ng/ml. This is a crucial point. We are more
vulnerable today then every before to a massive epidemic because we are more
toxic and more deficient in crucial vitamins and minerals than at any point
in modern history.

One of the most important and misunderstood vitamins is A, and it works
hard to keep you healthy with vitamin D when in the right balance. Vitamin A
plays a vital regulating role in the immune system also. Vitamin A
deficiency leads to a loss of ciliated cells in the lung, an important first
line defense against pathogens. Vitamin A promotes mucin secretion and
microvilli formation by mucosa, including the gastrointestinal tract mucosa.
Vitamin A regulates T-cell production and apoptosis.

If you are a sun lover, you do not need to take supplemental vitamin D;
however you still need to consume adequate vitamin A. Animal studies show
that even moderate amounts of vitamin D increase the body’s need for vitamin
A, whether the vitamin D is provided in the diet or by UV light. So, if you
cut back or eliminate cod liver oil in the summer, you can also consume
plenty of oily fish, liver, butterfat and egg yolks from grass-fed hens to
ensure adequate vitamin A.

So throw away your sun screens and get out in the sun when it is high
in the sky and roast yourself until slightly pink, and do that perhaps every
other day as a replacement for dangerous antiviral medications, along with
the rest of the anti-flu protocol. Drink lots of carrot juice with oranges
and eat spirulina, which is extraordinarily high in beta-carotene.

*In Summary, a Heart Felt Plea*

Please, I beg people to be aware that in November of 2005 Japan’s
health ministry issued a warning of dangerous behavioral side effects linked
to the anti-influenza drug Tamiflu. This came amid reports that several
children in Japan died after taking the medication. Dr. Rokuro Hama, head of
the Japan Institute of Pharmaco-Vigilance, had investigated eight suspicious
deaths of children aged between two and 17, which he thinks are linked to
Tamiflu. He reported his findings at a meeting of the Japan Society of
Pediatric Infectious Diseases. Investigators say in one case last year, a
17-year-old boy, after taking the medication, left his home during a
snowstorm, and jumped in front of a truck and died. Earlier that year, a
14-year-old boy, after taking one Tamiflu capsule, jumped or fell from the
ninth floor of an apartment building. Doctors say in both cases the boys had
not exhibited any abnormal behavior before taking Tamiflu.

Drug manufacturer Roche and US regulators have warned that influenza
patients treated with oseltamivir (Tamiflu) may have an increased risk of
self-injury and delirium. “People with the flu, particularly children, may
be at increased risk of self-injury and confusion shortly after taking
Tamiflu and should be closely monitored for signs of unusual behavior,” says
a warning that Roche has added to its official product information,
according to a company letter posted on the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) Web site. …

Dr. Eleanor McBean, lived through the 1918 Influenza epidemic, and
testified, “As far as I could find out, the flu hit only the vaccinated.
Those who had refused the shots escaped the flu. My family had refused all
the vaccinations so we remained well all the time. There was seven times
more disease among the vaccinated soldiers than among the unvaccinated
civilians, and the diseases were those they had been vaccinated against.”

Vaccines, especially when given in multiple quantities in one sitting
certainly have the potential to throw a person or child’s body out of
balance as can nutritional deficiencies, dehydration, lack of exercise
or a lack of sun and vitamin D. Almost everyone today is magnesium
deficient, certainly every Mexican who eats white rice!

There are many who believe from the depths of their hearts that
vaccines are bio weapons of mass destruction, which exist for both
pharmaceutical profit and over bloated professional medical egos attached to
status and power. No matter what we believe though and no matter what
develops over the next few days it would be more than prudent to disseminate
this information that will be helpful to both doctors and people facing the
current public health crisis…

Retired biochemist and toxicologist Walter Last has this to say about
Lugol’s: “Lugol’s solution is an internal iodine
solution designed to eliminate Candida and possibly viruses and other
microbes from the bloodstream. Obtain 100ml of Lugol’s solution, also
labeled Aqueous Iodine Oral Solution B.P., from a chemist. Take a test drop
in liquid other then just water to make it taste less strong. If this does
not cause an allergic reaction, continue to take 4 x 6 drops daily in liquid
or mixed with food, but not together with vitamins A, C, E, grape seed
extract or cysteine. Iodine is an oxidant and it is best to reduce the
intake of antioxidants while using it. If the blood was contaminated, then
you may initially experience a die-off reaction of the Candida, causing
weakness and possibly headache or nausea. If this happens cut temporarily
back on the amount of Lugol’s solution and drink plenty of water and diluted
teas or juices. Continue for 3 weeks, but interrupt if you develop a serious
reaction. Do not take the iodine for more than 3 weeks as that interferes
with thyroid activity. If necessary repeat the course after several
months.”

Pandemic Alert: Deadly Swine Flu about to Explode?
Friday, April 24th, 2009

Natural Solutions Foundation
www.GlobalHealthFreedom.org

[ April 24, 2009 - Please share this Alert! http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=2515 ]

We have continually raised the warning about the potential for a “weaponized” or “engineered” pandemic as an excuse to force people to receive a weaponized vaccination. See for example the following postings on this blog:

07/19/08 - Weaponized Avian Flu Intelligence Report - http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=742
09/15/08 - Smoke and Mirrors… shards of truth - http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=965
03/06/09 - Avian Flu “Accident” - http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=2220
UPDATE: 04/25/09 - Pandemic eAlert - http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=2531
UPDATE: 04/28/09 - Proactive Protection Steps - http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=2581

Now we must raise the alarm once again. “Although past weaponization events have failed to trigger the pandemic,” Foundation President Gen. Stubblebine suggests, “we must assume the forces at work will produce what world health officials have called the inevitable pandemic.”

Whether those forces are the chaos of the natural world, the greed-addicted structure of the health care industry and its Big Phama cartel, or the evil intent of individuals or groups, we know not. One need not believe in conspiracies to observe that social and economic conditions may be such that a pandemic is almost a foregone conclusion. For example, several major foundations are providing significant funding to several dozen laboratories around the world that are studying the Avian Flu virus to find out how easy it might be for “terrorists” to weaponize the flu. How many such labs do you think it takes before it is inevitable that an engineered pathogen will escape?

Before you answer that question, remember that just this past January, as related in the second link above, a shipment of annual flu vaccine was “accidentally” contaminated with live Avian Flu virus… nearly triggering the pandemic.

And now, over the past couple days, the story has broken of a potential Swine Flu pandemic (yes, the Swine Flu is back!). We reproduce below several stories about this and are continuing our investigation so that we can issue a Pandemic Flu eAlert shortly to the Health Freedom Action eAlert’s several hundred thousand subscribers. If you do not yet receive the free eAlert, please join at: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?page_id=187

A final “smoking gun” is found in one article below, where the particular strain of Swine Flu is said to be a “novel strain” — and in another where it says, “It first looked mostly like a swine virus but closer analysis showed it is a never-before-seen mixture of swine, human and avian viruses, according to the CDC.” this, Dr. Laibow says, can be a hallmark of an engineered virus.

PLEASE TAKE THIS ALERT SERIOUSLY.

Dr. Laibow urges you to make sure you have supplemental silver (ionic or colloidal) available and stockpiled. This nutrient offers hope in a dangerous situation. You can order ionic silver and support the Foundation at the same time by going to: www.Nutronix.com/NaturalSolutions and on the top bar choose “Products” — then on the left menu (near the bottom) choose: “Silver Solution”.

[1] April 29, 2009 - Message from Dr. Joseph Mercola

http://www.voteronpaul.com/newsDetail.php?Critical-Alert-The-Swine-Flu-Pandemic-Fact-or-Fiction-899

“Could a mixed animal-human mutant like this occur naturally? And if not, who made it, and how was it released?

Not one to dabble too deep in conspiracy theories, I don’t have to strain very hard to find actual facts to support the notion that this may not be a natural mutation, and that those who stand to gain have the wherewithal to pull off such a stunt.

Just last month I reported on the story that the American pharmaceutical company Baxter was under investigation for distributing the deadly avian flu virus to 18 different countries as part of a seasonal flu vaccine shipment. Czech reporters were probing to see if it may have been part of a deliberate attempt to start a pandemic; as such a “mistake” would be virtually impossible under the security protocols of that virus.”

[2] More US swine flu cases, Mexico illnesses raise pandemic questions

Lisa Schnirring * Staff Writer

Apr 23, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – Five more cases of an unusual swine influenza virus infection have surfaced, officials from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced today, bringing the total to seven and raising more concerns about human-to-human transmission.

The new cases include two clusters, two 16-year-old boys in San Antonio, Tex., who attended the same school and a father and daughter from San Diego County. Anne Schuchat, MD, interim deputy director for the CDC’s science and public health program, told reporters today at a teleconference that the clusters are consistent with human-to-human spread.

She also said that the World Health Organization has not raised its six-phase pandemic alert level above phase 3 (no or very limited human-to-human transmission).

The fifth new case occurred in a patient from Imperial County, which borders San Diego County. Both counties are home to the first two swine flu patients that the CDC announced on Apr 21.

News of the five new swine flu cases came on the same day Canadian officials warned its public health, medical, and quarantine workers to look for illnesses among Canadians returning from Mexico. Mexico has reported several cases of severe respiratory illness and has asked Canada to assist in finding the source of the illnesses, some of which have been fatal, according to a report today from the Canadian Press (CP).

Schuchat said no swine flu cases have been confirmed in Mexico or Canada, but that CDC officials are discussing the situation with Mexican health officials and representatives from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).

Novel strain, relatively mild symptoms
Concerning the seven American cases, Schuchat said, “The good news is that all of the patients have recovered, and one was hospitalized. This is not looking like a very severe influenza.”

Patients experience fever, cough, and sore throat symptoms similar to typical influenza, but some of the patients who had swine influenza also experienced more diarrhea and vomiting than is typical of seasonal flu.

The CDC said genetic sequencing of samples from the first two patients, California children who lived in adjacent counties, show that the swine flu virus contains segments from four different viruses: some North American swine, some North American avian, one human influenza, and two Eurasian swine.

“This virus hasn’t been recognized in the USA or elsewhere,” Schuchat said.

CDC scientists have determined that the novel swine flu virus is resistant to the older antivirals rimantadine and amantadine but is susceptible to oseltamivir and zanamivir.

Schuchat said the CDC expects to see more swine flu cases and that it would provide regular updates on its Web site.

“This is not time for major concern around the country, but we want you to know what’s going on,” she said. Most of the public health response will focus on the California and Texas areas where cases have been identified, but the CDC is urging health departments in other states to heighten their awareness of respiratory illnesses, particularly in those who have had contact with pigs or traveled to the San Diego or San Antonio areas.

Schuchat said the CDC doesn’t know yet if the H1N1 component of this season’s influenza vaccine provides any protection against the swine flu virus, but she said studies are under way to determine if there is any cross-protection.

Expert reaction
Michael T. Osterholm, PhD, MPH, director of the University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, publisher of CIDRAP News, said the findings, though concerning, don’t mean that a pandemic is imminent.

However, he said health officials shouldn’t take comfort in the fact that the illnesses so far have been mild. “The first wave of the 1918 pandemic was mild, too,” Osterholm pointed out.

Walter Dowdle, PhD, who worked in the CDC’s virology unit during the 1976 swine flu outbreak, told CIDRAP News that it’s interesting but not greatly alarming that the 2009 swine flu strain contains such an unusual mix of gene segments.

“It’s a real mutt,” said Dowdle, who now works with the Task Force for Child Survival and Development, based in Atlanta. “When you have an evolving RNA mechanism, it’s hard to be surprised by anything.”

The H1N1 component of the seasonal flu vaccine might provide some degree of protection, he said. And if the swine flu virus persists, federal officials could consider adding an additional H1N1 strain to next year’s vaccine.

Marie Gramer, DVM, PhD, a University of Minnesota veterinarian who has studied swine flu, said her preliminary examination shows that the outbreak strain doesn’t appear to closely match anything currently circulating in pigs. However, Gramer added that she has only looked at a small number of viruses and only at the hemagglutinin gene.

Risk message implications
Peter Sandman, PhD, a risk communication consultant based in Princeton, N.J., also listened in on today’s CDC teleconference. While he credited the CDC with getting a clear, calm, and concise scientific message out about the swine flu cases, he said they missed a teachable moment to promote pandemic preparedness.

“Everyone needs to learn how to say ‘This could be bad, and it’s a good reason to take precautions and prepare’ and ‘This could fizzle out,’” Sandman said. “They need to simultaneously say both statements.”

He added that “good risk communicators need to know how to be both scary and tentative.”

Federal health officials are probably treading cautiously around the word “pandemic,” because some accused them of fearmongering when they raised concerns about the H5N1 virus 2 years ago and also because of overreaction during the 1976 swine flu epidemic that led to vaccination missteps.

When talking to the public about pandemic risks, federal officials could take some cues from hurricane forecasters, Sandman said, “and speculate responsibly.”

Canadian officials probe Mexico illnesses
Canada’s Public Health Authority (PHAC) said today in a situation update that Mexican authorities have asked its assistance in determining the cause of two clusters of severe respiratory illnesses that have occurred this month.

A cluster in Mexico City involved 120 cases and 13 deaths; the other occurred in San Luis Potosi, where 14 cases and 4 deaths were reported. Three deaths were reported from other locations: One from Oaxaca in southern Mexico and two from Baja California Norte, near the US border.

The PHAC report said the disease outbreak struck some healthcare workers and that most patients were previously healthy young adults between the ages of 25 and 44. Symptoms included fever, headache, ocular pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue that rapidly progressed to severe respiratory distress in about 5 days.

Mexican officials detected some influenza A/H1N1 and influenza B viruses, but have apparently ruled out H5N1 virus involvement. The PHAC said it received 51 clinical samples from Mexico for testing at its National Microbiology Lab.

Mexico told the PHAC that it had a late influenza season with an increasing number of influenza-like illnesses since the middle of March. The country also had a higher proportion of influenza B viruses than previous seasons.

[3] Sixty Swine Flu Fatalities In Mexico Confirm Pandemic Start
Recombinomics Commentary 13:30
April 24, 2009

A rare outbreak of human swine flu has killed at least 60 people in Mexico and spread to the United States where authorities are on alert, the World Health Organisation said on Friday.

“To date there have been some 800 suspected cases with flu-like illness, with 57 deaths in the Mexico City area,” Chaib added.

Twenty four suspected cases and three deaths were also recorded in San Luis Potosi in central Mexico.

The above comment confirm that the swine H1N1 in southwestern United States (see updated map) is the leading edge of a H1N1 pandemic that appears to be centered in Mexico.

These deaths should increase the pandemic phase to 6.

Release of sequences from fatal cases in Mexico would be useful.

[4] Deadly new flu strain breaks out in Mexico, U.S.

By Alistair Bell and Noel Randewich

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A strain of flu never seen before has killed as many as 61 people in Mexico and has spread into the United States, where eight people have been infected but recovered, health officials said on Friday.

Mexico’s government said at least 16 people have died of the disease in central Mexico and that it may also have been responsible for 45 other deaths.

The World Health Organization said tests showed the virus in 12 of the Mexican patients had the same genetic structure as a new strain of swine flu, designated H1N1, seen in eight people in California and Texas.

Because there is clearly human-to-human spread of the new virus, raising fears of a major outbreak, Mexico’s government canceled classes for millions of children in its sprawling capital city and surrounding areas.

“Our concern has grown as of yesterday,” U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acting director Dr. Richard Besser told reporters in a telephone briefing.

It first looked mostly like a swine virus but closer analysis showed it is a never-before-seen mixture of swine, human and avian viruses, according to the CDC.

“We do not have enough information to fully assess the health threat posed by this new swine flu virus,” Besser said.

Humans can occasionally catch swine flu from pigs but rarely have they been known to pass it on to other people.

The WHO said it was ready to use rapid containment measures if needed, including antivirals, and that both the United States and Mexico are well equipped to handle the outbreak.

Both the WHO and the CDC said there was no need to alter travel arrangements in Mexico or the United States.

CLOSE TO 1,000 SUSPECTED CASES IN MEXICO

Eight people were infected with the new strain in California and Texas, but all of them have recovered. Mexico said it had close to 1,000 suspected cases there.

The CDC’s Besser said scientists were working to understand why there are so many deaths in Mexico when the infections in the United States seem mild.

Worldwide, seasonal flu kills between 250,000 and 500,000 people in an average year, but the flu season for North America should have been winding down.

The U.S. government said it was closely following the new cases. “The White House is taking the situation seriously and monitoring for any new developments. The president has been fully briefed,” an administration official said.

Mexico’s government cautioned people not to shake hands or kiss when greeting or to share food, glasses or cutlery for fear of infection.

The outbreak jolted residents of the Mexican capital, one of the world’s biggest cities and home to some 20 million people.

One pharmacy ran out of surgical face masks after selling 300 in a day.

“We’re frightened because they say it’s not exactly flu, it’s another kind of virus and we’re not vaccinated,” said Angeles Rivera, 34, a federal government worker who fetched her son from a public kindergarten that was closing.

The virus is an influenza A virus, carrying the designation H1N1. It contains DNA from avian, swine and human viruses, including elements from European and Asian swine viruses, the CDC has said.

The Geneva-based U.N. agency WHO said it was in daily contact with U.S., Canadian and Mexican authorities and had activated its Strategic Health Operations Center (SHOC) — its command and control center for acute public health events.

The CDC said it will issue daily updates here

Surveillance for and scrutiny of influenza has been stepped up since 2003, when H5N1 bird flu reappeared in Asia. Experts fear that or another strain could spark a pandemic that could kill millions.

In Egypt, a 33-year-old woman died of bird flu, becoming the third such victim there in a week. The H5N1 bird flu, a completely different strain from the swine flu, has infected 421 people in 15 countries and killed 257 since 2003.

An outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, killed 44 people in Canada in 2003.

[5] SNAP ANALYSIS-New swine flu likely widespread, experts say
25 Apr 2009 21:06:44 GMT - Source: Reuters
By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Editor

WASHINGTON, April 25 (Reuters) - A new and unusual strain of swine flu is likely widespread and impossible to contain at this point, experts agree.

The H1N1 strain has killed at least 20 people and possibly 48 more in Mexico and has been confirmed in at least eight people in the United States, all of whom had mild illness.

Probable cases also were found at a school in the New York City borough of Queens and experts at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say they fully expect to find more cases. Here is why:

* This new strain of influenza has shown it can spread easily from person to person.

* It has been found in several places and among people who had no known contact. This suggests there is an unseen chain of infection and that the virus has been spreading quietly.

* This can happen because respiratory illnesses are very common and doctors rarely test patients for flu. People could have had the swine virus and never known it.

* At least in the United States, it has so far only been found in people who had mild illness, another factor that would have allowed it to spread undetected.

* World Health Organization director Dr. Margaret Chan has said the new strain of H1N1 has the potential to become a pandemic strain because it does spread easily and does cause serious disease.

* CDC experts note that while it is possible to contain an outbreak of disease that is in one limited area, once it is reported in widespread locations, the spread is impossible to control. (For full coverage of the flu outbreak, click on [nFLU]) (Editing by Xavier Briand)

[6] World eyes deadly flu risk, Mexico City hushed
Sun Apr 26, 2009 11:56am EDT
By Catherine Bremer

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Governments around the world rushed on Sunday to check the spread of a new type of swine flu that has killed up to 81 people in Mexico and infected around a dozen in the United States.

Mexicans huddled in their homes while U.S. hospitals tracked patients with flu symptoms and other countries imposed health checks at airports as the World Health Organization warned the virus had the potential to become a pandemic.

The epidemic has snowballed into a monster headache for Mexico, already grappling with a violent drug war and economic slowdown, and has quickly become one of the biggest global health scares in years.

Mexico’s tourism and retail sectors could be badly hit. A new pandemic would deal a major blow to a world economy already suffering its worst recession in decades.

In New Zealand, 10 pupils from an Auckland school party that had returned from Mexico were being treated for influenza symptoms in what health authorities said was a likely case of swine flu, although they added none was seriously ill.

The WHO declared the flu a “public health event of international concern.” WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan urged greater worldwide surveillance for any unusual outbreaks of influenza-like illness.

“(We are) monitoring minute by minute the evolution of this problem across the whole country,” Mexican President Felipe Calderon said as health officials counted suspected infections in six states from the tropical south to the northern border.

While all the deaths so far have been in Mexico, the flu is spreading in the United States. Eleven cases were confirmed in California, Kansas and Texas, and eight schoolchildren in New York City caught a type A influenza virus that health officials say is likely to be the swine flu.

The new flu strain, a mixture of various swine, bird and human viruses, poses the biggest risk of a large-scale pandemic since avian flu surfaced in 1997, killing several hundred people. A 1968 “Hong Kong” flu pandemic killed about 1 million people globally.

New flu strains can spread quickly because no one has natural immunity to them and a vaccine takes months to develop.

TRAVELLERS SCREENED

Countries across Asia, which have had to grapple with deadly viruses like H5N1 bird flu and SARS in recent years, snapped into action. At airports and other border checkpoints in Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan, officials screened travelers for any flu-like symptoms.

In China, officials assured people that conventional measures in place were adequate to contain the new threat.

“The measures we’ve been taking against bird flu are effective for this new type of disease,” said Wang Jing of the China Inspection and Quarantine Science Research Institute, in comments carried by state media.

Argentina declared a health alert, requiring anyone arriving on flights from Mexico to advise if they had flu-like symptoms. Continued…

[7] Swine Flu Could Become More Dangerous

3 hours 8 mins ago
SkyNews © Sky News 2009

* Print Story

The swine flu virus that has killed more than 80 people in Mexico may mutate into a “more dangerous” strain, the World Health Organisation has warned. Skip related content

“It’s quite possible for this virus to evolve… when viruses evolve, clearly they can become more dangerous to people,” said Keiji Fukuda, of the global health watchdog.

Mr Fukuda also called for international vigilance as health experts wait to see whether the virus will turn into a worldwide pandemic.

Over 1,300 people are now thought to have contracted the virulent H1N1 swine influenza after it mutated into a form that spreads from human to human.

The Mayor of New York has confirmed that eight school children are suffering mild symptoms after becoming infected.

And there have been at least 12 other confirmed cases in Texas, Ohio, California and Kansas.

The White House has declared a public health emergency but told the public “not to panic”.

Sky US correspondent Greg Milam said: “It’s important to realise that those affected have only had mild symptoms, and all have recovered or are recovering.

“But the authorities do believe that this outbreak will get worse.”

Canada has become the third country to confirm human cases of swine flu with six people falling ill in Nova Scotia and British Columbia.

Elsewhere in the world, suspected cases have been reported in France, Spain, Israel, New Zealand and the UK.

In France, two people who had returned from Mexico with fevers are being monitored in regions near the port cities of Bordeaux and Marseille.

A 26-year-old Israeli man has also been admitted to hospital after returning from a trip to Mexico with flu-like symptoms.

In Auckland, 10 school children have tested positive for influenza after returning from Mexico.

In the UK, two people have been admitted to a hospital in Scotland after returning from Mexico last week.

They are said to have mild flu-like symptoms but their condition is not causing concern.

Mexican City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard said two more people have died of the virus, taking the death toll to 83.

All schools have been shut in Mexico City, the surrounding area and the central state of San Luis Potosi until May 6.

The WHO says it has a stockpile of the antiviral Tamiflu, which has proven effective against the virus, and is preparing a vaccine if needed.

The H1N1 strain of swine flu is usually only seen in pigs - but in humans can cause symptoms including fever and fatigue.

The WHO says there is “zero evidence” that people are getting infected with the virus from exposure to pigmeat or pigs.

However, many countries say they are stepping up checks on pork imports from the region.

Russia has banned meat imports from Mexico as well as from several US states and Central American countries.

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

Natural Solutions Foundation
www.GlobalHealthFreedom.org

The following is an email written by Dr. Laibow to a leading advocate of sustainable farming. It is a request for an endorsement of part of our International Decade of Nutrition, namely our Green Eco Demonstration Project in Panama, the Valley of the Moon™ - see: www.NaturalSolutionsFoundation.org. We are publishing this email as it is a comprehensive review of what we seek to do, and specifically regarding our application with the semi-official Panamanian foundation, Ciudad Sabor (City of Knowledge). We need letters of endorsement for the Project from ‘persons of international status’ and if you or someone you know can provide us with such letters, please contact me at ralph.fucetola@usa.net. For the residential aspect of the Project, please see: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=2476

———————————

I am writing to ask a favor of you which I hope you will grant and which will lead, I believe, to a new and strong position for our shared passion to keep clean food - and freedom - ubiquitously available to everyone on the planet.

As the Medical Director of the Natural Solutions Foundation, www.GlobalHealthFreedom.org , I would like to introduce our Foundation, then myself, and the Valley of the Moon™ Eco Demonstration Project, www.NaturalSolutionsFoundation.org , a Seed Community and Teaching Project that we are creating in the Highlands of Panama for the purpose of helping to spread the techniques and technologies necessary to reclaim food production from the industrial forces which are attempting to hijack it on a global basis.

First, the Natural Solutions Foundation is a private NGO with no corporate or government ties of any kind. We are a tax exempt humanitarian charity registered in the United States, active on a world-wide basis and registered as a Private Interest Foundation in Panama. Our compass is the entire range of health freedom rights including -

* Open access to clean, unadulterated food;

* Food sovereignty for every human being on the planet, unrestricted by government or corporate intervention;

* Unfettered access to information about the relationship of food and health (currently restricted under both US regulation and Codex Alimentarius standards and guidelines;

* Open access to natural health options and products (currently under severe attack by bodies such as the EU, governments like the US and Australia and organizations like Codex Alimentarius);

* Self-determination about procedures and treatments such as vaccination, compulsory “screening” and coerced drugging, etc;

* Open access to natural health treatment options for health maintenance as well as disease treatment, prevention and cure;

* Total medical privacy without any government or corporate intrusion into the relationship between health care provider and patient;

* Total banning of products, “food” and ingredients from biotechnology;

* Creation of a Pro Health alliance of countries willing and able to abandon the dangerous (and potentially lethal) standards and guidelines of the Codex Alimentarius Commission by following the legal process we have identified which will protect them from WTO trade sanctions (”The Codex Two Step Process”, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QNg3MD6BxM&). We have traveled to numerous potential members of this alliance including India where we had the opportunity to meet with President Dr. Abdul Kalam in a private briefing on this topic;

* Attending Codex meetings for the purpose of supporting that pro-health alliance, providing scientific data on pro-health positions and briefing delegates, Ministers of Health and Agriculture and others on the implications of positions intended for ratification (driven, of course, by the US and its Multinational Corporate directors who literally sit on the US delegation).

In analyzing the strategic point of greatest global and local impact, we came to the conclusion that nothing would have more global impact on the widest possible number of factors than reclaiming the production of food by wresting it from corporate/statist control and returning it to the hands of farmers and non-farmers alike. To do this, we initiated the Natural Solutions Foundation’s International Decade of Nutrition (September 2005) and created a series of programs like our Agricultural Programs in Benin, Africa where we installed clean, safe, chemical free, inexpensive and intuitive technology designed to increase crop production by 200-600%, increase nutrient density by the same amount, decrease water usage by up to 25% and increase storage life by a similar amount.

After a global search, we decided to create the first of our teaching communities in the Chiriqui Highlands of Panama and created the Valley of the Moon™ Eco Demonstration Community, www.NaturalSolutionsFoundation.org.

Our first project was to purchase an coffee farm which was heavily infested with the devastating fungus Mycena citricolor (locally known as “ojo de gallo” or “rooster’s eye”) and create a foliar spray using bacteria and nutrients to cure the disease. This was so successful that the Natural Solutions Foundation intends to build a small factor, teach local farmers how to use this product and, in so doing, replace the toxic fungicides which perviously have been the coffee farmer’s only tool against this enormously costly problem.

Our following projects include -

* A BeyondOrganic BioDynamic Zero Emissions Farm and Farm School in the remote and beautiful town of Portrerillos Arriba. Since Panama holds most of the growing climates in which food is produced by most of the world’s farmers, segments of the school will be created on pieces of land at different altitudes and conditions to allow farmers from around the world to participate in this education for sustainable, net energy-producing farming techniques. We will be following the procedures elaborated by Fr. Godfrey Nzamajo Songhai Foundation’s Zero Emissions Research Initiative (Benin).

* Intensive Urban Agriculture, similar to “Square Foot Gardening” will be taught to children, mothers and others to disseminate the techniques of growing clean, unadulterated food on a family-by-family basis using, and saving, heirloom organic seeds and providing the nutritional components necessary to reverse the deadly trends of demineralized and devitalized, GMO and contaminated food.

* A Natural Health Center where natural medicine, including traditional herbal strategies for health, acupuncture, acupressure, homeopathy, detoxification, neurobiofeedback, massage and a host of other natural medical strategies will be taught and employed.

* A medical service for local and indigenous people will be created so that economic and sociological conditions are no bar to access to these medical options.

* A seminar center will be available to allow people to come to the Valley of the Moon for intensive educational opportunities in both long and short courses.

* A small hotel for guests and tourists.

* A cutlural center for performing and teaching music, dance, the plastic and visual arts.

* A residential area for long-term participants.

By using Zero Emissions Farming, no pollution will be produced and our only outputs will be 1.) energy from methane gas and 2.) energy from clean, unadulterated food.

Valley of the Moon™ Eco Demonstration Village is applying for affiliation with the unique Panamanian semi-private Foundation know as the City of Knowledge, http://www.ciudaddelsaber.org/, which provides interlinking relationships between organizations and programs bringing best practices, including sustainable agriculture, to Panama.

We believe that we could create our program, designed for international application, more efficiently and effectively with City of Knowledge affiliation than without it it.

One of the things City of Knowledge seeks is the endorsement, support or approval of persons with “International Presence”. You are certainly such a person and your work in sustainability and GMO free agriculture is of enormous importance and has been an inspiration to the Natural Solutions Foundation and to me personally.

I would be very grateful if you would consider writing a letter in support of our efforts for health freedom. I will be happy to supply any information or particulars to assist you in that effort.

If you would like more information, or personal contact for an in depth discussion about our organization and efforts, I would be pleased to meet with you electronically at your leisure.

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter. I remain,
Yours in health and freedom,
