Storm in a tea-cup?
Swine flu appeared out of nowhere last Spring, and is now terrorising the world. It’s an odd concotion, comprising avian and porcine viruses – almost like a lab cocktail. The third component escapes my mind right now, but it is all very odd.
It couldn’t have chosen a more convenient vector: American students on spring break in Mexico brought it into the USA, from where it appears to have spread around the world.
Few Mexicans have contracted it. This is unusual. Normally, the indigenous population suffer severely before a flu or virus spreads abroad. Not here, despite the poverty and over-crowding of Mexico’s city and country.
The US Government’s response was initially lackadaisical as if seeing an opportunity to examine the course of an epidemic.
Now it has produced a vaccine – rushed through in a matter of months, derived from the swine flu vaccine of the Ford Administration that cost 25 lives and hundreds of victims to contract Guillaine Barre Syndrome. (GBS)
It’s highly unlikely that squalene had anything to do with GBS; it’s used extensively in cosmetics. It’s time the various far left Governments controlling the Western World stopped treating the public like idiots.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. “ This classic axiom serves us well and comes down to basics: Rest, Hydration, Nutrition. Clean living basically. Nourishing foods; sufficient water – pure or in juices, vitamin supplements – Omega threes and Echinacea strengthen the immune system; clean lettuce serves as an “intestinal scrub” and organic yogurt balances the intestinal flora.
Rest is not always possible; for example, single mothers are the most sleep deprived people on the planet, and need support at the best of times and eat on the run. Vitamin supplements are vital for them…pun intended. Executives work long hours, travel frequently, but dine well and take care of themselves.
Unlike Hippocrates who described allopathy as “addition and subtraction,” Homeopathy is more subtle. We use a system of thoroughly investigated remedies derived from the plant, mineral and animal kingdoms to promote a healing reaction within the body. The prescriptions are carefully oriented to constitution, and physiological type.
However, to make life easier for those who do not have access to Homeopathy, Boiron developed a product called Oscillococcinum. This is derived from a duck virus, and has proven highly effective in the treatment of flu in a generalised population.Sequitur: The survival rate of Homeopathists’ patients in the 1918 flu epidemic is 94% – and Homeopathic Hospitals often took in patients dumped by other institutions. The survival rate of allopathy’s patients was 64% Is further comment necessary?
