looks like we won't have a vaccine against the new bird flu in time, and commercial anti-virals don't work. So it's back to the basics, and old
home remedies. Many are proven to work.
1. Snort salt-water before you go out to cut exposure. (I doubt you really need a "jet nebulizer.")
Simply spraying a saline solution into the nose using a device called a jet nebulizer, has been found by U.S./ and German researchers to cut the
amount of germ bearing droplets in the nose by as much as 70 percent.
2. Tea Tree oil - an anti-viral antibiotic used by the military before penicillin came along. May not be 100% - but it's good.
3. dh says, "The homeopathic remedies Arsenicum and Gelsemium
defeated the 1918 flu pandemic in those so treated, while the orthodoxically
treated fell in droves."
4. Echinacea is good to bump up the immune system - but must be stopped if infection occurs.
