….The terminal phase of Ebola is the “cytokine storm,” which occurs when the immune system begins attacking every organ in the body, bursting blood vessels and making the infected person bleed both internally and externally, through the eyes, vomit, and diarrhea.

Your post seems to imply that you think people should try to fight Ebola on their own instead of going to a hospital if for some odd reason they would get Ebola.
Ice baths? Really?

.....has anyone considered the use of methotrexate or imuran to temporarily turn off the auto-immune system and reset it? ....
Now, for Ebola to cause a cytokine storm in the body, it would have to change the genetic markers on the bodies cells, or change the targeting of the immune system. Anyone know which it does?
The term “cytokine storm” calls up vivid images of an immune system gone awry and an inflammatory response flaring out of control (Fig. 1). The term has captured the attention of the public and the scientific community alike and is increasingly being used in both the popular media and the scientific literature. However, while the general concept of an excessive or uncontrolled release of proinflammatory cytokines is well known, an actual definition of what constitutes a cytokine storm is lacking. Furthermore, there is not a good understanding of the molecular events that precipitate a cytokine storm, of the contribution such a “storm” makes to pathogenesis, or of what therapeutic strategies might be used to prevent the storm or quell it once it has started.

....How would you rank oregano and olive leaf for fighting various infections??
Susceptibility of Drug-Resistant Clinical Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 Strains to Essential Oils of Ginger, Thyme, Hyssop, and Sandalwood
AV1-HPV Composition of Example 1 (see table C) contains: Eugenol methylether 12.5% Linalooloxide 12.5% (cis+trans)-1,2-(+)-Limonene oxide 12.5% (+/−)-Isomenthol 12.5% (−)-Carvone 12.5% Trans-Geraniol 12.5% Eugenol 12.5% (+)-Carvone 12.5%
AV1-HPV See the composition 100% in total Between 30-100% regression of Examplee 1 of lesions on the surface of (on the page the cervix
A synergism therefore exists between (+)carvone and (−)carvone and trans-geraniol and additional essential oils component(s) of the present composition(s). There is a surprising and unexpected effect (in terms of regression of lesions on the surface of the cervix) to use the pure or diluted composition(s) of the present invention compared to the pure or diluted placebo compositions 1 to 24.
