Well, vitamin C is the front line defense, so getting on a high dose to soak the system, apparently enough vitamin C helps boost the immune system
against influenza viruses.
Other natural anti-virals which are in your kitchen are:
* Garlic - Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Fungal and Anti-viral (good for secondary infection caused by influenza).
* Ginger - More anti-viral properties.
* Onions - Like Garlic rich in anti-viral, anti-bacterial sulphides.
Can you say tasty stir fries.
Zinc is also a good anti-viral. I still need to get some zinc vitamins.
Colloidal silver is some what controversial, but my mothers testimony for me at least, convinced me she is on to something as she uses it and says it
has had amazing cold killing effects for her.
Then there are the other tinctures like oil of oregano, grapefruit seed extract.
A side effect of the infection if we get it is the inflammation of the lungs caused by the immune system starting to fight itself. There are two
anti-inflammatory which I picked up just in case:
Grape seed extract and Serrapatase which may reduce the deadly inflammation and mucus.
I think trying to get the body prepped to deal with a virus first will help minimize it's damage and increase survivability.
My concern is not the swine flu as this seems more like a precursor event to a much larger pandemic. We'll have to see.
If I could keep my family at home, or take them on a 2 month vacation to a secluded cabin, I think I would like to do that but the reality is, I am
bound to my work.
