I received an email from a good & very trust worthy friend that was sent out today by a doctor in New Braunfels, TX to his patients. I found it intertesting because the good doctor confirms what many of us already know - but the general public does not. Mainly that what he is hearing privately from the CDC and Health Department is different from what you are hearing in the media!!

Because the email is so long it will take 2 posts to include the entire content....


After I returned from a public health meeting yesterday with community leaders and school officials in Comal County and Hays County, Heather suggested I send an update to my patients in the area, because what we are hearing privately from the CDC and Health Department is different from what you are hearing in the media. Some of you know some of this, but I will just list what facts I know.

- The virus is infectious for about 2 days prior to symptom onset

- Virus spreads more than 7 days after symptom onset (possibly as long as 9 days) (this is more unusual than ordinary flu)

- Since it is such a novel (new) virus, there is no "herd immunity," so the "attack rate" is very high. This is the percentage of people who come down with a virus if exposed. Almost everyone who is exposed to this virus will become infected, though not all will be symptomatic. That is much higher than seasonal flu, which averages 10-15%. The "clinical attack rate" estimation from CDC and WHO may be around 40-50%. This is the number of people who show symptoms. This is a huge number. It is hard to convey the seriousness of this to those outside of the medical fields.

- The virulence (deadliness) of this virus is as bad here as in Mexico, and there are folks on ventilators here in the US, right now. This has not been in the media, but a 23 month old in Houston is fighting for his life, and a pregnant woman just south of San Antonio is fighting for her life. In Mexico, these folks might have died already, but here in the US, folks are getting Tamiflu or Relenza quickly, and we have ready access to ventilators. What this means is that within a couple of weeks, regional hospitals will likely become overwhelmed.

- Some of the kids with positive cases in Comal County have had more than 70 contacts before diagnosis as a minimum figure.

- There are 10-25 times more actual cases (not "possible" cases -- ACTUAL), than what is being reported in the media. The way they fudge on reporting this is that it takes 3 days to get the confirmatory nod from the CDC on a given viral culture, but based on epidemiological grounds, we know that there are more than 10 cases for each "confirmed" case right now.

- During the night, we crossed the threshold for the definition of a WHO, Phase 6 global pandemic. This has not happened in any of our lifetimes so far. We are in uncharted territory.

- They are advising President Obama to declare an emergency sometime in the next 72-96 hours. This may not happen, but if it doesn't, I will be surprised. When this happens, all public gathering will be cancelled for 10 days minimum.

- I suggest all of us avoid public gatherings. Outdoor activities are not as likely to lead to infection. It is contained areas and close contact that are the biggest risk.

- I suggest all of us avoid public gatherings. Outdoor activities are not as likely to lead to infection. It is contained areas and close contact that are the biggest risk.

- Tamiflu is running out. There is a national stockpile, but it will have to be carefully managed for law enforcement and first responders as it is not enough to treat the likely number of infections when this is full-blown. I don't think there is a big supply of Relenza, but I do not know those numbers. If I had to choose, I would take Relenza, as I think it gets more drug to the affected tissue than Tamiflu.

- You should avoid going to the ER if you think you have been exposed or are symptomatic. ER's south of here are becoming overwhelmed today-- and I mean that -- already. It is coming in waves, but the waves are getting bigger.

- It appears that this flu produces a distinctive "hoarseness" in many victims. The symptoms, in general, match other flu's; namely, sore throat, body aches, headache, cough, and fever. What is not too common in regular flu cycles is vomiting and diarrhea which seems to be associated with this, further dehydrating victims. Some have all these symptoms, while others may have only one or two.

- N-Acetyl-Cysteine -- a nutritional supplement available at the health food store or Wimberley Pharmacy, has been shown to prevent or lessen the severity of influenza. I suggest 1200mg, twice a day for adults, and 600mg twice a day in kids over 12. It would be hard to get kids under 12 to take it, but you could try opening the capsules and putting it on yogurt. For 40 pounds and up, 300-600 mg twice a day, for less than 40 pounds, half that.

- Oscillococinum, a homeopathic remedy, has been vindicated as quite effective in a large clinical trial in Europe, with an H1N1 variant. You can buy this at Hill Country Natural Foods, or the Wimberley Pharmacy.

If any of my patients become ill, or suspect infection, call the office, do not come without calling and DO NOT go to the ER. If one member in a family is identified all would be given the Tamiflu or Relenza (that is normal course of action) if there is enough distributed to fill prescriptions. Public health stated that one family member identified or suspected to have contracted the flu it will require the whole family to be ‘quarantined’ in their own home until enough time has passed for the remaining household to have contracted it or be considered infection free ( 7 to 10 days per person). As another suggestion, if any member of the family is on routine medication- fill those prescriptions now. Have plenty fluids, Motrin, soups, etc available and make contingency plans in case your family is affected.

Pretty dang interesting.

For the WHO to keep upping the level, there is bound to be more than what they are telling us.

Wonder how long before more information starts leaking out.

Not to be rude or uncaring, but I could really care less what you do with this information!! I posted it because it came in my email today from one of the few people on the face of this planet that I TRUST - and, if you knew me, that is saying alot!!

Anyone who would like this email forwarded to them.....by all means just u2u me and give your address and I will gladly forward it to you! I am not here to make a decision on what is really happening right now. I am looking for FACTS!! This, IMHO, is definitely factual......

Thanks for the post. I certainly am open to the possibility that the good doctor is telling the truth. In the interest of fairness, however, I think people should be aware of Dr. Getterle's philosophies, and consider them, when making any decision about his possible motives:
www.successguidelines.com...


"Dr. Marcus Gitterle is an emergency room physician and anti-aging specialist. We met after he read one of my books, love it and emailed me, saying he lived in the same small town I do. We had lunch and became quick friends.

"One day, he told me about a way to do ‘karmic surgery’. This was new to me and made me aware of a new tool that was almost magical. It could help you release any troubling problem, or heal any condition, or achieve any intention, and do it without your doing anything. In fact, others did it for you.

"Marc explained it like this: ‘Just as you have a problem and go into the surgery, the problem is taken out while you are asleep. When you awaken, the problem is no longer there. You might be told to rest more, to drink more fluids, but in essence you are now free of the problem. All you did was agree to let others remove it for you."

"What Marc is talking about are yagyas, or yagnas. These are known in the East and little known in the West. They are not surgery, but instead a way to have spiritual masters perform rituals on your behalf, with the intent to achieving your intention.

"I know this may sound strange. But yagyas have a long history. A yagya is a religious or spiritual ceremony performed by a Hindu priest in order to alleviate karmic difficulties. Basically, a yagya is the chanting of specific Vedic mantras (sounds) by professionally trained and dedicated Vedic Pandits. This is generally the most preferred method to dissolve a crisis situation or a dangerous, life-threatening one. But you can also use yagyas to get clear so you can have, do, or be whatever you want.

"Rather than continue trying to explain what a yagya is, let me instead give you a testimonial on how one influenced my best friend.



Somehow, it concerns me that an emergency room physician is into ‘karmic surgery’ and spiritual chants.

Well I do volunteer services at my local hospital, so far our state doesn't have any know case of swain flu, the hospital is business as usual and not particularly anything strange or out of the ordinary yet.

So, I guess it depends the states closes to the borders.

No plans in Florida to close any public gatherings including proms or graduations. Schools and tourist attractions are operating at full speed despite disclosure two days ago a Mexican tourist at Disney has it---which was immediately retracted but is believed widely to be true. There have been a lot of people complaining about stomach and respiratory ailments here at since mid February, I would not be surprised if it is already spreading though most people here are not getting scared at all, no one seems to care except for the usual hypochondriacs and this a region with a very high number of young kids and elderly people who are most at risk. No run on preventive supplies, medications or masks either, I checked today.

Texas is in the line of fire though, it would not surprise me if the environment there is terse. Bad combination of border proximity and hot weather which makes the state a big petri dish. Of course, they do things big in the United States of Texas so don't be surprised if they just up and seal the state off to keep them Yankee cooties out!

Im not saying I dont believe you, Im saying we all need to be careful what information we believe 100%. I cant confirm this email, I dont have a source etc. We need to be careful right now. I said 24 hours ago what is in this email so I dont doubt that is happening, I however cannot confirm the source of the email. Thanks for posting.

Calm down man, we are all jumpy right now, those that know whats actually going on anyhow.

The INTERNET is breeding ground for sensationalism specially when it comes to betting on human gullibility, it happens all the time and now is prime time for chain letters and misguided information.

Seems to me this is spreading quickly across the country. 24-36 hours ago I became aware of possible cases in the Dallas area. Today they are closing all Ft. Worth (DFW) schools??

Alot could happen in the next 2-4 days, IMHO. And, I do not beblieve the media is telling us everything as the jump from 4 to 5 level was prompted by something!!

Just take precautions, folks. Go to the store & stock up on some things, if you have not already. What harm could it do? Just saying............

Interesting,


In Mexico City, Mayor Marcelo Ebrard said the swine flu outbreak in city seems to be stabilizing and if the death toll keeps tapering off, he says he will consider easing the citywide shutdown. Ebrard has closed down virtually all aspects of public life at the epicenter of the epidemic, at tremendous cost to the economy.


So, now they are moving to the US, so much for the pandemic in Mexico.

Thank you for the info!! I am impressed that the doc had the **lls, and cares enough about his patients, to send this out. As far as his personal beliefs concerning ‘karmic surgery’ and spiritual chants goes?? If he is a good doctor, I could care less......hell, my doctor might take offense to some of my beliefs, you know??
