How Can I Prevent The Flu Without A Vaccination? Find out about some natural preventatives.
Vaccinations and Antibiotics, as we all know, weaken the immune function. But an estimated 35,000 people die every year in the USA from regular influenza, or from influenza-related complications, so it is necessary, if we want to avoid taking innoculations or vaccinations for influenza, and we wish also to avoid the flu, to find out what the alternative treatments are.
Apart from the danger of the flu vaccine damaging the immune system, or causing alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases, there is a distinct possibility that the flu vaccine may not work anyway. The vaccination for flu, called ‘Flumist’, or ‘Tamiflu’ does not prove successful in immunizing all people against the flu: Many people suffer the very same flu symptoms, after being given this live flu virus which is introduced nasally to the patient. People often complain of getting a runny nose, with headaches, sore throat and swollen glands, aching muscles, and a cough, straight after having being given the vaccine.
Note: Homeopathic Remedy Thuja is good for the bad effects of vaccination. You can buy from this from most pharmacies and health shops: A standard potency is Homeopathic Thuja 30C. Use Thuja when illness or conditions such as eczema begin after having vaccinations. This has helped many people.
Well – There are several very good alternatives which I know about. Homeopathic Treatment, Herbal Medicine, and Vitamin C Therapy offer alternatives to the flu vaccine, and offer alternatives to standard antibiotics should you succumb to the flu.
Vitamin C Works As a Prophylactic For Flu: Much has been written about how efficacious Vitamin C is in treating infectious diseases of any kind: Dr Levy, and Dr Robert Cathcart, both from America, and Professor Ian Brighthope from Melbourne, Australia, have all written much on the subject of Vitamin C. What is more, they all have many successful case studies to report. It has been found in their research that Vitamin C, given in sufficient dosage, works as a prophylactic for many illnesses, including the influenza virus.
Dr Cathcart, from the Hale Clinic in America, reports that of all the people who came to his clinic for a monthly intravenous shot of Vitamin C, not one succumbed to the flu this past year. This indicates that the Vitamin C acted as a prophylactic for the flu virus, meaning that it acted as a preventative medicine.
Professor Ian Brighthope, from the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine, has successfully used Vitamin C therapy to treat people who have the dreaded ‘Swine Flu’ virus. Even as I write this, there is someone very sick from Swine Flu in Australia, whom Professor Brighthope is helping to treat, as from today, with intravenous Vitamin C.
When people are severely sick with an illness such as Swine Flu, it is necessary to give very large amounts of Vitamin C, perhaps around 75 grams per day. This is such a large amount that it needs to be done intravenously, so that the digestive system is not harmed, and so that the Vitamin C gets into the blood immediately, so that it can begin its work of killing off the virus.
Vitamin C can be used to Prevent and to Cure: When given in adequate doses, Vitamin C has the capability of acting as an anti-histamine, an anti-toxin, and an anti-biotic.
The Conspiracy To Keep Vitamin C out of Hospitals and the Public Domain: Very often medical authorities will announce that Vitamin C ‘did no good’, after they had administered between 4 to 5 grammes per day to a very ill patient. But a large dose is needed to counteract tenacious viruses such as the swine flu virus, and probably many other viruses too. It helps the case AGAINST using Vitamin C when the dose is far too small, and no improvement is noted, which is why, Dr Robert Cathcart claims, that hospitals will under-dose for Vitamin C, if they are pressed to administer it at all: So that they can say “See? It didn’t work.”
Homeopathic Flu Remedies
John H. Clarke, M.D. in the Homeopathic handbook entitled “The Prescriber”, advises that Homeopathic Arsen alb. 3, pil, iii. 8h works as a prophylactic for influenza. You will have to go to a homeopathic pharmacy to get this medicine made up, or go to visit a professional Homeopath who really knows his stuff.
Other Prophylactics which Homeopathic Doctor John H. Clarke recommends in his homeopathic book “The Prescriber”, reprinted 1991 by B. Jain Publishers Pvt. Ltd, New Delhi, are the Homeopathic Bacillinum 30 and Influenzium 30. He recommends taking a dose of each at the same time, once a week during an epidemic. This will help prevent getting the flu.
Aconite is a good general remedy for flu. It can be used alternately, in combination with other remedies, especially at night when the patient is more restless, according to John Clarke. He recommends Aconite 3-30, Ih. for fever, pallor, faintness, and restlessness which is accompanied by pains in the heart region. Fear of death is often a symptom of the Aconite patient.
Bapt. 3x-30, Ih: This is good for treating the flu if the following symptoms exist: when the limbs are aching, with general soreness over the body, headache, sore eyes, foul tongue, fever and restlessness, drowsiness and heaviness of the body.
Eup. perf. 1-30, Ih: When the symptoms of flu include chills in the back with bone pain.
Glon. 3-30, Ih: When you have a bursting headache, violent throbbing, or bursting headache with a cough.
Belladonna 3-30, Ih: When worse for lying down, neuralgia, with the right side of head and face being affected more, delirium, inflammation of the ears, with headache, sore throat and a tickling annoying cough.
Merc. sol. 6-30, Ih: This can be used after Belladonna to strengthen the cure begun by Belladonna; It can also be used on its own if suppuration is present.
Gelsemicum 1-30, Ih: If the patient is not thirsty, but red-faced with general weakness and relaxation. The patient complains of chills which run up and down the spine.
Echinacea *,1-2h. can be used when a low typhoid condition exists.
Bryonia, 3X-30, Ih. : There is much thirst with Bryonia. The symptoms are all usually worse for movement. Use Bryonia if cough is worse for movement and there is pain in the head, or limbs, or body. Tongue is like washed leather and foul smelling.
Arsen alb.: John Clarke recommends 3-30, Ih. for flu with thirst, restlessness, rheumatic headache, fear of death and anguish, and teasing cough which is worse at night. I have not used Homeopathic Arsen alb. 30C in the event of any flu epidemic, but I feel about 80% sure that even taking the 30C potency of Ars alb. will act as a prophylactic for influenza if it is taken several times a day when there is an epidemic of influenza about. I have read about this acting as a prophylactic in other homeopathic manuals. It will also be effective, in many cases, to treat a flu virus once the person has the illness. This is a remedy which can be bought at most health stores.
Arsen alb 30C is a very potent medicine, and I once used it in combination with other homeopathics, and, finally, a dose of castor oil, to cure a young pup of paavo disease. I know for sure that this was the disease the pup had, because the other pups of the litter, who had gone to other foster homes, all died, except for one who was taken in time to the vet for a vaccination. We did not know, when we gave these pups foster homes, that the mother had already died of Paavo (must check spelling) Anyway – Arsen alb., the ordinary old 30C potency which you can buy from the chemist today, helped to cure this pup of the virus. During the day, and most of the night, at half hourly intervals or thereabouts, I fed him spoonfuls of water which had a good dollop of manuka honey from my bees mixed up in it. This gave him strength and stopped him from becoming dehydrated. Very important in any illness.
My pup, which I treated with Homeopathics and other remedies, and his brother, who was taken to the vet just in time by his carers, for a vaccination, were the only two dogs to get treatment, and the only two dogs who survived out of a litter of around six pups.
But there you go – Homeopathy worked just as well to cure the Paavo disease, which everybody told me was incurable without a vaccination.
