A NaturalNews Special Report
Now let’s get to the good news. The good news is that natural medicine can save your life. If a pandemic strikes, Tamiflu supplies will be tightly controlled. Unless you’re an emergency worker or a health care worker, your chances of ever being given Tamiflu are rather slim. Vaccines, of course, will be utterly useless once the influenza virus mutates, so even receiving a vaccine shot offers no protection other than what’s available through the placebo effect.
This leaves natural medicine and the world of anti-viral plants.
Due to the mass brainwashing of the public by pro-Pharma health authorities, most people have no awareness whatsoever of the fact that plants manufacture their own anti-viral medicines.
In fact, there’s no such thing as a plant that does not contain anti-viral medicine. EVERY plant on our planet manufactures at least one anti-viral medicine in its own cells.
Did you ever wonder why? It’s because plants are under constant attack by viruses, too. And if they don’t create their own internal mechanisms for dealing with viruses, they will not survive.
This is especially true with plant roots, which are immersed in soil that’s rich with both bacteria and viruses. If those roots do not possess anti-viral and anti-bacterial defenses, they will quickly be consumed and destroyed, killing the plant.
Thus, in virtually all plants, the manufacture of anti-viral medicines is the most natural thing in the world. It happens from day one of the plant sprouting, and it continues through the entire life of the plant.
Simply eating grass (or better yet, juicing grass) is, all by itself, an empowered act of medical self treatment. Grass contains anti-viral compounds, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and hundreds of other health-enhancing phytochemicals. (Don’t juice grass treated with pesticides, obviously.)
There are other plants, of course, with far greater anti-viral potential than grass. I merely mention this to point out the utter simplicity of finding and consuming anti-viral medicine: If you have a lawn, you have a pharmacy in your yard! (Even better if you have dandelions and other “weeds.”)
Wild foods offer the strongest anti-viral medicine. That’s a whole different area of expertise, of course, and if you want to learn more about wild foods, I have two sources to suggest:
• Peter Ragnar – www.RoaringLionPublishing.com
• Daniel Vitalis – www.Surthrival.com (his website is currently sparse, but look for upcoming announcements on seminars and teleconference events from Daniel Vitalis…)
Top Five Anti-Virals
Anti-Viral #1 – Super ViraGon
My favorite liquid anti-viral product remains Jon Barron’s Super ViraGon – a potent combination of garlic, olive leaf extract (a powerful anti-viral!), onion, ginger, zinc and other nutrients. I keep this in my own emergency supply of natural medicine. It’s available from www.BaselineNutritionals.com for a very fair price (order five for the best discount).
Anti-Viral #2 – Fitura PowerImmune
The PowerImmune anti-viral tincture offered by Fitura (www.Fitura.com) combines organic Echinacea, Cat’s Claw, Shiitake Mushroom, Olive Leaf and many other ingredients (all organic). This is another “medicine chest” product I keep in good supply. It’s also good to travel with. I personally take a dropper full of this product each time I board an airplane.
Living in Ecuador, this is also a “first aid” product I keep with me in the Valley of Longevity. Of course, if a pandemic were to strike, I would just go to my garden and eat all the natural anti-virals located there, but if I’m caught traveling — or I need an extra boost of herbal concentrates, PowerImmune is one of my top choices.
Anti-Viral #3 – Lomatium Dissectum
This product is the “secret” anti-influenza herb that very few people know about, even in the natural health industry. The root of the Lomatium is perhaps Mother Nature’s “perfect” anti-influenza herb because its anti-viral action is combined with a respiratory clearing action that’s especially useful for dealing with the secondary infections caused by many strains of influenza.
The indigenous American Indians grew Lomatium and used it as medicine. If you live in the American Southwest (or other dry, hot climates), you can probably grow this medicine, too. It might be one of the best investments you can make in your own health defense, because herbs that are growing in your yard are always more potent than herbs found in bottles.
If you can’t grow it, of course, you’ll need to buy it. Here’s one recommendation of an existing Lomatium tincture:
Nature’s Answer has a 1-ounce tincture that’s available at Vitacost.com for a ridiculously good price (http://www.vitacost.com/Natures-Ans…). This product will probably be wiped out of inventory shortly after this special report goes public, so get some of this quickly if you want it in your natural medicine chest.
Anti-Viral #4 – HerbPharm Virattack Compound
Speaking of Lomatium, HerbPharm offers an herbal tincture that combines it with St. John’s Wort (also a powerful anti-viral), lemon balm, olive leaf and other powerful anti-viral herbs.
This is a superb combination. It’s really, really powerful in defending against influenza infections. Vitacost offers it at nearly half off the retail price (http://www.vitacost.com/Herb-Pharm-…).
I definitely recommend getting some of this. You might also wish to check your local health food stores to see what they have in stock. During a pandemic, I can practically guarantee you won’t be able to find any of these medicines, because people will engage in “panic buying” of these natural anti-virals. It’s smart to have a few on hand now, before the next pandemic strikes.
Anti-Viral #5 – Olive Leaf Extract
One taste of real olive life extract and you’ll be convinced: This is powerful stuff! The best-known phytochemical in olive leaves is oleuropein, a very potent antimicrobial medicine that also has natural anti-viral properties.
Your best value on a standardized extract, in supplement form, is the NSI brand from VitaCost (http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-Olive-L…). I personally like the liquids better (http://www.vitacost.com/Natures-Ans…), but the taste is a big turn off for most consumers. If you’re not into chugging really bizarre-tasting liquids, go with the capsules instead.
Ideally, your best way to have this medicine nearby is to grow your own olive trees. To make the medicine, just gather leaves from the trees, wash them, add them to a large container of water and boil it into a concentrate. This liquid can be consumed internally or used topically. Seek the direction of a naturopathic physician, of course, before consuming this internally, and be especially cautious if you are pregnant.
The shelf life of most of these natural medicine products is about 1-2 years. That can be roughly doubled by refrigerating the products (highly recomm
Honorable mention anti-virals: In addition to the top five I’ve already mentioned here, there are other antiviral products and nutrients worth mentioning:
• Nascent Iodine – (www.IntegratedHealth.com) – Offers additional protection against infectious disease while supporting your thyroid gland.
• Amazon Herbs – The Amazon Herb Company’s numerous products from the Amazon rainforest are also, in their own ways, powerful anti-virals. Even their Zamu juice is a good choice (as it contains Sangre de Drago) for protection against infectious disease. Cat’s Claw (Una de Gato) is also a powerful antiviral, and it’s available in numerous Amazon Herb products.
• Probiotics – Virtually all probiotics will boost your defenses against infectious disease. Scientific research has even shown that probiotics directly reduce the risk of contracting H1N1 swine flu. You can find probiotics at your local health food store. Read more here: http://www.naturalnews.com/026265.html
• Wildcrafted oregano oil – (www.P-73.com) or (http://www.vitacost.com/productResu…) – This is a phenomenal wildcrafted oil with too many health benefits to mention here. It’s extremely useful as a first aid product, too, and can help your body heal more quickly. (It’s also known to be very useful for topically treating spider bites and insect bites.)
A related product, also available from Vitacost.com, is called OregaRESP (http://www.vitacost.com/North-Ameri…), which is an extremely potent encapsulated form of oregano oil. (Just open this bottle and inhale, you’ll be floored!)
Hopefully what you’ve noticed in all this is a very important pattern: If you stay informed, you will stay alive!
The No. 1 killer of people in the next great pandemic will be, without question, ignorance of natural medicine. Those who don’t know about these natural anti-virals will literally die of ignorance, while those who understand the incredible healing power of Mother Nature’s medicine are far more likely to survive.
But it’s about more than survival: It’s also about independence. When you use natural medicine to boost your defenses, you are no longer dependant on doctors, hospitals and conventional medicine to provide you with medicine. So instead of being a victim to the military medical establishment (because the military will be involved in the distribution of vaccines, trust me…), you can instead remain independent and self-reliant.
It is this self-reliance that scares the power mongers who run our world. The last thing they want is citizens taking charge of their own health and refusing to function as slaves to Big Pharma.
I hope you found this report informative and valuable. Stay informed and you’ll stay alive during the next pandemic.
