Ginger and Oregano
Common cooking spices, what good are they in the fight against the flu? Don't you need expensive "anti-viral" medicines designed in the most modern laboratories? While true, that both ginger and oregano are flavorful spices with pungent aromas, ginger prized in delicious Asian foods while oregano the baseline spice in Italian pasta dishes, there is actually much, much more than taste and aroma. Yes, they are most commonly thought of as merely "taste" herbs, but for thousands of years various cultures have employed both spices for maintenance of good health, and in directly fighting disease and infection, and both ginger and oregano have been ascribed miraculous curative properties in both respiratory and digestive system ailments (fierce antibacterials, antifungals, and antivirals). Easy to come by, and unlike most modern symptom-treaters, these two spices are at this time relatively inexpensive. Please, today, add these two plant miracles to your diet with the dried cooking spices Ginger and Oregano, and as a dietary supplement in capsule form.
Note: On September 7, 2009, a Balinese woman died of H1N1 Swine Flu. Doctors confirmed she was also infected with H5N1 Avian Flu. But the experts stress: "Don't worry, it's okay, there is no reason to be concerned." Bali already has a woman dying with both influenzas present, while Chile has turkeys infected with swine flu. Chile, and Bali.
Some tough flu questions: How do I fight the flu? What is the best way to fight the flu naturally? Can I really fight the flu with natural herbs? Don't I need powerful drugs and modern chemicals to have any hope whatsoever in fighting the flu? Does garlic aid in the war against flu? Does Ginger and Oregano really give me a fighting chance against the flu? Can't I trust my Government to give me the best information in fighting the flu? Can herbs boost my immune system? Are herbs better and safer than flu vaccines and flu shots and flu jabs? How can I have a fighting shot in fighting the flu? What are the flu basics? Will a seasonal flu vaccine aid me in fighting the flu? Is it safe to eat pork, can eating pork aid me in fighting the flu? Is eating chicken safe, and can it aid me in fighting the flu? What about the NeilMed Nose Flush, will it build up my immune system and wash the flu virus from my nose and throat? Is gargling with salt water beneficial? What about sauerkraut, or sourkraut, does it really help, will sauerkraut help me fight the flu? What is the best natural method? Was the swine flu created in a laboratory? Is the swine flu really man-made? Are vegetarians healthier than carnivores, and will a vegetarian stand a better chance in fighting the flu? Does humidity help fight the flu? Should I purchase a steam vaporizer? Are ginger and oregano really the best herbs to fight the flu naturally? Please read the following information, and the specific answers to these questions are found toward the bottom of this web page.
Fight the Flu
Naturally with Herbs
Flu Fight: Angle of Attack
At the very first symptoms of the Flu War Machine in action, actively and fiercely taking over the battleground that is to be your body (the most dangerous are the tell-tale "chills," especially on a warm day or in a warm house, sudden headache, itching in the throat and/or nose, the beginnings of an overall achiness especially when all of these begin suddenly in concert), immediately:
1. Nasal Flush. Implement the NeilMed Nasal flush (see below), with at least one tablespoon of sea salt thoroughly mixed into warm, purified water. Repeat this process at least twice, to thoroughly irrigate and cleanse the nasal passages.
2. Salt Water Gargle. Immediately gargle with warm salt water, slowly and thoroughly empting two glasses of gargle to clear and cleanse the throat.
Note: The flu generally sets up camp, its War Room, its base of operations, its HQ, in the throat and nasal passages. Fight back in these two areas immediately. The NeilMed Nasal Flush (see below), and Salt Water Gargle.
3. Ginger/Oregano Assault. Immediately after nasal flush and gargle, drop a Gut Bomb on the flu virus to disrupt the Flu War Machine. Blast the Flu War Machine with two capsules of Ginger, and four capsules of Oregano (if you have never implemented these weapons of war, then blast the flu with two Ginger capsules and two Oregano capsules).
Note: At this point all flu symptoms may appear to vanish. Warning, do not be fooled. This enemy is not a wimp, and its footsoldiers do not give up easily. If you feel better, at least well enough to eat something, DO NOT eat the usual junk you consume.
WARNING: Stay away from fast food. Heat up a bowl of sauerkraut with onions and garlic, and begin to drink cleansed, purified, filtered water. Drink Green Tea.
4. Sauerkraut with Onions and Garlic. If you feel well enough to eat something, heat a pan of Sauerkraut, mixing in lots of onions and at least a full clove of Garlic. Also, add ginger (spice form) and oregano (spice form) to the dish. An alternative to Sauerkraut is Tofu Noodle Soup (see below), perhaps the greatest flu-fighting meal, a truly comforting soup.
Note: After eating Sauerkraut or Tofu Noodle Soup, you may feel that the war has been won. In fact, you may feel great. Do not be deceived. Begin to drink water, lots of water, good clean water, water that has been either previously boiled, or water that has been purified and filtered.
5. Green Tea. Fix yourself a hot cup of Green Tea, add Honey and Lemon Juice. Sip this concoction, and pray. The Flu is a fierce enemy, and much, much smarter than you, and me too, my friend. Have hope, Friend, Compatriot, Comrade, Brother and Sister.
6. Humidity. The League of Flu Viruses do not appreciate humidity, not at all. Establish a secure perimeter by standing a Vaporizer Sentinel near your bed. Obtain several of the cheap Vicks (hot steam) vaporizers and fire these babies up. Hot steam shooting near you while you sleep is important. Beginning just prior to flu season, or NOW with the unseasonal Swine Flu oinking at your door, have the vaporizers vaporizing, because, as previously mentioned, the Flu War Machine does not appreciate establishing its HQ in humidity, it much prefers dryness, and cold. Do not give it what it wants.
Caution. Use Your Brain. At all times use your brain. In all measures, use your brain. Please use caution and ensure that the vaporizer is situated in a safe location, plugged into a safe outlet, not an octopus of wires, and use your brain, in all cases and measures, use your brain. Also, please note, it is the author's express opinion, that you should employ your gray matter, thank you very much please.
7. REST. Believe it or not, rest is important. Especially if you feel you have been touched by the flu, get comfortable in your jammies, have a nice pot that you don't mind vomiting into (not that you want to vomit, this is just a worst-case scenario) close alongside your bed, and with vaporizer vaporizing, get some good, deep sleep. Remember, rest. Can you remember that? You have been told, I might say commanded, to rest, and not by me, by Someone much higher than me. Rest, and sip your Green Tea with Honey and Lemon, and perhaps a sprinkle of Ginger. And pray. Rest and Pray, and Trust in God.

Is this Flu Angle of Attack perfect? Certainly not, as the flu is a tough customer under almost any circumstances, and all the modern pallatives don't even begin to offer a "cure," and it seems that the best way is the natural way. It is certainly not a magic bullet, there is no magic bullet, but all seven of these are real, they are effective, and amazingly, all are extremely cheap and can mostly be found at your local drug store and local health food store. Do steps 1-7 at the very beginning of the symptoms, and then keep doing them, perhaps three times a day, and the next day, even if you feel better. These seven steps aid the immune system, provide a hostile territory that the flu does not favor, and the attempt is made to keep the flu at a low-level burn, so that the immune system does not freak out and go overboard in its defense, and end up destroying what it desperately attempting to defend (your body).
Be vigilant. Don't panic...

Tofu Noodle Soup
Flu Fighter Soup. This is an extremely delicious and healthful soup, much better for you than the highly touted "chicken noodle soup." This is a perfect dish for someone to eat while convalescing after an extreme battle with the flu, with almost all of my favorite ingredients. It is also a great, soothing medicine for anyone experiencing the first hints of flu or cold symptoms. This tofu noodle soup is very similar to the "Flu Tonic" recipe below, only it is not quite so severe. This is a more gentle tonic, a soothing soup. And kids love it. If you served this to someone who didn't know any better, they would be convinced they were eating chicken noodle soup, only they'd exclaim that this stuff "Tastes MUCH better!"
Organic Fettucine pasta - 16 oz
Instant Vegetarian Soup/Broth Base (4 tablespoons)
Extra Firm Organic Tofu - 19 oz diced into small cubes
Sweet Onion - 1 whole onion diced small
Celery - 4 stalks diced very small
Garlic Cloves (8 or more individual cloves, chopped or whole)
Nutritional Yeast (4 tablespoons)
Olive Oil (4 tablespoons)
Ginger spice (2 tablespoons)
Oregano spice (2 tablespoons)
Garlic Spice (1 tablespoon)
Cook in a huge pot, feeds 5 with leftovers for freezing or refrigeration. If you love slurping your noodles, then stick all the noodles straight out of the pot of water and allow them to go soft as the water comes to a boil (if you don't enjoy slurping up your noodles, then break the fettucine sticks into halves while dry), add the finely diced tofu pieces (I cut the end off the tofu block in thin slices, several times and stack the slices, then cut down the length of the stacked slices cutting them into three long slices, and then cut these crossways, making many tiny cubes of tofu, for comparison purposes, each block would be about half the size of an American dime, and twice as thick). Some people like to marinade and sautee the tofu separately. Don't bother, add the tofu to the pot of water, add 4 tablespoons of olive oil, and allow the pot to come to a boil, and immediately turn the heat down to medium or a little lower. Stir often. Add finely diced sweet onion, Instant Vegetarian Soup/Broth Base, finely diced celery, garlic cloves (the small individual pieces found inside a head of garlic, if you are not a big fan of garlic, then only add 3-4 cloves, but I suggest adding 12 or more), add in Ginger spice (powder) and Oregano spice (grated, dried) and Garlic spice (either powder or kernels). After about 10 minutes of occasionally stirring, halve the heat again (so if you start out boiling the water at 10, then havle that after boiling to 5, now put it down to about 2.5), low, and allow to cook for about 30 minutes, occasionally stirring. At about the time you remove the soup from the heat, stir in the 4 tablespoons of nutritional yeast. Check the water level, as the noodles, tofu and garlic absorb water. Add water if necessary.
Influenza and TRUTH
In the Great Influenza of 1918-1919 one of the hardest "sells" going at the time was "The Truth." The Government lied, newspapers lied (it was the "media" of the day, so you had to work at getting your daily lies, by reading, unlike the media of today that spoon-feeds you your Lie Baby Food), and almost everyone in a leadership capacity believed it was better if the common person did not know the truth. As the death tolls rose, the newspapers declared, over and over and over again: "There is nothing to be afraid about!" and "This is nothing, just the normal flu!" and best of all "Scientists have got it licked!" This last one, of course, is truly hilarious, in a sardonic, sarcastic, hardly even ironic sense, because to this day science are about as powerless as they were in 1918.
Don't panic. Is panic good? Of course panic is not good. Panic does no good. Don't panic. But be smart, for the sake of your very life, be smart. Don't panic, but some fear might just be the correct spice. Hint: IT IS SERIOUS. The newspapers and media, TeeVeeFriends and TeeVeeFiends don't want you to panic, not because panic is not good, or because if you behave in a rational way you can make better choices and decisions. No, they don't want you to panic because you are easier to control when you are not panicking. And it is their job to control you, like cattle. Like chickens. Like pigs. You are a product, just like cattle and chickens and pigs. You are a product of the media. The "experts" tout this equation:
Flu + Truth = Panic
Their equation is supported by:
Flu + Lies = Control
The reality is, the more real information you possess, in other words TRUTH, the better you can do for yourself, the better chance you have of both surviving, and helping others. Reuters news service is generally considered the BLANK news, I mean they are supposed to get their material and they BLAT it out without style. However, on July 9, 2009 when 84 Air Force Cadets at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, all came down with flu symptoms, simultaneous, Reuters did not carry the story. Why not? I mean come on, a simple data dump. Just spill the beans, 84 cadets are sick with the flu, they are being tested for the porcine flu. When late Friday night, July 10, 2009 it was confirmed that the first 15 of the 84 did in fact test positive for swine flu, and that now with one day there were 89 sick with the same illness, guess what? Reuters did not carry that story. And the rest of the media (CBS, NBC, Fox) did not highlight this building drama, but buried it under "Michael Jackson Memorial" reporting. Did I just employ the word "reporting?" Sorry about that. I must have lost my senses. (But did you hear the latest about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, no, I am serious, did you hear?) (Me neither.) Wouldn't it just make natural sense to make the connection, that the 1918-1919 Flu Pandemic spread like crazy through military bases first, and then introduced itself to literally the whole world, and this before airline travel? Take this seriously. The flu is serious, I mean just the regular old common "just the flu" influenza. It kills over 400,000 people a year all around the world, and we are talking about just the garden-variety flu, nothing special, nothing scary. Just the simple, almost cute flu kills more people every year than does AIDS, cancer and heart attacks combined. Maybe you SHOULD feel just a tad of panic, just a healthy dose, a tiny jolt, just to get your blood pumping. Maybe some of that blood will work its way up to your big pile of noodles. And when a pattern begins to repeat, the very same pattern that happened in 1918, with some simple, almost silly new flu peeking up at us, giggling and tickling us, and the newspapers say: "Oh how silly!" Perhaps you should get smart. Start thinking. When the "media" tells you about magical Tamiflu, don't be stupid. Before any real data was in, President Obama was already declaring the flu party line: "It ain't be serious, you ain't got nothin' to be worryin' about. Everying is going to be okay." Return to the wise of the ages and make use of the very real healing plants that Someone put in place for our use, Someone smarter than all the scientists of the ages combined. Wake up. Do not trust what the TeeVee tells you.
Ginger-Oregano-Garlic "Flu Tonic"
This is the recipe for a healthy, organic, all-natural concentrated "tonic," to add to green tea. Obtain your ingredients, organic if possible, at any natural food store or health food store.
Ginger Root (1 pound)
Oregano Leaves (4 ounces)
Head of Garlic, skins and all (4-5)
Ginger Spice (powdered, 4 tablespoons)
Oregano Spice (dried, 4 tablespoons)
Garlic Spice (kernels or powder, 2 tablespoons)
Red Onions (2)
Dice and chop the ginger, oregano and garlic thoroughly, and add to a crockpot (slow cooker) with thoroughly boiled water (or purified water, filtered). Cook this all day (12 hours). At the end of the day allow the thickened "stew" to cool. Strain the liquid (expelling as much as possible from the ginger, oregano and garlic "dregs") using a ladle or soup spoon into a gallon-size glass bottle (apple cider bottle, wine jug, etc., after thoroughly sterilizing and cleansing). You should be able to fill about half the bottle with the liquid expressed from the cooked solids. Fill the remainder of the bottle with purified water, or, add boiling water to the expressed "waste" in the crockpot, and then extract additional tonic and fill the remainder of the bottle this way. Refrigerate. (Note: the "waste" or dregs remaining in the crockpot can be saved to add to stews, or it can be dried for an aromatic potpourri, or it can be shoved down the garbage disposal to cleanse that seldom cleansed place! Careful as these dregs are powerfully aromatic.)
This is a condensed "essence of ginger, oregano, and garlic." It is a strong, spicy beverage that can be added to green tea, soup, or stew. At the first signs of illness, anything seeming flu related, brew a cup of green tea and add half a cup of the Flu Tonic to the green tea, and add honey and pure lemon juice (the honey and lemon juice are optional, but both have powerful curative properties independently). You can also heat the Flu Tonic by itself and drink it straight, but caution, as it packs some wallop.
Not only tasty, but chiefly healthy cabbage, there is some evidence that sauerkraut can take on the bird flu, and by association, swine flu as well. Plus, sauerkraut is cheap, and can be "snuck" inside many dishes (not all children are crazy about sour cabbage, although as a child I loved it, with baked beans and hot dogs). At the first sign of flu, heat up the sauerkraut. Stock up on sauerkraut.
Chicks, Pigs, Humans
Chickens, at one time, were considered birds, or at least fowl. A standard chicken could flap its wings and actually fly a short distance; as a boy I observed a chicken fly over a fence and land about five feet beyond the wires. It was flying. Well, perhaps not actually flying, but it did go airborne for a few moments. Glorified hopping.
The chicken of today, those machine-raised as a food product of the Vast American Food Machine (feeding the world), can no longer perform such a feat as flying a short distance. The chicken of today, more like a factory part, can barely walk. It cannot flap its wings. It has been designer-bred to be fatter, fatter, and fatter. The chicken of today is weak and unhealthy, and can hardly survive to beyond one year of age. That is why their "seed" is laced with antibiotics, to aid them in surviving an unhealthy "childhood." And the media, the very same media that pushed and pressed the supernatural abilities of Obama and sold the American public at a very low cost, has also pushed the notion that "chicken" is a...I might as well just come out and say it, that chicken is a... ...health food. Can you believe it? If so, you probably voted for Obama, and are still waiting for him to finally walk upon the water and save humanity. Chicken, even when it was a normal bird, before genetic tampering and seed laced with blood and body parts from other animals, even at its "healthiest," chicken was a fragile, barely "clean" animal. Today, if you are consuming chicken, you are eating a death warrant, and you are the only one enforcing the order. But it sure is handy in a Happy Meal, ain't it? A couple of decades ago the average American ate about 15 pounds of chicken. And this is when chickens were pretty much normal animals. Today? 75 pounds. To relate a personal anecdote, when I was a child, about the age of eight or nine, I accompanied my father to a poultry (a large farm with free-ranging chickens). It was different back then. My father wanted to purchase several chickens and a rooster so that we could harvest our own eggs. We followed the owner of the poultry out admist a sea of clucking chickens. The chickens actually roamed and strutted, socialized and pecked happily. In these days chickens were actually fed grain, and most brilliant new age scientist-guided brains hadn't conceived of the notion of shoving blood and offal down a chicken's throat. But as we wandered through the chickens the owner would seize a chicken, feel its breast, and suddenly snap its neck. I was shocked, but I didn't say anything. It seemed savage. Brutal. This man who raised chickens was snapping their necks and tossing their dead bodies into a ditch. "Why are you breaking their necks?" my father enquired. "Cancer," the man said, softly. He explained that chickens are weak birds, very susceptible to cancer, and just about any other disease. He said that chickens with tumors wouldn't last long, and so whenever he came across a large tumor he had to terminate the chicken. "But nothing gets wasted." "What do you mean?" my father asked. "Oh every day a truck from Kentucky Fried Chicken comes along a buys all the chickens from the ditch." This was back then. The late 1960s, early 1970s, and things were different back then. My parents actually allowed me to walk the full mile to my grandparents' house, even when I was eight years old. Different world. Different times. Apparently, different brains. Today, the chicken kingpins raise their own tumors, uh, sorry, I meant their own chickens. Well, sort of chickens. Chicken-like, anyway. Who cares about the tumors? They probably taste better than the white meat, anyway. Today, we have SCIENCE. We have TECHNOLOGY. We know how to improve things, oh so improve them over how God designed them (or if you believe in Evolution, how the Big E evolved things, we can so improve on them, can't we?). Today we have the all-powerful Vast American Food Machine (feeding the world). With our big, wise brains, we as people, producers of people, we were brilliant enough to bloat cows with the blood and brains of sheep. Make the cows taste better, you know, Atkins diet and all that, all that extra protein. Mad cow disease. Ever hear of it? Most people today think it is a myth. The media, those giant brains down at the TeeVee station, they probably convinced you that mad cow disease never happened, well, at least not here, or only over with the Brits, and they don't count, really, do they? They aren't Americans. The Land of the Free, the Home of the Brave, we wouldn't accept mad cows, would we? We put our cows through anger management. Our cows are even tempered. No, they are downright nice, dadgumit. Long, long before "mad cow" became an exciting buzz word, Americans had a kind of cow called a "downer." Sometimes these downers, or droppers would just clunk over and lay there panting until they were "put down" for good. Others would stagger around, frothing at the mouth, until they too were "put down" for good. Funny, huh? Ain't that a knee-slapper? But these were not mad cows, oh no, come on, these were "downers." Much better on the pocketboot, actually. And quietly, quietly, "downers" still keel over in America, the Land of the Brave, the Home of the Brave, wise inventor of the Vast American Food Machine (feeding the world). See the dropper? See the downer? The same big brains that wisely fed cows (cows are vegetarian by nature) blood, offal, dead flesh, to improve their taste by making them fatter, also came up with the great big ole idea of feeding chickens dead pig, and feeding pigs dead chicken (you know, improve the taste with all that Atkins protein?). Nothing wrong with that, is there? I mean, it is legal, today, to do this. Regardless of the mad cow result, we figure nothing like that could happen to pigs, or chickens, could it? Sure, mad cow, okay, but that was cows; we all know that pigs are a very different story, I mean come on, these guys are tough, you could drop a neutron bomb on a herd of swine and plenty of them would survive. They'd probably be more tender (oops, didn't mean to give the Vast American Food Machine [feeding the world] a new great money-making idea). Sure, they'd still taste great (perhaps pork would then taste a tad more like chicken). God says that eating pigs is a no-no, and the "men of God" come back with: "Oh, just cook it properly. You understand, God didn't know much about cooking in them cavemen days." We're talking chicken, okay? We're talking health food, baby. Everyone knows that. Media says so. And those news people are smart. Ever see that earpiece? They are plugged in. Agent Smith all the way. Direct link to Wikipedia. They know. Oh yes, they know, and you should listen. You do listen. Listen to the media. Food is good. Good is food. Listen to all the wise ones, they will tell you that God created animals to be food. Regardless of what Genesis Chapter One says, they say that God created animals to be food. And we have improved on what God created. So to ruminate, just a tad, let's think about it. Stir up the gray matter. We grind up pigs and feed the mess to chickens. We grind up chickens and feed the mess to pigs... ...then we are shocked when Swine Flu, H1N1 turns out to be an amalgamated virus comprised of chicken strains, pig strains, and human strains. Huh, wonder how that happened. Wonder of wonders. It is a mystery. Go figure. Who can say. Forget the very real point that beef did not carry bovine spongiform encephalopathy until fed ground sheep brains, and that brilliant people interested in making better cows engineered that very practice, you know, for the good of all (feeding the world and all that). But that is all unrelated. Media says so, and if they don't, oh they will. You just watch (and you do watch, don't you?). But still, they grind up the meat and feed it to the, well, to the meat. Feeding the processed meat to the meat in process. I suppose that cannibalism is good (someday, and perhaps someday soon, you just may get the chance to see just how good, and the media will have your back on that one, and perhaps your front as well, with lots of sauce). Someone I know and love wondered to me, with the way people are today, with all their brilliant conceptions and practices, what if they are grinding up people and feeding corpse flesh to chickens, and to pigs (not to cows, though, no, that would be unlawful, you remember the myth of the mad cow, don't you?). Why waste your resources, and Americans produce quite a quantity of dead people, every day. What if that was happening now? Would you care? Could the slogan I see dead people be changed literally to I eat dead people, and would you care? Soylent Green, make room! Make room! Would the sticking point be that, hey, meat tastes good, and who cares what the suckers eat, they look just fine when packaged in bright, tight plastic and plunked down at Wal-mart, just great. Mmmm, yum. Now I'm not claiming that eating pig gives you the flu. That would just be downright silly. I'm not claiming that eating chicken gives you the flu. Come on, health food, giving you the flu? Think of all the chickens slain in Asia when bird flu raised its ugly head (the big chicken). What a waste of meat, right? Why would they do that, kill millions of chickens when you can't catch the flu by eating it? And think of them Canadians, up there hiding at the top of the map, killing pigs when the porkers come down with swine flu, why in the heck do they DO that, anyway? I mean Americans could teach the Canadians and the Asians that you don't have to kill off all your stock. Just start packaging the tasty meat, and fast, because everyone knows you can't get the flu by eating the meat. That's just silly. Right? But how big of an epiphany do you need to experience, before you make the connection that we are what we eat, and when we become what we eat we also become susceptible to what our food is prone to catching. Great big brainstorm there, isn't it? How sucksceptible are you? We are what we eat. Ever hear that? Well, to a large part, it is true. Our bodies take the food we consume and generate new cells out of the material, so in a good strong sense, we really are what we eat. We become what we eat. Hmmm, I wonder how it is that these viruses just kind of naturally find a way to jump from species to species? With the average American consuming over 75 pounds of chicken a year (compared to 15 pounds, less than two decades ago), you don't think this somehow alters the genetic make-up of the person consuming all this "food?" And pork, the "other white meat," you don't think that alters your genetic make-up? Chicken is a health food. That's what you've been sold. Pork is a "white meat," and so you know that it is healthy, regardless of what the Bible says about it (come on guys, I mean the news media have them cool earpieces, and you know God doesn't have those, so how in the world could God know as much as the media?). Because we improve things don't we? God gave us animals as food, and we improve that food by grinding it up and feeding it to our other food. That's just one of the things that makes us so, well, um, brainy, let's face it, we are smarter than God, aren't we? Isn't that the message. I've actually heard "Christians" say that all that health message stuff in the Old Testament is garbage, it is just for the Jews, and God doesn't care what people eat, that's why He made animals as food. Animals as food. No wonder we think chicken is health food, that pork is white meat and that white meat is good. We'll buy anything. We are consumers, after all. Let's get this economy back on its feet by consuming, consuming, and more consuming. But again, I wonder (I might just be a little slow): "Hmmm, I wonder how that intra-species jump takes place?" And we won't even go into the "flu shot," the myth of some serum, or syrup, that somehow protects us from the flu. Injecting particles from chicken feathers into our blood stream? Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. In many ways it appears to be the very best possible means, way, pathway to prepare a person for the jump. This is science baby, and you better buy it, or you are not American, and if you ain't American, then what are you? What, like a member of the world? How silly is that? Almost like an inoculation, think about it, where you take either a disease that is dead and introduce it to the human body so that the body will respond by generating its own natural defenses to that dead disease and thus protect the body against the living disease, or in a more dangerous way inoculating by introducing a weakened version of the living disease (with far less spectacular results, and much more dangerous results). But this is not what happens with flu inoculations. They are worthless because when the influenza virus mutates it is almost a military tactic to get around past tolerance and defensive build-up. In other words, the flu is figuring out a new way in, and the old locks on the door just don't work. So sorry, but you've been fed a lie. That stockpile of flu antivirus? Do you really think it exists, and that if it exists, it will somehow protect you from the coming Great Flu Pandemic? So sorry. But you have the media, you will always have them, and they have a product to sell you, one that will make you happy. They are the media, and they know just about everything, and they report that there is a great stockpile of antivirus piled up, oh goody, and so don't panic, everything is good, go shopping, stop by a fast-food delightery, and have yourself a healthy chicken burger. Amen. Turn to someone next to you and say: "Original Recipe!" The media won't tell you that there is no such thing as medicine against influenza. "They" won't tell you this, why? Because they don't want you to panic. "Their" magic bullet is worthless. It is what is termed a placebo. Placebo means "I shall please" in Latin, and that is what the media is about, isn't it? Pleasing you? Placating us? Scaring us? Telling us "the truth?" The "Media" (and yes I did just use a capital "M") is our placebo. It makes me feel better. It makes you feel better. It shall please, shall it not? Don't get a flu shot. If you have had a flu shot in the past, repent, and feel guilty about it, and get on with your life, but don't get any more. You ding dong. Instead, take some intelligent precautions. First, stop eating chicken, and pork. No, eating chicken and pork doesn't give you the flu, but YES, eating both chicken and pork does make you more like chicken and pork (and yes, they are cute, I ain't dithin' you), and both creatures are unhealthy to consume. Stop eating such crap. And yes I did just use the big "C" word, crap. And you're smart, aren't you? You should know better in the first place, that's why I listed it first, not that I automatically list things that you ought to know better about in the first place. Well, at least in the first place. How could you be so stupid as to eat something that is admittedly filthy in the first place, and then compounded in stupidity by submitting it to the Vast American Food Machine (feeding the world), our blessedly gigantic factory that blessedly channels its products and produce through a Wal-mart near you? Just cut it out. Knock it off. El Zippo. Think about it. It is relatively simplistic: you like the taste of chicken and pork, you eat them, you need them, you buy them. This habit creates a need as the grocery stores see the chicken and pork disappearing from their shelves. They place more orders. The "chicken farmers" and "pig farmers" grow more, big dollar signs appearing in their eyes. More chickens, more pigs, all crammed together, creating literal lakes of feces, and people wander in and out of this, and as we know, viruses have become very slick in making the leap from humans to pigs, from pigs to humans, from chickens to humans, and from humans to chickens. The only thing missing from the puzzle? The last leap. From either chickens to pigs, or from pigs to chickens. That's when people will know true, utter, irrevocable TERROR. And when it happens, the first thing the Government is going to say to you is: DON'T PANIC. Start eating more leafy greens, lettuce, broccoli, spinach (and the vegetables that have caused problems recently? it was all-wise feces-contamination by the Vast American Food Machine [feeding the world], tainted by pools, literal lakes of animal feces, leaking, always spreading, through and through, but shhhh, the media doesn't want you to know that, or if you know it, you need to forget about it; but do yourself a favor and pick up two books, Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser, and The End of Food by Paul Roberts, both of them highly unmedia friendly, if that makes sense, and both books link together nicely and fairly represent how food is processed, and how we are on a spiraling out-of-control "food-for-profit" extravaganza that will ultimately break down, yes that Vast American Food Machine [feeding the world] and probably very much sooner than later). Start boiling your water and storing it before you drink it. Don't drink it straight from the tap. Or get yourself some of that bottled water. Start eating more organic vegetables, and wash them good, cook them good, cook them well, eat more cabbage, and please, start using two herbs in your foods, and taking in capsule form, ginger and oregano, and possibly most important of all start eating seeds, seeds, and more seeds, especially flax seeds (that's the little seeds scattered all over this page, flax seeds, yes, I did say flax seeds, oh, and don't forget the flax seeds). Did I mention flax seeds? I don't remember. But, yes, flax. Seeds. Eat leafy greens, and don't forget the ginger, and the oregano. You should not panic. A panic doesn't in any way help the thinking. But don't be stupid. Stupidity doesn't help the brain either. Start making smart decisions. It is not too late, although it is almost too late.
Ginger (the herb)
Purchase several bottles of ginger, the cooking herb, and begin to add it to your food. Pick it up as an organic powder for cooking. Also, pick up ginger in capsules (again, find it in an organic form). Ginger distinctly provides aid for any stomach condition, nervousness or sea sickness, travel sickness, morning sickness, and it is a powerful tool for digestion and cleansing the intestines and colon. Ginger also aids other herbs. Any other herb taken with ginger works better than alone. Ginger strengthens the immune system. I have found ginger to be helpful in fighting the common cold, but it seems to be even more effective against the flu (ginger does not seem to aid in respiratory illness, but in intestinal or stomach maladies). But pick up the common spice ginger, now, to aid in fighting the flu:
Seek out ginger at your nearest health food store, and get a good pure organic capsule version.
Oregano (the herb)
Purchase several bottles of oregano, the cooking herb, and begin to add it to your food. Pick it up as an organic spice for cooking. Also, pick up oregano, especially "oil of oregano" in capsules (again, find it in an organic form). Oregano oil is both an anti-fungal and anti-viral, and also kills parasites in the intestinal tract. There is a very powerful, concentrated version of oregano oil, called Oreganol, which only requires one tiny drop beneath the tongue (it can make you smell kind of bad, similar to garlic, although people generally describe you as emitting the scent of "pencil shavings"). Oreganol is powerful, but very expensive, even the tiniest bottles can cost you over $40. I suggest a daily dosage, taken as a vitamin supplement, of the inexpensive oregano oil (but have a bottle of Oreganol on hand, the high-potency version, in case of severe illness — it can even be used as a topical oil for external skin conditions).
Grapefruit Seed Extract
Grapefruit Seed Extract is another powerful, potent, and most importantly natural product to aid in battling viruses and bacterias. I personally have been using this product for several years; I know trusted people who swear by GSE and have treated a variety of illnesses successfully.
Apple Cider Vinegar
This is amazing stuff, truly (but you need the natural kind, not the cheapo stuff that is merely white vinegar with the addition of a drop or two of apple juice). I heartily recommend the Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar (their Liquid Aminos are great, as well), and feel it actually did cure the arthritis just first rearing its ugly head in my knuckles and in one arm, and while it did not cure my asthma, it DID drive it deep down where I seldom experience any flare-ups, and am completely off any expensive and destructive asthma medications. My wife has broken one foot two times, and the only pain remedy she has ever used has been apple cider vinegar (about two tablespoons added to her water bottle), and she only ever uses this remedy when she begins to experience the pain in her foot (the doctors feel that arthritis is unavoidable in such a damaged foot). The best method of delivery is by adding apple cider vinegar to your water, but it can also be added to tea (and in the Winter, it is absolutely wonderful added to Hot Spiced Apple Cider, cooked in a crockpot with real sticks of cinnamon and a spiraled orange, and lots of cloves, with perhaps three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar added to a gallon of oranic apple cider, this drink not only tastes great in a festive way, but it is a wonderful shield against the flu and the ever-stalking rhino virus), and even taken in capsule form (although I haven't found this to be as beneficial, but with some positive effect).
The Nasal Flush
One inexpensive tool you must obtain is the NeilMed Sinus Rinse Allergy & Sinus Kit. Seriously, for $12.99 you can't go wrong. For my whole life, beginning when I was under a year of age, my body has been susceptible to the common cold, the rhino virus (possibly it has something to do with the Cyrano-like proportions of my schnoz, my proboscis), but I have tried everything under the sun, and have found that nothing is new (including ginger; however, ginger was the first ever thing that aided me in battling the common cold, but I did somehow come down with some debilitating colds even while consuming ginger, even while SNORTING ginger, which I do not recommend). But a friend suggested I try the nasal flush and even upon first usage I knew this was a powerful tool, and have since combatted back cold after cold (in about six months only one cold has burst through the nasal flush barrier, but that cold only survived about 3 days, compared to the two or three weeks that cold usually bombard me). Even the MayoClinic recommends the nasal flush. I highly recommend you incorporate this into your fight against both cold and flu (as the nose is the main entryway for both cold and flu). I have tried the supplied solution mixtures (comprised of salt and baking soda) and prefer to use pure, organic sea salt. You might wish to start out much milder, but I generally fight a cold (when it shows itself in its first symptoms) with three bottles of flush, with a teaspoon of sea salt for each bottle (and always use boiled water, only after it has cooled of course, or use pure water, purified water,or specially filtered water — you don't want to be running the chlorine through your nasal passages that permeates tap water, yes it kills germs, but it is better if it doesn't kill you as well). It is important to keep your mouth open when you irrigate your nasal passages, and breathe out slowly. Your first tries will be weird, and not too pleasant, but with some usage, perhaps after a week of using the nasal flush, it actually becomes enjoyable, and clears out your nose better than any Kleenex ever did, and the salt water is extremely healing. I use the nasal flush bottle whenever my nose feels stuffy, and when the rhino virus begins to rear its ugly head, I might flush three or four times throughout the day (and while in the throes of a bad cold, I have found that using warmer water with more sea salt is highly effective). Carolena has found that the nasal flush is the best defense against allergies, and with one flush she can obtain peace for an entire day, without her eyes turning red and watering due to pollen influx. My children have also gotten used to doing the nasal flush (with the aid of Mama or Papa) and even 5-year-old Wolfy has come to enjoy the flush (it took several gentle, and I repeat gentle, attempts, before he actually smiled, so there were some sessions with some tears) 6-year-old Dirklan has had no problems and from the beginning enjoyed the nasal flush. Bronte, eight years old, generally feels some pressure in her ears that she does not like, but has also come to enjoy the nasal flush. Of course, it depends on the the children and their particular mood of the day, because somedays I might say the word "flush" and they instantly burst into simultaneous tears, while on another day they jump up and down and demand to be first. If any ear sensitivity occurs, lower your head (as the Olympic swimmers generally do) down near your knees, and gently squeeze the nostrils as you gently expel your breath through your nose, slowly turning your head in a tilt roll from right to left, releasing air for five to seven seconds from each nostril, by turns. Gently, gently. Do not boom out a foghorn blast from your nose. This is all about relieving pressure in your nasal passages and ear canal. I have found that if you flush the water gently and slowly up through your nose, there is absolutely no sensitivity in the ears. It does take some practice. (But don't give up on your first try. Work at it. Practice.) You don't have to flush your nose every day. Just do it when your nose starts bothering you and when Kleenex just can't pull off the feat. Or when you feel like you're getting a cold. Plus, you'll feel much better after you flush, so you just might start flushing every day, but you don't have to. It is a great tool to have when the flu starts spreading out of control. Then you might wish to flush three times a day.

The Gut Bomb
Recently I was seized by some intestinal bug, and it was nasty and slammed me flat onto my back for two days, and about the only coherent thought I could express was: "No. Okay, no. No. Okay, that's about it. No." But on the third day, with the fever gone, with my guts still tender and communicating imminent attacks by Montezuma and friends, I finally was able to think: "Oh, yeah, that's right. Ginger and Oregano."
I stumbled downstairs and took four ginger capsules, swallowed them with water, then took four oregano oil capsules. Within two hours all tenderness in my guts was gone. It would take a whole day more to feel 100 percent, but the "gut bomb" (as I first thought of it) really did blow the illness out of me. One week later my wife fell ill with the same bug, and since I was able to think clearly I immediately gave her the "gut bomb" (as she is half my size I only gave her two ginger capsules and two oregano oil capsules) and within four hours she was feeling better and by the next day she was up and around (so at half the dose she was able to miss two thirds of the illness that I experienced). It works. And I suffered this illness just days prior to the Swine Flu breakout in Mexico. Coincidence? Don't believe me. You have absolutely no reason why you should believe me. But what I ask of you is that you purchase the oregano oil and ginger, both in capsules and in cooking spice form, and just keep them on hand in case of a massive breakout of a super pandemic. At the most you might be investing $50 (a little more if you invest in the Oreganol), and as nothing else works, you might try this remedy. Also, read my experience with coincidence that led me to "discovering" ginger. I still don't know quite what to think about coincidence (is it really "hints" from God to get our attention?), but I do know that it led me to "ginger" as a very real medicine, one that works, and is almost free it is so cheap, and can be purchased literally anywhere at any time (stock up).
Black Elderberry. A flu-fighting cough syrup that is all natural (at least search and find the all-natural variety at your closest health food store). Boost the immune system with a virus/bacteria-battler, actually proven in clinical tests to fight influenza.
Handwashing and the Flu
Regardless of the report, when "flu" or "influenza" is mentioned, the quick word is always added: "The best way to control the flu and protect yourself against the flu is to wash your hands!" Granted, most people of the world are almost ignorant when it comes to something as simplistic as cleanliness (and when I say "people of the world," Americans are right up there at the top with their dirty, dirty hands). People I know and love have informed me that they don't see the reason for it, that it is a negative activity, that it kills the fauna and flora on the hands, and I'm talking about an absence of washing the hands even when fecal matter is involved. They have gotten it into their heads that they should not wash their hands, regardless of what they have been into, or what has come out of them. Wash the hands. This should be obvious; however, this is an external measure. The absolute only way it helps is if your hand chances upon the flu virus on the handle of a shopping cart, on a restroom door, or on anything out in the open where strangers have passed. The flu virus can live up to 24 hours on an object, even outside in the open world. Money changing hands can carry more than dollars and cents. If you have a skin abrasion or paper cut, you can catch the flu. If you lift your hand to your face to scratch an itch, or to move the hair out of your eyes, the flu virus can make it into your eyes, nose or mouth.
Note: You don't have to bump into someone, or touch someone to catch the flu. You only need to sit in the same chair they sat in, and the flu will gladly wait 24 hours for you to "take a seat." Washing the hands does nothing against the flu once a person has caught the flu, or when the flu has caught the person. The flu can also pass from person to person via the air, started upon a sneeze, and sailing about for a place to land, and your nose looks like a most excellent landing strip, your mouth looks almost exactly like a bull's eye. The media, on the other hand, wants you to believe that washing your hands somehow fights the flu when it is in you, that it is somehow magic.
So washing the hands is good, but not the magical bullet the media portrays (I should note, there is NO magic bullet in fighting the flu, not garlic or colloidal silver or flu shots or even ginger and oregano — these things are ONLY ammunition in a very real microbial war. I repeat, there is no magic bullet, and handwashing is meaningless AFTER catching the flu. Period.). Washing the hands is a simple ingredient in preventing the flu virus from spreading; however, once you have contracted the flu, washing your hands means absolutely nothing.
When out in the world it is probably wise to wash the hands with antibacterial soap (at home, however, I suggest having good "softsoap," without the antibacterial, which does kill benevolent parasites along with the malevolent), but if you have a choice, always go with the non-antibacterial soap. Just plain soap and water are best, and surprise surprise, you should spend a good thirty seconds washing your hands (I witness on almost a daily basis men departing a restroom and literally turning on the water, dashing their hands through the stream as if they were passing their hand over a candle flame, and turning off the water to get a paper towel; this kind of "handwashing" is worthless, and does more harm than good, as it perpetuates germs, both from the guy doing the dunking, it spreads his germs, plus he picks up germs from the sink which he carries away). Antibacterial soaps do not kill viruses, but only bacteria. Antibacterial products most notably are aiding bacteria in becoming more and more resistant to antibacterial products. This means that germs are getting tougher, stronger, and meaner. In an identical fashion to the very real problem of germs gaining muscle against antibiotics.

Surviving the Cytokine Storm
In an Apocalyptic Influenza Pandemic, the Number 1 killer is pneumonia, which happens when the flu virus attacks and batters the lungs, inadvertently opening an angle of attack to bacterial infection, chiefly pneumonia. But in the very odd groupings of death, involving relatively healthy, young, strong people with the best immune systems, the cause of death seems to be the Cytokine Storm (which science does not fully understand, nor in many cases even believe in the reality of a Cytokine Storm). Cytokine, pronounced "sigh-toe-kigh-n," means "cell movement," from the Greek. In short, what it means to die of a Cytokine Storm is being hacked, attacked, and decimated, not by the flu, but death due to an overreaction to an unknown foe by your own immune system. I reiterate, science does not understand it; the whole medical community is only guessing at how all this works, e.g., the immune system, WHY it works, and how and why it sometimes goes berserk, utterly whacko. And as crazy as it sounds, some experts feel the way to deal with this Cytokine Storm state of emergency, is to turn OFF the immune system (thus it cannot attack you). The cytokines are the immune system cells which carry messages between cells, producing a fatal loop of frenzied activity and armament overload, wherein the warrior cells start blasting everything, not just influenza viruses or pneumonia bacterial infections, but all the surrounding healthy cells. It is like the police hearing that there is a serial killer in the neighborhood and calling in a nuclear strike to ensure that the killer is wiped out for good (unfortunately, there goes the neighborhood, as well). When a Cytokine Storm brews in the lungs, macrophages flash like lightning, an overabundance of immune cells rumble like thunder, and the air to the lungs can literally be choked off entirely, like a flash flood of cold water, and the person who was healthy only hours before, can suddenly drown in the flood of their own immune system. In the 1918-1919 Spanish Flu Pandemic, what troubled doctors the most, and the repeating nightmare that even freaked out the most famous and battle-hardened scientists, was the fact that strong, healthy soldiers, well-fed and completely disease free, suddenly became ill with the flu, and sometimes within HOURS of showing symptoms, the men would be dead. Even while becoming sick in a hospital. Shortly before death, their faces turned black. Their lungs filled with heavy water. Other horrific symptoms (which should really never escape from a Stephen King novel) included air gathering beneath the skin, and when the dying patients moved it made a ghastly crackling sound. Some healthy, strong men actually broke their ribs. Coughing. Fighting to breathe, they coughed to death. The good news is that people do survive Cytokine Storms (although to the best of my knowledge and reading, there is no magic bullet or super pallative to just "make it go away"). But if you can survive three days, then the Cytokine Storm should abate (from my understanding, many strong people either suffer permanently disability after surviving a Cytokine Storm, or must endure a very length rehabilitation process). The bad news is that there is no clear-cut methodology for dealing with the Cytokine Storm, not defeating it, not even sidestepping it like getting out of the way of a runaway elephant. I think Sambucus is a good way to aid the cytokines; however, many experts feel that since Sambucus aids cytokine production, it could literally tee-off the Cytokine Storm for a long drive into a hole in one (metaphorically speaking, which ain't good for us). But I think the natural herb elderberry cushions the immune system, like providing a healthy police force with something extra, that "just something extra," such as bulletproof vests, spring-loaded nightsticks, and steel-toed boots. No, none of this makes for an invincible policeman, but that extra edge just might be enough. In other words, don't withdraw support from the immune system, but give it a helping hand. Also, again, repetitiously so, Ginger and Oregano, which can kind of cushion the immune system, as well as maintaining a constant heavy moisure in the air from vaporizers, which just might impede the flu virus enough to soothe and settle down the cytokines (if they see the flu invaders coming at them tangled as in a three-legged race, they just might not panic and call in a nuclear strike). Stick with the Flu Angle of Attack, and I don't think the Cytokine Storm will prove an issue, for you or your loved ones. And remember, provide as much love as you can, and pray, seriously, even if you are not a spiritual person, or a religious person, it does not matter. Prayer might just prove that small edge you need, because it is proven to work (and you might believe it is an answer from a loving God, or possibly you think it is just mind power, whatever, DO IT).
Great Pandemic: Beasts of the Earth
All the experts agree, the Great Pandemic is coming, and perhaps this outbreak of H1N1 Swine Flu is not the Great Pandemic (but watch out this Fall 2009, as pandemics generally peek weakly in the Spring, and then PEAK monstrously in the Fall). Remember, these deadly influenza dangers are coming from birds and animals (and don't forget the mad cow), and these "plagues" are primarily due to men (in their great saving genius) tampering with the animals and feeding them things they should never be fed (but oh are we smart, remember, smarter than God Himself). Gathering the animals into massive feces-producing holocaust grounds, like no animal should ever be treated, not singly, nor in vast groups. This present danger is from the beasts of the earth, but chiefly because of "man" in his towering hubris and lust for power and wealth:
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8
Remember. You are what you eat. Remember. It is almost too late. Remember. Seek Truth. Remember, there is hope. Remember, there is very real rest. Remember to remember.

Some Tough Flu Questions and Answers:
What is the best way to fight the flu naturally? Answer: Follow the seven steps in the Flu Angle of Attack presented at the top of this web page. Improve your health. Improving your overall health improves your immune system. Improving your immune system gives you the very best tool in fighting the flu, and utilizing natural herbs as a method of fighting the flu aids in protecting your body from the very tool that should be its best protection, yes, your immune system. The worst-case scenario is when a new virulent flu emerges, your immune system so over-reacts that your immune might end up killing the very prize it has been set in place to protect, your body. Boost and protect your immune system with all-natural Sambucus Immune Tonic.
Can I really fight the flu with natural herbs? Answer: Yes you can, and yes you should. Obtain Ginger, Oregano, Garlic, and switch to soy milk, I recommend Silk, and start drinking at least three glasses a day. Eat more salads with natural Apple Cider Vinegar.
Don't I need powerful drugs and modern chemicals to have any hope whatsoever in fighting the flu? Answer: NO! Time and again it is proven that flu drugs and other chemical remedies are only placebos and do not do any good in fighting the flu.
Does garlic aid in the war against flu? Answer: YES. Put up with the smelliness (at least it is a medicinal smell). Begin to add garlic to your food. Eat more garlic bread. Garlic fights both viruses and bacteria. Garlic is not as effective as Ginger and Oregano, but it works well with both herbs.
Does the consumption of Ginger and Oregano really give me a fighting chance against the flu? Answer: Yes it does! Consume more and greater quantities of both ginger and oregano. Fight the flu naturally with both ginger and oregano. Use the spices and the supplements.
Can't I trust my Government to give me the best information in fighting the flu? Answer: No you cannot trust your Government to give you the best information, as the Government always goes first with the premise that you and your neighbors are stupid, helpless, and any form of truth will only make you panic. If they can keep you immobile, keep you from taking action, then they are safe in their seats of power, these Government brains. Seek the TRUTH, not lies. The Truth is out there.
Can herbs boost my immune system? Answer: YES, herbs and vegetables, especially organically grown, do boost your immune system. And the fact is the public has been programmed to distrust and dislike natural herbs and vegetables, scornfully reducing them to the term: "carbohydrate," dismissively losing the one thing that can protect them. Eat leafy salads, sprinkled with pure olive oil and oregano and ginger and garlic. Carbohydrates are what heal you, not proteins from meat. Eat more and more fruits, lots of fruits. Eat apples and bananas and blueberries and peaches, apricots, cherries, and oodles of avocados.
Are herbs better and safer than flu vaccines and flu shots and flu jabs? Answer: Certain vaccines are beneficial and do protect you; however, it has become a common practice to "boost" vaccines with mercury and other positively proven poisons (which are utterly negative to the human body). The truth is, as flu experts agree, there is absolutely no way to protect against the flu when it is in the process of mutating, and even taking an older formula for an older strain, any doctor will tell you that you might still get the flu, that there is only basic, minimum protection against the flu even with a perfect match, vaccine to flu strain. Plus, you get all the extra-credit poisons that are purposely packed into the "vaccine." Stay away from flu shots and vaccines.
How can I have a fighting shot in fighting the flu? Answer: Get healthy, NOW. Start exercising more. Switch to a healthy vegetarian diet. Vegetarians are safer as a whole in fighting the flu. Drink more pure water. Drink green tea, at least two glasses a day. Add ginger and oregano to your diet, both as spices, and supplements in capsule form. Us the NeilMed Sinus Flush for better nose, ear, and throat health. Add sauerkraut to your diet.
What are the flu basics? Answer: Wash your hands whenever among strangers, and wash your hands often. Improve your hygiene practices. Eat healthier, keep your body rested (take every seventh day, Saturday, off, rest from all work, and pray more, contemplate creation). Follow the seven steps in the above Flu Angle of Attack.
Will a seasonal flu vaccine aid me in fighting the flu? Answer: The seasonal flu is almost worthless in fighting the seasonal flu it has been created to fight, and is utterly worthless in fighting either Avian Flu or Swine Flu.
Is it safe to eat pork, can eating pork aid me in fighting the flu? Answer: Eating pork has absolutely NEVER been safe (the human body is so miraculous that you could actually live for a while on Twinkies and Ding Dongs, raw rat meat and dirt, and yet this is not a good diet to feed and heal the miraculous machine that is your body). There is a very good reason that when flu breaks out in pigs and birds that the entire herds and flocks are willfully executed, and either burned or buried. It is not safe to eat. And eating pork and chicken is one of the reasons that flu exists in the first place. You are what you eat, and the closer you become to being a pig, the more things in common with them you will share.
Is eating chicken safe, and can it aid me in fighting the flu? Answer: No, eating chicken is no longer safe. Even chicken that is now being raised organically, due to the fact that generationally the poor bird has been so degraded that it would take it hundreds of generations of healthful living to get back to being a natural animal (if it is even possible, with all the willful misbreeding that has taken place to make "the chicken" a delicious snack for you to snorfle). DO NOT EAT CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP. Instead, eat healthy Tofu Noodle Soup, it is much better for you.
What about the NeilMed Nose Flush, will it build up my immune system and wash the flu virus from my nose and throat? Answer: Yes. Pick up one of these inexpensive kits at a Walgreens or other drugstore, and use it whenever nasal congestion occurs, or when you get that tell-tale tickle in either your throat or nose. Flush out your system. Also, the Neti pot might work better for you. Don't be put off by your first attempt. If you suffer from colds or other nasal infections or problems, this is by far your very best tool.
Is gargling with salt water beneficial? Answer: Yes. Gargle very, very salty water (two tablespoons of sea salt per glass of warm water), and gargle long and deep. If you happen to drink a little bit of the salty water, that's okay (just don't quaff all of it).
What about sauerkraut, or sourkraut, does it really help, will sauerkraut help me fight the flu? Answer: Yes, it does. Eat it. Add onions and garlic to the sauerkraut, and vegetarian hot dogs. It's also great with mustard (my mouth has begun to water just writing about it).
What is the best natural method? Answer: Get healthy, stay healthy, lose weight, and be clean. Pray and trust in God. Get plenty of rest. Take off the seventh day of the week, Saturday (from Friday night, sundown, until Saturday night, sundown), and keep it as holy time.
Was the swine flu created in a laboratory? Is the swine flu really man-made? Answer: Most likely it was, as man is always his own worst enemy. This was more than likely an attempt to create wealth via vaccination, and the entrepreneurial Frankenstein has run amock, and has not done its worst as yet. Hopefully, the greedy, stupid people who set this monster loose, will be visited shortly by the monster's return.
Are vegetarians healthier than carnivores, and will a vegetarian stand a better chance in fighting the flu? Answer: Yes, definitely, certainly, without question. Vegetarians are much healthier than eaters of dead flesh, the flesh-eating carnivore. Vegetarians consume quite a lot more flavonoids, antioxidants, and superior life-giving carbohydrates (the public in general has been deceived into believing that "carbohydrate = bad = fat," whereas the truth is that natural carbohydrates, such as what comprises apples, carrots, leafy greens, beans and grains ARE WHAT GIVES HEALTH. It is true that carbohydrates that are processed into such things as Twinkies or other pastries, yes, these are bad.). Vegetarians generally care about their health, make healthy decisions, choose their diet and lifestyle based on health, ethics, love for others, love for animals, and come to rely on plant-based health, that which is found in herbs and vegetables and fruits and grains and nuts and seeds. A healthy person has a far better immune system. A meat-based diet is a known and proven link to cancer and other diseases. A vegetarian has a far better chance to surviving the swine flu than a carnivore (who usually consumes the swine and becomes like the swine, in a "you are what you eat" cycle of life and death). Make that life-affirming choice today, before it is too late, become a vegetarian!
Does humidity help fight the flu? Should I purchase a steam vaporizer? Answer: YES. Moms and country doctors have always known this. Purchase a cheap Vicks vaporizer, or in the case of emergency, boil water and keep it steaming to permeate the air with moisture. The flu prefers dry, dry, dry (and the dryer your throat and nasal passages, the better for flu entry, and for flu residency, and for eventual flu domination, and ultimately for flu victory; don't give it a chance, keep the vaporizers fired up).
Are ginger and oregano really the best herbs to fight the flu naturally? Answer: Ginger and Oregano are two of the best, and they work better together than apart, and even better in conjunction with Garlic, Elderberry, Apple Cider Vinegar, and most other natural herbs.
