Protection Against Viral Epidemics

Experts from around the world agree that if the bird flu mutates, millions could die. According to Dr. David Nabarro, Senior United Nations System Coordinator for Avian and Human Influenza at the World Health Organization, "it’s like a combination of global warming and HIV/Aids, 10 times faster than it’s running at the moment."

Experts from around the world agree that if the bird flu mutates, millions could die. According to Dr. David Nabarro, Senior United Nations System Coordinator for Avian and Human Influenza at the World Health Organization, “it’s like a combination of global warming and HIV/Aids, 10 times faster than it’s running at the moment.”

Powerful Antiviral Herb

It was recently discovered that the deadly 1918 Spanish flu, which swept the globe and killed an estimated 50 to 100 million people, was actually a bird-flu strain. The current avian virus clearly poses a serious global health threat, but the bird flu is far from incurable.

Natural medicines have demonstrated efficacy against this virus. A team of researchers at the Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC, found that wild oregano oil destroyed the coronavirus, which causes the common cold and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome), at a concentration of 0.01 percent in 20 minutes. The researchers also demonstrated that the oil was effective against the influenza A virus and, with in vitro tests, against the avian bird flu.

Wild oregano oil is also being studied for its ability to kill the avian virus. Used wisely and sparingly, it is safe with no known negative interactions. Oregano is a completely edible natural food. Its potency is due to the high natural content of molecular oxygen, a potent germicide.

Germ Fighters

In addition to wild oregano, the herbs cumin, sage, and cinnamon are also documented germicides. Cumin and sage may boost glutathione levels, the master antioxidant produced by the liver, by up to 700 percent. These spices protect the body from germ invasion. The combination of oregano, cumin, and sage was recently tested and found highly effective in killing a wide range of viruses.

It is also essential to boost the immune system with a nonsynthetic, natural-source vitamin C supplement, as well as with black seed, also known as black cumin (Nigella sativa). Your best chance for staying healthy, whether facing a bad cold and flu season or a massive pandemic, will be by using 100-percent natural whole food medicines that harness the power of nature.
