The Swine Flu epidemic is here.  It might not be so much the actual flu that is spreading at an alarming rate, but the fear and panic about the flu seem to be running rampant.

For healthy adults and children the H1N1 virus, commonly known as the Swine Flu, is no more deadly than the flu virus that spreads through the country every year about this time.

The best way to avoid getting the virus is to stay healthy and follow just a few basic rules about staying that way and keeping your body from becoming a welcome host to the virus.

The flu shot is not the end all be all savior that is has been said to be.  If you would like to learn more about the vaccination and the problems it has, you can read my blog post – Facts about the Flu Virus and its Vaccine.

The flu virus only has a couple of entry points where it can get into your body.  Those are the nostrils and the mouth and throat.  The virus is floating around pretty much everywhere but it’s not dangerous coming in contact with the virus as long as you take the precautions to not let it proliferate throughout your body.
In order to keep the virus from proliferating (multiplying and setting up shop in your body), you need to follow some simple steps while you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of the flu, whether it be the H1N1 flu virus or any other flu virus.

Here are several steps you can do to keep yourself healthy:

1. Frequent hand-washing with soap and for more than just a quick rinse.  Sing Happy Birthday to yourself a couple of times to make sure you have done a thorough job.

2. Do your best to keep your hands off your face. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face because this is where the flu virus has the best chance of entering your body.  I know it seems kind of a goofy thing to think about, but many of us use our fingers to pick something out of our teeth, we pick our nose (be honest, most of us do it from time to time), and we rub our eyes.

3. Gargle twice a day with warm salt water.  The flu virus, including the H1N1 Swine Flu, takes 2-3 days after the initial infection in the throat/ nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. By simply gargling each day you can help to prevent proliferation. This again seems like a simple thing to do, but just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s not powerful.  And an added bonus it is an inexpensive preventative step.

4. Another step you can do with the salt water is to clean your nostrils every day.  This one is a little tougher for a lot of us.  Maybe you have seen or even used a Neti Pot.  It lets you clean you sinuses with warm water.  If you aren’t into putting water up your nose, you can just blow your nose (hard) when you get up in the morning and then swab your nostrils with cotton swabs dipped in salt water.  This method has been shown to be effective in reducing the viral population that may be trying to set up shop in your body.

5. Boost your immune system naturally.  Vitamin C, whether from foods or supplements has been shown to help with your immunity.  Researchers have also come up with an all natural supplement that can boost your body’s ability to produce interferon.  Interferon has been shown to have a significant impact on helping the body’s natural immune system.

6. And finally, drink warm liquids when you can. This does pretty much the same thing as the gargling does.  It loosens up and washes off the viruses but instead of expelling them from the body, it sends them out of the throat and down into the stomach.  The acidic environment of the stomach kills the viruses and does not allow them to proliferate through your body.

So instead of getting all worked up about the Swine Flu, relax (remember stress only helps the flu take a foot hold) and take the time to keep yourself healthy.  It only takes a few extra precautions and preventative measures to avoid catching the H1N1 or any other cold and flu that might be spreading itself around in your local environment.

It’s something to think about!

The internet and the national media have exploded with report after report about the H1N1 (Swine Flu) viral infection that is supposedly sweeping through the country this cold and flu season. But there are a lot of misleading facts being thrown around. Is the Swine Flu really the big health scare the media and the government are making it out to be?

There has been a call for the swine flu vaccine to become a mandatory vaccine that we must all take. For me personally this is just one more case of the government overstepping its role and giving in to big money and big business. I have been researching this topic pretty heavily since I heard about the possibility of a mandatory vaccination requirement and I have not found anything that has led me to believe this is a deadly flu virus or that it would require any sort of extra vaccination effort.

In fact, my findings show that the swine flu vaccine might actually be more hazardous to your health than the actual infection from the swine flu virus.  I started out to write a small little blog post but I have been so shocked and amazed by the information I have uncovered that I feel I could write a huge term paper.  Not only does it seem that the Swine Flu is not the death monger it is being made out to be but it seems as though the cure could be the real killer.

Here are a few things I found about the viral infection that has been called the swine flu but is technically labeled the H1N1 Flu virus. (much of this statistical data was taken from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention – CDC)

  • Doctor visits for flu are down from the level of visits in April of 2009
  • The total flu hospitalizations are similar or lower than for a normal seasonal flu
  • The number of deaths secondary to flu and pneumonia is remained unchanged from a normal yearly rate
  • There is no evidence that the virus has mutated at all anywhere in the world
  • There have been 43,771 reported cases in the U.S., with 5,011 requiring hospitalization and 302 deaths. That means the death rate is 0.6 percent, an extremely low death rate for any flu.
  • The percentage of hospitalized patients who died was 6 percent, again a very low incidence of death.
  • Since the CDC estimates that one million people have been infected the actual death rate is in truth 0.03 percent, which means 99.97% of those infected will not die from this flu. Your chances of dying are incredibly low.
  • The Federal Government is saying 150 million Americans will be infected. That is 150 times as many as have now been infected, and represents a much larger figure than would be infected using an estimate based on a 6 to 6.5% infection of a localized population.
  • For the United States with a population slightly over 300 million, the government figures indicate a 50 percent infection rate. There is nothing to indicate such a high infection rate from the past 7 months of analysis. (It has been closer to a 6-7% infection rate)
  • The CDC’s own data indicates that the hospitalization rates and death rates are no higher; in fact they are significantly lower, than the previous two to three flu seasons.
  • The government is using “scare tactics” to promote vaccine use in the United States and that the pharmaceutical makers of vaccines are working in conjunction with these officials.

And now here are a few facts about the H1N1 (Swine Flu) vaccine:

  • These vaccines are experimental, untested, toxic and extremely dangerous to the human immune system.
  • They contain squalene-based adjuvants that can cause a host of annoying to life-threatening autoimmune diseases.
  • What we really have with the swine flu vaccine is an untested, potentially dangerous cocktail of chemicals and viral fragments that could plausibly be linked to a devastating neurological condition.
  • Vaccines don’t always protect against diseases they’re designed to prevent and often cause them.
  • The WHO (World Health Organization) suggested the risks (from the swine flu vaccine) by stating “new technologies are involved in the production of some pandemic vaccines, which have not yet been extensively evaluated for their safety in certain population groups…” As a result, “post-marketing surveillance” and “post-marketing safety and effectiveness studies” are essential so that countries can adjust their vaccination policies
  • Independent studies of squalene used as a vaccine adjuvant indicates that it is associated with a very high incidence of autoimmune diseases, such as an MS-like neurological syndrome, rheumatoid joint disease and especially Lupus.

Here are some things found in a regular flu shot: (taken from an article by Dr. Russell Blaylock)

  • Egg proteins, which could include avian contaminant viruses
  • Gelatin, known to cause allergic reactions and anaphylaxis reactions like those usually associated with sensitivity to egg or gelatin
  • Polysorbate 80 (Tween80™), which can cause severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis
  • Formaldehyde: a known carcinogen
  • Triton X100: a strong detergent
  • Sucrose (table sugar)
  • Resin, known to cause allergic reactions
  • Gentamycin, an antibiotic
  • Thimerosal: mercury is still found in multi-dose vials

The British science magazine, The New Scientist, recently polled 60 virologists to get their opinion about the swine flu virus and what they would be personally doing to avoid the infection. None of the 60 virologists mentioned anything about taking the vaccine. This is interesting because Virologists are scientists who study viruses — their classification, their genetics, methods of spread and their ability to cause disease. No one knows more about this virus than the virologists.

So if the viral spread of this Swine Flu infection doesn’t seem to be any worse than that of any normal “cold and flu” season and the vaccine we have to treat it could cause more potential harm than the viral infection why would any sane person want to mandate its use for the entire population.

Well… (and you probably could have guessed this), Behind the push to vaccinate the entire population are the pharmaceutical makers of the vaccines, who are working in conjunction with the government to make the vaccine mandatory.

Homeland security and FEMA are pushing for forced vaccinations and the medical experts, virologists and epidemiologists are calling for calm and resorting to voluntary vaccination only. The former have links with the vaccine manufacturers via political contacts. A great deal of money will be made by the manufacturers, should forced vaccinations be mandated.

In fact there was a 30 year study done and written up in a peer review journal that showed little or no reduction in hospitalization or death from the use of flu vaccines. This to me is just amazing! It bears repeating; little or no reduction in hospitalization or death from the use of these vaccines. Yet there is also written proof that the vaccines themselves contain viruses that could cause illness and infections within your body.

WHAT!!!! Doesn’t this just make you want to smack somebody? Highly educated people know these vaccines don’t really do much good, but they could do a lot of harm and yet we are still being brainwashed into thinking we need these chemicals to live a better life.

Check out this YouTube Video with Dr. Blaylock (it is part 2 of 4). It has some information that I was shocked to hear.

Vaccines are the bedrock of the pharmaceutical industry’s profit centers. Just think about it, no pharmaceutical company ever made any money off of creating healthy people.

There are alternatives.

First, read, become educated. Don’t just blindly let someone pump chemicals into you without you knowing the possible consequences. You should be able to make up your own mind and suffer or reap the consequences no matter what your choice.

Second, maintain your health. Everyone, from vaccine supporters to vaccine haters doesn’t disagree that healthy people are not affected badly by this or any other flu. The deaths from these viral infections come in the population of people who are in poor health already.

Our bodies are amazing pieces of machinery. They are wondrous things that science has not been able to duplicate. If you give your body the things it needs it will maintain itself and heal itself.

We also have an amazing little army that lives within us called our immune system. It naturally fights off hundreds of harmful viruses every year. The better equipped your little army (your immune system) is the better it can keep you healthy. One of the key components in keeping the immune system working effectively is interferon. By increasing the natural production of interferon you can boost your immune system and maintain a powerful little army.

It has been clinically tested and proven (which is more than the vaccine producers can say) by four published human clinical studies that a combination of immune-strengthening plant extracts can strengthen your immune response by boosting your body’s natural interferon.

Interferon plays a second important role in your body’s defense. It can also boost the immune system’s ability to recognize foreign invaders. It is because of this special role that interferon is used in drug form as an anti-viral agent to treat many different diseases. Researchers have shown that interferon can prevent infection and illness when taken in the right form.

So the choices are yours.

First, you can listen to the hype and fear mongering of the mass media, or do some reading and learn the real truth.

Second, choose the swine flu vaccine or choose to eat right and take supplements to boost your health. Don’t forget to add in the only supplement proven to boost your immune system and strengthen your immune response to viral infections.

I am just a regular guy who has done some research. Don’t take my word for anything anymore than you would other blog sources. I encourage everyone to do their own research and make up their own minds.

It is something to think about!
