Flu History and Prevention

Flu Season is here! Well, it has been here for several weeks now, but are you still unprepared for the winter?

Influenza (the flu) was once a killer disease. People would die long ago from a simple flu virus. Over the years, flu bacteria would grow or change and vary in strength and size of impact due to the people or animals infected and overall impact on the flu bacteria’s growth and structure. Many people might say this is an evolutionary break through… but never has the flu virus turned into, say, the chicken pox, small pox, or cancer, or even a common headache! The flu has always been the flu. Each year there might be a little change in the “strand” of the bacteria, which causes the strength to vary, but it never turns into a different disease.

Through out the centuries there have been major pandemics/epidemics of strands of the flu virus that got “stronger” since the year or two before.

Some of the most “famous” flu epidemics include the following…

In 1878, the “fowl plague” caused major disease in both birds/poultry and people.
In 1918, more people died of flu virus than those who died in World War 1 or in the four years of the Black Death/Black Plague during the Middle Ages in Europe. This flu strand has since been labeled “Spanish Flu” and killed roughly (estimated) 20 million to 100 million people world-wide. It was caused by an H1N1 virus that “got stronger.” (Reminder: This flu virus happened before modern mainstream medicine created antibiotics and before natural medicine and homeopathic medicine was matured.)
In 1924, the first “bird flu” spread among birds, not humans.
In 1957-1958, the “Asian Flu” was caused by an H2N2 virus that spread from China, killing 1 million people world-wide.
In 1968-1969, the “Hong Kong Flu” was caused by an H3N2 virus. The death toll was alot less than the “Asian Flu” even though 34,000 Americans passed away from it.
In 1976, “Swine Flu” breaks out from an H1N1 virus, circulating mainly in pigs, and killing 1 person. At first it seemed that the H1N1 strand was the “Spanish Flu” and that caused some panic to bring on the vaccinations. The problem is that the vaccinations killed 25 people because of “a rare paralytic complication.”
In 1983, an H5N2 flu virus kills spreads in chickens, turkeys and guinea fowl that were in Virginia and Pennsylvania. In order to stop the spreading, and possible human infection by eating the animals, the government had 17 million birds killed.
In 1996-1997, several bird flu cases from the H1N1 flu strand were found in Hong Kong and spreading in the chickens and ducks of the area. Governmental officials destroyed 1.7 million chickens and ducks.
In 2003, H5N1 flu strands spread in places like Thailand and Vietnam causing several deaths of humans and millions of common birds to die or be destroyed.
Between 2003 and 2006, Bird Flu cases have come out in Asia and Europe.

In recent years in America there was a “Swine Flu” scare throughout the country. Officials stated that many people (i.e. 5 to 10 elderly or younger people) died and the government encouraged people to get “life saving flu vaccinations.”

My sister and I both got this “swine flu” and never got any vaccinations and, of course, we are still alive. I can not recommend the vaccinations during this flu season because of all the bad side effect I’ve heard that they come with (but that is for a later post.) But I will recommend God’s medicine that I used. Namely Vitamin C, Echinacea, Licorice Root, Vitamin A, and a little Zinc. Eat Vitamin C rich foods 24/7 if you are sick already or getting sick. Eat things like fresh apples, oranges, raw carrots, salads, homemade non-MSG soups, and “caffeine free” herbal teas that do not  corn starch or modified ingredients in them.

Also, it is a good idea to start a 4 to 7 day long detoxification diet during the season changes to help your body prevent flu even more. I also encourage you look into homeopathic medicines too. My family has used Oscillococcinum (aka Oscillo by Boiron, find it here: http://www.ritecare.com/homeopathic/guide_oscillococcinum.asp) and it works really well in prevention and it tastes a little sweet so all ages should love it.

I discourage you from using cough drops while you are sick because most of the common cough drops have some form of sugar in them. Just read the ingredient lists. Of all times, the change from autumn to winter to spring is when you should not increase sugar intake as much as possible. Sugar is the last thing kids need for their immune systems… (to be continued)
