EoR was grateful, however, for the timely advice on how to "Prepare for Avian Flu!".
[Avian flu] kills more than half its victims by rapidly depleting ascorbate (vitamin C) stores in the body, inducing scurvy and collapse of the arterial blood supply. [...] Most people today have barely enough Vitamin C in their bodies (typically 60mg per day) to prevent scurvy under normal living conditions, and are not prepared for this kind of illness. (Vitamin C deficiency is the root cause of many infant and childhood deaths worldwide, and is the root cause of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome - SIDS.) The way to prepare yourself and protect your family from this influenza is not a vaccine or anti-viral drug. These actually reduce your immunity; vaccines contain many toxic components, such as aluminium, mercury and solvents and anti-viral drugs interfere with critical body processes. Historical evidence of vaccinations has shown that they actually increase the chances of becoming severely ill. Influenza vaccines in particular are notoriously ineffective and have harmed thousands of people, and there is evidence already that Tamiflu, now being stockpiled for a possible epidemic, is useless against Avian Influenza. The best way to prepare for influenza is by enhancing your immune system and increasing the amount of vitamin C in your body.
The evidence of how dangerous and ineffective vaccinations are can be seen in the worrying rise in measles cases as people avoid the deadly autism-causing jabs of fear, in order to risk their children's health with a very real disease.
In order to combat the avian flu, you are advised to: take 2000-4000mg of ascorbic acid with every meal until the point where "your body complains by giving you mild diarrhea"; take 6000mg of lysine per day; take a high potency multivitamin/multimineral tab; take a calcium/magnsium supplement; drink at least 2 liters of fluid per day (you'll need it to wash out all those excess vitamins and minerals!); stock up on l-proline and l-glycine, turmeric extract capsules, ginger capsules, garlic capsules, zinc and copper capsules, green tea extract and non-gmo drink concentrate. Remember: it's the alternative brigade that accuse doctors of just pushing more and more pills! Oh, and before you get sick, seek out a chelation or alternative health clinic to administer intravenous vitamin C.
Unfortunately, even with this best of advice based on the soundest scientific understanding of the human body, you could just possibly still fall ill. If this very unlikely event, increase your vitamin C dosage up to 200,000mg per day. Plus massive doses of l-lysine, l-proline, l-glycine, oregano, turmeric extract etc etc. Keep doing this until the illness passes (which rather guarantees that it will work).
If that doesn't work, immediately make your way to your nearest public health centre - sorry, chelation clinic - and get those intravenous doses.
Also, if you are currently on a statin drug: stop taking it. Vitamin C and lysine will naturally balance your cholesterol and protect you from heart disease (presumably, doctors already know this but Big Pharma force them to sell those nasty drugs).
There is a warning, however:
You must take the regimen above every day, consistently.
In fact, keep taking 6000mg each of vitamin C and lysine after you're better.
Use your stocks of antiviral nutrients for any illness you may encounter.
Given that most American adults (EoR imagines the results would be similar in other western countries) already consume more than an adequate intake of vitamin C, and that the best source of vitamin C is a healthy diet, he wonders about the purpose for all these expensive pills that do nothing and just waste the consumers' money (damn! that's the accusation the alternatistas keep levelling at doctors - surely there's no touch of hypocrisy here?). The Recommended Dietary Allowance is 90mg for men and an absolute maximum of 2000mg for men. After that level the consumer is risking adverse effects (damn! that's the accusation that alternatistas keep levelling about pharmaceuticals - they're all poisons!). Even a complementary medicine site like the BBC's page on vitamins warns against taking more than 1000mg a day.
The article is by Jonathan Campbell, described as a "health consultant" which seems to be one of those made up titles. Apparently, he has a "public service" website on health. EoR couldn't be bothered looking for it. He's too busy stuffing himself with vitamins and minerals faster than the alternative health shop can supply them, and wondering why, if Vitamin C is so effective, wouldn't it be more powerful in homoepathic quantities?
