How to Kill Viruses

Viruses are nasty. They infect healthy cells and use their hosts to replicate. Influenza (the "flu") kills thousands of people every year.

Having a healthy immune system is key to defeat them!

Read more below about how to naturally protect yourself and others from viruses.

Many foods support our immune system such as onion, garlic and ginger, plus colourful fruits and vegetables. A healthy immune system is our first line of defence against all invading organisms.

Here is a list of generally helpful anti-viral plants. If essential oils of these plants are used it is essential that one select a manufacturer that supplies pure, therapeutic-grade oils, such as Young Living. Want to know more? Just ask.

Plants/oils: Clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus radiata, hyssop, Idaho tansy, manuka (honey), melaleuca, melissa, mountain savory, myrrh, oregano, ravensara and sage.

What to avoid: Refined sugars! Junk food. White flour (white bread, pasta). Alcohol apart from a little red wine. Genetically modified foods (GMO's).


There are natural ways to fight viruses. This one may be the most powerful against the current Ebola virus.

Mannose-binding lectins in the form of cytokines and chemokines were found in much higher concentrations in the blood of those who survived an earlier Ebola outbreak in Africa. These survivors also had better immune function and less inflammation in their bodies.

Mannose-binding lectins help the immune system break down viral cells such as Ebola but other viruses such as HIV, Hepatitis C, HCV, coronaviruses and SARS, plus other organisms such as fungi, bacteria and even parasites. The protective coating of all these organisms (called glycoprotein shells) can be broken down by this specific lectin, destroying them and then affording the body immunity to further attacks.

What plants contain these mannose-binding lectins?  Garlic, leek leaves, onion, shallot, taro*, and especially red algae. All of these are helpful for the immune system, but especially are good at keeping viruses at bay.

Is there a guarantee of immunity if one consumes such foods? No. Especially since this strain of Ebola is much more virulent than any previous strain. Avoiding foods that damage our immune system (see above), getting enough sleep, regular exercise, fresh air and all the other suggestions on this website are extremely important mounting a defense against all illnesses, but especially viruses such as Ebola.

*Note about taro: it must be prepared properly through soaking, cooking, and eaten with a good source of calcium.





Residue of popular herbicide likely encourages illness


A chemical and food company wants us to believe that glysophate, a widely-used herbicide, is not only safe -it might be used to treat cancer!


How profitable, as it may also increase your risk for cancer.


Glysophate is considered to be toxic to animals, including humans. A study by two independent scientists, published in Entropy April 2013, connects the increasingly widespread use of glyphosate with modern diseases because of its "inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, an overlooked component of its toxicity to mammals. CYP enzymes play crucial roles in biology, one of which is to detoxify xenobiotics. Thus, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins."


In other words, it slowly induces disease.


"Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease."


A copy of the whole report can be found under the link GMO's.


Conclusion: only eat organically grown food or foods known not to have been sprayed with Round-up Ready herbicide. Consider also helping your cells to repair from this damage by using Asea.






Ending the Junk Food Obsession

We all know that smoking tobacco is bad for our health. With both public pressure and far higher taxes, smoking is (thankfully) on the decline in Canada.


Now we are facing the crushing health effects of junk food and beverages. These are filled with bad fats, sugar, and salt -plus colorants in soft drinks. The results are alarming: rapidly rising rates of obsity, diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, and far more. Our health care system can't keep up. It turns out that a tobacco company is the largest junk food company! Even the most ardent libertarian (who dislikes government intervention in our lives) may have to concede that doing nothing about this epidemic is harming all of us.


Thus we may have to do the same thing with junk food and drinks as we did with tobacco: apply social pressure as well as add taxes. We know that banning didn't work with alcohol (and isn't working with street drugs). At least taxing these ills will raise money needed to pay for the freedom to eat and drink ourselves into oblivion. For more information read this Globe & Mail article.
