Default Re: Pandemic Flu - Prevention and Treatment

This is interesting, it came from a group I am part of on Facebook, the link is at the bottom of the page.... regardless of where the info comes from, if this gets any worse then anything is helpfull.....

To prevent the flu Lavender oil is an essential oil obtained by distillation from the flower spikes of certain species of lavender. Two forms are distinguished, lavender flower oil, a colorless oil, insoluble in water, having a density of 0.885 g/mL; and lavender spike oil, a distillate from the herb Lavandula latifolia, having density 0.905 g/mL. Lavender flower oil is a designation of the National Formulary and the British Pharmacopoeia. Like all essential oils, it is not a pure compound; it is a complex mixture of naturally occurring phytochemicals, including linalool and linalyl acetate.

The Great Plague of London, 16651666, was the last major outbreak of the bubonic plague in Europe. The plague resurfaced in the mid-18th century; like the Black Death, the Third Pandemic began in Central Asia. It spread worldwide, killing millions, into the early 20th century.Homeopathic medicines had great success in treating people suffering from infectious disease epidemics.[162] During 19th century epidemics of diseases such as cholera, death rates in homeopathic hospitals were often lower than in conventional hospitals, where the treatments used at the time were often harmful and did little or nothing to combat the diseases.[163]

A popular homoeopathic treatment for the flu is a 200C dilution of duck liver, marketed under the name Oscillococcinum


The 1918 Flu Pandemic (From: J. Winston. 1999. The Faces of Homoeopathy. Great Auk Publishing. Wellington: New Zealand.)
It is hard to imagine the devastation caused by the flu epidemic of 1918-19. People who lived through it reported that someone who was up and well in the morning could be dead by evening.
It was about as deadly as the Black Death. Twenty million people died world-wide. Twelve and a half (12.5) million died in India alone - four percent of the population. In the United States, 548,000 people died in the epidemic.
The following is an extract from an article entitled "Homoeopathy in Influenza- A Chorus Of Fifty In Harmony" by W. A. Dewey, MD from the Journal of the American Institute Of Homoeopathy in 1921.
* Dean W. A. Pearson of Philadelphia collected 26,795 cases of influenza treated by homoeopathic physicians with a mortality of 1.05%, while the average old school mortality was 30%.
* Thirty physicians in Connecticut responded to my request for data. They reported 6,602 cases with 55 deaths, which is less than 1%. In the transport service I ha 81 cases on the way over. All recovered and were landed. Every man received homoeopathic treatment. One ship lost 31 on the way. - H. A Roberts, MD, Derby, Connecticut
* In a plant of almost 8,000 workers we had only one death. The patients were not drugged to death. Gelsemium was practically the only remedy used. We used no aspirin and no vaccines. - Frank Wieland, MD, Chicago
* I did not lose a single case of influenza ; my death rate in the pneumonia was 2.1%. The salicylates, including aspirin and quinine, were almost the sole standbys of the old school and it was a common thing to hear them speaking of losing 60% of their pneumonias. - Dudley A. Williams, MD, Providence, Rhode Island
* Fifteen hundred cases were reported at the Homoeopathic Medical Society of the District of Combia with but fifteen deaths. Recoveries in the National Homoeopathic Hospital were 100% - E. F. Sappington, MD, Philadelphia.
* I have treated 1,000 cases of influenza. I have the records to show my work. I have no losses. Please give all credit to homoeopathy and none to the Scotch-Irish-American! T. A. McCaan, MD, Dayton, Ohio.
* One physician in a Pittsburg hospital asked a nurse if she knew anything better than what he was doing, because he was losing many cases. "Yes, Doctor, stop aspirin and go down to a homoeopathic pharmacy, and get homoeopathic remedies." The Doctor replied: "But that is homoeopathy." "I know it, but the homoeopathic doctors for whom I have nursed have not lost a single case."
Julian Winston relates a further comment from his first homoeopath, Dr Ray Seidel:

"In reading accounts of the epidemic it seems many deaths were caused by a virulent pneumonia that was especially devastating to those who depressed their system with analgesics, the most common being aspirin. Raymond Seidel told me he decided to become a homoeopathic doctor when he was 10 year old delivery boy for a local homoeopath. He said, "I saw that the people who were taking aspirin were dying, and about half of those who were drinking a lot of whiskey were dying, and those receiving homoeopathic remedies were living."

Taken from here which is in itself a very interesting read with regards to what is happening now... remember only take what resonates with you...
