The Bird Flu and The Immune System: Don’t Leave Home Without It

Pollsters and advertisers tell us that people will spend a fortune getting well, trying to cure or mitigate some disease or condition but will almost never spend a dime preventing disease. This is important when considering your immune system. Your immune system is your first line of defense against very powerful diseases… in fact, against all diseases. Yet, few care about it until they need it. Translation: They are facing a debilitating disease for the first time and realize something is terribly wrong. Well…what if you face a pandemic? That means you face a debilitating disease that has gone global and is infecting people through direct …and easy…person to person transmission. What about “bird Flu”? Well. What about bird flu…referred to as avian bird flu, Asian bird flu, h5n1 bird flu, among other names? There is a lot of news concerning bird flu these days. Influenza A (H5N1 “bird flu”) is an influenza A virus subtype that occurs mainly in birds. It is highly contagious among birds, and can be deadly to them. Outbreaks of bird flu (H5N1) among poultry are ongoing in a number of countries. While bird flu does not usually infect people, human cases of the bird flu infection associated with these outbreaks have been reported. Most of these cases have occurred from direct or close contact with infected poultry or contaminated surfaces. Distressingly, a few rare cases of human-to-human spread of bird flu (H5N1 also) have occurred, though transmission has not continued beyond one person. Because all influenza viruses have the ability to change, many scientists are concerned that the bird flu virus could mutate and infect humans so as to spread easily from one person to another. The following paragraph is taken from a statement of the CDC: Because these viruses do not commonly infect humans, there is little or no immune protection against them in the human population and an influenza pandemic … could begin. Experts …are watching the H5N1 situation in Asia and Europe very closely and are preparing for the possibility that the virus may begin to spread more easily from person to person. Did you notice the cause for alarm? It says, “Because these viruses do not commonly infect humans, there is little or no immune protection against them.” Since we don’t have prior immunities to H5N1 strains, we are unprotected, allegedly. Often, we don’t have specific antibodies against many diseases…until they contact us. But, then again, that is the reason we have immune systems. Our immune system, if healthy, protects us against viruses – include H5N1 – until it can create antibodies to kill them. The problem associated with bird flu is simple: the people and the poultry that get infected with it have compromised immune systems. If you pursue the issue, you will read that the deadliest disease in history is widely regarded as the Spanish Flu epidemic which killed 40 million people in just months. Scientists now believe that the epidemic was a bird flu pandemic. In other words, the virus came from birds and a virus similar to this one – called the “H5N1” (a form of bird flu virus). Its origins? Most scientists agree that it originated in Asia, as this one. The current bird flu (H5N1) is infecting and spreading throughout the poultry industry in Asia. But, there is an initial – and rather nagging – question. Why do these bird flu strains so often originate in Asia as this one and others, including the Spanish Flu? Answer: Simply put…and here is a key to understanding how to deal with bird flu (H5N1) – poultry farms are absolutely filthy. The stench from such farms, especially those throughout Asia, can be picked up a mile away. Those farms are packed with animals that are weak with compromised, weakened, immune systems. Let these two phrases sink in together: bird flu and weakened immune systems. What about the Spanish Flu? It followed World War I. That War brought death and destruction. But, what about those who survived it? They faced the bird flu. Why? The War brought untold trials in the war torn nations, weakening immune system response in millions. But, why did that bird flu afflict the United States as well? The War brought extreme stress to the soldiers who fought the War, who were now returning from active duty. The bird flu also brought horrible grief to millions who had already experienced loss of loved ones…or, lived with the uncertainties of loss for months. Then there’s the stress of caring for the wounded, crippled, maimed, depressed or otherwise incapacitated. War is so stressful that it brings plague with it. The plague is not just a result of the conditions of war. The stress upon people brought on by war goes far beyond other stresses in life. Certainly, immune system retardation coupled with harsh post-war conditions increases the stress upon life ….opening the door to immune deficiency and, thus, bird flu viruses… The horrible conditions of Asian and European poultry farms and their millions of animals with weakened immune systems is the key to this potential pandemic too. The result is “weakened immune systems and bird flu”. Why aren’t all the birds dying? Because of the rapid spread and highly dangerous nature of the bird flu to birds, millions of flocks have been destroyed throughout the afflicted countries. However, that “remedy” is not working because migratory birds are carrying the bird flu to distant lands, thus spreading its contagion. Interestingly, the migratory birds are not dying from H5N1 like the chickens. Why? Because their immune systems are much stronger, we are told by scientists. Let that one sink in too: bird flu is not killing those birds so readily which have strong immune systems. Hum…bird flu and immune systems…Could be we have something here. But, what if the bird flu (H5N1) makes the jump to human pandemic potential? Is there a solution? Yes. There is one. Glyconutrition. If that sounds too good to be true, then consider this testimony: “In instances of unusual, epidemic, or virulent infectious agent exposure, glyconutrient supplementation has been found effective for enhancing general immune functions and defense. When supplied at higher levels than available in nature, sugars needed for cellular synthesis can take innate defense systems to a MUCH HIGHER LEVEL THAT ARE EFFECTIVE AGAINST INFECTIOUS AGENTS.” – Dr. H. Reginald McDaniel, “Comprehensive Medical Care for Bioterrorism Exposure” Congressional Hearing, November 14, 2001 (emphasis mine) If you want to learn more about glyconutrition and H5N1 defense…see below.
