As a child, I used to be upset sitting in my classroom at school in a half empty room when my classmates were laying at home in front of the TV, not having to do the school thing. Why did I have to be so darn healthy while all my friends were sick? It didn’t seem fair that when flu season hit, I didn’t get it. Didn’t I deserve to watch reruns on TV too?
When flu season hit, the school almost looked like a ghost town with easily one third of the students off with the latest bug. The other two-thirds of us would survive the coughing, spewing and sneezing, facing the flying snot of the lunch hour. We even drank out of the school water fountain and survived.
If I slander good ole Abe Lincoln a little- You can infect some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot infect all of the people all of the time.
One of the most horrible plagues was the bubonic plague. Called the Black Death, it killed 30 million people in Europe and 45 million in Asia, that is better than 1 in 4 Europeans in the 14th century, yet. Of course, 3 out of 4 lived, but it was still pretty awful. They didn’t have antibiotics or vaccines back then and most of them lived. In our modern day, we are made to feel that we cannot survive without a vaccine, particularly with H1N1 active in our communities. How did they all survive back in the dark ages?
If you look at smallpox, that horrible viral disease that is all but vanished, those that contacted it when it was raging through populations, survived. The big question is, did smallpox disappear because of our natural immunity or because of the vaccines? It is almost impossible to tell which one won over. Even if the argument was for the vaccine’s efficiency, it is impossible to vaccinate everyone so it seems that immunity wins. There is a large segment of the population that would refuse the vaccine on a number of grounds.
Statistics show that there have been a number of plague cases diagnosed in the southwestern US in recent years, but it didn’t spread even though there were no vaccination programs in place.
This brings us to the H1N1 pandemic that is currently running its course throughout the world. There will never be enough vaccines for everyone so what is a body to do? There are a number of things you can do to prevent the flu aside from frequent hand washing and sneezing into your sleeve.
NutriBiotic makes a Grapefruit Seed Extract 1% nasal spray that is awesome for the first signs of a drippy nose. It is germicidal and natural.
Gargle with 4% (10 volume)hydrogen peroxide, 3 or 4 times per day to kill germs in the throat.
Medical grade essential oils that you can take internally, particularly those that contain phenol like Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg and others, when dripped under the tongue, left for 10 seconds, then swallowed, help to snuff out flu germs and throat infections.
A natural cough syrup called Nin Jiom is really great for coughs and sore throats. It is herbal and works well. You can get it at Choices and most health food stores.
If you really want to nip that flu in the bud, get some food grade hydrogen peroxide, 34% and put 3 drops in a twelve ounce glass of water three times a day. It works really well if you start taking it at the first sign of symptoms. It still works if you get the flu full on, but it just takes a little longer to get rid of it.

Stock your medicine cabinet so you can use these natural products as preventatives, even if Old Swiney comes knocking on your door. You will be ready to help yourself and your family prevent the flu or get over it more quickly without dangerous secondary infections.
