The Flu will be upon us shortly.
In it's honor, I decided to go "Viral" ;)
I wanted to share a few observations from my recent readings aimed at protecting our families.
* Flu viruses are suppressed and deactivated with certain Essential Oils.
* It is quite literally "raining viruses".
* Sunlight & Vitamin D3 quantity play a key role in immune support as we head into flu season.
* Air Humidity seems to play a key role in making these viruses more scarce.
* Influenza viruses are constantly mutating causing mismatches in vaccines.
* A University is creating “Hotel Influenza” to test vaccines on guests for money.
*The 1918-1919 Flu Pandemic killed upwards of 50 Million people worldwide
* “Viruses modulate the function and evolution of all living things”
* Flu Vaccine Ingredients:
Chicken egg proteins
*** So use your essential oil blends like On Guard and keep those cold air diffusers pumping to increase air humidity as we enter fall and winter ***
What is in a Flu Vaccine?
Yes, I was curious too. This is what I found:
1. Influenza viruses “The presence of these viruses in the vaccine triggers the body's natural defense mechanism to produce antibodies to fight them."
2. Formaldehyde “inactivate toxins from viruses and bacteria that may contaminate the vaccine during production, as well as the viruses naturally present in the vaccine”
3. Aluminum Salts “Adjuvant”
4. Thimerosal “Preservative containing Mercury”
5. Chicken egg proteins “To grow viruses”
6. Gelatin “Stabilizer”
7. Antibiotics “To prevent bacterial growth”
It seems Mercury may have been removed from childhood vaccines since 1999. I’m wondering about pregnant women and the rest of us?
What Essential Oils are Good for Flu?
Research has found that the following essential oils have significant anti-influenza virus properties:
Bergamot oil is effective against flu viruses as a vapor after just 10 minutes of exposure.
Eucalyptus oil shows anti-viral activity as a vapor.
Red thyme oil is effective against flu viruses as a liquid phase.
Cinnamon leaf oil also shows antiviral activity as a liquid.
Tea tree oil is effective against the flu virus within 5 to 10 minutes of exposure, as found in another study.
Melissa Officinalis is also shown to prevent the avian influenza (bird flu) virus from reproducing.
“Researchers have found that a commercial blend of essential oils significantly reduced the influenza virus' ability to spread” (DoTerra On Guard)
Flu and Humidity
"Flu epidemics almost always followed a drop in air humidity"
"Thanks to the laws of thermodynamics, cold air can carry less water vapour before it reaches the 'dew point' and falls as rain. So while the weather outside may seem wetter, the air itself is drier as it loses the moisture." Regarding winter air...
"In moist air, these particles may remain relatively large, and drop to the floor. But in dry air, they break up into smaller pieces – eventually becoming so small that they can stay aloft for hours or days. (It’s a bit like the mist you get when you turn a hose pipe to its finest spray.) The result is that in winter, you are breathing a cocktail of dead cells, mucus and viruses from anyone and everyone who has visited the room recently."
”Scientists have surmised there is a stream of viruses circling the planet, above the planet’s weather systems but below the level of airline travel. Each day, they calculated, some 800 million viruses cascade onto every square meter of the planet."
"Viruses are the most abundant entities on the planet by far"
“Viruses modulate the function and evolution of all living things,”
It's quite conceivable to have a virus swept up into the atmosphere on one continent and deposited on another."
"Bacteria and viruses are swept up in the atmosphere in small particles from soil-dust and sea spray."
"The deposition rates for viruses were nine to 461 times greater than the rates for bacteria."
Popular theories about why the flu strikes in winter
1) During the winter, people spend more time indoors with the windows sealed, so they are more likely to breathe the same air as someone who has the flu and thus contract the virus
2) Days are shorter during the winter, and lack of sunlight leads to low levels of vitamin D and melatonin, both of which require sunlight for their generation. This compromises our immune systems, which in turn decreases ability to fight the virus.
3) The influenza virus may survive better in colder, drier climates, and therefore be able to infect more people.
