Ted's Remedies

Posted by Cathleen (Seattle, Washington) on 09/13/2009

Dear Ted: Good morning to you. I would like to thank you for all your generous information and research you are sharing with all of us on earthclinic.com. You have rose to the top of my list of experts in the world of health and nutrition in my last 20+ years of personal research and practice. I have been recommending everyone I know to Earth Clinic. I am in the process of putting together remedies for the 2009 "Swine Flu" viris, particularly your recommendations and I have a few time sensitive issues, as a friend of mine appears to have caught this viris having binges of 104-105 temperatures. She went to the emergency room last evening and they gave her Dilaudid .5-1mg IV push, Phenergan 12.5 mg intravenous, Tylenol 650mg oral and Zofran 4mg MR up to 8mg (nausea) IV push. In addition, they sent her home with Promethazine 25mg every six hours as needed for nausea and Hydrocodone 5mg/500mg tabs 1-2 every four hours for pain. What is your opinion on these medications and should she continue with them?

Unfortunately, she is allergic to aspirin and I have elected to try the Lysine remedy. However, it does not appear you stated (other than the daily schedule) how much Lysine (mg) at what intervals (every hour?) and how often. In addition, it has been hard for me to locate 100% pure Lysine, so I purchased Super Lysine + by Quantum Health (a trusted brand in the US). Serving size is 3 tablets which contain the following: Lysine 1500mg, Vitamin C 100mg, Garlic Bulb 200mg, Echinacea Whole Plant 100mg, Propolis pe*2:1 25mg, Licorice Root 15mg, Goldenseal Root 15mg. Other ingredients: Vegetable stearate, cellulose dicalcium phosphate, cellulose gum, vegetable stearate. Fortunately no magnesium stearate! Would this supplement be suitable for effective and safe treatment? In addition, I purchased sodium ascorbate which I gathered should be used before 1st dose of Lysine at 500mg minus tge 100mg in the Lysine tablets. Unfortunaley, I have not yet found BHT and H202 of which I may have to purchase online.

Right now I need to treat my friend as she is severely ill for over a week at age 45 as a single parent with 5 children. I did find out she typically does the flu vaccines (last one Fall 2008) which probably made her more susceptible. Can you please email me back ASAP as this is a very time sensitive issue at hand.

Thank you very much and enjoy the remainder of your weekend - if you happen to get any time off. Respectfully, Cathleen Seattle, WA

Dear Cathleen: Most plain lysine is fine, but if they are not available, a lysine between 600 mg to 1500 mg is fine, taken at hourly dose. If a person is in a severe condition initially it is taken for 24 hours, on hourly schedule to get the body temperature to normal. The dose may then be on reduced frequency during night time instead of taking hourly is taken at two hourly dose, but at twice the normal dose, say instead of 1000 mg, it becomes 2000 mg every two hour so a person can have a chance to sleep. The dose may also be possible to skip 4 hours but the dose is four times that, but only during the night. A hydrogen peroxide drops also kills these viruses, but they don't stay in the blood very long, so fever should reduce for about 30 minutes to 1 hour, at which it is taken again, preferably every 30 minutes to 1 hour.

As to any other remedies for a person to go over the fever stage, it should be noted that people who are vaccinated are the most susceptible person and the vaccination causes the immune system to be compromised from the live viruses exposure. During the 1918 outbreak of the "Spanish Flu" which is the same H1N1 Swine flu we called today, is the same as bird flu we called this 2 years ago. Now the authorities are changing the name to 2009 viruses, but still the same H1N1. Most of the death came from two major groups, soldiers (mostly male), in their early 20s or late teens, and students mostly elementary studets who die. The reason why this pattern happened was that in 1918, these two groups were vaccinated with the live viruses or dead viruses and it was this vaccination that caused an epidemic. We will likely see this pattern again for those who get vaccinated so the high risk groups will be mostly the children who is in public elementary who gets most of the vaccines. Therefore, vaccination can make it deadly if a person already has a flu or may get them, please see the lawsuit or interview by Camelot project on Jane Burgermeister for details.

The secondary condition from swine flu or bird flu or 2009 viruese is likely to be the lung infection which is likely to eat your lungs from excessive mucus. In my past postings I mentioned the use of Ganmaoling tablets, but I have recently found a good quality digestive enzyme, usually 1000 mg, combination of papain, bromelain, lipase, protease I, protease II, will digest the bugs that is causing the excessive fluids in the lungs, as well as excessive mucus of the sinuses. It's taken about every 2-4 hours of digestive enzyme. A sea salt also reduces runny nose and sneezing almost within the minute. The dose of sea salt (never the common table salt) is only 1/2 teaspoon per day in a cup of water and you are done. The lower bronchitis fluid buildup can be helped mostly with, believe it or not, 1-2 teaspoon of xylitol, every four hour, however I am assuming that a person also takes some baking soda as the simplest of all alkalization remedy, so is taken at 1/2 teaspoon three tims a day one hour or more after eating, in one cup of water. This will neutralize the acidity of xylitol, while it's action will lower the fluidity buildup in the lower lung area.

It should be remembered that once fever is under control, the most damaging aspects of the swine flu is IT EATS UP YOUR LUNG. Therefore the xylitol, digestive enzyme, and sea salt is the most updated remedy I can find.

As far as finding an aspirin substitute, besides the lysine, I will look further to see what other supplements are there that effectively control this. The frequency of dose within an hour or less is seen as the most critical and in a severe one, such as the ICU that I had (intensive care unit), the dose is hourly for 24 hour, but the fever should be under control after the 10th dose. It should be noted that most doctors medication, including the tamiflu doesn't work at this stage, only the aspirin and lysine does so a person with left with either that. BHT prevents it from doing further damages to the brain and other area, but I believe using an ozone generator to help breathing or just spraying a 10% ammonium chloride in 1% magnesium hydroxide (in milk of magnesia) would also dry up the lungs from flooding itself and choking the person with that condition also.


p.s. I hope this information helps, I am currently finding a way to treat the pandemic here, which is mostly Dengue fever, swine flu, and chikungunya right now. Most of the issue of swine flu and dengue is pretty much in control, but I do have some problems in a more effective ways against Chikungunya at the moment, which is the debilitating arthritis that occurs after the infection. So if there's any question, feel free to ask.
