How Could Ice Cream Possibly Stopped Swine Flu - and what remedy can used?

The incidence sounds preposterous, or downright impossible. I am also not trying to promote eating ice cream, candies and junk food either. There was a news story broken out at CNN a couple of days ago that a "Patient Zero" in Mexico no longer has the Swine flu virus and turns out to be a little child. What stopped the swine flu was the ice cream. Now it is quite possible in a certain scenario that the ice cream did stop it. The unlikely reason comes from the vitamin D content found in certain ice cream. It's not likely going to work for most people, but given the right circumstances, a highly metabolic child, high gluten tolerance, with low blood sugar, out in the Mexican sun, with a Swine flu suddenly decided to eat ice cream, then it is likely that vitamin D stopped the Swine flu. Vitamin D is one of the most ignored remedies to lessen the severity of influenza or prevent catching them in the first place. There was a ward in a hospital, of prisoners, mostly Africans-Americans who didn't have the influenza and it was the only ward that simply wasn't infected with the influenza, as writen by J. J. Cannelli, see http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/51913.php .

While it wasn't statistically significant it was still observable. The dose of vitamin D was rather low by my standards, only 5000 i.u. Throughout history, researchers have found a link between seasons, and influenza, where it only happens whenever there is less sun, such as during winters, rainy season, people not exposed to the sun as in the elderly and prisoners, for example. There was also a link between less influenza incidence if you happened to be exposed to UV light and is used to treat or lower influenza. Now my own experience with a influenza doesn't involved finding the dose that lowers the incidence in influenza. It occurs either the person already has it, in the beginning stages, or in a severe stage. If that's is true, what is the dose that can effectively stopped the influenza in the beginning stages, and mind you, vitamin D is a lot cheaper than Tamiflu and Relenza. Luckily I happened to be experimenting with that after catching only in the initial stages of a known careless person with influenza, or unluckily. I experimented with the minimum dose needed to stop that and the dose was close to 80,000 i.u. for a normal 150 pound person. So the dose is calculated by weight based on this figure. Therefore in actual practice, it may be required that a larger dose than the assigned dose I have mentioned here, say by 20% or 30% so that it reaches the near optimum dose. It stopped it within 30-45 minutes upon takin that dose. The vitamin D I used was a cheap form of vitamin D, it's the vitamin D2, and I took about 80,000 i.u. Since each of the vitamin D2 has 20,000 i.u. I had to take four of that. But the method of my consuming the vitamin D2, is to chew these capsule so the vitamin D2 is already on my tongue while it is chewed, to increase the bioavailability. I only took one single dose of 80,000 i.u. and it's gone. However, in practice, it may be needed to take them also for maintenance dose until it is gone where the dose is up to the individual. The ballpark working figure is given here already. This is why at 5000 i.u. did vitamin D didn't produce "statistically significant" event in proving that vitamin D worked. The dose was simply too low to show clear proof that it wasn't a random event. It's the same argument why we can't eat ice cream to cure the influenza. However at a higher dose it produces a clear cut reduction as mentioned here. So if a person happens to believe the Person Zero case in causing the stoppage of Swine flu influenza, there's a good chance it's not the sugar, not the gluten, not the milk, or the cold ice cream. It's likely to be the vitamin D. So anyone who happens to live in dark windy Chicago, having lactose intolerant from drinking milk, is a diabetes, has gluten intolerance, it's likely the ice cream is going to make things worse. Therefore, it provides clue that the Person Zero was greatly helped with the vitamin D above anything else. The dose I found already in the prevention, but I couldn't confirm that sort of prevention with a specific Swine Flu, but the fact that it's reported that the child did improve the condition lends support that vitamin D was helped. The dose I have determined, and the frequency is at least once or twice a day 80,000 i.u. using a cheap vitamin D2. I however, believed that vitamiN D3 is likely to work better, but I simply don't have the vitamin D3 here as it is unaffordable therefore D2 is much cheaper for most people. The dose however, is likely to be the same.

The contraindication for vitamin D from my perspective, is it increases circulating calcium, that tends not to be helpful with muscle aches and pain. To counter this problem a 500 mg of magnesium citrate, or magnesium chloride is taken to balance ouf the calcium and magnesium issue. Alkalization also helps reduce pain by reducing the lactic acid that accompanies influenza and cause body pain. From my own experiences it reduces fever too, in the longer term, but a quicker relief maybe obtain with hydrogen peroxide drops 3% 10 drops, in a warm 1/2 or 1 glass of water with a small amount of baking soda, if possible, such as 1/4 teaspoon.

How could a serving of ice cream possibly have 5000IU vitamin D? I can't speak for mexico, but in the US the amount of vitamin D added to dairy products is much less than that per serving (or even in several servings).

And good update on D2/D3: vitamin D3 is no longer more expensive than D2. And since D3 is more useful, that is good news, and can update your hepful advice.
