Is L-lysine a Good Preventative for the Swine Flu?

Posted by Katt (Iowa) on 04/30/2009

Hi Ted

Would it be wise to start taking Lysine as a preventive to the swine flue? If so how much? Also can my daughter who is pregnant take the lysine, & H202?

Please advise quickly.

Thanks- Katt from Iowa

Dear Katt:

A lysine is taken 600 mg taken twice or three times a day as a preventive. 30 drops of 3% H2O2 is added in one liter water to be used as a drinking water. However, one additional supplements that may help Swine Flu influenza in any stage, based on news of a child eating ice cream is the vitamin D.

This is because, one of the most interesting aspect about the zero person who got Swine flu was greatly helped after eating ice cream, is very likely to be the vitamin D content in the ice cream. Statistically it can be ignored as a fluke, but under certain unique circumstances, a vitamin D is likely to be one of the best remedies and preventive to the present Swine Flu.

A Dr. John Cannelli mentions his experiences that there was one hospital ward where none of his patients caught influenza, while the ward to the left and the right had influenza. The dose he used was 5,000 i.u. of vitamin D. While the study produced "statistically insignificant" numbers, it implies that the dose should have been larger to make it more statistically significant, and perhaps much larger number of patients. It's therefore likely to be twice or triple that dose to produce a statistically significant results. That said, it's between 10,000 i.u. to 15,000 i.u.

My own method I used about 20,000 i.u. of vitamin D2. The reason why I mentioned the use of vitamin D is the mentioned in the media that the first person to get Swine flu was a child and was greatly helped with ice cream. However this is more like a statistcal fluke where certain unique things of the child made him better. Such as low blood sugar, high metabolic rate, high gluten tolerance, no lactose intolerance, and perhaps the mother allowed the child to run around in the sun. Therefore a vitamin D dose of 5000 i.u. may produced a statistically insignificant, but noticeable results and we can instead use cod liver oil in case vitamin D can't be found also, which also has vitamin D. As for me the standard vitamin D2 I take is about 20,000 i.u. per day during the standard influenza outbreak.

In event of a pregnancy for example, lysine is considered to be an amino acid or a food supplements. The best way to take them with little risk is simply to follow instructions as per advise by the bottle of lysine supplements. As to the H2O2, it maybe used as a mouthwash, to kill whatever viruses in the mouth or used as a disinfectant. The concentration of H2O2 depends on the user as everyone has different sensitivity. I like 1% and usually is problem free, but some other people may be less or more sensitive, and the 1% is the middle value.
