THE PLAGUE THAT WASN'T

NHNE EDITOR'S COMMENT:

It's time once again for the latest flu epidemic -- or "pandemic" this time around -- to start scaring the stuffing out of us. How can we protect ourselves and our loved ones from the newest strain of deadly flu? And what can we do if we, or our loved ones, are unfortunate enough to contract it?

Let me begin by saying that I know now, from my eldest daughter's encounter with a viral infection in Costa Rica
//www.sunfellow.com/jeremia/, that viral infections can be serious business. They can rain hell down on your body, mind, emotions, loved ones, future plans. They can also maim and kill -- and do every day.

But most of the time, they don't do anything -- especially if our immune systems are strong.

One of these days, I plan to give you a blow-by-blow account of what I went through and learned from my daughter's battle. But for now, I'm just going to offer three bits of advice:

1. Don't trust any doctor, nurse, or mainstream "expert" who acts like they know everything and discounts alternative approaches to healing. I actually had one highly-placed doctor laugh in my face when I asked about Vitamin C fighting viral infections (see below for links to the effectiveness of Vitamin C when it comes to treating all kinds of ailments, including viral infections and cancer). Also keep in mind that mainstream medicine has been grievously wrong about just about everything. Moreover, it has been dragged, kicking and screaming, into adopting a growing number of holistic ideas and practices (ponder, for example, the current battle to introduce healthy food into hospital menus; the effort to evict McDonald's and Burger King from hospital corridors; the embarrassing physical condition of many doctors and nurses who advise others on how to attain health; and the ugly, money-grubbing ways that drug companies have funded dubious research, extracted exorbitant prices, and attempted to crush generic drugs and herbal alternatives).

2. Don't trust any alternative healer, practitioner, or know-it-all holistic health author who acts like they know everything and discounts conventional approaches to healing. While I have a long list of grievances with the way mainstream doctors, nurses, hospitals, insurance companies, government agencies, and other status-quo institutions practice medicine, most of the folks practicing convention medicine that I met are deeply committed to helping people. And they've got some tools, especially diagnostic tools, that can be very helpful. Indeed, when it comes to diagnosis, I think blood work, x-rays, and CAT scans are far more reliable than the diagnostic skills of your average aura reader or psychic healer.

3. And finally, and most importantly, don't allow anyone to decide what you should do with your life, or the life of those you are responsible for. When all is said and done -- when the doctors, healers, practitioners, authors, experts, and philosophers have offered their counsel, provided their treatments, and gone home (or moved on to the next theory about what causes and cures your particular ailment) -- it is you and your loved ones who are left to deal with the ramifications of whatever you chose to do -- or not do. Be sure YOU made the best, most informed decisions you could.

And with that, here's some of the best information I've come across concerning the flu (Asian and otherwise), Vitamin C, vaccinations, and related topics. May you make the choice(s) that work best for you and yours...
