Ten Tips To Boost Immunity Naturally - Health Supreme NewsGrabs 4 December 2011

10 Natural Tips To Boost Immunity This Winter

Flu season is headed our way and in a few weeks many will suffer, but you don't have to be one of them if you start boosting immunity now. Here are 10 simple ways to prep your body so it's strong enough to repel viral invaders all winter long.

Best wishes for a flu-free winter!

Vitamin_D.jpg

1) Adequate levels of Vitamin D are essential for our immune systems to function the way it is designed to. Unfortunately, there are no significant dietary sources of Vitamin D -- most of our intake comes from exposure to sunlight. To optimize your Vitamin D levels, you'll need to take a Vitamin D3 supplement daily. This is the most important step you can take to prevent the flu!

2) A strong immune system relies heavily on having a healthy, well-functioning gut -- and probiotics help keep your gut engine humming...

A reader and friend on facebook added an 11th tip, which we might consider, in addition to the ten in the Huffington Post article: Vitamin C - The Healing Factor and she added: "A good boost of vitamin C will also help. Humans do not make their own vitamin C, unlike most other animals, so we have to make sure it is part of our diet. We may no longer suffer from scurvy but there is evidence of health problems related to subclinical scurvy."


Is there an important advantage in actually getting the flu?

The paper suggests that people with preexisting antibodies to different H1N1 strains had more immunity to swine flu H1N1 than those without. Getting a flu infection (whether or not you actually get sick... since the majority of people with influenza infections show few if any symptoms) leaves you with long-lived antibodies, and many more of them, than someone has who got vaccine. And they protect against similar strains, which flu vaccine usually fails to do.

This might explain the data from Canada and Hong Kong (that I have blogged about several times) which showed that receiving flu vaccine in 2008 led to almost double the likelihood of getting sick from swine flu in 2009. In other words, the unvaccinated from the previous flu season fended off swine flu much better than the previous season's vaccinated people did.


Insane Science: Man-made flu virus with potential to wipe out many millions is created in research lab

A group of scientists is pushing to publish research about how they created a man-made flu virus that could potentially wipe out civilisation.

The deadly virus is a genetically tweaked version of the H5N1 bird flu strain, but is far more infectious and could pass easily between millions of people at a time.

The research has caused a storm of controversy and divided scientists, with some saying it should never have been carried out.

The current strain of H5N1 has only killed 500 people and is not contagious enough to cause a global pandemic.

But their are fears the modified virus is so dangerous it could be used for bio-warfare, if it falls into the wrong hands.


Australian journalist wins prestigious award for exposing flu vaccine scandal

Natasha Bita, a journalist for The Australian has just won a Walkley Award (the Australian equivalent of a Pulitzer Prize) for an in-depth article series on the CSL Afluria flu vaccine, a shot that caused convulsions in one percent of Australian infants who received it.

To put this vaccine scandal in perspective, the CDC states that ‘seizures can occur after vaccination,’ 33% of infants who have a first seizure will have more seizures and 10% of infants who have one seizure can develop epilepsy. According to the Merck Manual (the largest-selling medical textbook), seizures are a symptom of encephalitis, which the Merck Manual defines as a vaccine adverse reaction. Vaccine-induced encephalitis can leave a spectrum of permanent brain damage in its wake – post-encephalitic syndrome (aka epilepsy and autism). In other words, kids that have convulsions from Afluria can have lifelong neurological disabilities.

Incredibly, the defective CSL flu vaccine Afluria is still on the market in the US: FDA-approved and CDC-recommended.


Micronutrient Profiles in HIV-1-Infected Heterosexual Adults

It is interesting to see how important micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) are in Aids patients, especially magnesium ...

"There is compelling evidence that micronutrients can profoundly affect immunity. We surveyed vitamin supplement use and circulating concentrations of 22 nutrients and glutathione in 64 HIV-1 seropositive men and women and 33 seronegative controls participating in a study of heterosexual HIV-1 transmission. We assayed antioxidants (vitamins A, C, and E; total carotenes), vitamins B6 and B12, folate, thiamin, niacin, biotin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, free and total choline and carnitine, biopterin, inositol, copper, zinc, selenium, and magnesium. HIV-infected patients had lower mean circulating concentrations of magnesium, total carotenes, total choline, and glutathione, and higher concentrations of niacin than controls. Fifty-nine percent of HIV + patients had low concentrations of magnesium, compared with 9% of controls."


So What Does it Mean that Studies Reveal that Moderate Drinkers Are Healthier than Teetotalers ?

We all know that drinking too much can be bad for us; but did you know that drinking too little could be hazardous?

I don't want to go to rehab, but a raft of recent studies show that moderate alcohol consumption lowers our risks for many dire conditions including heart disease, stroke, gallstones, diabetes and dementia. Some studies even suggest that the answer to pesky menopause symptoms comes in six-packs and goes great with pretzels.

The keyword here is "moderate." Some studies define this as one drink per week; others as up to four drinks per day. This haziness notwithstanding, these studies show that heavy drinkers are far more likely than moderate drinkers to die from certain diseases.

But so are people who don't drink at all.

It's a bell curve. But while one half of the bell is well, duh, the other half -- the half involving abstinence -- is pretty shocking. In study after study, abstainers get sick and die sooner and in larger numbers than moderate drinkers.


Book: "While Science Sleeps" by Woodrowe C. Monte

Something very wrong is going on, something that is killing good people and causing untold suffering to families and communities around the world. Never has such a high percentage of us been afflicted with so many tragic and wasting illnesses. In the past thirty years, a group of diseases has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and many other countries. These afflictions, often collectively referred to as diseases of civilization (DOC), include multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, melanoma, and autism, a once rare birth defect.

while-science-sleeps.jpg

These are the worst of times, as mankind endures a plague whose point of origin distinctly coincides with the Food and Drug Administration’s 1981 approval of aspartame—an artificial sweetener containing methanol, which is metabolized into deadly formaldehyde within the brain and sinew of all who consume it. I am a food scientist who warned thirty years ago in the scientific literature of the hazards we court by adding large amounts of methanol to our food supply. I am a professor who taught my students of these dangers. I am an activist who took the FDA to the Supreme Court in an effort to compel it to carry out its mandate and obligation to protect the public. I am still waging this battle and will continue to fight until the salient and suppressed facts have been revealed...


New Zealand: Food As Commodity, Not Nourishment

With the implementation of Food Bill 160-2, massive new powers, including powers of arrest, will be given to “food safety officers”, who can be members of the private sector. That means employees of Monsanto could be authorized to conduct raids. Worse, they will be given immunity from criminal and civil prosecution for any acts during those raids. Even marae, communal and sacred places, will be subject to their actions. Warrants will not be required so there will be no need for evidence of a crime, meaning anyone could be raided at any time…and there will be no recourse, no matter how egregious their acts.

The purpose of the bill—as stated by New Zealand Food Safety Authority—is to bring New Zealand into line with Codex Alimentarius provisions.


Codex still believes saturated fats cause heart attacks

Adhering to the outdated views first espoused by the makers of Crisco in 1911, when they wanted to shove butter and lard off grocery-store shelves in favor of their new-fangled invention, Crisco (a shortened name form for “Crystallized Cottonseed Oil”), most Codex delegates still think that saturated fats are the cause of heart attacks. That is why the Committee wanted to establish an Nutrient Reference Vaue of no more than 10 percent of daily energy intake for this fat and push consumers towards a higher intake of the “safe” polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Such nonsense is often what passes for “science” at Codex these days, with no correlation to current research that anyone could pull off of Pub-Med within two minutes. The delegation of Malaysia, though, cannot be tarred with this tattered brush. Malaysia clearly and unequivocally stated its views that saturated fats had a role in the diet and were not correlated with the risk of coronary heart disease. The International Dairy Federation supported this view and provided its own defense of saturated fats in a healthy diet.


Australian Medical Association urges watch on vaccines

DOCTORS demanded more monitoring of vaccine side-effects yesterday after the federal government announced penalties for families who fail to immunise their children.

Australian Medical Association president Steve Hambleton said the government must introduce "active surveillance" to monitor side effects instead of relying on doctors and patients to report problems through "passive surveillance".


USA: More Parents Are Opting Out of Vaccines

A study of exemption rates by the Associated Press finds that more and more parents are skipping required vaccines for their children, often out of fear that shots do more harm than good. More than half of all states have seen an increase in the number of exemptions and in eight states, mostly in the Northwest and Midwest, the percentage of kids not getting the full recommendation of shots is over 5 percent.

Doctors cite many reasons for the rise in requested exemptions, one of which is that it is simply easier than it used to be to opt out. In many places, parents who wish to enroll their kids in kindergarten without the required shots simply need to check a box on a form (which can be easier than taking their kids to the doctor.) Other cite religious reasons or the sheer volume of shots, which has increased with the development of new vaccines, like the one for chickenpox.

One of the biggest concerns remains the fear that vaccines cause autism or other development disorders...


Tongue-in-cheek: Bold and Innovative Ideas for Increasing Vaccine Uptake

This is in email consultation with doctors, medical scientists, advocates, media persons, public health activists, human rights activists, victims of vaccines and parents of vaccine damaged children, both in India and abroad

Our bold & innovative ideas for increasing vaccine uptake are;

1. Conducting independent and unbiased vaccine safety research, both short term and long term, and also research on safety about the combined effect of various vaccines given to the children.

2. Compare the health of vaccinated vs non vaccinated children.

3. Identify all cases of vaccine induced deaths and damage.

4. Compensate parents of those children who died...


The Real Causes of Shaken Baby Syndrome That Mainstream Media Fail To Tell

A recent article in a UK newspaper suggested that about half of parents convicted of shaken baby syndrome (SBS) have been wrongly accused. However, a thorough investigation of all the scientific evidence shows that the real percentage of wrongly convicted people could be much higher than this.

What is extremely disturbing from the evidence is that these injuries can be caused by a combination of multiple vaccinations and other conditions that rapidly absorb the baby’s store of vitamin C, or to give it its correct name ascorbic acid, to the point of creating infantile scurvy.

Although you may be aware of the disease called scurvy, you may think it was something that only sailors suffered on their long sea voyages in the 18th century and that it was cured when they had adequate fresh food, specifically including limes or lemons.

However, the story is more complex and is still relevant today, for a lack of ascorbic acid can result in a variety of symptoms that are mistakenly attributed to other causes and, even more worryingly, sub-clinical scurvy is far more prevalent than is generally acknowledged by the mainstream medical establishment.

t's a drug that holds the promise of doing what no other vaccine has done before: preventing cancer. But some say it also poses great risk. A group of girls recently shared their experiences after receiving the Gardasil vaccine.

Watch them spin the side effects as absolutely laughable...


Aluminum Adjuvant in Vaccines: A Smoking Gun Autism Link?

A new study shows a likely causal relationship between the vaccination adjuvant, aluminum, and autism.

The study’s focus is on the adjuvant aluminum. It’s a known neurotoxin that’s commonly used in vaccines. Of the 32 currently recommended vaccines for preschool children in the US, 18 contain aluminum. The number of vaccinations increased from 10 to 32 between the late ’70s and 2008. During this time, the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in children increased an astonishing 2000 percent. Yet, no serious study of a possible connection between childhood vaccines with adjuvant aluminum and ASD had been done … until now.


The Mainstream Again Admits – HIV Does Not Exist as a Unique Particle

Have a stroll through this mainstream review of all things retroviral nonsense. This paper provides a basis of understanding the AIDS mess deeply from their point of view (the point of view of bad science in many labs reaching consensus agreement).
So, please read along. Take your time. Take some dramamine, if needed, or ginger tea. Many of the leaps of logic will induce vertigo…

Understanding AIDS theory goes like this:
A. It is a sexually transmitted particle – Yes or No.
B. It or They Kill T-Cells – Yes or No.
C. It is a Distinct particle with a distinct shape, size, (morphology) and physical characteristic – Yes or No.


Book: Serious Adverse Events: An Uncensored History of AIDS

Controversial AIDS reporter Celia Farber collects twenty years of investigative work on AIDS.

Building on her much discussed cover story in Harper’s Magazine—“Out of Control: AIDS and the Corruption of Medical Science”—Celia Farber’s Serious Adverse Events: An Uncensored History of AIDS asks important questions about the costs and results of the two-decade long “war on AIDS.”

Here Farber conducts new interviews with controversial AIDS dissidents, including UC Berkeley’s Peter Duesberg, UNAM’s Harvey Bialy, and Nobelist Kary Mullis. Their views on HIV and cancer—rarely discussed in the mainstream press—are considered at length.


Retroviral Talk: Is HIV Just in Lesions?

International Aids Day Special - Listening to medical propaganda, one would think a retrovirus is a very bad thing - something to be killed immediately wherever it is found. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Just like cholesterol has been condemned as "bad" and this lie has given rise to a billion-dollar industry of useless and even damaging cholesterol lowering (statin) drugs, so have retrovira been condemned, giving rise to a billion-dollar industry of Aids research and pharmaceutical intervention, to cocktails of "anti-retroviral" drugs they tell us are a must for anyone reacting to that very unspecific test that shows up stressed proteins associated with HIV. The retrovirus being targeted, HIV, incidentally has never been shown to do anything that could be construed as destroying the human immune system. As a matter of fact, it seems to be a necessary component of healing wounds and lesions, as Cal Crilly has discovered.

Cal is one of the few people who are able and willing to look at these details. His latest brainchild is a question: "Is HIV to be found just in lesions?"


ONE DRUG TO MAKE YOU HAPPY

Psychiatric drugs are big sellers. They are among the best selling drugs made. In 2010, Americans or their insurers doled out some $16.1 billion for anti-psychotics; $11.6 billion for anti-depressants; and $7.2 billion for ADHD treatments.

Within the last two decades the field of psychiatry has mushroomed from a fringe body of Sigmund Freud admirers to a mainstream player in the field of medical pharmacology, largely because of an unseemly union between that profession and the drug industry, leading to the creation of many never before known disease states and profitable ways to exploit those alleged diseases with psychiatric services and drugs.


Video from ABC NEWS – Psychiatrists Put Kids at Risk With Mind-Altering Drugs

Across America, doctors are putting foster children on powerful, mind-altering drugs at rates up to 13 times that of children in the general population. What’s more, doctors are prescribing foster children drugs at doses beyond what the Food and Drug Administration has approved, sometimes in potentially dangerous combinations, according to a new report by the federal Government Accountability Office.

“It’s just almost beyond comprehension,” said Sen. Thomas Carper, D-Del., who asked for the GAO investigation. “We want the doctors and nurses that are prescribing these medicines to look at their behavior and think and ask this question. Are we doing something wrong here?”

In Florida, regulators have been grappling with that question since a 7-year-old boy, Gabriel Myers, killed himself in 2009 after being prescribed a powerful mix of psychotropic medication.


Big Pharma Paying Out Huge Fraud Settlements

The cost of doing business for big pharma is rising – dramatically. And it’s not because of research and development of new blockbusters to cure cancer, alleviate pain or help people get a good night’s sleep.

Merck on Tuesday said it will pay $950 million to settle criminal and civil allegations brought by the U.S. Department of Justice related to Merck’s marketing of Vioxx, a widely-used painkiller that was pulled from the shelves in 2004 after a study revealed the drug increased the risk of heart attacks. To make a very long story short, prosecutors believed Merck knew the drug posed a threat but lied about the potential risks in its marketing and sold it anyway. Why not? The drug raked in $2.5 billion in revenue in 2003.

The astounding thing about the Merck settlement is that it’s not even the largest of its kind this month. Three weeks ago, British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline, which, like Merck, has extensive operations in the U.S., reached a $3 billion settlement related to sprawling allegations tied to that company’s marketing of its diabetes drug Avandia.
The GlaxoSmithKline deal broke a record, topping a $2.3 billion settlement reached by Pfizer in September of 2009. And Pfizer’s deal came hard on the heels of a $1.4 billion settlement reached by Eli Lilly in January of 2009.

So, for those keeping score, Merck’s payout ranks fourth on the all-time list of massive settlements stemming from allegations of fraudulent marketing tactics by giant pharmaceutical companies.
