Natural Treatments for Ebola

Let me preface this information with my thoughts on Ebola as a potential global pandemic.  Although, I am staying alert for any sign that this is the "Big One", so far I'm seeing more hype than evidence.  I don't mean to downplay the seriousness of this illness and my sympathy goes out to anyone who has been affected by this disease. But many of us understand the phenomena of mass fear propaganda- that things aren't always as they appear in the mainstream media.  Until I see evidence to the contrary, I think Ebola may pass the same way that N1H1 and the bird flu did. Nonetheless, I am ending this post with some simple, inexpensive remedies that may be effective in giving Ebola the boot... just in case.

First some facts behind the scare:

In 2010 the CDC actually did acquire a patent on the strain that erupted in Uganda in 2007 that killed 39 out of 116 infected patients. The CDC patent owning that particular strain of Ebola from Uganda known as “EboBun” has the patent number CA2741523A1 and can be viewed here.

Sierra Leone recently kicked out all US Ebola researchers from Tulane University and the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), a known center for biowar research headquartered at Fort Detrick, Maryland. Just prior to that event two weeks ago after three nurses died from the viral hemorrhagic fever, Sierra Leone nurses working in heavily infested Kenema district actually went on strike accusing the government’s Ministry of Health and Sanitation of mishandling the pandemic that is rapidly spreading. They complained that the medical workers caring for the ill are not properly protected and are suspicious that the American biowarfare team may be responsible for the recent surge in deaths. The Sierra Leone government then ordered the US bioweapons lab at Kenema to be moved due to the mounting anger of the local population blaming the Americans for infecting their citizens through their Ebola testing. Posted on the health ministry’s Facebook page is the conclusion that the diagnostic kits the US researchers have been using are fake and producing false results. It legitimately asks, “Have Tulane researchers done something to endanger public health?” Meanwhile, more people are becoming infected and dying there in that Sierra Leone district hospital than any other place on the planet.

In another astonishing development, a rogue doctor with extensive experience treating Ebola victims, anonymously released what he calls a simple treatment for Ebola – massive amounts of Vitamin C. Similar but far more extreme than scurvy, the Ebola virus essentially drains the body of all Vitamin C, thus depriving oxygenated blood that bursts capillaries and triggers internal hemorrhaging that in effect causes victims to bleed to death. This Ebola specialist maintains that there is no need for a vaccine and warns against them, adding his opinion that the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone was actually caused by that biowarfare research team. The doctor recommends a high dosage treatment of 500,000 mg of Vitamin C per day, emphasizing that it is not a cure but will boost the immune system giving it the strength to kill off the Ebola virus in the body.

In a recent Washington Post article it was admitted that sixty-nine percent of all the Ebola cases in Liberia registered by WHO have not been laboratory confirmed through blood tests. Liberia is the epicenter of the Ebola alarm in west Africa. More than half of the alleged Ebola deaths, 1,224, and nearly half of all cases, 2,046, have been in Liberia says WHO. And the US FDA diagnostic test used for the lab confirmation of Ebola is so flawed that the FDA has prohibited anyone from claiming they are safe or effective. That means, a significant proportion of the remaining 31 % of the Ebola cases lab confirmed through blood tests could be false cases.

If the US President were genuine about his concern to contain a public health emergency, he could look at the example of that US-declared pariah Caribbean nation, Cuba. Reuters reports that the Cuban government, a small financially distressed, economically sanctioned island nation of 11 million people, with a national budget of $50 billion, Gross Domestic Product of 121 billion and per capita GDP of just over $10,000, is dispatching 165 medical personnel to Africa to regions where there are Ebola outbreaks. Washington sends 3,000 combat troops. Something smells very rotten around the entire Ebola scare.


And now for the treatments:

The substances in the Natural Allopathic protocol for Ebola offer a power unequalled in the world of medicine that we can harness to save many lives of people infected with Ebola. However, some people would enjoy seeing millions if not billions of people die to reduce population down to a more manageable level. Others would rather stick with their professional pride or obedience to medical officials and let patients die than even think of what should work to decrease the death rate from Ebola.  It really would be a shame if the medical world stands by and lets this pandemic take hold.

The secrets of emergency room and intensive care medicine holds the key to resolving Ebola. Magnesium salts, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), iodine, selenium and vitamin C are concentrated nutritional medicinals that have been used in the direst of medical circumstances. They are widely available, inexpensive and safe to administer round the clock at high dosages.

The core of the Natural Allopathic protocol redefines the way emergency room and intensive care should be practiced on Ebola patients with proven fast-acting, safe, concentrated and mostly injectable nutritional medicines. If the Ebola infection truly gets out of hand, it is comforting for parents to know that they can legally administer these same medicinals if infected people are treated at home. All of the Natural Allopathic Medicines can be also taken orally or used transdermally (topically) to almost the same effect if treatment is started early enough.

People who either choose home care or have no other option need to treat everyone in the home at the same time whether demonstrating symptoms or not. Waiting for the contagion to spread inside a family, or with health care professionals in hospitals and clinics, is unwise. The main idea is to get out in front of the virus.

Resolving Cytokine Storms with Selenium

The highly pathogenic Zaire strain of the Ebola virus may be dependent on the trace mineral selenium (Se), due to the presence in the Ebola genome of several open reading frames (ORFs) containing clusters of up to 17 inframe UGA codons, which potentially encode the rare amino acid selenocysteine (SeC). This raises the possibility that Se deficiency in host populations may actually foster viral replication, possibly triggering outbreaks linked and perhaps even facilitating the emergence of more virulent viral strains. [2]

Selenium is a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that can control the cytokine storms provoked from out of control infections. The clinical investigations in sepsis studies indicate that higher doses of selenium are well tolerated as continuous infusions of selenium as sodium selenite (4,000 μg selenium as sodium selenite pentahydrate on the first day, 1,000 μg selenium/day on the nine following days) and had no reported toxicity issues. In view of this new information, Biosyn introduced the 1,000 µg dose vials for such high selenium clinical usage.

The primary symptoms of a cytokine storms are high fever, swelling and redness, extreme fatigue and nausea. In Ebola a combination of factors lead to death so we chose a combination approach that deals with all the factors.  In Ebola the immune reaction may be fatal with cytokine storms. To stop the cytokine storms and acute respiratory distress inject selenium or force the world of medicine to produce Dr. Emanuel Revici’s liposomal selenium, which can be administered orally in extraordinarily high dosages, much higher than is available through injections.

Dr. Revici’s greatest discovery was that if we want to deliver a nutrient to a sick cell – attach it to a fat.  Unsaturated fats are the ultimate and perfect vehicle to deliver nutrients to stressed cells.  This discovery enabled Dr. Revici to package therapeutic minerals, at will, to delivery only to sick cells. This gave him a huge advantage as a therapy developer – especially with selenium.

Revici used a special molecular form of selenium (bivalent-negative selenium) incorporated in a molecule of fatty acid. In this form, he can administer up to 1 gram of selenium per day, which corresponds to 1 million micrograms per day, reportedly with no toxic side effects. In contrast, too much selenite (hexavalent-positive selenium) has toxic effects on animals, so human intake of commercial selenite is limited to a dosage of only 100 to 150 micrograms by mouth. Dr. Revici often administered his nontoxic form of selenium by injection, usually considered to be four times more powerful than the form given orally.

The last 25 years the average daily selenium intake has fallen from 60µg/day to 35µg/day.  The UK government has established a Reference Nutrient Intake (RNI) level of selenium at 75µg/day.  Therefore a nutritional gap now exists between the actual recommended level of daily selenium and what people are actually achieving through their diets.[3]

I believe I am the only doctor who has written a book on Selenium. I have safely used dosages on myself of a special form of selenium 100 times what would normally be thought of as rational to great effect. Selenium influences both the innate, "non-adaptive" and the acquired, "adaptive" immune systems[4]-[5]-[6]-[7]-[8] The innate immune system includes barriers to infection and nonspecific effector cells such as macrophages. Both the T and B lymphocytes form the major effector cells of the acquired system that mature with exposure to immune challenges.

Selenium-deficient lymphocytes are less able to proliferate in response to mitogen, and in macrophages, leukotriene B4 synthesis, which is essential for neutrophil chemotaxis, is impaired by this deficiency. These processes can be improved by selenium supplementation. The humoral system is also affected by selenium deficiency; for example, IgM, IgG and IgA titers are decreased in rats, and IgG and IgM titers are decreased in humans. In endothelial cells from asthmatics, there is a marked selenium deficiency that results in an increase in expression of adhesion molecules, which causes greater adhesion of neutrophils.[9]

Selenium is also involved in several key metabolic activities through its selenoprotein enzymes that protect against oxidative damage.[10] Further, selenium deficiency may allow invading viruses to mutate and cause longer-lasting, more severe illness.[11] Animal research has shown selenium and vitamin E have synergistic effects, enhancing the body’s response to bacterial[12] and parasitic infections.[13]

In that selenium is a potent immune stimulator is an 18-month study of 262 patients with AIDS that found those who took a daily capsule containing 200 micrograms of selenium ended up with lower levels of the AIDS virus and more health-giving CD4 immune system cells in their bloodstreams than those taking a dummy pill.

These AIDS patients who took selenium were able to suppress the deadly virus in their bodies and boost their fragile immune systems, adding to evidence that selenium has healing powers we need to pay attention to in treating Ebola patients.[14] Those with severely compromised immune systems due to AIDS had dramatically better immune system response with selenium supplementation and this finding is consistent with the information presented by the NIH on their selenium web site.

Magnesium for Acute Illness

Magnesium chloride (magnesium oil) has always been and remains my favorite first line medicine that affects overall physiology. Dr. Raul Vergini from Italy says, “Magnesium chloride has a unique healing power on acute viral and bacterial diseases. It cured polio and diphtheria and that was the main subject of my magnesium book. A few grams of magnesium chloride every few hours will clear nearly most acute illnesses, which can be beaten in a few hours. I have seen a lot of flu cases healed in 24-48 hours with 3 grams of magnesium chloride taken every 6-8 hours.” My recommendation would be to follow Dr. Vergini’s suggestion and augmenting that with Transdermal Magnesium Therapy.  The second edition of Transsdermal Magnesium Therapy is also available in hardcopy from

Hemorrhagic Infections Resolved with Vitamin C

Ebola virus was initially recognized in 1976. Other less known but related viral syndromes, that can be treated with this protocol include yellow fever, dengue hemorrhagic fever, Rift Valley fever, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, Kyasanur Forest disease, Omsk hemorrhagic fever, hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever, Brazilian hemorrhagic fever, Argentine hemorrhagic fever, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, and Lassa fever. The Ebola virus infection, also known as African hemorrhagic fever, has the distinction of having the highest case-fatality rate of the viral infections noted above, ranging from 53% to 88%.

To date, no viral infection has been demonstrated to be resistant to the proper dosing of vitamin C as classically demonstrated by Klenner. However, not all viruses have been treated with Klenner-sized vitamin C doses, or at least the results have not been published. Ebola viral infection and the other acute viral hemorrhagic fevers appear to be diseases that fall into this category. Because of the seemingly exceptional ability of these viruses to rapidly deplete vitamin C stores, even larger doses of vitamin C would likely be required in order to effectively reverse and eventually cure infections caused by these viruses.[15]

Cathcart (1981), who introduced the concept of bowel tolerance to vitamin C hypothesized that Ebola and the other acute viral hemorrhagic fevers may well require 500,000 mg of vitamin C daily to reach bowel tolerance! Whether this estimate is accurate, it seems clear as evidenced by the scurvy-like clinical manifestations of these infections that vitamin C dosing must be vigorous and given in extremely high doses. If the disease seems to be winning, then even more vitamin C should be given until symptoms begin to lessen. Obviously, these are viral diseases that would absolutely require high doses of vitamin C intravenously as the initial therapy. The oral administration should begin simultaneously, but the intravenous route should not be abandoned until the clinical response is complete.[16] Death occurs too quickly with the hemorrhagic fevers to be conservative when dosing the vitamin C.

Viral hemorrhagic fevers typically only take hold and reach epidemic proportions in those populations that would already be expected to have low body stores of vitamin C, such as is found in many of the severely malnourished Africans. In such individuals, an infecting hemorrhagic virus will often wipe out any remaining vitamin C stores before the immune systems can get the upper hand and initiate recovery. When the vitamin C stores are rapidly depleted by large infecting doses of an aggressive virus, the immune system gets similarly depleted and compromised.

According to Dr. Thomas Levy, M.D. “Many viral infectious diseases have been cured and can continue to be cured by the proper administration of Vitamin C.  Yes, the vaccinations for these treatable infectious diseases are completely unnecessary when one has the access to proper treatment with vitamin C. And, yes, all the side effects of vaccinations…are also completely unnecessary since the vaccinations do not have to be given in the first place with the availability of properly dosed vitamin C."[17]

Intravenous vitamin C is a powerful treatment when people are on the edge between life and death from hemorrhagic fevers with the power to bring people back from the brink. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is known to perform many critical functions within the body involving detoxification, tissue building, immune enhancement, pain control, and controlling or killing pathogenic organisms.

Dr Robert Cathcart, who has more experience treating deadly infections with high dose vitamin C than any other doctor, says “the Ebola virus kills by way of free radicals which can be neutralized by massive doses of sodium ascorbate intravenously. Note on another hemorrhagic fever (acute induced scurvy): Nurse Pineo, the first white that survived the Lassa fever (another hemorrhagic fever) outbreak in Lassa, was, on her own, taking vitamins.[18] It does not take a genius to figure out that with the increased bowel tolerance to oral ascorbic acid somewhat proportional to the toxicity of the disease that the most serious infectious diseases would rapidly exhaust all the bodies vitamin C, acute induced scurvy, and cause bleeding all over the body and finally free radical deaths.

Dr. Robert Cathcart M.D. states “My experience with giving massive doses of ascorbic acid orally to over 30,000 patients and with giving intravenous sodium ascorbate to over 2,000 patients would indicate that with Ebola and other viral hemorrhagic fever diseases that should be used in doses beginning with at least 180 grams per 24 hours. If the fever is not controlled or the symptoms are not reduced, the dosage and the rate of administration should be increased until they are controlled.”

Sodium Bicarbonate Rides to the Rescue

“In 1918 and 1919 while fighting the ‘Flu’ with the U. S. Public Health Service it was brought to my attention that rarely anyone who had been thoroughly alkalinized with bicarbonate of soda contracted the disease, and those who did contract it, if alkalinized early, would invariably have mild attacks. I have since that time treated all cases of ‘cold,’ influenza and ‘la gripe’ by first giving generous doses of bicarbonate of soda, and in many, many instances within 36 hours the symptoms would have entirely abated,” wrote Dr. Volney S. Cheney to the Arm & Hammer Company.

Dr. Revici also discovered pH modulation as the key to pain control and disease containment. A localized pH imbalance causes both pain and stress to nearby tissues. As the stress weakens nearby tissues, they become vulnerable. This is crucial because inflammation from pH imbalance interferes with oxygen delivery to nearby tissues, which in turn weakens nearby cells again increasing vulnerability. Control of the regional pH imbalance helps to contain pathology – by protecting nearby cells from chemical burns from pH imbalance.

Slowing the breathing down with a Breathslim breathing device will also work strongly to reinforce the actions of sodium bicarbonate—it will increase carbon dioxide as well as oxygen levels—while providing calming comfort.

Vitamin D – Perfect Helpmate to Vitamin C

Vitamin D reduces the risk of dying from a viral infection. Researchers from Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, New York found that giving supplements of vitamin D to a group of volunteers reduced episodes of infection with colds and flu by 70% over three years. The researchers said that vitamin D stimulates “innate immunity” to viruses and bacteria. Very few have any idea that Vitamin D can be taken in high dosages like Vitamin C can.

Never Forget Iodine

“Extremely high doses of iodine can have serious side effects, but only a small fraction of such extreme doses are necessary to kill influenza viruses,” writes Dr. David Derry of Canada. In 1945, a breakthrough occurred when J. D. Stone and Sir McFarland Burnet (who later went on to win a Nobel Prize for his Clonal Selection Theory) exposed mice to lethal effects of influenza viral mists. Pathology was prevented by putting iodine solution on mice snouts just prior to placing them in chambers containing influenza viruses. Dr. Derry also reminds us that a long time ago students in classrooms were protected from influenza by iodine aerosol therapy. Aerosol iodine also is effective against freshly sprayed influenza virus.

Iodine is a must when dealing with deadly viruses and would go a long way in decreasing the death rate from Ebola. Dr. Gabriel Cousens wrote, “Historically, as early as 1911, people normally took between 300,000-900,000 micrograms of iodine daily without incident. Other researchers have used between 3,000 and 6,000 micrograms/day to prevent goiter.” Deficiencies in iodine have a great effect on the immune system.

Medical Marijuana

Dr. Ben Whalley, at the department of pharmacy at the University of Reading, said tests in animals had shown the marijuana compounds effective at preventing seizures and convulsions while also having fewer side effects than existing epilepsy drugs. At the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Md., rat nerve cells were exposed to a toxin that is typically released during strokes. Cannabidiol reduces the extent of damage reported the National Academy of Sciences. More effective than vitamins C or E, strong antioxidants such as cannabidiol (CBD) will neutralize free radicals without the accompanying high with regular marijuana used for recreational and other medical purposes. All forms of marijuana have anti-oxidative, neuroprotective, immunomodulation, analgesic and anti-inflammatory actions.

Infrared Therapy

Infrared therapy increases core body temperature. By raising the body temperature by one to three degrees, an infrared session mimics a fever, which triggers an immune system response and enables the body to fight bacteria and viruses.

 hypothermia related to life

According to Professor Abo Touru of Nagata University our immune functions are improved by 40% when we increase our body temperature by 1 degree. Infrared heat (light induced heat) relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing blood circulation. Better circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen depleted cells, reduces pain and speeds up the healing process.

Having BioMats installed in every hospital bed would insure that fewer die from Ebola nor from the avian or any flu. Bathing patients in light and heating their internal environments boosts their metabolism and improve their immune systems. Patients in bed can use low levels of infrared around the clock making them comfortable and dealing with the chills that often come with high fevers.

If one can afford to purchase a BioMat for home use know it is extraordinarily helpful for the patient to be comforted by light and heat. The sicker we are the greater the comfort. Whether it be Ebola or the common flu there is nothing like laying on a BioMat when one is sick.

”It seems clear that light is the most important environmental input, after food, in controlling bodily function,” reported Richard J. Wurtman, a nutritionist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Several experiments have shown that different colors affect blood pressure, pulse and respiration rates as well as brain activity and biorhythms. Light heals, light comforts, light nurtures us on deep levels.


According to Dr. Russell Blaylock, low magnesium is associated with dramatic increases in free radical generation as well as glutathione depletion. According to Dr. Patricia Kongshavn, former professor, department of medicine at McGill University, “Glutathione is required in many of the intricate steps needed to carry out an immune response. It is needed for the lymphocytes to multiply in order to develop a strong immune response, and for killer lymphocytes to be able to kill undesirable cells such as cancer cells or virally infected cells. The importance of glutathione cannot be overstated. It has multiple roles as indicated and, indeed, as one examines each system or organ more closely, the necessity for glutathione becomes increasingly evident.

Glutathione values decline with age and higher values in older people are seen to correlate with better health, underscoring the importance of this remarkable substance for maintaining a healthy, well-functioning body.”


These emergency-room-class medicinals and therapeutic processes deliver lifesaving-healing power. When one learns about the above intensive care medicines, and how to use them, one gains a lot of medical power and wisdom to overcome the complications and even discomforts of the worst viral infections. For more information about these selected intensive care medicines please see videos and references to suppliers on the Natural Allopathic Protocol page.

There are always other medicinals one can employ. However when practicing emergency and intensive care medicine one wants to select the most powerful substances that are quick acting and safe to take at high dosages. I also recommend that physicians and other healthcare professionals as well as every household to have a good nebulizer and use a high-grade colloidal silver as well as a sodium bicarbonate glutathione product alternating between the two.



Additionally, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (within the US Dept. of Defense) released an unclassified document which outlines the use of Nano silver specifically to treat Ebola. pdf/ defense-threat-reduction-agency-silver-nanoparticles-neutralize-hemor rhagic-fever-viruses.pdf

I have felt from the beginning this is another effort to promote fear and spread policy and programs that many of us are not in favor of up to and potentially including vaccines that are not safe for anyone. I read an article (and thought I already posted it here) from Michael Tierra, a well known and highly respected herbalist on TCM and ebola-I've posted here now since I don't see it.  Although some of his remedies seem strange (Bulls horn for one) the info is valuable.  Just the point he puts forth about hemorrhagic fevers not being a new thing is worth consideration and gives hope for recovery should this be allowed to spread.  from:

Ebola and Traditional Chinese Medicine: Nothing New Under the Sun?

Written by 

    While I don’t think it is appropriate for any herbalist or alternative practitioner to claim to be an expert in treating such an obviously dangerous disease as Ebola, it might be of interest to know that there is a historical precedent for treating hemorrhagic diseases such as Ebola in the history of traditional Chinese medicine. In the 14th century, Wang Lu (Wang An-Dao, 1332-1391) wrote that some infectious diseases could be caused directly by “Heat.” “Heat” in the traditional sense did not refer to atmospheric temperature but represented the acknowledgement of contagious infectious diseases with a specific set of symptoms.  About a hundred years later, the physician Wang Ji (Wang Shi-Shan, 1463-1539) proposed that such diseases could be contracted directly. Finally it was as recent as the Qing dynasty (1644-1911) that the Warm disease theory was codified and diagnostic and treatment protocols were set forth, obviously based on the experience of numerous Chinese physicians successfully treating these conditions.

    To back up a bit, we need to understand that the germ theory of disease which refers to the presence of small microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, protists (such as protozoa), fungi or prions, confirmed by microscopes strong enough to detect them, could only be inferred. This was true both in China as well as the West where the germ theory was first proposed in the mid-16th century. This gained widespread credence with further discoveries during the 17th century.

    In the early history of China infectious diseases caused by Heat were only hinted at in ancient texts such as the Yellow Emperor, long before the distinction between diseases caused by the energetic concepts of Cold and Heat was made. Similar to the Western traditional medicine encompassing ancient Greco-Roman and Arabic medicine, the etiology of diseases first compiled in the 2nd century attributed the major factors of diseases to be the individual’s constitution, environmental factors including and especially climate and seasonal conditions, bad diet, overwork and emotional imbalance.

    These were broadly divided in Chinese medicine into two main categories:

    1. Internal damage caused by constitution, diet, work, stress or emotions.
    2. External diseases caused by atmospheric environmental factors such as wind, cold, summer heat, dampness, dryness, or fire.

    This led to the creation of one of the first and arguably the most important clinical manual of Chinese medicine called the Shang Han Lun (Discussion of diseases caused by Cold damage) by Zhang Zhong-Jing in the early 3rd century. This text outlines six stages of disease and 108 formulas considered by many to be the core to the practice of TCM. As a result of wandering Chinese Buddhist monks visiting Japan soon afterward, this same group of formulas was adopted and form the basis of traditional Japanese Chinese Medicine known in Japan as Kanpo.

    Many of these formulas happen to have considerable anti-pathogenic properties; they treat infectious diseases directly or work to stimulate the body’s innate ability to fight pathogens. Many of these types of Cold Damage diseases are self-limiting, meaning that given a supportive health regime, the formulas listed in the Shang Han Lun were and still are effective in preventing, lessening the severity and duration of symptoms.

    The theory of Warm diseases developed in the 17th century is based on the recognition of especially virulent infectious diseases, most of which are viral. These diseases are so life threatening that the repertoire of formulas described in the Shang Han Lun are barely if at all effective.  

    Warm disease theory describes four basic levels of disease progression especially relevant for the treatment of infectious diseases caused by Heat:

    1. Protective level: the body’s innate defenses (immune system or Wei Qi) are weakened and a pathogen is able to penetrate. At this level there is fever, slight aversion to cold, chills (forming a bridge between the early classification of diseases caused by Cold), slight thirst, red-tipped tongue with a thin, white coat and a floating and rapid pulse.
    2. Qi level: At this level, the pathogen (virus) penetrates. The fever is stronger, there is profuse sweating, thirst for cold drinks, yellow coated tongue, and a flooding and slippery pulse.
    3. Nutritive (Ying) level: The Yin (body fluids) are depleted and this causes a disturbance of the spirit (Heart). Here the fever is especially worse at night, there is restlessness, occasional delirium or muddled consciousness and a deep red tongue.
    4. Blood (Xue) level: The virus penetrates deeply and affects the blood. Symptoms of high fever, muddled consciousness, coma, various kinds of bleeding and a very deep red tongue.

    What distinguishes the category of Warm Diseases are:

    • Symptoms appear very quickly
    • Heat signs and symptoms predominate
    • The hot nature of pathogens affect and injure the fluids (Yin) and Blood.

    One might further add to this that diseases caused by Heat are contagious, seasonal, endemic and epidemic meaning that they can be transmitted to others.

    It is most obvious that influenza caused by virus would be included in the category of warm diseases. While it is not always easy to distinguish between the common cold (caused by the rhinovirus) and influenza, the differentiation between the two rests in the degree of heat or feverishness which is higher with a Warm Disease influenza virus. Most importantly, with diseases caused by Heat, the degree of heat or inflammation results in a sore throat.

    These categories of Warm disease are especially represented in the first two levels and is treated by one of the most popular over the counter TCM formulas called Yin Chiao powder (Honeysuckle and Forsythia Combination).

    While all four stages can be critical for some people who are severely weakened and die from influenza, the most life-threatening stages of disesaes caused by Heat are the 3rd and 4th stages. I recommend that only the most experienced herbalists treat 3rd and 4th stage Heat diseases, and also refer to conventional Western medical treatment.

    Based on its known symptomology of high fever, body aches, vomiting, dehydration and internal and/or external bleeding describing a severe form of hemorrhagic fever, Ebola would be a fourth Level Warm Disease.

    While Western medical doctors are clamoring to find effective prevention and treatment protocols for Ebola it may be worth studying the two primary TCM formulas and in particular a single unique ingredient indicated for these stages of Heat disease (including Ebola, meningitis, encephalitis, septicemia, boils, acute leukemia, and hepatic coma).

    The first is Qing Ying Tang [Decoction to disperse Pathogenic Heat from the Ying (Blood-Nutrient) System]. The second is Buffalo Horn and Rehmannia Decoction.

    Both of these include Bubali cornu (water buffalo or bull horn) at a dose of 30 grams daily with the other herbs in the respective formulas.

    Buffalo horn contains a number of therapeutically active biochemical constituents including keratin, glutamic acid, aspartic acid, and the amino acids cystine, leucine and arginine. In addition it contains a number of trace elements including sodium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. TCM describes it as being salty in flavor and having a cold energy. It enters the Heart, Liver and Stomach meridians. It is antipyretic and antitoxic or Heat-clearing. It clears Heat from the Blood which stops bleeding symptoms associated with fever. It is useful for fever, convulsions caused by febrile diseases and can also be applied topically to treat skin eruptions caused by febrile diseases.

    Cow horn, but especially bull horn, clears infectious Heat, high fever, removes viral or bacterial toxins, calms the mind and relieves convulsions.  A 2010 study published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine confirmed and reported that Bubali Cornu had antipyretic activity in rats and lowering temperature.

    Hemorrhagic fever occurs when fever is so severe that it results in bleeding. This can be externally from rashes on the body or internally with vomiting of blood, bleeding in the intestinal tract, nose bleed and blood in the stools and urine.

    It is the added complication of incessant sweating, vomiting and diarrhea that results in the severe depletion of Yin (fluids). Around-the-clock intravenous hydration has proven to be one of the most effective medical treatment for Ebola patients.

    To replenish and guard against this depletion of fluids, other herbs that should be considered when treating hemorrhagic fever are strongly moistening herbs such as unprepared Rehmannia glutinosa, Ophiopogon root and Scrophularia root. These are effective for lubricating, and nourishing both Blood and Yin. Bamboo shavings clear Heat and are very effective for stopping vomiting, cooling Blood Heat and stopping bleeding including nosebleed and vomiting of blood.  Chinese red sage (dan shen) moves and cools blood, and calms the mind. The antiviral heat clearing combination of coptis root, lonicera flower and forsythia buds are effective antiviral and antibacterial agents. Together with 15 to 30 grams of water buffalo horn, the combination of all of these herbs are found in Qing Ying Tang.

    Another formula, Water Buffalo (or bull horn) and Rehmannia Combination, combines 15-30 grams of buffalo horn, 20-30 grams of unprepared Rehmannia, 1-15 grams of red peony root and 9-12 grams of moutan peony root. This formula is indicated if the symptoms of bleeding and blood stagnation (with broken blood vessels under the skin) are more pronounced.

    I hope I never have to treat hemorrhagic fevers. However, one must always be prepared and certainly in the present fear-ridden crisis it is somewhat reassuring to know that even with the threat of this Ebola outbreak it is not a new disease. While Western medicine scrambles to find a vaccine and possible effective drugs, there is a tradition dating back to 17th century in China for its treatment.



    Stephen Buhner, Master Herbalist

    A BRIEF LOOK AT EBOLA In the fall of 2014, for the first time, ebola broke out of the African nations and reached (via airplane, as epidemiologists had long predicted it would) the United States, I began receiving scores of emails asking for some deeper information regarding herbal approaches to help prevent and treat the condition.

    This is a brief exploration to address those concerns. The virus and its effects really does need an in-depth treatment, especially going into its nature and function as I do in the coinfection books. I would like to, as well, to cite all the journal articles I used, as I did in those books, but so many people are asking (and I have so little time and certainly none to do an entire book on the virus) that I am just posting the pertinent information here. Much of this will go into the Herbal Antiviral book during an upcoming reprint but due to space limitations I am not sure how much. This protocol should do a lot to help prevent or reduce infection and, if necessary, help combat the septic shock that occurs in
    the later stages of the disease.

    There are four species of ebola that can cause human disease; the virus responsible for the 2014 outbreak is (Zaire ebolavirus ) which causes anywhere from a 40% to a 90% mortality rate. The virus is highly virulent and actively subverts both the innate and adaptive immune responses. Although up to half of those infected are able to mount an immune defense, in the rest the virus so subverts the immune response it progresses to an acute hemorrhagic fever which is often fatal. This group of viruses is relatively new to human science, the first identification occurring in 1976 during an outbreak in Zaire.

    Infection generally occurs from direct contact with infected bodily fluids such as blood or the vomit and diarrhea that often occur with the disease. Infection through direct skin contact with an infected person or through contact with blankets the infected have used has also been documented but is much less common. There is some concern among virologists that the disease could mutate to an infectious airborne type; it has not been documented so far. As with most viruses, onset is flu-like with the usual fever, chills, and so on, generally after a 4-10 day incubation period. A rash often appears around day five which is the only way to differentiate it, in its early stages, from the flu.

    Generally, the liver, spleen, kidneys, adrenals, and endothelial structures are heavily infected, often leading to organ necrosis and failure. During fatal infections the endothelial structures of the vascular system fail with accompanying blood loss. The virus inhibits and modulates the immune response, ultimately producing a powerful cytokine storm, leading to septic shock. The latter stages of the infection are, in fact, nearly identical to the 1918 flu (see The Herbal Antiviral book for more on this). The primary cytokines that increase during severe and fatal infections are IL-1b, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-15 and 16, and MIP-1beta; interferon-a levels are severely reduced as is IL-2 through 5, IL-9, IL-13 and a severe drop of both CD+3CD4+ and CD3+Cd8+ peripheral cells.

    Those who successfully recover show the opposite profile, hence decreasing those cytokines and increasing IFN-a and other reduced cytokines is crucial. Protecting the affected organs, reducing the cytokine cascade, and enhancing immune function are essential.

    A number of substances has been found useful for interfering with viral penetration and replication as well as protecting the affected organs and modulating the ebola effects on the immune system. (Please note the following dosage guidelines are, at the lower end, protective, at the higher end, for use during early infection. Long term use of these amounts is contraindicated.

    )The suggested protocol is: * General antiviral formulation: Isatis, Baikal skullcap root, licorice, equal parts of the tinctures, 1 tablespoon 3-6x daily. Broad spectrum antiviral combination, skullcap and licorice are synergists, licorice enhances IFN-a production, all acts in various ways to reduce ebola cytokines. * Elder tincture: Needs to be produced from stem, leaf, and berries as outlined in this book. Dose to bowel tolerance, from ¼ tsp to 1 tbl 3-6x daily. * Genistein powder, 1 teaspoon 3-6x daily. Inhibits both infection with the virus and transduction in infected cells. * Milk Thistle Seed, standardized capsules, 2500 mg 3-6x daily. Protects the liver and contains compounds that reduce viral replication and penetration of cells. * Salvia miltiorrhizae (red sage) tincture, 1 tablespoon tincture 3-6x daily. Protects the spleen, enhances immune function, reduces cytokine cascade. * Japanese knotweed root (Polygonum cuspidatum), 1 tablespoon of powder or tincture 3-6x daily. Protects endothelial cell integrity, reduces cytokine cascade. TO REDUCE CYTOKINE STORM/SEPTIC SHOCK (all tinctures) 1) Angelica sinensis/Astragalus spp, equal parts, 1 tbl each hour 2) Salvia miltiorrhiza, 1 tbl each hour 3) Pueria lobata/Cordyceps, equal parts, 1 tbl each hour 4) Glycyrrhiza (licorice)/Bailak skullcap, equal parts, 1 tbl each hour Note: this has been found in vivo to stop exactly this kind of septic shock.

              I should have mentioned this in the beck discussion. If it is true that it killed aids, and all those other things, than it is impartial to the nature of the virus, any virus,,,it is death by electrocution, and we could be using blood electroporation for things like this, and malaria,,and just about anything!

    I just listened to Jon Rappaprt on the Higher Side Chats - I'm not sure if it's available unless you have a susbsciption but the very short summary is that he makes an excellent case that it is entirely fake news - a cover-up for weakening the African nations to grab their oil. It's a new twist on what John Perkins describes in Confessions of an Economic Hitman - instead of war or directly attacking the nations leaders, weaken the population with environmental pollution, vaccines and starvation but call it as a disease, use that to take away civil liberties, bring in the military to "help" enforce quarentines, then take control of the nation's resources.

    Brilliant, Chris!

    This may be the video that Wendy is referring to.  I haven't listened to it yet, but usually Red Ice Radio publishes part 1 for free and reserves part 2 for subscribers.



    Here's another one he did with Alex Jones:

    Couldn't agree more as relates to John Perkin's personal experience with such geopolitical "strateegeries".  The other thing that occured to me as possibility is the beta testing of bio warfare viruses and follow up vaccines.  Why test on monkeys when you can test on unassuming human subjects.

    For those who find it acceptable to test on animals in product testing (there's a huge industry in the animal supply business for such things), why would anyone be that surprised to discover the same is now happening to certain poor disenfranchised human populations???

    Sure seems like those in positions of power to execute such programs have given themselves and others the green light for such hideous actions.  Wonder what the checkered flag is going to look like when this self destructive insanity has run its course???

    To those alleged ancient, wealthy and wise Chinese and Japanese families with all that gold - you can engage any time now!!!!!
