By far this was the worst year yet for infections in a long time…
Fatigue, long lasting cough, stuck mucus, pneumonia, collapsed lung….
These are the symptoms that have been going around for months and months this year.
Is there a beginning or an end to the flu season anymore? Right now it is almost July & people are still out sick with this bug!
I know there are years when we have flu pandemics and we lose millions… or some strange strand of the flu like the bird flu is taking over…. but this year was kind of a sleeper year although very different from previous years. We never heard about what the strain of this years infection was called nor did we hear about the rise in deaths from it. But we did hear often about getting the flu shot sadly. This is the vaccine that killed my mom, AND the one which is the most ineffective, yet they continue to tout it as giving you immunity from the flu. In my 25 years of practice the people who got the flu shot got the flu way more than the families that chose to not get the flu vaccine. But the one thing that has changed is that every year the so called BUG is getting stronger and stronger & lasts longer & longer. This year’s bug was one that took many people down for 3 months.
As I said, most people had serious infectious symptoms in the upper respiratory pathways such as the sinus, throat or head congestion that eventually went down into the lungs as a pneumonia. But the difference this year is that all those that took antibiotics did not get better from them. The antibiotics this year honestly did NOTHING, which means it was likely viral or fungal. That is WHY you must learn how to treat yourself with nature’s medicine for all your acute illnesses. When you choose homeopathy for your treatment, for example, it does not matter if it is a bacterial or fungal infection because we go by how you feel with your illness in the addition to the symptoms of the illness. Homeopathy was the savior in the 1917 flu pandemic!
Going to the hospital is scary these days… I totally FEAR this scenario. People are dying left and right when they go to the hospital. Do you know anyone that has died from hospital treatment? Lloyd and I lost our good friend from sepsis due to an out of control infection that was suppressed in the hospital with antibiotics. And my good friend Sue, who is an avid listener to Vidal Speaks, lost her dear brother to sepsis from what seemed like a simple infection. Sepsis is now the 3rd leading cause of death! Wow!
We used to never think about dying while during an acute infection, but these days I can tell you it is easily possible. Many infections are not bacterial and when they are they do not respond to antibiotics anymore. Add that to the weakened state of most peoples kidneys it is a recipe for disaster.
I want to explain sepsis so you understand how things go wrong fast. It is important to understand that during an infection your body is in a weakened state trying to fight the infection and in today’s world most people’s channels of elimination (kidneys, bowels and lungs) are compromised from toxic back up. During an infection we rely on those channels being open, especially the kidneys, to help us get out the wastes. Sadly, we are not taught how to clean out our organs of elimination, so when the backed up system gets an infection, and then given an anti-biotic to suppress the infection… it totally shuts down. Suppression means the infection gets pushed deeper inside. Once pushed in, the already weakened backed up kidneys shut down completely and in 24 hours sepsis sets in and the patient dies… SO SAD. I always say “ another death by drugs or our medical treatments.”
I know there is a risk to not take an anti-biotic but the risk these days is bigger to suppress such a powerful infection because of how poor most peoples elimination organs are working. I always say suppression is DEADLY and I have seen many deaths over the years when loved ones have no idea their partner or family member died from suppression.
So what can we do & what do we have to learn from this year’s infection?
We need to do 3 things:
- Learn the dangers of suppression so we reach for natures remedies to help us in times of dangerous infections vs. drugs that suppress and push the disease deeper inside.
- We need to work diligently in opening the channels of elimination, which are our kidneys, bowels, lungs and skin. I want to throw the liver and the lymphatic system in there. This is WHY I do the work I do because I want to help as many as I can learn how to do this with natural remedies.
- Be prepared with a great “wellness toolbox” so we have much of what we need in a crisis.
