Why U.S. Ebola patients get better quicker

nurse with IV solution(NaturalHealth365) To date, the United States has only seen 9 cases of Ebola. One patient has died and all others have recovered with the exception of one New York City doctor still ‘in treatment’ since Oct. 23. So, why are Ebola patients in the U.S. recovering so quickly; but, in Africa, the death rate can be as high as 90 percent?

On Oct. 29, Dr. Bruce Ribner of Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, where nurse Amber Vinson was treated (and fully recovered) says, “the honest answer is we’re not exactly sure.” What’s strange about this comment, by Dr. Ribner, is the obvious omission of his professional knowledge – which was admitted just one day prior to this rather vague remark.

Simple solution for the Ebola virus revealed by the mainstream media and doctors

At a press conference, on Oct. 28, Dr. Ribner – the medical director of the infectious diseases unit at Emory University Hospital – made it very clear why some patients do better than others, in dealing with Ebola.

Dr. Ribner said: “Clearly, for any acutely ill patient, nutritional status is extremely important”. He goes on to say, “if you have somebody who is well nourished and you have somebody who is poorly nourished, and they suffer the same illness, infectious or otherwise, the person who has better nutrition has a better survival outlook.”

It’s no coincidence that Liberia, one of the world’s poorest nations and hardest hit by Ebola, has nearly 40 percent of the population chronically malnourished – according to a 2012 government-led survey.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, we already know how to prevent, even reverse the effects of infectious disease. It’s called having a strong immune system by way of better nutrition and lifestyle habits.

Most Americans are NOT hearing the truth about the Ebola virus

Don’t be misled by fear-mongering (corporately controlled) mainstream media outlets. With a small amount of investigative effort, you can find lots of medically-sound advice about how to eliminate the threat of potentially-deadly, infectious diseases.

Let’s get to the point here – how do we minimize the risk of Ebola? Just listen to the experts – it’s so clear:

“The crisis is evolving in a context of chronic fragility, with high poverty, high market dependency, poor crop yields, and low health indicators,” – Fabienne Pompey, a spokeswoman for the United Nations’ World Food Programme in West Africa

“Studies of African patients have shown that ones who are in better condition at the time of infection – with better nutrition and overall health – are more likely to survive Ebola.” – Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine in at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston

“Although several cases have now occurred in American healthcare workers, the rapid spread is mainly occurring in Africans that don’t have anything close to the average nutritional status of even a teenager in the United States subsisting predominantly on Chicken McNuggets.” – Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD

So, if top medical experts are all in agreement about the importance of nutritional status, why is this message NOT getting out to the public?

Good nutrition is (obviously) the common theme behind all of these comments. Yet, the doctors in charge of treating Ebola patients in the United States, don’t know why Americans are recovering so quickly from Ebola? Are you kidding me?  Maybe these doctors should read my article about the ‘best ways to stop Ebola‘.

Infectious disease experts, like Dr. Ribner, know that Ebola patients die due to a ‘cytokine storm’ or extreme immune response to the virus.  If poorly treated, the Ebola virus can create a high fever; nausea; vomiting and diarrhea – which leads to severe dehydration; massive cellular inflammation; internal bleeding and eventually death – especially in the poorest countries in Africa.

An effective way to deal with viral infections

According to Mark Sircus, AC., OMD, DM (P), “selenium is a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that can control the cytokine storms provoked from out of control infections.” If you want to learn more about the benefits of selenium – pick up a copy of “Selenium Medicine”, written by Dr. Sircus.

Let’s not forget the importance of magnesium.  According to Dr. Raul Vergini from Italy, “Magnesium chloride has a unique healing power on acute viral and bacterial diseases.” He goes on to say…

“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.”

And, finally, thanks to the work of Fredrick Klenner, MD – we know that no viral infection (to date) has been able to resist the proper administration of high-dose vitamin C therapy. So, why don’t we test high-dose IV or ‘Lypo-Spheric’ vitamin C against Ebola?  After all, we know that in advance stages of Ebola – the human body is severely depleted of vitamin C – which sets the stage for internal bleeding and death.

We, at NaturalHealth365, would love to see a clinical trial set up – using Dr. Levy’s “multi-C protocol” – for Ebola patients. What have we got to lose? But, up until now, the powers that be are NOT willing to try it. I wonder why?

Of course, sodium bicarbonate, vitamin D, iodine, medical cannabis, far infrared heat, glutathione and medical ozone therapy poses tremendous abilities to eliminate the threat of viral infections and boost immune function – at the same time.

When will the leaders of Ebola-affected countries really take charge of the situation?

Come on people, this virus is easy to control by simply improving the nutritional status of those high-risk populations in Africa and around the world.  Instead of spending millions of dollars on ‘experimental’ vaccine research, let’s focus our attention on helping poorer nations grow organic food; improve the living conditions within third world countries and, of course, get much needed healthcare supplies to those Ebola clinics.

Now, is not a time to play ‘political games’ or to be closed-minded toward highly-effective, natural protocols for viral infections. Lives are at stake – it’s time to solve the problem.

I’m asked all the time: ‘what do I take to keep my immune system strong?’  Some of my favorite nutritional supplements can be found at Nutrex-Hawaii (Hawaiian Spirulina and Astaxanthin); plus, on a daily basis, I consume non-GMO, Ultra Fine Vitamin C powder and, for all my trace mineral needs, I use QuintEssential marine solution – which can be found at the NaturalHealth365 Store.
