have genetically developed a natural method to defeat viral infections
called a fever. With a mild fever of 101 degrees the telomers on the ends
of the RNA molecule cannot attach and the virus cannot reproduce itself,
and the body's white blood cells quickly destroy the invading virus. But
the modern “regular” treatment for a fever from a cold or flu is to reduce
the fever to ease the discomfort. This is wrong.
traditional knowledge of how to quickly and effectively cure a common cold
or flu infection due to viruses has been known worldwide since ancient
times. But you are not supposed to know that. You are not supposed to know
that you can quickly cure a viral infection overnight by yourself and at
no cost to you. You are supposed to believe that you need costly medications
and medical treatments to cure new life-threatening diseases.
advice: do not try to lower a fever, it is your genetically derived natural
human defense against any viral infection. Stay wrapped up and warm to
cause a sweat. Drink fluids to replace the water lost by sweating. And
within 6 to 8 hours overnight the cold or flu is gone. Many older doctors
knew this, which is the reason for the old docs advice, “go to bed, stay
warm, drink fluids.” But younger docs just out of med school have been
taught there is a drug or pill to treat everything. The result of using
expensive pills or over-the-counter medications to reduce the fever from
colds and flu is prolonged illness, the epidemic spread of viral diseases
and the unneeded deaths of hundreds of thousands each year. Don’t buy it.
IN THE MEDICINE CABINET
ONE: The Deadliest Killer of the 20th Century, With More Deaths Than All
the World Wars, Lurks Right Inside Your House, and Threatens to Take You
and Your Family. The Story No One Told You.
1918, a virulent, never seen before, form of influenza seemed to suddenly
appear. It seemed to kill within hours, and spread around the world within
days. It seemed to appear simultaneously all around the world. Its spread
was faster than any then known means of human travel.
2004, the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization
warned of repeats of such a rapid and deadly pandemic, through such variants
of influenza as SARS and Bird Flu. But without knowing what caused the
1918 pandemic or how it spread, how can the CDC or WHO make such a claim?
Unless they already know something they are not telling.
yet no one has been able to identify the actual medical cause of the 1918
Flu, with only a few samples of a "bird-like" virus taken from only several
cadaver tissue samples. But no sample is complete. And those are only one
or two samples from among the estimated 20 to 40 million people who seemed
to die mysteriously almost overnight. The 1918 Flu spread faster and was
more deadly, killing more people than even the Plague and Black Death of
the middle ages. Why does no one talk about it?
even if the viral cause were identified, no one can explain the lightning
fast spread of the disease. Maybe it wasn't a disease after all. Many researchers
have even looked at some world-wide phenomena, such as extra-terrestrial
biology filtering into the atmosphere from outer space. Or maybe, the jet
stream spreading disease-laden dust from Asia all around the world in a
matter of days. In an area of investigation where there seems to be no
real facts and less logic, any "fringe theory" or "outre logic" is just
as valid as any other. Maybe something about the 1918 Flu is being covered
up. Something that we are not supposed to know.
there is another rather simple mundane solution to the medical mystery.
There did exist in 1918 a then new technical invention by which the "disease"
was spread almost at the speed of light. The "1918 Flu" was spread around
the world almost instantaneously by telephone. Of course, that claim needs
an explanation, and proof.
the 1890's an American chemist made an improvement on an old home folk
remedy called Willow or Aspen Tea. It seemed to relieve the pains of old-age
gout, arthritis and other assorted pains. But the evil tasting tea containing
acetylsalicylic acid was so strong that it caused many people to have nausea
and vomiting, along with the pain relief if they could tolerate drinking
the tea. This potion was later neutralized, synthesized and buffered, and
then sold to the German Bayer company as a pain reliever.
researched the source and history of the name Aspirin and found no reasonable
explanation has ever been found. I have found, instead, that the German
Bayer company, in order to sell to both the American and European markets,
used a name familiar in both markets. In America the common folk remedy
form was called "Aspen Tea" made from boiling willow bark from the Aspen
tree family. In Europe, the same home remedy was called "Spirain Tea" made
from boiling the leaves of the common European shrub Spirae.
preparations were found to contain large amounts of natural acetylsalicylic
acid, but unbuffered. Combining the common home-remedy folklore names Aspen
and Spirain comes up with the Euro-American brand name Aspirin. My research
is the sole source for the information about that unique derivation of
the brand name.
reason for the deep confusion and lack of any clear history about the trade
name is that for almost a decade from 1905 to about 1915, the use of the
trade name, and the source of the name Aspirin, was tied up in international
courts. In the late 1890's when Aspirin became available as an easy to
use "pop a pill" replacement to the sour tasting Aspen or Spirain Teas,
many people used it to relieve the pain of joint arthritis. Many users
also discovered, quite by accident, a unique side effect. If you had a
fever when you took the Aspirin, it also made the fever suddenly go away.
What a discovery! It appeared to be a cure for the the common cold and
1905 many other drug companies were making acetylsalicylic acid preparations
and calling it Aspirin, but they were selling it as a common cold remedy.
Bayer took these other companies to court and sued over illegal use of
their trademark. Many people believe that Bayer lost the decision and lost
control of the name Aspirin. Most believe that Aspirin is now a generic
name such as Kleenex, Scotch Tape or Xerox. Not so. It was an odd court
decision and a confusing compromise. By 1915 it was decided in court that
Bayer had the exclusive use of the trade name Aspirin, if it were sold as
a pain-relieving analgesic.
court also found that the other companies could also use the name Aspirin,
if in their ads and packaging, they claimed that their product was an anti-febril
agent or a fever reducer. This odd court decision is still in use today.
You can still buy Bayer aspirin to relieve pain, and on the store shelf
right next to it is Nyquil, Aleve, Tylenol, Motrin, Bufferin, Anacin and
a whole long list of others, all containing aspirin or aspirin-like compounds
and claiming to be treatments for Colds, Flu and Fever. Reducing fever
was not in Bayer's original patent claim. Bayer didn't know in 1895 of
the use of aspirin as a fever reducer and had not put that in their original
how does that strange court decision fit into the rapid spread of the 1918
Flu? The primary defense which the human body has, to stop the spread of
viral infections is to produce a fever. The fever is not a symptom of disease,
but is actually the body's primary anti-viral immune system. The fever
stops the telomeres on the ends of viral RNA from making copies of itself.
telomeres are like a zipper which unzips and separates the new RNA copy
within miliseconds, but the telomeres are temperature sensitive and won't
unzip at temperatures above 101F. Thus the high temperature of the fever,
stops the flu virus from dividing and spreading. It is an immune system
response which only mammals have developed to prevent the spread of viral
flu infections, which mostly 99% come from the more ancient dinosaur-like
earth life forms called birds. Almost all influenza is a form of "Avian
Flu." A few influenza forms come from other dinosaur-like life forms, the
modern reptiles, but these are usually classified as very rare tropical
diseases, since that is where most reptiles live.
doctors in the early 1900's didn't know about that, and even today few
if any doctors are aware that fever is not a symptom of disease, but is
the primary and only way for the human body to stop viral infections. If
you stop or reduce the fever, viruses are allowed to divide and spread
uncontrolled throughout the body. I have already described this process
in detail in my articles posted in the Brother Jonathan Gazette in 2003,
so I won't go into detail here. Do a search on "SARS" on the Gazette and
you'll find the articles. Normally the progress of a flu is that
a virus enters the mucous membrane lining of the lungs, enters cells, then
makes many copies of itself, which causes the cell to expand to such an
degree that it bursts open. The new viruses then cloak themselves with
a coating taken from the old damaged cell wall, thus hiding themselves
from the human body's own T-cell antibody immune defense system. To the
body's immune system the new viruses simply appear to be pieces of the
body's own lung tissue.
creating a fever, the viral infection is slowed down sufficiently so that
the body's T cells can find the swollen infected lung cells, surround them
and metabolize (literally eat) the damaged cell with strong acids which
also breaks down the RNA viruses into basic amino acids. This effectively
"kills" the viruses so that they can't reproduce. But viruses are not living
things, and you can't kill something that's not alive. All the body can
do is destroy or dissolve the RNA amino acid chain which makes up the virus.
knowing this, most doctors treat the flu with aspirin or fever reducers,
as a palliative treatment to ease the aches, pains, and delerium fever
effects. The result is that within hours, the fever goes down and the patient
feels much better. What neither the patient nor the doctor knows is that
with only a normal 98.6F body temperature, the viruses are allowed to reproduce
unchecked. Within 72 hours, the viruses have grown from one or two virus
bodies to millions or billions. The body is now completely overwhelmed.
But while taking aspirin or cold medications, there are no symptoms or
warnings of what is yet to come.
a last resort the body tries to quickly flush the infection of billions
of viruses from the lungs with massive amounts of T-cells, and fluid in
the lungs to "cough out" the virus. This is called viral pneumonia. Soon
within hours the patient is in the hospital. The doctors try to treat the
now 105 degree fever with more anti-febril aspirins, or related medications
to "treat the fever." Then within another 24 hours the patient, suffocating
and gasping for breath, is dead.
should note that the original infection did cause a mild fever, aches and
pains, which the patient "self-medicated" with over-the-counter products.
For the next several days, the patient seemed to have no symptoms, but
was actually growing billions of copies of influenza virus in his lungs.
Then days later, the patient and doctor seem to see a sudden rapid case
of viral flu infection that is now overwhelming the body. Is that what
really happened? What caused the patient's death? Was it the original
flu virus, or was it the use of Aspirin to lower the flu fever which then
shutdown the patient's own immune system response? Obviously, the latter.
So how did this cause the massive rapid spread of the 1918 Flu?
Bayer court case had just been settled, and many companies other than Bayer,
could now legally market aspirin to treat colds and fever. But then "The
Great War to End all War" was on, and most aspirin products were going
directly to the front lines in France to treat the soldiers in the diseased
hell hole trenches of WWI.
World War I medics knew that aspirin could quickly reduce a fever. If a
soldier had a fever, the docs gave aspirin. Magically the fever went down,
the soldier felt better and quickly went back to the fighting. Then three
days later, the same soldier was back, now with severe pneumonia and died
doctors then made the connection between aspirin and pneumonia death, since
the trenches were filled with many other seemingly related diseases such
as diphtheria or tuberculosis. Death and dying on the front line was common,
so no investigation was done. Aspirin seemed to be a god-send since it
allowed sick soldiers to swiftly get right back into the fighting.
the Armistice of November 11, 1918 the fighting stopped and the soldiers
went home. The soldiers around the world announced the good news to their
families back home. Most of the low-ranked doughboys had to wait till they
got back to their homebase in Kansas, or wherever, to call home. They couldn't
afford the costly trans-Atlantic deep sea cable phone rates. But when the
troop arrived in Kansas, the call from sergeant Tom was something like:
"Hey mom, I'm coming home. I'll see yu and dad next Tuesday in Chattanooga.
How's everybody? Oh, Aunt Esther has a fever? Hey tell her to take some
aspirin. Yeah, that stuff in the medicine cabinet for treatin' the aches
and pains. Tell Esther, we used it in France. Works right away and the
fever is gone. OK see yu Tuesday...."
what does Esther do? She tries the aspirin, but the old Bayer label only
says its for "aches and pains" and says nothing about fevers. She takes
it and magically the fever is gone, and she feels much better, almost cured.
She's so much better, she gets out the horse and buggy to go see her sister,
Lucy in Mt Carmel, where Lucy and the kids are down with the fever. Mt.
Carmel has no telephones and even no roads, only the buggy path to reach
the outside world. But within hours of sergeant Tom's phone call home,
by word of mouth, everybody in rural Mt. Carmel is now taking aspirin to
treat fevers. Since the new information came from a soldier, from the US
Army and the government, it must be true!
a week of the 1918 Armistice, by newfangled telephone, trans-oceanic telephone
cables, and even the experimental ship-to-shore shortwave radios using
Morse code, the message was flashed around the world -- "Have a fever?
Take Aspirin. It worked in France, it'll work for you." That message spread
at nearly the speed of light over millions of telephone lines all around
the world. The news of the "miracle cure" even spread by word of mouth
within a day or so, even to places with no phones nor roads. Mysteriously,
a week later, doctors round the world now had hundreds of sick and dying
patients. Nobody could figure out why. The patients themselves never reported
that just the week before they did have a mild fever. But it was so mild
that when they took some aspirin, it simply went away. Nobody made the
connection. The doctors only saw, by November 24, 1918 thousands of very
sick patients with high fevers, lungs filled with fluid, and swift overnight
medical profession had never seen anything like it before, nor since. It
seemed to occur simultaneously all around the world and even reaching into
such out of the way places like Mt. Carmel with no telephones nor roads.
How could such a massive fast-spreading killer disease exist? It didn't.
wasn't a disease. It was a new use for an old home folk remedy which everybody
already had in their medicine cabinet, Bayer Aspirin to reduce fever.
medical profession, at a complete loss to explain it, simply called it
the "Spanish Flu" or the "1918 Flu" or many similar names. It was a mystery
with no known source, so it was assigned many place names. So far, nobody
has been able to prove any single pathogen was responsible. And even if
they did, they still can't explain how it seemed to spread world-wide at
almost the speed of light, clear around the world within a week.
this day there is no explanation. But, now you know. The "disease" was
not a single pathogen, but many of the hundreds of similar types of flu
which are always existing at any time around the world. What was different
in November 1918 was the many hundreds of thousands of almost simultaneous
phone calls from the millions of returning sergeant Toms saying, "...tell
Aunt Esther to take the aspirin. It worked in France. It'll work for her..."
Nobody traced the spread of the 1918 Flu to sergeant Tom. Nobody made the
very same source of disease still exists today. What is different today
is that cold and flu products are sold and used all year long. This results
in an estimated one million deaths from mysterious viral pneumonia reported
every year, but also all around the year. In 1918, the new use of aspirin
for treating colds and flu all started at the same time in November, thus
creating the false impression of a sudden massive onset of a new disease.
Even today SARS is not a disease. It is the improper use of a brand new
high-tech flu fighter called Tamiflu. The FDA approved the use of Tamiflu
several years ago. In 2003 it began to be used world-wide. But how is it
millions of people around the world still self-treat their own colds and
flu with over-the-counter meds containing aspirin. Those are the most commonly
sold medications in the world. The patient's mild fever quickly goes away.
They forget about ever having felt sick. Then several days later the patient
sees the doctor and now has a high fever, bad cough and fluid-filled lungs.
The doctor, using the new CDC and WHO guidelines, treats the hospitalized
"flu" patient with the new high-tech Tamiflu. But how often and at what
doctors do what they've always done for the past 100 years. Tell the nurse
to stick a thermometer in the patient's mouth, increase the Tamiflu dosage
by 10cc's every hour until the fever starts to drop. Then maintain that
dosage level until the patient dies. Then blame the death on some new highly
contagious lethal virus. Nothing new here. It's the same old story, since
1918. The only thing different is that they give it a new name like SARS,
or Bird Flu or whatever sounds nifty and high-tech. Even today, each year
about one million people world-wide die from the very same "disease" which
first appeared in the fall of 1918. Has medicine, in the last 100 years,
turned this "contagion" from Pandemic by Phone, into Illness by Internet?
Is it the rapid and continuous spread of misinformation that is still killing
now, I have given you enough information that you are ready for Part Two.
Coming next is a review of the curious scientific evidence, medical records
and the biochemistry proof behind the Case of Murder in the Medicine Cabinet.
This information was received
in an email - I have no idea where part two is, sorry. I thought
this was interesting enough to post on my website in the Healthy Body section.
You can believe it or not, but as for me, I'm going to careful about taking
any fever reducer pill when I'm sick. ~Brenda
