There is now another Ebola breakout occurring in Africa, this time in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). This is following the 2014 outbreak in Sierra Leone, which prompted pharmaceutical companies to begin development of an Ebola vaccine. The 2014 outbreak in Sierra Leone is reported to have claimed 11,000 lives. The World Health Organization (WHO) is reporting that the "yet-to-be-licensed rVSV-ZEBOV Ebola vaccine" will be distributed in the DRC. The vaccines are donated by Merck, while GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance funded primarily by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is contributing $1 million towards operational costs. In 2014, American doctors Robert Rowen and Howard Robins went into the Sierra Leone heart of darkness with donated ozone generators and facilitating apparatus to treat those infected with the inexpensive, safe, and highly effective, but not FDA approved, ozone therapy (OT). The doctors' humanitarian effort was done at their cost and time with donated equipment. They gathered some local medical practitioners and began training them with application of the procedures among Ebola victims in their region. Those treated with ozone therapy recovered. One who insisted on using the experimental Zmapp drug died quickly. After a short time in Sierra Leon, the doctors were forced to stop. Ozone therapy was banned. But it wasn’t just a ban. Doctors Rowen and Robins were attacked by Sierra Leone media as Americans “experimenting” medically on African Ebola victims and told to go home and experiment on Americans. After the initial ban was enforced, Rowen wasn’t even allowed to administer ozone therapy to one of the locals who had been trained to deliver it to others in his community. That person died an agonizing death over the next week.
Helping Traditions helped a Liberian ministry start a native coconut oil distribution program to families in Liberia who have been affected by the Ebola crisis in late 2014. Coconut palm trees are native to the coastal areas of Liberia, so Mission Bethel Ministries was able to visit coconut producing areas in Liberia in 2014 and make contact with small-scale coconut oil producers to supply traditional coconut oil. Research has shown that the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil are powerful germ fighters, particularly against viruses where pharmaceutical products typically fail. While there is no research yet showing that coconut oil is effective against the Ebola virus, coconut oil is a powerful immune builder with no side effects. Since coconuts and coconut oil are native to Liberia, it made sense to invest in a coconut oil distribution program in Ebola affected areas. Learn how you can help support this project!
Dr. Robert Rowen, a leading expert on oxidative therapy, received an invitation by the President of Sierra Leone to bring his team there to teach health care workers how to treat Ebola using ozone therapy. After getting local doctors and the president himself to agree to using ozone therapy, Paolo Conte, the defense minister of Sierra Leone and newly appointed Ebola czar, prevented them from administering the treatment. However, they permitted the experimental drug ZMapp to be used on patients and they're also going to allow the use of Amiodarone—a highly toxic drug that, according to Dr. Rowen, has been proven ineffective. In the meantime, while ozone therapy is withheld from Ebola patients, two doctors who received ozone therapy treatment and training contacted Ebola, and recovered immediately.
The US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is providing a gift to manufacturers of prospective vaccines meant to protect patients against the Ebola virus: Protection from legal liability. In an announcement in the 9 December 2014 edition of the Federal Register, DHHS said it was issuing a new declaration that would "provide liability protection for activities related to Ebola virus disease vaccines consistent with the terms of the declaration."
The current dearth of treatment options for Ebola is not from a lack of options, but from a zealous protection of current medical monopolies together with an overabundance of red tape. In a related article, we discussed government hostility to natural remedies that are both cheap, effective, and more readily available. In this article, we’ll look at the FDA roadblocks to more conventional treatments. The FDA is paid by drug companies and is generally friendly to them. Even so, getting a new drug or device approved is a torturous and insanely expensive process. The minimum cost these days is several hundred million dollars spent over many years. The average cost is in the billions. Technology like Nanobiosym’s “iPhone-sized device,” which can be used to detect Ebola and other diseases in less than an hour, is being delayed by needless FDA red tape. The Dallas hospital that treated three patients with Ebola had a similar device, one that could detect Ebola with high degree of confidence within a few minutes, but were prevented from using it because of FDA regulations.
So here is what inquiring minds want to know: Why did U.S. health officials in Atlanta and on the ground in Africa ignore the exploding Ebola epidemic last spring? Why did U.S. government officials fly American aid workers infected with Ebola to the U.S. rather than treating them with experimental drugs at hospitals in Africa? Why did the U.S. government press the United Nations to adopt a resolution calling for no restrictions on international travel from Liberia and other Ebola-stricken countries? Why did the Centers for Disease Control, supposedly the world’s leading infection control agency, fail to immediately assist Texas health officials when the first case of Ebola was diagnosed on US soil to guarantee that, at a minimum, the kind of infection control measures used in most nursing homes in America would be carried out? Why has the Director of the CDC repeatedly stated that the only way a person can transmit Ebola is if they have a fever and said that people cannot get Ebola unless they have direct contact with the body fluids of an infected person - but that under no circumstances is Ebola airborne - when he knows, or should know, those statements could be false? And why are experimental Ebola vaccines being fast tracked into human trials and promoted as the final solution rather than ramping up testing and production of the experimental ZMapp drug that has already saved the lives of several Ebola infected Americans? A logical conclusion is that some people in industry, government and the World Health Organization did not want the Ebola outbreak to be confined to several nations in Africa because that would fail to create a lucrative global market for mandated use of fast tracked Ebola vaccines by every one of the seven billion human beings living on this planet.
Read this before you consider purchasing a hazmat suit to protect yourself from Ebola! Are we facing an Ebola pandemic that will kill millions, or is this just a marketing plan of the pharmaceutical industry to sell more drugs and vaccines? Is the current strain of the Ebola virus a secret creation of pharmaceutical company scientists, biological warfare researchers, or the fruit of Monsanto’s product development team? Was Ebola created, or did it just accidentally spill over into humans from an animal host such as African fruit bats? Is the US government intentionally not taking strong action to prevent Ebola from spreading or is there really minimal risk to Americans? Are there groups that want to decrease the world population through spreading contagious diseases such as Ebola, or is this just another imaginary plan that is being reported by certain conspiracy theory groups? Is the Ebola virus a local epidemic, a global pandemic, or a hoax? Is life in America as we have known it about to collapse into chaos and martial law, or will we be safe and secure once we take the Ebola vaccine? Will more people die from the Ebola vaccine than would have died from the disease itself? All these questions have been circulating through the media over the last few months. The situation with Ebola is certainly a complex muddle of contradictory facts, opposing interpretations, and political intrigue. It reminds me very much of the 1976 Swine flu hoax -- commonly called the swine flu fiasco or the swine flu debacle. More:
With the Ebola virus in the news, I thought it might be time to comment on what steps you can take to prevent becoming ill. Keep in mind that conventional medicine has no effective treatments for the Ebola virus. Due to a slow international response, Ebola has spread rapidly. It is a scary infection as the death rate is very high—from 50-90%. Initially, the Ebola infection can mimic the symptoms from the flu or other upper respiratory infection. However, as it progresses, it can lead to very severe muscle aches, liver and kidney failure along with bleeding out of various areas of the body. Needless to say, Ebola is something to be taken very seriously. As I previously stated, there is no conventional treatment for the Ebola virus. That does not mean that you are powerless to do anything to combat it. There are many effective natural anti-viral therapies that may prove effective against Ebola. It would be nice if the Powers-That-Be would begin testing these therapies. But, that would make common sense. Instead the Powers-That-Be are actively discouraging the use of alternative therapies even though they have nothing to offer. It is a sad situation. Keep in mind that Ebola, like any viral infection, can only be cured by a strong immune system. We are designed with a powerful immune system that should mount a response to an infectious agent. However, the immune system can only mount a vigorous defense if it has the raw materials available to it. For over 20 years, I have been checking every patient for their nutrient status. Unfortunately, most are deficient in the basic raw materials that the immune system needs to function optimally. I say, if you become ill with a viral illness, do the basics to help optimize your immune system. I will show you the four most important items you can use to aid your immune system to fight any illness.
This editorial written by Dr. Cyril Broderick, a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry, was published by Liberia's largest newspaper as headline news. He claims that Ebola is a genetically modified organism (GMO) introduced by western medicine and possibly a result of military research. The western pro-pharma media has chided Dr. Broderick, saying that such an inflammatory piece of writing is "irresponsible" since so many Africans are already distrustful of western medicine. They see western medicine as the answer to Africa's deadly diseases such as Ebola, while Dr. Borderick sees it as the cause. Dr. Broderick states "African people are not ignorant and gullible, as is being implicated." Whether right or wrong, we feel African leaders have a voice in this matter, and should not be censored.
As the world starts looking to invest millions of dollars for ebola drugs, the Catch-22 of drug economics (no one will spend the exorbitant sums needed to run clinical trials if the product can’t be patented and turned into a huge money-maker) practically ensures that natural treatments will be ignored. But could some of our oldest natural antivirals be used at least to inhibit the transfer of the virus—or even cure it? Silver has also showed great promise as an antiviral, in both attacking the virus and in inhibiting transmission. So far, silver has been tested on HIV and herpes. Silver has also been used to clear HPV warts; inhibit the replication of the hepatitis B virus; kill the H1N1 virus; fight ocular infection; and kill the tacaribe virus, which also causes hemorrhagic fever, as well as the bacteriophage viral strain. Since disinfecting contaminated environments is the most effective method of halting Ebola’s spread, silver could be a most potent weapon in the battle. But we don’t see the WHO getting behind anything natural, whether effective or not.
