THE FLU SEASON HAS BEGUN: LEARN WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
Every year for centuries the late fall and early winter begins the seasonal influenza season.
Each year for decades, there are between 20 and 50 million cases of influenza illness in the U.S. alone.
The lone exception was late 2020 and early 2021 when very few flu cases were reported as shown above. Never in history has this happened.
We now know that typical influenza cases were classified as COVID-19 cases. With these yearly cases, between 20,000 and 60,000 deaths occur each year in the U.S. from influenza illness. These hospitalizations and deaths occur even when 50-65% of the U.S. population receives the annual flu vaccine.
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is another airborne respiratory virus that affects primarly the very young and very old during the same season as flu. Each year in the United States, RSV leads, on average, to approximately 2.1 million outpatient visits among children younger than 5 years old, 58,000 hospitalizations among children younger than 5 years old, 177,000 hospitalizations among adults 65 years and older and 14,000 deaths among adults 65 years and older.
The number of positive RSV tests decreased by 97.4%, from an average of 21,449 positive tests each season from 2017-2020 to 560 for the 2020-2021 season.
RSV pneumonia is responsible for an average of 80,000 pediatric hospitalizations and 500 deaths every year. The mortality rate depends on the patient’s immunologic status. In healthy children, the reported mortality rate is 0.5-1.7% but is higher in immunosuppressed patients (< 80-100% in untreated HSCT recipients vs 22% in treated control subjects).
In adults, RSV pneumonia is associated with a mortality rate ranging from 11-78%, depending on the severity of underlying immune suppression. In long-term care facilities, 5-27% of respiratory tract infections have been estimated to be caused by RSV, 10% of which will develop into pneumonia and 1-5% of which will be fatal. These numbers are staggering and there is no vaccine available for RSV despite years of research.
Adding COVID-19 to the Mix
We have dealt with these statistics for decades but yet there has never been declared a medical emergency nor a pandemic from these seasonal respiratory viruses.
COVID-19 is a respiratory virus similar to RSV and the flu. The modes of transmission are the same and the same patients at risk of illness and death from COVID are the same population that is at greatest risk of illness and death from RSV and the flu.
The difference now that it is has become clear, is that COVID-19 is a man made virus using gain of function technology in a research lab in Wuhan. Therefore it is not immediately clear on the mutability of the virus or how and if it behaves differently than a naturally occuring virus.
Despite all the unknowns about COVID-19, gene sequence was quickly developed against a single spike protein on the virus and called a vaccine, then granted emergency use authorization without any real long term safety and efficacy testing in humans.
Data from the vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS) has revealed an exponential increase in deaths and adverse events since the COVID-19 vaccines have been administered. See graph below.
Should We Vaccinate Children Against COVID-19?
These data reveal that the mRNA vaccine is not safe and now with the increasing number of breakthrough COVID cases in fully vaccinated patients, we know it is not effective in preventing infection, transmission or illness from COVID. When there is no benefit and extreme risk, the decision should be obvious for anyone considering the COVID vaccine.
What about our kids?
The most terrifying event I’ve witnessed in my lifetime in science is the approval and recommendation to vaccinate our kids beginning at 5 years of age with an experimental gene therapy now proven to cause harm while providing zero protection from infection.
I can only pray for the souls of parents who subject their kids to the vaccine when there is no need, no justification and documented harm and death.
As revealed above, the mortality or death rate in kids from RSV is approaching 2%. Of the 73 million children in the U.S. only 700 have died from COVID or roughly 0.0001% mortality. So why the need to vaccinate? Parents, please consider these facts.
We have accepted a consistent number of seasonal flu and RSV cases and deaths every year for centuries without shutdowns, lockdown, mandates, isolation and fear mongering by the media, but we have also learned what protects us from illness from these viruses.
How Can We Prevent Illness from Any Respiratory Virus? Nitric Oxide Is the Key
We can’t prevent exposure, but we can prevent illness and death from any respiratory virus including COVID-19.
Our immune system is designed to recognize and combat any foreign invader including bacteria and viruses. Well vascularized tissues are resistant to infections, whereas poorly vascularized tissues are prone to infection.
Therefore if you have poor blood flow and circulation, you are prone to infections. Nitric oxide controls vascularity, blood flow and circulation to every cell in the body. Without nitric oxide, you become susceptible to infection and illness from infection.
Nitric oxide prevents replication of many viruses including flu, RSV and COVID. If you can’t make nitric oxide, then these viruses quickly replicate, propogate and cause you to get sick from infection.
This is obvious in patients at highest risk of infection, hospitalization and death from flu, RSV and COVID. It is those patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, pulmonary disease that are at highest risk. All of these underlying co-morbities are caused by a lack of nitric production.
How Can We Improve Nitric Oxide Production
So the fundamental question you should be asking yourself is how do I improve my nitric oxide production? Great question. You only have to do two simple things:
1. Stop doing the things that disrupt nitric oxide production
a. Stop using mouthwash. Mouthwash kills essential bacteria that help produce nitric oxide
b. Stop using antacids, specifically proton pump inhibitors. Antacids inhibit NO production
c. Stop eating high carbohydrate and highly processed junk food. High glucose causes glycation of the enzyme that makes nitric oxide and stops it from working.
d. Stop using fluoride toothpaste and drinking fluorinated water. Fluoride is a neurotoxin and stringent antiseptic that kills the good NO producing bacteria.
e. Stop using antiseptic hand lotions that kill ammonia oxidizing bacteria on our skin that generate nitric oxide
2. Start doing things that promote or restore nitric oxide production
a. Eat a healthy balanced diet with lots of green vegetables that contain nitrate
b. Get plenty of moderate physical exercise. Exercise increases NO production
c. Sit in an infrared sauna as often as you can. The heat from sauna inactivates many viruses and also releases nitric oxide
d. Consider taking a safe and effective nitric oxide supplement that can improve your nitric oxide levels.
These are very simple, inexpensive and effective strategies to keep you safe and healthy from any seasonal respiratory virus like flu, RSV and COVID.
There is no need to isolate, no need to vaccinate and no need to fear.
If you are overweight, lose weight. If you smoke, stop smoking. If you don’t exercise, start.
It is also important to titrate up your Vitamin D, Vitamin C and zinc levels as these have shown to be important in preventing virus infection.
Just as every year for the past 100 years, we go into November knowing it is flu season and knowing a certain number of people will get sick and die from the flu but the vast majority don’t get sick and we know why.
Now, we just have to deal with a man-made respiratory virus, COVID-19, but the same rules apply. We have been misinformed, mislead and lied to by the so-called experts and the media. Enough is enough. The truth is out there, the truth is revealing itself and the truth will set us all free.
