"Sunlight may be the best antifungal, antibiotic and antiseptic." - Marc Sorenson, EdD.


Every bacteria has a corresponding virus (phage) that will destroy it.


Anyone with an antibiotic-resistant bacterial infection should consider going to the Tbilisi Institute (1, 2, 3) for phage therapy. See for "phage therapy" videos.


Any bacterial overgrowth can be seen as a deficiency of phages.


There is little profit for pharmaceutical companies in non-patentable phage therapy. Every government should ensure that appropriate phage therapy is available to the population.

Malaria may also be killed by wormwood (Artemisia annua), known as Qing hao in Chinese medicine.


Sodium chlorite (also known as Miracle Mineral Supplement) is reported to destroy bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites such as malaria. Read about it 1, 2 and watch the DVD.


Sodium chlorite is reported to break up biofilms throughout the body, thereby exposing pathogens hiding beneath biofilm to attack from the immune system.


Our preference is to take a few drops of sodium chlorite with water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. The taste is OK and stomach acid will activate it.

Question: "Can immunization against contagious diseases be set up in any other manner than by inoculations?"

Answer: "If an alkalinity is maintained in the system - especially with the lettuce, carrots and celery, these in the blood supply will maintain such a condition as to immunize a person. In an alkaline system there is less effect of cold and congestion." - Edgar Cayce July 12, 1935.


"There is no known disease causing organism or degenerative disease that can continue to reproduce or create degeneration in an alkaline, oxygenized environment." - Dr. Otto Warburg


"If our internal environment was changed from an acidic oxygen deprived environment to an alkaline environment full of oxygen, viruses, bacteria and fungus cannot live." - Dr. Otto Warburg


"The microbe is nothing. The terrain is everything." - Claude Bernard (1813-1878)


According to Claude Bernard, healthy terrain involves four factors:
1. alkalinity
2. negative electrical charge
3. nutrition
4. toxins 


"Disease begins when our alkaline tissues turn acidic and when our negative energy charge turns positive." - Dr. Robert Young

Benjamin Fulford (Feb. 3, 2020) writes that the Coronavirus is "designed to attach to lung receptors that are five times more common in Asian males than in African or Indo-European males. Asian females also have less than half the amount of these receptors than Asian males." 1


If true, then the Coronavirus may be a deliberate attack on the Chinese people. Their economy is also under attack due to the quarantines and withdrawal of foreigners. Foreign businesses may now regard China as a less secure part of their supply chain. 1


If the above is true, then who could blame China if it designed a virus that targets other races?


This is biological warfare, and a strong immune system is our best answer for individual survival.




Most drugs and antibiotics are manufactured in China, and Chinese manufacturing is shutting down due to the Coronavirus.

Bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa/parasites can inhabit your body without causing acute infectious disease. However, they can cause problems for you:


- stealth infections may be controlled by your immune system until for some reason your immune system is weakened, then they can multiply uncontrollably;


- even when their extent is limited by your immune system, ongoing stealth infections are producing waste products that burden your body, while consuming nutrients that your body could use. Some of these waste products from infections are extremely toxic to the body (endotoxins, exotoxins, mycotoxins);


- stealth infections may damage your cells, tissues and organs resulting in long-term degenerative conditions, plus some of these damaged organs may be critical to your fight with cancer;


- stealth infections are a constant drain on your immune system resources. These are resources you need to fight cancer;


- some infections directly cause cancer. All infections cause inflammation, and chronic inflammation is associated with cancer and many other diseases.


Reducing these infections by alkalinity, strengthening your immune system, iodine, hyperthermia, exercise, oxygen, meditation, electromedicine, glyconutrients, oil pulling and other means can help alkalize and reduce the toxicity of your body, thereby reducing your risk of cancer. Some of these infections can be treated successfully by your doctor, some cannot. Using an antibiotic to remove an infection does nothing to prevent future infections. An ongoing program of personal hygiene and health maintenance must include ways to prevent, control and remove infections.


There are about two thousand different organisms that commonly make their home in and on the human body. Of the one hundred trillion cells in your body, 90% are these other organisms, and only 10% is "you". Search the Internet for "human microbiome" and "human microbiome project" for more information. Some of these organisms are potentially harmful, some are beneficial, and most are neutral. The populations of these different organisms will fluctuate depending on whether or not the environment provided by your body's interior and exterior is favorable to their growth. Factors influencing this include nutrients, pH, temperature, oxygen level, competing populations, and the strength of your immune system. Keeping your microbiome happy and healthy is just as important as keeping your own cells happy and healthy, because your microbiome is part of you.


"There's just no question that improving your innate immune system—through reducing sugar and processed foods in your diet, improving your gut flora, leading a healthy lifestyle, and having adequate vitamin D levels, ideally through sensible sun exposure,—will provide a far more effective immune response and virtually eliminate any risk of developing a life threatening infection." - Dr. Mercola


Undigested carbohydrates in your digestive system will feed both bacteria and fungi.  As we have noted elsewhere, the saliva enzyme that digests carbohydrates works best in an alkaline media and is destroyed by mild acid. Therefore, if the saliva is acidic then presumably an abundance of undigested carbohydrates will pass through your digestive system. Not only will this food fail to nourish you, but it will instead feed and promote expansion of bacterial and fungal populations within your body.


Some bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori eat H+ ions. Any part of your body that is or becomes acidic will provide a home for them. Cancer is also associated with an acidic environment.


Bacteria called "mycobacteria" bridge the gap between bacteria and fungi. "Myco" is Greek for "fungus". Examples of mycobacteria include Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the cause of tuberculosis), Mycobacterium paratuberculosis (associated with Crohn's disease), and Mycobacterium leprae (the cause of leprosy). There are hundreds of different mycobacteria. Mycobacteria typically live in water, including tap water treated with chlorine or ozone. They can grow inside your hot water tank if the temperature is set below 140°F. They can even grow inside your water filter. Mycobacteria can be killed by iodine 1, 2.


Iodine water purification:


Iodine Preparations
Preparation Iodine Amount/Liter
Iodine Topical Solution 2% 8 drops
Iodine Tincture 2% 8 drops
Lugol's Solution 5% 4 drops
Povidone-Iodine (Betadine®) 10% 4 drops
Tetraglycine hydroperiodide
(Globaline®, Potable Aqua®, EDWGT®)
8 mg 1 tablet

Disinfecting Contact Times
  5°C 15°C
Clear 30 min 15 min
Cloudy 60 min 30 min


The website goes on to say "if you want better flavor halve the dose and double the contact time." One approach to safe drinking water in the home would be to filter the water and then add iodine. You might use 5 gallon / 19 liter plastic water containers filled with reverse osmosis filtered water. To this water add one or two drops of Lugol's iodine per liter. Given the length of time the water sits in the container before being used, this should produce clean water free of mycobacteria.


All bacteria, including mycobacteria and drug-resistant bacteria, can also be destroyed by bacteria-eating viruses called bacteriophages. Phage therapy was developed in the former Soviet Union prior to the discovery of antibiotics 1, 2. Phage therapy is more specific than antibiotics because each bacteria will have a specific virus (phage) that eats it. This means that treatment with a bacteriophage will not harm your intestinal flora.


Antibiotics will wipe out your intestinal flora. A population of beneficial bacteria in your gut is essential for your health. These beneficial bacteria help digest your food, produce vitamins and other factors important to your health, and help control the populations of unhealthy bacteria and fungi by competing for food and space. When antibiotics wipe out your intestinal flora, the stage is set for a partial or complete takeover by exploding populations of unhealthy bacteria and fungi.


Due to the proximity of the anus to the vagina, the bacterial population of the vagina reflects the population of the intestines. Prior to birth, the infant gut is sterile. The infant gut is first populated by the bacteria and fungi to which the infant is exposed within the birth canal during delivery. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride 1, 2, 3 suggests that since the development of antibiotics during World War ll, each new human generation has inherited from the mother an increasingly unhealthy gut flora due to widespread use of antibiotics. She has developed the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet that works in stages to heal the gut lining and restore a healthy gut population. Kefir is better than yoghurt as a source of healthy intestinal bacteria. Refrigerated sauerkraut is also a good source of friendly bacteria for the gut.


Babies born via cesarian section miss out on the initial seeding of their gut that vaginally born babies receive. Caesarian section vaginal swab at birth 1, 2, 3. Breast feeding makes a difference. Breast milk contains oligosaccharides that are prebiotics for certain healthy species of intestinal bacteria. Breast milk may also be a source of probiotic bacteria for the infant. 


The mouth is home to a great number of bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa as well as heavy metals used in dental amalgam (Fife pages 31 - 63). Breaks in the skin of the gum, tooth decay and root canals give direct access to the bloodstream. By these means, the mouth becomes an ongoing source of infections and toxic by-products that travel around the body. Diseases and health problems that may be associated with oral infections include: adverse pregnancy outcomes, Alzheimer's disease, appendicitis, arthritis, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), bladder infections, brain infections, bronchitis, cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), chronic low back pain, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma), colitis, dementia, dermatitis, diabetes, diarrhea, endocarditis (infection of the heart lining and heart valves), gastritis, heart disease, hemophilia, hormonal imbalances, hypertension, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, infection (jawbone, sinuses, eyes, head, neck), kidney disease, liver disease, Lou Gehrig's Disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), lung infections, migraines, multiple sclerosis, myositis (muscle inflammation), neuritis (inflammation of peripheral nerves), osteomyelitis, osteoporosis, ovarian diseases, Parkinson's disease, pharyngitis, phlebitis, pleuritis, pneumonia, rheumatism, senility, shingles, stomach ulcers, and strokes.


Sometimes the oral infection travels to a weak area in the body, and sometimes the infection moves to a favorite area. The same bacteria (Streptococcus sanguis) that forms dental plaque also forms arterial plaque. Oral infections that cause pneumonia include Streptococcus pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae, mycoplasma, and Neisseria. Chlamydia pneumoniae is also associated with asthma. Oral infections that travel down the digestive tract include E. Coli, Candida albicans (single-celled fungus or yeast), H. pylori (responsible for stomach ulcers), streptococci and Wolinella succinogenes (associated with Irritable Bowel Diseases such as ulcerative colitis). To remove oral infections and to maintain a healthy mouth Dr. Fife recommends daily "oil pulling" with coconut oil. We prefer oil pulling with flax oil.


The impact of oral infections on the rest of the body depends on the strength of the immune system. A strong immune system can neutralize these infections as they enter the blood and lymph. Of course, the reverse is also true. Oral infections relentlessly weaken the immune system and open the way for other diseases, including cancer.



Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is antiviral, antitoxin and antihistamine. Vitamin C is also effective against some bacteria and is an antioxidant. Most species of plants and animals use enzymes to manufacture vitamin C from simple sugars within their own body. However, in the long course of evolution, the gene responsible for vitamin C production became non-functional in certain species. This is why guinea pigs, primates and humans lack the enzyme that is needed for the last step in vitamin C production. As a consequence, for these species vitamin C is an essential nutrient in the diet. 


The appropriate dose of vitamin C is "enough C to be symptom free, whatever that amount may be." Based on observed vitamin C production in other species, humans require 2 to 20 grams of vitamin C every day. However, if the body is sick then more is needed and bowel tolerance will be greater. To treat infections, doctors have given 50 to 500 grams daily intravenously. Obviously, prevention of infection by taking relatively small doses of vitamin C is better than getting sick and needing a cure. It is simply a fact of human life that vitamin C is a necessary part of the daily diet.

Do-it-yourself Vitamin C Urine Test


There is a "dipstick" urine test for vitamin C called VitaChek-C. VitaChek-C is manufactured by Teco Diagnostics, Anaheim, CA, and sold by various retailers. Search for a supplier of VitaChek-C on the Internet.


The theory is that if tissues are saturated with vitamin C, then larger amounts of vitamin C will be excreted in the urine. Therefore, a measurement of 50 mg/dL is not so good as 100 mg/dL. If the strip stays green then you are deficient. Bright yellow is good. Try to maintain this level every day and night for the remainder of your life.







There is a form of vitamin C called BioEn'R-G'y C that is designed to permit consumption of megadoses of vitamin C with minimal digestive upset (gas, diarrhea).

- A Bright Spot for a Brighter Future


A bottle of BioEn'R-G'y C contains 30 servings. A serving is a "slightly rounded teaspoon" which is 6.6 grams, and contains 4 grams of vitamin C. A regular adult dose is 1 to 4 teaspoons daily. However, to restore health one teaspoon may be consumed hourly.






Nine minute video of Dr. Garry Gordon discussing BioEn'R-G'y C and VitaChek-C.


We suggest starting with VitaChek-C and whatever vitamin C you have available. Perhaps you are already taking enough vitamin C each day to turn the VitaChek-C yellow. If not, perhaps taking a little more vitamin C each day is all you need.


If you are unable to get yellow test results with your regular vitamin C here are some options you can try.


Some people find that time release vitamin C taken through the day builds up a good stable level in the blood.


If you experience digestive difficulties, buffered vitamin C may be more comfortable (potassium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate, sodium ascorbate).


If you are still unable to get yellow test results it may be because your body needs very large amounts. Ordinarily you might go to the doctor for intravenous vitamin C. However, now you have two less expensive options you can do at home - BioEn'R-G'y C and liposomal vitamin C. Dr. Thomas Levy recommends that you take advantage of the different forms of vitamin C because they go different places in the body and do different things. BioEn'R-G'y C tends to stay in the blood while liposomal vitamin C is quickly absorbed by cells.


Due to better absorption, liposomal vitamin C can deliver twice as much vitamin C to the blood compared to regular vitamin C. Read about liposomal vitamin C on the Internet. Read how to make your own pseudo-liposomal vitamin C on the Internet and watch videos at 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.  Dr. Levy suggests in the following article that these home-made versions are emulsified vitamin C, which has its own advantages and is different from liposomal vitamin C.


Exposing the truth about liposomal nutrients by Dr. Thomas Levy. There are many YouTube videos of Dr. Levy. Highly recommended. 





Vitamin D is antiviral and antibacterial. The human body can manufacture vitamin D when the ultra violet (UVB) rays of sunlight shine on the skin. The best vitamin D is made by your own body. However, due to lack of sunlight in winter, wearing clothes, living and working indoors, and travelling in enclosed vehicles virtually the entire population is deficient in vitamin D. The necessary response includes exposing more of the body to sunlight during the warmer months of the year, purchasing and using a UVB lamp during the cooler months of the year, and supplementing the diet with vitamin D. Are you getting enough vitamin D? There are now 25-hydroxy vitamin D home test kits 1, 2 or you can get this test through a doctor. Ask for the 25 hydroxy vitamin D test as part of your annual physical, and then ask for a photocopy of all your lab results that you can study at home and keep in your own medical file.


With adequate sunshine, the skin can produce 10,000 to 20,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily. This seems to be what the body requires. Avoiding sunshine creates a vitamin D deficit that may require very large doses to correct.


Vitamin D2 in large doses can cause side effects such as hypercalcemia, but D3 taken in large doses seems to be free of side effects. Orthomolecular physicians have given therapeutic daily doses of 50,000 to 300,000 IU of vitamin D3 without harmful side effects (Hoffer & Saul, page 140).



Vitamin D Council recommended amounts


Based on the body's indicated daily vitamin D usage, the Vitamin D Council recommends the following amounts of supplemental vitamin D3 per day in the absence of proper sun exposure.


 - Healthy infants - 1,000 IU/day
 - Healthy children - 1,000 IU/day per every 25 lbs. of body weight.
 - Healthy adults - 5,000 IU/day


Additionally, children and adults with chronic health conditions may need as much as double these amounts.




When you take the 25(OH)D test for vitamin D, the Vitamin D Council suggests that a level of


50 ng/ml is ideal

0-30 ng/ml is deficient

31-39 ng/ml is insufficient

40-80 ng/ml is sufficient

>150 ng/ml is toxic




Alternatively, Dr. Mercola and Dr. Holick suggest that a level of


50-70 ng/ml is ideal

0-50 ng/ml is deficient

70-100 ng/ml when treating cancer and heart disease

>100 ng/ml is excessive






Iodine is antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. Creatures living in the ocean get all the iodine they need from sea water. Humans are well advised to make a special effort to get it. The best food source of iodine is seaweed. Tincture of iodine can be applied to the skin at night (rub a small circle about the size of a quarter on your belly or thigh) and the body will absorb what it needs while you sleep. There are nutritional supplements called Iodoral 1, 2 and iThroid that provide a daily 12.5 mg dose of iodine and iodide comparable to that which the Japanese receive from their diet. Tissues throughout the human body use iodine and iodide. Research indicates that after about a year of consuming one Iodoral tablet daily the body tissues achieve saturation, and that continuing to take Iodoral daily helps maintain this saturation. Of course, if the iodine is being used up fighting infections, you may need more. Iodine has a very long history in medicine, and in the not too distant past iodine in gram amounts was given in the treatment of various diseases.


Lugol's solution is a mixture of iodine and potassium iodide. Iodine dosages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Read more about the use of iodine here 1, 2.



Glutathione is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiparasites. Plus, being an anti-oxidant it defends the body against free radicals, poisons, and ionizing radiation. Glutathione is the main anti-oxidant inside cells, whereas vitamin C is the main anti-oxidant outside cells. Depleted glutathione in the body precedes disease and death. Increased glutathione levels help prevent disease and aging. For optimum health and lifespan you must maintain your glutathione level.


Four nutrients are needed for the body to make glutathione - selenium, cysteine, glutamine and glycine. According to the Selenium Research Center, "Daily supplementation of diets with 200 micrograms of selenium yeast cut the cancer death rate in half." However, Individuals with a compromised immune system may need to double the dose of selenium, plus everyone should be sure to get enough cysteine, glutamine and glycine. Cysteine, glutamine and glycine are amino acids. Cysteine, glutamine and glycine are readily available in organic, cold-processed whey powder and organic pea protein powder. Brazil nuts contain selenium, cysteine, and glutamine.


Glutathione boosters include cold baths/showers, sulfur foods, undenatured whey protein, milk thistle (silymarin), selenium, alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl-L-cysteine, RiboCeine (ribose plus L-cysteine), sublingual L-glutathione. More ways to increase glutathione. 


Listen to this brief talk by Dr. Thomas E. Levy regarding glutathione as the body's master anti-oxidant. Intravenous glutathione is expensive. Intravenous and sublingual glutathione bypass the digestive system, but the glutathione in the blood must still be broken down into its constituent amino acids and then be reassembled inside the cells. The form of glutathione supplement that Dr. Levy recommends is called liposomal glutathione (GSH). This is because liposomal glutathione can both survive digestion and enter the cells of the body intact. There are YouTube videos about glutathione that you can listen to.


For more information regarding glutathione, read this book by Dr. Thomas Levy. Dr. Levy's website is See also Glutathione Peroxidase vs. Viruses and Glutathione, Selenium and Viral Infections.



If you understand the ability of Earthing to supply unlimited electrons to recharge the body's anti-oxidants, you can see the importance of Earthing to health and how it empowers other antioxidants to do their job. The surface of the Earth has a negative electrical charge. When grounded to the Earth, unlimited free electrons are available to the body.



Anything you do to reduce demands made on your immune system will free up immune system resources to deal with other problems. This is called the abscopal effect.


If you attack an infection early there is a good chance it can be cured. If you allow the disease to become chronic then treatment must continue until the old infected cells are dead and have been replaced by new ones. This is because viruses can invade your cells and the viral DNA can intermingle with the cell DNA. There is no way to undo this other than to have the cells die and be replaced by uninfected new cells. How long will this take? Some cells are replaced frequently, others live a long time. It is generally accepted that you have an entirely new body every seven years.


We are recommending a layered defense against infections using appropriate daily dosages of all of the above - vitamin C, vitamin D, iodine, glutathione, and Earthing. Each of these offers benefits that go far beyond fighting infections. You need them for good health.




Why not prevent infection?

"The microbe is nothing. The terrain is everything." - Claude Bernard (1813-1878)

How do we create a terrain that will resist infection?

A healthy terrain involves four factors:
1. alkalinity
2. negative electrical charge
3. nutrition
4. toxins (including emotional toxicity or stress)

Attaining an alkaline terrain is discussed in detail here salivaphtest.htm.

"If our internal environment was changed from an acidic oxygen deprived environment to an alkaline environment full of oxygen, viruses, bacteria and fungus cannot live." - Dr. Otto Warburg

Negative electrical charge begins with grounding the human body to the Earth because the surface of the Earth has a negative electrical charge. The negative charge is stored in the body as liquid crystal water, which acts as a battery to constantly recharge the body's antioxidant system.

Glutathione is the main antioxidant inside cells. Vitamin C is the main antioxidant outside cells. Vitamin E is the main fat soluble antioxidant and prevents oxidation of lipids. Vitamin A is the main antioxidant for the skin, which includes the lining of the lungs, esophagus, stomach and intestines. Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is the main antioxidant for mitochondria. ALA is soluble in both water and fat and easily penetrates the blood-brain barrier.

Nutrition to prevent infection will include the following:
Vitamin C is antiviral, antitoxin and antihistamine;
Vitamin D is antiviral and antibacterial;
Iodine is antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal;
Glutathione is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and antiparasite.


Four nutrients are needed to create and maintain glutathione - selenium, plus the amino acids cysteine, glutamine, and glycine.

There are many ways to minimize toxins in the body. These would include a clean diet, adequate sleep, daily exercise, non-smoking, sweating, maintaining a healthy colon, dealing effectively with stress, and much more.

To prove his point, Claude Bernard reportedly drank a glass of cholera tainted water. Cholera was the Ebola of his day.





"The evidence has been published in a large number of publications. Anyone willing to look will find it, especially if they do not rely too heavily on the U.S. National Library of Medicine's Medline database, which has, by censoring certain journals from its index, adopted the role of watchdog against the injection of new nutritional ideas into medicine." - Hoffer & Saul, pages 215-216.




Candida Albicans


Candida is a yeast or fungus that lives in everyone. When the immune system becomes weakened, a Candida outbreak can occur in the mouth, esophagus, digestive tract, skin, mucus membranes, vagina, urinary tract. It can enter the blood and spread throughout the body to include the kidneys, liver, bones, muscles, joints, spleen, or eyes causing a variety of diseases (including arthritis) depending on where it manifests. When it enters the bloodstream and spreads throughout the body, about 50% of these cases are fatal.


When the immune system is stressed, candida can morph from a harmless single cell form into a tube shape (hypha) that sprouts branches (mycelia) that penetrate cells and spread the infection throughout the body.


Megadoses of vitamin B3 may kill candida and other fungal infections.


Probiotics are showing promise to prevent and treat problems with candida and C. difficile in the gut. Live bacteria in yoghurt, kefir and sauerkraut help maintain a population of healthful "gut flora" within your digestive system. Be sure to purchase your sauerkraut from the refrigerated section of the grocery store. Oral vitamin C can also help create a healthy gut flora.


Fungus feeds on sugar and carbohydrates as are found in grains. An anti-fungal diet will minimize these foods. Sugar and grains are also the main dietary sources of mycotoxins. We suggest the ketogenic diet which minimizes carbohydrates while providing cells with plenty of energy in the form of healthy fats.


High blood levels of vitamin D can control fungal infections. Vitamin D is also effective against bacteria and viruses. Maintaining a high blood level of vitamin D is a good way to help prevent infections on an ongoing basis. The fat soluble form of vitamin D is available in dietary supplements. The water soluble form of vitamin D is only available through sunlight or UVB exposure to the skin. We suggest that every home north of Miami or San Diego should have a vitamin D lamp and it should be used for a few minutes daily. Plus, during warmer months a few minutes of exposure to sunshine daily will help maintain a high level of vitamin D in the blood.


In many cases, "drug resistant tuberculosis" may actually be a misdiagnosed chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) fungal infection. Fungal infections are often opportunistic, occurring when antibiotics have wiped out competing microorganisms in their environment. Everyone has fungi in the body, and everyone who uses antibiotics is risking a fungal bloom. Death by Fungi.


Eating coconut oil daily is a good way to control fungal infections.


Iodine is effective against fungi. You can rub iodine on your skin each day and the body will absorb what it needs. Or you can consume iodine and potassium iodide. Both forms of iodine are used by the body. We suggest one tablet of Iodoral daily as a regular part of your diet in order to maintain health and prevent infections. Iodine is needed as a nutrient, and is effective in the body against fungi, bacteria, protozoa, and many viruses. Iodoral contains the two forms of iodine that the body requires.


DMG (Dimethylglycine) is an inexpensive nutritional supplement that strengthens the body in a wide variety of ways, including improving the immune system. DMG has anti-fungal properties.



Niacin / Niacinamide


Vitamin B3, also called niacin and niacinamide, has been used in therapeutic doses of many grams daily. Nausea is a sign to reduce the dose. Doses are generally divided through the day. A common dose is one gram three times daily with meals. Vitamin B3 in large doses has been used to treat arthritis, schizophrenia, infections, and many other health problems.

Do a Google search for "niacinamide infections". You will find mentions of MRSA, Lyme, Candida, and more.




The following was written by Dr. Robert Rowan MD, an Integrative Medicine MD who specializes in oxidative medicine, in October 2012.


The terrible abuse of antibiotics has led to the rise of drug-resistant bugs. That’s led to the deaths of thousands of Americans. While the search is on for yet more chemical treatment, we are clearly losing the battle. It takes many years to develop and bring a drug to market, even if it’s highly safe. But germs multiply and can transfer resistance to other organisms in minutes. We clearly need to enhance our own defenses. I’ve repeatedly addressed oxidation therapy here. But there might be an even easier way. Would you be surprised to learn that a B vitamin that costs pennies might boost your immune system to wipe out the dreaded MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus)? Cedars Sinai researchers looked at the impact of this B vitamin on MRSA in both rodents and human blood. They found that high doses of vitamin B3 in the form of niacinamide stimulate the gene C/EBPe. This gene enhances your white blood cells’ ability to fight staph infections, regardless of antibiotic resistance. In fact, in human blood, the addition of the vitamin increased killing power by a stunning 1,000-fold. Staph germs simply disappeared from human blood in a few hours. The researchers found that the vitamin did not work at all in the absence of white blood cells, or in mice genetically lacking C/EBPe activity. The latter animals simply couldn’t respond to the vitamin. The researchers concluded that the vitamin appears to activate key pathways in your immune system to kill microbial invaders. Isn’t a turbo-charged immune system (toward invaders) what all of us want?


In this case, the researchers were studying a known genetic problem dealing with immunity. Niacinamide triggers expression of the gene (turns it on). Serendipitously, the researchers found that they could get the gene to over express with clinically achievable levels of the nutrient. And that made the immune cells go into a “feeding frenzy,” wiping out the foreign organisms. They became like sharks devouring a school of sardines.


I just love reports like this, where science uncovers the means to unlock the healing power of the human body. What is notable here is that investigators used concentrations of niacinamide that you can take easily – 6 grams per day. And they didn’t see any side effects. Too bad it’s taken so long to investigate this. A 1977 report suggested that niacinamide would enhance survival to staph infections in patients given an antibiotic. This study confirms niacinamide is a powerful staph fighter. If you or a loved one has any staph infection, make sure you’re taking plenty (6 grams/day) of niacinamide. You can find it at any health food store and online.”  Robert J. Rowan MD



(Editor's note: Perhaps one day we will find a way to turn on the gene that makes vitamin C. All humans have this gene, but it does not seem to be working in most people. There are about 24,000 genes in the human genome. Vitamin D modulates ("up or down regulates", or an alternative jargon "expresses or suppresses") about 3,000 of these genes, and there is extensive ongoing research in this area, called "epigenetics". Many different constituents of food are found to influence epigenetics. More than this, substances produced by your gut bacteria also influence your epigenetics. The biodiversity of gut bacteria 1, 2, 3 in a modern human is only about 50% of the biodiversity found in isolated primitive human cultures. Worse, hospital patients exposed to extensive antibiotics and painkillers can have dramatically reduced gut biodiversity, and the few bacteria that remain may be more virulent. The bacteria in your gut reflect your diet and may impact your health. For example, vegetarians have different gut bacteria compared to meat eaters, obese people have different gut bacteria compared to thin people, and people with cancer have different gut bacteria compared to those who do not have cancer.)







Epstein Barr Virus


Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) is found in about 95% of the population. There is no drug treatment for EBV. In teenagers, EBV causes infectious mononucleosis. In adults, EBV is associated with chronic fatigue syndrome and certain cancers (Burkitt's lymphoma and nasopharyngeal carcinoma).


Fifty percent of breast cancers studied contained evidence of infection with the Epstein-Barr virus. The virus was not found in the surrounding normal breast tissue.

Lipid-coated microorganisms such as Epstein Barr virus are killed by medium chain fatty acids produced by the digestion of coconut oil. - Bruce Fife, N.D. page 68


A study of athletes experiencing fatigue and declining performance due to Epstein Barr Virus demonstrated that consuming a probiotic supplement (Lactobacillus acidophilus) daily for a month cleared up the problem. - Brit J Sports Med 06;40(4):351-354.


We recommend maintaining a "healthy terrain" including appropriate dosages of vitamin C, sunlight/vitamin D, iodine, glutathione, DMG, and oxygen, plus a strong immune system and other procedures mentioned on this page to help prevent and control infections.



BK Virus and JC Virus


"BK" and "JC" are the initials of the patients in whom these viruses were first discovered. Up to 80% of the population have these viruses. The viruses tend to remains latent until a person experiences some form of immunodeficiency or immunosuppression. These viruses generally affect the kidneys and urinary tract. BK virus, JC virus and the SV40 virus are all genetically similar.


We recommend maintaining a "healthy terrain" including appropriate dosages of vitamin C, sunlight/vitamin D, iodine, glutathione, DMG, and oxygen, plus a strong immune system and other procedures mentioned on this page to help prevent and control infections.



Simian Virus 40


Contaminants have been found in vaccinations that may cause cancer, such as the monkey virus SV40 that contaminated all polio vaccinations given between 1955 and 1961 (the polio vaccine is grown on monkey tissue). 1, 2, 3


Intravenous vitamin C has been reported to cure polio in just a few days, providing the treatment takes place early. See Klenner.


We recommend maintaining a "healthy terrain" including appropriate dosages of vitamin C, sunlight/vitamin D, iodine, glutathione, DMG, and oxygen, plus a strong immune system and other procedures mentioned on this page to help prevent and control infections.




Herpes Virus


The CDC estimates that 80% of American adults carry the herpes simplex 1 (HSV1) virus. HSV1 is responsible for cold sores.


About 50 million Americans have the herpes simplex 2 (HSV2) virus also known as genital herpes.


Genital herpes simplex virus affects one in four women and one in five men. There is no drug cure. Chlamydia, human papilloma virus, and genital herpes all contribute to cervical cancer.


The herpes family of viruses includes the Epstein-Barr Virus and Cytomegalovirus, which are associated with various cancers.


Propolis is surprisingly effective against herpes.

Human Papilloma Virus


Human papilloma virus (genital warts) affects the sexually active population. About 80% of women are infected with HPV by age 50. Modern medicine offers no cure. HPV is associated with anal, bladder and genital cancers in both men and women. Chlamydia trachomatis, human papilloma virus, and genital herpes all contribute to cervical cancer.


We recommend maintaining a "healthy terrain" including appropriate dosages of vitamin C, sunlight/vitamin D, iodine, glutathione, DMG, and oxygen, plus a strong immune system and other procedures mentioned on this page to help prevent and control infections.



Chlamydia Pneumoniae


50% of the population shows evidence of having had Chlamydia pneumoniae infection by age 20. It is safe to say that nearly every adult has had this bacteria in their body. Symptoms of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection include a cough. From your lungs, this bacteria has easy access to your bloodstream and the rest of your body. The common respiratory bacteria Chlamydia pneumoniae may play a key role in coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death. Chlamydia pneumoniae may also play a role in Alzheimer's disease, asthma, and arthritis.


Lipid-coated microorganisms such as Chlamydia pneumoniae are killed by medium chain fatty acids produced by the digestion of coconut oil. - Bruce Fife, N.D. page 68


Pneumonia is an infection that inflames the alveoli (air sacks) of the lungs. The infection can be bacterial, viral or fungal. Klenner offers a detailed vitamin C protocol for virus pneumonia.


We recommend maintaining a "healthy terrain" including appropriate dosages of vitamin C, sunlight/vitamin D, iodine, glutathione, DMG, and oxygen, plus a strong immune system and other procedures mentioned on this page to help prevent and control infections.




Chlamydia Trachomatis


Chlamydia trachomatis bacteria is reported to infect about a million Americans annually, but the total number is unknown because most have mild or no symptoms. Untreated Chlamydia can cause problems including arthritis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and sterility. Chlamydia, human papilloma virus, and genital herpes all contribute to cervical cancer.


We recommend maintaining a "healthy terrain" including appropriate dosages of vitamin C, sunlight/vitamin D, iodine, glutathione, DMG, and oxygen, plus a strong immune system and other procedures mentioned on this page to help prevent and control infections.





Communities of bacteria protected by biofilm are invisible to your immune system and shielded from even the most powerful antibiotics and steroids. These biofilm protected communities of bacteria may be responsible for chronic inflammatory conditions. Many autoimmune diseases are associated with chronic inflammation. Cancer may actually be caused by chronic inflammation. Inflammatory heart disease may be associated with Chlamydia infections. Diabetic wounds that formerly resulted in amputations are now being cured by treating biofilm.


"What we are only starting to realize today is that at least 80% of all the infections we treat are caused by biofilm bacteria..." - Dr. Randall Wolcott


These biofilm protected communities of bacteria can consist of dozens of different kinds of bacteria and fungi living together beneath the same biofilm.


Biofilms can be broken down by lactoferrin, xylitol, D-mannose, enzymes, oxygen, nanosilver, garlic, green tea polyphenols and bacteriophages (bacteria-eating viruses).


Lactoferrin works by removing iron, which bacteria require. Men and post-menopausal women can also reduce their iron by donating blood. (Avoid eating iron filings in breakfast cereal and other "enriched" foods. Watch on YouTube as people blend their breakfast cereals with water and then remove iron filings with a magnet.)


We strongly recommend toothpaste 1, 2 that contains xylitol. This protects both the teeth and gums from biofilm and the organisms it conceals. There is a close correlation between unhealthy (inflamed) gums and cancer. Children who started a regular program of chewing xylitol gum one to two years before their permanent teeth erupted had 90% fewer cavities in their adult teeth compared to the control group five years later. A xylitol nasal spray is available to flush fungi, bacteria and allergens from your sinuses.


There is much information on the Internet regarding biofilms.





Tuberculosis (TB)


The CDC estimates that about 1/3 of the population of the planet have the tubercle bacillus (TB) bacteria in their body. Tuberculosis is a mycobacteria. The disease develops when the immune system cannot keep the tubercle bacilli under control. Tuberculosis was formerly known as "consumption". TB presently kills 1.3 million people annually.


MDR-TB  multidrug-resistant tuberculosis

XDR -TB  extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis

TDR-TB  totally drug-resistant tuberculosis


Search the Internet for "tuberculosis vitamin C". "We've discovered that vitamin C kills Mycobacterium tuberculosis cells, and in fact it works not only on the multidrug-resistant strains, but the totally drug-resistant strains as well." - Dr. William Jacobs See also 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.


Sunlight has long been known to be an effective treatment for tuberculosis. Sunlight on the skin makes vitamin D.


Iodine kills mycobacteria.


Watch this video with Charlotte Gerson.


See our page on healthy lungs.


In many cases, "drug resistant tuberculosis" may actually be misdiagnosed chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) fungal infection (1, 2). The test to determine the presence of CPA is to look for Aspergillus antibodies. Fungal infections are often opportunistic, occurring when antibiotics have wiped out competing microorganisms in their environment. Everyone has fungi in the body, and everyone who uses antibiotics is risking a fungal bloom. Death by Fungi.


Megadoses of vitamin B3 (niacin, niacinamide) may kill fungal infections.


Fungus feeds on sugar and carbohydrates as are found in grains. Sugar and grains are also the main dietary sources of mycotoxins. We suggest the ketogenic diet for everyone.

 Toxoplasmosis gondii


Between a third and a half of the world population is infected by the single-celled parasite Toxoplasmosis gondii, a disease spread by cats, kitty litter and playground sand or garden soil used by the cats. This disease is characterized by tiny cysts in your brain, muscles, eyes and other organs. The disease degrades mental functioning and may even cause blindness. A strong immune system will keep the parasite in check. If the immune system becomes weakened, then the parasite will emerge from the cysts and continue eating you. There is experimental evidence that the immune system CD8+ T cells can remove T. Gondii cysts.



Helicobacter Pylori


Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a cork screw shaped bacteria that according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) inhabits about two thirds of the world's population. H. pylori can damage the stomach lining leading to ulcers, and may also be involved in heart disease, autoimmune diseases, skin diseases and several cancers (stomach, pancreas and larynx). Inflammation of the stomach lining caused by H. pylori is the leading risk factor for stomach cancer.


About 20% of people infected with H. pylori develop an ulcer. What is it that prevents the other 80% from getting an ulcer? This is a question we ask of every infectious disease, even Ebola. What makes the survivors special? These questions open the door to prevention and more effective treatment. There may be other courses of action besides medical intervention.

Regular consumption of probiotic bacteria (yoghurt, kefir, sauerkraut, etc.) offers a natural means to help control Helicobacter pylori. - Journal of Applied Microbiology Volume 93 Issue 6 Page 1083  - December 2002


H. pylori is killed by the amino acid glycine. - Antimicrob Agents Chemother 04;48(10):3782-8. You will find glycine in various protein powders.


H. pylori is killed by a chemical in broccoli sprouts, which also have an anti-cancer effect. - Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences May 28, 2002. See our page on raw foods and sprouts.


Lipid-coated microorganisms such as H. pylori are killed by medium chain fatty acids produced by the digestion of coconut oil. - Bruce Fife, N.D. page 68.


DMG is useful in controlling ulcers.


For pain anywhere along the digestive tract (from mouth ulcers to stomach ulcers to Colitis) try Gastro Guardian.


A healthy digestive tract is called by some doctors your "second immune system".


Sangre de Drago is a tree in the Amazon. The sap of this tree is found to heal stomach ulcers, and is effective against E. Coli, hepatitis A and B, herpes simplex 1 and 2, influenza, diarrhea and dysentery. The sap can also be rubbed on wounds, where it reduces pain and inflammation while promoting healing. Many skin problems respond favorably.

Syphilis is a  sexually transmitted disease caused by the cork screw shaped bacterium Treponema pallidum. The incidence of syphilis is increasing at about 12% per annum. However, syphilis in women is declining. All of the increase in syphilis is in the male homosexual community. In its early stages, syphilis is easily cured with antibiotics. Long term syphilis infection has been called "the great imitator" because so many of the signs and symptoms are indistinguishable from those of other diseases.


Hyperthermia is a traditional treatment for syphilis. Many people have endured "malaria therapy", trading the fevers of malaria for the dementia of syphilis. Malaria therapy was replaced by penicillin in the 1950s.


Iodine in amounts greater than one gram daily.


"At 6 grams daily (which is 6 million micrograms/day or 6,000 milligrams/day!), a much higher dose, iodine has been used to cure syphilis, skin lesions, and chronic lung disease," says Dr. Cousens. "From a larger physiological perspective, it is important to realize that the thyroid is only one gland of many glands and tissues that need iodine. Other glands/organs/systems with high iodine uptake are the breasts, ovaries, cervix, blood, lymph, bones, gastric mucosal, salivary, adrenal, prostate, colon, thymus, lungs, bladder, kidney, and skin. Iodine is found and used in every hormonal receptor in the body," he states.

Also see the treatments for Lyme disease below.



Lyme Disease


Lyme disease is caused by a cork screw shaped spirochetes bacteria (Borrelia burgdorferi) very similar to syphilis (Treponema pallidum). The bacteria is spiral shaped and by rotating it can self-propel itself through your tissues, tendons, muscles, heart and brain.


It used to be thought that Lyme disease was caused only by being bitten by a tick. However, it is now believed that the bacteria can be spread by other insects including fleas, mosquitoes and mites, as well as directly between humans via blood, urine, tears, semen, breast milk, cord blood, and vaginal secretions.


"More than 50% of chronically ill people may have Lyme contributing to their condition." - Dr. Cowden


Lyme disease may be present in the body with no symptoms until a trauma weakens the immune system. Then Lyme disease can present symptoms that mimic over 350 other diseases. People diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer's, chronic fatigue syndrome and other degenerative diseases could have Lyme Disease. Lyme disease is the new "great imitator".


Doctors familiar with Lyme disease estimate that as many as 20 million Americans may be infected and that the rate of new infections is very high. Lyme disease is very difficult to treat. Doctors sometimes put patients on antibiotics for many years. Lyme has a dormant cyst stage during which it is immune to attack by the various treatments. This is why treatment for Lyme disease continues for a year or more, so that as the cysts return to the more active bacterial form, they can be destroyed. Another option is called "pulsing", where treatment is taken for four days followed by three days off. The three off days encourage cysts to become active and vulnerable to the following four day treatment pulse.


Oxygen is gaining popularity as a treatment for Lyme disease. Lyme bacteria is NOT anaerobic. It is called "microaerophyllic" which means that it requires a small amount of oxygen. However, it can be killed by large amounts of oxygen.


Hyperbaric oxygen chambers are expensive, especially if you need to use them repeatedly. Plus, there may be places in the body where the oxygen does not penetrate to the degree necessary to kill the bacteria. Therefore, we would suggest that oxygen is an important part of a program to treat Lyme disease, and that other treatments are also required. Plus, we would suggest that EWOT is a more economical form of oxygen therapy that can be done at home.


One herb that has been found to be effective is Uncaria tomentosa (Cat's Claw). This herb is also sometimes used to treat cancer. There is an extract of Cat's Claw called "Samento" from Nutramedix that is reported to be particularly effective against Lyme disease. Being a nutritional supplement rather than a drug, Nutramedix is not permitted to say much about it. However, there is an abundance of information on the Internet.


There is another herbal supplement called "Amazon Spiro" reported to be effective against Lyme disease. Amazon Spiro contains extracts of six rainforest herbs and is available from Raintree Nutrition. The six herbs are traditional remedies for syphilis. Due to the similarity between syphilis and Lyme (B. burgdorferi), Dr. Leslie Taylor tested these herbs for Lyme with good results. The combination of herbs works even better.


Many people with Lyme disease are reporting good results with sodium chlorite (also known as Miracle Mineral Supplement).


"But there is a level beyond that, which I'm hoping I'm introducing here. If you just do antibiotics, okay, you just do antibiotics. But if you think more holistically and do the things that I recommend, then you no longer will need to resort to antibiotics because you cover your system on so many other fronts. And with that you're not only treating Lyme disease but you're preventing cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease - you're preventing pretty much all the other things that we didn't know were associated with Lyme." - Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD.


One of the treatments mentioned by Dr. Klinghardt in the audio tape above is niacinamide, 1 gram three times a day. Niacinamide was used to effectively treat spirochetes in Italy. Interestingly, Dr. William Kaufman used multiple daily doses of niacinamide to treat arthritis and joint pain. The connection may be provided by Dr. Edward C. Rosenow who consistently found bacteria in the lymph nodes that drain joints.


"Dr. Edward C. Rosenow, author of 450 published medical papers and an associate at the Mayo Clinic for over 60 years...proved over 80 years ago (1914) that bacteria could be found consistently in the lymph nodes that drain joints. He was probably the first scientist to postulate that H2O2 would help arthritis because of its ability to supply oxygen to oxygen-hating organisms causing arthritis (streptococcus viridans)." - Dr. Douglass, page 6.


Do an Internet search for "vitamin B3 infections" and you may be amazed at the infections it can help fight.


Given the effectiveness of iodine for syphilis (see above), why not try iodine for Lyme disease? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Complementary nutrients would include selenium, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids. 1


The use of iodine is not uncontroversial. Small amounts of iodine are or should be available in food. Larger amounts may be harmful for people who do not require them. However, various health conditions may benefit from more iodine even up to multiple grams of iodine daily.


We generally wear a hat when outside to keep ticks off the head.

Propolis is a substance made by honey bees to protect their hive. Propolis is found to be antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. Propolis is also anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.


Propolis aids healing when sprayed on wounds, surgical incisions, burns, and tissue damage associated with diabetes. Propolis enhances the health of the mouth, even helping to regenerate tooth pulp. Propolis boosts the effectiveness of the immune system and stimulates natural killer (NK) to attack cancer. Propolis is effective against cold sores, genital herpes and vaginal yeast. Propolis kills MRSA, drug-resistant E. coli, and even helps the common cold.


Propolis is not water soluble, but will dissolve in oil or alcohol. Search the internet for more information about propolis, royal jelly, bee pollen, honey and other bee products.


(Note:  Most "honey" sold in grocery stores is not honey at all. It is an artificial "honey" made from other sweeteners and imported from China. Honey sold at farmer's markets is more likely to be genuine. 1)










AHCC (active hexos correlated compound) is an extract derived from several types of mushroom known for immune-enhancing ability.


AHCC increases CD4 and CD8 T cells as well as NK (natural killer) cells. These cells are the front line of your immune system, attacking anything (viruses, bacteria, fungus) that is not self.


AHCC helps defeat influenza, H5N1 (avian flu), Candida albicans fungus (yeast infection), MSRA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus bacteria), West Nile virus.


AHCC can be consumed by healthy people to maintain health, and by sick people to get better.


Agaricus blazei


Agaricus blazei is a species mushroom popular for treating cancer in Japan. Agaricus blazei stimulates the immune system and may have direct antiviral effects.







For all infections, we suggest consulting with your doctor, plus a comprehensive program of health promotion using the home therapies promoted on this web site.


Our 8 step program for cancer can be implemented BEFORE you get cancer in order to prevent cancer. Similarly, our program for infection can be implemented BEFORE a serious infection occurs. Everyone should establish a healthy terrain in their body, consisting of alkalinity, negative electrical charge, proper nourishment and removal of toxic substances. 


Humans have lost the genetic ability to make vitamin C, so it is an essential nutrient. We have no choice but to eat it. Vitamin C is antiviral. Sunlight is a natural disinfectant and everyone should expose their skin to a moderate amount of sunlight regularly, use a UVB lamp and take vitamin D supplements. Vitamin D is antiviral and antibacterial.  Iodine is effective against viruses, bacteria and fungi. Everyone should consume a little iodine each day by rubbing tincture of iodine on the skin and by consuming Lugol's solution, Iodoral 1, 2, or iThroid. Glutathione defends cells from a wide variety of attackers.


Earthing provides unlimited electrons to recharge your body's antioxidant defense system. Oxygen is a natural disinfectant and Exercise with Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) is a powerful and economical treatment that can be done at home. Hyperthermia helps to purify the body and should be enjoyed regularly by everyone. A strong immune system is maintained by a healthy diet including freshly made fruit & vegetable juices, glyconutrients plus regular exercise, and meditation. Electromedicine provides an economical way to attack stubborn infections. DMG strengthens the immune system in a variety of ways. Oil Pulling helps maintain a healthy mouth. All of these can be an important part of your healthy lifestyle, preventing disease as well as treating it.



In the following table we have highlighted in yellow the cancers that may be prevented by a high blood level of vitamin D.



List of human cancers associated with infectious pathogens.

This list comes from the following web page:


Some estimates currently attribute 15% to 20% of all cancers to infectious pathogen causes.[45][46] In future, this percentage may be revised upwards if the pathogens currently associated with cancers (such as those listed below) are proven to actually cause those cancers.

"The mechanisms by which infectious agents promote cancer are becoming increasingly evident. Infection-related inflammation is the major risk factor for cancer, and almost all viruses linked to cancer have been shown to activate the inflammatory marker, NF-kB (65). Similarly, components of Helicobacter pylori have been shown to activate NF-kB (66). Thus, agents that can block chronic inflammation should be effective in treating these conditions." - (Anand, et al., page 2102)



"I believe that, conservatively, 15 to 20 percent of all cancer is caused by infections; however, the number could be larger - maybe double." - Dr. Andrew Dannenberg


"A medical textbook used to educate Johns Hopkins medical students
in 1957, Clinical and Immunologic Aspects of Fungous Diseases,

Diseases associated with infections include Alzheimer's disease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), anorexia nervosa, anxiety disorder, asthma, atherosclerosis, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, autoimmune disease, bipolar disorder, 25 different cancers, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Crohn's disease, coronary heart disease, dementia, depression, diabetes mellitus type 1, diabetes mellitus type 2, dilated cardiomyopathy, epilepsy, Guillain-Barre syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, low back pain, lupus, metabolic syndrome, multiple sclerosis, myocardial infarction, obesity, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, Parkinson's disease, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis, schizophrenia, stroke, thromboangiitis obliterans, Tourette syndrome, vasculitis.


We suggest that the ultimate foundation of infectious disease is to be found in an unhealthy terrain and a weak immune system.




Nutrition vs. Ebola


Ebola virus and vitamin C (starting at 180 grams intravenous sodium ascorbate per 24 hours and increasing as necessary to break fever) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Do an Internet search for your home town and intravenous vitamin C so you know where to go if this becomes necessary. Orthomolecular and Naturopathic doctors provide this service. However, if the government declares martial law and locks up everyone showing symptoms (or even without symptoms if they may have been exposed to the virus), then you may lose control of your treatment. If intravenous vitamin C is not available, you can supplement oral vitamin C with a vitamin C enema. Put 15 to 30 grams of ascorbic acid (or ascorbate) in a cup of clean water and give it by enema. Do this multiple times daily, along with multiple oral doses. The least expensive and most effective oral vitamin C is ascorbic acid in a cup of water. Drink it through a straw to keep the weak acid away from the teeth. Ebola - Saving Lives with Natural Allopathic Medicine - selenium, vitamin E, magnesium, vitamin C, sodium bicarbonate, vitamin D, iodine, hyperthermia, and glutathione. Ebola and dehydration. Ebola and selenium deficiency 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Viral infections are pH sensitive. Strengthen the immune system. Economical ozone treatment for Ebola effectively resisted by anonymous "powers behind the scene" 1, 2.


Ebola triggers a "cytokine storm" and it is the cytokine storm that kills. The cytokine storm is an inflammatory response that becomes out of control. To deal with the situation you need to remove the infection/cause and calm the inflammation. Antivirals include vitamin C, vitamin D, iodine, and glutathione. Calming the inflammation involves anti-inflammatories and antioxidants. Anti-inflammatories include bicarbonate, vitamin C, vitamin D, omega 3 fatty acid, magnesium chloride, curcumin, etc.  Antioxidants include glutathione, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, iodide, selenium, coenzyme Q10/ubiquinol, alpha lipoic acid, carotenoids, flavonoids and Earthing. The pandemic flu (H1N1) virus of 1918 killed healthy people by creating a cytokine storm.


In addition to hydration, a nutritional regimen in response to Ebola might look something like this (adapted from Dr. Stoller, Dr. Cathcart and others):

Do a Parasite Cleanse Annually


It's estimated that 90% of the population may have some form of harmful organism lurking in their body and they don't know it! These intruders live and feed off the host, depriving us of vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids, altering our natural pH levels, decreasing our energy, and creating an acidic environment in the body. Paratrex® aids the body in creating an inhospitable environment for these invading organisms.
