Desiree LotzFirst it was the birds that got the rap and now it’s the pigs. And we fall hook, line and sinker for all the dour news that devastation is going to descend and kill us all if we don’t have a needle jabbed into us!

There has been flu on this planet since time immemorial and we’re still here - in ever-increasing numbers. What happened to the so-called devastating effects of the last big flu threat - avian flu? It flew into non-existence and died the death it deserved. It’s amazing how much fear a controlled media can create.

Here’s a calm and very sane viewpoint on the current media scare about swine flu from a congressman who is himself a doctor with decades of experience and who has been in Congress for more than three decades. Do yourself a favor and hear what he has to say on it at: It will make you feel a lot better!

Solutions to any immune-system threat are the same standard solutions since time immemorial. Do those things that boost your immune system. Don’t compromise it even more with unproven, ineffective solutions that only enrich those who have no conscience.

Eat well (plenty of fresh salads, not overcooked vegetables and good protein - not junk foods or McDonalds!), get enough sleep, have fun and get some sun (vitamin D) – don’t “block” it out.

Here’s my remedy for sick people. Ensure they’re hydrated with enough water and minerals, especially calcium, magnesium, potassium, salt and a full array of trace minerals (the little homeopathic combination cell salts work well). Even if someone is just “a bit off color”, this is my standard solution. Your body can manufacture most of the vitamins it needs if it gets enough minerals. Dehydration is the biggest danger as it affects your immune system.

Don’t force food on a sick person. Encourage them to sip a smoothie consisting of a little fruit, coconut milk (not soy as it inhibits mineral absorption), a raw egg or two (yellow parts) as food can be the last thing they want. Ensure there is always silence around anyone who is sick and whatever you do, don’t voice any sympathy! You can show it but don’t voice it.

A fever means that bacteria or viruses are being killed off (this is good) and is only dangerous if it goes too high. If this happens, place a large plastic bag on the bed with a towel on it and let the person lie on it with a cool wet towel on top of them. Keep wetting the towel till the fever breaks. A lukewarm to cold bath will work too but they could protest, so do it on a gradient - encourage, don’t force.

Don’t get into a panic about “symptoms” of the so-called swine flu. They’re the same as common flu. Reports are very generalized and embellished. Even if it is the swine flu, these handlings are still what I would do. Handle as above and remain calm.

Don’t give in to it. Use judgment, listen to Dr. Ron Paul again and top up everyone’s immune system with good food, sufficient sleep, fun, vitamins and minerals. Get your family onto Instant CalMag-C today! Calcium and magnesium are vitally important for building a strong immune system.
