We don't know how bad the swine flu is going to be so it's something to be concerned about. It's clear that the virus spreads from person to person so sanitation is the first line of defense. This flu also seems to hurt young adults as well as the old and young so everyone should be careful.
I choose to encourage people to build their immune system.
Therapeutic grade essential oils offer significant assistance in managing pandemics.
OREGANO tested at Georgetown - In 2001, Georgetown University tested therapeutic grade Oregano against all know viral bacteria and found nothing to withstand the oregano.
Abstract Study Reference:
Effect of a Diffused Essential Oil Blend on Bacterial Bioaerosols S.C. Chao, D.G. Young, and C.J. Oberg, Weber State University, Ogden, UT. Journal of Essential Oil Research 10, 517-523 (Sept/Oct 1998).
Abstract: A proprietary blend of oils containing cinnamon, rosemary, clove, eucalyptus, and lemon was tested for its antibacterial activity against airborne Micrococcus luteus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Staphylococcus aureus. The bacteria cultures were sprayed in an enclosed area and the essential oil blend was diffused for a given amount of time. There was an 82 percent reduction in M. luteus bioaerosol, a 96 percent reduction in the P. aeruginosa bioaerosol, and a 44 percent reduction in the S. aureus bioaerosol following 10 minutes of exposure.
On page 129 & 130 of the (4th Edition) Essential Oils Desk Reference, it says:
"Studies conducted at Weber State University (Ogden , UT ) during 1997 demonstrated its [the essential oil blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus radiata and rosemary] killing power against airborne microorganisms. One analysis showed a 90 percent reduction in the number of gram positive Micrococcus luteus organisms after diffusing for 12 minutes. After 20 minutes of diffusing, the kill-rate jumped to 99.3 percent. Another study against the gram negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa showed a kill rate of 99.6 percent after just 12 minutes of diffusion."
Dr. Terry Friedmann, M.D. Anti-Microbial Blend..."Regarding my anti-microbial formula [see below], my strong belief is that this formula should be reserved for chronic bacterial, fungal, or viral infection, or for acute viral and bacterial infections, which could "slow you down" or lead to more serious complications. In other words, use this formula only in specific serious situations rather than preventive or maintenance, because we are dealing with a "powerful battleship" here! This formula should not be given to children 10 years or younger. I believe we are facing in the near future some deadly serious infections of epidemic proportions, which may threaten millions of people. We are certainly seeing an abundance of more widespread diseases right now. Examples are the West Nile virus and the gastrointestinal diseases of the commercial cruises (e.g. Norovirus)" * ~ Dr. Terry Friedmann, M.D. is the author of "Freedom Through Health"
