Whether the swine flu is a real concern, or an attempt by the
pharmaceutical companies to make more money on vaccines, this might be
helpful information.

X-posted. Forward this or post where-ever you like

Herbal Pandemic Preparedness
Sources: Farmacy Herbs, Karlo Berger, American Red Cross.

Step One Prevention:
If the flu hits your area the best practice is prevention

Sage, Skullcap, Oregano, Thyme, Elder Flower, Holy Basil, Nettle.
2-3 cups daily

Echinacea 2x daily; 2 dropperful (One week on, one week off)
Astragulus Tea (3 cups) or Tincture( 2 dropperful 3x daily)

Miso, raw garlic, veggie broths, Cayenne pepper, Turmeric, organic
veggies, meats and grains.
Stay away from processed foods, food coloring and sugar and alcohol
(sugars in the body feed bacteria and viruses) and coffee (coffee
dehydrates the body and depletes you of vitamins and minerals that will
help fight off pathogens).

Anti-Viral/ Anti-biotic Hand Wash:
10 drops grapefruit seed extract/ 10 drops tea tree essential oil extract
in 1 gallon water

Antiseptic Spray for surfaces:
Vodka, Water, Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Essential oil. Disinfect door knobs
switches , handles, toys and other surfaces that are commonly touched.

Air Sanitizer:
Simmer water on low heat in a pot with 5 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil or
5 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil or Lavender Essential Oil

If you do come down with the flu, then focus on immunity!

Continue tea:
Sage, Skullcap, Oregano, Thyme, Elder Flower, Holy Basil, Nettle.
(1 quart daily.)

add these tinctures 2 droperfull 3x daily
Meadowsweet, Japanese Knotweed, Turmeric
(keep up the echinacea and the astragulus)

Colloidal Silver: 2 squirts three times daily

Vitamin C 20000 mg daily

Grapefruit seed Extract: 1/4 teaspoon once daily.

Sleep Aids/ Pain Relief:
Valerian, Chamomile, White Willow Bark, Lemon Balm, St. Johns Wort
Take 1-2 squirts of tincture as needed or 1-2 cups of tea as needed

Stay home and avoid sharing items with household members (pens, papers,
computers, remote control. sheets, towels eating utensils, food.)

Wear a surgical mask when around others.

Clean sheets, bedding and clothes every day.

Take baths with 10 drops of lavender essential oil and 10 drops rosemary
essential oil and sea salt.
If your fever is high, use lukewarm water, if your fever is not high, hot
baths are okay.
(Remember fevers are our bodies way of heating up to kill pathogens. Very
high fevers are dangerous, but a low fever is actually good)

Drink veggie and chicken broths with miso and raw garlic (tons of it!) and
a pinch of Cayenne Pepper.

If you have an appetite eat only organic brown rice and greens/ steamed
veggies ( the simpler the better with food, if you put food that is hard
to digest in your body, your energy goes to digesting, rather than
fighting pathogens)

Air sanitizer: Water steam with Eucalyptus Essential Oil or Tea Tree
Essential Oil or Lavender Oil (do this in the room every 5 hours)

Caregivers should wear disposable gloves and wearing a mask when giving care.

I never read shit like this, so I can't detect the sarcasm. In the "Ask Marilyn" column of The Oregonian's Parade:

What do you consider "complimentary" at a hotel? Is it OK to take an apple from the breakfast buffet to eat later? What about the little bottles of shampoo?
                   --Melda Thornton, San Diego, Calif.

Complimentary items are intended to be consumed at the hotel. If you take them home, you are being cheap in a small way. That's unattractive. Worse, being cheap can lead to being stingy.


What does this mean? Is Melda serious? Is Marilyn serious? Melda Thornton was pretty damn earnest with her question. And due to the nature of the rest of the column, in which the other responses were all as equally earnest as the questions, I would be led to believe that Marilyn vos Savant actually scorns the theft of shampoo from honest hotel corporations such as the Hilton, Mariott Inn, Holiday Inn, what have you...

But on the other hand, Melda was so sweet, so blind, so controlled, that I can't help but guess that Marilyn was struck but the stark stupidity of her inquiry. She was shocked into a state of transcendence and couldn't help but print a tongue-in-cheek response to poor, mislead, Melda's question.

I commend Marilyn for her recognition of blind consumerism at its finest. But I condemn her,

A) For giving a response so laden with sarcasm that poor Melda would be unable to detect, and

B) For implying that it's okay to fork over money to hotels as long as you, ahem, "one-up" them by pocketing shampoo and apples.

Hey. Washington is cool, paperwork is not. Ten foot hoops on fire and catch-22's to get money from the government are not.

Kenzie darling, your party sounds like it was fun.

Yeah yeah, blah blah, I'm back. I probably won't be cruising around town much lately though, seeing as I have to do such things as:

save Christmas

file an insurance claim (interesting story, really, an accident on I5 that resulted in eating lamb at 11p.m. in Vancouver with two highly animated cowboy hat-toting Native Americans...and one maybe totaled car)

hope those hives weren't from a common allergen

figure out this bureaucratic residency bullshit

file a sanity claim

1. For the record, check out


if you haven't.

This is my profile.

2. Yes, it's light years away, but if anyone was planning on going to the Oregon Country Fair this summer (it's in July) we should GET OUR ACT TOGETHER this time and consolidate the Corvallis people into one camp! Then we can all trip together!

Same goes maybe for Burning Man, though this is slightly more complicated.

"Back in the seventies, a New York food additive manufacturer called International Flavors & Fragrances used its annual report to defend itself against the rising threat of 'natural foods' and explain why we were better off eating synthetics. Natural ingredients, the company pointed out rather scarily, are a 'wild mixture of substances created by plants and animals for completely non-food purposes--their survival and reproduction.' These dubious substances 'came to be consumed by humans at their own risk'."

I've determined, in all seriousness, the only useful thing to do with people who could possibly believe this is to murder them and use their bodies as fertilizer for organic gardens. It might be difficult to consider it "organic", however, if these people have consumed factory-farmed meat that was in all likelihood--to counter the negative effects of its unnatural diet of GMO corn, chicken shit, and cow fat--force fed antibiotics.


On a lighter note, there's some guy in Portland who calls himself  "Urban Scout". There's a video on his myspace of him kneeling on a sidewalk in downtown Portland, clad only in a loincloth, making fire with sticks with a sign that says "WILL LIGHT CIGARETTES FOR $".

Yay the news!

The newscaster narrated a short clip of some people sitting in a room with clipboards. He proclaimed in with excessive inflection, as if he had just discovered a cat reading a book on the toilet, "now look at this: Afghans--being polled, by other Afghans!".

It's like they're humans or something.
