Natural Health Author Teaches Readers How to Beat Bird Flu Virus, Even if Vaccines and Antiviral Drugs Run Out

Flu book supplies consumers with the flu protection strategies they will need to face a possible flu pandemic.

Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) November 8, 2005

Countries around the world are preparing for a bird flu pandemic, but the fact is there aren't enough antiviral drugs or vaccines to treat everyone. Even in wealthy countries such as the United States, supplies are vastly inadequate compared to the estimated number of people that may be infected (30% of the global population, according to World Health Organization estimates). To help people stay healthy and survive the pandemic, holistic author Mike Adams has compiled nutritional defenses against viral infections in his new guide "What You Need to Know About the Bird Flu."

"If vaccines run out, people can still protect themselves by using natural therapies like antiviral herbs, foods and supplements," said Adams. "In fact, the top recommended antiviral drug, Tamiflu, is manufactured from an ancient Chinese herb, star anise." The public, says Adams, is not being informed about the antiviral capabilities of herbs and foods because conventional medicine places too much emphasis on pharmaceuticals and vaccines while ignoring natural remedies.

Earlier this year, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Julie L. Gerberding, MD, MPH, testified that the U. S. has stockpiled enough Tamiflu and Rimantadine tablets to treat approximately 6.5 million adults. With more than 290 million people in the U. S., that supply will treat less than five percent of population. Should a pandemic strike, antiviral foods and herbs may be the only option available to most Americans.

This is especially important because the bird flu virus could easily mutate into a Tamiflu-resistant strain. Dr. David Butler-Jones, Canada's chief public health officer, recently voiced this concern by saying, "Quite honestly, nobody knows at this point whether Tamiflu will be effective at all when we face a pandemic. We may have wasted the money that we bought all this Tamiflu for."

In "What You Need to Know About the Bird Flu," readers will learn the following:
