Essential Oils for Biological Warfare Preparedness
Dr. Len Horowitz and Dr. Sabina Devita
Back in the days of the Black plague, and last century's devastating influenza epidemic, a significant percentage of people survived. Even with the more recent Ebola virus outbreaks, this ideal biological weapon kills nine-out-of-ten people within three weeks of infection. Yet, ten percent survive. The question is, "Why?"
What makes survivors of biological attacks different from deceased victims is their natural constitution and solid immunity. Modern science teaches that you can, in fact, enhance both. For instance, the health and function of your DNA critically depends on water hydration, particularly of special Clustered Water molecules that fuel the double helix's electrical potential for optimal cell function and longevity. For more information about Clustered Water, see the online store at http://www.healingcelebrations.com. Likewise, your immunity can be naturally bolstered myriad ways.
A great example of one natural, God-given, and Bible recommended, antibiotic ideally used to resist the plagues of yesteryear, and today, including biological weapons attacks such as Anthrax and smallpox, is essential oils.
Did you know that during the great plague in Europe in 1413, a small band of thieves were captured in Marseilles, France, and charged with robbing the dead and dying bubonic plague victims? Although this "Black Death" (Pasteurella pestis) was highly contagious, not one of this morbid band of thieves ever contracted the disease.
The king, eager to protect himself and the Royal family, demanded to know how the thieves had avoided the plague. Related by blood to a lineage of apothecaries, the thieves were familiar with a combination of specific plant oils that when rubbed over their bodies, protected them from contracting this most feared and deadly disease. They rubbed a concoction that included clove, rosemary, and cinnamon on their hands, ears and temples. This same formulation found in the Royal English Archives is available today from Young Living Essential Oils called the "Thieves" oil blend.
Ancient scriptures are filled with references to aromatic oils. In fact, 188 references to oils are made in the Bible. Frankincense, myrrh, spikenard, and cassia are repeatedly mentioned throughout the Old and New Testaments used for anointing and healing. Dr. Jean Valnet, one of the world's foremost authorities on the therapeutic uses of these oils, points out that the powerful medicinal value of essential oils were known for centuries and were considered more valuable than gold and prized for healing and anointing.
We, therefore, highly encourage the purchase and use of natural essential oils that have been developed for life-saving applications by naturopathic physician and humanitarian, Dr. Gary Young. During a recent meeting, Dr. Young presented his concerns and suggestions regarding the need to prepare for biological warfare in the United States in the aftermath of recent terrorist attacks and the retaliatory bombing in Afghanistan.
Here, in summary, are our recommendations:
Since we believe that the current global crisis likewise reflects warfare taking place on at least six other spiritual dimensions, we urge devout prayer and meditation for protection, peace, and global healing at this critical time. We believe that the power of prayer and fasting can make a huge different in accomplishing these outcomes. With this objective in mind, and heart, we will be joining Dr. Young, and thousands of others, in fasting every Wednesday. Water and juice fasts are recommended.

Garlic and Other Natural Anti-Anthrax Weapons
Colleagues Have Circulated the Following Natural Preventives and Treatments for Anthrax and other Bio/Chemical Threats
I am passing this on to those of you I know to be diet conscious, as well as those of you in areas that are affected by Anthrax scares. I send it in the spirit of good health.
NATURAL RESCUE REMEDIES (for anthrax, nerve gas, etc.)
Since anthrax is the most feared toxin it will be addressed first. The Garlic Information Center in Britain indicates that deadly anthrax is most susceptible to garlic. Garlic is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that even blocks toxinproduction by germs. [Journal Nutrition, March 2001]
Before vaccines were developed against polio, garlic was used successfully as a prophylactic. In one test garlic was found to be a more potent antibioticthan penicillin, ampicillin, doxycycline, streptomycin and cephalexin, some of the very same antibiotic drugs used in the treatment of anthrax. Garlic was found to be effective against nine strains of E.coli, Staph and other bugs. [Fitoterapia, Volume 5, 1984]
Freshly cut cloves of garlic or garlic powder may be beneficial. The antibiotic activity of one milligram of allicin, the active ingredient in garlic, equals 15 units of penicillin. [Koch and Lawson, Garlic: The Science and Therapeutic Application, 2nd edition, Williams & Wilkins, Baltimore 1996]
Garlic capsules that certify their allicin content are preferred and may provide 5-10 milligrams of allicin, which is equivalent to 75-150 units of penicillin. The anthrax bacterium's toxicity emanates from its ability to kill macrophage cells which are part of the immune system. Studies have shown that sulfur-bearing antioxidants (alpha lipoic acid, N-acetylcysteine, taurine) and vitamin C, which elevate levels of glutathione, a natural antioxidant within the body, counters the toxicity produced by anthrax. [Molecular Medicine, November 1994; Immunopharmacology, January 2000; Applied Environmental Microbiology, May 1979]
The above sulfur compounds can be obtained from health food stores and taken in doses ranging from 100-500 mg.
Vitamin C should be the buffered alkaline form (mineral ascorbates) ratherthan the acidic form (ascorbic acid) and should be combined with bioflavonoids which prolong vitamin C's action in the blood circulation. The powdered form of vitamin C is recommended to achieve optimal dosing. A tablespoon of vitamin C powder (about 10,000 mgs) can be added to juice. Good products are Twinlab's Super Ascorbate C powder and Alacer's powdered vitamin C.
A great sulfur Is MSM. I have used it for taking out swelling and pain almost instantly from everything from oral surgery to bee stings, spider bites (it seems to neutralize the venom) to poison oak/ivy, to chicken pox, herpes cold sores, and in lotion for burns, skin conditions. It enhancesvitamins and escorts toxins out of the body. I took it in small amounts at first, like a pinch of salt, and now take one pill or capsule a day. The reason for this is that if it starts taking too much of the toxins out at a time it can make your heart beat fast or possibly have a reaction which some people call allergic. For me, a little is best. (You can call Rich Distributing for MSM at great prices, toll free: 877-245-5742 for healing products in Oregon).
Melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone available at most health food stores, has been shown to help prevent lethal toxins from anthrax exposure. [Cell Biology Toxicology, Volume 16, 2000]. It could be taken at bedtime in doses ranging from 5-20 mg. Melatonin boosts glutathione levels during sleep.
Of additional interest, one of the methods by which mustard gas works is its ability to bring about cell death by depleting cell levels of glutathione. [Medicine Journal, April 9, 2001] So glutathione is also an antidote for mustard gas poisoning.
Virtually all bacteria, viruses and fungi depend upon iron as a growth factor. [Iron & Your Health, T.F. Emery, CRC Press, 1991] Iron-chelating (removing) drugs and antibiotics (Adriamycin, Vancomycin, others) are effective against pathogens. The plague (Yersinia pestis), botulism, smallpox and anthrax could all be potentially treated with non-prescription metal-binding chelators. For example, iron removal retards the growth of the plague. [Medical Hypotheses, January 1998] The biological activity of the botulinum toxin depends upon iron, and metal chelators may be beneficial [Infection Immunology, October 1989, Toxicon, July, 1997].
Phytic acid (IP6), derived as an extract from rice bran, is the most potent natural iron chelator and has strong antibiotic and antioxidant action. [Free Radical Biology Medicine, Volume 8, 1990; Journal Biological Chemistry, August 25, 1987] IP6 has been found to have similar iron-chelating properties as desferrioxamine, a drug commonly used to kill germs, tumor cells or to remove undesirable minerals from the body. [Biochemistry Journal, September 15, 199! 3] IP6 rice bran extract (2000-4000 mg) should be taken in between meals with filtered or bottled water only (no juice).
The antibacterial, antiseptic action of plant oils has been described in recent medical literature and may be helpful in fighting biological toxins. [Journal Applied Microbiology, Volume 88, 2000] A potent natural antibiotic, more powerful than many prescription antibiotics, is oil of oregano. One study showed that oregano completely inhibited the growth of 25 germs such as Staphylococcus aureas, Escherichia coli, Yersinia enterocolitica and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. [Journal Food Protection, July 2001] Oregano has been shown to be effective in eradicating intestinal parasites in humans. [Phytotherapy Research, May 2001] Wild oregano, which is quite differentfrom the variety on most kitchen spice racks, has over 50 antibacterial compounds. Just one part wild oregano oil in 4000 dilution sterilizes contaminated water. [London Times, May 8, 2001]
Oregano powder from whole leaf oregano is available as OregamaxTM capsules (North American Herb & Spice Co.). A spectacular development in natural antibiotic therapy is the manufacture of oregano powder from 100% pure oregano oil, producing one of the most potent antibiotics known. It has recently become available under the trade name OregacinTM (North American Herb & Spice Co.). It costs about $1 per pill, but this is a far cry from the $16 per pill for Vancomycin, known as most potent prescription antibiotic.
Oregano oil can also kill toenail fungusand allows nails to grow back in normally and release that awful foot smell and yellow thick skin.
Nature also provides nerve gas antitoxins. Nerve gas interrupts the normal transmission of nerve impulses by altering levels of acetycholinesterase, the enzyme that degrades the nerve transmitter acetycholine. Huper zine A, a derivative of Chinese club moss, has been suggested as a pre-treatment against nerve gases. [Annals Pharmacology France, January 2001] The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research conducted studies which revealed that Huperzine A protects against nerve gas poisoning in a superior manner to physostigmine, a long-standing anti-nerve toxin.drug. [Defense Technical Information Center Review, Volume 2, December 1996] Huperzine A is available as a food supplement at most health food stores. Suggested dosage is 150 mcg per day. Pretreatment is advised prior to nerve gas exposure.
The threat of biological warfare is real and concern over preparedness of the civilian population and medical professionals is growing. There is virtually no practical way that vaccines, antibiotics or other treatment can be delivered to a frightened populace in a timely manner during a crisis. The current strategy of having an unprotected citizenry travel to physicians' offices or hospitals to receive prophylactic care or treatment is unfeasible.
The public must be armed with preventive or therapeutic agents in their vehicles, homes and the workplace. Natural antibiotics and antitoxins are well documented in the medical literature, but overlooked by health authorities. These antidotes are readily available for the public to acquire and place in an emergency biological response kit.
