Greatest Weapon Against Swine Flu (H1N1)
published in July 2009
The following letter was sent to our complete mailing list and we feel
it is imperative that we post it so that it may be available to all.
Through this letter and professional references given as footnotes, the
reader will quickly realize that the prevention and cure - even in
extreme cases - of the Swine Flu (H1N1) and most any flu, for that
matter, lies in the understanding the function of vitamin D-3 -
available from drug stores or just by judicious exposure to the sun.
It is a tragedy how those who manipulate the world masses for private
gain hide this information which is available to all - if "all" knew
where to look for it.
All we ask of you in return for placing this treasure in your hands is
that you share it with as many people as you are able to.
May the Peace of God be upon you!
On July 16th, 2009, (1) we published a
from a professional in cell/molecular biology (who has been a frequent
visitor to our pages) addressing the issue of the H1N1 virus and how
vitamin D3 could be used as a powerful preventive measure against
contracting it or quickly overcome its effects if one is in danger of
death. In reality, the measure seems to be applicable to any other flu
We asked him to prepare a brief to-the-point report backing such claims
with research reports so that we may share it with our readership. We
would also share it behind the scenes, giving his full identifying
professional credentials, with official health care professionals in
third world countries. Below we reproduce the information that Dr. IW
shared with us in the "for our readers" format.
Please Note: We are
not pretending to take the place of
your physician; we are only sharing research results associated with
vitamin D3 and the flu. We do recommend, however, that if you feel that
your physician is totally in the dark about this - something that few
would admit to - you should share this information with him/her.
I was aware that during the SARS
ill patients were in many cases stabilized and given the chance to
recover by administration of prednisone, and to the extent that this
represented a truly effective treatment (admittedly undecided at this
point, and thank God there were not enough cases to establish it
definitively), it meant that a major contributor to the pathology of
SARS was inflammation of the lungs, consistent with an over-reaction by
the immune system, out of proportion to what is necessary to clear the
This also seemed similar to the pathology of the 1918 influenza
pandemic, and some of the anecdotal reports of deaths from the current
H1N1 strain, where progression from minor symptoms to death can occur
within 24 hours, seemingly not long enough to incur massive viral lysis
of lung cells. Vitamin D is known to have some of the same
anti-inflammatory properties, and deficiency is linked to childhood
asthma (2), suggesting that it may play a role
in the pathology of influenza also.
Influenza is a seasonal disease, most prevalent during winter, which is
often explained as being because the UV light, heat, or humidity of
summer inactivates viruses more quickly.
It may instead be because winter is a time when most people in northern
countries are deficient in vitamin D. When researchers looked at
vitamin D levels in patients in the United states, they found
widespread deficiency (3), and concluded that
for supplementation are inadequate to address the deficiency.
When the same group of researchers studied the incidence of upper
respiratory tract infections, there was an inverse relationship between
vitamin D deficiency and those infections (4).
These papers were covered in the popular press (5)
The relationship between deficiency in solar radiation and flu was was
first suggested by R. Edgar Hope-Simpson in 1981, and a recent paper (6)
identifies vitamin D as the factor induced by solar radiation. This
was accompanied by a narrative from the physician who made the initial
observations and involved scientists to develop the paper (7),
where the strongest case is made, both scientifically, and by linking
known facts, that vitamin D deficiency is the key factor that
predisposes to influenza.
That last link makes the case most comprehensively, and now that I have
discovered it, I realize it was there before I came to the same
realization. The author states that he and his colleagues have
experimented on themselves and their families and found the results
very persuasive, although tainted by bias.
I can share the same observation: For many years I have suffered
non-stop colds, flu, and secondary infections and coughs long after
shaking the initial bug. I live in [edited out], New York, and
sunshine can be limiting here, especially in winter. Last spring
particularly rainy and my symptoms lasted into July when I started
vitamin D3 at 4,000 units per day. The results were very quick
last winter was my first without upper respiratory infection. My
children have had the same benefit, and when sick recover very quickly
if given vitamin D.
Also useful is the well documented Wikipedia entry on Vitamin D (8),
especially regarding dosing and establishing maximum doses. Consensus
opinion is that the maximum doses should be set at 2,000 units per day
rather with a maximum of 10,000 units per day for two or three days as
"shock therapy". In any case, we recommend that the family
physician should be consulted if in doubt.
The information about fatalities in the H1N1 outbreak is lacking, but
one thing that comes up again and again is that there was some
underlying immune problem, usually auto-immunity, allergy, or other
over-reaction of the immune system, as opposed to AIDS, for example.
This spring has been cool and rainy in much of the world, implying
conditions unfavorable to people receiving vitamin D from sunlight.
I would like to suggest that all the facts point to a key role of
vitamin D in making the outbreak of H1N1 the very mild infection seen
in most patients, and not the severe immune over-reaction seen in the
small minority that are killed by it.
