Diet: First Line of Defense Against Flu

By Wednesday, 09 November 2016 04:31 PM Current | Bio | Archive

One of the grand illusions perpetuated by the vaccine manufacturers is that vaccines are the answer to preventing infectious diseases, such as the flu.

Vaccines increase antibodies against a particular strain of microorganism, but our main defense against infections is not antibodies.

Rather, cellular immunity (special immune cells such as neutrophils, macrophages, lymphocytes, and monocytes) is our primary defense against infection.

These cells are the early responders to infection and do most of the killing. And vaccines can actually suppress cellular immunity.

Your main defense against infections, which can have both positive and negative effects, is your diet.

Diets that include a lot of meat, especially beef, supply large amounts of absorbable iron, which can worsen infections and increase free radical damage.

High levels of simple carbohydrates and sugar feed bacteria, suppress immunity, and stimulate free radical damage by increasing advanced glycation end products (AGEs) in tissues.

We see high levels of AGEs in people with diabetes. Diets high in sugars and simple carbohydrates are also a major cause of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

High intake of nutrient-dense vegetables (cruciferous vegetables), along with some fruits and spices can reduce one’s risk of infections.

Many of the flavonoids in plants inhibit viral replication and therefore prevent viral infection of cells. They are also quite potent anti-inflammatories and strengthen tissue barriers to microorganism invasion.

People should eat at least 10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. However, be warned that the fruits are high in sugars, so should be eaten only in limited amounts. I prefer to blenderize the vegetables for maximum absorption.

Liquids help flush out poisons from the tissues, improve blood flow, and protect the kidneys. In the south, many people drink sweet tea (iced tea).

This is made from a black tea, which has high levels of aluminum and fluoride. Adding lemon to your tea greatly increases aluminum absorption.

I would advise that people drink either white or green tea. These have very low levels of aluminum and fluoride, and higher levels of tea polyphenols (catechins), which bind and reduce bacterial and viral growth.

They also directly inhibit the flu virus.

Water should be either filtered or distilled. I prefer to use a distiller that distills and also removes volatile contaminants by a carbon filter. You can then add a capsule of magnesium citrate/malate to the water, which will reduce fluoride toxicity and reduce inflammation.
