(NaturalNews) The degree of morbidity from West Nile virus infected mosquitoes is low. According to the CDC, only around one in five humans infected get sick. That sickness is usually a nasty bout with the flu, but one in 150 who are infected can be affected more seriously with pneumonia, paralysis, or death.

Then there are some scientists and health writers who are demanding proof that the West Nile virus even exists. According to them, the actual virus has never been isolated. Maybe that's why Big Pharma can't even come up with a bogus vaccine or specific remedy.

Whether this virus is real or not, it's a good idea to avoid mosquito bites. West Nile virus is not contagious among humans. Evidently, mosquitoes carry it from infected birds that they've bitten, even as those birds are dying. Besides, mosquitoes are capable of carrying any disease that infects via blood.

Avoiding mosquito bites

In some areas, usually tropical, mosquitoes are out during daylight as well as night time. But usually, they like to hunt warm blooded mammals at night. There are two reasons attributed to their nocturnal activity.

One reason is there is often less breeze and wind at night. They are light enough to be adversely affected by any breeze. The other is they rely on infra-red ray detection of thermal differences between their prey and the environment. If all is warm, they'd be confused.

These mosquito activity schedules inspire two obvious remedies: Unless your dwelling is sealed off completely, have fans on, especially in your bedroom. If you go out at night, try to have your body covered with clothing, but whatever body parts are exposed should be coated with a natural repellent.

Avoid repellents containing DEET of any amount. It's toxic to all life, including yours. Alternative natural, non-toxic to human insect repellents that are effective include: Eucalyptus oil, neem oil, catnip oil, soy oil, lemon oil, citronella and lavender oils.

There is at least one commercial insect repellent, maybe more, containing lemon and eucalyptus oils. But if you use your own essential oil, dilute it with distilled water and spray it on. The concentrated essential oil may be too harsh. Here's more on natural insect repellents. (

Boosting your immunity with Vitamin D3 is a must. It's an immune system hormonal regulator. The flu season occurs when most of us have the least sunlight exposure to bare skin, which is the primary source of our vitamin D3.

So it's important to supplement liberally unless you can manage to get lots of direct sunlight onto exposed skin. (

Increase probiotic intake. The gut is an important part of our immune systems. Probiotic intestinal flora (bacteria) are not just for digestion, which is essential for good health. Those friendly bacteria also function as triggers for releasing antigens elsewhere in the body.

So more probiotic intake is needed unless you're eating fermented foods and drinking real, homemade kefir. (

Echinacea should be used to prevent colds and flues, not just taken after getting sick. Vitamin C should be taken daily since your body can't manufacture it. If you come down with a case of any type of flu, Elderberry tinctures or syrups have proven more effective than Tamiflu, and without side effects.

Less stress and more rest are immune system builders also. A healthy lifestyle and diet that excludes fast foods, and processed foods contaminated with GMOs, toxic additives, oils, and sweeteners will help your immune system resist infectious diseases naturally.
