H5N1 avian strain expected to become next viral pandemic

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

The World Health Organization is to be applauded for its efforts to try to ramp up product of vaccines to protect people from the coming flu pandemic. Despite their best intentions, however, the world isn't ready for such a viral outbreak. Should such an epidemic actually occur soon, millions of people will likely be killed while waiting for vaccines. There simply isn't enough flu vaccine production to go around.

Smart consumers will turn to immune boosting strategies that rely on boosting their flu immunity rather than vaccinations. A tremendous number of anti-viral vitamins, minerals, Amazon herbs, Chinese herbs, and nutritional supplements are available right now to boost immune system function and fight off viral infections (including the H5N1 strain). As far as vitamins and minerals go, the two best defenders against viral infections are vitamin C and zinc. In the world of herbs, echinacea and astragalus have earned a strong reputation as virus fighters. A wide assortment of foods also help boost immune system function: foods like garlic, ginger and onions.

In fact, surviving the next pandemic need not depend on vaccines at all. Healthy individuals can survive the pendemic merely by dramatically boosting immune system function and supplementing with anti-viral herbs as well as powerful antioxidants like astaxanthin.
