Respiratory Virus Hits Kids In The US

Most likely everyone with kids has heard of the outbreak of respiratory illness spreading like wildfire in the U.S.:

A respiratory illness that has already sickened more than a thousand children in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem, doctors say.  
The disease hasn't been officially identified but officials suspect a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is related to the rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.  
According to Mark Pallansch, director of the Division of Viral Diseases at the CDC, similar cases to the ones in Colorado have been cropping up across the U.S. At least 10 states -- Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Georgia -- have reported suspected outbreaks of human enterovirus 68 and requested CDC support. (

So I have some recommendations on things you can do to boost your immunity and prepare for the possibility that your child will bring this virus home.

My recommendations to prepare for this include:

1. True Colloidal silver (NutraSilver is one of them) start taking it as a preventative but it can also be used to treat it.... it can kill MRSA and staph. The only other true colloidal that I know of (not just ionic silver which is pretty clear liquid) that I may recommend is MesoSilver, although it is not as potent as NutraSilver.

2. Dr. Christopher's Super Garlic Immune blend. This stuff has been called the "Anti-Plague" remedy and you can make it yourself if you want to -- here is the recipe.

3. Detoxing the body so that if exposed, your body can fight the virus a lot better. My detox foot pads can help with this. They are easy to put on children and because of the small size of their feet, usually one foot pad can help detox their whole body!

4. Bone broth. Make sure you have healthy, organic bone broth ready to make (freeze some bones and veggie cuttings so you can make them if your family starts showing symptoms). Store bought bone broth WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE.

5. Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Magnesium, Zinc and other antioxidants -- keep them on hand! These can be used as immune boosters, and then double the dose during the illness (for up to a week) to provide support.

6. Essential oils in a DIFFUSER. (I am not a certified aroma therapist so I cannot tell you that it is ok to ingest or put on a child -- some are dangerous for young kids and babies and I do not know which ones). I would use a Thieves/OnGuard blend but also any other anti-virals that you have, and diffuse them throughout the house.

7. I personally love Miracle II's neutralizer, as it balances the pH and is so easy to take, you just put a few drops into liquid. it is clear and doesn't taste like anything, so kids can easily take it.

8. Remove all sugars and cut out processed foods and most grains during illness... (mainly gluten and corn). Drink lots of fluids.

9. Elderberry syrup. You can make gummy candies (healthy!) for your child to eat out of elderberry syrup

10. Manuka Honey. This is a bit expensive but a little goes a long way and I bet it won't be hard to get your kids to eat this!

There are other things you can do to help with the easing of the symptoms if your child does get this virus. Specifically for the cough and lung congestion. There are herbs, bentonite clay poultices that you can put on your child's chest, and different essential oils or homeopathic remedies that can help acute symptoms.

But remember, this is a virus and antibiotics won't work on it, so unless your doctor feels that a bacterial infection has occurred, please avoid antibiotics. And if your child ends up on antibiotics, remember to replenish the good gut bacteria for best results.

Good luck and stay healthy!
