UPDATE. Help! I Think I Have Ebola!

Ok, I may be being a little dramatic. I'm not bleeding out of my eyes anyway. Looking to get some relief. I've tried tea tree oil, Thieves, peppermint oil, steamy shower, honey, and generic Theraflu. It hurts to cough. My lungs are on fire and I feel like I'm going to cough up my esophagus.


I know you guys are just dying to know if I made it through the night. Well...I did. I finally decided to go to the doctor. Turns out I have bronchitis and an ear infection. She started me on some Amoxicillin and ordered me a bottle of cough syrup with codeine. Looking forward to posting tonight after a large dose of that stuff! Lol!

Thanks for all your help. I am going to stock my cabinet with some of these recommendations. I'm usually good about being able to care for my ailments with vitamins and essential oil but for some reason I was unable to take care of this one.

Thanks again! Love to you all!

I wish I was feeling better.

I wish I was feeling better. I did finally make it to the doctor. We'll see if she comes through.

So during your "lungs feeling

So during your "lungs feeling on fire", did you decide to test your endurance by not getting any help?

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

a Sept, 1999, Article, "A folk remedy for killer Ebola" says...

"Scientists may have found a cure for the deadly Ebola virus in a plant extract used in traditional African medicine, writes Clare Sansom."

Read the rest of the article for more info @ http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/news/a-folk-remedy-for.... It is interesting read about Garcinia kola seeds and worth a read.

Garcinia kola is also known as Bitter Kola and can be purchased at Amazon.com for under $50. Check it out.

I voted you up, but your link doesn't work: fixed here


It it possible, I suppose, that Daily Paul code removed the ".article" at the end, so I'll also make a link to it, here.

Edit: nope, Daily Paul code didn't remove it, both my links work.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

On second thought,

On second thought, even though you may be on the mend, since death is inevitable anyway, I now think you should quit procrastinating and throw in the towel. I mean why not just get it over with? ;-)

Seriously, you will want to start taking some good probiotics after those antibiotics. I think it's good to take several different ones. Prescrip-Assist, Flora Balance, Custom Probiotics' 11 strain and Five Lac are the ones I use. Active fermented vegetables such as Bubbie's sauerkraut are beneficial as well.

I use VSL3

It costs around a dollar per capsule, generally, and you want to take 4-8 for rough times, and 1-2 daily for maintenance. So it's not the least expensive solution, but man does it work -- well, and quickly.

I haven't tried the others you mentioned. I would note, though, that VSL3 comes packaged with a freezer-pack, and it should be kept refrigerated to keep the cultures alive. If a competing brand doesn't do that, then I would imagine that it's not quite as effective.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

That one looks pretty good

That one looks pretty good too.

All the ones I mentioned, except for the Custom Probiotics, do not require refrigeration, which is very handy. SBOs do not require refrigeration to remain potent. I think with the 5 Lac, the enteric coating keeps it fine at room temp. That said, I wouldn't order any of these in summer when they're likely to be killed by the very high heat.

Colloidal silver......

I'm sure a lot of people on DP have invested in silver. Well, with two 99.9% silver coins, two alligator clips and an old cell phone charger, you can have a quart of colloidal silver in about 30 min. Youtube it!

Excellent idea

I use 3 d batteries for one my colloidal silver machines,I have made 2 other versions to date,one using a charger,and the other using radio batteries
I bought the rods online a few years ago

One more thing I forgot to mention in my comment further

down this thread. Take one or two teaspoons of Braggs Organic, raw, unfiltered, Apple Cider Vinegar every day. Some people dilute it in a glass of water. Me? I'd sooner get it over with and just down it straight.

Hi, deacon! That's good to know. I was wondering if

there was another company that sells it. Do the Amish market and distribute it to health food stores? Braggs is the only one I've even seen.

Good luck with making your own. Maybe you can market it, too.

I personally know

some amish folks here,I buy all kinds of things from them,and they have re-taught me things i knew before.
we have a farmers market here,and they sell their products,but also teach ones who want to learn,most don't,but I DO
I wouldn't go so far as marketing,but i would sell to some who know what they are getting.
Hey, I see you brought a friend unto the DP,good job.

What does Apple cider vinegar

What does Apple cider vinegar do?

It's got to be the kind in the comment above

and, in your case, used in combination with the other things people posted here. (I would strongly recommend using the products I mentioned in my comment below, as well. I still think you need to see a doctor, though.)

See this thread on Braggs:

Edit: Oops! Just saw that you updated your post and went to the doctor. Good!

good one

That has helped me in the past. I also recommend Wellness Formula. Theraflu only works if you take with within the first 48 hours of the start of symptoms. It works by disrupting the reproduction of the flu virus. The first three days of a flu are rapid reproduction, and the rest of the time your body is dealing with the after-effects.

Get some hot chili peppers

put them in your sink and start to de-seed them. Breathe in the fumes...guaranteed to clean out anything in your lungs or sinuses.

To continue our discussion from a while back,

someone put wasabi in my food, without my knowing. Whoa! Holy shit! I thought my brains were going to explode all over the place. But, I recovered and my sinuses were all cleared out. LOL

Now, breathing in the fumes from chili peppers is something I might try. Just won't eat them.

wasabi would work; hadn't thought about it, but that stuff is lethal.

Spiced hot Rum

Drink a coupe shots before bed. You will feel better. For awhile.

Money talks and dogs bark

Get your house in order.

Just kidding.Go to a clinic and get a C-pac if ill for more than 5 days.

Money talks and dogs bark


"Get your house in order." Love the optimistic vibe to that! ;-)

There are somethings you could smoke to get some relief.

But the best thing for you is a healthy diet, full of lots and lots of raw vegetables, tea w/raw honey, raw milk, lean meat, and more raw vegetables. Every color of the rainbow. A diet like that and in about a week you won't be sick for longer then 1 day.


Smoking anything doesn't seem

Smoking anything doesn't seem like the right thing to do. Sounds painful!

Maybe so. the smoking stuff is just folk medicine...

But a good healthy diet full of micro nutrients is what the body needs to heal itself.
