Natural Rescue Remedies for Anthrax

Vitamins/Nutrition

Vitamin C

Many nutritionists consider vitamin C to be the single most important supplemental nutrient for maintaining a strong, efficient immune system and recovering from infections.

Vitamin C strengthens the immune system. It is a critical nutrient when you contract an infection. It reduces the resistance of antibiotics to bacteria. Vitamin C is important for the proper functioning of white blood cells. It is very effective against infectious diseases. It is an important supplement for the management of anthrax and against bioterrorism. More. -->

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a critical Vitamin in enhancing immunity. It plays a key role in maintaining the integrity of all the epithelial surfaces in the body, such as the skin, the lining of the respiratory tracts and digestive tracts. These surfaces are the first to be exposed to external environment and foreign invaders such as anthrax or other biological agents.

Vitamin A, used as a preventative nutritional therapy, is important for preventing complications of anthrax and other biological agents. If you have contracted the disease, the body's need for vitamin A will increase substantially; so extra supplementation will be needed to maintain body's defenses. Use Vitamin A supplementation as a Complementary treatment if you contract anthrax or are under biological attack. More -->

The Carotenoids and Beta Carotene

When people eat diet rich in carotenoids, they derive benefits from the carotenoids' antioxidant qualities. Carotenoids are very powerful antioxidants, whereas vitamin A is only a mild antioxidant.

Carotene is an important nutrient in boosting immunity. It is a potent antioxidant. It also appears to help protect us against many forms of cancer. More -->

Vitamin E

Vitamin E has a documented effect on supporting immune cell activity and increasing resistance to infections. It both enhances and protects the immune system. More -->

Selenium

The importance of selenium in thwarting viral infections is illustrated by the fact that a number of deadly viruses (such as HIV, Ebola, etc.) have emerged from regions in Africa such as Zaire, which appear to be selenium deficient. Due to the important immunity implications of selenium as well as its role in preventing the mutation of viruses, selenium is an important trace element that plays a significant role in the fight against biological agents released by bioterrorists. More -->

Coenzyme Q10 (Co Q10)

CoQ10 functions as a powerful antioxidant, much like other antioxidant nutrients, such as vitamins C and E. It has beneficial effects in treating infections and against deadly bacterial infections. We believe that Co Q10 is a great Complementary therapy for bioterrorism. More -->.

Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Twenty are required in human health, and eight of these are considered essential nutrients because the body cannot make them. Several amino acids are important in immune system.

Lysine is an anti- infective amino acid. It boosts the body's production of antiviral agents.

Carnitine  works closely with CoQ10 and transports fats into the mitochondria. Infections appear to deplete carnitine levels. Carnitine supplementation restores the immune response. 

Several glutathione-containing compounds are involved in immunity, detoxification of hazardous compounds, and quenching free radicals. Glutathione also enhances the activity of the white blood cells. More -->

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)

Pyridoxine activates many enzyme systems in the body. It also assists in the absorption of vitamin B-12 and aids immune system function.

Vitamin B6 deficiency can lead to depressed immunity by a decrease in the number and activity of lymphocytes, and a decrease in antibody production. More --->

Alpha-lipoic Acid

Antioxidants such as alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl cysteine, and taurine and vitamin C that elevate levels of glutathione, are found to counter the toxicity produced by anthrax. More -->

Zinc

Zinc is a major protector of the immune system and an important disease fighter. It is essential for immune system function carried out by the white blood cells. More -->

Flavonoids (Bioflavonoids)

Numerous studies have shown that people eating high- flavonoid diets have a lower-than-average risk of developing heart disease and cancer. These nutrients also enhance the activity of white blood cells and boost the body's defenses against a broad range of bacterial and viral infections, from urinary tract infections to HIV. More -->

Colloidal Silver

Colloidal Silver is a clinically proven, powerful natural antibiotic. It is believed to kill over 650 different disease-causing pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungus and yeast). Colloidal silver was used widely from the time of Hippocrates until around 1938 when the use of synthetic antibiotics became popular.

Silver in both liquid and airborne-aerosol has been known since 1887 to be extremely toxic to Anthrax spores. Although there is no clearly defined dosage, silver is known to be quite safe and so it would be wise to err on the higher use side if you suspect that you have been exposed to anthrax. More. -->

Bee Propolis and Honey

Modern research has verified several antibacterial applications of honey and propolis. These substances provide a potent preventive against biological agents. More -->

Melatonin

Melatonin has been shown to help prevent lethal toxins from anthrax exposure. More -->

Iron Chelators

IP6 has been found to have similar iron-chelating properties as desferrioxamine, a drug commonly used to kill germs, tumor cells or to remove undesirable minerals from the body. More -->
