what causes Flu
Non Painful Diseases
Influenza is a virus that can cause “the flu.” Does it belong to
us as humans or to a larger parasite we are hosting? It is easily
transmitted from person to person and in less than a year can
spread across the planet. Some flu examples are Influenza A, B,
C and Swine flu.
However, much that is called “flu” is actually caused by a
bacterium, either Salmonella or Shigella. If someone in your
family is “catching” a flu, test their saliva for the presence of
dairy products, implicating the Salmonellas and Shigellas. Also
test for influenza A, B, and C. Children's “flus”, especially when
there is a fever, are usually due to Salmonellas. Even after
zapping it can take an hour for the symptoms and fever to go
Go straight to the refrigerator and throw away all dairy
products. Throw away all milk, cheesecakes, buttermilk, cream,
butter, yogurt and cottage cheese, deli food and leftovers. You
may wish to identify the food source of your family's bacteria
first, and save the uncontaminated food. Use the sick person as a
subject, searching for foods that appear in her white blood cells
(or search their saliva sample for the food offender). If the flu is
“going around” your neighborhood, you might wish to tell
some of your neighbors which foods you found were contaminated.
They may have purchased the same food! Obviously, when
a contaminated shipment of dairy products arrives in your
grocery stores, quite a few people will be consuming it, setting
the stage for a “bad flu” that “goes around”.
Why can some people eat contaminated food without getting
sick? Maybe their Salmonellas don't multiply rapidly. Maybe
their stomach acid is strong enough to kill most of them. Maybe
their bowel movements are frequent enough to expel them
quickly. Maybe they haven't been on frequent treatments with
anti-strep antibiotics. The answer is not known yet. After a serious
bout with Salmonellas or Shigellas the body does not completely
clear itself of them. They stay in hiding somewhere. When
a new batch of bacteria arrives, even though very sparse, as in 1
tbs. of milk, the two subtypes can hybridize and produce a much
more vigorous offspring. This is called virulence. You are made
much sicker by more virulent subtypes of bacteria. You may have
diarrhea, vomiting, illness. Especially if you believe you have
“lactose intolerance,” pay attention to Salmonella and Shigella.
If your flu is due to an influenza virus, kill it with your zap-
per. Some family members may prefer to take a homeopathic flu
“remedy” such as OscillococcinumTM or Flusolution.TM Others
may take herbs. These probably act by prying the viruses out of
your cells' gateways and channels so the white blood cells can
easily devour them.
But flu due to Salmonella is not easily zapped away. Remember,
the zapper current does not penetrate the bowel contents,
which is exactly where Salmonella lives! Besides zapping
to clear them from your tissues, you must eliminate them from the
bowel by using the Bowel Program (page 546).
Lugol’s iodine solution (see Recipes) can quite quickly get
rid of Salmonella throughout the body. Use 6 drops (small drops
from an eyedropper) in ½ glass of water four times a day. If no
more Salmonella is consumed, it will be vanquished in a day or
If your flu brings you a fever, use Lugol’s.
