How Natural Aids Can Lessen Your Chance of Contracting the Pneumonic Plague

We’re picking up where we left off: an outbreak of Bubonic plague is occurring in Madagascar and the island of Seychelles off the coast of East Africa.  The plague turns into pneumonic plague as it migrates into the lungs and causes pneumonia and a host of other respiratory problems.  The causative organism of plague is the bacteria Yersinia pestis, and it is transmitted primarily by vectors (in this case fleas) from infected rodents to human beings.  That is the normal route of transmission for the bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death during the Middle Ages, where 1/3 of the population of Europe died.

The thing with this “offshoot” of the plague is that it can be transmitted just by sneezing on someone.  Airborne transmission is occurring, where droplets from the infected individual’s coughs, sneezes, and mucous fluids carry the bacteria and spread it.  If a person sneezes on the wall, and later another person touches that wall with their hand?  Such contact can transmit this pneumonic plague.

In the previous article, we covered some standard pharmacological treatments for this pneumonic plague.  Now we’re going to over some herbal supplements you may wish to stock up on.  Why?  Well, if the plague goes out of control and there’s a shortage of pharmaceutical medications, that is one reason.  Another is that if the S hits the fan, the plague will increase both in severity and in the geographic locale.  It will spread.  The symptoms of pneumonic plague are increased body temperature/fever, weakness, and severe headache, as well as coughing and sneezing.  The symptoms usually manifest within 1 to 6 days from the time the person has been infected.

The best medicine is preventative medicine.


First on the list is Garlic, also known as Allium sativum.  Garlic kills the plague bacteria.  Here’s one source for your perusal:

Garlic builds the immune system and destroys free radicals which (if you research the archives) are responsible for oxidation, the process that destroys cells and causes aging.  Allicin is the active ingredient in garlic that is antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal.  Take it during your day with a meal, in gel cap form.  If you have problems with clotting or post-surgery, consult your doctor first, as garlic tends to diminish clotting and thin the blood.

I wrote about Garlic in previous articles, and it is good for both upper and lower respiratory tract infections.  It goes right into the bloodstream, and as it circulates in the lungs, will travel directly to the source of the infection in the case of this current outbreak.

“Garlic has the broadest spectrum of any antimicrobial substance that we know of – it is antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antiprotozoan, and antiviral.” – Dr. Tariq Abdullah, August 1987 Issue of Prevention Magazine 

Vitamin C

For more information on this read up on any of the writings of Dr. Linus Pauling, a researcher who showed just how many ailments from the common cold to severe viral and bacterial infections can be prevented or reversed with Vitamin C.  5,000 to 7,000 mg of Vitamin C is a good guideline to follow with infection.  Don’t worry about the nonsense you may hear on overdosing of this vitamin: it is a water-soluble vitamin, therefore any part of it your body does not need it will excrete through the urine.

Vitamin E

Is very important for tissue repair, and it also helps to decrease recovery time in patients recuperating from illnesses and surgeries. Taking Vitamin C concurrently with Vitamin E potentiates the latter’s helpful effects.

Let’s also not forget protein.  I wrote until I was blue in the face on the importance of high protein diets, regarding recovery from exercise and from illness.  I stand by it.  It would behoove you to have a good protein powder for use as a medical adjunct in nursing a family member back to health.  It does not have to be taken in milk and can be mixed with water.

Regarding pneumonic plague, the main phrase to remember with homeopathic aids is palliative-preventative: boost the body’s immune system and strength, and take supportive measures standard with any sickness.  The proper diet, rest, and supportive measures hold true.  The antibiotics mentioned in the first article hold true for your first-line therapy.  The Garlic, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Protein can be taken as a regular part of your diet and will function for preventative purposes.  They can be increased if infection should occur, along with rest, a good bowl of chicken soup, and plenty of fluids.  Do not leave out the importance of hydration and electrolytes.  Stay in that good fight, and fight it each day!  JJ out!

    have a look and do research into thieves Oil, can buy it do as I did and many others, Buy the Oils and make your Own, for you and your family, like I did, smells great
    Look into the history of when the plague was happening and millions were dying, authorities noticed thieves were still out and doing what they do without getting sick, they wore those bird like masks and had a rag with Thieves Oil in the snout so the pathogen didn’t get them

    • Dace Liepins says:

      I keep thieves’ oil at work to smell when getting stressed. Will explore further

    • That was, of course, before Young trademarked thieves.

      • Yoda Dunbar says:

        Please go and take your meds

      • Yoda Dunbar says:

        You can have all the mosques, etc you like we have the most High God, His Son and the Holy Ghost, we don’t need anymore than that
        We pray for your soul to find true salvation, it won’t be granted by terror or intimidation, by pure repentance, get on your knees and ask for forgiveness and to repent, when you do that get back to me, there is more on salvation, you are not ready for the rest

        There are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe – without swords, without guns, without conquests. The 50 million Muslims of Europe will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades.

      • Yoda Dunbar says:

        Guess you have forgotten the crusades, what is it with you people, the World is amazing, yet your kind seems hell bent on making it like it is where you came from, hell Holes, and that is why you are fleeing, instead of being grateful to a Nation for helping you and your kind out, you are angry, all the time too, why so angry? Compare your false entity, he calls for World domination, beheadings, raping little children and women, imposing taxes on those who won’t convert, slavery, the list is long of the abominable thoughts and wished of your entity, whereas our God, tells us to do nothing, he gave us free will, he wants us to love one another like brothers and sisters, he doesn’t want anyone raped, esp children, in the Bible he clearly says, suffer the little children to come unto me. You are on the wrong side of history and faith, let go of the past, stop threatening everyone, let alone getting so offended all the time. Thus ends my communication with you, I wish you well, and can only hope and pray you wake up to the truth before it is too late, there is no 72 virgins waiting, boy what a sales pitch to get ugly angry young Men to commit suicide bombings

        It’s a conquest like never before. Conquest of Europe and Canada and then of USA and Australia. European and Canadian don’t need visa to go to USA and Australia. Europe and Canada will be a stepping stone to USA and Australia.

      • Philosopher Deplorabilis says:

        We see you. We know who you are. And you are not welcome.

      • raj says:

        Once Europe and Canada become Muslim majority USA and Australia will be next. There is no stoping this. Usa is already getting flooded with South American and Mexican immigrants. This will make the conquest of USA easy.

      • Philosopher Deplorabilis says:

        Good. The sooner someone nukes Mecca and Medina, the better. It can’t happen soon enough.

      • Craig Escaped Detroit says:

        I lived much of my life along side a place known as “Dearbornistan” (Dearborn, Michigan)… home to a very large muslim population inside America.
        I only escaped from there, about 5-10 years ago. I know quite a lot about Muslims, and their religion (read some books about it to understand it better), and yes, Islam is EVIL. Most people raised in that religion are SOOo brainwashed, they will never be safe on any planet.
        But Nuking Mecca? I always thought it would be better if some intellience angency introduced the “pilgrims” (Mecca) to some kind of genetic triggered virus that would either kill or sterilize all the Arabs, but only after they’ve had time to go back home and re-infect all the Arabs who did not go to Mecca that year.
        If somebody came out with a sterilization virus, triggered to various “Muslim” populations, then after about 50-80 years, that evil religion would die from extinction.
        Another “peaceful” alternative, would be to create a VIAGRA pill that also guarantees to produce only MALE offspring (the Arabs and all other Muslms LOVE to have baby BOYS…so they’d gladly use such a pill, and the results would be the same.
        Extinction from lack of females.

    I was doing some reading about “non pharmaceutical” (natural)
    antibiotics and cures for various diseases, and yes, I found “thieve’s
    oil” etc.

    Curing or preventing Plague, some natural compounds
    DO fight the bacteria (as well as some compounds also combat-cure,
    spirochetes and other “parasitic” infections (MALARIA)!

    Sweet Annie (Artemisia Annua) cures Malaria and the bugs don’t get resistant to it.

    Olive leaf extract… Oregano Oil… Cat’s Claw and “Kalanchoe
    Pinnata” (Air plant, life plant, Cathedral Bells, Katakataka) should all
    be in your “home kit”.

    I found a Clinical study about the “life
    plant” that showed how it dissolves kidney stones in about a month
    (study showed 87% of patients with stones no bigger than 10mm all gone,
    and the other 13% of patients, had stones reduced in size).

    This plant also has strong curing qualities against ulcers, internal and external infections.

    I’m finding a lot of comments from users of Oregano Oil and from Olive
    leaf users how it fixed “GERD” (acid reflux), UTI’s, IBS, etc.

    Another UTI beater, is “D-Mannose” (a natural sugar that humans don’t
    absorb), but it binds strongly to E-Coli (which causes about 90% of all
    UTI’s), and you “pee it away”. After about a week of taking this,
    (every 2-3 hours), all the bacteria are just “car-jacked” and carried

    Garlic concentrate is another good one. Read up, stock up.

    I almost forgot to mention, (found in my research-reading) that bacteria colonies often produce a slimy protective coating (called a “BIO FILM”), that insulates them against treatments.
    There are different bio-film, needing different compounds to fight them.

    One commonly available compound (found in coconut oil, human breast milk, etc) is generically called “Monolaurin”. (Gycerol Monolaurate?)
    I found some clinical tests, showing PETRI dishes with “bacteria cultures” treated with Doxycycline alone, Monolaurin alone, and then a combination of the two.

    It’s the combo that really knocked out the bacteria far better than the antibiotic by itself.
    Search and read about “bio films” (and Amazon sells several “bio film” fighters.

  3. Craig Escaped Detroit says:

    I’ll have to keep you guys “posted” about my UTI (infection) that so far, has resisted 5 different antibiotics! (Bactrim, Cipro, etc, and lastly, -Keflex). My urine had been cloudy, and this was my ONLY symptom (but the LAB tests proved there is an infection), but NO painful anythings. I may have had this for years?
    Anyway, the urine cleared up on day-6 of the Keflex, and stayed clear for SIX days, but got cloudy again on day 7.

    So I started the treatment with D-Mannose every 3 hours, (for a week, along with “Sweet Annie” 4 times/ day, and 1000mg of garlic every 3 hours, and 500mg of Vitamin C every 3 hours, and the infection still did not clear up.

    So NOW, I’m starting with a BIO-FILM fighter (Monolaurin), and Oil of Oregano caps, and Olive leaf extract caps, and Sweet Annie caps, every 8 hours. Let’s see if I can knock out this infection without anti-biotics.

    I wonder if the bacteria have produced a protective coating (bio film), and that’s why I bought the Monolaurin. I’ve read SO much good stuff about the Oregano oil and Olive leaf, that I had to try it.
    I’ve read how Sweet Annie (the one that cures Malaria), also treats some TICK diseases when those bacteria are in the “spirochete” form.

  4. Strider73 says:

    Already taking garlic and vitamin C (also D, which boosts immunity). Apparently time to start on vitamin E as well.

    Since Madagascar and the Seychelles are islands, the plague could be contained if air and sea transport to them is ended. (Several nations have already canceled air service to Madagascar.) The question is, does the rest of the world have the will to quarantine the affected islands until the plague burns itself out?

  5. There seem to be two very important lipid soluble vitamins missing from the list.
    Vitamin D3 is required for the health of the immune system, regardless of what else one is taking. Vitamin K2, preferably MK-7, is required to insure that the calcium that D3 mobilizes gets back into the bone instead of the arterial plague. Don’t forget that there are 8 types of vitamin E.
