Brew Some Honeysuckle Tea To Fight The Flu

0-191284167-fotolia-53683897-subscription-monthly-m

Chinese researchers have discovered what they are calling the first ‘virological penicillin’ – a powerful anti-viral derived from the sweet smelling honeysuckle plant.

Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) is widely used in Chinese herbal medicine, and has been used to effectively treat influenza infection for centuries.

Several previous studies have confirmed that the herb, usually consumed in the form of a tea, can suppress the replication of influenza virus. However, the active anti-viral components and the mechanism by which they block viral replication have remained unclear.

Now, a team of researchers headed by Dr Chen-Yu Zhang of Nanjing University in China has identified MIR2911, a naturally occurring molecule found in quantity in honeysuckle, as the first active component directly targeting various influenza viruses, including the swine flu H1N1, highly pathogenic avian H5N1 and H7N9 infections in an animal model.

MIR2911 stops the virus from replicating thus, say the researchers honeysuckle tea may represent a new effective therapeutic strategy that can be used to subdue deadly infections.

“It is important to note that since Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin nearly a century ago, antibiotics have been developed to target various bacterial infections and have saved the lives of millions of people,” the scientists wrote in a paper published in the journal Cell Research.

“Unfortunately, no natural product that is effective against viral infection has been identified thus far.”

“We suggest that as the first natural product to directly target influenza A viruses, MIR2911 is the ‘virological penicillin’ that serves as a novel therapeutic and preventive agent against not only influenza A, but potentially also other types of viruses.”

    Q: I am curious about the anti-viral regimen and how exactly it works on viruses. In the product description it states that every other product only "suppresses" the herpes type 1 and 2 virus, therefore having the virus remain hiding in the cells and not providing a cure. If one undergoes the regimen, following the diet etc., will the virus be completely eradicated from one's system? Or again, does this regimen only suppress the virus as well? P.S. IF it does eradicate the virus completely, will it be eliminated after the 20 day period?

    A:

    Herpes can be eradicated after completion of both kits (Full Body Cleanse and Anti Viral Kit) with strict adherence to our dietary regimen. Both cleanses detoxify the blood and the other eliminative channels to help flush viruses, infections, and toxins out of your system.

    Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, our products and cleanses work to heal naturally from the inside-out. This means there are no harmful side effects, and does not mask any symptoms. Holistic healing can eliminate viruses and allow you to live freely and confidently.

    Q: Hi. I am very interested in pursuing your detox (both the full and anti-viral, one after the other as it is recommended) however I am a little bit confused. In the actual product description, it states that all other products available only "manage" viruses such as herpes, meaning that the virus still remains in the body. It states that Dherbs helps to eradicate all viruses. It also states in the Q and A it is guaranteed that one will test negative for herpes after the treatment (if it is followed correctly). However, all the articles on your website talk about changing one's lifestyle etc to help CONTROL the virus and therefore prevent outbreaks and that the anti-viral kit can help in the preventing outbreaks (but again that means the virus will remain in the system). SO....I am wondering what the actual potentials of this product and regimen are. If followed with the raw food diet for 6 weeks (3 weeks on the detox and 3 weeks on the anti-viral) will the herpes virus be completely eradicated from one's system so that medical tests will show negative results OR is this regimen just another way of managing the virus, while having it still remain in the system.

    A:

    The Full Body Cleanse and the Anti-Viral Cleanse can help cleanse and detoxify your entire system to help you heal from Herpes. Every person responds differently to the cleanse, depending on the toxicity of your body.

    Q: I have been told that I have a viral infection (tropical spastic Para paresis) caused by the htlv1 virus. It gives me the same symptoms as a person with multiple sclerosis. Does your ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN work for all types of viruses? I started a raw vegan diet 3 months ago. I feel a little better but I am looking for additional information.

YES, ALL OUR CLEANSES WILL HELP YOUR CONDITION INCLUDING THE ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. HOWEVER, JUST REMEMBER HEALING IS A WHOLISTIC APPROACH WHICH MEANS DIET IS INVOLVED, LIFESTYLE CHANGE IS INVOLVED, CHANGE OF THOUGHT PROCESS IS INVOLVED, ETC.

    Q: MD wants the infant to take penicillin twice a day as a preventative measure against infections, because child has been diagnosed with sickle cell. Is there a natural substitute for penicillin? Also you mentioned using intention for person to change the sickle cell disease; both parents have sickle cell trait, so can the parents use this "intention" to rid themselves of the trait and not have concern about any other children having the disease. Please let me know. Have you worked with anyone that has been cured of sickle cell and we really need something so this child will not have crisis and complications that go along with the disease.

    Q: I was wondering if anyone has actually tested negative for viral infections (such as herpes or aids) and whether it is a normal result to be considered "virus free" after completion of your detox. Or is it is just like any other detox where it "may help u feel better" by releasing certain toxins but really leaving the virus in your system.

    A: Yes, in many cases, after completion of the Full Body Cleanse or the Anti-Viral Cleanse, there are many customers that are completely virus-free. It is important to stick to the guidelines of the Cleanse in order to achieve the best results.

    Q: I purchased and fully used your ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Unfortunately I don't feel as if it has eliminated the current virus within my body. I was diagnosed with Herpes about 8 years ago. Since using your product I have not had an outbreak, however I still have the symptoms that accompany it. This would be the aching in the legs, hip, or pelvic area. I am in dire need to relieve myself from this virus once and for all. What is your take on this and is there something else that I must do?

    A:

    If you feel you have not eliminated the virus then you still have it only because you claim it. Your symptoms are not those of genital herpes but something else. Clearly not herpes! To really get my take on matters I suggest you schedule a 1-hour consultation. Please read all 4 herpes articles on our site

    Q: Hello, I want to purchase your ANTI-VIRAL FORMULA for my herpes, but before I do let me give you some background. I have had this since I was 19 and I'm 21 now. I have outbreaks every month around my menstrual cycle. Also, I'm constantly applying abreva to my lips several times daily. I take valtrex but it doesn't help. I have changed my diet and nothing helps. Is there anything else you recommend taking with this anti-viral product? Thank you I hope to hear from you soon.

    A:

    I suggest you read our â€GENITAL HERPES (HSVII)†article on our site under Articles. If you feel nothing helps, check your MENTALITY. Doubt cancels out healing. So does worrying and skepticism. Read the article â€THINK YOURSELF HEALTHY†You can heal, Beloved. Changing your diet, did you go all raw foods and give up meat and dairy products? Around your menses, drink FEMALE HEALTH TEA. Bathe in hot water and sea salt (2 boxes) and add in 2-3 drops of essential oil of Clary sage and Geranium (available at Whole Foods). There's so much you can do! At some point, perform our FULL BODY DETOX followed by our ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN.

    Q: Can the ANTI-VIRAL FORMULA be taking while pregnant?

    A:

    Taking the formula while pregnant is not recommended as it can be a risk. The herbal capsules are too potent for women to consume while with child. We suggest trying the Anti-Viral Liquid Extract or the Anti-Viral Tea to help assist with viruses while pregnant.

    Q: Please let me know if the Anti Viral Kit is a one time 20 day regimen? I mean does it only take one kit to be eradicated?

    A: Every individual is different. Depending on your condition, you may need to perform the Anti-Viral kit more than once to continue to help eliminate toxic substances in your body. On the other hand, you may only need to perform the Anti-Viral Kit one time. Every person's body responds differently to the cleanse.

    Q: I go out of town Saturday the 23rd. I complete my anti-viral kit mon. the 24th. I am also staying out of town thru Thanksgiving at relatives. There will be traditional dinner (turkey, etc.) I will not be able to take my test after I finish this kit on the 24th because I will be out of town. What do you suggest? But then Christmas is coming....more food and relatives. What is your suggestion? Should I start over from scratch after the holidays? My other question is....I see now there is a green cell food regimen, should I FBD, green cell kit and then anti-viral kit? What do you think is best for me to get optimal health and results?

    A:

    Abstain from cleansing if you are going to eat holiday food. keep it real! I would suggest performing in this order: FULL BODY DETOX, ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, and then 10-DAY ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD CLEANSE. Work on your mind too (see NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL coming next week).
