Here’s How You Know If You’re Protected From The Measles

worried-man-measles-in-bed

For the average American adult, the measles is viewed as a condition of the past. The widespread vaccination of the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine was said to have eradicated the virus around two decades ago in the year 2000. Last week, however, marked the second-largest U.S. measles outbreak in twenty years, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There have been 139 confirmed cases in Rockland, New York, 329 cases in Brooklyn and Queens, and several other cases have been reported in Washington, California, New Jersey, and Michigan.

 

With click bait article headlines circulating the web, people are left wondering how dangerous the measles is. Who is at high risk? Can you still contract the measles if you received the vaccination as a child? Some people, who recently contracted the virus, were vaccinated as children, but improper vaccinations can make you susceptible to the virus because of how contagious it is.

 

What Is The Measles?

Caused by the rubeola virus, the measles is an infectious disease that can spread like wildfire. Someone with the measles can cough, sneeze, or talk, and infected saliva drops become airborne and land on surfaces, where they remain active for hours. Roughly 90% of unvaccinated people who come in contact with the virus will become infected. Because the bacteria remain active for hours, it can be difficult to understand where and when you came in contact with the virus. After becoming infected, a number of health complications can occur.

 

Symptoms:

Symptoms of the measles may not appear for about one to two weeks after coming in contact with the virus. In the time before one develops symptoms, that person can spread the virus to other people. The initial symptoms of an infected person are most commonly water eyes, coughing, high fever, and runny nose. Tiny white spots eventually appear in the mouth before the measles rash breaks out. The measles look like tiny red spots that can turn into raised bumps.

 

How Do You Know You’re Protected?

It can be hard to discern whether or not you are protected because people who were vaccinated may still be at risk, especially if they have weakened immune systems. The CDC says that people who were vaccinated twice are about 97% effective at preventing measles. Those who received one dose are about 93% effective. In order to help protect yourself from contracting the measles, follow the tips below.

 

Vitamin C Supplementation:

According to research, vitamin C has been shown to protect against the measles virus, when taken in doses as high as 1,000 milligrams every six hours. That same study found that administering 1,000 milligram doses every two hours during the beginning stages of a fever and first signs of Koplik’s spots helped to rid the person of measles symptoms. While there are many natural sources of vitamin C, you may want to opt for a natural vitamin C product to ensure you are satisfying the necessary intake.

 

Get Your Vitamin D:

People who are deficient in vitamin D are more susceptible to developing the measles because their immune systems are often too weak to fight the measles virus. Vitamin D helps to strengthen the immune system, enhancing your ability to naturally fight viruses. Make sure to get about 30 minutes of sun exposure a day and eat mushrooms, one of the best food sources of vitamin D. You can also accompany your vitamin D intake with vitamin A consumption because vitamin A helps protect uninfected cells by stopping the viruses from rapid multiplication.

 

In a nutshell, we advise you to naturally boost your immune system to the best of your ability. People with high-functioning immune systems are less likely to become infected. If you do become infected, however, your immune strength may help them avoid complications.

    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 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: I recently went to the hospital and I thought I had the virus in the hospital the nurses were very negative towards me. I was given bad medication and as a result I had all the symptoms of the virus when I left the hospital and I am still testing negative and I feel like they have given me bad meds to try to kill me. I don't look the same every time I drink something that has acid in it, it makes my skin turn red and now when I go out I feel that everyone with the virus know what the hospital has done to me people just laugh knowing that the hospital nurse gave me a HIV cocktail. What can I do? I have been to the doctor numerous times and it seems like every thing I touch has germs and it’s getting inside of my body. I was treated really unfair. Now in the community where I live also.

    A:

    IF THEY DID SLIP YOU A HIV COCKTAIL, HERE'S WHAT I SUGGEST: PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX AND DRINK DETOX TEA WHILE DETOXING. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS. FOCUS ON POSITIVE THOUGHTS ONLY. NO NEGATIVE THINKING!

    Q: Hello, I have the herpes virus that occasionally causes me to get a cold sore about once a year. I eat very healthy i.e. no dairy, fried foods, red meat etc. What do you recommend as a cure for this virus. I don't want to take something that will make the virus continue to stay dormant in my blood stream but something that will completely kill it out of my system so I never have an outbreak again. I'm certain there is a remedy that exists. My belief is that God has created a natural cure for every disease. Can you help, thanks?

    A:

    We have a very potent Anti-Viral Kit & Regimen that can help eradicate herpes from the body (especially if you perform the Full Body Cleanse before or after the Anti-Viral kit) and build the immune system to prevent future outbreaks.

    Also, read our article entitled "Genital Herpes" under "Articles" on our site.

    Q: If an individual tested positive for a virus, with no past or prior symptoms, should he/she still take the products mentioned to eradicate the virus from the system?

    Q: If I have herpes symptoms could I take just the virus cleanse by itself to get it out my system, opposed to taking the other products as well.

    A:

    If you have herpes like symptoms you should go get tested for the STD before starting the anti-viral cleanse. In the meantime we suggest starting with the Full Body Cleanse to eliminate the waste and toxins that can be contributing to the condition. After doing the full body cleanse your body will be in a better state to heal from the virus if you are suffering from one. We would suggest doing the Anti-Viral Cleanse followed by the 10 Day Electric Greens Combo Regimen if you test positive for virus.

    Q: Hello. I was wondering if you could help me. In April of 2007 I contracted urethritis. I was treated with antibiotics and everything was fine. Then around 3 weeks later I was re-infected and treated again but this time the pain has not gone away. I have been on antibiotics for 4 months straight and I can not get rid of this. My body is run down and I am in constant pain. Some of my symptoms include weak or no erection, itching in my penis, lower abdomen pain, burning in the urethra, burning when urinating. My urologist can not help me and I don't know what to do. Taking the medication helps but if I get sexually aroused then all of the symptoms return. I'm lost but I know that I can fight this off. Can you help me with some insight as to what can help? Also recently I feel like the infection has spread to my anus(due to constant itching) and I have not been sexually active since all of this has started.

    A:

    I would recommend that you perform or Full Body Detox and fast. It will greatly help you

    .

    Personally, I would not take the medication. It's creating your problem with yeast. Drugs cannot help you, only harm you.

    Also, while detoxing, take the Male Health tea to help restore optimum activity in that region!

    You will be alright after you do the necessary things! Stay positive! Healing is yours!

    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: I read one article that stated she did not have the virus anymore (herpes) because her pap smear was negative; however, the rap smear does not indicate if one has the virus or not, it is the blood test that shows a positive or negative. My question: Do the products eliminate the herpes virus...yes or no?

    A:

    No! The product or any product we sell does NOT eliminate the virus. For more understanding on herpes, please read the following articles which can be found in our articles section: "GENITAL HERPES (HSVII)" "IS GENTIAL HERPES REALLY CURABLE?"

    Q: I've come to your website many times in the past few days and I would like to start ordering some products to begin detoxing my body and to rid my system of the herpes simplex virus and any other std that may be lingering within. I was diagnosed with this virus on 12/5, but since then I have been given amoxicillin by the doctor. After doing some research, I bought some Olive Leaf Extract, L-Lysine and Echinacea with goldenseal. I feel a lot better, especially since I began to stop eating certain foods, like cheese, pork, peanuts and chocolate. I've also been maintaining a positive attitude and believing that I will be free of this virus. I am extremely interested in starting a cleansing ritual beginning at the end of the month, but at current, I would just like to begin with a supplement you would recommend to cleanse my blood, my genital and vaginal area. Your recommendations will be deeply appreciated.

    A:

    If I had to recommend one product before your Anti-Viral Kit for you, it would be Dherbs STD-RID formula.

    Q: I have also heard some discouraging things about the antibody blood test for HSVII, and how its not as accurate as testing for lesions. But, I had herpes for about a year, so I know my body had enough time to generate antibodies for the virus. Therefore, when I did the regimen the antibodies went away. But I guess my question is, Just because antibodies go away, does that necessarily denote that no virus is present; or in other words antibodies only are present in response to the virus in my body? I just want to make sure that these issues are not something that should be given greater attention. Please help....Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks.

    A:

    I'm not really into the whole antibody thing with herpes, but using western logic, no anitbodies = no virus present! You're! fine! You're experiencing some residual healing effects. But don't focus on this thing to long because what you worry about you create. Read the Mental Science Manual Beloved!

    Q: I purchased 100.00 in organic herbs. Chapparal leaf, poke weed, psyllium husk powder, Pau d'Arco Bark. I purchased these herbs because my husband exposed me to the virus. I did not want to use traditional drugs to kill the virus. The only symptoms I have is the crescent moon under my eyes. I am 61 years old. My husband is African and refuses to use protection to prevent illness. Are they safe in small quantities?

    A:

    The herbs are safe in small quantities and actually all quantities as herbs are 100% safe!
