Are you planning on surviving the Bird Flu Pandemic? There is no reason to panic. There are actually some pretty simple cures.

Let’s first understand what the problem is by defining its’ parts. First of all, a pandemic is an outbreak of a disease on a global scale. The bird flu or avian flu is a flu caused by influenza A viruses that occur naturally among birds.

When a new avian influenza virus emerges for which people have little or no immunity, and for which there is no vaccine, we can have a bird flu pandemic. The disease would spread very quickly person-to-person, cause serious illness, and would swiftly go around the world affecting most of the population as it goes.

No one knows when the next influenza pandemic will happen or how serious it will be. However, once a pandemic starts anywhere in the world, we are all at risk throughout the world. In this day of global travel and a world economy -- we are virtually helpless to stop the virus from reaching us, no matter what border closures or travel restrictions are applied.

Currently health professionals are very concerned about the spread of the avian H5N1 virus that is currently in eastern Asia and other countries, feeling that it poses a significant threat to becoming the bird flu pandemic we have all heard about. They may have serious reasons to be concerned because this particular virus is expecially virulent

  • being spread by migratory birds
  • being transmitted from birds to mammals and some humans, and
  • continuing to evolve like other influenza viruses,

More than half of the people that have been infected by this virus have died and there is a growing number of people being infected. So far, though, there has not been a sustained human-to-human connection – but that may be short lived.

Pandemics tend to come and go in waves, with each wave lasting for six to eight weeks. Because a severe bird flu pandemic could cause death, economic, and social disruption on a high level the impact could be far reaching. Consider that schools, businesses, and government services would be interrupted to such an extent that it would be very difficult for even basic services to operate, including food delivery to stores.

This is where I would suggest that people should consider having a minimum of three months of whatever they need, including food, water, medicines etc. on hand in their home to survive – and now is the time to do it – not when the pandemic is here. Consider this as well --- a huge percentage of the population of the world will need some form of medical care. Can you visualize how quickly the medical facilities will be overwhelmed as well as creating a shortage of supplies?

So who do you think will get the needed vaccines and antiviral drugs for a bird flu pandemic when the supply will be woefully inadequate? It makes me think that you better consider ways that you can make your own bird flu preparation and take care of yourself and your family. Depending on the government is not the wisest choice.

Until a new pandemic influenza virus actually emerges AND is identified, there is no such thing as a vaccine to take care of it. It will have to be produced after we know what we are dealing with. However, many governments are addressing the problem in a number of ways.

  1. The development of pre-pandemic vaccines based on current lethal strains of H5N1
  2. Increasing the vaccine production capacity
  3. Extending or expanding the existing supply
  4. Doing research to develop new types of influenza vaccines.

While these are commendable procedures, the vaccines being developed to provide a way to deal with the problem MAY NOT work. In fact, the H5N1 virus is resistant to two antiviral medications commonly used for influenza - amantadine and rimantadine. There are other options with two other medications called oseltamavir and zanamavir, but they still need to be proven effective

Solutions That Will Work

I think there are solutions that work without resorting to vaccines that may not work. But they entail being prepared on our own. I have already made reference on this website to a silver product that I think has huge potential to protect anyone that cares to look after themselves.

If taking some form of silver product makes you a little nervous, there is a herbal remedy product that also has good promise. Called Immunity Plus, it contains several herbs that have been proven to promote a healthy immune system and may help keep you from getting bird flu.
