Natural Protection Against The Ebola Virus

Natural Protection Against The Ebola Virus

There is currently no vaccine and no specific treatment available to combat the Ebola virus, though several experimental vaccines are being developed. Since western medicine has shown promise in dealing with diseases such as polio scientists are pursuing developing a vaccine to combat the ebola virus and little research is being done on reducing the risk of being infected with the ebola virus or minimizing the harm done after infected with the Ebola virus.

Little or no attention is given to the natural immune-strengthening nutrients and phytonutrients found in plant-based life. Economics comes into play as to why these plant-based approaches are not being researched. There is little to no money to be made promoting the readily available God given plant life that may be helpful in combating the ebola virus.

Ebola outbreaks happen within malnourished populations which has led people to study possible connections between nutrient depletion and the Ebola virus. I am a firm believer that the body wants to stay in a state of homeostasis and wants to heal itself.

Homeostasis is a state where all of the body’s organs and functions are operating at their optimal level, and the proper nutrients are needed for the body to stay in homeostasis. When we keep our body’s saturated with these nutrients and phytonutrients we make it difficult for disease to exist in the body.

Protect Against The Ebola With Kinase Inhibitors Genistein and Tyrphostin.

In 2012 researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch, investigated the potential therapeutic role of two kinase inhibitors in interfering with Ebola virus: the plant compound genistein and the pharmaceutical drug tyrophostin. The article “Inhibition of Lassa virus and Ebola virus infection in host cells treated with the kinase inhibitors genistein and tyrphostin,” published in the journal Archives of Virology supports a:

“…kinase inhibitor cocktail consisting of genistein and tyrphostin AG1478 is a broad-spectrum antiviral that may be used as a therapeutic or prophylactic against arenavirus and filovirus hemorrhagic fever…”

The authors reference a previous animal study that found both genistein and tyrophostin individually inhibit the entry of these viruses into the cells by interfering with endocytosis (the process by which a cell pulls in a virus) and uncoating proteins (the process by which a virus alters proteins on the surface of the host cell to gain entry). It was also observed that a synergistic effect occurred when genistein and tyrophostin were added together.

How To Get Genistein Naturally

Genistein is found in greater concentrations in legumes and the greatest concentration in soy. Chickepeas (garbanzo beans) are also a good source of genistein but not as good as soy.

I do prefer chickpeas because overall they are a better legume than soybeans. Soybeans are a heavily genetically modified crop which compromises its structure and benefits. Genistein is also found in other plant based life such as clover seeds, caraway, sunflower, broccoli, cauliflower, red clover and other medicinal plants.

Potential Natural Ebola Virus Therapies

  • VITAMIN C THERAPY: Vitamin C therapy expert Dr Robert Cathcart, MD stated the Ebola virus kills
    “by way of free radicals which can be neutralized by massive doses of sodium ascorbate intravenously.”

    Ebola and other viral hemorrhagic diseases in general resemble acute scurvy in that is depletes vitamin C, and scurvy is caused by vitamin C deficiency which results in bleeding throughout the body. Along with Vitamin C being able to combat the scurvy like symptoms, vitamin C supports and strengthens the immune system, and has antiviral properties.

  • GARCINIA KOLA: Was reported in 1999 to halt the deadly Ebola virus in its tracks in laboratory tests. Article 1, Article 2
  • ESTRADIOL: The study published in PLOS, “A Systematic Screen of FDA-Approved Drugs for Inhibitors of Biological Threat Agents” found that estradiol exhibited anti-Ebola virus activity in vitro, indicating the relevance of hormonal factors and perhaps gender in susceptibility to the disease.
  • SIX-EYED SPIDER VENOM (SICARIUS) REMEDY: A homeopathic treatment for Ebola haemorrhagic fever based on the treatment for being exposed to the venom of the Sicarius spider. The Sicarius spider causes symptoms of envenomation similar to the Ebola virus and is thought to be of potential use against the Ebolavirus.

About Author:

I obtained a Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University. I eat a plant based diet and I am an avid researcher of the benefits of a whole food, plant based alkaline diet. I obtained a BA in Organizational Behavior and Communications from NYU, worked as an elementary school teacher, and have studied social work. I am a web designer/developer and I enjoy boxing, kick boxing, cycling, power walking, and basically anything challenging. Eating a plant based diet and exercising is a great way to achieve healthy living. ~ Natural Life Energy
