West Nile Virus

More Mosquito Madness:
The West Nile Virus

By Dr. Donald Liebell

  
   It’s bad enough that we have the infectious diseases spread by ticks… we’ve got West Nile virus, spread by mosquitoes to worry about too.  And we should! The Dallas epidemic (August 2012), which left 10 known dead is a good enough reason for concern.  I’ve been frequently asked what can be done to deal with West Nile virus, and thus I’ve written this article.  If you are like me, and most people in our area, you are plagued by mosquito bites.  The ominous specter of West Nile virus looms over us, as this nasty, illness-causing microbe “rears its ugly head” in the summer, and into the fall.  Birds are the most common victim of the virus, which is known to be transmitted by mosquito bite.      

   According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), West Nile virus does NOT cause symptoms in a whopping 80 percent of people infected with it.  It is suggested that people older than 50 are more at risk.  I think what the Centers for Disease Control really means is that people who have weaker immune systems are at higher risk to be affected by West Nile virus, since the aging American population isn’t exactly the healthiest group of people on the planet. 


    Symptoms of West Nile Virus

   The CDC suggests that only approximately “one in 150 people infected with West Nile virus develop severe illness.”

   Such serious symptoms, which can appear flu-like include:

   High fever       Headache        Neck Stiffness            Stupor or Disorientation       Coma               Tremors

   Convulsions    Muscle Weakness      Vision Loss     Numbness      Paralysis         Fatigue           Joint Pain

   According to the CDC, these rare, but severe symptoms “may last several weeks, and neurological effects may be permanent.”  But they do report that up to 20 percent of people who become infected suffer from “fever, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes swollen lymph glands or a skin rash on the chest, stomach, and back.”  It can take up to two weeks for symptoms to develop.

   What About Treatment for Those Afflicted with West Nile Virus?

   Here’s what “mainstream” medicine is offering the public…

   NOTHING!

   Seriously? 

   Yes!  That's it.  No treatment, other than drugs for symptoms (which have no effect whatsoever on the viral infection itself) is available.  The Centers for Disease Control says, “There is no specific treatment for West Nile virus infection.” 

   We’
re told that people suffering only milder symptoms will get well on their own.  The CDC website actually says “people do not necessarily need to seek medical attention for this infection though they may choose to do so.”

   As you can see in the West Nile virus distribution map on the right, it is all over the country.  But all that the “authorities” offer you is “prevention.”  In my opinion this is laughable, as this merely suggests that you prevent West Nile virus by rarely going outside during the summer (especially in the buggy evenings)… or regularly spraying your skin down with products containing a highly questionable chemical, called DEET (Chemical Name: N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide or N,N-diethly-3-methyl-benzamide).  DEET is a known neurotoxin—it can harm your central nervous system...  yet it is government approved for your skin.

   How lovely!!

   The bottom line is that mainstream medicine (and Federal government) offers you neither realistic prevention, nor any medical treatment whatsoever for West Nile virus.  You’re on your own, as far as conventional medicine and the government agencies are concerned. 

   The choices the “authorities” give you:

  • You can “roll the dice” with daily exposure to a chemical poison… or
  • Hope you don’t get bitten by mosquitoes carrying West Nile virus.

"What Does Dr. Donald Liebell (and his family) Do to Deal With the Potential Dangers of West Nile Virus?"

   If you are not a patient of mine, or you’ve never read articles on my website, nor seen me on television… you may not realize that my wellness and prevention practices are focused on complex homeopathy.  Its purpose is to naturally and safely stimulate ones immune system to fight off illness, including infectious disease.  I do not by any means claim to treat West Nile virus; I treat the whole person with natural, preventative, and corrective treatments.  An entire series of articles on the subject of homeopathy are available on this website.

   On the other hand, if you are currently a patient, you might predict that I already have a homeopathic energy medicine formula designed to “turbo-charge” your immune system to fight off West Nile virus, among other microbes, for which mainstream medicine offers nothing.  This would be a correct assumption.

   I know I’ll be accused of sounding “like a broken record” when I state that I am not claiming to medically treat West Nile virus.  The complex and comprehensive homeopathic energy medicine products I utilize are not treatments for any disease or condition; they are natural immune system boosters, custom-made for my practice.  I am quite certain that they are effective at helping our immune systems fight off West Nile virus, and all kinds of parasitic life forms.  As countless patients of mine can attest, this whole-body, safe, natural, affordable, and easy approach has been extraordinarily effect for recovering from the ravages of illness associated with chronic Lyme disease.

   West Nile virus, like any other microbe, can be dealt with beautifully by a healthy functioning human immune system.  My job is to help people restore that healthy immune system, principally through complex homeopathy.  Nevertheless, if you have any concerns that you have contracted West Nile virus, you should by all means see your family medical doctor, or infectious disease specialist. 

   Once again, I do not claim that any complex homeopathic immune support product can “cure” you of West Nile virus.  However it is indeed the means by which patients of mine, family, and friends choose to try to prevent or overcome infection, and other illness.
