Zone 6B or 7 can't decide
Antibiotics won't hit a virus. You must mean vaccine. I never take a flu shot, never have and never will. I prefer to stay as healthy as I can and while I have a few anti virals, I am going to step it up.

I have sida rhombifolia growing here, it is antiviral.


I dug up a Mullein plant a couple of years ago and now have 5 plants growing here.

Green sweet gum balls are antiviral and there are trees here.

There is a wild stand of echinacea near by

I want to make a herb garden for medicinal purposes. I have herbal books that tell how to make tinctures, and how to use herbs and weeds.

Modern medicine is a marvel and a wonderous thing, I am not discounting it at all. There are some things that even modern medicine can't touch, so why not educate ourselves? Maybe we can help our own selves and others too.
Your right (as usual) Bay :)

I remembered reading about this several years ago and looked it up again. "Cytokine Storm" is a condition where the body fights so hard to kill the invading virus that it turns on the body also.


and this:
Best foods to take to reduce the risk of cytokine storm in pandemic flu:

Green tea
Black tea
Peanuts
Raisins & red grapes
Resveratrol supplements
Capers, fennel
Kale
Apples with skins
Quercetin supplements
Pomegranate juice
Red wine
Turmeric (esp cooked w/ black pepper) (500mg-4000mg daily)
Black pepper
Raw crushed garlic
Red palm oil
Vitamin E
Coconut oil
Vitamin C
St Johns Wort
Skullcap tea
Cats Claw
Tea Tree (2 drops tea tree oil in a bowl of steaming water, cover head and inhale for 5-10mins)
Astragalus Root
Tulsi Root


The following, while beneficial in other ways, May not be a good idea in terms of reducing cytokine levels

Olive oil
Fish oil
Chocolate
Vitamin D (unless in very high levels – 5000mg/day)
Elderberry Juice (use only for regular flu)
Honey
echinacea
