Hope For The Treatment of Latent and Chronic Viral Infections

A latent viral infection is a type of persistent viral infection in which the pathogenic virus lies dormant within the host cells. A latent infection is a phase in certain viruses’ life cycles in which after initial infection, virus production ceases. However, the virus genome is not fully eradicated. The result of this is that the virus can reactivate and begin producing large amounts of viral progeny without the host being infected by new outside virus. An example of a latent viral infection is Herpes.

Chronic viral infections are long lasting infections. Examples of chronic viral infections are HIV, and Hepatitis C.

If one has a chronic viral infection or latently infected cells, Humic Acid can offer tremendous help. Once the host cell releases the new viruses into the bloodstream the Humic Acid helps prevent the new generation(s) of viruses from attaching to the cell wall and reproducing.  This lowers the body’s viral load over time resulting in a decrease in the severity of symptoms and duration and frequency of outbreaks.

Humic Acid offers hope for those suffering from chronic and latent viral infections. Please be sure the humic acid you are using does not contain any fillers or added chemicals.

 

“Medical Aspects and Applications of Humic Substances” Regarding the Antiviral Activity of Humic Substances

Interesting research on the antiviral activity of humic acid.

“Medical Aspects and Applications of Humic Substances” Regarding the Antiviral Activity of Humic Substance

By Prof. Dr. Renate Klocking & Dr. rer. nat. Bjorn Helbig, Institute for Aniviral Chemotherapy, Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, Germany.

MULTIPLE VIRUSES INHIBITED
“Preliminary in-vitro studies with Coxsackie A9 virus, influenza A virus and herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) have already shown that (Humic Substances) are effective against both naked and enveloped DNA viruses (Klocking and Sprosig, 1972, 1975; Thiel et al., 1977).”

“Further investigations corroborate the ability of (Humic Acid) to inhibit selectively viruses for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and type 2 (HIV-2), cytomegalovirus (CMV) and vaccinia virus (Schols et al., 1991; Neyts et al., 1992).”

VIRAL FUSION INHIBITION
“With most viruses, the inhibitory effect of (Humic Acid) is directed specifically against an early stage of virus replication, namely virus attachment to cells (Klocking and Sprosig, 1975; Schols et al., 1991; Neyts et al., 1992).”

“…it appears likely that the poly-anionic Humic Acids occupy positively charged domains of the viral envelope glycoproteins, which are necessary for virus attachment to the cell surface (Neyts et al., 1992).”

HERPES
“The effect of (Humic Acids) on an early stage of herpes virus replication has been confirmed by the results of animal experiments. The number of lesions in the cornea of HSV-1-infected rabbits was strongly reduced when a solution of the (Humic Acid) was applied into the conjunctival sac of the eye along with or immediately after the infectious agent.”

“Current interest is directed to the prophylactic effect of (Humic Acids) on recurrent HSV infection.”

“It is known that topical application of (Humic Acid) may significantly reduce or even completely suppress experimentally induced herpes in the mouse ear (Durre and Schindler, 1992), though the mechanistic basis of this effect remains to be elucidated.”

HIV
“A low-molecular weight (Humic Acid) (HS 1500, M.W. = 1500 Daltons), was found to strongly inhibit HIV-1 in vitro (Schneider et al., 1996).”

NON-IRRITATING

“Studies on the mechanism of action revealed virus penetration into host cells as the target of the anti-HIV-1activity. (Humic Acid) has passed a panel of pre-clinical tests including eye irritation according to Draize, as well as pregnancy risk in rats. Neither sensitizing nor irritating effects were detectable in concentrations of up to 10% HA”
(Wiegleb et al., 1993; Lange et al., 1996a,b).

OUR CONCLUSIONS
Research indicates that Humic Acids functions both prophylactically as well as therapeutically in the treatment of viral diseases.

Humic Acid is first a preventative, because it interferes with a virus’ ability to attach to a host cell, penetrate the host cell, and reproduce itself. Scientific studies have demonstrated that if a host cell is penetrated before the introduction of the Humic Acid, the viral reproductive process within the host cell is not halted.

HOWEVER, if one has latently infected cells (i.e. those with chronic viral infections) and Humic Acid is present, once the host cell releases the new viruses into the bloodstream the Humic Acid helps prevent the new generation(s) of viruses from attaching to the cell wall, hijacking the DNA or RNA and reproducing, effectively lowering the body’s viral load over time and hence its therapeutic function for active viral infections.

Humic Acid may work for most, if not all, viral infections.  Other studies are currently on going throughout the world.

 

Notable Research – HIV

Several clinical studies have been carried out where varying doses of humic acid were administered to small focus groups of HIV+ patients in multiple countries. The results of these studies were very encouraging. Here are some of the results:
2003 HIV+ Study in USA
Test Subjects: three HIV+ Caucasian adults, ages 20 – 40 years
Dosage: 1 capsule humic acid, three times daily
Results: viral load dropped from 12,000 – 15,000 to almost zero within one month
2003 HIV+ Study in Taiwan
Test Subjects: three HIV+ Taiwanese adults, ages 30 – 40 years
Dosage: 1 capsule humic acid, four times daily
Results: viral load dropped from 16,000 – 20,000 to almost zero within two months
2003 HIV+ Study in Nigeria
Test Subjects: three HIV+ African adults, ages 20 – 30 years
Dosage: 1 capsule humic acid, four times daily
Results: viral load dropped from 15,000 – 18,000 to almost zero within two months

Notable Research Results – Immune Support

More interesting research sent to us from a health professional.
1991 Biological Sciences, Moscow

After an extensive study on humic acid conducted in Moscow, researchers concluded that pharmaco-biological tests proved humic acid was effective in warding off a host of diseases because humic acid raised the body’s immunity fighting functions. The study also reinforced other findings that showed humic acid was harmless to humans when ingested or applied topically, and did not result in any allergies or adverse reactions.
Researchers also explored the effects of large doses of humic acid on the liver and found that humic acid could prevent hepatitis, but recommended a more detailed, liver-specific study.
“Medical studies show that difficult respiratory illnesses common in children are readily resolved with humic acid dietary supplementation. Humic acid is found in rich organic soil and also certain ancient plant deposits. Humic acid has the power to protect against cancer and the related cancer-causing viruses. Studies often show reversal of deadly cancers and tumors using special humic substance therapies.”

Notable Research Results – Antiviral

2002 National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The NIH published a report titled “Broad Spectrum Antiviral Effectiveness of Humates”. The NIH studied humic acid’s virus-fighting properties for viral diseases such as gastroenteritis, influenza, herpes, chicken pox, mononucleosis and hemorrhaging fevers caused by the Ebola and Hanta viruses. Results showed that humic acid, when consumed before the virus invaded the body, was effective in presenting disease. Tests performed against multiple virus types further confirmed humic acids broad anti-viral properties.
Toxicity tests showed that humic acid bound itself to human cells but was not itself toxic, nor did it inhibit or interfere with cell development or reproduction.

Sick Soil…Sick Plants…Sick People

All naturally fertile soils contain humic and fulvic acids which are produced by the indigenous species of soil based microorganisms.  Over the span of hundreds of thousands of years, the humification (microbial digestion) of all once living matter has created this health miracle of nature. Trace elements of Humic/Fulvic acids are naturally present in water, soil, plants, animals and people.  They are nature’s core mechanism for mineralization, trans-membrane nutrient transportation and detoxification, all on a cellular level. A cell without the optimal nutrition and added detoxing abilities of Humic/Fulvic acids under performs. Cells that under- perform, creates tissues that under-perform which creates organs that under-perform.

In balanced nature, Humic/Fulvic acids are present and perform this core activity in all levels of the food chain. They are the most complex natural substances on earth.  When microbial life is inhibited or destroyed, as it is with forced chemical based farming practices, the production of humic and fulvic acids stops and the vital supplies of these compounds in the soil are soon exhausted. As far back as 1936, U.S. Senate Document 264 stated, “The alarming fact is that foods, fruits, vegetables, and grains now being raised on millions of acres of land no longer contain necessary levels of essential minerals. These foods are starving us, no matter how much we eat.”

As we go up the food chain, plants with no Humic/Fulvic acid, without their associated balanced spectrum of minerals and essential nutrients, are ingested by animals and people. Instead of receiving trace elements of Humic/Fulvic acid from the plants, that then in turn will increase cellular nutrient uptake and detoxification in the animal or person, they receive inferior nutrition. The longer these soils are used for forced chemical based agriculture the worse the sick soil syndrome becomes.   We are soon approaching one hundred years of these inferior agricultural practices, inferior nutrition and inferior detoxification.

In addition to the soils being sick from forced chemical based agriculture and thus creating sick plants, so called modern water treatments, filter out the trace elements of Humic/Fulvic acids from our water supplies and add chlorine and other toxic chemicals. This is complexly problematic as they have again removed one of the natural sources of Humic/Fulvic acid from our diet and added chlorine which further depletes our soil, plants, animals and people of the beneficial microorganisms that are at the core of our immune system.

Additionally, modern filtered water that has been forced through straight pipes is pressured into H2O clusters as high as 20 to 23 in number. This water has a high surface tension and takes energy from the body to assimilate it into its fluids.

The micro and macro trace nutrients in a high quality full spectrum Humic/Fulvic will naturally micro cluster water into pyramid-shaped molecules, (tetrahedrons) when present in adequate levels. Through the hundreds of thousands of years of cellular processing Humic/Fulvic acids have become Natures’ perfect micro structural elements to optimally stabilize water.  Water as nature intended, travels in counter rotating vortexes. This movement structures water into 1, 2 and 3 H2O molecule clusters that have a high spin electron charge. Water in this form has a lower surface tension and energetically supports the movement and vitality of all life.  This is natures’ system, refined over millions of years, to maintain the optimal conductivity and structural stability in all of natures’ living fluids; water, blood and the fluids in all living things. This structuring, of body fluids is often dramatically experienced by the majority of people who begin supplementing with Humic/Fulvic acids. They experience a healthy drop in their heart rate and a rise in their blood oxygen levels in the first month of use. This is the result of improving the bloods’ mineral content and thus its’ structure along with ability to transport nutrients in and toxins out of the cell and body.

We now have a majority of people who have been deficient in Humic/Fulvic acid for generations. The food chains’ lack of the phytochemicals, supercharged anti-oxidants, nutrients, vitamins, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, and bioavailable minerals contained in Humic/Fulvic acids, combined with the lack of cellular detoxification provided by Humic/Fulvic acids, accurately reflects the sickness of the populace. Our bodies are now generally under mineralized and overly toxic.

The answer to this long standing problem is to supplement with pure, high quality Humic/Fulvic acids, to regain the mineralization and detoxification we need in this overly toxic world we live in.

Cold & Flu Preventative

I just got off the phone with someone who, based on my recommendation, started taking a specific brand of humic acid last year. He called to thank me and to say that he had not suffered a cold or flu in over 12 months. He said he normally gets 3-4 colds per year and the flu if it’s going around. Needless to say, he’s thrilled.

In addition to its preventative and therapeutic effects for cold, flu and other viral infections, people taking Humic Acid for the first time usually report feelings of increased energy and clarity, decreased appetite or feeling satiated on less food, deeper sleep, lessening of arthritis pain or body aches and a greater sense of wellbeing.

Inflammation

Inflammation is part of a complex biological response of the body’s vascular system and is the body’s first response to an injury or dis-ease.

When the agent causing the inflammatory process persists for an extended period of time the inflammation becomes chronic. Chronic inflammation is a disease that kills and can have devastating degenerative effects throughout the body.

biomarkets-of-inflammationChronic inflammation is involved in diseases as diverse as atherosclerosis, cancer, heart valve dysfunction, obesity, diabetes, congestive heart failure, digestive system diseases, and Alzheimer’s disease (Brouqui et al. 1994; Devaux et al. 1997; De Keyser et al. 1998). It has also been linked to depression, and other age related infirmities.

Studies have shown that humic acid possesses anti-inflammatory properties although the exact mechanism of how it affects inflammation remains unclear.

Both oral and dermal applications of Humic Acid exhibit antiphlogistic effects. In studies performed in China with hospital patients with rheumatoid arthritis, humic extract bath therapy treatment had a 92% success rate. Yuan, Shenyuan; Fulvic Acid, 4 1988; Application of Fulvic acid and its derivatives in the fields of agriculture and medicine; First Edition: June 1993

If you are suffering from or have had allergies, Alzheimer’s, anemia, aortic valve stenosis, arthritis, cancer, congestive heart failure, fibromyalgia, fibrosis, heart attack, kidney failure, lupus, pancreatitis, psoriasis, stroke, surgical complications or any other disease processes related to inflammation, and are seeking alternatives to toxic drugs, you may want to supplement with a high quality humic acid product. The anti-inflammatory effects are only one of the many health benefits humic substances offer.

Still Not Convinced You Should Avoid Vaccinations

The latest news to cast doubt on the safety of vaccinations comes from Finland where researchers have gone public with their findings that the Pandermix Swine flu vaccine causes permanent neurological damage in children. The Pandermix Swine Flu vaccination was conclusively linked to narcolepsy, a chronic nervous system disorder that causes people to uncontrollably fall asleep.

In response to these finding, the Finnish government in conjunction with The Finnish Pharmaceutical Insurance Pool (LVP), which represents insurance companies, stated on Wednesday October 5, 2011, it would honor all insurance claims resulting from the Pandermix Swine Flu vaccinations.  Additionally, the Finnish Government has agreed to cover medical claims exceeding insurance coverage limits for those children injured by the vaccination.  A total of 79 children between the ages of 4 and 19 developed narcolepsy after receiving the Pandermix Swine Flu vaccination between 2009 and 2010.

Meanwhile, the US government continues to promote vaccines as safe and effective.

You have to ask yourself if it’s worth the risk especially since a simple daily dose of Humic acid and Vitamin D-3 would do far more to halt influenza than any vaccination, and without the serious side effects.

Staying Healthy In A Toxic World

The increased chemicalization of the world today is placing a tremendous burden on our bodies and our health. Toxins are introduced into our bodies on a daily basis from numerous sources including the air we breathe, the water we drink and the foods we eat. The problem is the human body was never designed to handle the level of toxicity we are faced with today.

Major sources of toxic chemicals include; pollution, household cleaners, pesticides, artificial sweeteners, food additives, conventionally grown foods, farmed fish and non-organic meats. Processed and fast foods are loaded with them.

Speaking of fast food, ever wonder what is in a McDonalds strawberry milkshake? Here’s the ingredient list: Milkfat and nonfat milk, sugar, sweet whey, high-fructose corn syrup, guar gum, monoglycerides and diglycerides, cellulose gum, sodium phosphate, carrageenan, citric acid, E129 and artificial strawberry flavour.

Not so bad you say? Well, just what is E129 and what does “artificial strawberry flavor” contain?

E 129 is a red dye made from petroleum and is generally known as Red Dye No. 40. It is one of the most commonly used of all red food dyes. Yet, the safety of this colorant is highly controversial. It’s known to cause hyperactivity in children and is banned in Denmark, Belgium, France, Sweden and Switzerland.

A closer look at “artificial strawberry flavour” reveals it contains: amyl acetate, amyl butyrate, amyl valerate, anethol, anisyl formate, benzyl acetate, benzyl isobutyrate, butyric acid, cinnamyl isobutyrate, cinnamyl valerate, cognac essential oil, diacetyl, dipropyl ketone, ethyl butyrate, ethyl cinnamate, ethyl heptanoate, ethyl heptylate, ethyl lactate, ethyl methylphenylglycidate, ethyl nitrate, ethyl propionate, ethyl valerate, heliotropin, hydroxyphrenyl- 2-butanone (10% solution in alcohol), ionone, isobutyl anthranilate, isobutyl butyrate, lemon essential oil, maltol, 4-methylacetophenone, methyl anthranilate, methyl benzoate, methyl cinnamate, methyl heptine carbonate, methyl naphthyl ketone, methyl salicylate, mint essential oil, neroli essential oil, nerolin, neryl isobutyrate, orris butter, phenethyl alcohol, rose, rum ether, undecalactone, vanillin and solvent.

What does this have to do with Humic Acid (and its component Fulvic Acid)?

Humic acid is a powerful detoxifying (chelating) agent. A chelator is a molecule that binds toxins including heavy metals and removes them from the body via the elimination system. It also has a remarkable ability to neutralize toxins. No matter what compound it encounters in the body, it is capable of shifting, absorbing and then exiting it from the body through the normal excretion pathways. It does this though what we call Electron Resonance ResponseTM (ERR).  ERR is the adaptogenic ability to donor or accept electrons as dictated by the resonance of the electron spin of the toxin to optimally shift and chelate the harmful substances from the body.

By hyper supplementing with a high quality Humic acid you can help your body stay ahead of the toxic exposure.

The point of all this is that we can’t quantify all the chemicals we absorb on a moment by moment basis but we can do something to naturally help the body process and remove these harmful substances.
