COMING PLAGUE Is This For Real?
The Cell From Hell:
After breathing the fumes from a tank of dying fish, JoAnn Burkholder's mind dulled and
her motor skills slowed. Burkholder, a research scientist at North Carolina State
University, had recently discovered the algae-like parasite responsible for killing
millions of fish in North Carolina's estuaries. She was in her lab doing research on the
organism when the attack occurred.
Unaware of her sluggishness, JoAnn kept working for four more hours until, barely able to
walk, colleagues helped her out. Burkholder had inadvertently exposed herself to
Pfiesteria, the name she had given to the parasite that caused her illness. After
suffering from stomach cramps, labored breathing and acute short term memory loss that
lasted for eight days, she recovered somewhat. In the past four years she's been
hospitalized with pneumonia eight times, and cannot exercise without triggering some sort
of respiratory illness. Two other researchers working on the case suffered similar
Based on physician reports of patients with open sores and other strange symptoms,
Burkholder estimates Phiesteria has already struck more than one hundred fisherman.
Because of its ability to to attack the human immune system, Phiesteria has been dubbed
"the cell from hell," and "Phiesteria AIDS," by scientists studying
it. Failing to chemically characterize Pfiesteria in human blood samples, researchers are
unable to develop a test for Phiesteria in humans. What's worse, there is no known cure.
Phiesteria is just one of many new strains of super bugs that has the Center for Disease
Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) worried about what humanity fears
the most, an uncontrolled disease outbreak commonly referred to as "the plague."
But is an outbreak likely in an age when technology has come so far?
The Plague of 1918:
In 1918, an outbreak of a strange influenza virus killed more than 20 million people
world-wide, making it the worse infectious disease episode ever. It wasn't until 1997 that
a genetic analysis of the virus, taken from lung tissue at autopsy 79 years ago, revealed
its face. Scientists at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology who performed the
analysis, concluded the virus was unique, though closely related to "Swine flu."
While the disease that caused the plague of 1918 is called "Spanish flu," the
virus apparently is a mutation that evolved in American pigs from pig farms located in
South Carolina. U.S. soldiers spread the virus world-wide when they were mobilized for
World War I.
What is so scary about Phiesteria is that researchers have attributed its sudden growth
from sewage and run-off from pig farms that dot the North Carolina landscape. The Armed
Forces Institute of Pathology warns that such a plague could happen again. In light of
Phiesteria, that warning needs to be shouted loud and clear.
When a pandemic occurs, it is without doubt, the most devastating of all human
experiences. Entire families and even whole communities can be erased within a few short
weeks. Society itself can be threatened as death, that great separator, visits household
Why Doctors Can't Help:
Even the tiniest of life forms fight for survival. As doctors 4throw antibiotics up
against life threatening pathogens, they will mutate, or change their genetic make-up to
beat the drug used against them. This evolutionary process is relentless. So much so,
there are few, if any, drugs on the market that can effectively stop a pandemic, should
one occur. Killer viruses mutate with at times lightning speeds, rendering the most potent
and newest antibiotics useless.
In New York City, health professionals are fighting a mutant strain of a disease long
thought conquered a multi-drug resistant form of Tuberculosis. To make matters worse,
there appears to be several different strains erupting that are resistant to ALL known
drugs. TB in its third stage of development is highly contagious and can be passed from a
simple sneeze. World-wide, three million people died of TB in 1996.
In Africa, it's Malaria. In South America, it's Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever. In Pakistan,
it's Congo Virus. In all of these places, modern drugs are coming up short as killer
pathogens find ways to resist.
Another example. The death rate from people contracting hepatitis C is expected to triple
within 20 years. That's because there is a "large reservoir of people with chronic
infection," according to D.W. Powell of the University of Texas Medical Branch at
Galveston. An estimated 4 million people infected with hepatitis C can expect major health
problems, such as cirrhosis or liver cancer. Currently, the only treatment available is
Interferon, but it is only effective in 25% to 30% of patients. Again, the microbe that
causes hepatitis is finding ways to resist to live.
We live in an age of super bugs, an era of strange diseases brought on, in part, by the
very drugs used to eradicate them. It should be obvious that using drugs to fight these
diseases is the wrong path to follow. There must be a better answer.
Behold The Human Body:
The human body is one of the most perfectly designed forms in all creation. We were
created with an immune system so powerful, it is fully capable of defeating any disease
causing organism that invades our body.
To insure its virility, we must SUPPORT our immune system through a variety of means,
including proper nutrition and exercise. We must AVOID introducing unnatural substances
into our bodies like man-made toxic chemical drugs. Easy enough to say, quite another to
With over 100 million Americans suffering from chronic forms of illnesses all attributable
to having low immune systems, we must must NOT be doing something right.
Each time we shampoo our hair, brush our teeth, apply under arm deodorant, eat an antacid,
take medication, draw a breath of air, or eat processed food, we are ingesting or
absorbing harmful chemical drugs into our bodies. Drugs are everywhere, but especially in
our food and personal care products. Given time, like drops of water filling a jar, our
once strong immune system becomes compromised, unable to function at it's God given best.
As our immune systems become compromised, we open the door for disease causing organisms
to gain a foothold. Early warning signs that our immune system has been compromised are
allergies, indigestion, constipation, hemorrhoids, high blood pressure, weight gain, sinus
infections, colds and flu.
Eating refined or processed food only deprives the body of needed nutrients the immune
system depends on. Such foods are so depleted that U.S. federal law requires that a few
artificial vitamins and minerals be added back. Such foods are labelled
"enriched" or "fortified." You should know whenever you see those
words on a food package, it means important nutrients are missing.
In an age of drugs and depleted food value, it is not enough to simply eat and groom
ourselves. We must deliberately ADD or SUPPLEMENT our diet with those ESSENTIAL missing
ingredients and find ways to make up for harmful chemicals that continually invade our
Enter Essential Oils:
Essential Oils are the healing life-force of plants. They contain virtually all of the
plants healing nutrients, oxygenating molecules, amino acid precursors, coenzyme A
factors, trace minerals, enzymes, vitamins, hormones and more. That is why a growing
number of health professionals consider essential oils to be medicine, a medicine no known
pathogen can survive.
Dr. Jean Valnet, a well known French medical researcher points out that the essential oil
from thyme literally destroys the anthrax bacillus, the glanders bacillus, staphylococcus,
the diptheria bacillus, meningococcus, and Kock's bacillus, which is the bacteria
responsible for tuberculous lesions.
Dr. Valnet adds that the works of Morel and Rochaix have demonstrated the vapors of lemon
oil alone will nutralize the typhus bacillus and staphylococcus in only five minutes and
the diphtheric bacillus in just twenty minutes.
Moreover, infectious pathogens have yet to find a way to become resistant to essential
oils, as they do with antibiotics. Dr Valnet states, " Infectious microbes do not
appear to become accustomed to the essential oils as they do to the many forms of
treatment using antibiotics. This is very important. Antibiotics are certainly powerful
weapons, but they can be dangerous and are easily and often misused. Indeed, quite apart
from the abusive use of antibiotics, the dramatic increase recently in the resistance of
pathogenic microorganisms to all types of antibiotics, sometimes even the latest ones, is
well known. We are finding that the effects of the same oils remain almost unchanged.
Recent testing in the U.S. has shown the essential oil of clove, oregano and thyme to be
even more powerful than penicillin, the medical community's mainline defense for fighting
these "strange" diseases. The results of this study will be soon published in a
well known medical journal.
From a scientific viewpoint, there is much more to learn about essential oils before they
are endorsed on a public level as a defense against disease. From an anecdotal
perspective, essential oils have long been known to save lives.
Essential Oils and The Plague:
Plagues are nothing new to mankind. They have occurred over the past millennia, killing
many millions of people. History records that essential oils have played a major role in
saving the lives of those people who understood their value, and used them as a means of
Housed in the Royal English Archives is the record of thieves who robbed the dead of
valuables during the Black Plague of the 17th century. Although contact with diseased
bodies spelled certain death, the thieves boldly went from house to house without ever
coming down with the plague. It turns out they were members of a family of perfumers,
Because of their intimate knowledge of certain essential oils they rubbed on their bodies,
they had no fear of this deadly disease.
History also shows the entire town of Bucklersbury, England escaped the plague, while
residents of other towns were dying in large numbers. It is believed because this town was
the center of the European lavender trade, that the oil derived from this plant protected
the towns residents. We now know that the essential oil of lavender has microbial
properties that rivals many modern antibiotic drugs.
From earliest recorded history, essential oils have played an active role in commerce. The
record is there for any to research. From Holy Scripture to secular writings, essential
oils are recorded as mankind's first known medicine. That we have forgotten them does not
mean they are worthless, only that we need to find them again.
Truth or Consequences:
That a full blown, world-wide plague could strike again seems impossible to many people.
Yet, we live in an age when just one infected person could trigger a world-wide pandemic.
Consider the effect of just one infected person aboard an enclosed passenger plane. As
passengers breathe the same air over and over, it is feasible, one person could infect
hundreds of passengers before landing. The spread of such a deadly disease would be
impossible to stop. As the newly infected passengers go their separate ways, they could be
carrying death with them, infecting anyone they came in contact with.
If the immune system of those infected is virile and operating at full strength, there
would be nothing to fear. Such a human body would attack and defeat the invader. What
happens to the body whose immune system is impaired, impaired, lacking the ability to
defend against invasion? This is why it is so important we take responsibility for our own
health. Unless we are willing to learn what constitutes good health and then practice it,
we are exposing ourselves to constant threats of disease.
The knowledge to live a healthy, disease-free life is freely available. Yet if we ignore
that knowledge, we will suffer the consequences, as surely as night follows day. Essential
Oils are not a "magic bullet." But they do represent one rung on a ladder that
can bring you to the health you were meant to have.
Is the coming plague real? No one can say with certainty. Yet all the signs point to such
an event in the near future. Inspite of all advances in technology, nature still rules
over our lives. It is a wise person who understands this and relies on nature, rather than
the wisdom of man, to seek out truth and health. Essential oils are part of that truth.
They embody that essential missing link in our good health.

The health community in the U.S. is in a near crisis situation. With the recall of
"Fen-Phen" this week, the FDA has come under fire for not living up to it's
mission. 1,000's of lawsuits have already been filed and many more are anticipated. This
drug has affected one of every three users causing heart valves to not function properly.
It's a real mess. The veil of trust is gone.
Hospitals across the land are in a state of panic about what to do to stop the spread of
disease within their own walls. At Boston's Children's Hospital, four babies in the
Intensive Care Unitwere killed from the spread of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infecting their
bloodstreams this past August. The bacteria was found on the hands of several workers,
which is how they surmise this killer was spread.
Across the country, hospital officials are scratching their heads as how to stop the
spread of infectious micro-organisms within hospitals that infect and kill up to 60,000
Local physicians in an effort to satisfy their patients with quick fixes are prescribing a
record number of drugs. In 1996 doctors prescribed 282,631,000 antibiotics, 76,370,000
tranquillizers, 23,681,000 sleeping pills and 23,596,000 anti-obesity drugs.
The bugs these drugs are meant to kill are thriving in part because patients frequently
stop taking the drugs once they begin to feel better, before consuming the entire
prescription. This, the Center for Disease Control says, allows the remaining bugs to
become resistant against whatever anti-biotic is being used, opening the door for other
people to become infected with a virulent pathogen no one knows how to stop.
These prescribed drugs often kill off good bacteria in the body that aid digestion and
keep other body systems going.One reason why anti-biotics so often cause diarrhea and/or
Our food supply is being threatened like never before. Hudson foods was shut down for

industry in Maryland and North Carolina.
There is growing pessimism on the part of the public that our doctors and government are
unable to protect us.
Add to this picture a life-long love affair with Big Macs, Whoppers and Greasy French
Fries, processed ready-to-eat food, and an ocean of diet colas and you have the makings of
human beings designed to live 120 years dying at half that age. There is no free lunch.

Is it any wonder why Americans, in record numbers, are searching for health alternatives?
Americans are a funny people. We pride our independence so much, we have become isolated
from the very people we should be close to. It will surprise you to learn many people
close to you have health problems they never discuss. What a tragedy!
There is an answer to the problem. The answer is Essential Oils & Food Supplements.
Essential Oils have been in use since Biblical times.
