    This is a lengthy article, DO NOT SURFACE READ. The actual treatment for ebola which will virtually eliminate fatalities, as revealed by a doctor who has worked with ebola, is below.

    Consider this: The elite would never release a plague without an easy cure, and along with this ebola outbreak an American biowarfare firm has been working in Sierra Leon for the last five years. Google that. Sierra Leon has actually identified them as the perpetrators of this outbreak and kicked them out of the country. There is absolutely no doubt this outbreak was intentionally caused by the U.S. war department.
    And if it is intentional, a cure is known. There would simply be no other way to do business.

    Here is the treatment, complete with MOA. This is a treatment and not a cure, your immune system wipes out the virus, and the treatment gives your immune system time to do it. Here is what Ebola does that is fatal: It causes the complete removal of all vitamin C from the body. No one actually knows what mechanism is involved in doing this, other than a malfunction that is not permanently destructive to whatever is triggered to remove all vitamin C. All the researchers know is that vitamin C drops to zero and all the symptoms of ebola are consistent with a complete loss of vitamin C.



    How do I know this? A doctor who has remained anonymous and has worked with ebola victims has discovered this and sent it to this web site, at last check this cannot be googled which confirms this doctor did not just copy paste, SO POST IT EVERYWHERE; GET THIS OUT THERE, THE TREATMENT FOR EBOLA WHICH WILL PREVENT DEATH IS KNOWN AND THIS IS AN EMERGENCY REQUEST FOR MY READERS TO SPREAD THIS INFO AND STOP THIS EBOLA ATTACK IN ITS TRACKS.
    From an anonymous doctor:



    Summary:
    "The very first symptoms of ebola are exactly the same as scurvy, which is caused by inadequate vitamin C. Though scurvy is seldom fatal as a primary condition, scurvy also represents only a partial deficiency of vitamin C, the body still has a LOT of vitamin C compared to zero, which ebola causes. Absent ANY vitamin C, blood vessels become very weak and start to lose blood, and platelets become ineffective and unable to trigger clots. So death by ebola is caused by massive internal bleeding and loss of blood, which can be stopped simply by taking enormous doses of vitamin C until the immune system succeeds in killing off the virus."



    Begin text:
    Ebola is probably the best known of a class of viruses known as hemorrhagic fever viruses. In fact, Ebola virus was initially recognized in 1976. Other less known but related viral syndromes include yellow fever, dengue hemorrhagic fever, Rift Valley fever, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, Kyasanur Forest disease, Omsk hemorrhagic fever, hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever, Brazilian hemorrhagic fever, Argentine hemorrhagic fever, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, and Lassa fever. The Ebola virus infection, also known as African hemorrhagic fever, has the distinction of having the highest case-fatality rate of the viral infections noted above, ranging from 53% to 88%.

    These viral hemorrhagic fever syndromes share certain clinical features. The Cecil Textbook of Medicine notes that these diseases are characterized by capillary fragility, which translates to easy bleeding, that can frequently lead to severe shock and death. These diseases also tend to consume and/or destroy the platelets, which play an integral role in blood clotting. The clinical presentation of these viral diseases is similar to scurvy, which is also characterized by capillary fragility and a tendency to bleed easily. Characteristic skin lesions develop, which are actually multiple tiny areas of bleeding into the skin that surround the hair follicles. some cases even include bleeding into already healed scars.

    In the classic form of scurvy that evolves very slowly from the gradual depletion of vitamin C body stores, the immune system will be sufficiently compromised for infection to claim the patient’s life before the extensive hemorrhage that occurs after all vitamin C stores have been completely exhausted. Ebola virus and the other viral hemorrhagic fevers are much more likely to cause hemorrhaging before any other fatal infection has a chance to become established. This is because the virus so rapidly and totally metabolizes and consumes all available vitamin C in the bodies of the victims that an advanced stage of scurvy is literally produced after only a few days of the disease.

     The scurvy is so complete that the blood vessels generally cannot keep from hemorrhaging long enough to allow an infective complication to develop. Also, the viral hemorrhagic fevers typically only take hold and reach epidemic proportions in those populations that would already be expected to have low body stores of vitamin C, such as is found in many of the severely malnourished Africans. In such individuals, an infecting hemorrhagic virus will often wipe out any remaining vitamin C stores before the immune systems can get the upper hand and initiate recovery. When the vitamin C stores are rapidly depleted by large infecting doses of an aggressive virus, the immune system gets similarly depleted and compromised. However, this point is largely academic after hemorrhaging throughout the body has begun.

    To date, no viral infection has been demonstrated to be resistant to the proper dosing of vitamin C as classically demonstrated by Klenner. However, not all viruses have been treated with Klenner-sized vitamin C doses, or at least the results have not been published. Ebola viral infection and the other acute viral hemorrhagic fevers appear to be diseases that fall into this category. Because of the seemingly exceptional ability of these viruses to rapidly deplete vitamin C stores, even larger doses of vitamin C would likely be required in order to effectively reverse and eventually cure infections caused by these viruses.

    Cathcart (1981), who introduced the concept of bowel tolerance to vitamin C discussed earlier, hypothesized that Ebola and the other acute viral hemorrhagic fevers may well require 500,000 mg of vitamin C daily to reach bowel tolerance! Whether this estimate is accurate, it seems clear as evidenced by the scurvy-like clinical manifestations of these infections that vitamin C dosing must be vigorous and given in extremely high doses. If the disease seems to be winning, then even more vitamin C should be given until symptoms begin to lessen. Obviously, these are viral diseases that would absolutely require high doses of vitamin C intravenously as the initial therapy. The oral administration should begin simultaneously, but the intravenous route should not be abandoned until the clinical response is complete. Death occurs too quickly with the hemorrhagic fevers to be conservative when dosing the vitamin C. (from Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins:Curing the Incurable by Thomas E. Levy MD JD)



    MY COMMENT: I may not be a doctor, but I am awful good with medical topics, and this rings 100 percent true, IT IS THE MOA which if combined with some of my medical knowledge, such as the fact that Broccoli is absolutely excellent for assisting the clotting of blood, that the active component of Noni (which is in pineapple juice) is strongly anti viral, and that cures such as colloidal silver, while good for bacterial infections does nothing for viruses, combine some real knowledge with what this doctor says and it is highly probable that Ebola can be shrugged off as a mild case of scurvy.

    Beware the current Colloidal Silver psy op, the actual cure for Ebola has been given to this web site.
    Colloidal silver is great stuff, and I have made gallons from a 1 ounce silver bar myself. It works great for curing BACTERIAL infections and making water safe to drink without the nasty taste of iodine. HOWEVER, COLLOIDAL SILVER WILL DO NOTHING AGAINST VIRUSES, AND HUGE LIES ARE BEING HATCHED RIGHT NOW TO MISGUIDE PEOPLE TO A FALSE EBOLA CURE AND THE ALTERNATIVE MEDIA IS LAPPING IT UP

     All curative agents have a mode of action, or MOA. And if anyone posting medical cures does not know the MOA, they have no idea what they are talking about. Colloidal silver has an MOA that has been known for many decades, yet recently Google has been rigged to bury it with only articles stating "the MOA is being explored and we think it is ___(then disinfo)" and there has to be a reason why this is being done right now, at this point in time with Ebola running amok.

    Here is how colloidal silver actually works (its MOA), with first an example: Colloidal silver is to bacteria what cyanide is for all red blooded organisms. In red blooded organisms, cyanide binds with hemoglobin in place of oxygen, and makes it impossible for blood to carry oxygen. With enough cyanide, oxygen starvation via cyanide bonded hemoglobin causes death.

    Colloidal silver does the same for bacteria, it binds with the oxygen carriers in bacteria permanently, causing bacteria to quickly die from oxygen starvation. This is the MOA for colloidal silver, which has been clearly known practically forever.



    VIRUSES HAVE NO METABOLIC PROCESSES WHICH REQUIRE AN OXYGEN CARRIER, AND THEREFORE COLLOIDAL SILVER WILL BE COMPLETELY INEFFECTIVE AGAINST EBOLA, do not let the misinformed in the alternative media fool you by saying colloidal silver is effective against viruses in any way, colloidal silver is only useful for treating secondary bacterial infections that move in after a preceeding viral infection and in the case of ebola, there is not enough time for that to make a difference.

    It is extremely important to note that a HUGE psy op is underway to fake colloidal silver as a cure for viruses and there HAS TO BE A REASON, DO NOT FALL FOR IT.

    These scientific studies refute your claim.

    http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11671-008-9128-2/fulltext.html

    Also, there is another study showing the efficacy of colloidal silver against Smallpox virus, but you have to purchase it online in order to view it. So I did not even bother posting the heading with no abstract or content.

    Now, I'm not endorsing taking CS to combat Ebola. I'm just saying it does work, at least to some degree, against other viruses.

    Stay away from Hospitals nurses and Doctors.  Read somewhere where 90% of cases in the past came from these sources.  For me I would stay off the air planes.  That's just for me .....

    Keep up the immune system with healthy food and especially lots of Vitamin C .  Again , I am no doctor, just what I would do.  Also prayer and Holy Water near by.

    You are mistaken. There are white people infected with Ebola, including an American doctor and aid worker who treated patients in west Africa. Possibly some Filipinos, too.

    There were white people infected in lab accidents in Russia and Britain years ago, too, if I'm not mistaken.

    Take lots of Turmeric, Cinnamon, Cloves, etc to fight off pathogens and build immunity. Colloidal Silver actually might work, too. It certainly won't hurt to use it. Do your own research on it, but keep in mind that people try to sell you a product. Here's a report about CS combating Ebola, and supposedly, the government suppressing their studies showing CS kills Ebola, but I don't know if it has any merit. Judge for yourself: http://drrimatruthreports.com/wp-content/uploads/Analysis-of-DTRA-Nano-Silver-Study.pdf .. Keep in mind she's trying to sell her product.

    Stay away from infected people and environments that house the virus. Get some N95 or P95 masks (or N/P100). Lab goggles are a good idea, too. Get alcohol-based hand sanitizer. They kill envelope viruses such as Ebola, influenza and coronaviruses (you can make your own - very cost effective- just get some bottles of rubbing alcohol and pour into pocket bottles effecting them 85% - 90% full. Then add skin lotion. Shake well.

    Chlorhexidine Gluconate is also good at killing envelope viruses, plus, the ability to kill viruses and bacteria stays on the skin and surfaces for hours after application.

    Bleach (if that's all you have during an outbreak) is better than nothing, even though it can harm skin or even cause cancer with chronic exposure to body. Dilute bleach with water.  

    Of course, full personal protective equipment is ideal, but if you can't get it, then just over-bandage any part of the body that has open/torn skin - maybe layer it with plastic wrap - and wear clothing that covers it. Always protect mucous membranes from any exposure, including air, hence, wear masks and goggles.  

    Pray the Rosary or Divine Office or Little Office of Blessed Virgin Mary every day. Get enrolled in the Brown Scapular and wear it with devotion to our Blessed Mother. Don't worry about a pandemic (if it pandemic), but stay vigilant and use prudence.

    Don't trust the government or media. Doctors are liars, or at the least, ignorant, too.

  • I forgot to mention taking Garcinia kola. Here is an article about this herb being effective against Ebola:

    http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/news/a-folk-remedy-for-killer-ebola/148114.article

    Also, post-exposure Ebola and Marburg virus replication is inhibited by synthetic drug-like molecule called BCX4430 administered to rodents; and macaques (monkeys) are completely protected from Marburg (similar to Ebola) viral replication when administered the "drug" as late as 48 hours after infection. Antiviral efficacy is also shown against coronaviruses (possibly MERS-CoV and SARS). I posted this study on my Fb page soon after it was published:

    http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v508/n7496/full/nature13027.html  

    Here is a "secret serum" being administered to the 2 Americans infected with Ebola in Africa. It's a product from a conjunction of Biopharma, the Army and Big Tobacco:

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidkroll/2014/08/05/ebola-secret-serum-small-biopharma-the-army-and-big-tobacco/  

    It was reported by POTR late last month before anybody:

    It would not be a bad idea at all to get a big 500 pill bottle of 1000 milligram vitamin C NOW, though it is doubtful this ebola trend will continue at its current rate, VITAMIN C IS CHEAP AND GOOD TO HAVE AROUND ANYWAY.

    I cannot help but think that the many countries that have tried to ban the sale of vitamins without a prescription may have been convinced to do so in preparation for this, in any country that has done this the population will be doomed if vitamin C really is the treatment for ebola.



    Once again, I believe the ultra high dosages will not be needed. Max benefit is very likely to be achieved at 12 grams per day, with each 1000 milligram tablet taken at two hour intervals, and a few in the morning (all the ones you skipped while sleeping.) It is probably pointless to take more than that for preventive purposes (but obviously at least double that amount if you do come down with ebola).

    An anonymous nurse posted the following to a forum:
    The human population of this world has always been kept in check by viruses, or some other method of sheer destruction. The Flu, Polio, Smallpox, you name it, these things have a purpose in nature. They keep populations under control.

    Since the dawn of the industrial age we began to outsmart them all. We Vaccinate against the flu, we all but eradicated Polio in this country. We had beaten our enemies into near submission, and as a result, the worlds population has exploded. But our Genius is beginning to catch up with us. Anti-biotic resistant bacteria are on the rise, the flu is devising new ways to counter attack our defenses. And Ebola, well, lets just say it's doing what all viruses do. It's trying to survive, it's trying to find a way to use our own immune system against us. Think about this for a minute...

    The Flu infects you, your body goes into defensive mode, realizing that it must expel the invader. So your own body fills your lungs with mucus and fluid, which forces you to cough. This is the real genius of the flu. It actually depends on your immune response to spread itself. And it doesn't have much time to do it either. Because your body begins to increase it's own temperature. Yes, having a fever is an immune response, not caused by the flu, rather it is literally your body attempting to make you so hot that the protein coat protecting the flu virus breaks down, allowing your white cells to attack.

    This is what all viruses do. ALL of them. They find a way to exploit your natural immune responses to propagate themselves.

    Ebola.... once just a hemorrhagic fever on steroids, now is a bona-fide menace. I work in a hospital laboratory at a major hospital in a major Metro Area. My wife works clinical micro for the same company. I'm very well versed in just about everything a STAT lab in a hospital can, and does do. My wife on the other hand, actually majored in micro, with emphasis on virology. So I wanted you all to know a few things about this outbreak that became apparent to us as it began to spread.

    #1. Something has changed. This virus used to have a much shorter incubation period. And it would kill within a week. The mortality rate was much higher once upon a time. However, this is not the case anymore. Based on the sheer number of infected, the virus it seems, may have found a way to transmit itself easier. Typically when a virus "evolves" it gains in one area, while giving ground in another. It makes sense to me that Ebola gave up alot of it's lethality, for the ability to spread itself easier, and incubate much, much longer.

    #2. Africa is a mess. There is no way to tell how many are infected. Once upon a time Ebola would strike a village and wipe everyone out, and that was it. It would kill so fast that it could not spread out of the hotzone. Because of what I said above that is not the case anymore. On a continent where borders still mean very little to the native population, it is a scary mix. Even if the CDC or the WHO wanted to get accurate numbers, it would be hopeless due to the unknown number or people that distrust western medicine, refuse to get help, or wander around from village to village. The infrastructure simply does not have the same capabilities we do in the west.

    #3. Even in the United States, out of all the various hospitals I have worked at, there is no hope of containing anything like this. One of the largest hospitals I worked at only had two reverse flow isolation rooms. TWO, let that sink in for a minute. If this thing goes as bad as some think it will, we are, quite literally, screwed. Patients only show up to the hospital when they go symptomatic. So by the time they get there, they've already infected their entire family, their work group, and anyone they got within a few feet of on the way to the hospital. When they get there the ER nurses would treat it either like Flu, or Sepsis. But the whole time the patient is infecting all of them. And all of them, in turn, begin to infect everyone else in the exact same way. If this is as virulent as the WHO thinks it might be, by the time people realize what is going on, there will be more sick people than there would be beds available at every hospital in the US combined.

    #4. Testing blood for anything is not as simple as looking under a microscope. And hospital labs are not set up for exotic virology. We run basic Chemistries, Cardiac enzymes, blood counts, sed rates, drug levels, bacterial cultures, all the basic hands on shit. The kind of things that old people usually present for, blood loss, infection, and cardiac events. Anything exotic gets sent out. Sometimes to the State lab, most of the time specimens get sent across the country to Quest Diagnostics, or to other organizations actually set up for it. Your average city hospital is pitifully, laughably, not ready for anything of this nature. Sure, running a CBC can tell if you are dehydrated, it can tell of you are loosing blood, it can tell if you are fighting "something" off. It just can't tell what. A sed rate can determine if you have excess inflammation, but it can't tell you why. A Lactic Acid level can indicate Sepsis, but it can't tell you from what. The point is, at the early stages of an outbreak, people will get treated for run of the mill things. Because nothing a hospital can test immediately will be able to tell anyone that you are carrying the most deadly hemorrhagic fever currently known. Honestly, if a person came into a busy ER with a fever, the triage nurse would put them in the waiting room until a non urgent room opened up in the back. They simply have no way to know who is carrying what.

    I'm not saying we're all gonna die. This thing could fizzle out. And everything could be fine. What I am trying to illustrate here is that just because a lab exists in a hospital, does not mean that it can tell you everything. There are triage algorithms that work for everyday field medicine, but nothing for an outbreak. Thinking that living in a developed nation will curb the spread is ridiculous. If anything, it makes it worse. Our commute, our workplaces, our homes, our methods of entertainment, all of those things that we love so much about living in the the west, are the things that viruses depend on to spread.

    If this virus truly has found a way to transmit easier, the healthcare system would be completely overloaded with something they simply can not handle.

    Anyway, I'm not trying to scare anyone, I just hope people can be realistic about the capabilities of hospital containment, hospital laboratory testing, and the fact that the healthcare system, in ANY country, could not handle a massive outbreak.

    So don't expect miracles from front line hospital staff, we don't have the tools, and we certainly do not have the manpower. Ask anyone in the medical field how much overtime they could work if they felt like it, don't even get me started on how thinly stretched people in the industry are. Though I suppose if this does turn into something, that will become apparent very, very fast.

    Good luck, don't freak out, wash your hands, be prepared, hug your kids.

    That is all.
