Boost Natural Killer Cells to Prevent Swine Flu
Date:5/6/2009

TARPON SPRINGS, Fla., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthy immune systems increase protection from viruses, including the H1N1 swine flu. Herbal and nutritional supplements can dramatically increase protection from swine flu by increasing levels of Natural Killer Cells, which destroy viruses, without attacking healthy body cells.

Drastic measures including closing schools, canceling graduation ceremonies and airline flights are being used to slow spread of the H1N1 swine flu virus. Governmental authorities recommend increased hand washing and avoiding handshakes, which did not prevent previous influenza epidemics from killing millions of people, in 1918.

Rick Sponaugle, MD, Medical Director of Florida Detox and Wellness Institute, recommends increasing levels of Natural Killer Cell white blood cells, to prevent infection with swine flu and other viruses. Natural Killer Cells protect us from viruses, during new infections, while other white blood cells attempt to produce antibodies against new viruses. Research proves over the counter herbal and nutritional supplements can increase Natural Killer Cell levels.

Dr. Sponaugle reported, "We have measured 60 percent increases in Natural Killer Cells, using over the counter formulas containing naturally occurring inositol phosphates. The 60 percent Natural Killer Cell increase is consistent with results published in scientific studies." Since Inositol phosphates occur naturally in the body, there is essentially no risk of allergic reaction.

AHCC, is an immune booster extracted from mushrooms which increased Natural Killer Cell levels, 200 to 300 percent, in published studies. Florida Detox and Wellness Institute increased Natural Killer Cell levels in one severely immune suppressed patient, from 3 per milliliter to 150 per milliliter.

Natural Killer Cell levels tend to decrease with age. Patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Lymes Disease, Babesia, or HIV are more likely to have lower Natural Killer Cell levels. Herpes Simplex, Human Herpes 6, Epstein Barr and Cytomegalus viruses also suppress immunity.

Dr. Sponaugle also recommends reducing sugar consumption, to increase immunity. Studies reveal consuming 100 grams of sugar reduced immunity for over five hours. Researchers measured activity of neutrophils, white blood cells which engulf and destroy bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. Neutrophil activity was reduced over 45 percent, two hours, after sugar consumption. Am. J. Clin. Nutr., 30:613, 1977 Am. J. Clin. Nutr., 26:180, 1973.

Excessive sugar consumption causes chronic immune suppression, in many Americans. The average American consumes 125 grams of sucrose sugar daily, in addition to 50 grams of other refined sugars daily. A typical 12 ounce cola drink contains ten teaspoons or 41 grams of sugar. A Milky War candy bar contains 35 grams of sugar. Many herbal teas and energy drinks are sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, which is essentially a refined sugar. Estimates indicate twenty percent of Americans consume over 75 grams of high fructose corn syrup daily. Since different parts of the immune system work together, through chemical messenger systems, increasing neutrophil activity can enhance Natural Killer Cell activity.
