Has anyone ever had issues with contracting viruses or diseases while travelling, especially to the third world or tropical countries in SEA and SA that seem to be popular among this forum?

I caught dengue fever on Phi Phi Islands late last year and apparently a second strain of the virus has great potential to cause a coma or death. Obviously this makes me hesitant to travel to places where dengue is prevalent (basically anywhere cheap with decent women, besides Eastern Europe). I know there's so many other ways to die in life that it shouldn't even be on my radar but I just can't see myself enjoying a destination while constantly having that threat in the back of my mind.

Any relatable stories to be told?
Just got of Chinkungunya, somewhat similar to Dengue. Pretty serious disease but a lot of it depends on your own resistance. I was very happy to see I took care of it in about a week. Some people have long term problems with it, dead even is possible. These things happen, as always I trusted on my own medicinal knowledge, used mostly natural stuff and supplements and ate well, it worked.
Got Dengue fever aswell last summer on Koh Chang. A lot of people got the fever there in June.

Also I got something in my stomach that caused me more than 5 weeks of diarrehoa.
Took stool tests both in Thailand and Finland but the results gave me no answers.
I also caught Chinkungunya about a year ago. Wasn't that big of a deal though. Drink water, drive on.
Do you guys ever get vaccinated before going abroad? I remember the first time I went overseas, I had to take stuff for typhoid. You think it's probably just safer now to "eat healthy and drink lots of water?"
I had typhoid and Hep A vaccinations last year but depends on where you're going and the risk factors. I would definitely make sure you have Hep A/B if travelling to a third world country as even if you eat healthy food and drink water (and fuck clean women lol), these things can easily be contaminated in that environment.
Great travel medicine clinic run by City in San Francisco, when I went they had maps of the Philippines , told which areas had malaria etc.

They had genial specialized nurses who saw you one on one for a cheap fee, and they designed a custom program of vaccinations , some for stuff I hadn't heard of like the picturesque Yellow Fever.

The nurse told me Dengue mosquitoes bite during the day and Malaria ones at night.

I bought Ex Officio pants and an LL Bean shirt both with built-in mosquito repellant ( lasts 70 washes) for about 70-100 each. The only drawback is they have elaborate zippers and pockets and although those are handy you VERY much stand out in them because most locals and even few tourists have obviously expensive clothing like that.

It's pretty interesting watching mosquitoes hover around them. The clothes do some confusion thing with the bugs so they can't seem to identify you as a meal. It seemed to me they worked.

I've been sick with general fatigue, ear infections, and swollen lingering mosquito bites and ant bites here in the Philippines quite a lot. Doesn't seem I got Dengue. Yet. Also, NONE of the chicks here get tested or treated for STDs unless a guy is paying for it. It's costs about $75 by the time you're done for doctor and meds for a case of gonorreah. That's about half a month's salary here.

There's a lot of negative nagging shit like that in the tropics that has moved me towards the "pick one and take her home" position.
Yeah the worst case is paying child support if/when I get her pregnant. I'm almost 60, and they can only kill me once. Mosquitoes can kill you forever lol.
Must be the worst nightmare when you are on a date ...
Antibiotic free treatment of any kind of viruses are via high dosage vitamin C:

Diseases like cancer can be only supplemented with it, but for viruses it is essentially fool-proof. They even treated syphilis just with mega doses of vitamin C (would not recommend it solely because syphilis has excellent specific antibiotics).

In severe cases like almost always fatal Legionnaire's Disease the only survivors known came managed only with vitamin C - in that case 200.000 mg daily with no sign of saturation.

Most people don't have to fear such rare bacteria and viruses. Slightly more dosage vitamin C during travel will do - I recommend 5000 to 10.000mg per day vs. 2000 to 3000 while at home.
Before you leave, travel to a tractor supply or pet store and get some antibiotics. Do your research on what you think you might need. You don't need prescriptions to get antibiotics.
I've been battling a wicked case of yellow fever for the last 8 years.

So far, I think it's winning.
I've been back from Peru about a week and pretty sure I've got dengue fever. Have nearly every single symptom listed, worst by far is the muscle/joint pain - can barely walk at the moment, like the morning after you first do squats x 10. I read it was called the bone breaking disease at some point which is very accurate.

Eating a lot of fruit/veg but I'll try a mega dose of vit C to speed recovery. If this is the only thing I caught from SA I'll be quite happy Banana

It may take a lot. Buy only pure vitamin C powder - l-ascorbic acid:

You can also get it in liquid form. Just mix it with baking soda (not with aluminum that is sold everywhere) sodium bicarbonate.
The tablets absorption rate by the way vary from producer and tablet to tablet. The good ones are not that bad, but I take it usually pure, because it works faster and the taste is fine.

One part sodium bicarbonate and 8 parts vitamin C in enough water. Drink a lot afterwards.

I would start by taking 5000mg vitamin c every 15 minutes (20.000mg per hour) until I reach titration (non painful dissipating diarrhea like pissing shit - passes in 20 minutes):

http://www.doctoryourself.com/titration.html

Any viral infection is 100% treatable with mega dose of vitamin C, but you can forget doing it with fruit. That can never work. There is just 60mg of vitamin c in an orange.

There is supposedly a guy who survived a near 100% fatal Legionnaire's disease virus by taking 200k of vitamin C daily without experiencing any titration! (that is 40% of the box above)

Quote:LEGIONNAIRE'S DISEASE Bob Smith writes:

"On a Monday morning some years ago, I got a fever of 102, and normally I never get sick. So I started taking vitamin C at 10 grams AN HOUR, waiting to reach bowl tolerance. Did not get loose stools. The next day I went to 15 grams an hour. On Wednesday, I tried to take an entire 250 gram bottle. Would have liked to get an IV of C but doctors using this were far away and I was sick so didn't. I was annoyed at my system because I could not get loose stools. A friend took me to a local hospital on Friday to be checked and the hospital recommended I check in. But they could not say what was wrong, so I went home and continued taking the C orally. Saturday night the fever broke with profuse sweating. Then I went to an internist, and was checked out as in perfect health.

"After two weeks of feeling bad, I received emergency calls from the Health Department. They informed me that at a hotel where I'd previously stayed, three people got similarly sick. Each went to a different hospital, and all were dead 3 to 5 days later. The diagnosis was Legionnaire's disease. So they called me when they heard I was sick. I found one of the nation's leading Legionnaire's experts. He did blood tests and found I had the fatal form and could not believe it. He retested and confirmed that I had lived though it. He could not understand how I'd survived. Of course, he said, vitamin C could not have been a factor. But I know: my body was so sick at that time I could not reach bowel tolerance."

Thank you for this report. It is hard to argue with success, although doctors so often try. I think you were right. Congratulations on a job well done.

Vitamin C in those doses works because it simply hyper-charges the immune system.

But I hope you did not take any of those "popular" travel vaccinations? Because then you have simple poisoning - need an added protocol for that.
Thanks man, that's a crazy story - smart guy! No I didn't take anything before the trip and had no problems with mosquitos up until the last couple nights in Peru, got bitten a lot. Will get started on this tomorrow morning.
You can get vaccinated for dengue nowadays, look up dengvaxia I'm not sure what the efficacy rate is though. They gave us something similar when I was in the Foreign Legion, I never nor did any of my brothers get dengue, I was an instructor in French Guyana for a year also was in North Africa for a year and the Middle East around 2 years and we all stayed pretty healthy under pretty disgusting and unsanitary conditions. I had a few bouts of diarrhea here and there but a good tip is go get vaccinated for anything you can. Only vaccination you can't get as a civilian and don't really need is Anthrax. Also a old trick we'd use in French Guyana and rub our bodies with Apple cider vinegar after we showered, maybe it was psychological but seemed to work against mosquitoes fairly well.

Good luck with that - they got you good with the propaganda:

Quote:That’s because data from the studies used to approve the vaccine — called Dengvaxia, and produced by Sanofi Pasteur — showed a higher rate of hospitalizations for dengue three years after vaccination in young children who got the vaccine when compared to children who were unvaccinated.

Yup - that is exactly what I would have expected.

When the WHO globalist shitheads call for caution when using it, then the vaccine is super-dangerous - way over the level of the HPV one where dozens of girls did not even leave the doctor's office after the shot - being dead or severely damaged.

Well I'm certainly not claiming to be an infectious disease expert by any stretch of the imagination but I can say we had zero cases and were living in hot spots for it. And that's all I can give from my experience.

I'm not sure what you mean by the good luck with that statement as if it was something I recently had and was expecting results. Also I did not have a choice in the matter regarding my vaccinations so I did not fall for anything.

At any rate thanks for sharing the article, all I saw in it was various professional opinions that both discouraged and supported the vaccination under curtain conditions despite the headline. Upon further research of the articles author I can't say I'd put much weight into anything she says. Google Helen Branswell, or just read her twitter feed.

Also one thing I'm curious about regarding the article you shared is I wonder if all of us had at some point had Dengue, that was pretty interesting to read.

Not trying to debate you or anything, so don't take my response the wrong way.

I like the idea of using natural supplements to boost the body's own immune system and natural defenses. I just wanted to point out that the human body can only absorb so much Vitamin C per day. I just discovered this fact recently after discussing the issue with a Naturopathic Doctor. I later performed my own research and verified that this is true. For example, here is an article by Andrew Weil, a well-know holistic health professional and author of "Spontaneous Healing" and many other books. (BTW: That is an awesome book.)

https://www.drweil.com/vitamins-suppleme...vitamin-c/

Much of the high-dose Vitamin C hypothesis stems from decades ago. Although Linus Pauling himself took huge doses of Vitamin C, even the Linus Pauling Institute now acknowledges that the human body reaches a plateau. (Linus Pauling was a Nobel Prize winner and a huge advocate of Vitamin C.)

Quote:That said, if you want to keep plasma vitamin C levels as high as possible over time, it is best to take multiple doses spread out throughout the day. While small doses (under 200 mg) are completely absorbed, only a fraction of a single large dose of ascorbic acid can be absorbed at one time (500 mg or more). Spacing the doses out will increase the overall absorption.

You can take vitamin C every few hours, but it becomes a difficult practice to keep up. Some people recommend taking vitamin C supplements twice a day, and this likely strikes the best balance between practicality and maintaining high levels in the blood.

Just be aware that when ascorbic acid levels are high in the blood for a long period of time, the body tries to remove it by increasing the amount excreted in the urine. Thus, if you take multiple large doses throughout the day (say, every two hours), most will be either unabsorbed or quickly excreted.

http://blogs.oregonstate.edu/linuspaulin...vitamin-c/

I am not knocking Vitamin C by any means. Taking Vitamin C is smart. You just may need to take modest doses (e.g., 200 mg) every few hours, while exposed to tropical diseases, to obtain the full benefit.

BTW: My post is about prevention. I take no position on using mega-doses of Vitamin C as a cure for an already existing disease. I have read about too many cases of "spontaneous healing" to criticize any natural remedy. The body has an amazing penchant for healing itself, if given half a chance.

Thieves oil is an essential oil blend that is based on a story from around the 15th century when the Bubonic Plague was running rampant through Europe. Four thieves from Europe, who were notoriously robbing the infectious dead bodies of all their possessions, miraculously never contracted that highly infectious plague. Although the exact formula is lost in the mists of time, modern versions are available. Any natural supplements that boost the immune system are likely to help prevent contracting these tropical diseases (Vitamin C, zinc, bee propolis, echinacea, goldenseal, etc.). Good luck!

I think you would have known if you had it, although guess the affects are different for everyone. For me the flu like symptoms are fairly mild, I can deal with a fever, headache, sore throat, fatigue etc. Not nice but still possible to go about daily business without too many issues.

The joint and muscle pain though is almost unbearable, started mainly in my legs now its back, arms, abs.. feels like every single muscle is exploding. I can move around the house, just, but there's no way I could do anything more physical. I'm usually in very good health and rarely get sick.

Will start with the vit c today and update how it goes.

Forget vaccinations unless the cost-benefit analysis is skewed heavily in your favor, which is seldom the case. I dose myself with immune-boosting supplements for several weeks before an international trip. I also travel with a "health kit" based on this book.

Packing vitamins and herbs that perform multiple functions saves space and weight when packing. For example, packing half an ounce of peppermint oil can help settle the stomach, sooth muscle pain, unclog sinuses, help with itchy skin, and even chase away bed bugs in a hotel (by sprinkling it in your bedding).

Quote:Peppermint Oil To Repel Bugs

Growing up in mosquito country, one of my favorite uses for peppermint oil is definitely to repel bugs!

A study that was published out of Israel last year compared how 7 different commercial bug repellants fared against each other. As you’d expect it, the All-Natural Essential Oil Mosquito Repellent (which is a blend of cinnamon, eugenol, geranium, peppermint, and lemongrass oils) was tied as the most effective mosquito repellant with OFF!® (which is loaded with toxic chemicals like DEET). A further study showed that peppermint oil resulted in 150 minutes of complete protection time against mosquitos, with just 0.1 mL of oil applied on the arms.(6) The researchers noted that after 150 minutes, the efficacy of peppermint oil decreased, and needed to be reapplied.

https://draxe.com/peppermint-oil-uses-benefits/

Quote:Conclusions

The peppermint essential oil is proved to be efficient larvicide and repellent against dengue vector. Further studies are needed to identify the possible role of oil as adulticide, oviposition deterrent and ovicidal agent. The isolation of active ingredient from the oil could help in formulating strategies for mosquito control.

The Hep A/B vaccine is mandatory for all travellers to third world.Such a cheap, simple precaution.

Those blood borne mosquito virus are bastard hard to protect yourself against. You can try the long sleeves, repellant... but eventually one is going to get you.

That doctor is the usual mainstream bullshit pusher out there. There are thousands of studies out there and anyone who has used vitamin C in high doses knows that far far more is absorbed than those mythical 200mg - especially when you are a sick.

I took sometimes 100.000mg in 24h with astounding results during a cold.

I really have to do my datasheet and simply refer people there, because boy this is getting nuts. Yeah - according to Dr. Weil 60 vaccines in a few years for kids are fine, but 500mg of vitamin C in one dose is not. One time in the future we will look back and see the medical system of our times for what it is - a system of real science mixed with sudo-science that is fostered for various monetary and political goals.

My point is that you really need to research this stuff before taking action. There is a big difference between using high doses of Vitamin C in supplement form as a preventative measure versus using high doses as a cure. I am a huge proponent of using Vitamin C. I am just saying to use it wisely and to do your research. In fact, the web link that you provided to Dr. Mercola contains an article that definitively supports my point regarding only using it as a high-dose supplement in an emergency situation:

Quote:Indeed, while I do not recommend taking high doses of vitamin C on a daily basis, I'm absolutely convinced it is a key staple that belongs in everyone's home emergency kit. In cases of acute illness, I recommend taking 2 to 3 grams of vitamin C per HOUR until you feel better. Note that most people will get loose stools with conventional oral vitamin C, which is why the vitamin C should be liposomal. This prevents the loose stools and provides blood levels similar to IV vitamin C without the expense or inconvenience.

In my experience, this high dose liposomal C every hour will typically reverse acute illnesses within 24 hours or so. Just make sure it is liposomal vitamin C. I always travel with a bottle of this and regularly give it away to clinicians I see who have come down with an acute infection.

For general health, it's fairly easy to get sufficient amounts of vitamin C from food, so supplements are usually not necessary. I grow acerola cherries, which are particularly high in vitamin C. Each cherry provides about 80 mg of vitamin C. I will sometimes eat up to 100 cherries a day, giving me about 8 grams of vitamin C — far above the recommended daily intake of 90 mg/day.

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articl...epsis.aspx

In fact, the same article states that for some people high doses of Vitamin C can be fatal, including for an estimated 1 in 10 African-American males. I am not sure why you are criticising the need to perform simple research. We are both advocates of using Vitamin C. I am simply saying do not take anyone's word as gospel, including yours or mine. Everyone should take personal responsibility and do their own research.

Quote:Potential Contraindication

G6PD is an enzyme your red blood cells need to maintain membrane integrity. High-dose IV vitamin C is a strong prooxidant, and giving a prooxidant to a G6PD-deficient individual can cause their red blood cells to rupture, which could have disastrous consequences.

Fortunately, G6PC deficiency is relatively uncommon, and can be tested for. People of Mediterranean and African descent are at greater risk of being G6PC deficient. Worldwide, G6PD deficiency is thought to affect 400 million individuals, and in the U.S. an estimated 1 in 10 African-American males have it.31

Again bullshit - there is not one death of vitamin C overdose in the world, while there are millions in terms of overuse of every kind of med in the fucking world.

The only deaths you have are from iron supplements and orthomolecular docs warn about them.

As for Mercola - I look at part of his stuff, but would not call him an orthomolecular doctor.

Interesting that you have gravitated towards him rather than the thousands of studies and reports on the other sites.

You can use vitamin megadoses for healing rather easily, but sure - it takes more experience. IV doses is not something that you should do on your own anyway. The oral way is the home-application usage.

I use it and my entire extended family for years - even my mother has started to reverse slight Diabetes from folk with simple high dosage levels of vitamin D3 and vitamin K (which has astonished the doctor of the person she consulted).

Go have some experiences first on your own, read more, before you speak of fatal reactions that 800 mio. blacks might have if they get 10k of vitamin C via IV.

There is a ton of bullshitting across the board.
