Six Key Supplements and Other Information to Help Survive Ricin, Anthrax and Other Biological Terrorism Agents


(The Best Years in Life) The terrorism at the Boston Marathon and the letters sent to elected government representatives which tested positive for the deadly poison ricin have once again brought home the reality that what we would like to believe is unthinkable can and does happen. Here is a compilation of information about six key supplements and other information which could make a big difference in surviving exposure to poisons such as ricin, anthrax and other biological terrorism agents.

Six Key Supplements:

Activated charcoal not only absorbs toxins, it actually absorbs them (which means it toxins are attracted to the charcoal).  Toxins which are attracted and absorbed by the charcoal are then quickly passed through the digestive system or, in many instances, are expelled from the body even more quickly by vomiting.

Food grade diatomaceous earth is effective in removing toxins. As it passes through the digestive tract not only does it absorb and trap pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa but it also traps and absorbs toxins, eliminating them from the body.

Zeolite Minerals are naturally occurring volcanic mineral compounds with a negative magnetic charge and a unique crystalline cage-like structure which draws in many harmful toxins.

Bentonite Clay helps to cleanse the body’s cells and colon by pulling toxins out and eliminating them via the colon, kidneys and liver.

Colloidal Silver is a must-have supplement if the poison is a biological agent since colloidal silver is deadly for most single-celled pathogens, including viruses and bacteria.  In the event of anthrax or a biological agent, take plenty of it - up to eight ounces or more per day for the first few days and a couple of ounces a day thereafter until the threat has passed.

Digestive Enzymes - Digestive enzymes taken in quantity on an empty stomach will literally strip off the protective outer layer and head of viruses.  Take ten capsules of systemic oral digestive enzymes three times daily on an empty stomach for seven days or until the threat has passed.

A very good protocol which includes some of the above supplements and more can be found here:

Herbal preparations and key supplements can help bridge the gap between uncontrollable bacterial and viral infections and ineffective pharmaceutical antibiotics. The herbs often play a supportive role. Echinacea, for example, won't directly kill infectious bacteria, but it may help the body's own immune defenses overcome them. A strong immune system helps the body fight its own battles. Ginger tea is a good example of a traditional diaphoretic with anti-inflammatory and painkilling properties. The bark of the South American pau d'arco tree kills fungal infections, and viruses and bacteria. And garlic's antibacterial actions have been recognized since 1858.Spices such as turmeric and pepper spices, are shown to inhibit the growth of numerous bacteria.  Most herbs function as natural drugs. Many herbs have antibacterial or antiviral properties.  We will describe some of the most important herbs and six key supplements useful for managing anthrax, ricin and other bioterrorism agents.

Natural Antibiotic Herbs for Anthrax: 

  • Garlic - Anthrax is most susceptible to garlic. Garlic is a natural antibiotic that stimulates the immune system and increases the effectiveness of white blood cells and T cells. It blocks toxin production by germs. It also possesses broad-spectrum bacteriostatic and bactericidal properties. In other words, it either stops the growth of or kills bacteria. Garlic, undoubtedly, is a key to achieving optimal immunity and protecting against infections.

  • Echinacea - Echinacea is one of the best-known immune- enhancing herbs.

  • It is effective for treating both acute and recurrent infections. It is effective against a wide range of microbes, including many viruses, bacteria, and fungi.

  • Chinese Ginseng (Panax ginseng) - Herbalists say that ginseng affects the immune control centers of the central nervous system, directly and indirectly through adrenocortical hormones, toning, increasing output, or simply restoring equilibrium.

  • Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceous) - Astragalus helps the body resist virus infections, particularly in the lungs, by increasing production of interferon, an immune factor that inhibits viral growth. One study demonstrated that chronic bronchitis patients experience significant reduction in symptoms when using astragalus.

  • Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) - According to herbalists, licorice is one of the two or three most important herbs in the world. To the Chinese, there is no other herb that acts on such a grand scale except, perhaps, ginseng. Licorice root is found in more medicinal combinations in Chinese Medicine than any other herb including ginseng.

  • Pau d'arco or Lapacho - Pau d'arco or Lapacho is a great immune system stimulant. One of the strongest actions of lapacho is against viruses. The range of viruses inactivated by lapacho extends from those that cause the common cold to those that are responsible for AIDS. Pau d'arco has been shown to actively inhibit, kill or stunt the growth of several dangerous viruses and bacteria.

  • Wild Indigo (Baptisia tinctoria) - Wild indigo has been used for centuries as a natural antibiotic against infections. Wild indigo has an antibiotic effect on a wide range of microbes, including many bacteria and fungi. It kills the microbe by preventing it from multiplying in the body. Wild indigo also has an immune-enhancing effect. It is also a strong decongestant.

  • Myrrh (Commiphora molmol) - Extracts of myrrh have been shown to enhance phagocytosis, the bacteria-killing effect of white blood cells. Myrrh is effective in fighting a whole range of infections-viral, bacterial, and fungal. It also has a direct antimicrobial effect.

  • Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) - Thyme is one of the best antiseptic substances available. It is valuable in the treatment of infections.

  • Oil of Oregano - Oil of oregano is a natural antibiotic that is more powerful than many prescription antibiotics. Just one part wild oregano oil in 4000 dilution was found to be sufficient to sterilize contaminated water! used for centuries as a natural antibiotic against infections. Wild indigo has an antibiotic effect on a wide range of microbes, including many bacteria and fungi. It kills the microbe by preventing it from multiplying in the body. Wild indigo also has an immune-enhancing effect. It is also a strong decongestant.


 Vitamins and Nutrition for Anthrax and Bioterrorism

  • Vitamin C - Many nutritionists consider vitamin C to be the single most important supplemental nutrient for maintaining a strong, efficient immune system and recovering from infections.  Vitamin C strengthens the immune system. It is a critical nutrient when you contract an infection. It reduces the resistance of antibiotics to bacteria. Vitamin C is important for the proper functioning of white blood cells. It is very effective against infectious diseases. It is an important supplement for the management of anthrax and against bioterrorism.

  • Vitamin A - Vitamin A is a critical Vitamin in enhancing immunity. It plays a key role in maintaining the integrity of all the epithelial surfaces in the body, such as the skin, the lining of the respiratory tracts and digestive tracts. These surfaces are the first to be exposed to external environment and foreign invaders such as anthrax or other biological agents.  Vitamin A, used as a preventative nutritional therapy, is important for preventing complications of anthrax and other biological agents. If you have contracted the disease, the body's need for vitamin A will increase substantially; so extra supplementation will be needed to maintain body's defenses. Use Vitamin A supplementation as a Complementary treatment if you contract anthrax or are under biological attack.

  • The Carotenoids and Beta Carotene - When people eat diet rich in carotenoids, they derive benefits from the carotenoids' antioxidant qualities. Carotenoids are very powerful antioxidants, whereas vitamin A is only a mild antioxidant.  Carotene is an important nutrient in boosting immunity. It is a potent antioxidant. It also appears to help protect us against many forms of cancer.

  • Vitamin E - Vitamin E has a documented effect on supporting immune cell activity and increasing resistance to infections. It both enhances and protects the immune system.

  • Selenium - The importance of selenium in thwarting viral infections is illustrated by the fact that a number of deadly viruses (such as HIV, Ebola, etc.) have emerged from regions in Africa such as Zaire, which appear to be selenium deficient. Due to the important immunity implications of selenium as well as its role in preventing the mutation of viruses, selenium is an important trace element that plays a significant role in the fight against biological agents released by bioterrorists.

  • Coenzyme Q10 (Co Q10) - CoQ10 functions as a powerful antioxidant, much like other antioxidant nutrients, such as vitamins C and E. It has beneficial effects in treating infections and against deadly bacterial infections. We believe that Co Q10 is a great Complementary therapy for bioterrorism. .

  • Amino Acids - Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Twenty are required in human health, and eight of these are considered essential nutrients because the body cannot make them. Several amino acids are important in immune system.

  • Lysine is an anti- infective amino acid. It boosts the body's production of antiviral agents.

  • Carnitine works closely with CoQ10 and transports fats into the mitochondria. Infections appear to deplete carnitine levels. Carnitine supplementation restores the immune response.

  • Several glutathione-containing compounds are involved in immunity, detoxification of hazardous compounds, and quenching free radicals. Glutathione also enhances the activity of the white blood cells.

  • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) - Pyridoxine activates many enzyme systems in the body. It also assists in the absorption of vitamin B-12 and aids immune system function.  Vitamin B6 deficiency can lead to depressed immunity by a decrease in the number and activity of lymphocytes, and a decrease in antibody production.

  • Alpha-lipoic Acid - Antioxidants such as alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl cysteine, and taurine and vitamin C that elevate levels of glutathione, are found to counter the toxicity produced by anthrax.

  • Zinc - Zinc is a major protector of the immune system and an important disease fighter. It is essential for immune system function carried out by the white blood cells.

  • Flavonoids (Bioflavonoids) - Numerous studies have shown that people eating high- flavonoid diets have a lower-than-average risk of developing heart disease and cancer. These nutrients also enhance the activity of white blood cells and boost the body's defenses against a broad range of bacterial and viral infections, from urinary tract infections to HIV.

  • Colloidal Silver - Colloidal Silver is a clinically proven, powerful natural antibiotic. It is believed to kill over 650 different disease-causing pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungus and yeast). Colloidal silver was used widely from the time of Hippocrates until around 1938 when the use of synthetic antibiotics became popular.  Silver in both liquid and airborne-aerosol has been known since 1887 to be extremely toxic to Anthrax spores. Although there is no clearly defined dosage, silver is known to be quite safe and so it would be wise to err on the higher use side if you suspect that you have been exposed to anthrax.  Colloidal Silver is widely available and one of the best sources is Utopia Silver (

  • Bee Propolis and Honey - Modern research has verified several antibacterial applications of honey and propolis. These substances provide a potent preventive against biological agents.

  • Melatonin - Melatonin has been shown to help prevent lethal toxins from anthrax exposure.

  • Iron Chelators - IP6 has been found to have similar iron-chelating properties as desferrioxamine, a drug commonly used to kill germs, tumor cells or to remove undesirable minerals from the body.
