A new hysteria is being perpetuated by the lame stream media, and people are panicking everywhere about a new biological threat that could ruin their travel and pregnancy plans. However, as usual, there is a degree of sanity that needs to be established before people go cuckoo on the vaccination cocktails, and that can only be done by addressing the truth of the issue, the lies, and a systematic plan to protect yourself.
The media slant and the truth about confirmed cases of the Zika virus
If you are listening to the mainstream media, you probably are already aware that they purport that the Zika virus can cause birth defects and brain damage. As a result, health authorities are urging women to not get pregnant and warning others to abandon travel plans to areas where the “outbreak” is in full effect.
While the birth defect (microcephaly) is real, the cause is still very cloudy and is being pinned on a virus that does not hold up in confirmed cases of microcephaly. Of the initial 4,180 suspected cases of microcephaly, only 270 have been confirmed by Brazil’s Health Ministry as actual microcephaly. Of these 270 cases, only 6 can be traced back to the Zika virus. This effectively means that 264 of the cases involving microcephaly don’t show a trace of the Zika virus.
The more logical reason behind the rise in birth defects in Brazil
In 2014, the Brazilian Minster of Health mandated that all newly expectant mothers get the new Tdap vaccine. This effectively meant that at 20 weeks a very fragile, undeveloped, and precious life is directly exposed to aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, antibiotics, and other toxic elements that could easily damage the fetus’s brain. This is a much more likely scenario than the mother contracting an asymptomatic viral infection that leads to very dramatic birth defects.
As a result of this toxic experiment gone bad, the biotech industry can use mosquitos (nature) to pin the blame on rather than the more glaring suspects of Tdap vaccines and insecticides.
How to protect yourself from the Zika virus
Having said all that, it isn’t a bad idea to protect yourself from any insect bites, especially mosquitos. Some of the easier first line of defences is to wear appropriate clothing in more mosquito infected areas (covering as much skin as possible), and using natural insect repellants (that don’t contain DEET) such as essential oils of citronella, cedar wood, patchouli, tea tree, eucalyptus, lavender, mint, and clove.

Also, ramp up your internal battle ground (your immune system), by being grounded (especially after travel), getting plenty of Vitamin D, upping vitamin C, consuming adaptogenic herbs (reishi, astragalus, echinacea), and consuming plenty of enzyme and probiotic rich foods and beverages like sauerkraut, water kefir, and apple cider vinegar.
