No, no. No more profits in ObamaCareland! Doctors will make sacrifices- they should work for peanuts to help others! And you shoudl volunteer for free to help others! People like you making money is the root of all health care ills (according to the president)

Actually they do pay you, however Congress made it against the law to pay for participation, so they break it down by paying you for blood taken and follow up visits. It depends on how much they are paying total for participation, but in essence you would get between $25 and $100 for going in for follow up blood draws.

The blood is taken and it is just a vial, to test your immune response to the virus. What they do is take your blood after vaccination and under a hood expose it to the virus, and then see how your white blood cells respond to it.

I used to find volunteers for govt. drug and vaccine studies, and I know there is a lot of paranoia, but I can assure you that the safeguards in place now are so stringent that you will not be given anything else, tricked, or lied to.

The checks will always clear as well, and you should get your checks the same day you come in to do your follow up blood draws. They will also clear and will most likely be done by a civilian company.

I would be a testy. It would be nice to make some money off of it, but as more time passes the more people are passing away from this horrible illness. If I had a chance to help people all across the world, ill be the first one in line.

You're a hoot! I particularly like this one:

"but I can assure you that the safeguards in place now are so stringent that you will not be given anything else, tricked, or lied to."

Hee, hee... of course the government and pharmaceutical companies would NEVER lie to us! And the fact that Kathleen Sebelius, US Secretary of Health and Human Services, has just signed a decree granting vaccine makers total legal immunity from any lawsuits that result from any new "Swine Flu" vaccine should give you no reason to worry whatsoever!

We have criminals running our government (for decades now... The partisan "divide" is theater). If you want to put your life in their hands, you are a fool.

My suggestion then is that you practise what you preach, and do not get any of the Hep strain vaccines, the chicken pox vaccine, any flu vaccine, tetanus shots, take any antibiotics, throw out your cholesterol medication, and stay away from your otc meds as well, as all of them are only made available because there were people willing to participate in the human studies for them.

But you won't do that, you would rather just bitch and moan, and let everyone else do the work. You are the one who is a "hoot".

That's excellent advice -- throw out those meds! That way, you won't need to take medication to deal with side effects from the OTHER medication!

On a related note, I wonder how Baxter pharmaceutical company managed to mix LIVE Avian Flu virus (H5N1) with common flu virus in a recent vaccine batch. Sounds almost like they're working on bioweapons rather than vaccines, because that can't happen even with lax "safeguards."

Yes, that's sounds like our old Governor, Kathleen Sebelius,,sucking up to the drug companies and walking over the bodies of those injured by crappy vaccines, just to line her pockets with $$$$.
We're glad to be rid of her!

Thank you for the information on how the effectiveness of the vaccine is tested. I was wondering how it worked.
As a parent of two "high risk" kids, I am eagerly awaiting a vaccine to become available. Flu vaccines allow my kids to be active in the community during the flu season without a high risk of getting the flu.

If I'm understanding MaFritz's post correctly, you will already have been "vaccinated" before the effectiveness is tested. Given the recent accounts of very serious contamination in Baxter Pharmaceutical vaccines (containing live Avian flu virus!) and the 1976 Swine Flu "epidemic" in which one person died from the virus while 30 died from the vaccine (with hundreds more suffering from vaccine-induced Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralyzing nerve disease, immediately after taking the shot).

(oops... didn't finish the post. Last sentence):

... and if you follow deep politics, it isn't clear that the pharmaceuticals are even well-meaning. Marvin is right. The recent Baxter "contamination" (not just highly improbable, but impossible unless it was intentional) suggests bioweapon rather than vaccine.

Please consider this before having your children vaccinated:

The shot also contains Triton X100 (a strong detergent), table sugar, resin that is known to cause allergic reactions, and an antibiotic (Gentamycin). Multi-dose vials also contain thimerosal, a preservative made with mercury, a known neurotoxin. Infants and children are most at risk for neurological damage from mercury because their nervous systems are still developing. Neurological dysfunctions are also common in adults who have ingested mercury.

If my youngest son catches the flu, he has a far better chance of dying than living. He is has been hospitalized and on a ventilator when he has caught the common cold. And NO he was not injured by previous vaccines, he has an inherited neuromuscular disease. I'll take my chances on the vaccine. Were it not for vaccines, my son, who is quite a social creature, would be forced inside away from his peers for a large part of his life.

It's this kind of fear-mongering that anti-vaccine people push that keep people from getting their children immunized and put all children at risk from diseases which can and do kill kids. Were it not for modern medicine, I fear that I would have buried both of my sons at an unfairly early age.

Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

One of the inventors has poor respiratory health, has had repeated bouts with pneumonia, colds, flu, asthma, and has been recently diagnosed with the initial stages of emphysema--despite all that modern medicine has had to offer. This first inventor also comes from a family known for a long history of respiratory problems. Therefore, the inventors decided to look beyond conventional "modern medicine" to help the first inventor, and as a result, have conceived methods to substantially prevent colds, flus, and infections of the human respiratory system. These methods include the inhalation of the vapors from eucalyptus oil and/or tea tree oil that are theorized to form a protective, and infection-preventing, thin layer within the entire respiratory system, including the lungs, bronchial tubes, and the nasal cavities. This thin layer maintains its anti-pathogenic properties for a period of time following the inhalation of the vapors for at least one-half hour, and perhaps longer. This thin anti-pathogenic layer substantially prevents the initial infection of colds, flus, and other pathogens for a period of time following inhalation. The inventors also propose the prophylactic use of inhaled eucalyptus oil and/or tea tree to prevent additional pathogenic infections such as tuberculosis, which is becoming a major health problem in the United States.

1. Field of the Invention

The field of invention relates to the prevention of colds, flus, and other pathogens within the respiratory system of human beings by the inhalation of vapors from highly volatile essential oils such as eucalyptus oil and/or tea tree oil. Following the inhalation of the vapors, a thin anti-pathogenic layer is formed in the respiratory system that protects against infection for a certain duration of time following inhalation.

2. Description of the Prior Art

While certain medical uses for eucalyptus oil and tea tree oil have been previously disclosed, to the inventor's best knowledge, none of those previously disclosed methods have suggested, or proposed, that the periodic inhalation of eucalyptus oil and/or tea tree oil may be used as prophylactic agents to substantially prevent infection of colds, flus, and other pathogens within the respiratory system of human beings for a duration of time following that inhalation. AFTER the infection of human beings with certain pathogens, previous inhalation therapies have suggested using eucalyptus oil and or tea tree oil to aid in the recovery from certain respiratory diseases. However, none of these previous methods have suggested using eucalyptus oil and/or tea tree oil as prophylactic agents to routinely and substantially PREVENT the initial infection of pathogens for a duration of time following their inhalation as a primary method of preventing disease.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

An object of the invention is to provide methods to prevent the initial infection of pathogens within the human respiratory system by the inhalation of vapors from eucalyptus oil or from any of its constituents.

Another object of the invention is to provide methods to prevent the initial infection of pathogens within the human respiratory system by the inhalation of vapors from tea tree oil or from any of its constituents.

Yet another object of the invention is to prevent respiratory infections from pathogens including bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

And yet another object of the invention is provide methods to substantially prevent diseases such as colds and flus.

Yet another object of the invention is to provide methods to substantially prevent all varieties of pneumonia.

Yet further, another object of the invention is to provide methods to substantially prevent the spread of tuberculosis.

And finally, another object of the invention is to provide an inhaler apparatus conveniently made to provide vapors from essential oils such as eucalyptus oil and/or tea tree oil for inhalation into the human respiratory system.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

FIG. 1 shows a section view of a hand-held atomizer apparatus to produce vapors from eucalyptus oil and/or tea tree oil for inhalation to prevent pathogens from infecting the human respiratory system.


*Yet other references show that the vapors from these particular natural
botanical essential oils also have antipathogenic qualities.*

*So, it is entirely logical to ask the following questions:*

*Question 1: Can inhaled vapors from antiseptic botanical essential
oils, such as Eucalyptus Oil and Tea Tree Oil, be used to reduce the
probability of infection from the swine flu virus?*

*Question 2: Are the inhaled vapors from antiseptic essential oils,
such as Eucalyptus Oil and Tea Tree Oil, as effective as using face
masks to fight infection from the swine flu virus?*

*Question 3: Are the inhaled vapors from antiseptic essential oils,
such as Eucalyptus Oil and Tea Tree Oil, as effective as using
antiseptic substances on the hands to prevent infection from the swine
flu virus?*

*Question 4: When coughing, how many infectious viral particles are
emitted into the surrounding air from the lungs of a person infected
with the swine flu?*

*Question 5: If an individual has inhaled vapors from antiseptic
essential oils, such as Eucalyptus Oil and Tea Tree Oil, one half hour
before inhaling viral particles emitted from the lungs of a person
infected with the swine flu, is the probability for infection reduced?*

*Question 6: Can periodically inhaling vapors from antiseptic essential
oils, such as Eucalyptus Oil and Tea Tree Oil, reduce the probability of
infection from the swine flu virus in enclosed areas such as within
airplanes, buses and trains?*

*Question 7: What is the general efficacy of inhaling relatively
volatile antiseptic substances, which are safe to inhale, to fight
infection from various different pathogens?*

*We wish to locate university and corporate research partners who will
assist us to definitively answer the above questions, and to investigate
the general antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties of
natural botanical essential oils. We are seeking research partners with
the genuine expertise definitively to answer these pertinent and timely
research questions. While we do have much evidence in support of the
general efficacy and benefit of inhaling the vapors from the volatile,
botanical essential oils, such as Eucalyptus Oil and Tea Tree Oil, we
wish to form relationships with research partners who may wish
to conduct the standard placebo controlled double-blind studies or other
well accepted testing procedures.*
