A 10-Step Plan to Enhance Your Immunity against Viral Disease Using Natural Medicines
HIV, hepatitis, influenza, the common cold, herpes, Ebola, Hantavirus, West Nile fever, dengue, TT virus, and bird flu-the viral world keeps posing new major challenges to human health each year. At the same time as this onslaught of emerging powerful viral infections, our antiviral arsenals are losing ground and our immune systems are compromised. Can we handle the next viral epidemic?
In 10 practical steps, Dr. Williams shows how to develop unassailable viral immunity using natural approaches. If you already have a viral infection, these steps will help you reverse its effects; if you're concerned about exposure to one in the future, these steps will give you the keys to prevention. Included in these steps are the best that natural medicine offers: stress management, enzymes, nutrients, detoxification, oxygen therapy, immune modulators, hormones, natural antiviral medicines and anti-inflammatory medicines, Chinese and Western herbs, and more.
Viral immunity is without question one of the most important health issues of this century. In this book, you will find natural ways of improving immune function, remedies to treat viral infections, and suggestions on how to reframe outdated concepts that could otherwise prevent you from obtaining effective treatment.
Praise for Viral Immunity
J. E. Williams, OMD, does an outstanding job of educating the reader - whether lay public or healthcare practitioner - about viruses, viral diseases, and both the conventional and natural approaches to prevention and treatment of viral diseases.
Alan Miller, N.D., Alternative Medicine Review
The author of Viral Immunity has written a timely and important book for both the public and practitioner, as viral diseases are proliferating at a rapid pace. Viral Immunity is the most comprehensive book on viral illness, treatment, and prevention that I have seen, and an essential resource for both practitioners and patients.
Irene Alleger, Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients
Viral Immunity is impeccably researched, painstakingly thorough, beautifully organized, and so gracefully written. It will, I'm sure, be a classic.
Judy Goldstein, MD, former professor of medicine at UCSD School of Medicine and chair of clinical medicine, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine
Dr. Williams is an extraordinary health care professional who has
written a timely and comprehensive book on how to make your body "bulletproof" against the growing onslaught of viral infections. Viral Immunity gives us the answers to preventing and reversing the bewildering array of infections now found in American hospitals and clinics.
Patrick Quillin, Ph.D., author of Immunopower and Beating Cancer with Nutrition
Dr. Williams provides a clear, practical program for boosting your anti-viral defenses. Viral Immunity is a valuable resource for helping you take control of your most valuable possession-your health.
Michael T. Murray, N.D., author of Encyclopedia of Natural Supplements, Healing Power of Herbs, and others
This is an important work and a valuable resource, and succeeds in its goal to help people strengthen their immunity through practical lifestyle changes and natural medicine.
Qingcai Zhang, M.D., author of Healing Hepatitis C with Modern Chinese Medicine
In his excellent book, Viral Immunity, Dr. Williams, who has conducted independent research on natural antiviral compounds and treated viral diseases for two decades, describes how upper respiratory viral epidemics originate in south China, spread to Hong Kong and then worldwide, and he did so a year before anyone heard of SARS. Dr. Williams' work is significant because his experience offers a different, yet scientifically-valid perspective on the current crisis as well as on future problems, which are sure to occur.
Jay Cohen, M.D., author of Over Dose, The Case Against the Drug Companies
Dealing with the realities of possible exposure to SARS or other dangerous viruses forces one to consider the broader issues that Williams delineates in his book: the adverse impact of disintegrative "modernization" patterns on global ecology and individual health, the inability of conventional medical/pharmaceutical approaches to stem the tide of new infectious diseases, and the need for personal lifestyle and public policy changes to reverse these trends of deterioration. We are fortunate to have Viral Immunity as a support and resource for exploring these problems which affect us all!
Victoria B. Cajipe, Ph.D., research physicist
In this well-crafted book, Dr. Williams offers a much needed dose of common sense and holistic wisdom to help us combat current and emerging viral infections. Dr. Williams proposes that a combination of life-enhancing steps can synergistically tilt the balance of health and immunity in our favor. In Viral Immunity we get an invaluable peek into the future of sane medicine.

WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK
It seems every generation has its viral epidemics and pandemics. Historically, smallpox was the great scourge. In 1918, the Spanish Flu killed more people than combat related deaths in World War I. When I was a child, it was polio. Then came AIDS and hepatitis C followed suite. On their trail, Ebola virus loomed out of Africa. In 2003, it was SARS. Next could be the bird flu. These are the big ones, but what about other viruses?
Emerging viruses are one of the most serious threats facing us in the 21st Century. We've created the problem ourselves. Ecological disruption, over population, poverty, immune suppressing drugs, animal feed lots and caged poultry farming practicesthe list goes on, believe meare at the root of the cause. But dark biology can be over come by enlightened medicine.
The Viral Immunity Program consists of a 10-step plan to rebuild your immune system and keep it strong. In the book, you will learn:
- The best natural immune boosters.
- The best herbal antiviral alternatives.
- Effective strategies to treat any viral disease.
- What a virus is and how they make us sick.
- How our immune system protects us.
- What's gone wrong with our immunity and how to reverse the trend.
- Why viral diseases are getting worse and why new ones are appearing at a rapid rate.
- Why traditional Chinese medicines are vital for anti-viral protection.
I wrote this book to teach people and their doctors about viruses, the viral epidemics that are already among us, and the impending specter of a viral pandemic or an even worse case scenario, a deadly mix of viral diseases and natural disasters occurring simultaneously. Many people have benefited already from reading Viral Immunity and applying the principles and using the natural medicines I discuss. My hope is that more will learn how to prevent and treat viral diseases safely and effectively.
