Grow Black Elderberries to rid the world of colds and flu.

Something in the juice prevents viral infection of mucus membranes. Elderberries are used by Native American medicine people to "strengthen the inner warrior" Too much provokes allergies.
Protocol: Gargle with 1 cc/ml twice a day AND rinse the sinuses with a sterile saline to which 1 drop of juice has been added to 500 ml. This level of use will prevent infections without raising the immune system into reactive allergic levels. Thanks to the 150 volunteers of various immune levels who helped me reach this protocol and have kept me cold and flu free for six months despite my emphysema

  • Oct 29 2011: I used 150 people of varied immune systems, including myself. I did promise them anonymity.
    I really don't know if I have peers-I am the Chuckpa medico and a forensic anthropologist. I know how to run a double-blind trial and how to avoid the placebo effect when testing a protocol. I feel that the looming virus season called for the release of this simple remedy. I grow Elderberries and other medicines, native and otherwise. Native Americans have used Sambuca nigra to "strengthen the inner warrior" for millenia. I don't remember where I heard that there was something in the juice that prevents viruses from infecting mucus membranes. I didn't even Google it, just ran with the idea of being able to fight back against a social disease we all suffer from. This will not eliminate viral infections, after all, mosquitoes are still spreading malaria as well.
