What would your naturopathic doctor suggest to help with this illness? Rife or ParaZapper?

It is an amazing situation that this fever has not been given more publicity and most people do not know what are the symptoms ...They are swelling of the hands, and the wrists and hands go very red and there is much itching ..

What is worse is that this virus infection can turn into extreme arthritis like conditions that continue for months or in some cases even years.

So "18 countries in the region totalling 130,941 cases" of which lil' ol' DR has "77,320", or said another way, DR has 59% of the cases in L.A.

Said even another way, the other 17 countries have Public Health data gathering worse than the DR.

Said even one more way, you can't believe these statistics.

Yes, it is very likely that the statistics for the DR are high relative to other countries. I would feel Confident that It is probably as bad or worse in Haiti.

The important point for the people of the DR is that the virus is present and increasing numbers are becoming ill with it.

Also important is that this disease can be very debilitating.

For that reason, and the fact that the medical profession can not offer any effective treatment, there are alternatives that your naturopath can offer but they must be used immediately at the first sign of illness. The medical profession needs to start studying the use of LVPEF to treat viral illness.

"Tourism" people... That's why you will never get full and reliable negative statistics out of the Dominican Republic government media. Crime and health issues has and will always be hidden to the outside world... In two words: "Unscrupulous behavior"
