New York.– Health authorities in North Carolina, Nebraska, Tennessee and Indiana reported their first confirmed chikungunya cases on Friday, while Florida remains with the most number of cases in the United States with 25.

The cases in the U.S. have not been transmitted by local mosquitoes, but rather carried by recent travelers to the Caribbean where the virus is raging, where at least 20 countries and territories have been affected. The Dominican Republic has the largest outbreak of suspected cases.

According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, health officials are monitoring suspected chikungunya cases in the states of New York, California, Arkansas, Maryland, Connecticut, Nevada, Minnesota, Virginia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

All that it will take is for one mosquito to bite one of these returning tourists and then to bite someone local. That will be the beginning of a local hot spot and it will spread from there. Many people will be seriously disappointed to find that the medical industry has little to offer other than pain killers what will not be completely effective.

The upside is that it will open the door to a couple of alternatives. People who have already been taking a good colloidal silver will likely have reduced over-all effects. A number of people will seek out naturopaths, health food stores, and other alternative therapists who have Rife machines and zappers such as ParaZapper.

Perhaps the silver lining is that people will figure out that the medical pro's do not have all the answers and that there are alternatives that can actually work.

Yes your correct it's coming from tourists.... The US IS VERY EXCITED THOUGH FEW MONTHS AGO THE DR GOVT PUT OUT A PRESS RELEASE. OUR DOMINICAN DOCTORS AND SCIENTISTS ARE WORKING DAY AND NIGHT TO FIND A CURE FOR CHIKUNGUNYA ..... DOMINICANS can SLEEP WELL KNOWING THIS.....THE DR IS THE BIGGEST AND BEST IN THE CARRIBEAN....LETS ALL PRAY THIS SUNDAY AT CHURCH WE NEED THIS CURE AND FAST WE DONT WANT OUR ASTRONAUTS GETTING SICK AND INTERFERE WITH THE DOMINICAN SPACE PROGRAM.

The medical profession has known about the Rife machine for over 80 years and has done everything that they can to suppress it. It does not make them money. While the Hulda Clark Zapper is not quite as effective, they really do not like it because it is relatively cheap. Do not expect these scientist and medical professionals to bring forth or suggest any cure unless it is profitable to them.

Have you googled this rife machine? Many people have died beacause of this machine there havent been anyone surviving from the invention of this machine yet.

Actually, if you look into the real facts, no one has died from the Rife machine. The drug companies spread a lot of false propaganda. Rife machines are very harmless and can kill bacteria and virus. The same people that criticize Rife machines, etc. fail to tell you the dismal and horrific death rates of those who fail chemo, radiation, etc. Strictly because those options are very profitable. Do not believe every thing that you read, especially from Google.

The US medical system is a big failure. They have the biggest and best hospitals, the so call best doctors, the most knowledgeable on drugs. why is it that they have one of the highest cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and can't even cure heart burn.
For emergencies they are the best but after that they suck. They are the number one killer in the US just google it.

Zapper you are to far ahead of these people that are on 10 different prescriptions and think they are healthy. I cured my dengue with colloidal silver and surprised the doctor.

Martin, you are right. Colloidal silver is amazing but I will bet that your doctor has told no one about it, no matter how surprised he is. Everyone has heard the phrase born with a silver spoon in his mouth but they think that the reason is that silver has monetary value. They are missing the point. Babies and children that are fed with a silver spoon have a big health advantage. The health advantage leads to financial advantage because you do not end up with big doctor bills.

Really???? Look at the life expectancy comparing US and DR do your research please!!!!
Written by: zapper, 15 Jun 2014 9:37 PM

I agree that life expectancy in the DR is low and that there are some reasons for that. But tell me. Why would the US be 35th with the highest health cost? Actually, it was 43rd a couple of years ago so either the US has improved or some other nations have dropped.

True, the DR is below 100 and that is a big ouch! Poverty is always a contributor to poor health as is poor sanitation.

I can not do much to change that problem, but I can let people know that there are genuine alternatives that can significantly help.

I agree with you, the healthcare cost skyrocketed for the last couple of years, i also agree with you about alternatives, however beeing very powefull these drug companies and they have very strong lobby to control the prices that they are untouchable, meanwhile we pay for what they sell to us nothing we can do.

Longevity in the US was because of sanitation and not the medical. Even with the so called best medical they still don't live any longer than some third word countries like the blue zones around the world
Life expectancy in the United States ranks 26th out of the 36 member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD .

Actually, Martin is correct. Most of the lifespan improvements have come from the improved sanitation in the US. Medicine probably shortens life. The exception might be trauma care which in the US is fairly good.

A complete lack of junk food and the best nutrition and the cleanest air in the world will not stop the fatalities of cholera, malaria, dengue, or rotovirus. All of those are the result of poor sanitation. Life span is not just old age, it is also a result of the percentage of children who somehow survive. One very reason that US mortality statistics are bad is due to lacking of proper neonatal care among the poor. The same is true in many 3rd world countries. So, yes, good nutrition is important but proper sanitation is the trump card of lifespan. Health care, on the other hand is a trade off . The hospital is still the most common place where people go to die and medication is a frequent cause of death.

I come from a family of Doctors and Dentists here in puerto plata and santiago. I strongly dissagree that the health care system in the USA is a big failure. No one in there right mind would agree with it being a failure. Many dominican doctors spent years practicing in the USA and returned. Not one I know says things like this..No country is perfect but without the research done in the usa the world would be worse off. You can argue all you want but its not true.

That is the falsehood that they present as truth. The truth is that they promote what is profitable but entirely leave out things that work but are not profitable.

I will give you a perfect example. A leading cause of death is from coronary disease that results from plaque in the arteries. Since this plaque contains some cholesterol, they blame the cholesterol and give statin drugs that do not significantly reduce future occurrences and increase death from other related causes such as liver damage. The truth is that the body needs cholesterol and actually manufactures it. Why then does the cholesterol appear in the arteries as plaque? The body uses cholesterol to patch cracks in the arteries. Why do the cracks appear? Most due to insufficient vitamin C and Niacin ( the real vitamin B3 ).

That is right, taking Niacin ( which causes a flush ) and C, you can literally undo the damage and heal the cracked arteries and reduce cholesterol as well.

Taking 3 grams a day of true B3 - niacin will reduce the rate of heart failure by 90 percent. That is almost 10 times what any statin drug can do. This has been proven in studies, so why has your doctor not told you this and why does your doctor prescribe statin drugs that cause severe muscle, liver, and actually even heart problems when you get older?

Not only does Niacin save lives this way but it significantly reduces stroke, high blood pressure, cancer and many other things that cause premature death.

Why do you not find Niacin on the vitamin shelf? They give less effective niacinamide and nicotinamide.

Why do the vitamins that you buy in the store not contain the real vitamins? They actually contain the wrong form of a similar substance that is generally useless. There are many studies that have shown that ( store vitamins ) are practically worthless. So why do they not sell you the real vitamins in actual quantities that actually provide benefit? Money!

well zapper are you a doctor or do you just read and repeat things. There was a doctor in the USA who almost died drinking small doses of Drano. His wife had a cow when he almost died experimenting with removing plaque.He finally got it correct i heard. I have first hand experience with plaque. i was 98 percent plugged up by it.on the downstream side I had plenty of vitamin c and niacin in my life. Probably too much. My blood pressure was 325 over 280 when i went in to hospital. I would like some more info on how you think vitamin c and niacin work better then the drugs. I totally do not believe that doctors in the USA promote what is popular to get profits. You are NOT spreading the truth.at all. this is just your opinion

So, lets talk about health research in the US. Oh! There is not any. There is profitable medical research in the US, but that is not the same.

Electricity has been known to kill microbes such as bacteria since way back, but where is the research on using electricity to treat illness and cure disease? It has been shown in studies ( that have been suppressed by the way ) that as little as 1.5 volts can kill certain bacteria and other microbes. The pharmaceutical industry owns or controls most of the medical and health journals and they refuse to publish this information. They are guilty of murdering the many people who can be saved.

There are devices that produce Low Voltage Pulsed Electric Fields LVPEF using just a simple 9 volt battery that can be easily shown to kill a great many microbes in water and water based environments as well as in laboratory petri dishes, etc.

Yet, where is the research? Why is this technology being surpressed? Drugs make profit! Electricity is ch

Well Gomas, How do you know that you had sufficient Niacin or Ascorbic acid? The RDA is a farce. Basically, the levels published for RDA are barely above complete malnutrition levels.

By the way, I am not a doctor but went to graduate school in BioMedical Engineering. I was hired out of school before I finished my Masters.

The doctor who used draino was very ignorant of both chemistry and arterial plaque. Draino is an alkali which is basically the opposite of what is needed because the plaque also normally contains calcium. It also contains fibrin in many cases.

Do you know the difference between minimum and optimum? The health industry never looks at optimum. they only care that you are within a normal range. They do not think about that fact that if you increase some things and reduce some others that you will be healthier and as a result, you will likely live much longer.

Your body can not produce vitamin C and it uses up over half that is present in 4 hours.
Written by: zapper, 16 Jun 2014 4:11 PM

Your body can not produce vitamin C and it uses up over half that is present in 4 hours. This means that you need about 500 mg of vitamin C every 4 hours in order to insure that your body always has what it needs.

If you do not maintain this level, your arteries get stiff and crack, your tendons and ligaments get week and tear more easily, your skin ages faster. You are also more likely to develop varicose veins.

One important thing about vitamin C is that it is used in many important metabolic pathways that prevent aging. Not having enough vitamin C slows all of the process and allows aging to occur at a more rapid pace.

You said that you had sufficient niacin? That means that you had a niacin flush every day for several hours. Sufficient niacin opens your capillaries and allows increased blood flow and this is how it lowers your blood pressure.

If you doubt what I say about Niacin, look up the Abram Hoffer study. This was the first but was not as significant as the two studies that followed. Dr. E. Boyle also did a study that showed a 90 percent reduction in mortality. The Coronary drug project was started in 1966 which was designed to assess the long term efficacy and safety of five compounds in 8341 men, ages 30 to 64, who had suffered a myocardial infarction. About 8000 men were still alive at the end of the treatment trial in 1975. The expected mortality was 60 per year but the result was 6 per year!

The facts are that the medical system was taken over by the drug companies it is now a for profit industry. They doctors are trained in universities funded by dug companies and when the graduate the drug companies send their representatives to their offices.
The facts a Johns Hopkins study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that revealed that: Each year in America, medical doctors make 190,000 diagnostic mistakes in their private practices resulting in the deaths or serious injuries of 150,000 patients.
The facts February 5, 2007 issue of the USA Today newspaper that quoted the Journal of the American Medical Association and the federal Centers of Disease Control in Atlanta,
Georgia medical doctors ‘kill, injure and infect 15 million Americans in hospitals and clinics’
