Ebola - Symptoms, Transmission, Treatments and Prophecy
August 12, 2014
The Ebola virus derived its name from a river in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), in Africa, where it was first recognized. (1) There are 4 subtypes of Ebola virus, three of which can infect humans. The virus is believed to have originated in the tropical jungles of Africa and may have an animal host (fruit bats and monkeys) for its origin. Ebola belongs to a class of viruses known as hemorrhagic viruses. Hemorrhagic virus are known to cause bleeding and may cause death by excess bleeding.
Other types of Hemorrhagic viruses
On March 1, 1952, an article in the British Medical Journal discussed an epidemic of a hemorrhagic virus in Korea known as "Songo Fever" where it attacked United Nations forces in Korea. In 1939, the Japanese reported the same disease and called it "Kokka" disease. The British Medical Journal said the origin of this disease was thought to be a mite that was transmitted by a field mouse. Symptoms include fever, rash, myalgia, and albuminuria that lasts about 7 days. In severe cases there may be haemoptysis, haematemesis, haematuria, and melaena. The Japanese report the fatality rate at 13%. It is reported that antibiotics did not work.
Viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) are of animal and human origin and may be caused by RNA viruses including Arenaviridae, Filoviridae, Bunyaviridae, Flaviviridae, and Rhabdoviridae. "All types of VHF are characterized by fever and bleeding disorders and all can progress to high fever, shock and death in many cases." (2)
Wikipedia also reports:
"Signs and symptoms of VHFs include (by definition) fever and increased susceptibility to bleeding (bleeding diathesis). Manifestations of VHF often also include flushing of the face and chest, small red or purple spots (petechiae), frank bleeding, swelling caused by edema, low blood pressure (hypotension), and shock. Malaise, muscle pain (myalgia), headache, vomiting, and diarrhea occur frequently. The severity of symptoms varies with the type of virus, with the “VHF syndrome” (capillary leak, bleeding diathesis, and circulatory compromise leading to shock) appearing in a majority of patients with filovirus hemorrhagic fevers (e.g., Ebola and Marburg), CCHF, and the South American hemorrhagic fevers, but in a small minority of patients with dengue, RVF, and Lassa fever."
The Ebola outbreak currently affects Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. Ebola was first identified in 1976 and initially affected the Congo and Sudan. To make the diagnosis, malaria, cholera, typhoid fever, and other viral hemorrhagic disease must be excluded, The mortality rate of Ebola is from 50 to 90%. Recently the CDC reported that the incubation rate is from 8 to 21 days.
Published reports on symptoms of Ebola.
First symptoms (1, 2, 3) are -
1. fever, sore throat, muscle pains and headaches quickly followed by
2. nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, a red rash may cover part or all of the body, leading to
3. decreased functioning of the liver and kidneys and bleeding from multiple body parts.
4. advanced symptoms - tongue and mouth turn red, skin turns red, whites of eyes turn red, yellowing of the skin and red areas at the same time, bleeding from the eyes, nose, ears, mouth, rectum, vagina and penis. Where the virus was not treated, the skin turns black looking like severe burns.

How this Virus is spread
Direct contact with a patients bodily fluids. This not only includes touching a patient, but touching any clothes or objects they have touched or handled. Touching a door knob that an infected patient grasped could pass on the infection. Unlike HIV that requires body to body transfer of fluids, Ebola is spread easily. One person got Ebola by stealing and using a cell phone from a deceased victim. The cell phone had Ebola virions on it and passed it on to the user who then developed the disease. Thus, door knobs, water fountains, any public place could provide contact with a contaminated surface. How about a table and chairs? Public restrooms? Public swimming pools and recreation areas?
Airborne Transmission of the Ebola virus
While in the wild, there is no evidence of airborne transmission of Ebola. The news media continues to report that Ebola is not transmitted through the air. However, the media does this while offering no explanation why several doctors who are expertly trained not to pick up the Ebola or other infections are, in fact, coming down with the illness. The only obvious source of transmission was the air. Possibly, an Ebola patient could transmit the virus through the air just by talking. An unexpected cough or clearing of the throat could easily spill thousands of Ebola virions into the air. Don't believe CNN and other media outlets that continuously repeat the statement that Ebola is not airborne. One infected person on an international airplane could, by coughing and hacking, spread the Ebola virus to everyone else on the plane. No major city anywhere on this planet is even slightly prepared on how to handle an Ebola outbreak.
August 1, 2014, naturalnews.com reported the following:
In fact, a 2012 BBC article entitled "Growing concerns over 'in the air' transmission of Ebola" states: (3) Canadian scientists have shown that the deadliest form of the ebola virus could be transmitted by air between species. In experiments, they demonstrated that the virus was transmitted from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact between them. In their experiments, the pigs carrying the virus were housed in pens with the monkeys in close proximity but separated by a wire barrier. After eight days, some of the macaques were showing clinical signs typical of ebola and were euthanised. Read more here:

The 1880 Prophecy
The prophecy was received on August 5, 1880 by Marie-Julie Jahenny, a mystic and stigmatist from France (1850 - 1941). Here is part of one bibliographer (1) wrote about Marie-Julie Jahenny:
Marie-Julie Jahenny, the mystic and Stigmatist of La Fraudais and perhaps the greatest mystic in the history of the Church, was born on the 12th of February, 1850, in a little village in Brittany (in the West of France), called Blain. The eldest of five children, she was brought up by her simple, good parents in that lively faith for which Bretons are renowned.
Our Lord favored her with many graces from the time of her First Holy Communion, graces to which she corresponded with ever increasing devotion. She joined the Franciscan Third Order when in her early twenties, to help to sanctify herself in the world. In 1873, she received from Heaven that most remarkable mystic gift, the Stigmata. From the age of twenty-three until her death, some sixty years later, she bore in her body the Wounds of Our Lord to a more visible degree than had any other stigmatist in the Church's history.
In addition to the Five Wounds of the Sacred Hands, Feet and Side, Marie-Julie suffered the Wounds inflicted by the Crown of Thorns and the Cross on Our Lord's Sacred Head and Shoulder respectively, the Wounds of His Scourging, those caused by the ropes with which He was bound, as well as other Wounds of a more mystical nature. Henceforth, Marie-Julie lived her life of coredemptive suffering (as a victim soul) in a little cottage in the hamlet of La Fraudais, near Blain. She thus fulfilled Our Blessed Lord's desire for her to make reparation for the sins of France and the world. She was favored with frequent visions of Jesus and Mary, as well as many prophetic lights.

Ebola predicted as an end-time plague on Aug 5th, 1880
August 5, 1880 - the Virgin Mary to Marie-Julie Jahenny:
"There will be a grave illness which human science will not be able to alleviate. This illness will attack firstly the heart, then the spirit, and at the same time, the tongue. It will be horrible. The heat accompanying it will be a devouring fire insupportable and so intense that the members of the body affected will be red - an unendurable fiery red. At the end of seven days this disease, sown like a seed in the field, will spread everywhere and make great progress."
"This disease will produce a continuous vomiting and nausea. If the remedy is taken too late, the part of the body affected will become black, and in the black, there will be seen a sort of pale yellow streak."
Note: When you look at the pictures of Ebola victims and compare them to the words in this prophecy, they match almost exactly.
"My children, here is the only remedy which could save you. You are familiar with the hawthorn which grows practically in all hedges. The leaves of the hawthorn, not the wood, can arrest the progress of this disease."
Hawthorn leaf decoction - the remedy suggested by the Virgin Mary
"You will gather the leaves, not the wood. Even dry, they will keep their efficacy. You will put them into boiling water and leave them there for 14 minutes, covering the receptacle so that the steam remains therein. At the onset of this disease, one must use this remedy three times a day."
The History Of The Use Of Hawthorn Leaves, Flowers And Berries
Christians historians have claimed that the crown of thorns placed on the head of Christ on Good Friday was from Hawthorn branches. Hawthorn berries, leaves, and flowers have been used for their medicinal properties for many centuries.
The principal use of Hawthorn use has been to strengthen the heart. It has been used to prevent and treat congestive heart failure, normalize blood pressure, increase stamina and endurance, help with digestion and when taken before bedtime, helps alleviate insomnia and promotes deeper restful sleep. It helps dissolve belly fat and lower cholesterol. No adverse side effects have been reported anywhere. It can be used long term and more benefits are visible over time.
Updated instructions on making the Hawthorn leaf decoction for Ebola and other conditions (Oct 20, 2014)
These instruction are being updated because several variations of the original method of making the hawthorn extract have been tried and some improvements have been made in the past two months.
First you need to find a source of hawthorn leaves. I found a source of leaves and flowers at herbco.com 800-500-6148. One pound of a blend of leaves and flowers c/s (cut and sifted) was purchased for $9.00 plus shipping charges. Note: I noticed today they were sold out of the leaves and flowers. Try Google or any search engine for "hawthorn leaves" to locate other sources.
While the fruit is the most widely used part of the Hawthorn bush, I decided to use the leaves and flowers. After reading the instructions given to Marie Julie Jahenny by the Blessed Mother on Aug 5, 1880, on how to prepare the Hawthorn remedy, I am left with a few unanswered questions, they are -
1. What quantity of Hawthorn leaves should be added to what quantity of water? Should the leaves be whole or cut? Should it be a teaspoonful of leaves per cup of water or a tablespoon of leaves per cup or some other measurement?
2. After adding the Hawthorn leaves to the boiling water, should the mixture continue to A. be boiled for the next 14 minutes, B. be simmered for 14 minutes, or should the C. the heat be shut off while leaving the lid on for 14 minutes before straining and drinking the remedy?
3. Will the method vary depending on the heat source - gas stove, electrical or wood stove?
My first attempts at making the Hawthorn leaf decoction
Decoction: Decoctions are usually made by boiling a herb or food from 5 to 20 minutes. The temperature can reach 212 degrees fahrenheit equals 100 degrees Celsius. In my first attempt, I placed a full cup of water into a pan and brought it to a boil. Then I added one heaping tablespoon of the dried hawthorn leaves and flowers (c/s) into the boiling water. I stirred it and boiled it for one minute, then reduced the heat and placed a cover over the pot and simmered it for 14 minutes. I did not want to cook it on high heat for the 14 minutes as excess heat could reduce the medicinal value of some of the ingredients in the remedy. I removed the pot from the stove and left the cover on to cool it for about 10 minutes. I then strained the mixture to remove the cooked leaves and flowers. The color of the decoction was brown although partially cloudy with sediment from the cooked leaves. It was mild in flavor.
Infusion: The infusion method is usually used to make a tea. Infusion temperatures may start at the boiling temperature of water but quickly drop to below 160 degrees F and down further to 120 degrees F which is basically warm water. In another experiment I placed the hawthorn leaves in a cup of boiling water, turned off the heat, and let it alone for 10 or 15 minutes. I tried this and found that the resulting tea was lukewarm, light in color and had little flavor, indicating that much of the medicinal ingredients were still inside the leaves and flowers. I concluded that an infusion would not make a good remedy. After discussing both methods with a trained Herbalist, she stated that it would take a higher temperature of the leaves in the water to draw out the medicinal properties of the hawthorn leaf. She suggested combining the Decoction and Infusion methods.
My latest method of making a Hawthorn decoction doubles the herb and water used and simmers the mixture rather than boiling or steeping it
The Hawthorn extract I currently make is based on the following method: I use a 1.5 qt (1 and a half quart) stainless steel pot with a lid. I place two cups of water plus 1/4 cup of water into the pot and bring it to a rolling boil. I then add 2 heaping tablespoons of the cut hawthorn leaves and flowers to the boiling water and stir it while shutting off the heat for one minute. I then place the pot with the lid on the smallest burner on the stove with the lowest possible setting. I set the timer for 14 minutes. [You may add some Hawthorn berries to the mixture if you want, but this is not necessary.] At the 3 or 4 minute interval, I lift the lid to check on what it is doing. It should be simmering, not bubbling at a full boil.
By simmering, I mean there should be some churning motion to part (not all) of the hawthorn leaves and water in the pot. Most of the herb and water mixture should be motionless or just slightly moving. The temperature of the simmering mixture can be as low as 160 degrees F but less than the boiling temperature of the mixture. The ideal range is more than 160 degrees F but less than 190 degrees F. The resulting decoction I made was a deep golden brown color that looked like a clear maple syrup. The liquid also had a slight thickness (viscosity) and very smooth taste. Its physical effects are noticeable as a diuretic, and in promoting restful sleep. [Do not add any honey, sugar or other herbs to this remedy. Use it by itself.]
If you use an electric or wood stove, you will need to move or adjust the temperature to simmer (not boil) the mixture for the 14 minutes needed to make the remedy.
After 14 minutes the resulting decoction is strained and divided into two servings. If only one person is using the remedy, one cup is immediately consumed and the other is set aside or refrigerated for later use. In using the remedy for one Ebola patient, the entire day's remedy can be made at one time using 3 and 1/2 cups of water with 3 heaping tablespoons of the cut leaves and flowers. The resulting extract is divided into 3 portions that are taken about 5 hours apart. Note that this remedy must be taken early in the disease process or it may not work.
What about using Hawthorn extracts and capsules?
Why not take hawthorn berry capsules? The use of capsules is an experimental possibility and could be considered if the capsules primarily contain extracts of the leaves and flowers. However, not knowing the details of how the product is made leaves open questions about its efficacy. An experimental dose for an adult would be 3 capsules 3 times a day. Personally, I prefer making my own extract on the kitchen stove. At least you know what you got.
[I have found that one cup of this Hawthorn decoction taken before bedtime helps promote longer, deeper, and more restful sleep.]
I might add at this juncture that the use of the Hawthorn leaf decoction for treating Ebola is an act of faith as there is no scientific research (yet) that would support its use for treating Ebola. [My own theory is that the Hawthorn leaf decoction increases the availability of oxygen to the heart, and other body organs, and tissues.]
Drugs.com reports on the history of the use of the Hawthorn as follows:
"The use of hawthorn dates back to the Greek physician Dioscorides (40 to 90 AD). Hawthorn has been traditionally used as a diuretic for kidney and bladder disorders, to treat stomach ache, stimulate appetite, and improve circulation. Other traditional uses for hawthorn include treatment of stress, nervousness, and sleep disorders. Preparations containing hawthorn remain popular in Europe for the treatment of high or low blood pressure, tachycardia, or arrhythmias, with the revised Complete German Commission E Monographs approving the use of leaves and flowers for the treatment of long-term heart failure classes I and II (New York Heart Association [NYHA] classification). Some acceptance has also been gained in the United States, with clinical trials being conducted in cardiac failure."
Other experimental treatments for Ebola that may be considered
The patient should be lightly dressed because too much clothes adds to the misery of an over heated body. The hospital or treatment center should have an ozone machine and use ultraviolet light to disinfect air circulating in the room at all times. Air conditioning and lowering the temperature of the room will help.
1. Ozone (drink one glass of chilled ozonated water every 2 hours on an empty stomach. Drink 6 to 8 glasses a day. The ozone should be bubbled into the water for one minute prior to use.) A gallon of ozonated water can be stored in a refrigerator up to 24 hours and maintain its efficacy. To ozonate a gallon of water, bubble ozone through it for 8 minutes.
2. Hydrogen Peroxide in bath water - Add 12 pints of 3% H2O2 to a tub of room temperature water or even cooler water. Soak for 20 to 30 minutes once every other day. Rinse the mouth cavity with 3% H2O2 4 or 5 times a day.
3. Cold Showers or lowering the body temperature.
5. Supernatural help - fast on bread and water with prayer. Place a St Benedict medal on the patient and pray over them to end the plague. Bless them with water from San Damiano or Lourdes.
