Unknown Variant of Pneumonia

Up to today, there are more than 100 people affected by this strange variant of pneumonia (in Hong Kong), and the doctors said that there was no known medicine that was effective against this virus.

But in the Bible, LORD had repeatedly taught us cleanliness rules, and how to deal with "uncleanliness". "Scarlet stuff, hyssop, cedar wood" being the most prominent things in killing germs/virus, apart from spices.

Scarlet Stuff

Any vegetable or fruit that is red or orange in color.

For examples :

  1. Red apple,
  2. Red chilli,
  3. Orange,
  4. Tomato,
  5. Carrot (those orange in color),
  6. Red cherry,
  7. Red plum,
  8. Red currant,
  9. Strawberry,
  10. "Lee Chee" of China (a fruit with red skin, white fruit).
  11. ....


Hyssop is an evergreen perennial. Its leaves are aromatic and have a minty, bitter favour. I don't know if it is common in your country, but in Hong Kong, it is not on sale in the market. Therefore we can use something similar instead (aromatic, minty, or bitter),

Examples :

  1. Onions, shallot,
  2. Garlic,
  3. Celery,
  4. ....


Cedar is something like Christmas tree, and its wood is red in color and aromatic. Cedar wood is used in preparing "Water of Impurity" [Numbers 19] to be sprayed on persons who have touched dead body, grave, bones of the dead, ... But the message here is that vegetable or fruit which is red in color and aromatic, probably has disinfectant usage.

I am a Chinese living in Hong Kong. Chinese has different philosophy as to treating illnesses :

West : how to kill the germs, how to kill the invading bacteria. But in killing the bacteria, you kill many of your own cells, thus the kidney, liver, ... may all be affected. Side-effects are great.

East : How to boost our immune system so that it may be better equipped to fight the invading bacteria. . Therefore one medication consists of many types of herbs, (if you visit Hong Kong, you can find "Herbal tea with 24 herbs" on sale, less than US$1 per bowl, price in year 2003). The more material our body gets, the better is it capable of manufacturing its own weapons of defence to kill the invading germs. Side effect is minimal unless dosage is excessive.

But, alas, the "formulae/recipes" have rarely changed over the years ! What the herbal doctor used today is little different from what the herbal doctor used a thousand years ago ! Therefore some herbs which were common are not common today, making them very expensive.

Because the cost is high, I myself would not buy such. Instead I borrow the principle : "Boost our immune system by providing more material for it to build its own defence" -- I would choose only vegetable/fruit commonly available in the markets (hence the price must be low in comparison with the medicinal herbs), and that appeals to my appetite, then I put them into an electric blender (10 grams this vegetable, 15 grams that fruit, 10 grams .... all according to what my appetite craves; somewhat like the herbal doctor who weighs out the various herbs), and cook them with my own meal (rice or noodle).

For the last 17 years, I treat myself this way. Usually I recover after 1 week, (sometimes 2 weeks). I HAVE NEVER TAKEN ONE SINGLE PILL FOR THESE 17 YEARS.

Personally, I think the modern society is using too many chemicals -- the various sprays (hair spray, mosquito spray, sun spray, ...), the various cosmetic or body caring products, the various additives in prepared food, ... not to mention medicines coming out from research laboratories -- all these contain man-made chemicals. We must have absorbed and accumulated a lot of artificial chemicals in our body, and I don't think it is healthy.

I have written my own experience here, and I hope it would be useful to you. Lastly, I hope you would pay attention to LORD's words -- whether we are sick or not is not chance event, but whether we have broken LORD's laws/commandments/ordinances/statutes or not. There are numerous unseen angels out there so that LORD's words may be fulfilled,

LORD : If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give heed to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I put upon the Egyptians; for I am the LORD, your healer.
