Say No To Mosquitoes Tip #6: Useful at-Home Information

The City of Falls Church has posted a number of tips on how to avoid mosquitoes and West Nile Virus. I am discussing them in a six-part series.

The City of Falls Church is the bomb diggity when it comes to educating people about how to prevent West Nile Virus (WNV). Here are some handy documents they have on their site to help you get your ducks in a row:

WNV Checklist
Mosquito Tips During Home Construction
West Nile Virus Information for Kids

In addition, the site has a number of links for more information about the disease, both for education and prevention. Go check it out and have a fun, safe, mosquito-minimized summer!

    You fail to mention that a published treatment for West Nile virus encephalitis already exists. My company developed (and owns a patent pending) on the treatment, and has been using it in an ongoing free clinical trial for the past 5 years, since 2003.

    Our initial results on 8 patients seen in Sept, 2003 were published in a peer-reviewed medical journal in July, 2004 (1). Publication in a peer-reviewed medical journal is all that’s required for a treatment to officially exist, even if the public health authorities refuse to mention it.

    21 patients with WNV have responded so far, out of 25 (84%). We’ve also treated 4 horses (3 responded) and 12 birds (6 responded; birds present sicker than humans and horses). Our WNV trial is free from our end. The blood pressure meds we use are inexpensive (around $1/day) and are available by prescription from any drugstore in the country.

    Anybody who wants to download our trial documents can do so at any time of day or night from our homepage at

    It would be great if you could help publicize this treatment now, since beginning treatment early–within the first 48 hrs of encephalitis symptoms–seems to be the only way to avoid long-term sequelae such as paralysis, chronic fatigue, cognitive problems, etc. WNV is notorious for still affecting half of WNV victims 18 months later.

    If a family knows about our treatment ahead of time, they’ll be in a much better position to get it prescribed for their relative who comes down with the disease. Physicians haven’t heard about this treatment any more than patients have, thanks to the inexplicable silence of the public health authorities, from the CDC on down.
