Many viruses are self-limiting because the body eliminates the virus naturally. Chronic or lingering viruses, as we all know, either don't get better or keep reoccurring. Some can last a lifetime, causing the person to become progressively sicker, including Hepatitis B and C and HIV. Chronic fatigue syndrome has been linked to viruses, among other possible causes. Other lingering viruses resemble colds or the flu. In all cases, the immune system is the body's best way of eradicating a virus and preventing new infection.
Treatments of chronic or lingering viruses are aimed at strengthening the immune response and treating symptoms.

[YEA] 02/25/2008: Janice from Pensacola, FL, USA: "I discovered the wonders of ACV a few months ago. My husband caught a viral infection and was so sick he lost 2 days work, after two weeks he was still sick and I got a scratchy throat by the 3rd day I could barely talk or eat it hurt so bad. My Mom suggested I try ACV and honey mixed together and take 1 TBL 3 times a day. I was desperate so I tried it. 1 spoon in the morning and wow did it burn my throat I had to drink some water to stop the burn, I had 3 spoons of the ACV and honey mixture and that evening my sore throat was gone!!! My husband refused to try it and a few days later he called me from work and said he was going to the ER because he felt so sick. He was sent home with a prescription. I told him just try the ACV and honey, you have been sick all this time but I was sick only 3 days, just try it! He did and it worked, he never filled the prescription. I plan on buying some unprocessed ACV to treat other health problems I have. ACV is a wonder!"Replies
[YEA] 02/24/2012: Keith from Bardstown, Ky replies: "Got a scratchy throat about a week ago. Within three days started having yellow/brown congestion. Started Amoxicillin 500mg, Acetaminophen, expectorant /decongestant, and Antihistamine which helped some. After four days off work still did not work for sratchy throat, headache, congestion, coughing, and sneezing. On the fourth night swished and drunk 1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar 3 times before going to bed. Seem to work for scratchy throat and congestion. Got up this morning without congestion and most or not any scratchy throat. Going to keep using ACV 2 or 3 times a day until this is gone."
[YEA] 10/06/2007: Stella from Chelmsford, Essex, England UK: "I had explosive diarrhoea for a period of 4 weeks travelling in China from Beijing to Xian. No chemicals did anything but treat the symptoms. Upon returning home and taking an anti-biotic the diarrhoe went from explosive to less explosive. Test came back a "virus". I was getting really down by this and starting trawling th intenet. I came upon this site and through I'd try the cider vinegar - what did I have to lose. After my first dose I felt a difference right away. My stomach felt "different". I continued with the cider vinegar and 3 months later, I am completely cured. It didn't happen overnight for me as I had 4 weeks in China to recover from. But I am so grateful for finding this site. I'm also thankful for all the comments that persuaded me to give it a try. Thanks to all those who posted comments as you certainly gave me the confidence to give it a go - your comments cured me!"
[YEA] 11/10/2006: Kevin from Aveley Essex, England: "Wow, stumbled onto this website last night in desperation,I have felt sick every day for the last four months and have been bringing up acid, I have been taking omeprazole with limited effect, and I now realise I have been prescribed 100% the wrong treatment. Bought Apple cider vinegar tablets this morning and took two, within 15 minites the feeling of sickness went, and have gone all day feeling better than I have for months, this is not in my mind as I am not easily influenced or easily led, I really do feel better and cannot believe how you can get results so quickly, it really does seem that we all have a lot to learn from our past and maybe we should not dismiss new age hippies so quickly. Thanks to everyone on this site, I will promote this as much as I can."Replies
06/15/2012: Cherrytwo from Surrey, British Columbia, Canada replies: "Hi! Just found this website. I have had a sore throat that comes and goes - has gone on for a couple of months and my doctor can find no infection based on a throat swab. Do you have to take the ACV straight or can you mix it with water and drink it?
[YEA] 12/29/2006: Shalom from N Stonington, CT: "My family seems to always be sick. I found coconut flour and oil in March of this year and though we do still get sick it's not as often or for as long. and my Papillion LOVES it, especially for his itchy skin. Make sure it is vergin unrefined CO."
[YEA] 04/18/2006: Peter from NYC: "I've had a flu that lasted 3 months. I caught a terrible flu from my father, who had just come back from California. The flu would weaken, but never go away. It gave me terrible aches and pains, constant post nasal drip (but always with clear mucus, never green and infected), plugged ears, sinus aches, very low energy at times, sore throat, and very persistent. I found this site, and nearly made myself ill trying to take Apple Cider Vinegar (Heinz, without the so-called mother). But I kept taking it, and the flu still persisted. Also took lots of Vitamin C, and gargled with H. Peroxide and bubbled in ears, but still this thing wouldn't go away. Finally, I bought Coconut Oil from a local health food store, extra virgin, cold pressed, 24 hours later the flu is gone. I can hardly believe it. I guess Coconut oil is unique and resembles in some way mother's milk, which keeps nursing babies healthy. All I know is nothing else worked with this killer flu but Coconut oil, and I'm certain had I not taken it my sinuses and ears and aches would still be dragging me down."Replies
02/21/2009: John from Trumbull, CT replies: "How much coconut oil did you take? Please tell us the amount and how many times a day."
12/23/2009: Teapartytime from Austin, Tx replies: "lol for some reason i feel that this tells me "buying" cocout oil will help my virus go away like some lucky penny or something are there a little more detailed directions"
03/09/2013: Abk from Oakland, Ca replies: "I am replying to an old post from Peter in NYC, but just wanted to mention that if you are going to try ACV, you should definitely get the ACV with the 'mother'. It really is very different than the over-refined clear versions from Heinz. The 'mother' has additional nutrients that get removed in the clear versions."
[YEA] Mary from Nevada City: "I had been sick for a month and this was giving me very bad asthma. Advair did not control it. I needed albuterol several times a day. I woke up several times a night with attacks. The viral symptoms decreased very quickly once I started taking coconut oil 2-3 TABL a day. I was also taking Bee propolis which also helped with the viral load. One well cooked turnip, daily, has also helped keep my lungs loose enough to manage, and yes coffee helps when things are bad. Last but not least - I learned to breathe through my nose (unless sinues are blocked from a cold!) This really helps to calm an attack..."
[YEA] 10/01/2008: LeAnn from Murfreesboro, Tennessee: "Colloidal Silver for Stomach Virus: I agree that ingesting too much colloidal silver can be dangerous, but in small doses it is quite effective. I have used it topically to treat skin infections, ear infections, and conjunctivitis. But it is very effective at treating stomach viruses too. At the first sign of upset, I can drink about an ounce and be "cured." If I don't catch it early, I sometimes I will still feel ill 3 hours later and need to repeat the dose, but then all is better. :)"
Colloidal Silver, Supplements
12/09/2013: Mare from Clemmons, Nc: "Thank you so much for the recent newsletter and the testimonial by Dave Thomas. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It's strange that you sent it to me when you did because I've been at my wits end lately, fighting what I perceived to be a virus. Actually, my husband passed it along to me when he came down with it a few days after Halloween. It started with a nasty head cold with lots of congestion and I was shocked when I came down with it too because I haven't had a head cold in years, but I suppose being at such close quarters with hubby, it was logical that I'd get it as well. Anyway, no sooner was my husband's cold in full swing, I too found my sinuses congested to the max, and about the same time, we both developed a hacking cough which also involved a lot of congestion. This bothered me because I have NEVER been without CS in the house since I take it for practically everything, but for some strange reason, it didn't seem to be working very well this time. I had us both on a two tablespoon dose three times a day along with some herbal cough syrup and then added some extra vitamin C, D3, etc. along with Cayenne pepper capsules and Oil of Oregano capsules. I figured bringing out the big guns would surely knock out whatever was attacking us.
We had to stay home from work a day here and there since we had intermittent fever, though certainly nothing really high, and after a day or two, we'd feel a bit better and go back to work only to find that we were relapsing into the same state of being sick and feeling completely devoid of energy. Nevertheless, I kept us on the remedies and finally a few days before Thanksgiving, we were what you might consider, well enough to celebrate with the family, though not bouncing with energy by any means. Still, since we weren't feverish, had no head congestion, and only an annoying intermittent ticklish cough, we didn't feel that we'd contaminate anyone. So far we're still feeling almost back to normal, though here it is beginning of December and the effects of the virus....whatever it was... is just now fading away.
I have no idea what kind of viral infection we've had but needless to say that I was amazed that the CS didn't knock it out right away since we've relied on it so much over the past several years. It's been quite a learning experience and I don't know what if anything we should have done differently?
Any suggestions would be appreciated, though I know you can only relate personal experiences.
Once again, thanks for the timely newsletter and I look forward to the next one with anticipation. Best regards, Mare"Replies
12/09/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn replies: "Hello Mare,
From your description you are orally ingesting the Colloidal Silver. And that's fine for as a general anti viral. But if I get a bad sinus infection (head cold as you describe) then much, much more effective is the direct application into the sinus cavity via simply sniffing a teaspoon quantity from palm of hand straight into the sinus on both sides. Also consider ear syringe for ears. The infection might be in the ear canals and the Eustachian tubes could be infected (a typical source of secondary infections; even when one is on antibiotics, it is well known that bacteria can survive in the Eustachian tubes and cause secondary infections)."
12/10/2013: Mare from Clemmons, Nc replies: "Thanks for the reply Dave. I wasn't aware that drops of the CS could be used in the ear canal, or the sinuses, however I'll try that next time. I knew about using Hydrogen Peroxide in the ears, but since we were taking so many remedies, I didn't think to try that this time. And while I'm on about the ear canal....how often should the CS be applied?
Thank goodness we're all better now after relentlessly keeping on with the home remedies and hope it's the last we'll see of any more viral infections at our house. Stay well everybody. Mare"
12/10/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "Hello again Mare,
I've found an inner ear infection can be knocked out with only a few applications. Once a trip to the ocean produced an ear infection; hearing in both ears almost completely closed off. I though perhaps water had gotten caught inside the "labyrinth" but the MD after examining said that both ears were inflamed and infected and gave me a prescription for antibiotics.
Well, I thanked him and promptly went home and using an ear syringe applied Colloidal Silver in both ears....instant relief...I could hear perfectly again. Just to make sure, reapplied later that night. Problem solved."
02/09/2012: Redclary from Okc, Ok: "With this new virus that is going around, my husband and I have tried many new ways for relief. We got a small humidifier and use a few drops of eucalyptus oil in it. It works wonderfully. The best sleep we have gotten and the house smells so fresh. It keeps the humidifier clean also."
Human T-Lymphotropic Virus (Htlv) Remedies
10/24/2013: Ron from London,ontario,canada: "I am seeking some information on treatments on HTLV 1.
Can you make any suggestions or recommendations on any I can live longer? I have been testing positive for HTLV 1 for 8 years now and I think I am starting to show symptoms."Replies
10/24/2013: Nanowriter from Hotspot, Texas replies: "You may want to try liposomal vit c at high dosages. vit C is a powerful antiviral. There was an Australian man who had his hairy cell leukemia resolve using liposomal Vit C (some sort of 60 Minutes type program featured him and his family's struggle with the medical establishment). HCL is associated with HTLV-2--The same family as HTLV-1, I would think, so it would seem very likely it would respond to vit C."
10/24/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "Hello Ron from Canada,
In re Htlv;
A good article on Htlv... a retro virus... on Wikipedia and for those interested in retro viruses also a mind numbing article on the method of host cell invasion by this particular envelope virus.
It is hard to kill an envelope virus. The envelope is a protection surrounding the virus.
So the attack on such a virus requires tenacity over time. There are lots of anit virals which are "natural."
At the top of my list is colloidal silver, my standby for twenty years. If this were me, I'd take three tablespoons daily on empty stomach. Self monitoring is crucial. I'd expect to see improvement within a month. For instance, if I manifested with a gait problem, then in a month I'd expect to see my walking improve by maybe 10 percent. So that would encourage me to continue.
To kill an envelope virus that has infested body wide I would be taking orally 3 tablespoons for two to three years. YEARS. I'd not want to over consume the CS. Too great a kill off could be harmful; it's slow and easy. (To test your CS to make sure it is effective, if you get a sinus infection or sore throat, then irrigate the sinus for the former and gargle for the later and you SHOULD see immediate relief if your CS is effective. That's the test...does it work?! ?
There are other viral killers; echinacia, Lysine, lomatium, N Acetyl Cystine, germanium 132, lauric acid, sodium lauryl sulfate, zinc, lavander oil, tea tree oil, magnesium chloride, squalamine, Calcium AEP and DMSO. BHT seems to work on Hep B and C, that might also be considered.
So I might be eclectic but I'd consider the basic to be Colloidal Silver. And I'd also give myself a weekly sinus/ear irrigation of the silver. If I feel the infection in the lungs, I'd get an inhaler and breathe deeply the CS as a steam...for three or four minutes a few times weekly."
10/25/2013: Timh from Ky, Usa replies: "@Dave: Would you also recommend the Beck Protocol of C.S. alternated w/ Zapping? This method may be more powerful than either alone."
10/25/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "Hello Tim,
Thank you for your great question: I'm all for trying out different things...the eclectic idea. If you want to alternate, that's fine but I'd alternate after a full three weeks on one and then the Beck's and then the Zapping. Not all mixed. After all, if one works, you'd want to know that it was a specific one that helped. Then you go to another protocol with a different one, and that one maybe didn't help, so you know to eliminate the second...etc.
What do you think?"
10/26/2013: Timh from Ky, Usa replies: "Looks like it depends on the severity of the case. For many folks, disease is usually well advanced before it becomes an obvious issue. So yes, try one substance for a few weeks and measure results, and if no results add another. Also, cleaning up the external & internal environment may be essential for rebuilding the immune system."
10/26/2013: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "Dave, the way you describe is the rational way to do things. But people are anxious for a quicker cure, so we try many things together or in quick succession!"
10/27/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "To Mmsg...somewhere in Europe:
Re your post on the "rational way to do things" ... you are so right. And it costs us in the long run, to be impatient I mean. The methodical process of elimination would tell you which method is working.
Best to you."
03/07/2013: Tiredofvirusuk from London, Uk: "Hi all, I hope someone out there can help. I have been diagnosed with being infected with the Human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV). It is a particularly nasty and debilitating virus, symptoms of which cause arthritis and various pains, rashes on the body and sores/blisters in the mouth and gums.
I only recently found out I have this virus and believe I may have been infected more then 3 yrs ago, as it was then that I experienced all these aches and pains that the doctors diagnosed as arthritis. Anyway I have been reading various remedies on EarthClinic with great interest. In particular interested in using BHT to treat it seeing as Oscar and many others have used it to successfully treat their Hepatitis. Do you think BHT will work with the HTLV Virus ?
Look forward to your response thanks."Replies
03/08/2013: Oscar from Syracuse, New York replies: "I tried for over an hour to find out if this virus is lipid coated or not. It is a virus that is coated [ not all viruses are coated ]. It is NOT clear to me whether or not it is a lipid coated virus. It is related in some ways to the HIV virus that IS a lipid coated virus. The BHT works best against viruses that are to some degree lipid coated. That is as much as I could find out. So MAYBE the BHT will help. The BHT surely does not cost much. It seems worth a try. If you choose to give BHT a try start with small amounts and work up to NO more than 350mg of BHT twice a day=700mg of BHT....Oscar"
03/09/2013: Bill from San Fernando, La Union, Philippines replies: "Hi Tiredofvirusuk... I believe that the human T-Lymphotropic Virus is indeed an enveloped virus and so taking remedies like BHT, coconut oil, chanca piedra (as advertized on this site against enveloped viruses) etc may well help your problem:
"HTLV-1 is an enveloped virus that contains two identical copies of a plus single-stranded RNA genome and an outer envelope containing protruding viral glycoproteins. This virus is known as a retrovirus because the RNA genome directs the formation of a DNA molecule, which ultimately acts as the template for synthesis of viral mRNA. Because most retroviruses do not kill their host cells, infected cells can replicate, producing daughter cells with integrated proviral DNA. These daughter cells continue to transcribe the proviral DNA and bud progeny virions."

03/11/2013: Tiredofvirusuk from London, Uk replies: "Hi Oscar and Bill,
Thanks very much for your replies. Yes I wasn't sure if it was an enveloped virus either but according to what Bill has mentioned it is, so I will give the BHT a try aswell as the other items mentioned by Bill. Thanks so much, I will take these items and give an update periodically on any results good or bad experienced.
Oscar, just thought I'd let you know, I started on the BHT last Monday 4th March 2013. I took one capsule of 350mg (its the Vitamin Research Products) brand and I know from reading all your posts this is the brand you have been using to achieve your truly remarkable results of eliminating the Hep C and B virus for good. So as per your advice I took one capsule on Monday, but had no side effects etc, so on Tues I took one 350mg in the morning and one late afternoon, both on an empty stomach again no effects experienced good or bad. Then on Weds I ramped it up to 2 x 350mg caps in the morning and 2 x 350mg caps in the late afternoon again on empty stomach. On Thursday I did the same so that was 1400mg a day. On the Friday, Sat and Sun I am back to 2 capsules a day as I noticed in your posts you don't recommend more than 700mg a day which is what I'm currently on.
I haven't had any effects as of yet good or bad. I was wondering how long would it take before I have any indication as to whether it is working or not.
As a side point prior to taking the BHT, I was taking ACV a dash in a cup of water with a teaspoon of Manuka honey twice a day - this greatly reduced a chronic pain in the right side of my stomach, I was also taking Black Seed Oil two teaspoons a day and Olive Leaf Extract capsules - around 8 a day.
Although this mix seemed to reduce most of the arthritic pain in my joints it never removed it completely.
However now I am taking the BHT, I have put everything on hold with the exception of the ACV that I am now taking in the evenings only. Do I have to take the BHT on its own or is it okay to take other things during the day - not at the same time as taking the BHT but say an hour or two after, or would you just take the BHT with nothing else ?
I also read the e-book link you posted in one of your posts and that was a very interesting read, so I have high hoped of this BHT in helping me combat this virus I have. How long did it take you before you realised the BHT was working ? Do you think a week is to short to assess whether it is working or not, as at the moment I haven't experienced anything that would indicate to me that it is working or not.
Kindest of regards...."
08/13/2013: Pete from Los Angeles replies: "Hello Oscar & Bill from Philippines. I have had a problem with a pain in my chest that would radiate up into my jaw and ear on the right side and give me a panic attack. I had found that it was not a heart attack. I would feel spaced out when this happens. Would you have any idea what is causing this? I cannot drink a beer or enjoy it. I always have a taste in my mouth. If you have any idea on how to treat this or have a name for it, it would be appreciated. Thank you

Hydrogen Peroxide Cure for a Virus
Folk Remedy Ingredients:
- Hydrogen Peroxide - 3%
At the first sign of the flu or other viral infection, lie down on your side and put a few drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide in your ear, and then let it sit for several minutes. Then empty out that ear and repeat on the other side. Hydrogen peroxide's antiviral properties seem to cut the flu virus down before it can take hold.
[YEA] 04/10/2013: Roy from Brampton, Canada: "For all you folks with the flu as well as families with babies, a good idea is to get hold of a vaporizer and fill it with distilled water. Add hydrogen peroxide to it and let all who sleep with this device in thier rooms benifit. People with Asthma, sarcoidosis, emphysema, Lung cancer, and any other disease that affects you, can benifit from this therapy."
05/14/2009: Cristine from Cape Town, South Africa: "Liquid HP for babies?
Im desperate! My baby and my entire family have what we assume is RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) a virus that appears as a cold with like symptoms but sometimes presents itself as a runny tummy. So the symptoms are very varied and no-one can tell unless you go for tests, which I dont really have th money for. The other thing is that you get infected and re-infected over and over. On doing some research they say that the only treatment, since nothing works not even antibiotics, which my baby has been on for about 2 months with breaks in between. Anyway the research says that the only possible solution is oxygen... so I thought maybe a few drops of HP?? Please tell me this will work, I've having sleepless nights for the last 2 months and its really getting us all down and more unhealthy. PLEASE HELP ME! If you have any info or guidelines as to how much HP I can administer to a baby and the safety of it used in babies, please let me know. It scares me to administer it to her - she's 9 months old by the way."
[YEA] 09/26/2006: John from Boston, MA: "I had developed some kind of nasty flu-like condition while in school. I don't normally get sick alot, and when I do it's not really all that bad, but this was really bad and was lingering around for weeks. I was really puzzled, but also quite miserable, and I don't trust doctors and I don't have a lot of money anyway. So one day I was looking for something on the web and stumbled across the hydrogen proxide cures of Bill Munroe and was at once intrigued, but dubious. After all, I was told by my Dad once when I was really young that hydrogen peroxide is "poisonous" which I took to mean "lethal on contact" or something since I must have been like 2 or 3 at the time. Anyway, I felt so bad from this flu thing that I decided what the heck, I'll put it in my ears. I knew that there might be some bubbling, but when I put it in my left ear, WOW, like it exploded *foosh* and scared the bejesus out of me at first, but it didn't hurt it just took me by surprise. The other ear bubbled far more mildly. Anyway, couldn't tell f it was working right then, but the next morning I KNEW I felt better. My muscled didn't hurt as much, my head felt much clearer, and I was able to cough out gobs of phlem that had been just stuck there for weeks, making my thoat raw with coughing. I inhaled it some too the next day by putting it in a plant sprayer and spraying it at a fan I was standing in front of, occasionally taking deep breaths of the fan-air. This made me feel strangingly happy and energetic, and also mildly light-headed. It was not a good idea to use the fan this way, however, because a little drop of H2O2 got in my eye once and that wasn't fun! Stings pretty bad far a few seconds. The big companies will never cop to the benefits of a substance that cannot be patented."
Hydrogen Peroxide Foot Baths
[YEA] 01/04/2008: FranSix from Toronto, Canada: "I had been attempting to see a specialist who treats patients with blood chelation therapy and hydrogen peroxide injection. In the meantime, I engaged in some of the therapies written about here. I will eventually obtain peroxide treatments with the specialist here to follow up.
I chose footbaths, since I have no tub in my apartment. I really took to the footbaths and do it now as a matter of course. I also tried inhaling when I came down with the flu, a hazard at my workplace. The inhaling method I found to be very harsh, so I limited it to only enough to get over having the flu, which was in a matter of 48-60 hours. I do keep a nasal spray bottle on hand in case there is no other source available and inhale just prior to taking a shower.
This was the most challenging virus I had picked up in a long time. I was aiming overall at defeating post viral fatigue syndrome and the effects of periodontal work.
The fatigue didn't come back as strongly, so I believe the effect of the footbaths is according to remedy. The night sweats that accompany chronic fatigue are not as prominent. I have enough energy now to take care of basic chores without putting them off. I also attempted to drink some tea with peroxide according to recommendation, but will not repeat that, since I found it harsh.
Needless to say taking baths and footbaths and occasional baths on the road with 3% peroxide produced a lot of phlegm initially, and one day black phlegm came out. Footbaths I started out with 500ml and now use 1l. in hot water with epsom salts and tea tree oil. Its a pleasant way to start the day prior to taking a shower. In a bath when on the road I usually buy 6 bottles of 500ml. in a nearby pharmacy and use it as part of the routine.
Other improvements are better complexion and improved varicose veins in my feet. I also have some improvement in cardiovascular function and seem to breathe easier.
I am very concerned that the medical profession has no clue about peroxide and its possible use in properly treating fatigue syndrome, since the alternative is to have you assessed incorrectly as depressed or subjected to treatments which have no effect.
I am hoping that peroxide therapy will help me return to working out and enjoying life a little more.
Here is a story recently recounted in the NY Times. I am certain that peroxide therapy will help this condition:
