I saw all hospitals in Trang building hundreds of extra rooms in 4 story complexes two years BEFORE any virus and I asked myself what for, is it forward planning? Billions of Baht spent in anticipation of business? How did the Thais know? Did the same building happen in other countries before the virus? Thailand has a couple of popular songs about the virus – it plays every day at the exercise park. Lets have a few more about autism and cancer and we can sing as we die. On the positive side, BHT stops the Govid 19 virus, that's Butylated Hydroxy Toluene, which one can't find anywhere here. Makes sense?

I've been having lingering sinusitis and eustachian tube blockage from covid going on 12 weeks now. I've done many conventional and alternative therapies.

I've been taking bht in varying doses starting with the pinch for 9 days, up to 900 mg some days, 600 yesterday. Generally my eustachian tube pressure is down 90 percent and my sinuses have cleared a lot. It seems to be working as a decongestant in a way. I still have loss of smell and taste and I've been having severe sleep disfunction for weeks. Not sure where I go from here.

Loss of smell and taste is a symptom of low zinc.

Taking a food based zinc at 250 mg a day for a few days will probably get it back for you. Garden of Life and New Chapter both have food based zincs. Once you get your senses back, take only 50mg a day.

Good luck. Let us know how long it takes to work.

This use of BHT to treat and prevent covid 19 is too important not to make more noise about it. If the powers that be about all this need something that sounds more scientific, here is my take on it: Butylated Phenols are oxidized at the tert-butyl groups during digestion, and these metabolites are still very lipophilic but do have some added O-H groups that cause these molecules to move about rapidly once embedded in the lipid envelopes of the different viruses including covid 19. Each O-H or hydroxy group is in effect a dipolar spot on the larger molecule. This rapid movement helps destroy the lipid coatings decloaking the viruses and marking them for destruction by the bodies' defense mechanisms. Also, there are three tert-butylated phenols. You have a phenol ring with one, two, or three tert-butyl groups. These are called BHA, butylated hydroxyanisole with one tert-butyl group. Then BHT, butylated hydroxytoluene with two tert-butyl groups. And TBP, tri 2,4,6 tert-butyl phenol with three tert-butyl groups. The different sizes may be very important in creating the best treatments. It does seem likely that BHA with only one tert-butyl group would penetrate the viral envelopes more readily, for example. There have been animal studies using BHT and BHA together more effectively than either one used alone. I have not heard of anything more promising.

Thank you very much for sharing this. Can you please elaborate on BHA dosage? Should we also take a pinch of it as BHT shown in this video?

Concerning using BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene) against COVID-19 infections, here is a short, free explanatory ebook (PDF) by Steve Fowkes on how to use BHT as an anti-oxidant for general for health, anti-aging and against lipid-coated viruses.

Steve Fowkes is one of the few researchers (along with other researchers like GM Williams) who, through his own well-known and extensive research, strongly supports using BHT against viruses like COVID-19. This downloadable ebook contains all you need to know about BHT and I thought this book would perhaps be particularly useful to help allay any fears that people might have about using BHT.

One of the best kept secrets around is BHT, short for butylated hydroxy toluene.

It has been around for the better part of thirty years, has been approved as a food additive by the FDA as safe for human consumption in small quantities and using common sense. Without going into all the details which would fill many pages, some of the benefits are difficult to ignore. Even so, pharmaceutical as well as the medical profession does their best to do so.

Some of the reasons are that that there is no money to be made by pharmaceutical companies as patents related to BHT ran out long time ago and in order to have it approved for medical application it would require an immeasurable amounts of human tests with expenditures in the millions of Dollars which most likely will never be recovered.

On the other hand, many doctors may know about BHT but will refrain from suggesting it as recommending anything which is not approved by the FDA would leave them wide open to lawsuits, as it is pretty well known that one of the American dreams is, to fall on your neighbors property and then sue them for what ever they can get.

Over the years enough information about BHT has surfaced that if used in small quantities to achieve a particular result, such as from 100 mg to about 1g (one gram or 1000mg) and in most cases 250mg to 450mg may do a nice job for some of the things suggested, it may be less harmful than an equivalent amount of Aspirin. Again, do your own research and use common sense which appears to be in short supply these days.

Even so, if you still apprehensive or hesitant use BHT only when one of those nasty viruses appears on the scene and use it as a prophylactic in a small quantity perhaps 200 mg and once the danger subside stop taking it.

The catch is that in order to do its job, BHT works better before you get sick, as BHT will NOT REPAIR ANY DAMAGE which may already have been done by an infectious disease such as the coronavirus.

Even so if taken afterwards BHT will still continue to disable lipid covered viruses, but to repair any damage already caused may require different medications.

So why to take BHT on the first place? It has been long known that BHT will remove the lipid layer or cover from LIPID COVERED viruses and the coronavirus happens to be just such a virus and by doing so will prevent such a virus from attaching itself and do its dirty work.

The Principal Benefits of BHT

In order of importance, supplementing with BHT can help with:

Reduce and prevent viral infections such as herpes, thus terminating their outbreaks. Also BHT is effective against many different human and animal viruses including CMV (cytomegalovirus),9 pseudorabies,10 genital herpes, 11 HIV, 12 and some strains of influenza. 13 A few of the viruses that have a lipid envelope and may be treated by BHT include herpes simplex I, herpes simplex II, herpes zoster, CMV, West Nile virus, HIV virus, influenza virus, hepatitis B and C viruses, avian flu influenza virus and the SARS virus. However, BHT has not been clinically tested to treat these infections.

The CORONAVIRUS is also a lipid covered virus and BHT affects the lipid covering and in turn prevents the virus from attaching itself and do its damage. Now keep in mind that very few things in life are perfect and this holds true for vaccines as well. So when everything comes down to being cut and dried, do you prefer risking being infected with a nasty virus with all kinds of unpredictable side effects or take a chance with some substance which overall has a very good safety record.

Couldn't agree more, Josef! I purchased BHT about a month ago (lots of it, so that I can share it with others). If taken in small amounts, it certainly can't hurt anyone. It was used for decades in cereals, etc. And if those small amounts even just 'might' protect us from COVID, then I am all IN! Stay safe, everyone! (And please listen to information from Dr. Fauci and other equally experienced and qualified immunologists/virologist--*not* to the politicians, who are putting their party/agenda, before the lives of their fellow Americans.)

Hi everyone, For those interested in taking BHT for viruses, here's a video we just published a quick video YouTube.

I would wholly agree with both Lee and Tyler Vincent's view of BHT. I bought 500 gms of BHT powder (USP grade) direct from an online chemical supplier and it only cost me $8.50.

For the last 3 or 4 weeks, I've been taking BHT at between 250 mgs to 500 mgs every day dissolved in coconut oil (which also kills the COVID-19 virus) as a preventative and for protection against the virus. I have also calculated, at that daily dose, that my BHT powder should last me between 3 and 4 years of constant daily supplementation if required.

I love it when you can find such a cheap remedy like BHT for use against a nasty virus like COVID-19 because that also means that BHT is accessible and easily affordable to everyone who needs it.

I have consumed BHT many times over the years for its antiviral and antiaging. Never regularly. Most recently, when coming down with a sore throat and fatigue twice over the past 60 days, I took just one 350 mg capsule of BHT on an empty stomach with a small glass of warm water. My symptoms disappeared within the hour. Now I'm not sure if this was the beginning stage of coronavirus or just a cold, but it worked.

After more than two weeks of no symptoms of covid19, after nebulizing MCT oil, my lungs and kidneys began swelling up in pain again on day 40. I took 900 milligrams of BHT, and after 15 minutes, the pain in my kidneys faded away, as well as in the lung; It's been 5 hours now and I feel great, but BHT hurts my liver. I had also took 1/3'rd of an Aleve. Aleve seemed to help before with immune over reaction but, importantly, BHT is well known to kill basically all viruses, with far fewer side effects compared to big pharmas line up. Thank you to earthclinic for making this public, it is the best kept anti-viral secret and most widely used preservative on the planet. Seems to be helping me in a huge way, very rapidly. I'll have to do more testing. See earth clinics video on it:

Eating ginger helps reduce liver pain and also topical castor oil packs with heat reduced liver pain for me. My liver got healed so I don't have to use them for that now. Coconut oil works mouth to rectum and everything in between.

I will probably down an entire bottle of milk thistle to fix my liver up one of these days, I already stagger the dosage (milk thistle in the morning, BHT at night); Milk thistle is utilized rapidly by the liver. BHT is definitely a no brainer if you have covid19. It works and I say that from experience. So spread the word and get it out to every last man woman and child on planet earth.

What do you mean it hurt your liver? How do you know it wasn't the Alleve.

I am using BHT to treat Covid19. 900 MG of BHT knocked out covid19 related kidney and lung pains after only 15 minutes, hours later, effect is down to almost nothing at all, though it was really really hard on my liver. The liver was already troubled thanks to Covid19. Probably going to down an entire bottle of milk thistle to fix that up one of these days, I already stagger the dosage (milk thistle in the morning, BHT at night); Milk thistle is used rapidly by the liver. Definitely a no brainer if you are worried about Covid19, or especially if you have it. It works and I say that from experience.

Hi Tyler, I read all your postings. WOW, what a success story. I have no problem believing that the BHT worked as well as you said it does. I had the same amazing results using BHT to cure my hepatitis C infection. In one of your posts you mentioned BHT is found in some fungi that grows on olives. BHT is also found in 4 different phytoplankton, some lichen, a certain fruit, and others. So this BHT is every bit as natural as any herb. Keep posting everywhere. People need to hear from you.

When I say the "effect is down to almost nothing at all," I mean BHT knocks the viral load down to nothing, and very very fast. I can tell this stuff is incredible, it is a life saver.

For all those looking for hope from the KUNG FLU. Things you should have at your house just in case. 190 proof Everclear alcohol - first sign of a sore throat, slowly sip a cap full and let it run down your throat. Repeat if your sore throat comes back. Lysine- 1500 mg every 1 hour for 24 hrs, then 1500 mg every 4 hours for 3 to 5 days BHT - 1500 mg once a day for 5 days. Vitamin D3 with K2 - 80,000 iu taken once a day for 5 days. Hydrogen Peroxide 3% - in hail threw a neutralizer or spray bottle or a humidifier, 3 inhales every 2 to 3 hours for 5 days. Vitamin C - take 10,000 mg over the course of a day for 5 days. These steps should be started as soon as a sore throat or fever is noticed.
