Some more useful information that I've found from a Chinese website. This website names six effective TCM herbal remedies that will help to defeat the COVID-19 virus. These remedies are just a round-up of the top TCM remedies that are being used so successfully in all Chinese hospitals right now. See link below:

I much prefer using natural methods to treat health problems, but the TCM remedies are compounds of various herbs. I have not been able to find what herbs are in these compounds, which is concerning. It is possible for people to have reactions to an herb and not being able to determine if it is in the compound first is like playing Russian Roulette.


BILL,,,,,,,,,,,, just read a French article that the says smokers are less likely to get C 19 and are now using nicotine patches for medical workers. Of course , we know this is only Ancedotal, and should be ignored .......while they take 10 years to address the problem with double blind studies. Cancer procedures have never has a double blind test nor have the vaccines. It all depends on whose Ox is being gored. ====ORH====

The information on what therapeutics China has been using against the COVID-19 virus is now being broadcast in the foreign press(but not in the Western media). This is further confirmation that TCM herbal therapeutics are a major component of China's successful medical strategy against the COVID-19 virus.

See this link:

The bad news is that, according to the Chinese scientists, it appears that the COVID-19 virus is mutating at a fast rate. This therefore means that any vaccines for COVID-19 may not be effective against the virus because if there are already a large number of unknown strains of COVID-19 out there then it would be all but impossible to accurately create a workable or useful vaccine against that virus.

I've already mentioned that both Traditional Chinese Medicine herbals (TCM) and Interferon Alpha 2b (a Cuban drug) are already being successfully used in China and are now part of their successful standard treatment for COVID-19 patients. I've already described the effectiveness of TCM on this page and just thought it might be helpful to describe what the Cuban interferon drug is all about.

In several newspapers that I have read, I've also noted that China, Spain, Mexico, Italy, Venezuela and Jamaica (and other Caribbean countries) have all been helped by special medical teams from Cuba who have used Cuba's Interferon drug. China, Spain, Italy and Mexico have all publicly thanked Cuba for saving the lives of their people using their interferon drug. In one Mexican newspaper I've read, the Mexican govt even went so far as to say that Cuba's Interferon drug helped to save the lives of 1,500 Mexican patients with serious pneumonia complications. This news has never been reported in the western media.

Interestingly, in a Fox News report no less, it was reported that China has deliberately dropped the Remdesivir drug from it's research. The reason that the Chinese doctor gave was that they had already found a fast and effective therapeutic treatment -- and a much cheaper treatment -- for the COVID-19 virus using Cuba's Interferon drug. Here is the Fox News report:

Also, I hope that you noticed in that Fox News report that the reporter or journalist deliberately avoided reporting exactly what drugs or protocols China was actually using so successfully. Any honest reporter would have reported that important news. That's why I doubt that the US Govt. would ever consider using Cuba's interferon formula which would probably help to to save the lives of many Americans. Out of interest, I also tasked myself with trying to find out the constituents of Interferon Alpha 2b.

I found an Indian website that was selling the drug. This form is called Viferon. They sell the topical gel ointment form and the suppository form. You can check out the detailed Viferon fact sheet on this Indian website for yourself here:

From this website, it accurately describes all excipients used in the Viferon ointment formula which, from the webpage, includes the following all-natural substances: "excipients: alpha-tocopherol acetate[Vitamin E] solution 5% alcoholic solution of methionine[a vitamin] with 2% of benzoic acid solution[anti-microbial, anti-carcogenic] of 0.4% citric acid solution — 10% sodium tetraborate solution[anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-mycobacterium] with 3% sodium chloride solution — 10% human serum albumin solution 10% glycerine distilled sodium carboxymethylcellulose purified water "

As far as I can see, the above formula isn't just anti-viral, but it is also anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic as well. The formula also seems to be safe -- because it contains no poisons or patented medicines. Also please note that if you buy the Cuba's interferon drug from any American or Western website, then it will probably cost you between $200 and $300 per pack. But on the above Indian website the gel ointment will cost you $8 to $12 per pack and the suppository form will cost you between $8 and $36 per pack depending on your choice. Interferon Alpha 2b has also won two top research design awards -- Interferon won the 2012 National Technology Innovation Award and the 2013 National Health Award. It is currently the most requested drug to limit the Covid-19 effects.​​​​​​​

Cuba's interferon drug is a great example of how to make a safe drug using natural excipients without using patented medicines and without using dangerous or poisonous adjuvants in the mix.

Bill... Can u get this/alternative info to Gov Cuomo? He's looking for solutions...might go for it. I'm just worried about the drug co's & other "players" that would get involved in smearing & price gouging. Can't let the drug co's know first. Thank you, Jan


Hi Bill, Shaklee also has an interferon product called Nutriferon.... ... thought you might like to know of that one, too. :)

Just to also mention that, from the research, if you alkalize everyday(3 times a day) just using Ted from Bangkok's sodium bicarbonate + water alkalizing remedy, this will also act to alkalize the blood to help prevent the COVID-19 virus(or any virus)) from attaching to human cells for viral replication.

Here is an in depth article from Dr Sircus on the beneficial effects of alkalizing with sodium bicarbonate:

Hi Bill, And thanks for all your suggestions! We've also developed a nebulizing protocol to cover just about any viral/bacterial infection in the lungs, with excellent results even on COPS patients (we already have a fully recovered case, where the person is no longer using Albuterol, Spiriva or Singulair, after 40+ years of smoking!) The protocol is as follows: In 4 ml. (4 cc.) of standard isotonic saline solution, you put: 1 single drop of 2% Lugol's iodine. 1 single drop of Pure Gum Spirits of Turpentine. 12 drops of 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Mix it all up, and crank up the nebulizer! The results are like magic!, in pneumonia cases, asthma and other serious lung conditions. Nebulize for a minimum of 10 minutes, and up to 3 times a day. This was posted on our Facebook group (which is in Spanish) on March 19 of this year: Cheers to all!

Here's what I'm using now to boost my immune system every day. This drink is based on Ted from Bangkok's famous drink containing lugols iodine + sodium ascorbate.

I've modified this drink to contain: glass of water 1 gm(1/4 tspn) sodium ascorbate powder(you can easily make sodium ascorbate by adding 1/4 tspn ascorbic acid + 1/4 tspn sodium bicarbonate(until the fizzing stops) + water. 1/4 tspn tripotassium citrate -

I make this in a glass of water by separately combining citric acid(1/4tspn) + potassium carbonate(1/4 tspn approx - until the fizzing stops).

1/4 tspn Sodium bicarbonate(Arm and Hammer brand is fine) A pinch of Borax(like a pinch of salt). 20 Mule Team Borax is fine. 250 mgs(1/8 tspn) potassium iodide -- Do not use Lugol's iodine because LI reacts adversely with the Borax.

Take this once a day

As my guide for the above, I've used Ted's safety advice from the Remedy Combinations section of EC, which is here:

I take this drink once a day for a good reason. It's like ammo resupply for the immune system front line elements like phagocytes, neutrophils and eosinophils which physically act to destroy the virus in the external mucus and in the blood. It's also a strongly alkaline drink, which also helps to reduce secondary infections from other bacteria(Borax also kills mycoplasma, mycobacterium and fungus).

I would take this drink as a preventative and, if I were to become infected with the coronavirus, I would take this drink twice a day or more to make absolutely sure that my immune system had the appropriate ammunition to fight back.

Bill, I just want to clarify. Is this potassium carbonate, not potassium bicarbonate? Thank you for all that you do to bring this information to us!

Thank you for information Bill, are you still using BHT in your daily intake mixed with coconut oil? Since BHT is an antioxidant can it be taking at the same time as the alkaline drink? And just so i understand the combinations with what i already have at home, I saw a person mentioned that Ted said Green Tea and Borax cancel each other out so I am planning to separate my green tree extract from your daily drink, but is it possible to take vitamin C at a later time in day too without neutralizing it? I also just recently purchased Lugols Iodine and debating on even taking it at night if i am taking the borax in the morning. I apologize for my thoughts being jumbled. i am trying to follow what makes sense and I am starting to lose what confidence I had in bringing the suggestions together

Thank you Bill. I made a nebulizer with colloidal silver but is 1% hydrogen peroxide more powerful? I was worried to use H2o2 cuz it can affect good cells too? Also Bill, when you mention nebulizing with h2o2 do you mean like "Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method by Bill Munro" or using one of those nebulizing machines? Thanks.

Replied by Bill

Hi Eri...

Here are some answers to your questions: "I made a nebulizer with colloidal silver but is 1% hydrogen peroxide more powerful?"

Both colloidal nano silver and 1% Hydrogen Peroxide are highly useful protocols. Both can kill a wide range of bacteria, viruses and fungi and both use oxidation to kill pathogens. But if you use Colloidal nano silver please make sure that the CS has silver nano particles that are 10 nm or less in size at a concentration of 10ppm to 20ppm. Hydrogen peroxide is probably cheaper and easier to use and just as effective as CS.

"When you mention nebulizing with h2o2 do you mean like “Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method by Bill Munro” or using one of those nebulizing machines?"

Again, it doesn't really matter whether you use Bill Munro's method or a nebulizer for HP inhalation. If you use Bill Munro's inhalation method, you must be sure to use a fine mist sprayer (like a perfume sprayer - not a nasal sprayer) which is probably the cheapest way to do it.

A nebulizer will also give you a fine mist of 1% HP but it's a wee bit more expensive. Both methods are useful IMHO.

I thought it might be useful and helpful to show what I'm currently taking by way of supplements, nutrients etc to avoid COVID-19 infection. There are two parts to my own current therapy.

The first part are therapies that stop you getting infected. The second part is what I would supplement if I do get infected.

I live in the Philippines and, fortunately or unfortunately, we are in full lockdown now with only supermarkets, pharmacies, gas stations etc open at the moment. To add to this problem, all retailer websites(local or otherwise) on the i/net are currently unable to consistently deliver goods purchased from these websites. So I can no longer reliably buy my nutrients/supplements online — I can only rely on what I already have.

Remedies that I'm currently taking to prevent infection:

BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene) + Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO)

I'm taking this once a day, first thing in the morning before food. The dosage is between 250mgs and 500 mgs per day. Do not take BHT dosages with food. I simply dissolve the correct amount of BHT powder in a tablespoon of Virgin Coconut Oil and take it like tha t(BHT is only soluble in fats or oils).

I then drink some coffee which also helps to accelerate BHT and VCO absorption into the body. Both the BHT and the VCO act in the same way to destroy the COVID-19 virus by fluidizing the virus' outer lipid envelope — this exposes the viral protein as foreign protein to the immune system which then automatically destroys it.

Another important property of BHT is that it is also able to penetrate the blood/brain barrier which means that BHT will also kill viruses in the brain, which must also help to lower the temperature of the brain(caused by inflammation) thus helping to also avoid high fever and coma.

I bought 500 grams of food grade BHT direct from an American-based chemical company(via the Lazada website) in the Philippines. It only cost me $12.73 for 500 grams of food grade BHT, which should give me more than 1000 daily doses of BHT(or about 3 years worth of daily BHT protection). I have also been taking BHT like this for over 3 weeks now without any side-effects or problems. And if I did become infected with COVID-19 I would continue taking the BHT at an increased dosage of 500 mgs three times a day outside mealtimes. For your reference — 1/4 tspn == 1000mg, 1/8 tspn = 500 mgs and 1/16 tspn = 250mgs.

Vitamin C

There is ample research proof that shows that Vitamin C helps to prevent colds and flu caused by viruses. I know this from Ted from Bangkok's EC posts and I have also read Linus Pauling's detailed book on proper Vitamin C usage. I'm currently taking 3gms of Vitamin C per day in separate one gram dosages. I take the alkaline form of vitamin C – 1000 mgs 3 times a day outside mealtimes. Per dose, just dissolve 1000 mgs or 1/4 tspn of vitamin C powder(as Ascorbic acid) in a half glass of water then just sprinkle in Sodium Bicarbonate(Arm & Hammer brand is fine) until the fizzing stops. Now you have the alkaline form of Vitamin C — Sodium Ascorbate — which Ted from Bangkok always recommends. More on this later. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to purchase any Lysine to take with the Vitamin C (that Ted recommends).

But I still have confidence on taking larger dose Vitamin C more frequently on its own(1000mgs Vit C taken 6 to 8 times per day at hourly intervals for COVID-19 pneumonia) which, from the current research, should also help fight the virus to heal or help prevent pneumonia. And from the video below, Vitamin C just on its own has already been successfully used in large dosages to successfully cure COVID-19 patients with complications in China.

Ted from Bangkok's Alkalizing Remedies

I am using Ted's Sodium Bicarbonate + water remedy as well as the Sodium Carbonate + Sodium Bicarbonate + Tripotassium Citrate remedy which is also called the carbicarb remedy.

In my last post, I also mentioned that, according to the Chinese research, hypokalemia (inadequate or low serum potassium) is indeed a serious symptom(which could cause coma and death) for people with COVID-19 infections.

For that I would simply take larger dosages of just tripotassium citrate on its own to ensure that intra-cellaluar levels of potassium are adequately maintained. From the Chinese research, patients with pneumonia complications were just given 3 gms of potassium salt to good effect. Interestingly, Ted from Bangkok has also recommended just taking tripotassium citrate on its own for cancer as well. This is because cancer loves sodium and hates potassium. This also seems to be the case with COVID-19 infections. Lagundi (Chaste Tree, Vitex negundo Linn.) This is a herb that is recommended by the Philippine government for bronchitis, colds & flu, respiratory problems, pneumonia, asthma, fever etc. A very useful herb. This herb is also regularly used in TCM and Ayurvedic herbal medicines but is little known in the West. I'm currently taking this herb in capsule form twice a day outside mealtimes.

Makabuhay(Heart Vine, Guduchi (Sanskrit), Giloy (Hindi), Tinospora cordifolia Linn.) + Chanca piedra (Bhumy Amalaki, Phyllanthus niruri Linn.) I

'm taking both these herbs, which both grow as weeds in my garden, in a combined decoction. Both these herbs have amazing health benefits. Both are anti-virals and anti-fever. Chanca piedra is also currently being researched for use against Hepatitis B and HIV. This is because Chanca piedra prevents viral reproduction by inhibiting the reverse transcriptase viral enzyme which is found in both the Hep B and HIV viruses. Some Indian research has also shown that COVID-19 virus has four HIV insertions that are concerned with viral injection into the host and viral replication. More recently, some Chinese research has also confirmed that these four HIV insertions do indeed exist in the COVID-19 virus. So it's perhaps a reasonable enough assumption that the COVID-19 virus also uses the reverse transcriptase enzyme for replication — which is the main reason I'm taking a decoction of both Makabuhay and Chanca piedra every day. By the way, the discovery of the HIV insertions also means that COVID-19 could not have evolved naturally — it must have been created in a lab to perhaps be used as a Bio-warfare agent — but that's another story for another day.

Remedies that I will take if I get infected with the COVID-19 virus:

The first thing I would do would be to appropriately increase all dosages in the above remedies.

The second thing I would do would be to nebulize 1% hydrogen peroxide at least three or four times a day to help protect my lungs. Hydrogen Peroxide kills all pathogens — including viruses — electrically and decomposes to oxygen and water which is also beneficial to the body.

I still have about 1/4 bottle of lugol's iodine left. I would use this to create one of Ted from Bangkok's famous healing remedies, which consists of the following: In a glass of water, add the following:

1. Add 1/4 tspn( 1000mgs) Ascorbic acid powder. Then add Sodium Bicarbonate until the fizzing stops. Now you have Sodium Ascorbate — the alkaline form of Vitamin C.

2. Add 6 drops of lugol's Iodine

3. Take this remedy 3 times a day outside mealtimes.

Why You Need to Take Vitamin C, Iodine and Sea Salt every day.

The simple answer is because you need to take them to provide the right ammunition for your immune system. The first line of defense for your immune system is using neutrophils and eosinophils etc in the external mucus to kill any viruses incoming in your nose, throat, lung and intestines.

It's also well known from the research that immune phagocytes kill pathogens — including viruses — by spraying certain poisonous substances over them to kill them. Then they are ingested by the phagocyte and removed by the liver. So, what substances does the immune system use to kill pathogens in the body? The immune system phagocytes mainly sprays out hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorous acid and hypoiodous acid over the virus to kill it. How can we ensure that the ammunition for our phagocytes are at their correct high levels? In short, Vitamin C is very important and necessary for the production of hydrogen peroxide used by the phagocytes. Sea salt — or sodium chloride — is also important source of chloride for the production of hypochlorous acid. And lugol's iodine — via the thyroid — is important for the adequate production of hypoiodous acid.

In another research study I have also read that hypoiodous acid was 7 times stronger in its anti-microbial effect and protection than hypochlorous acid when used against pathogens. So if you're not taking adequate amounts of iodine, sea salt and Vitamin C in your diet then, if you get infected, your immune system might be firing blanks at the COVID-19 virus.

Right now, the best protection you have against the COVID-19 virus is your own immune system. That's really why you should always keep your immune system healthy and capable as described.

Agree on both Iodine and Vitamin C but I believe you might want to take them separately, not together. Lots of google info available to explain the rationale. behind that.


I did some reading about other flu viru pandemics like Spanish Flu etc. What I came across was the use of Lomatium Dissectum also called Biscuit Root or Pungent Desert Parsley or Consumption Plant as positive treatments. All Native American remedies that seem to be strong anti virals. I found one place and bought but can't find any more. If anyone has tried it would like info and if know where to find it, I would like to know. Very interesting and informative site. Thanks for any info.

The lugols and the vitamin C might best not be taken at the same time as the lugols will be reduced to just the iodide form rather than a combination of iodine and iodide. Separate by at least 45 minutes so to get the best use from the lugol and the vitaminC.
