A total coincidence that I found this article on Hyaluonic Acid?

"... And Covid-19 has another especially insidious trick. Through another pathway, the team's data shows, it increases production of hyaluronic acid (HLA) in the lungs. HLA is often used in soaps and lotions for its ability to absorb more than 1,000 times its weight in fluid. When it combines with fluid leaking into the lungs, the results are disastrous: It forms a hydrogel, which can fill the lungs in some patients. According to Jacobson, once this happens, “it's like trying to breathe through Jell-O.”

HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here,,,,,,,,,,,,

Texas doctor finds solution. Just had the Rx sent to my drug store. Simple solution because BUDESONIDE, an asthma steroid, is cheap and available everywhere.

Hi. I enjoy reading your posts. I have a quick question. How did you get your doctor to prescribe the inhaler? Seems as though they don't want to do that down here unless you're an asthmatic. I hope you are doing well.

Cayenne pepper capsules are astonishing. Cayenne releases constriction of blood vessels in the lungs and kidneys, thins blood, reduces covid19 induced blood coagulation and removes covid19 induced blood clots, or thrombosis [3]. Cocoa is also a treatment for thrombosis[4]. Blood clots were found in 71% of fatal cases and 40% of ICU cases. Patients blood was so coagulated it clogs dialysis machines. [1] I found vascular issues tend to occur where the damaged ACE2 receptors are most concentrated, lung, kidney and cerebral (mostly back of the head, occasionally the crown and sides of the head). I survived worst case extreme cytokine storms in my lung. Day 75 and when I woke up I still feel a tightness in my lung when I take deep breaths. Cayenne pepper clears that right up very quickly. I take 2 capsules at least three times a day, and problem is relieved tremendously and improving over time. I made a couple of videos on this here: Doctors in Canada and the U.S are prescribing blood thinners even to mild covid19 cases [2] and even people sent home who have tested positive for covid19 just to prevent blood clots! Cayenne works for me and I feel confident enough not to see a doctor for prescription blood thinners at this point. On my worst days I did occasionally take an Advil and aleve. If you do have blood coagulation problems in your lung, one gram oral Cayenne will result in tactile cooling sensation directly in the lung. See my video descriptions for all the ins and outs.

My friend totally beat Covid 19 with my flu buster soup I've been making for about 9 years... Two cans of your favorite soup and add a Thai curry seasoning, thyme, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, black pepper and 1/4 cup of coconut oil, 2 cups of water ... She had lost her taste and smell the smell returned one day after soup. She was recovered in about 4 days.

How much of each seasoning did you use? Can you post the answer as I want to make right away. How much and how often to you eat the soup? Thank you!

Subject: Prune Harris Videos I just discovered these Prune Harris videos, and really like the energy exercises she's sharing. While watching the first video, I could really feel the energy being activated in my lung area(s). I felt I got a good sense of how powerful she said it was for her as she confronted what she felt was a coronavirus infection. Sounds like she "sailed" through the experience quite well. The energy exercise [for lungs] I most recommend for coronavirus health -- 7 min. Lung health is essential right now. Prune has created this powerful daily lung routine to help -- 13 min.

Hi everyone, I really enjoy all the remedies offered here. Please, I'm looking for advice. I think my husband had the coronavirus. We came back from an Ensenada cruise on March 7. As soon as he got off the boat he was having difficulty breathing. Two days after we went to urgent care. The doctor gave him steroids and send us home. Two weeks after we called to make an appointment to see a doctor. They did the test on him and called us 4 days after saying the test was negative. I think he had the virus but it possibly went away before he got the test. My concern is, he's had chest congestion and winded easily. The doctor prescribed more steroids but they are not helping. Could someone please advise. Thank you all so much.

also try Gary Craig's lung exercise or constricted breathing technique. Just google it or


Please take ginger tea 2 times a day and inhale steam through a kettle's spout 3 times a day,for 2 minutes at a time while having a towel on the head so the steam will be there to go in your nose and mouth. That will help!

In January I believe I had the virus but I didn't know about the coronavirus at the time. I rarely get sick and I am 73. It scared me because I smoked for many years before I quit and I was coughing.. really having trouble breathing. I thought, is this what I have to look forward to in my old age? That part lasted about 3 days but I was very tired for over a week. One night I laid down to sleep and my lungs were making so much noise I thought I wouldn't make it thru the night if I actually slept. I turned over on my stomach and immediately started breathing without all the noise of whatever was going on in my lungs. I purposely took slow breaths but I fell asleep pretty quickly and started getting better the next day. Recently I have read a few posts about laying on your front when having breathing problems. One doctor explained that the lungs are mainly in the back and it interferes with your breathing when laying on your back. He also said to lay over a bunched up blanket to ease your breathing. Another said to lay over an exercise ball if it gets really bad.

Some UK hospitals have introduced what they call "tummy time". Patients with the coronavirus are being turned on to their stomachs, which often makes it easier for patients to breathe. One doctor explained that excess fat on the abdomen can make it more difficult to breathe deeply

Regardless of what treatment you choose or even whatever illness you may catch, everyone should take the time to use some Buteyko breathing. There's only one way to release oxygen from the blood to the cells and that's the Bohr Effect which requires a pause after exhalation. Simply shallowly breathe in, breathe out and hold for a comfortable count to allow carbon dioxide into the blood to break the oxygen blood bond so the blood can release its oxygen payload to the cells. The stress and fear of illness creates a state of hyperventilation. Not the heaving sort they show on television but a simple, in/out/in breathing without pause. Just stop what you're doing and pay attention to your breathing several times per hour. Breathe in, breathe out and pause for a count of 5 or 10 or longer, if you can. One of the first organs to benefit from this release of oxygen from the blood is the lungs. I suspect it is what has kept my virus from dropping down into my lungs. I have also been taking ascorbic acid and cayenne, intuitively, rather than regularly.

I agree with this 100% I have been doing Buteyko breathing exercises for a year and I walk a mile a day now with not much discomfort and I have been diagnosed with copd. I take no inhalers and never have but doing the breathing puts co2 where it belongs attached with the red blood cells. It will also protect the lung from covid19. Here is the video. It is definitely worth watching. It can heal asthma. Sometimes the answer is simple.
