What about activated charcoal capsules for COVID-19? They saved our family from norovirus a few years ago.
Self Help Acupressure for colds and flus. Last Feb I was very sick, before doctors generally knew about Covid-19, ... One thing I did that helped relieve my symptoms/suffering was acupressure. What was helpful was a) it helped me with specific symptoms like coughing, sore throat, fatigue. b) its something i could use anytime, and as often as i needed... without any driving/appointments/insurance complexity... so I wanted to share it. I put the basic self help recipe for cold/flu here: http://www.21stcenturymed.org/self-help-immune-recipes.html It is also in French: http://www.21stcenturymed.org/jsj-self-help-immune-french.pdf Italian: http://www.21stcenturymed.org/jsj-flu-colds-italian.pdf There are many self help acupressure tips on flowsforlife.org. and if you want to know more about the 'science'-y aspects, www.21stcenturymed.org... including an interesting interview with Cheryl Gasner, Nurse Practitioner and Co-Founder of the Stanford Integrated Mind Body Program... she talks about healing while receiving an acupressure session (by me)... there is a video on youtube called 'Sick'Em- Get Well Anyway' but the sound is a bit wobbly, so the written interview is better I think...
ALKALIZATION BY LEMON WATER FOR COVID-19 – TREATMENT AND PREVENTION.
A virus is a submicroscopic infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of organism. When infected, a host cell is forced to rapidly produce thousands of identical copies of the original virus after virus enters into a host cell by fusion activation. Some virus undergoes Low-pH-Dependent fusion activation during entry into host cells. According to an article titled “Virus entry: What has pH got to do with it”, low pH helps viruses to activate their penetration mechanism. High pH forces viruses to stop their penetration mechanism. With respect to temperature, the activity of some virus types found to be more stable at 4 degree centigrade than at 23 degree centigrade. Any treatment for Covid-19 must stop this multiplication process a top priority.
There is an article available in the net titled “Conformational Change of the Coronavirus Peplomer Glycoprotein at pH 8.0 and 37 Degree Centigrade”.
According to this article, the Coronavirus was quite stable at pH 6.0 and 37 degree Centigrade (half-life, approximately 24 hours) but was rapidly and irreversibly inactivated by brief treatment at pH 8.0 and 37 degree (half-life, approximately 30 min). Basically it says that the Coronavirus will be irreversibly inactivated by brief treatment if the body cell pH is at 8.0 at body temperature 37 degree centigrade. Coronavirus strain associated with COVID-19 is called: SARS-CoV-2. But the above article is associated with another Coronavirus strain in the Lab. Half-life is the required time to reduce to half of its initial value. I made a calculation using half-time and assuming initial count of 1 trillion caronavirus inside a human body:
1) If the pH of body cells are maintained at pH 6 for 24 hours, coronavirus count will be 0.5 trillion coronovirus at the end of 24 hours.
2) If the pH of body cells are maintained at pH 8 for 24 hours, coronavirus count will be almost zero at the end of 24 hours.
Many hospitals in my state give lemon water throughout the day and also give immunity booster herbal medicine called Kabasura Kudineer few times in a day to COVID-19 patients. Many COVID-19 patients recovered in about 4 to 5 days. According to an article titled “Ayush Kadha, lemon water: Delhi Police mantra to protect personnel from Covid-19”, after consuming lemon water and immunity boosting herbal medicine, none of the police personnel from east Delhi had been infected with the virus for a considerable time. Ayush kadha is an ayurvedic herbal immunity booster medicine. New Delhi is one of Covid-19 hotspots in India. There is also an article available in Earth Clinic titled “Aspirin and Lemon Tea for Coronavirus recovery” by Marcie. According to her, she recovered from Coronavirus using lemon water and Aspirin in about 2 days. Aspirin has anti viral property.
1) Wash a lemon to remove any contaminants on the skin and cut the lemon with the skin into quarters. Suppose a person consumes 8 cups of drinking water per day. Then add 8 cups of drinking water to the lemon pieces and boil for about 20 minutes. Drink this warm lemon water throughout the day. Lemon skin is a rich source of antioxidant called ‘Flavonoid', a polyphenols.
2) Take 3 tablets of aspirin per day: one in the morning, one in the afternoon and the other in the night.
1) Consume warm lemon water instead of regular drinking water for one day in a week.
2) Take one and half tablets of aspirin in that day: half in the morning, half in the afternoon and half in the night.
It will be very difficult to determine pH level of body cells. Different parts of our body have different pH levels. But we can determine pH level of urine which is a body waste. Urine pH level will be in the range of 4.6 to 8.0. The average urine pH level will be 6.0. When we alkalize our body, we are trying to bring average pH level of urine much higher than 6.0. One can determine the effectiveness of warm lemon water to alkalize our body as follows: First measure pH level of urine. Consume one cup of warm lemon water. Then measure pH level of urine in the next time. There will be significant increase in the pH level indicating its alkalization effect.
I hope the information provided will be useful.
Add high alkaline foods to your diet also.
Now that a dog has tested positive for corona virus, I would love to know what remedies people have used to prevent any other viruses in dogs. I am looking for any anti-virals (herbs, foods, etc.) that I can mix in with her meat to make them palatable. Garlic b/c of its strong flavor is not an option---and aliums are not considered safe for dogs. I've been giving a little coconut oil each day as it's anti-viral and she loves it. My dogs have all considered it a treat.
I really can't understand why the US President is taking Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ). This drug has been recently undergone several high-profile trials (that have been completely ignored by the US media) both in China and the US. In 11 research papers on HCQ, it was found that HCQ was causing serious retinopathy problems (eye problems) as well as adverse heart events (heart attacks) which is why those 11 pieces of research did not recommend HCQ for COVID-19. It's also well-known that HCQ is an anti-malarial drug that is normally taken together with Artemisinin in Asia. Artemisinin has a unique way of killing pathogens -- including viruses. Artemisinin contains a weak peroxide bridge which, when it enters the pathogen, will immediately react strongly to the iron stores within the pathogen. Most pathogens, including viruses, are voracious for iron and have high stores of iron. When Artemisinin reacts with the iron, it produces excess hydrogen peroxide as a by-product within the pathogen, which immediately acts to destroy and kill the pathogen quickly. So if it were me, I really wouldn't give HCQ leg room but instead I would always prefer to take Artemisinin at 500mgs once a day. Artemisinin, being a natural plant chemical -- not a patented drug -- with a long history of anti-malarial use, is also far safer with a fairly high safety profile.
India claims ability to prevent corona virus using traditional medicine. Here is a list of their methods: https://pib.gov.in/PressReleseDetailm.aspx?PRID=1600940
Black cumin seed oil can prevent the coronavirus from spreading in your system and kill it. Recommendation of 1 teaspoon 3 times daily as a preventative measure. There is scientific research behind this. I also read research where black seed oil (Nigella Sativa) cured the HIV virus to the effect of no HIV virus trace in the patients system. The coronavirus may cause a cytokine storm syndrome, your body goes into overdrive to kill virus cells and that can become lethal. Black seed oil inhibits and protects you from this cytokine storm syndrome. If anyone has the virus and has bad symptoms, please try pure black cumin seed oil. It can help. If it's bad that please up the dose to deal with the symptoms. I would recommended 10ml 3 times a day that cured the HIV patient. Also boil the oil and breath it in it will help with the chest congestion / pneumonia even asthma. Google Crede oils and search for black cumin or seed oil. This is a good brand. If anyone does try these who is infected with the coronavirus please provide feedback. The prophet (peace be upon him) said that black seed cures everything besides death. Thanks
3 pieces of black pepper with a pinch of salt on every morning on empty stomach will improve immunity very much against many viruses. Nothing should be taken for one hour.After one hour one can consume his regular breakfast. Wonderful result you will see. This is a very simple remedy from Siddha Vaidya (siddha medicine) from India.
Has anyone heard of chewing on Boswellia pellets then swallowing it, for curing the virus?
Camphor 1M has been used by Dr. Rajan Sankaran, renowned homeopath from India, in many countries with success (see video interview of Barkha Dutt with Bajaj auto CEO Rajiv Bajaj). Also, I may recommend Bach flower remedy "Walnut' (for protection from outside influences and "Mimulus" (for fear of catching the virus). All members at home are taking the above Bach combination daily. Hope this helps.

Cayenne capsules are LIFE SAVERS, prevents covid19 induced stroke, heart attack, and blood clots; 70% of fatal cases had blood clot, 40% of ICU and severe home cases have blood clots. Canadian & US doctors prescribe blood thinners to even mild covid patients, sent back home, to prevent blood clots. Topical Himalayan pink salt will remove pains from kidneys and lower back. See my video's:
I've had corona, now day 78. I'm 36; was a vaper until I got worst case corona cytokine storms, which have a 40% mortality rate. On day 58 I took two cayenne capsules, I was not prepared for what was about to happen. I felt the cayenne go into my lungs and completely clear them out. My lung pains and kidney pains are nearly totally gone now. Himalayan Pink salt finely ground in a coffee grinder placed under the kidneys in bed cured them over night. See my videos for more information. I had also posted previously about cocoa being effective for covid19... well it turns out cocoa also treats thrombosis which is caused by covid19, which causes blood clots. It also turns out cloves are the best iron reducer on earth, free iron oxidative stress is caused by covid19's attack up on hemoglobin as well, so get on cloves. See my videos for details.

Something I have not seen posted here but which is certainly helping in china is acupressure/acupuncture/reflexology. Here are the points that I know of which help pneumonia, upper respiratory issues, coughing, MERS, and SARS: Ding Chuan (M-BW-1) B10 CV22 GB21 LI4 LU1 LU2 LU5 LU6 LU7 LU8 LU9 KD3 KD6 KD27 ST36 ST40 Also pranayama breathing (aka wim hof breathing) is good for breath and staying calm.
I've been killing viruses with just cinnamon oil. Rubbed on soles of feet and palms it sweeps through the whole body very quickly. Follows the nervous system. Recently hit by an aggressive viral lung infection, I found inhaling the fumes off the bottle for only 5 minutes destroyed it. It also really wakes up the brain.
Corona Virus and Coconut Oil: (I'm not a scientist or doctor so my terminology might be wrong) The most recent news reports that the COVID-19 CELL has a fatty outer layer. If this is true, is it good or bad to consume Coconut Oil during this time, in other words, because Coconut Oil is fatty, (I assume) does it help me or hurt me to continue oil pulling or taking CO in my food?
I got cured of the Epstein-Barr virus but following the directions I learned here at earthclinic: 2 tablespoons of coconut oil every 8 hours. The coconut oil was virgin coconut oil buy Nutiva that's the better stuff. I was fine in four days maybe it'll help with this virus called Coronavirus. I remember when I asked the doctor so what's the cure for mono which is Epstein-Barr virus. He replied there is no cure I said how long as it lasts is two weeks to two years, I headed straight for earthclinic. Come and found this link right here and was cured in four days no problem. Praise God! https://archive.earthclinic.com/coconut-oil-for-mono.html
Monolaurin My doctor recommended this for viruses and it was effective when I recently felt a cold beginning. I googled "monolaurin Coronavirus" and found an article that stated monolaurin is effective against coronavirus which was written in 2012. Hopefully it will work against this Novel or Covid virus. You can buy monolaurin online.
For quite sometime I have been blending coconut oil into my morning coffee. My husband is now doing the same. He has never once voluntarily took coconut oil, but he has seen it work wonders for viruses in our kids. His work is considered essential so is around other people some and he is doing what he can to prevent covid19. Today I dug out my astragalus root. Years ago my youngest child had some angry looking tick bites and I was concerned about Lyme. I put him on 1 capsule of astragalus root a day to prevent Lyme. He took it for months. He was about 4. In the fall, while he was still on it, every member of my family got sick with a virus that he did not get. I think the astragalus was working as it is touted to do. I ordered some more astragalus root today and plan to get everyone in my family on that right now as a preventative. I must not be the only one with this idea as I am seeing it out of stock in several places that I order from. What I tell my kids, "It won't hurt. It might help." My version of the Hippocratic oath. ;) ~Mama to Many~
Nebulize Salt/Baking Soda Solution and Colloidal Copper! (also Hydrogen Peroxide option)
I live in San Francisco and recently acquired something that I believe to be Coronavirus. I had a sore throat for about a week, which turned into tightness in my lungs, and a very mild cough. Then all of the sudden one night around 2am I felt like I couldn't get enough oxygen. My hands and knees were shaking, I was cold and shivering, and had a low fever of 99.3. I was tested on Saturday but the results will not come in for 5-7 business days. I will update later to let you know.
BUT I wanted to let everyone I can know, what worked for me to treat it.
My mom had sent me some colloidal copper, 10ppm some time ago, and advised me to use it in a nebulizer for any kind of lung infection. I also have successfully used a saline solution many times before to help treat cold and coughs with the nebulizer.
So, when I was all of the sudden feeling like I couldn't breathe, I made my saline solution of:
1 cup distilled or boiled and cooled water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Only add the baking soda to the water once it has been cooled, and do not heat the water once the baking soda has been added. Heating the baking soda causes a chemical reaction in the baking soda which will transform it into something else that is irritating (I know from experience).
I put 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of this mixture in the nebulizer and nebulized for about 20 minutes.
Immediately after that, I put 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of the 10ppm colloidal copper in the nebulizer and nebulized that another 20 minutes.
Within 20-30 minutes of this treatment I started to be able to breathe again, felt like I was getting enough oxygen again and I went to sleep. I have been doing this treatment twice a day (morning and night) since, and my lungs and energy are gradually improving, and I have not had any more shortness of breath episodes. It was genuinely frightening. I am 36 years old so I am also not in a particularly at-risk age group.
I would advise everyone to get a nebulizer and colloidal copper (10ppm colloidal silver might work too – though this recent study showed significant growth inhibition for bacteria but not viruses in colloidal silver https://www.liebertpub.com/doi/10.1089/acm.2011.0681) , and make a salt/baking soda solution to keep in the cabinet in advance of catching this thing, because when it hits, it hits hard and all of the sudden, and you feel like there is no time.
If someone is very sick, nebulizing more often would be appropriate/necessary. 20 minutes of nebulizing every hour (ten minutes each solution), or 10 minutes of nebulizing every 15-20 minutes (5 minutes each) are possibilities, but can be varied as needed. When my daughter had a very bad croup last year the only thing that helped to keep that terrible cough down was nebulizing saline /baking soda solution every hour for 20 minutes.
Also, I have a friend in L.A. that I sent a nebulizer to recently. He told me he had been feeling something in his lungs for a few days. He only had H2O2 (3% hydrogen peroxide) on hand so I told him to try nebulizing some of that. He did that for 10 minutes 3 times over the next 2 days and it went away. I personally don't like nebulizing hydrogen peroxide because it makes me lose my voice, but I would definitely do it in a pinch vs. not getting enough air and having a virus take over my lungs! It also fizzles and converts partly to oxygen in your lungs so I believe it could help deliver oxygen directly into your lung tissues. It is harsher than copper though, as it's a fairly strong acid, and I don't think you would want to use it for extended periods of time because it might start to burn your lungs over time. So I recommend getting copper.
Also, if you have to use it on a baby, child, or someone else very sensitive, I would probably try mixing the copper and saline mixture together in equal parts, as the copper has a tendency to be a little irritating at the beginning of nebulizing and makes me cough a bit until my lungs adjust. For a baby or sensitive person this might be too much, and the saline solution helps to buffer it.
Also, do not use an enclosed mask (especially on a baby or someone who cannot communicate) with the saline solution. Hold it an inch or so away from the face or the salt condensates/crystallizes on the skin around the mouth and is also very irritating.
Some research showing these substances kill or inhibit viruses and/or reduce virus load in a sick person:
Hydrogen Peroxide (CDC itself says 3% H2O2 kills coronavirus):
I cured myself of viral meningitis. I am ex design engineer, not a doctor. I had to troubleshoot myself... consequently I had to learn everything till I found. With luck my restored health.... this in a nutshell was my takeaway: COMPLEX CARBS cabbage and cauliflower zucchini broccoli 80 percent of your meal and more important then diets an fads then complete amino acids like moringa ..lean meat but you absolutely need healthy fat I use coconut oil flax seed chia seed meals .. Cut out all forms of simple sugar: The body is a filter to 3 bad actors: virus, yeasts and bad bacteria you starve them of sugar virus feeds on heavy metals you detox with cilantro spirilina and fruits like bananas... FOOD IS MEDICINE SAFEWAY IS POISON Find foods in these categories: Amino acids antioxidants antiimflamitories omega3 oliec acids trace mineral vitamins...
Most importantly right NOW,carry a bottle of oregano essential oil. It kills viruses if you use it in time... Google foods in all those categories and stop eating for taste...and build your immune now! Probiotics, capryl acid, and colostrum should be top of your list.
I found this info helpful during short supply of many items for cleaning/disinfecting. It comes from the Cleveland Medical Clinic & posted as cleaning methods for nebulizer which is made of plastic material. The disposable is a weaker plastic & can only use the cold process. The cleaning method is a guide only, in case you are short of normal supplies. I think white vinegar is still available. Disposable nebulizers should use one of these cold disinfecting methods: Soak in 70% isopropyl alcohol for 5 minutes. Soak in 3% hydrogen peroxide for 30 minutes. Soak in a one-part white vinegar to 3-part water solution for 30 minutes. After any of these cold disinfecting techniques, rinse well and air dry. Non-disposable nebulizers may be disinfected as described above. They may also be disinfected by any of the following heat disinfecting methods: Boil for 5 minutes. Microwave in a bowl of water for 5 minutes. Put in the dishwasher at 158 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Use an electric steam sterilizer (baby bottle sterilizer).

I successfully have used DMSO to stop “fever blisters/cold sores” many times since my 1st use of it in the early 80s to save teeth (fractured the enamel) in an automobile accident. It must be applied several times BEFORE blisters form, when the area is swelling, tingling and/or itching. This past year, I remembered my mother poking Vicks VapoRub up my nose as a child to open nasal passages. Since DMSO is a byproduct of paper milling (not petroleum industry), & has/is still used for nerve injury in expensive race horses, this past year I decided to try putting it IN my nose (like my mom did the Vicks) when I 1st started sneezing after being exposed to cold/flu virus. After putting the DMSO creme (remains at the bottom of a very old jar) the swelling in my nose & lips went down, the dripping running stopped & I quit sneezing). I have not had the flu or a “cold” since I started doing this at 1st symptoms & I have NOT had a flu vaccination since I retired from public education 8 yrs. ago. Please be assured I am NOT RECOMMENDING this. Just relating my personal experience. I advise EVERYONE to do their own research & make their own decisions as to health care & I do advise seeing a licensed medical person for any symptoms of illness.
Elderberry Extract ( Capsules) , the active ingredient in Elderberry stops Viruses in their tracks, it stops it proliferating in your body. I knocked out the "Virus" in 5 days using this and high doses of Vit C, 2 to 4 grams a day, spread out during the day, not all at once. Coconut Oil (3 teaspoons a day or as often as you want if you have a sore throat), and a high dose multi B vitamin complex. I never even had to take any Paracetamol.
