I had covid last week, rather mild, but my sinuses took a beating. I have always struggled with dry and inflamed sinuses and will usually get an infection yearly. Well I tried getting into the local clinics to get an antibiotic. No luck. For 4 days I tried and they are so overwhelmed that the wait is 4-5 hrs if you can even get registered. So sitting in the parking lot this morning I came across your website. I went to the store and bought some coconut oil and went home and started applying it in my nostrils and using it in my neti pot. It is evening now and I am in bed and I feel wonderful. I have no pain. I have no congestion. And best of all, I can smell and taste my food again. I am amazed that this happened in less than 12 hrs and I dont need and antibiotic or prednisone. I am going to continue using the oil daily in hopes of not needing the Afrin any longer. Thank you so much! Feel free to use this as a review.
Admin: It might be a time to encourage use of virgin coconut oil, being not only anti-inflammatory but also anti-viral.
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!
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. ;)

I also recall, from years ago, reading about the significance of both vitamins A AND D, together. Which made me think of Cod Liver Oil which led me to a preliminary clinical trial paper regarding Cod Liver Oil and Covid. Cod liver oil is where the vitamins A & D in A&D ointment come from. Oddly, it has the cod liver oil listed as the "inactive ingredient". Actually, I suppose it would be odd if they'd listed as the ACTIVE ingredient, instead which would have been like painting a big target on themselves...
From clinical trials starring Cod LIver Oil, "Ethics" section
"In conclusion, the study has a low risk of negative health-or other effects on participants and a high probability of identifying whether cod liver oil can prevent Covid-19 and other respiratory infections. Furthermore, the encouraging preliminary data suggests that the morbidity caused by Covid-19 will be significantly reduced in the cod liver oil group adding to the benefit of the study. Further adding to the benefit is the prospect of collecting high-quality data on the more general health effects of cod liver oil use. In total, we consider that the benefits of the study far outweigh the risks and disadvantages"
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):
Costus with honey for covid 19:
This message is translated from Arabic Facebook group:
"I had covid 19 since a week.I had symptoms of the disease from a high fever, a violent cough, and pain in the joints. I have nearly died several times. I continued on the antibiotic nutrients without a result. Until I received a message via WhatsApp recommending me to use the Indian Costus with honey. I used it the first time and the symptoms started to subside, I used it the second time and the symptoms ended completely. Thankfully, the sense of smell and taste has returned and the cough has ended permanently. The fever disappeared."
EC: Costus is the root of the plant Saussurea lappa, a tall perennial plant that grows on high valleys in the Kashmir region. It is commonly used to lower blood sugar.

I feel it is important to mention that Russell Blaylock, MD, author of "Excitotoxins, the Taste that Kills" declares MSG can raise the body core temperature. Truthinlabeing.org reports hidden sources are rampant. To avoid a false positive diagnosis it is my opinion not to eat or drink anything only several hours prior to any testing. It should be noted that 12-24 hr. fasting can cause natural glutamate levels to rise. It is also my opinion that our entire food supply, including supplements and medications, has become toxic to us. I feel we are all on our own to discover what we can tolerate and what is safer for each of us to ingest. KT

Has anyone taken a detox approach to tearing this virus? vs Ivermectin & some of the RX items.
I have using bentonite clay, or other, activated charcoal, chlorella/spirulina, parsley, cilantro, thyme, oregano, raw garlic, ginger, tumeric, mornings, bind with coconut oil plus acids lemon, lime, raw ACV? I use these all plus, lots of green drinks, switched saline rinses to xylitol, just added grapefruit seed extract, and Lugol's iodine. I've always taken low dose zinc, know that Vit C helps heal and repair tissue, sunshine (Vit. D) is crucial for cell health, and we all need exercise to move blood, work lungs and joints. I firmly believe low sugar, refined
Processed foods are also crucial. I do not believe in the excessive mask protocol being pushed on us.
I've been around family & friends who had the virus & feel I've been exposed, I also volunteered for an antibody blood test through UT public health, so far all is negative, though I was hoping positive, still 2 more test to do ..
Please share any information, Re detox approach..
Just trying to protect myself and 2 teens, we've remained healthy thus far.
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.
I am 80 yrs. old and last year when this virus started, I started having runny nose and sniffles. I started using a Black Elderberry tincture I had made several years ago. I started taking 1 tsp. in a cup of water once a day and in a few days it had stopped. I have used this all year and have had no symptoms of COVID-19.
- To make it, you need 1/4 lbs. of dried black elderberries. (must be Sambucus Negra).
- Clean a quart jar, add 1/4 lbs. of fired elderberries. Now fill to the top with vodka 80 proof. Put the lid on tight. Store in a dark cupboard and shake once every few days.
- Label and date your jar. Let it sit for at least 30 days before you stain it. You can use it without straining it also and it will continue to get stranger.
Preventive. Adult - 1 tsp. in water once daily.
Children. scale back by weight.
For flu, HSN (bird flu) and other viruses, take 3 x a day in water. You can let it sit for 30 mins or so and some of the alcohol will evaporate.
All tinctures are made with alcohol.
With these new strains coming around, I now take 1 tps in water in the morning and one before I go to bed.
I got this recipe from a doctor at the Herbal Healing Academy who passed away several years ago. Hope this helps someone. Blessings and take care. Jerald.
I took elderberry tincture (along with other supplements) when I had suspected covid-19. I had read that elderberry stops respiratory viruses replicating in the lungs. I found it really helpful. I will always keep some in my cupboard. I took it for about two weeks with no side effects.
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.
I know unconventional thinking is easily discounted; however, I will provide my anecdotal case. In 2001 I was suffering from several days of 103 fever and incredible headaches and body aches. Tylenol and aspirin did nothing. It continued to get worse over a 10 day period. I believe I had the West Nile virus. I knew a person that had a device that sent extremely low amperage electricity through a person being treated and it used silver electrodes. After one treatment, my headaches were over and for the first time in weeks I was able to sleep, free of pain. I took several more treatments over the next week. The treatments lasted 1 hour an 15 minutes at an intensity that I set for myself. I would turn the dial until my fingers kind of quit working. I recovered from whatever I had. There are websites that talk about the use of electricity to treat a virus and there are websites that talk about the use of silver to treat a virus. As there has never been any clinical evaluation of the treatment I took, I do not know whether it was a placebo or it actually did something to help me. I have the specs for the machine and the electrical current.
Because it has been shown that the virus cannot live in temperature above about 135 degrees F, I think my daily sauna use was a key in helping me overcome the virus. My symptoms presented as a headache one day and then what felt like a head cold for several days and a sinus infection for several days.
In addition to daily use in my portable far infrared sauna, I followed the vitamin c protocol of two thousand milligrams every 1-2 hours, and melatonin hourly.
I am also taking vitamin D, lysine, and zinc daily. As well as gargling with hydrogen peroxide and sniffing it up my nose diluted with water. I also gargled with salt water for the first few days. I have lost my sense of smell but can still taste some.
I am feeling almost completely better, but curious to see how my energy level comes back.
I may have mentioned this in another part of the now massive Earth Clinic :-). Yyeeaayy! I love this website, and I am very impressed with and grateful for the founder of it! I endured colds and flus my entire life as many as three or four a year. It took me as much as four weeks to recover sometimes and one time I developed bronchitis. This may be why I discovered earth clinic. I did start receiving alternative newsletters, and one of them had a piece on medicinal mushrooms for immunity. I tried them and they helped my immunity as long as I remembered to take them daily. Then, a few years later I discovered a nutrient called Epicor. It is now showing up in several immunity formulas offered by companies that are big names in the supplement business and for good reason. Epicor is simply fermented yeast, but, boy, does it work! And, remembering to take one daily helps a lot, too! I can happily report that I have not had a cold or flu in three, maybe four years. I have had two incidents in which I felt like maybe I was getting something so I started taking Epicor every few hours and never got sick. I felt normal in one day the first time and two days the second time. The company that makes Epicor explains that it is Saccharomyces cerevisiae which is the strain of yeast used for making bread, wine and for brewing. And, I'm sure many of you who are into alternative healing know that our immune systems are based in our intestines and that fermented foods boost immunity. So, I am adding other fermented foods to my diet and feel that if I am exposed to the dreaded Coronavirus I will either not get sick or I will have a much milder version of what I might have endured. My son and his girlfriend take medicinal mushrooms and stay well, too, but at this time they have added the fermented yeast. I did send this information to CNN along with a link to a government study of Epicor. I also sent it to Sanjay Gupta directly as well as Chris Cuomo who has the virus, but I have not heard a word on that channel about any form of alternative healing. Hmm, I wonder why?

I think I'll wear garlic ✌️♥️
Garlic & sunshine cured my husband of Covid-19. Each day he felt better & better!
My husband got Covid-19 and I wanted to share what we did to have him well in 5 days, after being diagnosed. He had already been sick for 4 days, but we did not know yet, that it was Covid. His symptoms were intense, even though he & our entire family received the Pfizer vaccination about 10 months ago. The following regime helped him to feel so much better right away. After four days of the regime, he was almost completely well.
This is what we did to battle Covid:
1. In the morning, drink a glass of water with a capful of lemon in it, with a sprinkle of Black Pepper, Or have water with 2-4 capfuls of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. (Wait an hour before eating, or better yet, do not eat until 3pm or 4pm)
2. Then, (to combat Covid that has entered the lungs), suck on a small clove of raw garlic. (choose a small clove, about 3/4” long & 1/3 inch thick. If your cloves are bigger, just cut them in half or in thirds). The goal is to suck on the clove as long as you can. As the garlic flavor decreases, you can chew it a little, to get more flavor out, until you eventually chew it completely & then swallow the rest of the garlic with water. Keeping the garlic in the throat will give it time to kill the bacteria that is seemingly trapped in the throat area, as well as get rid of the Covid bacteria which is seemingly trapped in the lungs.
3. As he sucked on the garlic, we sat outside in the sun for about 15-20 minutes, as I read our favorite relationship book by Joel Osteen called, “Our Best Life Together.” (I highly recommend this affordable ebook to help heal & strengthen marriages). Getting sun helps the body to receive natural Vitamin D & light exposure, which helps the mind return to positivity & the body to be restored to wellness.
4. He did take a nap in the middle of the day, for about an hour or two. (Try to listen to your body, & rest until you feel like getting up).
5. I encourage him to stay away from eating sugar treats, as sugar feeds Covid. I also encouraged him to eat Salads, but he said he didn't feel he could chew it, so I made him a lot of soups, using the chunky & other canned soups as a base, and I would add some fresh onions to it, and sometimes Bell Pepper, Carrots & Potato. Basically, I just looked at the ingredients on the can, and added all that I had which was listed.
After doing all of these things, the following day, he felt a lot better. Keep in mind that he had already been terribly sick for 4 days, before we found out it was Covid, and by this point, he had shooting headache pain, which was unbearable. He also had a sore throat which he said felt like it was on fire. He was able to breathe okay, but soon the Covid bacteria went into his lungs, and his voice became very low, and he began coughing. This is when we found out it was Covid, and started this regime.
Amazingly, the following day, he felt better, instead of worse, and each day he kept improving. By day two of this regiment, he was feeling so much better, and by day 5, he was completely well.
Another thing to note, is that in our family of 6, only he & my Son (who doesn't live with us) got sick with Covid. The rest of us stayed well. Things that I did for the rest of us, was to drink the 2-3 capfuls of Bragg's Vinegar in water. We didn't do it every day, but maybe every other day. At one point, my other son started to feel sick, so I gave him the Vinegar Water, and then I had him lay down & I poured Hydrogen Peroxide in his ear & set a timer for 10 minutes, and then did the other ear. (It will start to fizz, but don't worry, it doesn't hurt, It is actually very soothing. The fizzing means that it is killing the bacteria.)
After 10 minutes, dump the hydrogen peroxide out of the ear & then gently use a Q-tip to clean the ear. Then do the other ear. Surprisingly, my son said he could tell that he felt better. The following day my son had no symptoms. Meanwhile, the rest of us 3 stayed symptom free. I know that God helped our family to know what to do to overcome Covid & to be made well & whole so quickly. I hope this can be a blessing for everyone who is suffering from Covid & other sicknesses. Remember, God IS with Us & trying to help us. We are indeed All His family!

I just got thru speaking with a friend Jason (he is a licensed naturopathic) about Dr. Reuben Schwartz's battle with Covid19 virus, he is the Amish doctor here in Southeastern Kentucky and Jason studied under him. He is as old as “Methuselah” but still in great health and practicing medicine.
He was sick for only 3-4 days using only herbs as medicine. Here is what he used:
Garlic powder “O” size capsules and Cajeput essential oil (cousin to tea tree oil)
He complained about his lungs hurting and a lung crud developing. He applied Cajeput oil straight undiluted on his chest, back, and neck several times daily to kill the infection and open up his lungs. Please keep in mind some people may have sensitive skin so dilute 1:1 ratio with coconut or olive oil.
Protocol: He was taking 2 garlic capsules 3x/daily. 2 cloves of garlic are considered a medical dose. Take with food if you have a sensitive stomach.
Garlic has been used as traditional medicine by cultures around the world, including by the Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks, Japanese, Native Americans, and Romans. Its uses include fighting infection, improving heart disease, preventing certain types of cancers, and functioning as an antioxidant, and many more.
How to Make your own Garlic Bulb Powder for Capsules: 2 ways to make.
Peel and thinly slice the garlic into ⅛ inch pieces. Place garlic slices onto dehydrator racks without overlapping pieces. Once fully dried, place the garlic in a blender or food processor and blend until a fine powder is achieved. Use a fine-mesh strainer to sift the blended powder before placing in a storage container.
- Or -
Lazy way: You could buy Garlic Powder in the spice aisle at most grocery stores, place the garlic in a blender or food processor (I use an electric coffee grinder) and blend until a fine powder is achieved. Use a fine-mesh strainer to sift the blended powder before placing in gelatin capsules. Load this powder into size “O” gelatin capsules.
