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.
The universities do not teach all things, so a doctor must seek out old wives, gypsies, sorcerers, wandering tribes, old robbers, and such outlaws and take lessons from them. A doctor must be a traveler… Knowledge is experience.
Grapefruit seed extract kills bacteria, fungi and viruses. I have used it for everything from common cold, stomach virus, UTI, to strep. Dries up poison ivy, disinfects household items, clothes, towels, etc. I have it on hand always. I put ten drops in an empty capsule. But you can put in water or juice and drink. It's very bitter though .. it's an amazing product.

What about using saunas to kill the virus. If the sauna is hot enough maybe it can kill the virus?
Dr, Laub with Laub Biochem: 2002 Issued patent for use of humates against herpes viruses awarded. 2002 Issued patent for use of humates against hemorrhagic fever viruses awarded. 2002 Issued patent for use of humates against HIV/AIDS awarded. 2003 Issued patent for use of humates against infulenza viruses awarded. Humate is readily available and cheap to make: Humic and Fulvic Acid
It is very clear that different methods work for different people.
Bottom line: Fluids are a must as soon as possible (when you're not feeling "yourself"). Dehydration is the culprit of many ailments and can be detrimental to our overall health...especially when fever is involved & our body burns up fluids at a much faster rate. Don't Drink alcoholic beverages (dries up body more) Don't drink high salt fluids (ex: canned soup) or processed sugars which can also contribute to circulatory inflammation.
DO DRINK WATER (preferably warm to increase sweat) with electrolytes (potassium) DO use humidifiers (to get through skin and into system) moisture through skin however possible
DO DRINK anti-inflammatory herbal teas ( many herbs are anti inflammatory, in addition to pepper fruits which keep the circulatory and digestive system flowing )
DO Gargle (ex: saltwater natural expectorant ) **Avoid over the counter suppressants which hold back the mucous which needs to be excreted increasing the risk of infection and fluid buildup in lungs.
DO Rest body
DO keep fresh air flowing (open a window whenever possible)
***Make a habit out of :
Washing hands thoroughly for 20 seconds each time Cover mouth when coughing and sneezing Brush your teeth, gums, and tongue for 120 seconds each time Keep hands and fingers away from eyes and nose.
Hydrogen Peroxide Gargling & Nasal Rinses May Prevent Viral Infection
The following link is from early September from a hospital in Ghana, which is an extremely poor country where they have no money for PPEs etc. The hospital workers caring for COVID patients gargled 3 times a day with dilute hydrogen peroxide, and none of them got COVID. Seems too simple and too cheap of a prevention, sadly not promoted by our media. (See excerpt of Ghana report below.)
To read the whole orthomolecular news bulletin: “COVID-19 Efficient Protection of Contacts is Simpler than Imagined”
The virus tends to live in the nasopharynx for 10 days before causing respiratory problems and extreme inflammation. Hydrogen peroxide kills the virus nearly on contact.
You can read another article from Penn State College of Medicine: “Mouthwashes, oral rinses may inactivate human coronaviruses.”
This article confirms that the viruses are inactivated by mouthwashes, nasal rinses, and hydrogen peroxide on contact or in less than 30 seconds.
This is a quite simple and cheap prevention that anyone can do. I have been gargling with food grade 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to ward off sore throats and colds for many years. (It also can whiten your teeth.) You can find food grade hydrogen peroxide at any natural food store, co-op, Whole Foods etc. or online.
The Ghana Hospital used 1.5%, so you could dilute 3% hydrogen peroxide with distilled water 50-50 and make it go farther or use the 3%. Do not swallow. Just gargle for 30-60 seconds or more and spit out.
Nasal rinses: I have been using nasal rinses once a day for a long time, and haven't had a sinus infection for many years. I use Xlear brand because it contains xylitol, which kills fungi as well as other bacteria. Neilmed is another brand of saline rinse. Each can be bought with a kit including a squeeze bottle to rinse the nose.
These are remarkably simple techniques to keep you healthy and more evidence is making it clear that the simple techniques can help prevent catching COVID. You can use this technique to help especially if you are around family members or friends who have it or if you have been exposed. Gargling with hydrogen peroxide 3 times a day has shown to be preventive in hospital workers taking care of COVID patients.
Here is an excerpt from another article about vitamin C used for prevention and includes suggestions if you get sick.
“High-dose Vitamin C Cuts COVID Deaths by Two-Thirds”
Orthomolecular news article: Where Does Hydrogen Peroxide come in?
Dilute hydrogen peroxide can help to destroy invading viruses, bacteria and fungi. We have suggested deployment of hydrogen peroxide as an oral cleansing agent to destroy the virus. None of our clinical research team members and their relatives, protecting themselves only with face masks while caring for COVID-19 patients, who used hydrogen peroxide, have had symptoms suggestive of the disease. At the Shai Osudoku District Hospital in Dodowa, seven members of staff with minimal protective clothing who cared for a COVID-19 patient and who used hydrogen peroxide mouthwash, did not contract the disease. Previously, 27 other staff at that hospital had become infected caring for COVID-19 patients. Dr Richard Cheng's success with Vitamin C is published and known to the WHO, NIH, and CDC . To augment the effect of vitamin C, we use nasal drops containing 0.5% hydrogen peroxide and reduce the risk of infecting healthcare workers.
Vitamin C and COVID prevention and treatment article excerpt:
But even better is to prevent a person ever getting into this critical phase of COVID-19. That's why early intervention, taking 1,000 mg of vitamin C an hour upon first signs of infection, is likely to save even more lives. This reduces duration and severity of symptoms, with most people becoming symptom-free within 24 hours. It takes on average, two weeks of being sick with COVID-19 to trigger the ‘cytokine storm' phase. During that time, the patient is at risk of becoming vitamin C deficient and then developing acute “induced scurvy.” If you can beat the infection within 48-hours you'll be out of the woods. You can lower your risk even further by taking vitamin D (5000 IU/d, or more: 20,000 IU/d for several days if you already have symptoms), magnesium (400 mg/d in malate, citrate, or chloride form), and zinc (20 mg/d) Prevention is better than cure.
You can see previous Prolonews Newsletters for immune boosting supplements and other prevention and treatments that are effective.
I have been using this method with a nebulizer for years. I inhale several times, 2-3 times per day. I used to get the flu twice a year, every year. Since I started H2O2 therapy I have not had even a cold or sniffle in the last 10 years! Could not worry less about Covid.
I have also used it more intensively to help with detoxing (longer sessions 4 times a day), and on the 2nd or 3rd day experienced an intense Herxheimer reaction immediately after, which proved beyond a doubt the effectiveness of this therapy.

Hydrogen Peroxide as an Adjuvant Therapy for COVID-19: A Case Series of Patients and Caregivers in the Mexico City Metropolitan Area
Knowledge of the antiseptic effects of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) dates back to the late 19th century, and its mechanisms of action has been amply described. Globally, many physicians have reported using H2O2 successfully, in different modalities, against COVID-19. Given its anti-infective and oxygenating properties, hydrogen peroxide may offer prophylactic and therapeutic applications for responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. We report a consecutive case series of twenty-three COVID-19 patients (of 36 initially enrolled) who had been diagnosed by their primary care physician (mean age: 39, range: 8 months–70 years; 74% male) and twenty-eight caregivers in the Mexico City Metropolitan Area who received a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) telemedicine treatment with H2O2 taken by mouth (PO, at a concentration of 0.06%), oral rinse (mouthwash, 1.5%), and/or nebulization (0.2%). We describe the treatment program and report the response of the COVID-19 patients and their caregivers. The patients mainly recovered well, reporting feeling “completely better” at 9.5 days on average. Two (9%) were hospitalized prior to joining the study, and one did not fully recover. Patients frequently reported nausea and sometimes dizziness or vomiting related to the oral treatment. None of the twenty-eight caregivers in close contact with the patients reported contracting COVID-19. Given its low cost and medical potential and considering its relative safety if used properly, we suggest that randomized controlled trials should be conducted. These should include both SARS-CoV-2-positive and SARS-CoV-2-negative participants, with single or combined modes of administration of H2O2, to study the benefits of this simple molecule and offer safe guidance regarding its use by health professionals.
A case series is described on twenty-three ambulatory patients diagnosed with COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) and monitored by telemedicine, using an adjuvant therapy of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), administered PO (per orem), by mouth rinses (oral gargles), and by inhalation routes. We report the clinical outcomes of the consecutive COVID-19 patients and their caregivers, who were treated by our medical team between May 11 and July 19,2020.
Among other things, the team conducted a nonexhaustive review of the scientific literature to identify possible therapeutic and prophylactic alternatives. This review was supplemented by literature from the complementary, traditional, and integrative medicine fields. Our aim was to identify nonstandard therapeutic alternatives for treating viral infections, such as COVID-19, that could be easily and cheaply attained in Mexico over the counter and aid in the primary health response to the pandemic. With these requisites in mind, we identified this clinically useful molecule, hydrogen peroxide.
Dating back to 1888, Love et al. reported the use of hydrogen peroxide as an anti-infectious agent and described it as effective in treating numerous diseases including scarlet fever, diphtheria, runny nose, coryza, whooping cough, asthma, hay fever, and tonsillitis . Specifically for viral diseases that attack the respiratory system, the first reported medical success using hydrogen peroxide therapy dates back exactly 100 years, when doctors Oliver and Murphy reported in The Lancet how they had successfully applied intravenous hydrogen peroxide to treat a group of patients with influenza; they reduced by half the mortality among this group of patients, which consisted of troops from the Indian army during the 1918-1919 Spanish Flu pandemic in the Mesopotamian valley .
Although the use of hydrogen peroxide therapeutically has generated great controversy in alternative medicine , this ubiquitous molecule is not just one of the many components that help regulate the amount of oxygen that reaches cells, but its presence is vital for a variety of other functions of the body. Many positive effects of hydrogen peroxide on the immune system response have been described, including the stimulation of monocytes and T-helper cells which help fight infections, the increased production of interferon-gamma, which has a role in immunoregulation, and the effect of decreasing the activity of B cells, which have a role in up-regulating the inflammatory response .
Known in medical terms as oxidative therapy or bio-oxidative therapy, hydrogen peroxide is a simple, well-studied, and useful molecule for a range of medical and sanitary applications. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) contains one more atom of oxygen than water (H2O) and is naturally produced in the human organism as a by-product of oxygen metabolism. It is metabolized by enzymes known as peroxidases and catalases, which decompose low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide into water and a free oxygen ion. “Hydrogen peroxide appears to be a ubiquitous molecule. We exhale it, excrete it and take it in from diet” . It is produced endogenously for many functions of living organisms, and there is an abundance of scientific knowledge on this molecule, with sufficient documentation on its uses for sanitation, sterilization, and, importantly, diverse therapeutic modalities.
Given that the H2O2 molecule decomposes into water (H2O) and oxygen (O−), in appropriate doses, it is relatively safe for animal and human uses, as well as relatively nontoxic. In the late 1980s, Farr reported that hydrogen peroxide offers therapeutic benefits by directly destroying microorganisms through dual oxidative and oxygenating actions, caused by the released oxygen molecules [5, 6]. In more recent times, hydrogen peroxide has been widely hailed for use in the so-called “oxygenation therapy” in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), several types of cancer, heart and blood vessel diseases, immune disorders, infectious or pulmonary diseases, and many other ailments and conditions......
The human body makes hydrogen peroxide in the mitochondria of cells to fight any invading pathogen.
Unfortunately, the level is is too small to stop a viral infection like Covid 19 taking hold and overwhelming the lungs and respiratory system
Using 2% - food grade ONLY - in an ultrasonic nebuliser - 10ml - last thing before bed EVERY night will kill ALL viral particles in the entire respiratory tract.
Most importantly it penetrates the alveoli where oxygen/CO2 exchange takes place.
In addition to killing all the covid particles the H2O2 stimulates the immune system to generate large quantities of T cells and other neutrophils that mop up any infected tissue to prevent covid replication.
I have been using this every day since the January 2020 pandemic broke because I knew what was coming from my researches into SARS-1 and MERS.
2% H2O2 is totally safe but if you are concerned even 1 or 1.5% will work but inhalation needs to be longer. With 2% it only needs about 8 minutes inhalation.
Under NO circumstances use commercial grade H2O2 as it has undeclared toxic stabilizers mixed in to maintain long term warehouse storage.
Food Grade is very unstable and needs to be kept in small PET bottles with no air headspace. Not a problem as lots of small bottles are PET and PET stops air and oxygen reaching the H2O2 to degrade it.
I have been tested 5 times for Covid and come up negative BUT have tested with high antibody count.
This means that although I have stopped any dangerous infection taking hold I have indeed inhaled the virus and my immune system was able to produce antibodies in response to the presence of covid virus before I killed it every day.
Has anyone who has had Covid and asthma done the hydrogen peroxide/iodine nebulizer? Can you tell me the dosage and did it help with your breathing? Need help
Is there any risk from using H2O2 in the ears too frequently? I have lingering symptoms from Covid-19 and when I use H2O2 in my ears it literally heats up it foams so much.
One Day Cure for Covid
Must be done when symptoms first occur.
Dilute the normal 3% solution of Hydrogen Peroxide with 9 parts water in a nasal sprayer.
Sniff a stream of the solution (not a mist, must be a short squirt) up each nostril, wait 30 seconds then blow your nose. Do NOT do this excessively, it does kill good and bad cells. I did this 6 times the first day. The second day I felt fine, but, I did the treatment 3 more times. On the third day I felt better than fine, I felt great!
(Note: several treatments may cause some blood speckles when blowing your nose. If so, STOP! I got some blood speckles which was not any problem, and no pain. I just waited 2-3 hours before the next treatment)
I am NOT a Doctor of any kind.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Now, 3 months later, and have felt great SINCE DAY#2, zero symptoms, zero side effects, zero vaccine.
At 70 years of age, this treatment worked quite well for me!
Have a Nice Day.
THIS should go viral! 🤣
Had tightness in left lung after Covid. Instead of using foil or tray, I used a gallon ziplock bag, then put washcloth inside, soaked with 3% H2O2. I put my feet inside 10 min. Felt significant relief in a few hours.
HI U OLE PATOOTS,,,,, ORH here and my posts are hard to come by these days. Persona non grata, I guess. My two integrative doctors have both experienced the Vax shedding thing. Our Knoxville Doc almost died after she treated an MD that had the Vax. She missed 23 days of work. The other is just now coming down and is using homeopathic to address his problem. I just learned that the famous Dr Z has learned that nebulizing HDC will cure Covid in one hour and not 80 hours as oral will. It goes directly into your blood via your lungs and not trough your digestion. I have the pills and the saline solution and will make my own concoction.
Finally years of studying Ch E at Ga Tech is paying off. Yep, I's practicing medicine without a license. So do you when you eat right. We go Monday to get our monthly UBI to avoid the flu shot. All this is on the net and you don't need me to hold your hand.
(TEN MILE , TN)
HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here and got a text from our 50 year old youngest child in Atlanta that she has Covid. We got HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE a year ago for when this happens and overnighted her enough to hopefully get her through. She has a nursing degree from Auburn so why is her old Daddy having to bail her out? She has been in the medical field for some 30 years and is in LaLa land like most of the folks on EC. She was not a Boy Scout and does not know to BE PREPARED. We also have Ivermectin is required. Don't want D to flush this because we are close to when the SHTF. I am prepping like mad because my source says it starts this month and will be bad for some 6 months and last for years. The Afghan thing is just a warm up. We plant our fall and winter garden tomorrow and was going to be a minimum. That has all changed. Pulling my 2006 VW jetta diesel out of storage and tuning up because it gets 50 mpg and I have a 300 gal diesel tank. I will motor for a couple of years when others have no gas. Will save enough hens that we have plenty of eggs. Filling our 300 gal LP tank to generate electricity and diesel tank to last us 2+ years for farm tractor and Jetta. Have super rat traps to kill squirrels and will bait up and harvest a couple of deer from our log cabin bathroom. Have 2 years of firewood split and in the dry. I am lacking a solar generator. Will work on that. Just hope all take this with love....... not fussing, just want to be talking to all of you for many years to come.

Home Recipe for Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) from Grapefruit Peels
By Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum, Founder
Mission Possible World Health Intl
9270 River Club Parkway
Duluth, Georgia 30097
Note – The following is for informational purposes ONLY.
If you are sick, see your doctor. This is one person's opinion and is not suggested as a cure or treatment for anything.
Grapefruit peel tea benefits are quite known for their antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. The peel is known for packing large amounts of antioxidants that may help strengthen the body's resistance to damaging foreign organisms. The grapefruit peel, particularly the white portion under the rind, is said to be very high in antioxidant bioflavoroids that may help strengthen the immune system.
Making a tea of grapefruit peel is great for getting rid of mucus and opening up the lungs. Grapefruit peel tea may help break up mucus, clear the respiratory tract, and may help fight against certain respiratory ailments like pneumonia. Grapefruit peel tea makes quinine and is said to cure covid19.
How to make:
Here is all you need to do, take the rind of 2 – 3 grapefruits, use the peel only and cover it with water about 3 inches above the peels. Put a glass or metal lid on your pot. Let it simmer for about 2 hours. Do NOT take the lid off of the pot til it has cooled completely as this will allow the Quininie and bioflavoroids to escape in the steam.
The taste of the grapefruit peel tea is quite bitter so it is permissible to add some honey to sweeten the taste.
Dosage: Take one tablespoon every few hours to bring out phlegm for the lungs. Do this til you are completely better.
If you take Zinc, it will help to propel the quinine into your cells to speed healing.
Years ago Australians working in Papua New Guinea took daily chloroquine as malaria preventive. Hydroxychloroquine is more recent drug which on March 4th 2020, Australia declared this drug a 'poison'. Prof. Dr Didier Raoult and his team in Marseille France have used this HCQ for respiratory illnesses for decades. Apparently it needs to be used with zinc and probably quercetin to get zinc into the ACE receptors.
Sorry John G., my cousin takes Hydroxychloroquine for Lupus and got covid so...
Well the BS about Hydroxychloroquine is all a fraud. It does work. Get it started early with Zinc and your chances of ending up in hospital are very very slim. The WHO and Lancet and AJM had to retract their comments from 3 weeks ago as studies slammed them.
No money for Pharma so they push all the other crap where they can make Billions including Remdesevir made by Gilead ( Soros and Gates and Fauci ) ...seeing the picture now.
Dr Zalenko in NYC treated over 1500 patients successfully! His study is out this week . Hydroxy is safe and has been in use for 60 years so people, STOP buying into all the Media lies please.
Please read this .....Hydroxy does work. Gets ignored because there is Zero $$ in it

Tilted Hospital Beds Helped To Cut Pneumonia by 60% #coronavirus
Raising the head end of a patients bed will protect them from pneumonia and respiratory and circulatory collapse! Laying a patient horizontally will without doubt, accelerate their demise! 5 degree angle is necessary, additional pillows will help, but not so much as having the bed tilted.
More information https://inclinedbedtherapy.com
"Ask when you can start moving around. Lying flat on your back for a long time can increase your risk of developing pneumonia. So find out when it's safe for you to start sitting up and walking around.?" When you realise that sleeping flat might not be a smart move?
Surely this is self evident and flat bedrest should be avoided like the virus itself?
An innovative method for preventing pneumonia in patients has been recognised at a national awards ceremony
Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust won Patient Safety prize at the Health Service Journal Awards, held at Grosvenor House Hotel in London on November 15, in recognition of its campaign to ensure all patients have their beds tilted by 30 degrees.
In October 2010, the patient safety team implemented the scheme across eight wards to see if it would reduce the number of patients who developed the illness during a hospital stay.
Staff found a reduction of up to 60 per cent in cases of pneumonia in those wards over a six-month period and beds are now tilted by 30 degrees across the whole of the hospital. Raising the patient's head slightly means any fluid in their lungs collects at the bottom rather than covering the whole lung.
Head of patient safety Hester Wain said: “We started doing work around it in October 2010 and, first of all, we were looking at how many people were having pneumonia in hospital.

Many of the victims of COVID19 are people with compromised breathing. Something that may help is intermittent fasting. A study of asthma sufferers who tried an intermittent fasting protocol showed dramatic improvement across the board. This is mentioned in James B. Johnson's book about intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting has many varieties, all involving either a few days of semi-fasting per week, or an interval each day of fasting, equivalent roughly to skipping a meal. The positive effects include lowering inflammation, overcoming diabetes, vastly improving hypertension, etc. etc. There are numerous books available about it, such as "Delay, Don't Deny" by Gin Stephens, and "The Fast Diet" by Mosley and Spencer. In this time of scrutinizing what it is that causes vulnerability to disease, I believe intermittent fasting will be revealed to be a key to health, and not just a means of losing weight, although of course that alone is a key to health.
