My husband's aunt and I got COVID-19 at the same time after getting together for lunch. We both had a general ill feeling and loose stools for 3 days. Last Sunday, I had difficulty breathing. I thought I was going to have to go to the ER.
I mixed low sodium V8 Juice (the low sodium is high in potassium and chloride) with juice from a lemon & lime and horseradish and celery seed and Worcestershire Sauce which contains vinegar, molasses, onions, cloves, garlic and chili pepper extract. I alternated that with 8 ounces of hot water mixed with 1/4 teaspoon iodized salt.
I also ate small pieces of raw garlic. I also took a nasal spray that contains sodium chloride. I rinsed my mouth with hydrogen peroxide mixed with water in a 50-50 combination per bottle instructions. I rubbed hydrogen peroxide on my face and hands. I don't have food grade hydrogen peroxide. After an hour my severe symptoms subsided. I continued to take small bites of the raw garlic every couple of hours and took sips of the salt water the rest of the day. I also ate pineapple which is high in enzymes and had chicken soup made with brown rice, salt and chicken bone broth. The bones had been simmered in water with a dash of vinegar for 6 hours.
I relayed this information to my husband's aunt. I was able to perform day to day duties on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. My only subsequent symptoms are a sporadic cough. My husband's aunt was in the hospital on Tuesday. On Tuesday afternoon the hospital discharged her. She was not allowed to eat or drink anything while in the hospital because they were running tests. The hospital confirmed she has COVID-19. The only treatment she got before leaving the hospital was a shot containing anti-coagulant medicine. Yesterday my husband's aunt had a severe sore throat and was laid up in bed. Her husband was fielding phone calls to let her rest.
Recent evidence in COVID-19 biology indicates there is significant reproduction of the virus in the nose and throat during the first five days of symptoms.
I have a glass of orange juice in the morning as part of my daily routine for Vitamin C, calcium and vitamin D. I take a vitamin D supplement and calcium carbonate supplement for my osteopenia. I take a pre-natal vitamin for vitamins and minerals and extra methylfolate. I am 60 years old. Going forward while the pandemic rages on I am going to switch back to white towels and white sheets washed in detergent and a small amount of bleach since bleach kills COVID-19 in 5 minutes. I bought a mold and mildew cleaner for the bathroom that contains sodium hypochlorite. I am washing my masks every 3 days. I am going to keep hydrated with spring water. I use iodized salt and sea salt while cooking. I have wild oregano herbs and oil of wild oregano in my arsenal if needed.
According to Doug Kaufmann from Know the Cause, chlorophyll in greens (spinach, broccoli, romaine lettuce, kale, etc.) is one of nature's great “detoxifiers”, anti-fungals and anti-mycotics. Fiber (eg. vegetables, oatmeal, ground flax seed) binds up toxins and eliminates them from the body.
I am going to try to get 50 grams of protein every day which is the RDA for some-one my height 5'11". I am going to get protein, fats, carbs, fiber, vitamins and minerals from food like salmon, cod, chicken, grass fed beef, chicken liver, turkey, eggs, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, peanut butter, walnuts, spinach, kale, raw almonds, yams, broccoli, beans, carrots, kiwis, oranges, grapefruits, chick peas, parmesan cheese, dried parsley, dried oregano, basil and cilantro. I eat fortified raisin bran cereal with half a sliced banana and 2% milk occasionally. I have a cappuccino every morning with 1/2 cup milk blended on high in the blender for 10 seconds and then heated with a tablespoon of coffee. I am going to look into the food grade hydrogen peroxide.
I don't know what the outcome will be for my husband's aunt. She is ten years older than me and is suffering greatly. She is limited to what she can take because of severe acid reflex. I have a 77 year old friend that had COVID-19 in February. He was in and out of the hospital over the course of 14 days. He received oxygen and a blood transfusion and a strong antibiotic while in the hospital and went home with an oxygen tank. It took him several months to recover. He uses a vaporizer with mineral salts every day.
Thank you Earth Clinic for getting vital information out to those struggling with disease. Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season!
Ivermectin destroys 98%of Covid 19 in 48 hrs.
My name is Randell Stroud. I have studied Alternative medicine and herbolgy for years. Since we are in flu, cold and Covid season, here is my protocol to prevent against and fight virus infections. I personally CURED my Corona virus infection in 6 days following this method.
1. Sleep- get 7-9 hours a day. Sleep is when your body repairs itself. Sleep is critical for restoration.
2. Water- drink a minimum of 1.5 liters of clean water or healthy freshly juiced beverages. Our bodies are mostly made up of water. We lose 2 cups of water a day just by breathing! Avoid caffeine while sick or anything that dehydrates.
3. Vitamin D3 - getting 30 minutes of sun contact a day will give you enough vitamin D. This vitamin is actually a hormone which regulates nearly every function in your body including your immune system. If you are darker skinned or stay inside alot, you need to supplement with at least 1000 IU per day. (5000 IU if you're deficient or fighting a cold. Get a blood test to check your level.)
4. Emergen C: if you hate taking nasty multivitamins, this product is great at ensuring you get your daily supply of essential minerals and Vitamins to support a strong immune system and repair damaged tissue. (Take 2times per day if sick)
5. Panax Korean Ginseng: An herb used in traditional Asian medicine for thousands of years, this herb energizes your system, helps regulate insulin and blood sugar, increases circulation, builds immunity and has a mild anti-viral compound as well as a mild stimulant effect. (Dont take at bedtime). 500 to 1000 mg per day should suffice. Take with food
6. Exercise- exercising atleast 3 days a week for an hour with cardio and weight training will boost immunity, lower depression, and build a stronger skeleton.
7. Garlic- putting a few cloves of fresh crushed garlic in a warm soup is a great idea. In fact, eating one clove or two of freshly crushed garlic mixed with honey per day, is a guaranteed way to lower cholesterol, kill viruses, bacteria, and cleanse your body. Garlic may stink, but the health benefits are so good!
8. Yogi Detox tea: this tea is great to drink while sick. It contains many herbs like mullein and Burdock, which break down mucus and have slight anti-viral compounds. Look for blends that contain milk thistle as well. This herb is great for the liver! The liver is responsible for filtering blood and toxins in our body! This herb is so good, many alcoholics have reversed cirrhosis of the liver conditions by using it.
9. Olive Leaft extract: my all time favorite herb! This herb has been shown to lower cholesterol and prevent alzheimers. Like ginseng, it is also great for type 2 diabetes sufferers. Olive leaf is also a POWERFUL anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial agent. Some users have reported a remission in herpes and HIV after taking this herb in therapeutic doses. I personally saw an abscess be cured from olive leaf alone. Taking 1000mg per day, or more while sick, should suffice for most. Take with food such as buttered toast. Fat content helps to transfer nutrients.
10. Prayer/religion: Those who engage in prayer, meditation, and belong to a religious community tend to live longer and have lowered stress levels. Stress saps immunity! Prayer and meditation will lower your stress hormones allowing you to sleep deeper and reduce inflammation. Being a part of a community helps combat loneliness and depression as well.
Note: Be sure to introduce herbs one at a time and evaluate yourself every few days. Watch out for any adverse reactions. Research dosages according to individual needs. Cycle on for 6 weeks and take 2 weeks off all herbs to avoid any overdosing and to prevent tolerance to herbs. Avoid smoking cigarettes and limit alcohol and fast food consumption. Check with your doctor or research any interactions with prescribed medications) you can experiment with dosage depending on body weight and tolerance. I weigh 175lbs. If you're bigger, or smaller, you may need more or less.
Hope this helps. Pass it along and share for those who need stronger immune systems more than ever now!
Covid comment, no opinion:
I was at the dr yesterday for a covid test (to calm daughter for Christmas gathering) and overheard the pharma rep talking to the doc. He said they did a study of Ivermectin in covid patients. 200 hospitalized patients in each category, mild/moderate/severe Covid. 100 in each group got ivermectin, the others placebo.
Of those receiving ivermectin, 1 in the severe group got worse, 2 in the severe group showed no change, ALL the rest showed dramatic improvement. Just another nugget of info for you to consider. Also, I asked the doc about people who come back to work after quarantining with covid. He said, yes, they will shed dead virus that can infect you and, yes, you can get it through your eyes (any moist membrane). So, bear that in mind, too.
Coronavirus enters our body mostly through our nose and mouth and majority of coronavirus reside mostly in the airways of our breathing system. Extra alkalization of airways in our breathing system is a good idea. When infected, it may be a good idea to alkalize the entire body and do extra alkalization of the airways in our breathing system. If a person has ulcer, that person cannot take lemon water or lemon juice. Then the person can take other methods to alkalize the body. I agree with you there are many ways to alkalize the body.
Thank you so much for your prompt response!
All the best!
Hi Selena -
My bottle of N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) states to take it with a meal that contains protein.
The brand is AOR and each capsule is 500 mg. I take one with my evening meal (which always has protein in it). I also take it with Vitamin C (heard that Vitamin C enhances the effect).
I found this article online. I actually didn't know how many benefits there are to taking NAC. I'm using it as part of my Covid-19 arsenal.
How to take NAC ( N Acetyl Cysteine) - with food or away from food?
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
Great but insufficient. Why would you merely gargle with baking soda? No, drink it. Every time I get a virus, I take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in water 6 x on the first day. On the second and third days, I take 4x and 2x half a teaspoon in water. I never get sick. This isn't dangerous. Your own body produces sodium bicarbonate. This recipe to fight the cold or flu used to be in the Physician's desk reference book published by Merck from what I read. So yeah, the fastest way to alkalize your body is simply by following the above recipe. Good luck all!
Hydrogen Peroxide in Ears
I used to leave peroxide in my ears for 30 mins, which I think may be too long. Now I leave it in for 15-20 mins at a time, usually once a day or so. It works as I always feel better afterwards. Thanks
Hi Patty L.
Regarding "Garlic, " I think I'll eat it. For quick relief from a sore throat I usually rub a little Lugol's Iodine on my throat; however this time I forgot about the Lugol's. I felt a sore throat come on, I remembered that my daughter bought some fresh garlic. I threw together the cough recipe that includes water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, turmeric and honey in it. I put it on the stove and heated and cut it off before the boil. I bottled the drink. I took some about 2 pieces of the left over warmed garlic from the pot and before I knew it my sore throat was gone and did not return. When I rub on the iodine, I some times have to put more on the next day.
Lugol's Nasal Rinse
My question is for Bill or Art. I prepared the nasal drops with lugol iodine as suggested by Bill and use it regularly when I go out. My observation is that as soon as I put one dropper of the liquid in to my nostril, it goes straight in to my throat and is swallowed, so does happen in an other nostril also.
My question is that in this case, does it still take care of the sinuses against the covid19 virus in the sinus area, and hope the swallowed liquid does no harm.
Hydrogen Peroxide in Ears
If it hurts, you should stop doing it for a week and let your ears recover. You may have a lot of ear wax buildup after getting sick. That is what typically heats up the ears when you add peroxide. Keep adding small amounts of peroxide until the fizzing stops is the rule and shake your head to the side vigorously afterwards to clear the peroxide.
Hydrogen Peroxide in Ears
In the 60's at a YMCA Camp for girls, we swam in a river and when we finished the counselors always put a solution of 1/2 alcohol & 1/2 H2O2 in our ears. We rolled our heads immediately and emptied them and it seemed to work at camp. I have done it for many years and used it for anything ear related. I usually lie down and hold the solution in for 5-10 minutes. It does bubble up, no problem though.
Hydrogen Peroxide in Ears
That's interesting. Are you putting it in your ears, letting it drain out, and repeating until it stops foaming in a single session? Or are you just putting it in once?
Hydrogen Peroxide in Ears
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.
Some people are sensitive to NAC, and it will raise the blood pressure in their lungs, make them feel breathless and raise their heart rate. So if you're taking NAC and experience shortness of breath and pounding heartbeat, it's the NAC.
I am very allergic to NAC. I also started taking niacinamide (250mg) and had the same symptoms. After doing some research online, I found that niacinamide is the precursor to NAC. So I stopped taking the niacinamide.
Recently I was reading about role of NAC as a mucolytic agent for cough & cold, and learned that:
- NAC is also a good antioxidant,
- that it can prevent cytokine storm & inflammation,
- additionally, it also can break down the clots or prevent them from forming which is the biggest danger of covid19.
- NAC replenishes glutathione stores and helps reduce the viral load.
- high dose IV NAC is also reported to have had good results for seriously ill patients.
so I feel, NAC must be included as standard of care for covid patients along with vit c, d3, zinc & b complex supplements etc.
PREVENTION FOR COVID-19 USING BAKING SODA AND COCONUT OIL.
Coronavirus is very sensitive to pH value and temperature of its surrounding. According to an article titled “Conformational change of the Coronavirus Peplomer Glycoprotein at pH 8.0 and 37 degree centigrade”, coronavirus multiplication stops if the pH value is more than 6.0 and if the pH value is 7.0 or more, the count of coranavirus will come down continuously. But if the pH value is 8.0 or more very briefly, coronavirus will not survive. But if the pH value is 5.0 or less, coronavirus will multiply very fast. People with Covid-19 will have most of coronavirus in their air pathway of breathing system. Also, coronavirus normally enter the body through nose and mouth. If one keeps the air pathway alkaline, chances of becoming Covid-19 is very low.
Prevention can be done as follows: Mix one teaspoon of coconut oil with one fourth teaspoon of baking soda thoroughly. Then take one half of this mixture and apply inside the nose using Q-tips. Mix the remaining mixture with one half cup of warm water and gargle it. This can be done for about 2 to 3 times in a day.
If one has mild to moderate Covid-19, it can be treated as follows: First treat with baking soda and coconut oil as explained for prevention. This will target coronavirus in the air pathways of breathing system. The following two steps can be followed:
1) Alkalize the body. There are many different ways to alkalize the body. One can choose any one of them. But lemon is a natural substance that can alkalize the body very quickly. One can take warm lemon water. The quantity of alkalizing substance taken is adjusted so that the morning urine pH is in the range of 7.0 and 7.5.
2) Consume antivirals so that the residual coronavirus is eliminated. Antivirals can be any one of the following: Aspirin, Zinc, garlic, mustard oil, antiviral herbals, etc. Antivirals will not work efficiently if the coronavirus multiplication is not stopped. So, the pH value of its environment should be more than 6.0.
I totally recommend blackseed oil for corona virus. It's my cure all savior. I ingest a teaspoon of the oil with turmeric tea and lime juice, first thing in the morning, half an hour before breakfast, and it does wonders. I've been doing this for almost 6 years and have not got a cold or flu since.
Several of my family members have been cured from covid19 using this magical oil.
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 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.
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
I do not suggest nebulizing coconut oil! My Covid symptoms lasted 7 months. You can use this as a preventative and for symptoms. Ayr salt nasal solution, add two drops of lugols Iodine. No drugstore iodine. You can't combine coconut oil, salt water and iodine. When you combine oils with liquids you need a preservative. Stick to salt nasal solution and lugols only. I also took NAC, used a steam of glutathione and one drop of eucalyptus, Elecampagne, herb pharm antiviral, quercitin and bromeliad, high dose c and d with k. I developed an allergy to dairy and had to quit it due to Covid. I also coughed for seven months. I did use mucinex twice, I had a severe amount of liquid phlegm in my lungs. The mucinex helped but it was a miserable experience coughing up stuff for 45 minute at a go. I'm better now, but do feel wheezy on humid days.
Sanitize Your Clothes
Put a half to 3/4 cup of no name Listerine in every wash and you will never have mold.
Sanitize Your Clothes
PS This may be most important of all: I leave the lid open between washings so it dries out inside. No mold.
Sanitize Your Clothes
I have a top-loading HE washer and add half a cup of borax powder to each load. No odor, clean clothes, just fine. I use a commercial liquid detergent that is free of perfumes/dyes, and I use about half what it says on the bottle (a tip from the man who delivered/installed the washer.)
Sanitize Your Clothes
Cindy, you are so right. I noticed right away that my whites were dingy, even after bleach and oxyclean. I got a top loader but the 'normal' setting also uses too little water. To sanitize, I add vinegar to the final rinse. A hot dryer would also kill germs, but I hang my clothes out in the sunshine as often as possible.
Sanitize Your Clothes
I doubt there are many here who don't use vinegar instead of softener. but vinegar is NOT an effective disinfectant. The odor you get from an HE washing machine is BIOLOGICAL. It's not toxins or chemicals. It's living, multiplying microorganisms that aren't even being flushed through the tubing of your washer, let alone from your clothes. Clothing that goes everywhere you go. Clothing that traps and hangs onto microorganisms. Clothing that absorbs and carries around the microorganism's best friend - moisture - sheds microscopic bits of whatever it's carrying every time you move and makes washing your hands look like trying to kill a rhino with a bb gun. You wear those fibers on your skin, wash your dishes with them, wrap your children in them, sleep in, on and surrounded by them. Viruses are tough. If they can't run around free and multiplying - as in when you are shooting bb's at them - they simply lock themselves up in their very own little bunkers until it's safe to come out. Whether they're in you, in your clothes or in the sewer system and water supply. If you don't crack the shell, they live on to come at you another day. Covid is easy to kill. Nearly all of the methods that are listed on this site will work on it if you add a little something to crack its shell but that won't keep your government from using it to scare your neighbors into voting to let it do something profoundly stupid - something that will endanger you and your family while paving a road so that the politician's friends and family can make lots of money - so take care of yourself..
Sanitize Your Clothes
I absolutely agree with you about HE washing machines. I've had two and felt that I could never get clothes truly clean. I think old style top loading machines are the best at getting things clean, which is what I have now.
How about adding some distilled vinegar to each wash?
Sanitize Your Clothes
Smelly New Style Washing Machines Could Be Responsible For Reinfection And The Continued Spread of Coronavirus
I just want to post something that may be relevant to a lot of people.
I suspect that some reinfection and spreading of the virus is being caused by HE (High Efficiency) washing machines. I've known they were garbage for several years but the danger of their profound shortcomings never occurred to me until now.
First of all, the HE front loaders of today don't even come close to matching the efficiency of the old front loaders - I.e. the ones with the "submarine" doors that you had to push and lock so they wouldn't leak. Those old washers cleaned extremely effectively in even less water than the new HE washers use and the reason is that they used enough water to get the job done and didn't require multiple rinse cycles, as the new ones do.
First, if you have an HE machine that you have to CLEAN, due to ODOR, you MUST understand that the odor is filth and it's not just in your washing machine. It's also on your clothes. The new machines don't even use enough water to clean themSELVES - meaning there is NO way they are cleaning your clothes.
I washed a pair of yoga pants by hand. They didn't stink but other stuff was beginning to and, since they're workout pants, I assumed they were also dirty from not getting washed properly and didn't stink due to Nike's antimicrobial fabric.
To make a long story short, with soaking and washing with a plunger/"breather" style agitator, MANY times, it took nearly 4 hours to get to a point the rinse water was clear and I SUSPECT the only reason it only took 4 full on, sweating agitating washes was because I got so frustrated that I finally used non-toxic enzyme powder - as one would use to clear one's drains - and let them soak for an hour. It took 5 rinses with another castile soap wash in the middle to get it all out but I finally had clear water and a fresh laundry aroma, after. They were synthetic fabric so I wasn't concerned about the enzymes eating the fibers but the filth that was embedded in the fabric was horrific after something like 10 washes in the washer and two "washer cleaner" applications.
I don't know what to say about what one can do about the problem. I don't have tons of clothes but, even so, it would take me a a couple of 40 hour weeks to get them all clean. Even if you were to disinfect your clothes, as with ozone, UV light or even ClO2, you'd just be disinfecting the filth that's still in your clothes. The exact same filth that makes your washer stink.
Tyler, can you upload your videos somewher else. Yotube has taken them down and all. Thank you. By the way for cost effective savings can we instead spray the VCO into the nostril and sniff them all the way up thru the sinuses. What do you think of combining VCO and sea salt solution and betadine at 1% . Can you suggest the proportion of each please. Thank you and for posting. Keep safe
Costus Root Powder
I didn't use it I just translated message from Arabic Facebook group, the message didn't mention the dosage. I now make search for you on other Arabic sites and found the dosage for adult is 1/2 teaspoon Indian Costus with 1 tablespoon honey at night and don't eat any thing after it.
Costus Root Powder
How do u take costus root powder for covid 19?
See https://jimhumble.co/. Look for MMS or water purification on ebay.com, 22.5% sodium chlorite and a 4% HCl acid activator, typically sold in 4 oz. bottles of each.
Hydroxy does work but the company that makes Remdesivir was able to get the studies manipulated in a way that would fail. Fauci is invested in remdesivir and is against the use of hydroxy and is promoting remdesivir. He is the head of NIH and they just came out about 2 days ago and said these treatments should not be used on people who are not in the hospital. Hydroxy should be used in the early stages before you need to be in the hospital. Remdesivir studies were over seen by the maker Gilead. It is actually dangerous but the studies said the opposite.
Quercetin is reported to act just like Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) when used with zinc. The Quercetin opens the zinc channels in the cells and allows the antiviral zinc to enter and stop viral replication.
At least 2,000 iu of vitamin D is absolutely necessary to keep the immune system up.
Monolaurin along with Chaga Mushroom (wild harvested) along with Quercetin, zinc and N.A.C. are being anecdotally reported to be a good combination for fighting the actual Covid 19 infection.
LUANN, ORH here, you are wise to do iodine regardless of Covid. My morning ritual is 1/3 glass of water, tbsp lemon juice, 2 tbsp ACV, 1/4 tsp baking soda and 5 drops of Lugol's iodine. Got electrical heart issues, but still above ground.
They say people can get reinfected, which suggests it *could* be something other than a virus.
If it were something like acute fluoride poisoning, or some other toxin like radioactive nuclear disaster fallout, that could explain why iodine remedied it so quickly.
Just a thought.
I'm curious where all the people in New York went after we sent all that money to save their hospitals. Are they dead? Were they all illegals? Where did they go?!
My husband and I both came down with the Covid-19 symptoms and after a few days I knew we had it. So I did some research on Lugol's Iodine 5% solution and this is what we did.
We both used 6 drops of this type of Lugol's liquid solution in our morning cup of coffee, then put 6 more drops into a glass of water, was just plain well water from our faucet and we drank this twice again during the day...so was a total of 6 drops in coffee or water 3 times a day.
The coughing stopped on for both of us within an hour or so of taking the drink and by the fourth day the coughing hadn't came back, as well as the headache and body aches, fever, chills, just feeling totally rott'in and we felt completely well.
We didn't stop taking this for fear the virus would come back on us so we took this amount daily for a couple of weeks more. And we had no reaction from this amount of Lugol's iodine other than it killed the virus for us quickly and easily and we had no ill side effects from using it. I am not telling you to do this but just relaying my experience with using the iodine.
By the way, I'm 67 yrs old and my husband is almost 70. I read up on using this Lugol's Iodine 5% solution and many years ago this was the preferred method of healing as it kills better than any antibiotic. It said it was used for and kills viruses, bacteria, parasites and they have been researching it and say it's being used for cancers. So do your own research on it and don't believe all of those nay sayers, I didn't and I'm so glad that I used it. To each his own I guess.
You're right about searching for Lianhua Qingwen(LQ) capsules on Amazon. I couldn't find it on Amazon. This really doesn't surprise me since Jeff Bezos is known to support all the China-hate going around these days. I guess he thinks that Lianhua Qingwen capsules are a huge security risk for the US. Well go figure...
I've just searched for Lianhua Qingwen capsules on ebay and found it without any problems.
By the way, I forgot to mention that if you do buy Lianhua Qingwen capsules then please make sure it is "YILING" brand(full name of manufacturer: Shijiazhuang Yiling) which is the brand being used for covid-19 patients in all the Chinese hospitals.
I just went on Amazon to search for Lianhua Qingwen.
Oddly, they show multiple listings for it, but when I click on any of those listings, the pages the links take me to have nothing like it on the page, very strange. I will have to look elsewhere, possibly on ebay. I am not aware of a TCM practitioner in my area as that might have been an option. Thank you for the new information, Bill!
Once again you have cut right through the noise and honed in on many of the problems associated with the folly of a vaccine for Covid-19!
I said it before and will say it again, EC has more rational remedies for Covid-19 than all of the scientists have been able to put together! They limit themselves to mainly existing drugs with little if any thought to things like coconut oil or melatonin. Sometimes simple just works! Counting on a vaccine for a coronavirus seems highly unlikely since a vaccine for any coronavirus has never been able to be developed to date and rushing it to market is just begging for problems! How is the impossible suddenly possible? I am not going to be rushing out to try any Covid-19 vaccine myself.
Regarding what will happen if vaccines fail, the smart people will come to EC and find some good remedies while the uninformed will complain and go crazy and do who knows what. Ignoring the chances for vaccine failure or serious side effects seems mighty foolish to me, especially when they are trying to do it in 1/4th the time required for other vaccines.
I forgot to mention that I have also stocked up on melatonin as one of my backups. I will only use the melatonin(and aspirin/BHT) if and when either me or my wife become infected with covid-19.
Another useful treatment for covid-19 is a well known Chinese herbal remedy called Lianhua Qingwen(capsules) which is quite cheap to buy. I can buy it for pennies in the Philippines. This herbal mix is quite a strong remedy used for actually getting rid of fever and killing off the covid-19 virus. It contains strong antipyretics and antivirals such as Isatis root, Ephedra and Liqorice root. There are 13 herbal ingredients in Linhua Qingwen. All the hospitals in China have been successfully using this remedy for just the initial mild stages of the covid-19 infection -- it relieves fever, cough and fatigue. This remedy also seems to greatly accelerate the recovery time.
The Chinese TCM doctors also have several other herbal formulas for different stages or different problems that can arise during covid-19 infection -- one of which is called Huashi Baidu formula which was actually designed by the academic TCM team that originally went to Wuhan to battle covid-19. Believe it or not, I think that this formula is actually based on the 2000-year-old White Tiger remedy which is quite famous in China. This formula is also a strong remedy that can be used for any stage of covid-19 infection.
Just making the point that, right now, China does certainly have sophisticated and successful herbal formulas that can certainly stop/cure the covid-19 virus whereas the US and the West are still fumbling around with their vaccines that, IMHO, are all destined to fail.
Well said, you are right for sure. Yes, they have been carrying out research on melatonin and coconut oil in the Philippines. Some more information for you. You already know that my greatest fear is that the vaccines won't work to stop covid-19. Well, in March this year, there was some research in Iceland. They took swabs from 640 infected people and discovered 140 covid-19 mutations. More recently the WHO did some research where they tested 60,000 infected people and found that 20,000 covid-19 samples were mutations/new strains. More recently in the Philippines, Thai/Filipino researchers have been investigating new covid-19 viral strains and they have found 23 significant new strains or mutations of covid-19 in the Philippines alone.
Now please remember that all the current vaccines being developed -- which were started about 7 months ago -- have been developed using the OLD strain of covid-19. So those vaccines will be ineffective and useless against any significant new mutation of the covid-19 virus.
I've also read that two people in China have been re-infected with covid-19. One of these patients caught covid-19 in March this year and recovered. He then went to Europe and returned to China and when he was tested on his return he was re-infected with a new strain of covid-19.Will that new strain be in the vaccines? Also add to this -- please see my other post -- even Dr Fauci says that the best you can possibly hope for with the covid-19 vaccine is only a 50% protection rate(where only 50 people out of 100 people taking the vaccine actually achieve immunity) and you have a truly hopeless situation where you cannot ever get rid of the virus completely.
My greatest nightmare and worst fear is what will happen if all the covid-19 vaccines fail and the citizens in the US and the West suddenly come to realize that modern medicine's vaccine strategy has completely failed them against the covid-19 virus offering them no further hope of a cure??
And please don't forget that throughout all the 150 years of modern medicine's existence, allopathic medicine has never ever found a successful and consistent therapeutic treatment -- with a 98% cure rate -- for ANY viral disease.
We've already had riots all over the US for this that and the other. So what do you think is going to happen in the West if those vaccines fail and all the citizens suddenly realize that they have no real hope against covid-19?? How will those citizens react? Will they be angry? Who will they blame? And what do you think they will they do?
A couple of people that I know have had Covid. My sister's friend felt that Manuka Honey is what helped her the most. She was taking 1/4 t. 4 times a day of very high quality Manuka honey. I did share with her about high dose melatonin but I am not sure if she used it.
I knew someone else that healed up quickly with the use the high dose melatonin, quercetin, vitamin C, zinc and magnesium.
My chiropractor is taking quercetin prophylactically for its antiviral properties.
~Mama to Many~
In a sense, the PI seems more progressive in terms of willingness to try natural for Covid-19. In Manila, they are currently testing coconut oil in a Covid-19 trial and they are testing melatonin similarly. In the case of melatonin, they are testing it in 300 Covid-19 patients who also have Covid-19 pneumonia.
Here in the US, there are no such trials for natural substances. There are a couple of trials forming for melatonin, but nothing that I am aware of for coconut oil even though the effects of coconut oil constituents are scientifically well established, but mention of VCO here is almost nil.
As some might know, I'm over 70 yo and I currently take high dose niacinamide twice a day at 500 mgs directly after meals. Why? Because it's one of my prime preventions/protections against Covid-19.
According to recent research from Arkansas Uni., if you take higher dose niacin or niacinamide every day, this will increase the strength of your immune system defense against all pathogens -- including viruses -- by 1000 times. That means that my own immune system is now at least on a par with any youngsters' immune system now.
I also use a teaspoon of turmeric + pepper + a tablespoon of coconut oil mixed together. I take this once or twice a day dissolved in my coffee and it isn't really any hardship at all. This is all about using a common-sense approach for anti-viral prevention.
I might've mentioned this before but I'm going to tell it again anyway.
3 or 4 months ago and over the mountains from where I live in the Cebu provinces, the prisoners in the Cebu city prisons were dying like flies from Covid-19 -- hundreds of deaths. It was truly awful. Then they started to feed the prisoners virgin coconut oil (kills the virus) with turmeric (stops inflammation, stops cytokine storms etc causing death) several times a day, every day. Because of that protocol the COVID-19 virus was completely suppressed and eliminated fairly quickly and every prisoner got well with a minimum of deaths.
This news was fully tracked and reported in all the local Cebu papers and on local TV. Now tell me -- raise your hands please -- does anyone out there reading this piece really think that we need a double blind placebo trial, which will probably cost upwards and beyond $200 million and take about six months to a year to complete, to actually prove that the turmeric and coconut oil remedy is completely safe, effective and WORKS WELL against Covid-19?
Now let's turn our attention to the drug cartel's greatest wish -- achieving fabulous wealth through WORLDWIDE VACCINE SALES.
Here is an article from the CDC:
In that article, Dr Fauci even admits that the covid-19 vaccine will probably only be 50% effective. What does that mean? It means that for the 18/65 age group, out of 100 people that receive the COVID-19 vaccine, only 50 people will actually achieve immunity. And if you are 65 or over like me then that also means that only about 30% (30 out of 100 older people) will be able achieve immunity when they take the vaccine. Do those vaccine statistics -- from Dr Fauci -- make you or your family feel warm, cosy and well protected against Covid-19? Well does it??
I also did some digging into the ordinary flu vaccine statistics. What I found was that vaccine statistics vary a heck of alot. For instance when I checked the CDC ordinary flu yearly assessments for 2010 I found that the flu vaccine that year had an effective prevention rate of 60% for the 18/65 age group. But when I checked the 2018 CDC flu assessment the prevention rate was only 29% !! I mean, jeez, if they can't even get the common flu vaccine consistently right then what chance is there for ANY covid-19 vaccine succeeding??
And Dr Fauci also mentioned in that article that they would need a prevention rate of at least 75% to get rid of the covid-19 virus completely. That's another lie. The covid-19 vaccine would have to have at least a 98% prevention rate to stand any chance whatsoever of completely eliminating the covid-19 virus, any fool knows that.
And I haven't even mentioned all the dangerous adjuvants or additives that are so commonly used in vaccines these days -- like thimerosal(50% mercury), formaldehyde, aluminum, msg, antibiotics, polysorbate 80, egg protein, rogue nano-pathogens(like Guillain-Barre virus) etc, etc.
Interesting that you mentioned activated charcoal. Researchers are actually studying it out as a potential treatment for COVID.
Here's a link to that: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0306987720324245
Also, 21% of Covid cases come with a rash.
Below is a story of a medical doctor that got an antibiotic resistant rash after treating his first covid patient. He tried a charcoal poultice as a last resort, and it promptly disappeared.
Vinegar and Honey
Braggs Apple Cider vinegar is what I have been using for many years. It has become quite affordable. Local grocery stores have been caring it for at $5 to $6 a 32z bottle. If you go to the Braggs website they have so much on this amazing product. Hope this helped. Much love and laughter to all who read this :)
In a lot of places, you can't get Hydroxy.
Addendum to my post:
I neglected to add that nicotine in a smoker doesn't appear to travel beyond the upper respiratory system - the airborne virus's entry point. Which would explain why smokers are ONLY 50% less likely to contract Covid-19, which I had, back in July, and had always known I'd ingested as I'd been busy and as "socially distant" as a body can get for almost 3 weeks prior.
I suspect I got it from the lettuce on a sandwich I'd gotten at the "Drive-thru" because I hadn't been to get groceries for almost a month and had finished off the last of the peanut butter the day before - it being the last "food" in the house as I had because I'd been putting off getting groceries because I was busy.
CINDY, ORH here, and impressed with this post and your knowledge of the tobacco herb. I still have the the worthless stock, Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, after my ole Wi boss used their Ky tobacco supplement to treat his arthritis. It worked. It was so good that Big Pharma got after them with both feet. That included sending the Gov of Va and his wife to prison. BIG PHARMA makes the Mofia look like SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS. If you research the net, some will say to hold the worthless stock because the product worked. I know you are a knowledgeable person and hope you will keep posting on tobacco. Finally got back to using hemp, thanks to Trump. Maybe we will get back to tobacco. I loved smoking, but over did it, as all usually do. Camels unfiltered was the creme de la creme.
Nicotine is being investigated for the purpose of using it against Covid-19. The reason is because smokers weren't getting it like non-smokers. In fact, they were shown to be 50% less likely to contract it.
The reason, they suspect, is because of nicotine, which is a micronutrient found in many vegetables and for which the body has an entire system for handling and distributing. The *same* pathways viruses use - but can't, if the receptors contain enough nicotine. Hence, I suspect, the smokers who weren't getting it didn't get it from breathing contaminated air. Which is just one way to get it. I suspect those who DID get it got it from food or skin contact or whatever because the receptors in the airways contained the nicotine but the pathways that would be used via ingestion and/or skin contact did not. In other words, smokers are still susceptible, just not via the singular pathway of the respiratory system.
I'd been looking at tobaccum because it was a very useful herb, prior to its demonization. It's primary use was for skin issues, including warts, moles, psoriasis etc.. Basically, anything having to do with the skin. And it was used by "natives" all over the world, for thousands of years.
SOO, anyway, I've been treating plantar warts on the bottom of my feet for several years now, trying various things, letting them come back and trying something different and so on. As a smoker, I make my own cigarettes so I have tobacco plus I switched to "Vaping" for a short period but it just plain did something horrible regarding dehydration. Dried me out something fierce. So I went back to smoking and I've smoked since I was 10 when I just "started smoking like an old man", my mom said, so that's 50 years but, anyway, given the use of tobaccum as an herb and the plantar warts I was growing back on my feet, I decided to try some old vaping "juice" I had leftover from when I was vaping on the warts.
Let me preface this next part by explaining that vape "juice" was initially available in several "strengths" AND kids were trying to use it to commit suicide but would end up just throwing up and being fine 2 hours after so, it's not deadly. Not by any means, as the amounts of nicotine they were ingesting were phenomenal. Could have probably cleared termites out of several houses as they were drinking it by the bottles which, by comparison, when you vape, you might vape the equivalent of a cigarette to the tune of 3 or 4 DROPS of the stuff. Nowhere NEAR the amount kids were drinking in an effort to kill themselves, so...anyway...
I only used it on my foot once, as it was before I'd learned it wasn't deadly after alll and feared poisoning myself. What happened is very interesting. The amount was probably somewhere around only 3 drops, altogether, but it did the exact same thing vaping did. The glycerin dried me PLUM out. Dry mouth, plain old crackly, dry discomfort and the whole bit but it ALSO - and this is the interesting part - it made me turn my nose up at cigarettes. For a couple of hours. Which I was TOTALLY not expecting. 3 drops? On the bottom of one foot? It was insane.
I probably got some on my hands and whatnot but I was shocked when I realized I was rolling a cigarette but had no desire to smoke it. Which had never happened before except when I was vaping.
They're testing nicotine now, for Covid. They're testing nicotine patches, gum, drops and all of the nicotine replacement products used to stop smoking.
I'd always known that the lung damage caused by smoking was smoke damage but I should have realized that the desire to control tobacco must have meant it had some true usefulness that would bite into the profits of some Fortune 500 vampire - and I was right. Just 2 or 3 weeks ago, there was no information whatsoever available on the internet, other than what was available as books scanned for the archive but today, a lot of old information is floating up to the surface where people can get their hands on it and it's definitely worth checking out.
Nicotine is a nutrient. And man has known this, at least, for as long as he's been naming body parts and it would seem that the only ones getting it - yet not enough - are smokers. It's entirely possible that it's not an addiction but merely a craving for a particular nutrient that is missing from the diet. Much like boron. The body simply needs it.
I'm not saying people should smoke as, apparently, it doesn't get distributed very well when inhaled but it could be added to lotion, soaps, used as a tincture or poultice - it's just a nutrient that happens to come in, among many other veggies, tobacco. Something people want and are more willing to pay for than grow for themselves. It's a profit center..and, apparently, everything the common man has been told about it is a lie. Yes it's poisonous - to BUGS - so is orange peel and a dozen or so other items that might be found in just about anybody's kitchen.
It's worth checking out. Even if only as a killer of viruses which are basically insects, as bacteria are basically plants. Many of the foods we eat are useful as insecticides and/or herbicides.
Over 1800 Belgian doctors and healthcare professionals signed an open letter concerning the detrimental effects of the lockdown. The names of those who signed the open letter are also available online.
It's an interesting read.
Vitamin C, Colloidal Zinc
I am 67 years old, male Caucasian having O+ blood type. 5' 9" tall and slim.
Last March, 2020 I met someone who just came overland from Sicily. After he parted I could feel something running around in my head and felt something unusual in my throat.
Things kept getting worse. Coughing yellow phlegm, loss of smell and taste.
I took Vitamin C, Ascorbic Acid at 3 to 5 grams every 3 hours.
After about 5 days I could hardly breath, coughing day and night.
During this time I was making Distilled Water to make colloidal zinc.
I was taking about 9 grams of Ascorbic Acid every 3 hours and also inhaled Colloidal Zinc often and soon as I began Inhaling C. Z. I knew something got better.
After another week it was all over thanks to vitamin C and the spraying colloidal zinc into my lungs.
I never tested if it was COVID-19 but I believe it was.
Povidone Iodine Nasal Spray
Great info, thank you Rob, very much appreciated.
Povidone Iodine Nasal Spray
3 types of Povidone Iodine that I know of:
“Betadine” Povidone-iodine (OK to Use) Found at Walgreens, CVS
“Generic” Povidone-iodine (OK to Use) This is what I use! Can by found at Family Dollar, Dollar General, Wal-mart, Walgreens, CVS
Povidone-iodine is available as a surgical scrub or skin cleanser with a detergent base (Do NOT Use)
Povidone Iodine Nasal Spray
All 3 clinical studies used Povidone iodine (PVP-I) because it's gentle effect of the mucus membranes. You can try Lugol's but, I think it would burn in your nose "alot". I'm assuming that's why the clinical trails did not chose to use tincture of Iodine for that very reason.
Povidone Iodine Nasal Spray
Can you recommend a good providine iodine?
Povidone Iodine Nasal Spray
Is it okay to use Lugol's iodine instead?
Povidone Iodine Nasal Spray
Povidone Iodine Nasal Spray are now being issued to front-line health care workers and hospital patients for covid19 related illness.
Note from Rob: I am writing and presenting this article to Earthclinic in the hope it will help someone or a family member reading your forum with a compromised immune system. Covid19 seems to be hitting them the hardest. It has become “blasphemy” in America to speak publicly about cures for covid19. I am a herbalist and back in early November 2019, people were coming to me with some screwed up symptoms which I called an SSV (some sorta virus?). I did not know what it was, so I was giving them my Cold and Flu Remedy. If they were able to treat their symptoms fast enough within 48 hours, they were over the flu(?) in about 12 hours.
For every 24hrs over the 48hr mark untreated, you can add another 12hrs to recover. Then in late December, rumors started coming out of China about a virus with the same symptoms I was treating. Huh, imagine that… And as of today 8/2020 it's still knocking it out. What I am trying to say is don't believe everything the media and your politicians are telling you. Here are cures out there, their just too cheap, all natural and big pharma can't make a profit on it.
This treatment is not a cure for Covid19. It is meant to reduce the viral load inside the nasal cavities where the covid19 and other micro-organisms collect and become dangerous. Summit Biosciences, Inc. announced this week it had been awarded a contract from a Seattle-based pharmaceutical company, Atossa Therapeutics, Inc., to fast track the development of a nasal spray to be used on patients who've been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus but who “have not yet exhibited symptoms severe enough to require hospitalization, ”according to the press release.
Lexington KY pharmaceutical company developing nasal spray to treat COVID-19 (Press Release) https://www.kentucky.com/news/coronavirus/article243092566.html
COVID-19 is a viral respiratory disease that often initially settles in the nose — one of the most widely used tests to determine whether a person actively has the new coronavirus is a nasal swab — which is why the company is working to produce a nasal spray. Typically, as the infection becomes more severe, it will move to the lungs, where it can become deadly. The point with this drug is to catch it early enough, before that happens.
In order for the virus' spike proteins to take hold in a person's nasal cavity, certain cells in the mucus must first activate that viral spike protein. This nasal spray would inhibit that activation process, acting as a “barrier inside the nose to prevent virus entry”.
Researchers at the University of Kentucky in three clinical trials to treat symptoms of those who've already tested positive for the virus and help them avoid needing to be hospitalized, and to develop a drug that prevents transmission of the virus. “We are looking for a therapy that prevents people from having to go to the hospital, or if they happen to be in the hospital and are not critically ill, [from] becoming critically ill”.
One of the clinical trials involves testing the efficacy of an iodine nasal spray to protect people who are at especially high risk from contracting the virus, including frontline health care workers.
Summit Bioscience's nasal spray would be targeted toward healthier people who've tested positive but don't have severe symptoms. To be used at home, the nasal spray would work to keep them from developing those symptoms as well as to slow the infection rate, overall, putting their immune system in a better position to fight the virus. The goal is to eventually commercialize therapies for patients “on both ends of the spectrum, ”— those healthier patients well enough to be treated at home, and sicker patients who may require a ventilator.
DIY Povidone-iodine Nasal Spray:
Regularly use 2 – 5 times a daily with a Nasal Spray Irrigator and home-made saline. University of Kentucky Hospital, USA did the study. Study subjects will use betadine saline sinus rinse for period of 7 days.
Povidone iodine is a powerful antiseptic and disinfectant. In contact with skin and mucous membranes povidone iodine works quickly and has a microbicidal effect (causing the death of a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoa).
*30 ml empty nasal spray bottle
*Empty clean water bottle
*Peppermint oil (optional)
1. Add 1 teaspoon sea salt and 1 teaspoon baking soda to empty “clean” 17 oz water bottle.
2. Add distilled water to bottle, cap and shake til salt and baking soda have completely dissolved. This is your saline solution.
3. Add 3ml of Povidone-iodine (you want it strong since Povidone Iodine solution 5% has only 0.5% available iodine) to the empty nasal spray bottle. 2 drops peppermint oil (optional but it is a good anti-inflammatory). Top bottle off with your saline solution.
4. Use this spray twice in each nostrile 2-5 times daily for afew weeks to resolve sinus infections, congestion and polyps.
*Saline Nasal Squeeze Bottle (New with saline water inside purchase from store)
*Child medicine syringe or similar device that measures in milliters
1. Remove nasal tip from Saline Nasal Squeeze Bottle.
2. Estimate how much PVP-I to add to nasal bottle based on how much saline is inside. General formula is 1ml PVP-I to every 10ml saline water.
3. Using the child syringe, remove the same amount saline water as you are going to add in.
4. Re-cap nasal cap to bottle. Shake well and spray up each nostile.
The science behind this:
Povidone-iodine (PVP-I) is a broad-spectrum antiseptic with activity against bacteria, fungi, and viruses. It has been previously used in both intranasal preparations against Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) as well as oral preparations in in-vitro studies of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV), Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV), influenza H1N1, and rotavirus with good efficacy. This study will evaluate the efficacy of PVP-I as prophylaxis in Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID19)-negative for front-line health care workers and hospital patients.
The highest concentration of viral covid-19 particles resides within the nasopharynx. The virus is thought to spread via respiratory droplets with the potential for transmission via inhalation of droplets, contact to the nose and mouth with infected materials, and airborne transmission. Given that frontline workers are involved in high-risk procedures including intubation, bronchoscopy, proning patients (which can lead to droplet production) and in some cases are reusing PPE, finding ways to reduce viral load or viral exposure are paramount.
In this study, front line healthcare workers will be asked to complete a pre-participation survey and screened for COVID positivity. They will then be given premade PVP-I gargles and nasal sprays, as well as a calendar card to mark compliance. PVP-I nasal spray and gargle (10% diluted 1:30) will be used prior to the start of a shift, during "lunch break", and at the end of shift. First, the nasal spray will be sprayed in the nose (2 sprays each nostril). For adequate coverage, the participant should be able to taste the iodine or see it in the back of the throat. This should be left in place for 30 seconds. Then, the participant will gargle the solution for 30 seconds and not have anything to eat or drink by mouth for 30 minutes. Treatment will continue for 3 weeks, or until the healthcare worker presents with COVID symptoms. Participants will then be tested for COVID positivity and asked to fill out a second questionnaire assessing study tolerability. At completion of the study, they will be asked to turn in their calendar card to assess how many applications they were able to complete.
Given the high rate of asymptomatic carriers, a second arm will also be planned for patients who have a 7+ day hospitalization or who are set to undergo a significant surgical procedure. These patients will be offered participation in the study as well and will be given the same questionnaire and undergo preoperative testing if they consent. For patients in the study group, PVIP gargle and nasal sprays will be applied preoperatively or shortly after admission and enrollment in the study for the non-operative group. The patients will then be retested in 2 weeks or as directed by the presentation of symptoms concerning for infection with SARS-CoV-2.
Due to the known breadth of its antiviral activity and similarities in molecular structure, it can be extrapolated that PVP-I should have robust activity against SARS-CoV-2. Eggers et al found that at a concentration of 1% there was a reduction of viral activity of 99.99% in in-vitro assays. At 2 minutes, a concentration of 0.23% was enough to reduce viral loads appreciably (meaning measurable).
There have been significant concerns noted regarding infection of health care workers and subsequent nosocomial spread within hospitals. Data from the epidemic in Wuhan by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention noted that 63% of infected patients in Wuhan were health care workers.1 A study of hospitalized patients at a tertiary care center in Wuhan noted that 12% of patients and 29% of health care professionals had acquired COVID-19 from nosocomial spread. Particular concern has been expressed regarding the safety of otolaryngologists, patients, and staff during routine and endoscopic examination. Reports have demonstrated high viral loads of SARS-CoV-2 in the nasal cavities, nasopharynx, oral cavities, and oropharynx, with the highest viral loads within the nasopharynx. In vitro studies have demonstrated that the tissue of the nose and mouth have high expression of ACE2, the main receptor of COVID-19. Nasal goblet and ciliated cells had the highest expression of ACE2. Due to high viral load, these areas are sensitive for diagnosis of the virus. The transit of virus via coughing, sneezing, and aerosolizing procedures makes transmission high. Aerosols of SARS-CoV-2 have been detected in the air for up to 3 hours. There are concerns that many otolaryngology procedures generate aerosols, which was proven for intranasal high-speed drilling in a cadaveric study.
Transmission reduction by the minimization of aerosolized virus is of key importance. Given that the nasopharynx and oropharynx are principal reservoirs of active SARS-CoV-2 virus, there has been immense desire for an approach to nasal and oral decontamination in the era of COVID-19. Povidone-iodine (PVP-I) has been suggested as a topical solution. PVP-I works by releasing free iodine, which disrupts microbial metabolic pathways, destabilizes structural components of cell membranes, and leads to irreversible damage to pathogens. It is a potent virucidal via inhibition of N1, N2, and N3 neuraminidase as well as inhibition of hemagglutinin. This inhibition blocks viral attachment to cellular receptors and inhibits viral release and spread from infected cells.
Protocols have been recommended regarding nasal and oral use of PVP-I in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, and there has been much discussion regarding the implementation of these practices. A protocol was developed in the United Kingdom recommending 0.3 mL of 0.5% PVP-I solution via each nostril and 9 mL via the oral cavity in conscious COVID-19 patients and persons under investigation (PUIs) prior to undergoing procedures in and around the mouth, as well as in health care workers performing these procedures. In unconscious patients, they recommended applying 2 mL to the mucosal surfaces of the oral cavity. Use was recommended every 2 to 3 hours in health care workers exposed to these patients up to 4 times per day. Another protocol from Pittsburgh recommended 240 mL of 0.4% PVP-I in the nasal cavity via sinus rinse delivery bottle and 10 mL of 0.5% PVP-I oral wash every 2 to 3 hours up to 4 times per day in patients with COVID-19, PUIs, prior to high-risk procedures, and in COVID-19 hotspots. They recommended this procedure in health care workers prior to and after care of COVID patients, PUIs, high-risk procedures in COVID hotspots, and in the setting of inadequate PPE. Parhar et al concurred with the use of PVP-I based preparations to reduce viral loads of coronavirus as there was demonstrated efficacy. An anesthesia guideline for operative room care in the COVID-19 era recommended 2 doses of nasal PVP-I within 1 hour of incision for all OR cases. The American Dental Association guidelines for minimizing risk of COVID-19 transmission recommended preoperative use of 0.2% PVP-I mouthwash for all procedures.
To minimize toxicity when using PVP-I as a repeated application, most protocols recommend concentrations of PVP-I between 0.2% and 0.5%. Because nasal and oral viral loads are similar in asymptomatic and symptomatic patients3 and can persist in convalescent seroconverted cases, some of these protocols recommend the use of PVP-I in asymptomatic patients. Unaddressed in any report to date is a discussion of the interdependence of PVP-I aqueous concentration, chemical stability, reported toxicity, and known biocidal efficacy.
Most commercial PVP-I preparations suitable for sinonasal or oral application are aqueous concentrations of 10% PVP-I or 5% PVP-I intended for presurgical antisepsis. Although additional scrubs, solutions, swab sticks, and other PVP-I containing products are available in the 5% to 10% range, many contain additional salts, sudsing agents, and cosolvents that should be avoided in the nose and mouth. Most are specifically labeled for external use and carry warnings against exposure to eyes, ears, and mucosal surfaces. The chemical stability of PVP-I in aqueous solutions at room temperature declines with dilution, alkalinization, and contact with common low-density polymer packaging materials.22, 23 Naturally acidic aqueous PVP-I solutions reach a critical stability inflection point at about 0.75%.24 Paradoxically, studies have shown that the antibacterial activity of full-strength 10% PVP-I increases with dilution.25 Between 10% and 1%, there is an exponential increase in efficacy which plateaus between 1.0% and 0.1% before decreasing again from 0.1% to 0.001%.
Our objective is to present established uses of PVP-I in the sinonasal and oral cavities and outline the safety profile through the discussion of clinical and in vitro toxicity. In addition, we aim to discuss PVP-I efficacy against coronaviruses and its potential use specifically against SARS-CoV-2 to inform the otolaryngology community regarding its use.
Povidone-iodine has been safely administered for up to 5 months in the nasal cavity and 6 months in the oral cavity. Concentrations less than 2.5% in vitro do not reduce ciliary beat frequency or cause pathological changes in ciliated nasal epithelium, upper respiratory, or mucosal cells. Adverse events with oral use have not been reported in conscious adults or children. Allergy and contact sensitivity is rare. Chronic mucosal use up to 5% has not been shown to result in clinical thyroid disease. PVP-I is rapidly virucidal and inactivates Coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).
Inhaling oil of any type can cause lipoid pneumonia and be very harmful. It is hard to believe that report is true.
Incline Bed Therapy to Prevent Pneumonia
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.

An April article on ivermectin use in cell cultures.
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.
Cristina Cuomo, the wife of CNN anchor and COVID-19 patient Chris Cuomo, said she was following the advice of her doctor, energy medicine and homeopathic physician Linda Lancaster, who suggested she “take a bath and add a tiny amount of bleach, and I mean a 1/4 cup of bleach which in an 80 gallon water tub is a ratio of 1:5000.”
Sticking to her guns, defended herself against backlash from people online after writing an in-depth blog post about her holistic treatments for the coronavirus.
Cristina wrote in an amended blog post after receiving negative comments. “Many of the treatments that I relied on are actually cheaper than conventional medicine, like the broth of cayenne pepper, ginger and garlic or the lemon and ginger tea or vitamin C.”
“I added a small amount—1/4 to ½ cup ONLY—of Clorox to a full bath of warm water (80 gallons), ” Cuomo wrote. Sodium hypochlorite in the form of Clorox, as a type of homeopathic bath, ” Cristina wrote, adding that her doctor says “there is no danger” in doing this detox treatment.
“Why?” she added. “To combat the radiation and metals in my system and oxygenate it.” Cuomo also noted that she is “feeling better and the virus is gone.”
Note: Calcium hypochlorite is used to disinfect swimming pools and public drinking water so your already using it daily in small amounts.
EC: Bleach baths have long been promoted by doctors for eczema. Earth Clinic has a few posts here and there about bleach baths.
Here's an open letter from 3 doctors to Dr. Anthony Fauci regarding all the negative statements he has made about hydroxychloroquine. This letter contains all the answers to all the questions anyone could possibly have about this product. I just hope Fauci reads it. If he does, he will never let the public know because the letter exposes him and all his lies and its not a pretty picture. Warning, it is a very long letter but well worth your time. https://www.zerohedge.com/medical/doctors-pen-open-letter-fauci-regarding-use-hydroxychloroquine-treating-covid-19
Well stated. I think listening to front line doctors that are getting results make so much much more sense that the main stream news smokescreen.

Costus Root Powder
Do you mean qist al hindi in Arabic? I'm interested in alternative and herbal treatments. Iza bthibbi ismi 3l face Ragaa Shabib. Btshrf bm3rftk.
I have been taking mms for nearly 3 years using lemon drops. But some 10 days ago this seem to be not working. Because one morning I got up with severe pain in my thigh. Hence here we have an ayurvedic medicine Mahasudarshan kada. I took three times a day. I was relived. I also pumped h2o2 in my mouth (bill munro). After 10 days I was relieved. I hope this was a Flue. I would highly appreciate if u can inumerat on the advantages of using HCL 4 persant, over lemon juice.
As many people on this website have said, NEVER EVER use 35% hydrogen peroxide directly. It is extremely corrosive and dangerous at that concentration. Wear gloves, clothes that cover any bear skin or a labcoat and safety glasses to dilute to 3% or even less. I have used 1.5% because I find it less irritating. If the following procedure looks complicated, buy 3% food grade because the last thing you want is a serious accident with 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Do this at your own risk:
The dilution method is to use C1V1 = C2V2. Lets say you want 50 mL of a 3 % solution. Then 35 x V1 = 3 x 50. Rearranging tells us V1= 4 mL (4.28 mL if you have an accurate measuring device) mixed with 46 mL of distilled water (or reverse osmosis filtered water that has been boiled and cooled to room temperature).
I use Bill Munro's method and purchased a nasal spray bottle-the colloidal silver bottles in the shops in Australia come in glass.
Costus Root Powder
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.

Google canNOT justify their claim to be protecting people from false information.
I think the international legal definitions of both Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide should be a required subject in school. They are NOT what most people think they are and every child should know them. Violations should be recognizable to everyone and no higher education degrees should be awarded unless the candidate is qualified to testify to its definition in any democratic justice system court.
The links do not work...are we being censored?
Wow. YouTube removed this video! Didn't get to see it.
Lugol's Nasal Rinse
I wonder if I could use this iodine solution in a nebuliser; it might stain the hose and face mask but it might be worth it. I'm already doing the H202 via nebuliser.
Hydroxychloroquine will not prevent catching the virus. But it has demonstrated positive results in survival rates with early stage treatment.
Also Cindy, is the ‘flowsforlife.org' site no longer available? I can't seem to find it online anymore.
I think there is a readily available substance that could possibly help people prevent/treat covid-19. The problem is that no one is doing further research on this substance. The substance is stevia, the sugar substitute derived from the leaves of the stevia plant.
Right now it is only beginning to be researched and used to help treat Lyme disease (because of its ability to break up the Lyme disease biofilm).
This is a 2009 Russian study (in vitro) that shows that stevia has virustatic and virucidal (prevents growth of viruses; kills viruses) against a human coronavirus ((Hco V-229E). Download to read the whole paper:
This study shows that stevia can have an important anti-inflammatory effect that could make it beneficial in fighting Covid-19:
And this analysis of published papers shows why the above study could be beneficial in fighting the inflammation caused by Covid-19:
In the absence of any useful measures to prevent/treat Covid-19, particularly if one is told to fight the disease at home, I am choosing to use stevia regularly.
Thank you, Cindy. This is wonderful. I just used the acupressure techniques, and viewed the website as well. Thank you so much for this wonderful, generously-shared work.
The OP is correct, HC works well with zinc, other countries have been using it and have had great success.
The studies you refer to were addressed by the Frontline Doctors in a Press Conference in Washington. DC. The 11 studies you refer to used very high doses of hydroxcloroquin and that's why they were ineffective. When used in proper dosage, this drug is safer then aspirin. The Frontline Doctors are not the only ones using it with success. It was used at the Henry Ford Health Center in Mich with 2,500 people. Dr. Immanuel in Houston used it with 350 patients along with Zinc and irthymyicin. Not sure of the spelling??? Her oldest patient was 92. All 350 patients survived!!!
What is MMS?
EC: MMS = Medical Miracle Supplement (chlorine dioxide). It is a very controversial protocol.
Hydroxychloroquine is an ionosphere. It pushes zinc into cells. The zinc stops the virus from replicating.
Artemisinin is not an ionosphere.
I believe the studies you referred to used much higher doses than what is prescribed for COVID-19 and did not combine the hydrozychloroquine with zinc.
Can you tell us where you got your MMS from? I'm scared of getting sick from it if it's a scammy seller and not the real thing. Also, did you get your hair analysis locally or online? If online, where? Thanks!
