Salt water for sore throat and other respiratory issues, maybe also worth trying for Coronavirus:
Drinking salt water (not only gargling with it) helps heal sore throat and other respiratory problems. The salt water should be pleasantly salty and not excessively salty. Salt water drinking might help some people even more than Vitamin C and Zinc, although Vitamin C, Zinc, (and Quercetin) are also very helpful.
Once I had a very painful sore throat and couldn't get to the doctor. Vitamin C and Zinc, which often helped, were not helping. The pain was so bad that I thought that maybe I should go to the emergency room. But after following a neighbor's recommendation to gargle with salt water (for fifteen minutes or more) there seemed to be a bit of improvement.
With great thankfulness to the Al-mighty's kindness, the thought of drinking a few glasses of salt water suddenly came to me. After taking several glasses of salty water, l felt significant improvement. Over the next few days I continued drinking several glasses of salt water each day. Within a few days, the sore throat was gone.
I gave this recommendation to a friend who had Coronavirus, who was feeling better, but was still having some respiratory issues. She said that drinking the salt water helped her a lot.
In conjunction with following the doctors instruction, maybe people with Coronavirus might try this simple thing as an ad-on to whatever else they are taking. It can't hurt, and it might help.
May there be quick healing for all of humanity and all of the world.
Salt with iodine in a nebulizer solution? Or edible solution?
Salt (NACL) and Water (H2O) The following link provides information about cleansing the sinuses and breathing passages with hypertonic saline to augment the natural killing mechanisms of the immune system. Theoretically, regular daily hypertonic saline nasal irrigation and gargle (HSNIG) could be a proactive step to kill the coronavirus. Note: Hypertonic Saline Solution made from table salt (sodium chloride) and water (H2O) has the same main ingredients (hydrogen, oxygen, chloride) as hydroxychloroquine being used with success in France to shorten the duration of COVID-19 and currently being tested in New York City. Here are excerpts from the article: We know about the cleaning power of bleach and are using it to sanitize surfaces amid the coronavirus. Have you ever wondered why this works? A certain chemical, hypochlorous acid (HOCL), in the bleach kills pathogens, including fungus, bacterium, and virus. Obviously, it is not safe to inhale or ingest bleach. However, we do have an easy and safe alternative. Cells lining the nose and throat can produce HOCL when they are bathed with chloride. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this exposure is using sodium chloride, better known as salt or saline. The more chloride presented to the cells, the more HOCL they generate. The process was clearly presented in 2018 by Dr. Sandeep Ramalingam and his colleagues, who said, “Antiviral innate immune response in non-myeloid cells is augmented by chloride ions via an increase in intracellular hypochlorous acid levels.” Your white blood cells also produce HOCL, which plays a critical role in the initial immune response to a variety of infections, including COVID-19. In light of the tremendous transmission rate of the virus, it is their recommendation that everyone practice HSNIG. While this hypothesis needs to be confirmed, they do not see a downside to implementing this very safe self-care approach now, in addition to the current measures of social distancing and personal hygiene. Homemade Hypertonic Saline Solution Ingredients: 4 cups of freshly boiled water (rolling boil for 3 minutes to purify) 2 tablespoons of sea salt or table salt (non-iodized salt preferred but not critical) How to use: Go to the website for complete instructions on how to perform nasal irrigation and gargling. Frequency of use: If you have symptoms or a confirmed case of COVID-19, repeat the usage up to every two hours during the first few days as symptoms are present. If you are asymptomatic and do not have known COVID-19, repeat the usage every four to six hours as a preventative measure. At the time of publishing this article, they recommend all people in the United States do this hypertonic saline nasal irrigation and gargle. They recommend continuation at least until the U.S. Centers for Disease Control no longer considers COVID-19 a serious threat in this country. https://thefederalist.com/2020/03/27/how-grandmothers-gargling-remedy-could-help-abate-the-wuhan-virus/

Theoretically, regular daily hypertonic saline nasal irrigation and gargle (HSNIG) could be a proactive step to kill the coronavirus. Our country is taking bold actions to curtail the spread of COVID-19. In light of the tremendous transmission rate of the virus, it is their recommendation that everyone practice HSNIG. While this hypothesis needs to be confirmed, they do not see a downside to implementing this very safe self-care approach now, in addition to the current measures of social distancing and personal hygiene. Homemade Hypertonic Saline Solution Ingredients: 4 cups of freshly boiled water (rolling boil for 3 minutes to purify) 2 tablespoons of sea salt or table salt (non-iodized salt preferred but not critical) How to make: Wash your hands thoroughly. Choose a clean container or flask. Add the salt. Pour the freshly boiled water into the container and mix thoroughly until salt completely dissolves. Close the container with an airtight lid and store in the refrigerator. Make a fresh batch every 24 hours. To make a smaller batch, use 1 cup of water with 1 tablespoon of salt.

Below is a link to an article about a biomedical engineer that created a mask coated in salt that he says could neutralize viruses like the coronavirus in 5 minutes. He said because the molecular structure of salt is crystalline, its hard, sharp corners can pierce viruses, rendering them unviable. His team has been testing salt-coated masks in the lab for the past few years, and found that they can inactivate three strains of the influenza virus. https://www.businessinsider.com/mask-coated-in-salt-neutralizes-viruses-like-coronavirus-2020-2 Here are the ingredients of Gatorade from Wikipedia: water, sucrose (table sugar), dextrose, citric acid, natural flavor, sodium chloride (table salt), sodium citrate, monopotassium phosphate, and flavoring/coloring ingredients. Some Gatorade flavor variations used to contain brominated vegetable oil as a stabilizer. The main ingredients are the same as table salt - sodium and chloride. For a dozen days Carl Goldman was reduced to a 20- by 30-foot containment room on the Diamond Princess and his only visitors came bearing coronavirus testing kits and bottles of Gatorade while dressed head to toe in hazmat suits. Here's the link: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/tests-doctors-hazmat-suits-lots-gatorade-report-inside-coronavirus-quaratine-n1150601 Based on the information above, sodium chloride found in nasal sprays, table salt and Gatorade have the potential to kill coronavirus. Adding anti-fungal agents like garlic, coconut oil or nystatin could help with cases of COVID-19 patients that also have fungal infections. Adding anti-bacterial agents like garlic and coconut oil or antibiotics could help with cases of COVID-19 patients that also have bacterial infections. Coconut oil contains lauric acid which has been demonstrated to cross the blood-brain barrier.

Hi! Would you know a safe dose for kids?
Downgrading Coronavirus I have not had a cold, flu or fever since 2004. I did this by tasting about a gram of table salt and chewing a 500 mg tablet of calcium carbonate at the first sign of the chills. If you think back to any cold or flu you've ever had the chills were the first symptom. One of the first symptoms of the covid-19 virus is the chills. It is my belief that the chills are caused by the rapid firing of the sodium/potassium pumps of the cells. The virus does this to feed off of the residue energy from the break down of ATP (called Na/K ATPase). When I taste salt and calcium my body interrupts that there is an increase of sodium and calcium. When sodium and calcium are increased the sodium/potassium pumps are inhibited from spinning out of control. This cuts off the virus's fuel and the virus starves. By tasting the salt and chewing the calcium you cut off the virus's fuel. Without this fuel I have found that none of the other symptoms from colds or flus have happened to me. If the salt and calcium works (as it has worked for me for 16 years) a person who uses it would not be sick. but, they would still have the virus. They would still spread the virus, but since they are not sick they would not have to go to any hospital and thus not overload the system. I must caution this salt and calcium thing is a one time thing. You feel the chills, taste the salt, chew the calcium and if the chills are killed, it worked. If the chills are still there (after about 15-20 minutes) it didn't work. But at least it cost you near nothing and you have caused yourself no harm.
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.
Viral medicine is made from star anise.
I've got plenty of my Flu Brew, which is a blend of Star-Anise and elderberry. The active ingredient in Tamiflu is shikemic acid, the best source for it is Star-Anise, pair it with the natural source of quercetin and you've got a powerful antiviral.
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.
Dr. Matthias Rath has a YouTube video on “Ending the current pandemic and preventing future pandemics” that is extremely important to watch. Like he says, we are at the crossroads and, if we don�TMt do something now, our future will be based in fear with ever-increasing erosion of our fundamental liberties because we willingly handed over our fate to the pharmaceutical investment business (very big business that will profit only the privileged few). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIdX0N-c1eQ&feature=youtu.be His message is simple: take vitamins and micronutrients to build up your immune system. Eat real food – grow it if you can (think sprouts – even I can grow sprouts!). Please watch it – be informed – not only for yourself, but for your loved ones and the future generations. Otherwise, it isn�TMt much of a legacy we�TMre leaving for them, is it?
Please see the treatment from Madagascar, also used in Tanzania. Very easy to google this. They are using Sweet Wormwood Tea with great success. Just buy the supplement, empty a few capsules into boiling water with honey and sip.
Any thoughts about the use of dihydroquercetin (Taxifolin) anyone?
Aspirin Kills Lipid-coated Viruses Confirmed by Research
Some interesting research has recently appeared as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This research from the University of Maryland(Oct 20,2020) confirms that aspirin is effective in killing COVID-19 virus, thereby causing a reduction in risk of mechanical ventilation, ICU admission and mortality in COVID-19 patients. Here is the research:
The many benefits of aspirin are: it kills lipid-coated viruses; it thins the blood; its a pain killer; it actively suppresses or reduces inflammation. Of course all the older members of this forum have known this for over 10 years because of Ted's informative posts.
And just out of interest and as a help to those people still worried about the COVID-19 problem, here is an interesting past post from Ted describing his famous one hour aspirin cure for flu which will probably work just as well well for COVID-19(also a lipid-coated virus):
"Is it really possible to "cure" flu in one hour? Yes, but it's usually less than an hour. Not that I wanted it to but as a necessity. One case told me (one of my students) had only one aspirin. The other case is the owner of LPG gas, whose store had to close due to 5 p.m. closing time and didn't want the employees to go home with a bad flu (two of them in fact) and the fact that she hates the idea of taking aspirin more than one.
So the remedies, assuming you have them, is in a full glass of water, aspirin is dissolved, added with 4 drops of 0.1% methylene blue and 8 drops of concentrated Hydrochloric acid. 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt is option to stop the mucus that sometimes occur. Lysine 1000 mg is optional, although lysine is a rare commodity here in Bangkok. It will go stop the flu in less than an hour.
There's just one catch: make sure you wash your hands before eating food and clean the enviroment otherwise you will catch it again the next day or two, and obviously avoid picking nose, a bad habit my students have and recaught the flu 2 more times, before he stopped that habit and never had a flu since.
In case some people are low on aspirin, and by chance happen to have methylene blue 0.1% and hydrochloric acid, this remedy would work. How it works is relatively simple. The methylene blue raise the energy level it works on the same principle of caffeine in a strong black coffee is used instead, and this can be mixed with the aspirin. In case hydrochloric acid isn't sitting around, I think plain distilled vinegar say 2 tablespoons with lemon juice one tablespoon is mixed can be substituted to have a similar effect as the one hour flu cure.
It is important to wash the hands after flu is gone. I prefer to wash my hands in vinegar, or a very weak solution of hydrochloric acid such as 10 drops per glass as antiseptic solution, as virus in general do not die in alcohol gel and other alcohol antiseptic. They also resist fairly well with most chlorine antiseptic solution, but they do not survive well in vinegar, hydrogen peroxide solutions in general. The hydrogen peroxide antiseptic solution should preferably be about 1% concentration when using as hand wash or general cleaning the area to avoid reinfection. Of course if a person were to get necrotising fasciitis, the preferred remedy is not this one, they don't survive well in betadine iodine solution mixed with other chlorine washes."
A member of our household came down with Covid19 and my husband caught it because he picked her up from work, I caught it because my husband and I share the same bed. We used thieves oil by putting five or six drops in a diffuser in our room, drinking any hot tea with a drop of thieves oil in it, I put a drop of thieves oil in a bottle of water and drank it throughout the day.
I put 5 or 6 drops in an 10 - 12 ounce spray bottle and we sprayed our throat as needed and it took away the soreness and helped with coughing, we put a drop under the bottom of our foot and rubbed it in because it is said to help build up the immune system. My husband only had symptoms for two days and the other member of the household had them for about five days. When she retested for Covid19 she tested negative.
The history of using thieves oil can be found on the internet and the recipe to make it also. It is made by using essential oils.
- Clove oil: 40 drops
- Cinnamon bark oil: 20 drops
- Eucalyptus oil: 15 drops
- Lemon oil: 35 drops
- Rosemary oil: 10 drops
You can also find other recipes online and the oil already made in health food stores and online. If you make up your own, put it in a dark bottle but please look up the history because it was a little long for this posting
Just read about the Chinese provinces where traditional herbal medicine was used initially, and mortality rates were only .1 percent instead of pushing 3 percent in “western medicine only” regions: https://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/3051009/coronavirus-do-herbal-remedies-work-and-could-they-help-stricken TLDR: “Hubei did not routinely treat patients with herbal remedies. Guangdong, and coastal Zhejiang, meanwhile, had some of the highest numbers of patients after Hubei. Patients there were given herbal drinks to relieve symptoms even before they were testing positive… Guangdong had reported a mortality of just 0.1 per cent of infected people – compared with Wuhan's rate of 2.6 per cent – and none of the 1,155 confirmed patients in Zhejiang had died… the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shanghai generated a list of about a dozen herbs that could suppress the virus by simulating on computer how they would interact with the viral strain.” Maybe someone knows a way to find out about these treatments?
Learn about Chinese herbs that are protecting healthcare workers and which herbs to take at every stage of the virus - even to prevent and stop cytokine storm. https://plumdragonherbs.com/blogs/news/coronavirus
I would suggest taking Turmeric, virgin organic coconut oil, and zinc (ie Zicam) as all of these are anti-viral. Turmeric is even recommended as a treatment for Ebola and other very serious, hard-to-treat virsuses.
Due to this being a virus and success of Turmeric as an anti-viral, particularly the flu, I looked on-line. Looks like this has some validity. I take a teaspoonful of turmeric with some pepper for anti-inflammation periodically anyway. Just thought this might be of interest to others in light of its success against other viruses.
What they do not want you to know. https://vitalitymagazine.com/article/the-vital-light-of-nikola-tesla-healing-power-of-ultraviolet-light/amp/
ORH here,,,,,,,,, interesting that ultraviolet light is now being discussed for COVID 19 because me and my Tractor Driver have been been getting UBI's for the last 10 or 11 years. We start in Oct. and do the procedure monthly until March instead of a flu shot. This year we had one this week. This procedure was done up until the 50's when Anti-biotics came out. 50 cc's of blood are removed and passed twice before an ultraviolet light and re-injected in your arm. The procedure has been modified to add hydrogen peroxide after the first pass and the blood turns from vein purple to brilliant red. This procedure causes your stem cells to produce more white bloods cells to fight off toxins. The effect lasts about 3 months. Toxins cannot build an immunity to this trick as they can with anti-biotics. So the smart alecks that put Trump down for mentioning Ultraviolet Light are the ignorant ones. I would venture to say that few MD's are aware of this once standard medical procedure. Too cheap and too effective. We have once again outsmarted ourselves. ====ORH====
How to Prevent the Corona Virus Naturally This post will say how to prevent the corona virus naturally using simple foods that anyone can buy in a supermarket. The book is partially based upon the Canon of Medicine's advice during pestilence by Ibn Sina. First id like to mention I have no medical degree. So what is written below is simply what I think and is not meant to be a substitute for medical advice. Most of the things below, even if they don't help, hopefully, can't harm.
Most of these advices I double checked with someone who was traditionally trained in Unani(Ancient Greek/Arabic) Medicine in Pakistan. He stated that they are good advice but only God knows how effective they will be.
You will need the following, God willing: Raw Honey Vinegar Squash(the vegetable). Incense And willpower to follow through with a few steps: Honey mixed with vinegar is a classic remedy used in greek medicine (known as oxymel.) Honey is known to be good for coughs. Eat a teaspoon of honey everyday for prevention. Squash/pumpkin/gourd was the vegetable eaten by Jonah when he was sick after being ejected from the whale. It is said that it is good for fevers and coughs. Ibn Sina states to use incense in one's home during times of pestilence to purify the air and to put vinegar in one's foods. [Canon of Medicine] It is known that vinegar protects from lots of things. Quit smoking cigarettes if you smoke. Quit chewing tobacco, or smoking opiates, or anything like that. The provinces where it broke the most in Iran are said to have the highest opiate intake in the world. Quit drinking alcohol if you drink, especially wine. Relax, stay at home.
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.
