I recovered from COVID-19 in July 2021. What helped me during extreme breathing problems was drinking salt water by adding 1/2 teaspoon table salt to 8 ounces warm water and sipping it throughout the day and taking CVS saline nasal spray which contains sodium chloride. I also held a cotton ball soaked with isopropyl alcohol under my nose for about an hour. I also applied a cotton ball soaked with isopropyl alcohol to my face, neck and chest. I also wash my white towels with detergent and bleach and hang them in the bathroom to air dry. Bleach and isopropyl alcohol kill COVID-19. I also use Mold Armor which contains Sodium Hypochlorite to clean the bathroom. Christina Cuomo recovered from COVID-19 taking a bath with water and 1/4 cup bleach added to the bath water. The Mayo Clinic uses bleach baths for people with skin diseases.
Salt attracts water into the airways, which thins the mucus, making it easier to cough out. Research has shown that inhaling hypertonic saline twice a day helps people with cystic fibrosis experience fewer lung infections. https://www.cff.org/mucus-thinners
Using white towels and white sheets and washing them in detergent and bleach kills COVID-19. Wiping surfaces with bleach kills COVID-19. Studies of the virus have shown that bleach kills coronavirus on surfaces in about five minutes, and isopropyl alcohol destroys it on surfaces even faster, Bill Bryan, a senior official at the US Department of Homeland Security, told reporters Thursday 4/23/2020. Bryan, who is not a scientist, said a US Army biological lab outside Washington, DC had been conducting tests on the virus.
Hydrogen Peroxide kills COVID-19. A mouth rinse can be made by mixing hydrogen peroxide and water in a 50-50 ratio.
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?
Salt + Calcium Carbonate
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.
Time to take the tiger by the tail. Modern medicine has no good antivirals, only dubious drugs with weird side effects. Ivermectin, for instance, is horse de-wormer, fer pitty sake! But we have very good natural antivirals available.
My mother in-law was in that Kirkland, Wa. senior center where the first covid deaths in the U.S. were reported. Of course she got the virus, was in isolation and on I.V. and Oxygen. She was 94 at the time. Wifey takes her mom a cup of homemade soup every day, so we began spiking it with an ounce of silver water. In 3 days she was out of isolation and on the mend.
We stopped 2 other cases in our household with Vitamin C, 500 mg per 100 lbs of body weight every hour, and garlic, once in fresh form and once in capsules, every hour. All symptoms were gone in 8 hours or less.
Recent very robust research shows that if you have 250 mcg of selenium per liter of blood, no virus can live in you. I have not had the chance to try this on a covid case, but we did stop 2 colds by taking 200 mcg of selenium every hour for 4 hours. And covid is just a weaponized cold virus.
Other effective virus killers include hydrogen peroxide, zinc, iodine, borax, oil of oregano, many others. do your own research online. And remember all the scary new covid variants and mutations are still just viruses. The natural cures will work on them just as well.
I noticed the symptoms early on, and found that my usual cold and flu protocols didn't faze this bug. So I got aggressive, taking 2 grams of C with a handful of garlic pills every 2 hours. ( I weigh 200 lb.) I was symptom free in 8 hours but kept taking C and garlic through the day. Then I went on a preventive dose of 2 grams of C per day.
Some time later a friend got sick. I had read a robust study that said if you have 250 mcg of selenium per liter of blood in your body, then no virus can live in you. So we had her taking a 200 mcg capsule every hour, and cured her in a day.
But the most amazing cure was my mother-in-law. She was 94 and living in that elder care home in Kirkland, Wa. where the first covid deaths were reported. Of course mom got the bug. They had her in isolation with IV and ventilator. My wife takes her mom a little pot of homemade soup every day, so we began to spike it with an ounce of silver water. Mom was out of iso in 3 days. The docs said they had never seen anyone recover so fast.
Covid 19 is a weaponized cold virus, lab mutated to make it more tenacious. They say there is no cure, but there are many vitamins, minerals, and herbs that can kill or disable any virus. Don't buy into the paranoia or the official medical nonsense.

Hello everyone, although I am new to posting, I am not new to utilizing the multifaceted resources within this wonderful website. People are waking up to the realization that we have all we need to heal ourselves through the life-giving nature of the planet we inhabit.
The reason for my post, I feel compelled to share a resource that has far exceeded anything else I have tried. Believe me when I say I have tried everything to help my lungs during my stent with covid. Struggling with allergies and asthma my whole life, I am no stranger to the inability to breathe. After trying anything I can to avoid Dr.'s some things help more than others but nothing, oh nothing works like a weed you find everywhere, called mullein.
Find it from nature so lessen the chances of round-up and glyphosate, clean with soap and water, string leaves up to dry, crush the fuzzy soft leaves up, roll up with zigzags and take 4-5 hits like a cigarette and witness the miracle.
The results are truly unbelievable, and I cannot stress enough just how wonderfully this plant works.
(Thessaloniki - Greece)
I got COVID and was OK for about 48 hours until I literally felt as if something was eating my flesh, heart, brain and bones away. I had high fevers, chills and was burning all over.
I tried raw garlic, ACV for sinusitis which helped, liposomal vitamin C, magnesium chloride, supplementation with vitamin D, zinc, selenium... and some essential oils. They helped a bit. But nothing removed this burning sensation.
Then I got this intuition to try spirulina. Actually, I had it for the third time. But this time I took some. And, the burning feeling went away within an hour. I still had high fevers that I reduced with paracetamol (500 mg) every 6 hours, but I was able to get out of bed for the first time.
I have done some research since, and I found this :
confirming that there could be scientific ground to what I had experienced.
I went to buy chlorella. I took both at night and this morning. I am still weak, but nothing like I was before taking spirulina.
I'm still using vitamin C and vitamin & mineral supplements and dropped everything else as they upset my stomach too much.
One last thing, I noticed I needed to drink a lot of water and stay hydrated all the time or my symptoms would get worse.
I didn't see spirulina or chlorella mentioned here, so I decided to share my story. I hope it helps you or someone you love.
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.
STEAM INHALATION FOR COVID-19.
There are many articles available in the net regarding Steam Inhalation for Covid-19.
Three articles are given below:
1) “Steam Inhalation Therapy found to inactivate SARS COV-2 Virions “. By Ananya Mandal.
2) “Steam Inhalation as an Adjuvant Treatment in COVID-19 Positive Health Care Professional.”
3) “Thermal inactivation of SARS COVID – 2 Virus.”
Different strains of Covid-19 virus are sensitive to the temperature and pH value of its surrounding. The steam temperature will be about 50 to 55 centigrade and its pH value will be about 7.0. Some hospitals in my area are asking Covid – 19 moderate to minor patients to take steam inhalation for about 4 to 5 times per day. Coronavirus mostly resides in the lungs, mouth and nose. When one takes steam inhalation, it is better to alternate between mouth and nose during steam inhalation. Electric steam inhalers are available online.
I am using steam inhalation since I have a heart problem and am 78 years old. I didn't take vaccination and I am taking steam inhalation for prevention. One can expect a cure for minor to moderate patients in about seven days. This treatment can be used both for prevention and cure.
Steam inhalation for COVID treatment and prevention
I watched a video from Nilesh Jogel, the founder of Jogi Ayurved Hospital in Surat, Gujarat. He said his staff and patients receive the same treatment to prevent or heal from COVID and no staff members have gotten sick and all their patients have recovered well.
They breathe in plain water steam twice per day, breathing in ten times through the nose and out through the mouth, and then breathing in ten times through the mouth and out through the nose. He said this is an easy, low cost, safe treatment that anyone can do with a stove and pan of water.
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.
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.
Tea tree oil is proving to be effective against covid lungs. COVID-19 can cause lung complications such as pneumonia and, in the most severe cases, acute respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS. Sepsis, another possible complication of COVID-19, can also cause lasting harm to the lungs and other organs. Tea tree oil is ideal for treating respiratory conditions.
Dr. Reuben Swartz (Amish/Mennonite Doctor) here in Western Kentucky has been telling people with Covid lungs to pepper their chest, back and neck with straight Tea tree oil. Smear it around to make a light coating on the skin. Ruben himself got covid over a month ago and cured himself using Cajeput oil (cousin to tea tree oil) on the chest/back. Along with herbs like garlic and others internally. He recovered in 3 days and he is in his 80's.
Note: If you have sensitive skin, dilute 1:1 with coconut or olive oil. You do want this formula strong.
One massive study that tested 45 oils against a variety of bacteria, fungi, and viruses found tea tree and cinnamon bark oils to be by far the most effective against bacteria.
Another research team then tested the antiviral effects of tea tree oil against the flu virus, which is also responsible for bronchitis, discovered that it could inhibit the virus to a significant degree. It is also a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that can relieve inflammation and prevent your bronchial cells from being unnecessarily damaged.
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
Buy Indian Soda Tonic, it has Quinine in it. A friend's family of 12 got COVID in the Philippines, they drank the soda tonic. I was told they were cured.
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?

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.
