I was about a month and a half after my initial infection and still having trouble breathing, constantly needing to clear my throat, brain fog, low energy, and coughing fits. I would make an occasional Hot Toddy, because it really helped with the breathing, and I always added a dash of cayenne pepper. Last week, the cayenne pepper was not coming out of the shaker, so I opened it up to get a little out, and probably a tablespoon's worth, maybe a little more, fell into my drink. I thought "what the hey" and added a bit more honey to make it more palatable. It was not the best tasting, but I drank the whole cup. The next day, and ever since, I felt better. I drank one more this week, just to be sure I killed everything off, but I am back to my usual self.
I had long covid for 14 months. Spent $25k on supplements (a lot of them listed here) to try to manage/cure it.
Korean Pine Needle tea was the thing that I believe brought me to 100%. I've been 100% for 3 months now. It has a compound suramin which may help protect TCells from being infected by the virus. When I first took it I had flu-like symptoms for 2 days as if I was fighting the virus again. To help manage my longcovid and support immune system I was also taking Lactococcus Lactis (probiotic), buffered vitamin c and Beta Glucans back then.
For early acute phase of the virus, steam-inhaling nascent iodine (add dropper of iodine to boiling cup of water then inhale steam) helped my lungs. 2 weeks in I had burning lungs and covid pneumonia. I needed to steam inhale iodine daily for weeks or I'd wake up with pneumonia the next day. Little did I know I'd still be sick for 13 months after that. (heart, neurological, gastro problems - I had it all) It's a crazy virus but I think natural cures could prevent almost anyone from dying from it. No gene therapy shot needed.
