Korean Pine Needle Tea

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.

My husband and I both had covid and were sick for two months. My husband ended up in the hospital but we got him out because their protocol was killing him. He left with a 10% chance to live because his liver was poisoned by the medication they gave him.

We looked up everything natural that would heal his liver and he took it. His liver is 100% back. He developed a pulmonary embolism so we both went on what's called the long haul protocol for covid. It is working. I'm 100% back and he is about 80% back. I hope this helps you.

  • Ivermectin for 5 days then 1 or two times a week for 4 weeks.
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Vitamin C 500 to 1000 mg a day
  • Vitamin D3 1000 to 3000 iu a day
  • Quercetin 250 mg a day
  • Zinc 30 to 40 mg a day
  • Aspirin 325 mg a day
  • DHA or Omega 3
  • N-Acetyl Cysteine 600mg 1 of 2 times a day
  • Probiotics
  • Melatonin 10 to 20 mg before bed

You do this until you are better.

You can get info from the FLCCC Alliance.

Your comment could not be further from the truth. If you had done your due diligence before posting your comment, then you would have discovered the help they have provided people that could not get better on the pharma hospital protocols. I challenge you to find YouTube videos on the work they're doing. They've appeared before Congress trying to get the protocols changed and because of how the NIH and CDC is run, they were turned a deaf ear. They've continued their work and helped other countries and moved on from petitioning the US Congress. Look up Louis Gossett, Jr. and how he checked himself out of an Atlanta hospital because a kind person reached out and spoke up about the FLCCC protocol. He claims it saved his life! They also run a unit out of a Texas hospital that is open minded to their methods. Once again, please research before condemning these wonderful doctors who practice in the spirit of what EarthClinic stands for and represents.

FLCCC are dead on. I've used the protocol, including Ivermectin, to cure several of my friends who got Covid. I've got hundreds of Ivermectin, imported and dole it out as I hear about issues. Works like a charm, usually takes about 3 days when you include D, zinc, quercetin, A, and lots of C to bring down inflammation.

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.

Parasite Cleanse

I had longhaulers too. I wanted to Kill myself. I won't go into my symptoms. A parasite cleanse took my symptoms away. I became myself again. I did the Dr. Hulda Clark cleanse. If you think about it, ivermectin and other similar drugs people are talking are anti parasitic. Maybe there's a connection? Not sure, but I know I got my life back. Hope this helps.

I just luvvv those "fact check" websites who are definitely NOT funded by pharma and their affiliates.

Thanks for the laugh Miss 😁

I had Covid. L-Lysine was the game changer for me. Helps stop the virus from replicating. Yes, got all this information from Earth Clinic.

Many have been helped by the FLCCC protocols, why don't you look at India and see how they eradicated Cov1d. Hint it costs $2.65 usd


Coconut Oil, Apple Cider Vinegar

I believe I had Covid because I had all of the symptoms; shortness of breath, loss of taste and sense of smell, non existent appetite, achy, body felt heavy, extremely tired, etc.

First of all, I forced myself to eat at least 3 times a day a small nutritious meal, no junk food or processed food. After each and every meal I consumed 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil.

After consuming the oil I immediately also took 1 teaspoon of organic and unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar in a cup of water and drank it. Slowly but surely I got better. I kept taking the oil and ACV until all my symptoms were completely gone. It took time, but I completely healed. Never take ACV without diluting it in a cup of water and make sure the ACV is unfiltered.

Hope this info helps!

I had long Covid. I was tired, depressed - just not feeling right at all. I had to cut the grass one day, although I had no desire to do this with my push mower. Afterwards, much to my surprise, I actually felt BETTER... This got me thinking...What sorts of processes are stimulated in the body by exertion?

And this led me to the idea of natural steroids.

I happened to have some Ayurvedic natural plant steroid on hand known as Guggul or Gugglesterone (see the "steroid" in the end of the name?) I took about double what was suggested on the bottle from an Indian grocery store. I felt better 20 minutes after I took the first dose the following day. I tried taking it, then not taking it on alternate days. I had to keep taking it every day for a couple of months. I don't take them any longer and I feel fine, again.

tl;dr guggulsterone every day for 8 weeks at double recommended dose on bottle.

Two people meet, a person with experience and one with an opinion. The person with experience knows the way through the challenge because they already walked it. The one with an opinion will continue on in their opinion and simply pass on and make room for the generation that will research. Simple fact check isn't research but peer review medical articles are research.

3-4 weeks after having Covid I realized my memory loss was acute. I am 62 years. This has been going on for 3 months. The term "brain fog" didn't register for me. It was short term memory loss and more like neuro connections not taking place.

I did more research and memory loss from Long-Covid can mimic Alzheimer Symptoms. It was pretty alarming.

I have recently been taking Maca for a host of reasons. Balancing hormones for post-menopause. Vaginal dryness. Depression. Adrenal exhaustion. Boosting my Energy. After taking Maca for several weeks, I realized my memory issues have improved significantly.

I did more research into the Maca and found it supports good memory and cognitive function. Stress relief. It supports a healthy libido and fertility issues. Maca supports the whole endocrine system. It is referred to as the South American ginseng. My memory issues have improved 75% ... oh and so has my sex drive.

I found an Organic brand that combines red, black and yellow Maca.The dosage on supplements are generally for maintenance and not therapeutic ... so I usually double or triple the dosage if I am treating for something. If the bowels become loose, you've over done it.

Very impressed with Maca.

Blackstrap Molasses

I had Covid which caused horrible fatigue, shortness of breath, grey skin.

There has been some research on anemia associated with Covid.

I started taking 1 tablespoon of Unsulfured Blackstrap molasses once a day in the morning- I started feeling better within a week, was able to get up and go for a short walk without feeling exhausted and short of breath and I got color back in my horrible grey skin.

More isn't necessarily better, so please don't go overboard.

FLCCC has all you need for the virus protocol. Thankfully when Omicron hit my whole family, we had plenty of everything they advise except the Nebulizer, which I regret. However, high dose Iver tablet form does work, but for some reason, the horse paste worked faster. 3 of us were over the most severe symptoms in 3-5 days and 80% better day 7. There are some annoying lingering symptoms such as dry cough and phlegm production for a few weeks, but the severity is minimal. Some I know who were jabbed suffered with the virus 10-14 days because they followed allopathic protocols, which are mostly failures based on profit only.

Horse paste and on each notch it is 50 pounds so you go by how much you weigh and add about 20 to 50 pounds for longhaul covid. Say you weigh 150 then you would take it up to about 4 notches. We have taken it for several months and we haven't had any side effects.

I want to share some good news! I have finally healed after 15 months of having frequent long haul COVID symptoms. I had COVID in December 2020; my worst symptom was a horrendous headache that lasted a week or so. Other than that, my symptoms were body aches, upset stomach, diarrhea, fatigue and brain fog. The headache and most of the other symptoms went away after about 10 days. I was blessed that I had only very mild respiratory symptoms. A few weeks after I had recovered from the COVID, I became ill for a few days with what I came to know as long haul Covid. I had these symptoms (mild headache, nausea, digestive tract upset, and fatigue) once or more each month for well over a year.

After more than a year of these frequent long haul illnesses, I read medical studies showing that 70% or more of our immune system is located in our digestive tract. I began working diligently to strengthen my immune system by eating cultured vegetables and drinking probiotic drinks daily. I started very slowly with just small amounts of the probiotic food and drink so that my system could adjust slowly. I did this faithfully each day and within a couple of weeks I saw that my symptoms were milder and I was sick less frequently. After only a couple of months of this diet change, I had no long haul symptoms or illness at all and months later I've had no recurrence. I make my own cultured vegetables and my own water kefir ..... these are both rich in probiotics. I know now how very vital it is to maintain excellent gut health for a strong immune system.

I hope my experience will be helpful to others.

D3, Zinc, Vitamin C
Posted by Gary (Kitchener On) on 12/13/2021

Hi, I had the virus last Dec. and all my research pointed at Melatonin 10mgs. at bedtime, but I stop all supplements as well as Melatonin every weekend, Start all over on Mondays

This will help your body from overloading and it works.

One of the best side effects of Melatonin is it cleans your lungs.

Good luck, Gary

I have written a significant amount about the use of melatonin for Covid-19 and the aftermath of Covid-19 or what is commonly referred to as, "Long Covid" and this brand new study (February 2022) gives confirmation to the use of melatonin for Long Covid and partially explains why it works :

If you don't tolerate melatonin supplements, you can get daily sun exposure to increase your melatonin levels.


D3, Zinc, Vitamin C
Posted by Bob (Sydney) on 12/13/2021

Try K2mk4 + k2mk7. I can't stress how much this is important. Basically the whole covid is actually k2 depletion. K2mk4 get 45mg from lifeextension.

Take 1 capsule every 3 hours for 24 hours. That is it.

And get K2mk7 trans type menaq7 type 3 times daily by 5 to 600 mcg for a week. Then slow to 180 to 200 mcg daily. K2 is gluing on spike, activating c and s human proteins, cleaning calcium from inflamed soft tissues. Etc... Google covid+k2 vitamin.

Proper Hydration
Posted by Lena (Oklahoma City) on 02/04/2022

One thing that we've noticed (and that no one else has mentioned) about covid recovery is how *vitally important* proper hydration is! Drink at least a gallon a day of *Clean Water* (reverse osmosis or distilled) with electrolytes/minerals added. This breaks up and clears out mucous, toxins, viruses, and other bad things that attack our bodies. Never underestimate simple things God created--such as water!

D3, Zinc, Vitamin C

A very useful supplement for Covid-19 as well as recovery, is melatonin.

The reason why is because melatonin is protective of the major organs of the body as well as having anti inflammatory as well as very potent antioxidative stress effects. Given that the SARS CoV-2 virus has shown that it can attack many organs and operates well in an environment of elevated oxidative stress and inflammation, melatonin is well suited for the purpose.

I wrote about this extensively here :

And here:

Good luck!

3mg is not enough. You need to take at least 4x that amount. But it's really based on your weight. If you're fighting COVID and symptoms have progressed to the pulmonary stage, you may take 36mg of Ivermectin if you weigh approx 130 lbs, for example. This dose would be taken once a day, for at least 5 days.

Please see these very helpful instructions for how to figure out your dosage, as well as other very important supplements you should be taking in conjunction.


Korean Pine Needle Tea
Posted by Orin (United States) on 08/29/2021

Madelyn, you don't need "Korean" pine. You can use eastern white pine or red pine. Research both. You can find a lot of people selling both on etsy.

Just look at reviews and how long the sellers have been in business when deciding. Many are harvesting pine needles fresh by day. That's what you want. Freshly picked.

You may luck out and find that they grow in your area and you can go out and harvest yourself.

Pine Bark Extract
Posted by Art (California) on 03/10/2022 1675 posts


Thank you very much for saying so.

I think Pine Bark Extract (PBE) would be useful for Long Covid. My favorite would likely be melatonin as I had previously posted about and I think that the two would work well together. On a related note, Grape Seed Extract (GSE), not to be confused with Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE), has very similar qualities to PBE.

I also think that bringing your vitamin D level (25 OH d level) well up into the upper half of the reference range of 30 ~ 100 ng/ml will likely be additive to the other two.

Taking vitamin D at the time of Covid-19 infection may not be optimal because it can take two weeks or longer for the vitamin D3 supplement to be fully converted to the active form of vitamin D. For Long Covid, I think the importance is to get your 25 OH d level up into the upper half of the reference range which your doctor can test for you to make sure you go high enough, but not beyond the top of the reference range.

Regarding PBE for high blood pressure, when I took very high dose PBE as an experiment, it had no discernible effect on my blood pressure.


Neem Tea

Neem Tea for Long Covid Fatigue

I love neem tea for its effectiveness for a wide variety of diseases. Suffering from extreme exhaustion that is kind of disabling, I tried neem tea and taking it for only two three days resulted in improvement of my fatigue.

dosage: wash 10 neem leaves and put in a cup of boiling water. Let it simmer on low heat with pan covered for 20 minutes. Turn off stove and let it cool for further half an hour. Drink once a day.

Please do check the conditions under which neem should not be taken such as during pregnancy.

Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation
Posted by Edward (North Carolina) on 11/06/2021

I experience the burning in the throat occasionally. I thought it was from not mixing the solution well enough each time and getting too much salt from the saline. I don't know the formula you are using but I assume you are using food grade peroxide and not the regular as that will definitely burn. I would also get a nebulizer as it will be much more effective. I was near death and a friend provided the solution and nebulizer and said to do it every hour. I did this for two days and slowly tapered down. It saved my life! Prayers to you. Hope this helps.

Lysine, Iodine
Posted by susan (buffalo) on 10/08/2021

This worked for my family:

1) l-lysine. 500 mg twice a day (1000mg total per day)


2) 2000 micrograms iodine once a day

Take the above for three weeks beyond when you feel better. You will probably feel better in about a week plus take the above for three more weeks= four weeks total. Limit your coffee intake severely at this time. This is the same recipe to take for anyone with a frozen shoulder that has occurred spontaneously/without injury. Based on my experience, I believe a frozen shoulder this way is caused by a virus.

Posted by MissM (New York) on 08/25/2021

Wait after taking ivermectin. Covid to me is very much like Lyme disease. When you treat it, you can get die off symptoms when the virus is being killed in your body.

Rest and see how you are in a week or too. Take aspirin for aches and pains.

I had both COVID and Lyme. Not at once, the exit of both of these things was painful but they were eradicated.

Korean Pine Needle Tea
Posted by Chelsie (CA, USA) on 10/07/2021

I think the Korean pine needle tea isn't potent enough to help detoxifying your system. You should look for the oil instead, it can be ingested. I take about 8 drops directly under my tongue without any problem (of course it wouldn't taste too pleasant for some people).
