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.

Hi James, You are correct. Of particular importance in salt is Chloride (CL). A certain chemical, hypochlorous acid (HOCL) found in bleach, kills coronaviruses. Cells lining the nose and throat can produce HOCL when they are bathed with chloride. 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.” White blood cells also produce HOCL, which plays a critical role in the initial immune response to a variety of infections, including COVID-19. One of the easiest ways to accomplish the exposure to HOCL is to use sodium chloride, better known as salt or saline. The more chloride presented to the cells, the more HOCL they generate. Table salt or sea salt contains chloride which kills coronaviruses. Sea salt would be beneficial for people with high blood pressure. Note: The RDA for sodium for an average adult is 1,300 mg with a tolerable UL Intake per day of 2,300 mg. Sodium chloride or table salt is approximately 40% sodium. 1 teaspoon salt = 2,300 mg sodium. Do not exceed 1 teaspoon salt over the course of a day.

This type of remedy is right up my alley. Simple and easy. I ordered the chewable calcium carbonate and I happen to have salt on hand. Thank You

James, Do you mean put a gram salt (at one time ) and let salt melt in your mouth and chew carbonate at the same time?

Great post, thank you!

James, So you ingest the salt or spit it out (since you said “taste the salt”)? And what about calcium powder from a capsule?

Hi James, What kind of chewable calcium does one use, and where can we buy it? I take calcium-magnesium capsules, but that must be different. Margeaux

James, Thank you for the great tip!
