The world is changing rapidly in front of all of us. As we learn more about the coronavirus the information is quickly evolving on both how to prevent and treat this virus. We all know it is vital to practice proper hygiene by thoroughly washing our hands properly, avoid touching our face and practicing the recommended social distancing. But there is much more you can do to protect and to treat yourself if you become symptomatic. Natural medicine offers many options to support your immune system and to provide beneficial gut health. Mainstream news is not telling you this information.
In last month’s blog, I discussed Vitamin C (powder or liposomal), LDM-100 (lomatium), Sovereign Silver, and Herbal AloeForce to support a healthy immune system. Additional recommendations are Vitamin D3, Elderberry, Zinc, Vitamin A, Iodine, Selenium, Quercetin, Astragalus, N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC), Proteolytic Enzymes, Oregano Oil, Thieves, Glutathione, Magnesium, Activated Charcoal, Essential Fatty Acids, and Super Tonic.
We now know that the coronavirus is an enveloped virus, meaning it has a protective membrane composed of lipids that can be dissolved by the herb astragalus. Energ-iodine which is the iodine we recommend is capable of killing ALL classes of pathogens including viruses. Proteolytic enzymes address fibrosis. The amino acid N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is supportive of lung health which is targeted in advanced cases of coronavirus. Essential fatty acids are able to kill viruses and block replication. Since the coronavirus is not heat-sensitive it is recommended to drink hot water frequently and to use an infrared sauna if available. Keep the throat moist if exposed. Zinc blocks or slows down the replication of the virus and supports the immune system. We know zinc inhibits the SARS-CoV virus and possibly will inhibit the coronavirus. Charcoal acts as a binder to get the virus out of the system. Avoid Tylenol and Advil which may make the virus worse.
Two other important recommendations are baking soda and a homeopathic remedy. According to Dr. Mark Sircus, the coronavirus is pH sensitive. It will not survive in an alkaline or balanced pH system. Baking soda is capable of raising the pH rapidly making it ideal to treat acute cases. Start with a half teaspoon stirred in water once or twice a day. Not only is baking soda effective but very inexpensive.
We have a homeopathic remedy made by a local practitioner called Viral Immune Support. This safe and effective remedy includes the signature of the coronavirus along with other homeopathic ingredients that are capable of addressing symptoms. It also includes the imprint of Bach Flower essences to address emotional components such as fear, anxiety, hope, love and survival issues. This remedy may be used as a preventative and to treat symptoms.
Information from Europe reports that the off label drug Chloroquine is showing promise treating the symptoms of the coronavirus. Chloroquine is an anti-malaria drug. I suggest the homeopathic remedy Cinchona instead which has no side effects. Use the 30C potency if you are presenting symptoms. Ask for more information on how to use Cinchona properly.
Don’t forget the importance of gut health! We recommend the probiotic JUST THRIVE, along with eating fermented foods such as sauerkraut and to include sufficient fiber.
