Update on approaches you can take to deal with this virus.
Considering the national health emergency, I am sending you today steps you can take to keep yourself and your family healthy.
Research shows these things outlined below are the most powerful ways to protect yourself.
Keep in mind that the major cause of death in COVID-19 cases, as well as influenza, is the cytokine storm, which is a very destructive, hyperintense immune reaction that persists long after the virus is eliminated.
The lungs are literally destroyed by the person’s own immune system and not the virus itself.
Here are 5 steps I advise you to take to supplement your diet:
1 Beta-glucan: Take 500mg once a day for three days in a row and then after that twice a week — once on Monday and again on Friday. Take on an empty stomach and eat nothing for 45 minutes afterwards. Do this until this “crisis” passes. If you are ill with the virus, continue this until you feel well for a week, then take the beta-glucan once a week, every week. Immune stimulation can also improve immunity in the highest-risk patients, such as elderly with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, hypertension, and cancer.
2 Astragalus: Take one 500mg capsule twice a day with a meal. For known infections, take two capsules twice to three times a day. This is a powerful immune stimulator for anti-viral immunity and it powerfully inhibits the cytokine storm.
3 Nano-curcumin: Take two 500mg capsules three times a day if exposed to an infected person and one capsule three times a day with meals otherwise. This is a very powerful protectant against cytokine storm, the phenomenon that kills people from the virus and flu viruses. Careful research shows that it dramatically blocks the pathological damage by cytokine storm reactions and also powerfully prevents post-infection pulmonary fibrosis.
4 Nano-vitamin C: If one is exposed to an infected person, take two capsules three times a day. If sick, take five capsules four times a day. Just for protection, otherwise, one capsule three times a day. If you are getting sick, take four capsules four times a day. The illness usually last only one or at most two days and then you recover.
5 Vitamin D3: Take 5000 IU a day every day with food. This plays a big role in reducing COVID-19 infections. Most elderly (more than 80%) are severely deficient in vitamin D3. Keeping them indoors makes this even worse.
There are other steps you may also consider:
1 EGCG: There is a new nano-EGCG which can be taken as one capsule twice a day with a meal if you are exposed to an infected person or if you become sick. EGCG and resveratrol (pterostilbene) both have antiviral properties in that they block entry of certain viruses into cells.
2Do not lower your temperature unless it rises above 104 degrees F. If you have seizures, keep temp no more than 102F. Do not take Tylenol or NSAIDs. Keep very warm at all times.
3Do not exercise until you are completely well for at least five to seven days.
4 Avoid all alcohol (and be wary of immune-suppressing drugs; statins are powerful immune-suppressing drugs).
5Do not smoke or use nicotine products — nicotine is a powerful immune suppressant.
6Sugar and high-glycemic carbohydrates are immune suppressing.
7Avoid omega-6 oils (peanut, corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, and canola oils).
8Increase your intake of DHA omega-3 to 2000mg a day. Avoid EPA as it suppresses immunity.
9Avoid glutamate — soy protein and protein isolates, hydrolyzed vegetable proteins, protein isolates or concentrates, MSG, natural flavors, sodium or potassium caseinate, autolyzed yeast, stock and broth. All these contain high levels of glutamate and can increase tissue damage.
10Take prebiotics and probiotics every other day.
