I often get emails asking what one can do nutritionally to help save us from being infected by covid-19. I'm a slow learner, but things are beginning to come together.
Recently, I sent out an update, Why Glutathione is Important in Fighting Morgellons Disease 1/24/2021. It would also be normal to wonder how it stacks up against Covid-19, but I never thought to ask that question. Fortunately, Angie ran across some research published back in May with those answers. A pubmed study,"Endogenous Deficiency of Glutathione as the Most Likely Cause of Serious Manifestations and Death in COVID-19 Patients" answers that question. It states, "This finding suggests that the virus cannot actively replicate at higher levels of cellular glutathione, and therefore, milder clinical symptoms are observed with lower viral loads".
This study was published back in May 28,2020 and the media hasn't gotten hold of it yet or it was too difficult for them to comprehend. The study goes into the value of glutathione preventing oxidative stress in the cells themselves as being the primary benefit. I also know that low blood oxygen levels become an issue with covid -19 and one of the benefits of sufficient glutathione levels is that it increases the ability of hemoglobin to carry oxygen.
But, don't run out and buy glutathione supplements from your health food store. Remember, they are reduced glutathione and you'll be lucky if your stomach lets 20 or 30% of the glutathione get past it into the bloodstream. But, even so, that's not where you want the glutathione, you want it inside your cellular structure and glutathione does not pass from the bloodstream into the cells. Increasing blood levels of glutathione only keeps what glutathione is made inside the cell in the cell. But still if your cells are not making enough glutathione, you'll still be deficient. So glutathione supplements, shots, or patches, or anything that gets it into your blood is insufficient and most likely will be a problem with the King DietSM as well.
The goooood news is that we have MaxOne which is not reduced glutathione but a bonded combination of D-Ribose and L-Cysteine, that gets past the stomach and into the cellular structure where the L-Cysteine (the limited amino acid) combines with glutamate and glycine to create glutathione. And, just two capsules, (daily recommended amount) boosts glutathione levels by about 270%.
With Morgellons, in the beginning you can take up to 8 per day and then taper back to 2 per day. Now with this new information, I'm raising my 2 caps per day to 4 caps per day until this pandemic is history and keeping my fingers crossed.
What else can you do? Remember, GarcillinTM (allicin) is a natural antibiotic, anti viral, anti protozoan, and anti fungal per Wikipedia. The recommended daily amount is one capsule. I take two per day to control herpes along with L-Lysine, and now I'm raising it to three or four a day until the pandemic is bye bye.
Well, if you're going to do the above, as I am, you also want to make sure you have the fundamental supplements as well and that's our multivitamin and ionic minerals or at least the regular minerals. You can save a few dollars with our Collembola/Lyme pack and order extra Garcillin and MaxOne separately.
What else to do? Vitamin D has been found very helpful and important. Maybe 15 or 20,000 units a day. You might need to search for a tablet form as I don't know if the liquid form in capsules will be compatible with the diet. I've been taking 15,000 units a day of the liquid caps since I no longer need be concerned about the diet.
Please note this is not medical advice or a guarantee that you or I will not contract Covid-19. It's been what's reported by others to support in building immune functioning.
If one does contract covid, it would be prudent to look into the following asap or maybe in advance as a plan.
First do what you can to save your lungs. Read "Cleaning Your Respiratory System of Morgellons" 1/10/2021. It goes into the use of a nebulizer, essential oils, how use NG MouthWash to gargle, humidification, and so on.
Secondly, I was emailed this protocol today from one of the vitamin companies that I'm on their mailing list. The protocol was devised by a Dr. MuCollough who also suffered and over-came covid.
Again, I make no claims, am only passing along this information for you to discuss with your doctor.
- Ivermectin – 12 mg for three days.
- Hydroxychloroquine – 200 mg twice a day early in his disease. He says that taking this drug early on produces better results than waiting until the illness becomes more serious.8
- Vitamin D3 - 5,000 IU a day. Several studies show that Vitamin D may help the body fight COVID.9
- COVID sucks all the vitamin D out of your body. While sick you can take up to 6,000 iu---2,000 3 times a day. It also sucks out all the potassium and magnesium from your body, so add more of those in.
- Aspirin - 325 mg a day.
- Aspirin (and excedrin) help with the massive headache that can accompany covid and also help prevent the blood clots that are common.
- Vitamin C - 3,000 mg a day. (However, Dr. Klinghardt recommends at least 5,000 mg of water soluble vitamin C daily. You can also take up to 10,000 mg in a day. When it causes a gastric reaction your body is saturated and back off.)
- Zinc sulfate - 220 mg a day. Zinc supports the immune system and zinc lozenges have helped treat the common cold. [This is a high dose of zinc, appropriate only for a brief period when battling a virus.]
- Azithromycin - 250 mg twice a day. Azithromycin is an antibiotic that kills bacterial infections and can have anti-viral effects. Azithromycin makes the hydroxychloroquine much more effective. They should be taken together.
- LDN is also thought to minimize the symptoms. However, it has to be ordered from a compound pharmacy and may take a week to receive it.
- Melatonin (10 mg 1-3 times a day) and Mucinex twice a day
- Nano Glutathione to boost blood levels of glutathione (sublingual for 90 sec, but need to spit out afterwards as not compatible with the diet)
- Our Dr. Su would also be available for anyone who needs prescriptions for meds to fight covid.
He writes, "For the most part, I'm using ivermectin, both prophylactically, for treatment, and for long COVID too. I'm commonly offering zithromax with the ivermectin; most people are taking me up on that.
- I also use thymosin alpha 1 peptide, but that's a matter of how fast people can get it - by mail (compounding pharmacy), it'll take about a week, so not as helpful for many people out of my local area where we have some in the office. But even if for immune boosting, it's still an option (ie, pre-infection).
- I have a variety of other non-Rx options I may use - ones people are familiar with: melatonin, vit C, quercetin, zinc... I also use IMV V-II-III from Beyond Balance, which has been touted by practitioners to be of benefit."
- Two things that help the gastro issues, famotidne, and Garden of Life CBD Probiotics Inflammatory Response, Digestive and immune Support
- Note that if you boost glutathione it recycles Vitamin C so you may not need 8,000 mg per day as noted abov
Dr Oz also recommends antibody therapy as soon as possible, but may difficult to obtain since it is IV therapy.
