We strongly recommend individuals supplement with Vitamin D3 and K2 as a preventative measure, both for the general flu and especially to help protect against infection from Sars-CoV-2.

I've long believed that adequate levels of vitamin D in the body protect against acute viral infections.  However, I have come across individuals who have supplemented with D, and yet have still come down with pretty severe case of the flu.  What gives?  Is the information wrong, or are there more elements and variables at play?

I used to believe that supplementing with a good D/K product was enough, without giving it much thought.  It turns out, though, that some people-- maybe even a lot of people-- might need to take as much as 10,000 units daily (temporarily!) in order to reach ideal levels of Vitamin D (and cofactors) in the body. 

"Traditionally", most people only supplement with 1-2K units... So, it's no wonder that some people might still be at greater risk for getting ill.

I personally thought my 1,000 units of D, along with at least 30 minutes out in the Las Vegas sun, would do the trick.  It wasn't until I got tested that I realized my levels were still far too low!  But, that is the beauty of real functional medicine.  You can test to get an accurate baseline.

Therefore, it is strongly advisable that individuals get tested to determine how much Vitamin D to supplement with in order to achieve "levels" between 50 ug/ml and 60 ug/ml, while maintaining levels below 80 ug/ml.  Home testing kits are available.

Please review the following charts, provided by "Grassroots Health", which document the conclusions of a study done in Asia, which was compiled from studying data taken from three different hospitals.  All test subjects had their vitamin D levels tested having been admitted to the hospital, with varying degrees of severity of the COVID-19 infection:



As this limited, but statistically significant data shows, nearly all of those with higher levels of vitamin D generally had far less severe cases of the illness.

The second chart (below)  shows that only 13% of the individuals tested (all with COVID-19) had the recommended levels of Vitamin D (greater than 40 ng/ml).  This is a serious problem!


So, now, how to supplement?

Dr. Mercola, for example, has a suitable supplement, with 5,000 IU of Vitamins D3 & 180 mcg of K2.  Some people might need one capsule, others may TEMPORARILY need to two.  Other supplements out there dose with 1,000 or 2,000 units.

The best action?  Don't guess, test.  Home test kits (finger prick blood test) cost around $80-100.  We don't currently know enough about how these tests are conducted to have an educated opinion on what company would be the best choice.  Luckily, it's not rocket science, just choose a reputable company/lab, or check with your doctor!

If you have to guess to start with, you could start with one 5,000 unit dose per day for a period of time, and then do a home test to check your levels. 

DO NOT PANIC DOSE with Vitamin D, overdosing can cause kidney failure. 

If Dr. Mercola's product of 5,000 units of D (single daily dose) turned out to be an actual serious PROBLEM due to the high dosage level, we probably would have heard about it by now.

Some individuals can't seem to believe that something as simple as Vitamin D can have such a big impact on health.  I understand!  Devil's advocates like to point out that this is just one single study.  That is true!

Therefore, on the science reference page ( https://www.earthcures.org/forum/index.php/topic,175.0.html ), we've added an abundance of research material (influenza) which lends credence to the idea of using Vitamin D in a preventative manner for respiratory viral infections.  These studies, some of them massive in scope, were of course NOT done with COVID-19, but with influenza and pneumonia.

The truth is, nobody knows exactly what is going to work with this new coronavirus.  However, we have a whole human history dealing with respiratory virii, both pandemic outbreaks and "regular" seasonal "flus".

See the page below which outlines all of the pages we have exploring COVID-19:

Welcome to Part 2 of our "Rumor Mill" project.  Don't miss Part 1.  Just because it is a "rumor" doesn't make it not true!  We don't include it if we don't feel it has significant implications!

Single-blind, controlled study done in China shows statistically significant improvement in patient outcome (less mortality) when critical care level patients added alpha lipoic acid to the treatment program.

This is true, a pre-peer review paper has been released by the team of researching medical doctors who put this study together.

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.04.15.20066266v1

For people who want to study an extensive and well thought out "plant based" (only) treatment regime for COVID-19, I highly recommend studying the work done by Stephen Harold Buhner.  It is excellent and very comprehensive:

https://www.stephenharrodbuhner.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/coronavirus-1.pdf

What it Means

"Result: Nine patients were randomized to placebo group and 8 patients were randomized to ALA group."

I could never do this kind of research (excluding the control group), although I do appreciate the value that it brings!

The ~37% reduction in mortality may at first seem "lack luster", but we have to ask the question, "what if intervention had occurred PRIOR to the critical care level of this disease?  Could it have changed the trajectory of the entire illness?  How protective would the ALA have been?  There is no easy answer to such questions!

OR, perhaps the numbers are misleading, as one commenter pointed out that ***three*** patients in the ALA group were later given ventilator care, and that may have skewed the numbers.  Probably not, because we can assume that the control group was given comparable treatment when necessary!

The great thing is:  ALA is a very valuable supplement anyway. 

FYI:  ALA is a key ingredient in our advanced detoxification protocol (not published publicly for safety considerations):

(Liposomal Glutathione, liposomal ALA, liposomal vitamin C) + NAC + (the sodium version of EDTA) + systemic enzyme therapy + ozone steam or full spectrum infrared sauna + red light therapy (add clay baths to help finish the cleanup work)....  definitely NOT safe for people unless they've done a full elimination diet and then a permanent diet change, a 90 day digestive system detox, plus a 60 basic heavy metal cleanse first!

Warrington Hospital in Cheshire (UK) avoids the use of ventilators in favor of modified "sleep apnea" machines.

Doctors, saying they learned from the mistakes of their colleagues in Italy, start the use of the modified sleep apnea CPAC machines as respiratory failure intervention "early on" in order to try to avoid ventilator use, often times immediately upon admitting patients with respiratory issues.

What it Means

Doctors report much faster recovery times with no need for intubation and the risk associated with forced respiration via ventilators.

Original story:  https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-hospital-cuts-covid-19-death-rates-with-black-boxes-for-sleep-disorder-11977789

A recent study shows that taking adequate amounts of potassium reduces the severity of COVID-19 symptoms.

A study of 125 patients in a China showed that almost all COVID-19 sufferers experienced Hypokalemia, which is low levels of potassium ions in the blood stream.

What it Means

In our "preventative" concept protocol, we already recommend taking a balanced macro mineral supplement, as well as a trace mineral supplement.  Unlike some minerals, potassium is pretty safe to use by itself, although it is usually recommended to take a balanced macro mineral supplement with includes calcium, magnesium and potassium.   Astute researchers, however, may look up how to use potassium hydroxide as a water additive to raise blood serum levels quickly.  Doing this method must be done with extreme care.  Potassium hydroxide (often available USP at 50% in water) is very corrosive and dangerous to use without proper dilution.

New clinical study conducted by Oxford University shows that a low dose steroid therapy reduces COVID-19 deaths by 30% (those having been placed on ventilators), by preventing a cytokine storm from occurring:

https://www.bbc.com/news/health-53061281 - The drug, Dexamethasone, is very affordable and widely available.

Utilizing grain alcohol and EIS to Cure COVID-19

This is an important discovery, something we have been talking about for a long time.  For the toughest lung infections, the "old timer's" would use grain alcohol to quickly resolve any flem and congestion issues.  This is well known to be a very effective method.

What the old timer's would use, is (very specifically) RUM.  They would soak a sponge, and huff the vapors.  This works very, very quickly to resolve even the worst cases of congestion/fluid build up.

One individual's sister was slick with COVID-19 for a couple of months.  The aggressive use of EIS/CS in a nebulizer was not resolving the issue (but probably still preventing the illness from progressing to late stage).

The individual did a different treatment protocol, using pure vodka mixed with colloidal silver, and sipping on it over a period of one hour.  She did this three times a day:

The formula was 50 ml CS mixed with (25%) 12.5 ml of 40 % alcohol in a glass. She sipped every 5 minutes, keeping it under the tongue 2-3 minutes, until the glass was empty in about one hour. She did that 3 times a day. And some extra pure CS in between. And she continued for safety's sake with one glass a day another 5 days after she became well.

We currently believe that using rum, and NOT vodka, and mixing it with EIS/CS, and using it in a nebulizer would be far more effective much quicker.  The problem is, nobody knows the best concentration to use, or how much is required.  IT IS EASY TO GET ALCOHOL POISONING by nebulizing too much grain alcohol!  We can't stress that enough!

So, perhaps, using the oral administration route, was a wise decision!

The Role of Enzymes in Developing Strategies to Treat COVID-19

New, novel research has been focusing on the human proteins affected by the virus, and enzymes that the virus exploits.  This has resulted in some excellent end research, including the use of existing drugs to successfully address the illness:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/06/26/coronavirus-grows-tentacles-inside-cells-providing-clue-treatment/3265085001/

This research article also delves deeper into how the virus operates in the human body, at the cellular level.

'Theoretical' data study done in vitro on SARS-Cov-2 demonstrates that turmeric, neem, ashwagandha and black pepper should be effective at protecting the body from COVID-19

Using a fascinating data-based approach, this peer reviewed study done in India, used a wide database of herbs to isolate those Ayurvedic herbs that should be the most effective against the virus.

Please refer to this page for links and important information regarding our information on respiratory viral infections and COVID-19.

[This page last updated on 5/06/20:  Los Alamos study added to the "pneumonia" page]

Note that all of the links below contain important information not located elsewhere.  Please review all of the information.

Please note that we do not provide actual recommendations, these are all just conceptual protocol ideas that researchers are exploring based on available and emerging independent research.  All of this is provided for research purposes only:


For example, the "Rumor Mill" post is important because it includes actionable information from other researchers.  An example would be either using H2O2 in a nebulizer, or using copper ascorbate to treat COVID-19 at symptom onset.  This information is not in our concept protocol pages, because we don't have any real research experience, can't predict side effects/detox reactions, and can't know exact dosing details.  However, just because we don't list it as a primary consideration, doesn't mean that it shouldn't be!

Another example is the scientific research page which provides supporting research.  There is a ton of valuable information presented by researchers if you have the time to click on the links and read the material!

We will try to update this page when anything changes, and note the "edit" date below, so that one does not have to continue to view these "living documents" over and over again!

https://www.earthcures.org/forum/index.php/topic,174.0.html

Note that I've been contacted by individuals stating that some cannot tolerate 3-5 grams of ascorbic acid, and so they are not using it.

Such individuals should read about the studies suggesting liposomal vitamin C may even be superior to IV therapy... it is certainly more tolerable than any form of water soluble C.  Anyone with some basic, rudimentary research and equipment can transform water soluble ascorbic acid into fat soluble "liposomal" vitamin C, which will, among other things, help prevent the digestive system irritation common with ascorbic acid.

An important topic, COVID-19 specialist MD at a New York City Hospital notices that COVID-19 is ***not**** presenting with regular pneumonia as all of the doctors and medical staff have been told; furthermore, the use of a ventilator use be hurting much more than it is helping (even though there DOES come a time where there is no choice).

I've even spoken to nurses in California who have changed their treatment protocol, based on this information, to using a ventilator as a last resort.

Latest update includes more hard data on the mutation of Sars-CoV-2:

New York City MD:  Not Pneumonia, Oxygen Starvation (the hemoglobin link) [Updated 5/06/2020]:

The most recent updates are very important, as there are conflicting assumptions as to the pathology of COVID-19 and what it means.  Is it the destruction of hemoglobin causing oxygen starvation, or the fluid/mucus, inflammation and/or scar tissue (fibrotic tissue).  Why is this becoming a blood-attacking and blood-vessel attacking illness, and what does THAT mean?  Why aren't CPAPs being used when they are so amazingly effective and can be used much earlier with greater recovery rates?

This post is very important, either way, the implications are serious!

PLEASE NOTE: [Modified last on 5/09/2020]  This post/thread is about what we are hearing from others.  We do not recommend anyone do anything here, nor do we advise that you take the information as real or at face value.  This is here, because I assume many people, like myself, want to hear what is going on so that I can draw my own conclusions.  I want access to the creativity and raw information being discovered and I want to hear about all of the ideas being explored, in an uncensored manner.  I don't need a baby sitter! I believe that there is ALWAYS value in exploring ideas, even if the ideas don't pan out.;)

HOWEVER, and IN FACT, if the information is not part of our own primary concept protocols or information about coronavirus (see the main topic threads), then there is probably a good reason for it!


Copper is a Cure for COVID-19

We've been hearing from more than one outlet that copper formulations are turning out to be very effective with COVID-19.  Copper works similarly to silver.  That said, copper can be very problematic to dose due to current bio-burden levels, issues of toxicity, and how excess copper effects the absorption of other minerals (like zinc).

That said, we have accounts of copper ascorbate (must make it yourself) halting infections very rapidly, when used orally...  Often used in conjunction with "standard" vitamin C formulations.

We have also heard of a case of late stage COVID-19 halted in its tracks with a "colloidal copper", which was, in actually, mostly an EIC/Copper solution (ions) made via electrolysis.

What Does it Mean?

It means that these metal ions known to have strong antimicrobial properties show great promise.

There is even a case to made about using both together:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27015373

Furthermore, there is a case to be made for using small amounts of copper orally (1 tsp - 1 tbs), in conjunction with using EIS/Silver formulations with a nebulizer.

However, there is no way for anyone at this time to tell anyone else what a safe, effective concentration or dose would be.

People are getting "cured", recovering, and getting sick again!

We are hearing this all over the place, both with heavy hitting "natural" remedies, and reports from Wuhan (for example).

What Does it Mean?

This most likely means that treatment interventions are working to help this disease, but the immune system is not producing enough antibodies before symptoms subside.

It is QUITE possible that the virus still exists, replicating out of the "sight" of the immune system...  for example, in lesions existing in the lungs, or even in the nasal passageways.  We are hearing that it can take up to five days for a virus particle to penetrate a cell membrane in order to reproduce.

This also means that even when a person starts to feel better, they should still keep up with preventative measures and treatments, and pay careful attention going forward, for at least a few weeks, maybe longer.

Symptoms that are recurring, signaling a renewed infection?  Loss off taste, loss of smell, fever, sore throat and cough.  Any combination thereof.

The idea is to keep diligent.  The idea is that eventually the body will produce enough antibodies so that the immune system can protect itself.

Anti-Malaria Drugs (chloroquine class) are working great!  They aren't working at all!  They aren't working and causing terrible side effects! They only work with zinc!  They only work in conjunction with antibiotics!

Reports, clinical studies, and publications are all over the place here.

What Does it Mean?

It is possible that the therapy hasn't been perfected, that there are those out there sabotaging research efforts, that research testing is not being done properly and skewing results... or maybe some strange combination of all of the above.

Bottom line:  There is yet a real and comprehensive, trusted source of information out there regarding drug therapies involving chloroquine.  I would not rely upon this drug therapy to save my life, but I wouldn't discount it either!

COVID-19 Patients, Oxygen Starved, are Being Cured with Nitric Oxide

Massachusetts General Hospital is reporting good results by giving oxygen-starved patients, via inhalation therapy, a drug which boosts nitric oxide levels.  The drug, with a low risk profile, has been used to treat oxygen starved babies in the past.

What Does it Mean?

This is true, but the effectiveness of the therapy still needs to be proven!

Some people now believe that while SARS-CoV-2 attaches to the ACE2 cell receptors in the lungs (and in the gut), that the oxygen starvation is the results of the virus attacking oxygen-carrying hemoglobin as a food source (probably iron).

While this would not alter the treatment ideology of treating the lungs as a primary infection site, it does alter what can be done to help individuals who are experiencing oxygen starvation.

Interested individuals should take this seriously.  Our recommendation of using the "Hot Shot Brain Fog Slayer" juice tonic formulation also improves NOS blood levels (via the medicinal high heat cayenne pepper).

There is also merit to the idea the NOS supplements could be used early on in COVID-19 presentation, including beet root extract and similar NOS-boosting extracts and agents... But THIS information IS indeed RUMOROUS and has not been tried nor tested, to our knowledge.  The best strategy is still not to let COVID-19 progress to the point of serious respiratory distress.

Ivermectin is a widely used anti-parasitic drug that inhibits SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19

This is true, although nobody knows if it will work in the body yet.  This drug, however, is very widely used and understood, and exists on the WHO's list of "essential medicines".  The drug is FDA approved, and It is available for horses at most vets.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0166354220302011

What Does it Mean?

If it works as well in humans as it does in the test tubes at inhibiting the expression of COVID-19, it might be able to arrest the illness quickly and safely, potentially within 48 hours of administration.  Drugs like this would likely be best effective when used earlier in the presentation of the illness, before a critical amount of actual damage is done to the lungs and the body's hemoglobin supply.

Nebulizing three percent hydrogen peroxide (3% H2O2) will stop the Coronavirus (COVID-19) DEAD in its tracks!

Dr. Mercola, and others, are touting this as a miracle therapy, citing the works of Dr. Thomas Levy, and Dr. Charles Farr.  The idea is to do this immediately upon symptom presentation, and it will prevent the infection from taking hold.

Now, those familiar with my work probably already realize three things: 

1.  I purchase H2O2 in 35% gallon jugs, as well as quart sizes of 12% (for mixing convenience to reach 6%)...

2.  I've been using hydrogen peroxide regularly for all sorts of things for about 15 years, and I love the stuff!  I have a zillion uses for various combinations of silver and H2O2.

3.  I almost NEVER publicly write about it, nor do I suggest people actually do hydrogen peroxide therapy.  Privately, I help people who ***already have the desire to do it*** all of the time.

What I BEG that everyone do right now-- today--- if one is planning on using this as a treatment strategy-- is to nebulize 3% H2O2 now, and watch what happens.  I estimate that about 80% of people are headed for a major freak out.  I've seen the detox reaction of individuals nebulizing .5% concentrations of H2O2 become nearly bed-ridden for a few days.  The toxicity reaction of H2O2 atomizing who knows WHAT garbage presently residing in the lungs is among the worst reactions of any therapy that I've explored.

Even I had a terrible reaction when I first did it about 18 years ago.  At the time, I was a smoker.  I did a MASSIVE daily protocol to protect my lungs while I worked to figure out how to overcome this addictive affliction.  I had a regular doctor even swear that I wasn't a smoker at all.  Today, nobody would even be able to tell that I was ever a smoker.  That took a lot of work, a lot of liver cleansing, a lot of blood cleansing to keep healthy and work to protect the lungs.

Even so, about two minutes after nebulizing a small amount of hydrogen peroxide, my heart started pounding so badly that I collapsed.  My vision disappeared.  In a few short seconds, I thought I was going to be dead.  My vision started to clear even though my heart continued to pound.  Instantly I knew what a fool I'd been!

I was experiencing a nicotine overdose.  I literally sat very still in a silent pose for about 20 minutes.  Finally, my heartbeat began to return to normal.  I was OK!

Boy, did I learn my lesson.  Eventually, I carefully acclimated my lungs to H2O2 therapy.  With subsequent research, I learned that the body can go through THREE very distinct and very severe detox reactions.  1) Cleansing the lungs, 2) then H2O2 concentration starts to build up in the blood stream, and causes a blood detox reaction, and finally 3) High enough concentrations reach the liver to hammer the person with a hard hitting liver detox reaction.

What Does it Mean?

Do you know what is currently built up in your lungs?  Do you live the city?  Do you do regular cardio or breathing exercises to clear your lungs?  No?

YOU NEVER KNOW what kind of a reaction your are going to get the first time enough builds up to cause a detox reaction!

Now, can you imagine someone with lung conditions and diabetes, terrified because they are starting to hallucinate because of the COVID-19 fever, so in a panic, they reach into the medicine cabinet and grab a brown bottle of 3% H2O2, and nebulize like crazy?

H2O2 is an awesome therapy for the sinuses, for the lungs, for general detox via the oral protocols...  But this is something you want to gently acclimate the body to BEFORE you get ill.

Please, you want the body to be WELL acclimated to using H2O2, and you want the pathogens to be taken completely by surprise.  Not the other way around (the body in so much shock and panic that stress hormones cause the immune system to reek havoc on the mind and body).

A hospital in Israel-- for compassionate use-- has been testing stem cell therapy on individuals very ill "ICU" patients.

This appears to be true.  Doctors have been using stem cells derived from placenta, and they report a 0% mortality rate for those treated, in a situation where the expected outcome for each patient was probable death.  They only report moderate improvement (in some patients) in lung function due to the therapy, however.

What Does it Mean?

While this is very interesting, and shows that stem cell therapy research is progressing, it won't likely make a difference in the grand scheme of things, at least not in the short term.  This is not something that could be rolled out to the masses.   We also want to mention it because it could be that SCAMMERS/FRAUDS might try to profit off of this research as they almost always do.  Be wary of internet websites trying to sell stem cell therapy, and even so called "clinics".  There is a massive amount of criminal fraud out there in the stem cell "industry"!

Clay and sea salt baths help COVID-19 patients in recovery.

We're starting to get these reports, however, this is nothing new to us.  While clay baths shouldn't be considered an actual TREATMENT for respiratory infections, once a person is on the road to recovery, we've always received reports that doing a nice warm clay and sea salt bath helps a person feel much better.  In particular, individuals report that clay baths ease the lingering respiratory distress people often experience, sometimes for days, after the acute phase of the illness has passed, and when the body is recovering.

What Does it Mean?

This supports what I've noticed over many years of observation.  Clay doesn't always act as a cure, but it usually makes just about any situation at least a little better.  There is just something special about natural clay, sea minerals, and water!

Dr. Browstein is successfully treating COVID-19 patients using iodine and ozone therapy!

Dr. Brownstein runs a holistic medicine clinic, and HAS been treating COVID-19 patients in the parking lot of his clinic.  He recommends things like Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and uses iodine and ozone to treat even the sickest of his patients.  He currently reports having treated 85 COVID-19 (or suspected cases of COVID-19) successfully.  Since he and his staff can only do ozone therapy at his clinic, he recommends  nebulizing hydrogen peroxide along with iodine.

What Does it Mean?

While we prefer using the iodine, for safety considerations, with the salt pipe, and hence suggest using H2O2 separately... it is becoming very clear that the combination is proving to be very successful:  Bio-oxidative therapy, along with iodine and nutritional support (such as plenty of zinc, vitamin D, vitamin C, etc.... see our concept protocol posts).

https://www.drbrownstein.com/85-chm-covid-patients:-zero-hospitalizations-and-no-deaths/

In fact, ozone therapy is being trialed "officially" in more and more hospitals around the word.  See the following links for further research:


36 patients treated with ozone therapy just prior to having to make the choice to intubate:

https://theibizan.com/ozone-therapy-proving-successful-in-covid-19-patients/

The first patient:

"A 49-year-old man who had already required ICU admission was deteriorating on the ward. He had deteriorated to the point that he required oxygen at the highest concentration and yet it was oxygenating his lungs poorly. Intubation and connection to a ventilator was planned, but surprisingly, after the first session of Ozone therapy, the improvement was significant and oxygen requirements could be decreased.

Dr. Alberto Hernández explained that “the improvement after the first session of Ozone treatment was spectacular. We were surprised, his respiratory rate normalised, his oxygen levels increased, and we were able to stop supplying him with as much oxygen since the patient was able to oxygenate himself. To our surprise, when we carried out an analytical control, we observed how Ferritin, an analysis determination that is being used as a prognostic marker in this disease, not only had not followed the upward trend, but had decreased significantly; that decline continued in the following days. This result encouraged us to administer it to other patients who are following the same improvement as our first patient. “"

A study of 18% of COVID-19 deaths in Italy reveals that almost all fatalities were people with pre-existing conditions.

The noteworthy offenders?  Heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes.

Dr. Mercola has a nice write up:  https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/04/13/how-to-defeat-coronavirus.aspx

What Does it Mean?

This is great news, right?  Well, yes and no. 

Many people don't realize it, but at least 60% of the American population lives with chronic disease that may significantly affect their COVID-19 mortality risk factors.  I see so many people "think" that they are perfectly healthy when in reality they are obviously and visually noticeably ten to thirty years in to progressive, chronic degenerative, disease.

Some health care ICU workers are placing patients on their stomach instead of intubating them (using a ventilator). 

Reportedly, this is saving lives by allowing more oxygen saturation in the blood from parts of the lungs that have been under-utilized. 

What Does it Mean?

Prone positioning (and even other physical poses designed by respiratory therapists to improve lung efficiency) may be more effective than ventilators in some situations, and without the risk of lung tissue damage.  Oxygen saturation levels, in some cases, have been reported to go from 85% to 95%.

Cuba approves the use of a homeopathic medication as a viable treatment option for COVID-19 infections.

http://www.radiorebelde.cu/english/news/cuba-to-officially-use-new-homeopathic-medicine-against-covid-19-20200407/

 PrevengHo® Vir is the medication, and it is used, reportedly, for the ..."prevention of influenza, dengue and other emerging viral infections, recommending its use in conditions of epidemiological risk..."

What Does it Mean?

We see no included data on usage statistics, or whether or not it has been effective!

Dr. William Wong (Website:  "Dr. Wong's Essentials") recommends systemic enzymes for the treatment of COVID-19

Dr. Wong states, in his April 17th "News and Updates:

"While the enzymes can help prevent the virus from attaching to the mitochondrial DNA and replicating we now see the enzymes can also be used during the acute phase of Covid to prevent the formation of lung scar tissue, blood clots and to ameliorate the cytokine storm producing inflammation."

The enzymatic blend that he uses, along with Vitamin C and zinc, includes enterically coated  porcine pancreatin, serrapeptidase, bromelain, and papain.  Specifically, he uses 50,000 units of pancreatin, 50,000 units of amylase, 4,000 units of lipase, 14,000 units (SU) of serrapeptidase, 150 units (GD) of bromelain, and 720,000 units of papain.

Many commercially produced systemic enzyme blends are similar.

What Does it Mean?

We already recommend using Seaprose-S as a vastly superior systemic enzyme for mucus.  There is certainly a case to be made for using a high quality systemic enzyme blend for fibrotic tissue, and there really is no downside to doing so, aside from the expense (avoid using systemic enzymes before surgery, or with medical supervision only if on blood thinning drugs).

For acute conditions, most manufacturers recommend three of "their" capsules, three times daily on an empty stomach.

I think that this video, literally from "ground zero" -- in more ways than one-- is VERY, VERY important.  At the time of this writing, NYC is still the epicenter of COVID-19, with the next wave of "epicenters". following about seven to ten days behind (or so they say).

Pay careful attention to what the ER doctor is describing, and contrast that to the Earthcures recommended treatment strategy.

This doctor lends a great deal of credence to the idea that some strange thick solidifying mucus may be a significant contributing factor to the cause of death, just like the autopsy doctors hinted at in China.

Those ER and ICU doctors and nurses are so out their league it is frightening... even terrifying.

Since the docs from China also indicated that it would take up to 5 days to break down that mucus once patients were admitted to ICU, it is CRITICAL that this be a main priority in order to avoid what would otherwise become the worse ordeal anyone would experience.


UPDATE:  The doctor that shot this video eventually resigned over the hospital's policy on ventilator use.

Here is a "newer" account of this same issue, given to a friend by a nurse working at the same hospital:

The doctor that made the original video questioning how ventilators were being used, eventually resigned over it.

Here is another perspective, I believe from the same hospital.  This is not easy to watch, and I believe that it is 100% authentic:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8262351/Nurse-New-York-claims-city-killing-COVID-19-patients-putting-ventilators.html

If all of this isn't enough to convince a person to take care of one's health and act quickly to AVOID going into the hospital, I don't know what would!

On a related "aside", I read a report from a nurse working in ICU in a California hospital who shared that they have completed changed their ventilator use based on the experience reported coming out of New York.

But, sadly, while CPAP and BiPAP both have proven to be HIGHLY effective and MUCH better than ventilators, many hospitals will not use them because they also risk spreading the virus in aerosol form.

Here is another situation where us not being properly prepared is costing people a great deal of pain, misery and even death.  If hospitals would put in place a policy of converting ICU rooms to negative air flow, properly designed rooms with UV air filtration as well, this would not be an issue.

Would this be expensive?  Comparatively, yes.  But, people are not given the choice, and people are not told the truth at all.

They are simply frightened into accepting forced ventilation as their only treatment option.  Would there be situations where a ventilator would HAVE to be used?  Absolutely most certainly... but not in the same manner as they are being used now, and not as frequently.

I believe that most hospital policies prioritize forced ventilation due to all of the initial reports coming out of Italy, where doctors reported that patient outcomes were GREATLY improved if forced ventilation was used for EARLY intervention.  I truly wonder what the disconnect has been between observations in places like Italy, as composed to places like New York intensive care units.

Also, doctors are getting a 100%+ increase in patient blood oxygen levels (those with low levels due to COVID-19) by using warmed and humidified oxygen via high flow O2 therapy using a simple, non-evasive nose cannulas. 

This can even be tried at home with a good quality oxygen concentrator.  Most have optional humidifier feeds in-line. 

If you have a simple oxygen saturation meter (the "cheap" fingertip monitors that measure blood oxygen saturation and current heart rate), you can do this with no risk.  Everyone should be testing their O2 saturation levels anyway, if at all possible.

The operative idea would be to monitor your O2 levels, and then add the O2 if oxygen saturation drops to below ~90% - 94% (you should have a normal baseline established so that you know what YOUR "normal" O2 saturation level is...before any respiratory distress).

This link documents how UChicago Medicine is using this therapy with great success, rather than turning to ventilators:

https://www.uchicagomedicine.org/forefront/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/uchicago-medicine-doctors-see-truly-remarkable-success-using-ventilator-alternatives-to-treat-covid19

They are not the only medical professionals trying to opt out of early ventilator intervention.  There are a LOT of medical professionals who aren't willing to simply apply failing protocols that they know will likely lead to a high patient mortality rate.  Some are even testing out breathing ozonated saline solution to address the infection:

Activated oxygen therapies always come under attack by the "establishment".  But the truth is, thanks primarily to "early" work of medical researchers like Dr. Bocci in Germany, there is a massive amount of scientific evidence supporting the use of bio-oxidative therapies for all types of infections.  The links below should be considered "experimental"/FYI, as you really need some very good training to use activated oxygen safely.

However, please don't do ozone nebulization for the flu or for any other reason.  High concentrations of medical-grade ozone at the very least severely irritate lung sacs, and CAN cause their destruction leading to scarring.  Ozone in the lungs is not a good idea.  Anyone who has accidentally huffed a bit of highly concentrated ozone usually makes sure that it NEVER happens again.

However, the exact RIGHT concentration of ozone, which is EXTREMELY tiny... in the magnitude of about 0.3 - 0.5 PPM, has been shown to be very effective with a wide range of conditions when used in inhalation therapy, including safely destroy lung cancer cells while living healthy cells alone. 

Ozonating water, and then immediately nebulizing the ozonated water, MAY be an extremely safe and effective treatment.  It may not work well, for many reasons.

However, ozone rectal insufflation, which would be the standard recommended protocol, should be the chosen method, if IV-based ozone therapy is not available.

Dr. Rowen has been treating COVID-19 patients, some of them critically ill, with excellent success:

The case for molecular hydrogen water has already been made by hundreds of independent research papers.  Below is just one worthy of consideration.  Molecular hydrogen water can be used along with every other water modification method that does NOT involve oxidation....  For example, do not use at the same time using ozone therapy or H2O2 therapy.  Use any antioxidants away from any oxidation therapies.  Not that it will cause any actual HARM, the two therapies will simply compete against each other, and we do not want that.

The Hot Shot Brain Fog Slayer herbal tonic formulation is a brain child of decades of exploration into the work of herbalists like Dr. Richard Schulze and Dr. Christopher.  I developed it due to a deep disappointment in results from Dr. Shulze's own formula.  The thing that this formula LACKS, however is B Vitamins, so make certain that one is getting plenty of all of the Vitamin B's elsewhere.

What about the science?  There are so many amazing things about this formulation that it would take a book to explore.  But I will try to add more scientific support as I get time.  To start with, the high heat cayenne PROFOUNDLY effects oxygen levels and distribution in the body.  Not only that, but it stimulates NOS production.  See the following "out of the box" think by doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital:  https://www.bostonherald.com/2020/04/06/massachusetts-general-hospital-among-first-to-test-nitric-oxide-on-pandemic-patients/?fbclid=IwAR38kbCNLTelNzAQ8ywPqM4Skc-pmFRKMHmtCZUlJRNqDYXPj5kza_G_lt8

Fulvic Acid is recommended as a part of the prevention protocol, as a trace mineral supplement (and even a prebiotic).

Below is an excellent reference supporting the inclusion of fulvic acid in the treatment of many different acute and chronic conditions (with a "focus" on HIV):

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It has been suggested that other factors may be involved in the Vitamin D COVID-19 study presented.  This may be POSSIBLE (but due to the nature of the entire data set, not very likely), however, if we look at the research conducted on Vitamin D and the flu, we will see that this study, while the only one done so far with COVID-19, is not new.

https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2017/02/study-confirms-vitamin-d-protects-against-cold-and-flu/

If something simple like vitamin D is too much for people to believe, first refer to the above link.  "...“Most people understand that vitamin D is critical for bone and muscle health,” said Carlos Camargo of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), the study’s senior author. “Our analysis has also found that it helps the body fight acute respiratory infection, which is responsible for millions of deaths globally each year.”

This was a major, global study, and while it was observational, that doesn't mean it is not significant, nor does that mean it was "bad" science.  It's not that easy to get published by Harvard.

Even the National Institute of Health has issued formal warnings about low Vitamin D levels and the flu (with cited references, in the document):

https://www.pharmacytimes.com/news/vitamin-d-helps-the-immune-system-during-cold-and-flu-season

If a person doesn't want to accept the information from those two studies, the problem isn't with the research or the ideas, it is with the "viewer"!

I just wanted to post enough supporting research and documentation to support the most important methodologies explored here.  I will be adding more information and expanding as time provides!

There is a lot of confusion about vitamin C, what to use, and how to use for both prevention and treatment.

For prevention and "maintenance", it's easy.  On the concept protocol page, we recommend 3-5 grams of vitamin C daily.  This can be pure ascorbic acid taken in water (may cause loose stools or stomach discomfort in some), buffered vitamin C (for those with sensitive stomachs, especially), or liposomal vitamin C.

Liposomal vitamin C is superior for oral use.  It is also much more expensive to purchase.  The highest quality product is probably Dr. Christopher Shade's Liposomal Vitamin C (from his company, Quicksilver Scientific).  We consider most of his products "top shelf", and for very good reason!

However, you can make a fantastic product at home.  There are many tutorials out there, and it is as simple as combining the right amount lecithin with the right amount of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and water in a simple blender.  Or, you can use a refined approach to get the best possible product, using an ultrasonic bath device (like the ones people use to clean jewelry). 

The best tutorial:  https://qualityliposomalc.com/

When supplementing, simply try to spread out the consumption throughout the day.  If you eat three meals, you can take a gram or so with each meal.  Liposomal vitamin C can be taken at any time, with or without food.

Now, for COVID-19.  Please start off by reading Dr. Mercola's great article which documents the emerging research on using vitamin C to treat COVID-19:

articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/03/29/andrew-saul-vitamin-c.aspx

To be clear again, the body can only absorb 1 gram per hour of any water soluble C (like pure ascorbic acid). In order to get the effects that one gets from doing high dose vitamin C therapy via IV,  a far greater blood serum level must be achieved.  It doesn't matter how much you take orally, the body can utilize one gram, and the rest simply flushes the digestive tract (which in itself has value, but not directly like with an IV treatment).  Of course, even a gram an hour can be beneficial, but it won't have the same therapeutic effects.

There is a critical point where the concentration of vitamin C changes the effect of the Vitamin C; it reverses it's oxidative properties, like flipping a switch.  There are many papers out there documenting this, so we won't repeat the information here.

The maximum IV dosage of vitamin C is usually quoted to be between 3-5 grams (they are using much less when using IV C to treat COVID-19, however), taken over a period of six hours.

For home use, there are different ways and strategies to use vitamin C for acute infections.  Here is a brief commentary I wrote about the IDEA of using Liposomal vitamin C over water soluble C (for oral use), for HIGH DOSE vitamin C therapy:

I cannot say, nor can anyone else as of yet, which method of use would be superior:  The "traditional" method of using ascorbic acid, finding your maximum dose level, and using THAT daily while you are sick... or using a more experimental approach which utilizes a liposomal formulation for oral use. It might even be a matter of personal response.

I, personally, don't tend to enjoy pure ascorbic acid in water.  Many people have a very low tolerance, which may or may not change when a person gets ill.

In the "general concept" post, we link to a scientific study that tries to make the case for taking 4 grams of Lip C in an hour to achieve high blood serum levels via the oral route, making IV administration unnecessary.  Don't forget to read up on that thread!

------------------------------------------------------------------------

To be clear, all historic and traditional ORAL use of vitamin C used for acute illness was done with water soluble ascorbic acid.  Not buffered, not ester C, not "natural" vitamin C, but plain old pure ascorbic acid powder mixed in water.  Is there a case for using these other formulations for general health?  Absolutely.  Would I do that in this situation?  Absolutely not.

That said, with ascorbic acid, you can never even come close to the vitamin C blood serum levels like you can with an IV... no matter how much vitamin c you take every 15 minutes, the body can only absorb 1 gram per hour. The rest simply helps the body flush the system/digestive tract (which is useful, but not the point).

The traditional way to do use vitamin C orally is to take a certain amount of vitamin C every hour (or every 15 minutes, whatever)... like between 5 and 10 grams total per hour (10 is ideal). You keep track. You keep dosing until you get loose stools. You see how much C you have taken. Then, you stop for the day.

There are troves of tutorials out there that document this process step by step.  It is actually often referred to as a "Vitamin C Challenge Test", because the idea is to figure out exactly how much vitamin C that the body will tolerate, and then dose with that amount each day during an acute phase of illness.

What happens is that you finally reach a dosage point where you can loose, watery stools.  You stop there.  Then, the next day, you take 1 gram LESS, so that you do not get loose stools.

For an ill person, that might be 30, 40, even 50 grams a day.  So, what you are doing, is establishing your maximum daily dose... For COVID-19, you only do this if you start to get ill.  The amount of C that the body can tolerate when one is well is VERY different to what it can tolerate when one is actually sick!

Now, It will most certainly HELP if one is using this time-honored method of vitamin C therapy!  This was first popularized decades ago, mainly by the Linus Pauling Institute.

...but you still will NOT even get close enough vitamin C in the blood stream, as you can with an IV treatment.

As mentioned before, In the general concept protocol post @ the EarthCures forum, I post a link to a scientific study that makes the case that with LIPOSOMAL vitamin C, one may be able to take four grams an hour and absorb it ( 2 grams every thirty minutes, perhaps even 1 gram every 15 minutes). This would mean you could  easily reach elevated blood serum levels of vitamin C.

Trying to reach maximum blood serum levels with liposomal vitamin C should be considered experimental. And, if you don't make it yourself, it can also get VERY expensive!

We now believe that using the liposomal form of vitamin C is superior (this document has been updated).  However, for those curious about the experimental treatment methods, we'll keep them here, as they have value to someone.  And, there may still be value to choosing one of these methods if one needs to save money by using less liposomal vitamin C, and more water soluble ascorbic acid.

Of course, I'm sure that there will be those who want to keep using ONLY water soluble vitamin C, because they know it well and trust it.  It's fine to just stick with the time-honored tradition of max dosing with ascorbic acid!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The first experimental method is to dose with ascorbic acid just like all of the traditions teach...to tolerance. Once you establish tolerance for a day or so, you then begin to STACK liposomal C on top of that maximum dose of ascorbic acid (at the 30 minute mark, ideally). Thus, you see if you can get maximum tolerance of water soluble C, plus a higher blood serum level of C.  No matter what, the rule is always the same:  Dose to maximum tolerance.  If you get loose stools, reduce amount taken.

The second experimental way is opposite: to first max out on taking 4 grams of liposomal vitamin c per hour for 4 hours. THEN, you can develop a timing strategy to dose ascorbic acid on top of the liposomal, essentially doing the same experimental therapy, but flipped.

This is all that can be said, because to say anything else would just be an opinion, or one person's personal experience.  It may be that a person can't tolerate any liposomal vitamin C when maxed out on ascorbic acid, who knows?

I personally will be using liposomal vitamin C, with a maximum dose of 4 grams per hour (2 grams every half hour) for 4 hours.... TWICE... in a 24 hour period....for a total possible dose of 32 grams in a day. One of the main reason is that my body doesn't like pure ascorbic acid in any form, and I don't like buffering it if avoidable. 

And THAT is probably overkill!  (see the information Dr. Mercola published below for more details).

My body LOVES and gravitates toward liposomal vitamin C.

Remember, breast milk is liposomal!

Are there unknowns associated with COVID-19, and high doses of liposomal vitamin C?  Of course!  There always are with natural and alternative medicine!

Updates posted here as available on vitamin C:

Again, please read this document, exploring vitamin C and COVID-19:

https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/03/29/andrew-saul-vitamin-c.aspx?cid_source=dnl&cid_medium=email&cid_content=art1HL&cid=20200329Z1&et_cid=DM495112&et_rid=839635134

According to the research conducted by Dr. Andrew Saul, the body can actually tolerate 100 grams of liposomal vitamin C.  If true, that is great news for those who would like to use liposomal vitamin C with acute illness rather than plain ascorbic acid.

Saul also claims that you can even reach a higher blood serum level than standard IV therapy!

Generally speaking, Dr. Saul states:

"“What I suggest, and have for some 44 years of professional life, is to take enough vitamin C to be symptom free, and when you're well, that isn't very much. I knew one lady who would take 500 mg of vitamin C a day and she was just fine. [Another person] with multiple chemical sensitivity, she needed 35,000 mg a day. Any less and she wasn't fine …"

I myself suggest a general "feel good" dose of between 3-5 grams daily (also the advice of Dr. Sara Myhill).

The link below is presented in the event anyone wants to research comparing blood serum levels and other useful data, derived from using different forms of vitamin C, ie. IV, liposomal, and water soluble ascorbates.

There are a lot of wild rumors running around out there on different methods and "cures" for a corona virus infection.  In times like this, it is far too easy for people to panic and make bad choices based on misleading-- or even misunderstood-- information.

Wisdom is developed as a byproduct of careful attention to detail, and an increasingly increasing depth perception gained from actual, some times painstaking, real experience.

As such, this post will probably offend many people on all sides of the "isle".  That said, I feel I have to post it so that those looking for some form of clarity can find it.  Often, when some sort of action is required, the only other alternative is blind acceptance.

Much of this is based on real conversations I've had with otherwise very sane and competent individuals.  And even though I've laid out my case in a very concise and clear manner, cognitive dissonance has mostly ruled the day.  Arguing is counter-productive to my own health, so rather than creating negative energy in my social world, I've elected to deal with it by posting my thoughts and reasoning here, rather than arguing on social media and Facebook!

Here is the crux of the matter:

The 80% of the people who were destined to already weather COVID-19 with relative ease... are going to be screaming from the roof tops, absolutely certain that therapy "X, Y, or Z" cured them!  The reality is that some therapies may have even made the illness worse, but they would have no way of knowing that, since they were going to recovery easily anyway.

What we MUST look at is the 20%.  And we must ALSO look at the "why" of the 20, when trying to figure out the best natural ways to support them, and help prevent any given person from hospitalization.

Please take the time to understand the exact nature and progression of COVID-19, and steer clear of what ultimately may prove to be bad advice.  There is a LOT of it out there!

So, here we go:

Let's Kill the Coronavirus in the Body with a Hair Dryer!

How about we don't.  Where has this insane advice come from?  It came from a doctor who discovered that the coronavirus has an achille's heel:  Heat sensitivity. 

Well, is he lying or mistaken?

No, in fact, his research appears completely legitimate.  However, what people have seemingly missed, was the fact that it takes 133 Degrees F exposure for several minutes in order to kill the virus.  And that is the temperature that the mucus membranes must reach, and NOT the ambient temperature outside of the body touching the skin.  People think that if the sauna or heat reaches that temperature, than the tissues will also, and that is usually NOT the case.

Sadly, this is not feasible.  In fact, this treatment will be one of those things that people think is a great idea, until they try doing it with lesions in their chest... when it hurts just to breath.

Now, there is some merit to the idea of using heat.  In the original discussion thread, a TCM medical doctor has diagnosed COVID-19 as "Cold, wet, lungs".  So dry heat sounds like a great idea, right?

Not so fast.  One doctor, based on autopsies conducted in China, notes that the most potent MOD (method of defense) that the virus has, is a sticky, thick mucus protecting the tissue.  This mucus almost immediately starts to harden, which is VERY bad news.

Now, imagine taking dry, dehydrating heat into the lungs with lesions and heavy, drying mucus.

So, you would THINK that cold wet lungs would desperately need hot, dry therapy.  And in some situations, this might be true.  In my opinion, NOT COVID-19.  It is imperative that this mucus... which most people wouldn't even know is present, because they have a DRY cough... be liquefied and eliminated as one of the top priorities.  This is one reason why we use warm/hot steam vapor therapy (another reason is that this form of therapy is a time honored tradition that pre-dates modern history, ideal for respiratory conditions of all sort).

Now, the DRYNESS comes with the recommendation of using things like the iodine-spiked salt pipe, which is a vastly superior idea.

If heat is good, is there anything that can be done?  ABSOLUTELY:  Localized heat applied directly to the chest!

This can be a TDP heat lamp, a full spectrum infrared lamp/bulb... really, any HEALTHY heat, applied directly the chest to warm it... and WITHOUT raising the actual temperature of the entire body?

What about saunas?  That heat sounds awesome!  It is great for many acute conditions, right?

Right.  And... errrr... wrong.

The problem here is with education.  As Dr. Richard Shulze always taught, is that heat can be used safely under almost any condition...  provided that it is used properly  That's the catch.  Even people who are well versed in many different types of sauna therapy STILL put a great deal of stress on the cardiovascular system during therapy.   They don't know how to mitigate this effect, and compensate for it.

Cardiovascular stress is one of the biggest risk factors for death for COVID-19.  So, someone very health that is ultimately in the 80% bracket of mild symptoms, is going to get great results with doing saunas correctly.

But what about those other 20%, who desperately need to find a viable therapy that doesn't INCREASE pre-existing risk factors?

So, let us do everything we can to support the cardiovascular system, rather than challenge and stress it!

To summarize, preventing a fever with sauna therapy has always been excellent.  However, TREATING a fever with "fever therapy" is problematic and has many pitfalls, even if there are no pre-existing risk factors present.

This is one of those therapies that many people are going to tout it as wonderfully helpful... and yes,  to those 80% who have mild cases, indeed it probably will... but that is going to make a certain percentage of people... likely the ones who really, desperately need RELIEF as apposed systemic stress... it's likely going to risk making them worse.

If you have the training and knowledge to do it, you know what to do, and what needs to be done.

However, the most elegant solution?  Use localized heat, hydrate the body as a priority, you can give the body some needed moisture and support by using reasonable amounts of warmth with vapor inhalation therapy.

To summarize, the best no-risk heat treatment combines TARGETED dry heat (at safe temperatures) with therapeutic clay:  The device is called a TDP Clay Mineral Heat lamp.  TDP heat lamps have been studied in China for serious conditions respiratory conditions such as tuberculosis.  This is a heat therapy (infrared spectrum), and a frequency therapy (the infrared is "beamed" through a special black therapeutic clay rich with trace minerals... before it reaches the body), and a clay therapy, that is done WITHOUT using potentially "harmful" EMFs.

Many people who have been reading Eytons' Earth's clay information already have TDP lamps.  This is a GREAT time to use it!

Now, we can also take the idea of COLD/HEAT as it is intended in TCM:  Heat/cold is not just a "temperature", but an idea that describes the state of the lungs.  One of the best ways to convert cool damp lungs is not with LITERAL heat, but with herbs that are known to warm the body.  The original discussion thread touches on this, but as a secondary consideration, as there are more important things to consider first.

But for those that tolerate lemon, cayenne, garlic, warming herbs, ginger... You all the know the drill! :)

Bleach Kills EVERYTHING!  Let's drink a bleaching agent to kill the Corona virus in the Body!

Now here, my perspective will probably make both "sides" of the argument annoyed.  BUT, that said... Bottom line?  Let's not drink a bleaching agent to kill the corona virus!

Now are people actually talking about drinking something like Clorox Bleach?  No.  They are talking about "MMS", or some derivative thereof.

First off, MMS is a term coined by MMS zealot Jim Humble.  Jim discovered that using a solution of water enriched with bio-oxidiative and bio-active chlorine dioxide was extremely useful in combating malaria in those infected in Africa.  This much is absolutely true.  Africans infected with the often lethal infectious disease of malaria were given this water as an oral-use medicine, and in the proper concentrations, it DID eradicate the malaria in individuals who were otherwise deathly ill, and it did so safely.

That said, MMS is chemical substance that, when activated with an acid, produces water soluble chlorine dioxide gas.  This absolutely ****is**** a bleaching agent, just like chlorine is a bleaching agent.

Jim coined the term MMS as an anacronym  which orginally stood for:  "Miracle Mineral Supplement".

This is indicative of the whole problem:  It is NOT a miracle (it is simple science), it is NOT a mineral (it is a manufactured chemical compound designed to produce a GAS), and it is NOT a supplement (the body has no requirement to consume chlorine dioxide, hence it cannot supplement anything).

Eventually, years later, they started to change the name... first by changing supplement to "solution".   But it is always wise to look at ORIGINS for truth.

The first problem with using MMS or even highly concentrated CDS:  Advocates state emphatically that since it works for Malaria, it will work for COVID-19.  This is a huge leap, and it is a leap right off of a cliff.  Malaria is a blood-born, and blood-spread infectious disease.  It turns out that it wasn't so difficult to get a high enough concentration of the OXIDIZING AGENT, CDS, into the blood stream in order to kill the pathogenic organisms.  Fantastic!

The problem is, COVID-19 is not a blood-born illness, and it does not live in any substantial concentration in the blood stream.  It lives, primarily, on the outer tissue of the lungs where it infects lung tissue.  It is highly unlikely that you can get a high enough concentration of CDS through the blood stream and into the lungs-- without damaging the lungs-- to be effective.

However, there is a bigger problem at hand.  "Patients" in Africa responded amazingly to Jim Humble's original protocols.  When he brought them to the United States and the western world, it was disastrous.

Rather than take the time to study bio-oxidative therapies in depth (Bocci, for instance, in Germany has crunched all of the numbers making OZONE safe to use), Jim started blaming all of the users for their failure at using MMS.

But what was happening, is that individuals in the western world, due to environmental and dietary factors, were much more chronically toxic than the people in Africa, who always lived very close to natural in  an environment that was not (yet) over-burden with industrialized pollutants.

So, most individuals who were already very ill, were being made MUCH worse by using MMS.  I say "most" because I was a part of a ~200 group of people testing MMS according to Jim Humble's protocols.  Most had chronic issues of some sort.  At the end of the experiment, there were only ****three*** of us who could complete Jim's protocols.  The rest got too sick and had to quit... and they had to quick long before there was a high enough concentration of CDS in the body to do any real good.

However, NOT all.  When you get one in fifty people getting good results with something, soon you have troves of very loud voices touting the miracles.  Herein lies the bane of all anecdotal "data".  Compound THAT with the placebo effect, and you will start to see a very clear picture of what was REALLY going on.

You have an army of zeolots willing to hurt 50 people in order to heal one.  And most of the time, they don't even know that they are doing it.  Even if that number was 5 to 1, it is still far too high.

SO, I personally LOVE MMS... Or, should I say, highly concentrated CDS.  I always keep some CDS in the fridge, it is very useful.  I've also had decades of detox experience.  I can get an effective concentration of CDS into the bloodstream to get some really nice oxidative therapy going on, and only experience great things from it.

But would I dose someone with no such experience?  Absolutely not.

Jim eventually caved into the truth (after years upon years of complaints), and rewrote his protocols.   They are now MUCH more reasonable and "doable".  I still would not reccomend anyone take MMS who didn't already have a great deal of experience with it.

FURTHERMORE, ozone therapy -- and to a certain extent, H2O2 therapy-- is a more effective oxidizing agent.  One of the most significant benefits of ozone (activated oxygen O-), is that it is a systemic catalyst.  By its mere presence, it forces the cells of the body back to full respiration, re-normalizing the body's glutathione antioxidant system.  CDS does not have this effect.  In essence, even one round of medical ozone sends a huge reset signal to the immune system.

This is medical science.  The world's expert in medical ozone therapy, Professor Velio Bocci, has written troves of published research studies on the validity of ozone therapy, much of it has been translated into English.

Bio-oxidative therapy, in the form of ozone rectal insufflation or IV (see the  work of Dr. Rowen and Ebola in Africa), may be VERY useful to treat COVID-19... even just considering the fact that you can greatly assist oxygen-starved patients by increasing blood oxygenation almost immediately.

However, ozone therapy does require special training and special medical grade equipment.  This would not be a viable therapy for most people at home.  However, there are medical doctors out there trained in ozone administration, and rectal insufflation CAN be done safely at home if any person takes the time to study carefully, and learn the why's and why not's of any bio-oxidative therapies.

Final point and case?  Clearly, CDS is too concentrated to "huff" and treat the lungs directly.  There are warnings everywhere not to breath too much in.  Do I think that maybe there is an exact concentration where it can be therapeutic in-lungs rather than irritating or damaging?  Yes, I do.  Do I know what that number is?  No, I have no idea.

For ozone, I have the exact data.  Ozone used precisely at between 0.3 0.7 PPM is highly therapeutic to use in the lungs, without damaging the tissue.  That is good research, that is responsible research, and that is actionable in a safe manner.  Of course, the huge barrier to using this knowledge therapeutically is that the equipment that must be used to determine the exact concentration of ambient ozone is VERY, VERY, expensive!  Even to rent!

****This thread documents one method of how we are cleansing and protecting the sinuses, and thus by extension, the throat and lungs****

Upper respiratory (viral) infections often start by pathogenic organisms spreading from the nasal passageways to the throat, and then from the throat to the lungs.  It makes sense, then, to come up with a "doable" system to both properly cleanse and protect the nasal passageways, so that no pathogenic organisms can migrate through the nasal cavities into the lungs.

Cleansing and "sterilizing" the nasal passageways can be done by using a sinus irrigation system (like a Water Pik with an adapter) or a simple Neti Pot.  They even have sinus irrigation systems, although I personally prefer my Water Pik.  However, there have been complaints that adapters aren't working for some models of the Water Pik.

We like to use one teaspoonful of gentle baby shampoo per two cups of water, as pioneered by Dr. Mas Takiana from Baylor University.  Soap is a surfactant, and will eliminate any biofilm in the sinuses.  This will allow the sea salt to do a better job of sterilizing the sinus cavity. 

We also like to add just a bit of ***water solube*** iodine, such as Iosol.  It is not wise to over-do any form of iodine.  Using a water soluble iodine is not as effective  as using something like Lugol's, but it is far more gentle and safe.  We do use, as Dr. Sara Myhill advises, Lugol's (highly concentrated iodine) in the portion of this protocol where a salt pipe is used.

Use one to two tsp. of sea salt (we use ionized sea salt) per two cups of water.

Our water pik has about a two cup reservoir, so we irrigate with two cups, but the standard recommended amount is just a cup (1/2 tsp baby shampoo, 1/2 - 1 tsp salt).  One can use less sea salt to get the sinuses adjusted to irrigation.  It is uncomfortable and irrigating.

We also warm the water a bit.  Water that is too cold is uncomfortable, and water that is too warm is uncomfortable.  One can experiment a bit to find the ideal temperature that's right for the individual.

See the reply to this thread below to learn how we often do a second flush can be with some properly diluted hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).  Once the sinus cavities are cleaned, alternatively, one can simply use a "snoot" bottle to huff a bit of properly diluted H2O2.  This is ONLY for those of us already very comfortable using H2O2 in the respiratory tract responsibly!

Once the sinus cavity has been properly cleaned, the next step is to use a salt pipe inhaler spiked with a bit of iodine.  Before using the salt pipe, allow the sinuses to calm down a bit after irrigation!

A sea salt pipe ( https://www.amazon.com/Plant-Therapy-Himalayan-Inhaler-Crystal/dp/B006U41QN0/) is fantastic for a wide range of respiratory ailments.  In this case, however, we are going to combine the power of salt ions with concentrated iodine.



Therefore, one will need some form of concentrated iodine.  Dr. Sara Myhill, an amazingly creative medical doctor specializing in things Like CFS/ME, who runs a robust medical practice in the U.K., is the pioneer of this method.  She recommends using 12-14% Lugol's Iodine.  Can other types of iodine be used?  Most certainly.  However, keep in mind that the major benefit of using something like Lugol's is that ****it coats and penetrates*** the airways.  Use it with care, it is powerful stuff.  More is not better!  Also, please make sure that you are not allergic to iodine-rich products.  Simply dab a drop on your arm, and check for a rash.

Before using the salt pipe, drizzle about 4-5 drops of iodine down different areas of the interior sides of the ceramic pipe mouth piece.  The idea is NOT to combine it WITH the salt, but simply to deposit it on the ceramic portion of the pipe.  When you inhale through the salt pipe, the salt ions will pick up some iodine, and one can actually feel it in the nasal passageways.

Once the pipe has been properly prepared, simply "sniff"/inhale 10 to 15 "puffs" through the inhaler.  Make sure to treat each nostril equally.  One can feel the iodine coating the sinus cavities.

The best salt pipes come with Himalayan crystal sea salt.  Any high quality salt can be used, including adding a bit of once to thrice times roasted bamboo salt.  However, if experiment with other amazing salts, please keep in mind that some will act as throat and lung irritants.  Bamboo salt WILL, due to the sulfur content.  When I for one use a bit of bamboo salt in the pipe, I'm careful not to breath too much into the lungs.  I just "huff it" into the nasal passageways, and then exhale it out from whence it came.  Most people should probably just stick with the basic salt, but I did want to mention that there are alternatives.

This can be repeated  throughout the day to help protect the sinuses, throat, and lungs from pathogenic infectious organisms.

It is easy!  ...one just needs to carefully listen to the body's response.  Too much is never a good thing, but your sinuses will start to "complain" if one becomes a bit overzealous.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT IODINE USE:    Use iodine only as directed by Dr. Sarah Myhill's protocol/instructions (give here).  You do NOT want to use iodine in a nebulizer, or do anything to get ***too much*** iodine into the lungs.  At higher concentrations, it first becomes an irritant, and then it becomes dangerous.  Used as directed, it is very safe and effective.  Also, be certain that you are not allergic to iodine before using it (the simple skin test)!

NOTES:

At the first sign of anything happening in your throat, take a 10% betadine solution, dilute it in water by adding 1 part of betadine to 20 parts of distilled water (or colloidal silver).  Gargle often.

It is wise to keep the ears clean as well.  Right before treating, mix a solution of 50/50 3% hydrogen peroxide to colloidal silver (or distilled water).  Lay on one side and fill the ear canal with the solution.  Let it sit for 10-15 minutes.  Then, do the second ear.  The more it boils and bubbles, the more it is needed.

A perfectly "clean" ear will not react at all.  Doing this daily will eventually leave a nice antimicrobial coating of silver oxide (which releases silver ions) on the surface of the ear canals.

In the past, sinus infections have always responded very well to traditional treatments such as using salt in a neti pot, taking oral anti-microbials such as olive leaf extract, oregano oil... and using natural decongestants such as cayenne pepper with lemon and apple cider vinegar.

However, recently, over the past few years, this has changed.  Even more aggressive approaches with natural therapies has stopped working.  At best, people have only been able to reduce symptoms, and sinus infections, even when treated daily, have started to last for months and months... sometimes even becoming chronic.

The regular scenario:  A person tries the natural way, gets frustrated, goes to their MD gets a round of antibiotics, which fails, and then the MD prescribes a second round (which also fails).  By now the person is three months in, and would have done well to purchase stock in Kleenex.

Why?  What happened?  What changed?

It looks like the (bacteria) microbes responsible for these infections have begun to evolve new defense mechanisms.  I've already been aware that this is possible, as it has already occurred with common digestive system parasites, many of which have adapted to things like traditional anti-parasitic herbs.

With sinus infections, I eventually learned exactly what is going on.  These organisms have learned to produce a bio-film that protects them from anti-microbials, including "natural" treatments and "medical" antibiotics.

Doing research, we found a medical doctor who noticed the same thing with his patients:  Many were simply not responding to treatments that should be effective.

This doctor came up with a fantastic treatment.  Knowing that the solution was simply to find a safe way to eliminate the bio-film,  he started testing the obvious:  A simple soap:  Johnson's Baby Shampoo (just the plain one with nothing added).

This worked, and it worked fast.  The formula is simple:  Mix 1-2 tsp of salt (use sea salt, preferably 3 times roasted bamboo salt which is sterile), and 1 tsp. of baby shampoo, into two cups of water.  Use warmed water.  Mix well.  You can even add some EIS/CS right before use.

While a neti pot can be used, it is far easier to use a sinus irrigation system.  We found that there was a suitable sinus adapter for our water pick.  Using this was much easier than a neti pot.  ALWAYS keep equipment sterile!!!!

The first day, we irrigate the sinuses once.  Depending on how bad the infection is, it can be unpleasant, and the unpleasantness can last for several hours.

The second day is easier.  Irrigation of the sinuses was much more pleasant, twice daily was easily doable .

The third day, if possible, irrigate them three times.

Once the sinus infection has drastically improved, once a day for 3-4 weeks would be a great idea.

If necessary, after irrigation of sinuses with the baby shampoo formulation, one can irrigate them a second time with EIS/CS after 45 minutes or so.

Someone asked for more details about the baking soda flush.  There are many different ways people use baking soda, and it's great to flush the digestive system, help with systemic fungal issues, break down acid-formed deposits in the body (like kidney stones from oxalates).  It gives the body what should be a VERY temporary boost in alkalinity.

Some people just use the baking soda, without lemon, which is just fine, but I personally think that the added lemon is very beneficial.  The idea, though, is to use a small amount, not to completely neutralize the baking soda effect.

Here are the "general" instructions, which of course can be used outside of the "formal" digestive system detoxification protocol:

Start with 1 tsp of baking soda mixed in about eight ounces of water, add in 1/2 ounce of lemon juice, mix well, consume on an empty stomach.

The next day, do two doses (this will probably be the standard dose for most people, but if you are having constipation issues due to organ congestion which inhibits the production of gastric juices/enzymes, it may take more)

If you don't get loose stools, day 3, do 3 doses....etc.

Notice that you will be adding DOSES, NOT increasing the concentration!  This is an important point.  The idea is to drink 1, 2, 3... glasses of water, not one glass of water with 3 tsps of baking soda!

Eventually, you'll get a flush about two to four-six hours afterwards. Once you flush, you can drop the dosage down by 1 to stabilize the bio-terrain of the gut to prevent causing an additional microbiome imbalance.  You can do a flush whenever needed, but one flush should be enough, and then you can continue the therapy, if needed/desired, below the dosage threshold that causes runny stools.

This therapy can continue as needed as a corrective measure, some people make this simply a part of life, I prefer to work to correct the imbalance(s) so that the therapy is not needed.

Baking soda gives the blood a massive pH spike in the blood for a short period of time, it will push saliva pH up to about 8.0.  It should drop to 7.0 exactly by the hour mark.  If it over-compensates down to around 6 or 6.5, there are still metabolic issues. If it only drops to 7.5, and you are NOT in a fasting state (ketosis), it means that there are likely kidney issues involved.  If you are in fasting state, you can check pH an hour after eating.

This spike in pH indicates that there is certainly anti-fungal concentrations of baking soda circulating in the body's active metabolism... this effectively starts to wipe out fungus in the blood (usually from leaky gut syndrome).  Watch carefully to see if the there is an energy boost, and if any brain fog goes away (even if temporarily).  I've seen people who have had brain fog for years completely clear it up within 72 hours (hence this was likely caused by fungal/yeast issues). It won't work if brain fog is caused by mycotoxins or heavy metals, or blood sugar or fat starvation issues.

Yes, I suppose you could do the therapy at night, but the general purpose of a flush is to do it outside of your normal "bathroom routine" so that you can tell you've flushed the entire digestive tract.

This is the easiest flush I've ever worked with, and can be done by most people who are digestively ill.  Whereas, things like the castor oil turpentine flush is very difficult for many people to tolerate.

Now, once you've worked with your own body and your body now intuitively understands the process (and thus will either reject the process, or embrace it and work with it), you can get really, really creative with it.

For example, you can make complex colloids with DE, zeolite, bentonite, illite, etc. (another adjunct to the protocol)... wait 20 minutes after the last dose, and then drink the colloid.  Each of these colloidal minerals will do something a bit different, but it's OK to simply use one.  To note, I think that the mineral that will NOT eradicate all bio-film might be sodium bentonite. DE, Zeolite, and the natural calcium bentonite will rip it up, the DE being the most effective.

Then, 20 minutes after that, you could make a probiotic water solution using all of whatever great probbies you have, but I highly recommend NOT using people's favorite fat/milk based, because it is more effective to use something absolutely sugar/carb free.

Drink as much water as you can along with the probbies so that you dilute any stomach acid production, this helps preserve them.  Adding things like this is different than the "recommended" method in the digestive system cleanse protocol.  I just wanted to point out that one can get creative with any flush.

Keep in mind that drinking water therapy is something one should adjust the body to before adding ingredients; sometimes of course there's not time for this, so one must just listen carefully to the body and do the best one can.

With imagination, there are many different directions you can go.

Often times, as with me, I can do this therapy for a week or ten days, and my body just loves it.  Then, my stomach will start to let me know that the therapy is getting a bit too harsh.  But I've known people that continue to respond well to the baking soda therapy for extended periods of time.

The thing is:  only do it once daily (even if you choose to do that at night), you are alkalizing the entire digestive tract. You can do that temporarily, but if you do it over and over again during the day, you risk shifting the bacterial floral balance in the wrong direction.

There may be a way, creatively, to add more lemon juice in the mix to balance out the pH, but one just might be nullifying the sodium, or who knows...

Hope this helps, let me know if it does anything for you if you try it.  It is not a cure all, and won't work with every complaint, but as far as I know it is safe.

[from an email correspondence]:

Cutler.  He's hurt a lot of people.  As far as I'm concerned, it they should be classified as malicious acts, because I know so many people who have tried to contact him and/or his "fans" and "groups: to try to explain the problems... with the SOLE motivation/goal in trying to help solve them. 

This "problem" is not limited to Culter.  It might even be unfair to single his protocol out.  The problem with egos like Cutler, and subsequent followers, is that they figure out an elegant cure that works for them.  Some one else is drawn to it, and it works for them to.  All of the sudden, you think you have a brilliant cure that will work for everyone.  You don't bother studying any more biochemistry, you don't try to find people that it DOESN'T work for, to understand things better, to seek diligently for problems or possible issues.  Instead, you start victim blaming any time someone approaches you trying to say that it hurt them.

All of us should be always looking for the problems and challenges that our intervention protocols can cause, EVEN if it is only 1 out of 10,000 people.  THAT is being loving and responsible and being a real asset to help with the human condition.  This is something that I've been doing for 25 years, and I continue to keep an open mind always.  I'm always looking for problems with the things I do, always looking for a more elegant, simpler solution.

I didn't start out "bad mouthing" the Cutler protocol.  I kept getting emails from people who got deathly ill, for four months, six months, nine months after stopping the protocol out of desperation.  These people were often then terrified to try anything else, and were literally traumatized from trying to get help from people they... previously... considered "experts".

This post is really for them.  I don't have any further time to dedicate to the issue.  If I start today and work 10 hour days, I have more work to do than this lifetime will allow, and I try to spend it working on positive things, not being the natural and alternative medicine police!  It's not healthy or fun!

But I will say all of this:

So, if you are part of the sub-group of people with heavy metal toxicity and without retention toxicity, or other genetic variant that would need to be dealth with, then Cutler's protocol will be miraculous and brilliant; even life saving.  It will be THE protocol that you should be doing.  The best of the best.  IF, however, you are part of the sub-group of people with serious underlying infections, with methylation issues, or any type of retention toxicity, Cutler's protocol will hurt you, and sometimes very badly.

I've even tried to very carefully approach the Culter mobs to see if anyone is open to looking deeper, and I always run into a mob of angry people ready to pounce.

Just because something works for person, doesn't mean it is "the truth", "the way", or even "good".  With some protocols, you're lucky if you get a success rate of 1:20 (and you MUST, MUST, MUST account for human behavior and habits, you HAVE to stop blaming the victim).

My ideology is different.  First, a person must do a digestive system restoration/cleanse, so that the primary elimination channels are open.  This must be done in all cases except people with acute toxicity.  Here, you can safely deal with many detox issues that will pop up, like dehydration and bile toxicity.  At this time, you should do a diet change so that you are getting only the nutrients you need, and learn how to eat only foods that you, personally, can digest successfully.

Next, a person should do a very basic heavy metal cleanse... and yes, I use the dreaded Cilantro (just like real detox experts Dr. Christopher Shade and Dr. Klinghardt).  Since the detox channels of the body are open, it is very easy to manage dosing cilantro safely and effectively.

A successful digestive system detox/cleanse/restoration paves the way for a successful basic heavy metal cleanse, which paves the way for deep detox.

At every stage you can work to address challenges that might otherwise cause a disaster in "future" protocols.

ALA comes AFTER the basics have been done.  At this point, a dietary change should have already been in place for at least 3-6 months, the colon functioning well, digestive juices are being properly produced in the body, etc... And, even then, I start with a VERY basic and VERY safe formulation... Dr. Tim O'Shea's chelation formula, which has a very small amount of ALA combined with a great mopper (zeolite), both in doses too low to cause any real detox issues.

After that, if needed (it seldom is), you can break out the big guns...  Things like liposomal ALA, lip glutathione, lip NAC, lip Vit C... etc... including doing safe rounds of oral chelation via larger doses EDTA (tiny amounts of EDTA are in O'Shea's chelation formula).

These things can be done safely, and the most important thing to do is learn to listen to your own body, and not so-called "experts".  Furthermore, it is wise to study the work of individuals with a very strong sense of ethics, like Dr. Christopher Shade and Dr. Klinghardt, both have access to the analytical tools and both have a great deal of experience working with very problematic detox issues!

[Email question asking how/should a blender be used to make larger amounts of hydrated clay gel]

Here's what I've come up with.  Now, to be clear, lots of people do use metal mixers/blenders to hydrate clay gel.  The clay is still the clay. It will work, and work well.  But is it the best idea?  No, especially for internal use.

 First and foremost, one should minimize wet clay's exposure to metal alloys.  Mixing it with metal-based stirring devices for a minute is not likely to cause serious harm or even be anything to worry about, especially if the clay is to be externally. 

However, leaving clay in a metal alloy (like a bowl) bowl CAN.  Clay will sorpt metal ions off of non-noble, reactive metal alloys.  If, for example, you get a surface layer contamination of (now rusted) iron, the clay can be contaminated with active tetanus.  This is what I believe caused the only medically documented/reported adverse "event" with clay:  A case of neonatal tetanus.  I think that the individual must have stored wet/hydrtaed clay in a tin can (or similar container) for an extended period of time.

That said, rarely have I ever used a mixer.  I now use the layering method of making hydratred clay gel, which requires no mixing.   It is an art form, and does take some practice.

The other "commercial" solution is to find or make silicon mixing rods/blades.  There is even a silicon powder coating available  that can be done that renders metal alloys non-reactive with a silicon coating.  The problem is, you have to send your equipment off to a special factory.  It is pricey, and who knows how long it will last?

Any non-reactive substance should work well.  I have to find what I would call a perfect solution, if someone does, I'd be glad to post the instructions here.

For metals, I'm more worried about the nickel and other trace impurities in the alloy, I'm not toooo concerned about a tiny amount of ferrous oxide (iron), although clay has plenty of that and doesn't need any more!

I would look into getting an industrial paint mixer, and see if you can find non-reactive attachments; even a very quality grade plastic would be superior to metal alloys... but be sure to change them out before they start to degrade!

If you are interested in the method I pioneered, the "effortless" method, here is a link.  The first link is kind of how and why I developed the method, by studying clay, hot springs, and even rain,  in the clay's natural "habitat".  It is where I learned how important water CAN be when hydrating clay.

When the clay comes right out of the ground from the pure portion of the vein, you would think it is rock.  If you dropped a clay chunk in some water, it would mostly just sit there and do nothing.

But, if you just a bit of water, a few drops, the clay starts crunching and crackling, and starts to break apart by itself.  If you do this over and over again, bit by bit, it makes an amazing clay gel.

Raymond Dextreit taught that clay acts a bit differently if you add water to it, or if you add clay to water.  I never found a translation that documents the how's and why's.

So, my method does both!

You can make a very dense clay, or you can make a very fluffy clay (mixing).

EIS/colloidal silver is great for most sore throats.  It's easy to use, and safe.  Treatment is simple:  Spray the back of your throat every so often, keeping in mind that after seven minutes, chances are that any remaining silver ions will have been "inactivated" or used up.

However, there are exceptions to the rule, and the exception could be life threatening.  I remember reading, quite a few years ago, the sad tale of a young girl dying because her father insisted to keep treating it with colloidal silver.  The problem:  The infection was "Strep throat", and the way that strep colonizes seems to give it a defense mechanism against silver, even silver ions with direct access to the treatment site (the throat itself).

Luckily, there is a way to treat tough throat infections.  My rule of thumb is this:  Provided that the person is not spiking a fever, it is generally safe and most of the time even superior...  to use natural methods to handle "regular" acute infectious illnesses.  The body should respond favorably within about 72 hours.  If after 72 hours there is no improvement, then it becomes wise to try changing tactics.  Unless you happen to be a real expert, medical intervention is always advisable if a person starts to spike a fever or if things get worse.

For a sore throat, using a 20:1 solution of betadine (a water soluble iodine) to colloidal silver is an ideal treatment system to deal with any sore throat.  And, it works very quickly.  If you catch a sore throat within the first hour or so, you can knock out the infection within a few short hours.

I simply take 1 ml of a commercial betadine solution, and add it to 20 ml of quality, highly ionic EIS silver.  Then you gargle with it.  You can probably get two or three gargles out of the betadine silver solution.

It is that simple, and very effective.  Of course, the longer you wait to work on the condition, the longer it will take to clear up, because then you are dealing with more actual tissue damage.  That said, a person should start to see improvements very quickly, which means that a person doesn't have to risk jeopardizing the health waiting to see how the body is combating the infection. 

I researched this after running into a tough sore throat that first resisted all natural treatments, and then resisted a round of antibiotics.  The antibiotics were as useless as the natural remedies.  I find this to be the case wayyyy more often than I would like!

Needless to say, the Betadine is available almost everywhere, very affordable, and I keep a bottle on hand at all times.

One thing:  Do not breath betadine into the lungs.  Sometimes, a creative person might think that if gargling is effective, then nebulizing it must be really effective.  Do NOT do this.  This is not safe.  It is extremely dangerous.  Gargling is fine.  Betadine should be consider an "external" type of treatment.  Do not drink it or breath it.

I think one reason that the betadine is so effective is that it leaves a thick coating on surfaces (in this case, the throat tissue).

On the "core" Eytons Earth' website, I think that there is plenty of great and accurate information on how to use external clay poultices to deal with a wide range of external wounds and infections.

However, since I have now seen this about a half dozen times first hand, I wanted to share about an "exception" to the general rule of using clay externally.

Hydrated clay gel should be placed directly on the body, and thick... at least 3/4 of inch thick, and even more is ok if the clay is a bentonite/montmorillonite/smectite (using more if using something illite won't make a real difference).  It should be placed on the body immediately after the insult.  Seconds actually do count, although there is no reason to panic if you wait awhile.

However, and this is especially true with puncture wounds, don't wait too long.  One of clays primary methods of action is that it pulls toxins directly out of the tissue.  This includes debris, undesirable foreign elements that are currently immuno-reactive (something that the body recognizes as a foreign agent or can be mobilized via the lymph system).  It also includes things like bacteria.  Some bacteria clay kills, some it inhibits, some it starves, and some it simply pulls right out along with toxins.

The problem here comes when a person waits too long for application.  If the infection starts to spread into otherwise healthy tissue (or the blood stream), eventually the clay won't have enough pulling power to pull it through the insult/wound area.  Sometimes, this doesn't matter, the clay works anyway.  However, other times, a clay poultice will work great on the wound/infection site, but won't stop the spread of the infection inward.

In this situation, a person will be able to see the redness and/or swelling getting farther and farther away from the site of the insult.   In this situation, antimicrobial herbs are a great idea, but -- and this still amazes me-- what WILL work is clay baths.

I still have no MOA as to why a clay bath will work in a situation where a poultice does not.   Usually, it is the exact opposite.  Usually, a poultice is more powerful locally, and clay baths tend to work systemically.

So, it's a great idea to hit the clay as soon as possible.  But, we are all human.  Sometimes we think something doesn't need any attention, but when we wake up the next morning, it's clear that something needs to be done.  The best idea is to apply a clay poultice, take a nice clay bath (who doesn't love and great hot clay bath, anyway!), and then apply another one.

If extremities are involved, clay can usually be used for as long as a person desires.  If the insult is near an organ area, then caution should be employed.  Clay poultices can act very powerful when placed near organs, and it can cause severe fatigue and even -- on the rare occasion -- mild shock.   As always, learn to listen carefully to the body!
