How to treat Covid

Many people have asked me to post my "whole cocktail" of drugs for Covid.

I don't have a whole cocktail because I individualize treatment based on underlying conditions, age, weight, severity and symptoms.

However, I recommend that everyone take Vitamin D, about 5,000 IU/day for prevention and treatment.  Don't wait until you get sick.  If you have blood drawn for any reason, test your level and supplement if it is low.

I recommend Zinc, about 30 mg daily.  There are rare old case reports of people losing their sense of smell from zinc lozenges!!! so if that is your only symptom while on zinc, it could be the zinc and not a case of Covid.

I recommend one full 324 mg aspirin daily when you have Covid.

I recommend ivermectin 0.2 mg/kg daily for up to 5 days for acute Covid. More doctors are recommending these higher doses, now that they seem to be safe and are claimed to be more effective.

Inhaled budesonide works to prevent lung inflammation.  It is available by prescription as Pulmicort, in an inhalation device.  You do need to learn how to use the device correctly. Best to be shown, but the Mayo Clinic has instructions here. Other steroids may work as well.

What about Vitamin C? Most vitamin C comes from China, and I have reactions to it.  The organic Vitamin C from Scotland doesn't bother me. I think small doses of a vitamin C preparation that works for you is a good idea prophylactically, and might help during acute infection. The FLCCC doctors recommend 500-1,000 mg Vitamin C 4x daily for patients hospitalized with Covid.

Over-the-counter famotidine (20-40 mg/day) and melatonin also work against Covid in vitro. People quibble about the doses.  Melatonin may put you to sleep, so reserve for bedtime at first:  3-10 mg/day (or night).

Cochicine is an interesting old drug that suppresses inflammation but usually causes diarrhea.  It is probably beneficial later in the course of the illness.  I have used it for gout but not for Covid.

HCQ and a macrolide antibiotic or doxycycline are appropriate for severe cases, high risk individuals, maybe others.  See the Fareed/Tyson protocol for the opinion of thoughtful doctors with a lot more experience than I have. The FLCCC protocols or the AAPS advice are also valuable, as is the paper written by McCullough et al.  Additional useful information can be found on Dr. Zelenko's website.

Glutathione (or NAC) help the body get rid of noxious products, but they also may speed up the excretion of useful medications.  So I don't recommend them for everyone, but for very sick patients they may be important.

Some say hyperbaric oxygen is very helpful.  It probably is, but I have no personal experience.

This is really great - thank you for sharing.

Another resource I have found helpful is Dr. Richard Horowitz who is a lyme clinician and researcher. He's been using an ivermectin + neutraceutical protocol since April 2020. His view as I understand it is that the ivermectin will work better if you strengthen glutathione levels. He also uses the ivermectin (same dosage) for 10-14 days.

oops, I should have added the link with my previous comment on Dr. Horowitz (should you choose to publish the comment):

Been meaning to note that ivermectin is antiviral because it blocks an essential pathway for nuclear transcription that is 'hijacked' by the virus. (Many, but not all, viruses use this trick; SARS-CoV-2 is one of them.) However, we use that same pathway daily for the normal maintenance and repair of our own cells and tissues, so it's important to limit the repeated use of ivermectin to just a few days (5 days at most) or separate the doses by more than 24 hours (e.g., 2 doses, 3 days apart). Taking it repeatedly for prophylaxis, as was described in the comments below another blog post, is not the best of ideas.

This bears repeating: Ivermectin blocks a normal cellular pathway that we really need and use daily. Use it with care.

I have bullous emphysema and use Ivermectin. 12mg day 1, 12mg day 3 and then 12mg once a week. I am confident that this will work prophylactically without causing any additional problems. My wife and I both use Ivermectin, never wear masks as we're exempt in Minnesota based on our disorders and we have never had COVID. Ivermectin has been prescribed over 3.5 billion times, is used by 60% of Sub-Saharan Africa every week, where they call it the Sunday-Sunday drug. Those several countries that use Ivermectin regularly have extremely low case counts and death counts from COVID. As Dr. Pierre Kory and Dr. Marik stated in US Senate Testimony, "If you take it, you will not get sick." I've downloaded over 300 peer reviewed reports on Ivermectin (I publish books that aggregate peer review) and have complete confidence in Ivermectin. My D3 level was 51.3 in November 2020. I supplement with the following protocol:

1000mg vitamin C twice a day
250mg Quercetin daily
3000mcg vitamin A daily
5000 IU's D3 with K2 daily
A multivitamin with magnesium (for D3 metabolism)
3-6mg Melatonin at bed time
50 milligrams Zinc daily

You must use high quality vitamins obtained from a trusted source.

Make yourself "Hard To Kill". Have your D3 (cholecalciferol) level checked every 6-months and know what it is. We did not have a corona virus pandemic.

We did have a Vitamin D3 deficiency Pandemic.
