As a registered nurse with a master’s degree in biology/clinical nutrition and having been in private practice as an orthomolecular nurse-nutritionist, I am well familiar with successful nutrient treatment holistic protocols — now applied to rescuing COVID19 patients. This knowledge needs to be shared world-wide as such treatments benefit many health conditions including infectious diseases….
Many physicians treat acute viral infections, with 4-days of very large daily doses of Vitamins A (100,000 IU) and D (50,000 IU), also using zinc along with Vitamin C, the latter of which should be continued indefinitely while symptomatic and for 36-48 hours after symptoms subside–as in the Cathcart bowel-tolerance dosing protocol.1 That treatment has also been used with COVID-19, and along with nebulized iodine and food grade peroxide diluted to 3.5% for lung symptoms. Other nutrients—including selenium and NAC (n-acetyl cysteine) are often used, as well as additional oxygen therapies of injectable ozone or delivered rectally or vaginally. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has also been reported as helpful.
Vitamin D3 has recently been identified as extremely important for infectious disease immunity, including SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).2
Very large dosing intravenously (IV) with vitamin C has also been used successfully around the world in the treatment of toxins and viruses.3 including COVID19. Note that there are various forms of vitamin C, such as acidic and non-acidic available in tablets or powders as well as lyposomal forms that some researchers tout as more effective than IV. The Orthomolecular Medicine News Service article “hot off the press” entitled Vitamin C Evidence for Treating Complications of COVID-19 and other Viral Infections serves as a reading guide for the most relevant sources on vitamin C and D for prevention and treatment of complications from COVID-19 and other viral infections.
I’ve added additional valuable Vitamin C reference links at the end of the article….
