Over the last six weeks, I have received hundreds of emails from knowledgeable readers with recommendations and options on how to protect yourself and how to deal with the corona virus. So I have put forward a collection of notes and will also be writing follow up articles about protecting oneself, including 5G.
But first, let me explain why I am writing this article.
A few weeks ago, “experts” were on television explaining that paracetamol was what was being used to “manage” the virus — and that if you’re not feeling well and have a fever, self-isolate and take paracetamol. They also pleaded with their audience to ignore the many “fake” suggestions and advice circulating on the internet.
“Against Community Guidelines”
About two weeks ago, I was forwarded a 6-minute Youtube clip put up by Dr Dan Lee Dimke (PHD) who explained how the virus becomes inactive in hot temperatures (he said 56°C). He suggested that as the virus can start in the nasal passages, maybe a regime of using hot air (via a hairdryer) “might offer additional aid to ending this outbreak more quickly.” The video was quickly disabled and removed as it “Violates Youtube’s community guidelines,” with many sites calling it Fake. I found a 1980s Chicago Tribune article advocating this, but can no longer locate it. A page advocating the hairdryer method has been removed from Prohealth — a medico site to empower individuals and improve lives. (A MSM Video on ‘truth and nothing but the truth’.)
I do not know whether this may help or is a complete waste of time, but I don’t like someone else — Youtube — deciding for me. So you, the reader, make up your own mind whether this information is against ‘community standards’. You can view the extended video on Dr Dimke’s Vimeo account HERE, and decide.
Science of Viruses vs Temperature
The science indicates that hot temperatures does cause the corona virus to become inactive.
A study published in the American Society for Microbiology set out to examine the “Effects of Air Temperature and Relative Humidity on Coronavirus Survival on Surfaces”. Using “surrogate” viruses (animal coronaviruses, gastroenteritis virus and mouse hepatitis virus) the five authors attempted to gain a greater understanding of the survival and persistence of coronaviruses, such as SARS-CoV-2.
What did they find? At 4°C (39°F), the infectious virus persisted for as long as 28 days on a stainless steel surface, with the lowest level of inactivation occurring at 20% Relative Humidity (RH). Inactivation was more rapid at 20°C (68°F) than at 4°C (at all humidity levels) with the viruses persisting for 5 to 28 days, with the slowest inactivation occurring at low RH. Both viruses were inactivated more rapidly at 40°C (104°F) than at 20°C, with 50% RH being the most effective for inactivation.
On 19 March 2020 a Chinese paper investigated how air temperatures and humidity influence the transmission of COVID-19 — also finding that high temperatures and high relative humidity significantly reduced transmission, suggesting that the arrival of summer and rainy season in the northern hemisphere can effectively reduce COVID-19 transmission. This is not good for the South Hemisphere as winter approaches. The study suggests, “In the early dates of the outbreak, countries with relatively lower air temperature and lower humidity (e.g. Korea, Japan and Iran) see severe outbreaks than warmer and more humid countries (e.g. Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand) do.”
Another study (not yet peer-reviewed) investigated 24,232 confirmed cases in China and 26 other countries from January 20 to February 4, 2020. They found that transmission peaked at 8.72℃ (48°F) and then slowly declined as temperatures rose — suggesting that countries and regions with a lower temperature in the world adopt the strictest control measures.
I remind the reader that I was told about a directive from state government to not send elderly patients to hospital if they contracted the virus.
They’re on their own. What options are available for those frail elderly in a age-care facilities? So why discredit Dr Dimke’s suggestion to breathe in hot air to suppress the virus in the sinuses?
The Future vs the Maths
As of 31 March 2020 there are 799,995 cases and 38,735 deaths across 199 countries. That is about 4.5% mortality rate. Some other statistics: The are currently 7,774,965,420 people alive and approximately 162,000 of us die each day. Australia has 5,000 infected with 23 deaths. We wonder how many false positives are in that mix. (Dr Kaufman suggests it could be 80%.)
The government has essentially shut Australia down for six months. One of the objectives is to allow the hospitals to manage the crisis — flatten the curve — so that the numbers of the infected don’t overwhelm the system. I was told yesterday that an Adelaide hospital was almost not operating.
On the other hand, a doctor friend said there’s a case where this person was still viral shedding after 21 days — and that further “outbreaks” are inevitable. Flattening the curve only prolongs the predicament. So could we be in lockdown or semi-lockdown for up to a year until the government declares the solution — a “vaccine”?
How long will it take for this (mandatory) vaccine “solution” to arrive? Integral Molecular, the company that contributed to cures for deficiency virus (HIV), SARS and MERS is now one of the companies leading the charge to discover a vaccine for COVID-19. The president and CEO of Integral Molecular, Ben Doranz, says,
“I expect that the COVID-19 vaccine will be developed very quickly as well. I don’t know if that’s going to be months; I suspect it could be years.”
And if this is connected to a 5G immune response, or nitrogen dioxide, what then? However, to continue, this article provides commentary and tips as to how to defend your health.
You’re On Your Own
Be particularly careful if you have other medical conditions. 99% of those who died in Italy had other medical complications — as reported in the Italian Connection.
This section of the article is a collection of data from various doctors and health practitioners across the world. The MSM has suggested you ignore many of these, but as logic dictates, the more you look after your health now and boost your immune system the better. Surely?
Wow. And now the BBC is slamming a range of claims shared online. One of them was garlic.
The BBC stated, “We know, in general, that eating fruit and vegetables and drinking water can be good for staying healthy. However, there is no evidence specific foods will help fight this particular virus.” They named garlic — making a point about a woman in China that had to receive hospital treatment for a severely inflamed throat after consuming 1.5kg of raw garlic.
But one has to consider: Those with a number of conditions (e.g., hypertension, diabetes) seem to be particularly perceptible. What lifestyle and diet changes could lead to less risk? A better range of good foods of which garlic is one, I guess.
They continued, slamming “miracle minerals” (chlorine dioxide), sipping water, heat and hot drinks, and then used US televangelist Jim Bakker to discredit colloidal silver.
The BBC were warning people away from colloidal silver but there are many studies outlining its benefits. This article points to 50 scientific researched facts of colloidal silver. This study on Silver nanoparticles states,
“…the currently available data only reveals the surface of the potential benefits and the wide range of applications. Interactions between viral biomolecules and silver nanoparticles suggest that the use of nanosystems may contribute importantly for the enhancement of current prevention of infection and antiviral therapies.”
Other MSM “expert” pundits and sites like Snopes WARN us about the “Inaccurate messages… mutating online…” about the advice from “Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases” that sipping water may hinder the virus from entering the respiratory system.
But consider the science, once again.
“In a 2004 study of the coronavirus that causes sars, a cousin of the one that causes covid-19, a team from Hong Kong found that a higher initial load of virus—measured in the nasopharynx, the cavity in the deep part of your throat above your palate—was correlated with a more severe respiratory illness. Nearly all the sars patients who came in initially with a low or undetectable level of virus in the nasopharynx were found at a two-month follow-up to be still alive. Those with the highest level had a twenty- to forty-per-cent mortality rate. This pattern held true regardless of a patient’s age, underlying conditions, and the like.”
It seems logical that it might help to keep the throat moist as the virus becomes inactive at 50% RH. It seems many doctors (from Asia) are advocating sipping on drinks or water throughout the day — this to “flush” the virus down into the stomach during the early stages.
Why would experts on television discourage people from precautionary measures? Or from a range of detox methods and well-being tips?
There are obviously influencing factors that exacerbate the problem. The video posted by Terry Shulze correlates virus hotspots with nitrogen dioxide (NO2) — poor air quality. NO2 weakens the exact cell in the alveoli that SARS-Cov-2 directly attacks.
And Tuberculosis seems to have played a part in the 1918 flu pandemic, not H5N1 influenza alone. Several factors are a play. It has been noted that many corona virus-infected patients are alcoholics. Alcohol induces vitamin B1 deficiency. Should Vitamin B1 therapy be standard therapy for any patient with lung disease and a history of alcohol or tobacco consumption?
I hope the doctor-readers will add their knowledge to this collection — and comment on the efficacy of some of these.
Tips from Spain (China, and Japan)
1. Drink lots of hot liquids — Coffee, soups, tea or warm water. Take sips of warm water every 20 minutes as this keeps your mouth moist and washes any virus that entered your mouth into your stomach.
2. Gargle with an antiseptic in warm water Ex: Vinegar, salt or lemon – everyday if possible.
3. The virus attaches itself to hair and clothes, any detergent or soap kills it, but you must take a bath or shower when you get in from the street. If you cannot wash your clothes daily, hang them in direct sunlight which also neutralizes the virus.
4. Wash metallic surfaces very carefully.
5. Don’t smoke.
6. Wash your hands every 20 minutes using any soap that foams and do it for 20 seconds and wash your hands thoroughly.
7. Eat fruits and vegetables – try to elevate your zinc levels and not just vitamin C levels.
8. Animals do not spread virus to people – It’s a person to person transmission.
9. Try to avoid getting the common flu because it will weaken your system and try to avoid eating and drinking cold things.
10. If you feel any discomfort in your throat or a sore throat is coming on, attack it immediately using the above methods. The virus enters the system this way and remains for 3 or 4 days within the throat before it passes into the lungs.
Each doctor will have their own views, but the other day I communicated with Dr John Pridgeon — yes, brother of Russell — and he stressed the importance of Vitamin C. Gumshoe published the article on “Intravenous Vitamin C Treatment for Coronavirus and Related Illnesses”. I have been a fan of C for decades, and this quote from Karin Munsterhjelm, MD, Finland,
“It is of great importance for all doctors to be informed about intravenous vitamin C. When a patient is already in hospital severely ill, this would be the best solution to help save her or his life.”
A huge body of research says copper kills bacteria and viruses by touch, starting in under a minute, Cornell reports. “Many scientists have confirmed this in labs and hospitals. Who knew?”
“Tests by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and others show copper kills cold and flu viruses plus dangerous germs like MRSA. (It has not been tested on Ebola yet.) The EPA now urges hospitals to install copper “touch surfaces”, like doorknobs, faucets, and bed rails. Several hospitals have tried copper in hospital rooms with good results. Infections caught by patients dropped by half.”
A new report published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings found that sauna bathing is associated with a reduction in the risk of “vascular diseases, such as high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, neurocognitive diseases, nonvascular conditions, such as pulmonary diseases, mental health disorders, and mortality. Furthermore, sauna bathing alleviated conditions such as skin diseases, arthritis, headache, and flu.”
And then onto baking soda. Healthyandnaturalworld cites Dr Volney S. Cheney’s 1924 book, Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Medical Uses, where he recorded his experience with treating flu. “He observed that people who were treated with baking soda either remained healthy or they developed a milder version of the disease. The substance has an alkalizing effect on the body, which is linked to better health and disease prevention.”
I have never tried baking soda — but I swear by my Kangen water machine that provides alkaline, ionized water.
Then there are those that love Horseradish, claiming the plant and is particularly potent in the treatment of sinusitis and it clears upper respiratory passages. Find here the benefits of drinking lemon water and ginger lemon tea. And here how to make garlic syrup for chest infections.
There are many healing herbs for you to choose from: nettle leaf, peppermint, ginger, yarrow, elderberry, chamomile, red clover, catnip, and echinacea. Cinnamon and Honey supposedly have antibacterial and antiviral properties. Does an Epsom Salt Bath help your body to detox, improve circulation, strengthen your immune system?
Vitamin D helps to speed up the healing process, zinc prevents viruses from reproducing, and vitamin C strengthens your immune system. But Andrew Kaufman MD suggests getting your Vitamin D naturally (good foods and sunlight) as opposed to manufactured supplements. The supplements act as a negative feedback system and may hinder natural processes.
Whether herbal steams (using thyme, eucalyptus, peppermint, rosemary, oregano or blends of) assist fighting the virus I have no idea.
Dr Paul Cottrell
Gumshoe posted his video in one of the articles. He says the medical system will not be able to take care of you — that you need to boost your immune system, and tells us what he is doing (HERE at 56 min) — and suggests you build up your “tool box”.
This is what Paul is doing to boost his immune system: Multivitamins, minerals, vitamin c, zinc, NMN (a form of vitamin B3), C60, DNA Force (PQQ Pyrroloquinoline quinone), Coenzyme Q10, Iodine, filtered water and no flouride.
He has discussed the virus with other researchers in Europe, and if you get sick, they looked at tripanoid and lignoid compounds, protease inhibitors (I couldn’t identify the brand he suggested) with Lora, Calendula (ingested for its anti-inflammatory and antispasmolytic effects), Licorice root and Birch bark.
If you get reinfected and your body suffers a cytocine storm, you have to calm your immune system down. He suggests turmeric and rosemary (but you need a lot of it).
Colloidal silver will also boost the immune system, and says the US government is going start producing big amounts.
A Dr Vladimir Zelenko from New York state announced he is treating patients with hydroxychloroquine and Z-Paks — and suggests a 100% success rate on 350 patients. He posted a video about his findings, and thanked Trump profusely. But the video has now “gone” — the video violated YouTube’s Terms of Service.
However a French study finds anti-malarial and antibiotic combo could reduce COVID-19 duration. On 18 March 2020 BGR reported that France is cautiously exploring the anti-malaria drug, and that “Tests with anti-malaria Plaquenil showed that the COVID-19 virus disappeared after six days in 75% of patients in a limited study.”
It seems government advice is keep washing your hands, keep away from others and wait — wait for a vaccine.
The MSM, Youtube and Facebook have been “disappearing” any alternative suggestions for health — including those posted by medical practitioners. It must a well orchestrated campaign. It seems they do not want the public to realize that a healthy body — a person that has possibly gone through a detox regime, and is boosting their immune system in multiple ways — is a huge advantage for allowing the body to compete with pathogens and/or an engineered viruses.
Apologies for a long and rambling article. I’m sure I have forgotten many tips. If I find them, I’ll add them as comments.
UPDATE 5 April 2020
The advice from WHO. As I said you’re on your own.
