Another Potential Help for Covid: Dandelion Tea
This is my story, I make no claims to anything, I am not a doctor, but this is working for me.
I got Covid in spite of basically sheltering in place, wearing a mask and being a hermit (easy for me, I’m an artist) the past 4 months… only going out to bike ride or to the grocery shop, and then in the evenings to avoid crowds. My doc said he thinks it must have been on my hair, gotten to my pillow and then my mouth. It’s that freaking contagious. And seeing as I’ve not been around people, what else could it be? (I thought maybe I picked up something else, and then thought, “How? I’m not around people. What? This is the most contagious thing around.”)
Meanwhile, a doctor friend had sworn up and down about dandelion tea after curing her whole family AND the cat with it.
On the 4th day of the scratchy sore throat, when elderberry syrup, and all my other immune supports weren’t knocking it out, which is normally what happens with anything I start to come down with, I started with dandelion tea*. (Essentially I never get sick for more than a day and a half, don’t get a flu shot, etc.).
* LOL, I weeded my garden! Make sure the dandelion you use isn’t sprayed with anything.
Dandelion knocked it way back, the doc who told me about it said Covid can’t reproduce in the environment dandelion creates. Luckily I also found a doc that prescribed HCQ in America on day 6, which I am now on, along with a ZPak, and all my other supplements (dandelion tea, 220 mg zinc/day, Quercetin, D3, NAC, Moringa, Immunel, elderberry syrup, Kick Ass Immune and Get Over It – 2 great immune supports, Oscillococcinum, Colloidal Silver via nebulizer and about a zillion other vitamins and herbs.).
It’s day 9, I have a slight sore throat and fever today. I’m 64 with blood type A+, so need all the help I can get, even tho I’m strong.
Here’s the link on preparing dandelion and general info:
Dosage 1/4 C
1st day 4x / day
2nd day 3x / day
3rd day 2x / day
4th – 12th day 1x/day
I am doing 4 or 5 dosages a day. It is definitely making a difference. When I feel the Covid is on the way out maybe I’ll cut back. Maybe. You can’t OD on dandelion tea and it cleanses and strengthens the liver.
Hope this helps some of you out there!
Peggy, good find. I have also included dandelion tea in my anti inflamatories kit along with milk thistle and berberine. I think the liver plays a big part in the inflamitory phase. Give it support.
Wow, even cured the cat!
Edit: Another anti inflamitory : curcumin/tumeric + black pepper + a good fat. According to a new article at mercola.com. this may also inhibit covid-19.
I am very glad that this worked for you, that is great news. That being said, without any scientific evidence, I don’t think people should emulate this. I have not done the research, maybe someone else can. But do we know the active alkaloids/flavonoids in Dandelions are that could act in anti-viral or anti-inflammatory manner?
In the past 24horus I’ve seen thes forums being hit with many annecdotal stories.
