Chloroquine use in Korea and China
Chloroquine has been used in South Korea with promising results that may account for the lower morbidity and mortality rates. China has also looked at Chloroquine use in fighting the Coronavirus (Wuhan Flu). Here is a link that discusses Zinc and Chloroquine use, but the intriguing aspect is the Chloroquine effect on viruses. It is cheap and readily available. Chris Martenson- your thoughts?
I am very interested in this topic as well. I am wondering, for those of us who cannot get a prescription for Chloroquine Phosphate, will fish grade CP, used in aquariums work, or will it do more harm than good?
There is no available Chloroquine Phosphate in USA or in Korea. Here they use Hydroxychloroquine which is very similar. This is what the Koreans experimented with in the above video. The side effects are if a person takes too much can destroy the retina of the eye. https://www.drugs.com/hydroxychloroquine.html
I would not want to take it only as a last resort and not a preventative. Its probably why they used it on patients that were not doing well and trying anything as would be the case with a an unknown virus.
If a person wants some, they could ask their doctor for a prescription. Id just tell them you are planning a trip to some tropical destination third world country and want it in case of contracting Malaria. It also is prescribed for symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
Interesting note: I saw this on another thread, a post from reflector. In Italy they experimented with a drug that works and it is also for arthritis. There is a trend that arthritis drugs are working to halt Coronavirus19 that needs to be investigated. http://www.ansa.it/english/news/science_tecnology/2020/03/11/coronavirusarthritis-drug-seems-to-work_8113f9d9-9bb8-4181-9c02-3e314c30e7e9.html
Thank you this is very interesting. I watched the medcram video, and saw that Chloroquine acts as an ionophore for the Zinc to transport it into the cell to kill the virus. I wonder if other antimalarials, like quinine would do the same?
Is this the same as quinine? Like in gin and tonic? You can buy quinine for leg cramps. (I have no idea how it works, lol.)
In Oz we can only get those drugs via prescription. Cinchona bark, however, is readily available from herb suppliers since people use it to make their own tonic water. It’s in my stash as a Hail Mary in case I have to nurse someone and we’re at the stage of treating ICU patients in hospital corridors by asking them to blow into paper bags.
hydroxychloroquine produces negative eye side effects after years of dosing for arthritis. 25 years never heard a patient complain about hydroxychloroquine , I would take it in a second.
I reviewed the part on zinc to control corona . The idea seems to be chloroquine transport zinc into the cell , am ionosphere seems to be the only function . Real fulvic acid the low molecular weight fraction of humic acids can transport zinc ions which why we use it in zinc supplements take for plants and animals. The fulvic can enter the nucleus where it prevents free radical damage and many other factors. Using zinc ions like zinc sulfate or a zinc supplement I take 2 ozs per day of fulvic with 50 ml elemental zinc per day. I am not saying this will cure or prevent anything but it’s good nutrition and normalizes essential zinc , selenium and Polyphenols . Fulvic acids are the basis of which shiligit is recommended in Ayurvedic medicine for resistance. Wujinsan.com is best source . growshops sell it as Ful-power. I am going to put a utube up on my Channel that present the clues so you can do your own thing instead of relying on bureaucracy.
It’s basically the same @karenchantal but in much higher doses.
It’s being tried in the clinical settings to compensate for acute symptoms such as lactic acidosis and inflammatory cytokine storms. There is no evidence that low doses in mild or presymptomatic infections have a positive effect. Acidosis only occurs when pneumonia begins. Cytokine storms correlate with pneumonia as well. But inhibiting cytokine production without a cytokine storm may suppress the immune system’s ability to respond during a mild infection. It makes sense in the clinical setting but there is no proof that it is useful as a daily supplement. Rather the contrary. Chloroquine can be harmful.
