Covid advice please!
Thanks so much for your detailed reply Tonya, I’ll go and research those now.
Thanks Canuck21, I’ll look into all of that. Hopefully Dr Tina Piers video will be posted up soon.
I’d be willing to pay hundreds of pounds to try proper human form ivermectin, as much as it is terrible price gouging, just to be sure that I’ve thoroughly tested that treatment.
Hi, Steve, I had wild type Covid-19 in early 2020. I also had a splitting, double temple headache. I traced it to a spike in blood pressure. I am normally low normal range Aleve tablets helped. Also, try calming breathing exercises, 4 counts in through nose, 6 counts out through mouth.
Do the high vitamin D, pound it as folks have said above, 20,000 IU 2x per day, etc.
Also, dandilion root tea has been helpful. Also, natural licorice root lozenges (not anise) or tea can settle the digestion and is anti viral.
You just have to keep up your healing routine, no matter how long it takes. I found it tedious, but I did it for 25 days, finally kicked the bastard out.
I also like berberine, tumeric and milk thistle seed for heart and liver inflamation.
Good luck. Prayer helps.
Edit: Don’t forget NAC, 600mg 2x per day.
Thanks Kunga, just ordered some dandelion tea.
Did Chris not remove NAC from his recommended supplements a while back? I could be mistaken, but I have some and hasn’t been taking it for that reason. Perhaps he was only referring to not taking it pre-infection.
Also, don’t forget zinc and quercitin and/or green tea.
Many deficient in zinc, magnesium, vitamin D.
Gotta hit this creature from several directions while strengthening your terrain.
I’ve got anticoagulants in my own protocol. Baby aspirin twice/day & Vitamin-E 400-800 IU (short term during second half of acute phase).
Viral replication is supposed to be about done after the first week, & immune modulation and anticoagulation comes to front burner from there.
Before I got my HCQ from overseas pharmacy, I had some light tonic water on hand for low dose quinine. Sugar free tonic has very little quinine, but “Fever Tree Refreshingly Light Indian” tonic water is low sugar, & heavy quinine. Ain’t much quinine in commercial tonic (83mg/ltr), but better to light a candle than curse the darkness, & you’ve got to drink something.
Curcumin (or Termeric if you can’t get curcumin) and Quercetin also got a lot of chatter back in the early days for anti-inflammatory action. Both of these are also good iron chelators, so may help mop up any inflammatory free iron coming from clot breakdown / macrophages.
Godspeed, & hope you see better days soon.
You might find the results of the study below somewhat encouraging, Stephen. Essentially the researchers found that those with a covid headache were less likely to progress to a more severe form of the disease. You didn’t mention a fever, shortness of breath or respiratory symptoms so that is a very good sign and for all you know it could be the ivermectin which kept other symptoms at bay.
From what I have read, some people with covid can have an extended headache so while I certainly sympathize, it would be incorrect to conclude that it means the covid is getting worse, even though it may feel like it .
You aren’t eating but you need fluids and nourishment. My suggestion along with what others have mentioned, is to up the fluids..sip juice, broth or whatever you can stomach. Be aware of that anxious voice in your head and what it is telling you, sit outside and soak up some sunshine and try to focus on healing thoughts. It may take some time but you are going to be okay.
You may just have to see this through and let it run its course. Hopefully it won’t become long covid. Seems unlikely given all the actions you have undertaken.
NAC is useful! It helped get rid of the crushing fatigue that plagued me for four months and later it loosened the stuck crap in my lungs. I think it deals with free radicals that come with viral infections. I don’t really know what I’m talking about of course.
I personally had terrible problems using turmeric or ginger while I was acutely sick. It would make my lungs feel like they were swelling up to the point that I almost went to the hospital. Mysterious.
Salty brothy soups, lots of water, epsom salt baths. Wim Hoff breathing. Tylenol. Those are things that helped me a long the way.
Don’t drink coffee while taking ivermectin; it seems to negate its effect. Take ivermectin with a meal.
Not mentioned yet is a home oxygen concentrator. I was fortunate to have one on hand that I had earlier bought used for a teardown study of zeolite PSA. There are other reasons to get one (read Amazon comments) but it pays for itself if it keeps you out of hospital.
2 liters/minute will do but the ones that go above 5 can also be used for nebulizing. You can run it in an automobile through an inverter (but you will probably need someone else to transfer it). The portable battery powered ones work off 12 volts but the one I have (which arrived too late to do any good) seems kind of whimpy.
DEDAKJ seems a reliable brand. What appears to be the same ~$350 unit is sold by others. I did not use the ozone option. That seemed counterproductive!
I relied on it for two weeks. Still use it to combat the sudden tiredness caused by a couple point drop in pO2.
