Nasal Hygiene with Nathan Jones & Dr. Peter McCullough
First, a bit of history. From the time that Ignaz Semmelweiss first wrote about the need for physicians to wash their hands between patients and the time that it became the standard of care (or mandated because it wasn’t being done) was 150 years. Semmelweiss was ridiculed, laughed at, and discredited, but history proved him correct. Washing our hands and our nose are simple hygienic ways that we can stop the spread of bacteria and viruses.
Nasal hygiene is more important to our health than washing our hands. Washing our hands helps stop the spread of infections, but how often do you really get sick through your hands? Practically zero. You get sick when you touch your hands to your face, your nose, and your eyes, where bacteria and viruses can easily enter the body.
In today’s episode of The Voice of a Nation, Founder, and CEO, Nathan Jones, and Dr. Peter McCullough provide the roadmap to good nasal hygiene and why it matters. Below you’ll find additional studies to help you become better informed on the many benefits of nasal hygiene.
Using Nasal Sprays to Combat SARS-CoV-2 – Sept. 2020
Researchers concluded that using a nasal spray that deactivates the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the nose, “may not only prevent the person-to-person spread of SARS-CoV-2 but may also diminish the severity of disease in patients by limiting the spread and decreasing viral load delivered to the lungs.” Read the study from (JAMA), The Journal of the American Medical Association.
Further Evidence of Xylitol’s Effectiveness Against SARS-CoV-2, H1N1, and Other Viruses – Jan. 2021
In this study, researchers used an electron microscope to take pictures of xylitol’s and grapefruit seed extract’s (GSE) interaction with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. They concluded, “Combination therapy with GSE and xylitol may prevent the spread of viral respiratory infections not just for SAR-CoV-2 but also for future H1N1 or other viral epidemics. GSE significantly reduces the viral load while xylitol prevents the virus attachment to the core protein on the cell wall.” Read the Study.
Nasal Irrigation Reduces Symptoms Related to SARS-CoV-2 – Sept. 2020
In this interim analysis, researchers evaluated the effect irrigating the nose and sinuses had on reducing symptoms related to SARS-CoV-2. They found, “The effect of nasal irrigation on symptom resolution was substantial, with nasal congestion and headache resolving a median of 7 to 9 days earlier in the intervention groups. Our analysis suggests that nasal irrigations may shorten symptom duration and may have potential as a widely available and inexpensive intervention to reduce disease burden among those affected.” Read the Study.
Dilute Povidone-Iodine Nasal/Oral Washes for the Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19
The SARS-CoV-2 virus is transmitted in the air and settles in the nose, and multiplies for days before it invades the body. When sick with nasal congestion, headache, fever, and body aches, the source of symptoms is the virus in the nose. The virus must be killed in the nasal cavity at least twice a day after coming back home for prevention and up to every four hours during active treatment. This is very important with the Omicron variant, which multiplies 70 times faster than the prior strains of the virus. Read the post by Dr. McCullough.
