Nutrition and Natural Strategies Offer Hope Against COVID-19

In this interview, repeat guest Dr. Andrew Saul, editor-in-chief of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, reviews what we currently know about vitamin C (ascorbic acid) for the prevention and treatment of novel coronavirus COVID-19. As noted by Saul, much of the information about vitamin C for the coronavirus is currently coming out of China. Meanwhile, in the U.S., a lot of nutritional advice is being censored and tagged as "fake news."   Mortality Rate Is Likely Vastly Overestimated At the time of this interview, March 17, 2020, COVID-19 has triggered mass hysteria — in the United States at least. Countries around the world, including the U.S., are also quarantining, closing down borders, implementing curfews and generally recommending or enforcing isolation of the populace. But this is all for the most part a preventive strategy. Are people infected? Yes. Are people dying? Yes. But we're talking about deaths in the thousands, not hundreds o

Zinc and Quercetin Benefits: Importance During Pandemic (November 2022)

Zinc  provides immune support amongst other functions. However, for zinc to work effectively in the body to boost immune system function, zinc has to be pushed into the cells which would require an ionophore. An ionophore is a substance that transports particles across the cell wall barrier into the center of the cell. Ionophores are fat-soluble molecules that bind to ions to help move them across cell membranes. Without the right ionophore, elemental zinc is poorly absorbed and will remain stuck in the bloodstream where it cannot be used by the body’s cells.  Many substances can act as ionophores for zinc, one being the antioxidant quercetin. Thus, taking quercetin along with zinc may provide additional benefits to an immune-boosting protocol. Therefore, zinc ionophores (e.g. Quercetin) can likely be used with zinc supplement to act as antiviral against many RNA viruses including influenza and COVID-19. In short, the major benefit of taking quercetin with zinc is that quercetin will

How to Use Resveratrol for COVID Spike Protein-Related Symptoms

The long-lasting syndromes of over 200 symptoms in multiple organ systems associated with long COVID and COVID vaccine injuries have rewritten the records of human disease history. We are astonished to witness such complicated viral infection sequelae and such widespread and complex vaccine injuries. Among multiple injuries and toxins associated with COVID-19, the fundamental injury is associated with the spike protein. Initially hailed as a key to open the door to cells and serve as a basis for the development of COVID-19 “vaccines,” more and more evidence shows that the spike protein is a toxic protein. It is capable of turning off the body’s defensive responses (e.g., type I interferon ); switching off the energy supply chain of mitochondria and the self-healing process (e.g., self-repairing DNA ) of our cells; and turning on chronic inflammatory pathways . The SARS-CoV-2 virus also mediates the dysregulation of autophagy , one of our cell’s key self-healing processes. Systemic

Long COVID in Kids: Symptoms, and Treatment

Kids don’t get serious illness from a COVID-19 infection as often as adults, but they can still face complications. Some people who develop a COVID-19 infection can experience long-term effects, or   long COVID . Anyone who has had a COVID-19 infection is at risk for this condition — even children. What is long COVID? Long COVID  is when you develop new, recurrent, or chronic health problems after an initial illness with COVID-19. The timeline of these symptoms is important. That’s because COVID-19 symptoms typically resolve a few days to weeks after the illness. In general, someone will get a diagnosis of long COVID when symptoms continue at least 4 weeks after the original infection. How common is long COVID in kids? Among children who have had COVID-19, it’s likely that  up to 10%  may experience long COVID. But the reports on how often long COVID occurs among kids vary quite a bit. That’s likely because the illness includes a lot of sympt
