Consider adding some or all of these to your medicine cabinet, depending on your personal situation and budget. In some cases, specific brands are recommended because I prefer them or have found the formulation to be more effective than others. Be sure to purchase quality products from retailers you trust. Whenever possible choose organic.
The Early Treatment Strategies page provides instructions for how these items are used.
- Nebulizer – a nebulizer is a small air compressor that turns a liquid into a mist, allowing you to breathe it into your lungs and nasal passages. Nebulizers are available without a prescription at several local independent pharmacies and online. There is typically a small cup into which you would add liquid, and then breathe that liquid using a face mask. Many liquids can be used in a nebulizer to prevent infection and help your lungs function more efficiently. Hydrogen peroxide and hypochlorous acid can be used and are discussed below. Sterile saline can be used alone and has a soothing effect on irritated lungs. Dr. Jockers has a good writeup with references on his website about nebulizing hydrogen peroxide: https://drjockers.com/nebulizing/.
- Neti-pot – a neti pot pushes fluid (usually a saline solution) through your nasal passages, clearing out mucous and toxins. The saline solution can also help soothe dry nasal passages. Many brands and styles of neti pots are available at local pharmacies or grocery stores and online. One common brand of nasal irrigation is the NelliMed Sinus Irrigation System.
- Pulse oximeter – a pulse oximeter measures the amount of oxygen in your blood (your oxygen saturation in %) and your pulse. Oxygen saturation is a measure of how well the oxygen from your lungs is getting to your organs and cells. An oxygen saturation reading of 95% or above is considered normal. If your oxygen saturation level drops below 95, it can be a clue that your lungs aren’t working efficiently enough to deliver the amount of oxygen your body needs. Poor circulation and nail polish can affect the reading of your device. Check your oxygen level when you are healthy to know your baseline.
- Blood pressure monitor – any kind, as long as you know how to use it. It’s a good idea to check your blood pressure regularly so you know your baseline. A change in your typical blood pressure can be a clue that something is amiss, including illness or disease.
- Thermometer – any kind of thermometer is fine as long as you know how to use it.
- Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) – either food grade or the regular kind are fine for a few days. If you use hydrogen peroxide for longer than that, get the food grade product. Replace your hydrogen peroxide every 6 months. Write the purchase date on the bottle! Food grade 3% hydrogen peroxide is available at HealthNut, but you can use topical 3% hydrogen peroxide in a pinch also.l
- Saline solution – either commercially made or make your own. To make “normal” saline at home, use a sanitized spoon and cup: Boil just over 1 cup of purified water for 20 minutes. Pour 1 cup of the water into a sanitized jar with a lid. Put in ½ tsp of non-iodized salt. Let cool before use. Keep refrigerated to minimize bacteria.
- Lugol’s Solution – a solution of iodine and iodide. Available at many health food stores and online. Locally available at Timberlake Health & Wellness. Often added to HOCI or H2O2 in a nebulizer.
- Colloidal Silver is an antimicrobial agent. Available at many health food stores and online. Locally available at Timberlake Health & Wellness. Often added to HOCI or H2O2 in a nebulizer.
- Essential oils – such as Thieves, Red Cedar Bliss, (or other anti-germ/immunity boosting blends), lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint. Thyme and red thyme are specifically good for lung issues. People are having great results with 10 drops essential oil in a bowl of hot, steaming water. Lean over and breathe the steam x 10 min, cover your head with a towel to make a tent. Peppermint, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils also break down plasmids.
- Dandelion tincture – a liquid available at health food stores or online. Dandelion prevents the spike protein from binding to the ACE2 receptors in blood vessels and organs, and can detach it if it’s already there. Best shortly before you eat, it also acts to stimulate bile flow and is a digestive aid. Herb Pharm is a quality source for tinctures. Their products are available at local health food stores and online.
- Vital 9 by BioPure – A combo of 9 different botanicals with known anti-SARS COV-1 or anti-coronavirus activity.
- CDS (chlorine dioxide), both as a preventive strategy and as a treatment strategy. See Andreas Kalcker’s website for more information.
Part A and B, as well as premade CDS solution are available at https://kvlab.com/ and https://www.mmshealthy4life.com/
- Good salt. Celtic sea salt is my favorite kind – any brand, as long as it’s gray. This is a good source of trace minerals which you need to stay healthy. Redmond’s Real Salt is another good kind. Not all “Himalayan” salt is authentic. The Weston A. Price Foundation has a helpful article on salt:
- Homemade oral rehydration solution – 1 liter water + ½ tsp Celtic salt + 6 tsp good quality honey (you can use sugar, but it’s not good for the immune system). I have a few other recipes here.
- Activated charcoal – a binder used to mop up toxins in your belly when you’re feeling sick. Available at any drugstore and many supermarkets in the vitamin section.
- Intelligent binders ((ones that remove only the toxins and waste, and leave your minerals (magnesium, calcium, zinc, etc) alone) – chlorella, fibers, citrus pectin. This handout has information about choosing a binder.
- Melatonin – this balances your immune system
- Aspirin, nattokinase or Boluoke (lumbrokinase) – this helps to thin out any of your blood cells that are sticking together (common in Covid infections and from the vaccine)
- Famotidine (Pepcid) – This alkalinizes the body, and is also an H2 antihistamine
- N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) – a precursor of glutathione, a molecule very important in detoxification. NAC helps your body detoxify from the Covid infection and from the graphene oxide in the covid injections. It’s also good for helping to thin mucus.
- Ascorbic Acid (commonly known as vitamin C) Vitamin C is a great antioxidant and supports the immune system.
- Quercetin helps zinc get into your cells so the zinc can activate the immune system. Quercetin also inhibits the secretion of phospholipase A2.
- Zinc activates your immune system. If you take zinc longer than 5-7 days, you need to balance it with some copper. The proper ratio is to take 2 mg of copper for every 15 mg of zinc. Copper supplements are available at health food stores and online, and many multivitamins contain copper. Check your supplements to see how much zinc and copper you’re currently taking and have a plan for additional copper if you need some.
- Cod liver oil – an excellent source of vitamins A and D. Whenever possible it’s best to get your vitamins and minerals from food. Cod liver oil is actual food, thus it’s one of the preferred ways to get vitamins A and D. Another good source is liver.
- Vitamin K2 – either as a supplement or in 4 tablespoons of butter per day. (vitamins A, D, K all work together). K2 is important because it tells the Vitamin D to go to your bones instead of your veins.
- Vitamin D3 – 50,000 unit caps for use when you’re sick
- Vitamin A – 100,000 unit caps. Choose vitamin A that is formulated from retinal palmate or mixed tocopherols. Beta carotene isn’t real vitamin A and your body has to work to convert it into a form that it can use.
- Propolis spray and/or tincture from Ki Science: Propolis is a mix of beeswax and other resins collected by the bees, and is an excellent support for many parts of your immune system.
- PropolAir Propolis (Bee Pollen) Diffuser and organic propolis capsules This is great for lung problems, asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia. https://beehealthyfarms.com/17-propolair-diffusers-vaporizers You want the Propol Therapy, Propolis Diffuser Model A4 at the bottom of the page, along with the Organic Propolair Refill Cartridges, BIO. One capsule lasts 122 hours.
- Arsenicum album 200C (homeopathic) used successfully in Cuba as a Covid preventative. Available locally at Tap Roots and possibly at other local health food stores.
- Cistus incanus tea. This has anti-viral, anti-Lyme, anti-fungal, anti-parasite properties. My favorite brand is from Ki Science. https://www.kiscience.com/product/cistus-incanus-infusion/ Cistus tea is a detoxifying agent. Start SLOW, especially if you’re sensitive. This tea requires a special three-step brewing process. Instructions for that are here
I have a some of these items available for purchase at my office: Aller-C, NAC, BioPure Vital 9, BrioTech Topical Skin Spray, vitamin A 25,000 units, vitamin D3 50,000 units, Ki Science cistus tea and propolis tincture, cod liver oil, selenium and several intelligent binder options.
Prescription options if you want to add to your defenses:
Ivermectin by prescription, 0.2 mg/kg/dose twice/week. Available at some local pharmacies. Compounding pharmacies can make a liquid or capsules. You can order from India at https://www.alldaychemist.com/
Hydroxychloroquine: as of Sept 9, 2023, the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance does not include HCQ as part of their preventive protocol.
Some people alternate ivermectin one week, hydroxychloroquine the next week. Not all pharmacies dispense ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. I try to keep abreast of local suppliers. Here is a status update on the availability of some of these prescription options
Melatonin suppository 50 mg 3 x/week (from compounding pharmacy)
Alinia (generic nitazoxanide) is available from Grant Pharmacy – www.grantpharmacy.com to order from overseas without a prescription. Some US compounders are now starting to dispense it with a prescription at less than outrageous prices.
Budesonide, an inhaled steroid, can be very helpful to treat acute lung problems with inflammation due to COVID19, but I still like the inhaled propolis better, assuming you have it and the vaporizer available at home. Budesonide 1 mg/2cc via nebulizer twice a day for 7 days, by prescription.
