A Japanese Doctor treating COVID - 19 CASES is suggesting everyone should ensure your mouth and throat is moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Because even if the virus gets into your mouth drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your esophagus and into the stomach. And your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If the virus enters your windpipe and into the lungs it's dangerous so make sure they just get washed down and don't have a chance to lodge into your tissues.
LEMON IS ANTIVIRAL
Lemon is antiviral, shown in many studies that it has antiviral properties, so why not squeeze some fresh lemon in your water that your are sipping for extra protection from the COVID-19 virus.
GARLIC IS ANTIVIRAL
The fact that garlic has anti-viral properties is well known and old news so enjoy lots of garlic in your food during this time of worry and uncertainty.
COCONUT OIL HAS ANTIVIRAL PROPERTIES
Because coconut has been found to have antiviral properties scientists are researching right now if it has anti COVID-19 properties both in the Philippines and in the US. It is known to cause the outer membrane of viruses to weaken and break. There is lauric acid and monolaurin which cause disintegration of the virus envelope and inhibit the virus replicative cycle and they prevent the viral proteins from binding to the host cell membrane. Taking coconut oil is basically safe and risk free. Why not take a little coconut oil now anyway, before we know for sure that it offers protection against this virus.
News is that the Chinese found large doses of Vitamin C helped patients get well after getting the virus. We need a lot more vitamin C then we usually get so take this time to work on getting more vitamin C into your body through both food and supplemental sources.
MELATONIN PREVENTS FLUID BUILD UP IN THE LUNGS
The chief cause of death by the Wuhan virus is respiratory failure. That is, a person dies from suffocation. This is cause by the natural ability of the Corona virus to exacerbate or exaggerate the natural response of the human body to become inflamed so as to isolate infection. This response is caused by inflammasomes.
The inflammasome is a multiprotein intracellular complex that detects pathogenic microorganisms and sterile stressors, and that activates the highly pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1b (IL-1b) and IL-18. Inflammasomes also induce a form of cell death termed pyroptosis. Dysregulation of inflammasomes is associated with a number of autoinflammatory syndromes and autoimmune diseases.
Proinflammatory cytokines defend host cells from invading pathogens, but they are also capable of driving pathological inflammation . During viral infections, inflammation can act in dynamically opposing antiviral and proviral roles. Inflammatory responses can inhibit viral replication and lower infection, but inflammation also has the capacity to release a large number of virions, further disseminating viral infection to cells like macrophages which will spread the virus to various other tissues and organs in the host .
SARS, which is a corona virus, studies have shows that its lethalness depends in great part on its ability to cause an exaggerated response of inflammasomes in the human body.
SARS-CoV coronaviruses encode viroporin proteins to activate inflammasomes in order to facilitate viral dissemination. The recent discovery of the ORF3a viroporin further deepens understanding as to why SARS-CoV can exert so much damage when infecting hosts.
Melatonin’s powerful effects on Inflammasome storms
Scientific studies have already demonstrated that Melatonin is the organic compound used by the human body to moderate inflammatory responses.
Melatonin is well known for its chronobiotic effects, regulating biological functions tied to circadian rhythms. Numerous studies have revealed that melatonin exerts effects beyond the control of circadian oscillators. The NLRP3 inflammasome is now recognized as a target for melatonin! Melatonin is the reason why children under the age of 9 seldom exhibit severe symptoms. In fact, children may exhibit mild or even no symptoms at all, even though they have been infected by SARS-CoV-2 . How significant is the difference in melatonin production between children, adults and the elderly?
For most people, peak melatonin production is between the hours of 2 am to 3 am. The maximum melatonin levels measured in healthy adults between the ages of 65 to 70 years appeared to be around 49.3 picograms/ml (pg/ml). Adults more than 75 years of age only have maximum production levels of 27.8 pg/ml .
Young children, on the other hand, have extremely high melatonin levels, compared to adults. The maximum levels recorded for children showed a decline as age increased. Children between the ages of 1 to 5 had peak melatonin at 325 pg/ml, while those between the ages of 5 to 11 already declined to 133 pg/ml .
The fact that the pro-inflammatory cytokine storm effects are induced by the activation of NLRP3 inflammasomes, the ability of melatonin to INHIBIT NLRP3 inflammasome elevates this powerful molecule to a truly unique position in the fight against COVID-19. This also means that if a patient, regardless of age, has adequate melatonin, the infectiousness of COVID-19 will be greatly reduced, and the chances of developing ARDS/ALI significantly diminished.
As soon as anyone above 35 years of age, or who works at night, is infected, he should start receiving daily a dose of at least 1 mg of Melatonin to prevent the exaggerated response of inflammation in his lungs, which the Corona viruses are known to produce.
Melatonin, which is regularly sold in Health Food Stores, para-pharmacies and pharmacies for those wishing to benefit from its natural properties to aid in sleeping, is an easy solution to one symptom of Corona virus infection. It does not kill the virus, but it gives the body more time to do that job while insuring the lungs remain open to provide the necessary oxygen to the patient.
Why is such a simply solution not being used in hospitals? Because modern medical training does not prepare medical staff to be knowledgeable in how natural compounds, not sold by pharmaceutical companies can aid to cure disease.
HONEY IS ANTIVIRAL
So adding a little honey to some herbal tea or green tea and slowly sipping it will add another protective aspect to prevent getting COVID -19.
But especially Manuka honey from New Zealand where the bees feed on the Manuka bush to make this honey where science has found to be even more strongly antiviral. Be careful not to use too much if you have any blood sugar issues or a fungal infection. So in those cases just add a tiny amount to your tea.
While many people are taking vitamin D already, it's good to realize the antiviral immune enhancement that occurs when we keep our vitamin D levels up. It is helpful to add 2000 - 5000 units daily for preventing both the flu and COV-19.
Vitamin D is made by the body when exposed to sunlight. Populations near the equator are tested to have higher Vitamin D levels then populations in the northern hemisphere. People in the northern hemisphere experience severe deficiencies in recent times and rickets a disease caused by Vitamin D deficiency that causes bowl leggedness and bone problems is back on the rise.
Going in the sun is a good way to prevent viruses as the ultra violet rays kills viruses and bacteria while giving your body a chance to increase it's vitamin D levels that are scientifically proven to be anti viral.
HEAT KILLS THE VIRUS
According to a Dr. from Shenzhen Hospital who is being transferred to Wuhan to study the pneumonia virus further said that it is not a heat resistant virus and will be killed in an environment of 26 to 27 degrees celsius. Therefore, drink plenty of hot water to prevent the virus. As long as the body maintains heat, by drinking hot water and taking more ginger, garlic pepper and pepper the virus will disappear and completely when exposed to the sun.
When a fever hits take Gelsemium and take Bryonia for the dry cough, not a wet cough.
