Following on from my post in the Experiences thread (Where I think I may have contracted this virus already) I wanted to just post the brands I have used for guys here in the UK.

Vitamin C (Peak Supps) - On Amazon UK

NAC N-Acetyl-Cysteine (Troo Health Care) - On Amazon UK

some infromation regarding NAC and it's benefit for Lung conditions and other respiratory problems : https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/nac-benefits


Side note @ Simeon

I've noticed within the last 48 hours that whenever I take Vitamin C I start to experience a 'heavy / tight feeling' on my chest - I thought this may be Acid Reflux or something related to acidity but it does not seem to fit the bill and I am not knowledgeable enough to know what it could be. I've gone a day without taking it and have noticed the feeling has completely dissipated, is this something you've heard of?

I will be trying the buffered method today instead to see if it will bypass this feeling.

Interesting !
I have the same. I've been talking more liposomal C (5/10 g) as usual and I'm also feeling this tight feeling in my chest.
The thing is, I'm taking a shitload of other supps so I didn't even think it could be Vita C ... anyone else having this chest tight feeling ?
I'm experimenting with essential oils and was more leaning towards them irritating my lungs.

What are the potential side effects of using Vit C prophylactically, if you are over 80 and have other health conditions?

My parents are in this demographic and anything I can do to improve their chances would be welcome.

You might live longer and be more healthy if you take it daily like the Nobel price winner Linus Pauling:

I think the PH (2.1 - very acidic) of pure vitamin c is a valid concern for people sensitive to very acidic products. Although, I'm worried that a buffered version of vitamin c has reduce effectiveness or other side effects due to the additional ingredients; especially when consumed in megadoses.

My initial conclusion is that sodium ascorbate is best for maintenance and the pure stuff (or maybe even liposomal versions) is optimal when megadoseing and treating an illness. The aforementioned article also comes to the same conclusion.

Articles are one thing, but from my experience - most people get bloated by sodium ascorbate even if it's buffered.

Most people do better with pure powder. One orthomolecular MD I talked with in Germany said that based on his experience 10-15% of the population do better with the sodium ascorbate while the majority are fine with pure l-ascorbic acid. Most of my family and friends do better with pure l-ascorbic acid while one person I know likes the buffered version more.

Once you use it yourself, then you find the differences and which you prefer more. Acidity is not a concern becuase it's a nutrient and gets absorbed by the body. It's not for example citrus acidity that has to be broken down in a very different way.

Well if it comes down to bloat with buffered vs diarrhea with the pure stuff, I rather have the bloat.

I've got both versions so I'll report results whenever I test them.

RE: Health remedies and prevention for Coronavirus / flu
for symptomatic relief, I found that laying with a heating pad on my chest really helped that 'tight' lung feeling.

If you want to go really crazy, you can try a 'mustard plaster'. I have never tried it as I'm concerned about burning my skin, but I remember a kid I went to school with, he had old time german parents and they would give that too him every time he got sick https://thewellspring.org/mustard-plaste...ongestion/

Are you megadosing Zinc also ?
Taking more zinc (100mg picolinate per day) and megadosing liposomal C are the 2 latest changes I made to my regime, and I also feel this chest thightness.

Shared this in the pandemic thread where it does not belong - more like a treatment part:

Coronavirus: Vaccination can make the course of infection worse
Epoch Times March 14, 2020 Updated: March 14, 2020 12:11

Quote:Hope for a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 is clouded: researchers suspect that vaccinations worsen the course of the infection. Studies on so-called "infection-enhancing antibodies" in coronaviruses are cause for concern.

Quote:
One possible answer to this question is the antibody-enhanced amplification (ADE) of SARS-CoV-2. This may be triggered by the second contact with SARS-CoV or other corona viruses. ADE changes the immune response, leading to increased inflammation, lymphopenia or cytokinesis. All of these symptoms are associated with serious cases or deaths, ”writes Tetro.

However, further investigations are needed to make clear statements. If ADE turns out to be an actual phenomenon of SARS-CoV-2, conventional vaccinations worsen the situation. According to Tetro, this must be avoided as far as possible with a future Covid-19 vaccine.

I wouldn't recommend taking the vaccine even if it comes out fast. You can battle it down easily enough with vitamin C. Plus we know from experiences that many many new vaccines get their broad testing phase in the population. Many get pulled off the market since the side effects were way too high. Entire countries ban certain vaccines due to too many strong side effects including deaths and severe life-long repercussions.

Currently you don't have that anyway as an option but might think about it in a few months.

RE: Health treatment and prevention for Coronavirus / flu
My neighbor has been coughing for days now.

Yesterday the guy living across began coughing as well.

I'm now beginning to feel cold and shivering and feeling sore deep down in the thorax.

I hope it isn't covid, but there's nothing to do I guess, except up my vit c dose.

RE: Health treatments and prevention for Coronavirus / flu
For those people looking for a protocol from a reliable source other than, or in conjunction with, a Vitamin C regimen:

Quote:There are many integrative therapies with well-established antiviral and immune-modulating properties. Details regarding these therapies can be found in Life Extension’s Influenza, Pneumonia, and Immune Senescence protocols. The interventions described in these protocols, though not necessarily validated as effective specifically for COVID-19, are nevertheless advisable upon onset of symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections.

For upper respiratory tract infections in general, including those caused by some types of coronaviruses, Life Extension has long recommended swift action to help bolster your immune response and mitigate the likelihood of a severe disease course. At the first signs of an upper respiratory tract infection (eg, sneezing, coughing, feeling unwell, mild fever), make an appointment with your doctor then take the following:

1) Zinc Lozenges: Completely dissolve in mouth one lozenge containing 18.75 mg of zinc acetate every two waking hours. Do not exceed 8 lozenges daily, and do not use for more than three consecutive days.

2) Garlic: Take 9,000‒18,000 mg of a high-allicin garlic supplement each day until symptoms subside. Take with food to minimize stomach irritation.

3) Vitamin D: If you do not already maintain a blood level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D over 50 ng/mL, then take 50,000 IU of vitamin D the first day and continue for three more days and slowly reduce the dose to around 5,000 IU of vitamin D each day. If you already take around 5,000 IU of vitamin D every day, then you probably do not need to increase your intake.

4) Cimetidine: Take 800‒1,200 mg a day in divided doses. Cimetidine is a heartburn drug that has potent immune enhancing properties. (It is sold in pharmacies over-the-counter.)

5) Melatonin: 3‒50 mg at bedtime.

Do not delay implementing the above regimen. Once viruses that cause respiratory infections infect too many cells, they replicate out of control and strategies like zinc lozenges will not be effective. Treatment must be initiated as soon as symptoms manifest. Although this regimen has not been studied specifically in the context of COVID-19, there is little reason not to implement this strategy along with contacting a qualified healthcare provider as soon as possible after onset of upper respiratory tract infection symptoms.

https://www.lifeextension.com/protocols/...a0d26c8b0#


I was unfamiliar with Cimetidine, so I did a bit of research:

Quote:Cimetidine. Cimetidine is usually used to treat heartburn. A little-known side effect of cimetidine is that it inhibits the production of T-suppressor cells (Mitsuishi T et al 2003). In doing so, it boosts immune function by preventing the immune system from turning itself down.

Cimetidine has shown other immune-modulating effects such as increasing natural killer cell activity and boosting levels of the natural immune stimulants interleukin-2 (IL-2) and gamma interferon (Bourinbaiar AS et al 1996; Kabuta H et al 1989; Kapinska-Mrowiecka M et al 1996). Human studies demonstrate cimetidine’s efficacy against herpes and viral warts (Glass AT et al 1996; Gooptu C et al 2000; Mitsuishi T et al 2003; Ronna T et al 1995; Shields CL et al 1999).

Since cimetidine is safe for most people, taking 800 to 1000 mg at night (or 200 mg three times a day and then 400 mg at night) seems like an effective therapy to temporarily turn up the immune system. Cimetidine in 200-mg tablets can be purchased over-the-counter at pharmacies. The directions in the over-the-counter package insert say that up to 800 mg/day is safe, but some published studies in which cimetidine was used as an antiviral agent have used up to 1000 mg/day (Choi YS et al 1993).

(Only 3mg before bed used to mess up my sleep completely).

Not saying melatonin is bad ... It's just that it's this kind of supplement on which people react in a very different way. Takes some time to find the right dosage

It's fine for daily dose, but I would use pure powder in case if you got sick. You don't want to eat 30 of those a day with the added ingredients.

Melatonin above 5mg gets tricky. It can put you right to sleep and going upwards to 10mg is already stretching it. I know from orthomolecular MDs who are super-careful with melatonin just as they are with iron supplements.

There are supplements you can take at higher doses, but others - you gotta be careful with. 50mg is no way a safe dose at all.

A normal dose of melatonin is 1 - 3 mgs, and if you don't take it regularly take a very small does. its not a sleeping pill but rather a hormone and it doesn't always work the way you expect. More is not always better.

If all you have is a 3mgs invest in a pill cutter, they only cost a few bucks and are well worth it.

RE: Health treatments and prevention for Coronavirus / flu
A lot of good advice on this thread.

Coronavirus is a virus obviously, but if you get a non-viral infection here is some advice. (bacterial infections may accompany a viral infection, or precede or follow them. You need to treat bacterial infections because they will compromise your immune system).

When I first start getting a sore or scratchy throat, I gargle with salt water. I try to do this about 3X a day. This often reduces inflammation after about an hour. I believe this is just localized killing of bacteria, but is supporting your immune response and giving it a helping hand.

Also, if you have green or yellow colored phlegm, then you have a bacterial infection.

Another thing I do is I squirt very diluted saline up my nostrils. Drug stores sell saline in little squirt bottles exactly for this purposes. I would get a separate bottle for each member of your household as you stick the nozzle in each nostril and just squirt.
https://www.cvs.com/shop/cvs-health-sali...rodid-6205

If you have mucos congestion, use an expectorant. Mucinex is a name brand but its available generic. Anecdotal evidence from China on corona is that the virus causes excess mucus in the lungs, and this is how people are dying. I can't vouch for that but if it happens to me I'm taking an expectorant to reduce the symptoms.

Fever - apparently this accompanies viral infections. Generally, you need rest and fluids. Often you will feel cold or chills. In my experience, you have to "break a fever" by simply sweating it out. There have been many times I've gone to sleep with a fever wearing multiple sweatshirts, etc. and woken up in a sweat feeling better.

I just take a regular magnesium supplement and it knocks me out for the night. However, I am also sensitive to all medicines/vitamins. Half of the recommended dose is usually effective for me for whatever it is.

Cheers UlteriorMotive for the suggestion on NAC N-Acetyl-Cysteine (Troo Health Care).

I've bought some, as I suffer from asthma. Hopefully will notice a positive difference.

RE: Health treatments and prevention for Coronavirus / flu
Since this virus isn't 'airborne' in terms of being a toxic effluence latent in the wide open air, shouldn't those of us in more Southerly climes take the opportunity - if work closure affords it - to spend more time outdoors? I'm not talking about the mall or stupidly inserting yourself into a herd of people, but the idea of isolation or quarantine in this case isn't to literally stay within the confines of your own structure, right?

I would think - safely and with preparation i.e. hand sanitizer - engaging in a walk, a jog, a run, a bike ride, sunbathing, even a drive in a convertible would give the typical American much needed sun exposure.

Or am I thinking about this incorrectly?

I think you are right, Tricky Dick. But if you go to the grocery store or something its going to be airborne and get on your skin and clothes. Going for a hike or a drive with the top down ought to be good though.

My cold formulas containing paracetamol like 'Lemsip' and 'Sudafed' also have other active ingredients like phenylephrine hydrochloride and Guaifenesin. Does anyone know if these have risks?

the red sudafed can act like speed, don't take more than the recommended dosage. Where I live you have to sign for them and the larger quantity boxes are kept behind the counter because they can be processed into methamphetamine apparrently.

So yeah, assume they have some side effects.

Chest pain is a pretty serious side effect so I would stop taking whatever you are taking or talk to a doctor
