RE: Health treatments and prevention for Coronavirus
Cuba say they have found a cure, or at least an efficient medication, against the coronavirus. And allegedly, China has already been manufacturing and using this Cuban-designed drug, with widespread success.

See http://www.granma.cu/mundo/2020-02-07/in...0-10-02-56

"Interferón alfa 2B: El medicamento cubano usado en China contra el coronavirus. Nuestro apoyo al Gobierno y pueblo chinos en sus esfuerzos por combatir el coronavirus», con lo cual destacó el uso de los productos de la biotecnología de la Mayor de las Antillas para solucionar problemas de salud del mundo.

El medicamento es uno de los cerca de 30 fármacos escogidos por la Comisión Nacional de salud china para curar la afección respiratoria y, de acuerdo con declaraciones a la televisión cubana del doctor Luis Herrera Martínez, asesor científico y comercial del Presidente de BioCubaFarma, su selección obedece a la efectividad mostrada con anterioridad frente a virus con características semejantes a este.

(...) hace años se hizo una transferencia de tecnología a la provincia de Jilin, de lo cual surgió la planta chino-cubana ChangHeber, en la localidad de Changchun. En esta fábrica se realiza «el mismo producto que nosotros, exactamente con la misma tecnología, y que responde a los estándares de calidad que fueron aprobados por las autoridades regulatorias china y cubana».

«La planta chino-cubana Changheber en Jilin produce desde el primer día del Año Nuevo Lunar, el Interferon alpha (IFNrec) con el uso de tecnología cubana." '

RE: Health treatments and prevention for Coronavirus
I almost just bought a couple pounds of Vitamin C.

Then I remembered to be skeptical. Anecdotal evidence can be very convincing. This effect is magnified when it comes from a trusted source, like this forum. But powerful anecdotes are not a substitute for a double-blind controlled study. That is how we guard against being influenced by the placebo effect, or by normal chance.

Several such studies conclude that Vitamin C megadosing has little to no effect on the common cold, or other viruses and diseases:


https://quackwatch.org/related/dsh/colds/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_C_megadosage


So, I decided not to buy the 2.2 lbs of pure Vitamin C powder (for a mere $19.95), that I had my eye on. It felt like a small investment to possibly save my life. 49% of me still wants to try it, especially since the stakes are so much higher with this China Virus, than with the common cold. But for now, my logical mind is winning the battle.

For me it's self-isolation, hand-washing, and sleep... for now.

I think 200 grams is a bit extreme, but hey...do what you think is best.

I followed the Shanghai Plan recommendations.

For the record, my first 6 hours was a megadose. 1g every hour for six hours. I did get some bowel cramps from that one.

Then I've been on three doses a day ever since (between 1 and 2 grams per dose). In a case of severe symptoms that would perhaps escalate to 5g per dose for a maximum of 15g per day, based upon my bodyweight (220lbs), less for smaller people.

200 grams is ridiculous, based on stomach acid and bowel action. You'd stand a greater risk of dying quickly of dehydration from diarrhea than anything viral. You've most likely misread 20,000 mgs as 200g, not 20g.

The dosage is not so bad, but is highly individual. You don't die from this diarrhea at all.

I personally took way above 100 grams in 15 hours and a buddy took it as well, but it depends on every person.

Possible that you are one of the 10-20% who requires the buffered version. The acidity is not an issue once your body absolutely needs such large doses of even beyond 100 grams. You need that much in order to feel almost healthy, much better.

We've been through this earlier across multiple threads.

I'm not megadosing Vitamin C to stop getting the virus or to cure the cold-style effects, I'm taking it to fight the viral pneumonia Covid can produce and to stop the body going into / or dying from Sepsis - which is the complication that arises from the common secondary infection of bacterial pneumonia that often kills you quickly with this.

There's still a lot of unknowns about whether Covid creates Viral Pneumonia that directly affects the lungs, or if it's the Bacterial Form of Pneumonia that is the problem. There's no definite-agreement from Doctors yet for people die both ways, but studying the data suggests 80% of people will have a mild form, the chance of any form of pneumonia is about 10% in the population or so, and the chance of serious complications requiring intubation is about 10% of that, and the death rate is another small percentage of that. Yes, it's dangerous for those in that small percentage. Are we all going to die? Seems unlikely.

Contracting viral form is down to a crap shoot, depending on various factors. I'll come back to it in a second, but firstly, the bacterial form can be discouraged. I've done this in my self-treatment in a variety of ways, including avoiding NSAIDs and SAIDS, which the use of is being suspected to be a potential issue based on known pneumonia and sepsis reactions by the FDA, but the results of studies by the EU Drug Risk Management Team which won't be known until May.

So what about the Viral Pneumonia?

Vitamin C Megadoses have been shown to be effective as an respiratory anti-viral in this particular battle against Covid, and especially for those already in sepsis, by some of the Wuhan Docs - I think the success rate was an 85% recovery rate - when antibiotics - which treat bacterial infection - obviously-weren't working, and is now recommended as a treatment by the Shanghai government, though in an obviously-superior IV form, but they want to run trials in an oral form for a three month study that should commence sometime in March.

This is not about its studied effects on the common cold. This is about this unique form of viral pneumonia.

So, I'm now following the Shanghai Plan recommendations for the dosage at my bodyweight and severity of symptoms, because, what's the harm?

There's also an interesting coincidence I found elsewhere that the populations that are hardest hit to this all have lower instances of a gene that allows Vitamin C to be processed: Israel, Asia, Iran and Northern Italians, who are known to have this genetic problem whilst the Southern Italians is more on average with the rest of Europe. One specific area of Africa has this same genetic abnormality as the Northern Italians, the rest of Africa has the highest instance of this gene - something like 71% against something like 38% of Europeans. I think Hispanics were 52%. I can't remember offhand. Look up my post. Obviously, they still need to take in Vitamin C to process it to begin with.

I'm immunocomprised, so am very at-risk. Based on the data, I should have progressed into hospitalisation by this date. I was going rapidly downhill until Day 7, when I started megadosing against viral pneumonia and the various forms of bacterial pneumonia discouragement. Now, by Day 13, my temperature gets slightly elevated during the exercise but it helps me produce phlegm, moving it from the Lower Respiratory Tract where pneumonia infection will be encouraged, to the Upper Respiratory Tract where this potential source of infection can be expelled from the body. My blood oxygen has been reliably 98-99% for the last two days of measurement, so I'm not progressing into Pneumonia, and am past the average onset date for both ARDS and Sepsis, so can't see myself require hospitalisation, and the previously-constant cough and fever are now becoming periodical.

Discouraging Bacterial Pneumonia

- I'm keeping the house warm and running a humidifier, particularly during sleep, as research shows cool dry air predicts waves of deaths from Pneumonia;

- Regular steam inhalation with boiling water alone - I was told not to use oils or eucalyptus years back by an ENT, and his logic made perfect sense, but for the life of me I can't remember the WHY;

- Post-operative lung exercises for avoiding pneumonia and encouraging the movement of phlegm to the upper respiratory tract;

- Propping myself up with pillows to sleep rather than being flat; or sitting up rather than lying prone when resting;

- The regular use of a cough expectorant so the phlegm doesn't sit in lower respiratory tract, (Sennega & Ammonia Liquid);

- There's some discussion of dairy and chocolate being bad for encouraging mucus, whilst just as many others say it doesn't. This article suggest chocolate functions as a cough suppressant. I don't eat it anyway, but there's no harm in avoiding it if you're showing symptoms:

https://www.health.com/condition/cold-fl...late-cough

Perhaps I'm wrong and none of this will work, but it's the best plan of action I can figure out and is better than twiddling my thumbs, because it's not like we're getting any instructions of what do to besides self-isolation and handwashing from the government or media: just conflicting reports, fear porn, carelessness and disinformation. The CDC doesn't mention how to treat bacterial pneumonia at all - they're more worried about whining about racism.

If i'm wrong, at least I went down fighting.

1) I love Quack Watch. If there is a particular doctor or supplement regimen that is cited as bunk by Quack Watch it verifies that it is probably legit. Reading Quack Watch is like reading Pravda -- the truth is exactly the opposite of whatever they say.

2) Why don't you simply go through this thread and read all the scientific studies that everyone has cited, including myself? These studies go back to the 1940's. Very few people have supplied anecdotal evidence in this thread. It is mostly scientific studies and personal practical experience.

RE: Health treatments and prevention for Coronavirus
AnonymousBosch, thanks for your reply. I appreciate your well-researched and detailed thoughts. I wish you all the best. Please keep us posted. At the very least, the placebo effect is very powerful, so you should benefit regardless of the efficacy of Vitamin C megadosing. Importantly, the toxicity risk appears low. Your biggest risk is probably some loose stool. I hope you were able to acquire sufficient toilet paper, whilst the getting was good.

Tail Gunner, thank you for your reply also. I appreciate it. I read the threads, and many of the studies, but in case I missed what you are referring to, please point me to the one single strongest study relating to Vitamin C, if you have a chance. I know there are many many studies you are referring to, but if you could choose only one as the strongest evidence, which one would it be?

As for my potentially helpful ideas, I have been taking ice cold showers for many months now. And I have eliminated sugar from my diet.

And of course, self-isolation, hand-washing, and good sleep. I am still undecided about Vitamin C megadosing, though. Maybe I will buy some to have on hand, for whence thy coughing begins. It is inexpensive and apparently low risk. But I try to remind myself to seek to disprove what I think I know, since confirmation bias is so strong.

RE: Health treatments and prevention for Coronavirus
I noticed every store has ISO-alcohol sold out. But most of the stores are still carrying hydrogen peroxide. (I guess people dont realize that this also kills the coronavirus?) But a good health tip to protect against flus/colds/coronavirus is you can pour it on a cap and dump it into your ear. There are many reports of people doing this and never getting a cold or help reduce the time that they have a cold or flu if they do this early on) So I would imagine this can help also with the coronavirus. Couldnt hurt. You can google for personal experiences with this from others. There are hundreds...


"According to Dr. Mercola-

“In 1928, Dr. Richard Simmons hypothesized that the cold virus entered your body through the ear canal and not the nose. His theory was dismissed by the medical community.

However, in 1938, German researchers had great success using hydrogen peroxide in the ear canal to treat colds and the flu.10 Although the data was vastly ignored by the medical community, I’ve treated many patients who experienced great results with this treatment.

You must start treatment in the first 24 hours to have a significant impact on reducing the length of the cold.“


Rather bs or not, worth adding to your routine because it takes less than a minute to do and hundreds swear by it. So its good enough for me.

What is it?

It's an antiviral medication that is a synthetic version of specific proteins (interferons) responsible for regulating the immune responses effective against viruses, blocking viral protein production and replication in affected cells and stimulating macrophages and natural killer cells to clean house.

Alfa-2B has made the rounds as part of treatments for hepatitis B/C and certain types of tumors, so it wouldn't be surprising that it could have a decent effect on coronavirus.

Does anyone here know an online pharmacy that will ship a good type of chloroquine, preferably not Indian, to the UK? It does not seem to be available in any form in the UK, but I am still searching. I've found two US stores, but they don't ship to the UK.

Your biggest risk is probably some loose stool. I hope you were able to acquire sufficient toilet paper, whilst the getting was good.

The first day had some bowel pain. Slightly soft but solid stools seven days later. I haven't had anything approaching liquid stools.

Today was the first day I noted Vitamin C obvious in my urine - it had been clear up until this. Today, it looked and smelled like what people call 'Berocca Pee'. I suspect not going to be needing to megadose for much longer, since my body is now finally flushing out the excess, whereas during the more serious stages of infection, there wasn't any trace of it, suggesting it was being used to fight the infection.

I mainly eat healthy fresh food made from scratch, so my bowel is very efficient - I only use three squares of toilet paper per wipe and that gets the job completely-done.

I was clearly-warned what was coming - I see patterns and signs in a way most people don't - so I've been prepping since the end of January. I have 80 rolls of toilet paper in the shed, brought gradually each week, long before any panic hit. That would probably last me a year or more in normal times. I only bought so many in the first place because I expect to have to distribute it to friends and family who didn't prep, as I'm quite prepared to use water to get the job done. I threw in my degreed job a few years back - best thing I ever did - and work in garbage collection on a regular basis, so am hardly-precious. Dirty nappies? Mouldy food? Maggots? Dead things? Week old coffee ground? Meh.

I'd guesstimate there's 4 months worth of food here for three people. Possibly more. I'm good.

I'm applying this methodical, detached process to treatment, rather than not acting until it's too late.

Get your hands on plaquenil 200mg. It's cheap and probably the best bet increasing your odds of survival. The hard part might be convincing your prescriber to write you a script.

If you want to increase your odds avouding getting sick this is your best bet: get 7-8 hours of sleep every night, eat a balanced diet, get regular exercise , wash your hands after going to the bathroom or touching communal surfaces line doorknobs

I like this doctors channel, he gives good information and does t seem to want to spread panic

That is good to hear.

Also, it sounds like you are well-prepared, and you have been very proactive. The fact that you don't eat processed foods, and that you make your meals from scratch, will likely be healthful also. I do the same.

High success rate with zero mortaliy in a 50 case study in China with medium to severe COVID pneumonia: (Pneumonia in conventional treatment has an average mortality rate of 15-30%!)

http://orthomolecular.activehosted.com/i...d235b4b8ca

What is interesting is that they used 10.000mg to 20.000mg which is tantamount to up to 200.000mg oral. (And yes - if you are sick enough, then taking 150.000mg is no issue in oral form as the body uses almost all of it.)

In one severe case they used 50.000mg within 4 hours saving that man's life. That is impossible to do orally (500.000mg). The highest IVC amounts I read about were 100.000mg per day for severe near-death pneumonia. That is 1 mio. mg vitamin C orally which obviously cannot be done since the maximum oral dose applied is 200.000mg.

Anyway - things work well for those who are lucky to get this treatment.

Successful High-Dose Vitamin C Treatment of Patients with Serious and Critical COVID-19 Infection
by Richard Cheng, MD, PhD
(OMNS Mar 18, 2020) A group of medical doctors, healthcare providers and scientists met online March 17, 2020, to discuss the use of high dose intravenous vitamin C (IVC) in the treatment of moderate to severe cases of Covid-19 patients. The key guest was Dr. Enqian Mao, chief of emergency medicine department at Ruijin Hospital, a major hospital in Shanghai, affiliated with the Joatong University College of Medicine. Dr. Mao is also a member of the Senior Expert Team at the Shanghai Public Health Center, where all Covid-19 patients have been treated. In addition, Dr. Mao co-authored the Shanghhai Guidelines for the Treatment of Covid-19 Infection, an official document endorsed by the Shanghai Medical Association and the Shanghai city government. [1]

Dr. Mao has been using high-dose dose IVC to treat patients with acute pancreatitis, sepsis, surgical wound healing and other medical conditions for over 10 years. When Covid-19 broke out, he and other experts thought of vitamin C and recommended IVC for the treatment of moderate to severe cases of Covid-19 patients. The recommendation was accepted early in the epidemic by the Shanghai Expert Team. All serious or critically ill Covid-19 patients in the Shanghai area were treated in Shanghai Public Health Center, for a total of 358 Covid-19 patients as of March 17th, 2020.

Dr. Mao stated that his group treated ~50 cases of moderate to severe cases of Covid-19 infection with high dose IVC. The IVC dosing was in the range of 10,000 mg - 20,000 mg a day for 7-10 days, with 10,000 mg for moderate cases and 20,000 for more severe cases, determined by pulmonary status (mostly the oxygenation index) and coagulation status. All patients who received IVC improved and there was no mortality. Compared to the average of a 30-day hospital stay for all Covid-19 patients, those patients who received high dose IVC had a hospital stay about 3-5 days shorter than the overall patients. Dr. Mao discussed one severe case in particular who was deteriorating rapidly. He gave a bolus of 50,000 mg IVC over a period of 4 hours. The patient's pulmonary (oxygenation index) status stabilized and improved as the critical care team watched in real time. There were no side effects reported from any of the cases treated with high dose IVC.

Among the international experts who attended today's video conference were: Dr. Atsuo Yanagisawa, formerly professor of medicine at the Kyorin University, Tokyo, Japan, and the president of the International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine; Dr. Jun Matsuyama of Japan; Dr. Michael J Gonzalez, professor at University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences, Dr. Jean Drisko, professor of medicine, and Dr. Qi Chen, professor of pharmacology, both at the Kansas University Medical School, Dr. Alpha "Berry" Fowler, professor of pulmonary and critical care medicine, Virginia Commonwealth University, Dr. Maurice Beer and Asa Kitfield, both from NutriDrip and Integrative Medical NY, New York City; Dr. Hong Zhang of Beijing; William T. Penberthy, PhD of CME Scribe, Florida; Ilyes Baghli, MD, president of the Algerian Society of Nutrition and Orthomolecular Medicine (SANMO); Drs. Mignonne Mary and Charles Mary Jr, of the Remedy Room, New Orleans; Dr. Selvam Rengasamy, president of SAHAMM, Malaysia. I, Richard Cheng, MD, PhD of Cheng Integrative Health Center of South Carolina, and Senior Advisor to ShenZhen Medical Association and Shenzhen BaoAn Central Hospital, coordinated this conference.

Albeit a brief meeting of less than 45 minutes due to Dr. Mao's limited time availability, the audience thanked Dr. Mao for his time and sharing and wished to keep the communication channel open and also able to talk to other clinicians working at the front line against Covid-19.

In a separate meeting, I had the honor to talk to Sheng Wang, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Critical Care Medicine of Shanghai 10th Hospital, Tongji University College of Medicine at Shanghai China, who also served at the Senior Clinical Expert Team of the Shanghai Covid-19 Control and Prevention Team. There are three lessons that we learned about this Covid-19 infection, Dr. Wang said:

1. Early and high-dose IVC is quite helpful in helping Covid-19 patients. The data is still being finalized and the formal papers will be submitted for publication as soon as they are complete.

2. Covid-19 patients appear to have a high rate of hyper-coagulability. Among the severe cases, ~40% severe cases showed hyper-coagulability, whereas the number among the mild to moderate cases were 15-20%. Heparin was used among those with coagulation issues.

3. The third important lesson learned is the importance for the healthcare team of gearing up to wear protective clothing at the earliest opportunity for intubation and other emergency rescue measures. We found that if we waited until a patient developed the full-blown signs for intubation, then got ready to intubate, we would lose the precious minutes. So the treatment team should lower the threshold for intubation, to allow proper time (~15 minutes or so) for the team to gear up. This critical 15-30 minutes could make a difference in the outcome.

Also, both Drs. Mao and Wang confirmed that there are other medical teams in other parts of the country who have been using high dose IVC treating Covid-19 patients.

^There is a lot of anecdotal evidence that high levels of Vitamin C and Zinc help ward off/treat the common cold (which is a form of coronavirus), so the Vitamin C approach is definitely worth looking into.

I just ordered a 5kg bag from them, should be arriving tomorrow. I'm going to start boosting my Vitamin C intake along with keeping my 10,000 IU of D3, plus 50mg of Zinc. All three have been proven to boost immune systems in multiple studies individually, and when combined, they are even more powerful.
