Anti-Coronavirus Protocol - Part 2: Supplements

Updated: Apr 2, 2020

Being prepared for potential exposure to a virus - coronavirus or other - and taking precautions against its spread is not paranoia and it's not fearful. It's wisdom. It's appropriate. It's considerate. After all, if you catch a virus, it's likely that you will spread it to others - loved ones, co-workers and even strangers - some of whom may not be able to combat it as easily as you. So, as you read this blog, I encourage you to prepare for this (and any other virus) out of a sense of personal welfare, social responsibility, and general good hygiene rather than out of any sense of fear.

Is the media blowing Coronavirus out of proportion? Watch for my upcoming blog Coronavirus: The Little Known Truth.

But if you're reading this, you want to know how to protect you and your loved ones from the coronavirus. So, let's examine the research.

The first thing to know is that you need to have your arsenal as soon as possible. Buying once you feel symptoms of what you are trying to avoid is well, a little late for this time. But at the very least it'll help for next time or for someone else in the home. And if received in time, it will typically shorten the duration and severity of the illness even when therapy is begun a little late. Better late than never.


Vitamins, Minerals, Supplements

1. Vitamin C - Obvious, but vital. During cold and flu season, there's nothing wrong with taking 2,000 mg a day. For a known exposure or that "run down," tired feeling or for any symptoms (cough, fever, shortness of breath), that can be increased to 8,000 - 10,000 mg a day for two or three days and longer if you've actually come down with the flu. (1) They should be spread out to 1,000 mg an hour up to about 10 times in a 24 hour period. After that, loose stools can ensue, so beware. The chart below lists natural foods that are rich in Vitamin C according to the National Institute of Health. (2)


2. Multivitamins: The health benefits of multivitamins include their ability to prevent and treat various diseases including cardiovascular problems, high cholesterol, as well as eye disorders and some skin conditions. (3) Multivitamins are also a good alternative if you are unable to purchase or grow your fresh vegetables. Even if you are an avid organic produce consumer, due to many years of unsustainable farming techniques and lack of allowing the land to rest and lie fallow, much of the soil is depleted of nutrients. Eat as many nutrients as you can through vitamin and mineral-rich food. But almost everyone needs a supplement, despite a great diet. What is your favorite? Mine is linked below.

3. Zinc - Zinc is packed full of helpful benefits including boosting your immune and digestive systems, reduces stress, increases metabolism, and it promotes healing of acne and wounds. Also, it is helpful in terms of pregnancy, healthy hair, skin conditions like eczema, common cold, eye care, and appetite loss. (5) It's not uncommon for people to have a zinc deficiency. 20-30 mg a day is a reasonable dose with suspected exposure to a pathogen. But don't take more than 40 mg a day of zinc since it can deplete the body's copper stores. (6) Recommendation:

4. Colloidal Silver - Colloidal silver has been used for centuries to promote good health and scientific studies continue to show effective results compared to other mainstream products against harmful organisms. (4) Colloidal silver is well known as a natural antibiotic and may be useful for periodontitis, thrush, burns, boils, abscesses, and other conditions. (5) Different colloidal silver manufacturers sell different strengths. Check out the label for how much you should use daily or here is a handy guide with different amounts according to the ppm (parts per million) / strength of your silver. [Click for Table Source].

While one can easily find colloidal silver products on the market it is very easy to make yourself in the comfort of your own home. It can be much more cost-effective than purchasing commercial colloidal silver. If you would rather skip making the product you can always purchase is already made.
