COVID 19 Protocols

COVID-19       Naturopathic Recommendations

Besides social distancing and applying hygiene techniques, we need to ensure that our immune systems are reinforced. While total health is most desirable, we can at least begin to boost our defence mechanisms – Our Immune System

Our first line of defense is our skin (our armour), including our inner skin, or rather our mucous membranes, the wet skin lining in our respiratory tract from our nose all the way into our lungs. Healthy mucous membranes trap pathogens entering the airways, where other immune cells can deal with the pathogens.

Mucous membrane tonics can be used long term to enhance these mucous membranes.

  • Astragalus – 30 – 60 drops twice daily in water (Immune builder don’t use when infected)
  • Ribwort 20 drops once or twice daily in water
  • Golden seal – as an MM tonic use – 5 drops once daily in water (also anti-bacterial)
  • Beta-carotene – 25,000 daily Food for mucus membranes (if you don’t eat your veges or have very dry membranes or have respiratory allergies)

Daily washing of the nostrils to remove dirt, toxins, and pathogens that are trapped and accumulate on these mucus membranes. Keep mucous membranes healthy and remove pathogens before they can penetrate the membranes or get deep into the lungs tissue and blood. Either a Netti Pot or the hand cupping technique.
C-19 causes dry coughing. Mullien can be helpful

Support other aspects of the immune system by using:

  • Vitamin C at 1000 mg twice daily.
  • Zinc at 50 mg once daily for ONLY 3 months to build your stores and then stop.
  • Homeopathic Arsenicum 30C – As a Prophylactic use – 5 drops on tongue once a day for 3 to 5 days, then once a week for 3 weeks. When infected with symptoms of C-19 – use up to every 2 to 4 hours as symptoms persist.
  • Probiotic Udo’s Adult Blend –
  • Udo’s’ Omega Oil Blend at one tablespoon with each meal To ensure cell membranes are healthy and resistant to Virus
  • Eat healthily and include carbs and fruits

 Upon first sign of respiratory and other associated symptoms

  • Echinacea (antiviral and immune stimulant) – 15 to 30 drops 3 times daily in water
  • Elderberry (antiviral & Diaphoretic)– 15 to 30 drops 3 times daily in water
  • Cat’s claw (antiviral and for pains) – 15 to 30 drops 3 times daily in water
  • Mullien (Expectorant for Dry Cough) 30 – 60 drops times daily in water
  • Sunshine and its Ultra violet rays disable respiratory viruses. Take sun for 10 minutes in the AM and PM bareback or ladies…with a bra top.
  • Chicken stock soup

All the above have anti- Viral activity against all viruses.

  • Occilococonnum at first signs of symptoms (headache, body aches, cough, fever, chills) take 1 capful on tongue up to every 4 hours. Occilo is the best selling Homeopathic in the world and works fabulously for the combined symptoms of cough, fever, headache and body pains, and make the patient feel very comfortable.
  • Homeopathic Corona #1 Arsenicum 30C for C-19 – As a Prophylactic use – 5 drops on tongue once a day for 3 to 5 days, then once a week for 3 weeks. When infected with symptoms of C-19 – use up to every 2 to 4 hours as symptoms persist.
  • Homeopathic mix #2 – for C-19’s additional symptoms – 5 drops on tongue

 Fever – Never reduce a fever. Fever is the result of your body’s metabolism being increased due to infection or injury. in dealing with infection, it is trying to identify the pathogen and making antibodies, which then attack the pathogens. It is important to keep the head cool with a cold hand towel.

 

I have used these techniques for 30 years on myself my family patients with total success.

 All Anti-Inflammatory Meds DEPRESS the IMMUNE System’s Response (Ibuprofen, Panadol Aspirin, and other drugs – ACE inhibitors, Cilesterol lowering drugs etc.)
