Ask a Doctor: “Someone in my family has been sick for a few days and just tested positive for COVID-19. What can I do to help myself from getting sick as well?”
Your risk of becoming sick depends on many factors including your age, co-existing medical conditions, vitamin D level, and overall nutritional status. Older people as well as those with pre-existing diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular or respiratory diseases, autoimmunity, and immunosuppression are at greater risk of severe disease and death from SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Regardless, you can improve your chances of not becoming ill or mitigating illness if you follow the Frontline Covid Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), Dr. Peter McCullough’s, or Dr. Vladimir Zelenko’s preventative protocols.
The virus replicates for the first few days in your nose, mouth, and throat, so it is important to gargle with an antiseptic mouthwash and do nasal rinses using diluted hydrogen peroxide or betadine. Ask your doctor, or go to myfreedoctor.com, for a prescription for ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine. Black cumin seed 40mg/kg daily can be used in addition to or in place of ivermectin.
Fortify your immune system with vitamin D3/K2 5000 IU daily, zinc 50 mg daily, quercetin 500 mg twice daily, vitamin C 2-3 gm daily, and melatonin 6 mg at bedtime.
A recent review of the scientific literature shows that vitamin D levels greater than 50 ng/ml are associated with milder disease and that hospitalized patients treated with vitamin D have a reduction in disease severity and intensive care unit admissions.
I also encourage my patients to eat an organic diet low in sugars and refined carbohydrates, and lower their stress levels.
