COVID and the Delta Variant

 

The delta variant is here folks, and it’s no joke. I just met a friend for lunch who recently spent 5 days in the ICU – and when he walked into the restaurant, he looked like a stiff breeze could have knocked him over. During lunch, his hand was shaking, and he asked if I knew when this newly acquired tremor would go away.

 

I had no answers for him.

 

I wish he had reached out to me earlier. You see, there are options available to both help prevent getting COVID as well as options for treatment should you become infected with the virus. Unfortunately, he was passed both those stages. If you’re seeking information on what you can do right now to either prevent or treat COVID and the Delta variant, I encourage you to schedule an appointment with me to learn more.

Strengthen Your Immune System

 

The first thing I want you to understand is that your best defense against COVID is a healthy, robust immune system. (Which is, for example, the goal of the vaccine.) There are many ways to do this; here is my personal list of the absolute most impactful suggestions (click each link for further reading):

 

Sleep

Minimizing/avoiding sugar

Mushrooms or mushroom extracts

Aged Garlic

Selenium

NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine)

Airborne

DAO labs immunity blend

 

Specific Supplements with Proven Activity Against COVID

 

Just this week I talked to a patient who is also a nurse at our (now full) ICU. She said the hospital approach to COVID consists chiefly of just three interventions:

A. Give patients Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc (“because almost all the patients are deficient in them”).

B. Put them on oxygen and intubate if they deteriorate.

C. Make sure their blood doesn’t get too thick (strokes and heart attack risk).

 

So, how about getting proactive and giving yourself 1/3 of the hospital treatment before you ever get there!

 

VitaminPrevention Treatment (once infected)
Vitamin C500 mg twice a day1000 mg twice a day
Vitamin D3,000 iu once a day4,000 iu once a day
Zinc30 mg once a day100 mg once a day
*Quercetin250 mg once a day250 mg twice a day
*Melatonin6 mg at bedtime10 mg at bedtime
*NAC600 mg600 mg twice a day

 

*NAC is currently hard to obtain. The best source (price, quality, etc.) that I have found is here: 1 pill twice a day of this formulation

*I prefer the extended-release formulation because it helps you stay asleep as well as fall asleep. 1 pill at bedtime of this formulation

*The best source (price, quality, etc.) that I have found is here: 1 pill twice a day of this formulation

 

My references for these supplements are this YouTube video and this website (which also discusses Ivermectin; more on that later).

 

Ivermectin for COVID

 

Or how about hydroxychloroquine? Azithromycin? Budesonide?

 

I am often asked about these different medication options: In my research, Ivermectin is the one that most robustly and consistently shows activity against the virus that causes COVID. After seeing its beneficial effects on numerous patients and family members, I have become a fan.

 

You can read more here.

 

There are two different regimens – one for prevention and one for treatment. If you are interested, we can arrange a consultation (virtually, if needed) to discuss your specifics and get you started.

 

Why do many prominent websites downplay or negate the role of Ivermectin?

 

I can offer you two reasons: fear and the concept of “levels of evidence.”

 

Understand that we live in a litigious society and that no one likes a class-action lawsuit. So unless you want lawyers or the FDA breathing down your neck, your organization is going to be extremely cautious about going public to say that X or Y treats Covid.

 

So, though Ivermectin has some promising evidence, it may not yet be convincing enough to garner the unqualified support of, say, The Mayo Clinic or the CDC.

 

It’s all about how high you draw the bar.

 

We all agree that an A+ student is a “good” student…What about a B+ student?..

 

If Ivermectin is a B+ treatment for COVID, then what does that mean? Would you consider it “effective” or not? Would you recommend it or not?

 

What if Ivermectin helps 2 out of every 3 people? Is that “effective”?

 

The problem is that real-life involves shades of grey and treatments rarely fit into tidy boxes. The devil is in the details, so to speak.

 

In conclusion, I wish you great wisdom, health, and safety during these trying times. I am here to help guide you with the very best of my education, experience, and goodwill.
