Dr. Turner’s Podcast
Not too long ago I met a friend for lunch who had 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 strategies to help prevent COVID as well as to provide early treatment should you become infected. Unfortunately, he had passed both those stages. If you’re seeking information on what you can do right now to either prevent or treat COVID, I encourage you to schedule an appointment with me to learn more.
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):
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!
|Vitamin||Prevention||Treatment (once infected)|
|Vitamin C||500 mg twice a day||1000 mg twice a day|
|Vitamin D||3,000 iu once a day||4,000 iu once a day|
|Zinc||30 mg once a day||100 mg once a day|
|*Quercetin||250 mg once a day||250 mg twice a day|
|*Melatonin||6 mg at bedtime||10 mg at bedtime|
|*NAC||600 mg||600 mg twice a day|
*Quercetin: The best source (price, quality, etc.) that I have found is here: 1 pill twice a day of this formulation
*Melatonin: I prefer the extended-release formulation because it helps you stay asleep as well as fall asleep. 1 pill at bedtime of this formulation
*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 am often asked about Ivermectin. After doing my research, and seeing its beneficial effects on numerous patients and family members, I have reached the conclusion that it is a reasonable option for most people.
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.
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.
My commitment to each patient is to bring a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to preserving health and preventing hospitalization. Because new scientific information is always forthcoming, the specifics of my approach may change but the emphasis remains the same. Other medications—including breathing treatments, steroids, and monoclonal antibodies—are helpful and have a role depending on the patient's specific condition. In general, I draw my strategies from the following sources:
Each person 18 years or older will need his/her own visit. We do not provide medication for anyone less than 18.
No, the prescription is not included in the $149.00 price. All prescription costs are paid directly to the pharmacy.
No, Hydroxychloroquine is not included with the Ivermectin prescription. Each medication is prescribed individually as needed. Any additional medication requires a Telemedicine appointment so that Dr. Turner can diagnose your symptoms and prescribe the appropriate medication.
The $149.00 Covid Expedited Care package does not include a visit with Dr. Turner. Please select “Active Covid Infection” to book a Telemedicine appointment with Dr. Turner.
Covid Telemedicine visits are a separate appointment with Dr. Turner.
Due to extremely high demand, it may take up to 7 days to process your prescription.
Due to the difficulties pharmacies may have acquiring Ivermectin, costs fluctuate constantly and may spike due to supply and demand. We cannot control the price of the medication.
Any additional medications will be prescribed on a case-by-case basis during a Telemedicine visit with Dr. Turner depending on diagnosis.
No, refills are spaced out according to Federal and State medical laws.
No, Dr. Turner cannot treat patients once they have been admitted to the hospital.
We cannot guarantee the appointment for the same week. We are usually booked out a month in advance, however, we do have regular cancellations and can move your appointment to an earlier date if you have already secured a spot on the calendar. You must first purchase and schedule a Telemedicine visit. If you are experiencing Covid symptoms and need to move your appointment up to an earlier date, please email email@example.com with the subject line URGENT. We will then do our best to move your appointment up as soon as possible.
