Perhaps you’ve noticed that the Trump administration is still telling the American people that all is well, and not to worry or really do anything in response to the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) crisis other than to just wait for spring when the president believes that the novel disease will somehow vanish on its own. But is this really the wisest approach to an ever-evolving situation with global economic and public health ramifications?
In this age of economic interdependence and just-in-time supply chains, our answer to that question is a resounding no. Dare we say that it would be patently foolish to just sit around and hope for the best, especially as big-box stores in certain areas of the country are already experiencing panic buying and associated supply shortages.
Dr. James Lyons-Weiler, PhD, recently published a report on his website highlighting some little-known facts about the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) of which you may not be aware. Included in this report is a roundup of some known nutritional and supplemental remedies that could help you and your family stay safe from this growing pandemic.
According to Dr. Theron Hutton, MD, N-acetyl cysteine, selenium, spirulina, and high-dose glucosamine are all supplements of natural origin that have been scientifically shown to provide protection against RNA viruses like influenza and coronavirus.
In a paper entitled, “Nutraceuticals have potential for boosting the type 1 interferon response to RNA viruses including influenza and coronavirus,” researchers from the Catalytic Longevity Foundation and the Mid America Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Hospital found that these and other herb extractions such as elderberry possess symptomatically beneficial properties that can help to mediate the impact of infections such as coronavirus, which is definitely worth considering.
Listen below as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, discusses other ways to defeat a coronavirus infection:
If you’re deficient in selenium and other micronutrients, your chances of developing a severe Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) infection are significantly higher
Believe it or not, selenium and other micronutrient deficiencies are directly linked to increased severity of coronavirus infections, which is why another paper entitled, “Micronutrient Selenium Deficiency Influences Evolution of Some Viral Infectious Diseases” makes the suggestion that people up their stores in order to boost their natural immune protection.
Another highly protective compound against coronaviruses is glycyrrhizin, one of the primary active components of licorice, which was found in yet another study to be toxic, and thus clinically effective, against SARS-associated coronavirus. Since the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) could be considered a cousin of SARS, it would only be logical to conclude that glycyrrhizin may be an effective natural remedy.
For those with an aversion to natural compounds, there are also antiviral drugs like disulfiram and chloroquine phosphate that other associated studies have determined to be effective against both MERS (Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome) and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome).
Lyons-Weiler also suggests staying away from other people whenever it’s feasible to do so. While avoiding people entirely is next to impossible, especially if you live in an urban or semi-urban environment that necessitates going out to buy groceries and other necessities on a regular basis, you can take basic steps such as not sharing food containers or utensils and avoiding medical facilities.
“Quarantine and even partially effective treatments are really the only tools we have to shut down the spread of this coronavirus,” he writes. “Some of the best disinfectants are likely Oxivir TB and Lysol Disinfecting, both of which are claimed to kill the virus on a surface after two minutes.”
