Useful herbs
 These are from a Chinese formula. There are useful herbs more common in the west also. This formula was clinically tested with SARS, a corona virus similar to Sars-CoV-2

World Health Organization  Information Portal
SARS: Clinical Trials on Treatment Using a Combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine

"Our initial research results showed that the integrated treatment (TCM in combination with Western medicine) may have advantages over treatment with Western medicine alone, and the advantages are reflected in the following findings: the integrated treatment can help alleviate lung inflammation caused by SARS, improve the level of blood oxygen saturation, alleviate symptoms of hypodynamia, tachypnoea and shortness of breath, and reduce the required dose of Western medicines such as glucocorticoid. Our initial safety evaluation also suggested that the integrated treatment is safe."

"The entire formula therefore consisted of 12 herbs: Folium Mori, Flos Chrysanthemi, Semen Armeniacae Amarum, Fructus Forsythiae, Herba Menthae, Radix Platycodonis, Radix Glycyrrhizae, Rhizoma Phragmitis, Radix Astragali, Radix Saposhnikoviae, Folium Isatidis and Radix Scutellariae. These herbs have been used traditionally for more than a thousand years and are considered safe for consumption because no noteworthy adverse effects have been recorded "

Vitamin C  and Melatonin

very interesting articles from Doris Loh

COVID-19, ARDS & Cell-Free Hemoglobin – The ASCORBIC ACID Connection

streamlined version

*  Cell-Free Hemoglobin – The Cause of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in COVID-19
*  Without adequate ascorbate, the human body will be at a significant disadvantage in the fight against COVID-19
*   L-Ascorbate Attenuates Endothelial Permeability from Cell-Free Hemoglobin

The following supplementation guide for oral ascorbic acid is offered as informational purposes only, and should NOT be considered as MEDICAL ADVICE.

Initial onset of symptoms:

3 to 5 g in one dose, followed by 1 g every 30 to 60 mins for the following 3 hours. Repeat this cycle until symptoms subside.

Milder cases: 

2 to 5 g in one dose, followed by 1 g every hour for the following 4 – 6 hours. Repeat this cycle until symptoms subside.

Severe/critical cases:

10 g in one dose, followed by 2 g every 15  to 30 mins for the following 2 hours. Repeat this cycle until symptoms improve. 

Supplementation of quercetin may need to be reconsidered when using oral ascorbic acid during COVID-19 treatment.



The fact that the pro-inflammatory cytokine storm effects are induced by the activation of NLRP3 inflammasomes, the ability of melatonin to INHIBIT NLRP3 inflammasome elevates this powerful molecule to a truly unique position in the fight against COVID-19.  This also means that if a patient, regardless of age, has adequate melatonin, the infectiousness of COVID-19 will be greatly reduced, and the chances of developing ARDS/ALI significantly diminished.

25-50 mg zinc per day 

COVID-19 pandemic: can maintaining optimal zinc balance enhance host resistance?


Zinc might be one of the micronutrients that could be consumed to reduce the intensity of COVID-19 infection and perhaps lessen the respiratory tract infection for its antiviral properties

Consuming around 25-50 mg zinc per day is affordable, and less likely to induce human toxicity, as >200 to 400 mg per day of zinc consumption has shown to induce adverse effects

Of clinical importance, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus replication has shown to be inhibited by zinc [8]. Zinc compound has also shown to reduce the in vitro replication potential of the influenza virus. Zinc oxide nanoparticles demonstrated promising antiviral effects against H1N1 influenza virus infection. In a similar line of study, zinc salt inhibited the replication of the respiratory syncytial virus; the investigators have shown an 800-fold reduction in respiratory syncytial virus with 10μM concentration of zinc salt exposure. Antiviral effects of zinc are also shown in the hepatitis C virus (HCV), where zinc salts reduced the HCV replication. More importantly, zinc supplementation in HCV-infected patients reduced hepatitis, and enhanced the response to antiviral treatment

 clinical zinc inadequacy is more common in elderly individuals, and the global prevalence of zinc deficiency is estimated to be around 20%

black rice, black sesame, soy foods, mushroom, celery, legumes, lentils, nuts, sunflower seeds, and almonds are  good sources of zinc.  Soaking beans or sprouting increases zinc availability.

health supplement suggestions from Russell Blaylock, M.D.

1 Beta-glucan: Take 500mg once a day for three days in a row and then after that twice a week — once on Monday and again on Friday. Take on an empty stomach and eat nothing for 45 minutes afterwards. Do this until this “crisis” passes. If you are ill with the virus, continue this until you feel well for a week, then take the beta-glucan once a week, every week. Immune stimulation can also improve immunity in the highest-risk patients, such as elderly with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, hypertension, and cancer.

2 Astragalus: Take one 500mg capsule twice a day with a meal. For known infections, take two capsules twice to three times a day. This is a powerful immune stimulator for anti-viral immunity and it powerfully inhibits the cytokine storm.

3 Nano-curcumin: Take two 500mg capsules three times a day if exposed to an infected person and one capsule three times a day with meals otherwise. This is a very powerful protectant against cytokine storm, the phenomenon that kills people from the virus and flu viruses. Careful research shows that it dramatically blocks the pathological damage by cytokine storm reactions and also powerfully prevents post-infection pulmonary fibrosis.

4 Nano-vitamin C: If one is exposed to an infected person, take two capsules three times a day. If sick, take five capsules four times a day. Just for protection, otherwise, one capsule three times a day. If you are getting sick, take four capsules four times a day. The illness usually last only one or at most two days and then you recover.

5 Vitamin D3: Take 5000 IU a day every day with food. This plays a big role in reducing COVID-19 infections. Most elderly (more than 80%) are severely deficient in vitamin D3. Keeping them indoors makes this even worse.

There are other steps you may also consider:

1 EGCG: There is a new nano-EGCG which can be taken as one capsule twice a day with a meal if you are exposed to an infected person or if you become sick. EGCG and resveratrol (pterostilbene) both have antiviral properties in that they block entry of certain viruses into cells.

2 Do not lower your temperature unless it rises above 104 degrees F. If you have seizures, keep temp no more than 102F. Do not take Tylenol or NSAIDs. Keep very warm at all times.

3 Do not exercise until you are completely well for at least five to seven days.

4 Avoid all alcohol (and be wary of immune-suppressing drugs; statins are powerful immune-suppressing drugs).

5 Do not smoke or use nicotine products — nicotine is a powerful immune suppressant.

6 Sugar and high-glycemic carbohydrates are immune suppressing.

7 Avoid omega-6 oils (peanut, corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, and canola oils).

8 Increase your intake of DHA omega-3 to 2000mg a day. Avoid EPA as it suppresses immunity.

9 Avoid glutamate — soy protein and protein isolates, hydrolyzed vegetable proteins, protein isolates or concentrates, MSG, natural flavors, sodium or potassium caseinate, autolyzed yeast, stock and broth. All these contain high levels of glutamate and can increase tissue damage.

10Take prebiotics and probiotics every other day.

Treatment for COVID-19 using Methylene Blue
Dr Deepak Golwalkar

Using Methylene Blue in nebulized form for treating patients with Covid-19

As COVID-19 (Coronavirus) ravages the world, a quick, cost effective cure for this malaise needs to be found.
Being a pulmonologist (lung specialist) in India, I have been treating pneumonia, other respiratory ailments and Tuberculosis patients (with XDR & MDR TB) for more than 42 years.

I’ve achieved remarkable success in treating my patients with Methylene Blue and with documented evidence. When used in sub lingual and nebulised form M.B. helps remarkably in clearing alveolar capillary block.

Covid causes a silent hypoxia wherein patients despite having acute hypoxia (low oxygen saturation spO2) show no clinical symptoms. Patient is not dyspnoeic in spite of having very low oxygen saturation. These soon escalate to a cytokine storm and patient goes in the irreversible phase of the respiratory distress.

Covid patients show resemblance to methemoglobinemia. MB is considered an approved drug of choice for methemoglobinemia. Additionally, M.B. has a strong antifibrotic action and is very fast acting.

Given the above presentations, Methylene Blue can be used as a treatment to all Coronavirus symptomatic patients & as a prophylactic drug to all vulnerable population. Used in low dosage (as prescribed below) it shows no significant side effects (less than 2% of my patients complained of irritation in the nose/nausea for a day which subsided on its own). Given its low cost, it is also a viable regime for poorer countries like India. A number of patients(varying levels of respiratory distress) have been treated with using MB in nebulised/sub-lingual for over the course of my 10 years of practice.

Potential Treatment regime for the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19);

Primary course of administration is in Nebulized form and Sublingually together. For patients with severe Cyanosis (oxygen levels less than 85%), IV may be required based on the clinical condition of the patient.

Preparing MB solution (if not available as 0.1%)
0·1% solution of Methylene Blue can be prepared by dissolving 1 gm of MB powder in 1000 ml distilled water OR
Use 1 ml of 1% MB injection and add 10 ml of distilled water

Administration steps as below
Methylene Blue to be administered as inhalation through a nebulizer
Nebulization to be given through a nasal mask
Sublingual administration to be done in parallel
Depending on the level of respiratory distress, add Budesonide + Salbutamol + Ipratropium (Budencort & Duolin are commonly available drugs with the same composition in India) to reduce bronchial oedema and dilatation of bronchi

Post my recommendations, a hospital in Mumbai started administering Methylene Blue through Nebulizer as well as sublingually on COVID-19 confirmed patients with positive results.
Methylene blue is available in most of the drug stores and it is safe to consume without side effects in low dosage (less 2 mg/kg in IV form). It was the first antiseptic dye to be used therapeutically. In fact, its use was widespread even before the advent of sulphonamides and penicillin. Its benefit is it rapidly arrests fibrosis which proves beneficial against virulent strains.

There are multiple reasons why MB is effective; the chief is Nitric Oxide mediated reduction in inflammatory cascades in addition to inhibiting canonical inflammasomes.
Radiologically (i.e. X Ray) Covid/Swine Flu are similar & resemble any acute viral/fungal loefflers or aspiration pneumonia. Clinical distinction can be made by giving intranasal oxygen — you’d notice an improvement in normal pneumonia but not for Swine Flu or Covid as these viruses would lead to alveolar capillary blockage (i.e. block ability of the lungs to operate in simple words). MB clears the blockage within 24 hours and O2 levels start improving. Covid-19 is a more virulent strain compared to H1N1 and a fast acting drug is necessitated.
Due to the clinico/pathological resemblance between H1N1 & Covid-19 — final outcome is expected to be similar post administration of MB.
