How The Infection Occurs

This infection is a respiratory virus that is transmitted through the air by exhalation, cough, or sneeze from an infected person. To get the illness a health person must inhale the virus into their nose and lungs. In the air, the virus can be in three forms: Aerosolized, small water droplets, or large water droplets.

In the aerosolized form, it is a free-floating virus that is so light it can stay suspended in the air for quite some time. Fortunately, this form is rare. Both small and large water droplet forms are heavier than air and fall to the ground or surrounding surfaces within 6 feet of the infected person. Physical distancing and masks prevent the inhalation of the small and large water droplets. The aerosolized form can go through a mask, even an N95 mask. Again, this form is rare, so not to worry.

When the virus enters the airway of a healthy person a variety of immune system functions protect the epithelial cells that line the airways of the nose, mouth, trachea, and bronchial tubes. However, under the right conditions the virus can attach itself to an epithelial cell and inject its genetic material into that cell. It then hijacks the cell’s DNA to make new viruses.

Eventually, after a lot of new viruses have been made inside of that cell, the cell wall breaks down releasing more viruses into the airway. Some of those new viruses attach to more epithelial cells to make more virus and some are exhaled, coughed, or sneezed out of the newly infected person’s airway. They can now infect another person who inhales them. That is why an infected person might be able to transmit the virus before having symptoms of the illness.
After enough infected cells are damaged by the virus, an immune system response occurs, creating symptoms of fever (the virus cannot live over 101.5 F), cough (to get rid of the virus), fatigue and body aches (to keep you home so you do not spread it around), as well as other symptoms like headache, sore throat, congestion, diarrhea, etc.

It is an over reactive immune system response that causes the severe illness requiring hospitalizations. Medications like Hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Azithromycin can reduce the overreacting immune response, calming things down enough so the body can get rid of the invasion. Anti-inflammatory medications might be helpful.

Mild to Moderate Illness

Most people have a properly functioning immune system that will control the virus and eliminate it in 5-7 days with an illness much like the flu. The videos on this site will show you how to make a homeopathic remedy to treat this infection or you can purchase a homeopathic Nosode remedy (C-JP 30C) from The Healing Center (989-352-6500) for $18. This has proven to be highly effective and most people who take it recover in less than 5 days. Shipping is available.

More Severe Symptoms

In some cases, and we do not yet understand why, the inflammatory reaction in the airways of the lungs causes thin sheets of fibrin to be laid down over the inside lining of the bronchioles and alveoli. Fibrin is the material that makes up blood clots. The bronchioles are the smallest airways in the lungs. The alveoli are the air exchange sacs that transfer oxygen into the blood and carbon dioxide out of the blood.
This finding was recently confirmed during a phone conversation that I had with a New York City pathologist who has done about 20 autopsies on patients who have died from this infection. Because this occurs at the microscopic level this cannot be seen on x-ray or CT scans.

These thin sheets of fibrin begin to obstruct air flow and lower oxygen absorption. Oxygen levels go down and shortness of breath occurs. If the bronchioles become completely blocked, pneumonia can develop in the lung tissue behind the obstruction.

When oxygen levels get below 88, cellular damage begins to occur in the other parts of the body. If breathing becomes difficult or oxygen levels get below 92, you should go to the hospital for further evaluation. You can buy a pulse-ox monitor for around $30.

We are recommending the use of an enzyme Nattokinase 100-200mg and Homeopathic Lachesis 6C potency, each twice a day about 1 hour away from food. These two will dissolve the fibrin blood clots if they start to form in the airway. We suggest starting this as soon as you have symptoms. A positive test with no symptoms does not need treatment with these natural clot busters. However, when in doubt, take them. They cannot harm you when taken as directed for a week or two. They are available at most health food stores, Whole Foods stores, and online. A one-week supply of both is available at The Healing Center for $20. We have treated 10 people with low oxygen and they have improved in 2-3 days. Some people with low oxygen did not start this soon enough and had to be hospitalized.

Fatigue, Immune Systems Malfunction

After some viral illnesses (influenza, mono, hepatitis) in which the immune system which has been highly active, it might not reset itself back to normal levels and fatigue with flu like symptoms can persist for months and years.

A homeopathic remedy has successfully been used to reverse these symptoms in a week or two even if they have been present for a long time. The remedy is Homeopathic Gelsemium 200C, one pellet twice a day for five day. This potency is not available in most health stores, but you can order it. You can get it online for about $15 or you can get the five day supple from The Healing Center for $5.

Pulmonary Fibrosis

If the fibrin stays too long in the airways, it begins to organize. This means it begins to become more permanent and the tissue thickens and eventually forms scar tissue. This impedes air flow and oxygen exchange and reduces the elasticity of the lung tissue.

If a person is still having cough and shortness of breath symptoms after 2 weeks of illness, there is a good chance that scar tissue is beginning to form in the airways. This can lead to a serious condition called pulmonary fibrosis which is caused by calcification of the lung tissues.

The is no good treatment for this in traditional medicine except steroids and long-term use of steroids has serious complications. Early treatment with non-traditional medications can reduce the scar tissue and slow down the fibrosis process. Those treatments are: Selenium 200 mcg per day, Boron in the form of Calcium Fructoborate 240 mg twice a day, and homeopathic Thiosinaminum (Thios) 6C potency, one pellet under the tongue twice a day. These can be found at health stores, ordered online, or from The Healing Center. They should be taken for at least one month, perhaps two depending on symptom resolution.

Pulmonary fibrosis with calcification takes several years to develp in the presence of chronic inflammation. It is serious and because there are no effective treatments in traditional medicine, it is often considered a terminal illness. We have documented six cases of successful treatment of pulmonary fibrosis using Herbal Hydrangea 300 mg, three times a day and Homeopathic Calcarea Carbonicum 6 C once a day for three months, maximum. I would not recommend this treatment following this current infection but keep it in mind if calcification of the lungs begins to occur down the road.

Stress & Fear

Stress associated with worry about getting this infection and fear connected to political and economic effects of this situation can severely impair the immune system. Learning to relax and the use of daily meditation is recommended. The free Healing CDs found on this site can be extremely helpful. Reading my books, Put Your Health in Your Own Hands and A Shortcut to Success, might also be of benefit in dealing with the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our current situation.

Pandemic Preparedness Guide

The following is a summary of prevention and treatment of this virus.

Wearing a mask during close contract with an infected person can reduce the risk of infection. Physical distancing is helpful. Zinc 50 mg a day, Vitamin D3 5,000 units a day, Vitamin C 500 mg 3-4 times a day, and essential oil Thieves are great precautions.

Make your own homeopathic Nosode remedy if you get sick or purchase a homeopathic Nosode remedy made from an infected person from The Healing Center. See the videos on this site to learn how these are made.

Nattokinase 100-200 mg one capsule twice a day and Homeopathic Lachesis 6C one pellet twice a day under the tongue prevent fibrin blood clots from forming in the airway. These should be taken one hour away from eating. Have a two-week supply on hand in case you get infected.
Homeopathic Gelsemium 200C, one pellet twice a day for 5 days usually helps the chronic fatigue and flu like symptoms that might linger after this infection is controlled.

Selenium 200mg daily, Boron in the form of Calcium Fructoborate 240 mg twice a day and Homeopathic Thios 6C one pellet a day needed for persistent cough and shortness of breath if symptoms persist for more than two weeks.

Herbal Hydrangea 300mg three times a day and homeopathic Calcarea Carbonicum 6C once a day might help if you develop pulmonary fibrosis with calcification of the lungs. This treatment should be limited to three months and later repeated if symptoms return.
