We are not doctors and therefore cannot dispense medical advice, but we can tell you what worked for us and what has worked for many people. We have gathered a nationwide network of frontline physicians and have helped thousands of people survive Covid, healing from home. You do not want to end up in the hospital as many are refusing to treat with safe, proven treatments. They are eager to give you the toxic drug Remdesivir and then put you on a ventilator where you most likely will not survive.
Treat EARLY at home and LIVE. Treat LATE and you end up in the hospital where you run the risk of dying on a VENTILATOR. (70% don’t survive.)
Covid is a tricky illness. Be prepared. Have everything you need at home. Start treatment as soon as you have symptoms, even if you think it’s just a cold because it can advance rapidly and you are down for the count. Early at-home treatment is the KEY.
All suggestions on this page are directly from providers in our network who are currently treating Covid on the frontlines and are protocols we have used ourselves and they have worked for us and our loved ones.
Included in this page are the following:
**As always, run everything by your healthcare provider to ensure that it does not interfere with anything else going on with you. See full medical disclaimer at the bottom of each page.**
STUDY: The most recent study by Oxford University (randomized control trial) showed a 90% reduction in hospitalization for people with COVID.
COVID 911 Emergency Tools
The thing that sends most people to the hospital with Covid is “I can’t breathe,” due to the cytokine storm or a blood clot. You feel like you need oxygen. The following things have been identified as 911 Emergency Tools or Kit – things to have on hand to keep you from going to the hospital.
- Get a nebulizer ASAP. Get one on Amazon or Just Nebulizers or Vitality Medical or any other medical supply store. Or ask your provider can prescribe for you to pick up at your pharmacy. We recommend the desktop kind that plugs in, but the portable ones work as well, especially for travel. Our preferred brand is Pari. Make sure it has both the mouthpiece and the mask. Use the nebulizer with inhaled budesonide (see below) or other breathing treatments. You can share a nebulizer in a household. Just make sure to order the extra tubing and another set of masks + mouthpiece for each person. Most nebulizers come with one set for adult & one child.
- Find a provider to prescribe the safe, effective early treatments for Covid (such as inhaled Budesonide using a nebulizer). Inhaled budesonide has been proven by two RCTs at Oxford University to reduce hospitalizations by 90%. According to Dr. Richard Bartlett, Budesonide quiets the cytokine storm that causes inflammation leading to blood clots in the lungs. If you have a hard time finding a pharmacy to prescribe, go here to find one.
- Take low dose aspirin (81 mg) every night to prevent blood clots. You can get this at any drugstore or Amazon. This is a good daily practice.
- Get a pulse oximeter ASAP to measure your blood oxygen levels. Get at drugstore or Amazon. It is very important to monitor blood oxygen levels during Covid.
- Get access to supplemental oxygen. For quick emergency oxygen, get some Boost Oxygen to have on hand. It is available on Amazon or at any drugstore. In addition, keep Synergy Health in mind to contact to send supplemental oxygen to your home. They can work very quickly to get things set up at your home.
The OTC Viral Defense Basics
The following items have been gathered by our team who intensely studies all non-prescription items used for Covid. These items are based on recommendations by the world’s leading frontline physicians and have more than 150 studies proving efficacy with Covid.
Interested in getting all of these items listed in ONE box? Get your Covid Defense Box now! It includes all of the below in ONE box delivered to you (along with aspirin and a pulse oximeter mentioned above).
As always, run these by your wellness provider to ensure nothing interferes with your health conditions, allergies or current medications or supplements.
- Start taking the following immune strengthening supplements ASAP:
- N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (N-Acetyl-L-CysteineNAC) – 600-750 mg 2-3x a day on empty stomach. This supports healthy lung function and immune health. NAC is currently very hard to find. Try health food stores or compounding pharmacies.
- Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid or Liposomal C) – 1,000+ mg a day
- Vitamin D3 – 5,000-10,000 IUs a day
- Zinc –50 mg a day with food
- Quercetin – 500 mg a day
- **Or get most of the above (except the NAC) in an Immune Bundle. **
- Nasal budesonide (Rhinocort). This is getting harder and harder to find in store. Try your local pharmacy, Target, Walmart, or Amazon. Two sprays in each nostril once a day. You can do this prophylactically as well. This spray helps inhibit the cytokine storm.
- Any mouthwash that either says “kills 99.9% germs” or a whitening mouthwash with hydrogen peroxide. Listerine works. Gargle twice daily. This slows viral replication in mouth. This is a good daily practice.
- Loratadine (Claritin) (10 mg) once a day. This specific antihistamine helps with Covid. It helps dry up secretions, which helps to reduce congestion and cough. Only take this if you are symptomatic.
- Famotidine (Pepcid) (10-20 mg) daily to help dry up secretions. Famotidine has been proven to be one of the most important anti-inflammatory meds for Covid. You can get this at any drugstore or Amazon. Only take this if you are symptomatic.
- Melatonin – 10 mg a day at night. Melatonin has been shown to be one of the most important supplements in healing from Covid.
- Hydroshot on an empty stomach every morning. This hydrogen-infused drink really helps with energy and improves blood oxygen levels as well as any digestive issues.
- Silver Bullet with food in the afternoon. Do not take this if you are already taking zinc. This drink is especially good for those who are very symptomatic – it helps get zinc get into the cells very quickly. No other zinc supplement is needed when taking this.
In Hospital Protocols
The following are suggestions for you or for advocating for a loved one who is in the hospital and cannot advocate for themselves.
- Try to do the mouthwash listed above twice a day while in hospital, even if on oxygen.
- Try to move as much as you can. Get up, walk around if you can. Have hospital personnel move you. This helps gets your lungs activated to prevent or help treat pneumonia. Laying flat in a hospital bed is terrible for a Covid patient.
- DEMAND that you (or your loved one) be given the budesonide protocol (even if on ventilator). Some doctors or hospitals are refusing to treat based on a couple of reasons. See below.
- If the doctor is refusing to treat based on “budesonide is not FDA-approved for Covid,” we suggest the following arguments:
- Nothing is approved for Covid. Doctors are freely prescribing Zinc and Vitamin D. They are not FDA-approved for Covid.
- Doctors are freely prescribing many other drugs (like antibiotics and Tylenol) that are not FDA-approved for Covid. They are prescribing Tylenol for the SYMPTOM of headache and fever. Doctors can prescribe inhaled budesonide for the SYMPTOM of not being able to breathe, for patients saying “I can’t breathe” as it is FDA-approved for breathing symptoms and lung inflammation.
- Remind the doctor that budesonide is so safe that it is OTC in nasal sprays such as Rhinocort.
- Doctors prescribe for symptoms all the time. It is time for doctors to be doctors, to step up, be brave and save lives!
- Oxford University study proved 90% reduction in hospitalizations with inhaled budesonide.
- Also, you may want to use the Right to Try legislation.
- If the hospital staff refuses to treat with budesonide based on the excuse that the virus is aerosolized with a nebulizer and will be spread throughout the hospital, a suggested response is below:
- Request that the nebulized treatment be administered in a negative pressure room. Every hospital has one.
- Tell them you have a right to ask for a treatment that works. Patients have a right to choose the therapy they want.
- If they still refuse, our hospital insider (nurse/attorney/hospital administrator) suggests that you say the following: “I request an ethics consultation with the hospital ethics committee with a complaint of failure of communication.” This creates a legal record in case you need further legal recourse or action. Remember doctors have taken an oath to “do no harm.”
- Share the following studies with doctors and hospital:
- Common asthma treatment reduces need for hospitalisation in COVID-19 patients, study suggests (University of Oxford)
- Budesonide facilitates weaning from mechanical ventilation in difficult-to-wean very severe COPD patients
- Effect of nebulized budesonide on respiratory mechanics and oxygenation in acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome
- Insist on blood thinners – like full strength aspirin or Eliquis.
- Refuse (in writing) both Remdesivir (compromises your kidneys, less than 25% of people survive if taken more than two doses) and intubation/mechanical ventilation (less than 20% survive).
