    I took a lot of Zinc Gluconate powder yesterday, and also some Pepcid (Famotidine) + Benadryl. Today is my best day in the past 4 days. Also drank some oxidized C with methylene blue. Zinc seems to be very therapeutic for Asthma/breathing problems and I always forget about it.

    Today I'm breathing a lot better, just some slight lung pain but the breathing is definitely easier.

    I think the worst symptoms are the breathing difficulties, if you don't have those it's really great! All the deaths so far have been caused by this problem, and they all died in ICU with lots of oxygen and no carbon dioxide, which typically worsens the condition of the lungs.

    My lungs are my weakest link, so whenever I get sick, I really need to take it seriously because suffocating is a terrible feeling.

    I really think we both had the same thing. Had slightly elevated temps for many days, and overall feeling of malaise. With the breathing impairment.

    High doses of methylene blue, like 10mg every three or four hours are best ime

    Hope you feel better hamster and anyone else who is sick

    I just heard about someone who was diagnosed with COVID over the phone - so they’re doing that now?!

    I'm in the U.S. My dad's friend just went to the doctor with the typical symptoms. He was told to self-quarantine for two weeks unless he worsens, in which case he should call the ER. He wasn't tested.

    I did take 15mcg or T3 recently but my temp is almost 102F.

    I don't know if it's just me, but 15mcg of T3 is way too much. Like 90% of that is going to get converted to reverse-t3.
    Nibbling small amounts throughout the day is the only way this works I think.

    What do you have available as remedies @ecstatichamster

    Lots of people take that much at once. I don’t usually but I did now. It isn’t turned into rT3. I believe T4 turns into rT3. T3 turns into other metabolites.

    Europe PMC
    Brain-dead organ donors are depleted of circulating triiodothyronine (T3) and show features suggestive generally of anaerobic metabolism at the tissue level, accompanied by deteriorating hemodynamic function. The principle of single-bolus kinetics with labeled carbon compounds (14C-R), with subsequent measurement of both plasma activity and of exhaled 14C O2 has therefore been used to study glucose, pyruvate, and palmitate utilization under conditions of (1) sedation, (2) brain death, and (3) brain death with T3 therapy in the baboon. Serum lactate and plasma-free fatty acid concentrations were also measured. There was a major change in metabolic oxidative processes following brain death. The rate of glucose, pyruvate, and palmitate utilization was markedly reduced, and there was an accumulation of lactate and free fatty acids in the plasma, indicating a general change from aerobic to anaerobic metabolism. The administration of T3 to the brain-dead baboon resulted in a dramatic increase in the rate of metabolite utilization, and a reduction in the plasma concentrations of plasma lactate and free fatty acids, indicating an apparent reversal from tissue anaerobic to aerobic metabolism. We suggest that T3 should be administered to all brain-dead potential organ donors to correct and maintain a more physiologic metabolic status and thus to improve organ function.

    Ok. Not here to argue. Do what you feel is best, I'm just pretty certain that is an unphysiological dose and should be split into smaller pieces.
    Hope you get better.

    Do you ever tape your mouth at night. Also I've begun to realize the complimentary nature of Mildronate with Buteyko practices. Works the other end of problem by getting the cell to produce more carbon dioxide.

    Just got over something. It wasn’t the worst thing I had but I actually got on top of this one early. Mild fever. Had headaches for 24 hours at a time, literal dripping nose, not very much coughing thankfully. The fatigue lasted a good 7 days after the flu-like symptoms ceased. I’ve never had headaches, dripping nose and fatigue quite like this. Or maybe I have and just forgot because the media were not broadcasting fear porn.

    I ate lots of black tea and button mushrooms. Maybe they made the difference.

    I am experiencing some mild flu like symptoms mainly the headache is typical of a flu, but now has rather toned downed a lot.
    It all started last Monday (23rd of March) after feeling excellent all of the sudden I got a massive headache and I started to feel really cold. I had quickly went and placed my feet in hot water with with a bit of ACV in it.
    The next day I was rather feeling hot waves instead of cold waves. The next day I did not had these symptoms.
    Some muscle aches.
    Smell sense it is not ultra sharp, I can smell lots of things, but unlike before I cannot pinpoint where they are coming from.
    Ability to feel taste is reduced.
    But no high temp at all so far, no coughing, no chest tightness so far.
    Nose slightly stuffed sometimes.
    Slightly dizzy.
    In the morning I wake up having to spit a bit of greenish stuff from the top portion of my neck, not coming from the chest.

    My vision is blurry now more than it is usually as lately I have been battling this blurry vision going from mild to to ignorable to lots of blurriness.


    I have been taking MB around 2mg, 4mg and 5mg per day.
    B1, B2, Pregnenolone, Androsterone I am taking each day anyway.
    E, A, D, K2
    Lysine, Glycine, Aspirin
    Copper 1mg or 2mg and Zinc 30mg
    Vit C small 1g dose, seems I get easily irritated by it on the intestine side, not stomach side. Otherwise I would take much more.
    Gargles bicarbonate or hydrogen peroxide

    I felt very intensely ill for one day last week. I had severe fatigue, body aches, headache, low appetite and kidney pain but no respiratory symptoms. I did not have a fever and my body temperature was actually lower than normal. I slept most of the day and night (about 20 out of 24 hours) and drank broth and mineral water to help me stay hydrated. I was naturally a bit apprehensive because I work in a hospital but I got over it quickly and feel fine and back to normal now.

    How are your symptoms today? How is your intestinal function?

    My stomach hurts a little bit, probably from a lot of things that I’m taking. I have 103° temperature at times pretty bad, but right now I don’t feel that bad even though my temperature is almost 103.

    I do bag breathing all day and every time I do bag breathing I feel so much better. I don’t have a cough and I’m not letting myself cough.

    Can you go for a walk or does that get you out of breath? It could help your digestion move a bit faster. Do you have cascara? Emodin is helpful for this virus.

    Since your temperature is 103, you're definitely fighting something, you should up your anti-viral intake.

    Have you taken vitamin C with Methylene Blue? I found that if you mix both together in water and shine some red light on the glass and then take it, it was really helpful.

    yes a lot of c. 40g or so And maybe 25mg of methylene blue in divided doses.
    I can walk without getting out of breath. I might try but I don’t feel like it.
