The global coronavirus pandemic has impacted the entire population of the world in one way or another, and fears of infection have led to massive lockdowns, mask wearing and a massive push by pharmaceutical companies to inject an experimental treatment into the arm of every human on earth.
Yet with the failure of the COVID jab to prevent infection or transmission while at the same time causing serious side effects, many are turning to alternative natural treatments to prevent and treat COVID-19.
Among the most successful are:
- Glutathione and Vitamin C, both powerful antioxidants that support immune function.
- Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a coenzyme found in all living cells, and central to endothelial health and energy metabolism.
- Vitamin D3, which is readily manufactured by the body when the skin is exposed to natural sunlight.
When delivered by IV infusion, these potent nutrients provide support to your immune system, boosting your natural ability to fight COVID pathogens. If you do become infected and recover, your immune system will develop powerful antibodies that prevent reinfection and contribute to herd immunity among the population at large.
Comorbidities and Coronavirus
While the threat of becoming infected with the coronavirus is real, the truth is that the survival rate for all people under age 70 is 99.5% or higher, and 94.5 percent for people age 70 and older. Most of those infected will experience mild to moderate symptoms and fully recover.
According to statistics published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 94% of patients who died with COVID 19 in 2020 had an average of 2.9 lifestyle-related comorbidities.
The most prevalent co-existing conditions in those who died were:
- Heart Disease
- Complications From Tobacco Use
- Type II Diabetes
- Advanced Age
Taking proactive measures to modify your lifestyle while giving your immune system the nutrients it needs to do its best job are logical and effective strategies for mitigating the risks and outcomes of COVID 19.
Vitamin C and Glutathione: Powerful Antioxidants that Boost Immunity
Vitamin C and glutathione are both powerful antioxidants that are proven to fight cellular oxidative stress. Oxidative stress and inflammation have been found to increase the severity of COVID-19 symptoms, especially in people with comorbidities. New research shows that antioxidant supplementation is an effective strategy for combating COVID-19.
Deficiencies in Vitamin C and glutathione are common denominators in all severe cases of COVID-19. According to one research review, glutathione is considered to be a key guardian against infection in all human tissues, and boosting glutathione levels may play a critical role in extinguishing the severe inflammation that triggers organ failure in COVID-19 patients.
IV infusions of high-Dose Vitamin C and glutathione can give your immune system a boost to naturally fend off COVID-19. If you do become infected, this nutritional dynamic duo can significantly reduce the severity of symptoms and potentially save your life.
NAD+ Protects Cells and Strengthens Immune Function
A deadly and predominant symptom of COVID 19, and an emerging side effect from mRNA treatment, is endothelial inflammation and dysfunction. The endothelium is a single layer of cells that lines the arteries and capillaries of your circulatory system.
Damage to the endothelium can inhibit the ability of blood vessels to constrict and dilate, both essential functions that mediate blood pressure and facilitate oxygen delivery to the cells. Damaged endothelium can lead to the development of blood clots that block oxygen delivery to the heart and vital organs, and can lead to death.
According to one study, patients with severe cases of COVID-19 often present with comorbidities that have already done significant damage to the endothelium. When infected with the coronavirus, additional damage heightens the potential for deadly blood clots and endothelial inflammation that can cause fatal organ failure.
NAD+ has been shown to reverse endothelial dysfunction and restore healthy blood vessels. Proactively boosting your NAD+ levels via IV infusion can reduce your risk of life-threatening endothelial damage from the COVID-19 pathogen and its treatment.
Other Lifestyle Strategies for Fighting Coronavirus
- Stay hydrated. Chronic dehydration is common among non-athletic populations, and it can increase your risk of metabolic disorders. To optimize hydration, drink one ounce of pure filtered water daily for every 2 pounds of body weight. If you become severely dehydrated from the flu, consider IV hydration therapy to restore optimal fluid levels and essential electrolytes.
- Eat a nutrient-dense diet. Your immune system functions best when it has all the nutrients it needs to do its job. Ditch the sugar, grains and processed food, and zero in on fresh produce and sustainably raised protein. A high sugar diet causes inflammation that puts your immune system into overdrive, diverting it from fighting coronavirus pathogens.
- Manage stress. Chronic stress keeps your body in fight or flight mode, with elevated levels of stress hormones that cause metabolic disease and obesity, and undermine your immune function. Yoga, meditation, exercise and spending time in nature are all good strategies for reducing stress and promoting the release of feel-good hormones like serotonin and endorphins.
- Breathe. Deep breathing through your nose that engages your diaphragm enhances the production of nitric oxide, a powerful molecule that joins NAD+ in promoting endothelial health in your blood vessels. Damaged endothelial cells are drivers behind blood clots and inflammation associated with coronavirus death.
- Get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation undermines your immune system and contributes to chronic stress syndrome that leads to metabolic disorders. Most sleep experts recommend 7-9 hours of sleep per night.
- Go outdoors. Fresh air and sunshine provide oxygen and Vitamin D3, and spending time in nature combats chronic stress. Whether you take a walk in the park or just sit on a bench and enjoy Mother Nature, spending time outdoors every day will boost your natural immunity.
- Exercise. Regular exercise, especially resistance training, boosts your body’s natural production of glutathione and NAD and promotes the release of serotonin and endorphins. Exercise also dramatically increases the production of nitric oxide, to protect your arterial endothelium. And exercise enhances sleep quality, to give your immune system and extra boost
- Spend time with friends and family. A strong community is key to living a full and happy life and combating stress and loneliness. When you’re happy, your body secretes hormones that support immunity and promote good health.
