Dr. Earl discusses the latest chloroquine, pepcid and vaccine studies and how it relates to the latest coronavirus. He also discusses some of the correlations that are seen with an increase in COVID-19 and what you can do to better protect yourself.
Dr. Earl goes over his general thoughts about COVID-19 regarding medical, economic, political and social. On the medical side, he discusses what to do if you have symptoms. Regarding economic, Dr. Earl discusses the importance of continuing to support local businesses and the importance of being cautious that we’re not giving away too many of our freedoms as we are protecting ourselves from the virus. With all the lockdowns and quarantine, it’s a great time to solidify our tight-knit groups like family and close friends. Take this time to strengthen those.
COVID-19 is affecting everything and has turned everyone’s lives completely around. Instead of focusing on things that we can’t do, we need to be taking advantage of things that we can do. It’s a great time to strengthen our family relationships and start things that we’ve wanted to do for a long time but kept putting off. Start cooking from scratch, bake with sourdough, write a journal, paint and get back into art or get that house or yard project done that you’ve been putting off for years. It’s a time to slow down so take this time to de-stress and learn how to meditate or start yoga.
When it comes to preventing and fighting against things like viruses, the state of our immune system is extremely important. And sleep is the #1 thing we need to watch. Just because you don’t need to be at the office by 8am, doesn’t mean you can party like it’s 1999 every night and go to bed at 3am (even if those parties consist of just you and the TV or a bottle of wine). Get your sleep. If you need to, set a timer on your phone to remind you to go to bed at a reasonable time.
Reducing your stress is another key factor. Turn off the news and social media if it’s stressing you out. Writing is a great way to deal with stress.
Hydration is the third most important factor. Drinks like hydration, coffee and sugary drinks will dehydrate you so eliminate or keep to a minimum.
Another important factor is eliminating processed foods, eating whole foods and including more vegetables and salads into your diet. Dr. Earl goes into the right supplements to take in the next blog article and video.
In this video, Dr.Earl discusses what he’s personally doing to help strengthen his immune system during the Coronavirus epidemic. Our health needs to be a huge priority whether we’re facing an epidemic or not. The reality is, practicing good health and prevention today can lead to a much more enjoyable life tomorrow.
Here’s Dr. Earl’s daily protocol
Start the day off with around 1 TBS apple cider vinegar (raw with the “mother”) and 1/4 tsp of baking soda mixed with some water to kickstart your digestive system
Take a good multi vitamin (make sure it is as natural and bio-available as possible)
Take 1 scoop (4g) of BioActive-C which is critical to keep the immune system in balance and help the body fight off infections and viruses as well as helping the adrenal glands fight stress (visit WorldsGreatestVitaminC.com for more information about BioActive-C)
Vitamin D is also critical for the immune system. Get around 15 minutes of sun exposure on as much skin as possible around lunch time (but not enough to burn the skin), otherwise take a vitamin D supplement
Take a healthy dose of a quality fish oil for your essential fatty acids
Take some turmeric to help modulate the immune system
Many people ask Dr. Earl about zinc. Zinc is great when it comes to helping the body fight off infection and viruses, however it has a hard time getting into our cells. Zinc needs a helper to open the door to let it in. You may have been hearing a lot about hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine – these drugs do a great job of making zinc more available to your cells. A natural alternative to hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine is quercetin and fisetin, which are found in strawberries, apples, persimmons, onions, and other plants.
If you think you have COVID-19, the first thing you should do is call your doctor or clinic, rather than rushing to the hospital. See what their recommendations are based on your symptoms and health status. Many times they’ll want you to ride it out at home.
There are many ways to help strengthen your immune system to fight COVID-19. Some of these are natural methods and some are prescription options. In this video, Dr. Earl discusses various routes and methods that you can employ to help you get over coronavirus and back to feeling great again. One of the first things is to be patient and understand that your body needs to build up the immunity and this can take time.
If you haven’t seen our other video on preventing COVID-19, we recommend watching that and continue with those recommendations while also incorporating something like echinacea, collodial silver or oregano as well as increasing your Vitamin C intake. Don’t overload with too much zinc – more is not necessarily better.
If you’re getting worse and need to see a doctor, there are a few options they may recommend including hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine combined with zinc or the ECG vaccine which helps regulate immune system. There are also anti-virals that your doctor may recommend which may include remdesivir, lopinavir, or ritonavir. If you also have a bacterial infection with COVID-19, they may start you on a Z-Pak. Please keep in mind Z-Paks only work against bacteria. In other words, it doesn’t directly help against COVID-19 but it helps get rid of the infection so your body can focus on fighting COVID-19 instead of trying to fight 2 things. So, in other words don’t take Z-Pack unless you need to, otherwise you’re bombarding your system.
In this episode, Dr. Earl discusses the various myths and truths regarding the many natural products out there claiming to help protect people from coronavirus.
Sometimes a lot of the things that can help us when we’re sick aren’t the best things to take when we’re not sick. A strong immune system is important but overloading it with all sorts of good products at once can cause more issues. Dr. Earl discusses the balance and fine line between doing what benefits your body vs too much of a good thing.
Dr. Earl also goes over what you should (and shouldn’t) be doing to help protect yourself from COVID-19 as well as what to do if you get it. A few of the topics include: zinc, Vitamin C, apple cider vinegar, diatomaceous earth, aloe vera, whey protein, and how NSAIDs like ibuprofen can affect your system.
