Tyler W. LeBaron, founder of the Molecular Hydrogen Institute, recently (April 25th) gave a wonderful explanation into the pathomechanism of SARS-CoV-2 virus, or COVID-19.
“The SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for COVID-19 enters the lungs, where it attacks the type 2 pneumocytes, alveolar cells responsible for the secretion of surfactants that reduce the surface tension of fluids in your lungs and are thus important for elasticity.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus uses a spiked protein to anchor itself to the ACE-2 receptor of the cell. This is how it gains entry and releases its positive-sense single-strand RNA into the cell. By inserting its RNA, the virus essentially hijacks the cell, as it triggers viral replication to occur inside the cell.
In response, macrophages (white blood cells) are activated to combat the infection, and they in turn release a variety of cytokines, including interleukin-6 (Il-6), IL-1 and TNF-alpha, into your blood plasma. Once the cytokines enter your plasma, neutrophils are recruited, thus increasing vasodilation (expansion of your blood vessels) and capillary permeability.
Inside the cell, reactive oxygen species (ROS) are also created in an effort to kill the infected cell and prevent viral replication. This is an essential part of your body’s defense system. However, as the process progresses you end up with increasing amounts of ROS and inflammation. Worse, as the virus continues to attack your type 2 pneumocytes, your lungs cannot work correctly.
As the surface tension of the fluids in your lungs is reduced, your alveoli can no longer maintain the proper gas exchange, and your oxygen requirement goes up. Declining elasticity of the lungs also makes breathing more difficult. Add in high amounts of ROS, and the whole alveoli ends up dying. This is part of what’s causing the cough.
As inflammation and vasodilation progresses, you can end up with low blood pressure, which is why you feel fatigued and weak. Lower blood pressure also causes low blood perfusion, which in turn means your cells will not get the oxygen and nutrients they need for optimal function. It also impairs metabolic waste removal. The low oxygen levels (hypoxia) result in feeling short of breath.
We all appreciate that we should eat real food, avoid processed foods and added sugar, get plenty of sleep, don’t sit all day or exercise too much, and manage our stress, but when it comes to preventing or treating a viral infection, these behaviors are a necessary base.
Our immune system utilizes the Th1 pathway to fight bacteria and viruses. In order to engage and support this pathway, we must dial in the following:
- Eat whole foods. Preferably those that are local, organic, and pasture-raised.
- Reduce sugar intake. White and brown sugar causes our bodies to become more acidic, which benefits the growth of bacteria. Our neutrophil’s (our killer white blood cells) phagocytic function (eating invaders) is reduced in the presence of sugar. Synthetic sugar alternatives such as Splenda are harmful to the nervous system and should also be avoided. Use maple syrup, local honey, or coconut sugar for sweetening.
- Prioritize antioxidant-rich foods, or eat the rainbow.
- Eat foods rich in vitamin A, C, and zinc. Learn more here (password Micro).
- Avoid phlegm producing foods such as dairy, processed grains, added sugar, and fried foods.
- Prioritize 8 hours of sleep a night
- To repair the body, the parasympathetic nervous system needs to be engaged. This requires you to avoid stress as much as possible.
- Prioritize getting out of a stressed mindset.
- Engage in activities you enjoy. Spend time with those you love.
- Balance how much you sit with how much you stand when working.
- Aim for 10,000 steps a day.
- Prioritize restorative movement such as qigong and taiji.
- Get a skin brush and start brushing your skin after showering in the morning, especially the head, neck and chest areas. This will stimulate lymphatic circulation and increase your general feeling of vitality and well-being.
- Gargle with saltwater after brushing your teeth, preferably with a full-spectrum natural salt such as Real Salt.
Like any viral infection, we want our immune system to resolve it efficiently. This means doing some foundational work to hopefully avoid any overt symptoms, but if you are symptomatic, knowing what you can do to support the fight and calm down the cytokine storm if you experience one. If you do experience symptoms, optimally you would work with a Chinese herbal practitioner to prescribe an herbal formula based on your personal presentation during and after the virus. See the stages of disease section for the differential.
To try and prevent an infection or optimize your body’s ability to resolve it, you can dial in the Four Fundamentals of Health, take the herbal formula in the Prevention section, and/or incorporate the following supplements:
- Vitamin C, which our bodies cannot make, is important to recycle glutathione.
- Vitamin D produces over 200 antimicrobial peptides which are used by your body’s innate immune response to kill invading pathogens.
- Vitamin A (retinol) enables our interferon system which is key is stopping viral replication, and regenerates mucosal barriers, such as the lungs.
- Zinc and selenium are cofactors to produce glutathione. Zinc has also been shown to inhibit the coronavirus’s RNA polymerase activity in vitro by blocking the replication of these viruses in cell culture.
- Quercetin has been shown to have antiviral bioactivity. It is also a Th2 modulator, which means it calms down the histamine response which contributes to the fluid accumulation in the lungs.
- Glutathione is our super antioxidant, and also an immune modulator. When sufficient, it enables our killer white blood cells, neutrophils, to eat infections via phagocytosis. When glutathione is insufficient, it creates more inflammation and damages the lung tissue.
- Note that acetaminophen (such as Tylenol), deplete’s the body’s glutathione reserves which not only reduces your body’s ability to fight a virus, but it also increases the risk of a bacterial infection. Ibuprofen isn’t great either since it reduces inflammation making the person more vulnerable to other infections.
- Magnesium to antagonize calcium which is pushed into the a cell infected with COVID-19, starting the inflammatory cascade that can lead to ARDS.
|Micronutrient||Preferred Type||Preventative Dose||Treatment Dose|
|Vitamin C||Liposomal||1,000 mg 1x/day||1,000 mg 3x/day|
|Vitamin D||D3 with K2||3,000 iu 1x/day||3,000 iu 3x/day|
|Vitamin A||Cod Liver Oil||3,000 iu 1x/day||3,000 iu 3x/day|

|Glutathione||Liposomal||Product recommendation||Double the dosage|
|Magnesium||Glycinate||200 mg 3x/day||200 mg 3x/day|
Duration: It is safe to take the above preventative dosages for several months. You may ask your doctor to tests for these. Aim for the upper end of the normal range. For the treatment dosages, it is safe to follow the above recommendations for up to two weeks.
SUPPORT NATURAL KILLER CELLS
- Astragalus, andrographis, and reishi are great herbs to support natural killer cells which are our first line of defense. Note that astragalus is the chief herb in the herbal formula listed in the Prevention section. You may find these herbs together in Innate Immune.
- Andrographis can be found in the Health Concerns product Clear Heat, which also contains great antivirals (isatis and lonicera). This would be contraindicated in those who present with the Damp-Cold pattern under the Stages of the Disease section.
In addition to the above, you may increase your Th1’s ability to fight a virus by using Pure Encapsulation’s Th1 Support product.
If you are someone who often gets sick and stays sick longer, your Th1 may not be strong enough to make the natural killer cells needed to deal with a viral infection. You can support this process with Innate Immune.
Black Currant Seed Oil is another great tool to support the innate immune system (Th1).
Cordyceps protects the cilia of the lungs, modulates cytokine response, and increases T-cell count.

I would appreciate you purchasing these supplements through my Fullscript account versus elsewhere to support me and my family while I am out of work due to COVID. Also note that this recommendation contains more than one product of the same category since these popular brands keep selling out. Only purchase one per category and be mindful of dosages.
Lauricidin is a great product to fight viruses, but it is only available on their website. Please follow their dosage instructions.
Apply essential oils before going out in public, either in the form of an anti-viral massage oil (applied to the chest, neck and lower arm areas) or an anti-viral “perfume” (applied to the area below the nostrils). During the bubonic plague in the middle ages, essential oils prevented the professions of perfumers (who exclusively worked with oils on a daily basis) and thieves (who fortified themselves with oils before burglarizing abandoned houses) to become ravaged by the pandemic. Since different viruses thrive in the environment every year, the types of appropriate oils also vary from year to year. Of the many types of essential oils available on the market, I have found that the following oils have proven to be most effective for the prevention and treatment of upper respiratory infections in early 2020:
- Tea Tree
- Cinnamon leaf
Any or all of the oils described above can be mixed together to produce an essential oil blend. Massage oils should incorporate 30 drops of essential oils per ounce (blended into a base of high-quality olive oil or apricot seed oil). “Perfumes” should be mixed 50/50 with a base oil like jojoba oil or apricot seed oil, and used by applying 1-2 drops of the blend to the area below the nostrils. Alternatively, according to a recent report I received, Chinese medicine practitioners during the 1938 epidemic in China successfully swabbed their nostrils with vinegar before seeing afflicted patients.
There were 3 studies using CM for prevention of SARS and 4 studies for H1N1 influenza. None of the participants who took CM contracted SARS in the 3 studies. The infection rate of H1N1 influenza in the CM group was significantly lower than the non-CM group (relative risk 0.36, 95% confidence interval 0.24–0.52; n=4).

To treat this disease effectively, climactic factors, clinical presentation and the basic disease mechanism must all be considered together. From this holistic perspective, COVID-19 can be assessed as a cold damp pathogen, which then further transforms into stagnant heat. Looking at the progression of symptoms, starting with early stage fever and chills; middle stage high fever and mental confusion and chest oppression with asthmatic obstruction; late stage fatigue, dry mouth, and lack of appetite, we can summarize the causative factors of COVID-19 as cold (han), damp (shi), heat (re), toxicity (du), stagnation (yu), and deficiency (xu). This basic outline can give us direction for treating COVID-19 at different stages of the disease.
The internal application of Chinese herbs has been proven effective in the prevention and treatment of both the COVID-19 and SARS strains during the 21st century coronavirus epidemics in mainland China. Here I will provide you with recommendations to prevent and treat the coronavirus.
During the infamous SARS outbreak 18 years ago the late Dr. Deng Tietao demonstrated that Chinese medicine treatment proved to be more effective than standard hospital procedures by saving the lives of all patients in his care at the Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of TCM. And we are seeing success with the use of these treatments with the coronavirus.
Once symptoms begin, there are two phases and numerous patterns to be differentiated by a Chinese medical practitioner to prescribe herbs:
- Wind-Cold Invading the Exterior
- Toxic Heat Attacking the Lungs
- Damp Cold in the Lungs
- Shaoyang Syndrome with Damp
- Damp Heat Afflicting in the Lungs
- Toxic Stagnation Obstructing the Lungs

Caution using anti-inflammatories for pain or a high temperature. If you need to, consider acetaminophen (paracetamol), such as Tylenol. No Motrin, Advil, ibuprofen, Naprosyn.
There seems to be a link between severe cases of COVID-19 affecting young people with no underlying illnesses and taking anti-inflammatories. Initial reports started coming from French doctors on Friday, March 13th. This has been confirmed by infectious diseases consultants. There are 4 young people in ICU in Cork who have no underlying illnesses – all were taking anti-inflammatories and there are concerns this has caused a more severe illness. French TV and radio apparently broadcast the same warning.
Antibiotics cause a delayed response to interferon, delayed viral clearance, and increased inflammation.

Dr. Vladimir Zelenko has now treated 699 coronavirus patients with 100% success using Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate, Zinc and Z-Pak [UPDATES] – 3/28/2020
Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a board-certified family practitioner in New York, successfully treated 350 coronavirus patients with 100 percent success using a cocktail of drugs: hydroxychloroquine, in combination with azithromycin (Z-Pak), an antibiotic to treat secondary infections, and zinc sulfate. Dr. Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours after treatment.
Note: See supplement section about the use of Zinc and Quercetin.
Hydroxychloroquine, a less toxic derivative of chloroquine, is effective in inhibiting SARS-CoV-2 infection in vitro
Clinical investigation found that high concentration of cytokines were detected in the plasma of critically ill patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, suggesting that cytokine storm was associated with disease severity12. Other than its direct antiviral activity, HCQ is a safe and successful anti-inflammatory agent that has been used extensively in autoimmune diseases and can significantly decrease the production of cytokines and, in particular, pro-inflammatory factors. Therefore, in COVID-19 patients, HCQ may also contribute to attenuating the inflammatory response. In conclusion, our results show that HCQ can efficiently inhibit SARS-CoV-2 infection in vitro. In combination with its anti-inflammatory function, we predict that the drug has a good potential to combat the disease. This possibility awaits confirmation by clinical trials. We need to point out, although HCQ is less toxic than CQ, prolonged and overdose usage can still cause poisoning. And the relatively low SI of HCQ requires careful designing and conducting of clinical trials to achieve efficient and safe control of the SARS-CoV-2 infection.
The researchers performed a study on 30 confirmed COVID-19 patients, treating each with either hydroxychloroquine on its own, a combination of the medicine with the antibiotic, as well as a control group that received neither. The study was conducted after reports from treatment of Chinese patients indicated that this particular combo had efficacy in shortening the duration of infection in patients.
- She worked with antibodies to target disease
- Developed a technology which she went on to patent (Protogen) that looked at the specificity of antibodies and profile antibodies in serum which led to the development of twenty different diagnostic assay to diagnose autoimmune disease and cancer.
- This technology was also used to review research results which she said often were incorrect. She led an organization which required researchers to correct their results.
- She systematically looked at every protein and characterized antibodies to reduce errors in research. She stated that there were a lot of antibodies sold that were not specific.
- She set up the Resource Center of the Human Genome Project where researchers could put their research into a global accessible depository. This would allow other researchers to validates results.
- This led to working within research integrity and assisting funding agencies.
- She was involving in developing the Meningitis B vaccine for Africa. She stated that the proteins alone were able to elicit an immune response without the need for adjuvants.
- She ran a Class II and Class III Safety Lab, and worked in a Class IV Safety Lab and worked closely with regulations. She stated, when licensing the lab, that they were told that they were individually financially liable for anyone who died in the lab, even if they had not done anything wrong. Also, if they were involved in releasing something that killed people, that you would be personally responsible and would be prosecuted.
Reviewing a graph presenting information from the director of the CDC around the flu season, Dr. Cahill summarized that influenza A, B and COVID-19 circulated from December to April, peaking in the US on March 22nd.
She stated that Immunologist never agreed with a lockdown or the quarantining of healthy people, and that people can just boost their immune system going into a flu season.
Another coronavirus, SARS, circulated the globe in 2003. The number of deaths globally was 770. There have been two more circulating since 2003, but between 7-15% of the global population already had antibodies. Even before COVID-19, if you tested people for antibodies, 7-15% of people would test positive. She states that the COVID-19 testing results are including people with past exposure to SARS. The other 90% of the population, a lot might have low levels of antibodies which are not detectable, or they don’t need to develop antibodies because they are not attacked by these viruses.
People are infectious for about 10 days and will have symptoms.
She discusses how people could boost their immune system, and those at high risk such as the elderly and those with cystic fibrosis should have quarantined and boosted their immune system, and if symptomatic, given hydroxychloroquine which was shown to be highly effective at blocking viral replication.
HEALTH AGENCIES AND GOVERNMENT
If they were working for us, they should have told us a virus is coming, to quarantine yourself at home if you were high risk and boost your immune system, and use hydroxychloroquine if you present with symptoms, which was used with SARS and in Wuhan with great efficacy.
NORTHERN ITALY (minute 30)
The 2017-2018 flu vaccines that were given were grown on dog tissue which are known to have coronaviruses. When someone who received this vaccine comes across a wild coronavirus, they have a cytokine storm. This viral interference is why we don’t have a SARS vaccine.
FUTURE VACCINE (minute 33)
She states that we don’t need another drug or vaccine, that hydroxychloroquine is sufficient, and anything developed should be compared to hydroxychloroquine. Also that a vaccine can never be current, and that it isn’t worth exposure to the adjuvants used today. She mentions that mineral oil is a sufficient adjuvant. Mandatory testing and vaccinations is not supported by the evidence and is against humanity.
SOCIAL DISTANCING & MASKS
TB, smallpox, and ebola are the only diseases that require social distancing. The masks create oxygen stress decreasing your immune system.
If people boost their immune system and mixed socially, we can stop the viral circulation. Cancer diagnosis have increased which could increase the number of deaths. Dr. Cahill is concerned that these deaths might be attributed to COVID-19 and inaccurately counted toward a second spike.
COVID-19 IS NOT NATURAL (minute 52)
She discusses how there are an additional 12 nucleotides which are not similar to other coronavirus which makes it easier for the virus to get into the body. It is well established that it was inserted back in 2006.
